I share my favourite thing this week - Audio books

A few months ago I signed up to audible , a website offering audio books that you have to purchase , but every month you get two credits to purchase audio books , I think all of the audio book are worth one credit .
Yesterday I was given my monthly credits and I got a little but excited because i had food poisoning the night before and was still feeling crap , I still feel pretty ill but I'm better :) 
anyways , the free credits where a nice pick me up , here's the audio books I have so far, I have included  the links to the books on the audible website , in case your interested .
Audio books are great for when I travel back and forth to Birmingham , or wherever saves allot of space in my bag .


Do you love audio books ?

I share my favourite thing this week ( and last weeks) - Dark gothic nails and great british bake off

I am obsessed with the new nail trend for a/w . Gothic dark nails where all over the cat walks this season , and I'm loving it .
Especially this one from No7 its a very dark blue it  looks black in some lights and it has little blue glitters in it which is totally gorgeous . whats your favourite goth nail colour?
Theirs two favourites this week because I was a lazy bum and did t do one last week (tut tut )
Last weeks was the great British bake off .

The great British bake off is a TV series where the competitor's compete in various stages to eventually the best British baker , and other anazing prizes such .Super exciting and really interesting even if you don't like baking , plus its pretty funny seeing the compete dropping cakes on the floor and just failing miserably at baking but most of the time they produce amazing things which makes  me want to get in the kitchen and bake bake bake bake bake !! 

more pictures coming soon !

I do a review - No7 Beautifully Matte Make Up Base

I know I had nothing but good things to say about this product when i mentioned it in my weekly favourites but Ive been using it allot more and  found out allot more about it and what it does for my skin etc.
Firstly the packaging is nice and simple but still looks a little special.
The first swatch of the product produced a white cream based product with a beautiful iridescent shimmer , which one applied you don't notice but does brighten up my complexion .
Application is a bit of a faff it dries super super quick on the skin so quick you barely get a chance for you to apply it to other area of your face , it pulls ab it on my skin which was unexpected .
It does have a nice scent  not strong, but strong enough for you you notice , but after Ive applied the rest of my makeup i didn't notice it , its a clean and fresh scent.
I use this after my moisturiser to go underneath my face makeup , this does minimise my pores , and gives a semi matte and smooth flawless appearance .

I love the over all finish this gives to my skin , making it smooth to the touch also , but i did have to perfect the amount applied , too much made my face oily , round my t-zone , also can leave a white  patchy residue on my face , looks a bit like I rubbed tooth paste on my face , not the look I'm after . 
Too little product and its really hard to apply .

So i found the best way to apply this was in two stages , first apply a small amount to my finger tips warmed up up a by rubbing my fingers together and in a stippling motion apply it to my nose and cheek . The secondly applying the same amount onto my forehead etc  in the same stippling motion ensuring all product of invisible. when applied and set , i didnt have any trouble with applying my foundation ontop .
Overall a good product that does what it says on the label , but a little tricky to apply 

what makeup base/primer do you use ?

I paint my nails-NOTD - metal mani - metal caviar

This manicure was slightly by accident I was intending to make it look like my nails where studded , by placing the beads in rows buuuut this happened instead , i call it 'oh my god these beads are so facking fiddly so I'm just going to squidg them on instead manicure :P '
I do really like the outcome but not for day to day may for a night out etc
the beads where purchased HERE for £2.99 + PP you get silver ones also .
The colour i used was the Nails Inc polish in Tate , finished with the Hally Hansen hard as nails clear top coat .

Will you be trying to metal manicure this season ?
