Scouse brow

For my readers in the UK you may be aware of the term Scouse brow? if not then i'll elaborate on it. Basically its an over emphasized brow that is quite thicker and darker than usual. Well I thought i'd attempt what it would look like on me. I don't think they look too bad, done correctly although they are worn my a lot of blondes who use a dark brown pencil or shaddow which I must say is a little daring. The scouse brow originated from the show desperate scousewives and if you just google 'the scouse brow' you'll see some horrendous extremes of it. I'm all for defining brows but I don't know if it's just me or do you guys hate when people literally look like they have sharpee'd there brows on, where the end is just as thick as the start.. like giant black tape on their face eugh!
 So below i'll go through it with you..

Haha, so guys to scouse or not to scouse that is the question?

Poppy: how to wear

As many of you may be aware that November isn't just a celebration of fireworks and bonfires but it also a month which we dedicate to our brave and heroic soldiers who have fought in the war for this very country and our existence and free rights today. A way of respecting this tradition our nation wears a poppy to resemble the poppies they lay down of the soldiers but to rest. Now poppy's may be a traditional thing but they are part of our culture as a nation. I thought I could show you guys ways of wearing or making poppies in a variety of ways to show respect.
( I completely understand if you are traditional and don't want to alter or add to the standards already set, but for some people it may be an interesting way for them to show respect).
Some idea's i've had

- Just the tradition poppy and pin,
- A poppy badge ( i know they sell them )
- Pick up/make some poppy earring's (click here to see)
- Paint your nails with a poppy design on the accent finger
- Make a poppy designed cake
-Wear red clothing
- Poppy headband/hair clips
- Buy a poppy phone case? (click here to see) 

Just a few ideas I thought may come in handy? what are you guys doing this remembrance day..

Wardrobe organization.

hey guys, If you remember in a previous post I shown a jacket which I customized and explained to you all how we were throwing some of our old clothes away and I used this as an excuse to redesign and organize my wardrobe. Now in my bedroom I don't have loads of storage space as it is quite a small room but I make it work. I decided the best way to explain how its organised is going through everything and explaining where it is place.

Clothes: First of all my wardrobe is a three door wardrobe so that a double one and one single on the end all joined together so my clothes are hung up in order of coats, jackets, jumpers, tops, skirts, shorts, dresses trousers.
Shoes: My shoes are placed on the bottom of my double wardrobe and more expensive or fancier ones are on the top shelf.
Evening dresses: these hang in the single wardrobe.
Bags: Bags go in the bottom section of my single wardrobe
underwear, pj's, gym clothes, dance clothes: are all in a chest of draws.
Hats & scarves: these go in the bags above my wardrobe.

How do you guys organize your wardrobe, leave a comment below..

So i've just noticed i've got to 100 followers which may not seem like a lot to most bloggers but i', grateful for everyone of you guys that clicked the follow button on my blog. I know i've recently been absent from blogging but i'm not going to lie to you guys I lost passion for it and that's about it.. I couldn't think of new things to write about and over the summer I was just off enjoying it working, going out and not being stuck behind a computer. But since I started work, I earned money and now I can indulge and buy new products and just enjoy bogging the way I used to. So anyway thank you everybody and now i'm back trying to get myself into a routine i'm thinking of posting every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday? I know i've been posting daily recently but i'm loving it!
Thanks again everybody, i'm so grateful.

Shabby jacket upgrade.

The other day my family and I we're going through all of our wardrobes ( which I took the chance to redesign and organised my wardrobe, eventually) anyway, we was look for a load of old clothes or pieces of fabric to take to a charity shop just because the house was getting out of control with old coats hanging in closets and shoes all over the floors. Shopaholic family eh?
I seen my Dad's old jacket which was literally like 4 years old but hardly worn because he didn't like it on him. It had been hanging up in the closet for ages and I don't know why I never though of this before. It was just lay there on top of a giant black bag just appealing to me so i grabbed it and dashed upstairs to try and transform it into a more feminine feel.

So before it's all shabby and baggy and looks a little like a sack.. now i'm not saying I totally transformed it into a Chanel garment but I really like the edgy slightly hobo feel to it.

So firstly I rolled up the sleeves to give it a more feminine feel and so you'll show some skin when its one, tightened the waist a little and my favorite part is I studded it! Now i didn't want to go all out stud's but just a little detail that draws attention.

I think I like this becuase the whole army/military thing is in style now and its a really edgy/urban trend i think.

My inspiration for this project.

Topshop brazil

As I am sure most of you guys are aware I am completely obsessed over Topshop Nail polishes. I have my own little collection going and don't think it will stop anytime soon. The latest addition to my little family is topshop's Brazil polish. Firstly I think the name is very appropriate with the polish. On to the polish itself, Brazil consists of a clear polish covered in multicolored particles of glitter and little glitter reflects. I feel it is quite a summer polish but I reckon it will work well for the Christmas season what with all the glittery decorations and Christmas party's about, perfect!
I wore it over a plain white nail tip polish, none branded just your typical white in order for me to see the product true to its colour as its not strong enough to cover the nail on its own. I really like this polish its so pretty and I think it could be quite universal, all over the nails, accent nails, glitter nail tips. Just a few ideas there for you but anyway overall I think its a great colour and only cost's £6.00 which I feel is reasonable for 8ml's worth of polish

For some reason it kind of reminds of the white chocolate  jazzels sweets, anyone else agree?

Topshop wishlist A/W 2012

So recently i've been malling over everything that topshop have on their website. I dont shop in topshop as much as I would like too since it isnt in the shopping centre closest to me. Whenever I do shop in topshop I ALWAYS pick up a nail polish ( well I say I, I mean my boyfriend- sort of like he's little thing to treat me.) and anyway I have a few clothing items from there but im becoming obsessed with there accessories and makeup. I think topshop do the best high street shoes by far! and there bag collections are just to die for.
I really like the nude and black look for this fall for some reason I think it looks extremely classy and chic.& I like the idea of taking something that looks quite feminine and adding spiked detailing to it to give it an edge but not make is 'punk rocker' so to speak.

What are your current trend loves or topshop loves like me?
post below..

Lush pop in the bath review

Firstly I should start by saying sorry guys I know I've been off the blogging scene for some while now, but im back! and what better way to get back into it then to do a lush review since everybody loves lush. So the other day me and my boyfriend went to out local shopping center to watch Madagascar 3(for reference its amazinggggg!)
Anyway and we stopped by topshop and lush, which he treated me to a few things and the first one I've tried out is the 'pop in the bath bubble bar'

Lush says: 'crumble the bar under the hot running tap, let the water make huge piles of bubbles-then you think, you wink, you do a double blink, you close your eyes and jump in.'

So i followed all the instructions and it did make HUGE piles of bubbles but they do start to gradually reduce once your in the bath, i used about 1/3 of the bar so have another 2 uses left yet. Pop in the bath is very beautiful to look at, a blue base with a pink flower on top. The bar cost £2.90 which makes it just a little less that £1.00 per bath if you use it three times which I think is perfectly reasonable. It smells amazing but it does not seem last on the skin once your out the bath. It was very easy to crumble under the water but I found it difficult to break off. Overall it is a good ( not great but good) bubble bar although i'm unsure on if i would repurchase it or branch out to try something else.
