Huge Clothing and Beauty Haul ✿ 

Hey guys! Recently I have been doing some shopping… and it turned out to be quite a lot of shopping, and what do you do when you buy loads of stuff? A haul!!! As you will probably be able to tell there is a very clear theme of monochrome clothing, but black and white goes with everything so you can’t go wrong. So if you want to see what i have been buying over the past few weeks, then carry on reading!

Bumble Bee Shirt – Primark £7 – I love this shirt SO much and it’s just such a versatile and easy piece to wear.

Superga – £25 (sale) – I’ve been after some black plimsoll-type trainers for a while , and when I saw these half price I had to snatch them up!

Patterned Trousers – Matalan £4.50 (sale) – First of all , these were such a bargain price (originally £8) , they’re such good quality and have a lovely design. These trousers are actually quite tailored , and go tight at the bottom without any elastication. they have elastic at the back of the waist and are so comfy. I have worn these non-stop and i LOVE them.

Black Frill Top  – H&M £7 – I brought this top to pair with patterned skirts or just to wear with jeans to jazz up a usually plain black top. These frill tops are very in at the moment and i really like it.

Stripy Long-Sleeved Tee – Primark £4 – I brought this to go under dungarees and with skirts. I actually bought a skirt which you will see in a minute that i thought it would go nicely with.

Black Hat – M&S £3 (sale) – I ADORE this. This was down from £25 i believe , so such a bargain. It is my first ever hat like this and i can’t wait to wear it in the winter.

Stripy Bikini Shorts – H&M £3 (Sale) – When I tried these on , i really liked how they settled just above the hips. I love the quality of these and i am currently on the search for a black bikini top to pair them with.

These are a few random beauty bits that i picked up , the first being The Botanics Radiance Balm (£2.99). This is lovely to wear under makeup , as its= gives your skin a gorgeous healthy glow. I picked this  up from Boots when there was an offer on the Botanics skincare. Next from Accessorize i got this gorgeous nail polish. I mainly got this to stand on my dressing table , as i love the packaging. The last beauty item is a Benefit product. I got Benefits Precisely My Brow Pencil. I got this when there was 15% off so it was around £16. I had no intention on buying this , however the lady in there did my brows for me and I just adored the look this product gave.

Maroon Skirt – M&S £19.50 – This skirt looked like the perfect winter skirt and i loved how it fitted, so i had to pick it up.

 

So I very much hope you enjoyed this post, I definitely won’t be buying anything else for a long old time! Let me know your favourite item from the haul!

Travel : Norwich to Suffolk ✿

So a couple of weeks ago my family and i decided to take little trip to Norwich and Suffolk coast. It was such a lovely night away and seen as Suffolk holds one of my all time favourite beach towns , i couldn’t wait to share with you guys!

We started our trip in Norwich , where we shopped for the the best part of the day and also looked around a university for my sister. Sadly i didn’t pick up anything , however i did have the most delicious evening meal in Gourmet Burger Kitchen.

After watching many of Zoe’s (Zoella) vlogs where she visited GBK i desperately wanted to try it out. She raved about the skinny fries and garlic mayo , so of course i had to try it! The picture above is actually of my sister’s meal, because i forgot to take a picture of mine before taking a bite (whoops!). I can hands down say it was the best burger i have ever tried, and if you are a burger fan just like me then definitely try this restaurant out. Also the drinks were AMAZING ( i had strawberry elderflower).

The next day on our way to Southwold and Aldeburgh , we stopped off at a little town. We mainly went there for their huge antique barns filled with so many gorgeous pieces of furniture , one room felt like we had been transported into the 60s – it was brilliant!

Then we arrived at Southwold hurrah! This place instantly makes me happy ,  i absolutely love southwold. We come every single summer and every year it instantly makes me smile.

Every time we come to Southwold we go to this little ice cream shop which has so many delicious flavours. I went for candyfloss and it was yummmy! My family went for bakewell tart, salted caramel and bubblegum which were all pretty delicious but i couldn’t turn down such a pretty pink ice cream!

After my ice cream i did brave it into the sea, which was pretty cold but wonderful at the same time!

Final stop – Aldeburgh. Here we mooched around the highstreet and had fish & chips on the beach. I love sitting on Aldeburgh beach as not only can you see the beautiful sea, but also the stunning buildings around you.

After Aldeburgh we embarked on the long journey home , feeling full up on seaside treats!

Thanks very much for reading , i hope you enjoyed hearing about my travels. I would love to hear your favourite beaches and places to visit! x

Summer Reading ✿

I set myself 6 books to either read or reread throughout the summer. I have finished them all , apart from Gone Girl. So i thought i would give the books a miny review and let you know what i thought and whether i would recommend you reading them or not.

After You – Jojo Moyes 

This book follows on from the very famous and well loved book Me Before You. This book tells Lousia Clarke’s story after the suicide of her lover. She learns to fall in love again whilst suffer heartbreak and happiness. Her family learn to forgive and an unexpected visitor shakes up her world. I was so engrossed with this book i actually could not put it down. There were times when i was smiling from ear to ear and then in the next moment i was crying. This book was AMAZING! Love Love Love.

Summer At Shell Cottage – Lucy Diamond

I was given this book for my birthday and initially loved the gorgeous cover. However once i actually started reading the book i fell in love with it even more. The plot has so many underlying stories and actually turns for this quaint little family story to this dark plot. There was LOADS of unexpected turns and was very gripping – but not in a scary way. Its about a family ( The Tarrants) and they are having their annual holiday in Devon however this year is very different. After the death of Alec Tarrant lots has changed and many secrets are uncovered.

Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn

I have heard so many people rave about this, but i just can’t get into it. I tried reading it at the beginning of the summer but didn’t really like it so i started a different book. This is quite a dark and complex mystery. Nick Dunne’s wife has gone missing and it looks as though he is somehow involved. This is very fast pace and there are lots of elements to the book. I for one really can’t get into so i can’t recommend.

You Had Me At Hello – Mhairi McFarlane

I am about half way through this book , and i am currently loving it! Its such a relate-able and realistic story. As i said i haven’t finished but so far the book has been about Rachel , a woman who has recently split up from her finance and is adjusting to her single life when she bumps into her university sweetheart. She is desperately trying to regain their friendship whilst also coming to terms with her new label – single. I think this could be one of my new favorite books and i can’t wait to read the ending.

The Shock Of The Fall -Nathan Filer

This book is extremely gripping. It is a very sad book and really does make you think. It is about a young man struggling with a mental illness brought on bu guilt from what happened to his younger brother. We get to see the world through his eyes and learn his bittersweet family memories. This isn’t a book i usually go for, however this book was truly amazing and helps us to understand mental illnesses.

Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell

Now this book is one of my ABSOLUTE favorites. I love this book so much. I have reread the book so many times and i just love it. Its about twins who depended on each so much after their mum left , who face university together and face drifting apart.There is so many raw and real parts of this book as well as humor and the big romance as well. I have also seen the sequel to this and i’m definitely going to be reading that soon, as this is one of my all time faves.

 

So i very much hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know if you have read any of these books and let me know your favorite books! Thanks so much for reading , speak to you soon! xx

What’s In My School Beauty Bag ✿

For my final back to school themed post, I’m going to be sharing what’s in my school beauty bag. I think I have covered all of the essentials a girl would need beauty wise at school!

So my actual bag is from Betty and Walter this is the same design as my pencil case. I adore this pattern and love that all my bags match ! This bag is a really good size and fits everything I need without taking up too much space in my school bag.

✿ Hair Pins and Hair Bobbles – Pretty standard, I just keep these handy becuase you never know when you will be blessed with a hair disaster (very common for me).

✿ Wet Wipes – Necessary if you get pen all over your hands or after a experiment in science etc.

✿ Hand Cream – I love to moisturise my hands after cold lunches outside or after writing for a long time.

✿ Hair Brush – I got a little hair brush from SuperDrug which is small and slimline which is great for my bag and handy for sorting my hair out after windy break times.

✿ Hand Sanitizer – I got a huge bottle from Boots , as I’m a bit of a germ freak. I use this before lunch and if there’s no soap in the toilets.

✿ Lip Scrub and Lip Balm – I love the Lush lips scrubs and they’re especially good when paired with a baby lips. My favourite baby lips is the watermelon one as I just love the watermelon scent.

✿ Nail File and Nail Polish Pad – I got some really tiny nail files from Tiger which are just so handy if you cath your nail whilst in school. I also find Topshop’s nail polish remover pads SO handy. In previous school years on a Monday morning just as I’m leaving the house I forget about the nail polish on my fingers so these little pads are a life saver.

✿ Concealer and Oil Blot Stick – I always like to have a Collection lasting perfection concealer handy, as they’re so easy to blend and hide any imperfections perfectly. I also love Benefits Porefessional License to Blot Stick , as it’s so quick and easy to remove any oil .

So I really hope you enjoyed my back to school series. I hope this has helped you remember some bits to pack in your bag . Have a great time at school , see you soon !

Back To School Stationary Haul ✿

Following on from my last week I’m coming at you with yet another back to school post, however this time it’s all things stationary. Now I wish more than anything that this post would be full of pretty notepads and cool pens but this is my GCSE year at school so I just had to get the basic general school supplies. This meant it was all to help with revision (cry). 

The first thing I got was from Wilkinsons , and it’s a pack of revision cards. These are colourful and very nicely decorated which helps to make me want to revise! 

I got the most gorgeous pencil case from a shop called ‘Betty and Walter’. It has big pink flowers on with a black background which I really like. It’s the perfect size and I can’t wait to use it for school.

From tesco I got some mini Tipex pens as these are really hand to pop in your pencil case. I also got a big lined paper pad, to write down any notes that I might need to make. I also got some sticky notes from tesco , to stick in my planner with any key notes I need to remember .

From Rymans I got a big set of fine liners. I love writing in pretty colours, so when it comes to revison I find it more interesting to revise from. Also it’s just an excuse to buy more pens (haha!) . 

Finally I had to get a tin of maths equipment , as this is something I will be using more and more in my final year at school.

So I hope everything goes well if your going  back to school soon, make sure you try your best and enjoy your school years ! Thanks so much for reading and I will see you next week for my final back to school post!

Simple Back To School Makeup ✿

So it’s almost that dreaded time again , back to school. For the next 3 posts , I’m going to be doing back to school themed posts, to get everyone ready for school and maybe (just maybe) make you excited for school rather than hiding every time the S word is mentioned. I know I’m not looking forward to going  back to school , but hopefully these posts will make me and you look forward to it! So without further ado lets get started with my simple back to school makeup look!


So to keep your skin oil and shine free throughout the long old school day , I would recommend applying the Benefit Porefessional Matte Rescue Primer. This primer really does the trick , I assure you it lets no oil creep through in the day!

Moving onto base makeup. I tend to skip BB cream on school days , due to hectic early mornings. However my trusty Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer hides any horrible bags , spots and blotches which is all I need for school. And just to ensure absolutely no oil appears on your face , I dab Benefits Porefessional License To Blot on my T-zone.

I then slightly warm up my face with the Rimmel Natural Bronzer. This finishes off my natural makeup look and helps to disguise my place face!

For eyes I swipe Clinique’s Eye Shadow Stick ( bountiful beige) all over my lid and blend slightly with a fluffy brush. I then go back with my bronzer to deepen the crease and pull the look together. I finish off my eyes with Benefit They’re Real Mascara this gives a really natural fluttery finish.

I then finish with a tinted lip balm by Maybelline (cherry me) once again for a really natural look.
So I very much hope you enjoyed this minimalistic makeup look. It is very easy and lightweight and takes me a total of five minutes in the morning ! Thanks so much for reading !

Budget Beauty – Full face of makeup for £25 ✿

So I decided to set myself the challenge of creating a complete makeup look for under £25 . This look totalled at £22! Today I’m going to share with you a bunch of inexpensive products that create the perfect budget makeup look.


Now I don’t use foundation which helped me reach my target budget of £25. But for my base makeup , I used Collection lasting perfection concealer (£4.99) and to set that in place , I used Rimmel Clear complexion powder (£4). Both of these prep cuts are my go to , they’re so inexpensive but such high quality. I would definitely recommend these products if you’re starting out with makeup or just looking for a cheaper alternative.
 

Moving onto eyebrows , I picked up the MUA eyebrow pencil (£1). I use the shade Boone which matches my hair perfectly and I have ginger hair. This pencil has a spoolie on the end , which helps to make your brow look more natural. Also I have found this to be waterproof which is brilliant for everyday wear as it stays on even through the harshest weather.

For highlight , I chose the amazing Makeup Revolution Baked Highlighter Peach Lights (£3). This adds such a stunning shimmer and is such a high quality product with a really low price tag. For blusher I picked out Natural collections blusher Dusky Pink (£1.99). Natural collection is a really good brand and I think all of there products are packaged so nicely. This blush is very natural and just adds a subtle pop of colour-perfect for summer!

One product that I can not rave about enough, is MUA single eyeshadow Champagne (£1). This is ridiculously pigmented and just such a wearable shade. I use this almst everyday as either an eyeshadow or a highlighter. Definitely try out this product, it is amazing! 

I have another eyeshadow , that I managed to squeeze into my budget. This is the Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette (£4). This contains 12 gorgeous and wearable shimmery shades,that are reflect for everyday use and can be built up for a more intense look. These eye shadows are super pigmented and have very little amount of fallout.

Moving onto mascara , this one I use a lot and love a lot. This is the Seventeen Long Lash Mascara ( £3.99). This not only lengthens lashes but also increases volume , I can’t find a single fault with the actual product. The only slight issue is the packaging , but we can move past that.

And finally lips. This product I don’t really like. It is very creamy, meaning it it transfers all over the place . Also it settles into the cracks in my lips making the overall appreance of my lips very bad. So the product I’m talking about is an MUA lipstick in the shade Bare (£1).

So this entire look totalled at £22. Most of these products I really liked and will contine to use. I hope you enjoyed reading and Thankyou very much!

Fun Day Out Under £5 ✿

Now I don’t know about you , but in the summer holidays I seem to pay out lots of money at the beggining and have lots of amazing days, but then get to the middle of the summer and come a little bit stuck. Having spent a large amount of money , my friend and I wanted to have a fun day out for under £5. We set ourselves the challenge of doing this and I have to say it has been one of my favourite summer days so far. So today I thought I would share with you how we achieved an amzing day for under £5.

Me and my friend went shopping for picnic items , that came to a grand total of £4.28. It included a drink,crisps,chocolates ,blueberries,sand which filling and rolls. This created the perfect summer lunch and was really inexpensive. 


We had so much fun preparing the picnic and packng it away in the hamper . It’s easy to forget the enjoyment that comes with cooking with friends ! 

Then we hopped on our bikes , and went for quite a long bike ride. We found a gorgeous spot near to a river and set up camp there. We brought a picnic blanket and some pretty napkins and cups to make the picnic look nice and to get some nice pictures hahha!

Once there we blared some music, took pictures and enjoyed the little things! 


A tip I have for you to have a really fun day , is adventure and discover new places. Me and my friend found this lovely river , a place neither of us had been to before!

So I hope you enjoyed this blogpost and I hope you have an amazing summer! My posts should go back to the usual time , Monday at 8:00pm next week!

July Favourites! ✿

Hey everybody , hope you’re having a fab summer. Today’s post is a monthly favourite and I will be sharing with you all the things I have been loving through he month of July. This month in England we have got quite lucky with the lovely hot weather so most of these things have helped me survive the heat! 

For my birthday I got his really cool bottle that says ‘100% thirsty ‘. Throughout the month of July I have been using this non stop. It’s perfect to carry about the house and also the lid means no bugs can get in your drink.  You can get bottles like this from Starbucks , Primark and any home store.

After reading ‘me before you ‘ I have been desperate to read the next book, ‘after you’. I adored the first book , but this book has quite a different tone , but I’m still loving it although I’m yet to finish it!

This summer , Benefits World Neutral set has came in really handy. With two cream shadows and four powder shadows , it’s a great kit for travelling and the high quality means that they stay on through the hot weather. This set is so gorgeous and is great for everyday wear or can be made a bit more dramatic for evening wear.


To get my skin looking glowy and summer ready , I have been using the Garnier summer body moisturising lotion. This makes your skin looking nice and healthy for about 3-4 days and then after that my painfully pale skin colour will return ahah! 

Something that has been a life saver this month for me , has been the Paul & Joe sun protection body mist. This is so slimline, which makes it perfect to throw into your bag and if the sun comes out you can just spritz yourself with this and be protected.

The NYX buttergloss has been my go to lip product this month and the shade I have been loving is called Maple Blondie. This smells like cupcakes and heaven mixed together and leaves a non sticky finish – perfect! 

Next is this Nailsinc polish in the shade Chiltern Park. I have been wearing this colour so much, it’s a perfect summer shade – watermelon red. It dries super shiny and last for a really long time. I’m going to be wearing this non stop throght put the summer and would highly recommend it! 

The last product is also related to nails , and are these nail polish pads from Topshop. These pads last for so long and I only need one for both of my hands. I love the watermelon scent so these are perfect for me. I had to pick some more of these up when I went shopping recently , as they’re just so handy.

Thanks so much for reading , I hope you enjoyed this post! Have a lovely week and see you on Monday!
