Winter Tag

Winter Tag
Hello,
Today I am going to be doing a winter tag I found online. 
I hope you enjoy <3 

What are your favourite things about Winter?
My favourite thing about winter is the warm and cosy jumpers as well as the fact that it's basically Christmas!

What is your favourite Winter outfit?
Currently it is my black cropped jumper with white text on the front from TopShop. 
Since I like to feel cosy, I wear black leggings and my Black Nike Roche trainers. 
To keep me warm in the cold temperatures, I put on my navy blue coat from TopShop.

What is your favourite Winter food?
I wait all year for a christmas dinner so that has to be my winter food fave. 

Favourite Winter drink?
Hot Chocolate with whipped cream and mini marshmallows... healthy

What is your dream way to spend a Winter’s day?
Watching movies with family/ friends in pyjamas. 
(It would be better if it were to snow outside :P)

How do you like to do your make-up in the Winter?
I like to make sure my face is moisturised so I use the Simple Face Moisturiser before I apply any makeup. Also, I usually like to go for a dark lipstick since you can get away with it at this time of year. My favourite right now is the Kiko Luscious Pink creamy lipstick.  

What are the first three things that remind you of Winter?
Hot Chocolate, Snow and Christmas!

What is your favourite Winter song?
Ariana Grande - Winter Things

I hope you liked this blog post.

Love you lots

MAC Lipstick Collection

MAC Lipstick Collection

Hey Guys!
Today I will be sharing with all of you my MAC lipsticks.
I have six and I love love love them all.
Hope you enjoy...


Mehr - Matte
This is a recent purchase of mine and I love the colour so much. It is a matte purple and looks so much nicer than you would expect.  My friend (Honor) had it before me and she nicely let me try it out. I wanted it as soon as I tried it on. Obsessed.

Impassioned - Amplified
This is the first ever MAC lipstick I got. It is a very vibrant pink and I love the colour so much, especially in summer. I saw a youtuber wearing this while she was filming her MAC lipstick haul and I loved it so so much. For my birthday I asked for it and my parents bought it for me! If you look way back in my blogposts, you will see my birthday haul and see when I got it haha :)


Velvet Teddy - Matte 
I got this lipstick from my friends for my recent birthday! Myself and my three friends always put money together to make a hamper for one of our birthdays and put cute presents inside, I got this lipstick in my present hamper! This is a light brown nude in matte and it looks so nice and pretty. I would recommend you to try this one out if you are looking for a nude lipstick.


Girl About Town - Amplified
I have always been obsessed with this colour. It is a pinky purple and I always use it for my makeup routine blogposts, just because the colour is so pretty and works all year round. 


Speak Louder - Cremesheen 
This is also a recent lipstick for myself, I got this for christmas and the colour is of a dark pink . I saw this lipstick in the MAC shop and put it onto my list, I have wanted this for ages and I am so grateful I have it.


Hot Gossip - Cremesheen
This is a natural pink and its so nice to wear during the winter time. Absolutely in love.



Thank you for reading!
If you have any MAC lipsticks you love, please let me know!
Lots of Love

Lip Product Addict Tag

Hi guys!

Today I am doing a blogpost who I got tagged by 
http://louloves01.blogspot.co.uk
Please check her out, her blog is super cute <3

Let's get on with the questions...


1- Best luxury and drugstore products?
My favourite high end lipsticks are from MAC. I now have six... I might do a mac lipstick collection blogpost soon <3


Some really good drugstore lipsticks are from Collection 2000. They are super cheap, long lasting and have a nice selection of colours. If you are new to lipsticks and not sure what to go for, I would recommend these. 
The colours below are in Sugar Plum and Seduction. 


2- What is your favourite lip balm/treatment?
 Currently, I am using the mint eos lip balm. I always end up forgetting to use these sort of products but since it's winter I need to start remembering!

3- What us your favourite eye catching red?
 I don't purchase many red lipsticks but I have the Rimmel 016 Heart Breaker Lipstick and I absolutely love it. It's quite a dark red. 


4- Favourite MAC lipstick?
 Right now I am obsessed with Mehr. I bought it recently because I saw my friend wearing it and the colour looked so nice. It's a matte light purple kind of colour. 

5- Most disappointing product?
I tried out the collection 2000 lipsticks and I absolutely hated them. They were only about £2.00 but I threw them away because I knew I would never use it again.  

6- Lip liner - yes or no?
Only sometimes. I have a Kiko plum pistick and it came with a lipliner. Since dark lipsticks are harder to perfect, I really like using a lipliner because it helps it look nicer and more  defined.
  

7- Favourite Gloss?
 I never wear lipgloss because I dislike the feel of it on my lips and it never lasts. Instead, I use the benefit lip balms, they give a glossy look and the colours are so so nice. 

8- ....... Something Else?
I really want to try out a Yves Saint Laurent Lipstick because the packaging is so so so pretty! They are too expensive and I don't have a job yet so I can keep dreaming... 


Who I Tag... 

Thank you for reading!
Love you Lots

Lush Bath Products Review


Lush Bath Products Review

Hello, 
Today, I am reviewing some Lush products. 
I hope you enjoy...


The first Lush product I will be telling you about is the "Creamy Candy" Bubble Bar. This bubble bar has a really sweet scent and is pretty similar to "Candy Mountain" (a popular bar from the christmas collection). The scent is of candy floss so this would be perfect if you like sweet smells. 




I really love this bath bomb because the scent is very uplifting and it immediately puts me in a great mood, as would any lush bath product would do. 
When I run this bubble bar under a warm tap, it turns the bath water into a light pink. I think that this is such a cute colour and would raise your spirits up if you're in a bad mood. 




I usually crumble this whole bubble bar into the bath, this is because it's quite small and the smell doesn't get too overwhelming. 

Overall, I love this product and I would definitely purchase it again.


The second one I will be reviewing is "Brightside". 
"Brightside" is a Bubble Bar. 
For a bubble bar, you will have to run the tap for your bath and crumble the scented bar inside, I usually only use half as this one is so big and a small amount goes a long way.


 This bubble bar turned my bath water into a bright orange with a small amount of bubbles.
Also, it smells sooooo good!
The bath bar gives off a zesty orange scent. It's super sweet and it really helps brighten up your mood :D


In conclusion, I love this product and I would definitely recommend you to try it out!



Next is a bath bomb from the christmas collection! This is called Cinders.
 I absolutely love it! It has a fruit punch fragrance and the orange beads you can see sprinkled on the top is popping candy.  When you pop this in the bath it sounds like you are nearby a crackling fire!



Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the bath water result because I am a failure (oops :/...) but I do remember! The bath turns a vibrant yellowy colour and I think that this bath bomb is very nice and relaxing for a cold winters night. 


Now, the bath bomb I will be reviewing is the Luxury Lush Pud!
I loved loved loved this bath bomb. The results were beautiful. The scent of this is of a relaxing lavender. When I dropped this in the bath, the colours were very eccentric and extraordinary. 

As you can see in the picture below, the colours are very crazy and it looks fabulous. Once you swish the bath around, the range of colours disappear and your bath water turns into a light pink. 



This bath bomb was a lovely experience and I will definitely be buying it again next christmas!



This is the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb
I really enjoyed this bath bomb because the the results were nothing as I expected it to be.
Once I dropped it into the bath, it dissolved very very quickly leaving a zesty lime scent.  



As the bath bomb was dissolving, blue and yellow was exploding out into the bath water with golden glitter, it was so so pretty. 


Once the bath bomb was completely gone I swished the water around a bit and the bath  water had turned into a light blue with golden glitter. It was such a nice bath and I would definitely buy it next christmas. 


I hope you liked this post!
If you want another one, please let me know because I have so many more to try out!
Lots of Love

WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS - PART TWO

WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS - PART TWO

Hello!
Welcome to part two of my christmas present haul. This is the last one and it is all of the fashion items people had bought me!
Hope you enjoy!
(By the way, I am not showing off, I just thought you would like to see what I got, love you <3)

My sister bought me this top and I am in love!
This fits me so perfectly and I have been wanting a top like this style for quite a while now!
It is a long sleeved tight crop top in a navy blue. This is from New Look and it looks super nice with my black jeans. I don't have any white jeans but I think the two would fit perfectly together. 

My parents got me this jumper from TopShop. It is an oversized jumper in a pale pink colour. On the front is some white bold text saying "Take me to the Hampton's". Love this so much, it is so cosy and so comfy. 
This is another jumper from TopShop. It is in the colour white with a contrasting black on the text and neckline.  I love the style of this and loads of people have complemented it. 

  
These are some Primark pyjama leggings! These are literally one of the cosiest things I have ever tried on. The inside is super fluffy and I don't think I will ever want to come out of them. They are in the colour dark blue with gingerbread men and candy canes on it. In love <3

Thank you for reading! 
I hope you have all had an amazing christmas break.
I'm currently in the middle of my first week back at college :(
Oh well, another break in six weeks... yay...
Love you Lots

WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS - PART ONE


What I got for Christmas - Part One

Hey Guys!
I hope you all had an amazing christmas!
Today I will be sharing with you all of the beauty items and some others which I had been generously given!
I am definitely not showing off, I just thought some of you guys would be interested into what I got this year!
My next blog post will be what fashion items I got for christmas so stay posted if you want to see that soon!


This is the Ari perfume by Ariana Grande! I have literally wanted this since it came out and I am so so so happy I got it!
It smells amazing since it has some marshmallow extracts in it and I love marshmallows! Literally perfect. The packaging is super cute and I was very excited to take pictures for you to see. 

This is the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette! Literally in love. I saw this all over social media and I had to have a look in store. My mum was with me at the time and she saw that I was obsessed so she kindly went back and bought it for me! It looks perfect and I am so excited to try out some new eye looks with this beautiful palette. The packaging is absolutely stunning and the colours inside are too!

This eyeshadow palette is from Claire's. Compared to the high end products, I wasn't expecting it to be half as good as it is! The colours are very pigmented and I really like the shade of colours that are included in this palette. Thanks to my auntie, uncle and cousins for getting this for me!
This is the Nars Velvet Lip Pencil in the colour "Never Say Never". When I visited New York in October,  I went into Sephora many many times and I spotted this product. I loved the colour and I don't have anything similar to this lip pencil. The colour is so so so pretty and I am so excited to wear it!
The brush on the left is the real techniques expert face brush. I really wanted to find a new brush  for my foundation and my friend kindly bought it for me! I am so excited to use this, I have heard it is amazing! The brushes on the right are the Real Techniques Eye shadow brush set. I have wanted this for ages and these products would be amazing to perfect my eye shadow skills haha (I'm still learning!). 
This is the Maybelline lash sensational mascara. I hardly ever  wear mascara but I'm slowly getting to it! My sister had bought this for me and I can't wait to try this out, I have heard amazing reviews for this as well. 
These are from the new Ted Baker set and I am in love! I saw this collection in Boots and the packaging was so so so pretty and it smelt to good I couldn't not have anything. I have zero money since I can't get any call backs for jobs which is super annoying, resulting in the fact that I'm broke. Luckily my friends and family are so kind and they bought some of the collection for me! I love them sooooo much <3. 
Finally. These are some victoria secret stuff! A new VS shop opened up in my local town so everyone has gone crazy buying everything... I'm not complaining haha. My best friend Bella had bought me the VS wash bag and I think that it is super cute and it would be perfect to use for traveling! My parents had bought me the VS perfume, this would be perfect to take to College, so now I can smell good 24/7. I also got a voucher for VS and I am definelty going to buy and bra, I have wanted one for ages and I am so excited to be able to finally purchase one!

I am so thankful for everyone buying me presents and I love them all very much!
Thank you so much for reading!
Love you lots

My Top Five Makeup Products - Winter Addition


My Top Five Makeup Products

Hello,
Today I will be sharing with you my top five makeup products!
Hope you enjoy...
btw, this is in no particular order :)

 Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation
I have been using this foundation loads recently!
When I first bought this product I hated it because it wasn't right for my skin type but since then it has been working amazing!
I think that this serum would work best for those of you who have oily skin, this is because when I had dryer skin, I found it really hard to blend in.
A bonus to this foundation is that it lasts ages!
I feel like I have a lot more uses left in the bottle even though I have had it for such a long time. 


 Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
I used to be obsessed with this foundation!
I bought bottle after bottle after bottle. This is because the foundation was amazing for my skin type, it was a great colour for myself and it has really great coverage. If you are looking for a foundation, I would really recommend this, it worked well with my skin, both oily and dry so I would really advise you to try it out!
The only reason I stopped using this is because I got bored and wanted to try out new products. 


 Nars Blusher- Orgasm
I recently bought this product in New York and I don't regret it at all. I know this product is on the more pricey side but it is worth it. I first realised that a little goes a long way with this blusher so I can already tell it's going to last me a long time. 
The colour is a light pink with a golden shimmer so this would be a really cute colour during the autumn and winter times. 


 Sleek Blusher - Pixie Pink
This blusher is so nice. It is a really bright pink which would look great during the cold winter times. This blusher is long-lasting and has a great vibrant colour to it... don't worry not to vibrant. I was recommended this product by a YouTuber and as soon as I saw the colour I fell in love. This product isn't too expensive either, you can probably find it in your local drugstore.

5. MAC Lipstick - Girl About Town
I am absolutely in love with this lipstick. It's the one I would always reach for if i'm going out. I just think the colour is perfect for all year round, this is because it is a bright pink purple colour, so it's nice and vibrant for the summer but dark enough to get away with during the winter. Love love love.

I hope you have enjoyed this post.
If you have any makeup favourites, please let me know in the comment section!
Love you lots
