What I Got For Christmas 2017


Hi! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas, I cannot believe that it is over already, it has gone so fast!! I always get sad when Christmas and New Year is over because it is one of my favourite times of the year. Christmas hauls and 'What I got for Christmas' posts are one of my favourite posts to read and watch around this time of year and I absolutely love reading everyones posts about what they received. It is a shame though that these posts need to have a disclaimer - I am in no way bragging about anything that I have received. I love sharing all of things that I got and I hope that it inspires other people if they might be stuck for gift ideas throughout the year. I haven't included every single thing that I got for Christmas and I would be here all day showing you all of the funny little gifts that I got that I love. I appreciate every single thing that I got. This is my first year doing this post as last year I was a little scared to do it as I was new to blogging and was not sure how it would go down. I also want to say that my parents are separated so I do get presents from both my mum and my dad and step family, so that is the reason why it seems like I get a lot! I thought I would also include who got me what as they all deserve credit for the amazing gifts. 


My MAC Lipstick Collection 2017


I have to be honest, MAC lipsticks hold a little special place in my heart as they were the first 'proper' lipsticks that I owned, I felt like such a grown up when I bought my first MAC lipstick. I have noticed that recently the prices of these lipsticks have slowly started to creep up, however they're still in the middle of high street and high end prices. I also remember that people thought these lipsticks were the be-all and end-all of the lipstick word and I have to admit that unfortunately that isn't true, there are so many more affordable and sometimes even better lipsticks out there. However, there is something about MAC that always seems to draw me back in.


Sunshine Blogger Award



Hi lovelies! I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award, so todays post will be answering those questions. Thank you so much to Olivia Charlotte from oliviacharlottesite.wordpress.com for nominating me, if you haven't seen her post then check it out here. This award is for bloggers that are inspiring, creative and positive so I feel so lucky and thankful to have been nominated for this award, so lets get on to the questions. 

The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog.
  • Answer the questions asked by the blogger who nominated them,
  • Nominate other blogs and give them new questions to answer.
  • Notify your nominees and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post.

Olivia's Questions:
        1.Where do you get your positivity from?   
    I would have to say my mum, she has always been a positive person and taught me to always look for the positive in things. 

        2. What is your favourite makeup item?
    Has to be highlighter. I never used to like it before but once I found one that was perfect for my skin tone, I was in love!! I have so many highlighters it's bad lol!

       3. Who, out of everyone who’s ever lived, would you most like to have a chat with?
    This is such a tough question, I had to spend a whole night thinking about it and honestly, I couldn't come up with an answer. There are many people I would like to have a chat with, especially Sigmund Freud as I study psychology and he is a popular psychologist. I would like to talk to him about how psychology has developed in the modern day and age. 

      4. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
    My favourite thing about blogging has to be all of the lovely fellow bloggers that I have met. The whole blogging community is fantastic and everyone is so supportive of each other.

      5. What is your favourite makeup look?
    I would have to say something bronze/gold as that is always a winner with me. I always find that those colours suit me best and you can create the look all year round. However, I also love the autumn colours such as red, oranges and burgandy so that is a tough one.

      6. What would be your dream place to live?
    I would love to live by the beach as I love the sound of the sea. I would also say a city as i'm a city girl at heart so a combination of the two would be good.

      7. Is there anything you don't like/want to improve about your blog?
    Yes, there is. I started my blog only wanting to write about beauty but now I have enjoyed writing about lifestyle posts, such as university, trips and days outs. So I would like to try and write more of those posts so my blog isn't just beauty related.

      8. What's your opinion on glitter makeup?
    I think glitter makeup is awesome, but it just isn't for me. I would just end up making a complete mess and ruining my makeup haha! But I love seeing pictures of people with glitter makeup and I have to admit that I do get jealous of their skills. 

      9. Do you have a favourite YouTuber?
    I like a lot of YouTubers. I watch YouTube religiously and I have to admit that I got most of my makeup skills from watching videos. I love Casey Holmes as she suffers from rosacea and has sensitive skin, so I love watching her videos because we have the same skin type and she loves reviewing drugstore makeup which makes it a little easier on my bank account haha!

      10. What can cheer you up after a bad day?
    Definitely coming home, having a cup of tea and a chat with my mum. I also love getting into a bath and just relaxing and trying to forget about the rubbish day I had.   


    My questions:
    1. What is your favourite thing about autumn/fall?
    2. What inspired you to start blogging?
    3. What is your biggest pet peeve?
    4. What was the last book you read and what was it about?
    5. Is there a food you could not live without?
    6. What gives you your inspiration for blog posts?
    7. What is one beauty product you cannot live without?
    8. Where is your favourite place to visit in the world?
    9. Which one of your personality traits do you wish others had also?

    Lottie London Shimmer Squad Highlighter Palette | Review & Swatches


    You know when you just find that one thing that is so affordable and amazing that you think 'why didn't I try this out sooner and how the hell don't more people know about this?' That's exactly what I thought when I was watching one of Casey Holmes' videos where she tried out some Lottie London makeup. One of the things she tried out in that video was this Lottie London Shimmer Squad highlighting palette and it looked absolutely amazing on her so I thought I would try it out for myself. I went online to the Superdrug website because I knew that my store didn't sell that much Lottie London makeup and I didn't want to take a trip into town to not be able to find it, also, ordering online was soo much easier lol! The colours looked gorgeous and I could not wait for my package to come in the mail, so let's get on into the review.


    10 Things That I've Learnt Since Being At University.


    I am about to head into my third year of university in just a few weeks time and I thought it would be a good idea to write a post about the things I have learnt since being at uni. I've definitely had some ups and downs and I would have loved to read a blog post about uni life before I started.
