Happy Halloween y’all ūüėÄ

Anyone else pretty much oblivious to how the heck that came around so fast? To think it’s November tomorrow (almost) makes me want to crawl under the bed for fear of waking up to shop shelves filled with Frozen paraphernalia whilst blasting out cheesy 80’s festive tunes *arrrgh* HOWEVER, without dwelling too much on future events lets focus on today shall we ūüėČ Which brings me to my next point chums… it’s the LAST chance to enter my Kat Von D ¬†INTERNATIONAL giveaway, where one lucky entrant will win themselves a gorgeous eye shadow palette of their choice. Sounds nifty, huh? Then if you haven’t done so already be sure to get your name down – if you’re not in you can’t win! Competition closes midnight tonight GMT.

Sitting comfy? Then feast your eyes on what you could win and how to enter! Goodluck…

The Nail File: Gel Polish Vertical Ombre with Mermaid Dust…

Howdy nail addicts & beauty buddies…

If like me, you spend far too much time deliberating over a¬†trio of gorgeous colours, why settle for one when you can have all 3? Yep, my thoughts exactly chums ūüėÄ as this week I talk through one of my favourite nail looks for virtually any season – a gorgeous vertical ombre *happy sigh* However, not only have I combined three of my most coveted colours; being the sparkle-obsessed magpie that I am, I just couldn’t resist a sprinkling of mermaid dust to give the finished look a gorgeous subtle shimmer.

Note for¬†fellow Nail Techs: If you haven’t already invested in mermaid dust then I insist you treat yourself on your next nail art spree. This stuff is SUPER popular, gorgeous over virtually any shade of gel polish and perfect for any season. Whatsmore, it’s the perfect compromise for those clients that like a hint of shimmer without going full bling. Voila!

.

Anyways, time to grab your cuppa and nestle¬†back into your comfiest chair for a few minutes as I chatter through how to create this easy peasy nail art look that is a must-have option for those who either can’t decide on a delicious range of shades or those who simply love to glam up their nails with an eye-catching paint job ūüėČ

Are you a fan of the ombre look? What trio of colours would you opt for? Whatever your thoughts I‚Äôd love to know, don‚Äôt forget to say a quick howdy in the comments belowūüôā

Keeping Up With Karen…

Keeping Up With Karen

What a week…

Between a potent concoction of hospital appointments, blood tests, running errands, organising Emma’s Halloween costume, school appointments etc. These days I’m sure I¬†moan 70% more than I ever did before… not getting time squeezed in for filming, trying to lift my head of the pillow some days, whilst other days I’m ever so thankful that I’ve managed to get up and dressed. Sounds crazy right? Especially at the age of 34. But this last month seems to be this very scenario on repeat play – kind of like groundhog day but in a week-to-week format. If anything, this past month has taught me to be grateful for¬†schedules AND the ability to stick to them… something I was always good at but not so much lately. Is that an excuse to buy myself an Erin Condren planner? Nah, didn’t think so gals, but maybe a Christmas treat to roll in 2017 – I guess I should start leaving hints for Santa sometime soon ūüėČ

But as always, I love to get a little Sunday chatter in with you lot… and if you’re scrolling through the interwebs on the search for a few fun snippets whilst you sip your ‘Sunday mug of yumminess’ then why not check out a few of the links below? If you’re a blogger too, you’re welcome to leave a link to any blog posts you’d like me to check out – which reminds me Emma from Country Girl Em, I’m still to catch up with your previous weekly round-up so I’ll be sure to pop by today for a chatter ūüėÄ Why not check out her blog for yourself too, it’s certainly a favourite of mine!

DIY Spooky Halloween Bat Display…

halloween-bat-display

As Halloween swiftly approaches, I always get an overwhelming desire to roll up my sleeves, break out the acrylic paints, paper glue and dive right into making cute little Halloween crafts. Of course having an 11 year old daughter only adds to the excuse to run riot, and as per usual Emma’s roped into peppering our little abode with all sorts of spooky artistry.

This year I thought I’d attempt a really cute bat display I spotted in Tesco Food & Living Magazine. Although the original creation is displayed with the twigs pushed into a Pumpkin, Em’s and I thought we’d save ours the pain of piercing him with garden sticks and opted a glass flower vase instead finished off with black ribbon.

I must admit, this is probably one of the easiest and most effective Halloween crafts I‚Äôve¬†created (even the most novice of crafter can‚Äôt go far wrong), it doesn‚Äôt make too much mess (though a table covering is highly recommended) and is relatively quick so you‚Äôre not left grumbling a few hours later ‚Äď great¬†for eager kiddies who prefer to see their efforts come to life rather pronto!

So here’s what you’ll need:

HWC1

Firstly, get yourself out to the garden or local woodland and find some decent size twigs. Thankfully our garden is edged with rather bulky bushes so uncovering our twigs wasn’t too much of a task, however, you’ll also need to rustle up:

Some paint (acrylic works really well)

A decent child’s sized paint brush

Some black card

Twine or thread

A pencil and pair of scissors…

Something to display the twigs in when done: vase/pumpkin/large jar/ empty bottle etc.

.

Here’s how to do it:

After rummaging around the garden to find your chosen sticks, clear them of all dirt and debri. I’d suggest you also give them a clean under warm water to remove any hidden nasties that could be lurking. If necessary leave them to dry.

Garden

(We found ours right beside Peppa the cat)

Once dry it‚Äôs time to roll up your sleeves and get painting! Em‚Äôs and I chose a gorgeous coppery acrylic paint for a touch of autumnal shimmer. However blacks, browns and even purple will look equally as impressive. Just make sure you get all the nooks and crannies covered, then leave the paint to dry ‚Äď this really shouldn‚Äôt take too long if using acrylic, ours were touchable in 30 minutes!

Copper Acrylic Paint

Next take your black card and draw a template of a bat with your pencil. Cut this out and use it to draw another 4-6 bats… or as many as you darn well like! Carefully cut out your little colony of bats and trim to neaten. You’ll also need to rub out any obvious pencil lines.

Bat Outline Bats Cut Out

Next make a hole in the head of your bat *ouch* and carefully tie your thread through. I used a hole punch as my card was rather thick. Now make a loop on the other end of the thread to dangle your bats from the twigs.

HWC5 HWC6

Display your twigs in a vase (or pumpkin) and enjoy your crafty art work… voila!

HWC10 HWC8

.

Top Tips…

  • Sprinkle your twigs with glitter for an extra twinkly effect‚Ķ black glitter looks fantastic over black acrylic paint!
  • Once done¬†keep them for¬†Christmas. You can always swap your bats for mini baubles!
  • If you‚Äôre limited for space why not make a miniature version to display on your desk? Your bats could look super cute¬†in a jam jar with some spooky themed ribbon tied around it!

The Makeup Menu: Inside The No 7 Gift Box…

no-7-gift-box

Oooh erm, hello Tuesday…. it’s been a while since I slipped from my normal routine, however with what feels like half the house turned upside down from re-decorating at the moment, it’s no surprise that I’m thrown into domestic chaos – and so is the blogging routine until the paint brushes are fully packed away again *sigh*.

HOWEVER, enough waffle as I grab my cuppa and tell you guys all about the fabulous little No 7 gift box I received in-store as part of a promotion when treating myself to a few beauty goodies. It’s been sitting patiently on my beauty table for a number of weeks now, eagerly waiting to be opened. Time to take a peek inside…

AIRBRUSH AWAY PRIMER

dsc03576

“No7 Airbrush Away Primer for days when you want your skin to look flawless and your makeup to apply perfectly.

Pores and fine lines appear to disappear and wrinkles are put into soft focus leaving your skin perfectly smooth and even all day.

Contains hyaluronic acid moisture locking spheres to help soften the appearance of fine lines and smooth the skin.”

Personally, I’m a huuuge¬†fan of the No 7 primers and this is no exception. With its silky texture that doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily, Airbrush Away helps to smooth out imperfections allowing your foundation to appear slightly more airbrushed and flawless. It glides on like a dream and makes a considerable difference to keeping your makeup looking fresher for longer. Say goodbye to parting with unnecessary¬†wads of cash for a decent primer, as for ¬£16.50 this is definitely an affordable investment – and a little goes a loooong way ladies! It’s definitely worth the spend!

.

STAY PERFECT EYESHADOW in MATTE MOCHA

dsc03577

“No7 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow delivers high impact colour. Blends effortlessly and lasts for hours.
 
For even longer lasting results, use over No7 Stay perfect Eye Base and apply with the No7 eyeshadow brush.”

As many of you already know, I’m a bit of a magpie when it comes to eyeshadow – the more shimmer the better. If truth be told… if you take a peek into any of my palettes you’ll notice that the matte selections are barely touched, so needless to say I was a little sceptical when it came to imagining me falling head over heels for this particular formula. Okay, so it hasn’t got the glam of my beloved shimmer however this is a gorgeous shadow that truly deserves the praise. It may not be over dazzling in appearance but this beautiful warm grey is a gorgeous colour that works incredibly well with so many other tones (I’ve found it especially fabulous with plum tones!!) Just as I’d expected from No 7, it outlasted my expectations. I applied this at 10am and by 6:30pm it was still looking fresh and well. At ¬£7 it’s not the most pocket-friendly of drug store options however its endurance makes the spend completely justified. Available in 22 individual shades or you can buy the trio’s – one thing I will say is that this particular shade (mocha) is a fantastic staple for anyone!

.

DRAMATIC LIFT MASCARA

dsc03579

“Inspired by haircare, No7 Dramatic Lift Mascara contains flexible polymers and Keratin to help boost lash from root to tip.

The curved brush helps to capture all lashes and push them upwards, No7 Dramatic Lift Mascara is proven to lift lashes by 70%.

Wand Style- A curved styling brush that fits perfectly in to the roots of the lashes to help lift each individual lash to create the ultimate wide awake look.

Finished Look- Lashes are lifted by 70% and are boosted from root to tip.”

Okay, this is where I tend to grumble a little. No doubt about it, at ¬£13.50 it’s not the most expensive of mascara’s by a long shot however why-oh-why do I never see a dramatic difference in my lashes compared to some of the cheaper drugstore brands? In fact, one of my biggest disappointments in mascara has got to be from MAC – which certainly wasn’t priced for what it was worth. Yes, the No 7 Dramatic Lift is a nice mascara but unfortunately I didn’t see anything extraordinary about my lashes after application. One thing I did notice is that the mascara didn’t tend to flake like many of the cheaper alternatives too. On the whole, not enough drama for me however so I’ll still be sticking to my classic Max Factor False Lash Effect. Sorry No 7 *sob*

.

SHEER TEMPTATION LIPSTICK

dsc03581

“Colour glides easily over the lips, creating a shiny lipgloss effect without any stickiness.. Now we’ve added some gorgeous new bang-on-trend colours to the range, perfect for a subtle daytime look or more dramatic evening lips.

Enriched with natural waxes and Theobroma oil (which you’ll find in chocolate!) to care for your lips, and Maxilip to help hydrate the lips.”

Tucked inside the little box of goodies was a lipstick voucher for a Sheer Temptation Lipstick. I opted for the shade Caramel Kiss… which seems to be a bright pink on the website – yet nothing of the sort in reality! So as you can imagine by the name of the formula this is certainly not a heavy matte concoction, but instead, a beautiful lightweight lippy that feels incredibly nourishing and kind to your lips. There was no bizarre taste, no nasty stickiness – just a smooth & silky coating of lip colour that felt intensely hydrating to wear. Of course being a sheer lippy it doesn’t have overly lengthy staying power, though I managed to get about 2.5 hours out of it – which in my humble opinion isn’t anything to grumble about for something that feels so nourishing to wear. Okay, so you may have to reapply, but honestly gals, once you feel how soft this is on your lips you won’t have any hesitation to pampering your pout a second time round!

.

Final Thoughts…

dsc03571

No 7 ¬†continuously seem to impress me the more I dip into their product range. I started a number of months ago with their Beautifully Matte foundation and since then I’ve been hooked. Considering this was a freebie gift set that has a great range of goodies to suit everyone, I’d certainly recommend any makeup maven yet to try No 7 to pop into your local Boots store and give them a go. The staff have always been so incredibly helpful, so if you’re not sure what you’re looking for don’t worry as they’ll certainly keep you right without seeming pushy!

no7-collage-review

I love the final look and this is definitely a great range of staples I’ll enjoy using as part of my daily routine. Thanks No 7 – you’ve converted me once again to even more of your fantastic range!

Gooood Morning My little Lucky Charms…

And¬†that is INDEED what I’m tucking into this very minute! Do any of you remember the little cereal treat? For me it was almost a dietary staple¬†of growing up in the 90’s. Cereal was never really my thing, however once I had a bowl of these tasty little treasures I was well & truly hooked. Of course I’m 33 now & there’s very little excuse for my eagerness to consume a bowl (or two) yet¬†I still manage to enjoy it… Sunday morning, cartoons, bowl of Lucky Charms. What a way to start the day ūüėČ

However I’m sure you’re not here to¬†read¬†me waffling on about nostalgic brekkie cereal, right?
