Taking Time Out

Hey, so a few days ago my brother I decided to take little stroll not to far from where we live, why I didn't choose to upload this post earlier? Have no idea (lots of things going on) the sun was out and we don't really see much of it so we thought we should make the most of it! So here are some of the pics that I took along the way. Believe it or not if you take the whole fashion and beauty aspect away I'm quite the nature lover but hate camping (strange). I forgot how beautiful it all is being cooped up in my room from day to day. Its so important to just go out and get fresh air, I'm not going lie I was getting a little depressed without the sun but the weather does seem to be looking up which just makes me all the more excited for the very long summer coming up! YAY!

 I would love to hear if any of you are going on any cool summer holidays anywhere or even if you have any interesting summer plans, please feel free to leave any comments or requests. :)

Tumblr: #1

Hey, whilst on a study break I decided to do a bit of blogging just to keep updated ya know.. and because I'm so in love with Tumblr I've decided that every week I am going to upload a collage of my most recent reblogs. I think that it will be cool to share some of my favourite pics with you and I also think that some these pics can kind of class as my weekly wishlist items and I say "weekly" because I add new things to the list almost everyday.

Life Update!

So, I have been really busy lately with school, not cool! (ayy that rhymed). I am currently on study leave about to write my final GCSE exams.. so I have just been really concentrating on that for now which is probably why I have not been blogging frequently enough but looking on the brighter side, I do have a super long summer holiday coming up which I am crazy, stupid, insanely excited about and I plan on uploading posts every other day because I will have a lot of time on my hands.. and I might even do a bit of vlogging and upload that on here!!! Can't wait!!

Don't forget to follow on my other addictions, because I am on there quite often!

April Favourites 2013!

I don't really know whether its a bit late to be doing April Favourites but I have really been loving a few products for the month of April and I feel very eager to share them with you, so here they are!

Witch naturally clear facial cleanser
I have been using this cleanser for quite a while now not only for the month of April and I absolutely love it! I have combination skin with and oily T-Zone (annoying) so I tend to avoid cleansers that are cream based because they just make the oiliness of my skin even worse which causes me to break out. This one is great because its foam based and one of the things that I love most about this cleanser is that after I have put my skin through torture with wearing makeup all day, when I wash the makeup off at the end of the day, its takes everything off and leaves nothing behind so you know that you are not clogging your pores it also means that you don't have to use a toner which lets be honest takes way too much effort. You will be able to purchase this in any Boots I would imagine.

Simple purifying cleansing lotion
After I have cleansed my face I use this moisturiser which kind of balances everything out in the sense that the cleanser does the job of drying my skin, making sure that it controls the oil levels and the cleansing lotion makes sure that my skin doesn't get too dry and cause me break out. Same with this product I have been using it for quite a while now and not only for the month of April. The two products work really well together if you are like me and have combination skin with an oily T-Zone I definitely recommend trying these two products out the cleansing is water based as well and Simple products are great because all the ingredients are natural so you know that you are not going to damage your skin with any harsh chemicals, you will be able to purchase this from Boots as well.

di palomo wild fig & grape hand cream
I have been loving this hand cream for the month of April. What I love about this hand cream that its really dry but moisturising at the same time, because most of the time hand creams are too moist and not very absorbent which it just leaves your hands feeling sticky. Before trying this product I was not familiar with the brand at all so I didn't really know what to expect but turned out to be great. One of the things that I love about it as well is that its a really small size so you can just throw in your bag and you are good to go. This product was actually given to me by my mum from this event that she went to, so I'm not too sure where you will be able to get this product, the name does sound a bit foreign but a little browse on the internet won't hurt, its worth it. 
Collection 2000 pressed powder

Love, love, love! I think I might have used this everyday for the month of April which is quite evident because I have hit pan. It is a translucent powder so it doesn't give off any colour which means that it would pretty much work for any complexion. I loved using this after I have applied my foundation and concealer and all that good stuff , it worked great as a setting powder so you don't have to wait too long for your makeup to set, I am one of those people who always forgets to put primer on and only remember after I have applied foundation (so annoying). I can not believe its lasting me this long because I used it so much. You would be able to purchase this from any Boots store. I just hope and pray that they don't choose to discontinue this product.

MAC Paint Pot
I am so in-love with my paint pot! I have it in the shade "quite natural" which is a little bit darker than my skin tone, I use it as a eye shadow base as well as a eye primer; I think it works well for both purposes. I bought this from the MAC counter around January time and only decided to use it for the month of April for some reason and it has been amazing. I am definitely planning to buy another one once this one is used up which I don't think is anytime soon because it looks like one of those products that last you a very long time which I'm not complaining about. If I do get another paint pot, I might get it in a different shade just to try them all out. Definitely recommend! I'm pretty sure you could get this online or at any MAC counter.
Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara
My favourite part when doing my makeup is applying mascara and this mascara has just taken it up a notch. This one is in intensive black because I love my eyelashes being really dark. My favourite thing about this mascara is the wand, it makes it really easy to apply on the inner lashes and the bottom lashes without any smudges. It gives my eyelashes super volume which is a thumbs up for me because I am pretty content with the length of my eyelashes its just that I feel I don't have a lot of them and this mascara does a good job of making them look like I have a lot more. Just like the others you can get this from any Boots.

Bourjois Intuitive liner
This liquid liner is quite interesting to any of the others I have tried because of the unusual applicator but believe it or not it actually makes it a lot more easier to apply because the whole idea behind it is that you create dots along your lash line and then fill them in, which I think is pretty impressive. My favourite thing about this product is that it lasts very long on the eyelid meaning it doesn't really fade away as time goes on because what I have found with liquid liners that I have tried in the past is they fade away as time passes and it would be a bit of hassle trying to apply more on top of that, so if you are looking for a liquid liner that is easy to apply and will last long I think this is your pick.
Price's Scented Candle
I have got this candle in the scent "Sweet Vanilla" and I am so in-love with this. It is such a strongly scented candle and I just light for about 30 minutes and my whole room smells like sweet vanilla. I am all for anything that smells nice! I am definitely thinking about trying these candles in other scents and I think you should to if you are like me and are obsessed with scented candles.
Company UK April Issue
The last item is my absolute favourite magazine! As soon as I saw Emma Stone on the cover I just had to get it, she is such a funny/brilliant actress and don't think anyone can disagree after watching Crazy, Stupid, Love (I think that's what its called) or The Help. This issue was a music issue which is right up my street because I do love my music! One of my favourite things about Company is that they include high street fashion and high fashion looks unlike some other magazines which are either one or the other. Every month I make it my duty to purchase this magazine.
Let me know in the comments if you tried any of these items before? if yes what did you think about it? If you have any other post ideas that you would like me do, fashion or beauty let me know in the comments as well.

OOTD: Yellow / Jaune

Parka Jacket: Newlook
Mustard Yellow Shirt: Next
Plain Black Skinnies: Miss Selfridge
Shoes: Newlook
The Jewels: Topshop/ Newlook

Hey, so yesterday I was out shopping with my beautiful mother who was also kind enough to be my photographer. I put together this very casual outfit which literally took me minutes, no joke. I mean you can't really go wrong with a parka jacket which just to let you know I have worn almost every weekend ever since I got it which was, I think last December. I think what attracted me to it was the leather sleeves, I paired that with a mustard yellow shirt, a pair of black skinnies, Jeffrey Cambell (kinda) look-a-likes and lastly accessorised with my gold jewels  

Let me know what you think? I would love to hear. :)

Tag: Would you rather- beauty edition

So... I am coming at you with a Tag! I thought this tag would be particularly interesting after reading some of the questions, even though some of the questions are pretty much impossible to answer. I'll try my best.

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
I think I would rather lose all my palettes and eyeshadows one of the reasons being because I don't really own that many and I can do without doing my eyes. I'm much more of a lip colour kinda girl.

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
Well...I do love my long hair, so I think I would rather never be able to cut it again and I could always just wear it up all the time which I don't really mind that much because that will just enable me to do really cool different hairstyles and I do think that my hair will get to a certain length and just stop growing.

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
I probably would rather have a pink cheek only because I feel like you have to be a certain skin tone to be able to wear coral, people who are of a pale complexion usually look really gorgeous with coral cheeks. I think pink cheeks would compliment my skin tone a bit better depending on the shade of pink as well.

4. If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Ooooooh difficult question...Even though I absolutely love makeup I would rather spend the money on clothes because makeup does expire and buying makeup for that amount of money means that you have to use it all up within a certain amount of time its usually 6 months, correct me if I'm wrong? and anyway I always feel as if I don't have enough clothes so yeah... definitely clothes!

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Oh my goodness.. they both sound as bad as each other. I think I would rather use eyeliner as lipstick because the thought of using lipstick as eyeliner just doesn't feel or sound right.

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
I can't really make a fair judgement on this one because I have never used any Sephora products. I do wish there was a Sephora where I live but unfortunately there is not and it doesn't help when people who do have a Sephora near them have such amazing reviews on the makeup. BUT I do love my beloved MAC products (favourite brand of makeup) so I would rather only shop at MAC as far as I know.

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip color for the rest of your life?
I would rather only use one eyeshadow colour because I do tend to go quite neutral with my eyes and I think I would prefer to change up my lip colour rather than my eyeshadow colour.

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?I mean.. what even is this question? because either way you are screwed. I'm just going to answer this question based on the weather where I live and say that I would rather wear winter clothes in the summer because some days in the summer tend to be cold but if I chose to go with the summer clothes in winter option I would literally freeze to death and to be quite honest I'm only 16 years of age, too young to die.

 9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
I would definitely rather have bright nails all year round only because I think that nail colour is one thing that you don't really have to bother too much about going through the different seasons and because I think that bright/lighter colours suit me better.

10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
Would rather give up favourite lip product because I don't really have one, it changes all the time. My favourite eye product is my paint pot by MAC and I absolutley love that and would be really difficult for me to give that up!

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Definitely a messy bun type of girl!

12. Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
I would rather never be able to use lipgloss. If you have read my post on the "Avon Nail Varnishes" you would know that I could never be able to live without painted nails that just wouldn't be Lucille Chetty.

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?OMG. I know its absolutely ridiculous but I think that I would sharpie them on everyday, I don't really care about how much of an idiot I would look all I know is that it would look a lot better than not having any eyebrows at all. (eyebrows are really important to me).

14. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
NO. worst question! I would probably choose to live without nail polish. I love makeup too much to live without it and anyway I think I need makeup more than I need nail polish.

Hope you enjoyed this tag, let me know if there are any others that you would like me to do and lastly if you have tried both, MAC and Sephora products which brand of makeup do you prefer? If you could let me know in the comments that will be cool, I would love to hear?
