My top three under-eye concealers(drugstore)//COLLAB WITH PRETTYRAINCLOUDS

Hello everyone,
We've all been there with late nights.You might have spent a fabulous,fun filled night partying or a boring day studying away into oblivion then wake up the next morning with hideous and dark 5 o'clock shadows accompanying your face.Sadly sweetie,you know it ain't pretty because dark circles can just make people appear unhealthy*sad face* and err not so radiant and happy as usual-however we all know about the magic of makeup right?

Makeup obsessed?Why YOU should go makeup free more often

Hello everyone,
Have you ever had an "ughh" moment with makeup?Well this is the post where you lil' makeup addicts out there will learn about the fabulous reasons why the war paint should be put down and given a rest.

Unfortunately,in this day and age with social media like Instagram giving us unrealistic expectations I suppose we all have to admit that the pressure to look good 24/7 has become the norm.Afterall,who doesn't like a good selfie?Those perfected cheekbones look bomb,gotta get that them brows on fleek and ohh those 90's lips:love,love,love!However,is it all that really necessary for a trip down the shops and a lazy day at home?Eh not really and the scary thing is that some of us forget this.

My fear of growing up

Hello everyone,
When I was three I thought that adulthood was a world away but today in 2016 my worst fears have come TRUE...well almost anyway.I'm not quite an adult yet but soon will get the taste of that life which to be honest is a mix of emotions-excitement,shock,worry you name it its all there!

My fear I'd say is the biggest concern because it's such a huge leap into the unknown,in the space of a day(my birthday)I'll get the rights to sign everything myself,get a job amongst many other things.

I thought I would do an updated skincare routine because my skin has made fab improvements and I desperately yearned to share the new products I'd bought which were down to it!

My last skincare routine:

4 product makeup look challenge

Hello everyone,
I love a good challenge...especially a makeup related one!So today I shall be bringing you a natural,everyday makeup look using just four products(yes babe,you heard right).

Multitasking products is super useful!For an instance it can be great for those starting out in makeup and perhaps don't have a "good enough collection",on a budget or travelling.

Benefit minis:The Collection so far

Hello everyone,
As a teenager who can't really afford a lot of high end or even just premium makeup but desperately wants to,minis are a godsend!Not only are they way more affordable and within pocket money price ranges("Err why don't you save up?"Bruh...with the latest magazine shouting your name plus Youtube merch who can resist spending a couple of pounds here and there?)but they offer a way to give products a go before you finally decide to purchase the full sized version and they're also exquisitely travel friendly.Lastly,just look at them-aren't they adorable?

Top 'must-haves' in my school bag//COLLAB WITH SRINKLE OF FLO xo

Hello everyone,
How are you all?I'm good but at the same time I'm rather sad.Why?One word:School.Need I say anymore?

As a little celabatory post of us students going back I thought that I would share my top 10 must-have things(in no paticular order),that I always make sure are carefully tucked away in my school bag-after all I'm sure you've all had a moment where you've suddenly gone,"Dang!Where'd that go?"
After reaching into your bags only to find what you need isn't there.

Korean skincare haul

Hello everyone,
If you follow my Instagram(cheeky self promo alert!:Follow my Instagram here if you haven't already)you may have known that I traveled away for a 3 week break away from home which to be honest, wasn't all that relaxing as holidays should be
...I was a mosquitoes magnet*insert sad face emoji*.My poor body pulled them in like a girl pulling boys and I now look like a victim of extreme chicken pox-err not cute hunni!Plus on the the temperature side,damn was it hot.Everyday there felt like I was a raw chicken withering around in an oven soaking up thick,juicy sauce like a towel(aka sweat).

Anyway let's pull that my moaning aside and get on with what the post was supposed to be about!Whilst I was on holiday I decided to visit a few drugstores and upon going,I saw many skincare products which were unavailable to purchase in the UK;many of the products were what I was interested in buying so I went kind of crazy and bought quite a bit knowing full well that I needed really just wanted them.

Get to know me tag + 1 year blog anniversary

Hello everyone,
On the 23rd of July I would have celebrated my first ever year of blogging.At the time I was a teenager who had just finished a year in school and wanted a simple creative outlet to share my love of writing about beauty,fashion,life,homeware & everything and anything I liked to keep me entertained over the 6 week summer holidays.

July favourites 2016

Hello everyone,
Blimey it's been a while since I've done a post on my monthly favourites!It's probably got to do with the fact that I haven't really found any proper gems to talk about lately so I guess this post is kind of a round up of everything I have loved over the past couple of months.I'm sure you guys know that I would never recommend products just for the sake of it right?

How to conceal acne scars & spots like a pro

Hello everyone,
Acne,acne,acne-it's the dreaded nemesis who loves to strike whenever it bloody well likes!Ohh what I would do to go back to those days of soft,clear,naturally 'airbrushed' skin before hitting puberty torture(ughhh).

Fear not though there are numerous super hero products out there that treat spots,so they're not semi-permanently tattooed onto your face for god knows how long whilst other products can stop them from being a huge stand out.Take for example:makeup but with that comes the questions...How do you use it?How do you apply it?How do you stop it from looking cakey?

My adult checklist

Hello everyone,
Growing up eh?It's a funny subject,some of us can't wait and leap at the mention of it and well others?...I suppose they dread it.

Knowing one day you're going to be thrown into the adult life seems pretty scary as a teenager,I mean after all there's no more security of mum and dad,the bank of mum and dad or mum and dad's free taxi service!The list could go on,growing up for most means learning to rely on yourself and of course heaps of responsibilities.

My spring & summer wishlist 2016//COLLAB WITH LAUREBELLE

Hello everyone,
I meant to do this post probably at least month or so ago but to be honest,it just didn't feel right.Yes of course spring had begun but the weather was awful(and it kind of still is)so I put the idea off till I possibly could;Which was now...June,which I find is the time the weather slowly but surely,gets warmer.

10 thoughts I had when makeup-free

Hello everyone,
Let's face it,you either wear makeup regularly or you don't.I'm the type of girl who wears makeup regularly(in fact pretty much daily)and when I braced my 100 percent makeup free face for 2 entire weeks to the world on holiday,I learnt a few things.For that reason I thought I'd type up a post on my blog sharing 10 thoughts I had as I went through those days.

My night routine:After school edition //COLLAB WITH VIEAVECCHARLOTTE

Hello everyone,
I'm currently pre-writing this post on a Monday after school and oh my goodness let me tell you how tired I am!I was soo close to falling asleep today during last period but luck was with me as the bell rang literally as I was about to do so(thanks bell for saving me the embarrassment!).Close call I'd say so I've definitely learnt my lesson;Don't go to bed at 12 pm unless it's a Friday or Saturday night...well basically if you're 100% free from school the next day.

DIY:Honey and cinnamon facemask(for oily/acne prone skin)

Hello everyone,
I rarely slather liquid that you leave on your face for 10-20 minutes so I suppose you could say facemasks tend to be a treat for me once in a while.However,when I do decide to go the extra mile to pamper my skin my favourite DIY mask to make is a honey and cinnamon one which I've decide to share with you all today.

The ultimate spot blasting mask is quick and simple meaning even the laziest can "do it yourself."In fact the most difficult step is of making this mask is probably mixing it together if I'm honest!

What's in my carry on bag?

Hello everyone,
Regular readers of this blog would probably have wondered where I disappeared off to by now so let me explain,basically I was away holiday for the entire duration of the 2 week Easter holidays.I was supposedly going to schedule this post but I was quite busy with school and didn't have the time to write the post up or take pictures.When I got back and started school again I was swamped with revision for numerous test we were to have in a the coming few weeks so I ended up announcing on an Instagram post that I was to take a break and return to normal on the 8th of I hope that kind of clears the issue up on why theres been no posts for over a month.

Collective clothing,makeup & haircare haul

Hello everyone,
If you know me,you would've realised by now I love a bit of retail therapy.
This post was supposed to be dedicated completely to clothing originally but my shopping trips lately haven't been very successful unfortunately.I think its mainly because its the awkward time where it's still cold enough to be winter but nearing spring,meaning I've put off buying the "wintery" clothing I know I won't want to wear in the coming month.As a result,I decided to just merge together all my latest purchases from the past month or so to create a mixed collective haul.Enjoy...

The ultimate no makeup,makeup look

Hello everyone,
I've seen several youtube videos on the no makeup look(my favourites probably the one by Estee Lalonde or formally known as Essie Button which you can check out here: none have been as ultimate as the one I would personally offer,so I thought why not?Let's show it off on my blog!

My makeup story tag

Hello everyone,
Today I thought I would do the makeup story tag because it's been a while since I've done one and I reckon it would be pretty interesting to look back on in a few years time to see how much my opinions on the questions have changed(especially since I still kind of consider myself a beginner as I began properly wearing it not so long ago).

Collection Lasting Perfection VS Seventeen Staytime concealer|Review

Hello everyone,
I hope you're all doing well.Today I thought it would be a nice idea to to a comparison review on the similarish Collection Lasting Perfection and Seventeen stay time concealer because I have used them both on a daily basis for a while so have quite a clear idea on which I prefer,what I like about them,what I don't and why.

My three winter fashion staples//COLLAB WITH IZZYBOW

Hello everyone,
I realised I hadn't done any fashion related posts at all since I restarted my blog back in August despite labeling myself as a beauty,FASHION and lifestyle blogger(yup,definitely writing about all those)so I suppose it made sense to share my winter clothing staples to help cover all those subjects for this Sunday's post.You might have also noticed it's going to be a collab with another fellow blogger-Izzy writes similer posts on her blog but they're much more focused on makeup than mine are,so please do check her out for some really good makeup looks and recommendations if you're interested(!

Pamper night routine

Hello everyone,
I wish everyone a good and happy start to 2016!I have planned plenty of posts for this coming year as one of new years resolutions was to post at least every other Sunday without fail(that's a minimum of 24 posts for the next 12 months).Anyway,this week I thought I would share what I personally like to do on my pamper night routine,that happens at least once every week or two depending on my mood.
