Cute Winter Outfit

Untitled #23

Hey guys, today I thought I would share with you an outfit I have been loving at the moment. A while ago I spotter this rather cute skater skirt from new look. For £17.99 I thought it was a little pricey for what it was, but in the cyber monday deals I managed to get 20% off. Seems every time I went into new look I would look at this skirt I just had to get it.
When I purchased it, it was one of those items where I was like I know exactly how I want to wear it.

So with the skirt in mind, I decided it would look great with a plain black long sleeve top. Sine the skirt has a fair amount on pattern on it I thought the plain top would look fantastic with it. I then paired it with some thick black leggings because it was rather cold, but it is just long enough to pair with tights too. 
Then while late night shopping the other night I got some awesome boots from deichmann for just £14.99. They are pictured above. So these really added to the outfit. These may look high but are super comfortable.

Then to add a little something extra to the outfit I have the fur gillet from avon. This is currently priced at £35 but I managed to snap it up for £20. It really finishes off the outfit.

I hope you enjoyed today's post. I shall see you guys again on saturday

Home Made Face/Hair Mask....FAILURE!

Hey guys, today is a bit of a fun post. A while ago I decided it would be fun to DIY my own facemask. So I did, lets just say it was a messy experience but also a lot of fun to. So I thought I would share with you guys what I did. 

First of all I started off with a few bowls,a fork, two bananas, an avocado and well that's it. I read that avocado was good for your hair and banana was good for the skin so that's why I picked these two. 

So to make them all I did was mush them up in a bowl. Yes that simple, well so I thought haha. The banana mushed up easy and I applied it to my face and left for 20 mins and it did wonders. My skin felt lovely and smooth and where I had a spot the redness had gone down a lot. I think my spot cleared away a lot faster.. So I really recommend that. I used two bananas but I think only needed one. 

Now onto the avocado hair mask, Now I thought it would be easy to mash up, but it really was not. So if you have a blender I REALLY suggest you use it. I ended up with this.... 

As you can see, its not very smooth. But me being me still decided to apply it to my hair. So I wet my hair a very little bit with a spray bottle as I thought it may help it sink in more. Then applied what you see above to my hair. Not only did I get it everywhere, the floor, the sink, the wall. I ended up with big bits of avocado in my hair, which at first I did not think it was a bad thing. Then I tried washing it out after leaving on for around half an hour. I washed it out with just warm water and well the bits did not come out my hair at all. So I decided to comb through hoping this will help get the chunky bits out. No it just squashed them more in my hair. So after around 20 ish minutes of washing, brushing this stuff out my hair I gave up. Went to bed with a few bits in my hair still. Hoping in the morning they would come out. Which they did, but after all the hassle I don't think it made any difference to my hair. So what an utter fail. 
Although I will say I may try it again but with the use of a blender!

If anyone has any fruits etc or diy face mask posts I would love it if you linked them below for me to read.

Geeky Present Ideas

Untitled #22

Hey guys, I don't know about you but to be honest me and my fella are quite geeky. So today I thought I would share with you a few presents which would be perfect for geeky friends or yourself. 

Pop Vinyl Figure - These are great little gifts, there is just far to many to choose from. From games of thrones to the nightmare before christmas. These are little figures with large heads and are rather cute. Range from around £8 onwards and can be bought on Amazon, Zavvi and even spotted some in my local HMV. 

Virtual Reality Headset - This year I have seen loads of these around, they range from around £15 onwards. Again can be bought on Amazon and any shop that tends to do gadget things. These work with most smart phones, you can download games and alsorts for them. They give a mini virtual reality headset so it will be like your in the game. I have yet to try one out yet but have seen many reviews are are meant to be rather good. Perfect for a gadget lover or gamer!

Art Print - Do you know an anime they love ? or just a character they really like. Or anything really, prints make a really good present. You can get these on all sorts of places like Etsy and places like that are the best places to look. Also you can pick up canvas pictures of marvel characters etc in loads of places now. So keep an eye out. Or if you are good draw one yourself!

Figure - Again a bit like the pop figures, you can get them a figure of some sort. From cute little Nendroid figures to sexy ones. There is lots of fake ones on Ebay so be careful when buying. I recommend places like Good Smile Company and other places for awesome anime figures. 

Plush - Last but really not least and one of my favorite things to get are plushies! My boyfriend has given me a few over the years I have been with him and I LOVE them all. Also if your friend is a Disney fan and you want a little something to add to a present I totally recommend TSUM plushies. They are adorable!

Hope you enjoyed today's post, I am sorry its a day late but my net is rubbish!
