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!

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?

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?

bareMinerals Lash Domination Review

hi hi hi

How is it going lovely people?

Right, so, I wanted to do a little review on bareMineral’s Lash Domination mascara. I tried this yesterday after being given a miniature which Sarah (you know Sarah) had obtained from the Liverpool Wedding Show which we went to on Saturday. We were evacuated and had to seek warm drinks elsewhere but that’s a story for another day.

So, I’m not going to talk about pricing because we all know that everyone will shop around for the best price themselves but if you do know where I can get it on the cheap, please oh please let me know!


Okay, let’s start with the packaging. I really like this packaging. It makes it look expensive  (which we could argue that it is but never mind). It has a mirror finish to it and just keeps to a simple, cylindrical bottle. There’s no patterns or changing of texture. I just like the simplicity. The name in capitals makes me think that this mascara means business too.


Now, the wand is quite different as it twists round which made me question whether it would get all my lashes but apparently so! It’s actually the first mascara I’ve used that looked like it had coated every lash. I will add that I had the Benefit’s They’re Real Tinted Primer on before using this so this may have assisted in my results.

I am super impressed with this little mascara though. It does what it says on the tin and really gives volume. I felt like my eyes were the centre of attention and I loved it because I always like to draw attention to my eyes but I feel that most mascaras draw it in the wrong way.

I will say that it did come off a little under the eye but I had added it to my bottom lashes so I think from now on that’s a no-no.

Has anyone else used this or do you have it? What are your thoughts? Any tips for using it?
