Snow day!

It's snowed a good 10cm overnight here. Luckily I have a day off today, unfortunately I was planning on going shopping. I think my money spending day has been snowed off! I don't trust my driving at the best of times, let alone in a blizzard.

So here is a wintery NOTD with a mixture of two new polishes

Bottom coat is Mavala in 'Elle' - a solid grey with dark purple tones. Whilst the top coat is OPI 'Sparkle-icious' from the Burlesque range - a clear polish with big glitter particles in gold, blue and pink/purple.

Elle is a great wintery colour - not much to a say other than that. But Sparkle-licious is fabbbb! I just wish the glitter was a bit more densely packed, it's not really a colour you can wear alone. Looking forward to trying it over other colours though!

Is it weird that I'm taking pictures next to the toilet?

Top: Miss Selfridge
Trousers: True Religion
Scarf: H&M
Shoes: soyoushoes.co.uk

Anyway two slightly different outfit. The first one is want I was planning on wearing today, I just took my Grandma out for lunch for her birthday. But at the last minute I just changed my top as I thought I was perhaps looking too 'beige', although I actually prefer this outfit now I've seen them both.

Top: Topshop
Rest of outfit: As before

Excuse the lighting in this picture, it was taken after I'd been out so the light is turning a bit rubbish!

Must just say I am a massive fan of H&M scarfs, this particular one is an amazing colour match to my trousers and is a fab dupe of Louis Vuitton's scarf this season. I must just add that I'm not usually a lover of designer clothes 'fakes', least of all Louis, but I actually went and stroked the real LV scarf the other day and lets just say that it is definitely not worth near on £500! (obviously if anyone wants to give me one for free then go on ahead!)

Mamma Mia!

You may or may not have heard about Mama Mio. I believe its a relatively new brand, mainly aimed at mums-to-be. I am not a mother nor am I a mother-to-be. But I reckon I found a little gem in the brand!

I was introduced to the brand just under a year ago. Whilst I was minding my own business, having a facial, my beautician commented on how scarred my cheeks were, (yeah, cheers for that love). Anyhoo, I agreed, years of being a serial spot picker had taken its toll on my rather delicate face. She recommended the See-no-Scar solution from the Mama Mia range. I'd never heard of the brand but I must have been feeling frivolous that day because I got it. I remember really liking it but being so annoyed when I ran out 2 weeks later that I never re-purchased it.

Fast forward to now. I decided to have a overhaul of my skin regime and remember my brief love for the stuff. So decided to buy it again. £24.50 later I am in love again.

Now I know £24.50 doesn't seem like a massive spend, but you actually only get 30mls. The bottle is sneakily larger than its contents.....but I digress, down the the nitty-gritty

The Claim

"See-No-Scar Solution will help magic away the reminders of any serious or surgical scars"

The Reality

I'm using it on acne scars, which I don't think I can claim are 'serious', but they are obvious when I'm make-up free. My skin has always been rubbish but I just kind of thought that as long as I had a decent foundation my skin underneath didn't really matter. I've been using the soultion for around 2 weeks now and I can 100% see an improvement. The scar have become a lot less noticable and my skin just looks 'plumper' and smoother.

The only one negative I have about it, is the fact that it does make my skin look extremely shiny after application. I guess it's not actually marketed as a face cream, and so on any other part of the body it wouldn't matter if it gave you any extra sheen. Because of this I tend to use it all over at night and then just on my cheeks during the day, which are the most scarred areas of my face, and don't tend to get shiny (that said, I still use a good matte primer)

I would easliy recommend See-no-Scar soultion, and it's becoming more readily avaliable (in fact, I'm sure I saw it in Debenhams the other day)

Excuse the fact that this is taken in my bathroom, it's the best light I could find that morning!
Wore this outfit for a little shopping expedition, which was not very fruitful.

Fur (fake) gilet: New Look
Checked shirt: H&M
Leggings & boots: River Island

The plan was to wear my hair down, unfortunately my hair is quite a similar colour my my fur gilet (I'm not sure this is a good thing at all) and as someone kindly pointed out when I wore this with my hair down before, it does, in fact, look like an extension of my own locks. Brown gilet may need to be purchased.....
