Airport Shopping at Heathrow!

Yay I’m back in KL after THE most relaxing flight ever due to having an entire row (and pretty much the whole plane) to myself! I arrived at Heathrow airport with ample time to spare before my flight, so I decided to do a bit of shopping.

First I stopped by at Boots to see they had tons of sales and package deals for their cosmetics so of course I dove right in! After much consideration I decided to get a Max Factor Lipfinity 24 Hour Lip Colour and the Colour Elixir Lip Liner in a matching shade!

Lipfinity comes in a set that includes the actual lip colour, in a shade called Spiritual (this pleases me), and a suuuper buttery balm that seals in moisture as the colour is a matte, which is known to be pretty drying. The liquid lip colour smells delish and true to its name, stays on all day and night until I take it off! There are still traces of the original swatch I took from the tester product on my arm that I never bothered to actually remove with makeup remover, and it’s been like four days since I tried it! I’m pretty impressed!

These two combined came up to a total of $15.99, which made me eligible for a Bright Eyed Glamour box set worth $33! Inside were 3 full sized (Not tester sized but FULL SIZED!) products: The Max Factor Eye Luminizer in Light/Medium, Colour Elixir Gloss in Glossy Toffee and the Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara in Waterproof black. ABSOLUTE JACKPOT YOU GUYS.

ALL these products are gonna get a ton of use from me, I haven’t tried the mascara or the gloss yet but I’m loving the Eye Luminizer! It’s a perfect match for my skin tone and makes my skin super silky and smooth, I don’t even have to use a primer anymore for my eye makeup! Completely in love with my purchases and winnings haha.

Next up I headed over to Victoria’s Secret, where a Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal was going on! Obviously I couldn’t miss this opportunity even though I have never shopped at VS all my life (I’m more of a LaSenza girl tbh). After checking out the selection of glosses, body sprays and various balms and lotions eligible for the sale, I decided to get two Warm & Cozy body mists and a Beauty Rush gloss in Mocktail Hour.

Why did I get two of the same thing? BECAUSE THESE MISTS SMELL GATDAM DELICIOUS. They smell like warm vanilla cookies and anything that smells like COOKIES I must have at least two! My Beauty Rush gloss was more of a “oml that’s so pretty” kinda purchase, because who doesn’t want sparkly lip gloss with a metallic lip keychain attached?! I haven’t actually tried or even opened the gloss yet, and to be completely honest it’s probably gonna end up one of those items I just keep in my bag because it’s cute and glittery and not much else (a lot like the stacking Sephora lip glosses Marie “lent” me literally a year ago ewps), but I regret absolutely nothing.

So there’s my mini beauty haul from Heathrow Airport! I’m actually looking forward to going back there to see what other deals are on!

Lonely Magpie Haul!

Hi everyone!  I can’t believe how quickly my time in KL has flown and just tomorrow I’ll be heading back to London! On one hand I’m looking forward to seeing my boyfriend again, but on the other hand I’m really gonna be missing the warmth and familiarity of this place. Anyways!

Today I’m reviewing one of my favourite jewelry stores Lonely Magpie. They specialize in gorgeous whimsical creations like the ones I’ll be showing you in a minute! I have plenty of their charm chokers, but they do have some other items as well such as necklaces, rings and anklets. I’m gonna be talking about their chokers because within the first month of discovering Lonely Magpie I already have like… Idk at least 5 or 6 of their chokers hehe.

CYMERA_20151111_101128

The first one I bought from them is their Rose Quartz Arrowhead choker with an Ohm charm (£3.99). The charms are interchangeable and you can choose from a variety of cute knick knacks to accompany your pendant. I’m a huge sucker for rose quartz so I was particularly enamoured by this design!

CYMERA_20151111_101315

I also got Rose Quartz Heart choker and a pretty little crescent moon charm on an adjustable pink cord. Once again I chose from a selection of charms to put on my pink choker, and I was very happy with the variety they provided!

One thing I have to say though, while these chokers can withstand every day wear, they’re pretty delicate. For example the link on my Rose Quartz Arrowhead pendant has gotten caught on my clothes a couple of times and opened up, causing my pendant to fall off… Luckily I managed to save it every time and reattaching it to the cord isn’t too difficult since the metal used for the link is quite soft and malleable.

Pleased with my first order, I posted a few pictures on Instagram because I was told I could get a £5 voucher for my next order if they reposted my picture on their page, which to my surprise they did! You’re probably thinking £5 isn’t a lot, but with many of their chokers available for a Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal and most of them costing only between £2 and £4 you can actually do a lot with it! The moment I received my £5 discount code I pretty much immediately ordered another batch of chokers. Here they are!

I’m particularly pleased with these babies! The three charm chokers I purchased with the Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal and I have to say they’re absolutely adorable! Perfect little stocking stuffers, I got the Lotus one for myself and the Saturn and Moon & Star ones for Marie and Ruby. They’re all on adjustable cords. The Blue Goldstone pendant is especially beautiful, I love the little sparkles within the gem and they’re very reflective! It’s my current day to day choker, I love it to death!

CYMERA_20151117_123506What else do I have to say about Lonely Magpie… Like I said, they have a great selection and definitely something for everyone. I especially love the ethereal element they put into their collections as that is what drew me to their store in the first place! I can tell their products are made with love and they love their customers as well, offering every returning customer a 10% discount code that comes with their parcels. Their parcels themselves are very nicely packaged, sadly I don’t have any pictures but believe me when I say I’ll give them a A for presentation! Let’s not forget the Free UK Shipping, which is something I LIVE for since I moved to London! I’m definitely looking forward to shopping at Lonely Magpie again and I’m very happy they allowed me to publish this article on them because it’s an absolute honour to have such lovely content on my blog thanks to them!

  • Gorgeous selection of seriously chic attire. Such vogue, very style. I would wear the fuck out of ALL OF THEIR CLOTHING LET ME TELL U

Shop Emmin Review

So guise I’m gonna be posting reviews right away! Today I’ll be reviewing Shop Emmin, a delightful little store based in the UK for chic accessories and the like. They recently sent me some gorgeous faux septum rings which I absolutely just fell in love with! I’m not usually one for accessories myself but these babies are to die for! Oh, and did I mention they ship worldwide? Gotta love that international shipping!

I have such a serious need for like, ALL THOSE CASES lbr

If you click on the link I provided earlier you’ll be taken to their online store where you’ll find a variety of seriously trendy accessories, including the ever popular Dakota Marble Effect Phone Case… Another reason why I CRI because I don’t have an iPhone and probably never will because my Android-loyal boyfriend would disown me IMMEDIATELY. However I’m happy enough with my three gorgeous septum rings huehue. Their phone cases range between £4-£6 and if you ask me that’s a bargain! I will be eternally grateful when they start producing covers for the Samsung Galaxy, but for now I’ll just have to leave the cute cases for you Apple types.

Too cute! Pria septum ring in copper, and Zoa septum rings in gold and silver!

On to my super adorable faux septum rings that I mentioned earlier! Look how pretty they are! I’m actually surprised at how quality they are too, I’ve had them for a couple weeks now and they haven’t broken or chipped or anything! The copper Pria septum ring is embedded with several diamente rhinestones, which you would normally expect to fall off within like 0.3 seconds but they’ve been intact all this while. They’re pretty comfy to wear too! You can shop these gorgeous faux septum rings and many more designs at Shop Emmin, but you might want to act fast because they’re selling out so so quick and you honestly don’t want to miss out! In addition to iPhone cases and faux septum rings they also have makeup brushes, metallic temporary tattoos and a few more goodies that I’m gonna leave you guys to find out for yourselves.

The cherry on top? I have a special discount code for you (; Quote “cyberxkitten” at checkout to receive a special secret discount just for you! Hurry though, stocks are limited! Oh, and don’t forget to check out their Instagram where they are currently hosting a giveaway so you don’t even have to pay to get your hands on these lush items!
