BEAUTY: Benefit Haul


So a few weeks ago I went into Debenhams to 'have a look' at the benefit counter as its always so pretty and I wanted to have a nosey at the new Air Patrol eye BB cream and who knew, I ended up walking out £46 poorer!

FASHION: 'Parisian Chic with a little Manchester Street Style'


I shall first start off by apologising for being a little MIA recently, I've just been getting back into the swing of uni life (second year is tough!), meeting new friends and catching up with old ones, BUT take a moment... I actually have a fashion post for you! I thought I'd share this gorgeous top with you guys...because it is simply stunning!

BEAUTY: New Makeup Setup

Recently I moved into my new uni flat and it is literally a bloggers dream! White IKEA furniture and fairylights everywhere! But I thought I'd show you my new makeup set up as I am so pleased with it!

PRODUCT REVIEW: Wake Me Up vs Match Perfection


Rimmel seem to be quite well known for their foundations, I feel like they're comparible or even better than some high end foundations- and we need to get past the assumption that higher cost equals better quality because that isn't always the case so here's a run down of my two favourite drug store foundations.

GET THE LOOK: Classic Red Lip

"I've got that red lip classic thing that you like"... I couldn't wear red lipstick and not quote T Swift...right?!

GET THE LOOK: Neutral Eye

Another Face of the Day today! I was particularly happy with this look and was almost gutted I didn't have any where to wear it to (Let's be serious, I was gutted!)

GET THE LOOK: Everyday Face

Hello Everybody! I thought I'd do a little 'Everyday FOTD' as at the moment this appears to be my 'go-to' look, obviously I change around my eyeshadows a little bit but the bulk of the products I've been using have been very similar recently- so boring I know! Maybe I just need more makeup...or maybe thats just another excuse!

BEAUTY: To Prime or not to Prime?



I feel like primers are the Kanye Wests of the makeup world... you either love them or hate them. I for one, love primers (as you can probably tell!) they are super helpful in increasing the staying power of foundations and eye shadow, there are many different types of primers which do many different things, so I thought I'd run through some of my most used ones.

LIFE: Summer Freebees!

 Anyone else that summer is always a great time for magazine freebees and sometimes only buys the magazine for the gifts?! ME TOO!

FOOD: M&M/Oreo squares




Ladies & Gentlemen, if heaven was in food form, this would be it, these little gems of sweetness are to die for... I found this recipe online and it said it was perfect for using up old ingredients, part of that I agree with- the flour and butter part, but not so much the chocolate part. Anyone who knows me will know that I would never have 'spare' chocolate and cookies just lying around, it just wouldn't happen! But these looked too good not to bake, and they taste AMAZING!

BEAUTY: Make Up Basics!


This post may be super useful for those of you just starting out with makeup or if you want some ideas of makeup to pack for a weekend away, these are all drugstore products which I would say make up the perfect basics kit. All of which are under £10.

LIFE: Staying on the Grounds of Hogwarts?!



Regardless of how good the uni social life is, sometimes a much needed break is in order, so the other weekend I swapped the buzzing uni halls for a tranquil weekend away with my family. Obviously being a student, I don't see my parents all that much so they came up to visit and we all stayed on the grounds of Newstead Abbey.

BEAUTY: February Favourites


It feels like I'm writing 'monthly favourite' posts all the time- time is going scarily fast! Anyways; here are a couple of things- makeup and life things that I have been loving this month! I thought I'd mix it up a bit and combine some more 'lifey' things

LIFE: Have Cats Taken Over My Life?!


Anyone who knows me well or closely follows my social media sites (Instagram, Twitter) will know that I love cats... I feel like there isn't really a way I can write down how much I LOVE cats... safe to say I am a cat person, perhaps even a 'crazy cat person!' SO this post features a few ways to know if you're on the way to becoming a crazy cat person (Unfortunately I think I'm already there).

GET THE LOOK: What's On My Face Today (Higher End Edition)



I have decided to write a WOMF Higher end edition as I did a drugstore edition the other day so thought I'd show the products I may wear if I'm really making an effort or going on an evening out or something.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Stila After Glow Lip Crayons


I have a feeling I may have mentioned these lip crayons before but Oh My Goodness I have fallen back in love with them! If you are someone who really can't be bothered with the 'faff' of lipstick and lipliners then these are perfect!

So Valentines Day is tomorrow and whether you're going on a date with that special someone or just hanging with your friends on Valentines day these makeup goodies are gorgeous for a 'date night' look. There is most definitely a pink theme going on here, and they can either all be worn together or just a few of these products to create a gorgeous, subtle date night look.

PRODUCT REVIEW: POREfessional


Let's just begin by saying... the packaging of this primer is adorable! I love how Benefit design their packaging as it's quite different to many high-end brands.

BEAUTY: Updated Skin Care Regime



I'm pretty sure years ago I wrote a post on the products I use on my skin; and to be really honest, I doubt my routine has changed a lot more from there, BUT; if you're new to my blog... then this may be of interest!

FOOD: Healthy Meals on a Budget


As a student, it's so tempting to just eat takeaways and at the SU the entire time but I would really miss fresh food if I did that (sad I know!) but also eating healthily can be beneficial for your skin and health, so I thought I would compile a few example meals/snacks which can be made on a budget but are healthy and tasty!

LIFE: "If You'll Look Back in Ten Years and Laugh About It... It's Not Worth Worrying About"

After catching up on numerous tv shows this evening, I am now sat here at 2am thinking about the year (don't worry I haven't broken my new years resolutions already) but just about how far I have come, emotionally, from this time a few years ago... or even last year; in a cheesy kind of way, I am proud of myself. I have a really personal blog post which has been sat in my drafts for honestly a year now, which I have never had the courage to publish- simply because of a fear of people's reactions and judgements. But I feel like now I want to take a different 'spin' on the topic and make it a far more positive post because to me, that reflects where I am now, a lot better.
