Key Beauty Products

A L'Oréal '3 for 2' offer was the perfect opportunity for me to top up on some of my favourite beauty products. And also the best opportunity for me to talk about these on my blog and share my views in case you are interested in trying them out.

MAC Diva

Mini Make Up Haul

I squeaked with excitement when I saw that my local Boots store had gotten it's Nyx Cosmetics counter, and it was just being filled up that same day. So, I could pick anything I wanted... but as we all know deciding what to actually purchase was a real struggle. Here, I'm giving you my thoughts on the make up products that I picked up on that exciting day!

Beauty Review - Spectrum's Glam Clam

I have browsed the Spectrum website for more times than I would actually like to admit to, I think many of us have... right? But, I finally got around to purchasing their Glam Clam and I have been testing it out for a few weeks so I could let you know what I think.

Film Review: Gods of Egypt

After watching the trailer for Gods of Egypt, I thought it looked like an epic film that I really needed to watch. The film follows the battle between two powerful Gods, Set and Horus, for the throne of Egypt.

Review: L'Oréal Nude Magique Cushion

Finally, I went back to purchase L'Oréal's Nude Magique Cushion after instantly regretting not getting it when I first tested it out. I am so impressed with this foundation already!

Pen Heaven Personalised Journal

I ordered my own personalised leather journal a while back, and have been waiting to show it off ever since. I bought one previously as a gift for someone else, and I was just so impressed that I wanted my very own journal with that personal touch.

Sleek MakeUp Highlighter & Blush

On a recent shopping trip I was looking for some new make up (now there's a surprise) and I came across the new Sleek MakeUp counter in my local Boots store. I spent quite a lot of time testing out all their different products and I landed on their Highlighting Palette section and could not resist making a sneaky purchase. Check them out.

Bryan Adams Get Up Tour 2016

Last night I went to see Bryan Adams at the Birmingham stop on his Get Up Tour in the UK this year, and it is safe to say that it was amazing! I just wanted to share some of my thoughts and some snaps of my night.

Just a positive note...

Do you ever feel like you just want to get away? Sometimes, I do. Well, it would be a bit pointless of me to be writing this post if I didn’t. I just wanted to reinforce myself that I am doing good even though I may feel the need to just get away sometimes because it's a normal thing in life.

April Outfit Post

I thought I would create a new outfit post each month so I can show off some of the clothes I have been gathering over the past few weeks. Surprisingly, I haven't gone that crazy in the shopping department this month (yet) so for April I have a few of my favourite outfits and I have styled them a little differently too.

Make Up Review: Freedom and Collection

I have been on the hunt for some new eyebrow products for a while now, and was so pleased when Make Up Revolution kindly tweeted me last week to let me know that their sister brand, Freedom Make Up, do some great brow products, including a pomade. I had been toying with purchasing the ABH dip brow pomade for a while, but decided to try out the Freedom Make Up one instead because I can actually test this one in-store for shades and it is much cheaper! See what I thought of them.

Film Review: Daddy's Home
Image credit:
So, when I first saw the advert for Daddy's home I thought to myself "now that's a film I'd like to watch" because I think it looked very funny, and also because Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg star in it. So, that can't be a bad combination, right?

Review Nyx Lip Lingerie

Last week, the Nyx Lip Lingerie lipstick was released at Boots so I was more than excited when I received an email telling me I could now purchase them. The Lip Lingerie lipsticks are supposed to be the perfect nudes that will suit everyone, how amazing does that sound? However, the hardest part for me was choosing which shades I wanted. I decided to go with Embellishment and Bedtime Flirt after watching a few reviews of them on YouTube. Here's how I found them.

Outfit Post: Missguided stylin'

I got some great things from Missguided, and I was so excited by everything that I thought I would do an outfit post to show you all what I got. Some of the things I actually have no idea where I am going to wear them yet, but it will give me a great excuse to go places, right? Hopefully, when the weather picks up a bit I'll be able to wear these out. So, check out my new outfits and let me know what you think of them.

Outfit post: Boohoo stylin'

I have bought a few things from Boohoo recently, and I really wanted to compose an outfit post to show them off and to show you how I have been styling them. All of the clothing items in this post are petite sizes, because I am only 5 foot after all. But, I did want to show you that short girls can work it too! So, sorry in advance to the taller ladies out there :)

Revisiting my goals I set myself for 2016

As we are now into the third month of the year I thought I would revisit my goals for 2016, and see if I have completed any. Or I may have to use this to kick myself into actually achieving some of my goals. I have copied my goals into this and underneath I am going to evaluate whether or not I have done/ or I am doing anything to complete my goal. Here goes!

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers

The lovely Tania from TaniaMichele tagged me in the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers tag, and I am so excited by this, I feel like I haven't done a tag in forever (well I haven't that's why). You can read Tania's post here and see the answers she has given to her own set of questions which is very interesting, as I love finding out those little things about people that you wouldn't necessarily know! It's such a fun way to interact more! So, I'm going to answer the questions that Tania has given me (hopefully you'd like to know the answers), and then I'll tag some more of you beauties with my own set of questions that you'd like to answer and pass on etc. So, here goes!

Haul post: see what I've been buying!

I have been accumulating that many odds bits and bobs over the past few weeks, I thought it would be time for a haul post so I can share with you what I've been splurging on. I had to scramble around my room because some of the stuff I have completely forgotten about. So, I have tried to pick out some the better items to show you.

February Favourites

Hey there! It's nearly mid-February so I thought I would do a 'February Favourites' post of what I'm currently loving at the moment, and what I will probably be using throughout the rest of February. I noticed that I was using these things almost every day, even when I get newer things I just keep going back to them. So take a look and let me know what you think.

Sundies Special #02 - The Valentine's Edit

Hey guys, hope you enjoyed the first Sundies Special, and since its the weekend before Valentine's Day I thought it would be a great excuse to do a special themed post this week. So, I have been on the look out for some lovely lingerie and nightwear, and I am so excited to share the pieces I have found with you because new underwear makes us feel pretty, right?

Sundies Special #01

Hey guys!
I have had an idea for a 'Sundies Special' post written down for a while now, and I am finally getting around to doing it. It's a post I want to do each week on Sunday (hence the name) specifically based on underwear. This is because I absolutely love buying underwear, or if I am not doing that then I am most likely browsing online, or lusting after pieces I have seen on Instagram. So, I will either be showing recent purchases that I have made myself, or writing things such as a 'lingerie wishlist' or a post about a specific lingerie brand I love. I am so excited about this (it's a little sad), but I am sure there are loads of us out there who have the same obsession as myself. Here goes...

Film Review: The Transporter Refueled

Image credit:
The Transporter Refueled (2015) is the fourth film in The Transporter film franchise and it is the first one without Jason Statham playing lead role as Frank Martin. Instead, we have Ed Skrein playing the lead role, and I was quite surprised by how much I actually enjoyed this film because it must have been hard for Skrein knowing he had to fill the shoes of the previous actor.

So, the plot of this film follows Frank as he ends up escorting four young women around as they are looking for revenge against their former employer, a sinister Russian kingpin. Frank takes the contract from former prostitute Anna, who along with her accomplices, steals from a bank and kidnaps Frank Senior in order for him to comply with carrying on with their mission for revenge. During the film, Anna and her accomplices begin to rob the friends of the Russian Kingpin, Karasov, in order to frame his friends against him. And of course, throughout there are scenes of epic fighting as you'd expect from a Transporter film.

I tried to watch this film without comparing Skrein to Statham because I know I love Statham in The Transporter films and it would be unfair to completely write the film off because of this. However, Skrein seemed to have the rough British accent down, and as I was watching it I almost forgot there are previous Transporter films. So, with this in mind I thoroughly enjoyed this film, and when asked what I thought about it afterwards I seemed to keep saying "it's not bad, actually". So, if you are a little unsure of watching it because Statham isn't in it, like I was, then I'd say to give it a chance and you'll probably be surprised!

I would rate this film 7 out of 10. Have you seen this film yet, and what did you think?

Beauty Review: NARS Sheer Glow Foundation

I have been wanting to purchase a more high end foundation for absolutely ages, so I cannot wait to tell you how delighted I am that I finally got round to making the plunge and purchasing NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. And I am more than impressed with it!

Film Review: Southpaw

Image credit:
Southpaw (2015) stars Jake Gyllenhaal in the leading role as a light heavyweight boxer Billy Hope. After losing his wife (Rachel McAdams) Billy turns to retired boxer and trainer Tick Wills (Forest Whitaker) to turn his life around and get his young daughter back from child protection services.

Billy's wife Maureen accidentally gets shot following a brawl with a new up-and-coming boxer named Miguel Escobar. After this, Billy goes on a downward spiral abusing alcohol and drugs, and then his young daughter Leila is taken away from him and put into child protection services. Upon this incident, Billy decides to turn his life around and get his daughter back, and seeks help in the form of Tick who later begins to train him. Finally, Billy has the chance to fight Miguel for the chance to win the light heavyweight title, in which he succeeds, and then is reunited with Leila after the match.

It is well and truly an emotionally-fueled film, as we follow Billy's ups and downs after the death of his wife, and losing his daughter to child protection services. I did not expect myself to feel so emotional as I watched it, and it only led me to "believe in Hope" even more as I wanted him to get his life back on track. The tagline for this film is certainly well suited! Also, the film has an excellent soundtrack, executive produced by Eminem, and features some real adrenaline pumping tracks whilst we see some fantastic boxing scenes.

I would certainly recommend a watch to anyone, and would rate this film 8 out of 10.
I was surprised by this film because I actually really enjoyed it! Have you seen this film yet, and what did you think?

Beauty Review: Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Matte Lipsticks

Last week I purchased two more of Boujois' Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks because I wanted more colours to add to my collection... erm do I need better reason? Lately, I have been purchasing more nude/pink toned lipsticks that I can wear throughout the day, and then saving the brighter and bolder lipstick colours for when I go out.

Styling over-the-knee boots

I was very hesitant about buying a pair of over-the-knee boots because being only 5ft I thought they would be way too long and make me look even shorter, but I decided to try a pair on and was pleasantly surprised by how great they actually look. So, now over-the-knee boots are my new favourite footwear and ever since I got this pair of boots I have wanted to wear them with everything I possibly can. And, I thought I would compose a post of a few of my favourite outfits to wear them with and show you how versatile they can be.

The films I'm excited for in 2016 - Part 1

Hey guys!
I have decided to split my "films I'm excited for in 2016" post into a quarterly series that I will do throughout the year because there are just so many films coming out in 2016, and you would probably forget by the time it gets to that date. So, this post will be about the films coming out in 2016 from January to March, and I must note that of course there are many films coming out this year, but these are just the ones that I am personally excited for. So here goes...

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eye Shadow Palette Review

I purchased Urban Decay's newest palette as an early Christmas present to myself because I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and try it out. Now, I have had it for that long and haven't wrote a post about it yet (which you might also be thinking), but I wanted to use it first before I gave you my honest opinion. You can't really give a review on something when you've only used one eye shadow shade, can you?

My 22nd Birthday!

So, it was my 22nd birthday on Sunday 3rd January and I had such a lovely day. It was one of my better birthdays and I was very happy all day long (I was smiling a lot). I thought I would share with you what I got up to and show you how spoilt I was! Firstly, I received a lot of wonderful gifts, including many items from Pandora (a new charm and two gorgeous rings) which I absolutely love and cannot stop wearing them because they are so pretty. You might think I like Pandora, eh!
