Nails Of The Day 31/10/2011



Hey Everybody! Happy Halloween!<3 hope you are all having fun. These are the nails I am wearing with my Halloween outfit, I wanted to do a funky nail art with pumpkins and fun things but in the end after many attempts I found this colour was the perfect one for my look!
So it's from N'07, (£7.00 each), for ages I never wore this but just lately I've been finding it's the perfect colour for Autumn! N'07 nail polishes are also great as they have recently released a new brush and they don't chip as well!

Lovee Gabriella :)

OOTD/ReviewGoing Outside Casually?

Heey Everyone!!
If youu wanted to go outside to the park or head out for a quick cup of coffee with friends and obviously don't want to overdress here is a sample of something I would wear.






So all I would wear in the autumn coming on winter season is a cute top a massive hoodie as an overall look with whatever on the bottom I guess. BTW the majority of these clothes I'm wearing were in my recent haul have a look if you want it's huge if you ask me:)
http://beautyknowitalls.blogspot.com/2011/10/massive-haul-251011.html

MUA Shade 23 - Army Green Colour
This was only £1 and the quality is brilliant just as good as my BarryM and 17 which are both £3 and maybe just as good as my No7 collection which are £7! They don't have a huge range of colours but hopefully they will get more popular so more colours will arise.
  The picture above is only 2 coats and no top coat and I have been wearing them for 3 days now and no chipping at all! I now love MUA nail polishes.

We went to our local shopping centre (Westfield) and did what girls love to do SHOP!
Soooo let's get into what we bought.

Red is Jade
Blue is Gabby
Black is both



The Ark
Both tops were £14.99 but knowing us we got it in the sale for only £7.50. Obviously this is a summer top but with a cami underneath and a cute jacket on top you'll be toasty...sort of. this is a cropped top with the back clipped on, how funny is that!
The first one
The second one





Topshop
Both tops were only £8 but yeah reduced from £16 Topshop you are my hate but my love.
These hoodys are literally everywhere I look so I had to get one. I looked for one in The Ark but they didn't have my size and they were nearly £30 which was a price I was preared to spend BUT I w went straight to Topshop...because we saw the Sale sign (oh dear..) saw the top only £22 just not as thick and warm:( Ahhh well:)
First top
Second top


Primark
Burgandy Sandal Shoes: Reduced from £5/6 ( not sure) to £2!
Brown Lace-Ups:Reduced from £12 to £3 but wait for it - £1...WHAT!¬
Rudolph Slippers: £5.. but how cute!


Muse
Gold Heart Ring: £2 I honestly don't have any rings except one which doesn't fit, so i'm gladi got this one
Long Flower Pendulem:£3 I love long necklaces 

Superdrug
MUA Nail Polish Shade 23:£1 What a beautiful Autumn colour going to wear this all the time and it's actually really good (the picture above is only 2 coats and no topcoat)
Blending Brush: £1.99- You can use tthis as a concealer, eyeshadow or blending brush which I thought was really great! Plus its super soft.


Poundland?
Wow walked into Poundland and saw drugstore products for £1!
N.Y.C. Bronzer: Too dark for my skin unfortunatly but going to use it on some friends
N.Y.C Blush: Not great pigmentatioon however it reminds me of a MAC skin finish
Vital Radience Cream Base: I have never heard of this brand before and tbh won't look out for it because the substance is jelly like so not easy blending and absolutely stinks!

Skoob
Notebook: £2.00 Random, but I needed a new notebook and any excuse to buy this cute pad :)
Pencil: 30p Not much to say except it matchs my new pad!

Love Jade and Gabby!!

Halloween Recipe! Orange pumpkin face cookies!

Orange pumpkin face cookies


I love looking up random recipes and I was desperate to find a Halloween one! So I found this one which I love the look of! :D I know this blog isn't for recipes but I think its really fun and they just give you ideas even if you wouldn't make it! So I found this recipe and thought it sounded awesome and wanted to share it with you :)
Makes 12

Preparation and cooking times

Total time Takes 45-55 minutes, plus 1 hour chilling
Freezable Freeze without the filling

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to fan 160C/ conventional 180C/gas 4. Put the butter in a bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Add the flour, icing sugar and orange zest and beat together to make a softish dough. Knead into a ball and wrap in cling film. Chill for 1 hour.
  2. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 3mm. Cut 24 circles with a 7.5 cm round plain cutter. Put them on a couple of baking sheets.
  3. Using a small sharp knife, cut out Hallowe'en faces on 12 of the circles. Gather up the spare biscuit dough and press into pumpkin stem shapes, trimming with a sharp knife. Press to the top of each biscuit with a knife to join. Make lines on the face biscuits with the back of a roundbladed knife, to look like the markings on a pumpkin. Bake all the biscuits for about 15 minutes until pale golden. Leave to set for a while, then cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. Mix the glaze ingredients to make a smooth, runny icing, adding a bit more juice if needed, then set aside. For the filling, beat the mascarpone with the icing sugar, then stir in the cooled melted chocolate.
  5. Spread the filling over the cooled plain biscuits, then press the 'face' ones on top - do this just before you want to eat them, otherwise they go soft. Brush with the glaze, using a clean paint brush or pastry brush. Eat the same day.

Hope you guys liked that recipe comment below if you like it! and you want more random recipes :D Love Gabby :)

How to apply your lipgloss and which is best for you?

Heey Everyone!!
Ever thought about which colour lipgloss suits you and how to apply it easily with one quick slide along your lips? Hope my answer to these questions help:)

Which colour to choose?
-For pale skin: soft peaches, transparent pinks and beige
-For dark skin: orangey, apricot, bright pink or coral colours

How to apply it easily?
-Always keep your lips really soft by using a buffer, scrub or simple lip balm.
-One full coat first then if you fancy a bit more colour go for another but don't do bits at a time otherwise it'll be clumpy and gooey.

Which colour for the event?
-Everyday look, tranparent or pale pink gloss
-Vinyl look, sexy fuchsia
-Night out look, any colour with a bit of glitter
-Wild day look, a red or coral gloss

TheBodyShop Lotions review!

Hey! Everyone! Hope you liked Jade's last posts! My personal favorite bag was the Rachael Ruddick Prism stud clutches, they were stunning! ;) In this post I just wanted to review The Body Shop's lotion's because there is such a big choice so I was hoping that I could recommend to you my favorites and least favorite!
(From left to right)

1. WHITE MUSK- This scent isn't that Strong but I think musky smells are often either hated or loved. All the lotions themselves are good however I was loving the smell, if you know you like musky smells I would recommend this!

2, AQUA LILY- Weirdly I have the perfume for this and I love the smell! But although this is a lovely scent it's not my favorite. I don't think I've ever smelled an actual aqua lily (I love the smell of lilies though!) but this scent is exactly how I would imagine it to smell like, like a normal lily but also fresh and brisk like the water.

3. MANGO WHIP- My absolute favorite! I love the smell and it stays on my body nicely! Mango smelling things are my favorite from the body shop! That and Satsuma! ;)

4. MORINGA- this says it's a mil lotion and it actually has the texture of milk which I don't think isn't the nicest thing in the world, also I'm not keen on the smell, it is quite floral but it also seems quite grassy :P if you know what I mean! I don't think I would buy this one again!

Top 10 Min Bags For Autumn!

Heey Everyone!!
So to start off this information is from http://www.sofeminine.co.uk/fashion-trends/mini-bags-autumn-2011-d22415.html so if you like what you see in this post you should visit the website an see what they about the bags:)

DKNY Mini Town and Country Crossbody Bag
This bag is so cute it also comes in a light brown two colours that are absolutely great for Autumn fashion. Also J- Lo is apparently a fan of this bag so wear your labels the same as JLo;)
RRP:£95.00
Available At: Harrods or House Of Fraiser  

Mini Dot Fold Over Bag                               
          
     This Cath Kidston bag is super 
    but personally I wouldn't wear
    this particular because I think
it's just a little bit too old or
childish.               
                                            
RRP:£65.00
Available From: Cath Kidston
Desigual Mini Troquelada
Sorry about the positioning btw Blogger is not making this post easy. I hate this bag and would never ever wear it but I can see the attraction to it. A proper festival chic look and all year round, also comes in green which is a spring or Autumn bag colour.

RRP:£41.00
Available From: Sarenza
Mini quilted bag
This seems like a silly one because it's so obvious but has to be mentioned, a cheap and simple quilted bag is so perfect and select, I chose this bag because it was a beautiful rusty red colour carrying on it's quilted look through the strap.

RRP: £5.00
Available At: Pretty much any store that sells bags such as Matalan do a plain black one
Leather Mini Twist Lock Saddle Bag

An absolute statement of the year type bag don't you think!? This hardback bag with a stiff strap etc is super cute if you went for this colour or orange which i saw then go low on everything else for a casual out and about look otherwise you look like you're trying too hard or just a bit strange.....:) Also comes in black if your not ready to make the bright colour statement.

RRP:£15.00
Available At: ASOS
Daisy Sequin Cross Body Bag
Quite a metallic bag with the sequins and the rusty grey colour but I do kind of like it not my runway accessory but easy enough to wear and is doing that tie a knot in the chain style as well as seen on the quilted bag.

RRP:£26.00
Available At: Monsoon
Rachael Ruddick Prism stud clutch
These clutch bags are absolutely gorgeous and to die for. The studded bags are so rock star and punk but anyone can ear them, great for the cold season coming ahead for us in little Britain.

RRP:£140.00
Available At: Selfridges
Tokyo Work wear Mini Cross Body Bag


This bag is so gorgeous I cannot put it into words its MY FAVOURITE of the selected few because its so simple yet elegant and high fashion. It also comes in a beautiful mustard yellow which looks so office girl.


RRP:£30.00
Available At:Oasis
Cream Spotty Mini Cross Body Bag

Excuse the picture to start. This season fashion designers have proved that spots are hot and are going to be a big see in high street fashion, so pick up this little cutie yeah?
RRP:£12.00
Available At: River Island
