Early Christmas | Blogmas Day #9

As I mentioned in a few of my previous blogmas posts, my uni flatmates,some of our friends and I celebrated Christmas early as this week was the last full week we would all be together before Christmas. 

Once everyone arrived at our house we all had a cocktail,  exchanged secret santa presents and then opened them at the same time. From my secret santa I received a really nice Elf eyeshadow palette, which I've already used a lot and can tell it will become a staple in my makeup routine, a full length mirror (we were in desperate need of one in our uni house haha) and a drinking game which may have been put to good use later in the night...

After present swapping, we started making dinner. It took a bit longer than we expected, but in the end the dinner turned out really well and we were all quite proud of it! It wouldn't be Christmas without crackers, would it? We all pulled a cracker, told our bad jokes and put our paper hats on for a picture. 

After a few more of our friends arrived, including one of my friends who I haven't seen since September as she was in England at University, that's when the party began. We got ready for going out (you can find my Christmas party makeup look here) and made use of the drinking game that I got for Christmas. All 9 of us then headed out where we had a great time dancing. Earlier in the day we learnt the 'Footloose' dance so we busted that out for just about every song we could haha. It was one of the best nights out I've had in a while with some great people!

Have you ever celebrated Christmas early?

Christmas Makeup Look | Blogmas Day #8

It's nearly Christmas and you know what that means? It's party season! Whether it's a work party, a family party or a Christmas night out with your friends you want your makeup to fit the festive feeling. So, I've decided to share my go-to makeup look for this year with you.

Starting with the face, I like to use a long-lasting foundation with a high coverage for parties so I apply this Revlon Color Stay foundation in the shade 'natural beige' (which I'm aware is a good few shades darker than my skin tone, but it's to match my fake tan) all over my face using my damp Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge for an even finish. I then apply the Soap & Glory kick-ass concealer in 'light' under my eyes, on any spots, around my nose and down the bridge of it. This conceals any imperfections and helps to highlight parts of my face. Using the trusty Rimmel Stay Matte powder I set all of this in place. 

Moving onto the eyes, I apply the Urban Decay primer all over my lids using my finger and blend the shade 'Naked' from the first Naked palette into my crease. I then pack the shade 'Sidecar' all over my lid, leaving a space in the middle of my lid with no product on it. In this space I add the shade 'Half Baked'. To darken up the crease I blend the shade 'Buck' into it and gradually add a small amount of 'Darkhorse' on the outer 'V' of my eyelid I blend the shade 'Hustle'. I just continue to blend until it looks blended well enough. 

I'll then leave my eyes for the time being, and move onto contour. Using the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush I'll apply the Sleek bronzer from their contour palette under my cheekbones, my jawline, to my forehead and down my nose to make it appear slimmer. I'll blend this in using the Real Techniques brush and then to soften it a little bit more I'll use the Real Techniques sponge. To apply my Bare Minerals blusher in 'Your Highness' I use the Eco-Tools powder brush. I finish off my face makeup by sweeping a bit of the bronze shade from the Sleek 'Cleopatra Kiss' highlighter on the tops of my cheekbones, down my nose and on my cupids bow. 

 Moving back to the eyes, I apply the darkest shade 'hustle' to my lower lash line and using the L'oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim to add a small wing to my upper lash line. Using a black pencil liner I line my upper waterline and then I'll apply a set of Ardell Demi Whispie Lashes and coat my lashes with the Benefit Roller Lash mascara. For my eyebrows, I first brush through them with a spoolie and afterwards fill them in using the powder from the Barry M Brow Kit and the Eco-Tools angled brush. To complete my eye look I add a little bit of the shade 'virgin' from the Naked Palette to the inner corner of my eye and my brow bone.

And finally, to finish off the look I'll apply the Barry M Matte Lip Paint in the shade 'Obsessed'.

 What's your go-to Christmas party makeup look?

Christmas Traditions | Blogmas Day #6

Hey everyone! So, it's actually 3am on the 7th of December, but I haven't been to sleep yet so this still counts as day 6, right? I didn't get a chance to post this earlier because after coming home from a day full of lectures, I had to finish an assignment, baked some mini cheesecakes in preparation for our early Christmas at uni tomorrow (more on that to come soon!) and then we may have ended up heading to McDonalds...So all in all it's been quite a busy day haha. 

We have quite a few Christmas traditions in my family. In fact, any time someone in my family suggests doing something different, me and my sister always find ourselves repeating "but it's tradition!" I'm actually really sad this year as my sister, Claire, gets married in 2017 and so won't be at our house on Christmas Eve/ Day and won't be joining us until boxing day. I was reminiscing about all of the traditions that would change after this year and  thought I'd share some of them with you!

Christmas PJs
Although we only started to do this in the past 6 or 7 years, it has definitely become a tradition now  to open a present, obviously containing jammies, on Christmas  Eve to wear that night. I'm a big fan of this tradition because who doesn't love new pyjamas?

Creating 'The Plan' 
Ever since we were younger, me, Claire and one of my brothers, David, would all congregate in one of our bedrooms to discuss the plan for Christmas morning. Of course, there's absolutely no need for this as we pretty much follow the same routine on Christmas day every single year. Nevertheless, we still do it because "it's tradition!"

Claiming the Perfect Present Spot
Santa's gotta know who's presents to put where, right? So, we claim our spot which is always the same, but every single year my brother and sister argue about who gets their presents on the fireplace haha. When we were little we actually used to leave little 'Santa leave my presents here' notes, but we don't do this anymore.

Turkey, Ham & Stuffing Sandwiches
I think this is one of my favourite traditions. After opening our presents and before we have our dessert, we'll make sandwiches out of the dinner leftovers and they are so good. A little bit of turkey, some of mi madres honey glazed ham, stuffing and bon appetite!

Disguising Presents
We have this tradition in our house which, as far as I can remember, started way back in the day when my dad decided to wrap up a turkey leg as a joke as part of my mum's present. Now, we all wrap presents up in random boxes and bags to try and make the other person think they've got something completely ridiculous. Thanks dad haha.

What traditions do you have in your family?

Music Monday | Top 5 Christmas Songs 2016 | Blogmas Day #5

This year I've seemed to stray away from the classic Christmas songs that I'd usually listen to and I've started listening to more recent Christmas songs. Of course, there are a few exceptions such as The Pogues' 'Fairy Tale Of New York', Mariah Carey's 'All I want for Christmas' and Wham's 'Last Christmas' but these are the songs I've found myself listening to the most so far this year. 

Santa Tell Me - Ariana Grande

Hoping For Snow - The Vamps

My Only Wish (This Year) - Britney Spears

One More Sleep - Leona Lewis

Mistletoe - Justin Bieber

Which Christmas songs have you been listening to the most this year?

Christmas Jumper Wishlist | Blogmas Day #4

Don't get me wrong, I love an ugly Christmas jumper as much as the next person, but I prefer cute Christmas jumpers that I can wear outside of my house. Here's a few of my favourites this year from the likes of Boohoo, Asos and H&M.

Which is your favourite?

Stocking Fillers Under £5 | Blogmas Day #3

I don't know about everyone else, but in my family, stockings always contain things that we need: toothbrushes, deodorant, shower gel, etc. But they also contain some smaller things that we'd like that aren't too expensive. Sometimes, I would be happy just to receive a stocking! Hence, I decided to make this post.

Soap and Glory Pink Twice 

Socks/ fluffy socks

Lip balm

Nail polish
Notebook/ diary
Mini Yankee Candles
Sleek Say The Magic Word Mini Matte Me Collection - £5 at boots
Adult colouring book
Is there anything you would like to find in your stocking on Christmas day?

All I Want For Christmas... | Blogmas Day #2

Welcome back for day #2 of Blogmas! In today's post I'm going to share what's on my wishlist for this year. I don't expect to get everything on this list - I'd be appreciative of even just one of these items! Hopefully, if you're stuck for ideas for your Christmas list or for ideas for presents, this will help you. 

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8
I love taking photographs and capturing memories. I think Polaroids make photos seem that little bit extra special and cute. I have a cork board in my uni room with some Polaroids that I got printed out online and I'd love to add to them by taking my own Polaroids.  

It wouldn't be Christmas without a new pair of pyjamas. This is always something I'm sure I'll get to open on Christmas Eve to wear especially for Christmas.

Topshop Scarf
I fell in love with this scarf when I saw it on the Topshop website; I love the colours and it looks so cosy!

Spectrum Makeup Brushes
I'm in need of some new makeup brushes, particularly eye makeup brushes. I love the marble and rose gold design of the spectrum brushes and I've heard that they're supposed to be great quality. 

Girl Online Going Solo
After reading Zoe's first two books, I can't wait to read the third instalment. It would make for perfect light reading over the Christmas season.

Holding Up the Universe
This is another book that I've been anticipating. I've heard some good reviews about the book and, again, it would be ideal to cosy up in front of the fire with over Christmas. 

Blue Ripped Jeans
I don't actually own that many pairs of blue skinny jeans, and the ones that I do have are either not skinny enough (the excess material around the ankles is the bane of my life) or they've ripped at the belt loops (I'm not the only one that happens to when I pull up my jeans, right?). 

Black Ripped Jeans
I'm in desperate need of some new black ripped skinny jeans. It's gotten to the stage where the slight rip in the knee has become a rather large hole and they're more of a grey colour now rather than their original black.

Olivia Burton Watch
Since starting University, I've realised a watch is kind of a necessity. My phone always seems to run out of battery during the day and I need to be able to tell the time to get to my lectures/ my bus. I really love this Olivia Burton one and I think the rose gold face and grey strap compliment each other really well and would go with any outfit. 

Liz Earle Cleanser, toner and moisturiser
I'm beginning to run low on my skincare products and a girl's gotta take care of her skin. The Liz Earle skincare range is my favourite. 

Lush Snow Fairy
Snow fairy reminds me so much of Christmas and I love the scent, but I can never justify spending so much on a shower gel for myself. 

Mac Lipstick in 'Mehr'
I've been eyeing this lipstick up for a while now. It seems like the perfect nude lipstick for me and I feel like I'd use it a lot.

Tartlette in Bloom Palette
How pretty is this palette? The eyeshadows look gorgeous and they're all shades I would wear on a daily basis. I've also been eyeing this up for a while, so it would be lovely.  

What's on your wishlist this year?

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas | Blogmas Day #1

Happy Blogmas! Yes, you read that correctly - I'm doing Blogmas this year! Are you excited? I am.

Christmas is my favourite time of the year and there's nothing I love more than getting some Christmas tunes on and decorating the house. As soon as the tree goes up it instantly feels like Christmas. The tinsel, the baubles, the fairy lights; it all makes it feel so magical. 

This year I'm lucky enough to get to decorate two houses: my family home and my uni house. So, to start off Blogmas I thought I'd share some nice photos of all of the decorations to get us all into the Christmas spirit.

At home, we went a little bit more traditonal with red and gold decorations on a green tree. However, with three (basically four) girls living in a house by ourselves, we decided to go for a white tree with gold and rose gold decorations  - so pretty! 

Are you excited for Blogmas/ are you doing Blogmas on your blog this year?

Music Monday | My Current Top 5 Songs

I've been absolutely loving music that has been in the charts recently and it's been so hard to to choose just 5 songs to add to this list. There were a couple that just missed out. If I were to write a list of all the songs I'm currently loving, this list would be extensive!  I've been loving songs with more chilled, acoustic vibes (as you'll see with most of the songs on this list).

So, here's my current top 5 songs:

Say You Won't Let Go - James Arthur
"I'm gonna love you til my lungs give out, I promise til death we part, like in our vows."
How can you not love this song? It's so beautiful and James Arthur's voice is so nice to listen to; I've been listening to this on repeat! If a man sang this to you would you not marry him on the spot?

When You Love Someone - James TW
"It don't make sense but nevertheless, you gotta believe us, it's all for the best."
Another chilled song that I've been loving. This is really catchy and I love singing along to it. Again, I really enjoy listening to James TW's voice and I think it's a song that could resonate with quite a lot of people. 

This Town - Niall Horan
"If the whole world was watching, I'd still dance with you, drive highways and byways to be there with you."
Aww wee Niall! How could I not add this song to this list? Told you I was loving the more acoustic sound at the moment. Niall's voice is beautiful and I really like the lyrics. I'm sorry to any directioners but I think I prefer Niall solo! 

Mercy - Shawn Mendes
"Consuming all the air inside my lungs, ripping all the skin from off my bones, I'm prepared to sacrifice my life, I would gladly do it twice."
Shawn is killin' it at the moment with his new album and his singles. I love Shawn's voice so much and I seem to like pretty much every song he releases so there was no doubt that this song would be on this list.

Shout Out To My Ex - Little Mix
"Guess I should say thank you for the hate yous and the tattoos, oh baby I'm cool by the way, ain't sure if I loved you anyway."
This is the only song that isn't chilled. In fact, it's nowhere near chilled at all! This is a really feel good song and I have to belt the lyrics to this out at the top of my lungs. If I had just broken up with a boy, this would definitely be my f-you break up song haha!

What songs have you been loving recently?

October Favourites

Long time no blog! I've been super busy recently with university assignments (they don't break you in easily do they?) and socialising with my friends and flatmates that I haven't gotten a chance to write! I can't believe October is over already - it's crazy! There have been a few things that I've been loving throughout the month so I thought I would share them with you.

Make-up Revolution Matte Eye Shadow Palette
I had been looking for a matte eye shadow palette for a while that wouldn't break the bank (I'm a poor student now, you know?) and when a friend recommended the Make-up Revolution palettes I picked one up. For only £4 it's actually pretty good! It's not incredibly pigmented, but it creates a soft matte eye look, which is exactly what I wanted for a daytime eye look.

Dove Moroccan Body Oil
This has been a favourite of mine since about August. I use this in the shower and it leaves my skin feeling silky smooth. It has also replaced conditioner as my go-to for shaving my legs; it  leaves my legs feeling so soft after shaving. I love it!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
In October I stopped using my Real Techniques sponge (purely because it was ready for the bin) and used the Expert Face Brush for the first time in over a year. Usually, I prefer the finish that I get with a sponge and it takes less time to blend foundation than with a brush, but I've actually been loving spending a bit more time on my foundation and the finish that this gives. I definitely noticed a difference in how my foundation looked - it was a lot less cake-y. 

Make-Up Revolution Setting Spray
I've been looking to try the Urban Decay setting spray for a while but, honestly, I couldn't justify spending £22 on a setting spray (see my point about being a poor student in my first favourite). I spotted this setting spray in Superdrug for a fiver and picked it up, not really expecting it to make much of a difference to my makeup. However, I've noticed that my makeup does stay on for longer after spraying it with this. I've been using it before all of my nights out and I haven't really needed to powder when I've been out!

Ardell Demi Wispies False Eyelashes
After hearing people rave about these lashes for years on Youtube and in blog posts, I finally decided to pick up a pair. The glue is amazing! It's the best false eyelash glue I've ever used and the lashes look really natural and pretty. I'll definitely be repurchasing these in the future. 

Barry M Lipstick in 'Obsessed'
This is a matte pink toned nude lipstick that I find to be very long lasting on the lips; my sister even noticed how long lasting it was while I was wearing it. For me, it's the perfect nude colour as I prefer my nudes to be pink toned rather than brown. It dries  my lips out a little bit, but what matte lipstick doesn't? I've been wearing this a lot throughout October and I'll probably continue to do so in November. I might even have to pick up some more shades of this lipstick.

Colgate Max White One Toothpaste
Recently I've noticed my teeth have been looking a little bit yellow (I blame it on all of the tea that I've been drinking since moving to uni) so I had been looking at different options for teeth whitening that wouldn't cause lots of sensitivity. My sister introduced me to this and I noticed results from the very first use. My teeth are definitely looking whiter than they previously were and my confidence is raising because of it also!

What were you loving in October?

Pitta Pocket Pizza

Since starting uni almost a month ago now, I've learnt a few things about cooking my own meals: 

1. You want to make the cheapest possible meals. 

2. You can't really be bothered to make meals when you get in from a long day of lectures and seminars.

3. You consider ordering takeouts all the time (especially when you get student discounts).

One thing I've practically been living off is pitta pocket pizzas. They basically combine everything in the list above - they're cheap, easy and taste like proper pizza, but they're better for you than pizza! What more could you want? 

To make these all you need is some wholemeal pitta bread, tomato purée, meat of your choice (I usually go for ham), cheese, or anything you would normally get on a pizza. 

First of all you need to make a little pocket out of your pitta bread. A trick my sister taught me is to heat the pitta bread up for a minute or two to make it easier to cut. Then, you spread on your tomato purée and add the rest of your ingredients. To cook my pitta pocket pizzas I use a small George Foreman grill that I got for a tenner in Argos. I don't think I could live without this at uni because it can be used to cook any thing from toasties to chicken. But if you don't have one of these I'm sure a normal grill will work just fine. I usually cook my pitta pockets until the cheese has completely melted and leave them to cool for a few minutes before digging in. 

Voila! A cheap, healthy, tasty meal that anyone could make.

Bridget Jones' Baby | Film Review

It’s become a bit of a tradition now that my flatmates and I go to the cinema on a Tuesday night to see a film. The first film we went to see together was ‘Bridget Jones’ Baby’ and straight after watching it, I knew I wanted to write a post reviewing it.

I was highly anticipating the release of ‘Bridget Jones’ Baby’ because I’ve seen the first two films numerous times and it’s gotten to the stage where I no longer find them that funny. I wasn’t expecting to like this film more than the previous two Bridget Jones films though, but it happened.

From the very start of the film I was laughing at the ridiculous, although relatable, life of Bridget Jones. There were definitely points in the film when my friend and I turned to each other, laughing, and said ‘that’s you’. I think the story line was really interesting and I loved how there were references and flashbacks to the first two films. There was even an appearance from Ed Sheeran!

I loved the character of Jack in the film; he was so sweet, and how can you not think Patrick 
Dempsey is hot? However, my love for Mark Darcy is still there even though Colin Firth has looked better… Although Hugh Grant isn’t in this film, they still acknowledged his character, Daniel, which I feel was very appropriate for him and it made me laugh a lot.

I really liked the soundtrack to the film as it featured so many good songs, including the stereotypical Bridget Jones song ‘All By Myself’. After seeing the film, Ellie Goulding’s song ‘Still Falling For You’ has quickly become one of my current favourites.

The one thing I think the film was missing? An epic fight scene between the two male characters, or even one more fight between Colin Firth and Hugh Grant, like there was in the first two films. I was waiting for it throughout the whole film; at one stage I thought it was coming but was highly disappointed when it didn’t. That’s the only thing that I would change about the film as it’s the first film I’ve seen in a while that made me laugh as much as this did.

Have you seen Bridget Jones’ Baby?

My First Week at University

So, I’ve just returned home for the weekend after spending my first week at university.  I moved in on Sunday and it was…interesting to say the least. Numerous bottles of Dettol and a bottle of bleach later and the house was just about habitable! When we arrived there was so much dirt and dust and hairs everywhere. The worst part? VOMIT ON THE BANISTER!!! We actually couldn’t believe how dirty the flat was when we arrived considering it was supposed to be clean for us arriving. A complaint will definitely have to be made! ! Enjoy this picture of me trying to clean the shower before bed:

I requested to live with my friend, Lauren, but we didn’t know the other girl, Hayley, who was supposed to be living with us. We had talked to her on Facebook, but that’s not the same as meeting someone in real life, is it? I was quite apprehensive about meeting her as I wasn’t sure what she was like or whether or not we’d get along, but thankfully she’s lovely and we all get on really well, which is good considering we’ll be living with each other for the next year! We’ve also made friends with a girl called Sophie in one of the flats near us. She’s also lovely and is practically like another housemate to us – she’s even been added to our flats group chat. I feel like I’ve known both Hayley and Sophie for years because of how easy it was to get along with them. Our first night in the house we cooked dinner together and it was really good if I do say so myself.

It's definitely strange for me, moving from a house with 7 people in it to one with only 3 (or 4)! It’s also strange going from sharing a bedroom with my older sister to having my own room. It's makes it worse that when I go home on the weekends my sister won't even be at home because she usually stays at her fiancés house, so I'll barely see her.
My first night in the house I didn't get too much sleep. I didn't fall asleep until after 3 and then woke up around 6; the rest of the week it wasn’t much better. Some of it was down to nerves, some of it was down to the uncomfortable mattress, and some of it was down to our noisy neighbours who were partying well into the wee hours of the morning.  

My first proper day at uni I was pretty nervous but I travelled to the uni with my housemates and met up with some friends from school as well which made me feel a bit better knowing I had some familiar faces with me. I really didn't have anything to be nervous about though. I got talking to some lovely people who were doing my course and the lecturers were all really down to earth and funny as well. I’m quite excited to start my course now!

I’ve had a really fun week at uni, doing something every day/night with my flatmates (that includes Sophie haha) and a few of my friends from school. On Sunday night we had a few drinks in our flat and a chat to get to know each other, on Monday night we went to the students union for the Fresher’s Launch Party, Tuesday during the day we took part in a treasure hunt run by the students union, Tuesday night we went to the cinema to see Bridget Jones’ Baby (review coming soon!) and on Wednesday night we had a few people over for pre-drinks before going to a fresher’s party at a nightclub. We stayed in the ‘farmers bar’ section of the nightclub (not it’s actual name of course, but we nicknamed it because it had country music and was filled with farmers) most of the night; it was much better craic and we enjoyed it more than the main part of the nightclub, which played rave music, because most of us are country gals. Afterwards, the people we had over for pre-drinks (who I didn’t actually know very well as we’d only met them the day before!) came back to ours and we had a few more drinks and a bit of a laugh. It was a really great night, one of the best I’ve had in a while actually! On Thursday, my best friend Lauren and friend Rebecca came to visit us and the cuties brought us some snacks and flowers for the flat! Of course  we didn't have a vase so we embraced the uni life and used a bottle hahah. 

My first week has been a great experience and, despite my initial nervousness and little bit of homesickness, I had so much fun and I can’t wait for this year. Although, that could change once classes start and the assignments start rolling in.

I have to say though that I can't wait to sleep in my own bed tonight! 

Have you started uni, school or sixth form this september?

Things Everyone Who Wears Glasses Experiences

I've worn glasses for more than half of my life now and although I'm basically completely blind without them and need them to see there are many problems and little things that come with wearing glasses. So, I've come up with a list of things that I've experienced in my many years of wearing glasses. 

1. Not being able to wear sunglasses in the summer, so you end up either permanently squinting or being completely blinded by the sun. 

2. Walking inside when it's cold outside and the warm air making the lenses steam up. 

3. Taking a sip from a cup of tea or any hot drink, again, making the lenses steam up.

4. Not being able to lie on your side with glasses on. 

5. The hassle of taking contact lenses in and out.

6. They're never clean - you take them off, you clean them, you put them back on and suddenly they're covered in dirt again. It's a never ending cycle so you get fed up and just end up wearing them dirty.

7. When they're properly cleaned and you realise that your eyesight hasn't gotten worse, your glasses were just really dirty.

8. Makeup rubbing off your nose because of them. 

9. Losing your glasses and not being able to find them because you need your glasses to see them.

10. When your glasses start to slide down your nose but you're using both hands so you have to find other ways to get them up.

11. Wearing contacts, raising your hand to push your glasses up on your nose and poking yourself before realising you're not wearing glasses.

12. Feeling jealous of people with 20/20 vision - they don't know how lucky they are!

13. Everyone you meet asking 'Can I try on your glasses?'

14. And if you let them it's usually followed by 'Wow you're so blind!'

15. Having to wear 3D glasses over the top of your glasses at the cinema.

16. People asking you how many fingers they're holding up when you're not wearing your glasses, as if you see double or something.

17. Forgetting to take your glasses off before pulling a jumper over your head and getting them squished (this is particularly bad if it's a turtle neck). 

18. The struggle of finding a pair of glasses that you like and that also suit you.

19. Dreading optician appointments in case your prescription has gotten worse. 

20. The relief of taking contacts out and putting glasses back on.

Have you experienced any of these? Are there any more that I've missed? Let me know in the comments!
