It's Friday! First day of the weekend for us! I went out for a few drinks with the girls from work last night and I am suprisingly fresh this morning, for a change! I used my ghds to curl the front of my hair this morning, but I am obviously not very good at it. Hoping to go to The Cheesecake Factory that just opened in Dubai Mall today but we tried to go last Friday and the wait was two hours, so I just took out a piece of blueberry and white chocolate cheesecake, which was amazing. Maybe today I will get a chance to sit in. What have you guys got planned this weekend?
As previously mentioned I am loving my instagram app at the minute. Here are a few recent photos for you guys!
My ever growing shoe collection
Bought this body the day after watching Katy Perry Part of Me. Dunno if I can rock it like she can.
Got my conch pierced last month
Everyone loves a disney DVD
And I have reached 100 followers! THANK YOU GUYS! I'm super excited about that and hopefully will find the time to post an OOTD tomorrow considering it's the start of the weekend. Hope you guys are having a good week x
Sorry I have been such a rubbish blogger recently! I am going back to home to Dubai next Saturday so hopefully I will be a bit more settled and less of traveling here, there and everywhere across Scotland. I have also been busy trying to sell my flat, getting involved in a bit of DIY and painting. I have started to involve myself in Instagram alot more now so feel free to follow me, my name is stormerxx. Hope everyone is enjoying the bank holiday weekend and I have lots planned to share with you guys, so keep an eye out!
Last week while browsing through Boots, I spotted that 17 had a new mascara on offer, the Blow Out Volumise Sculpt Tease Mascara which promised x12 volume. It also came with a free Blow Out Jumbo Eyliner in Blackest Black. The mascara was £6.29 and with a free eyeliner too, I felt it would be rude to say no to that!
The mascara tube, it's quite bulky

I must start out by saying my eyes have actually been really sensitive recently but I have had no problem with this mascara and eyeliner which is really good as my MAC Zoom Lash was causing my eyes to sting and water, making the rest of my make up run, and that was becoming a massive pain in the ass. It does really lengthen you lashes and and makes them stand out but I do feel my lashes aren't as thick looking as I would like them too but on the whole I a pretty happy with my purchase. The only problem I have is I found the wand to be a bit big, which made doing my lower lashes tricky. The eyeliner is nice and soft which makes application very easy, but again the size of the product means it produces a very thick line which doesn't give you a very subtle look so I would avoid if heavy black eyeliner is not your thing. As for repurchasing, I would definitely consider buying the Mascara again for the length it delivers but I don't think the eyeliner will be making a reappearance.
I usually keep my own nails nice and short but when I came back to the UK in July my cousins convinced me to go to their local nail salon and get acrylics put on. It's been a few years since I have had acrylics on as they completely ruin your nails underneath and to be honest I find they get in my way a lot, but I am off work till September and they always look much neater than my own nail so I thought why the hell not. I am currently rocking these glitter tips:
They are quite nice and simple, and I love the purple colour but after a few weeks I must admit I am a bit bored and the work of Disco Nails Japan has caught my eye.
All the images above are the work of Disco Nails Japan and I love it! Next time I get my nails done I would love to get something similar. I just wish I was talented enough to do stuff like this myself, as several people on my blog roll list are! What's your opinion on Nail Art? A hit or a miss?
I have had my eye on a few dresses from Dorothy Perkins for a while now and yesterday almost caved in and ordered them online but thank goodness I didn't as this morning I got an email saying they have 20% off dresses until Friday. I ran straight to my nearest store and unfortunately they only had one of the dresses I wanted to buy. I decided to buy it anyway but now I don't know wether to order the other one online and now have to pay for delivery as the amount would fall below the total need to get free delivery, or should I order another dress to make the most of the order and get free delivery? Decisions, decisions. Anyway here is the dress I actually bought:
Perfume Peter Pan Dress- Was £39.50 and I think I paid £31.25
Raspberry Bird Cage Print Dress- £38.00
This is the dress I really wanted to get as I think it will be great for work
Ruby Rocks Yellow Bird Print Dress- £26.00
I love the cute print on this one too
Ruby Rocks Print Dipped Hem Dress- £ 32.00
Again with the birds! Seems to be a bit of a theme going on here!
I wore this for a quick trip into town to have lunch with my boyfriend's family today. Ended up having a burger at TGI Fridays which was pretty good. I bought this jacket in River Island on the weekend, it's suppose to be for school but I love it too much to not wear it all the time!
