here we go again <3

Hey guys so i thought i'd post a little update kind of thing as i haven't updated since monday which seems like a long time. Thankyou to all my new followers.
Soo i was thinking i'm going to london on monday through to wednesday so will be gone three days, and i thought maybe you guys could let me know some kind of things you want to see from this blog. Do you want more hauls, looks, outfits, fashion inspiration, photography?
So yeh and also i get some of my GCSE results on thursday of next week and im freaking out, i've got a feeling i 've done absolutely rubbish :/

Also i just want to give a little shoutout to a blog i've just been reading JUST today but her blog is truley an inspiration and thats Alice's blog (click here) and this is just a tag that i have taken from her blog she didn't tag me to do it, i just thought i'd do it because i love jumping on the bandwagon for tags :)

1. What is your favourite item of clothing? That I own? Well i have two of the same thing but type of clothing in particular would be the new style crop tops from topshop i have two and i ♥ them.
2. What are your biggest obsessions? Number one would definately have to be fashion magazines my family think i have a probablem in the last month and a half i've bought around 13 :?
3. Who inspires you? I have lots of inspirations, Diane Kruger being one of them she always looks gorgeous and her clothes are amazing. And Chloe Sevigny her style is so laid back yet so high fashion.
4. Who is your favourite designer and why? I'd have to say Marc Jacobs, his style is so bold, and he's not afraid to clash or use too much colour, he's an inspiration to be unique and different.
5. What is your favourite song ever? This is always hard as i change my favourite song when new ones come out, but despite its lack or words i'd have to say Bella's lullaby from the twilight movie i could listen to it all day.
6. What is your favourite song right now? As a teenager i get sucked in to all the teenage kind of songs so it would have to be Demi Lovato-Here We Go Again or Dizzee Rascal-Holiday
7. If you were a sweetie, what would you be? Hmm im not a sweetie kind of person so i'd have to say, those old willy wonka sweets called Nerds. So a nerd haha :)
8. What's your favourite film? The Notebook.
9. Who's your favourite actor/actress? Hmm i don't have any specifics at the moment but i love Rachel McAdams. Actors: Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Zac Efron, Cam Gigandet, Adam Broody.

Young age was a princess :) then around 7 years old i wanted to be a teacher then in year 8/9 it was fashion designer and now makeup artist or interier designer something to do with designing or photography.
15. If you were an ice-cream, what flavour would you be? Cookie Dough
16. If someone made a short film about your life, who would play you? Hmm probably someone like Miley Cyrus because of the age and kind of looks, cheesy but :/ otherwise probably someone like Jennifer Anniston because shes an amazing actress.
17. What would your perfect afternoon consist of? Shopping in London, then having tea at somewhere like pizza express then getting ready with friends, makeovers taking pictures then partying all night.
18. If you were a flower, what would you be? A rose, bold and beautiful :) not that i am, but i would like to be.

AWOL and Little Bits (Longish Post)

Hey everyone, so sorry for being a tad AWOL this week, iv been a very busy girl out and about, here there and everywhere. I've been to leeds, the CCO in York, iv been on long walks. You name it iv done it. So anyways i'l show you what i've picked up during my recent outings so starting with 2 things from the CCO.
Well i'd been in York center and me and my friend eventually got bored after a couple of hours and decided to get the bus to McArthur Glen or more recently known as Designer Outlet. I hadn't been for a long time and i knew that they were going to have some helly kitty things as my mum had been before me. I was impressed at the recent collections they had including Hello Kitty and Style Warriors. I really wanted the SW bronzer but they didn't have it and hardly any variety in brushes. So i headed over to look at the eyeshadows last time i went they had alot of pan eyeshadows so i picked up a 4 pan pallette and an eyeshadow and i think it was cork. But to my suprise there were no pan eyeshadows so i was dissapointed but after about a second i grasped that i could just get an eyeshadow and depott it and settled on this beauty :)

It's called Texture and its a velvet i have no idea if it's been discontinued or anything but it's a gorgeous coppery brown with a little bit of shimmer.
Also recently iv been obsessed with contour and highlighting and when i spotted the sculpt and shape powders i fell in love, firstly i was gonna get the lightest but then realised the brown looked a little bit harsh for my skin tone so settle on the one called Accentuate Sculpt. The peachy pink isnt light enough to be a highlighter for me but its lovely used as a blush i love it ♥

So here as some more bits that i've picked up. So i read about this on the Yummy Mummy's Beauty Blog, which is amazing so go check it out. She said that she had taken a liking to Collection 2000 Hot looks nail polish in 35-Dynasty having heard people rave about it, i picked it up as i was looking for a pale purple polish and barryM didn't have one, and this was only £1.95/

I absolutely love this nail polish, its creamy, you only need one coat or even two to show its maximum intesity, and it does dry fast i think im going to have to pick up more of the fast dry polishes.

While out in leeds i went to my nearest big superdrug to check out some of the Sleek makeup, i was going to get the storm palette and i didn't which i now regret i'll get it in london next week :) instead i looked at the inkpots. They are about £4 and i really wanted to try one before i bought a fluidline because i never really wear liquid eyeliner so have never tried a gel eyeliner so i picked up the black ink pot. You can see iv tested it.

I also got this cheap eyeliner/brow shade brush whilst out and about and i'm actually really impressed, i can use it for both and it works amazing.

So thats that. And then i never saw any really spectactular clothes on my shopping try, so that was dissapointing, but saw this gorgeous ring in primark only £2!

Last but definately not least, something i've been wanting for a while since being recommended by Lollipop26 and MeganHeartsMakeup(Youtube) and thats the Mac Hue lipstick. I was going to get this and a blush but i always spend my money on nothing so i couldnt get the blush in the end but i love this lipstick i always wear Gosh Darling and barryM 101 and feel there too nude for school and wanted a pinky nude so i got this and love it for everyday.

I love it. That's it for now guys. Update soon. London next week. ♥

Elle Magazine & Small Collective Haul.

Hey guys, firstly just to let you know about this months copy of ELLE. i love this magazine, fashion beauty and everything in it. So i was in the aisles of my local ASDA yesterday and saw this months copy and saw lindsay lohan on the cover, (of who recently im not really a fan for some reason) and was almost not going to buy it until i saw the free gift. An elle notepad designed buy vivienne westwood of whos designs, bags THE LOT i adore ♥ So i had to pick it up. Go check it out :)

Anyway moving on to a little collective haul from the past couple of days. Only 6 things :) Sorry about the lighting in the photographs, it was late at night when i took these so didn't have any natural sunlight.

Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation
So, recently i'd been on the hunt for a new foundation. In the past i've had Mac studio tech (which i love), Mac Studio fix fluid (which i'm shore im allergic to as it caused me to break out), Revlon colourstay (which i kinda wen't off as it started to make my skin look almost greasy) and for the past couple of weeks i'd used my backup foundation which was Maybelline dream matte mousse which always seems to be abit dry.
But i wanted something new, and try something different. Something full coverage. So after watching an Illamasqua review by richie (whatstyleistonickel) i decided to pop in to selfridges at the Trafford Center and buy it. It was £19.97 and i got it in the lightest skin tone colour RF120 the lighter shades are actually white. No jokes haha. VERDICT? I LOVE IT :D

Natural Collection Bronzer in Sun Shine

I love this bronzer. I mean i haven't really tried any high end bronzers although im hoping to try Nars Laguna sometime soon after everyone on here raves about it. This is the bronzer i've always got since i first started wearing makeup in Year 9. It gives a nice subtle glow and subtle contour if you don't really want a really bold contour :) I had to repurchase as when i was using my old one (nearly praticly finished anyway) i dropped it accidently on the floor and it smashed and fell into millions of pieces i was torn up but soon came around at the fact i'd only have to pay £2 for a new one :)

Playboy Hef's Favourite in Ms Playboy

I have wanted this lipgloss for absolutely ages. When i was younger i used to stare at it superdrug and think it was the perfect nudey pinkey colour :) So recently i popped into a store in Burnley called TJ Hughes well last time i went in i found out that both Stila and Playboy had gone bust in the UK and the products were being sold in the TJ Hughes stores. So the previous time i had gone i had searched and searched for this lipgloss and not being able to find it gave up and settled for 2 Stila lipglosses and a Playboy blush. But this time it didn't take much looking and i found it ♥ and i was right its the perfect gloss :) and guess what. Pricetag = £2 :D

TRESemme 24 Hour Body Root Boosting Spray

The other day i was in the town center with a friend and i'd seen the advert for the new 24 hour body products on tv and new i just had to have one of them. So browsing boots i came across them and guess what?! half price so i got this little beauty for about £2.65. Your spray it to the roots of towel dried hair and it helps to give your hair volume. I've not used it frequent enough to review but will mention it later. Photo is a tad orangey :/.

BarryM Lip Gloss

These lipglosses do not have a certain name just lip gloss haha. I went into superdrug the otherday and went to my BarryM selection to find some new products, these new lipglosses. With a strange yet nice variety of colours i think theres 6 to choose from. None of them were really my cup of tea. There was a clear, a brown, an orange, a reddy colour and i saw this pink one with sparkle they all smell absolutely amazing. The orange smells of oranges and the one i have smells like ice cream ♥ and they are super pigmented they are great as mine is bright pink i usually wear it alone to and dab and rub it on my lips to make it more sheer and subtle. The picture doesn't really give it justice.

OPI Nail Laquer in Moon Over Mumbai
Recently i'd been looking for the perfect light grey nail varnish BarryM doesn't do one (or a pale violet) so i was a little disapointed. I never usually wear nail varnish as my school doesn't allow us to wear it at school which sucks so i thought if i wore a light grey nobody would notice and pale colour seem to slim my podgy fingers haha.
After a shopping day i went into a shop i'd never been in before and saw a selection of OPI nail polishes. To find an OPI polish i would usually have to travel an hour to York and have to pay £10 for one but this shop was 15 minutes away from where i live and had a couple on sale. I was lucky enough to find this beauty for 5 pounds :) My first OPI nail polish.

New To Blogspot :)

Hey to anyone out there reading in the makeup world. Just to let you know this is my brand new blog. It will be here to show you new videos and pictures, FOTD, hauls etc etc. And disclaimer, i will NOT be on here as much as i would like, like most of the bloggers out there as i am at school, im 15 years old and i don't have as much money as i would like to haul and things so that's just a warning. But anyway stick around and check back in the future.
Loves It :)
