We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

A very, very quick post, and update, as I am currently pausing the packing for my New Years trip, to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

In a previous post I briefly mentioned I had recently started a long distance relationship, well I am very chuffed to say I was invited to stay with him and his family over New Years, meaning I have a 6 day suitcase to pack (Sob.)

I shall go picture crazy while there, and give you all the gossip once I am soundly back in the dull Essex

Masquerade party & Long distance lovers.

This weekend has been a pretty eventful one for me! My lovely friend Nina celebrated her 18th birthday party, which was beautifully masquerade themed! it was a lovely party, had a good catch up with friends after not seeing them for a week (half term.) and gave us something to end the half term with a bang ready for college Monday (aka today. Boo.)

My mask for the party.
On another note, some of you may or may not remember a post i made about celebrating my two year anniversary in May this year. Well it is unfortunate for me to say the relationship ended a short time after that anniversary. I'm not clinging for sympathy, or going to divulge the details, but it gives a nice introduction to the remainder of this post. 

I do not know what your opinions or preferences are when it comes to dating but i would appreciate an open mind being taken towards this. 

Daniel and i have been talking for about a month, and an "item" for just under. (which i know to some may be incredibly fast, but if it didn't feel right, it wouldn't happen.) The unfortunate thing is that he lives about 7 hours away from me. Things are great at the moment and I am laughing and smiling and just being the happy bubbly me again. 

Does anyone have a cute romantic story they would wish to share? Or a personal experience of long distance relationships?

New favourite fall lipstick 2012

After doing my recent post about fall lipsticks i stumbled upon this beauty which has now become my favourite.
I have never really looked at the number 17 range in boots, but i was just browsing when i found this lovely off red lip shade.
I think its perfect for fall and winter and will suit most skin tones, it also goes well with the berry lips trend that is attacking the fashion world right now.

Whats your favourite fall lippy, and do you think you'll try the berry trend?

Hair update and FOTD

Hey guys!
So as you may see from the images below, i am now a purple headed (people eater) with far shorter hair than before. I was fed up with the same style, and have concluded that longer hair is hassle, and if i ever wish to go back there, i shall invest in clip-in extensions! Anyway, i thought i'd show you a quick update on my hair as well as my fotd!

My hair shall be going more purple at some point, when the plum fades a big.
Hope everyone has an amazing end of week

MUA, you disappoint me. Gel eyeliner review

Firstly, i would like to beg your forgiveness for not posting in forever, but i have lacked inspiration so to speak. So fingers crossed you do not hate me too much..

Now! The review! I LOVE MUA products.. Usually. This one however, i died a little inside.
There i was in superdrug oggling the shelves as per usual, and thats when i saw it -cue heavenly music and beams of light- MUA HAS BROUGHT OUT A GEL EYELINER!! Now i know most of you probably know this, and i have owned it for quite a while but its been sitting there gaining dust as i think, this product is poop.

So better start with the good things before i rip this product to shreds. The consistency and the application is wonderful. Beautiful creamy gel, glides on smoothly, but it goes down hill from here.

Inside the lid you will find a brush - feed it to your dog.. NO DO NOT FEED IT TO YOUR DOG! But you get the idea. The brush is fiddly and useless, for me anyway. Then we get onto when its applied, now it sits beautifully but blink to hard and you get these awful flakes of product falling onto your cheek. Next it smudges like goodness knows what. Staying power my arse. Then of course if it smudges it does not last very well.

So it crumbles, smudges, the brush is poo, it doesn't last.


Have you tried and tested this product? What do you think of it?

Fall lipsticks - a few of my faves!

Hiya guys! So i know i've been a bad blogger and neglected you all by not posting! But i've had no inspiration, all my favourites have been the trusty same products that i always rant about, and lack of money has meant that i have bought hardly anything exciting! -sob-

But! Since it's not getting into autumn/fall (BOO!) I thought i'd update you all on my favourite fall lip colours!

 I have to say overall my favourite is "fig leaf" by natural collection. They also have a darker version which i might invest in! It's super soft and creamy and i just love the feeling of it on your lips! AND it's only £1.99! Woo-hoo!

What are your favourite A/W12 looks this season?

NOTD - a canary landed on my fingers

So I thought I'd do a quick nail post as I haven't made one in a whole. Today I'm wearing "yellow 134" by Barry m. It's a lovely bright yellow, and with a good couple of coats it gives a great summer mani or pedi. What's your favourite summer polish?

Thursday, 26 July 2012

My summer face.

So this post will be quite short but I thought I'd do a quick update of the makeup I shall be wearing during these hotter days

- natural collection tinted moisturiser in beige
- natural collection lipstick in fig leaf
- max factor masterpiece mascara
- Avon brown eyeliner
- barbara daly blusher in nude

As I said I'm sorry it's short but make up is my enemy in hotter weather. This look is very low coverage and so perfect for disgusting sweaty days where you don't want to feel your makeup

Tanning it up.

Hey guys so this is going to be a really quick tanning post of what I do and a before and after pic.

So the products I use are the palmers gradual tan and st moriz instant tanning lotion

I apply the instant then the gradual using rubber gloves over a well moisturised face and body. (the images are just my face because I'm too lazy to tan any more at the moment. Also I use nivea cream)

Both tabs will develop over night a nf the result will be golden but without being orange.

WARNING: neither smell particularly nice.

But apart from that I think they are great tanners!

The picture where I am also holding the bottle is the before (I know they look pretty similar but it is because I diluted the tan with the moisturiser)


My lucky day

Just thought I'd share a little bit of luck with you as it seems to be running off on me lately

I won two pounds on a scratch card and so it paid for the scratch card and the drink I bought at the same time. Yay!

Ramble over,
Hope everyone has a great day!

Amazing bath bomb purchase.

When I was away recently I came across an amazing shop that was basically a non branded "Lush" (lush sells amazing Eco friendly animal cruelty free products like bath bombs.
I of course had to go in and look and I came across this little beauty. Parma kalma. The bath bomb smells exactly like Parma violets (a type of sweet/candy you can get in the UK) it cost me £2.50, which is slightly cheaper than the average in Lush.

Not only does it smell great but instantly my skin felt softer and the water went an amazing purple colour! (pictures below)

What's your favourite bath time treat?

And incredibly late May Favs.

Sorry this is super late peoples but i honestly had to narrow down my favourites to something new and interesting since products don't really change much in my routines. (I'm a student with no money, i use everything til it's death.)

So, here are the products..
All three products

Superdrug hair wax - amazing stuff and only £1.50! I love beach-y hair so this stuff is perfect for the "Just got out of bed and look fab" look

Amazing. Tan. For. 99p!
Creightons bronze ambition "Glowngo" tan, the 99p store! (review coming soon as i cannot get enough of the stuff)

Avon lipstick in pout (special edition packaging) My all time favourite lipstick, and the final product. I use it everyday hence why it's almost gone. Luckily i have another one! :D

So that's my favourites post, hope you enjoyed and might be tempted to try the products yourself!
