Faux Chanel No5 Perfume Bottle Phone Case!

It's become part of my Saturday ritual now, walking along Manchester's Market Street negotiating a circled crowd of people looking on as a teenager either beatboxes, sings, plays guitar, juggles a football or does all at the same time whilst I'm trying to get to where I want to go. Lately though, I've noticed a bit of an influx all over the city centre of pop-up stalls selling all manner of phone cases ranging from cheap and tacky £1 cases through to expensive and tacky £20 cases. It just proves that trends are truly cyclical, I remember in my teens the big buzz was all about Nokia 3210 fascias!

OUTFITS // The Eye of Horus... And Friends

It's quite rare that I'll be wandering my way down the high street and come across an item of clothing that screams at me: 'online'. I've wrote about this quite a lot recently, but the high street retailers have developed this habit of sticking to 'safe' items, meaning their ranges are often quite inoffensive and generally just bland.

My First Encounter with Makeup Revolution!

I honestly can't remember the last time I was this excited about a Make Up Launch. Even when Illamasqua come out with a new range, there'll be one or two things I'm eager to try, but the rest will be a bit 'meh'. It does seem at the moment we're being hit by wave after wave of neutrals. For me, neutrals are a bit like a dial-tone. You pick up the phone and hear the dial-tone, it's nothing to get excited about but it's always there. And seeeing as most new product lines are packed full of these inoffensive neutrals, I rarely get too flustered about their release.

Illamasqua's Pivot Eyeshadow

Illamasqua never disappoint, do they? 

I've been on the prowl for a lime green eyeshadow for a long, long time and let me tell you, they aren't easy to come by at all. A cursory glance in the likes of Boots and Superdrug always leaves me underwhelmed, hit by wave upon wave of dull, neutral shades. Don't get me wrong, they all serve a purpose but we all need a bit of neon every now and then, right?!
