Lil catch up

 

IMG_0726

Hey Lovelies,

So I thought I would just write a quick lil post just explaining why I have’t published a post in a while.

The last month or so has been completely crazy for me, an abolsute whirlwind.

Within the space of 2 weeks I: left my job, had a 2 week holiday and came back to a new house due to my family moving.

As you can imagine this has been rather hectic and -much to my dismay- my blog hasnt been at the forfront of my mind.

I promise to you all though that I am already wrting some posts and can’t wait to start getting my creative juices flowing again.

Thank you for reading this and don’t forget to hit the follow button if you want to stick around for more posts with actual decent content.

Speak soon

xoxo

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

NPVY0926

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

Lil catch up + plans for the week

Hey lovelies,

So I know I haven’t written a blog post in over a week *sad face*. As much as I love writing on – which I really do- I have kinda got all caught up in life at the moment. I had a busy weekend absolutely filled of amazing fun (yes it did include a Ferris

wheel -down below!) and then in the week I was trying to sort out plans for next year (which I will hopefully tell you all about very soon!). And of course everything was very hectic at work. So this all equaled to no blog posts.

Hey lovelies,

So i’m guessing as you’re reading this you are quite into fashion (probably an understatement for some of you 😉 ). And you’re probably the type of people that love buying clothes. Probably a lot of clothes! This is great until you need somewhere to store them! Keep reading to find out more! Continue reading

How I (try to) control my wavy/curly hair

 

curly hair straight hair

This blog post is going to be all on how I (try to) control my wavy/curly hair, any products I use and tips for any of you other crazy haired girls and guys out there.

After wasting probably hundreds of pounds on products I’ve seen on on Youtube which claim to sort out curl patterns and decrease frizz by 100%, I decided I was kind of lost with my hair at that time. After the hours I spent with masks on and waiting for products to come from different countries and yet no luck with working for my hair, I packed it all in and decided I would try and wear my hair smooth most of the time. This was working really well for quite a while, until I started to miss my curls. I missed the compliments and the gorgeous curly hairstyles I’d found on Pintrest.

A few weeks ago I was going through my boxes of hair products, and found a shiny pink bottle of mousse at the bottom (Umberto Gianni Shapely Curls Defining Mousse). Continue reading

Lush Ultrabland Review

So this is going to be a rather chatty review on one of my absolute holy grail skin care products. The ‘Ultrabland’ facial cleanser by Lush.

Now on my journey to using cruelty free products I realized I needed a new way to take my makeup off. I had recently ventured away from the face wipes and started looking into better ways to clean my skin. I had started using Micellar water and that had been going great. My problem came when I was trying to find a cruelty free option that didn’t break the bank. I happened to be watching a YouTube video (sorry can’t remember who) and it was all about their favourite Lush products. They then mentioned, my now beloved, ‘Ultrabland’. Continue reading
