TV Shows Galore!

So I know I mainly talk about makeup and fashion, but I thought I would diverge from that for a quick post! 

Now I am a 3rd year University student, so when I have some free time, or doing a mindless assignment I like to watch a show and have it in the background. So here are my top 5 favourite TV shows (Non Reality) of ALL time! Let me know if you check any of them out!!

  1. Gilmore Girls - Classic. It aired on TV from 2000 - 2007. I am currently going through the series again for the billionth time. If your a girl and you want something witty, has amazing references to movies, shows ect., then this is your show! Watch the first 3-5 episodes of season one and you'll be hooked! Seeing the TV shows are hilarious also. :)
  2. How I Met Your Mother - Hilarious! Now although the season currently on air is not their best, the first few seasons of this show are the best! Short and quick so they are easy to squeeze in on a relaxing night!
  3. The Unit - Date Show. My boyfriend and I love to sit and watch shows together. This one is perfect because it has the army aspect to catch the appeal for guys and some wifey drama to catch the girls. At first I didn't like it but it got better and better by every episode. It only lasted a few seasons, but if you have a chance definitely check it out!
  4. One Tree Hill - How could I not include this? It has been out for more years then I can count. Although its time for them to call it an end this year, I will be sad to see it go. The show has ended completely different then it started, but it definitely is still amazing. I can't complain it just its a girl show. 
  5. 90210 - Last but not least. This show catches my appeal for a different reason. The fashion. As many of you would know that watch this show, it is not in a poor area of California. The show features amazing styles and trends. It makes me want to shop! Sorry wallet :)

Spring Nail Polish Trends!

Cream Colours!
I love cream, pale shades of nail polishes. They remind me of Easter Eggs from when I was little. Some of  my favourites are a mint green, pale pink or robins egg blue! Here is what I use :)

Minted Green: 
Revlon 'Jaded'
LOVE the colour, HATE the formula. It is goopy and I can never get it fully opaque. Any suggestions of dupes?

Bright Coral:
Essie 'Peach Daiquiri'
Amazing, bright colour! It has an amazing formula and perfect pigmentation. I use about 3 coats before I get the perfect colour. 

Pale Blue
Essie 'Lapiz of Luxury'
This colour is subtle but has a beautiful colour against almost any colour of top or dress. Definitely one of my top picks.

What are your favourites? Any good dupes for the minted green colour?

High End or Drug Store???

Some of the best mascaras I have ever used have been both high end AND drug store! I seem to face a curse with almost out of my mascaras, its called the 'Tease Curse'. I find a fantastic mascara, then once its all used up I repurchase it with excitement and... it sucks! The formula either is too liquidy or too clumpy. 

However, when everything is said and done there is two mascaras that I can always turn to!

The first is Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara. EVERY TIME I wear this mascara, I get compliments about my lashes. I get asked if they are real or what I use. However, with this amazing find, comes a price tag. The mascara retails for around $30-34 a bottle. 

The second is a drug store mascara. It is the Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara. WOW!! I got this as a freebee at a beauty event at a local drug store and it has not disappointed! I have used three tubes of it since and it never fails. I must admit, I do find the formula has a better formula a week or so after it has been opened. I find it is initially has a more liquify formula, and after a few days it thickens up and just creates thick, long lashes after just a few coats!

Let me know what your favourite mascara :)
