The Weird and the Wonderful Part Two

Hello - me again!

Another hidden treasure has been in found, these time in the form of this bizarre but super cute little gadget from Japan:
By wearing this for 10-15 minutes every day, you can apparently straighten the bridge of your nose! Who needs costly cosmetic surgery when you can buy this little guy for around £3!
What do you think of this product?

I have my first blog follower! Hooray and thank you :)

In other news, I am totally wanting these:

 'Mirror Mirror Boots from Irregular Choice

You can nab these from the IC site for 120 of your fine English pounds - arent they adorable?

I love Irregular Choice and their Autumn/Winter collection is no exception!

I will be posting some of my IC shoes over the coming weeks, so stay posted!

What is the best thing you have done today?

The Weird and the Wonderful


Every so often I come across a product that makes me go 'WTF!' and this is one example:
Introducing Dodora Nipple Pigment Skin Lightening Moisturiser!

I can see a need for this but it still makes me smile.
I particularly like the little diagrams :)

This little gem can be purchased from various Ebay sellers, for around £4.00.

Lots of posts today, as I am feeling super motivated!

I came across Illamasqua about 6 months ago and, being a hardcore MAC fan, who is sometimes disappointed by their selection of more garish or bright colours, I loved this brand straight away.

I am particularly excited about their 2010 Autumn/Winter Collection named 'Art of Darkness'.

I love the asthetics behind this and feel that it has a slightly absinthe drinking, steampunk-esque Victorian vibe.

They have already released a sneak preview in the form of their new 'Precision Ink' eyeliner.
This currently comes in 2 shades - 'Alchemy', which is a highly pigmented gold and 'Abyss', which is classic black.

'Alchemy' is my favourite, so this will definitely be purchased by me and I will look forward to creating some new looks with it - I think it would look fab against a purple or royal blue eyeshadow <3

What are your thoughts on the new collection and what is your favourite Illamasqua product?

Japanese/Korean Beauty and Skincare Brands

Recently, I have been thinking a lot about the different Japanese/Korean beauty and skincare choices there are out there and am really keen to try them, in particular the BB creams.

Here are a few products I have my eye on:
'Morning Set' from Dodo Palgantong

Shills Limited Edition Cherry Blossom BB Cream

I am also keen to try some of the Etude House products.

Does anyone have any recommendations or know the best place to purchase these when you live in the UK?

Have a good day!

Models Own

I am probably the last person EVER to hear about this but I have recently come across a promotion for Models Own - 50% off using the code FACEBOOK50.

I have heard that the nail varnishes are fab but would love to know your thoughts on them.

My favourite's are 'Lilac Dream', and 'Pastel Pink', although the glitter ones look lovely as well.

What is the best thing you have done today?

I have started this blog after being inspired by the other blogs I have come across and loved, mainly make up review blogs.
I know there are millions of blogs out there but I am hoping that my mix of reviews, rants, crafts and everyday life will be enjoyable to read and if not, at least it has been a creative outlet for my inane mutterings and ramblings!

Much love
