Dusky Mauve ♥

Barry M brought out some new nail varnish colours and I've managed to get my hands on the 'Dusky Mauve' colour <3
I was actually getting this for Jen since we are doing a swap and this was one of the only things that she asked for! After looking in many Boots and Superdrug stores I found it in the last shop I visited! AND I bought the last 2 bottles XD
Don't worry Jen your one is on it's way! 

(L-R Limited Edition(no name), Duskt Mauve)

The Limited Edition one is a purpley pink colour and for some reason I dont know what the name is -.-
Dusky Mauve is a purpley brown colour! It's really cool <3
Gives a pearly effect aswell :)

Sorry about the gross cut on my finger :( and the really bad photographs ugh! 
I need photography lessons!
This is what it looks like with 2 coats each in different lighting the Dusky Mauve changes from browns to purple <3
(Christina, I know you want this colour so I'll keep an eye out and buy you a bottle ok?? If not you can use mine when you come back =])

I love Barry M :) they're really affordable and they have a wide range of colours,
Another thing I like from them is the Dazzle Dusts, I actually used the dazzle dusts before I used their nail polishes but I love them both just as much :)

Feeling Broody XD I Think There's Trouble!

Yesterday I met my Niece and Nephew for the 1st time!
The travelled all the way from the Glorious USA!
My cousin moved over there a few years ago so it was a surprise to see them again
I've got a really BIG Asian Family so it means big celebrations are total chaos!
But they're always enjoyable <3

Please meet my adorable family members!

(L-R Sean(Nephew) Ethan(Cousin) Kayley(Niece))

 So my cousin Ethan is the youngest out of the three of them and he's totally adorable! 
On some days he even calls me mum -.- 
Kayley is really shy and just smiles when you talk to her XD
Sean is the wild child! OMG i don't think he really like me either, he gave me the most evil look when i called for him! Lol

Meet Caitlin, Ethan's sister, she's an evil evil witch! But too adorable to not love! 
Ugh she totally uses and abuses me *Sob*
 She only comes to me when she wants to use my lipstick and she's only 3! 

 A group photo XD
My aunt forced me to crouch down since she HATES that I'm taller than her! haha 

But the main reason apart from meeting my cousin again is that it was to celebrate my baby sisters birthday!
She's turning 10 tomorrow (Thursday) but since my mum only has tuesdays off we generally celebrate everything then :)

My mum ordered her a Hello Kitty cake, personally I thought it looked pretty deformed XD
 But it tasted delicious none the less!

My final note, I'd like to say
Happy Birthday Courtney! 

I know you read my blog *facepalm*
I hope you had a good day!

Hello Kitty Overdose?

Hey Beautiful Ladies! (and guys :))
I'm soooo sorry that I haven't been blogging as often lately, I've been lacking a bit of motivation to finish any posts :(

So to cheer myself up I went out hunting for inspiration :)
Look what I found!

I got these three gorgeous eyeshadow palettes from H&M 
I'm a total sucker for cute packaging so I just had to buy them <3

 This is the cute Angel Hello Kitty

 Swatched on my arm :)
The colours in this palette are quite neutral so its fantastic for everyday usage

 The Devil Hello Kitty :)

 The colours in this palette are more bright and daring
So it's quite a good range for day and night <3

 A Princess Hello Kitty
Doesn't she look adorable?

 Love all the colours in this palette 
The pigmentation in all of these aren't fantastic but they are usable and  very affordable :)
Perfect for everyday use and if your on a tight budget <3

When I was in Nottingham, dropping off my 'Beloved' Sister Christina, we went shopping in the sales to see what we could pick up! 
I really wanted more YSL lipsticks after i got the one for my christmas off the hubby, so when I saw the sale sign I skipped along to the counter XD
Found these babies in the sale for £14 each <3

 No 93 - Rose Litchi & No 94 - Orange Sanguine

The colours are quite sheer <3 
They glide on easily and smell delicious!
The Litchi one smells really fruity yum :) My camera has kinda washed out the colour it looks more pink when worn

With my mini haul part 1 over with hopefully I can get part 2 up tomorrow XD
As most of my twitter followers know, I'm going to HK soon *squeals* I'm so excited!
Do any of my followers live in HK? Gah would love to meet some of you!
 Getting to the point, I'm planning a giveaway which I will post like the week before I go away and it will run up till the day I get back! Just gathering all the items together and get the picture up :)
 Should I make a Vlog for my giveaway or post about it? hmmmm...

Thanks for reading! Let me know what you guys think!

From Australia With Love...

Today, I received this super sweet goody bag in the post :)
It's from the beautiful Jennifer!
(It's so freaky she has exactly the same name as my cousin XD)

I was super excited and prancing around my living room with the package!

What was meant to be a card swap for the festive season ended up as a love package! 
Jen your too generous! 
Inside the card was the sweetest message ever! 
She's sent me some Australian brands which I cant get in the UK

A Closer look:
Models Prefer Eyeshadow Palette in Plum

All quite neutral colours which I can use everyday and they're very pigmented! 
Love Love Love <3

BYS Blusher in Coral

 I just adore the colour! Gives off a really golden glow in the light <3

Two gorgeous polishes! 
BYS in Pouty Purple and Australis in Pink Pluto

Both with two coats on I love the purple (one of my fave colours other than blue)
The pink is very girly <3

And the cutest Lipbalms ever!

 They look sooooo yummy and smell it too!

Once again Thank you so much Jen!
Can't wait til our future swaps!

P.S If anyone is interested in doing a swap with me just leave me a comment on here or twitter you can also contact me by email! Can't wait to hear from you all <3

Lust it...Love it

Recently I was stalking Exotic Japan's blog and Tom posted some very nice pics!
Check out his blog he's rly artsy and cool!

When I saw this pic I fell in love instantly!

(Curtsy of Tom's Blog)
How Adorable is this suit?!?!?!?
So I began my mission of hunting down this Hoodie&Shorts set!
Took me a little while but I finally found it here!
It comes in different patterns aswell! 
I want them all!!!
They're $80 usd a set WITHOUT shipping... OUTRAGEOUS PRICES!
So it looks like i won't be buying them *sob* since im goin away on holiday i'd rather spend that money abroad =]
But i'll definitely get them when I come back :)

Lately I've been craving for Lucky Charms... but at £7.50 a box I'm not willing to part with my money that way XD

Thanks for reading!

Oh My...GOSH!! Welcome to the Family

I walked into Superdrug and walked back out with these babies:

I've never tried Gosh cosmetics before but when these were going at half price I couldn't resist!
When can you get a better chance to try something new?!

In the same order from left to right:
564 - Golden Dragon
550 - Purple Heart
593 - Midnight Blue
566 - Metallic Blue 
568 - Metallic Purple

This is the effect after one coating!
Very pigmented, I'm really happy with the results!
Eventhough the Purple Heart looks more close to a shimmery black than a purple and the Metallic Purple looks like a pale pink colour, overall I'm pretty happy with my polish haul <3

As for the 'Welcome to the family' part... 
Well I'd like to announce that I've got a new member joining my VW Family!

I received this gorgeous locket off My Darling Xai (Check out her blog! She's new)
I've actually know her since my 'Chinese school' days XD 
 She's one of the most sweetest and thoughtful person I've ever met!
She knows how much I LOVE Vivienne Westwood and bought me this as a Christmas Gift!
Thank you so much MuiMui <3

 Much Love and Thanks for reading!
Stay Beautiful Girls and Guys

Surprises from Xmas :)

Just wanted to share some of the makeup items I got for Christmas :)

So the hubby kept asking me what I wanted for Christmas, I'm pretty indecisive so I just kept saying anything!
When Christmas day came round I panicked because I didn't know what I was going to end up with!
With my fingers crossed I opened up the package to reveal this:

A MAC Box <3


A Pigment in Tan which is a Bronzy Brown!

Paint Pot in Painterly, very neutral skin colour 

It looks really pale here but it's actually really close to my skintone colour :)

Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Peachykeen

Peachy in colour, not too bright, definitely wearable everyday!

Also as an extra surprise he bought me a YSL Lipstick!

There's a little mirror on the lid aswell which is really convenient and very cute <3

Top - YSL Lipstick
Bottom - MAC Pigment

Gosh I'm spoilt XD
