Liebster Award!

Hello my lovelies!
How are you all? I hope you are having a lovely weekend! This post is going to be on the Liebster Award!

I have been so lucky to have been nominated by these 16 beauties below! Thank you all so much! - Lex Robinson - Lily and Ella - Kiara Anne Catanzaro - Alessandra Du Maurier

I'm afraid I'm only going to answer questions from the top three blogs as a) this would be an extremely long blog post. b) some of the questions are the same or similar so there is no point in answering the same questions over and over again.
Please, do not be offended by this! If there are any questions you would like me to answer, just let me know!

I really like Charlotte Hemingway's blog  because it is very informative, it is well presented and interesting to read.
2) Do you have any weird habbits, what?
Umm, only with the way I eat my food. For example, I have to nibble the chocolate off of a Kit Kat before I eat the rest of it...but I guess a lot of people do that so it's not that weird? I also have to carry hand sanitiser and anti bacterial wipes everywhere with me...I guess that's kinda weird?

Probably New Look as it is fairly priced and they have some decent clothes in there.

Pixar! Just because I love Despicable me and I have an obsession with the cute little minions!

I don't really wish to be anyone else really, although they do have a lot of money and fame etc they still have problems like anyone else.

Depends really on how much money I have to spend! I recently went into Boots and spent £40! Although, I did have a £20 voucher. Normally it would be around £20 I guess?

1. Iggy Azalea - Work

3. Jason Mraz - I'm yours

Answered in the first set of questions!

Curls galore!

Hello my lovelies!  How are you all?
I thought I'd share with you all my friend's media make-up assessment as I was lucky enough to have been asked to be a model for her.
My friend, Chloe Southall is studying media make-up at college and she was looking for someone to be a model for her first assessment, so of course I was ecstatic when she asked if I would like to be a model for her! 

The theme for Chloe's assessment piece was based on 1950's Rita Hayworth.
The picture below is Rita Hayworth.

Around two weeks before her assessment, I stayed round her house so she could do a trial run...and I thought it would be great to show you guys and gals the different stages and the final result!

Here is the different stages of the rollers being put in. I was really excited to go under one of the old style hair dryers. 

 Here is how the curls turned out! 


And here is the final result!

This is how I looked on the actual day of Chloe's assessment! I really hope she gets a good grade as personally I think she did amazing!

What have you been up to this week?

Got a mega jam-packed week ahead of me, with lots of mocks; homework and coursework. What fun aye! 
I'm trying to keep my posts as regular as I can, however there may be a few delays here and there but keep your eyes peeled! 

I just thought I'd share with you a quick out-fit of the day!

Sorry for the awful quality pictures, but I was in a rush today so I quickly took them on my phone. Anyways, my top is from New Look and I got it in the sale for £7.00 and my jeans are also from New Look and I also purchased it in the sale for £10.00

I'm also wearing some gold style cross ear rings which were £3.00 from New Look as well. I then wore my red converses with this outfit too.

Happy Monday Everyone!

Hello my lovelies!

 I hope you are all having a good start to the new week. I am sorry for not posting as much at the moment, I've simply just been sooooo busy with college. Also this weekend I went to visit Mikolaj, who is my lovely boyfriend ! He's currently studying at Swansea University.
So I thought I would just share with you all some of the photos I took when I was in Swansea .

These photos were taken on Sunday, the weather was a bit chilly but it was rather sunny too. We had such a lovely walk on the beach and afterwards we went for ice cream at this amazing place called Joe's Ice Cream. Their ice cream is the best I've ever had! It so smooth and creamy.

So I'd love to know how you spent your weekend! & What did you get up to? Let me know in the box below!

An Every Day Make Up Look!

Hello my lovelies!

I hope you are all having a good weekend so far. Today I thought I'd just share with you all my everyday make up look that's really easy and doesn't take long at all to do .

The brushes I use are the Real Techniques ones which I got for Christmas, there are two sets of brushes in the picture here.
So I started off the look with Rimmel's Match Perfection foundation in the colour 100 Ivory. I find this a very nice and light foundation for my skin. 
  I then went on to use MUA's Undress Your Skin Radiant Eye Concealer, I like using this concealer as it is very cheap at £3 and it does exactly what I want it to! I then went on and applied Rimmel's Stay Matte Pressed Powder in the colour 003 Peach Glow.

For my eyes I used two purple colours. One light for the base and I then used a sparkly purple on top, although I do change the colours I use everyday but today I was in the mood for these particular colours.In the picture they are the top two colours on the right hand side. These were just colours I have on a pallet but unfortunately I don't have the name of it.

I used Collection 2000's Extreme 24 hour felt tip liner for the top of my eyes and then I used Miss Sporty's Mini-Me eye liner in 010 Black Raven for the bottom part of my eyes.
Then I finished off my eyes by applying Maybelline's the Falsies Volume Express mascara on both the top and bottom eyelashes.

I then applied MAC's Pearlmatter in Pink Butter-cream to highlight different parts of my face such as just under my eyebrows and the top of my cheeks, and I then apply Collection 2000's Blush in the colour 01 So Pretty. 

Finally, I then apply some of Maybelline's Baby Lips in the colour Pink Punch and off I go!

What's your everyday make-up look? & What products do you like to use?

Pierce it up!

Hello eveyone! 
How are you all? I hope you are all having a good week.

I just wanted to quickly share with you all my new piercing.
So last weekend my boyfriend treated me to a piercing, well in fact it was a late Christmas present as I had to have a scan and couldn't have any metal on me.
Anyways,I decided to get a piercing called the Rook. I got the piercing at Blue Banana. It cost £12.50 including the after care bits and bobs.
The piercing itself hurt a fair bit but it was over quickly and the pain didn't last very long at all.

Do you have any piercings? & If not, then what piercing would you like?

Review on Imperial Leather's Skin Kind Raspberry and Lime Blossom Body Wash!

Hello my lovelies! 
How are you all today?

Today I want to share with you a review on a new shower gel I've been using lately. It's the Imperial Leather Skin Kind Raspberry and Lime Blossom Body Wash.

I would say that this product is family friendly as the smell is so fresh that both guys and gals could use it. This shower gel is hypo-allergenic, pH neutral, has an allergen free fragrance and it has been dermatologically tested.
The bottle itself is easy to hold and has an easy shut lid.The simple design is great for all age ranges.

I think that this shower gel smells amazing. It's smells fresh and sweet, the smell is also not overpowering which is great. It contains jojoba oil moisture beads which enhance the moisturising side of the shower gel, it also adds to the triple moisturising effect the bottle says it has.

 I think that this product is very moisturising, it leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth. It's great that it doesn't leave your skin feeling tights or dehydrated which other products have done in the past.It is a thick shower gel which is great because you don't need to use much of it for it to lather up, so I do think that it's worth it.

Do you like Imperial Leather? & What's your favourite product of theirs?

Mini College Haul!

Hello my lovelies!

I was just in WHSmith's the other day and I picked up a few bits for college and thought I'd share them with you all!

The first thing I picked up is the 8 pack of Stabilo Boss Origional highlighters. I was running out and I spotted these beauties. Also exam season will soon be approaching us and theses are sure to make my exam papers stand out! I'm in love with all the colours and don't they look so pretty?! The cost only £3.99 which I thought was a very good price, I can't wait to use them!

The next thing I picked up was note pads. You can never have too many of them. Now WHSmith's had an offer on their note pads, it was three note pads for £4.99. These note pads have 200 pages in each one.

I also picked up a small hello kitty note pad to write down all my homework assignments and coursework I have to do, otherwise I'll end up forgetting! I'm currently going through a phase where I really like hello kitty and this cute little note pad will be used a lot. This cost £1.65.

Carrying on with my hello kitty phase, I also picked up a hello kitty pen. It comes with the cutest little charm on it and I also thought that the grip was very good as well which is a plus from me. The pen cost £1.20.

What do you like to take to college/school? & What are your favourite stationery pieces? Let me know in the box below!
