Stationary Haul #1

Image
Hey Lovelies,
So when it's comes to stationary I'm abit of a hoarder! Ever since I was allowed to pick my own stationary for school, I've been a magpie for everything stationary related! And now being a blogger, is just another excuse I use for my obsession with buying more stationary. 
Though for some things, I have started to chose practical over pretty...either way it's still more stationary so i'm happy ;) And I thought as a now quite a few other people are stationary addicted just like me, I'd start sharing what I pick up on the blog! So let's get stuck into what I've picked up recently.

So starting off with the slightly boring but essential, notebooks. I used to buy just random pretty notebooks for the big bulk of blog planning, the schedules, drafts and review notes etc but I picked up these once and they do the job. Not the prettiest of notebooks, but the paper is good quality and is perfect for review notes which is what I use the little one for, a…

Review: Maybelline Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils. (in shades Fab Orange & Light It Up.)

Image
Hey Lovelies,
So today I've got a review of one of my favourite products, the Maybelline Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils. I bought these in July and I've barely stopped using them since! I've never really liked lip pencils before but I love these!
So Let's get stuck into the review!
Maybelline Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils. 

What Maybelline Say: 
Our slim lip kohl makes lips pop with on trend shades and a creamy texture. In 10 velvety shades, you'll have too many to choose from!
Price: 
£4.99
available in Boots, Superdrug and online.

My Thoughts: 
We all know how much I love a bold lip, so of course when I saw these on offer I had to pick the bold ones up! I've heard a lot of hype about these, everyone is comparing them to a similar product to Nars but I've never tried the Nars one so I can't draw comparisons.

But I completely love these, they are so creamy and goes onto my lips so perfectly. They are so easy to apply and go to the lips so smooth…

Recent Purchases #1

Hey Lovelies, So as I've recently found a new placement (I start on Monday!), I decided to treat myself to a few things and I'd thought I'd share them on the blog today! Looking through my old posts, I thought I had done this type of post before but the only ones I could see were either Primark or Lush, so this will be my first and i'll have another next week or sometime as I've bought that many beauty products recently...whoops! Anyway, this haul is a mixture of things so let's get straight into it!  So first off, I decided to pick up some new make-up brushes. My make-up brush collection was pretty small before, but a few of them were starting to get a bit worn (one of my eye brushes I've had since I was 18!), so I decided to try some new one and I picked up a individual brush and a set from Real Techniques. I picked up the Expert Face Brush mainly because I had heard a lot of hype around it, and I've used it a few times and I really like it so far. I…

My Favourite Things...July 2015.

Image
Hey Lovelies,
Another month passed, Can't believe there's only 4 months left until the end of the year (and just over a month till my birthday!). And because another month is over, that means only one thing...time for my monthly favourites!
So let's get stuck in!

So this month, I finally re-purchased some of my Holy Grail hair products, starting with Garnier Ultimate Blends The Marvellous Transformer Shampoo & Conditioner. These are completely amazing. Before I started using them again, my hair was out of control. It was frizzy, dry and damaged...it was a right old mess and I thought nothing would fix it. Then I remember how good these were last time, so I bought them again and they have worked wonders. My hair is alot more manageable now and the damage is starting to look better already and I've only been using it for a couple of weeks!
Another Holy Grail product for the same reasons, is the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Conditioner. I've tried a few …

Primark £1 Jewellery Range.

Hey Lovelies,
First off, sorry if the format of this is slightly different I'm using my phone to get this written up!
Anyway, as most know I'm a big lover of Primark, and recently I've noticed a new display in the Jewellery section. All the items in this section are only £1 and there is necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings available.
I've picked up a few bits from the range and thought I'd share what I picked up and my thoughts on them.
So let's get stuck in! Most of the jewellery seems to be small, delicate pieces more than big bold pieces. A mixture of classic and fashion pieces, perfect to add that little finishing piece to any outfit. I've bought quite a few pieces, the only thing I haven't are the rings because I have damn chubby fingers that are too big for Primark rings! I completely love these earrings, there are so delicate and simple but stunning in their own right...perfect to add that little extra to an outfit. The silver feathers are perfect …
