Gorgeous acessories from Je Suis Prettyful.....

These new goodies I have to show you today are handmade and beautifully crafted by the lovely Carmen of 'Je Suis Prettyful', Carmen is a fellow blogger check out her blog HERE there is some fab make up looks that I wish I could do! And it was one of the first blogs I followed when I set up a google account and my own blog last year, and now Carmen is putting her other talents to good use and has set up her own Etsy shop selling amazing everday accessories and bridal ones.

I got this gorgeous embellished headband that will look such a fabulous statement piece when worn with a little black dress and I feel so glam when I have tried it on, it is such a gorgeous olive green colour too that works so well against my hair but I can imagine this looking just as good on lighter hair too, and also available in red and pink.

I also got these cute little red flower style earrings, that are so cute and i've been wearing nearly everyday,

 and finally these 2 amazing handcrafted flower hair pins that come in an array of colours, they are so pretty and have small little pearls in the middle that is such a lovely detail to add, you can see they are also beautifully packaged in a lovely box with a bow so you can store them in this, I actually want to get married like NOW just so I can wear these, they are soooo stunning and this sounds so cheesey but the fact everything has been handmade and had so much work go into them makes them feel all that more special!

And can I just say all 3 of these items are such GOOD quality, they feel so luxurious, I can't say it enough, I know from experience alot of acessories I have fall to bits after a few wears especially high street items but I just know these will last for a long time.

You can check out the full line at www.jesuisprettyful.etsy.com and everything on there is FREE SHIPPING both domestic and internation which is amazing as I know alot of my readers are from overseas and I feel bad when I blog about items you can only get in the UK!

To keep up with updated on the twitter page HERE and finally make sure you go like the facebook page HERE as when it hits 100 likes there will be a giveaway!!

Big thank you to the lovely and talented Carmen!

BlueBerry FOTD! Blue liner/Berry lips

Hi everyoneeeeee thought I would be back with a quick FOTD, I haven't worn much make up alately or nothing exciting so this is the best I have to offer you on recent FOTDs! One thing I am loving is ELF Mineral foundation which surprised me soooooooooo much I will definatley be repurchasing (full review coming soon) and one thing I am HATING is ELF Studio Tinted Moisturizer (went straight in the bin after one go not worth 10p never mind £3.50! It's not good unless you like to look orange, patchy and a general mess LOL) 

Anyways todays FOTD is a coloured lined eye with berry lips, I love the colder months to rock berry lips. I thought as an alternative to my usual black liner I would do a navy, it's stil dark so defines well but a softer alternative the navy colour I used was from Sleek's Monaco Palette, you can see my review of that HERE the shade was 'Midnight Garden' then instead of using the same colour on my lower lashline and waterline or not using one I though I would team a lighter colour so from the same palette used 'Humming Bird' which is a shimmery turquoise colour, I used a angled liner brush to apply these and just wet it slightly and it as they are so pigmented it worked out fairly well, also to start with I used a eye primer and a neutral colour from the MUA Heaven and Earth palette

The other products I used aswell that I haven't mentioned were -
  •  L'oreal Telescopic mascara
  • NYC Chroma Face Glow in 'Sunstone' (I LOVE this so sad it's been discontinued, my mum has the other shade 'Moonstone' and that too is amazing, read the reviews on makeupalley HERE I think it's still around on some online sites like amazon or Ebay and I highly recommend!)
  • ELF Blush in 'Flushed'
  • Rimmel Professional Eyebrow pencil
  • ELF Eyelid Primer
  • 2True Colour Drench Lipstick 'shade 5'
  • NYX Long lipliner in 'Pinky'

Discounted Chanel Rouge Coco Mademoiselle 05 Lipstick limited offer from BuyaPowa!

BuyaPowa firstly is basically a site with the concept of getting us customers bulk-buy discounts on items we want and love and which have previously only been available to retailers.

BuyaPowa has specfic items as whats called a 'co-buy' and each co-buy lasts for a limited time and will have a limited number of units (usually 100) - when it's sold out, it's sold out. And, most importantly, as more and more people join the co-buy, the price gets lower and lower. But, when the co-buy closes, everyone who has joined will pay the final price. So it doesn't matter whether you're the first in there or the last in line - everyone gets to pay the lowest price achieved.

Every co-buy has three price-drops - which work in this way:
  • 1 person - 24 people: our opening price - below RRP and roughly comparable with Amazon prices
  • 25 people - 49 people: first price drop
  • 50 people - 74 people: second price drop
  • 75 people - 100 people: third and final price drop - best price achieved 
Its great to spread the word as the more friends/people you get in on the deals the cheaper the products we want to buy end up being for us! Still unclear? Read their FAQs HERE which answer most of your questions
BuyaPowa was doing the magnetic nail polish from Nails Inc last week which is a new product and went for £7 which is nearly half off the original RRP and the amazing YSL touche eclat went for an amazing £13 the other day....the current Co-buy is the much loved and infamous Chanel Rouge Coco Mademoiselle 05 Lipstick ....It is starting at cheaper than the RRP anyway - £19.99 instead of £23 and thats if less than 25 people buy it which im sure more people will be interested than that for such a bargain,  then it drops in price with -
25-49 people: £18.99
50-74 people: £17.99
Best price: £16.99
P&P: £2.00

 What a classic and stunning lipstick get yours HERE NOW it's going to be a fast seller!!

YSL Arty ring DUPE!!! For less than £2

Who doesn't love a good dupe! I know normally dupes are for make up but today I have for you the dupe YSL 'Arty Ring' the ring im sure you have all seen that retails for £140, now it's nice but from my point of view I don't wear jewellery often enough to spend £140 on a dress ring (especialIy a gold plated one at that #JustSaying) This is the 'real' one -

Then onto my dupe one....I got this baby for $2.99 which is about £1.92 including free worldwide delivery! It is from Hong Kong so does take a while but that's so worth it in my opinion!

 Sorry the pics have abit of a pink tinge I had to use artifical light the ebay seller has some clear pics, it is also available in different colour stones this is Turquoise even though it looks a green shade thanks to that stupid lighting! I thought it would be flimsy and feel cheap but it feels quite heavy and as good quality as most other high street dress jewellery but even on the high street you wouldn't get a price like this! The fitting is quite small though so bear that in mind.

HERE is the seller and if you look at all their items they are sooooo nice and all so cheap i'll be buying more, I think they only have this ring with the turquoise like mine and the black stone in stock at the moment but they did used to have red and a few other colours but im sure they will get some more in and in no way am I affiliated with them (I paid my £1.92 thank you very much ha ha) I just thought I would share a bargain with my lovelies!

Not many make up looks though as my 'sick face' is totally au naturel although if I am going to the doctor I do the decent thing and shove on abit of concealer and blush.....as no1 deserves to see my totally naked face haha.
