TOPSHOP WISHLIST

Tuesday, 29 July 2014

It's that time again when my online basket gets filled up with some of my favourite items of clothing. I went into Topshop the other day and I saw so many gorgeous clothes that I just had to do a wishlist based on them. Hopefully this wishlist will help you have an insight of some of the clothes they have in store. 


Mono Palm Print Skirted Playsuit  As soon as I walked into Topshop, this gorgeous play suit was at the front of the store and it immediately caught my eye. The palm print gives it a nice summer feel, perfect for the summer days. 

Poppy Print Wrap Playsuit I love all the different colours of this play suit. So pretty and such a good play suit for summer. You could wear this as a pretty daytime dress or you could style it up with some heels and a necklace for a gorgeous night out look. 

Lace Front Playsuit I'd personally wear this play suit as a night time going out style. I love the contrast of the lace insert and I love how the dress is shaped to fit your figure. 


Floral Print Scallop Vest This top really does brighten up a pair of plain jeans or a black skirt. I love the floral pattern, and I also like how it has a slight pastel pink colour to it which is going to be perfect for the summer. 

Crepe Swing Vest Everyone's gotta love a good basic tee-shirt. You can simply style this grey swing vest with anything, weather it's jeans, skirts or even shorts. 

Wavy Organza Trim Tee If you know me then you'd know that I am slightly obsessed with crochet type tops as I think they can really make an outfit pop. I love the style of this top and I love the design of the cut out. 


MOTO Tile Print Leigh Jeans I have been eyeing up these jeans for ages now. I think I saw a video of someone wearing these and I instantly fell in love with them. They're so unusual but I just love it. The colour of them is insanely gorgeous.

Fantasy Floral Lace Runner Shorts These shorts would look amazing with a plain black cami top. They'd make a simple outfit look good. You could also use these as part of a clubbing outfit with some black chunky heels.

NEICE Chunky Sandals Recently, I've been buying so many shoes and I don't know what's gotten into me. I think I'm having a weird obsessive stage with shoes. These are so beautiful and perfect for those summer days - I love how chunky they are.

MY TOP FIVE: DRUGSTORE MASCARAS

Monday, 28 July 2014


When it comes to mascaras, I always tend to reach towards the drugstore types as I believe that there is hundreds of amazing drugstore mascaras that will work just as good as some high end mascara but for a much cheaper price. I have rounded up my top five drugstore mascaras that have worked wonders for my lashes. 

Kelly Brook Black Mascara | £3.99 I actually found this little gem whilst shopping in New Look a while back. First off, I'd like to mention about how beautiful the rose gold packaging is, just gorgeous. This mascara has a rubbery brush which is supposed to give off a fluttery effect on your eyelashes which I find it does exactly that. I would say that you'd need to apply a few coats of this mascara to get some volume because if I'm honest, it doesn't give off the best volume - although it leaves your eyelashes looking very butterfly(ish). 

Collection Supersize Fat Lash Mascara | £2.99 This mascara claims to be 'super-volumising for big, bold lashes'. This mascara does tend to smudge a tad underneath the eye at the end of the day but apart from that, it's one of my favourite mascaras I've tried out. It does give you big, bold lashes and it does have that volumising effect. You only have to use a good 1 or 2 coats of this mascara to see the full effects of it which is perfect because you know that this will end up lasting you a very long time. 

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara | £6.99 If you're looking for a mascara that makes your lashes look 10 times more longer then look no further than Rimmel London Scandaleyes. This gives you beautifully long and fuller lashes that last all day. I personally like using this mascara for my bottom lashes as I feel as if it separates them nicely as well as adding extra lengthening to my bottom lashes. The tube of this mascara is so thick and bulky that it lasts you for ages and I personally think that the thickness of the brush makes it a lot more easy to apply.

Rimmel Volume Flash x10 Waterproof Mascara | £5.99 Let me tell you, this was an absolute life saver! I bought this mascara purely because I was going to see The Fault in our Stars at the cinema and I knew for a fact that I would be crying by the time I get out. It worked perfectly. I applied this mascara just before I left and when I came out after crying out so many tears, I had no black mascara running down my face at all and it didn't budge once. I was so impressed and shocked at how well it managed to work. I now use this as a daily mascara. My eyes have a tendency to water a lot as I suffer from bad hayfever so I simply just use this mascara and I have no need to worry about it running down my face for the rest of the day. Simply amazing. 

Bourjois 1001 Lashes Mascara | £3.42 I like this mascara a lot due to the curved wand. It's supposed to follow the natural shape of your eye for a much easier and nicer application. I do find that this mascara can tend to clump a bit if you apply more coats as it does dry quickly and a lot of product goes onto your lashes, however if you use a single coat it will separate your lashes beautifully. It's a rubbery textured wand which is going to give you a fluttery effect on your lashes just like the Kelly Brook Mascara does. I also like to point out that this mascara does last long, it doesn't dry out too quickly therefore you could get a lot of use out of this product. 



What are your top five mascaras?

MY NECKLACE COLLECTION

Monday, 21 July 2014


As you can see I have my fair share of necklaces which I wear on an everyday basis. We all have that one specific item that we love collecting and mine happens to be necklaces! I just think they compliment any outfit whether it's a daytime look or an nighttime look. 

I store all of my necklace on this really pretty shabby chic styled jewelry holder along with a few other rings and bracelets, it looks very pretty in my room and I think it's a great way of storing jewelry as they don't get tangled or broken and you can easily pick out which one to wear for the day. Most of my necklaces are from Primark as I do love Primark necklaces, they may not be that long-lasting but they're so pretty that I just can't help but buy another necklace whenever I'm in Primark. 

Let's see your necklace collection?

THE BRITISH TAG



As I have probably said millions of times, I love reading/watching tag posts as I think of it as such a fun way of getting to know a blogger or youtuber. I recently came across The British Tag which was created by beauty crush (one of my favourite bloggers). I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and give this tag a go as I am British and it seems pretty fun. 


1 | How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How many sugars?
I have around 3 to 4 cups of tea a day. I'm always having two in the morning, one after my dinner and one just before I go to bed. (I do like a good ol' cuppa) I have 2 and a half sugars. 

2 | Favourite part of your roast?
Without a doubt it has to be the Yorkshire Puddings. They're so tasty and I don't think a roast dinner would be complete without Yorkshire Puddings.


3 | Favourite dunking biscuit?
I like quite a few dunking biscuits such as: Chocolate Digestives, NICE, Maryland Cookies and Rich Teas. 

4 | Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
I like going down to the beach and having a picnic with my boyfriend. I like taking walks around the lake and feeding the ducks. I also like to play badminton. 

5 | Favourite word?
This is very random but I've always liked the word 'Plonk'. I don't know why, I just think it's a really fun word to say. Plonk.. 

6 | Cockney rhyme slang?
Apples and Pears = Stairs, Dog and Bone = Phone - That's all I know haha. 

7 | Favourite sweet?
Wine gums are my favourite sweets ever. I also used to love those lollipops called Drumsticks, they were my favourite every time I went to the little corner shop after school.

8 | What would your pub be called?
I have spent ages trying to think about this question but I have no idea what I would call my pub (god I'm useless) I genuinely can't think of a name. 

9 | No.1 British person
Well it's obviously got to be The Queen for me. 

10. Favourite shop / restaurant
My favourite shop would have to be Topshop and my favourite restaurant is either Nandos or Frankie and Bennys. 

11. What british song pops into your head?
Who remembers the band 'Blue'? They instantly pop into my head as soon as I read this question. The song 'One Love' was my all time favourite when I was younger.

12. Marmite
No. Just no. Marmite doesn't do it for me I'm afraid. I think it tastes absolutely disgusting. 

I tag YOU

LUSH THE COMFORTER BUBBLE BAR REVIEW

BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX FOUNDATION REVIEW

Tuesday, 15 July 2014





Whenever I'm shopping in my local Boots or Superdrug store, I always find myself leaning towards the foundations. Foundations are one of my favourite makeup products without a doubt, I love trying out different foundations and I like seeing what foundation gives me the best finish for my skin. A couple of weeks ago, I bought the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and I have been using it for almost every single day since I bought it! 

This foundation is supposed to give you a radiant and flawless complexion for up to 16 hours and it's enriched with a fruit therapy formula. It contains apricot for radiance, melon for hydration and apple to protect your youth. This product is also filled with crystalline pigments to even out the complexion whilst letting in natural light for a healthy glow. 

I've found that Healthy Mix has a light to medium coverage but is very build able. It's a lightweight foundation therefore doesn't feel heavy on the skin which is what I like most about this foundation. I'd recommend using a primer before applying this product as some pores do tend to show up after a couple of hours. I apply this foundation by using my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush as I feel that it gives off the best dewy finish and leaves my skin looking flawless. I'd say this is more of a natural everyday foundation due to it's lightweight formula and medium coverage. Healthy Mix leaves a beautiful glow on your skin so I'd say that this foundation is more suitable for people with dry skin, therefore if you're someone who tends to have much more oily skin then I wouldn't recommend it for your skin type. 

Have you tried this foundation? What do you think?


LUSH MINT JULIPS LIP SCRUB REVIEW

Thursday, 10 July 2014





I have needed a lip scrub for a while as my lips have been dry as ever recently. I've heard all the hype about LUSH lip scrubs from various beauty bloggers, therefore whilst I was in LUSH the other day, I decided to pick up the Mint Julips Lip Scrub. 

This  lip scrub smells (and tastes) amazing. It's mint chocolate flavor which means it leaves a tingly sensation on your lips. I simply rub this product into my lips when I feel as if my lips are starting to get dry and flake, I rub it in circular motions for about 2 minutes and then I like to wash it off with a bit of water. It leaves my lips feeling so smooth and soft! It makes it so much easier for me to apply lipstick as it gives a more smoother application and also helps my lipstick last for longer. Funnily enough, this product actually tastes really good and you can lick this product off your lips once you've finished. (I personally don't do that though)


At just £5.25 I think this is such a reasonable price. The pot may look small, but you only need to use a tiny amount of product on your lips as a little goes a long way. The lip scrub comes in two more flavors which is Bubblegum and Popcorn.

ASOS WISHLIST

Monday, 7 July 2014

ASOS is one of my favourite online shopping websites. Whenever I'm on my laptop or phone, I always find myself on ASOS. Right now, they have a 50% off summer sale going on and I'm a bit overwhelmed at how much stuff there is that I want. I have made a wishlist of some of the items that I am loving at the moment and to give you a little insight of what they have in stock. 


1. Skater Dress in Floral Print I think this is really cute summer dress - floral prints are so cute and summery. I love the contrast of the dark navy blue with the bright floral colours.

2. White Mesh Insert Skater Dress This is such a basic yet beautiful dress, it would look fabulous as a pretty daytime dress but I think it'd also look amazing as a night out dress due to the mesh insert. 

3. Costa Blanca Crochet Dress This beautiful dress has to be my most favourite item on this wishlist - I love crochet detailing and I love the pastel blue colour it gives.



4. Oasis Leaf Jacquard T-shirt Cute little everyday top that you could pair up with black leather trousers, or even a black skater skirt for a night out. 


5. Peplum Cami Top A basic navy peplum top which you can style with jeans or leggings, and a cute statement necklace. 


6. Lace Godet Peplum Top Lace is really in fashion around spring/summer time, I think this top would look nice with a pair of jeans for day time or some disco pants for a night out. 




7. Floral Printed Culotte Shorts I'm really into printed shorts at the moment, I think they look really good with a plain cami top to give an outfit a pop of colour. 


8. Contrast Blocking Jumpsuit Jumpsuits have been a favourite of mine recently. I think they make a perfect night out outfit. I love the contrast of the white and pink block colours with this outfit. 


9. Textured Square Longline Bandeau Bikini Top High waisted bikini's are my favourite, I think they flatter out a figure nicely. I love this white textured set, perfect for a summer holiday or a day at the beach.

PAUL MITCHELL SUPER STRONG LIQUID TREATMENT REVIEW





When it comes to haircare products, I am all over them. I have been using this Paul Mitchell product for over a year and it's without doubt my holy grail product to keeping my hair healthy. 

This 'Super Strong Liquid Treatment' is for chemically-treated, damaged, weak or fine hair. It helps to repair and rebuild your hair using marine-derived extracts, UV protection and a "super strong complex" which helps to strengthen weak hair, replace lost nutrients and prevent breakage. 

I use heat on my hair almost daily and I colour my hair every few months or so. My hair is really fine and has a tendency to fall out every time I brush it or wash it. A hairdresser actually recommended this for me, and I have never looked back since. I use this by simply spraying it evenly onto freshly washed damp hair and I like to massage it into my roots. Since using this, I have noticed a lot of change in my hair - it's much more manageable and healthier. It still falls out (just like every hair does) but it's not as much as it used to be. I have noticed that my hair has gotten a lot more thicker since using this product and I've noticed that it doesn't weigh my hair down. 

Have you tried this product? What do you think?
