Haul | Forever 21, Superdrug, The Body Shop & Lush ♡

Hello everyone! Hope you're all having a nice day, yesterday I did some shopping in the sales and I was going to save this post but since how I'm not doing anything today, I thought I would share with you guys what I got. Just a quick note, this post contains no clothing items (surprisingly) as I didn't actually buy any clothes for once. Enjoy. :)

                                                                      Forever 21
Cha-ching purse. I got this because I was in need of a new purse, it wasn't in the sales. Actually nothing I got from Forever 21 was in the sales. Anyway, I got this purse purely because it feels nice, I wish you could feel it over the internet. It's so soft and the colour is beautiful.
Nail tool set. This was such an impulse buy, I didn't plan on buying a nail kit ever really, but when I saw it I wanted it so much because it also feels really nice and it was quite cheap. I thought if I bought it, I would have more encouragement to shape my nails better and more often because the shape of my nails is truly embarrassing.
Tote Bag. This was also an impulse buy in a way. I did want to buy a bag when I went out just not a tote bag, but when I was in the queue to pay I saw it and I just picked it up as they said 'next please' so I am happy I got it because it's so cute.

Daddy-O shampoo. I have never used this shampoo before but it smells amazing! To be totally honest I only picked it up because it was purple, then I smelt it, read what it was and bought it. It's a shampoo for blonde's to keep their blonde in check. As my hair is dyed blonde, I thought it might help keep my hair as blonde as possible, for as long as possible. It also smells like palma violets, which is always a bonus.
Ponche shower gel. This shower gel was in the sale, there was only 2 shower gels in sales and this was the best one if you ask me. Its called 'Ponche' which is a cool name, it smells amazing (like everything in lush) and it was reduced to £3 I think. They had bigger ones but I thought about it and I already got about 5 bottles of shower gel for Christmas so I didn't need it.
(Sorry for the bad photo, these products where hard to get a good photo of)

                                                                   The Body Shop
Cranberry Joy Body Polish. I really didn't need anything I got from The Body Shop but last year I got a lot of cranberry joy products and this year I got none, I thought they just didn't make any this year so when I went to The Body Shop I was unbelievably happy when I saw them. This body polish was 50% off and the lid is abit broken but I'm sure I'll survive.
Cranberry Joy Body, Linen & Room Spray. I absolutely love The Body Shop's body, linen and room spray's, I think I've been through about 5 this year. I also love cranberry joy so this was something I just had to buy, even though I didn't really need it.
Sweet Lemon Hand Cleanse Gel. This is the first hand cleanse gel I've ever bought from The Body Shop and I've used it once since yesterday. I love lemon so I can't see myself hating it and its the perfect size to put in your bag.
 Tea Tree Mud Mask. I got 2 of these and its probably my a millionth time buying them, tea tree face masks are all I really use as they leave my skin looking and feeling amazing. The Superdrug ones are favourite, I also love The Body Shop tea tree face mask as well, its just a bit overpriced for what it is.
L'oreal Triple Resist Hair Masque. This is my first time using a L'oreal hair masque and one of the first hair masques I've really used. I've used it once since I got it and it smells amazing, left my hair untangled and my hair looking amazing so I can't complain so far. I may do a full length review on it in the future.
Batiste Coconut & Exotic Tropical Dry Shampoo. This is the first time I've used this specific dry shampoo, I've always used Batiste as a dry shampoo and never been disappointed. I usually use the one made specifically for blondes, it doesn't smell as good as this one but my hair looks slightly lighter after using it.

I also bought a Teen Vogue as you can see in my first image because its one of my favourite magazines!

That is it for my haul, I hope you liked it. I hope to do a haul at least once a month because they are fun posts to make and it gives me an excuse to go shopping.

Someday Summary | Friday ♡

Hello everyone! Today I thought I would do a someday summary, its currently the afternoon and I have just finished putting all my Christmas presents away. After Christmas, my presents are always just scattered in my room as I am yet to find them a place. Today I went to Boots which, in case you guys don't know, is a drugstore/pharmacy. I live about 5 minutes away from a small one and its never really that busy, last year it had an amazing sale because not many people really go there, I got alot of things. I was slightly disappointed this year because it didn't have many things in the sale, I was hoping for Soap and Glory things to be in the sale because I love Soap and Glory but they didn't :( However I did get a Sanctuary Spa gift set, as you can see in the picture above. Sanctuary Spa is divine if you ask me. The set I go is a 'luxury travel set' but I'm not actually travelling anywhere I just got it because I love these products. Inside it contains body wash, body scrub, body moisture spray, hand cream & bath float. It was only £6, which is a complete bargain as it was supposed to £12 so I was very happy.

I realized in my Christmas post I didn't include any of the clothes I got, I didn't get many clothes as people say they 'find it hard buying clothes for me because I have weird taste'. I did however get 2 jumpers and a pair of pajamas. I am wearing one of my jumpers today, its an oversize one with a lion on it from Forever 21.

I feel this post was a bit long for a someday summary so I apologize. Anyway, tomorrow I am spending my whole day hitting the sales so if the sales don't disappoint I will do a haul for you all! Have a good day xo

What I got for Christmas 2013. ♡

Merry Christmas dolls! Hope you all had an amazing Christmas. Today I am going to make a post about what I got for Christmas, in no way am I bragging I'm just sharing with you all, enjoy.

                                                      Skincare/Gift Sets.

I am huge lover of gift sets! I got 3, the gingerbread man tin which is from The Body Shop and contained ginger body polish, shower gel, body lotion & a tiny heart shaped ginger soap. The second was a Kardashian Kolor nail gift set, I got 2 of them and they were miniatures of the Kardashian Kolor nail range. Lastly, I got a L'occitane one in a little basket, I absolutely love L'occitane so I was so happy with this gift. In the gift set it had a hand cream, hand gel, shampoo, conditioner, soap, shower gel, body lotion & shower oil. I have used almost all of them at least once since yesterday and they smell amazing! The skincare I got was a hot cloth cleanser by Liz Earle, it feels amazing on your skin and its quick and easy.

This year I got 4 calenders which is completely insane considering last year I didn't get any aha. I got one from my mum, one from my friends, one from my nan and one from my grandad. I got an owl one, a cat one, a vogue one and a vampire diaries one. The vampire diaries is my favourite show so I loved this one.

I didn't get a great deal of books this year, simply because I don't read as much as I used to. I used to love getting annuals when I was younger but now I think I'm probably too old, aha. Anyway, I got 2 books by Candace Bushnell, I've never read anything by her before but I started watching the TV series The Carrie Diaries and I love it so much so I thought maybe I should read the books before I carry on watching. I also got a book called 'The Wonderful World of Fifi Lapin' and its basically book full of fashion tips by a stylish bunny, I started reading it yesterday evening and its so good! Highly recommended.
                                                         Random gifts
These are just some of my favourite gifts I got in my stocking that I thought would be nice to share. I got a (big) box of maltesers, chocolate coins, Kim Kardashian perfume and a journal. I love the perfume, I have never smelt it before and I honestly do love the smell of it. The journal I got I was thinking of using as a blog book kind of thing, to be more organised so I can plan out posts like when I will post them.

                                                            Main gifts
My main gifts from my parents were a Marc Jacobs watch and Samsung Galaxy s3. I love love love these gifts! My old phone was driving me insane and my old watch was falling apart aha. These gifts are just amazing and I hope they both last a long time.

So that is the end of my what I got for Christmas 2013 past. I hope you all liked it, I had such a good Christmas. I hope you all did aswell :) What did you all get for Christmas?

Also do you like the banner? I made it myself in photoshop so I don't expect it to be to the standard of a graphic designer but I tried hehe.

Garnier Fructis: Repair & Shine: A Review.

Hey everyone, hope you all had a great week. Today I am going to do a shampoo review and this is the first time ever I've done a shampoo review because I've always been the type of person who just uses shampoo and not really cared what it was. However, in the past few months I have actually tried to make my hair look the best it can which obviously means reading what shampoo specifically does.

To begin with my hair is long and has been dyed 3 times. I am quite blessed with my hair as its naturally quite easy to handle and I never really get split ends. Anyway that is a brief description of my hair as you may want to know for this review. I first used this shampoo a couple of weeks ago and I have been through 2 bottles of shampoo & conditioner. Its amazing. I seriously mean that, I honestly think its one of the best shampoos I've used in a while.

Heres why I love it...

It does repair and shine. My hair was shiny for about 3 days and it felt alot better, I'm not 100% sure what repair specifically means, in terms of hair, but my hair feels better so I think it did repair :) A bonus to this was that it smells incredible, the smell didn't last as long as I would've wanted it to but I did use dry shampoo in between washes so I had the smell of that some days.

Thats all I really have to say about this shampoo. Its literally so affordable as well, you can buy it on amazon and in most stores, hope you guys enjoyed my shampoo review!

My next post will likely be 'What I Got For Christmas' as I love reading them posts and in no way will I be bragging about it, I just want to share it with you guys. I have noticed I have gotten alot more pageviews since my last post, did you guys like someday summary? I will be doing alot more :3

Have a great Christmas! Whats on your Christmas list?

Someday Summary | Wednesday ♡

Someday Summary

I though I would start doing someday summaries. If you don't know what they are its where you basically sum up your day in a cute little text post once in a while, I thought it would encourage me to blog more as it doesn't take that long and its fun.

I am loving...

♡Food: Carrot Sticks. Bit random I know but I am trying to eat healthier and these are just the perfect healthy snack.
♡Book: Fashion Photography 101. This book is amazing if you love fashion photography, its by Lara Jade. You can buy it here. I would definitely recommend it if you want to make it as fashion photographer its an amazing guide.
♡TV Show:Freaks and Geeks. I recently just started watching and I know it started and ended years ago so I am abit late on the bandwagon for it. But its never to late, right?
♡Music: Ariana Grande. I've been in love with Ariana Grande's voice for about 2 years now and I do always listen to her alot but lately I have been listening to alot more of her as she has released a few Christmas songs, they are all so beautiful. (Although everything she sings sound beautiful regardless what its about).
♡Nails: Pink! As you can see in the image above my nails are currently a light pink and last week they were a hot pink, I'm just loving pink nails right now. By the way, my nails in the picture are 862 'Something Sweet' by China Glaze.
♡Product: Lip Balms. I have mainly been using my eos lip balm because my lips aren't doing well with the recent weather and eos lip balms sooth my lips amazingly well. 

Life Update! 

I finish school tomorrow for just over 2 weeks for Christmas! Yay. So I will have alot more time to have fun and relax which ultimately means I will have more time to blog and more things to blog about. Also I am looking for a better and less basic template for my blog as I barely have any money with not having a job and spending all the money I get on Christmas Presents so I can't really afford to buy on right now. My next post will probably be in 2-3 days as I have plans (for once!) tomorrow and the next day. Hope you enjoyed this post! Xo

The Christmas Tag!

My Christmas Tree.
So I decided to do the Christmas tag I've seen on some blogs :)

  1. Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?

I've always had a synthetic tree so I would have to say synthetic tree. My current one is pink and we have a big one downstairs that is blue so not traditional colours either.

2. You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?

Gingerbread muffin! Costa Coffee do the most amazing gingerbread muffins, they are so addictive. It even has a cute editable gingerbread man on the top.

3.  What's your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?

As you can tell by my tree, theres no real colour scheme going on but my favourite Christmas colour is purple, by far.

4.  Giving or receiving?

I'd have to pick both to be honest. I love buying people presents, especially if I know how much they want it, because the look on their face when they open it is fabulous. On the other hand, I love receiving presents because its such a good surprise, just not knowing whats inside.

5.  To mince pie or not to? 

Absolutely not! I hate mince pies, sorry guys.

6. Christmas day fashion

I always have a Christmas outfit, its just an essential for Christmas day. Its usually got alot of red in because its the most christmassy colour of them all. I usually go for something quite casual as I never leave the house on Christmas day so who do I have to impress?

7.  What's your favourite Christmas song?

It has the be 'All I want for Christmas is you' by Mariah Carey but this year I am also loving 'Snow In California' by Ariana Grande. She has such a lovely voice, I could listen to her forever.

8.  What's your favourite Christmas film?

The Grinch, I love that movie.

9. Open presents before or after lunch?

Before! No way could I wait until after lunch, haha.

10.  What's your traditional Christmas lunch?

Most of us are vegetarians in my house (including me) we usually have a quorn roast instead. I tend to eat alot of yorkshire puddings and vegetables. 

Hope you enjoyed me doing the Christmas tag! Xo

Kendall Jenner beauty

Kendall Jenner is my main fashion/beauty inspiration, she is just so effortlessly flawless. Her make-up is very simple, she applies the right amount. I made a set on polyvore as I don't own all these products so I couldn't do a make-up tutorial with me in. According to Seventeen she does use the Lancome mascara and I've read somewhere that she use smashbox primer. The rest are kind of a guess based on her general make-up look on red carpets and in KUWTK etc. She does wear false lashes when shes in events but I was creating a set to show the more natural make-up side of her like in her instagram photos. Also check out my Kendall Jenner collection here.

November Favourites!

Happy December! This year has gone so fast, wow. Anyway, so as I have done some shopping this month I thought I would do a November favourites post. I don't have alot or at least I don't have as much as I wanted because the majority of the products I have bought this month have been Christmas presents. I love giving people Christmas presents but I hate buying them, I just wanna keep them all for myself :c

The first things I love are these two nail polishes by Rimmel. One is number 702 called marshmallow heaven (left) and the other one is number 404 called ballet pump perfection (right). I have worn them both once since I got them and they are long lasting finish like they say! My favourite is the ballet pump perfection one, I just love the colour and on that photo it looks redish but its actually a hot pink, in some light I thought it was red I couldn't get the correct colour with my camera sadly :(

Next is clothing. I only have one clothing product to discuss really as all the other clothes I bought last month (not alot anyway) I haven't worn yet aha. They are jeans, and I really love them because they have a size (8,10 etc.) but you also have the length aswell. The problem I always have is the waist is fine but the length is too long but these jeans are perfect on both. They were from Matalan and I can't remember how much tbh I think they were £14? They were fairly cheap,
I remember. They are a light faded blue colour (if you can see on the picture).

Moving on to skin care products, one I love this month is Anew Clinical eye cream. It is specifically for line correcting. Up to now I haven't noticed a massive difference but I love how it feels on my skin, after I use it around my eye is so smooth!

Lastly, my favourite song and TV show of November. My favourite song is 'Rooting for my baby - Miley Cyrus' (listen here) I have listened to this song about 100 times in the past 2 weeks, its addicting. My favourite TV show has been Ja'mie:Private School Girl. Its hilarious, it airs in Austrailia so I've been watching online. I would totally recommend it, season 1 has finished now and I'm not sure that there is going to be a season 2 but I hope so!

Bye! Xo

Favourite places to shop online!♡

Happy December! I shop online alot more than I do in stores because its just easier and I've never had any problems :) So here are 5 of my favourite places to shop online:

I absolutely love Amazon for everything, literally everything. Clothes, Food, Drinks, Books etc. Its my go-to website for anything and everything. Its cheaper than going to an actual shop and easier if you ask me. Also alot of products are free p & p which is a bonus.

I think Asos is essentially where my shopping online addiction started because when I first got my debit card I spent about 3 hours shopping on this site. Its free p & p worldwide! So you don't lose any money on paying p & p which kind of sold me on the website. Also the clothes are really good quality in my experience as none of them have ever ripped or arrived broken so far good service :)

I used to use feelunique alot for my make-up but now I use amazon alot more if I need some. However, I do still use this alot for skin/body care or perfume because its free delivery over £10 and I tend to spend over £10 every time I use this site. This christmas I've also ordered alot of gift sets because I think gift sets are the perfect presents and they sell them at reasonable prices so I would completely recommend this site if you're stuck for gift ideas.

I love love love Ebay! I find it alot cheaper than most places. Although, I do find that the product quality isnt as good as alot of places. I've never faced any problems with Ebay though and my parents sell alot of things on Ebay so its good for you if you're in need of extra cash :) I don't like this as much as Amazon but if Amazon doesn't have what I'm looking for this is my second choice.

Fashionunion is alot like Asos in the sense that its a clothing website for women. The design is also very similar which is why I love them both so much, the sites are easy to use and a clean design. no clutter. However, fashionunion doesn't have free delivery like Asos but the clothes are really amazing so I'll forgive them.

So these are 5 of my favourite websites to use when I do online shopping! I hope you guys check these out, you won't regret it :)

Hey guys, I just made a bloglovin' account. Follow me here :)

I will be posting alot more now, I had an exam week so most of my time was focused on that but alot more posts will be on here in the next 2 weeks, I have alot of ideas, yay!


Back to school essentials!♡

I realise this may be abit late because everyone went back to school in September but I really wanted to make a post about this! Anyway here are my back to school essentials:

Bag. :)
Starting off with my bag, I love it! Not only do I love the owl patterns on the outside but the size of it is perfect for everything I need and it has two smaller pockets at the front. In the actually bag it also has a pocket and theres one at the back of the bag. So its safe to say it has enough room for all my things :)

One of my absolute essentials is to carry a small bag, it can be like a make-up bag or a purse whatever you prefer. Basically something that you can put some beauty things in, I never used to carry one of these but now I do and its so useful! Personally I don't take any make-up as I don't wear make-up to school, my school does allow it but honestly when I wake up at 6:30am the last thing I wanna do is try and apply make-up. In mine I carry hand sanitiser, lip balm, baby lips & my Taylor Swift perfume. I find I do usually use these daily, maybe you guys don't need these but to me they are the perfect things to just have handy for you.

2 of my other essentials are mints & money! I always have either chewies/mints because I am super paranoid about my breath smelling bad. I always have money (only about £2 - £5) in case I am really hungry and the lunch I brought doesn't fill me up, I go to my school cafeteria. I am also guilty of buying magazines on the way to school (aha oops). I keep my money in the little Barcelona tin.

Lastly, something I think everyone kind of needs is a notebook and pens. I keep my pens/pencils in a tin (the flowery one) because I always break zips on pencil cases and I find a tin actually fits more in anyway. I got my notebook for my birthday but it is from paperchase I believe so if you would like one like that be sure to go there. Our school gives us journals to write down our homework but I hate them so much! They are tiny and urgh no I can't. So this notebook is perfect for me and its a good size for all my homework, it also works for last minute homework.

Thank you for reading! Also if you could help me out and click on the ads on my tumblr blog here because I would like some extra money so I can start doing giveaways and more hauls for this blog. I really want to try hard with this blog. So thank you for reading xo

Here is where you can buy my bag.
Here is my tumblr blog.
Here is my twitter.
Here is my pinterest.

My next post is likely to be on Friday/Thursday & it will be my October Favourites! I look foward to it as its my first time doing a favourites post :)


Mini Haul!

So I thought I would start off my blog with a haul. I don't really know how to describe a haul but basically I'm just going to talk about a bunch of stuff I have bought. I decided to start with a haul because many successful youtubers started their channel with a haul. Anyway, on with the haul...

The haul.
First I will start off with the clothing. Both of the clothing items are from H&M and they were both in the sale (yay!). I intentionally went in to H&M to get a pair of jeans and came out with 2 t-shirts, screw logic. Anyway so the first t-shirt is a weird animal sitting on a swing maybe? I'm not 100% sure what it is but you can see it in the picture. I only really got it because of the shade of blue in the background and the animal is really cute hehe. I will most likely wear this top tomorrow and it was only £3. Moving on to the other one where it has an L, two hearts then an E, I just got because I thought it was adorable. I didnt realise until I got home that it was a size 10 so its slightly big on me but I think I can wear it without it being noticed aha.

The boots! I love these boots. I have been searching for a new pair of boots for ages now and these just stuck out for me. They are from Forever 21 & they are extremely comfy ah. I don't have much to say about these boots apart from the fact that I love them!

I took a picture separately of the beauty products because they weren't as visible in the above picture. So starting with the Neutrogena moisturiser, I was in need of a new moisturiser and as my skin is acne prone I thought I would give it a try! It smells like pink grapefruit which is amazing and its pink. I might do a review of it when I finish the tube because it is the first time of me using it.

The simple revitalising eye roll-on is a product I have used in the past so I know I definitely will like it. Its the perfect product for tired eyes (for me anyway). It doesnt physically make your eyes look better as I do suffer from dark circles but when I use it my eyes do feel more awake. Is that the right word? It might just be a mental thing because I know its supposed to wake you up but I don't know I feel like it makes a difference. Its affordable also so go try it out.

Carmex is a lip balm I have surprisingly never used and I guess now its winter I need a new lip balm as I have been using eos lip balm basically all year. I bought it purely because it was cherry which may have no been a good reason but cherry is the perfect flavour so I thought why not? I used it as we were leaving superdrug and it made my lips feel like they could breathe (if you can imagine that feeling) it is definitely a product I can see myself buying again even if I have only used it once.

Lastly, my pink nail polish from topshop. If you don't know what topshop is, its basically a high street clothing store and they have a make up section. I have literally never thought of even looking in the make up section but on tumblr I always see pictures of topshop nail polish and I thought its about time I try one so I did. I put in on my nails about an hour ago and it hasn't chipped yet aha. I do like it though, its looks alot brighter on my nails than it did in the bottle but I really like it anyway.

So yeah this is my first blog post! Thank you for reading, if you managed to make it to the end. I will try and post at least twice a week on this blog so I can gain an audience.
