My Top 5....

Hey Huns!
So I have decided that every month I will do a new post called 'My Top 5'. This will be a new sort of series about my top five favourites (in no particular order) for music, TV, etc. For September, I will be discussing

My Top 5...
Music Groups, Bands & Singers

1. The Glitch Mob
This is a glitch hop group. Glitch hop is a genre of music, a bit like EDM. I first discovered the Glitch Mob about a year and a half ago and since then I've been hooked. My favourite songs by them are 'We Can Make the World Stop' and 'A Dream Within a Dream'.
Absolutely obsessed.
2. Bruno Mars
You more than likely know who he is! I have LOVED him ever since Doo Wops and Hooligans. I tried to get tickets for his concert, but they sold out so so quick! Me and my friend were gutted. My favourite songs by him are, well, pretty much all of them!

3. Everything Everything
I have been obsessed with their album Arc ever since it came out. They're an indie band from England. For the first time in a long time, I can listen to a full album without disliking a song.

4. Muse
They are such an amazing band. I've been to see them in concert and it was amazing (Obvs). I've loved them since I was younger too.

5. Lana Del Rey
I love her album Born to Die so much. She's such an amazing singer. I used to not like her because I thought she was depressing, but I actually really like her music now!

I know its a bit different to my usual stuff, but I might incorporate beauty top fives too. I hope you enjoyed this post!

Reviewed: MAC Lipsticks

Hey Huns!

So just a quick thing to say sorry that there will be no video this weekend. My school does assessments which make up your Christmas mark. These usually consist of very large chapters that you have to revise and they have taken a HUGE chunk out of my down time. Hopefully I'll have a video next week. 
(I MIXED UP THE WORDING FOR PINK NOUVEAU AND GIRL ABOUT TOWN. OTHER WAY AROUND SORRY!!! Feeling dumb because I replaced the original picture with this one...)

Babbling over and on with the review!
I purchased my first MAC lipstick back in February and I have been in love ever since! The colours I have are so different and wearable. Milan Mode is more opaque where as Girl About Town and Pink Nouveau are more of a fulller colour. These lipsticks have such great stay. Whenever I wear them, I feel as if I never have to re-apply them that often. The colours are always super pigmented and it is one of the things I really love about them. Saying this, sometimes I have to wear a lip balm underneath because numero uno: I suffer from dry lips and numero dos: they then look awful. 
I have to say, everything about these lipsticks are perfect, from the pigmentation to the packaging. I would definitely recommend them although they are quite expensive, but a good investment!
I hope you liked this *late* post! And I will hopefully have a video next weekend.

How to: Heart Kneed Jeans!

Hey huns!
This is a quick and easy DIY on how to put hearts on the knees of your jeans! Its so simple and quick, the longest part being the drying time for the hearts! Sorry that this isn't a proper post, school has been so hectic lately. Also, I won't be doing a favourites for August because I feel its too late now.

I hope you enjoy the video!

Hey Huns!

SO this is a bit of a different post, but I thought it was relevant because I (and other bbloggers) am turning 15 on Friday (the thirteenth).
A quinceañera is celebrated in most Latin countries and is more important than any other birthday because it is where a girl transitions from childhood to womanhood.

Thats a quick definition from what I understand. The whole thing of celebrating them has fascinated me since my trip to Cuba when a tour guide told us about his daughters quinceanera.

The ceremonies vary from country to country, but most are pretty much the same. There is a ceremony in a church and then the family and friends go to a venue where there is lots of dancing, cake etc. Two of the rituals I like is where the birthday girl has a father daughter dance and the other is where the girls flat shoes are changed to high heels, symbolising that she is a woman. Another thing that is part and parcel with the party is the big beautiful dresses (which in my opinion looks like princess dresses) and the tiara. 

Quinceanera's seems like such a beautiful way to celebrate, much nicer than the sweet sixteen that is glorified on MTV.

When researching this post, I found this mini documentary which you should check out if you want to get a better idea of what it looks like.(Click here)

I know this was a different kind of post, but it really does interest me and I thought it might interest others whose quinceanera is on the horizon. I hope you enjoyed this post and I'll see you in my next video or blogpost!
