Round Two-Fight!

Morning everyone!
You might be wondering where I’ve been as it’s been a few weeks so, I decided that the best way to tell you was through a video. It’s quite long, I warn you now! 

Hope you’re all fabulous!

Primark Makeup Sponge for 70p?!

Oh hey y’all

How goeth it?

Agesssss ago I wanted a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge but I was umming and arring and so my friend suggested buying a Primark one in the meantime.

  

  
I haven’t shopped in Primark for ages but, as always, money is tight and when my friend said their sponges were 70p, I couldn’t resist.

  
 I feel that this sponge is more focused on the shape of a Beauty Blender and it’s quite a sturdy, thick sponge. It felt that it could do some serious blendage.

When I started to use it, I was really impressed. It make the foundation blend seamlessly and everything looked flawless. 

HOWEVER, for some reason, when I used it the second time, it didn’t look great. It started to take off some of my makeup and I couldn’t understand what was happening.

  
A good few days later, it was pointed out to me that I needed to actually wet the sponge. Yes, I was embarrassed and yes, it did make sense.

Now, I actually haven’t tried it since but now it’s all cleaned and washed I am looking forward to doing so! 

I now also have a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge in my makeup bag which is fabulous (blog post on that coming soon) but I think for 70p you cannot go wrong with this sponge!

Has anyone else purchased one of these? Did you forget to wet it too?!

Oh My Gosh I’m Finally Using Micellar Water! 

…and it hates my skin 😦

Guys, I am so upset by this *sigh*

So, I got Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water in a 3 for 2 deal with Sarah (yep, I hang out with her A LOT) and her sister at Boots and I was so excited to try this. I had heard the most glorious things about this.

After a day of full makeup, I reached for the cotton pads and began to generously pour the water on, gently rubbing away my layers.

I studied the pads to find the makeup and I smiled- this truly did what it said it would!

I was over the moon- finally a quick solution to taking off the makeup. I used it the next morning and the following night and it was then when I noticed my skin.

Oh my goodness what had happened to my skin.

I was covered in spots, tiny spots around my nose, big zits on my forehead and cheeks, red skin which looked sore. Of course it had to be this holy grail beauty product.

I sighed in annoyance.

I had just started to clear my skin up from a bad breakout from a overly exfoliating face mask. What was going on here?!

Luckily, my spots seemed to have cleared up after a week and I have fabulous skin again. I had to use a lot of tea tree oil and lavender though.

I’m not sure what happened here, has anyone else had this problem? Are there any other uses for this water since I’ve now paid for it haha!

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?

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?
