NOTD: Unicorn Glitter

I had planned to have darker nails this month, ready for Autumn, until I set my eyes on some new nail glitters. I couldn't resist and straight away started planning my unicorn nails. The huge chunky glitter on my ring finger and the iridescent, fine white glitter on my thumb were first in my plan. The white glitter would be a perfect bride glitter but on this occasion it complimented the giant glitter that sparkles pink, purple and blue. White was the perfect base coat to show off the colours from both style. From there I added a chrome powder to my middle finger, again using white as a base coat. It took me ages to finish the look off, I couldn't choose between the colours that can be seen in the glitter but finally went for a metallic purple. A statement manicure for my holidays, that's for sure!



Woodwick Crackle Candle Dupe

Woodland Wick Candle £3.99
As much as I love a good candle during any season I can't resist the crackle of a Woodwick candle in the Autumn and Winter months. It instantly adds an element of cosiness that my living room is missing without a fire. I also can't fault the scent pay off from Woodwick candles, they are absolutely amazing and filling the room. But unfortunately my other half always has something to say when I have my eye on a new candle. It tends to be something along the lines of 'another candle' or 'really, don't you already have that one?' That was, until we found the Woodland Wick candles in B&M. 


Though a slightly different shape than the Woodwick candles you can instantly see the similarities with the wooden style lid and the name. I instantly loved the scent of the French Vanilla candle and was impressed by the big round glass packaging. This candle cost less than £5 and will burn for 50 hours. The wooden wick gives off a cosy crackle and the wax melts away quite evenly. The scent is strong enough to fill the room just like a Woodwick candle at well over half the price (4 times cheaper than some of the others that burn for 50 hours)! The only thing I'm wary of is the height of the flame. You do have to be very careful that there's nothing anywhere near it. Mine has pride of place in the middle of the coffee table and it's safely away from everything.



So, if you like the crackle of a Woodwick candle I'd highly recommend checking out B&M to see if you can try out the Woodland Wick version. The choice of fragrance might not be as big as Woodwick but there's bound to be one that takes your fancy!

Autumn Haul - New Look, H&M and Superdrug

Tan Chelsea Boots £27.99 
How Autumnal does this picture look? I'm loving mustard yellow at the moment and it's in every High Street shop. This jumper is a little bargain and brilliant for a simple, day to day outfit with a pair of jeans. It's not too thick so I can wear it already without melting.
Last year my favourite boots were black had a big chunky heel and platform, this year I wanted a little tan pair and these Chelsea Boots were bang on trend. Comfortable and waterproof, they're practical too.


Grey Choker Jumper £17.99 (and £3.60 off with student discount)
Tan Loafers £17.99 (and £3.60 off with student discount)
I popped into New Look before going on my city break to Nuremberg and somehow ended up buying things from the 915 Generation range rather than the adult section. The shoes go up to a size 5 or 6 which is perfect for me. These tan loafers are a suede style flat shoe that I'll be wearing loads. The jumper is so soft and comfortable. 



Superdrug were on point with their skincare offers this month. From Buy One Get One Free to a Carmex gift set worth over £5, I made a fair few savings. The Simple Moisturisers are actually for my fiance because I don't do sharing skincare very well. I knew if I got him some Simple moisturisers he'd leave mine alone. 
The L'Oreal Pure Clay range has had amazing reviews, they were on offer and my GlamGlow ran out and needed replaced. 
If I could recommend one deodorant it would be the Dove Maximum Protection. I actually meant to buy the Sure one but the Pomegranate scent jumped out at me and both brands were the same price.

Superdrug Christmas Gifts Top Picks



Last week I shared my top picks from the Boots Christmas range and this time it's the turn of Superdrug. They've got some great brands on board and tons of money saving options where you can saved up to half price on some of the sets. Superdrug seems to have most age groups covered with some really nice gifts for all sorts of beauty lovers. 


The girls and I all absolutely love cocktail nights and this little shower gel set would be fab in a cocktail themed parcel. The 6 different scents are some of the best flavours, you could even split these up and make some flavour specific gifts. Full price it's only £2 per bottle!

Zoella's Christmas beauty range is available from Superdrug and there's a few quite exciting newbies. The No Peeking Stocking Set caught my eye, probably because it's the most Christmassy of them all, and I don't have a stocking yet. Inside is 3 Snowella mini products; a body wash, body lotion and body polish.   

A brush set is a really nice Christmas gift for girls just starting out with makeup or for people who've been using the same old brushes for far too long. I really liked the look of this Studio London set because it seems to cover all bases, the only naff part is the little sponge eyeshadow applicators but for the price I'll see past them!

This is a gorgeous little gift and really affordable when it comes to candles. Quite often  I'm gifted loads of Christmas and winter scented candles and I can't get through them all before the festivities are over and the season has changed. This fruity candle with coconut and amber scents sound like something that will see me through into Spring.

Essie is one of my favourite brands of nails varnish as the last well without chipping. This duo is just slightly cheaper than buying individual bottles making this a nice stocking filler if Tiffany Blue and Glitter is up your street.

Just like the Boots post I've got another brow gift set picked out, but this time by Makeup Revolution. The Pro Brow Amplification kit has all the products you could possibly need to fill, sculpt and enhance your brows. I like how wide the range of shades is in the set and the 2 brushes look really good for achieving perfect brows.
