Get pampered and ready with me!

Hi guys! I’ve had a pretty busy few weeks so I thought that today I would relax and take a little time to focus on myself.

I took inspiration from Carli Bybel and started by making myself a smoothie to make me feel good on the inside.

For this I used frozen rhubarb, one banana, one kiwi, a ton of spinach, a splodge of honey and a little bit of milk and water to make it creamy but not be just dairy. Sometimes I use unsweetened soy or almond milk but I wanted the calcium today sooo yeah. It tastes super yummy and refreshing so is great first thing in the morning or any other time when you need a little pick-me-up.

I then used the Herbal Essences Bee Strong hair mask and my fave Avon Pore Penetrating Mineral Face Mask and sat on my bed with my big fluffy dressing gown on whilst I let them do their magic. I like to catch up on any missed blog posts or youtube videos during this time, at the minute I am really loving this baes blog (and her new hair).

See? There I am, chilling.

After washing off my face mask I used this hand treatment that I found for 99p! You just leave the gloves on for 20 minutes et voila! I just rubbed in what was left on my hands and then rinsed off the excess because I had been rubbing my hands for ages.

While running my bath I decided to have breakfast food for lunch because it is my favourite. I just made some porridge and added a teaspoon of chocolate spread and then a sliced a banana, cinnamon, cocoa powder, a drizzle of honey and some chunky peanut butter on top. SO GOOD

I decided to use the last purchase from my lush haul which is the “Granny Takes A Dip” bath bomb. I’m gonna miss smelling this every time I open my drawer. It is so ‘citrusy’ and spicy, I could eat it.

It also looks amazing as you pop it into your bath, the colour literally explodes, however my bath just looked pink rather than a mix of the different colours.

Its still super lovely and makes my skin feel amazing though! I then tidied up my eyebrows and put my make up on before drying my hair and throwing it up into a bun.

You can hardly see my eye shadow here but I will put a picture up on my insta if you want to see my make up on a worse camera but not as washed out.

I then took a little trip to the shops and bought some things for Christmas so lemme just show you them real quick.

DSC_0140

I got 2 big snowmen and 1 santa from Thorntons to go with peoples gifts, they were half price AND on 3 for 2- so £10 all together!!!

I then got my Mum some tea lights to give her them on Christmas Eve and then two samplers for my room.

DSC_0142

Then I picked my cousin up some make up for her to play with as she’s only 12 but being related to me she loves make up. I have the Heaven & Earth palette from MUA and the pigmentation is amazing so I thought that she would love this.

And since everything was on 3 for 2 I bought myself some early Christmas presents. I will probably review the B. Replenished facial oil, I think that it will be my saviour with this cold weather but we will see! This lip combo is so vampy and dark, I have a feeling I am going to wear this all the time in winter.

Its like the perfect amount of purple and red. If you want to recreate this it is, Max Factor “Mulberry” lipstick and Collection “Damson” lip liner.

And that is about it! I am just going to go for my singing lesson now and just chill later on and watch I’m a Celeb- I also bet my Mum that Gemma would go out in the first week, she owes me a pound. Goodbye for now little buns!

award

“Sisterhood of the World Bloggers” AND “One Lovely Blog” Awards!

Okay so because I am too lazy to make two separate posts I am just going to bundle these into one! I also want to get another post out today if possible (if not, maybe Sunday?) which is going to take some time so doing these together just seemed like a fun idea. And look a picture of me from around about the time I started my blog, aw. So thank you to both Mimi and Lara for nominating me for these awards! If you haven’t checked these guys out already- go do it now! Aaaaand then please come back and read my post…please?

Sisterhood of the world bloggers questions!

1. What is your favourite eye shadow palette?
HOW on Earth am I supposed to choose?! There are so many weird and wonderful palettes out there so I don’t know if I have a favourite! I would say the palette I use the most is my urban decay naked 3 palette, especially in the Autumn/Winter time.

2. Drugstore or high-end makeup brands?
These questions aren’t easy, huh? Because I am only 17 the majority of my collection is from the drugstore but there is just something so luxurious about high-end products that I love. I wouldn’t know how to choose between the two!

3.  Favourite concealer?
The concealer I always go back to is the “collection lasting perfection”, which I am sure you have all heard billions of times before, but I am yet to find a concealer that I truly love.

4. What’s the best mascara you own?
For overall wowness and staying power I would have to say the Benefit They’re Real! mascara. Buuuuut I am a fan of the Avon Supershock for my top lashes, just not the bottom because it comes right off.

5. What’s the best product you own under £4?
It’s going to have to be my Nivea Lip Butters. They are so creamy and, well…buttery.

6. If you could only wear one type of product eg. foundation, mascara, lipstick etc, for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
Either brow zings by Benefit or any type of mascara. If I was allowed to dye my eyebrows then probably mascara.

7. Biggest weakness when buying makeup?
I just want everything.

8. What’s your favourite shade of lipstick/gloss?
Although I love lip products I tend to stick to my lip balms on a day to day basis. For a good all-rounder I would so recommend the Revlon Lip Butter in “Berry Smoothie”, I always go back to it.

9. Coloured eye-liner – yay or nay?
Waterline- no, white all the way (on myself). However on my actual lid I think it looks pretty swanky.

10. What’s your everyday skin care routine?
I have a post on this here! But to be honest sometimes I am far too tired to do this whole routine before bed. I recently bought some face wipes by Cherish called “Ageless Cleansing Wipes” and I love them! My skin feels so soft and my pores are tightened and some days, well, most days all I am using is one wipe and then going straight to bed and I can’t believe how nice my skin looks! I’m sure I got these for something ridiculous like £1.

One Lovely Blog- 7 facts about me!

1. I have done a 50 Facts About Me post here!

2. I get very attached very quickly.

3. Almost everything gives me anxiety.

4. I have no off switch, no matter who I am around I am still an absolute weirdo. This paid off at a party though, I won’t say anything now just in case I am making a mountain out of a molehill but I will keep you all updated!

5. Sometimes my skin just falls off my fingers, no biggie.

6. I don’t know what I want to do in life. I can’t see myself comfortably in any type of job, I just know that I love to sing and play with make up.

7. I go to a pub quiz every week and we always make our name quiz related- for example, Quizteama Aguilera, Quiztopher Columbus, Agatha Quizteam. We also won last night as Quiz Tarrant.

Now here comes the nominations part. I’m not really a fan of doing this because I think that each and every one of you deserves nominations for both of these awards- so, I nominate every single one of my followers for these awards if you haven’t been nominated already! Especially new blogger Joelle! Goodbye for now little buns!

Mini Haul!

So I went to get a cleanser and game back with a bit more- and pizza! To be quite honest I’m surprised that I came back with the cleanser because normally I forget what I actually went for. So- let’s dive right in!

DSC_0082

The first thing I picked up was this absolute beauty. I don’t know how or why it works but I know that I love it. For someone with super sensitive skin this is great. There are no perfumes or alcohol (that I know of) in the product so it doesn’t irritate or dry out my skin. It also removes ALL of my makeup so effortlessly! And it’s hypoallergenic. It was around £5 but for a cleanser that I loooove in a 400ml bottle, who cares? Not me.

DSC_0083

My second purchase was the Collection Lasting perfection concealer in “fair”. I wouldn’t say that this completely covers up my under eye circles but I am yet to find any product that does. It is fairly lightweight and very easy to blend, Its not particularly pink as well which I love because most pale products are pink toned and that just annoys me. This is my third tube so I must like it. I think this was about £3 but I don’t know because I binned the receipt immediately. REMOVE ALL EVIDENCE.

DSC_0084

The next two things I picked up were top coats. I love the idea of making any of my nail varnish matt so I picked up one matt top coat and one normal one! They were both about £4 each, not bad, eh? The one on the right is also a base coat and a nail hardener- bonus! These are both by Barry M because I just LOVE their nail varnishes, especially the gelly nails, I can’t get enough of them! If you don’t own any Barry M product please try any of the gelly nails colours, please? I promise you will fall in love.

This next thing I got is kinda random. My Dad loves this anti-perspirant but won’t buy it because its nearly £4. I felt like I should buy him something because the other day I went to go the loo and my phone fell out of my pocket and some how slid underneath the bath, meaning he had to take off the side panel to get my phone out. He won’t let me get him chocolates so now he can smell nice instead.

DSC_0086

I got these two for my little cousin, she’s like the sister I never had. Because she’s only 12 I don’t want to full on splurge on makeup for her but I did pick these two up….and order an eyeshadow and concealer palette online, whoops.  These were only £1 each! The lipstick is a gorgeous creamy coral colour in the shade “nectar”- cute – and the blusher is, as you can see, a plain pick colour in the shade “bubble gum”. I am so happy that they have started to properly name their products instead of them just being numbers, go MUA! 

DSC_0087

Whilst I was in that section I spotted this matt lipstick. I got it in the colour “wild berry” as I am loving dark grungey colours at the moment. I know that I am going to wear it constantly in Autumn and Winter! I was a little disappointed when I swatched it though.

It is still a beautiful colour, but just not as dark as I had hoped, at all. 

And that is it! If you were wondering what colour nail varnish I had, well, have on it is just the Barry M matt black- surprise, surprise. I hope you enjoyed this post and are having a great day, goodbye for now little buns!
