Revolution Makeup Radiance Highlighter Palette!

Morning morning morning!

So I haven’t quite been posting everyday sorry guys, it’s been a mad week.

How are you all though?!

I wanted to share my experience with Makeup Revolution’s Radiance Highlighter palette today.

I bought this a while ago because I wanted a really nice highlighter but, as per usual, I didn’t have a lot of money to spare so I did a little bit of research. In the end, I decided that Makeup Revolution’s palettes seemed affordable and gave a lovely look.

 

I chose their Radiance Highlighter palette which was only £8. I felt that this palette gave a really nice and generous selection and I was keen to try it!

It doesn’t exactly tell you how to apply it but then again, I’ve actually used this palette as a blusher aswell.

At the minute my blushers have been a bit too harsh for me- it’s prompted the bf to say something so you know it’s bad! I have a very pale complexion but I also have quite rosy cheeks and felt this shades would make me glow and not like I was embarrassed like before *cringe*.

  
 

I tend to use the bottom colour as a blusher or the top one as these are the darkest, adding the middle to the top of my cheekbones. 

They give a lovely sheen and shimmer and are easily buildable. I also put it on before my powder so that if I have gone a little too far I needn’t panic!

 

The colours are lovely and rich and I think they’re perfect for all year round. Again, they don’t limit you to a day or night look and to be honest, you aren’t reduced to using just one or two lipsticks with them.
  

I absolutely love this palette and, for £6, it’s such a bargain, it’s definitely worth it!

Has anyone got this palette? What do you think? Would you buy this?

New Look Jewellery Haul- No, I Didn’t Need Them

Heyyyy!

I went into New Look.

It was just an innocent mooch I promise! However, when I saw Buy One Get One Free on all jewellery and hair accessories I kind of had to have something.

I know, I’m trying to save but look how prettyyyyy!   

I love that I could get all of these pairs for £3.99! What a bargain 😮

I really like the little studs and think that they’ll just be great for everyday, giving a bit of a casual feel to my outfits. I also think they could grunge me up a bit.

  
I’ll be wearing the big studs when I want to make more of a statement, though! I love that they look a little bit 90s and this sort of opal stone in the middle. I’ve never been a massive fan of that kind of stone but I think it works well with the gold and it can add a touch of glamour maybe!

  
I think these will probably work best with a plainer outfit and with my makeup kept at everyday. I think I could play around with my makeup though, when it comes to the other studs. 

Has anyone else cashed in on this offer?! Let me know!

Lush Oxford Street’s Exclusive Lotus Bath Bomb :o

Bonjour!

I’m having a lot of baths recently so I apologise now.

I was a very lucky girl before Christmas, well, in some senses and felt like I was being constantly spoilt.

I’d had a lovely birthday, I was treated with copious amounts of Lush gifts from friends and I was feeling quite overwhelmed by it all.

Just when I thought that I’d had enough, my lovely friend Sarah (you know her) visited London and of course, couldn’t leave without visiting the Lush Oxford Street. Whilst there, she had decided to pick me up a little exclusive but I had no idea what she’s get…

  

Well, low and behold, she returned with the Lotus bath bomb- a beautiful, white, purple and yellow bath bomb in the shape of a lotus flower. It smelt gorgeous but I had to be very careful with at the petals had a tendency to break.

  

After months of me saving it, I decided that I should just enjoy it, after all she had purchased it for me for a reason. So, one more I decided that the time was now!

I ran a lovely hot bath and popped in on the surface of the water. Straight away it fizzed and darted, leaving clouds of purple and white in it’s path.

  

It gave off floral and calming scents and, eventually, dissolved leaving an imprint in the water. Needless to say, it was stunning.

  

I would really love to have some more of these, I love the design of them, they are just so very pretty. I really hope that one day they’ll pop them in every Lush store 😦

Has anyone tried or purchased this bath bomb? What did you think?

Primark Tea Lights

Morningggg

Y’all know I’m obsessed with Tea Lights right? 

I can’t stop myself from buying them, although, it has been a while (are you proud?).

However, I’m running low on my pineapple and ginger tea lights so, unlike a normal person who waits to actually run out before purchasing more, I have purchased more.

  
I really like the scent of these because the pineapple isn’t a terribly fake smell and the ginger isn’t over powering. 

  
I wouldn’t say that they lasted terribly long but for £1.30 you get 30 so I’m not complaining. 

  
They’re a light yellow too and so tie in nicely with my tea light holders. Is that sad that I’m giving that as a reason to buy them?

Anyway, has anyone purchased any tea lights recently? What’s your preferred scent?!

Intergalactic Bath Bomb From Lush 

Hey hey

I’m not sure if this will turn out to be a review or just a little rant about how amazing this bathbomb is. Let’s see shall we!

Okay, so, I was given this bathbomb by the lovely manager at my hometown store. I love the manager there, I’ve been bobbing in and out of Lush frequently for the past year now and he just knows everything and what I’ve been going through healthwise, ect. He’s become a friend.

So, when I found out about the silly tumour that was in my kidney, I chose to go to Lush and treat ma self. I regailed the manager with my woes and, even though I was prepared to pay, he very kindly gave me the Intergalatic bath bomb.

Now, I must say that I was really put off by the smell at first. It’s a very minty smell and I seem to be opposed to the smell of mint unless it is combined with chocolate or if it’s meant for my teeth, I’m not sure why though.

I did, however, love the design. It really made me quite happy. It was super blue and super sparkly. I just loved, loved, loved it. So I decided to pop the whole thing in my bath.


I watched it fizz away happily and dart all over the bath, leaving trails of pinks and greens behind. It painted my bath water blue, turqoise even. It looked like a piece of art. I couldn’t stop watching it…I was mesmerised.

I also breathed in the scent, slightly minty but also very much your usual heavenly Lush smell. It was incredible.

I hopped in and had a glorious sparkly, blue bath. I don’t think I dared to wash my hair but maybe I should have done so I’d sparkle more.

I was actually really sad because I discovered the sparkles hadn’t attached themselves to me 😦

Maybe I should try two…

Anyway, I give this bath bomb a massive thumbs up and suggest you all go and purchase one now!

Has anyone else tried this one? What do you think? Also, does anybody else love sparkles?

My Weekend OOTD and Cake Obvs

Hi hi hi!

How are you all? How was your weekend?

Thought I’d do a little ‘weekend in pictures’ today. So, let’s start with Saturday:

Yes, it’s a selfie ha! Anyway, I put a little dry shampoo in my hair that day and it really gave it a little umph. At the minute I’m using a fab one from Matrix but unfortunately, I can’t seem to see it anymore on their website! I’ll have to be careful with this last bottle then 😦

Anyhoo, the rest of the day wasn’t spent posing but was spent at Iain’s parent’s house as it was his Dad’s birthday. Thankfully, he liked his gift! 🙂

So, moving onto Sunday. My incredible best friends came to see me on Sunday. We didn’t have much planned but in preparation for going out, I wanted to do a full face of makeup so here is what I put on this little old face of mine:

Everything here can be bought at Debenhams, Boots, SuperdrugHolland and Barratt, Lush or Topshop.

So in my little collection here I’ve got moisturiser, primer, foundation, concealer, blusher (the little pot), eyeliner, mascara, eyebrow brush, powder brush and powder!

I wanted to keep quite a natural finish to my face today and kept a simple flick on my eyelids with just a hint of blusher and a nude lip.

I chose to keep a natural finish because of my outfit which was this!:


It sort of looks like I’m floating here but anyway, here is my outfit. I chose to wear my new ripped knee leggings from Matalan with my new Matalan jumper.

I topped this off with my Chelsea boots from Dr Martens (which I’m not sure are still available) and I just thought it gave a very relaxed look but with a bit of an edge.

Of course, I wore that to go out and eat a mahoosive slice of cookie cheesecake (I can’t remember the actual name of it!). Oh my goodness, it was so good. In fact, I’m ashamed at how much I ate of it. But it was so good.

It was from a pub near to where I live that does cakeaways and their cakes just make me so happy. If you look closely you can see me in the spoon :/

So that’s what I got up to! How about you? How was your weekend?

Stationery Wish List!

Okay, it’s all just notebooks but I want them all.

Hey hey

How are you today?

So, yeah, I kind of really want some notebooks. I don’t why because I have a few in my flat at the moment and I really should use them up but there’s something about a fresh notebook. I always tell myself I’ll do my neatest writing in this one or I won’t scribble a word out, you know weird things like that. Anyway, it never happens.

I think at the minute I’d like one because after my op I don’t really want to just sit still, I want to go out and do things, make things, write things. I’m getting a little muddled with my eagerness to do everything possible so I feel like notebook would keep me in check I  guess.

Below I’ve listed four current faves from Paperchase and Urban Outfitters because they are amazing, wonderfully weird and I love them.

Anyway, have a lil lookaroo or purchase them by clicking on the pics!

Going For A Cheeky Afternoon Tea

 Good Afternooooon,

How are we all on this fabulous Friday?

I wanted to do a little post today about what I spent Tuesday afternoon doing!

So I spent the day with Iain’s Mum and we decided to visit this lovely little tearoom called Dingle Farm which is near to where she lives.

I’ve been a few times and it’s just next to a farm (hence Dingle farm, I know!). It has a little shop opposite the tearoom and you can buy products which are organic and just a little bit more unique. As you enter the tearoom, you pass through a room dedicated to handmade items and books. It’s really lovely and it’s nice that the majority of the items are homemade.

Upstairs they have a beauty room and often have an artist on site who produces pet portraits! 

After passing through the little shop, you have the choice of three rooms to enjoy your treats in. We chose to go upstairs because there’s a nice little view from the upstairs window- it overlooks a pond and a forest!

Sadly, we were too late to get the table which we really wanted so we settled for one still close to the window.

Once settled, we decided to be naughty and have a hot drink and a slice of homemade cake each which would only cost us £4. 

The cakes are beautifully written on a chalkboard for all to see and within each room, little decorations hang which are available to purchase. Their crockery is all mismatched too and it gives it a lovely, homely feeling!

  

Carefully choosing off the board, I opted for a hot chocolate this time. It came with two marshmallows and this gorgeous, little chocolate design on top! They also brought me a little jug of warm milk too so I could top up!
    

Now cake wise…I simply had to have their Toffee Apple blondie. It was devine. It was so yummy. I had to actually try and slow myself down so I wouldn’t eat it within thirty seconds. 

It was nice and gooey and it had a bit of a brownie texture but it was stickier. The white chocolate on top was just enough too.
 

I wasn’t alone in enjoying my cake either as Gill had ordered her favourite- Chocolate Guiness cake! 

I actually thought the top was frosting or butter cream but it is indeed cream. Unfortunately, she couldn’t eat all of it and kindly saved the rest for Iain. She still enjoyed it with a pot of tea, though!

It is such a lovely place to go to and I feel that it’s a little gem really! If you’re ever in the area I would recommend going or perhaps even taking a road trip to it!

Can anyone else recommend any lovely tearooms?

Update on bareMineral’s Lash Domination!

Guys, I’m not impressed.

I went to use this mascara the other day, the one that I had been so, so happy about using and then what did I discover? It had already become clumpy on the wand..what the?

I’m really annoyed as I haven’t even had this for two weeks and I’m sad because I thought I might be on to a winner! Obviously not 😦

Anyhoo, I guess I should look on the bright side and be glad I didn’t spend my money on it. On the plus side my ASOS order arrived today.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Topshop Jewellery Haul!

Hiiiiiiiii

I went to Topshop *hangs head in shame*

I couldn’t help it. I do not regret it though and here’s why- I got five lots of jewellery for £7. I know!

I’m not quite sure why they had such a good offer on and this was last Friday, so I’m not sure if it is still on. There were no signs up though and so I only discovered this offer when the cashier told me. Naturally, I went to town.

I purchased four pairs of earrings and a selection of rings. The rings are a little big- there were no medium selections and I liked them too much so I just push my fingers together when I go to pick something up. Yep, I will do strange things to wear nice jewellery.

I absolutely adore Topshop jewellery, I feel like their pieces never really go out of fashion. I will say, though, that one of the earrings has already broken which is a bit of a nuisance (the gold and pearl ones) but then again, they were practically free.

I think a lot of the pieces I’ll wear as part of a day look but will save these earrings below for a evening look as they look a little fancy. I feel that the rest of the items are quite grungy and will go nicely with the red lip and maybe some DMs.

Anyway, that was what I got! Did anyone else cash in on this deal?? Thoughts on Topshop jewellery?
