October empties!

Hey loves!
I hope you've had a great day :-)
I didn't use up a lot of products last month but I did finish a couple! Here they are:


Johnson's gentle eye make-up remover pads
I was actually really impressed with these. I didn't get on with them at first as I felt the pads were a little dry but actually I kept reaching for them and they did a pretty good job of removing my eye make-up!
Soap and Glory Supercat carbon black eyeliner pen
I've spoken about my love for this product before and it shows no sign of stopping. It's honestly just the easiest liquid eyeliner to use. It's a felt tip pen and it's a breeze to apply, I could literally do a winged eyeliner in 30 secs with this. I will be repurchasing!
Superdrug double faced cotton pads
No surprises that I've finished using these as I use them for pretty much everything, from applying my toner to removing my nail varnish. A make-up bag staple!


Charles Worthington expert volume spray
I've used this product for many years and I absolutely swear by it to give me really voluminous roots. I just spritz a little on my towel dried hair it makes it look massive! I would definitely repurchase.
Dove Intensive Repair regenerating mask
I love Dove's Express Treatment Conditioners already but I've found these too which I really like. I use an intensive conditioning mask pretty much every time I wash my hair and this is just great at making my locks feel soft and healthy.

Hands and body:

Wilko sweet vanilla & honey shower smoothie
I wasn't that impressed with this body scrub if I'm honest as the grains didn't scrub my skin well enough. The smell was nice, but I prefer the Treacle Moon ones which are dead cheap AND work really well.
Carex aloe vera hand gel
I pop this in my handbag for those public loo moments / nights out and I just really love the scent, it's so refreshing.


Boots essentials nail polish remover
This does what it says on the tin, but it does so pretty well and for a decent price.


IKEA vanilla candle
I'm just obsessed with candles at the moment and these IKEA ones are great for the price!

What did you use up this month?

Let me know!

Weekend OOTN, FOTN and NOTN: How I styled my leather skater skirt

Hey loves!

I hope you had a great weekend and a not too shabby Monday :-)

At the weekend, I went out to a bar in Chelsea with a few friends and I wore a leather skater skirt similar to the stars below.
Kim Kardashian. Demi Lovato, Ashley Tisdale and Lucy Hale in leather skater skirts

The celebrities above have all styled their leather skater skirts differently, with Kim opting for a smart black blouse, Demi choosing a studded bracket, Ashley wearing a striped jumper and Lucy wearing a floral top.

Here's how I styled mine...

Black shoe boots - (see blog post)
Burgundy clutch - Dorothy Perkins (see blog post)

I added a little - with little being the operative word lol - colour with a burgundy clutch and plum lips. What can I say, it's nearly winter and I'm not really a 'colour' person at this time of year haha.

Aldi Lacura Shimmering Day Cream as primer, YSL Touche Eclat #1 under eyes, Benefit Boi-ing #2 on blemishes, Benefit Some Kind-a Gorgeous Foundation Faker #2, Benefit Dallas bronzer, Benefit Coralista blush, Benefit High Beam highlight.

MAC Painterly Paint Pot to prime, Urban Decay NAKED Palette - Buck and Smog shades [applied with Cosmopolitan Eye Blending Brush], Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid eyeliner (black), Avon Color Trend Kajal Stick on waterline, 2 coats of Benefit They're Real Mascara.


Carmex lipbalm to prime, Topshop Lipstick in Inhibition.

I wore my new plum lipstick from Topshop, which I was really impressed with. I did find it clung to dry bits on my lips though so a good lip balm beforehand is a MUST! Recently, I blogged about Topshop's lipstick in Beguiled which I would recommend to you if you're looking for a more berry toned lipstick.

OPI - Lincoln Park After Dark

I had this shade painted on my nails when I got them done recently at MW Nails in Spitalfields and I've just been obsessed with it since. It's a gorgeous, dark burgundy that looks very vampy and gothic on the nails. I love it!

How would you style a leather skater skirt?
