Harajuku Lovers Wicked Styles Lil' Angel & Hello Kitty stuff

Today I picked up this brand new Lil' Angel Harajuku Lovers perfume! The new selection of HL's are named 'Wicked Styles'. Each HL had their own style from Japanese culture. Anyone who knows me knows I love Japanese culture and these styles are amazing. Lil' Angel is dressed in the Gothic Lolita style, which is one of my favourites. Something else I love about these is the fact that their hair is a felt sort of material. It's so lovely.

These are on sale now for £20.

I also got some Hello Kitty items today -

This is an alarm clock & money box rolled into one! I loooove it!

My new Hello Kitty watch! I got this while it was listed on Boots' website for £15.66. It's now on there for £40! So I got a bargain!

My new Hello Kitty x Harrods plush! I adore this so much. It's so pretty.

Barry M Indigo Nail Paint Review

Barry M Indigo Nail Paint
£2.95 from

I've been a massive fan of Barry M Nail Paints for a couple of years now and I try to buy the new ones when they come out. So when I saw that two new colours and the Instant Nail Effects had been released I rushed out to purchase them. Sadly the only one that was in stock at both Superdrug and Boots was the Indigo one. I picked that one up and hopefully I'll be able to get the others in the near future.
The photo above makes this nail paint look a little bit more blue than it really is in the pot. It's a beautiful mix of blue and purple. The exact right colour for the name, I think. But when you actually apply it to the nails it just looks like a navy blue colour. I can't really see any of the purple. It's a rare thing for Barry M to look different in the bottle to what you get on your nails.
As with all Barry M Nail Paints the consistency is lovely. It's thick, but without being too gloopy. As always the colour pay off is second to none. The brush is easy to use with very little mistakes.
The one downside that I can see with these nail polishes is the fact that they do chip quite easily. I put applied mine on Friday evening and worked on Saturday followed by going to see Jimmy Carr live and when I returned home my nails were slightly chipped around the edges, but for just under £3 you can't expect everything, can you? Barry M are still one of my favourite brands for nail varnish and this colour is lovely.

Optimum Swiss Apple Over Night Skin Renewal Serum

When I saw that Superdrug were releasing this item I must admit that I didn't quite understand the significance of it. I just assumed it was another skin cream that would be just like the rest, big claims but no results. I then looked into it a little more after I noticed it was sold out in ever Superdrug that I went into. Apparently it contains a extract from a very rare Swiss apple named Uttwiler Spatlauber that can be found in serums priced £200+ for example Cellular lifting serum from Clark's botanicals, but it's a fraction of the price at just £9.99!
Here's what they say about it-
Swiss apple is then name given to the fruit of the extremely rare, and almost extinct Uttwiler Spatlauber tree which can be found in remote areas of Switzerland.

Swiss scientists were first attracted to the species after it was noted that the fruit refused to wither for weeks and even months after picking.

It was found that the apple contained regenerative stem cells which protected the fruit from decay much longer than observed in other fruit produce.

Further clinical research revealed that by slicing the apple, a layer of stem cells formed on the incision which could be harvested and grown in a liquid culture.

Their findings were published in the Journal of Applied Sciences and extensive clinical trials on a 1% solution commenced. The staggering results showed that Swiss apple stem cells can boost human cell production by 80%.

I find that the texture of this product is really nice and silky and you really don't need to use that much of it. I haven't noticed any difference in my skin yet obviously because I've only used it for one night. I look forward to doing a full on review :)

Home from mini break. Here's the pics

Helloooo all!
Today I arrived back home from my mini holiday in Skegness. It was rather nice, but the place we stayed was really uncomfortable. I love Skegness. It's by far my favourite seaside town. So this post is just going to be photos and a little chat about some of them. Most are items that I bought while there, but there are a couple of Hello Kitty ones in there too ;)

I got this top from Yours Clothing. I've only ever been in one other Yours Clothing store before, but I have ordered from them before online. I have noticed that you really need to order a size above what you actually are otherwise I find them to be too tight. It was nice to get the chance to try this on before I bought. It was £14 and well worth the money. The fabric is lovely and it hangs great. I love the little frill around the bottom hem.

I saw this in Superdrug. It's the new Max Factor Xperience Weightless Foundation with SPF10. It was £12.99 and I got it in the shade Light Ivory. I was so happy to see the world 'light' in front of ivory because most foundations even in the lightest shade are far too dark for me, but thankfully this one is perfect! It gives lovely coverage and it really is weightless! New favourite of mine.

I got this Jemma Kidd Make Up School lipgloss FREE with a box of Bodyform. They were on offer at 2 for £2! So I got two of these lipgosses for two quid. Bargain or what? I love the look of this lipgloss on the lips. It's a tiny bit sticky but not too much. Adoreeeee it.

This is the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer. It's only £3.99 and I'm really impressed. I got it in the shade 'fair' and it is perfect for my skintone, but some people have commented that it's too light for them. I love the coverage of this concealer and it really does last for ages. The best concealer that I've tried in ages and a bargain price!

I saw this on a stall in Ingoldmels and thought I'd get it because it was so cheap. It was only £5. I haven't tried it yet so really can't comment on it just yet.

Here we have another Benefit rip off! This time it's by W7 and it's called Africa. As you can see the blush itself is a beautiful leopard print design. It's a really nice touch. I got this from Ingoldmels market for £2.99!

These are a few Hello Kitty items that I got including mints, lipgoss and phone charms.

CHOCOCAT MIRROR! I knew I'd probably get some Hello Kitty items from Skegness, but I didn't expect to get some other Sanrio characters. So I got uber excited when I saw this!

So those are my photos. Hope you enjoyed!
