What we're watching this month...


1) Once Upon A Time

This television series is perfect for people who aren't quite ready to let go of their childhood. It puts a little twist on all of the fairytales that we know and love making them realistic and believable. Series one starts with a curse on the fairytale characters and all of their hope rests on the 'saviour' to break the curse. The way that everything pieces together is so clever and it's genuinely interesting to watch because it has a bit of everything: love, friendship, humour, sadness... Everything you'd ever wish for... and fairies!


2) Say Anything

This film from 1989 is an absolute must watch! We are suckers for 80's chick flicks because they feel so much realer than some of the forced stuff thats out nowadays! The film is a typical storyline about a boy in love with a girl who he doesn't seem to be good enough for, but the character of Lloyd (played by John Cusack) is any girls dream boyfriend. With lines like "I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen", what's not to love?!





3) The Wrong Mans

This is a television series by the BBC starring James Corden and Mathew Baynton. Need we say more? JAMES. CORDEN. If that doesn't persuade you to watch it, nothing will.
It basically follows two ordinary guys who get mixed up in a load of crime and conspiracy. And it's really funny!




4) Pretty Little Liars

Okay, we're well aware that the majority of people reading this will probably already be watching or have already watched pretty little liars, but we just had to mention it in light of the final episode of the most recent series. For those of you who don't know, it's about these 4 friends who start receiving mysterious messages/bribes after their friend Allison dies. The 4 main female characters are pretty much goals and plus Tyler Blackburn is a total dream boat - it's worth watching for that fact alone! But in all seriousness, it's a completely gripping series and gets you really thinking about who the mysterious A must be!
 

5) Hart of Dixie 

Ok, so I know we probably shouldn't be telling the whole world this but we downloaded the patch that allows us to watch the US Netflix and my god it has changed our lives! This is definitely a great girly watch! It's based around a New York doctor who is forced to move to a little town in the middle of no where to be their new GP, but almost everyone hates her! We've just started watching this so can't give much away, but we're deffo excited to see all the stories that unravel! Oh and there's some great shirtless action from guys who are rather yummy ;D

6) Drop Dead Diva

This is also available on the US Netflix. Ever since this stopped airing in the UK we've been hanging in suspense as to what was happening to our favorite characters! This program is based around a beautiful & perhaps a bit dumb, model who dies and comes back in a different body, a smart lawyer! This program is full of juicy criminal trials, heartache, laughter and tears. If you haven't seen this before we would 100% recommend it! :D

We thought it would be a good idea to create some spring/summer outfits around one key piece. With summer just around the corner & people spending  the last pennies of their pennies on sun, sea & cocktails we thought that these ideas might help you save some money by transforming some key pieces from day to night! We hope you enjoy :)

BOOBS & BRAS

BOOBS & BRAS

Girls, I need this post to just vent! 


So, let's just get this out there.. I have big boobs.. or as other may say, big jugs, knockers, hooters, traffic stoppers, titties, melons, fun bags (need I go on?!) .. I'm not bragging or rubbing it in your face, I'm just stating a fact. However, with these bad boys comes many struggles! Ignoring the back pain, the struggle to get clothing to fit, the unwanted attention, the dooming fate that they'll be down by knees by the time I'm 40 comes the annoying fact that it's almost impossible to find a pretty bra that actually fits! 

Yes, there are many websites online that stock DD+ bras but I want to be able to walk into a shop and actually try on bra's! Today for example I went into town and was forced into M&S knowing this was the only place that stocked my size. Now, I'm not saying there is anything wrong with M&S but I will say, me and my mum had a cheeky game of 'Spot the young person' whilst we were in there! Ok, so maybe I'm being too harsh, I found some bra's in my size and I tried them on with great hope and optimism... Alas, it did not end well. All the pretty bra's only went up to DD whilst the bra's for fuller busts only had a select few sizes on the shop floor and none out back! The bra's I did manage to find didn't flatter my shape at all and weren't exactly the most attractive/sexy thing out there... And let's not even talk about the price tags that are attached to these boulder holders!

I know there are loads of lingerie companies online that stock loads of beautiful bra's, such as Bravissimo, Curvy Kate & Figleaves but I don't want the hassle of ordering bra's only to find they don't fit and then have to send them back! I'm at the end of my tether and just want to be able to go into a shop like all my friends and try on all the pretty bras.. ahem, Topshop.. 

I have come to terms with my fate. However, that doesn't mean I'm not raging about it & would like to reserve the right to moan about it! :'D 

As much as I would love to walk around with no bra on (pure bliss), unfortunately this is not an option. Any shop suggestions would be great as I'm suffering from ridiculous boob over spill at the moment and we all know how unattractive that is! 




Thank you for reading my long rant & I hope you all have a great weekend!
Abby :) <3

Lipstick brand: Rimmel

Lipstick brand: Rimmel

Hi guys, we haven't done a post about make up in a looooong time so I thought what better to do then share with you some of my favourite lipsticks from my favourite lipstick brand!

I am an absolute sucker for a Rimmel Lipstick especially if it's from the Kate Moss collection. To me, the colours are absolutely perfect, they seem to look good on anyone, they stay on all night when I wear them out to clubs and the consistency is really nice (not too matte that it makes your lips look like shrivelled raisins!) So if anyone asks me for a lipstick recommendation, it's always Rimmel!

Here are my top 4 from the Kate Moss collection...


1) #107 [Bottom Left]
This is my absolute favourite lipstick of all time. It is the only one that I have repurchased at least twice and it's the one that I immediately reach for when I'm not sure what to wear. 
The colour is called 'Wine' but it's more of a berry colour. It's quite dark in comparison to other reds but it's not vampy as such. It's perfect for like Autumnal weather or if you fancy a slight change from Red. 
I would definitely recommend this if you want something a little bit edgy because the colour is perfect for day or night wear!




2) #07 [Top Left]
This colour is the closest one in the collection to Honeylove/Velvet Teddy from Mac. It's not an exact dupe, but it's a gorgeous nude colour similar to the Mac ones.
The colour of this comes out a bit more creamy and less matte looking, but I think that's a good thing because it gives a nice sheen to the lips and makes them appear slightly more pouty and Kylie Jenner-esque.
I would recommend this if you're looking for an ideal nude lipstick for everyday wear but don't want to pay Mac prices!




3) #22 [Top Right]
This one looks really pink in this picture but it's actually quite Red with a pink undertone. I think it's a really nice alternative to deep Red because it's more, kind of, Springy. 
I use this one quite a lot when I go out in the evening because I think it goes really nice with an LBD or a winged eye-liner/ bold lip combo!
I would recommend this if you want a new Red lipstick that's slightly brighter for spring!





4) #110 [Bottom Right]
This is more of a pink colour. It's pretty much the only lipstick I have in this colour because I'm not really fan of pink lips (partly because I'm not brave enough and I don't think I'd be able to pull it off), but this colour is absolutely gorgeous. 
It gives that slight pop of colour that is ideal for Spring/Summer months without being overly bright, bright like baby pink. 
I would recommend this if you, like me, are a bit scared of trying bright pink lipsticks but are brave enough to branch out a little bit!






And that's the top 4 Rimmel Kate Moss lasting finish lipstick recommendations (gosh that was a bit of a tongue twister).

We'd love to hear your lipstick recommendations or what you think of the Kate Moss collection.
