October most wanted!

October 23, 2013




I’m starting to be very careful with my money now. That seasonal-time-of-the-year-you-shouldn’t-mention-in-October is coming, I have a wedding to go to, a visit to Holland next month, I’ve just spent £300 on Wacken tickets, and I have more than enough make-up and shiny treats to justify having to buy more. BUT. It doesn’t hurt to look and dream, right?


Geek Chic Cosmetics Witchcraft and Wizardry Set


Geek chic witchcraft and wizardry


L-R House Elf, Always, Mischief Managed, Golden Trio, Headmaster, You know Who.

Look at those colours. LOOK AT THEM. I’m having delirious day-dreams about pairing Mischief Managed and You Know Who into a dramatic stage look right now, and I fear it is one of those things that will continue until I get my hands on these gorgeous shades!

Geek Chic Cosmetics are a company that have been on my radar for a really long time, yet I still haven’t got round to actually ordering from them. This needs to be rectified! I mean really, combining gorgeous pigment eyeshadows with tongue in cheek geek culture is right up my street. I need this in my life.

Available from Geek Chic Cosmetics for $28.75


Body Shop Honeymania Range



Amie picked up a few pieces from this range (and blogged about it here) and has been singing praises ever since! I’m very very tempted, especially by the scrub and body butter. The Body Shop have amazing discounts online all the time, so maybe I can be tempted in the next 50% off sale. By maybe I mean definitly.

Available from £2 to £13 from The Body Shop


Soap and Glory Yule Monty



Oh yes, all the best Soap & Glory shinies in a fabulous cosmetics case. I’m only a recent convert to the ways of S&G but now I want it all. Even at £60 for this set you’re still getting a bargain considering how many products are included. My plan will be to wait till after Christmas when Boots slash all the prices on their gift sets making a massive saving on the RRP of the individual items.

Can I wait till January for all the lovely things? Hrrrrrm.

Available from Boots for £60.


Katy Perry Killer Queen ETP


Katy Perry, hardly the epitome of extreme metal but she exudes at least a touch of rock chick cool so I don’t think I loose too many krieg points for being a bit of a fan.

I’ve gotten through two testers for this (One from the Sept/Oct Miss Glossybox, the other from the October Glossybox) and am absolutely in love with it.

£30 for 100ml from Superdrug.


 Manowar Magic Circle Festival Tickets


Of all the things I love in this world Manowar rank pretty close to the top. They’ve just announced a Magic Circle Festival in Finland for next summer and I’m just chomping at the bit to find a way to go.

I’ve always wanted to go to Finland so this to me seems the perfect excuse!

Tickets go on sale for 75 Euros on November 4th. More details here.


 Totally not hellbent for being frugal this time of year. Harumph!

    I wish we had Boots in the US! I heard they do a super cool advent calendar with little beauty samples from their brands in it??

      They do! Quite a few brands are doing them this year, the Benefit and Ciate advent calendars look amazing, but the Boots one has a really good mix of a lot of awesome brands.
