My Birthday gifts wish list. 

OK so I know it isn’t until October but for the past week or so I’ve been thinking about what I’d like for my birthday (you can never start too early haha plus it gives people time to buy you gifts) and which beauty products I’ve been wanting for ages not to mention other things I’ve been lusting over. Click on the pics to take you to the links. 😀 

No. 7 Illuminated Makeup Mirror. 

I have been wanting this mirror for so long! However, if anyone has any recommendations for me, I’d love to hear them! Especially when it comes to the magnified side and the brightness of the light. 

Morphe Brushes Eyeshadow Palettes. 

I am in love with Morphe Brushes eyeshadow palettes and would love to own more. They are definitely going on my birthday wish list

Morphe eyeshadow palette 35R. 

This is such a beautiful palette! Look at those golden shimmers! I love that there’s matte shades too.  I can only find it on Morphe’s actual site though. Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty don’t seem to have it in stock. 

Morphe eyeshadow palette 35B.

I don’t own a bright eyeshadow palette so this is definitely something I want, no, NEED in my collection. Again, I’m loving the fact there’s both matte and shimmer shades in this palette. Dying to get my hands on it! Imagine all the different looks you could do!

There’s more palettes I want from Morphe but I’ll stick with those. For now. 

Juvia’s Place The Magic Palette. 

I don’t own any products from Juvia’s Place but I have heard soooo many fab things about their eyeshadow palettes. I would love to have this one in my collection. 

Spectrum x Mean Girls Mini Burn Book and Brush Set.

Soooo fetch!

I LOVE the movie Mean Girls and I adore Spectrum brushes. I was so excited when they revealed that they were doing this collab! Roll on tomorrow! They are quite pricey but gosh so pretty!

Lime Crime Metallic Velvetines in Eclipse. 

I love Lime Crime lippies. There are many shades that I want but this shade is so darn pretty! They also currently have free worldwide shipping on orders $20+. Sooo tempting! 

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare. 

The second novel in the Dark Artifices series.

I am a huuuuge Shadowhunters fan! I have loved Cassandra Clare’s novels ever since I read the first three in the Mortal Instruments series – so you can imagine how ecstatic I was when she announced she was writing book four! She really sucks you in to the stories and makes you love/hate the characters as if they were your own friends/enemies. If there is a writer I aspire to be like,  it is her. I love the Shadowhunters fandom. My sister and I have even cosplayed as Shadowhunters! I did it for LFCC and then we both did it when we went to see City of Bones at the cinema.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Encyclopedia: The Ultimate Guide to the Buffyverse.

Ahhh Buffy. My first love when it comes to my favourite TV shows. This is where my love of all things paranormal properly began. I am such a nerd when it comes to Buffy haha. I’ve had so much Buffy merch over the years, it’s unreal. I’ve got Buffy on VHS, dvd AND the special collectors edition boxset from back when it was first released. I have Angel too (of course!) as does my fiancé but I refuse to get rid of my boxset because it’s the special edition. 😂 I could go on about Buffy all day but I’ll stop here. 😀

Morganville Season 1.

I loooved the book series by Rachel Caine (If you love your vampires then def check them out!) so I dying to see if the show has done it justice! 

Vampire Buffy and Vampire Angel pop figures. 

This is an SDCC 2016 exclusive and I so want it! Unfortunately it’s sold out but I’m hoping it can be found elsewhere. Maybe Ebay. 

There’s so many other pop figures I want too; Twilight, Game of Thrones, Disney… 

Sunnydale High hoody.

Whilst looking at the pop figures I came across this hoody. It’s Buffy related and it looks so snuggly! 

Buffy “I slay” bracelet. 

Hot Topic have recently brought out some brilliant Buffy merch. This bracelet is on sale at the mo too!

Buffy tee. 

This is another one from Hot Topic. Like I said, I’m a Buffy nerd. Just gimme all the merch!

Pandora Love Makes a Family Charm. 

I love my Pandora charms. This will be a suggestion for my other half I think.

Pandora Majestic Swan Charm. 

I have a double leather Pandora bracelet and the charms on that are all inspired by books. The swan charm would be a nod to Bella Swan from Twilight. 

Pandora Purple Poetic Droplet Ring.

I love purple! It’s one of my fave colours and I’ve had my eye on this ring for quite some time!
Zoeva Rose Golden Palette. 

This is another eyeshadow palette that I’ve had my eye on for a while. The shades are all so beautiful!

Zoeva Rose Golden Vol. 2 Complete Eye Brush Set. 

I would really love a set of Zoeva brushes. Especially when it comes to eyeshadow as I could do with some more brushes. These particular brushes aren’t cheap but this isn’t called a wish list for nothing lol.

I’m also into crystals (would absolutely love an amethyst geode)  and wicca and love black cats! So I’d love anything to do with those. Love anything Beauty and the Beast related too. I’m sure there are many more things that I’d like but have forgotten so for now I shall end it here. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading. 😀 


My Summer Book Stack.

Woohoo the Summer has officially arrived! Happy belated Summer Solstice everyone! Living in Pembrokeshire now means I get to go to the beach a fair bit during the Summer as we have several near by. That is on the few occasions that we actually get to see a bit of sun lol! I’m not one for the hot weather, but I do love bright sunny days where the sky is a beautiful shade of blue with a few fluffy clouds floating by. The perfect opportunity to sit on the beach and do a spot of reading. This brings me to my post. I’ve decided to put together a few books that I’d like to read over the Summer. My Summer book stack! Now, whether I’ll be able to get through them all, I don’t know but I shall certainly try. The books I’ve chosen are:

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

Burn For Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Life and Death Twilight Reimagined by Stephenie Meyer

I’ve had some of these books for quite some time but hadn’t got around to reading them. Hopefully I’ll get through them all this Summer! I am particularly excited about reading Lady Midnight as I adore Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. Have you read any of these? Do you have a Summer TBR list? What will you be reading? Let me know in the comments below! 😃
Oh, and if you don’t already know, we’re on Facebook! Stop on by and say hi!

Take care,


Expendables 3 star Kellan Lutz wants another Twilight film

Awww we do love our Kellan. I’d be happy to see him in another Twilight film. 😀

My outfit for a wedding’s evening do including Vince Camutos

Ok this is kind of a random post as normally I’d be posting about books or films or tv shows..,.but mostly books. Anywaaay… I’ve just bought a new outfit for my boyfriend’s cousin’s wedding evening party and it arrived today. It’s quirky! I love it: What do you think?

The dress is by Cutie

And the shoes are Vince Camutos. Those of you who are major Twifans and into cosplay will know that Rosalie wore a pair of Vince Camutos in the film.

Rosalie in the school Cafeteria wearing Vinnie Cs

After she got grumpy in the kitchen and smashed the bowl of salad

A clearer image of the Vince Camutos she wore.

And here ends my random post for today.

Twiathlon! Will YOU be going?


Cinema tickets for the Twiathlon (where you get to watch ALL of the Twilight saga back-to-back including the eagerly awaited Breaking Dawn Part 2 which will be shown at midnight on the 15th November 2012) have gone on sale today. Who’s excited? Who’s going? I’ve already booked my tickets for the Twiathlon. I know, I know I could watch it in the comfort of my own home saving me some pennies and just go see Breaking Dawn Part 2 but eeek I just love the atmosphere at the cinema and the fact you’re watching it with fellow Twihards! My sister and I went last year. It was so much fun and are so psyched to be going again this year. We’re even dressing up for it. Yup! Though I can’t reveal what we’ll be wearing as these outfits will also be making an appearance at Eternal Twilight 8 (A UK twilight convention which, oh my god, is a week on Friday)! Let’s just say, I think the cinema staff may think we’re crazy when they see us!

If anyone else knows of any other cinemas that are showing it, please feel free to comment.

Convention News! – Steph

Hey Everybody!

So, since i last posted i attended Eternal Twilight 7 – an unofficial convention for the fans of the Twilight Saga. At the convention the guests were:

Booboo Stewart

Bronson Pelletier

Noel Fisher

MyAnna Buring

Unfortunately due to Alex Meraz cancelling the day before the convention due to work commitments, there were only 4 guests at the event and only 3 on the sunday as MyAnna had to leave. Although a lack of guests was apparent, we still had an amazing time nonetheless. At ET7 Massive Events announced that there WOULD be an ET8 held later this year, however, it would be the last convention for Twilight alone. This news was horrific. These events have been a key feature of our year here at Secret Lives, with all of us attending. Although it will be very sad to say goodbye to these conventions, the line up for ET8 is proving vert strong from so early on in the planning. So far the guests confirmed are:

Peter Facinelli

Alex Meraz

Daniel Cudmore

Kiowa Gordon

Gil Birmingham

Justin Chon

Massive Events have promised us that these conventions will go out on a high.

In addition further bad news has surfaced. ‘The Games’,  a convention for the fans of ‘The Hunger Games’ has been cancelled due to lack of interest from both attendees and guests. This is sad news, more so because ‘The Hunger Games’ has been such a hit and has recently been constantly in the public’s eye. The Guests who were confirmed to attend the convention were:

Dayo Okeniyi

Leven Rambin

Although the event has been cancelled and the attendees will be fully refunded, the scheduled guests will now be appearing at a signing event – Collectormania, held at Milton Keynes. In addition, Jacqueline Emerson ‘Foxface’ has been announced to attend this event.


Have a great week!
