FRANK-N-FURTER



I was so so excited when I heard about MAC releasing a Rocky Horror Collection and immediately wanted to know what exactly was in the collection, all the shades ect. I was most attracted to the lipsticks because of the packaging of course, which is a shiny black plastic with the famous red lips on the front. The outer packing again has the red lips on the front but inside has a black and white print of all the characters from the film.

 At first, Sin was the one that caught my eye but after reading on blog posts that it was the most drying, put me off. So with that I went for the most popular of all Frank-N-Furter. After refreshing the MAC website for a good hour or two it was finally released and I quickly added the lipstick to my basket. I've actually seen people say the lipsticks sold out within 2 minutes of release! 

The best way I can describe the colour of this lipstick that it's a pinky burgundy red (if that makes any sense at all). For a matte it is surprisingly creamy and so easy to apply! It didn't dry my lips out at all. I feel this becoming my new winter favourite.

If you missed out online this collection is released in stores tomorrow although I believe it is freestanding stores only!

Did you get anything from the Rocky Horror Collection?

MAMMA'S PIZZA


My boyfriend heard about this place from a friend of his at work and was told it's the best pizza you'll eat. It's located at Grassmarket in Edinburgh, a nice little cosy restaurant with a good atmosphere. We went on a Friday night but I've heard it can get pretty busy.

I went for the smallest 9" pizza with chicken, garlic tomatoes and rocket. I never usually get pizza with chicken as it's never to my taste but as I was getting rocket as well I figured it would give it a different taste (if that makes sense). 

I have to say it is definitely the best pizza I've ever had anyway. The tomato sauce was well flavoured and there was a nice thick layer of cheese (let's be honest we all love a load of cheese on a pizza!). I'm glad I went for the smallest as I don't think I'd have managed the medium! Even thinking about the pizza now is making me crave it again. I can't wait to go back again.

Whats the best pizza you've ever had?

MY AUTUMN LIP COMBINATION & BOURJOIS VELVET LIPSTICK REVIEW


Left to Right: Rimmel Lip Liner, Bourjois Lipstick, Both together


I was recently on the hunt for a dark red lipstick to wear to my anniversary dinner a couple weeks ago as I seem to have lost my Rimmel Lipstick in 107. After searching through all different brands, I just couldn't find the right shade I was looking for. Then I thought to have a quick glance at Bourjois and saw the Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks and the shade 08 Grand Cru was pretty much a perfect match to what I was looking for so I grabbed it. 

It has a dofer applicator just like a lipgloss which makes for smooth application. I find this to be too sheer on its own so I apply the Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in Black Tulip first all over my lips then the lipstick on top. This dries matte and my lips normally dry out a lot when I use matte finishes so I tend to avoid them but this doesn't AT ALL which is why I like it so much. As I've not worn it alone I can't say how long the lasting power is but I do know that with the lipstick it lasts all day. I have worn this in the morning, had several cups of coffee and eaten and it has still been intact at the end of the day.
This is now my favourite lip combination for autumn and for the odd dinner date.


Whats your favourite lip combination or lipstick for fall?

RIPPED EVERYTHING


River Island Jumper / Asos Jeans / Primark Boots

This is just a quick outfit post that I took with my phone which is such terrible quality in the first picture, I apologise! Today I just wanted to be very casual so this was a sort of throw on outfit.

NEWCASTLE TRIP





Last Thursday it was my boyfriend and I's three year anniversary and to celebrate he'd booked a short trip to Newcastle. I've wanted to visit for a while as I've not properly been into the centre of Newcastle.
When we arrived we had a couple of hours till check in so we took some time to walk around the centre to do some light shopping and then and to the well known bridge to take some snaps.
When it was time we headed to the Sandman Signature hotel which was so luxurious and to my boyfriends surprise directly across the road from the Newcastle Football Stadium which we had a view of from the window.


The picture of my outfit is not very good quality as I'd taken far too long to get ready so I was in a rush to make out reservation for dinner. I wore a H&M Blouse, Asos Jeans and New Look Heeled Sandals. I loved this outfit because it was dressy but still on the casual side which is what I'm all about! 
I'd definitely like to visit Newcastle again, I really enjoyed it!
