(Models Own £5.00 Each L-R White Light HERE, Pink Veneer HERE and Lilac Sheen HERE.)

Models Own recently launched their HyperGel collection which consists of 10 different shades. When they were holding a 50% off sale in aid of their Facebook page reaching 250,000 likes, I couldn't resist making a few purchases including these lovely polishes. The HyperGel Polishes are supposed to give you the effect of the increasingly popular Shellac or Gel Nails but without using any UV. The colour choice isn't too overwhelming but  I managed to find these three, which to me are extremely appealing and I will hopefully be getting a good amount of use out of them.

When I first applied Pink Veneer I was very pleasantly surprised by how easily it went on, and how opaque the polish is. So far this is the only one I've tried and it hasn't made any signs of chipping and has already been on my nails for 4 days!

I would definitely recommend the HyperGel polishes as a much cheaper alternative to salon prices for gel nails, definitely give them a go especially if you're thinking of trying Shellac or such.

(Tanya Burr's Lipgloss in 'Afternoon Tea' HERE £6.99) - This month there has been an unmissable hysteria surrounding the very exciting launch of Tanya Burr's Lips and Nails. Every review I have set my eyes on so far has been extremely positive and all of the shades look very appealing, especially the lipgloss in 'Afternoon Tea' which I think would be a very wearable everyday shade.

(Barry M Silk Nail Effects Collection HERE £3.99) - I am such a sucker for anything pastel coloured and I'm really excited to try some metallic's as I don't often opt for a metallic. Personally I have tried quite a wide range of different nail polish brands including OPI and always find myself preferring Barry M.

(Tanya Burr's Nail Polish in 'Mini Marshmallows' HERE £5.99) - Out of all of Tanya's Polishes this is the one that stood out to me at a first glance, and my mind was made up when she wore the lovely 'Mini Marshmallows' in a recent video.

(Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove HERE £43.75) - I can't remember exactly where/who's blog I stumbled across to find the extremely overpriced Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove, but either way I am lusting after one to make my life so much easier. It has literally every possible thing you could think of to help keep your brushes looking fresh,clean and undamaged.

(Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel in 'Lavender Soap' (AVAILABLE FROM MARCH HERE ) £6.49) - This new release from Revlon is a scented Nail Polish, which always goes down well, I have already spotted a lovely lavender shade/scented polish that I can't wait to try.

(Chanel N°5 Eau De Parfum Spray HERE £47.50 - £94.50) - The iconic Chanel N°5 is nothing new by any means, but after I recently had a sniff in my local Debenhams I fell in love. It's not the sort of thing that you can impulse buy however, so I guess I will have to wait for December 25th to roll around.

(MAC Baking Beauties Pearl-Matte Face Powder in 'In For A Treat' HERE £21.50) - Now I know this was a limited edition product in a collection MAC did a while back, but it's just so so pretty and I kept seeing it everywhere so I decided to go on a mini search for it. And as with most things on the internet you can find anything if you look hard enough, fortunately for me I didn't have to look too hard as I found the beautiful powder still on sale in Selfridges, so I will be making a sneaky purchase as soon as I can!!!

(Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in 'Audacious' HERE £7.99) - I've never been brave enough to embrace the orange lips trend but recently I've been trying to focus on my own opinion of myself rather than other peoples, so I possibly may venture into some bright chubby lip pencils. Revlon are a favourite of mine for lip products too so I already know the Matte Balms are going to be great.

(Topshop MOTO Vintage Borg Denim Jacket HERE £58.00) - My first pick would have to be this borg lined denim jacket I have been lusting after for what seems like forever, I just think it's effortlessly pretty and the shade of blue is a lot more 'spring' which makes me happy that we're moving away from the endless dark-ness of A/W. The denim jacket is a very wearable item and is such a staple piece that would get used at every possible opportunity if I were to own it.

(Topshop Mint Textured Swing Coat HERE £89.00) - My personal favourite, must have item of the past few months would have to be the 'boyfriend coat', most commonly seen in the attractive pink shade. I have no shame in admitting that my weakness is just about anything in pastel colours, and it comes as no surprise that although this lovely mint coat has a hefty price tag, it doesn't put me off in the slightest and I see it as an investment.

(New Look Petite Pink Textured Zip Back Boxy Top HERE £14.99) - The next thing I have chosen is a plain pastel pink top, with zip detailing on the back, which can be worn in many different ways. For example you could dress it up with a statement necklace and a black faux leather skort, or play it down with just some simple Joni Jeans and a Denim Jacket, it's a staple piece in anyone's wardrobe.

(Topshop Tall Brush Gingham Aline Skirt HERE £36.00) - Now I may have made the slight mistake of not realising that the beautiful skirt is currently only being sold specifically in 'Tall' and I am by no means tall so this upsets me. But if you do happen to be blessed with long legs then by all means jump at the chance to own this stunning gingham piece :(

(Topshop ALLSORTS Chelsea Boots HERE £45.00) - AHH BEAUTIES!!! These stunning boots are another take on the ever so popular Chelsea Boots, and I can't take my eyes off of them. I think they could be paired with so many things and just completely pull it off, such as the previously mentioned 'Gingham Skirt' or even just some hot pants to dress them down in the summer of 2014 which is vastly approaching.

(New Look £17.99 HERE)

 It's been a good 5 weeks now since I gained possession of this cute little faux leather backpack, and boy have I already gotten my use out of it. The high standards are visible of the very well made little bag, there are no visible signs of wearing and I have been using it every chance I get, loading up with 'essentials'. As everyone knows black goes with everything - blah, blah, blah, but this really is just easy to style and seems to pretty much be one of those things you really don't have to think much about.

Now I have to put it out there, whenever I leave the house I deem it necessary to take a large selection of everything I own with me just in case I need it, which seems to put my mind at rest for the most part so I don't question the common habit. My point is that although the backpack looks small and weak don't let looks deceive you as in fact it's very capable of carrying rather a lot.
