Halloween Jewels

I am in love with these three purchases from Claire's Accessories, I think they will be perfect for when I am going out over Halloween.  

How amazing is this chocker, reminds me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the purple jewel is too cute. I can't wait to wear this with a dark makeup look.

Sorry for the blurry photo but I picked this long necklace up as well. I love the crescent moon shape with the crosses and stars. I would wear this with anything.

This is my favourite of the three and I think I will leave this for Halloween night. It's like a 1920's Queen on Darkness vibe. Haha I'm the worst at describing. 

These were part of a 3 for 2 deal so I couldn't resist! Can wait to go out out an wear them now!

Candles | Lemon Cake

We all love candles, I'm constantly buying them and looking for new scents. I'm not a huge fan of food scented candles, I like to have a lot burning at once so neutral scents is usually what I look for so the room isn't super over powering. However I seen this jar in Savers today and I thought it was the cutest thing. When I seen lemon pound cake scent I was a bit sceptical to say the least because it sounds awful but I was so surprised. It has such a fresh sugary lemon scent that's not too strong. I love reusing jars after they burn out as well and it was only £1.99 I think, happy!

LUSH Wishlist | Halloween 2014 Edition

The wonderful products of LUSH are no secret, they are mentioned and raved about consistently, and rightly so in my opinion. Fight against animal testing, ethical buying, vegetarian friendly, hand made, it's not hard to see why these products are so popular. I am defiantly on the bandwagon, I would be driving it if I could and there is nothing more exciting than new collections and limited editions. This post will be about the Halloween products in the Autumn/Winter 2014 collection that I so desperately need, I mean want, I really mean need.

Tattoo Wishlist

The big one. I've wanted something very similar to this for ages! I'd like mine a little smaller on the front of my right thigh. It would be a tribute to my parents, even thought they aren't entirely keen on the idea. They both have tattoos but aren't keen on me getting any more, probably just worried encase I regret it. Awh well, it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission!  

My second most wanted tattoo is a character from Tim Burton's first short film, Vincent. The amount of times I have watched it is crazy, I don't even think I can count that high. There was a time were I would put it on straight after I had come home from a nigh out. I would just sit on my own at 5am, probably eating everything in the house. Strange, very strange. Anyway, left leg above the ankle is where I would like this beauty.

Very simple, very meaningful. An equality tattoo, I desperately want this on the side of my middle finger on the part closest to the knuckle if that makes sense. However I'm too scared of what my mummy would say, yes I am 21 and yes I still listen to my mother. But I could hide it if I wanted to right? Right? Please say yes. 

I only came across this design a few nights ago and I think it fits what I want perfectly. I've always wanted something to do with us humans being connected to the universe. Skeleton is all humans, in the ocean the oldest most natural of human condition and a mermaid, who doesn't love mermaids. I just thought the pearl was the realisation of that, the key.   

This tattoo has become a bit of a trend, I've seen a lot of it on Pinterest but I think it's the cutest idea. I would 100% get the coordinates of my home town if I moved away permanently. The placement in this picture is perfect I feel, I'd say I'd get it there too.

That's my wishlist! If I had the money I would have each of these right now. So it's save save save for now until I can tick these all off!
