Quick nails post..

Ok so my flight hasn't been called yet so I thought I'd show you my nails! They are painted with Ciate 'My Fair lady', a freebit from Marie Claire. The polish is very sheer but buildable and applied very well with no streaking or bald patches (if you know what I mean?! Haha)

It's a pretty colour but I reckon it gets a bit 'lost' on my nails and doesn't have that much of an impact?'s a pretty colour!

Have any of you got this colour? What did you think of it?

Speedy Airport Haul

I'm at Edinburgh airport waiting to board a flight to Birmingham to see my boyfriend..and couldn't resist the gravitational pull of the duty free MAC! So I snapped up a Warm Soul Mineralised Blush and a MAC Make Up Lesson in Smoky Brown! Hastily snapped pics below!

The palette contains Sable, Showstopper and Retrospeck eyeshadows, 2 mini brushes, a mini technakohl liner and a mini Zoom Lash Mascara!! Look at those cute little brushes! Hopefully I can depot these bad boys too! Oh how I love duty free MAC! it almost makes the fear of going on a plane worthwhile!

Better go! Flights been called! :S

Quick Review - elf Studio Conditioning Lip Balm SPF15

Can you believe it?! After what feels like a lifetime I'm blogging again! I kinda became a bit disheartened with blogging/YouTube and took an unscheduled break! But recently I've been catching up on my blogs and watching some YouTube videos and I'm ready to get stuck back in *rolls up sleeves*

I placed an elf order while they had their 50% off code on orders of £30 or more and picked up a few things I've been lusting after!

I picked up the elf Studio Conditioning Lip Balm SPF15 in the shade Nice and Natural, which looks on the website like a lovely nude colour.

*pictures both from

Here is a quick picture I snapped on my iPhone

As you might be able to see the actual colour is slightly more pinky/brown and a touch darker than the swatch on the website.

I was pleasantly surprised with the pigmentation of this balm, which is the perfect semi-opaque my-lips-but-better colour on me. It contains vitamins A and E which, google informs me, are beneficial for healthy skin. It also contains mineral oil, which some sources suggest isn't an effective moisturiser, but I'm willing to overlook that since it's such a pretty colour and texture! I like that it is a flat colour with no shimmer and its very fact it's the only thing I've worn on my lips since I got it!

Get these on the Elf website for a bargainous £3.50!

Have any of you tried these? What are your thoughts? What other colours are you loving?

It's nice to be back :)
