A little while ago I got the Be Legendary Liquid Metal Lipstick in Mauve Squad in a gift set from Smashbox. I had never tried a metallic lipstick, I wasn’t sure I’d really wear it. So when I received this one it was a great chance to try one out.
Recently my parents and I went for a day trip to Bristol. Bristol isn’t far from where we live and so we took the train over, ending up at Bristol Train Station which isn’t far from the harbour, aquarium, we the curious and of course Cabot Circus shopping centre. When we went to Bristol Gromit Unleashed 2 was still running, which is a trail around Bristol of different Gromits, Wallace’s and Feathers McGraw. Which if you didn’t know are characters from a British cult classic Wallace and Gromit, an inventor and his dog! The trail raises money for charities with the help of the sculptures, with 60 to find dotted around.
Earlier in the year I treated myself to an LVL treatment, it had been something I had been wanting to try. But with the end of my first year at uni looming I wanted to wait until I’d have time to actually wear makeup and make the most of the treatment. LVL is basically a perm for your eyelashes, it stands for Lengthen, Volume and Lift. I had heard of this for a while before I had it done, but never really understood what it was until I saw a friend had it done and her lashes looked amazing! So after my final assessment was done I decided to treat myself to an LVL. Plus I had many exciting weekends planned so by having my lashes done meant one less step in my makeup routine!
Finding a good mascara can be a challenge. Everyone wants something different from their mascara, whether it be length, volume, thickness or longevity. For me I look for length and longevity. As my fave drugstore mascara by Seventeen has been discontinued it led me to branch out and try other brands to find a replacement. I have tried the Soap & Glory Thick & Fast HD Collagen-Coat mascara and thought it was a good mascara, which you can read a full review of here. When I was buying some things from Soap & Glory they had a 3-for-2 offer and so I thought I would try another of their mascara’s.
As I have been more active on social media and taking more pictures, I realised that as I took these photos of myself I would analyse everything. Every little detail about myself and what other people might think when they look at these photos.
There are many nudes out there, with different undertones, formulas, finishes leading to so many choices. As I was reorganising my collection I was brainstorming blog posts I wanted to do. So after checking my archives I realised I’ve never done a post dedicated to my favourite nudes; and without further ado here they are!
A little while ago as I was perusing the isles of Boots, I came across the clearance section and to my surprise they had a few Bare Minerals products there, you can check out the other goodies I bought in this haul. When I saw the Original foundation was on sale for £13 rather than £27, I had been wanting to try it and this offer was too good to resist.
Hello everyone! I can’t believe how cold it’s been here in the UK, as a result I have been suffering from a cold over the last week. It needs to hurry up and go! Anyway onto todays post I have all the makeup and skincare I’ve used up over the last 3 months! This year I have been doing empties every three months instead of every two like I did last year, making this one the penultimate one before the end of the year. Which is mad to think about as there is so much of the year left!
At the beginning of September the UK had a beautiful weekend, and to make the most of it I went with a friend to Waterperry, which is a village just outside of Oxford. I came across this little village whilst scrolling though Instagram, I don’t remember who posted a picture there, but I looked it up on the maps and it was just over an hours drive away. It has been on an open tab on my phone, along with many other things, reminding me of somewhere I wanted to visit.
This summer has been an eventful one, so I thought I would do a post I have never done before: summarising my summer. In the three months I had off for uni so much has happened in such a short space of time. I went from dating someone to being single again. I have travelled to the beaches of Weymouth and visiting Scotland for the first time. I got a promotion at work, I have tried things I never thought I would and it has flown by!
