This is my eye. That’s right.
I’m wearing my new Benefit mascara and I love how it opens my eye up (I have reeeeally small eyes!!) and contrasts against the blue. The wand really helped seperate my lashes and after this picture was taken I coated them again, and it made my lashes look insanely huge!
On Monday night I went out with my best friend Charlotte to a restaurant called Turtle Bay, which a caribbean place which also does 2-4-1 cocktails between 12-7pm.
We had amazing strawberry margheritas and apple & raspberry mojitos, and then I had calamari and a double dipped steak :) If that wasn’t enough, after having a wander around town we went into Bella Italia and split a massive Godfather icecream brownie sundae.
She also bought me a new charm for my Pandora bracelet (i’ll take a picture soon!) which symbolises hope, luck and faith. It’s really pretty and i’ll definately be adding onto my bracelet soon :)
Today I had the afternoon off so me and my mum went down to Benefit and had makeovers. My mums been a fan ever since I came back from my last makeover with Kim and she saw how different I looked. Once I told the sales assistant she’d never tried anything Benefit before, they went to town on her and she ended up spending £140 (which would have been £180 if not for my discount!!). I ended up buying the Sugarbomb blusher, and the new ‘They’re Real’ mascara.
Like I said before, pictures to follow :D
Owl Ring - £6.95, Bijou Brigitte
Festival Place is the only place that i’ve seen this shop and it is seriously like stepping into my own personal piece of heaven. It’s just completely full of cute necklaces, bracelet and quirky rings. There’s a section for each colour, and it’s impossible not to find something you love in there! So happy I bought this, and i’m kind of regretting not going back and buying more now :(
Sleeveless Gold Button Shirt - £12.99, New Look
I bought this to wear with my high-waisted flippy skirt that I bought from Topshop last week, as I recently saw on milkteef.com she was wearing hers with a sheer sleeveless shirt and I loved the way it looked! The colour is really in at the moment, and apparently suits my skin tone.
Andrea Fulerton Cute-Icle Groomer - £4.99, Superdrug
Since I got my first manicure on my natural nails a month or so ago, i’ve really wanted to keep them healthy and tidy. I’ve bought this, as being the Eco-concious girl that I am I don’t want to be using throwaway wooden cuticle sticks. However, I want to learn how to clean up my cuticles properly before I start prodding away at them so if anyone has any tips on how to do so it would be greatly appreciated if you let me know :)
Grey Slouch Socks - £1.50, Primark
These are to wear with my military boots, or with my uggs. To be honest, i’ll probably just wear them around my house with my pyjamas just because they’re so soft and comfy.
Nude Suede Wedges - £24.99, New Look
Words cannot express how much I love these! I’ve wanted some nude heels for ages, and was considering just buying normal platforms. However, these are a lot more comfortable to walk in and can be worn for both day and night. I can’t wait to wear them when I go out into town next.
Accessory Hangers - £2, Primark
I know these aren’t the most interesting things to post, but I just think they’re amazing to hang my necklaces on! When I go to uni i’ll be really short on space, so these will be amazing to hang up in my wardrobe.
Brown leopard print bag - £9, Primark
Ahh i’m so excited to wear this bag! I have a slight obsession with leopard print, and I love the fact that this bag has it only partially on it so it’s not too much! Let’s just hope it’s not horrible quality like my other Primark bags!
Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash - £3, The Body Shop
I got this because at the time I was having problems with spots, and because of my oily skin it doesn’t really help it at all. To be honest, i’ve only used it once since I bought it a week ago but even then my skin felt cleaner afterwards, like the facial wash had cleared up all of the impurities that you can’t get rid of just by using water.
I’m going to use daily as required and see how it goes.
Vanilla Fountain Bath Ballistic - £3 approx, Lush
After I passed out for the second time and was really groggy for the rest of the day afterwards, I asked my sister to pick me out a bath bomb from Lush so I could have a bubble bath and relax.
After putting it in the bath, I found it quite funny that the water turned neon yellow. It smelt amazing and left my skin feeling sooo smooth.
Rainforest Radiance Hair Butter - The Body Shop
I got this free when I bought my shampoo and conditioner :) It’s like a deep conditioning mask that goes on damp hair for about 2 minutes. After I used it my hair felt just as sleek and shiny as other conditioning masks, but this one is more eco friendly so I don’t feel guilty about using it.
Bourjois nail glitter, £5.99 - Superdrug
First of all, the bottle is absolutely gorgeous! And as soon as I saw the colour I knew I had to have it. The brush is slanted and has a ‘fan effect’, so you can apply the glitter in one sweep and takes a second.
The only annoying thing (And this isn’t about the product, more about nail glitter in general!) and is that it seems to shred my nail polish remover pads and doesn’t come off easily.
