Obsessed with: Biker Jackets

My friend Lucy really wanted me to try and find her a nice biker jacket so I thought I'd do a post about them. Biker jackets are the perfect cover-up to add a rock-chic feel to your festival outfits and make you stand out from the crowd.

Here's some of my favourites:

Ok, so my friend Caitriona wanted to know where to get some good, print leggings so I thought I'd do a little post compiling my favourite print leggings from my favourite shops and websites!

My Ever-Growing Nail Varnish Collection



I used to never bother with nail varnish because I was absolutely useless at putting it on. It would go everywhere so I'd end up taking it straight back off again. But now, I reckon I'm getting better at applying my nail varnish so I've got into a weekly habit of putting on nail varnish during the weekends (I don't see the point why we're not allowed to wear nail varnish to school, it's not going to affect our education is it?!).

Here's my Models Own Collection. I adore Models Own and I love everything about them: the packaging, the colours and the quality. They all go on extremely well and definitely worth a fiver each! Also, I really want to visit their bottle shop in Westfield London because it looks so cool!

Here's my collection of trusty crackle nail varnishes. I love the effects of them, but I really can't do them. I find the polish doesn't go on very easily so I have to use huge amounts on each nail and it ruins the colour underneath. Also when I'm impatient and don't let the colour underneath dry properly, it pulls the undercoat apart which is really annoying. So because of these reasons, I haven't used these in a while.. But I'd love to try Barry M's new nail effects like the foil, croc and magnetic varnishes.

All of these nail varnishes were free gifts. I got the two Barry M nail varnishes free when I subscribed to Sugar Magazine (oh how I miss Sugar Magazine!), and I got the two Max Factor nail varnishes as a free gift in Boots for spending over £15. They are such nice autumnal colours! 
The Max Factor nail varnishes, although they're tiny, are really good, even though it's a bit of a task painting with the teeny brush. The colours  are so nice and bright, definitely one of my favourites!


I got the Maybelline nail varnish on a random market stall on a brief visit to Southampton a few years ago. It's a lovely colour and goes on very nicely. I think I only paid about 50p for it so it was definitely a bargain!
I got the Ciaté nail varnish free in Marie Claire about a year ago. I've only used it to paint my mum's nails and I hated the long thin brush. It could just be me but I found it really difficult to use, even though the colour is really nice.
Lastly, my mum bought this Rimmel London nail varnish because she really wanted some yellow nail varnish. It's so bad! I attempted to paint my nails with it and after 6 coats, it still wasn't a proper solid colour! Me and my mum were so disappointed with it!

So there you go, a little look at my small but growing nail varnish collection!

An Insight Into My Makeup



I thought I'd do a different type of post today and give you a little insight into my makeup bag, but I'll warn you now, it's a bit rubbish. I'm not really gifted in the art of make-up so I don't really spend much money on it..

Here's my three good foundations. I do have a few other ones but they're really bad Miss Sporty ones that I bought for about £2 each in year 7 when I wanted to try and be a cool kid... that clearly didn't work out quite as well as I wanted because I'm probably the least cool person you'll ever meet, oh well!

After seeing all the adverts for this, I thought I'd see what all the fuss was about and get it. At first it seemed really good, except making me look a little bit orange. But soon, it started drying out my skin and it's taken me a few months to get my skin to an alright condition again... But I used it last weekend and it caused me a huge breakout of spots, not cool. There's one place for this BB cream, and it's the bin.

I bought this after my mum went into Boots and got a makeover and she brought a little tester pot home which I was really impressed with. Turns out it wasn't actually this foundation so I spent £15 on this for nothing, and in my world, that is a lot! Despite that, it gives a good coverage even though it shows up the dry patches on my cheeks and between my eyebrows. It does make me look a bit orange though, even though this is a light shade..

Finally, my favourite out of the lot. This is my most recent buy and I really like it! I love the consistency of it and it feels like a quality product! It blends really well into my skin, and looks better on now that my cheeks aren't as dry as before. I would use this every single day if I had the time in the mornings, but I don't because I really don't wake up early enough.. But I like my sleep so it's all good ;)

So there's an insight into my shocking lack of makeup, any product advice or recommendations would be much appreciated!
