Excuse Moi.......

Yes that's what I'm wearing on my nails right now, it's an OPI polish from the muppets collection which recently got released. Excuse Moi is a gorgeous warm pink with glitter. The glitter is medium sized and rainbow coloured. It's very opaque, you could get away with wearing 1 coat easily but I always prefer 2 coats. It's a lovely polish that can glam up any outfit, I felt very christmasy wearing it this week as all the shops have their christmas songs on and christmas decorations up.

It's a very unique colour and I recommend you at least look at it in a salon. It's by far my favourite glitter polish by OPI, normally I find glitter polishes very sheer, in order to have a nice even coat you really have to layer it on but surprisingly enough with Excuse Moi it speaks for itself :)

The first picture is with 1 coat and the second picture is with 2 coats.

Do you own this polish? Do you like it? and what's your favourite glitter nail varnish?

OOTD~ A Cozy Saturday

Hey Lovelies 

I hope you're all doing well? I thought I would show you my outfit for today. It's starting to get windier here and the temperatures are SLOWLY dropping, it's now around 6-8 degrees. Winter is coming and I'm not really looking forward to massive amounts of snow for 6 months (although I am partial to snow at christmas) :) I can't believe it's only 5 ish weeks away.......EEEEeeeeeeeekkkkkkkk

Anyways enough of my ramblings.....onto my outfit :)

White Bf Tank: American Eagle
Blue Bf Tank: American Eagle
Chunky Knit Cardigan: American Eagle
Black Jeggings: American Eagle
Belt:A little market in Greece 
Bracelet: A gift from a friend

Wow I've only just realized my whole outfit is from American Eagle haha...thats what you get for working there! I'm absolutely in love with this cardigan, it's big, it's chunky and it's so warm. I love the patterns and the different colours used. It looks amazing on it's own and cinched around the waist with a belt. For me it's a must have for winter

NOTD..... It's a maroon/plum kind of day!

Hey Lovelies

So I know I've been out of the blogging world for a while, I've been pretty busy working my 2 jobs.

Anyways I wanted to show you this beautiful nail colour. It's the perfect shade between maroon and plum and also the perfect transition colour to wear from autumn to winter. It's by Essie and it's called In Stitches (I received this in my luxe box)

What's your favourite Essie nail colour?

Want beauty samples????

So I  received my July Luxebox *hooray*
"Luxe Box is a new and exciting subscription service that delivers beauty products to you to try in the comfort of your own home."
I'm sure you're all aware of Birchbox (US) and Glossybox (UK) well I came across some blogposts about a Canadian version called Luxebox by Loosebutton. 
I was very intrigued by this as it's such a unique idea. It's a monthly subscription of beauty samples in which you receive make up, skincare and hair care.  It's $12 a month plus taxes which I think is a pretty good price for the amount you receive.

They send you 3-5 deluxe samples each month, now they are not tiny samples like the ones you get in Sephora or other shops that are aimed for 1- 2 uses, these deluxe samples can last up to a few weeks.

They give you a small leaflet to tell you what is in the box and some information about the actual product which is always a nice touch and handy to know right?

It came nicely packaged, it's a really nice touch and shows that they care for the customers :) It definitely put a smile on my face to see it packaged so perfectly and creatively.

They try to customise your box to suit your skin type and needs. I'm not saying that everyone will get something different I just mean you may get a different shade to someone else depending on what you like.

A full sized Essie Polish in 'In Stitches' :) 

Lets face it we all know it's annoying when you buy a full sized product and you end up hating it or it doesn't work for you for one reason or another. This monthly subscription allows you to try out different products without having that problem.

It's very good value for money and I'm thoroughly impressed with my first luxebox (so much that I've upgraded to the quarterly subscription) and will be telling my friends and my blogger friends about this company.

I wish they did the same thing as birchbox where you get points each time you purchase a birchbox and things are cheaper to buy on their site as opposed to the actual brand sites or the company sites....but hey you can't have everything :)

This is a great company who really cares about presentation and what their customers think about the products :)

Has anyone tried Luxe box....what did you think? Let me know if you got something different to me :)

I hope this post was helpful and I strongly recommend this subscription..... *Good job Luxebox*

*This months Luxebox was purchased by yours truly and all opinions are obviously my own*

OOTN......We run this world!

I went out with my friends last weekend to celebrate my best friend going back to England :( 
It's been so nice having her here, it definitely reminded me of the old times :)

So here is what I wore 

Dress: Some Indian Boutique in London
Belt: New Look
Shoes: Aldo

The dress was a lovely bright blue colour, it was a chiffon material with big blue pearl beads around the neckline. It's flowy but tight at the same time because it's a bubble hemline, I love this dress it's one of my favourites because it's unique and dressy enough to wear to any occasion.

Ins & Outs ♥

Hey Girls :)

I hope you're all doing well, it's been a while. Now I'm not going to apologize for not doing blog posts lately because this is a hobby for me not a job. I guess I was stuck in a rut with blogging and had no motivation or inspration to write blog posts. I was thinking about it and I would rather do a really good detailed blog post than loads of small undetailed posts. 

I hope you guys understand and I'm sure you have felt the same way while blogging....lets face it everyone gets in a blogging rut sometimes and loses their mojo!

So here's a new post about things I'm loving at the minute :) 

Summer is finally making an appearance in Canada... The past week has been so nice....I can't wait for more sun :)

My best friend from England is coming to visit me....lots of memories to be made 

The Voice....I love this new tv show

Pitbull- Give Me Everything ft. Neyo....I love this song and it's definitely catchy, it may even be the summer tune to remember

Boscia Daily Moisture Moisturiser 

Clarisonic Mia 

Scouting for Girls....I've been listening to their older songs recently, it just reminds me of being at T4 on the beach. I miss those days!


All the good Tv shows have ended :( Boo to season finales. 

A full face of make- up....I'm not down for that now it's starting to get hotter. Tinted Moisturiser all the way :)

Wow I guess I'm not hating much this month

I'm So Proud to be British!

Today was the day that people have been talking about for months and months......

THE ROYAL WEDDING......... People have been speculating what Kate's dress would look like, 'how she would do her hair and make up'.

I personally think she looked stunning and very princess esque, her dress was very elegant and feminine and I think it suited her as well.

This was the dress she wore for the evening reception, both her wedding and evening dress were by the late Alexander Mcqueen and are equally stunning although I prefer the evening dress just because I love big flowy dresses. Her sister's dress was also by Alexander Mcqueen.....Go British designers :)

I didn't catch the whole wedding as it was aired live at 4/5am in Canada but I watched the main highlights :) I kind of wish I went back home to Oxford or London because I think the atmosphere would be amazing there right now, everyone would be on a natural high.

Did you watch The Royal Wedding and what were your thoughts on her dress?

Congratulations Will and Kate, it was definitely an enjoyable thing to watch on TV...agreed?

I've got some new shoes on and suddenly everything is right!

Hey My Lovelies

So I unfortunately missed out on the Cynthia Vincent wedges last summer so when the Dolce Vita shoes hit target I decided it was my PERSONAL MISSION to purchase them! 

As we don't have a target in Canada and they don't ship to Canada either I was pretty stuck as I wasn't planning a trip across the border anytime soon. Luckily I have friends in the states who offered to ship it to their house and then my dad brought them over :)! My dad travels to the US a lot for work which is a bonus pour moi! 

So without further ado here are the shoesies :)!

These are the Dolce Vita wedges in black. I absolutely adore the look of these shoes, they are very classy yet edgy because of the black straps and the pattern. The wedge has gold strands/reflects on them which is interesting and makes it sparkle in the sunlight. These look perfect with jeggings/skinny jeans and dresses/skirts, I can't wait to wear them in summer.......C'mon hot weather :)!

These flats were a steal at $6.99 in the sale, they are by a brand called Xhilaration.....I love the colour and the pretty flower detail it's so cute. I can tell I'm going to get a lot of use out of these :)

I can't wait to wear them especially the wedges :)!

My Perfect Imperfections

Ok so we all know that the perfect imperfections tag was a huge hit on youtube and probably one of the most popular tags as well as the boyfriend tag! 

I wanted to jump on the bandwagon and put in my 2 cents but I don't make videos on youtube (should I?) so I thought I would do a blog post! :) I think this is a really good and interesting tag because it shows you that not everyone is perfect and everyone has these little imperfections  but no one else notices them. I think imperfections are unique and beautiful and it's what makes you....... well YOU! 

So 3 things I don't like about myself and 3 things I do, here goes......

I don't like 
I have a love hate relationship with my complexion in the sense that I was a blonde haired blue eyed baby so I'm naturally very fair......thank you mum and dad! Sometimes I love being pale/fair and sometimes it's annoying especially in the winter but I guess majority of people have that problem. Even though I'm pale at the moment in the summer I tan very easily which I'm grateful for!

My left eye and eyebrow are slightly lower than my right (it sounds weird) but it's something I've noticed. It doesn't bother me that much but I find that my right eye make up always looks better than my left. Weirdness!

I get told that I look young, I definitely have a babyface but it also depends on my hairstyle...let me explain, when i have my hair poker straight I look younger and when I curl my hair it makes me look older. 

I do like
My eyes, I love the colour and the shape of them! My mum has light blue eyes and my dad has dark blue eyes so mine are a mix of the two :)

My legs, again I like the shape of them. I have quite slim and long legs but they are toned because I was on the athletics and Netball team in school. Go team go!

My hair, I love that my hair is thick, manageable and versatile. Every hair dresser I've met says to me "Your hair is so lovely and thick" (Although it can be a pain at times and quite costly with hairspray) Haha!

Anyways that was my perfect imperfections tag, those were just a few things that make! If you want to do this tag feel free to blog about it or leave comments!

Loves :) xoxo

Ins & Outs ♥

It's that time again my lovelies :)

♥ Jersey Shore ~ (Jersday)  Snooki is hilarious and I can't wait for next season in Italy! Haha

♥ American Eagle ~ Love their clothes and love my job.

♥ Perfect by Pink ~ I love it, the video has so much meaning to it, I like the message that the song brings. I'm a big fan of Pink I have been ever since she released "Get the party started" all those years ago.

♥ American Idol ~ there were some amazing voices in Hollywood week

♥ Sleep app ~ It's an app for the iphone which monitors your sleeping patterns and slowly wakes you up feeling refreshed and revitalized, surprisingly it works :) 

♥ My Macbook Air ~ Best christmas present ever.....Thanks Mum and Dad!

♥ Urban Decay 'Naked' Palette ~ It's lush, definitely the best palette I've purchased. It's a must have for neutral lovers like myself :)

♥ The Wanted & Mcfly ~ I've been listening to them on youtube, I'm kind of loving them right now (Cheesy I know!) Anyone else obsessed right now?

♥ Speaking to my English friends on Whatsapp


♥ The Canadian weather ~ I'm so over the snow and the cold icy wind, I'm so ready for sun, pools, beaches and cocktails!

♥Missing my Uk friends :(

I'm currently enjoying listening to Mcfly, The Wanted, Tinie Tempah, Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Jessie J, Usher!

At the moment I have 'Teach me how to dougie' stuck in my head by Cali Swag District and I have no idea why. 

Looking forward to Summer and not being so pasty! 

I'm also loving to keep up with my british tabloids that we don't get here in North America (I miss Look & Heat mags so much) 

I hope you're all well and enjoying February :) What are you loving at the moment?

My 2010!

Well as 2010 is officially over, I might as well take a look back into those 12 months. For the most part 2010 was a good year for me but it was also an emotional year, quite a few things happened that made me question my life and what I want for the future! Towards the end of the year, things were definitely looking up!

So here's the rundown........

  • I was in college learning a French course as I now lived in Montreal.
  • I discovered my love for Lush 
  • I experienced my first white winter in Canada

  • One of my old school friends died :(
  • I did an international swap with the lovely Laura from UK (talluluhbella)

  • I saw the fantastic Alicia Keys and loved it! :)

  • I finished my french course....Oh la la


  • I got a job in a cute boutique (Sex In The City style)
  • I missed my friends in UK like crazy and wanted to visit them asap.
  • I realized I love pink lips

  • I had an awesome summer with lots of sun, fun and good friends (montreal)


  • I started to doubt my decision in moving to Canada and wanted to go back to Uk



  • I had an interview with American Eagle and ended up landing a seasonal job.

  • Someone dear to me died of lung cancer
  • I had a wonderful christmas,with my parents, I was spoilt and got a Macbook Air. I also loved buying presents this year. 
  • American Eagle offered me a permanent position
  • I realized that I can be happy in Canada and should see how it goes :)

Goodbye 2010 and Happy New Year! I hope 2011 is a better year for everyone and remember the bad things that happen in life always make you stronger! 

P.S. The idea for this blog post came from the lovely Victoria at Lilyloveslola, I love her blogs and you should definitely check her out if you haven't already! I hope you don't mind! :)
