Summer ♥

Hey huns!
So for me, today is officially summer! All exams are DONE and I am ready to chill and have fun. (rhyming by accident! :P ) So I just want to do a wee post on summer etc. I am so excited because summer means more time to blog make videos and have fun!

So this summer I am dying my ends this colour of blue! I am so excited but I'm dying it after I come back from holidays because the sun would bleach it.

A Post for Summer!

Hey Huns!
The summer holidays are fast approaching 
- as in five more days! - 
and I am super excited! I am going to try and do LOADS this summer with my friends and family. I can't wait. Summer to me means more blogs, longer days, sleeping in, no school, shorts and tshirts and all that jazzy stuff. Summer along with Christmas is by far my favourite time of the year, and it definitely helps that we're off to enjoy it.

So have you got any great plans for summer? Comment below I love to hear them. :)
Good luck with exams!

Blogging & Exams

Just a quick post considering it is a monday night and I should be doing my Buddha project. But anyway!
So this weekend is the final weekend before exams! YAY!

But this weekend is also going to be a long tedious stressing weekend full of study and revision. I have a scheduled post, but if I don't reply to your comments right away, I will! But it may be like 12am or something.... 
I'll say this again, but really good luck with exams, whether its just for 1st or 2nd year, or your JC or GCSE's!

The Small Bloggers Network

Hey huns!
I've set up a new blog calle The Small Bloggers Network which is, as the name implies, for small bloggers. It's super easy to join and there will be a feautured blogger every week starting in June. I just think that it can be difficult to get more followers and this would be a good way to bring all small bloggers together into a network.

Thoughts on Colour Tattoos

Hey Huns!
Ok, a review for yous today on the Maybelline Colour Tattoos. I have two, one in "Turquoise Forever" and the other in "Eternal Gold". The blue is so shimmery and pretty, but I find it a bit hard to wear if I'm totally honest. I think I might use it more in the summer and could achieve making it look ok with a blue smoky eye with it as the base. The gold however, is so easy to wear! It's such a pretty shimmery colour too, and isn't too in-your-face so I've been able to wear it to school. It's like my Catrice cream eyeshadow, but lighter. I've been wanting to try out both for one look, but haven't had time. I might post something like that over summer?
Overall as cream eyeshadows go, they have great stay, but the brighter colours can be hard to wear. Hope you enjoyed, will be posting next week so until then, BYEEEEEE!

♥Summer Wishlist♥

Hey huns! 
I think I've mentioned how excited I am for summer, and i've made a quick wishlist :)

  1. Benefit Bella Bamba Blush: Its coral, and coral is such a summery collour. LOVE
  2. Floral Skater Skirt: I am OBSESSED with florals! They are just so pretty and girly, and this one is perfect from summer. Also, the mint would really bring out a tan!
  3. Boi-ing: its benefit, I love benefit, so yeah :P
  4. Dweeb: Meredith Foster aka Stilababe09 has this and ever since I've loved it because it isn't as popular than the geek ones, but is still that style.
  5. Colour Tattoos: I LOVE the two I have! 
  6. Hunter Green Skirt: Ever since Bridget Mendler wore one like this in her video for Ready Or Not, I love them!
  7. Bowler Hat: obsessed with these for some reason.
  8. Aztec Shorts: ALL over Wanelo. Do they even sell these?
  9. Benefit Hello Flawless Powder: I've heard so many good things about this powder.
  10. Maybelline Blush: Cream Blushes always give a dewy look & my body shop one is too awkward to use.
  11. This is Maybellines version of Revlon Lip Butters. They haven't released them yet here.
  12. Lindsay (Beautybaby44) talked about this and posted photos on instagram before.
  13. Revlon Lip Butters: I have one and its so moisturising! I would like to try a coral colour for summer.
  14. I have 2, but by the end of the summer I'll probably have the whole collection.
  15. Keds: they're like Vans, but the sole is thinner and they have so many cute patterns! Taylor Swift endorses them.
  16. I would like to try this! See if they work or not :)

So that was a quick post, but it was so fun putting together that wishlist!
Ok, now its YOUR TURN! make a wishlist (with or without pics) and comment below when you do! Happy wishing!
MWAH! :*

Hey huns!

I got some lovely things for summer and now that I thought would be nice to share with you as I love hauls as well!

Hope you enjoyed, and there will be another video soon!

Make-Up Collection

Hey huns! 
So before I did post a "Whats in my makeup bag" post, but this is different because its for my collection and not just my most frequently used products. This is my main collection, but if you want me to do the rest in a part 2 then comment down below!

So starting with my brushes. I mostly use Eco Tools because my parents gave me a set of them for Christmas. I also have a Penneys powder brush, a random brush and a No7 sponge which I use so much!

Garden of Good & Eva by Benefit. My go to perfume in the morning because it is quite a subtle scent.

I then have a little drawer from Dealz (Irish Poundland) that has my Maybelline FitMe concealer that I use everyday, my Rimmel Hide the Blemish coverstick concealer, my No7 concealer and my Benefit Foundation that I don't really use because its really heavy on my skin.

In the second drawer I have my Catrice cream eyeshadow, my two Maybelline Colour Tattoos, Urban Decay, Essence & MUA eyeshadows. I keep the cream eyeshadows to the front and powder eyeshadows to the back.

Then there is a makeup bag that has my Clinique tinted moisturiser, my Simple wipes, The Body Shop Lily Cole primer & Simple moisturiser.

I then have two pallettes (I suppose). The first is my Urban Decay Naked 2 pallette which I reach for everyday, and the second was the Shes So Jetset set from Benefit that I got for christmas that has a mini quatro pallette and a blush.

On top of the little drawer thing I have my everyday make-up which is my Body Shop foundation, Benefit Porefessional primer, Bourjois pressed powder and behind it (you can't see it) is my Benfit Dandelion Blush. I don't really use the Lily Cole cream blush or the Body Shop eyeshadow but I had no where else to put them. Also there is my Lee Stafford hair putty which I use to enhance my natural wave.

Also on top of the drawer is my eye makeup. For mascaras I have a mini They're Real, Natural Collection clear mascara, MUA mascara, Maybelline Great Lash & Maybelline's the Rockett mascara.
Then for eyeliners I have 2 Collection liquid eyeliners, one in black & one in purple, 2 penneys eyeliners, one in black one in pink, a blue-green Bourjois eyeliner, MUA eyeliner in Forest Green, Maybelline purple eyeliner and Rimmel white eyeliiner that is tiny because I've used it to death.

Then I have my lipbalms. I keep them in an old Lego Cliket box (I loved Clikets. Does anyone else remember them??) 
First I have a Burts Bees pomegranate lip balm, two Chapstick Flava Craze lip balms in apple & watermelon, a boots tinted lip balm, randomly my Urban Decay mini lipgloss and (surprise surprise!) my two Nivea Lip Butters in Vanilla & Macedamia and Caramel Cream.

Then we have my lipsticks & lipglosses. I forgot to include my MAC one, but it should be there. First we have my Revlon lipgloss in Hot Pink, then my two Rimmel Apocalips in Celestial & Apocaliptic, then my MAC lip glass, Lush lip stain/gloss, Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart, No7 Poppy King Lipstick and then my Body Shop lipstick which is a bright red colour.

So that is it. As I said before, if you want a part two with my makeup I don't use as much, comment below and I'll do that in a few weeks. Hope you enjoyed the post!
