Friday Favourite: Farewell February!! | Beauty & Life

my favourite people of the month...

Hello Lovelies,

It seems about time i give some love to the reason i have a blog i suppose... the people that take up my spare time, and give me things to spend my money on...

So, my favourite people of the week/month/all time are...... LIFE & BEAUTY YOUTUBERS:

Yet another strange favourite, but i suppose it's good to change it up a bit. I am going to tell you guys my absolute favourite youtubers, and my favourite video of theirs (in no particular order).

Sam Scheurman:





Sorry about the short posts recently, i have been so busy with college and work, but i promise i'll get the camera out and get some snapshots to share with you soon :)

Friday Favourite | Life

my favourite product of the week...

Hello Lovelies,

WOW, these weeks are just flying by! This is my 4th favourite, which means that's like a month!! Once again, this is a bit of a strange one. I have not been buying many new beauty products, or clothes recently, due to the fact i spend far too much money! I tell you, spending bans are not fun. However, i did splash out on this weeks fave, but it was SO worth it.

Therefore, this weeks favourite is..... MY IPHONE:

(google.co.uk)






I decided on getting the silver iPhone 5s, and i have no regrets! I am absolutely loving it, and i can hardly leave it alone. I have downloaded all of the essential apps, and have the cutest polka dot background. The touch fingerprint sensor is AMAZING and the easiest thing to use! Having updated from my Blackberry Bold 9900, it has been quite a change - it's such a relief to have a phone that doesn't freeze all the time, and a phone i can actually use to do phone-y things. I am apple converted!

Casual Evening Outfit + Make-Up

Hello Lovelies,

 I can't resist an opportunity to snap some photo's of the make up i'm loving/wearing, and the clothes i wear - so going out yesterday was the perfect time to do so! This look is perfect for a casual evening time, and the make up can be jazzied up with a dress for a more formal occasion. 



Make-Up I'm Wearing:
-Maybelline 'Dream Pure' BB Cream (Medium)
-Collection 'Lasting Perfection' Concealer (Medium)
-Rimmel 'Stay Matte' Powder (Warm Beige)
-Rimmel powder blush (037 Smoked Oyster)
-Rimmel 'Professional eyebrow pencil' (004 Black/Brown)
-Sleek 'Au Naturel' Palette (Nubuck)
-Urban Decay 'Naked' Palette (Virgin, Gunmetal, Creep)

(i look a bit scary here woops)



Steal My Style:
-Charity Shop Jumper
-H&M High Waisted Jeans
-Accessorize Bag (Last Season)
-Converse
-Vintage Tartan Belt (with a few loops missing)

I hope you enjoyed seeing what i am wearing at the moment - i wore this to go Bowling yesterday, so i probably didn't need such a heavy eye, but i just enjoy eye shadow too much! Also, hopefully some of this inspires you in your own style.

Thanks for reading! Speak soon :)

Friday Favourite | Life

my favourite product of the week...

Hello Lovelies,

 Right, i am going to mix it up a bit this week with my favourite. I always think about these posts and want to share what i am REALLY loving not just something i slightly like, simply because there's nothing else better. So, this is not going to be a specific product/item, but sort of a mixture of things, therefore.... 

This weeks favourite is..... VINTAGE STYLE ICONS:

Strange right? I can't exactly pinpoint what i love, and i can't go into too much detail, as, honestly, i am not an expert on the events of the past, so i'm just going to share some images which inspire me, and i hope they inspire you:












& I suppose this is cheating a bit, but i just HAVE to include Miley Cyrus' new Vogue Madonna/Marilyn Monroe inspired shoot... I think she looks absolutely flawless, and glamorous!!

My Everyday Make-Up and Storage | Beauty

my most used make-up and how i store it...

Hello Lovelies,

 So today i thought i'd show you all how i store my make-up and what make up i actually wear - mostly because i am finally happy with the storage i'm using. This is not actually all of my make-up, as i store some bits i rarely wear in separate draws, which aren't really worth photographing at the moment. I am currently using the 'Pretty Pink' Cosmetics Case from Argos, which you can buy here, for £39.99 and it is perfect for keeping my things organised.

The case looks like this:
It is shiny black and has a quilted finish to it. It opens up and has multiple compartments, which you can separate how you want, with a larger compartment at the bottom...
In the top left i keep most of my eye bits and bobs, and my concealer...
-Rimmel scandaleyes mascara
-Collection lasting perfection concealer
-Maybelline the falsies mascara
-Lancome Paris liquid eyeliner
-Rimmel eyebrow pencil
-Collection kohl eyeliner
I then have my eyeshadow brushes and my tweezers...
-Large eyeshadow brush
-Urban Decay flat brush
-Real Techniques shading brush
-Models Prefer small eyeshadow brush
-Revlon dual ended brush
-Tweezers
In the larger bottom part, i keep my eyeshadow palettes, blushes, skincare and lipsticks...
-Mua 'Ever After' palette
-Sleek 'Au Naturel' palette
-Urban Decay 'Naked 1' palette
-Rimmel blush
-Maybelline blush
-Maybelline dream pure BB cream
-Rimmel match perfection and stay matte powder
-Shiseido make up base
-Clinique lipsticks
-17 lipstick
-Rimmel lipstick
In the next compartment i store my larger make-up brushes...
-Avon kabuki brush
-Elizabeth Arden face brush
-Blush brush
-Ecotools concealer brush
Finally i keep some extra eye bits and bobs in the top section...
-17 metallic eyes
-Barry M body creme
-Eye glitter
-Urban Decay primer
-No7 eyeshadow
-Maybelline triple eyeshadows

And that is it guys! Obviously i don't wear all of this make up every single day, i tend to alternate eye shadows i am loving, and sometimes i don't have time to do a full make up look just for everyday college. I love that with this case i can travel and not have to worry about it, i can lock it, and it is super easy to find what i am after, and see what i have. I no longer have to root around in make up bags, or put all mucky make up on my bed just to find what i want. Clean and tidy - Just the way i like it!

I have to give Sam Schuerman a big thank you for giving me this idea in the first place :)

Hope you enjoyed reading this, if you want any reviews on any of these products, or any make-up looks with any of them, let me know in the comments!! Also, leave me a comment on what you would like to see next?

Thanks for reading! Speak soon :)

Friday Favourite | Fashion

my favourite product of the week...

Hello Lovelies,

 Woohoo! It's that time of the week again, and i get to tell you all what i have been loving! I am cheating a bit this week, as i haven't been wearing this product that much because of England's poo weather, but none the less i am truly in love and i have to share this with you guys... 

So, this weeks favourite is..... BABY PINK BOYFRIEND JACKET:


Photo from riverisland.com

I cannot even begin to say how much i love this jacket, it is pretty much like wearing a socially acceptable dressing gown everyday, the most comfy warm coat! The colour is also so pretty, and great if you want to change up your wardrobe a bit. I think the baby pink is bang on trend for spring, and is perfect to pair with an all black outfit, or more pastels. The only downside of this coat is the fact it is dry-clean only, and i am too scared to wear it on rainy days - but apart from that the faux-fur isn't too itchy, and i just love it!

Steal my style: RIVER ISLAND £80.00

Update: I am no longer using my old twitter, so i have a new link to my other account which contains all my updates


Thanks for reading! Will be back with a new post soon :)
