Website Of The Week: Nasty Gal

A new feature of my blog will be to highlight a website each week, or two weeks that I think is really cool or stands out for some reasons.... This weeks website of the week (or WOTW if you're into abbreviations) is Nasty Gal. It's got amazing clothes, it's not the cheapest site but the clothes are so pretty it's worth splashing out a bit... or getting someone else to buy it for you.

Here are a few of my favourite looks:

Watermelon Suit


Jordan Skinny Jeans - Rainbow

£57.69 - Fudging LOVE these jeans!! I might try and make my own version

Vacation Swimsuit


Spiked Corset Dress


Go West Shirt


Tribal Knit Dress


Double Racer Tank - Black


Boardwalk Crochet Dress - White


Ivana Cutout Dress - Black


Can't even lie, if I had my way I'd post everything from the site but I don't have that much time on my hands.... or space on my page

Review: Benefit "They're Real" Mascara - Are they Real-ly Worth The Price?

See what I did there? 

Ok back to the point.....My lovely friend Sam decided to surprise me with a prezzie on my birthday. Pretty much since I met her I've been harping on about this mascara. I've been contemplating buying it since its release but to be honest I'm too cheap for that. At £18.50 it's not a ridiculous price to pay but under absolutely no circumstances was I willing to part with that. Even when they brought the price down at one point to £16.50 that still wasn't happening. Purely because I know that for that price I could get at least three tops and one pair of shoes from Primark, or a pair of leggings and a nice t-shirt from H&M (yes that is pretty much my rationale for everything; how much I can get from somewhere else at the same cost)....aaaaaaaannnnyyyywwaaaaaaaaaaaaayy.. my lovely friend bought it for me which was AH-MAZING... it's like she read my mind, or was intelligent enough to unpick my subtle hints such as "I WANT THAT FUDGING MASCARA SO BAD!!!" or even the more complexly coded "THAT MASCARA IS SO NICE BUT I WOULDN'T BUY IT MYSELF, SOMEONE ELSE NEEDS TO BUY IT FOR ME!!". To be honest though I wasn't actually trying to drop any hints, they were just my general ramblings every time I saw that mascara. Ok back to the important bit, I'm aware no-one asked for my life story so sorry for that. 
Here's what it looks like.

I tried it on as soon as I got home, and yes, as I expected it was awesome...and no I'm not just saying that because it was a gift, if it were rubbish I would let you know so you don't waste your money

Here's a few before and after pictures. One before mascara, one after one coat, and one after three coats... I don't even know what a proper coat is, I just keep brushing it against my eyelashes until they look remotely different. By the way I've taken the pictures at some stupid angles so you can judge the difference better.. 

Before any mascara 

After one coat

After a few coats 

Applied onto my bottom lashes 

Pros: The Wand: Love it! It's got a rounded edge like Loreal's Telescopic Explosion mascara so you can coat your corner lashes with ease..and the bristles actually pay attention to each lash to seperate them

Consistency; Not too dry and not too liquid(y) 

Packaging: The packaging is pretty nice. I've seen some hideously packaged mascara which has completely put me off buying them.. not going to mention any names *cough*cough* really I'm not, just had to cough 

I would say The Colour but black is black... actually no because some blacks looks a bit grey or brown so yeh, this black is nice ¬_¬ 

Cons: PRICE: Reduce the price! I don't care if you only reduce it for 5 minutes, just cut the price in half... no, cut it in half and then take another £3 off and I'll buy 10 of them.. deal?? No? Fine..... YOUR LOSS BENEFIT!! 

So in conclusion I love this mascara, it's now my favourite out of my vast collection of mascaras; along with Loreal Volume Million Lashes 

Rating: 7.5/10
Would I buy it again? We've just discussed that...reduce the price and then yes...yes I would

Germany Edition: OOTW Plus Some Pics, Mainly of Trees

Well hello there...long time no speak indeedy, this post could go on for years so I'm going to try and keep this short and sweet... 

I went to Germany with this lovely lady who is my best friend in the entire world... she's the slightly less brown one of the two...yes I know, she is beautiful, I'll probably shove more of her on here for beauty/hair looks... the other one is me btw... HIIIIIII!! 

Anyway... we went to Germany for a week which was LAAAVLEEYYY...Never been to Germany before despite studying it for GCSE, my school decided it was far more beneficial for our understanding of the German culture and language to take us to France.....I know.. 

Yes, so we were there for a week in which we waddled around looking at the amazing scenery, eating until our stomachs cried for help, and taking pictures of trees.... We also took a little day trip to Amsterdam which was great.... I recommend you go there for some really epic, traditional, genuine....... vintage clothing....What else did you think I was going to say??? 

So, here's some pictures of general whatnots... I'll start with my outfits of the week 
(I changed more than once some days but these are the main ones.... and yes, I pretty much wore the same pair of shoes most days) 

Monday... you want it in German too?

Absolute Disgrace!

Yes, that is directed towards myself based on the fact that I have been a HIDEOUS blogger!! I do apologise for my disgraceful lack of posts, had HEAPS... and I mean HEAPS of work to, I'm not talking about a 1,000 word essay on my favourite food or something (by the way my favourite food is everything.. actually that's a complete lie... it's everything apart from cream...and celery...and a few other bits.. so no it's not everything and I would have failed that essay)....... aaaaaaaaaanywayss... I am now FREE!!! woop woop!! so my posts will become much more regular 

I'm going on a little trip to Germany with my lovely best friend so I'll be posting some pictures up of the scenery/ outfits/ make-up looks whatever... if there's a cute dog lurking around I'll sling that on here too 

So to sum up 

I'm still alive... I haven't forgotten about you lovely people that read my blog, and I'M SORRY!!!!
