I just think these pieces of furniture are beautiful, their artistic with a rustic edge. I wish I was good with tools so I could make these kinds of things, maybe some youtube tutorials and a trip to B&Q is in order.

Quentin doing what he does best makes Django an amazing film and probably one of the best films I will see this year. I will admit there was a lull around the middle when I was looking at my watch to see how long there was left but when it picks up again, my god does it pick up. What I most liked about this film is the amount of times I wanted to break the cardinal rule of the cinema and reach for my phone with the sole purpose of getting shazam out. The soundtrack was just amazing, it was surprising, thoughtful and interesting. Here are just a few that stood out to me and are now uploaded to my iTunes.

Here are some things that I have coveted over the last couple of weeks...

Short and Sweet post today as I am hanging out of my ass.

Dress - Misguided
Bralet - eBay
T-Shirt - Topshop
Shoes - eBay
Belt - ASOS
Earrings - Topshop
Ring - Kukee

I think this will be a regular post because it gives you a bigger in sight into what I like and my style. I'm like most of you I'm sure and spend way to much time on the internet looking at things I shouldn't buy, its like window shopping for people who like to stay in their pyjamas all day, this was why the internet was invented.

I can not be trusted in Boots, its all the beautiful packaging and pretty colours they draw you in with their hints of the next best thing. I honestly only went in to find the perfume I plan to get next, its just so much easier to try them out in Boots rather than the perfume shop, which is where I will probably buy it, my bad, its amour amour incase you were wondering. Anyway as I've gone off subject here, thats exactly what I did in Boots, attention span on a 3 year old me. So I started to look didn't I, then I started to swatch and my hand began to look like a child's colouring book then before I knew it I've bought 2 lip products, 1 nail varnish (it was 3 for 2 what else was I supposed to do? ) a colour tattoo cream pot and a mascara. Now this doesn't seem to bad I suppose until I get home and remember how much makeup I already own, feeling a little bit guilty now, but lets face it there is no way I am taking any of it back so I justify...

My mascara is going to run out at some point and this Maybeline Rocket was on offer now, a whole £2 off. Its coming into spring this Kate Rimmel Lipstick in No. 16 will be perfect for then, its so pretty and nourishing, my lips need this. The same goes for the Rimmel Apocalips in Luna, its amazingly pigmented in a coral colour that brightens my face, I even used this bad boy the very same hour and its still on now. Talking about staying power the Maybeline Colour Tattoo is called Permanent Taupe, talk about something thats gonna last me a long time. The nail varnish isn't something I usually go for but i'm glad I did its such a subtle pink its perfect for the transition into spring. 

I bet your wondering why I only said 2 lip products earlier, thats because the 3rd one is actually from Primark, now this was an impulse buy and at £1.50 I admit I was weak. This product does remind me a bit to much of a felt-tip pen and I'm not just talking about the smell but it stays on and I think it could be a really good base I just hope it doesn't burn my lips off, fingers crossed.  I hope you enjoyed this post.

Rocking the nude eye today and I must say it does make me feel weird not wearing even mascara but I'm very happy with the outcome, looking all sleek and fashionable.

Try it out and see what you think.

Cleaning your makeup brushes is one of my worst beauty habits, in the fact that I don't tend to do it as much as I should. Doing it today though was very therapeutic, maybe it was because I was putting off writing my dissertation, who knows. Using baby shampoo worked wonders, it lathers up really nice, isn't to harsh on my brushes which is good seeing as it has to go on baby's heads and all that. I was very impressed as this was the first time I used baby shampoo to do this, I had always used brush shampoo from elf before but I wont be doing that again as this works so much better. I found a really handy drying place for all my brushes. This is just a box i keep my hair products in and its perfect because it doesn't make the brushes go all misshapen which happens when there left on a flat surface and I cant have that happening to my real techniques babies. I hope you found this helpful and will post again soon.
