No7 eyeshadow palette

No7 eyeshadow palette

I have been loving eyeshadow palettes a lately so when I saw this gorgeous little palette from boots I just had to have it. It should of been £25 but I got it for £10 in the sale bargain or what?
I absolutely love the rose gold packaging it makes the product look very expensive and pretty. The shades range from day to night I love the colours. And I cant wait to play around with different looks its like a toy to me!

For those casual days..

For those casual days..

I wanted to do a fashion post today. I paired a mustard coloured jumper with a striped shirt underneath . It makes it look like  the jumper has a collar I love the look it goes really well. It's nice and casual but it looks like you have made the effort instead of looking like you have just thrown whatever on. I love layering and its great for winter to keep nice and warm. So I hope you like this look. I don't think I will be up to a great deal today as its really icy it snowed and there was no grit which has turned the roads and paths into ice skating rinks. I'm gutted because I really want to do some sales shopping so badly. I'm looking at my money sad because I can't spend it on clothes I hope the gritters come today please. Anyway its just a quick post the pictures are taken on my iPad sorry, I didn't feel like getting my camera out and uploading them to my laptop because it's all of a sudden become really slow so I stick to the iPad. I hope you don't mind.

2014 has been a good year!

2014 has been a good year!

Hello and welcome to Blogmas day 23 today I felt like writing a post all about the great memories i have had in 2014. It has been such an amazing year and let me tell you why!

1. I started my blog

As you all know I'm very happy with my blog it's such a great achievement. Last year, I was just thinking about making a blog and now I have done it. I can't wait to see what the future holds for my blog; for the many years to come!

2.  Regaining confidence in myself!
I think this was actually one of my first posts on my blog. I have had confidence issues for a long time; it was very low and I just never believed in myself. I managed to turn it all around and I couldn't be happier. I love writing about these experiences on my blog because I tell you the positive outcome. How I came out of it and made life happier. (Read my confidence post here for tips)

3. Going abroad for the first time!

This one is very exciting I love having all the pictures to look back on and be happy. I know I am very lucky to have been given the opportunity to go abroad; As not many people can't. I really appreciated it and enjoyed it a lot. I went to turkey and wrote a whole blog post about it

                  this is my favourite picture from my holiday! it's so pretty and the weather was gorgeous

3. Starting college 
This has been a great thing I love college and its turned my life around. I'm so much happier within myself and im doing really well. I have a lot more confidence in my ability and work. (Read my holiday post)


I hope to make 2015 another great year i wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year! 
                                                                     Love,

Blogmas day 17 | A must have product for coloured hair!

Blogmas day 17 | A must have product for coloured hair!

Hello everyone and welcome to blogmas day 17. Can you believe Thursday is Christmas day its getting really exciting now. Instead of me just going on i'm going to get right into the post. So i discovered this shampoo and conditioner a couple of weeks ago. And love them if you have coloured hair i would highly reccomend these. They enhance your  colour instead of making it dull like other shampoos and conditioners. Since using this i think my colour has become so much brighter and better. I love how intense and rich my colour looks again. Its great when your hair is dulling but you don't want to dye it. It also leaves your hair really shiny and soft with the argan oil and cranberry.



My hair today. It looks so shiny:)
Would you try these let me know in the comments
.                                                                                 love,

Blogmas day 16 | Im so happy with my blog!

 
Hello and welcome to blogmas day 16 today I feel like a chatty post more writing for you to read. And I really hope you enjoy it:). Anway as  you know this is my first ever Christmas blogging so I have been pretty brave to do blogmas. Seen as I haven't had my blog that long. But I just decided to do it and im really glad I have. I think I would of regretted not doing Blogmas. And it will be nice to look back at.
 
So thinking back to before I had this blog!
I always wanted to start a blog I had so many ideas in my head on what to post. I was always reading other peoples and wishing I could do it myself. Of course I could but there was always a voice in the back of my head telling me not to. Which is so silly because its something I want to do. I always thought that people might laugh or find it stupid. But honestly now I don't think at the negatives one little bit. I think more about the positives on my blog. I love that I'm free to write what ever I like when I ever I like. Its nice to have my own little place on the web. Where my personality is expressed. I love getting comments they make ever so happy but when I first started I never really thought about comments,followers and views. I was just so happy that I had the confidence to put up my posts. But now I'm slowly getting more followers it has made me very happy. To know people are reading your blog and enjoying it. Is the best feeling ever.

I love this blog and i'm really happy about how its turned out. When I picture what it looked like at the beginning its crazy to see how much its changed for the good. I have improved my skills and I now know about HTML codes took me ages but I got it in the end! I think having my blog has gave me a whole lot of confidence to. And its good practice for the future if I want to become a journalist. My advice to anybody who is thinking about starting a blog is to say just go for it. You never know unless you try. You don't want to live your life forever thinking what if! Thank you for following and reading my blog it means so much to me.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post let me know what you think in the comments
                                                                  Love,

Blogmas day 13 | Tips on how to fake tan.

Blogmas day 13 | Tips on how to fake tan.



Hello and welcome to blogmas day 13. Today i thought i would share my fake tanning tips with you. As all the Christmas and New years parties are coming up. Don't worry if you haven't just come of holiday from a really hot country we can just cheat that look. I love fake tan it makes you feel better about your self. It gives a lovely glow to ghostly white skin making you look lovely and sun kissed. And lets be honest we all want that gorgeous just come of holiday skin,even though it's winter we still want to look glowing and tanned. Especially for parties when you have to show of your legs.

PREP THE SKIN  BEFORE APPLYING THE TAN!  This is a big one you need to take this time to prep the skin so it looks the best. First you want to remove any unwanted hair so take this time to shave your legs, wax or use hair removal cream which ever you prefer. You want soft hair free skin to go with that gorgeous tan. Exfoliate your skin in the shower this is a must no matter what skin type you have its the best thing to do. To remove dead skin focus on the rough spots like elbows and knees! I always reccomend to  moisturize after exfoliating too for extra soft skin. Remember if you have dry skin the fake tan is just going to stick to those patches and make it look a mess.

GIVE YOUR SELF TIME FOR THE APPLICATION DON'T RUSH IT!  You do not want you'r tan to be a 10 minute rush job it will show in the results as a streaky mess. Take your time the results will be much better. Don't put fake tan on quickly before you go out do it the night before. Because you wake up the next day and it is really dark but what you do is go in the shower and let the water take of the build up fake tan. Then it goes a natural sunkissed colour don't panic thinking you are going to look like you've been tangoed.

WHAT FAKE TAN TO USE?  This all depends on what result you are wanting i have tried more a less every fake tan out there. So if your going on a night out and you want the results quick with out waiting to build it up i would reccomend mousse its the best fake tan kind i love it. I apply it at  the night. Then go in the shower the next day and it looks lovely.
If your wanting a hint of colour without going full on tanned straight away a gradual tan is your best option. I love gradual tan i use it in winter. Just apply it everyday until your happy with the colour the best thing is its a moisturizer too!
I wouldn't reccomend spray tan because it is so hard to do and a lot of mess. The only time i would reccomend them is if you are going to a salon to have it done.

THE THINGS YOU NEED 
1. Fake tan mitt you need this to apply the tan (buy one here at feel unique)
2. Exfoliating gloves to remove dead skin and make applying the tan smoothly it makes the results so much better (Buy here from feel unique)
3. After exfoliating you want to keep up the soft skin i would reccomend cocoa butter (Buy here from feel unique)

MY FAVOURITE FAKE TANNING MOUSSES  

1. Vita Liberata this gives such a beautiful result £22.50 (Buy here from feel unique)
2. St moriz fake tan i always get the colour medium gives results more a less straight away great price good results £4.99 (Buy here from feel unique)

MY FAVOURITE GRADUAL TANNERS
1. St Tropez Gradual tan £12.15 (Buy here from feel unique)
2. Garnier summerbody gradual tan £5.10 i get the colour deep (Buy here from feel unique)

Blogmas day 12 Makeup of the day


Hello welcome to blogmas day 12 today i thought i would show you what i wear on my face. On a regular basis. I have been wearing this look mostly everyday its pretty simple nothing complicated at all anybody can do this. Im not one of those girls  who can do super amazing  makeup looks. But im learning more and more. I used to find putting liquid eyeliner a real challenge one eye is perfect and the other wonky and a mess. So with a lot of practice i mastered it! and im very happy. I can do a neat  thin line with out looking like a full panda (YAY me!)



 I have been loving these two lipsticks together i first put the baby lips lipstick to my lips. To give a subtle hint of pink and make my lips nice and hydrated. Then i apply the revlon laquer balm. It calms the pink lipstick down because on its own its very bright.

Make up used   Foundation: maybelline dream matte mousse  Eyeliner: Rimmel liquid liner
lipstick Baby lips in pink punch and revlon laquer balm in Whimsical Boujois bronzer
and i used my w7 in the buff palette for eyeshadow i just applied the colour 'Dust' to the lids mascara is YSL

What do you think of my make up look let me know in the comments
                                                                 love,

Christmas Traditions


Hello everyone, welcome to blogmas day 4. I can't believe it's the 4th of  December all ready its flying by. Before we know it Christmas eve will be here. Today I was thinking about Christmas traditions. I found out my old advent calendar from when I was little; it's one of those where you fill it yourself. I got it when i was around 3 or 4. My nanan got it me and my cousin one. It's so cute I still love it and have it up today. I was told its a collectors item and might be worth something in time. I'm not bothered about the money and I would never sell it as it is quite sentimental to me. I would love for it to become a item that is passed down the family its so cute when things like that happen. 


   

This is the advent calendar it's so cute I love the detail and colour. The santa at the top is so cute with the beard. My mum used to fill it with chocolate then when it got to the 24th pouch Christmas eve, she used to put a present in it as its quite a big pouch. I loved the tradition of it and it looks really nice as a decoration. I think items like this are so special to keep and look back at all the memories. When I look at it i straight away think of when I was little getting excited about the build up to Christmas day and opening the pouches. I still feel the same way about Christmas and I always will! I will never be a Scrooge type of person! you'll never catch me saying Bah hum bug haha.
