Teeth and Dreams

I know that the title of this post seem totally stupid, but I believe the two are related. I was gonna do this deep and meaningful (yeah right!) post today about friends (actual, not the tv show!) but I’m not feeling too great today and this is where the title comes in.

I hate my teeth, this is a fact! They have cause me nothing but problems, ever since I had to have a brace fitted, because 6 of my adult teeth are missing. Where they are, are do not know, if you have them, I hate you!  The brace went fine, but then I had to move dentist, because mine was an NHS one and it shut down. So I moved to a new dentist and let’s just say, I think they butchered my teeth. I was move through 3 dentist there, was told I needed fillings, and I swear to God, they kept changing there mind about where the fillings needed to be and how many! It was basically ridiculous and because this wasn’t an NHS dentist, because they are like gold dust, so I had to pay for the privilege (£75 if I remember correctly!). Anyway, after all that, I still have rubbish teeth and they are basically letting a baby tooth rot into my gum, because they won’t take it out and are more concerned about what I’m going to do when it eventually does full out (my pov is you can’t even see that part of my mouth when I smile or talk, so it’s just gonna be a gap!).

Anywhoo, this leads me to last night.  I had a bad had last night when I went to bed and I think this lead to me having a strange dream. This dream was basically like Broadchurch on Steroids! It was a violent Broadchurch. But while this was going on, my head, at the back of my neck, felt really heavy. But just after talking to my Dad, this might be because I went to the hairdressers yesterday and was leaning back in one of those sinks, which isn’t how I usually wash my hair and I remember at the time, it didn’t feel to comfortable. But my jaw and teeth are so aching this morning. I don’t know if it’s maybe wisdom teeth or what, but basically, my teeth suck and I blame to dentist.

Obviously, they are not solely to blame, but I don’t drink teeth, coffee or alcohol. I don’t smoke. I rarely drink fizzy drinks. Don’t eat too many sweets or chocolate. I am like your average person with biscuits and cakes. I do admit to having a slight addiction to apples and pure fruit juices, which I know are not the best for teeth. And I can’t control my own genetics, which I would say are also to blame too. My top teeth are lovely though and thankfully, my bottom teeth are quite deep set, so you can’t even see them when I smile, which is great. It’s funny for someone to have a body issue with their teeth, but there you go, I’m abnormally not average.

Sale on and I need nothing!

There is a mahoossive sale on at Model’s Own, with 50% off everything! This is quite frankly insane, because you could spend £50 and only pay £25. I don’t know if it’s lucky or not, but I actually do not need or want anything at the moment! I have spent quite a bit online this month and I know there are a few things I want next month, like the new Lauren Conrad Beauty book and also the OPI Skyfall collection, which is out now, but I can’t afford to pay full price for OPI and I’m lucky that I so far have never had to. I would highly recommend that you check the Model’s Own sale out though, because they have some great shades.

I still haven’t managed to get to town to get the dress I want in New Look, thanks to the fricking weather! I’ve literally checked the site every day and it’s not on there yet, so I’m hoping they take longer to get to the website than they do to the store. But luck would have it, it’s actually sunny right now! Can you believe it, I think I’m gonna go blind!

Just a small update, hopefully have some more interesting ones soon!

Beauty Haul September

So, here is my promised Beauty Haul, I do apologies in advance for the state of one of the pictures. I suffer from shaky camera syndrome, I have a real inability to keep a camera straight and focused!

Anywhoo, let’s start with the polishes. These are actually what I have purchased in the last week, I usually spread it out across the month. First off, the Revlon Nail Enamel in 441 Radiant. I actually picked this up for two reasons. I had spotted it in an advert in Company magazine and I really liked the shade. Also, my favourite ever nail polish is Gone Gonzo by OPI and it’s not easy to pick up now, being limited edition, I would think. This is not only cheaper, only .3ml smaller, but it is near on a dupe and hopefully be more readily available. I would say the only real difference is little green glitters as well as silver, but I’m so glad I picked it up. Next are a trio of Models Own. I really love this brand and these new ones I picked up are lovely. Blooboo, is a pale blue colour. This is very similar to Barry M Blue Moon, just a bit darker. But I have a load of trouble with the Barry M one and this seems a lovely formula. Boogie Nights, is from the New Mirrorball collection. You can pick up all 5 and a base/top coat for £20, but I don’t think I’ll use them readily, so I went with purple (obviously). I got the impression from the add that these might have a great coverage, which would have been amazing. I would say they are more a special topper, but there is a nice selection of glitter and not heavy on the clear varnish. Finally, Thunder and Lightening, is shade I just happen to spot, but I’m glad I got it. It’s almost jelly in consistency and won’t cover fully in three, but I think it’s so cosmic and would look amazing in one coat over black. I’m so glad I picked it.

Next up are some eyeshadows. I would estimate that over 75% of the eyeshadows I own are brown, it is just my favourite tone. I picked up the MUA Heaven and Earth Palette, having heard about it on so many blogs. It’s suppose to be their equivalent of the Naked palette and it has some truely lovely colours in and not a bad quality applicator. I wish the shadows had names, but never mind. I also picked up a Natural Collection Eyeshadow Duo in Mocha/Latte. I like the smoky eye look, but a lot of my shadows are very metallic based, so I wanted something a bit more flat. These compliment each other beautifully and easy to pick it up in a rush to get ready for work.

Finally, I have wanted a brown liner for a while, as my black one is too intense for work. I first picked up Miss Sporty Kohl Kajai Eye Pencil in 018 Savage. I wasn’t too impressed with this, as the pay off on the water line was minimal, especially when your eyes start to water, but even without that, the colour payoff was poor. I had that with another Miss Sporty liner too. but I have found this looks nice lining the lid and eyelash line on my lower lid, then blending it. So at least it gets some use. I then picked up the Models Own Kohl Eyeliner Pencil in Chestnut. I’d not heard much on their make-up until I got a free black liner, when I bought my first nail polish from their site. It is now my go too as the colour payoff is great and it has a great smudging end and pencil sharpener. The chestnut one is just as good and I can actually tell I’m wearing it, unlike the Miss Sporty one, but it’s not too harsh for work. Finally, this was a repurchase, I got the Miss Sport Fabulous Lash Mascara in Black. I has gone through at least 4 of these, it is just the most perfect mascara. I couldn’t recommend it more.

That’s it, hope you enjoyed the post! I’m now spent (up!).
