Alien Boobs

WHAT I'M WEARING - 
Top, BOOHOO
Shorts, BOOHOO
Hat, KILLSTAR
Boots, PRIMARK

Hey guys, back with another post after a short absence! I was so cold taking these photos but I wanted to get an outfit post on my new favorite feature, my alien boobs! I've had this crop top since last summer but I dug it out my wardrobe the other day. Obviously, It's too cold for me to wear it without a jumper because I'm a like cold blooded reptile.

I do love this Killstar hat! Got to admit, I get some strange looks when I wear this hat... I wonder why? 
I love wearing these sparkly shorts, adding some glam to my everyday look. I especially love the 'love' logo down the sides!

Have a lovely week everyone!

Lush Rockstar Soap Review


Another lovely present I received for my 21st birthday! I really didn't expect this one. I've spent years going into Lush for a quick nose around, admittedly, their amazing and wacky bath bombs always stole the limelight! However, when I did look around their soaps years ago, this adorably cute little pink star shaped soap stuck out to me above the rest! You can imagine my surprise when Rachel got me this for my Birthday along with a few other Lush goodies.

First of all, this soap is called Rock star! I know, absolutely perfect for a metal head like me! even my soap is rock n roll influenced. I'm pretty sure not many rock stars smell this good though; this soap is so sweet smelling. The most perfect balance of Vanilla, not too overwhelming at all and makes my bathroom smell incredible after my showers!
With coconut oil and rapeseed oil, I'm pretty certain my skin hasn't felt softer! I'v been using this soap daily for almost three weeks now and it's hardly changed in size. I know the moment I run out of my cute, pink little rock star I will undoubtedly be buying another!

What's your favourite Lush product?

A little belated Valentines post but never mind, this look is too gorgeous not to share! We both hope everyone had a fun Valentine's day. If you're not into all the lovey-dovey crap then this makeup is most definitely for you.
 So, if you read our Valentines makeup look you will notice that we used all the same makeup products as the last look. We regularly use both high end and drug store makeup so it's a nice mix of both.

The eyes are definitely the focal point of this whole entire look. Rachel created this by using our recently gifted Naked Smokey Palette - which is absolutely stunning for dark looks! So definitely right up our street as two goth girls. You can rock this look with either a dark lip for extra boldness or a nude lip for a more understated look.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Hey everyone, Valentines day is fast approaching and I'll use any excuse to do a themed make up look! This is my own twist on a romantic look. Rachel's anti-valentine day makeup look will be getting posted later this week so keep your eyes peeled for that!

I done my usual base routine, nothing too fancy but I always love using a lot of highlighter to get a lovely glow - desperately wanting to be a glowy unicorn is easy with my new found love, Barry M Liquid Chrome Drops. I just mix it in with my foundation and it looks gorgeous.

For my eyes, I used a blusher palatte to get a really pink, lovely romatic look. I love it! I used some reds and a purple in my crease from my UD Alice in Wonderland palette just to darken it up a little. I wont say too much on the mascara and eyeliner as we have in-depth reviews coming up on them!

To finish the look I used a classic, sexy red lip. I love this lipstick but it does seem to crack a little through out the day and wears off around the middle of my lip as the bottom photo shows -arghh! Still, absolutely gorgeous and is the perfect finishing touch.

What are you up to this Valentines?

Makeup We Got For Our 21st Birthday

It was our 21st birthday on the 7th! I still can't believe we're 21, I still feel like a baby. Anyway, we were really lucky to get some amazing makeup this year from our lovely mum and dad (thanks guys!)

So first up is the Kat Von D Basket Case Anti- Precision Pencil Eyeliner - I actually couldn't believe it when I opened this present... a Kat Von D eyeliner and not just any eyeliner, it's the basket case liner that she's only just released in collaboration with Billy Joe who is the lead singer of Green Day! I have always wanted a Kat Von D liner so I was so excited to try this out. As you can imagine, the pigment is super intense and it stays put all day. I won't go into too much detail as there will be a full review on this liner in a few days to come so stay tuned! I 100% recommend this amazing eyeliner to any eyeliner-aholic!

If you read our blog regularly you would know that me and leah are absolutely obsessed with Urban Decay so we were so excited to see that we got Urban Decay's All Nighter Waterproof Full-Coverage Concealer! We live for Urban Decay palettes and lipsticks but we have never tried any base products from UD so I was really interested to see if I loved it as much as their eyeshadows. This is full coverage which I love in a concealer and it applies so flawlessly. I just couldn't ask for more from this concealer, it's bae.

I was so shocked when I saw that we got Benefit's BADgal BANG Mascara! All I can say is wow. I saw so much hype around this mascara when it was released recently and I can honestly say myself that it's worth the hype! Stay tuned for a full review on this amazing mascara next week!

Me and Leah love a good highlight so I was so happy that mum had got us a highlighter. The one we got was Barry M Liquid Chrome Highlighter Drops. You only need a few drops and you're glowing like a mystical creature, we love it! Leah  got me Urban Decay 'vice' Metallised Lipstick in the shade 'Amulet'. It's such a pretty pink shimmering shade and I absolutely adore it.

To pretty up my nails I also got Rimmel Rita Ora 60 Seconds in 'Hot Metal Love' and a clear top and base coat. Hot Metal Love is such a beautiful colour that reminds me a space and galaxies. The 60 Seconds range will always be my go to for nail polishes.

WOW. I was so shook when I saw that we had got Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eye Shadow Palette! I can't even describe how amazing this palette is! I was so happy that we got a guide in the palette too to give us step by step instructions on how to create four perfect smoky eye looks. There will also be a single post dedicated to this palette really soon because come on, this palette deserves it's own post!

I'm in love with The Body Shop and was so happy that I got a two lip butters that smells delicious and helps hydrate my lips for hours. Both of the hand creams are amazing too and I raved about the TBS hand creams a few days ago in our January Favourites post!
That brings us to the end of this post and I just want to thank my mum and dad again for making us have the best 21 birthday ever. I actually think it was my best ever birthday because it was just a day of relaxing, having fun, drinking wine and eating our amazing unicorn cake! Also thanks to our big sister Caz and Eve for making our day amazing too. Thanks for the presents guys!

What do you guys think of our birthday makeup for our 21st?
Love Rachel x

Our 21st Today! | 21 Things We've Learnt


As I'm writing this post, I'm sitting here with the biggest chunk of cake - not just any cake, an incredibly, stunning hand made unicorn cake! With a cup of tea of course because it's our 21st! Yep, we are officially big girls. So I thought I'd write one of those reflecting-back-on-life posts because let's face it, that's what we all do on birthdays. Another year older and hopefully a lot wiser.

1. Not Everyone is Horrible - I've met shitty people, we've both dated shitty people but guess what? Not everyone is the same. Not everyone is this world is malicious but unfortunately, some are. Trust people when they've earned it. Keep faith that some people are kind.

2. Take Up New Opportunities! - Speaks for it's self! get all the experience you can get!

3. Don't Like Something? Give It Up! - Including jobs, people or something else. Don't be miserable. There is always something out there.

4. Live Life To The Fullest - This is in connection to number 3, do things that make you happy!

5. Love Yourself - Because you deserve it!

6. Put Yourself First - This is important. Take care of others but don't forget about yourself either. 

7. Never Give Up Hope - I've felt lost so many times but the best thing you can do is get back on your feet and be positive. Harder said than done.

8. Be Yourself -  We fully embrace our alternative style and we've never felt better within ourselves or style! 

9. Art & Music is Our Passion - No matter what, we always draw & make music and it makes us feel at peace. Art is such a creative thing and never fails to cheer us up or inspire us. 

10. Health is so important! Having the flu taught me this, especially in this last year.

11. Having a Blog Makes Us Happy - We love our little space in the internet - the ultimate escape from the real world!

12. High End Make Up Is Worth It! Urban Decay makes me the happiest girl ever and also makes me feel like the ultimate badass makeup queen. Definitely worth spending my money on! 

13. Metal Music is Superior. 

14. Red Wine is Surprisingly Amazing! - Having never tried it before, I found out a week ago that I love the red stuff! 

15. My Family is Everything - I don't know what I'd do without them!

16. Heartbreak Gets Easier - I thought my heart would be broken forever but with time, it's healed. 

17. Bad Relationships Aren't Worth It - Cut those toxic negative people out of your life. All they do is hurt you over and over again.

18. Travelling Is The Best Thing You Can Do - Spending our money on experiences is so important to us.

19. Bubble Baths Are The Best - There is nothing better than getting a bath and putting on cosy pyjamas afterwards!

20. Time goes so fast - Make the most of it! 

21. I couldn't do this life without my twin sister - I love you so much Rach! 

There you have it! What have you learnt this past year?

Spider Girl

What I'm Wearing:
VELVET HOODIE - H&M
LEGGINGS - BOOHOO
BOOTS - MISSGUIDED

Hey everyone, hope everyone is enjoying the first few days of February! I'm so glad January is over as I was so so sick but now I'm feeling much better and just in time for my birthday on the 7th, yay! 

This outfit was just something I wanted to throw on as I'm still recovering from the flu. I also love outfits that look stylish but are so comfortable and easy to throw on. I always grab my velvet hoodie from H&M when I want to put something warm on. I absolutely love velvet, it's my favourite material in the whole entire world and I'd wear it every single day if I could. As an alternative gal, I wanted to add some 'weird' to my outfit so I wore my spider web leggings from the Boohoo Halloween collection because after all, everyday is Halloween to me! These leggings are really soft material and they're just so comfy to wear! I'm wearing my all time favourite boots too that I got for Christmas! They're suede and lace up all the way up past the knee which I love. I think I'll have these boots for ages because they're so well made plus I'm in love with them! This is one of my favourite outfits to just throw on for a casual day and to be warm and stylish too! 

Would you wear these spider web leggings?
