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?


Topshop Smoke Sticks Review!

Good Afternoon!

As I mentioned in my post about Topshop Magic Liner, I had purchased three Smoke Sticks as they all came together in a lovely, sparkly box. All together, the set cost £10 instead of £20 and I discovered that usually a smoke stick costs £6.50 so I’m very chuffed 😀

I’ve never really owned a product like this before and at first I wasn’t sure how it would work for me. They can look a bit daunting at first as they are so thick and give a good depth of colour and you wonder about how difficult it would be to a) make a mistake and b) easily rectify said mistake.

Anyway, the colours I purchased were Dark Horse (left), Conspire (middle) and Deviant (right).

I feel that the smoke sticks offer colours which you would associate with a smokey eye even though I feel that these are harder to blend with eyeshadows to reach that effect. They make a wonderful base for your eyeshadow though, if you want it to pack that extra punch! I also think they are fantastic for lining the corner of the eye for a bit of extra sparkle too, or just under the lash line but I would prefer to use the darkest shade for that. I feel that these wouldn’t quite be the best thing for just a natural look because of the statement they make but they’ll make you look hella glamorous!

Sadly, I’m pretty sure that the colours of the sticks are/were limited edition as I can’t see them available to purchase as individual items which is a shame because they’re gorgeous. 

Has anyone else used or purchased these? What do you think about them? Do you have any tips for using them? Let me know!
