Hello Kitty Bedding!

I've been umming and arrring about the latest Liberty Arts collab with Hello Kitty bedding sets. There's loads of Hello Kitty bedding out there that is only for single beds. Me being as old as I am, I have a double bed. So anyway, I totally needed a Hello Kitty bedspread. I found mine on eBay. They had five different styles which I struggled to pick one. But I picked this one!

The design is called Park Life. It's got so many great colours in it. I bought an under sheet and pillow cases to compliment the colours in it. My bedding before was just plain black or plain purple. This is such a difference!

It totally lightens up my room and it's just so cute! I feel like I want to buy all the other designs so I can have Hello Kitty on my bed all the time. The quality is just brilliant and it's so cosy. There's so many Hello Kittys on my bed right now!

Some close up shots of the design. The first pic, the bottom pattern is what's on the underside of the duvet, I guess you could use it that way too if you wanted. And the second pic is a bit of a close up at the design. It's all about being at the park so there's trees and a fountain and Hello Kitty and loads of her friends!

I'm thinking about buying another one next pay day just so I can have Hello Kitty on my bed forever! So look forward to another post on Hello Kitty bedding when I buy them all!

SheInside Review

So having heard a lot of good things about SheInside I decided to check if there was anything on their website that I wanted, and there was loads! In the end I struggled to decide on just two items. 

The items are an Orange Hooded Coat and a Wine Red Heart Print Blouse. I ordered them on the 24th of November and they arrived on the 11th of December so I guess around 15 days delivery. But the shipping was free so that's a bonus! Because I logged in with Facebook I got 20% off my order too, which was awesome!

One of the items went down in the sale a few days after I ordered, but before it was shipped. So I emailed them to query whether I could be refunded the difference because some places to that. Unfortunately they couldn't offer me that but they did give me a 20% off code for my next order, which was nice of them. :)

They came packaged in a standard grey postage bag. I don't have a picture of that because I was too excited and opened it straight away. Under the first layer, they were individually packaged in their own zip lock bags. The bags were labelled with the SheInside logo. Really shows they put an effort into their packaging which is nice!

The first item I opened up was the heart print blouse. The first thing I noticed was how nice the material felt. I always worry when buying online what the quality will be like but this was lovely.

It's so pretty! I ordered it in a small because I assume I would have been because I'm an 8-10 UK size but it was a little tight and short on the sleeves. If I wear it folded up it's fine.

It doesn't look so bad on and it fits quite nicely everywhere else. Maybe I'll try a size M next time just for a bit more room. The print is just gorgeous though and the colour is nice. I don't usually wear red but it's pretty cute!

I also bought a orange coat with a furry bear hood. I was looking for a new coat so I was so happy when I saw this one!

It was hard to get it to hang nice because it's so puffy and the hood is pretty thick. Again, this colour isn't something I'd usually wear but I just went for it. This coat comes in two pieces. The orange part is the main coat, but the furry inside with the hood attached is a gilet that attaches to the inside with buttons. It's pretty neat if it's not too warm one day, you can just take out the inner gilet.

Again, I look a mess but it's just to show what it's like on. Unfortunately with this one, it's a little short on the sleeves again, but still wearable. I guess I just like my sleeves loooong. So I'm definitely going to buy a size M when I order next time.

I think the hood is the best part of this coat. It has bear ears! It's just adorable. Definitely feels like it will be warm enough in the cold British winter.

I'm hoping I can get some more SheInside items soon, but in a better fitting size for me. They have such great fashions on their website, the pricing is great and the free shipping is a real bonus.

Review: MUA Cosmetics Love Hearts Polish

MUA Love Hearts Nail Varnish



I’ve been on a bit of a mad MUA hauling session recently. As I usually shop in boots, I never came across MUA Cosmetics because they’re only available in Superdrug. I heard about them from a few reviews that I came across on some beauty blogs and I just had to try them out. With their low prices and great quality, I just couldn’t help but buy everything!

I went down there today to get some eyelash glue, they didn’t have what I wanted (-.-) so I just ended up spending a few quid on MUA Cosmetics instead! Which isn’t a bad thing. They have a small ‘Love Hearts’ range which are a few nail polishes and some lip balm tubs. The nail polishes come in six colours and are all pastel shades. I chose the Yellow and one of the Purples. 

With one coat.

With two coats.

The packaging is so cute! They’re small bottles and with a capacity of only 6.8ml they’re one of the smallest polishes I own. That doesn’t bother me too much, though, because who really gets to the end of a nail polish before it goes funny? They have the Love Hearts logo across the bottle and a Love Hearts sticker on the top. Along with the pastel colours, they look quite nice!

The product itself, to me, just seems like any other nail polish, which is good! It goes on smoothly and the colour is great, very vibrant. Two coats seem to do the trick for an even coverage with full colour definition.  It dries relatively fast, too. No problems!

The only thing I’m having a slight issue with is the brush. It doesn’t appear to be shaped too well so it makes applying the polish a little difficult. Sometimes leaves streaks on the nails, but a second coat usually clears it up. I could have just bought a bad bottle, as only the yellow one has a frayed brush, though.

It may have just been a bad batch but this brush is a little frayed!
This brush isn't too bad, I haven't tried it properly yet, though.

  • Adorable packaging.
  • Great colour choices, I love pastel shades!
  • Product is great, very smooth and dries quite quickly!

  • My only issue is with the shape of the brush. It’s a shame, I hope they get this feedback and update their polishes!

Absolutely! There are 6 colours in the range and I plan on buying them all! Only 4 left to collect. :)
