Fashion wish list #2


Before I start this post I'd like to apologise that I haven't posted in such a long time, I had a really important English controlled assessment and I'm actually on half term at the moment -yay for my school having 2 weeks off instead of 1- and although this should give me more time to blog more, I've been so busy! And when I did get some time, my laptop completely died. Anyway, so now I am writing this on my iPad so I don't really know how it'll go but I'll try my best πŸ˜„

Onto the wishlist: 

(Top left) Tall Black Coated Disco Pants - New Look - £22.99

Yes, that's right,you have found somebody who does not yet own a pair of disco pants *hangs head in shame*. But I really do want a pair and eventually I will take the plunge and buy em, however I do not have £70 to spend on an original pair so I thought the new look cop offs would do nicely. I also went for the tall ones as I find that I have a problem with the length of the legs in new look trousers.

(Top right) Combined Checkered T-shirt with Collar - Zara - £19.99

I really like this tartan t shirt, if you hadn't noticed that tartan is in at the moment then I don't know where you have been and I think this collared top of perfect for autumn time, especially as it is quite dark but with some red which I always see as a really autumnal colour

(Bottom Left) Floral Print Sweatshirt - Zara - £25.99

If there's one thing I love about autumn it's wearing jumpers like this (or sweaters, sweatshirts, I never really know what to call them) I just think they are super comfy and can be really casual or more dressed up and they are warm for if it's a little bit cold but not too hot because you never know what the weather will be like in autumn! I really love the floral pattern on this one in particular.

(Bottom Right) You Can't Sit With Us T-Shirt Mean Girls - EBay - £6.99

I found this tshirt on a blog where the blogger had written "and if you don't understand it, when then you're just as dumb as Karen" which made me smile but unfortunately I cannot remember which blog it        

(Top Left) Black Tartan Cap Sleeve Shift Dress - New Look - £22.99

I don't own any dresses in this style but I do really like it and I think that the tartan print is very different and suits the style of the dress, I love this!

(Top Right) Cut Out Chunky Biker Shoes - EBay - £24.99

I really love cut out boots and I've wanted a pair for a while but I did originally have my eye on a pair with a bigger heel which I love too but then I started thinking that I don't actually have a pair of not high heeled ankle boots - although I'm not sure id use the word flat to describe these - and I know that I would get much more opportunity to wear lower heeled ones which is why these are in my wishlist rather than higher ones.

(Bottom Left) PVC Clear Raincoat - EBay - £14.50

I love that you can still see any outfit through these raincoats and the whole idea of it is amazing I think

(Bottom Right) Knitted Marbel Woven Jumper - Topshop - £38

Yet another thing I love to wear in the colder months, knitted jumpers. I like that this one has contrasted sleeves to the middle and the pattern is so colourful and mesmerising 

(Top Left) Moto Bleach Denim Dungarees - Topshop - £18 (in sale) £38 (not in sale) 

These May look somewhat summery for this time of year but I think with tights and a long coat these will look lovely Even on colder days πŸ˜€

(Top Right) 2 Pack Burgundy and Monochrome Floral Peplum Tops - New Look - £17.99

I love peplum tops especially with leggings I think think they are really easy to wear and can be smart or casual depending on how you dress them up and I think both of these are perfect for autumn

(Bottom Left) Annie Oversized Vintage Jumper - Boohoo - £15

Another knitted jumper, i love being comfy and this jumper looks so cosy and warm and I also really like the colour of it πŸ˜€

(Bottom Right) Nike Blazer Mid Trainers - Nike - £70

Whilst I am aware that I will probably never get these shoes because they are extremely overpriced I thought I should include them as I do really like them and they look really comfortable And like they would go with nearly everything πŸ˜€

So that's it for my fashion wishlist, I hope you liked it πŸ˜€

My Most Used Makeup Collection & Storage

Hey :)
So today I am going to be showing you how I store my 'everyday' makeup. Obviously I do not use all of this makeup everyday (or I'd be CAKED!) but this is just what I use most then I have a big drawer which I keep everything else in. I am aware that I don't have that much makeup compared to many people but I like what I have and to me it's a big collection!
Sorry for the rather cluttered looking drawers!
Just incase you were wondering, I don't keep a bottle of Jack Daniels by my bed ;) No, that is a cute little bottle which I keep hair grips in, also here is a little Love ETC Solid Perfume from Body Shop, a tiny perfume from Next, a couple of Ecotools brushed and some really random brushed :)
Let's just a take a minute for possibly the coolest makeup brush pot in the world! It is made from this old china cheese pot thing and I decorated it with PVA glue and Marvel wrapping paper from primark :) I have a range of random brushes, the black ones are from a set I got on Amazon for about £6-8, the stippling brush is from Ebay and was around £2, the comb is from Body Shop, Backcombing Brush from Primark, Ecotools Foundation Brush, Random Foundation Brush
This is the box I keep foundations, mascaras, concealers and things which wont fit in the little drawers underneath in! The box is a cardboard one from Hobby Craft I think covered in a really cool New York Wallpaper which I got a sample of from Homebase :)
So here's what I keep in that box:
Garnier Ambre Solaire Face and Neck Sun cream
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
Collection Lasting Perfection Foundation
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
Revlon Colorstay Foundation
Collection Cover and Go Foundation
Body Shop Matte It Primer
I love keeping makeup items in little tealight holders, I just think its a great way to store them, they look nice and don't take up too much space, everything is also really easy to find which it can't always be if they are lying down.
This is where I keep my concealers, because I'm a slight concealer freak (dark circles, need I say more!) and I also have an eye primer in there too :)
In here there is:
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
Clinique Airbrush Concealer
NYC Smooth Skin Concealer
Maybelline Mineral Concealer
L'Oreal True Match Concealer
Vivo Radiant Boost Highlighter
W7 Eye Primer
Another tealight holder :)
In this one I keep mascaras, eyeliners and an eyebrow pencil:
L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara
2True Flash Eyes Mascara
Collection 2000 Skylash Mascara
L'Oreal Superliner Sponge Tipped Eyeliner
Primark Liquid Eyeliner
Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencil
I also keep my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and my 2True All natural Matte Bronzer in here because they wont fit in the drawers :)
Lastly, I keep My eyelash curlers from Primark in there, Vivo Eyeshadow Palette in Dreamy and Ebay Concealer Palette
Now onto the cute little drawers from Poundland! As soon as I saw them, I loved them so much, they are SO cute and perfect for storing makeup and they were only £1!!!
In the top drawer, I keep highlighters,  Eyeshadows and lipsticks/balms :)
Calvin Klein Crème Eyeshadow in Bare Silk (Browbone Highlighting)
Chit Chat Highlighter
Clinique Up lighting Illuminator
Tesco Eyeshadow in Shade 2
Constance Carroll Eyeshadow in Taupe (Left) Beige (Right)
NYC Metro Quartet in Best of Broadway
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Iced Caramel
Collection Lasting Perfection Lipstick in Satin Bow
Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch (Left) and Peach Kiss (Right)
Revlon Lip liner
Onto the bottom drawer where I keep blusher, bronzer and powder
MUA Blusher in Cupcake
Rimmel Mono Blushers in Smoked Oyster (Left) and Santa Rose (Right)
MUA Blush Perfection Cream Blusher in Dolly
W7 The Bronzer Matte Compact
Constance Carroll Silk Finishing Powder
So that is my collection of makeup which I use most and keep on top of my drawers :)
Here is a few random pictures of inside my makeup drawer:
Is there anything you'd like reviewing/ a look done with?

Fragrance Direct Haul

Hey there everyone :)

Firstly, I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to you, today my profile on Bloglovin' hit the 50 followers mark! Now I know that compared to some people, well, most people, that is hardly anything but for me this is amazing and I am so grateful! I am planning on doing a giveaway soon so please just bare with and keep your eyes peeled :)

Now onto the post :)

Right, I have wanted to order from fragrance direct for a while now so at the start of this month I did it, if you haven't heard of fragrance direct before I would definitely check it out (here!) but basically it is a website which sells discounted and even some discontinued beauty and fragrance goods and the prices are SO cheap and its amazing. The only thing is, their stock levels change every day, which is brilliant if you're waiting for something, but not so brilliant if you want to order something and it suddenly goes out of stock!

And here's what I bought! I got these 14 things for £27!!!!!!! The postage is only £1.95 and it all comes very quickly (I think these took just under a week) especially for the price and everything was nicely in a box with some of those little air bag things, luckily, nothing was broken!

Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Ivory - £7.95
The bottle for this foundation is surprisingly small but apparently there is the normal 30ml which you get in a foundation and it was about £5 less than it is in Boots or Superdrug!
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in 100 Ivory - £3.99
This was also much smaller than in the shops so I'm pleased with that! Although considering they are both called 'Ivory' these two look VERY different...
NYC Smooth Skin Liquid Concealer in Light - £0.99p
I got this because I am FOREVER on the hunt for a perfect, cheap concealer which will cover up my HORRIFIC dark circles
W7 Prime Magic Eye Primer - £1.99
I've had my eye on this eye primer for a while now, because I've always wanted to try one to see if they really do make my eyeshadow last longer...
W7 The Bronzer Matte Compact - £1.50
I much prefer matte bronzers as the thought of a shimmery face scares me and also I can use it for contouring as well which means its 2 in 1 :) Also, I love that this bronzer has absolutely no trace of any orange in it which is great because nobody wants to be orange! (well.....)
Constance Carroll Silk Finishing Powder in Barely There - £0.99p
I think I got this because it's name is 'finishing powder', that makes me feel as though it will se my makeup better and make it last longer so I'm looking forward to trying this and seeing if my theory works
NYC Metro Quartet in Best of Broadway - £0.99p
I thought that this eyeshadow quad looked so cute and compact and perfect for travelling with, especially as it has all of the lovely natural colours I would normally wear, I also really love that it has the little overlay with where to put each eyeshadow too.
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in 625 Iced Caramel - £1.99
I think it's amazing that these lipsticks are only £1.99! Although, I must say I was a little bit disappointed when I opened this because it looks a bit orangey brown but when I put it on it looks really nice, like a deep red kind of colour so I am pleased I chose this one :)
Bourjois UNE Skin Glow Pencil - £1.99
I was drawn to this because I thought it could be used in the waterline to brighten my eyes so I am also looking forward to trying this :)
Constance Carroll Mono Eyeshadow in (Left) Beige (Right) Taupe - 45p each
I then got these 2 Constance Carroll Eyeshadows for 45p each, that's right, you saw it right, 45p!!!!!
Taupe - this is a beautiful browny nudey purple toned colour (I am really bad at describing colours incase you didn't already guess!) which I really like
Beige - this is a whitey gold colour which looks lovely all over the lid or just in the inner corner, what I really like about it is that it's not too glittery its just nicely shimmery :)
I did also get 2 Revlon nail polishes (for 99p each!) in classy - a beautiful pink colour and Minted - self explanatory ;) and I also got an Essie nail polish (for £1.99!) in Fear and Desire - a bright orange! But I forgot to photograph them, sorry!
What have you been buying lately?

Bex's 11 Questions:
1. If you were stuck on an deserted island what 3 beauty items would you take with you?
This is such a tough one, to be honest, if I was alone and stuck, I probably wouldn't bother wearing makeup, but I think I would definitely take cleanser because i'm guessing sleeping outside wouldn't be good for my skin. The other too would probably be body wash and shampoo because I would rather be nice and clean than have makeup on, especially if I was on my own.
2. What is your favourite movie and why?
I don't really have a favourite movie, I really like Forrest Gump because its really cute and I also like Disney and Pixar Films :)
3. If you could swap lives with any celebrity for a day who would it be?
Probably Kendall or Kylie Jenner because they are beautiful and I love them.

My obsessive for Makeup inspired me, and I wanted to be able to do reviews and things, mainly because I love reading blogs

A pediatrician

There are literally so many brands I like, maybe Rimmel, or Collection, or Maybelline?

Versatile Blogger Nomination


WOW! I haven't been blogging very long and don't have a great deal of followers but today I was kindly nominated by Bex from Bexelle Beauty - her blog is so lovely and if you haven't checked it out already you should definitely go there *after reading his post*.

I am so happy with being nominated for this so a massive THANK YOU to Bex.

My Nominations:
1. Bex from Bexelle Beauty
2. Alice Evans from There's Something about Alice
3. Libby from Life of Libby
5. Terri from C0yoteugly
I read a lot of blogs, but it is clear that many people with hundreds and thousands of followers aren't really going to take notice of me telling them I've nominated them for this award, so I chose these 5 people, I love all of their blogs and they are all very deserving :)
7 'Interesting' facts about me
I wouldn't exactly call myself 'interesting' and I am also only 14 years old so I have a pretty boring life and I haven't really done much yet but here goes:
1. I come from Romford in Essex (but no, I don't speak like the typical 'Essex girl')
2. When I am older, I want to be a Doctor, a paediatrician to be precise :)
3. I don't like fruit, except for bananas (sometimes) and raisins, but other than that, I eat any food
4. My favourite number is 5, because I was born on the 5th of May (the 5th month)
5. I want to do a lot of travelling, but the one place which I most want to visit is Australia
6. To get to school in the morning, I have to get a lift to the train station, get two trains and then walk, that is what I'd call COMMITED
7. I have a miniature schnauzer called Nina
That is everything :) Good luck to all of my nominations <3
Bye <3
