Review: Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation.

Hiaa Lovelies!!
 
First of I've been blogging now for about two months and when I first started I didn't really know what direction the blogging world was going to take me in. Since then I've kinda just gone with the flow. I enjoy obviously doing my beauty posts but also just lifestyle ones where you get to know a little bit more about myself! I feel like I'm finally feeling comfortable with my blog, like I've found my feet!
 
Another review for you today. I have a stash of planned reviews coming up it's just finding the time to fit them in!
 
 
 
I purchased the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation at the start of January. As a lot of drugstore products are hyped up I was eager to see if this is as good as the hype surrounding it. I was pleasantly surprised. I've used this foundation for three months give or take. I absolutely love it. My normal shade is 100 - Ivory. However for the summer and when I've got a bit of a tan I recently purchased a darker one. This shade is 201 - Classic Beige. When I first started off with foundation at about 15-16 I used to use a Rimmel one I think it was a very basic one. I've found myself going back to Rimmel's foundations again as they've got some gems currently on the market.
 
This foundation retails at £8.99. You can purchase these from Boots, Superdrug and anywhere else that sells Rimmel cosmetics. Normally Boots and Superdrug have some sort of offer on as well so you more than likely going to be able to get this for less than the normal price. To be quite honest with you, the darker shade I paid full price for and I would again. I feel it's totally worth the price tag. I know some people can tend to be put off by drugstore foundations because they're cheaper. However you can find some little gems. It's all about trying and testing which one works for you.
 
This foundation has SPF 15 so it is perfect for those hotter months in the summer. It has 'anti-fatigue' and provides a radiant glow on the skin. Now I can agree with this. It doesn't give your skin too much of a glow that you end up looking way too 'shiny'. It's just enough to make your skin look healthy. If you're not a fan of dewey finishes or have oily skin then I'd probably give this foundation a miss. Unless you set it with a powder. My skin is normal with the occasional dry patch and this foundation works wonders on my skin. I'd say this is medium coverage, however it is buildable if you feel one layer isn't enough. It's also very lightweight as well I don't feel once I've applied it, it feels heavy or 'cakey' on my skin.
 
Considering the price of this foundation I must say I was sold just by the packaging. I absolutely love the bright orange lid and pump. I also love the fact it's in a glass bottle, it makes the foundation look more expensive than it is. I'm not a huge fan of plastic or tube packaging. I also love the fact it's in the form of a pump. I'm not too keen on foundations in a glass bottle with no pump it makes it very awkward to get the right amount of foundation out, without wasting any. The only problem I find with this design is when you're almost out you really have to dig the last little bit out at the bottom. Simply because it's a pump. A bonus I find though is that you can see how far down you are in the bottle which makes it perfect to see when you need to purchase a new one.
 
All in all I do really love this foundation. If you're looking for a foundation thats lightweight, offers a dewey finish, medium coverage (buildable) and has spf in then I'd really recommend this. Their colour range isn't too shabby either, just be careful when matching yourself at the drugstore, lighting isn't always the best as it's not natural lighting!! Also testing on the back of your hand isn't the best idea either you're more likely to pick up on the wrong shade!
 
I hope you enjoyed this little review, I do have another Rimmel foundation review coming up soon too!

Review: Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat.

Hiaa Lovelies!!
 
I've got a review for you today. I've got so many on my list of posts to do that I'm slowly ticking off. Today I'm going to be reviewing the Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat. I purchased this back in January, and if you're familar with my Superdrug haul post and video then you will already know this.
 
 
This top coat retails at £6.95 which I feel is reasonable for a top coat. The majority of top coats linger at about the £5-£8 mark. The Sally Hansen line has quite a few top coats to choose from so if shine isn't your thing I'm sure there's going to be something more suited to your taste. I purchased this from Superdrug however it is also avaliable from Boots.
 
True to it's name this top coat leaves a beautiful shine on the nails which is long lasting. I'm not too sure about 10 days because I never manage to leave a colour on my nails for that long! It has lasted for 8 days and the shine still looks as good as it did when I applied it. I do recommend this product if you're looking for a good new top coat. I love the formulation of this product, it really helps to lock in the colour. I've noticed since using this product it makes the colour last a lot longer. Normally when I paint my nails I'm a nightmare for chipping my nails. I'm eager to try the 'Insta-Dri' top coat as I hate waiting for my nails to dry! It's safe to say when I do run out of this I shall be repurchasing this little gem!

Catch My Breath.

Hiaa Lovelies!!
 
So I've been waiting for inspiration to hit me all day for today's blog post. 10pm came still nothing. Casually sitting here listening to some music and inspiration hit me. This again is going to be another short post this evening. Much like last nights but I feel that's refreshing considering Monday's lengthy one!
 
 
 
So I used to love Kelly Clarkson. I still do but she's one of those old time favourites that I kind of forget about every now and then. When I remember I normally go on a massive hype of listening to all her songs and get a little 'fan girl' like haha! This particular song I do love. It's a really positive upbeat song with a good message. I listen to the lyrics when I listen to songs. The part I've shared with you is the part that I feel stands out to me the most at the moment. It's most fitting for my life at the moment! Any songs or parts of songs stand out to you in this way?!
I hope you've had a lovely evening!
A beauty post will be up tomorrow I promise!! :-)
 
 


20 seconds.

Hia lovelies!!
 
I had a two hour nap this evening and was umming and ahhing whether to post or not. I decided I would even though it's really late here I thought why not.
 
 
I love this quote. It's from we bought a zoo. It's a quote that really stands out to me. To be honest I could see myself using this with certain situations. A lot of the time we won't do something because we're afraid of the outcome. Taking that risk is what this quote is about I feel. To be honest if you don't take a risk you'll always find yourself later down the line thinking what if?! That's the worst because then you start with regrets etc. So next time you're thinking oh I don't know and umming and ahhing about something, just remember twenty seconds. It's all you need.

HUGE BOOTS HAUL!

Hiaa Loveliess!!
 
So yesterday I uploaded my 'Boots Haul' word of warning it's a lengthy video and I'd suggest possibly get some munchies and a drink before you even attempt to watch it! If you haven't seen that then I shall link it below;
 
Also before I get into this lengthy blog post I have made a youtube channel for all my extras and bloopies! Vlogs shall also be on this channel! To go check that out and subscribe the link is below;
 
£1 each can purchase these from Boots & Wilkos.
I'm a HUGE face mask lover. Could even say that I'm slightly obsessed. These are great especially if my skin has been a bit on the rubbish side. It's almost like a refresher to try and sort my skin out. I'm excited to try these ones. I've tried others from this range before and I'm a fan!
 
£2 from wilkos also sold in boots. I paid £1 (on offer)
A little bit of a personal one haha! I figured though this is a deodorant that I've used for ages now and I love it. I prefer a roll on to a spray and I figured this is something everyone uses every single day! Or I should hope anyway ;) Affordable, long lasting and does the job!
 
£8.99 from Boots. Can also find this in Superdrug etc.
I adore this foundation! In my opinion this is a must have for summer! It gives the most radiant glow on the skin that's not too much! It makes my skin look super healthy which I love! The wake me up foundation has been a firm favourite of mine for a good few months now. I purchased at the beginning of the year in the shade ivory. I purchased this one in classic beige ready for when I get darker in the summer.
 
£6.99 purchased from Boots. Also avaliable from Superdrug etc.
Again another firm favourite of mine. I've had this foundation in my collection since last July. I love it hands down. It is super long-lasting, afforadble, medium coverage (buildable), feels lightwight and generally amazing. I again have this in ivory but for the summer picked up classic beige. Rimmel really do have some amazing foundations, I feel it is one of their strong points.
 
£4.19 from Boots. (apparantly you can also get from Superdrug)
This concealer is a little gem. It's been flying about the youtube and blogging world for such a long time. I only jumped on the band wagon the beginning of this year! My goodness why didn't I invest in this a long time ago?! It's amazing. Considering it's so cheap it really is amazing. It covers everything, blemishes, redness and under eye circles! I really cannot praise this concealer enough! I purchesed this in fair however I also have it in light.
 
£4 a box (got 2 for £7.50) was £5.49.
This is a holy grail product for me. I've used this hair dye ever since I got into the phase of dying it purple! Now I'm onto the red phase. I normally use 'Real Red' but this time I've opted for something a bit darker and less orange toned. So I purchased this in Red Passion. I'm excited to try this one! I dye my hair not even every six weeks it's normally longer than that. Normally I decide it's time to when my roots are noticable.
 
£2.99 each I paid £2 a can, I purchased 2.
I was reminded over a month ago now how much I used to love this scent. The fact this seen as a men's 'deodorant' doesn't even bother me. I love this scent and it couldn't possibly bother me. I love it and plan to carry on using it haha. Anyone else like a certain Lynx scent? I know the chocolate one is quite popular with women!!
 
£4.29 from Boots.
This brush I purchased because I saw this mentioned in Zoella's favourites I'm sure many of you know who she is. I wanted to give it a go! I love teasing my hair. I don't go too mad simply because it isn't the best thing in the world for your hair. However with that being said this is an amazing brush and I love it. It does the job perfectly and is inexpensive.
 
£1 from trusty Poundland ;) £1.90 from Boots take your pick ;)
Again possibly getting a little personal here but this stuff is amazing and making your skin feel as smooth as a baby's bum! This is amazing for shaving your legs! It leaves them feeling super smooth! I don't know about you but I'm all about smooth legs so this is a win win for me!
 
£2 from Asda on roll back originally £5.
I tried looking for this in Boots but had no luck finding it. I love this! So far I've used it once but I really do love it. This is the type of product that I would not use more than once a week, probably once every two weeks. It's a deep conditioner and you leave it in for 5 minutes. I love how my hair feels after using this. It doesn't weigh my hair down either! I'd buy this even at full price definetly worth the pennies!!
 
£4.69 I paid £3.12 from Boots.
Boots currently have quite a few offers on, across the make-up and skincare side of things with 3 for 2. They've also got promotions on Tresemme which they normally do. If you can't tell I'm a little obsessed with their products they are amazing. It makes me wonder why I listened to negative comments about their products. They also smell amazing which I believe I made that point clear in the video haha!!
 
£7.50 from Boots. Also find this in Superdrug etc.
This is another product that's holy grail for me. I don't exactly tan as much as I'd like in the summer. I thought I'd give this ago last May. I was very sceptical about trying it as the Johnson's one I found went streaky. This does not go streaky and builds a really nice natural looking tan. I wanted to pick a big bottle of this up as I love it so much. I cannot praise it enough, if you're looking for a product like this then give it a go! I have the deep sunkissed look one there is a light one.
 
£3.25 a pack from Boots. Can find these pretty much everywhere!
Facial wipes are a must have for me. I cannot live without these. I use them every single day! I use them to remove the majority of my make up and then go on to do my skincare routine. I love these they are super gentle on the skin, and they don't irritate my skin. This is a must for me because I do have quite sensitive skin. Certain products break me out like something rotten! I can see these becomming a holy grail product for me!
 
£5 from Asda. Also purchase from Boots, Superdrug etc.
Again was sceptical with this product simply because it's a tad pricer than the Batiste dry shampoo which until now has been somewhat of a holy grail product for me! (how many times am I going to use that term in this post?!) I love this so much! IT really does work. It refreshes my hair and makes it feel like I've just washed it! I don't wash my hair everyday or every other day I normally can go 4 days! I never used to but dry shampoo I've found is the key to this! I really don't mind splashing the pennies on this little beauty. Completly worth every penny I'd say!
 
£2.50 from ASDA.
Well if you've seen the video you will know my one kindly broke haha!! Long story quite amusing but I do love this brush! It's going to be featured in my March favourites which shall be up Sunday ;) Spoiler for you, how nice am I?! Anyway, I use this brush everytime I've washed my hair to style my fringe. I love it and again I cannot live without this. Affordable and does the job!
 
£1.50 from ASDA.
OH SURPRISE... another pair of cross earrings. Needed them.. totally :) Anyway spotted these.. I have a pair in a gold metal however decided I needed them in silver too :D At £1.50 I don't think you can go wrong! I love cross earrings and I enjoy wearing these!
 
£2.97 from ASDA.
Looks quite interesting I know haha. This door hook contraption is to hang my scarves on. Surprisingly I've managed to put them all on one. I thought I might have to go back and get another but no it works fine. If I get anymore I will have to purchase another. When I was filming the haul I did think I was going to poke my eye out with it haha!!
 
£2.99 from The Works. Avaliable from Waterstones etc.
I got this from The Works. I'd been meaning to pick it up for a while but everytime I went in they didn't have it!! As The Works sell them cheaper they sell out quickly! Anyway I'm currently on this series so I wanted to pick up the latest one! I do love these! If you're looking for an interesting take on the vampire world then do give these a go :)
 
£12.99 from Sainsburys.
OH HELLO... WHATS THAT?! Haha totally not obsesed... I LOVE The Twilight Saga. I pre-ordered this from Sainsburys. Nothing else needs to be said apart from the fact I honestly feel this is the perfect ending to an amazing series. I feel the films get better and these just proves my point. I laughed, cried and even shook throughout haha! Anyways if you love The Twilight saga and don't have this then go pick it up now! That's an order ;)
 
£12.50 from Amazon.
This shiny new palette is a BHCosmetics palette. I adore it so much. It's their 28 neutral palette and I shall be doing a full review of it once I've played around with it a little more ;) Great value for money, the eyeshadows are highly pigmented and super easer to blend! You could also use a few of these for either highlight, blush or bronzer!
 
£12.50 from Amazon.
OH LOOK... IT'S MORE BLUSH.. haha, slightly obsessed! Now you cannot look at this palette and tell me that you wouldn't be sucked in by it's amazingness. I was umming and ahhing about this for ages and to be honest I'm glad I just picked it up anyway. The orange one really stands out to me ;) All things orange and that you know how it is! I've used three of these so far and they're so pigmented! Amazing quality and totally affordable! Really would recommend BHCosmetics palettes!!
 
Okay, so that is all for my haul! I feel like I've been tapping away for hours which I have nearly two and a half to be precise ;) I did think this would be lengthy! If you've made it to the end then well done haha! Next Monday I hope to get back to doing FOTD's strangely I feel odd as I haven't posted one in a few weeks! I hope you've all had a lovely day!

When I got home from work I spent my afternoon playing guessing games with two of my nieces, Keira and Beth. To be honest I never knew something like that could be so entertaining!!

Wish List! / Hann's Rambling's #4.

Hiaa Lovelies!!
 
So I figure everyone has a wish list of products in my eyes beauty products that they cannot wait to get their hands on! Now for me this is lip products and nail products mainly. I'm after the other three Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. Why?! Because I think they're absolutely amazing. I've done a full review on these, if you haven't seen that then I'll pop the link below;
 
Another thing that has been taking the beauty and blogging world by storm is the Rimmel London Apocolips Lip Lacquers. I'm so eager to get my hands on these and I promise the next time I'm down town I'm going to. Partly because Boots sent me some coupons with lovely little offers which is just that little push I needed! Not that I really need encouraging! I've heard nothing but good things about these and the colour pay off looks amazing! £5.99 each is not bad and plus boots have 3 for 2 offers on at the moment so they are at the top of my wish list!
 
Next up the Nivea Lip Butters. So I picked one of these up yesterday in Raspberry Rose and so far I LOVE it! Which of course has made me look into see if there are anymore flavours. At £1.99 each I can't really complain. There's an original version too however I'm not really looking for that one! Caramel Cream is the one that I cannot wait to get my hands on and these are avaliable at Superdrug!
 
Moving swiftly onto nails, it's no surprise that I'm a lover of nail polish. Miss Sporty nail polishes imparticular are the ones I'm wearing on my nails constantly at the moment! These retail at £1.99 and although they are slightly smaller than other nail polishes I own I still think you cannot go wrong. They have a brilliant colour range, are fast drying and long lasting! I never or it's very rare for me to use up a complete bottle of nail polish! These you can get from Boots and Superdrug and I plan to pick up some more on my next beauty spree!! I shall also have a review of these coming up soon too!
If you want to check any of these products out then you can find them on these websites;
 
Moving on.. I feel this post is going to be a little all over the place because I wanted to do a wish list mixed with a ramblings update post haha!!
 
 
Okay so this week has been 'busy' ish. I finally got round to sorting out my mass obsession of scarves! I've got a door hook that hooks over the door.. obviously that's why it's called that! You will see that in part 2 of my haul which shall be up Sunday! It fits all my scarves on there perfectly as long as I don't buy anymore!!
 
So I've been kind of digging through my make up collection this week and discovering things that I'd totally forgotten about. It's safe to say I've fallen back in love with products that I used to use all the time!! Talking about favourites I cannot believe that it's nearly the end of this month. That means that it's nearly time to film a new monthly favs! It feels like I only just did last months! This month though I don't really think there's going to be as many products simply because nothing has really changed!
 
My niece Stacey about a month ago put in a request saying she wanted Chocolate Cupcakes with 'muddy' (chocolate) sprinkles and white chocolate buttons. Well it's safe to say she got her wish! As we didn't see her on her actual birthday (last saturday) I made them wednesday, as we saw her yesterday. She is now 3! I cannot believe how quick they grow up! I decided though I wanted to put her name on them and then the rest I went for 3's as you can see above!! She really loved them!
 
Other than that not a lot has really happened this week apart from me discovering my hate for removing nail polish! I really do hate removing it, it's such a chore! Anyone else like that?! especially from toes!! I finally repainting my toes a nice pastel blue, I'm kind of getting into spring colours now however it's raining outside!!
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and I'll be back Monday with hopefully the usual FOTD! :)

Eyeliner and Lippy?!

Hiaa Loveliess!!
 
If you're looking at the title and thinking what a weird combination then I wouldn't blame you haha!! For about the past week without fail I've found two products that have become a staple in my make-up routine. I shall be doing full reviews on both products in the future. As of right now though I wanted to share them with you!
 
 
Right so first off the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Eye Kohl has been a staple in my make up routine the past week. I don't normally use black on my waterline as I find it too harsh. Lately though I've been absolutely loving it. Of course it's rare to find me without my black winged liner but normally if I do go with eyeliner I use a brown as it's less harsh. I've even gotten into tightlining my eyes. I've found this pencil is bloody brilliant for doing this. The formulation of this pencil is lovely! It's super smooth so it doesn't drag or pull on your eye. I put this on in the morning and true to it's name stays on all day! I absolutely love it!
 
Lippy, well I'm a huge fan of it an probably own too many! With that being said I'm always on the lookout for new ones! Well I know we're in spring now however my lippy seems to be getting darker! I purchased some NYX Round Lipsticks a while a go and to be honest am I only just trying them out now. I've stumbled across a little gem. The shade Snow White I've absolutely fallen in love with. It's a vampy red which would be great for autumn or winter. However I'm loving wearing it at the moment and I reach for it everyday at the moment! It's really creamy and stays put for a good few hours. I've been using it with a Lip Liner too from NYX. I believe it's in the shade Aburn, which makes it last even longer. I shall have full reviews of their lippy's and lip liners soon!!

Music.

Hiaa Loveliess!
 
So lately I've been noticing my music taste has been jumping about all over the place. Kind of like it's on a rollercoaster that starts off slow and then goes full speed going through loops, twists and turns.
 
(quoteson.tumblr.com)
 
I stumbled across this picture and to be honest I thought about how fitting it actually is. I've been listening to a lot of Boyce Aveue to be honest they put me in a good mood. The past week or so that has completly changed. I've been listening to a lot of bands I'd forgotton about. You Me At Six, Switchfoot, Breaking Benjamin, Staind, Linkin Park, Lost Prophets, We The Kings etc I've been finding this is all fitting my current mood a lot better.
 
I'm someone who really takes in lyrics. I use music like in the picture as an escape. It explains how I feel when I can't put it into words. Taylor Swift is the main artist I've been listening to at the moment. Her songs and lyrics are so fitting for me. I personally cannot go a day without listening to music, any of you like that?! If so you'll know what I mean when a song just grabs you by it's lyrics. That's what I love.
 
Often I can find myself just putting my headphones in and saying goodbye to the world. Once I do that I'm in my own little world, where I'm just listening to the lyrics. I especially love listening to music in the bath I find it helps me to unwind! I realise this post is a bit of a deep one haha! Back to beauty tomorrow, just wanted to change it up a little!

HAUL; New Look & Matalan etc.

Hiaa Loveliess!
 
So as I posted quite late last night I wanted to make it a quick post! Lazy I know haha! As the first part of my HAUL video went up Sunday I thought I'd do the blog post to accompany it. If you haven't seen that video then you can check it out here:
I really enjoyed filming this video! I love showing you guys what I've bought and it seems to be quite popular with you too!
Anyway part 2 will be up this coming Sunday, which has some really interesting bloopers. Part 2 for some reason was a lot harder to film I was in a really weird mood. Needless to say there's some comical moments and just plain typical Hann moments.
 
Moving on, two weeks ago I went shopping with my mum. Bad idea. One, I spent too much money. Second, I don't feel the slightest bit guilty. It was one of those shopping times that I think I needed.. Every girl needs a bit of retail therapy. Of course I went into Boots and you'll see why this is not included in this part because I got a lot. My mum dragged me into New Look. Normally I have a curse with that shop I cannot leave without buying something. I didn't realise they had a sale on either. Now if I know somewhere has a sale on I normally come out with nothing. To my surprise and my bank balance I actually bought six yes six items! It came to £25 which isn't too shabby in my eyes and I was really pleased with what I got.
 
£3 was £7.99
As you can see it's striped with a slightly darker purple. I love the little detailing on the back with the cut out piece. There is a button at the top as well which I love. This is a slouchy top which I love as I wear them with leggings or jeggings! I feel this was a steal!
 
 £5 was £7.99
I love this! I saw it and immediately fell in love with it! I love the white specs on it and I love the navy colour. I'm really into navy and Burgundy at the moment! Kinda makes no sense as it's now spring and I seem to be swaying towards darker colours still! Anyway this top I would probably wear a strappy top underneath as it is quite see through! The button detailing also caught my eye in the shop! Each to their own liking though! It's slightly longer at the back which makes it great to wear with leggings.

 
£4 was £7.99
Okay So I really don't know why this one was slightly cheaper all by £1 than the navy one but I'm not complaining! This one is the exact same only in a off white cream colour. It has little brownish grey and yellow specs on it which I love. Detailing on the neck is the exact same with buttons down the front. Also in the same style as the navy is also longer at the back. I've worn this top twice now infact I am currently wearing it haha! It is safe to say I do love this top!
 
£4 was £9.99
This was the last top I picked up. This isn't something I'd normally go for but it has studded detailing on it which I really love and it pushed me to buy it! Not only that it was £4.. I feel like that was a steal and I just had to buy it haha. I've worn this top once with a pair of black jeggings. I did an OOTD post which I shall link below:
It was one of those impulse buys where I syked myself up even though it's not something that is in my normal comfort zone.
 
£7 was £14.99
This little gem I found right at the back where they've got a sale area but it's so tucked away I'd of walked right past it. I was browsing through when I came across some denim jackets. Then I spotted this little beauty. I was after a denim gillet last summer but didn't find any I liked! I love this partly because it's light wash denim! I have a thing for light wash denim! I cannot wait to start wearing this when we get some warmer weather! This look perfect with maxi dresses! I think this was the item I was the most excited about!
 
£2 was £3.99
This was another little gem I managed to spot in their jewellery sale. I found a lot of the earrings in the sale weren't anything amazing and that I could justify buying without the fact that they were just in the sale. For that reason I stuck to the one pair. I love these. Feather earrings are a complete obsession for me right now. The fact these are on studs are even better. I love the little chain detailing on them where you've got these little spike/tooth like shapes on the end of the chains. I've worn these once so far and I can honestly say I shall be wearing them a lot more!
 
Moving onto Matalan now. For those of you that don't know I do work at Matalan so I could of just gone into the store however I was looking for some photo frames. I got two packs of three which are just the stand 6x4 measurements. A pack of three was £5 however I get staff discount which is 20% so they cost me £4. I also got a photo frame which is bigger and holds 12 photos. This retails at £15 but I paid £12. I shall link a blog post which I featured this in so you can see what it looks like below:
I will hold my hands up and say that's not the only things I purchased haha! I got browsing which normally in my eyes means looking at things I don't really need but purchase anyway. I purchased four other items which I'm happy to say I'm pleased I bought!
 
JEGGINGS: £10 each. I paid £8 (staff discount)
I couldn't be more happy about this purchase to be quite honest with you. I was sceptical to see how good these jeggings would be as I've never owned any before. I am so impressed I'm going to purchase some more because I love them so much. I'm not a jeans person anymore I only wear them on nights out and occasions. These are perfect. As you know I love leggings so this is just a match made in heaven for me! I purchased them in the bleach wash (top left), Medium wash (top right) and black (bottom middle). I'm probably going to purchase another three pairs in the near future as I'm going to get a lot of wear out of these and for £10 a pair I don't think you can go wrong! They are lovely quality and I'd recommend them!
 
£14 I paid £11.20 (staff discount) Front of bag.
 


£14 I paid £11.20 (staff discount) Back of bag.
So this lovely little gem that I've been eyeing up for over a month now I finally purchased. I was umming and ahhing about the colour mainly. You can get this in black, brown and cream. I haven't had a favourite black bag in a while so I thought it was time to get a new one. I love the fact this is studded infact it makes me love it even more! It has two tassels on the front which you can loosen and tighten for opening and closing. As well as their being a popper opening and closing on the bag. (I phrased that so well haha) It also has a side pocket inside with a zip. I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of this bag. It's bigger than the bag I have been using. The bigger the bag I have the more junk I put in it haha!
 
I hope you enjoyed this type of blog post from me! I enjoy these types of posts especially I just don't do them often they are very time consuming!

Bloopies!

Hia Lovelies!!
 
So I realise for the past few mondays I've been posting FOTD's religously. Well this Monday I've decided to change it up a little! I've spend the majority of my weekend editing. Boy did it take a while. I'm currently putting together a video of bloopers for my get to know me tag. There were too many bloopers to put at the end of the video! I've decided though for every video I film in the future if there aren't too many I shall pop them at the end. If like the get to know me tag there's a lot then I'll make a second video for bloopers and extras!
 
I've seriously taken a major liking to dark vampy red lippy and a lot of black eyeliner ha. I think it's where my current mood at the moment is quite low. I normally opt out for black liner on the waterline but at the moment everyday it seems to get thicker! Of course the smokey eye is also being rocked with my new lover.. bhcosmetics 28 colour neutral palette. To go along with that the bhcosmetics 10 colour blush palette. They're currently like my babies haha! I'm so excited to actually review them both as they are so pigmented and I know I'm going to get a hell of a lot of use out of them.
 
I've noticed whilst filming I do pull some of the oddest faces and perhaps some of the most crazy ones too! If you guys don't already know I do have a facebook page now. This is where I can post updates for new vids, blogs and any other random photos! I feel this is an easier way to keep you guys in the loop!
 
 

 
So as you can see snapshots from some videos to come in the future a tad crazy :D But that's just me in a nutshell really!
I hope you guys have a good Monday!
 
Laters!
