My Christmas Wishlist so far! + a small update!

Well hello there, strangers. I'm so sorry at how absent I've been, and I've really missed blogging :( I've been totally swamped with school exams and revision and coursework, but everything is finished now until January so expect to be seeing me a lot more over the next few weeks! :-)  

and I thought I'd pop something a little more interesting than a short and simple update in this post, so I thought I'd share what I have my eye on for Christmas! 
1. Casio Digital Watch - Urban Outfitters - £30
2. Skull Ear Phones - Urban Outfitters - £15
3. Purple Velvet Corset - Topshop - £30
4. Blue Velvet Brothel Creepers - Topshop - £55
5. Knitted Ombre Jumper - Topshop - £42
6. Striped Skinny Jeans - Motel Rocks - £48
7. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm - - £21.50
8. Kurt Geiger London Garda Wedges - Kurt Geiger - £75
9. Jemma Kidd Make-up School Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Cream - - £17 

Wishful thinking I know, but just a few things I've been eyeing up over the past few days. What are you guys lusting over for Christmas?

And I'm on the look out for a nice winter coat, or parka but I can't seem to find any decent ones anywhere! If anyone could recommend any stores/websites etc that sell nice winter jackets/coats then that would be such a massive help! :-) 

'Til next time,

October Obsessions!

Well hello. Yes, I know this post is a little late but hey ho, I've be enjoying a lot lovely products/clothing this month and I really wanted to share them with you guys. :-)

Skin Brightening Toner - Botanics @ Boots - £4.07
I love this toner because I feel it takes the redness out of my skin really well, and I do feel  that my skin looks a lot more "brighter" which I need for the dull winter months. And most of the ingredients are natural so that's always a plus! 

Patent White Doc. Martens - Ebay - £55
My boyfriend was kind enough to get these for me as I've been lusting over them forever!  Definitely my favourite of my favourites haha. Haven't taken them off since I got them, and they're really good quality and the seller he bought them from on Ebay got them delivered really quickly, and they were a really good price, and I totally recommend them. Ah I love them so much :-)
Conditioning Clay Mask - Botanics @ Boots - £4.29
My skins been looking really tired, and dull lately but I feel this mask brings 'life' back into it as cliché as it sounds. But I find it's easy to apply, and easy to remove which I don't seem to get with many clay masks. It leaves my skin looking refreshed and moisturised instantly!
Express Finish 40 Nail Polish - 865 Turquoise Green - Maybelline - Boots - £4.09
This is an amazing colour (It's on my middle finger in the picture) and it applies so easily! I've worn it the majority of this month! 
Urban Decay Primer Potion - Sample size from the Naked palette
I love this! Definitely getting the larger version when this one runs out.  It makes my eye-shadow  go on so smoothly and it prevents creasing and makes the eye-shadow colour stand out. Don't know what I did without it! :-) 
Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate - Rimmel London - Boots - £5.99
As you can see this is such a nice shade. It's a very deep, purple, which looks really flattering on me, and dark lips are definitely on trend! 
Ultra Shines Lipgloss - Spiked Punch - Benefit - £14ish
Such a beautiful colour, even though it's very "summer" I've been making it work for autumn/winter by appling it over darker/deeper lipsticks and it looks beautiful. Really glossy and tastes amazing! Also looks really nice worn alone, and it has such great pigmentation it looks, and feels as it's not sticky at all, just like a really glossy lipstick.

Stay Matte Pressed Powder - Rimmel London - £3.99 - 003 Golden Peach
I really like the texture of this powder, and I love the way it looks on my skin, really matte but not cakey :-)  Although it doesn't last too long, which isn't a massive deal for me since my skin isn't very oily! 

E.L.F Cream Eyeliner - - £3.50 - Coffee
Soo glad I bought this! It applies really smoothly, and has great pigmentation, and does not budge! Brilliant for school/college/uni/work etc. as it looks the same at the end of the day, when you first applied it. and it's cheap! what more could you want?! 

   Nars Blush - Deep Throat - 29€ - Sephora in Paris
Bought this in the summer while I was at paris, and only now I'm starting to wear it! Really didn't like it much when I got it, but I really like the look of it on my skin now, I don't know why! It's a really pretty deep pink with gold shimmer and it stays on all day. 

Sleek Blush - SuperDrug - £4.29 - Life's a Peach
Looks really flattering on my cheeks, so easy to wear :-) 
Urban Decay Naked Palette - £35 - Debenhams
I love all of the colours in this, I there hasn't been a day where I haven't worn it since I've got it, totally worth the money! :-) 
Mac Satin Lipstick - Rebel - £13.50
I love this colour! It's so unique, and this lipstick stays on forever! Also, the shade is perfect for Autumn/Winter , it's still somewhat bright but it's also a pretty deep pink/purple. Ah I love it, it's perfection!

Daisy "So Fresh" Perfume by Marc Jacobs - Boots - £42 - 75ml
Such a fresh scent and I love it so much. Can't get enough of it :-) 
Strapy Wedge/Platforms - H&M - £19.99
I've also been wearing these at every chance I can. I love them! So easy to walk in due to the platform and how light-weight they are, and they look great with anything. I'm obsessed! :-)

Hope you enjoyed, and I hope I get to do a "favourites/Obsessions" post every month as I love showing people what I've been loving, and I love seeing what other people love. Have you done an october favourites? Link it below and I'll be sure to check it out  :-)

Also, I'm on the look-out for a really pretty purple toned blush, and a deep, red lipstick, any suggestions leave them below!
