Face Of The Day with added Glitter & Jewellery.

I'd like to start off by saying a huge thank you to Fee from Make Up Savvy because I think that's how a lot of my new readers have stumbled across my blog! Fee said some wonderful things about mine and several other wonderful bloggers which was super lovely of her and I appreciate it a lot. It came at a time where I was feeling negative about the posts I was writing and a bit upset about receiving less comments than I used to get. Her lovely words kind of reassured me that I'm doing okay and I honestly do appreciate every reader I have and every single comment I receive, thank you so much! I should stop being such a negative Nelly and use this as an opportunity to write more interesting posts! 


Today while having a little rummage through my jewellery box I found the first necklace I ever made which was probably about a year ago! I was going through a super duper Alice in Wonderland phase and to be honest, I've still not grown out of that phase. I adore cutesy jewellery - Alice in Wonderland, cute animal charms and lots of bows & hearts. I'm still not 100% sure on the direction I want to take my jewellery shop in, I think it's probably going to end up being a mish mash of different styles because that's me - indecisive and a lover of lots of different things!

Dress: Love Label.
Necklace: Handmade.

Maybe the cutesy jewellery ship has sailed already & I missed the boat! I'm not sure. All I know is I'm not the biggest fan of the tribal inspired pieces that are on the high street at the moment & I definitely don't want to make things that I'm not in love with myself. I think a little bit of market research is in order for me tonight! 
The sky last night was a stunning midnight blue scattered with lots & lots of tiny stars & I was inspired to create something similar on my nails! I'm no nail artist at all, I can barely paint my nails one single colour without it looking like a three year old has done it with a spoon so I'm forever in awe of those who can create beautiful nail designs. Charlene from Dainty Dresses is one of those talented ladies who can paint nails like a pro! She's just opened her own online shop called Dainty Nails that I think everyone should go and have a little nosey at! I decided to just smother my nails in glitter since I have no talent what so ever & I LOVE it! I used Barry M Blue Glitter & then layered a bit of Eyes Lips Face Golden Goddess over the top! No talent or skill required & it satisfies my need for lots of glitter in my life - perfect!

What's your favourite type of jewellery to wear. Do you like cute items, more grown up pieces or a mixture of both? 
Also, what's your absolute favourite nail polish colour?

    I'm interested in trying witch cosmetics, would you recommend them? Also, did you get the liquid concealer from boots, as I can't see it on the website. How much did you pay for it?

    Thanks! :)

  6. I love classic and cutsey jewellery. I have both, I would especially love something Alice and Wonderland themed! I tend to wear my classic (Tiffany) jewellery just on special occasions as I am terrified of losing it while drunk!

    My favee nail polish at the moment has to be China Glaze Re-fresh mint. I've had it on for a solid week now and that never happens. I also love China glaze Agent lavender.
