Skincare Routine

Naming this my 'skincare routine' isn't actually right, as I'm quite bad at sticking to routines and every night is different. I tend to stick with the same cleanser as I've finally found one I'm happy with and that is the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. I use that to take off my make up by applying it to an oval cotton pad and using a circular motion, I gently rub all over my face.



Revolution Favourites

Make Up Revolution has become an ever growing favourite brand of mine that has now joint my make up collection and I'm loving it very much. I have a number of their palettes, liquid lipsticks and brushes.

My first purchase from them was the Ultra Brow - Fair to Medium palette and if I'm honest, I do love it, but.. I've only used it twice since buying it. I should use it more, but I struggle with filling my brows in with powders and the cream colours in the palette aren't perfect.

Now, the other three palettes I do use every time I do my make up.

I have the Ultra Contour Palette, the Blush Palette All About Cream and a highlight palette that I can't find on their website, so I can only assume that you can no longer buy it (which is a shame because it is amazing!).



Top 5 Nail Colours


I rarely ever paint my nails, but if I do I can guarantee it'll be one of these colours. I mean come on, how nice are they. Their nothing fancy, I know, their just simply from Next at £4 each or buy three for the price of two. There are tons of different colours, glitters and effects available, I will probably buy some more soon.

ASOS Haul

Yes, another Asos haul lovelies (but this time it's only one item).

So I ordered this on March 1st and I do realise that was only two days after my previous order, but I changed my mind on this item and it had 20% off, so really it was a no brainer and I just had to purchase it. I had been eyeing up this piece for months and when I mentioned to my mum that it had money off, she was the one who pushed me into buying it.

I was unsure on it before because of the length and being only 5'3" I didn't want it being too long and risk it making me look even shorter than I am. But it is perfect and I'm so chuffed that I changed my mind. Yet again, Cheap Monday have won my heart with little number and I will be wearing it as often as I can when Summer comes.

My only problem with this is what to wear with it, like what shoes does one wear with a mid length dyed denim sleeveless dress? I'm thinking more on the lines of my black double strap Birkenstock sandals. I need some help with this one lovelies.

ASOS Haul

So I ordered some stuff from Asos on February 28th and it came the next day (yes I have the premier unlimited next day delivery for a whole year, that costs just £9.95). It wasn't a big order but I was still excited for it to arrive.

The contents of this parcel included two Cheap Monday t-shirts (as shown below) and a three pack of Calvin Klein bikini briefs, which are super comfy. I highly recommend Calvin Klein's! £38 for three pairs, what more could you ask for.
The grey t-shirt shown on the right is part of Cheap Monday's new collection and I fell completely in love with it, it's priced at £30. It also comes as a dress, but is a kind of charcoal grey colour. The blush pink t-shirt I believe is a sale item, as it is from a previous collection also by Cheap Monday. But because it is such a lovely colour, I had to purchase it and it was only £18! Usually my colour selection is just black, white or grey, but it can't hurt to own a little bit of pink.

I bought them both in a 'small' which is a UK 10 and they fit perfectly. Slightly oversized, as I tend to be either an 8 or 10 in t-shirts, but oversized didn't hurt no body. If you follow me on instagram, you'll probably see a lot more of these in the near future as the weather gets warmer.

Remember lovelies, if you have an NUS card you can get 10% off your purchases at Asos (not including sale) and sometimes they do offers where students can get extra money off!
