Christmas Haul!

Hey ladies! I know I've been gone a long time but i am back today to share with you all what i bought for Christmas from my money that family & friends kindly gave me for Christmas :)

This two are the only items in this post that are gifts, the little bracelet is Pandora bracelet from my lovely boyfriend :) & the other is a watch from my mum it is from the Argos by Coleen Rooney  Love these two together :)

 Of course anyone that knows me obviously knows I'm gonna be buying something to do with OTH so i bought this for a bargain! should have been £60 & i bought it for £18 i have some of the seasons but i didn't have season 1 & i absolutely LOVE One Tree Hill :D!

 Had to buy this because i don't think it has been out long & i was so excited to buy & watch this! Sex & The City is one of the best shows ever made!

 Paul's Boutique bag, been looking at this bag for the longest time now & I was so happy when i found this bag, i bought it from Bank for £60 i LOVE this bag!

 River Island purse, needed a new purse & this was the nicest one in the store so i bought this for £20

 Small Jar Yankee Candle in Beach Walk my favourite candle because it smells absolutely amazing! £7.50

 New River Island bag for college standard brown bag, actually has a lot of space inside so i can put all my college things inside :)! £25

 Blackberry Curve phone case! I actually got this from the market near where i live so there is no point me naming it because you might not have a market near you that sells these kind of things but maybe one day you will come across it! 

 Aussie Shampoo & Dual Personality been looking at these for ages! so when i saw the deal on them in Boots i snatched myself two of the products, the offer was 2 for £6!!

 No7 miniature brush set, you change your brush and place it into the handle, i love how it works & for a little price of £7.50 :)!

 I was gonna buy this a couple of weeks ago in the gift set isle in Superdrug & I'm so glad i didn't because when i went in today it was half price! 3 Gosh items for £5 i actually couldn't believe it, there was other colours aswell but this one stood out to me :)!

2 finger ring from Primark for £1.50 absolutely love this!

Favourite Products!

Hey Guys & Dolls, I'm back today to share with you not my November or December favourites but kind of somewhere in the middle haha. I just wanted to share with you what i am using on my face on a day to day basis.
 If you have an oily face & you don't have this product i HIGHLY recommend you to rush out now! just to buy! i seriously cant bare to think how i looked without this Mac Pressed Blot Power, as soon as you apply it onto your face you see a transformation straight away!

 This Blush is my absolute favourite! Its the only No7 blush that i own & to be honest i only bought it because i got £5 off so that made it something like £3.50 & i wasn't really sure if i would be able to get used to this because its a little darker than my other pink blushers, but its amazing & i wear it every day!

 Only just bought this foundation really, & I'm getting used to it, its a big change to go from a MAC foundation to a drugstore one, but i love how this applies, not sure if i will be buying it again or if I'm gonna go back to MAC but I'm gonna carry on using this until it all goes :)

 Collection 2000 Eye Definition & Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara, again already blogged about the mascara so check out what i thought here, & the liner i love because the brush is so tiny so you can do your line thin or chunky its up to you :)

 MAC Hue lipstick, not gonna say too much because i have already highly recommended this before & I'm sure alot of you already own it but if you don't then go & try it out, i LOVE it :)

 Concealer by MAC love this, hides all my blemishes & does what any normal concealer does but better!

 I always change my eye products around but i always find myself using every product in this palette! I recommend everyone to go out & buy any of Lauren Luke's Palettes shes so talented & her products are just as amazing as the makeup she can create! This palette is the Smokey Eye just a dark palette go check out her other palette's anything ranging from natural to smokey :) check out the other palette's here

FIX+ well what can i say about this that you already haven't heard? makes my face makeup last longer if i give it a spray on my foundation & if i spray my eye brushes when using a pigment they last so long! If you already don't have this product then go & get it!

Yankee Candles!

Hey Guys & Dolls!
I'm so excited about my new post today! I have been seeing these Yankee Candles all over recently on YouTube & i was going to order some tonight because i was shopping all day & i thought i would treat myself when i got home to some online shopping, but when i was walking round meadowhall i had a sudden urge to go into Clinton Cards, never ever go in there unless its for my Bf's cards or close family & when i walked through the doors i nearly died! 3 full cabinets of Yankee Candles! I was in Candle heaven, i was in there for ages! Me & my boyfriend were just smelling LOADS of candles! I snatched some up straight away. Then we walked round the corner to a little ornament shop, to find MORE Yankee Candle that were cheaper! I'm sure my bf was getting very frustrated with all the Candle shopping but i LOVED it!
Here are which candles i bought;

I bought a 'Holder'? that i could place my candles in whilst there burning :)
Holds any size apart from the Tart candle :)

Candle Tart

Left: Christmas Eve      Right: Freshly Cut Roses         

My favourite is the Beach Walk, i have already burnt that one, but I'm most excited about burning the Christmas Eve one, but of course i have to wait for that day :D!
Have you guys got any Yankee Candles & if so which candle is you favourite? I cant wait to get more!!!!!

New Tattoo

Hey Guys & Dolls, so i thought i would share my new tattoo with you all, well... its not so new now its about 3-4 weeks old haha. This is the third tattoo that i have. Yes i am only 17 so it is illegal but its not my fault if someone is willing to give you a tattoo underage, trust me i have seen 13 year olds with them :)

So i wanted one that sums up my life with beauty & makeup, i wanted the quote 'A girl should be two things; Classy & Fabulous' but i was having it on the back of my neck so it would have been way too big :)

Its very scabby.....

This is the final look for my tattoo, I'm thinking about getting a design all the way down my back so its not too plain but not just yet, I'm going to wait a couple of years first :)
For those that are wondering what my other tattoos are, i have a pink bow on my right wrist & a C (obviously for my name) on the other wrist :)
Do you have any tattoo's that you want to share?

Review: Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara

Hey Guys & Dolls!
I'm here to do another review or you all on the mascara that i have been using for longer than a month & give you my personal opinion on :)

So if you have been following my posts then you will know that i bought the mascara quite a while ago and i wanted to get my own opinion because Rimmel are saying that its 'lash growth'
To any of you who are not familiar with this mascara you have to use it for 3Odays to see an actual change to your lashes, if they do what is expected then your lashes will grow longer & the mascara will look amazing! So i wanted to share with you how Rimmel are advertising it on their website.

'Our first mascara and lash treatment in one that works both instantly, and overtime. The advanced ultra-lengthening formula instantly makes lashes appear up to 80% longer. Over time, the unique Grow-Lash Complex strengthens, nourishes and renews lashes to promote natural lash growth for up to 117% longer looking lashes after 30 days. Discover the secret to beautifully long, natural lashes!'

I must say that i agree with them 1OO% this mascara is the best Rimmel product that i have EVER owned and i will definitely restock over and over! My lashes are long & they are even looking fuller than what they used to, people that i know do ask me if I'm using a different mascara because of how my lashes are looking, which is what i wanted.
Because you all know that i am studying Makeup & Beauty i do perform treatment on clients and i must say every client that i have had whilst being there have asked me what mascara i use!
I definitely recommend this mascara to anyone that doesn't like their eyelashes & wants them too look more full & longer then this is definitely the mascara for you!  The only thing i also hated with different mascaras was how they clumped up if i put too much on, but this mascara doesn't, its great!
I know some other brands are bringing out their own type of mascara that's supposed to do the exact same but i will be honest i haven't tried any of them so this is a definite YES!

If you have already tried this product & have a different view on it then i do then please share your thoughts with me :)

Pigments & New hair.

Hey guys & dolls.
So you all know i purchased my first pigments the other week from MAC and i have been experimenting with them since. So i can find the right look for what i would use on an every day to day basis and i have finally come up with one look that i LOVE.

Sorry for the crap pictures but its 7:OOpm and it gets dark now around 4:OOpm so i had no look in getting a good picture at this time but atleast i tried :)

So that's my look, first of all i prime my eye, i used the primer from my Lauren Luke palette, i put the Vanilla pigment on 3/4 of my eyelid, then the rest of my eye i put the Tan pigment from MAC, i love both colours & i love the consistency of the pigments! I only have two pigments so far & i cant wait to purchase more :)!

Do you guys own any MAC pigments? :)

OK, so many of you know by my pictures that i had really red hair, Ive been red now for a couple of months, a good 6-7 months anyway :) & when i am watching all these YouTube Guru's that have lovely brown hair i just felt like having my old hair back,  everyone that i knew hated the idea of me going back brown because they said 'It suited me too much' but i just couldn't keep up with it & my roots were always a nightmare, i didn't go fully brown i kept it like a burgundy colour, so here's my new hair :)

Let me know if you like it or not :)!

Whats inside my little bag?

Hey Guys & Dolls so i went to the cinema the other day and only had about 1Omins to shop.... how bad is that! but there was only one item that i really wanted to go & buy.. from this bag can you tell where i went?

YES! Lush was calling my name, and of course theres only one item everybody wants to own at this time which is Snow Fairy! This is actually my first time trying out this product but most of you know that i have the Bubblegum Lip scrub & i absolutely LOVE that smell and i have heard alot of comments saying how this smells the same & with it being Limited Edition (Only comes in stores at Christmas) i knew i had to go out & buy it!

So i bought the Medium sized. Theres three sized bottles a Small Medium & a Large. I'm not too sure how much the large one has inside but the small has 1OOg which prices around £3.50 and the medium has 25O which prices at £5.50 and i think the large one is around 8 or 9 pounds but I'm not too sure. Anyway this Shower gel smells absolutely gorgeous! It says on the bottle that you can use it on your hair too but I'm a little concerned about what goes on my hair so i think I'm just going to let it make my body smell absolutely GORGEOUS!

So whilst i was having a little rummage around Lush i noticed one of these containers, i have seen them before but i wasn't too sure on what they were for so i just left them. I took a closer look yesterday and fell in love with the packaging around this tube, its amazing! They call it the 'Bath Ballistic or Ballistic Tube' something like that :) and i know that when i go to Lush and buy so many products some of them don't have a home so they have to stay in the bag. So as soon as i saw this i knew i needed one because now i can keep all my Bath Balls in one area that looks so cool :)!
