The Real Review: Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara

Image
Day or Night, Lunch or Dinner mascara is  worn by people all over the world for varying events or occasions. Mascara has the ability to polish up a natural make-up look or just brighten up tiered eyes but regardless, it's worn everyday by thousands upon thousands. 
     Personally, previous to my purchase of my maybelline mega plush mascara, I didn't differentiate between the £2.00 mascaras from the £15.00. They all worked  the same to me, lengthening and coating my lashes in my chosen colour, therefore I never stuck to a set make of mascara and regularly changed what I used.          Although upon finding this product   I have found my new holy grail mascara, it didn't just lengthen my lashes but they looked completely extended and they weren't just coated in product they were glossy and considerably multiplied in volume. My assumptions of mascaras all being the same where sent into an oblivion, along side the rest of my incorrect thoughts.        Still at a reasonable £…

Weekend Fun: Night Out Essential

Image
The weekend has arrived, so dust off your party heels and find that drop dead gorgeous dress, because it's time to go dancing and party it up! Going out on a night can be the highlight of your week, that's why it's important you take all your essentials for a full proof evening. 
               Every girl has a different set essential to the next, so i'm going to share my top four and  I hope helps you find yours and gives you cause for the perfect night with friends or whoever you're spending your weekend with. 
1. My phone  In this day in age, I think it would be unusual not to take your phone out with you. As for me I find it my priority on a night out because if my perfect night out turns into a bit of mess and a not-so-prefect night descends upon on me, I like to know my trusty phone is their to save the day whether it's because I need to bail, order a taxi or help a friend in need, I always have it. 
2. Money  Along side the constant of my phone, the only othe…

Whimsical Wednesday: Creative Writing

#1

The sun blazed down, and I felt the first drop of sweat roll down my cheek staining my shield of make-up. I knew as soon as I stepped off plane, the Los Angles humidity and I weren't going to get along as well as I'd hoped.  I patted my face with urgency, doing my best to work with what I had, before reaching the terminal building where my suitcase held the keys to my perfection. As I walked past the plane I had just given the best side of 12 hours of my life to, I sighed in relief, mainly out of exhaustion but secretly I knew, this is where it should all begin, at least I hope...   Reaching the building my fingers fumbled in my over sized Marc Jacobs bag searching for my passport in the jungle of lipsticks and magazines, when instead of walking upon the tired grey carpet I was hurtling head first into the recycling bin metres away and I knew I couldn't  stop. It was inevitable. I was going to land like a giant sack of potatoes with my sophisticated fa├žade lost with just …

Eenie Meenie Miney..... Mates

Friends & Friendship
Mates, pals, friends, chums or buddies, whatever you call them, we all have them. Whether we just have one close friend who's always there or you have a ginormous group of them, nine times out of ten you'll if they're good, you can count on them in your times of need.  Good friends are like stars you don't always need to see them to know they're always there, that's why it's so important to pick them carefully. They have the potential to boost your self esteem, so you feel like you could walk on water yet picking the wrong ones can drown you in negativity. So be wise, be informed and fish out the good from the mean and nasty.  Whether you're just chilling in the house and having drinks and a chat or going out and about for food and a trip, there always their, giving you memories for forever!    Personally I lie on side of friendship groups where I have a few good friends instead a ginormous group. As I write this blog post the group…

Summer reading! Chick Fiction!

Summer reads!
I don't know about you, but personally I love to read. However through my life I've come to discover that this is not the case for everyone. So if your not an avid reader, maybe this post isn't for you, but why not just give it a read and see if it inspires you, this summer. Throughout the year I read a selection books, depending on how much time I have left juggling college work along side other things. Usually if i'm  unable to fit them in, I mange to fit in at least two through the summer months when there is no college and I have lighter load of work!  So what do I read? You may ask. Well, personally for me I enjoy quite a various selection of books. Although during the summer months I have tendency to steer more towards the girly chick-fiction thats out there, books such the as the Lauren Conrad trilogies.  I have read  both sets of LC trilogies now, and found them easy reads they're very light hearted and if you enjoyed the Hills reality tv program…

The Real Reveiw: Tangle Teezer

The real review:  Tangele Teezer
Did you see everyone going wild for it? No? Well I did. Just a while back I heard many beauty gurus, friends and family talking about these 'tangle teezer' brushes. Being the girl that I am i decided to look further into it to see if they where really worth the money. While I did my research I found out this .....Tangle teezers are "Innovatively designed to allow a pain free hair brushing experience without tugging and pulling on wet hair, whether it's thick, wavy, straight or normal. " Or something very similar in all the places I looked. Although I've known about the tangle teezer for several months now, it's not up until now that I decided I would give one a try.   They cought my eye when I went on the aeroplane on my summer travels and found it in the in flight magazine for £12, and I decided that I would like to give it a try and see if it really lived up to my high expectations due to my  research.  Admittedly, I won'…

Positive Thoughts!

Positive Thoughts!
A new week. What does the really mean? You could look at that phrase as pessimist and say, long days commuting to work, house work, arguments and working with colleges that you haven't liked since you started the firm. Then again, on the other hand, you can look at the 'a new week' as an optimist,  thinking, a fresh slate, new memories, time to conquer new challenges, spend time with your family and come one step closer to your dream.  Doing the same repetitive routine gets boring and almost depressing sometimes, especially if you been doing the same thing for years of your life! So why not take this Monday to make a change? Don't go wild and quit your job of skive school just change up your routine and live a little more.  Change the radio station or get a cd,  choose a song that when you here it, it makes you confident and really makes you want to strive for the day head to make things happen. This simple step can make your day a hell of a lot better …

Shopping Abroad: Portugal Edition

Saver Saturday  Shopping Abroad:Portugal Edition

Travelling the world, New York, Paris, Milan you'd think you be able to pick up the best fashion and beauty purchases considering they're fashion capital of the world, right? But newsflash, you've just found out none of them are on the cards for you this summer, and your parents have just told you your going elsewhere. Maybe just as good but just not as quite as fashion forward... Or maybe you've found your budget won't quite stretch that far this year so as lone roamer or couple your going to tighten the purse strings and go somewhere a little bit more local?  Regardless of where your travelling this summer, whether it's to the campsite one hour down the road or to Hawaii a hundred miles away, think savy, think beauty, think adventure!  Travelling to Portugal this summer, a place not considered for it's haute couture but for it's Lushes sea breezes and bikini weather, I had my hunting goggles on for any fash…
