What I Got For Christmas 2014

Sunday, 28 December 2014

It's that time of year again, everyone likes to share what they've been given for Christmas and look for things they'd like to get themselves, so I guess all the 'What I Got For Christmas' posts and videos are just inspiration.

Let's start off with make up...
My lovely friend went on a big mission, MAC's 'Velvet Teddy' lipstick, the infamous lipstick Kylie Jenner uses. She is magical enough to get hold of it and give it to me as a gift!
My lovely boyfriend spoilt me and got me Benefit's 'They're Real' mascara and Smashbox's Photo Finish Primer, two of my favourite make up products.
I also received Rimmel's Scandeleyes liner in 005 Nude, which I'm excited to try.

Being obsessed with Frozen a jokey present I got was a Frozen hand wash, I'm secretly in love with this present, shhhh.
My nan swears by Ted Baker Body Souffle, she says it's one of the best she's tried, which makes me incredibly excited to try it.
Avon's Bubble Bath in Winter Rose smells b-e-a-u-tiful, roses are my favourite flowers, so this bubble bath is a dream.
Another Avon product I got given was a Far Away shimmering talc, I'm looking forward to seeing what the outcome looks like.

Knitted tights are a fashion love of mine, warm, cosy and fashionable; so I always need lots of pairs of these.
Cosy socks are my love, these ones are especially cute, I'm loving the patterns and colours.
This cutie is a 'Hottie' from Dorothy Perkins, his tummy comes out, you can microwave it and put it back and it keeps you lovely and warm.

Ahhhh, Michael Kors certainly knows how to make wonderful products, but the bracelet is wonderfully beautiful to match the watch I got last year.

I have become a bit of a perfume addict lately, so I was super excited to get this amount of them and all of them being favourites of mine; Lacoste Pink, Chanel No 5, Charlie Pink and Paradisiac Florale.

I was a very lucky girl again this year, so thank you to everyone who got me a gift :)

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, have a fabulous and safe new year x

Complete Christmas Gift Guide 2014

Sunday, 16 November 2014
Christmas is approaching and it seems everyone is Christmas shopping early this year.
I've spoken to many people who have already finished their Christmas shopping (whereas I'm know where near). 

I'll be doing female gifts, male gifts, children's gifts and pet gifts! So hopefully this helps and covers a wide range.

Female gifts: Anything with Michael Kors on is a complete win, but their beautiful watches are just a classic piece of jewellery that never goes out of fashion.

The Benefit Christmas gift sets are perfect for any make up lover, with a wide range of sets and prices of them, decorated prettily for Christmas.

Onesies have been a crazy trend the past few years, there are so many different ones you can find, a few of my favourite places to them from are; F&F at Tesco, Primark, M&S and Topshop.

It's the best selling perfume in the world, Chanel no5. Every girls dream perfume! I'll be biased as it is my all time favourite perfume, but it really is a scent that suits all women and it's one I feel every woman should have at least once in her lifetime. 

Male gifts: A lot of men/boys are obsessed with shoes, they all want the newest Nike shoes just released and what better time to treat them to a pair? Sports Direct always do great deals on Nike shoes.

Who doesn't ever need more socks? You can get any type suited to the person and a wide range of prices. Perfect stocking filler!

I thought this was such a cute idea for a chocolate lover, making a chocolate bar bouquet type present. Lots of companies actually create these specially for the customer too.

Soap and Glory has got a great selection of men's gift sets this Christmas. Another company who has done a good wide variety of size and prices.

Frozen once again is THE trend for kids this Christmas. Every bit of stock, in every shop is being quickly bought. So many shops have got any sort of Frozen merchandise from pencils, to clothes, to toys. So many little girls will be wanting Frozen gifts (secretly I wouldn't mind them either ;) ).

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been a hit movie, I really enjoyed it. I can only assume lots of little boys would be thrilled with a Mutant Ninja Turtle of some sort on Christmas morning.

A Nintendo 3DS would be a very big present, but there are a big variety of games for all ages, boys and girls. It's one of those presents the kids will certainly love.

Another chocolate present is on the list: Hotel Chocolat do the best seasonal style chocolates and kids will love them.

Pets: It's very mixed opinions when people discuss buying pets gifts for Christmas, me personally? I think pets are apart of the family and should have a least a little treat or something. I always get my dog Bonnie lots of Christmas presents because I love spoiling her.
Pets at Home are brilliant for Christmas gifts for pets; click here to go to their website!

I hope this gave to a bit of Christmas shopping inspiration.

What do you want for Christmas this year?

REVIEW: Make Up Revolution

Tuesday, 20 May 2014

Hey everyone.

Make Up Revolution is the newest hype around and I'm lucky enough to join the hype and try their products.

Starting off with the blusher in 'Sugar'.
This is the perfect pink colour to give your cheeks that natural flushed look, a small amount goes a long way. It would suit all skin colours and leaves you looking fresh (even if you don't feel it.)

This gorgeous nail polish in 'Adore' is a great polish, perfect for Spring/Summer. It only needs two coats and leaves a lovely shine, it also doesn't chip until about the third day. The only thing is wasn't to keen on the the brush, but never the less that shouldn't stop you from getting the polishes as it really isn't a big concern.

Next is an eyeshadow in 'Adore Moi' - What a gorgeous colour, it is just the right eyeshadow for a smokey eye and I've fallen in love with this product. I can't even describe how pigmented this product is.

Ultra Black Amazing Mascara is a great everyday mascara, it's very black which I like and the brush gives your eyelashes a lovely lift, it doesn't lengthen them very much; but enough for an everyday look. 

I'm a big sucker for red lipsticks and when I saw this my my package I was very excited to try it, the shade is called 'Twist'. This product really didn't disappoint, it is a completely different shade of red I have ever tried and it gorgeous. The formula is really creamy and easy to apply and lasts on your lips for a very good amount of time.

Kylie Jenner Lip Tutorial

Wednesday, 14 May 2014
Hey everyone.

Massive apology as I haven't posted in waaaay over a week, due to not having internet for 7 days; but I'm back with this post I hope you all like.

There has been a lot of hype on the internet over whether Kylie Jenner has had something cosmetically done to her lips, or if they're natural. Either way it's her business and I love the look, so I've found 3 drugstore products to get the desired look.

I like to start off my moisturising my lips and I hear Kylie Jenner is a fan of EOS, so I had to use an EOS lip balm in 'Sweet Mint'.

To start the lip look of I used 'Rimmel's Lasting Finish' lip liner in 'Tiramisu', I lined my outer lip and inner lip. You can go over your natural lip line a little bit to give off that you have fuller lips ( I did myself) 

The 3rd and final product I use to get the look is a 'Rimmel Lasting Perfection Lipstick: Kate Moss Collection (113)' and I just cover my lips with this.

Here is the finished look:

I hope you liked this re-creation and be sure to stay tuned to my blog as I have lots of exciting posts coming soon.

Peace Out.

Review: Essie Nail Polish // Status Symbol

Saturday, 26 April 2014

Hey everyone.

This post is going to be a short and sweet one about Essie's nail polish in the colour 'Status Symbol'.

Essie nail polishes are my favourite nail polishes and I have tried many brands before, but it's something about their formula that gives you that manicure finish. The brush to apply the polish is one of the best, picks up enough of the polish and applied perfectly. Even without a base coat or top coat it really doesn't chip much at all, let alone with a base and top.

I feel this is a perfect bright, vibrant pink to go with a tan, especially in the Summer.

Can you recommend any of your favourite Essie colours for me to get?

Peace Out.

Selena Gomez Inspired Make Up

Friday, 18 April 2014

Hey everyone.

I've always been a fan of Selena Gomez ever since I was little watching her on Disney channel. I am always inspired by her make up looks, with seems quite similar a lot of the time; so I wanted to do a step by step post on how I got this look. 

Here are all the products and tools I used!

Here is after I applied a layer of foundation and concealer (I also primer my whole face and eyes). In this next picture I applied a natural powder.

Here I lightly filled in my eyebrows, contoured to get that Selena Gomez bronzed look and added a light natural blush.

I used two neutral colours, a light creamy colour for the lid and brow bone, for the crease I use a dark brown. Then for the eyeliner I done a thin line of liquid for the top and pencil for the waterline. I used a couple of coats of mascara, top and bottom.

I used a bright red lipstick to finish off the look.

I was really happy with the finished look.

I hope you liked this re-creation! 

If you would like a more in depth tutorial let me know in the comments and I'll make a YouTube video?

Peace Out.

Review: Primark Beauty French Nails

Tuesday, 25 March 2014

Hey everyone.

I have a bit of a confession...I'm the biggest sucker for false nails, I know some people absolutely love them and others absolutely hate them; but for me I feel it's a right of a teenage girls passage too try them at least once.

I started wearing false nails when I was about 11 or 12 years old, some people would probably think it's too young of an age but at the time everyone at school was wearing them to I wanted to naturally join the trend. I'm 18 now so as you could probably imagine, I've been through plenty of brands.

I saw a lot of good things said about these ones from Primark, I saw they were a pound which made me think twice after paying a lot of money in the past for them. I caved a decided to buy a pack and I'm thoroughly pleased with them.

The actual nails themselves are really good quality and long lasting, the glue is just like something you'd pay around £3 for at a drugstore and all together they're a great and super affordable product, they last for 5-7 days and the packaging is fantastic, easy to travel around with you.

Do you like false nails?!

Peace Out.
