Monday Haulin'

'iya loves,

It's Monday! Normally I hate Monday's but it's the start of my long week off which I am so excited for! As you might be able to tell it's time for me to get back into the swing of things on here and my channel! I thought I would give you guys a little more of an update with what I've been up to! I've got a haul video coming up for you guys soon which is absolutely huge.. oops. I went to Primark.. and well a lot happened and sooner that I remember my basket was full. Everytime this happens! I saw Harry Potter pjs and clothing and I was sold. You know how it is with me and Harry Potter! 

These have become one of my favourite things of life! I absolutely love them! Each year I normally end up buying new summer PJ's and I always get them from Primark has they have such cute, fun designs!

I have also been delving further into the world of LUSH. As you guys know I'm a huge fan of LUSH! I love all their bath goodies but this time round I decided to control myself and focus on their skincare! I love their Mask of Magnaminty I think it's amazing and really works well on my skin! The same goes for the toner water as well I previously have owned the same one only in a smaller size. I should have picked up the big bottle then because it's good stuff! Added bonus of it also makes you feel like you're at the beach! Quick little update for the ocean salt scrub! I was so intrigued by this and it so far as been working wonderfully not to mention it also smells great! It just doesn't taste very nice! I've also used the cosmetic warrior face mask which made my skin feel so good afterwards! I will warn you this one isn't exactly great for scent as it contains garlic but other than that it's good stuff! I think I'm going to give cupcake a go tonight! 

How cute is this phone case guys?! I'm a Disney fan through and through! When I spotted this case on Ebay I was instantly like 'mine'. I absolutely love it. Not to mention it's got my fav in the corner right at the bottom ;) Still obsessed with elephants guys! I love the quote too I think it's really cute! 

Lastly I am absolutely loving orange lips! I think it's going to be my fav colour now for the warmer months! I've always loved wearing orange lipsticks/glosses but for some reason this year it's more intense! Hoops & curled hair as I explained it the last post is a must for me right now too! On that note I plan to do my make up for the day and film a hair video for you guys! I hope your Monday isn't too bad for you!

That Spring Feeling.

'iya loves,

so it's been a little while hasn't it?! I'm full into the swing of those spring vibes right now! I'm absolutely loving it, more importantly orange appears to be my colour at the moment! I'm loving wearing it on the eyes, lips & clothing wise! I've changed shades of red twice in the past two months and I've got my next shade lined up which is coming in a future haul! Not to mention my current love for curled hair! I curl my hair and then it will last until I next wash my hair which is great, it means as the days go on the curls get messier and more effortless which I love. Can we just also speak about my current obsession with hoops.. it's becoming a slightly problem! Which you'll probably see in my upcoming favourites video! 

Easter has been and gone and we had all 4 girlies in that time to stay for 2 nights & 3 days! Least to say it was hectic! Got about 12 weeks left of having Fia on a Thursday & Friday and then she's off to school! That has gone so quickly, when did she get so grown up?! Keira is staying tonight to make up for the night she missed out on due to her being unwell bless her! My parents are off on their holiday as of Monday! Which means I've got filming time to film some looks! I'll give you an insight, I've got two collabs in the pipeline which I'm so excited for! I've also got a Hayley Williams inspired tutorial which I need to film coming up! That was a requested tutorial! I also went to start a new series on my channel which I've got lots of ideas for I've just not had enough time to even begin filming that! I'm very excited! 

As with my job the store has been open 5 weeks now and we're finally getting into our routine. Everything has calmed down a lot which is great because it means I can get back to doing this which I love! 

Needless to say we've also planned a trip to the zoo in September! This was mine and my sister Nikki's doing! We thought little Aiden would love it, and we're getting the whole family together as a family outing and to do something for the mass of birthdays that will be happening in September! Of course I need to check up on my elephants too and renew my adoption! 

I'll leave the latest videos below if you've not seen them yet! New video coming sunday loves!

Youtube Catch Up #22.

'iya loves,

How's your week going so far?! I've had the week off work as I had holiday to use up before next month. I was going to film a requested tutorial yesterday however I spent the day fixing my hair. Long story short my usual hair dye that I use which I showed you in my haircare routine did not take to the middle and some of the ends of my hair. I think that was a sign that I needed a change. I've had that colour for quite a while. The most common thing us girls do after a break up is change our hair mine was just 4 months later haha! My new shade of red in the light looks like Ariel's hair and when my hair isn't in the light it's a more red toned red if that makes sense which is darker than my previous colour. I think it suits me and looks much better. I feel a lot happier with my new colour. I used a L'Oreal hair dye in the colour Scarlett Power. I plan to switch it up once this has faded and it needs dying again by giving my hair a true Ariel colour in all light :) I said this year was the year for change and that's definitely happening. 

Today I've spent the day with my nieces and baby nephew Aiden. I promise a post about him is coming soon I've just not had time to write about that beautiful little boy yet. He's so adorable and the noises he makes are just hilarious. He was doing little goat impressions earlier whilst drinking his bottle. Tomorrow I'm going shopping with my mumma and then Saturday I'm off to see Fifty Shades of Grey with my chummy, then we're going shopping and then we're having a much deserved and needed night out. Sunday will be spent recovering from no doubt the night before and then Monday it's back to work for me.

LUSH | Drummers Drumming.

'iya loves,

You know my love for baths I am just obsessed. I've just got out of a nice hot bubble bath right now so that proves my point! Today I wanna talk to you guys about a reusable bubble bar wand from LUSH. I used this up last week and to be totally honest you get quite a few uses out of this, depending on how many bubbles you like. If like me you like a lot then I think this lasted me about 6 baths which is really good. I love the fact this is bright yellow and pink! I love bright colours especially on LUSH products. Now this smells so good I can't even tell you guys. It smells of strawberries and cream and it's just so good! It's not sickly sweet like for example snow fairy. I feel that's a great product if you like that type of scent if you don't you won't like it. With this though I feel it's more subtle. You get a slight tint to the water as well, it's a gorgeous baby pink colour. Where obviously you're not breaking it up like a normal bubble bar you're not getting as strong a colour. I love these wands though they're so worth the money. If LUSH bring more wands out with another collection - they did last year for mother's day.. it's definitely worth checking them out and picking one up!

ELF | Tone Correcting Powder

'iya loves,

This powder is such a great setting powder. The idea behind the four colours is that it's supposed to be a tone correcting powder. It also absorbs any excess oil on the face so any of you oily ladies out there this could be a good option for you. Not only that, it aims to make your skin look healthier, mattify, brighten and neutralise your skin. Whilst doing all of that it's a sheer powder so it's not going to add on top of what you've already put on your face making you look cakey. I've hit pan on my first one of these powders and already have a back up. It's a great little setting powder and something I've always over looked until I decided to try a bunch of new stuff from ELF. Give it a try as a setting powder and see what you think! It's £3.95 (a steal!) and you can find it here.

Youtube Catch Up #21.

'iya loves,

I'm liking the fact that I've cut down on blogging for the time being. It's so much less pressure. As of right now migraines are getting worse rather than better. New medication and trialling it small dose at a time is not helping the situation but hopefully we'll get there. Not to mention, I've gone down with a cold as of today so feeling pretty damn lousy! On the plus side though, everything else is going well. How have you all been?! 
I've got quite a few videos to share with you today if you're not subscribed to my channel and I've got a valentines day tutorial coming up on Wednesday so look out for that :)

Beyonce | Midnight Heat.

'iya loves,

It strikes me this has not yet featured over here on my blog yet as it was a top favourite from 2014 and I'm still obsessed with it. I've been wearing it for the past month straight. There's just something about it. If you don't know what I'm talking about it's the perfume from Beyonce called midnight heat. 

The first thing that caught my eye with this perfume is the stunning purple colour that this perfume has and it's almost like an ombre effect. I have heat rush from Beyonce and it's one of my favourites. This I think might just trump that because of it's gorgeous sweet scent. I love sweet scented perfumes. I always have and I was sceptical with this one so only got the small bottle when really I should have got a bigger one. This perfume is very sultry and sexy but it's still wearable in the day which I love. It's great for evening wear as well. I love it's one of those that you can wear for either because most of mine are strictly day time or evening and that's it. Let me just say this perfume has a lot of stuff in it. It's fruity (opening nodes) - plum and star fruit, orchid, black tulips and purple peony for the heart nodes and lastly for the base nodes - warm amber, sandalwood and patchouli. Like I said there's a lot! If you're looking for something with warmth, slightly floral but also sweet this would be the one for you. Give it a try! Find it here.
