Upcoming Events & March Favourites

Hello Lovelies, so today is Monday (crying) but i do have many exciting things happening this week which i am so so looking forward to! firstly, i am going out into town on Thursday night, first night out in forever! seeing all of my beaut friends who have returned home from Uni will be so nice cause I've missed them all loads! so i might post a few outfits on here if that's something you guys would want to see? Lemme know in the comments below or feel free to message me directly on Twitter/Facebook or through Email :). Secondly i am going away over the Easter weekend to Chapel St. Leonard's for Easter Sunday and my birthday on the bank holiday Monday! So lots of trips around Chapel and surrounding areas :) i will be posting a 'checklist' on Wednesday for you all to see :) and i will be taking lots of photos of outfits and locations for y'all to see so you can enjoy it with me! :)  
So diverting from all the smiley emoticons lets get on to my beloved March favourites! 
1. Because its March and spring is supposed to have sprung i kind of felt as though flowers of some sort had to be part of my favourites as i have been loving these ones particularly because of their pretty colours and because they do look a bit different compared to your ordinary bunch of flowers. 

The combination of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths give the bouquet a spring wildflower sort of feel which i love as it looks like i could have picked them! 
2. Ok so for me, along with this spring-like weather comes dry dull skin which is rough and makes me feel ugly so, i brought this Vaseline intensive care moisturiser which as you know its my March favourites i have been loving. I brought it with the belief that because i love those little Vaseline lip tins that this would work wonders as well and it does! it smells so fresh, makes your skin so smooth and sinks in straight away meaning you don't have to walk around 'air drying' before you put clothes on, and the best part is, it doesn't cost a bomb!

3. Next we have a mascara which i have mentioned recently in my 'Benefit Collection' post, and its the Benefits Roller Lash mascara. I expressed why i loved it so much in that post but i just feel like it is so lovely for spring as it isn't too heavy, if that makes sense? its light and lengthens and lifts and for me its perfect for subtle spring looks. 

4. My fourth favourite, is an intense read. Its very graphic, personal and a truly well written book and i love it, not for its content, but for the author being so completely honest and open when writing this book and the way in which she writes, which i just give her so much credit for. 

I Understand that this is not everyone's idea of light a nighttime read, but i read this out of interest and because i think its important to listen to stories and not just the nice, happy ones. 

5. I have always been a ballistic person when it comes to Lush, mostly because i love the colour changes and the sparkly surprises when you lob your newly purchased bath bomb into your Sunday night bath however this month i have been loving the bubble bars, I've cheated a bit here because I've not actually used Ultraviolet (below) before but hey, bubble bars might be converting me in to a bubble person pretty soon. 

So there it is, my march monthly favourites! i hope you liked today's post guys and it has made you think of your monthly faves, let me know what you think and whether you have any favourites you'd love to share!

Benefit Collection

Hello my lovelies, today i thought it'd be nice to review one of my favourite make-up brands seen as though i am doing my absolute best to keep on top of my blog posts for you lovely lot! 

I do have more than one Benefit product here as these are the products most recently given to me and i like to have more than one product sometimes, so it gives you guys a chance to spot something you may want to buy yourself :)

First up is 'the PORE fessional' primer, it has a smooth and creamy consistency, and has a little tint to it which helps even out your skin tone and of course cover up your pores before applying your foundation. I have to say, its hard for me to find good primer and i mean good... most of them cake on my skin and just sort of patch on my face if you understand what i mean by that! its because my face is neither dry, nor oily, nor normal its a bit of all three really so its hard to find a perfect match. 

Next are my two beautiful mascaras which are titled 'BAD gal lash' and 'Roller Lash'. Personally i prefer using these two products together, BAD gal gives the dark definition with its wide and thick bristled wand and Roller Lash adds the curl and extra length with its skinny separated bristled wand, they are wonder mascaras! As you can tell by the picture i only have the miniatures but i prefer them as i can wiggle their little wands in between each and every lash. Roller Lash also has a gorgeous rose gold lid... oh my. 
High Beam is a beautiful silky smooth liquid that shimmers and shines just like a pearl effect nail varnish but for your face! its tinted pink and is just lovely, i love it what more can i say? apply it to your light contour spots for a subtle pink dewy glow. It comes in a cute lil pot with a screw on lid with a mini brush attached to it, so no more tapping the bottom of your bottle lightly, carefully, trying to encourage the right amount of liquid out. Its all done for you! its 'Beamiful' (see what i did there, oh yes.. i'm good)

So now we are left with Boi-ing in shade 02 accompanied with Eye Bright. Those of you familiar with Benefit products know that Boi-ing is a concealer particularly good as concealing dark under eye circles.. however, as much as i hate to say this, it just doesn't like my skin type at all... i'm pale and most of the time have dry skin which means it just sits there on my face, its quite difficult for me to blend it in and it is a tad too dark for me! Eye Bright does lighten it up a bit and this as a stand alone product is wonderful! it definitely  does what it says on the tin, well, box... :) 

Let me know what you thought of today's post guys and feel free to message or comment with any questions or queries!

Mini Primark Shopping Spree!

Hey Guys!

So its been a while.. i am sorry its been a difficult time for me at the moment so blogging just sort of had to take a back seat in my life. 

Any who i went shopping yesterday with my beaut sister and as you can probably tell from the labels it was a successful trip to Primark!

This NEVER normally happens... i like Primark but i never really buy anything. I mostly browse, pick things up and them put them back in a random place because lets face it.. the ques in that place are longer than those at ASDA on black Friday! So this time  i brought things :) 

The crochet top picked out by my sister is one that Zoella actually brought on her last Primark haul video. I didn't think much of it at first sight but actually trying it on, its surprisingly flattering and doesn't look like something your Nan knitted for next doors dog. I am very into stripes at the moment and thought this would look nice with some black skinny jeans or maybe a skater skirt.

The shorts in the top right are just a plain navy blue runner short, now, i brought some like this from Top shop last year and thought those were reasonably priced.. no where near these bad boys as these were only £3! I like their simplicity and i love comfy shorts in 
summer so these were a win win! The shoes in the bottom right were a little pricey for Primark i thought as these rocked up at £8 but having said that i brought them because i loved them and to be fair you aren't going to find summer flats cheaper than that. 

I have actually always wanted to pull of the flower headband or crown as they are sometimes referred too, so when i went in i tried a few on.. i found that the big flowers really made my head look pea-sized and teeny but the smaller daintier ones actually didn't look half bad! hence why i picked this little beauty up with small pale pink roses dotted across the band with small green leaves in between them. 

Again scrunchies are another thing i wanted to be able to pull off so i picked up this cute pair which has one plain white one and another which is blue with small daisies on it. i feel like accessories are my weakness as i never really accessorize and i feel like i should? so hopefully what I've picked up is a good starting point :).

Finally i picked up these sunglasses... i love the big bug-eye ones which look so cute and fun but they just make me look even smaller then i am so i opted for these, which are a tortoise shell design (let me know if it isn't that i am not too sure!). I chose these because i felt like they would go with a lot of outfits and because of their colour I'm not being too boring going for a plain black or white. 

So, that's it! a long post for today guys, let me know if you have any questions/queries anything like that i would love to hear from you! :)
