Ariel & Flounder Tsum Tsum.




The Little Mermaid has always been my favourite Disney film, so with that in mind I went searching for my favourite characters in Tsum Tsum form. I actually managed to find a selection of Tsum Tsum that aren't yet available in the UK, my little guys have come over from Japan and are the cutest things. Picking these up from eBay has certainly made my inner child a little bit happier. Now to add more to my collection...

Have you got any Tsum Tsum?

Clarins Autumn 2015.


Autumn is easily my favourite season. I love it when the leaves start to change colour and the evenings start getting a little shorter. And what I love more is the change in make up and fashion -it's finally okay to wear those dark colours you've been dreaming of and whip your jumpers back out.

As always Clarins are spot on with their Autumnal range for 2015. I was kindly sent a few items from the up and coming range to have a play around with, and I wasn't disappointed. I've been desperate to try a few new looks with make up and the new Ombre Matte eyeshadows in Carbon and Heather, allow me to do just that. I adore purple eye shadows with my bluey/grey eyes so I can't wait to create a smokey eye look with these colours.

Alongside the shadows I also received the two new shades in the Kohl pencils. Carbon Black and True Violet go gorgeously with the eye shadows. Although I'm not a huge eye liner fan, I can see me having a lot of fun playing around with these.

Finally I received an eyebrow pencil, which I was super excited about. I've recently converted to using a pencil for my brows and I find you get more precision and this one in Light Brown couldn't have come at a better time. I love the brush on the other end, it really helps to shape my brows and ensure I have an even coverage.

Will you be picking anything up from the new Clarins Autumn range?

Book Review: The Accident Season.



The Accident Season* was the latest book I've finished, so I thought it was time for another book review. The story follows a single-parent family and their lives living with a month every year known as the 'accident season'. During this month the family experience strange goings on and 'accidents' occurring. Around Halloween each year, the family must try their hardest to stay safe and avoid anything that could cause harm to themselves or others.The plot is narrated by Cara, the main character and follows her throughout, interacting with her best friend, sister and her step-brother. 

The plot is really exciting and nothing like I've read before. I don't want to give too much away, but this will certainly have you on your toes.The story is dark and magical and gave me that 'I can't out it down feel'. If you're into Pretty Little Liars, I think you'll love this book as it carries the same mystery as PLL. This is a great read, especially if you're looking for something a little different from you're regular reads.
