Christmas time, lipsticks and I

Top to bottom
Topshop inhibition
Topshop Mischeif
 MUA Shade 1
Mac Creme Cup
Revlon Raspberry Pie
Loreal Lip Pencil Burgundy 

Revlon Raspberry Pie: 
This lip butter is my day to day colour when my lips aren't in great condition. Raspberry Pie is a pinky redy colour which can be applied lightly for a day colour and overlayed for a deeper night colour. It lasts a long time considering its a butter and wears off very naturally. The finish is glossy however, its still very moisturising. I cannot wait to try more shades of lip butters.
MAC Creme Cup:
 I can only get away with wearing this lipstick in the winter, otherwise it completely washes me out and makes me look a little ill. However in the winter it is a perfect pinky/nude colour with a glossy finish. 
MUA Shade 1:
This lipstick is perfect for this season its a deep red with purple undertones making it a burgundy colour. The formula for a £1 is AMAZING. Its not moisturising on the lips but certainly doesn't dry them out either. It leaves a little sheen on the lips, which is exactly how i like it. 
Topshop Mischief:
Is my go to red that actually suit my skintone, i have a few reds although none of them i can really pull of except this one. It is extremely pigmented and lasts around about 4-5 hours. This is a great bold colour if you after something for a night out. 
Topshop Inhibition :
This is probably my most second used lipstick which is a bold purple colour. It is perfect to stand out this season, especially at school. It is a little on the dry side, but with lots of blistex its pefect.

Sunday Snippet...4 this time of year people are planning there new years resolutions and there outfits out for new years eve. But i'm just excited for the new year. Bring on 2013! For those who know me this year has been a tough year completely filled with stress, i cant wait for the new year. On new years day i will be posting my new years resolutions, although for a sneak peak check out my 'about me' page.

Please excuse the really bad picture of me, i just wanted to give you an insight in how good the MUA lipstick in shade 1 is. I literally cannot rave enough about it! 

I will be doing a 'what i got for Christmas  post when i go back home to my mums, so keep your eyes peeled.  Any links that you lovely people have of 'what i got for Christmas' posts would be appreciated as i love reading them. Probably as i'm interested as to what other people have been given. 

Sorry this was a bit of a rambly post, i do have a winter lips one coming up tomorrow though. I hope you all have had a lovely Christmas and fun fulfilled days off work. I wish you all a happy new year and all the best.

Wooo...just had a 4 day week, 4 day weekend and now i have a 4 day week again. Can not really say I achieved much this weekend though, apart from my college application form which has now been officially submitted. That's at least one more thing off my tick list. Tick list, tick list, tick list...obsessed I am with them things. I actually don't feel I can rest without ticking something off, hence the tiredness. 

After watching some recent Youtube videos about some very personal topics, I cannot thank them enough for posting them. So please if you haven't go and watch some of Sprinkle of Glitter and Zoella videos as they are very inspirational. 

I have found that my obsession with beauty related products is over taking my life, I mean room. So if any of you lovely followers have any storage ideas feel free to comment or tweet me them. Much appreciated. I thought I might post some more Sunday summary and In The Eyes Of Mine, what do you guys think :)  

I just thought that id mention my Twitter, Instagram and Youtube links down below :)
(I haven't quite got the hang of things over on Youtube yet, i promise ill get there in the end) 

Love you!

Hello lovely ladies! 
So today me and the beautiful Megan spent the day in Exeter central. We had/ well at least i had a great day shopping and picking up a few bits and bobs before I'm back at work tomorrow. In total I picked up 7 items with a lot of faffing around from the both off us plus one YUMMY Starbucks carmel coffee frappuccino. Within the seven items I purchased the closet dupe to the Naked 1 I have ever seen! Yes! Closer than the heaven and earth palette. And that would be the Undressed palette by MUA and the quality is awesome! Every single shadow in the palette has a dupe. I picked up a MUA lipstick in Nectar as well, please note they have taken there audiences opinions into consideration and named the products, I love them. I have to admit there was one disappointing thing in the day and that was being declined entry into a 15 at the cinema even though I am 15! All because I didn't take a passport of any sort of id! I mean who carries id at 15!! Certainly not me! Agh that made me so angry at the time. Anyways I wondered into to Topshop hopelessly knowing I wouldn't be able to stop myself although I was pleased to say I came out with two very reasonable items, both being ones I cannot purchase in my local store. And that was a velvet finish lipstick in Mischief for £8 and a Glitter polish in Ice crush which I applied a minute ago and I must say I love them both fewww! Whilst knowing me and Megan aren't really huge fans of Primark with still took a quick browse around and nothing really caught our eyes until on the way out when I saw the Zara safari jacket dupe just sitting on the rail waiting to be put away, so I grabbed it whilst it was still there and I am so pleased I did. As there was only five available especially as it was a bargain price for a coat at £25. Complete bargain compared to what there selling at on eBay. OH YEAH! One other reasonable purchase was an Accessorize swimsuit which is suitable yet still girly for swimming in so I can mend my legs, so for £14 in the sale I wasn't really going to complain. I must say the sizing is very odd so I spent a fair bit of time trying on the swimwear in Accessorize eventually settling for the last one i tried on, typical :P Sorry Megan! 
I'm going to love you and leave you know as I need my rest for work tomorrow.

Enjoy the rest of the week xx

 Hackney Weekend and T4OTB one weekend after the other, I feel very privileged to have gone to both and I have had the most amazing times, seen some amazing acts and spent lots of quality time with my dad and my best friend Megan. At Hackney Weekend I dressed quite casual and sensibly wore wellies (kids hunters) , however at T4 I wore a skirt and my studded shoes which was very stupid of me as the sand was practically water and my studs got soaked! During this week I will recreate my outfits and go over both of them in detail, as I feel I haven't done this in a very long time.  However to give you the brief I wore pink aztec leggings, grey vest top and a pink parka to Hackney, multi coloured dip hem skirt, grey vest top and my pink parka to T4. Compared to last year when i hadn't really been to a festival, I have know be to two sort of ones and I wish I had gone sooner!! I just love the way everybody dresses up and then chucks on a pair of wellies and dances to late hours of the evening! I hope your having lots of fun at festivals this year!  I SAW HUGO of Made In Chelsea!!!! I love him! & or course Jamie but sadly he wasn't there! :(

I also tried my first pair of false eyelashes on, and I shall admit i don't think ill be wearing them any time soon and they really didn't look right on me :L Maybes its because it was my first time, I'm not sure! Any tips??

Anyway I've gotta go catch up on some course work so I shall love you and leave you!

Enjoy your week! x

Wooo, Hello heat! *Thanks the Sun*

Long time no see yah, I miss you all! Apologies, I've been tied up in revision for one silly exam, which everybody (just me) wishes they never had. Yes English exam I'm talking about you! 1 hour and 45 minutes worth of it to be precise. Hay hoy its over now until next year, well the English ones are anyway, I still have 4/5 exams within the next month. YAY!...Jks But that's for another time.

As you may be able to tell I had a little (big) splurge on bits and bobs. I blame the shop assistants for displaying the items so nicely in there windows  -_- and forcing my purse onto the cashier desk with a load of lovely items! Whilst theirs me innocently not having a clue what is going on. On a plus side I came out with lots and lots of new items to make my wardrobe seem smaller than it is already is.

May 9th, May 9th was my 15th birthday which I got to open lots of lovely gifts and display them out nicely for photo number 5 and add them to my collection of increasingly growing things. Including my FIRST ever MAC lipstick, in the most famously known colour, Hue. Which I shall present my thoughts on to you in the future. Also I got a few other lippys as this seems to be my addiction recently  from Looks Beauty Range in Pink Punch and Rose Riot. I have to admit I LOVE Pink Punch its the brightest and most daring lipstick I have ever worn, my teachers don't seem to appreciate it though, oops. I'm not complaining thought due to the fact we do get away with quite a lot compared to some schools, as I have recently discovered.

Anyways I need my sleep now, otherwise I will not be able to open my eyes for work tomorrow.

I hope you all soak up as much sun as you can, whilst you can and have a very good weekend :)

Hello! ,
First off let me just say i am extremely sorry about the layout of this post, it would not put the images where i wanted them at all!
As you can probably tell from the text and the pictures i am absolutely obsessed with the colour mint green at the moment, following close behind is pastel yellows, purples and pinks. I think its an absolute gorgeous colour and perfect for spring/summer this year. I've also been trying to hunt down that mint green blazer everybody is talking about from primark, however i cant get my greedy hands on it, well in my size anyway :L 
I have recently left my old job at the butchers and starting a new one at a local attraction near where i live. I must say i am loving my new job and all the staff i work with, they are all very friendly. I will also miss the sarcastic jokes my old boss used to make although i will not miss the cleaning and the dreading thought of going to work!
I am thinking about asking for the Liz Earle cleanse, tone and polish set for my birthday this year, so i would love to hear your thoughts on it if you've tried it. I have tried the no7 hot cloth cleanser however it broke me out so am not sure whether i should put my money towards it. 
Anyway i must go and look after my brothers now, love you all!!

Happy Easter 

Hope you are all having a good week :)

This is a little post updating you on what I wore to my non uniform day at school :) Except the shoes you see in the picture are not the right ones as they got muddy from being at school. The shoes I actually wore are the blue and brown boat shoes from Primark for £8. Which is kinda strange considering I don't really like Primark that much :L The dress I wore was a crushed velvet scooped skater dress from Topshop, which I paired with a light denim jacket from Newlook and my Raymond Weil black and gold watch. It was a pretty basic outfit which is what I wanted after wearing my jacquard leggings and a denim shirt last time :L My week has been pretty good overall except from the fact that my best friends in Florida, jealous much!!! 

Hope you guys aren't too mad at me for not posting!

Have a great week/end!

Its A Healthy Mix

Hey :)

Newlook Foiled Cross Slashed Hem Vest - £11.99
RiverIsland Pink Floral Print Jacquard Leggings - £22.00
Boots Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum - £10.99
Collection 2000 Clear Mascara - £1.99
MAC Naked Lunch - £12.00
Yankee Candle Farmers Market - £7.99
Surely buying clothes, make up and a sweet smelling scent is healthy for you! Especially when one of your purchases contains fruit extracts. I sure believe that (Tell myself)! At the moment I am absolutely loving these legging, mostly I pair them with a denim shirt or jacket and my RiverIsland chelsea boots. Considering you would probably think that not many things would go with them, quite a lot of things do, so it was well worth the purchase.
 On the 16th of February I went shopping with my best friend for her birthday where I bought Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, which I have been dying to try out. So far it has been pretty good but I haven't really been able to try it out properly as I lost my duo fibre brush :( but hopefully I will be ordering the Sigma F80 soon :)  I also purchased a scrapbook which I have yet to start, I have a million ideas in my head though. I got a foiled cross vest for around £9, due to there being a 25% discount on the item. TOTAL BARGAIN!.
   A while ago I also got MAC Naked Lunch which I though would be a lot of a stronger colour than it actually is, although its still pretty and easy to wear. 

Hope the sun is shining where you are as it certainly has been where I live :)

Have a great week :)

In the eyes of mine...2

Hello lovelys ,
In the eyes of mine...

1. ♥ Topshop ♥ Moto High Waist Jamie Jeans ♥ £40.00 ♥ 
I love one tone jeans and have done for along time:) As i was scanning across the Topshop shop website on the jeans section these ones really stood out to me. I also think they would really fit it with SS12 pastel colours and would pair quite nicely with some deep berry colours from AW11/12 as well. 

2. ♥ Topshop  Mace Black Studded Toe Boots ♥ £36.00 ♥ 

3. ♥ Riverisland ♥ Cream Sleeveless Embellished Swing Shirt ♥ £35.00 ♥ 
I love how this shirt is so versatile as it could be paired with leather look leggings or aztec leggings for a bit of an edgy look or with light denim shorts for a cute girly look.  

4. ♥ Newlook ♥ Belted Lace Dress ♥ £17.99 ♥ 
I am normally a very trouser sort of person, but recently i have come to love dresses in the day time. I especially like this one because of the colour of the lace. Its also very versatile as this dress could quite nicely pair up with a show stopper pair of heels. 

5. ♥ Riverisland ♥ Cream Floral Print Swing Shirt ♥ £25.00 ♥ 
Shirts this past year i have fallen in love with, they look so effortless, yet classy and girly depending on how you dress them. This one i just love the floral print and i cant wait to get my hands on it. 

                                                      Anything caught your eye recently?

Glitter Bug

          HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 

Christmas and new year have both past and now we all have to settle back down again into normal routines. These pictures were taken on Christmas day, i just haven't managed to find time to post about them. I absolutely love the glitter i put on my 4th/3rd finger, depending on whether you class a thumb as a finger :L It suited the occasion perfectly. However because it was pure glitter therefore it did catch on clothing quite a bit, it didn't come off though :) I'm not sure whether the mink colour was very Christmasy or not but it was subtle  and i liked it :)  Anyway this was just a quick post to wish you all a very Happy New Year :) The nail colour i used was Looks nail pop in mink :) 

Hope you all had a wonderful new years eve and a great start to the new year :)
