On my most recent trip to Superdrug with a few friends (one being a fellow blogger whose link I have posted at the bottom of the page), I wasn't actually looking to buy anything…that idea failed. So I will let you know what I bought and if the products were a good or bad purchase.

SO EXCITED to have received a Cute Blog Award from a fellow blogger at http://backfortea.blogspot.com/.
I love reading Becca’s blogs about her latest Lush cosmetics purchases and hope to continue reading them in the future. Definitely one to watch!
Here are the rules of the award:
*Link back to the person who awarded you*
*Answer the award questions*
*Share something about yourself you have never shared on your blog before*
*Award as many other blogs you think are worthy of this award*
What is your go to make up product?
Such a tough question! I am always chopping and changing the brands I use and the looks I am trying to create, but something which I could not live without is foundation.
Favourite fashion trends of 2012?
I am a HUGE fan of the Aztec trend. I know this is more 2011 but it is still a FAVE!
This may sound a tad silly, but I struggle to know what my favourite colour is. I always feel it depends on what it is that I am buying in that colour, like a top may look better in a particular colour than for example a handbag! Definitely over- think things too much!
What was the last song you listened too?
Boyce Avenue- Every Breath.
Cats or dogs?
I LOVE animals, especially my dog (Man) so I have to say dogs.
Now for something I have never shared on my blog before...
There are quite a few things I haven’t shared yet as my blog is fairly new so I guess I will just tell you all where I work! I work at La Senza.
As part of the rules I have to award Blogs that I feel are worthy and deserve some recognition for their work and here they are:

Moving on, starting from the top third of your head, take about 5cm strands and begin to back-comb using the paddle brush. Continue to do this on the top layers of your hair (Don’t be afraid to really go for it). As you can see from the picture, when you start to look silly you are half way there.

From my first blog post about my zebra print duvet set, and my animal print nails in another post, I’m sure you all know by now that I have a bit of an obsession with animal print. I never realised just how much until now. Take a look…
My dog couldn't resist being part of the picture, he blends in well.
My most recent purchase was my leopard print boots from New Look. I am in LOVE with them, even if they are ridiculously painful.
What are some of your best animal print buys?

Today I decided to go on the hunt for a new (and affordable) foundation. I have very oily skin which can make me appear shiny. I cannot put in to words how much I hate this, but for those of you who suffer with the same thing, I’m sure you know the feeling.
As I was wandering around boots I stumbled upon the 17 collection which I never usually purchase makeup from. To my delight I found Miracle Matte foundation which has all-day shine control and is oil free. Usually when I hear the word matte, I picture very cakey foundation which makes the skin look dry and dull, but after trying this product out it is brilliant! It is easy to apply (I use my fingers) and gives a full- even coverage. I have been wearing the product since I got home (shade Honey); I have been out in the pouring rain and in my house with the heating on. I have minimal shine and the product feels fresh and light weight on my skin. Now, I don’t know about you, but I like my foundation to smell good, well, this product doesn’t really smell at all…. Well I guess it’s better than smelling bad, nothing worse than a foundation that smells of plasticine!
If you have oily skin I would recommend this product.
During my shop I was also looking for a lipstick, I wanted something purple or violet as the colours go great with pink rosy cheeks. Anyway, I bought two. Firstly I picked up the Barry M lip paint (Shade 129-147). Everything about the product is disappointing except the colour. Every time I apply the lipstick, the pressure against my lips pushes it back into the tube, so I have to keep twisting it back up. In this minus degree weather, the product which sells itself on the moisture feature is in fact too moist, the stick is very flimsy and I am expecting it to simply break off very soon.
I would not recommend this product.
Next I picked up a Models Own lipstick as the colour jumped out at me as I walked past. Had to have it! The colour (Plum) is beautiful. The colour is intense and has a shimmer of pink in the light to add a bit of sparkle. Admittedly the plastic tube does remind me of fake lipsticks I had when I was little and playing dress-up, but hey, it’s a good product.
I would recommend this product.
Hope this help’s on your next shopping trip!
Models Own lipstick– £6 pound boots
Barry M lip paint- £4.49
17 Miracle Matte Foundation- £5.99 (Boots promotion £4.99)

I am a huge fan of House of Holland and Pretty Polly tights; however, with my nails I find it almost impossible to ever get a second wear out of them. I would almost always tear a hole in them or ladder them which was so frustrating. My favourites were the suspender style tights, but at £10-£12 a pair it began to get expensive. As I was passing through Primark a few months ago, I spotted a range of fashion tights which were almost identical. At an average of £3 a pair, these are now the only tights I buy when trying to glam up an outfit. They have so many designs, but unfortunately they often run low on stock so I recommend buying in bulk.
Take a look at my purchases:
The pair below was my favourite, but unfortunately I have not seen them in Primark again since I first purchased them a few months ago. I always make sure I have a look for them when I’m in there!

I am a HUGE fan of holiday jewellery, mostly because it is individual and nothing like what you get here in England. Over the past two years I have been on holidays to Turkey, during which I purchased some of my favourite rings from the markets and small stores within Bodrum. These are not only my favourite pieces of jewellery, but are also the cheapest as I spent no more than £5 per ring. Hope you like them!
I bought these rings on two separate holidays to Turkey. I was so happy when I found the same ring in a different colour. The marble effect is just beautiful.
The simplicity of the simple green ring sold it to me as the colour in particular looked great with a tan! The two (fake) gold designs are so unique, like no jewellery I have ever seen before, the twists and shapes are so intricate and the colours really work well. I always get compliments when wearing this set.
The jewellery is not very durable, however, for that price it doesn't need to be!
