I have read so many things about Kiko Cosmetics before, but have never really had the chance to try them out. As one of their stores has recently opened up near me, I thought it would be rude not to investigate. After swatching everything I could possibly fit onto my hands, I left with 2 sparkling Trail Eyeshadow pencils in 'Sensual Burgundy' and 'Power Blue'.

'Don't do anything I wouldn't do, you rascal!'
I have wanted to go to Forbidden Planet for absolutely ages and finally at the weekend this dream came true. I was in London getting my tattoo, when it suddenly dawned on me and Lewis that we may have enough time to go to Funko Pop heaven, so that is exactly what we did. There were way too many things to choose from and I could have easily spent a few more hours in there, but it was closing so we had to leave with the the goodies that we did have. I was a bit sad that they had no Disney Funko's in, but it was probably a blessing or I would have had no money at all.
I did manage to spot this little beauty though and snapped him up straightaway. I also picked up Grandpa Munster, so he wasn't lonely on the shelf but will show him off later. I remember watching The Munsters with my mum when I was little and really loving it. This Funko is seriously cute and so detailed. The bolts on his neck are just perfect!
I'm so glad I picked him up just in time for Halloween...yes I am thinking about Halloween already!

Following on from my love affair with this lipstick, I decided to try another Metallized shade from Urban Decay. Every time I walk past the counter, I fall in love with a new shade. This time it was Cruel's turn to be mine.

You may have noticed the brand Truffle Shuffle appear on nearly all of my monthly wishlists. If you love anything geeky or cute, you really need to check their website out. Whenever I have a little look, I find it so hard to only pick a couple of items, so decided to make a complete Truffle Shuffle wishlist.

I seem to go through colour phases when I paint my nails. Sometimes I go through every pink polish I own, then blue, then purple etc. I never mix them up, they seem to come in batches of colours. Once I get a colour in my head, I become obsessed with it! At the moment it's teal, so thought I would show you my current favourites.

I absolutely love Urban Decay's Moondust eyeshadows. They are seriously some of the sparkliest, dreamiest, prettiest, spangliest eyeshadows I have ever seen. I can't seem to walk past an Urban Decay counter without turning my hand into some sort of glittery glove. This time, it was the shade Stargazer that caught my eye.

I was so intrigued when this months Pop in a Box came through the door. The brown box was bigger than normal and I got super excited that there might be something different inside. I was right, inside was a selection of Nightmare Before Christmas Pocket Pops instead of one bigger pop!

OH MY...Can we all just take a moment to appreciate the Beauty and the Beast Tsum Tsum collection. As soon as the rumour mill started about this release, I knew I needed to have it. In fact, I knew I needed it so much, I sent my mum up to the shopping centre with my nieces to get there first. When I say sent, she did offer, I'm not that mean! ha.

I decided to touch up my hair over the weekend. When I say touch up, I reaaaaallllly wanted Lilac, but it just wouldn't happen, no matter how hard I tried. So I have just ended up with a brighter version of the hair I had before and 4 less hours of my life. I haven't given up on the lilac dream just yet though.
When I looked at my brighter hair in the mirror, I felt inspired to have a little play with my makeup...

Like anyone, I absolutely love a bargain. When I was browsing the Skinnydip website last week, I noticed that the Superhero bag I had featured in my February wishlist had been reduced from £32 to £10. Amazing!

Lets face it, I was never going to just leave with one Vice lipstick was I?! At the same time I picked up Big Bang, I decided on a more neutral shade and left with Rapture as well. That was after swatching each lipstick one by one of course.

I am an absolute sucker for a makeup bag, especially a cute one. Although, realistically I am just a sucker for anything cute in general, especially when animals are involved. I was recently contacted by a company called Catseye London and fell in love at first click.

I can't believe it's August already! Craaaaazy. Each month seems to be going past quicker than the last and before we know it, it will be Christmas. Sorry I shouldn't be mentioning that word yet ha! I really enjoyed making this wishlist and it seems to be the brightest selection of items yet!
