A nail lovers gift idea from me featuring E.L.F

I have a problem. I simply do not have enough nail polish....

Ok that's a blatant lie but I do have very few Jewel tones in my collection and this set of 14 polishes for £15 from E.L.F came at the perfect time. 

At time of purchase they were doing a special offer on orders over £30 so for £20 I got this and some others lovelies I can't talk about (santa's secret!) 

Below I have swatched each polish with only 1 coat and the quality is amazing considering I got them for less than a £1 each! Every colour was fast drying, opaque in 1 coat and the glitters were jam packed and smooth to the touch so no need for top coat
L-R: Desert Haze | Glamour Girl | Gold Star (layered over Desert Haze)
L-R: Blushing Beauty | Taupe Of The World (now you know what Taupe is)| Smoky Brown 
L-R: Misty Haze (this will replace my much used Barry M Grey)| Dazzle Diva | Chic Confetti 
L-R: Red-y or Not | Cherry Bomb | Violet Velvet
L-R: Green Machine (this is the perfect green!) | Sea Escape

They're not massively long lasting without the aid of a top but given the price that's not a huge issue.

Mucho impressed!

A Star Is Born

Lady Gaga is an absolute star. 

Before, during, and I dare say after, A Star Is Born I have loved Gaga. There’s a narrative going about during their press junket that Bradley Cooper had to push hard to get film execs on board with casting Gaga as Ally in the latest adaption and, if true, that bugs me because having seen it I genuinely feel that there is no one else that could have played her. Ally’s character has clearly been moulded around her talents - as with Barbara we have abandoned the movie star goals focussing solely on music - and I would love to know exactly how much was changed or added after casting. Bradley Coopers’ Jackson Maine cuts more of a sympathetic character than we’ve seen in previous versions of A Star Is Born, right back to the original 1937 film which inspires some of the more selfless themes in the 2018 reboot, so much so that it makes you wonder who the film is really about. 


The women of A Star Is Born have always been iconic and Lady Gaga’s portrayal takes n…

Monday mane-tenance

You may roll your eyes at the, painfully, alliterative title but I was really proud of that when I thought it up at stupid o’clock last night. After close to a decade of blogging in some form or another it gets hard to come up with these things!

As you might have guessed we’re here today today to talk about my Monday night hair ritual. You’ve heard of Skincare Sunday, well this Monday Mane-tenance. Every week - pretty much - I give my hair a loving boost with some form of deep treatment. My current favourite combo - in an effort to try and keep my colour between hairdresser appointments - is the Clairol Colour Booster in copper and the infamous £1 Argan Oil hair mask available from Poundland. 

There are a number of colour boosters on the market at the minute. I had been toying with buying the Maria Nila luminous colour masques on the Sally’s website when I came across the Clairol version in store in Superdrug. Half the price and right in front of my face. Just how I like it. I’ve bee…

Belfast Fashion Week House Of Fraser Press Preview

Michelle & I were very excited to get an invite to the Belfast House Of Fraser Spring/Summer Press Preview recently. Now unfortunately it was a bit far for Michelle to commute (this time!) but I, luckily, had the day off work and went to have a nosy along with a few other FABB bloggers!
