WHERE HAVE I BEEN? & A WISHLIST

Hello, it's me. 


I haven't posted in a little while now and I really want to start again.
It's kind of silly because I have so many ideas written down in a notebook and
the notes on my phone but they seem to just have stayed there.
I didn't have the motivation and I sort of didn't want to follow through.
I think from now, I'll post whenever I really want to instead of just posting because I need to make sure I post a certain amount of times during a month.





Now here's what things are on my wishlist:

1. HP Sprocket
I love printing my picures out and having this would make it so much easier.



2. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish 200ML 
I just recently ran out of this product and then got something else to try but
I definitely want to go back to using this!



3. Wallet Phone Case
I have not yet found one that looks nice and protects my phone.



4. Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly
I currently use a concealer as my eyeshadow base/primer so I want to try
this product instead.



5. Slipper Boots
Need a pair of these now that it's freezing!

Music & shows I'm loving

I love doing these posts because this stuff actually changes unlike
what beauty products I'm using. 



Music I'm loving: 

1. Lia Marie Johnson - DNA
The lyrics are so honest & I love that it tells a real story.


2. Hailee Steinfeld ft Zedd - Starving
This song got stuck in my head.


3. Zara Larsson - Ain't My Fault 
Another one that just got stuck in my head but also
every Zara song is good.


4. Rebecca Black - The Great Divide
I won't lie it took me a while to like this song.


5. Sabrina Carpenter - All We Have Is Love
Just recently found Sabrina's music and now I'm obsessed.



Shows I'm loving: 

1. Switched at Birth 
Found a new favourite show! Absolutely loved watching this and 
I have no idea how I didn't know about it before.
I have really enjoyed learning some sign language whilst watching this show.
Can't wait for the new season.



2. Haters Back Off
I'll admit I was slightly worried about if the show would be good or not when 
Colleen first announced it but somehow Miranda having her own show worked.
It was great! There were a lot of funny parts but also heart warming and emotional.
I really did not expect to turn the way it did at the end.
SEASON TWO HAS TO HAPPEN!



3. One Tree Hill 
I just recently started watching this because I remembered watching bits and bobs
when it was still on tv but I have never seen it from the beginning. 
I'm only on the end of season one but I'm really enjoying it and I know it's gonna 
be one one of my favourites.

Five things I bought because of youtube

There is definitely way more than five but I had to cut it down.


1. Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow
I still use these and I love them!
Do I regret this purchase? : No


2. Rimmel Provocalips Liquid Lipstick
These were the first liquid lipstick I ever tried and I didn't really like them.
Do I regret this purchase? : Yes


3. Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette 
I'm enjoying using this right now but I did stop using it for a long time as
it just isn't that pigmented.
Do I regret this purchase? : Yes


4. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette
This is my favourite palette! Absolutely love it.
Do I regret this purchase? : Definitely not.


5. Mac Lipstick in Velvet Teddy
I'm having a break from this lipstick because I used it that much.
Do I regret this purchase? : No

Trying Kat Von D beauty

I was so excited to finally try this brand when I heard it's coming to the UK.
On the day it launched on the Debenhams website, I wasn't too sure what to get so
I just got the "London calling limited edition makeup set."
 
 


The set includes three mini products - 'studded kiss' lipstick in the shade "Lolita",
'Everlasting' liquid lipstick in "Double dare" and the waterproof 'tattoo liner' in "Trooper"
I received another tattoo liner as a sample with my order so that's great.


Studded kiss lipstick
The lipstick was creamy and super pigmented. I love the packaging!
I am disappointed in the size of the lipstick,
it looks like a sample and definitely not something I paid for.

Everlasting lipstick
I haven't tried this on my lips yet but when it was hard to get off my wrist so
I'm sure this will be very long lasting. I liked the size of this mini!

Tattoo liner
This is definitely the product I'm most excited to try after hearing about it for so long.

Movie reviews | RCM

Watching movies has been one of my favourite pastimes recently.
Some of them are old and some are new.

1. The Lucky One
This one is a few years old but I've never seen it before.
I really enjoyed this movie and I'm obsessed with Taylor Schilling.
Rating: 4/5


2. The Fundamentals of Caring
I love any movie with Selena Gomez in it tbh.
The storyline is good.
Rating: 4/5

3. Vacation
I liked the storyline but I did find some scenes boring.
Rating: 3.5/5

4. Me Before You
Loved this movie and the cast is good.
Rating: 4.5/5

5. Neighbours / Bad Neighbours (1 & 2)
Definitely preferred the second movie as the first one 
gets a little repetitive and boring.
Rating: 3/5 (1)  &  4/5 (2)


6. Mother's Day
I watched purely for some of the cast and although I enjoyed the movie,
I don't think the storyline was that great.
Rating:  3/5


7. Central Intelligence 
Really enjoyed this movie especially since I went to see it at the cinema
and I hadn't been in years. 
Rating: 4/5


8. Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates 
I liked the movie but some of the jokes weren't funny at all.
Loved the cast though.
Rating: 3.5/5

TANYA BAKES BOOK SIGNING

Yesterday I went to Tanya Burr's book signing for her new baking book.
The waterstones staff were very helpful and kind! 
This signing was definitely more organised. 

We talked for a little longer this time which was good (although I really don't remember what I said). I'm so glad that we were allowed pictures together this time. I had the burst setting on so I have about five pictures of the same thing so I wish I asked Tanya to change around the poses but hey ho. 

Sorry for the quality of some of these pictures, I used my phone and I also had to crop a lot out.

I can't wait to start making and eating some of these tasty treats!

#glossierpink

Inspired by Glossier and their latest #glossierpink idea. I thought this would be fun, especially since pink is my favourite colour after black of course. 
These are a few of my favourite (pink) things! 
      



































How I celebrate pink: 
Pink is my happy colour.
I love to wear pink clothing when I want to feel confident.
My favourite time to wear pink toned makeup is spring/summer.
Pink lipsticks are my perfect everyday shade.



Items:
Ted Baker brushes (The great and the gorgeous gift set)
Borjois Colourbrand eyeshadow & liner (04 - Rose Fauviste)
Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24HR (65 - Pink Gold)
Kylie liquid lipsticks (Posie & Candy)
Tanya Burr Cosmetics matte lipsticks (Rhubarb & Custard, Puppy Paws & Martha Moo)

Tanya Burr matte lips | Tanya Burr cosmetics

I picked up all three of the matte liquid lipsticks from Tanya Burr's new collection.
Although I don't get on with liquid lipsticks, I really wanted to give these a try.

















My thoughts
All of the shades are pigmented, they don't dry out your lips and they last long.


Puppy paws is bright baby pink and it is my least favourite.
I personally wouldn't wear this shade as it's so neon and it doesn't suit me.


Rhubarb & custard is another pink shade but darker and more wearable.
Still a little bright for me but I definitely will wear it.


Martha moo is the perfect nude!
It's my favourite of all three. 
(I reccomend this one 100%).
