Hello everyone!
I hope you're all having a fantastic Christmas day and have got some lovely presents!
I've opened all of my presents from my parents, nan and boyfriend and I love them all! I will be posting a Christmas haul post very, very soon which I hope you'll all enjoy.
I thought I'd write you all a little post just wishing you all a Merry Christmas! Plus, I'm a little curious about what gifts you all received so please link any Christmas haul posts in the comments below. I'd love to check them out!
As I'm currently being very anti-social and Christmas dinner is soon to be ready, I'd better rush off and socialise whilst stuffing myself with so much food I can hardly move. Laaaavely!
Have a lovely day everyone, love you all!

Hello everyone!

As most of you will already know, tartan is quite possibly the biggest trend of this Autumn/Winter. It's effortlessly stylish, can be dressed up, or down for a more grunge-y look; it is flawless. Recently, it seems that almost everyone owns at least one tartan item in their wardrobe - and I don't blame them! I've become suddenly drawn to all things tartan, and I think it's becoming a slight addiction.
It's not all about your typical red tartan print either; I've ventured into the various depths of tartan print colours and I am loving it! 
As I have this undying love for tartan developing, I thought I would share with you my Top 10 Tartan clothing items on the highstreet and online this Winter!

Hello everyone!

After battling for hours with online photo editing software, my original post just won't turn out how I want it to! I'm still working on it, but I thought I'd do the Christmas Tag today instead, and put up my next post when photo software likes me again!

1.  Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
I've always grown up having a synthetic Christmas tree, so I suppose I prefer those. Although I would like to try a real Christmas tree one day, but it has to be just as bushy as my synthetic one!
2.  You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?
Definitely a hot chocolate. I'm don't like strong coffee, so I'm not quite daring enough to go for any Christmas special coffee from Starbucks quite yet. A hot chocolate with lots of cream and marshmallows would be just bliss for me!

3.  Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
I didn't actually get to help decorate the tree this year as I was working *cry*. But in the past, we've had a lovely deep green tree, with little silver and gold beads draped around it, and all sorts of coloured baubles hanging down. Oh, and of course some plain white flashing lights around it as well. And for the finishing touch, we'd usually have a nice star on the top of the tree! Although this year my parents decided we were having a white tree, with white lights and silver baubles... it does look pretty but I want the old style back!

4.  Giving or receiving?
I haven't had a job in the past so I've never had the money to buy many people Christmas presents. Of course I love opening all my presents, and, like a little kid, I get super excited before I open them! But this year I am really looking forward to be able to buy people little gifts and wrap them up all pretty!

5.  To mince pie or not to?
Not to. I think I've tried a mince pie once and I didn't like it... but my family love them so there will definitely be lots around on Christmas Day.

6.  What's your traditional Sunday lunch?
I'm answering this assuming that this is what a typical Christmas Day lunch would consist of, and not a weekly Sunday dinner. Sometimes we'll go to my nan's, sometimes my granddad's  but this year my nan and uncle are coming to my house! Obviously, we have turkey, roast potatoes, little sausages wrapped in bacon, stuffing, sprouts, parsnips etc... the generic Christmas lunch!

7.  Christmas day fashion
When I was younger I used to have a lovely red velvet skater dress which I would wear every Christmas day and I loved it! I'm currently seeking another similar one too. If I'm not actually doing anything though, I'll definitely just laze around in my pyjamas.

8.  What's your favourite Christmas song?
I can't pick one favourite, I love all Christmas songs! But definitely some Michael Buble, and then 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday' and 'All I want for Christmas is you'.

9.  What's your favourite Christmas film?
Most definitely Love Actually. That film makes me feel so happy and Christmassy, I've probably watched it over 10 times.

10.  Open presents before or after lunch?
Who leaves their presents until after lunch to open?! I don't think I could contain my excitement for that long! I open mine as soon as I wake up (which is usually very early).

I hope you enjoyed reading this and hopefully it got you into the Christmas spirit if you're not already! Feel free to do this tag for yourselves and leave me a comment linking to yours so I can have a little read.

Hello everyone!

Around Halloween time, I ventured out to my local Superdrug to pick up a few darker make-up items to complete my halloween look! I'd heard so many great things about the Rimmel Apocolips Lip Lacquer's and had been dying to try one out for myself. So, straight away I was drawn to these, where I spotted the shade 304 'Eclipse', and immediately picked it up and decided this was the perfect shade for halloween, yet also a lovely autumn colour! 

Rimmel have done really well in creating a very edgy and classy packaging to this product, which I think has a lovely effect to the whole 'Apocalips' theme and certainly makes it look almost exciting!

Now, the consistency of this product is just lovely! As most of you will be aware, a lip lacquer has a consistency in between a lip gloss and a lipstick, and this particular lip lacquer formula is super creamy and highly pigmented. The applicator is okay, but I find that sometimes the little well in the centre gets a little too much product collected in it, which can be a problem when it comes to the darker shades as you need a little less product and more precision and accuracy - so you have to be careful when applying.

The product isn't drying at all and moisturises my lips like a lip gloss would, and it isn't too sticky either! Despite all of the good things about this product, I was let down a little by the staying power. It will last an hour or so but will dry leaving a darker line around the outline of my lips. Now this is nothing a little top up won't fix, but when you just don't have the time, it can be slightly frustrating!

(Apologies for quality)
These pictures aren't quite capturing the intensity of the shade too well, but it is a lovely deep cherry shade and once applied leaves a shiny finish - much like a lip gloss!

Overall, I would say this product and shade is pretty damn great. For £6.49, I think it is brilliant value for what you are getting! The only downside for me would be the staying power, but this is the same for a lot of highstreet lip products. I'll most likely be picking up a few more in the near future!

Let me know what you think of this product and what shades you own or want to try :)

Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil Review

Hello everyone!

I'm sure you have all heard a lot about the Collection Work The Colour eyeshadow pencils, and if you haven't - where have you been hiding?! After reading a couple of reviews on this product, I decided I would try it out for myself and picked one up. I chose to get the shade 'Gunmetal Glitz', purely because I was going out that night and wanted to create a nice smokey eye. After hearing that these are creamy, extremely pigmented, long-lasting and easily blendable, I was expecting a lot from this product... but, I was disappointed! 

At only £3.19, this product is an absolute bargain and I would say it is definitely worth the money, despite my displeasure! After swatching it (see below) I was pleasantly surprised, it does give a deeply pigmented and creamy consistency, and it seemed to be incredibly blendable. But, when applying this product to my eyelids, it all seemed to go on a downward spiral. 

Now, I'm not sure whether I just have annoying eyelids or maybe I'm even applying it wrong, but I found I had to push far too hard on my eyelid to get enough product on to even be able to blend it. My poor little (or big) eyeball just can't handle too much pressure, so I found it took me AGES to get enough product to work with. Then, when it came to blending, I found that it just didn't want to budge! It just stayed pretty much the same as how I drew it on - which isn't a good look. After some hard work and about 15 minutes later, I managed to get a decent looking smokey eye... but I was not impressed in the slightest. My advice is, if you're going to use this product, use it as a base for your eyeshadow. I have found that it works well that way, but just this product on it's own, especially for the outer eyelid and crease, just doesn't work for me at all!

I don't think I have read one bad review on this product, so I'm slightly nervous about posting this. Has anyone else found this product to not be all it's made out to be?! 

Please comment below your thoughts on this product, and any tips on how you use it :)

Hey guys!

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been so busy with sixth form, and I just haven't had the chance to write recently. *cries*

I have a few posts coming up, but my camera and laptop haven't been getting along so as soon as they become friends again, some more fashion/beauty related posts will be up. So I decided I'd write a little lifestyle/how to post on interview nerves as I had my first ever job interview last Saturday and I GOT THE JOB!

So, everyone knows that nerves always kick in before a job interview, and if you've never had one before it's even more nerve-racking! Anyway, I got super nervous for my interview. As I had to wait over a week (nearly two!) until my interview I had so much time to worry and fret about it... and in the end there was absolutely no reason for me to be worrying.

You can never be certain on what questions you're going to be asked during your interview, and you don't always know what they are expecting of you, so these are my Top 5 Tips for preparing and dealing with the nerves!

1. Do some background research on the company. Most businesses will have an online website with an 'About' page with key bits of information & their values. Have a little read of that a day or two before your interview, find out things such as how many stores they have, how long they've been established & the values/things they believe in. This way, you could incorporate some of this into your answers, and if they ask a question about the company you won't be completely stumped!

2. Find some common interview questions which may come up & practice some answers. The question 'Tell me a bit about yourself' will more than likely come up so try and think of some at least slightly interesting things about yourself to tell. They just want to find out a little more about who you are & what you do.

3. Don't over prepare! This is easily done when your nerves are taking over. Over preparing can easily stress you out more, as you'll find more and more questions which you may not have an answer for & half the time, most of the questions don't even come up! As well as this, you don't want to over prepare so much that you're memorizing your answers & end up speaking like a robot!

4. Make sure you arrive on time/a bit early! Don't arrive too early (e.g 20 minutes early), but 5 or 10 minutes early is always good. It gives the employer a good first impression of you, being late will just stress you out even more about it and the employer will wonder whether you are always this way.

5. Dress appropriately! Depending on what sort of job you're being interviewed for will determine what you should wear. But if you're worried about what to wear, if anything, definitely go too smart than too laid back! You'll then look as though you've made an effort and a lot of employers get a huge idea of you by what you're wearing. I wore some dark navy trousers, a peach coloured blouse, some brown pumps and a blazer :)

I hope this helped any of you worrying about a job interview, but honestly, it's not as bad as it seems at all! I was worrying like there was no tomorrow about mine, and I got there and they were so friendly and I felt totally comfortable. Just smile, be friendly & polite and remember, you're not going to die! :)

A new beauty post will be up soon about a lovely giveaway I won by Libby at Life of Libby :)

Hello everyone!
As you may all be aware, during my trip to Milton Keynes a few weeks ago I managed to finally get hold of some Sleek products. I fancied trying out one of their lip products, and after reading various reviews, I opted for one of their pout polishes, and I am not disappointed. 

After some extremely hard decision making, I chose to get the colour 946 Electro Peach. I was a bit nervous in trying this colour as the shade looks very bright and almost neon coloured. But fear not! You can easily control how intense the colour looks on your lips - so don't turn away! This lip conditioner is a lovely orangey-coral colour when on the lips. With a small amount applied you will have only a slight coral tint, but I like to layer it up most of the time to create a highly pigmented, bold colour! I wasn't expecting it to be capable of giving such colour to your lips, so I was pleasantly surprised. An extra bonus is that it contains SPF 15, so it is super protective and nourishing to your lips.

But it doesn't stop there! This lip conditioner has a lovely texture and is slightly creamy, so it isn't uncomfortable to wear in the slightest. It isn't as sticky as most lip balms/lip glosses are so your hair won't be getting stuck to your lips in the wind quite so much - I know how annoying that can be!

But, one of my favourite things about this product has got to be the scent. It has a lovely vanilla scent to it which you can originally smell when it's first on the lips but it disappears soon after. I wouldn't say it has a taste to it personally, but I've read some complain about it's taste... so I'm not quite sure what they're on about.

My only dislike with this product is that it is not very long-lasting throughout the day. I find myself reapplying fairly regularly, although the colour doesn't get completely lost, for me it leaves a drab stain on my lips which I'm not too keen on. But despite this, I still love it and have found myself wearing it nearly every day since buying it, and for £4.49, what is there to complain about?!


Finally there are some rather pout-y pictures of me wearing the lip conditioner on my lips. I don't think my camera captures it too well but you can still see the colour.

So if you love a highly pigmented lip conditioner, this is a must for you. I haven't tried any of the other colours in the Sleek Pout Polish range, but I definitely plan to :) You can purchase this product here.

Hey everyone!

Just a quick little update to tell you that I decided to change my blog url as I really didn't like my old one!

If you followed me with bloglovin', I would appreciate it if you'd follow me again. Due to the url change I'm starting from scrath with my bloglovin' followers! I figured it would be better to do this now with minimal followers, as it would be better for me in the long run.

 River Island have revealed a few items from their AW13 Collection which will be appearing in stores shortly. Personally, I wasn't too keen on many of the things coming up, either because they're far too 'over the top' for me or they just wouldn't suit me at all! But these were a few of the items coming up which caught my eye. The range seems to include lots of lovely patterned items, bright & bold coloured tote bags and metallics. The range will definitely bring a lot of colour (and originality) into your autumn/winter wardrobe!

I love these studded, heeled brogues in a lovely metallic bronze colour. They're different to any other shoes I've seen before (mainly because of the amazing colour!) and can without a doubt be dressed up or down. Being super short at 5"4 they are also the perfect height for me as I can't walk in high heels at all. I'm not sure how much these will be but hopefully they won't be too expensive so I can own these beauties for myself!
The jumper also caught my eye massively, with different contrasting embroidered prints and the metallic detailing on the shoulders you would think it would all clash terribly. But in fact, it just all seems to work so well together and has a very vintage-esque look. And who doesn't love a patterned winter knit?!

Featuring many thick, cosy & snuggly winter coats, this is the one I am lusting for the most The deep berry red colour is such a classic autumn/winter colour and it compliments my tanned skin tone so nicely. Although, I reckon it will be a little on the pricey side so I may have a gander for a cheaper alternative.

Oh, how I love this bag. It's so bold and bright and would definitely make you stand out from the crowd if you're carrying this around in the winter!

And last but not least, back again with the gorgeous prints on this lovely dress. The pale pink colour is quite summery for an autumn/winter dress but that's why I like it. You could fool your summer blues away by wearing this dress with a thick knitted jumper and the collar poking out. You can still feel a little bit summery in the cold winter months!

You can have a look at the other items hitting River Island stores soon HERE

I think this new upcoming collection is definitely proof that a winter wardrobe doesn't have to be all doom and gloom... what do you guys think?

Love love,

TARTAN, FRILLS & LIP COLOUR: My September Wishlist

1 - Tartan Tee, £30.00, from Topshop. Tartan is right on trend this autumn/winter and this tee is perfect! I personally love the boxy looking fit of it and its a lovely tartan pattern. The only downside to it is the price, but it sure looks worth it!
2 - Lace Trim Ankle Socks, £3.50, Topshop. I'm sure everyone owns a pair of these socks, but I STILL don't own a pair for some strange reason. I just know these would look so cute paired with a pair of ankle boots and rolled up/cropped jeans this autumn!
3 - Black Disco Pants, £30.00, Miss Selfridge. Again, I STILL don't own a pair of black disco pants... or any colour disco pants for that matter. As much as I want a pair I have just never had the money! I can imagine pairing these with the Tartan tee from Topshop would look so gorgeous. They're just such a staple piece which can be dressed up or down so easily.
4 - Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Orange Punch, £7.99, Superdrug. I've swatched this product a gazillion times whilst being in Superdrug/Boots but I've just never actually bought it. The colour is so gorgeous and I've heard many within the beauty sphere raving about the Colour Boost Lip Crayon selection. Instead of leaving without it, I must get my hands on one of these during my next trip to Superdrug!!
5 - Black Cut Out Boots, £27.99, New Look. I'm in love the grunge-y look to cut out boots and I really want to pair these with some frilly socks/tights and a dress this autumn/winter. I saw these in a New Look store a couple of weeks ago but I was just a few pounds short... how annoying! :( And for £27.99, how can you go wrong?!

Comment and let me know what would be on your September wishlist!

Love love,

Monday, 2 September 2013


Hello everyone! Just over a week ago, me and my boyfriend went to Milton Keynes to do a little bit of shopping! When I saw that the superdrug there sold Sleek products, I knew I had to buy a few bits as I've heard so much about them within the beauty sphere. I knew their blushers are super raved about - seemingly by everyone - so I picked up the shade 'Flushed' for only £4.49! 

The first thing that stood out to me with this blush was how pigmented the colour looks! The shade is a deep berry shade with a little bit of shimmer (which doesn't show once applied), and it's beautiful. Others may shy away from how deeply pigmented it looks but you shouldn't - it gives such a lovely, natural, rosy-cheeked look. The best thing is, as it is so pigmented you only need a little bit on your brush (don't be too heavy handed, especially with lighter skin tones), so you know it's going to last you a while! 

It also has such a silky, smooth formation and compared to my Natural Collection Blusher it's so soft to touch. I also found that it's super easy to blend, so you're not going to look like a clown with little red circles on your cheeks!! 

I have used this blush every day for the past week and I am so utterly in love with it, it lasts all day despite the fact that I don't use a primer. It also has no scent to it so you won't be getting a whiff of a strange smell throughout your day. It's just wonderful!

Finally, for £4.49, who can go wrong?! With such chic packaging it looks like it would be much more expensive than this.

I also bought the much raved about Sleek Face Contour Kit in the shade 'Medium' for £6.49 as my skin is fairly tanned/olive toned. The Face Contour Kit consists of a bronzer and a highlighter, with a nice sized mirror in the (very SLEEK) packaging, which is brilliant for travelling!

The product comes with two sides, a larger side with the bronzing/sculpting powder, whilst the smaller side is a lovely highlighting powder. The only problem I found with the highlighter is that it doesn't seem to show up very much on my skin tone, but it's still lovely to use as it does add a little more brightness to my face.

The texture is certainly great and easy to work with. It is easily blend-able and as it isn't too powdery, it is easy to get the right amount on the brush without getting too much on the brush and turning yourself into an oompa loompa...

It is not really a bronzer you would use all over your face for a bronzing effect, it is definitely more suited as a contour. The colour of the contour isn't orange at all either, and suits my tanned/olive skin perfectly. You do have to make sure that you don't pile on too much though, a streak of brown across your face is not a good look... 

Here I swatched the blush and the contour quite heavily to really show just how pigmented they are! My camera just wouldn't pick up the colour of the highlighter so I gave up with that. As you can see, the blush can come out very heavy so you've got to be careful with it.

Let me know if you own either of these products and what you think of them :) 

I also have another sleek product I will be doing a separate review on fairly soon!

Hope you liked this post and don't forget to follow me with GFC and on bloglovin' :)

 Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation (£8.99), Sleek Face Contour Kit (£6.49), Sleek Blush in 'Flushed' (£4.49), Maybelline Colour Tattoo (£4.99), Maybelline Eyestudio in 105 'Rose Tint' (£.4.09), Rimmel Waterproof Gel Eyeliner (£6.49), Boots Natural Collection Eye Liner (£1.99), Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara (£4.99), Burt's Bees Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil (£3.69), Sleek Pout Polish in 'Electro Peach' (£4.49) = A grand total of £50.70!

It's weird to think that I've spent that much on my face... not including the other items in my make up bag?! I've never been a huge fan of high end make up as I know there are cheaper options out there which do the job just as well. Imagine what the total would have been if I ONLY used high end make up. It's crazy. It alls adds up in the end, even when you're buying bargains!

Liebster Blog Award

Well, I'm rather excited as I've been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by the gorgeous Beth at! Thank you so much :)

The Liebster Blog award is an award for bloggers who have less than 200 followers and deserve more recognition with their blog. It is a brilliant idea to help newer bloggers connect with other bloggers and help us to develop our blogs even further!

After doing some research and reading Beth's post on what the Liebster blog award is, I have gathered that these are the official rules of the award:

1. You must link back to the person who nominated you & thank them.

2. You must share 11 things about yourself.
3. You must answer the 11 questions given to you by your nominee.
4. You must choose 11 bloggers to nominate for the award (less than 200 followers on GFC) and notify them in a comment on their blog.
5. Finally, you must think of 11 questions for the bloggers you nominate to answer.

Eleven things about me:
1. I am just going in to my second year of sixth form studying Psychology, Philosophy and either English Lit or History (I don't know what to drop, help?!)
2. My skin is naturally tanned.
3. I eat way too much unhealthy food but I don't seem to put on weight... I'm just super unhealthy!
4. I love having my blog as a place to write about the things I enjoy and that make me happy.
5. I can be quite a quiet person when you first meet me, but it varies depending on the sort of person you are.
6. I worry far, far too much about things I don't even need to be anxious about, and it really upsets me.
7. I'm a bargain hunter!
8. I've been to New York on a school trip once... and it was amazing.
9. I don't own any MAC make up. ( :( )
10. I love romcoms, comedy and horror films. (Even though I'm scared of everything!)
11. Finally, the most interesting fact of the bunch... my birthday is on the 30th April (1996).

Questions for me from Beth:

1. What made you want to start a blog?
I have always enjoyed various formats of blogging, especially tumblr - I used to be addicted! But after watching Zoella, Tanya Burr & Louise (SprinkleofGlitter) and various other beauty/fashion guru's on youtube, I discovered that they began through a blog! So I thought I'd give it a go myself, as I enjoy blogging about all things fashion & beauty and I want to venture in to the world of fashion/beauty journalism!

2. What kind of posts do you most enjoy writing?
I can't even pick which posts I enjoy writing the most as I enjoy them all! That's a tough one... but I think I would really enjoy OOTD posts a lot, but I just need to invest in a better camera!

3. Do your friends and family know about your blog?
A few of my friends, my boyfriend and my mum and dad know about my blog. None of them read it though yet, I've not allowed them to, haha!

4. Where in the world would you most like to go on holiday?
This is also tough. If I was wanting a relaxing holiday probably somewhere like Greece. But if I wanted a more adventurous, busy holiday then somewhere like New York, LA or Australia.

5. What is your holy grail beauty product?
Probably blusher. It just brings so much more life into my face and if I only had one beauty product, that'd be it.

6. What is your favourite designer brand?
I'll be honest, I don't really own anything from a designer brand except for my Benefit 'They're Real' mascara... if that even counts as designer?!
