004Hey lovelies! I’ve been seeing this little sort of tag floating around the internet recently, and I thought I might as well join in the fun! I’m ill again today, so it’s a perfect opportunity to just try and write down some of my thoughts and rambles whilst trying to recover!

1. Blending foundation: Okay, I recently bought some Real Techniques brushes to help me blend all my foundation and other skin-y stuff in properly, so this is hopefully helping, but I just find myself spotting weird orangey patches on my skin when it definitely shouldn’t be there! Hmmm, help me someone.

2. Contouring: Ugh, okay I have to admit to just randomly rubbing on bronzer, blush and highlighter in places where I think it looks all right. I’m definitely not skilled at it at all. I try, oh I really do, but I’m no genius when it comes down to it.

3. Eyebrows: Urm, no. I cannot do it. I like to use eyeshadow to fill them in (I found an amazing shade that matches my hair colour in a Rimmel London trio!) and sometimes they turn out fine…But other times it just ends up awfully. Anyone have any tips?!

4. Skin care: I don’t care as much as I should when it comes down to skin-care. All I really do is pop on a facemask occasionally, wash my face, put on some spot cream and moisturise. I don’t even need moisturiser because my skin is normally all teenager-y and greasy (ew.) That’s how simple it is! I know I don’t even need to do that much stuff to my face, but I just feel so lazy…

5. Nails: I just don’t care for them at all. Sometimes I like to go all out and actually paint them, but I’m so rubbish at carefully applying nail varnish neatly, and I never get away with them painted at school, so I don’t see any point in them for me!

Up above is a picture with all my every-day make-up on, so you can see exactly what I’m talking about…

130710Hey lovelies! Sooo, this is a bit late, and this was supposed to go up quite a while ago, because the lovely Kavi tagged me in it, which was so lovely and made my day, so go check her blog out now!

Blue: Okay, how beautiful is this Karl Lagerfeld: Sun, Moon and Stars perfume?! The bottle gives off a really mature vibe, with cute little moon and stars carved around the bottle! The smell is perfect for night-time and going out for a party or meal, because it’s quite a heavy perfume, and smells quite wintry (even though it’s Summer!)

Purple: Right, yep another perfume, but oh well. I just HAD to include this Stella perfume! This is another equally cute bottle, and seems very feminine. It smells so sweet and flirtatious, which is just perfect for these Summer months!

Red: I always talk about this…I know. But seriously, the Revlon Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon is such a versatile make-up item that goes with anything and everything! (Can you call a make-up item versatile?!) But anyway, I wear this nearly everyday, and I’ve had such lovely compliments on the colour, so this is just my must-have lip item!

Green: So the normal Simple Facial Wash is just an essential for smoothing and softening my skin whilst washing in the morning and at night! It lathers nicely, and makes my skin glow!

Yellow: All of the products from the Power of Plants Botanics range at Boots are just perfect for bath time, and I just randomly picked this one out!

Orange: I talk about this all the time too, but oh well. REN face mask. YES.

I tag YOU!

Hello everyone! So, I feel like I haven’t posted in ages…I’ve just been so busy, but I shall quickly update you on everything!

So, yesterday I actually went up to London for the day with my family and spent the day looking round the Natural History museum and Science museum! I actually love it there…They’re both so interesting. As for today, well, I went shopping! Me and my friends went shopping and I’m now just sososo tired! Bleurghhh. I was so tired yesterday too. I fell asleep on the train, and just went to bed at 9.15…Which made me wake up at 7.15 today, and just watch Toy Story! Haha. So, I bought a L’Oreal GlamShine Stain Splash in the colour 002 Princess, a Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer in the shade 010 Ivory, a Rimmel London Apocalips in the colour 400 Big Bang and also a Revlon Lip Butter in the colour 063 Wild Watermelon!

006I’m here for another tag! I found this on Ingrid (missglamorazzi’s) channel, and I’ve seen it everywhere, so I thought I might join in, as it looks like a lot of fun!

1. Favourite spring nail polish?

I’ve actually just mentioned this in my last post, and it’s the Love & Beauty Forever 21 bubblegum pink coloured polish!

2. What is your must-have lip color this spring?

I like nudes, but I might go for a coral, or light red or pink, but at the moment I’ve been using the Natural Collection lip stick in the colour Rose Bud…Look out for a review soon!

3. Show us your favorite spring dress!

I don’t really wear dresses that much to be honest, and only really ever wear them to special occasions, but I always bring this long floaty dress/top to the beach to put over my bikini, if this counts? (Picture at the top)

4. What’s your favorite flower?

Roses! What a cliché, but roses have always been my favourite spring/summer flowers!

5. Favorite spring scarf/accessory?

Sunnies are a must, and I also have a cute pink bird scarf which is perfect for spring! Bows are so cute too!

6. What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, fashion or both!)

Brights and neons (lip colours, nail polishes and fashion) and also big, bold prints and florals!

7. Favourite spring candle?

I actually need to stock up on candles to decorate my room with, as I only have one at the moment, and it doesn’t really smell of anything! But my mum always seems to be burning nice scents, like florals or vanilla, so maybe something like that!

8. Favourite body spray/perfume for spring?

I actually just talked about this in my last post too! I like all of Natural Collection and So…?’s body sprays as they’re so uplifting and light!

9. What is spring like where you live?

At the moment it feels like Winter, with the occasional flicker of sunlight, but last year it was so hot and beautiful, with flowers, bees and the gorgeous sun and sky!

10. What’s your favourite thing about spring?

Looking forward to days at the beach, long strolls in the park, picnics in the garden, and changing your wardrobe!

11. Are you a spring cleaner?

Well, I’m re-organising my room and wardrobe at the moment, and I’ll be stocking up on new spring fashion finds, and make-up, so I suppose in a way?!

12. Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?

No, not really, but I want to have a few beach days, trips to London and shopping with friends, but I think in the Summer break we might go camping or to France!

I hope you enjoyed this and also try this out! I would tag Megan from mynamesmegan, but she’s already done this, so I’ll just tag Shona from freshbeautyxox!

1. Favourite sound?

My favourite sound is probably rain, running bath water, or the sound of waves on the sea! Sounds so beautiful. Also any music…

2. Favourite smell?

Freshly mowed grass, roses, wintry scents and the smell of burning wood whilst cosying up on the sofa!

3. Favourite texture/feel?

I love the feel of silk, and also faux-fur wooly blankets and gilets!

4. Favourite taste/food?

Chocolate…NOM. I also love crisps and chips…And battered fish…Guilty pleasures.

The beach, or beautiful landscapes and cliffs, with the sun setting in the background…Such a great feeling…Can’t wait ’till Summer!

I felt like doing another tag straight away, as they’re so fun to do! So I tag everyone…But I would love for http://thecoyotethistle.com/, http://noellescloset.wordpress.com/ and http://joannaloves.com/ to do this tag especially! Bye for now!

1) How long does it take you to edit/write a post?

It depends on what I’m doing really! If I need to spend a long time preparing it, snapping pictures, or finding pictures off the internet, it takes me a while, and also if I need to find prices or names of brands, etc. So posts like that take me about 30 minutes or an hour? But most posts I do take about 10 minutes or so!

2) Are you a spender or saver?

Hmmm, mostly a spender, because I save money…To spend straight away…That make sense? Haha;)

3) What type of post do you enjoy writing/recording?

I love doing posts on different styles of fashion, and fashion crazes! I find them so fun, and I love finding out new trends!

4) Do your friends and family know about your blog/channel?

A few of my close friends know about it…And most of the people in my year I think…Haha;) But only a few of my family know about it, and they can be really supportive which is lovely!

5) Are you most likely to buy a bag or a pair of shoes?

Hmmm, probably shoes, because I have an obsession with cute booties and statement trainers…I’ve never been that into bags…I really need to invest in some new bags though!

6) What clothing item do you wear way too much?

My two denim shirts/jackets, I pair with everything! I actually saw a girl yesterday wearing such a cool outfit…She was wearing a denim jacket paired with a tartan scarf…IN LOVE. I also love plaid shirts and leather jackets!

7) Are the outfits you post really what you wear in public?

Yes! I only really post my personal Sunday OOTD outfits, but I really do wear them!

8) Who or what inspired you to start your blog/channel?

Well I love fashion and beauty, and I’m always giving tips and tricks to people, or reading magazines, so my aunty and cousin told me that I should write a blog! I already read shinythoughts, wishwishwish and arabellag, so I thought, “yeah! I love writing, and I might want to be a journalist or writer for a magazine when I’m older, so why not?!” People who still inspire me today, will have to be zoella, sprinkleofglitter, tanyaburr, fleurdeforce, macbarbie07 and stilababe09, as I love watching their videos, and reading their blogs!

9) Whats your style mantra?

I actually don’t know! I have lots of different styles incorporated into my wardrobe…I have pieces for every occasion, season and style…It depends what I feel like! My friends say I have quite a vintage look, with some edgy and girly elements though!

I hope you enjoyed this first, proper tag I’ve ever done! I was fortunately tagged by http://noellescloset.wordpress.com/, and I’m so grateful, as this was such a fun tag to do! I tag everyone…But I would love for http://fashionforlunch.wordpress.com/ and http://evelinagalli.com/ to do this tag especially! Bye for now!
