During the last week I've been running a competition with F&F where you guys got to send me style dilemmas on Twitter and i had to pick one to answer with items from the F&F website. I had soooo many tweets and i really wish i could answer them all, but the one i thought would be most helpful was the one from Chloe where she asked ''How can i bring some brighter colours in to my wardrobe but keep that A/W feel?'' I thought this is something a lot of people maybe think about and could hopefully help some others out too so i hope you like what I've picked and it maybe inspires you a little bit when it comes to updating that A/W wardrobe!
Oh hello 3rd Halloween post with still one more to come! This one is all about Halloween nails, which are super easy and cheap to do. I'm not dressing up this year (sad sad times) but i want to have a little nod to my favourite night of the year so I've decided to give myself some themed nails for the big night. I featured these decals in my wishlist post and purchased them straight away, they arrived within 2 days and i knew the perfect shade to go with these would be Vivid Vermillion by Max Factor. Obviously this is just a test run, as much as i love Halloween i'm not rocking these at the moment but i wanted to show you so you have enough time to snap some up too! These gel polishes are awesome by the way, incredibly long lasting and chip free! I've been rocking Sheen Merlot this month. There's currently a 3 for 2 offer on Max Factor products at the mo too, go go go!

Party season is nearly upon us and we know how important is is to have that perfect party dress! Obviously i spend a lot of my time on eBay and so often come across some absolutely beautiful dresses so i thought i'd give them their own dedicated post. I know these won't be for everyone, but i think you can appreciate their beauty none the less! Also, they're all under £15... bargain! Have you started outfit planning yet?
NIP + FAB DRAGONS BLOOD FIX KIT - £34.45
Ok, so the title is pretty intriguing right? So it's not actually dragons blood, because dragons don't exist duh and i can confirm the product doesn't contain any blood either. In fact it actually contains latex from the croton lechleri tree which can be found in South America. Locals use the latex (nicknamed dragons blood) as a liquid bandage and there's certain chemicals in there too which have wound healing properties. Pretty cool huh? So it makes a lot of sense for dragons blood to be in skin care products. Dragons Blood Fix Plumping Serum is wonderful at hydrating the skin, the hyaluronic acid keeps the skin fresh, other ingredients are designed to absorb excess oil and illuminate skin. I live in a very cold house and i work somewhere with air conditioning on all the time, so my skin is seriously suffering at the moment. I've used this over the past few weeks and it does make a massive difference when i wake up in the morning. I can suffer with dry skin around my eyes and on my cheeks but since using this i haven't had that problem at all! The Dragons Blood Fix Plumping Mask is perfect for those who do like a face mask to really get inside and cleanse. It claims to plumb the look of wrinkles and refine skins appearance which i can't say I've found, maybe i should use it as an over night mask instead of a 10 minute one. However, i do like what it does for my skin, it certainly makes tigher whilst it's on and i certainly feel like it gets rid of all the rubbish under my skin and so for that reason i think it's a great little product. Finally, we have the Dragons Blood Fix Cleansing Pads, these are nice for days when I've been at work all day and have taken my make up off and want to wake my skin up a bit. You only need two pads max and they leave your skin ready for some moisturiser! Perfect!
