Tattly Temporary Tattoos


I am one of those irritating people that always talks about getting a tattoo, but then never does. I guess its probably for the best, considering how ridiculously fickle I am. But late one night, I came across Tattly - an adorable (and irresistibly affordable) temporary tattoo brand. Now these are not your regular child-like temporaries - these are tattoos that are not only beautifully illustrated but totally genuine looking too. I've always wanted to have "BE FRASSY" inked onto my knuckles - and so I couldn't resist buying these. They were super easy to apply (completely mess-free and not at all difficult) and lasted for about 36 hours. Every purchase comes with two of each design- and at $5 USA Dollars a set- its pretty hard to resist a purchase- even if its just for the shock value - tricking your friends into believing you (finally) got that tattoo is way too much fun!

My Beauty Essentials

Photobucket I'm pretty frugal (and rather dull) when it comes to my everyday beauty routine. I prefer to spend my extra cash on clothes (and dinners out) - so my daily products are simple, reasonable and super effective. The best attribute of my four essentials is that they are so easy to apply - in that a little bit of product goes a long way, meaning that they last for a very long time. Even the OPI nail polish takes one coat (which is pretty incredible, as we all know how tricky the colour white can be for nails) - and I've only bought three bottles in the last year. To me, spending 16 pounds on a bottle of nail paint seems rather extortionate - but it is totally justifiable considering how long-lasting it is.  And as for Sephora- they are by far, my favourite beauty products - purely because they are high-quality but low-priced.  I've been using their foundations and mascaras since I was about 16- and while old habits certainly die hard- I'll probably always stay loyal to the monarchy that is Sephora Cosmetics (and not just because they got me through that tumultuous time we all know as puberty!)
