May Favourites! ✿

Hello everybody , hope you are all well! It baffles me that I’m writing my May favourites, it seems like the days are just flying by! But I guess we’re a step closer to summer (woohoo). 

I’m gong  to begin with books , I’m not a huge book person but once I get into a good book I can’t stop! The book I have been reading non stop this month is ‘all the bright places’. In this book there was times where I was smiling from ear to ear and then crying my eyes out. One thing I will say about this book is that it had a VERY unexpected ending! But do give this a read as I think it’s now one of my all time favourites.

Now the second book is more of a jokey book.One of the reasons I started a blog was to write down ,my thoughts and feelings , but only positive ones.With this book you can write about the more negative aspects of life and what you want to change about the world – perfect for when you’re Prime Minister! 

Now moving onto beauty , the bit I’ve been waiting for. This month I have been bronzing up my face like there’s no tomorrow. And to do this of course I’ve been using the benefits Hoola Bronzer.Now I know a lot of people are a little bit scared of this product and it is quite daunting , but today (get ready for this) I saw a mini version in Boots for half the price! When I saw this I had to take some deep breaths becuase it was so cute! So if you’re desperate to try it but a little nervous then why not try the mini?

I have been adding lots of glow to my face this month , with the Revolution baked highlighter. I can’t rave about this product enough! It adds the most gorgeous glow , has such high quality packaging and costs just £3! What more could you want? 

I have also been loving the Maybelline colour tattoo in Pink-Gold. I feel like this comes out every spring / summer time, as it’s just my perfect summer colour! I especially love this with a bit of the Hoola run through my crease.

And the last beauty related item , is the witch blemish stick. I was talking to my friend about how she keeps her skin so clear , and she said she swears by this stick. To be totally honest I’d completely forgot about it , but I whipped it out again and it worked miracles!  I dabbed this on a nasty spot before bed and when I woke up the spot was no longer there ! 

Finally , I have been nibbling away on the most delicious sweeties ,IceBreakers. These are so yummy – especially watermelon! 

So I hope you enjoyed this post , thanks for reading !  I would love to hear some book recommendations, as I really want to get back into reading!

Clinique Chubby Stick Haul ✿

Hello everybody , recently I got my first ever Clinique chubby stick. I can now definitely  say they are worth the huge wait. They are so amazing , so moisturising and just brilliant.When my Grandma went on holiday she ever so kindly got me quite a lot of chubby sticks and today I’m going to share with you what exactly I got! 


So I got 5 ‘moisturising lip colour balms’ and 1 ‘shadow stick’.


From left to right the colours are:

Curviest Caramel

Chunkiest Chilli 

Chunky cherry 

Mega melon 

Heftiest Hibicus 

Bountiful Beige ( shadow stick) 

I adore all of these colours , most of which are very neutral everyday colours but I also wanted a bright pop so I got Heftiest Hibicus and it’s safe to say I’m in love.They leave your lips feeling super plump and soft and with a glossy sheen. 

I went for a few naturals aswell. I wear curviest caramel most days now and it’s brilliant.It doesn’t crack it gives a gorgeous colour and last ages! 

I decided to get the shadow stick , becuase I thought I could also use it as a highlighter. this stick, is so creamy and so sparkly it’s crazy. I adore Clinique and definatley will be trying some more bits from their eyeshadow range as this has amazed me.

Not only is the actual product fantastic , the packaging is also gorgeous . They have used beautiful colours and the design is flowers and leaves. I think the packaging is so classy and makes the product look really expensive.


I am so pleased with my Clinique splurge and have fallen in love with the brand! Let me know if you have anything from Clinuque and which Chubby stick is your favourite! Thanks ever so much for reading !

Jammy Dodger Cupcakes ✿

Hi , hope you’re all well, today I wanted to tell you about some absolutely delicious cupcakes I made! I saw this idea on Pinterest and I didn’t think for one minute they would turn out as good as they did! So without further a do my jammy dodger cupcakes ! 

Ingredients you will need : 

  • 150g of Unsalted butter 
  • 150g of caster sugar 
  • 175g of self raising flower 
  • 3 eggs 
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract 
  • 12 mini jammy dodgers 
  • 4 teaspoons of strawberry jam 
  • Cream icing 

This recipe makes 12 cupcakes ! 

To begin with , put cake cases in a cupcake tray and preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Then cream the butter and sugar together , until smooth and creamy – makes sure there’s no lumps to get a delicious airy cake! 

Add the eggs and vanilla and stir through the mixture with a spoon. 

Finally add the flour and stir together until all the flour is in the mixture and it’s completely combined.

Bake the cupcakes for 18-20 minutes , and make sure they look a lovely golden colour. 

Make sure you leave to cool! 

Once cooled you can ice the cupcakes – my favourite part ! I did a swirl on the top of the cake , as we want the icing quite simple.

Boil some water and add just a tiny bit to about 4 teaspoons of jam.Mix the jam and water together until the jam is runny enough  to pour gently over the icing.

And for the final touch add a mini jammy dodger ! And that’s it ! 

I love these cakes , and have gone onto make party ring versions as well ! So get creative and have sum fun – you might want to hide them  from your family though , becuase mine were gone in 10 seconds haha! 


Thanks for reading , hope you enjoyed , let me know what  you think to these cupcakes!

Brand Focus : Collection ✿

So I saw this idea whilst scrolling though the blogs I follow and it thought this was such I cool idea. I’ve chosen a makeup brand , and got together few bits I have from the brand and just go over what it’s like and wether it’s any good! The brand I chose today is collection but I think this is something I would like to do more often so look out for other brand focus’that I do.

For those of you who haven’t heard of this brand , it’s a super affordable drugstore brand , that sells all types of makeup. Its meant for teens , due to the low price and quite low quality packaging. This brand has done collaborations with bands like Little Mix and is generally a nice brand.

So here are all of the bits I’m going to be talking about today : 

  
Collection lasting perfection concealer – £4.19

This product is more on the pricey side for Collection , but is amazing! I’ve heard so many you tubers/bloggers rave about this stuff and I joined in with the hype. It’s very creamy and covers any imperfections perfectly.It doesn’t crease throughout the day or rub off. I’ve got through about 6 of these now and I shall keep on repurchasing as its a staple in my makeup collection.

Collection eyes uncovered nude palette – £3.99

  

I can say I’m very impressed with this product. This palette comes with 6 shades , 2 Matt and 4 glitters. You can make a really pretty eyelook from this pallet , one that I wear often and I love. It’s great for travelling , as its got cardboard packaging so it’s not very heavy and also it’s not very big.The slight downsides is that it hasn’t got a mirror  , but It has a got a really low price.The staying power of the eyeshadow isn’t amazing but the pigmentation makes up  for that!


Collection Pink strawberry lip balm – £1.99

I’m afraid this product is not something I can rave about. I got this free when purchasing something from collection a while ago and I can say it’s rubbish. This is the only lip product I’ve tried from collection , so the other ones may be better but this one is awful. There is a tiny amount of product and for £2 I’d expect more. Also it doesn’t moisturise your lips at all. The only positive is that the bright red colour last for ages – this would be good if it was a nice colour!

Collection Extreme hour felt tip liner – £2.99

  

Now when I brought this I’m pretty sure it was £1 , but none the less , this product is amazing ! It was my first ever eyeliner , and I would go out and buy it again. It’s super black , it doesn’t budge and it has a really precise point which makes it so easy to apply. The packaging looks quite high end !and the product it’s self , I think is worth more money. It does have a slightly odd smell , but it’s not that powerful so it doesn’t really bother me .If you’re looking for a cheap but amazing felt tip eyeliner , then this is perfect for you – highly recommend! 
Collection Eye Brow kit – £3.99

I love this pallet, it’s so affordable and such amazing quality.The brush it comes with is great , the gel is amazing , and the actual product beats any brow product I’ve tired. I’ve heard so many good reviews about this , and I can now understand why.This trio is also really good for eyeshadow .The packaging is sturdy and feels good quality which is great for the low price.


Collection Work the colour eyeshadow pencil – £3.19 

  

I got this when it was reduced and I think it was something silly like 50p. Now I’m very glad I didn’t pay full price , as its very dry and it doesn’t blend well at all. I’m quite disappointed with this , as the other eyeshadow pallet is really good , but this just really isn’t. The colour I have here is vintage rose , which is a really pretty colour , which is why it’s such a shame it’s so dry. Also I love the packaging ,   but the actual product is a let down .

Thanks for reading this rather long post! I hope you enjoyed , do you have any collection items? X

Makeup , Baking & Decorating ✿

Today I’m sharing with you a day in life! I feel like I haven’t done one of these in absolutely ages , so I thought I would show you what I got up to today! 

  
For makeup , I went for a cat eye and a bright lip ! I also used my new *squeals* contour kit which is in fact very good! I also used one of my favourite blushes , the Kiko top pairs blusher – this is so good!  

I then  sadly had to get on with some  work , but it wasn’t too bad is I sat in my lovely new desk area! 

   
 
I think working in a pretty place , makes it so much better and even enjoyable! 

After finishing all of my work , I thought the best way to relax was to do some baking. I made some fridge cake , and I have actually done a full recipe on that Here. I think this gets better each time , because it was so yummy!

  

For lunch I made my delicious Philadelphia pasta , and this is the nicest pasta ever and it’s so easy to make! 

Just drain some tinned sweetcorn , cut up some ham and grate some cheese.

Cook some pasta and then drain through the same collider you drained the sweetcorn through , for added flavour.

Stir through the Philadelphia while the pasta is still hot , add the other ingredients and it’s good to go! 

By no means is this the healthiest lunch , but it’s a nice easy treat every now and again. 

  
So i  was sat watching some youtube videos for a while , and I got on to room tours and it made  me feel really inspired to jazz up my own room. I had some postcards and posters just sat in a draw seo I dcided to stick them up on my wall using some pretty washi tape in the hope that it looked nice!

  
Im actually really pleased with how it ended up and it definatley makes a huge difference to my room and I’m super happy!

That’s pretty much all I did that day , I then just had some tea and relaxed and popped on a movie . I watched my all time favourite move ‘love rosie’it is such a funny , feel good movie that’s defiantly  worth a watch !

Thanks for reading , I hope you enjoyed hearing about my day! Let me know if you want me to carry on doing posts like this !
