The 10 Day Beauty Challenge: Day 2

I recently started the 10 Day Beauty Challenge tag as inspired by Adore-A-Polish, so here's my day 2 update!

OK, so day 2 means telling you all of 9 things I like. I'm taking this to mean literally anything, so let's do this!

joey essex, towie, the only way is essex, essex, lauren goodger, sam fairs, mark wright, arg, james argent, gemma collins, dalmatian puppy, dalmatian, revlon just bitten kissable balm stain, revlon balm stain, revlon, balm stain, clinique chubby stick dupe, clinique chubby stick, tru blood, anna paquin, asos, asos marketplace, opi, o.p.i., rainbow in the s-kylie, kardashian kolor opi, nicole for opi, essie button, button goose, hot nails, nail art, the nailasaurus
Pictures aren't numbered by how much I like them - they're just easier to talk about that way.
1) Joey Essex as representing The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE):
Yes, I'm a sucker for this stuff! I watch TOWIE, Made In Chelsea, Desperate Scousewives, Teen Mom... The list goes on. For some reason I absolutely love reality television shows (with the exception of Big Brother - not reality enough for me). Confession of the day: I would consider going on one reality show, and one only; Shipwrecked!

2) My puppy Jasper:
Does this really need explaining? Just look at him! As I mentioned in my Day 1 post for this tag, just follow me on Instagram (alicedewa) for copious picture updates on Jasper's daily activities. N'awwwwww. 

3) Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains:
I recently held a giveaway featuring these as they had been the absolute talk of the blogging world, and as I was buying the giveaway prizes of course I had to buy a couple for myself too! These products are simply amazing for a high-street product. I have to be honest, I didn't have that high expectations of these as I was a tad disappointed with the previous Revlon Lip Butters, but these balm stains more than made up for it. Read my in-depth review of these babies here.

4) True Blood:
This post is actually the second time I've mentioned this television show on my so-called beauty blog now! I love it so much that I snuck in a NOTD post dedicated to my love of all things True Blood not long ago. For those that don't know, True Blood is a television series based on a series of novels depicting a world where vampires and humans live alongside each other, hower vampires are considered the under-class, and face a lot of prejudice - there's also a lot of saucy scenes too, so under-ager's be warned!

5) ASOS Marketplace:
The holy grail of new, used and vintage clothes! Admittedly I have only bought one item from a seller on ASOS Marketplace before, but many hours of my life have been spent browsing the 1000's of pages. It's basically Ebay for the 15-35 year olds, except with no auctions, just 'Buy it Now' options. Go check it out!

6) O.P.I.'s Rainbow in the S-Kylie by Nicole:
My favourite nail polish bar none. This was my first ever O.P.I. purchase, and boy what a good choice! It's from the Kardashian Kolor range, and boasts both micro glitter and glitter chunks in colours ranging from silver to pink. This polish is basically a disco ball effect for your nails, so if you're anything like me - you'll love it!

7) Typing "hot nails" into Google:
If ever I am bored, and am itching to try out new nail art designs, I always start my routine with the same activity; googling "hot nails". Doing this is actually how I came across a lot of my favourite nail art blogs, so I definitely suggest you try this out, or certainly using words to the same effect.

8) Essie Button: 
My oh my, a girl after my own heart! Essie Button is a Canadian beauty blogger/YouTuber who's now living her life up in old Blighty. I only discovered her this year after clicking on one of her beauty videos from my recommended section on YouTube, I wish I'd found her sooner! She always puts a comedic spin on her beauty videos, and adds that little touch to her blog posts too. Find her YouTube channel here, and her blog here.

9) The Nailasaurus: 
My favourite nail art blogger! This blog is one that I actually found by typing "hot nails" into Google - proof that that technique works! Her designs are always original and absolutely incredible, and have provided a lot of inspiration for many of my own nail art designs, she's truly talented. Find her blog here.

So you read mine, what are your likes? See part 3 of this tag here soon!
