Going for Gold - Olympic Special

I thought it would be fun to do a series of posts inspired by the London 2012 Olympics and the medals they are handing out (gold, silver and bronze). So, first off, lets start with some awesome gold beauty and fashion items!


Barry M 'Gold Foil Nail Effects' - Available from Superdrug for £3.99.
I have this polish in silver and it is opaque in just one coat. I think this would be the perfect gold polish to be sporting during the olympics.

Nails Inc 'The Medal Collection' - Available from ASOS for £15.50
Well, you can't get more perfect than this can you! This is also pretty good value as you get 3 full size Nails Inc polishes for £15.50 (£5.16 each). As you can tell by the name, this set was created in honour of the Olympics so it could be a souvenir or keepsake right?!?!

Urban Decay 'Half Baked' - Available from Beauty Bay for £14.00 
This eyeshadow is the perfect gold to sweep across your lids. It is perfect for Summer and for supporting whichever team you're routing for (Team GB!!) I have this in my Urban Decay 'Naked Palette' which I am reviewing and swatching in tomorrow's post!

MAC's 'Supernova Blush' - Available from MAC for £19.00 (limited edition)
I know it's not entirely gold but this blush has beautiful swirls of gold running through the hot pink. This looks absolutely amazing but I don't know if I can justify spending that much when I have too much makeup already... If you are thinking of picking this up, it is limited edition so better hurry!

Fashion & Accessories:

TFNC Sequin Prom Dress - Available from ASOS for £45.50 (on sale from £65)
This dress is so pretty. I'm not sure I could pull it off but it would look amazing on the right person! If I was to wear this, I would pair it with all black accessories.

Micheal Kors Gold Chronograph Watch - Available from ASOS for £199
If you fancy splurging on a gorgeous, classic watch then this MK watch is perfect. Personally, if I were to spend this much on a watch it would be the Rose Gold MK Watch because it is so pretty!!

River Island Gold Glitter Platform Heels - Available from ASOS for £31.50
These gold heels would look amazing with a little black dress! They would add just the right amount of glitz and glamour to an outfit. They only have a limited number of sizes left so get in there quick!

Hope you liked my take on GOLD coloured pretty things!! Stay tuned for silver - that will be up soon - after my Naked Palette Review & Swatches!

Thanks for reading. xoxo
