Wishlist Wednesday (14/11/12)

Okay so I'm aware today is actually Friday! But Wishlist Friday hardly rolls off the tongue. I meant to post this two days ago but I got sidetracked! Regardless here it is, the things I'm craving this week.

This has got to be one of the most amazing necklaces I've seen in a while. It's incredibly cute and such a unique idea, I love HOYFC because they always make such lovely jewellery. Sadly I am yet to own any as it's a little higher then I like to spend on jewellery. Although I would love to purchase this when I have some spare cash!

I am a big fan on the Sleek Pout Paints as I suffer from lipstick paranoia. If I have lipstick on I spend my entire day checking my lips and licking and fiddling with them that I just end up ruining what I've put on. So when I first discovered OCC I was amazed with the product but at the time they weren't for sale in the UK. When Sleek released their Pout Paints I decided to invest in them instead, I love the freedom, But this colour from OCC is so wonderful, I would love to have it readily available everyday without having to mix the right shade myself! 

I just quite like the look of this, I really love Tony Moly products and I've never really owned any kind of powder but from the reviews I've seen this ones really nice! :D 

Every once in a while you'll find something you desperately want and your brain just gives you reasons why the high price is ok and it will never let you make excuses. This would be it. They're more than double what I've spent on shoes before. I know there are a few replica's / copies but I almost feel I would rather just save up and fork out for a real pair then an imitation. I just know the quality will be far superior. What irk's me is the International price is nearly £40 more at a sale price, which makes me wonder if I should just wait until I go to Japan to get myself a pair! All I have to say is, dear life, please give me money for my feet are so sad without these shoes.

Movember Necklaces for Sale!


So I'm a little late posting this but better late then never! 

This year I really wanted to find a way to raise money for Movember but as I can't grow a moustache I decided to do it in a way I know best! Craftily!

I wanted to share with you why I choose to support Movember this year
This is personal and hard to talk about so I will keep it brief

 When I was 18 my dad died of secondary cancer. He was my hero and I was always his little princess. It was such a challenging time for me but knowing that I had 18 years with a dad who really loved and cared for me made it easier to cope with. I think it's so important to get involved in anything that can help improve care, treatment and the survival rate of serious illnesses.

For every necklace sold I will deposit 50% into my Movember Fund

My page is here:
If you'd rather just donate then make a purchase then that would be amazing

Remember to wear your necklace with pride and not just in November!

Each one of these necklaces is unique and one of a kind

These are Limited Edition and there are only 9 available.
8 come with AB rhinestones which look lovely in artificial light and spectacular in sunlight
The light purple one comes with sweet lavender pearly cabs
You can purchase the necklaces here! At £6.50 they're a steal and £3.25 off the profit will go straight to charity! When your necklace is shipped I will let you know and send you confirmation of the donation!

I ask you to please like and share this with your friends and family!
This is for such a good cause and every little helps (I didn't steal that from Tesco!)

Treasure Tuesday: Stocking Fillers

I'm a believer that it's never too early to prepare for Christmas I did some major christmas shopping yesterday, I managed to get some big presents and a bunch of wonderful stocking fillers.  Here are some ideas for affordable yet lovely / fun stocking fillers! 

Everything Pictured is Under £5 (Excluding postage)
I've tried to choose as many items as I can which can be bought in store where possible to save on postage costs!

#1 This is always a favourite for me, I sometimes get these for people for no reason other then because I can. Lego Mini Figure Mystery Packs. These are little lego figures that come in sealed opaque packets and inside every packet is a mystery figure. Every few months they bring out a new series. You can either grab them and hope for the best or do as Jade, Mali and I do and stand in the shop fondling the packages (This step is optional, but fun)

£1.99 Each (WH Smith, Supermarkets, Online)

2# Punky Pins has a nice selection of stud earrings for £5, although you can get cheaper studs elsewhere these earrings are unique and perfect for people who like a little flare in their jewellery boxes

£5.00 (Online Only)

3# I love getting these at christmas because you can mix and match flavours and they're always wonderful for dieters, I love to get people chocolate but not everyone wants a big block when they're watching their weight, these are guaranteed stocking fillers for my family every year! 

£1.89 each or 3 for £5 (Online and in store)

Yankee Candle Tarts
4# I've known about these for a while but only very recently purchased any. I only recommend these for people who already have tart burners (Although you can pick up brand new burners in charity shops if you keep an eye out) How they work is you place an unpackaged tart into the dish at the top and an unscented tea light in the candle pot below. As it heats up the tart will melt and give off a lovely smell. Each tart lasts around 8 hours and the smell lingers long after the candle below is extinguished

£1.25 (House of Fraser, Clintons and Online)

#5 If you know someone who has a bathtub and loves it to death these are always a good buy, they vary in price, usually around £2-4 each, If you go into lush the staff are always helpful and can find the perfect bomb to suit everyone, they will also show you how the bomb works and what it looks like which is again, fun!
£Varies (Online and in store)

And the rest:

£2.00 (Online and in store) 

£4.00 (Online)

River Island Pearl Cat Ear Headband
£4.00 (Online and in store)

River Island Badges 4 Pack
£3.00 (Online and in store)

£4.99 (Online)

The last thing I will say is always check charity shops, you can often find new / lightly used items such as books and dvd's, I always grab a few bargains for my immediate family / other half because I know they don't mind where items come from. I would suggest caution when choosing where to get certain items from as there are people who will disapprove of dvd's not in shrink wrap or books without perfect spines!

Micro Movie Reviews: James Bond 007: Skyfall


I am a massive movie watcher / cinema goer, and I would like to work that into my blog, so I've decided a new feature on my blog will be Micro Movie Reviews.
There are hundreds of reviews online so rather then giving you a lengthy detailed report, I will give you a short and (generally) spoiler free summary of a film, in a few lines!
(The content will be my opinion and honest feeling about the film featured)

(May contain minor spoilers)

I find there is a definite line between people who love and people who hate James Bond. The films are a bit like movie Marmite.  Personally I'm a huge fan of the sauve, super spy and his ridiculous gadgets. I also tend to avoid the hype so I don't have the chance to be disappointed about the film when I see it.

My Thoughts
Bond, James Bond still hasn't mastered the art of "keeping it in his pants"
Although I suppose that is either part of the charm or an early idea they couldn't shake off.
Less gadgets, more sophistication, a load of city hopping and delicious new Q will be a portion of your viewing pleasure, and the rest is too good to tell!


The only fault with the film was that it had to end!

Here's a plug! I studied Photography along side this beauty, not only is she a very talented photographer but she has a killer set of pipes. I felt this was in keeping with the bond theme and I say it's worth a listen, it's a nice cover, with some variation on the original and her voice brings a new dimension to the song, a more haunting feel!
