Now for the Questions

1. What inspires you to blog?
Probably my love for fashion, beauty and writing. I've always loved those things and then when I started reading beauty blogs I thought it combines all the things I love so thought I'd give it a go!


2. Who is your inspiration?

Hmmm, a lot of other Youtubers and bloggers, I was really into all of that just before I began this blog. 


3. Can you speak another language?
I can speak quite a bit of Spanish. I used to speak French and I knew a bit of German and Italian. 


4. Is there a principle/rule you live your life by?

Oooh, I think I try to live my life by don't let anything hold you back. 


5. What is your weakness?
My weakness I would say can be sense of humour. I have quite a sarcastic sense of humour so sometimes I say things that can come out as quite harsh, but I NEVER mean it. 


6. Besides blogging, what do you to with your spare time?

I read, I'm a geek. 


7. What is your biggest achievement?

I haven't really had any major achievements in my life yet but I think in year 6 when I went on a leavers trip with my year. It was an adventure holiday and I suprised myself at what I was capable of doing, abseiling off a 40ft wall, tight rope walking, quad biking, leap of faith.  I'm not amazing with heights so I was quite proud of myself when I came back. 


8. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
AUSTRALIA!!! It looks amazing!!


9. What is your dream job?
To be a journalist or to work in a publishing house. 


10. What is currently your favourite song?

I have so many, I'd say my favourite at the moment is Suede, Beautiful Ones. I saw this live and the song just brings back memories.

What I got for Christmas!

Hellooo! 

Christmas is over! :( Sorry this post is quite late but better late than ever. I thought that today I'd show you all of the lovely gifts that I received. Just to point out, I am in no way trying to brag, I love this kind of post so I thought I'd show you! Hope you enjoy!


First lot of stuff is the beauty items! I got the Soap & Glory 'The Yule Monty' set, which is incredible expect to see reviews on some of the stuff coming soon! I got a Lip Smacker set. They all smell yummy and the taste of them is delicious! I got another pot of my Body Shop moisturizer. I got the 'Samy Fat Hair' thickening shampoo which I tried today - expect a review soon. I then got 2 things from Anatomicals, I got the 'Zap, zap, zap, gets that chap, spot stick which I'm really liking. I then got the lipgloss in milkshake flavour which tastes good! And lastly I got a mirror with my name on, this will probably be going into a bag. 


For clothes I got some high waisted shorts from New Look and the blue fluffy jumper. The burgandy tights next to them are also New Look. From George @ Asda I got the teal jumper. And from F&F I got the grey jumper. I'm planning to wear that as a dress with thick tights though. And lastly I got some birdy pyjama's also from New Look.

And finally, my main present was this!!!!

Toni and Guy Hair Waver



Hey guys! 

Today I am back with a review of the toni and guy hair waver I got for christmas and oh my gosh I absolutely love it!!

The waver looks quite strange when you first take it out the box, but once you get the hang of it, it's amazing!

I tend to use this on quite a low heat setting but I find that it lasts for quite a while even on my thin hair.

The waver creates quite a natural wave which I really like and it's quite flattering. I was worried that this was going to fry my hair but thankfully it hasn't and it is still in pretty good condition.

I seriously love this and cannot recommend it enough. I really think you should try it, it's really worth it in my opinion. It hasn't left my hair since Christmas! 

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! 

Christmas Eve Outfit

Christmas Eve Outfit



Christmas sweater, £19 / Red legging, £25 / Black fairisle knit slipper boots, £18

Hey guys!

I have finally worked out how to use Polyvore in conjunction to Blogger and have created this incredibly festive outfit. Personally, I would wear this on Xmas Eve to slouch around the house in - it would get me in the Christmas spirit!


Today, I am wearing something extremely similar! Hope you have a fandabedozie Christmas!




Life/ Christmas Update

Hey everyone!

I hope you are all well! I am SERIOUSLY excited because... it's only 3 days, 8 hours, 34 minutes and 37 seconds, 36, 35, 34, ok you get the idea till CHRISTMAS! But today I thought that I would a do a small life update/ what I'm doing for Christmas!

Yesterday, I broke up from school for Christmas and the best part is that I don't have any homework! I haven't had that for 3 years, I can have a nice, long rest! YAY! 

For Christmas my nan and uncle are coming round for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day which should be good. I can't wait for Christmas!!!

Anyway, that's it for my quick life/ Christmas life update! 

What's been happening in your life recently? What are you doing for Christmas?

What's on my Face? #1

Hello!

I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted on here!! Eeek! Sorry! Anyway, here's a post to make up for it! :)

Well, yesterday (which was actually last week) I went out on a Saturday! Woah, I'm such a party animal and I thought I'd show what I wore on my face! Just 'cause I thought y'know, you might be interested.

Well, on my eyes I wore the Fabulous Gel Eyeliner from Miss Sporty, I know I gave this a bad review a couple of posts back, but, it's not as bad as I thought. You do have to pack quite a bit onto a brush to get a decent colour pay off but I can work with it and seen as it's the only gel eyeliner I have I'm gonna have to. I then used my ridiculously long named mascara, also by Miss Sporty. And finally lined my bottom waterline with the ColourTrend eyeliner in Black Attract. 


On my face I put the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer under my eyes. Over that I put a sample YSL foundation on. I do this because the Collection concealer is too orange for my face so this just stops me looking orange. I then covered up some blemishes with my Rimmel Stay Matte foundation. Then finally I powdered with my Miss Sporty powder. 


On my lips I put the Calvin Klein delicious luxury lipstick on. This is the shade Cosmopolitan. I put this on rather sparingly as it's very pigmented and finally I put the L'Oreal Glam Shine Miss Candy lipgloss on in Bubble Pink. 

And finally, we have the finished look! Hope you like it! ;)

Very typical blogger pose! ;)

Christmas Gift Guide: Under £10

Christmas Gift Guide: Under £10


Hey Guys!


Today I thought I would do a super quick Christmas gift guide for under £10!

Soap and Glory do loads of great sets and this is the Bright and Bubbly set, this £10 and includes 4 minis: Clean On Me shower gel, The Righteous Butter, Scrub of Your Life and Handfood! What a great set?! I'd love to receive this! - link

Next is this super cute Barry M nail polish set, it contains 3 festive glitters; a red, a black and white. - link

Next is the Golden Wonder bath bomb from Lush, I think this is about £3.50 and it would be a nice stocking filler or a present for someone you don't know that well. - link Also from Lush, the cupcake face mask. I think it smells of chocolate and it supposed to be good for spotty skin. - link

The last 2 things are from Prezzy Box which have some SERIOUSLY cool stuff, but I picked out this cute little shower cap and sponge with body wash that look like toast and jam - it looks so good. I think this would be perfect for someone who likes quite quirky things. Toast and Jam link. Shower cap - link

I really like all of this and personally would be incredibly happy to receive any of this stuff! :))



New Hair!!

Just a super duper quick post to say I've had my hair done! What do ya think? I personally love it! It looks much more alive! 

Please excuse the weird pose/face, but this photo shows the hair best! ;)

Review: Freederm Gel

Hello guys!

Today I am going to be raving to you about this wonder product that has seriously helped by spotty, teenage skin - darn those teenage hormones!!

Since the end of September I seemed to be getting growths coming out of my face, bit gross, but this has practically diminished those! I've been using it since late September and have noticed a huge difference in my skin! 

Every time I feel a spot coming on I put this on overnight and by the next morning any traces of that spot are practically gone. 

It comes out in a translucent gel and it works by drying up the spot. In the morning it does make the skin look flaky and dry but this is actually the remainder of the gel so you can just wash it off.

The reason it works is because of the active ingredient nicotinamide which is 4% of it. If you prefer to get rid of spots naturally then don't try this, but for me, I don't care how I get rid of a spot as long as it works!

If the spot hasn't gone in one night keep applying it until it's gone, I've had some monster pimples and within 2 days there has been barely any traces of it left!

I love this stuff and think I will continue to repurchase, it does the job and it just works - love, love, love!

PS: Is there anything you would like to see related to Christmas??



Review: Miss Sporty Gel Eyeliner

bad
Hello guys!

Today I'm here to review a disappointing product namely the 'Fabulous Gel Eyeliner + Highlighter' from Miss Sporty. I won this in a Halloween Hamper and I'm glad I didn't pay for it!

As you can see from the barely there swatches the pigment practically doesn't exist. The highlight shade is ok, but the black is a washed out grey. Not impressed at all. 

Overall, I just wouldn't recommend this, there's no pigment at all. I hate doing negative reviews but it has to be done - there are some dud products out there. 

Oh and a complete tangent, what Christmas blog posts would you like to see??
