Beauty | Last Minute Budget Hallowe'en - Paint It Black

I ADORE Hallowe'en, it's one of my favourite times of the year - I love all the pumpkins and skulls in stores, it's a back clothes lovers heaven and I'd usually go all out when it comes to dressing up.

Sadly this year I have to work on Hallowe'en night until 10.30pm so I'll be doing a mad dash home and super speedy costume change before heading to my besties house for a party.
 
As such, I've pulled together a list of Hallowe'en beauty bargains to help build the perfect last minute party look that you could pick up in your local Superdrug or Boots and create a great vampy look.

Lucky Dip Club | October 2015

Y'know when you completely lose track of what day it is?  Yea, that's where I'm at right now.

It's almost the end of October and that means my new LUCKY DIP CLUB subscription box arrived today! 

I'm still trying to find the new "thing" for me.  Beauty boxes have left me a little underwhelmed and last month I tested out both the LUCKY DIP CLUB and THE MELT CROWD subscription boxes and enjoyed both - you can check out my thoughts here and here.

The theme of the October LUCKY DIP CLUB box is one that really made me smile.  As soon as I opened the box I just HAD to snap a few photos to share with you all so please forgive the terrible lighting but....

.....BISCUITS!!!

Food | Acton & Sons, Belfast Launch

FOODIE FRIDAY: ACTON & SONS, BELFAST LAUNCH Eyelinerflicks

Last night I popped along to the launch of Acton & Sons restaurant - Situated on Brunswick Street, in the heart of Belfast's Linen quarter.
 
Previously known as Olios - a restaurant I frequently visited in the past as it was ideal for pre-theatre or a tasty lunch while working in the City Centre and had the best scampi in town; the new Acton & Sons offers comfort food and all-day brasserie classics, served in the newly refurbished, stylish surroundings.

Prepping For Christmas | The Internet Gift Store

I love a good all-rounder.  Y'know, somewhere I can get a bit of everything in one place, I'm a lazy girl - I like to get all my bits and bobs in one big shop:

A department store, a supermarket and recently I also discovered The Internet Gift Store!

Initially when I discovered The Internet Gift store I was searching for a birthday gift for my sister-in-law and I was just astounded at the sheer range of their products.  I expected gift sets, wrapping paper etc but The Internet Gift Store actually stock items like bedding, kitchen gadgets and even fitness equipment.

To celebrate the launch of their new Christmas gifts The Internet Gift Store kindly let me chose a product from their new range and as much as I wanted to be cheeky and nab something for myself, I thought this would be a great opportunity to get started on my Christmas shopping.

That's right guys, I said the "C" word!

First on my list was my mother-in-law.  My other half's family do quite a low key Christmas, so token gifts are key here! 

She's a craft lover, keen gardener and high-end brand enthusiast.  So when I dropped eyes on the Orla Kiely secateurs* I just knew they would be perfect for her.

Recently I've found a gaping hole in my TV induced joy.  Since PLL has gone for it's break and GBBO with Paul's eyelashes have left my screen I've been searching for a replacement to fill the void.

Lush Haul

LUSH HAUL Eyelinerflicks Oct 2015

It's no secret that I love a LUSH bathtime treat, I've mentioned it many times already so this week when I was in the City at a training course for work, I made sure to take some time on my lunch break to have a quick trip into LUSH Belfast and pick up some treats.

The Melt Crowd | October 2015

As I mentioned previously, I've been hunting out some new subscription boxes recently, last week I received the Lucky Dip Club (post here) and this week The Melt Crowd October box by Flamingo Candles dropped onto my office desk.

I work in quite a small office and we do love it when the postie brings us packages so we all gathered around to see what was included in this months' box.

As this was my first ever Melt Crowd box, I received a free melt burner in my pack and it came well wrapped in a larger box - I had actually forgotten about this perk so I did get a little confused when it first arrived.
