Guess where I went to... $

Go on, I dare you to guess!!!

Haha! This was two weeks ago actually, but I'm trying to spread my blog posts out a bit. Besides, this isn't really much to do with beauty. I just want to share some piccies :)

My housemate, Viv (who you will see below and have seen in some other blog posts too), and I took a little trip to Bournemouth whilst it wasnt too cold.

The sea wasn't so friendly, but it was super pretty!

It was just so fun to be spontaneous (we only decided to go the night before) and adventurous!

Of COURSE I had to do some cheer poses by the sea :D

This is called a wing-man!

Got a bit chilly and thirsty, so we stopped by Weatherspoons for hot choccie! The barmaid gave us extra cream because she made us wait ages since they didn't have any cups XD Heart-attack in a lick!

Twas yummy though!!

I wrote my name in the sand :)

Check out my handy work!! Pro, right? I have been writing my name like this for years now! I quite like the rock on the right side of the 'n' too. Adds a touch more... beachy-ness!

Gosh, can you tell I love red skies? Makes me happy :)

This cheer pose is 'the pizza box'. Haha!

Viv and I in front of the beauts sky!

And just so this still has a beauty element to it, here is my latest video if you haven't seen it.

I'm sorry about the annoying phone!!!! I can't help it now :( I will throw my phone to the other side of the room for my next video!

Love love and Bournemouthlove!!

Blue is the new envy...

Hello! Pre-post warning, this is a little bit picture heavy, but I love photos! Don't you?

Yesterday, I took a little shopping trip with my friend Larissa, who also blogs (but in Portuguese as she is Brazilian)! We also stopped by Pizza Express for dinner! Yum...

The only place I bought was Superdrug! I took a look around and Larissa nabbed the last Dusky Mauve (313) Barry M nail paint for me! She knew my sister-in-law wanted it and so I bought it for her, along with the Nail Effects (311) for myself! Larissa had shown me hers and I got very excited by it, so I'm glad I got it! I'm sure you've all seen it before, but I will probably be posting some pics with colours that I think will work with it :)

This is the Dazzle Dust I got. (3 for 2 on all cosmetics!) The lighting is awful as I was taking these in the dim Pizza Express lights... but the colour is a gorgeous intense blue. The shade is 22, named Electric Blue. I am so envious of blue eyes, and the closest I can get having blue eyes is either blue contacts or blue eyeshadow. So for now, whilst I don't quite have enough to spend on contacts, I shall stick to eyeshadow! Hopefully I will be able to post some pics of any looks I create! Excited much? YES!!!

Larissa wanted to check out the new Tartan sets collection, so we popped into Selfridges.

This is the palette she bought, with two blushers and one face powder. I have to admit, the packaging is quite nice. I like the furry feel and the badge! The full-size mirror has also got me tipping over the edge, but alas I didn't spend any monies.

Take a closer look! Sorry about the lighting again... This is the Hark The Heraldry Face Kit!

We did also stop by Primark, but I didn't buy anything! However, I bought these booties from Primark when I went last weekend with my housemate... oops!

They look so cute though, right?? I spotted a khaki green and a dark grey version too!

I tried to be artistic with this photo, but the unsteady hand and the dirty mirror didn't really help...

I miss ballet... and well all dancing! I was actually tapping in the street this morning as I was waiting for the bus since it was so cold and my toes were freeeeeeeezing!
But for £15, Primark has done it again. Only downside is they're quite tight around the ankles and so unless you're super skinny then its only tights, leggings and jeggings with these. Probs skinny jeans too!

Here we have some random pics from the last two days :)

Went to Hamley's!
So this Lego dude was quite little, but he was made out of LEGO!!!!! I love Lego. I really do. I wish it would go back to the old style! My brother used to make space ships :)

Because I think this is adorable!!!! I wanted to buy a Christmassy one, or a My Melody one! They have My Melody's in the Build-a-bear workshop and I might have to get one... LOL

I do really like the star net lights, but the Narnia displays are a bit rubbish...


Oh damn. I totally forgot what store this is, but it's on Regent Street. I LOVE the doorway!

What do stars do? They shine!
(I hope you know this quote isn't actually from Stardust...)

Love love and bluelove!!

* London Eye at Night with Aussie & Fireworks! *

The very lovely Emma from Aussie kindly invited all the angels to a bonfire night "Take the Heat" VIP event! They had two events, and I attended the London one which took place at the London Eye!

This is the eye from the ground as we gathered before we took a ride around :)

You might recognise these gorgeous faces! Natalya from filthygorgeousmakeup and Amber who is one of the Aussie stylists!

It was amazing being so high up at night! And it was rather clear, considering :)

I brought along my housemate, Viv! Isn't she so cute? She makes the BEST tea!

The Aussie girls booked out two pods so we were seperated for a while (there was 50 of us!) but here you can see the other group :) well, kinda...

We had a lot of champagne that night! And they had some very interesting canapes too! The views were beautifully breath-taking and there were fireworks popping up everywhere upon the skyline! We also got to go around twice, which was awesome!!!

We then headed for Covent Garden and everyone assumed we were getting public transport, but we all gasped and squealed when we realised where we were being led!
Straight to two giant Hummer limosines!!!
There was a white one two :) And of course I do a cheer pose!

This is inside the limo where we chatted and drank more champs!

Check it out! It's like they were trying to get us drunk or something!!!

We made it to the bar where we were greeted with yet MORE champs and a few more foodie bits! There were sequins on the table so I put one on my face :D

This is another angel, who I have forgotten the name of! Damn the champs lol!

It was such a good night, but I had to leave early as Viv had friends coming over! We were a little tipsy on the way home though :P Thanks Aussie!!! x

On the Saturday 6th Nov, the other housemate and I took a little trip to Battersea with some friends to watch the awesome 20 minute firework display! I managed to get a couple of songs on video so these shall be up soon! For now, enjoy these piccies :)

How good are my photography skillz??

Fireworks are so pretty! They went really high and the noise didn't even bother me :)


And here are a few more pics, just because.

Viv: Let me take a picture of you getting in!

Longing for Big Ben!

I there, smiling! Can you see me?


I really do love Big Ben!

It's just so pretty :)

Anyway, here is a song I've been obsessed with for the last two days. It's so cute!

Hope you enjoy!

Love love and fireworkslove!!
