Primark makeup sponge review

IMG_9803

Hey lovelies,

So as you probably saw from my last blog post, I have recently popped into Primark. Whilst I was there, I was really intrigued by the makeup section. I have heard so many different things about the Primark beauty range and I just had to give something a go for myself. Now I used to be obsessed with my Real Techniques sponge, and i used it every single time I wore makeup. After a while though, no matter how much you wash it, it gets rather dirty, the stains stop coming out and overall it doesn’t seem particularly hygienic. So I ended up throwing away my beloved sponge and just never seem to repurchase it. So anyway, when I saw this pack of 4 sponges for £2.50 (absolute bargain am i right?) I just had to grab them – and in my basket they went.

Now I have been testing out these sponges for just over a week and I’m going to write about my final verdict here for you. Continue reading

June Haul

Hey lovelies,

So last weekend, my mum and I popped out for a bit of shopping. I needed some bits and bobs before my holiday and she just wanted to have a little nosey around.

So the first shop I wanted to have a look in was Primark.

I knew for my holiday, I really wanted a backpack. I am so disorganized and I thought for the airport it would be the best thing to keep all my bits and bobs in the same place. There were quite a few different styles so I had a bit of trouble choosing. In the end I picked this beige coloured one. It has one big compartment and then a small one at the front. The bottom zip isn’t a real pocket. It is made from a faux leather, the hardware is a copper colour, and the straps are material. This bag was £10 which is an absolute steal! Continue reading

What to do on a miserable day

Hey lovelies,

So I know that I haven’t written a post in quite a while, which I am really bummed about. I have been super busy and to be honest kinda lacked the motivation to write. But I am back so here we go.

Now I don’t know about where you live, but about a fortnight ago here in England we had lovely weather. I was packing the jumpers away and grabbing my floral skirts, but for the past week it has been nothing but rain *thumbs down*.

So in light of this I thought I would write a post about all the great things you can do on a a miserable day: Continue reading

Day 7 Ponytails: A Simple Sunday Look

Hairstyle 7 6

Hey lovelies,

So here we are, the last day of my mini series. I really hope you have enjoyed reading, I certainly have enjoyed writing. It has really opened my eyes to the things I need to work on for my blog – like my pictures- and things I think I do well.

So for the last ponytail of the week, this is just a simple look for a casual Sunday. As the weather is (meant to be) getting warmer, I thought this look would be a great for a day trip somewhere if you’re perhaps wearing a gorgeous hat or something. As it’s a low ponytail it doesn’t disrupt the look. Continue reading

Hey lovelies,

Day 4 of my mini-series. How are we there already? Who knows, but who cares because it’s nearly the weekend!

Today’s ponytail is a lovely, simple, sweet side ponytail. So easy and can be done in a matter of seconds. Seriously though you could probably do this in about a minute and a half. Thank god for that because any time less spent getting ready means more time in bed! Continue reading

So let’s jump into it! Continue reading
