Wah Nails

Over the last few years I have become SO obsessed with nails - going to get them done is literally my favourite time of the month!

As a graduation present, I got treated to an appointment at Wah nails in Topshop Oxford Street - WOOHOO! Wah has always been one of those places that I have ALWAYS wanted to go to, but have just never had the money to, so you can imagine I was over the moon!

I got nude triangles with pyramid studs. They do it ALL by hand and literally never make a mistake! For £55 I got infills and nail art. You can mix up the designs and ask for whatever you want on each nail, it doesn't all have to be the same. 

The Wah girls use Models Own and Essie which have some amazing colours. For the art they either use the Models Own Nail Art Pen (£6) or a Nail Striper. I loved my nails so much, I went back two weeks later to a different design! 

This time, I went for nude leopard print (if you hadn't already noticed, I'm literally obsessed with nude nails at the moment) This time, purely for the art it was £30... yes a little too expensive for me, but I loved it so much before I just didnt' care! 

If you can, I would highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend going into Wah for a nail makeover. They have branches in Oxford Street Topshop and Dalston have 70 designs to choose from.

So what are you waiting for? Get WAH'd!

Have you been to Wah nails? What design did you get? Post me a photo of your nails!!

November Skin & Haircare Favs

Having just started my blog, I decided to include a monthly favs post to show you guys what Im using at the moment and what I'm loving each month. 

1. Tangle Teezer / £12.25

As my hairs quite damaged and fine at the moment from colouring OVERKILL I've been trying EVERYTHING to try and make it grow and get its condition back. My friend recommended Tangle Teezer to me and it literally has made such a difference. Who knew that a good comb/brush can honestly help stop split ends and breakage eh?

I've been using this product for about a month now and can really tell a difference in my hair. It feels a lot smoother and cleaner after being washed. I really love the spray as it gives great coverage and has a lovely texture making hair feel silky smooth and extremely healthy after blow drying.

I went to the hairdressers the other day and asked them what will help my hair grow and help its condition. They recommended Kerastase shampoo by L'Oreal, which I'd personally never heard of and as I'm desperate just really didn't care about the price!

I've only used it once and it has literally made my hair feel the softest it has in a ages. The shampoo claims to condition and improve the scalp which the hairdresser told me is the most important thing to concentrate on when growing hair. I usually struggle with good shampoos and find that a lot of them dont even wash my hair properly but this was truly amazing after the first wash and hopefully will make a difference and promote hair growth in the long run (I'll keep you posted)

I love Aussie products and have been using this for a while. I think its by far the best leave in conditioner and without fail, always makes my hair feel healthy, extremely shiny and conditioned properly - the price is right too!

Can't really say much about this product apart from that its my favourite wash out conditioner. I love the smell, love the texture and it never lets me down! Most thorough conditioner I've used and actually really does what it says and conditions hair, unlike some other products! 

This has to be my absolute FAV at the moment. I swear by Origins (as does all the women in my family) and this has to be the best cleanser I've ever used and that is a BIG statement! It literally does what it says on the tin - brightens up my skin. After every single wash my skin instantly looks so much brighter and feels incredibly smooth and clean. It doesn't leave my skin feeling dry at all and it really gets rid of blemishes in one wash. HIGHLY recommend! 

I've never used Dr.Jart+ skincare and got given this serum to try out. Its AMAZING. The serum is not heavy at all and my skin immediately absorbs it, without feeling sticky or like I've even applied anything on. I'm usually not a fan of serums but I will defo continue to use this, its helped me skin to look and now even feel better. 

My second favourite product at the moment. It feels just water but with gel like finish (if that makes sense!) I describe it as a drink for my skin. The texture is great and feels like a gel minus the sticky feeling. It instantly sinks into skin, making it feel like nothing has even been applied. As my skins not been great Ive been using this in replacement to moisturiser and its absolutely works a treat. It hydrates and brightens skin with just a few drops and has definitely made an improvement. Its filled with amazing, natural vitamins and I can say from experience defo improves the quality of skin if you struggle from spots. Because of this product, I now officially call myself a 'Dr.Jarter' and consider it one of the best skincare ranges I have ever tried.

Graduation Outfit

To imagine that this time next week I will be fully graduated is SO weird. University literally flew by. However, graduation calls for one thing... graduation OUTFIT - an excuse to shop again! WHOOP! In the search for an outfit, I've been actually really lucky. I've already got my dress and shoes and am now ready to put on my gown. 

Karen Millen £85 on sale!


Cannot wait to get up there and finally graduate now! 

Have you graduated? What did you wear on your graduation?

Halloween Make-Up

Soo I absolutely LOVE Halloween. Its an excuse (not that I need one) to eat lotss of SWEETS and chocolate and most importantly... DRESS UP! But sadly, as I'm no longer at uni and now working full time, I had and have absolutely nothing planned... WAH! So in tribute and memory of my best and most favourite halloween costume and make-up to date, I thought I would share my look from last year with you, just incase your in need for some inspiration this Halloween weekend. 

What I used

Eyes: I used Rimmel Liquid Eyeliner all over the top of the eye to create a cats eyes look with a big swish towards the ends. I also used Rimmel Black Kohl Eyeliner to smudge the ends of the liners of the swish. Finally I used Maybelline Colossal Mascara for extra volume and spiderish clumpyness to my lashes. 

Face: MAC blusher in Peachykeen, its a quite a bright sheer red/pink colour with a touch of shimmer - my favourite! 

Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry. This is literally the BEST dark burgundy lipstick I've ever tried. It applies well, provides great coverage and literally stays on all night! 

Other: The spiders I bought for £1 from Asda and stuck on with eyelash glue. My extra spider legs were from my local fancy dress shop, costing £2 each (I bought 4 in total) and were actually cats tails! I cut holes in my top and stuck them out the sides. I wore plain black leggings and a long sleeved black top with black boots (ALL from Primark!) I put my hair up, slicked back in a simple ponytail. 

Considering I'm quite a long person anyway, this look was probably the easiest and ended up actually suiting me! Its sooo easy, effective and cheap to do, if you want a look thats daring but still keeps it cool I would defo recommend this. 

What look did you go for this Halloween? Whats tips do you have for a great Halloween makeover?
