We're all guilty of it; hoarding more products than we can possibly use at once. For some people, lipstick is their weakness, for others it's the latest urban decay palette (come on, don't deny it!) Although I myself am privy to the softest skin I can manage. So here are just some of my ever growing body butter collection and my current thoughts on them..



Today I have my make up storage system to share with you. Personally I'd like my make up to be more organised, but as you'll soon see I'm a bit of a neat freak. So this is the chest of draws where I keep all of my  make up products.The only draw not being utilised for face purposes being the draw on the top left which holds all my nail varnishes. Oh and the cupboard in the middle is where I store my perfume (guarded by my little friend bongo there).

As I'm sure you're very aware nude nails are what's hot this spring/summer. Although the idea of the trend is to paint your nails as close to  your own flesh colour as possible, I just don't feel that pale nails suit me (being so pale myself). Instead I prefer to paint my nails a slightly darker shade of brown often adding a metallic colour as an accent nail. So, here are my favourite "nude nail" colours for this season.

Excuse the poorly executed paint job here...although big smoke by Topshop shows up darker here than it really is, it's still my favourite shade. Paired with moonshine as an accent nail  it's easy to create a really subtle and classy look that not only goes with every outfit but is also right on trend for the season. A word of warning though, although lychee by Barry M is a beautiful colour, I don't feel that it wears for very long. Within hours of painting my nails I find myself having to repaint where certain nails have chipped. 

I love the Topshop nail polishes because not only is there a massive colour choice, but I find that they just don't chip! Have you got any favourite nude nail polishes for this season?



Finally I've accumulated enough empty products to justify my first empties post! I've really been looking forward to getting this post up because as I've finished all of these products, I'm able to give you my honest opinion on how I felt they worked. So without further adieu, here we go!
