♥ Waxed Jeans & Golden top

This is what I wore a couple of days ago.. also bought a couple of days ago. Sorry about crappy outfit pics again! Im having major issues with my camera.. turns out when using the self timer it focuses when you PRESS the button (10 sec before it takes the pic), not right before the picture is taken..

help.. anyone? I'm using the Sony NEX C3 (compact dslr)

Well I bought these in Zara (with the cardigan I wore a couple of days ago).. 

 Sorry about the socks!

The top is gold shimmering as you might see in this pics!

Yeah, I tried to take pics in basically every room lol..

How do you like this outfit?

♥ What's in my bag (and make up bag)

I thought I'd do a "what's in my bag post" .. so here you go.. when I took these pics I realize I dont bring a lot of things with me? At least not compared to other pics I've seen..

Gloves.. make up bag, pencil case, wallet, keys, oyster card, hand cream, McDonalds napkins (lol), iPhone, headphones, Umbrella (yeah I live in Ldn)

And then you might wonder what's in my make up bag.. here you go:

-A all round balm (to use on lips, cuticles etc.) sometimes I use Lush Lemony flutter etc.
- Facemist.. I use this after I've been gym.
- A small perfume
- The lipstick or lipgloss I'm using that day..

So no there's not really any actual Make up in my bag.. I don't see the point of carrying make up with me.. anyone want to tell me?

What do you always carry in your bag, and make up bag?
Do u use any of these things?

♥ Rituals review

So Im going to a review of the Rituals Wai Wang- Organic White Lotus & Yi Yi Ran. I dont really do reviews usually, but I would like to recommend this so here you go.

Rituals Organic Cherry & Rice Milk, Ultra rich whipped body cream


It smells amazing.. honestly im not one for flowery smells but I love this one!
And the consistency is really creamy as you can 

No offence to any beauty blogger but it feels so stupid putting pics like this up but at least you can get an idea of what it's like. 

Rituals Wai Wang, Organic White Lotus & Yi Yi Ren body scrub
Read more about it here & the ingredients

This scrub smells amazing too!

I dont know if you can see but the beads are quite big which I like.. I think a
body scrub should exfoliate properly.

Oh, and Rituals have a shop at Westfield (the real westfield in west lol) but I haven't seen these products there. I saw them as a gift set in House of Fraiser though.

Have you tried Rituals products? I did see that some of you got some Ritual products in a Glossy box or one of those other boxes.. what were they like?

♥ Maybelline Gel Liner

Maybelline Gel Liner review

So this is me wearing the gel liner.. I like it! It was easy to apply, although I was a bit worried what the result would be like since I've never used a non-liquid eye liner before.

What do you think of this eye liner?

Sorry about the crappy pictures.. not focused where they should be, my camera is Not working with me atm.

Yeah it comes in this tiny jar, I think it's quite nice..

You also get a brush with it which I think is really good, whether it's good or not? I suppose it is, I have no experience in this kind of eye liner, nor this kind of brush but it worked fine for me :)

Have you tried this? Are you going to?
What type of eyeliner do you use?

♥ Bobbi Brown make up brushes

Update: These are actually fakes. Read an explanation in THIS post. If you have bought something similar and it's less than £80-£100 you could almost be certain they are fake since the real set in around £140. Just contact the seller and he will most likely get scared and give your money back, mine did.

I bought these make up brushes from Bobbi Brown, thats about time since I dont have any proper brushes!

Bobbi Brown luxury make up brush 10 piece set with case and box. 

This is soo helpful for me, they all say what kind of brush they are, here: bronzer, face blender, blush

And on the other side they just say Bobbi Brown..

is anyone using these? Are they good.. 
if not.. what brushes are you using?

♥ Seche Vite results..

One coat of Boots N7 polish, can you believe how covering it is?

I can't stress enough how good the Boots N7 polishes are. I only have this one & I had forgotten how good it is. They are £7 which I wouldn't normally spend on a polish so make sure to use those £5 vouchers !! (if they still do them?)

So I bought this the other day. I posted a pic of the results this morning on facebook, twitter, instagram, tumblr (the last three are linked lol)

I painted my nails this morning so I can't say how long it last, what the chipping is like etc.
I can say that it's glossy though and that it dried really fast..

What do you think of this, have you tried it?
