May

Sunday, May 31, 2015


Hey everyone,

May has been a bit of a strange month for me, I felt like it was going to be great. I had a few days off work and I planned to blog my socks off and I did nothing.

I've written a whole 10 posts this month.

I have lots of exciting things I want to share, I've treated myself to some new things for holiday and just for the heck of it but I have had no motivation to sit and write.

It will be June in an Hour and It's the month I go on holiday so I'm hoping to get my finger out and get some posts written.

I've taken a load of photo's tonight on my phone and added things to draft posts. Tomorrow I will dump out the memory card from my camera and do the same again.

I don't want to just churn out crap posts for the sake of it but I don't want to vanish completely

I'm planning on resurrecting my  blog scheduled to stick to certain posts on certain days and fingers crossed I will get some regular posts up.

I've so poorly this last week I haven't even opened my laptop and yesterday a period from hell arrived and I don't know what to do with myself. I'm hot, cold, angry, sad, hungry, queasy, tired, full of energy all at the same time.

I have also had a burst of energy reading and I've read 4 books this past week. One I hated, two I loved one confused me and I'm trying to decide what I want to read next.

If you have emailed me in the past week, basically I'm ignoring you, I have about 400 unread emails mainly junk but I think some of them need action from me.

I'm trying to think of anything else to tell you, eerrr nope I think that's it for now.

Thanks for reading and on Friday this week I will be posting a YouTube video where I speak!! eeek I'm scared, I hope you all will watch it and let me know what you think xxxx

Make up

Fortnightly Make Up Rotation

Friday, May 22, 2015

At the end of April I did a post about my new weekly make up rotation called Weekly Beauty Basket.

You can read all about the premise in that post but after a couple of weeks I still haven't bought a basket and as my make up needs to be on the go and lives in a make up bag. I have been changing things weekly so far but a number of things have been in each week so I've decided to change fortnightly post fortnightly.

I'm not limiting myself to only using these and I am happy to switch things out as when I need to but this will be the core of my make up for the next fortnight.

Fortnightly make up rotation All Products
Make up for the next fortnight
 Eyes


Fortnightly make up rotation Eye products W7, Benefit, Essesnce, Rimmel, Maybelline
Eyes 
Eye Shadow - Benefit RSVP ceaseless eye shadow. I've had this for so long it should really have been thrown away but I love it. I use it as a base / primer. This came in a set in duty free.

W7 In The City Natural Nudes - Eye Colour Palette, This contains 6 Matt shadows and I'm still finding my way with this. I bought it because it's nice and compact and is all matt but I feel like it's missing something.

Eyebrows - So Susan Dual Brow Powder, This stuff is amazing. It came in a beauty box last year was going to pass it on to a friend but decided to try it. I do go through phases with it as it retails at about £12 which is quite expensive in my mind but I find it stays put all day and doesn't smudge.
Maybelline Brow Drama in Medium Brown, I've spoken about this a lot and I'm still loving it.

Eye liner - Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil in 02 Hot Chocolate. I've never really liked or got on well with twist eye pencils and always still to kajal / Khol pencils but I love this and it was so cheap. I'm tempted to buy another one already. I will be buying one in black, but I'm really liking brown eye make up atm.

Mascara - Rimmel London Kate Eye Rocket in Jet Black.... I've only had this a week and so far I don'r like it. May be I'm doing something wrong but I can't close enough to the root of my eye lash and I find it flakes quite a lot. I'm going to persevere with it for a but longer but at the moment I won't be repurchasing this one.

Face Products


Fortnightly make up rotation Eye products Rimmel, No7, Maybelline, Clinique, Nars
Face Products
Primer - Clinique Smart Serum, Not technically a primer but It's what I'm using before I apply any make up. I've only used it twice so far but I like the small size and so far has made my skin feel nice. This came free with a magazine last week. 

Foundation - No7 Stay Perfect Super Light Foundation. Again this is a fairly new product. I can never find a foundation that is the right colour for me, as soon as I find one within a fortnight it feels like it's the wrong colour. I was colour matched in my local boots and I came out as cool beige. SO far so good. I like how it feels. It is light weight but gives me a decent coverage. 

Rimmel Lasting Perfection Powder Foundation In 002 Soft Beige, for me this is more of a powder but I have used it with a damp beauty blender and thought it was ok. I think I will be using it more as a powder. 

Concealer - Maybelline Age Rewind in Nude. This has to be my favourite product ever. This only comes in two colours and someone told me it's been discontinued. I really hope that isn't true. I mainly use it under my eyes but I think I need to get the light one as well. This is also a pretty good match for me to use as a normal concealer. 

Blusher -  Nars Blush in Deep Throat. I got this in a goodie bag from an event last year and to be honest I'm a little afraid of it. It is a beautiful colour and I think it suits me but I'm so crap at applying blusher and with it being Nars I think it's out of my comfort zone. I'm trying to use this as I'm trying to get away from saving things for best. 

Lip Products

Lip Pencil - Make Up Gallery Rose 02. Poundland have been getting some good feedback on their own brand make up. I got a few items from them and I really need to test them out. This feels quite dry but I haven't really use it yet. 


Lipstick - Clinique Pop in 14 Plum Pop. This was a birthday treat to myself. There are 16 colours and this one jumped out at me. It's a great every day colour. I love the colour on me and I'm determined that I won't save it for best.

Lip Gloss - Collection Lock N Hold 2  Beat Box. I have a love hate relationship with lip glosses. I have a lot of them but find I avoid them and never reach for them. I picked this one up a couple of weeks a go as my 3rd item in a 342 deal at boots. I love this stuff, it smells amazing and while it doesn't last 6 hours. The applicator is really nice as well. It hard to explain but I really like it. There is a sheen rather than glitter to it and it I keep finding myself reaching for it.

Revlon Super Lustorous 040 Nude. I don't know if this is available any more (I think it's been repackaged and renamed) I got this in a set from TK Maxx last weekend. It came with 4 lip glosses and 4 lipsticks which I split with my friend. This is really nice to wear, it isn't sparkly or shimmery but just glossy.

 I've been rotating my make up for a couple of weeks and I'm trying to keep to the bare minimum, I do my make up on the bus and don't want to be carrying round too much.

I do feel like I am missing some things and could live without some but I think as I start to wear make up every day more or less I think it's good for me to rotate and try and find what products I love and actually finish a make up item for once.

Beauty Crowd Haul

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Recently I have become a little bit addicted to watching American YouTubers and feel so Jealous of the brands (not to mentions the prices) and they products they have. 

A Britsh YouTuber +Leah XL Channel recently did a video on products she'd bough from Beauty Crowd a website selling a lot of American Brands and for reasonable prices. 

I tried hard to resist but I only got three quarters of the way through her video before I'd placed an order. 

It's free delivery over £20 as well. (Tip follow them on Twitter before you place an order - They might send you a discount. I didn't follow them till after my order had arrived. They might not but worth a try) 


What did I get:
Jordana - Fabuliner Bold Felt tip Liquid Eyeliner - £3.95 I haven't worn this out yet but It seems to go on easily. It is a pretty thick line and from the swatches I've done dries a dark black colour.

Jordana - Mascara 03 Brown - £2.95 The packaging on this is very basic and dare I say old fashioned rather than retro. It's a basic brown mascara. the wand looks fairly traditional and it passes the sniff test. It doesn't smell. Again I haven't tried this for a full day out but my initial swatch on my lashes I find it looks like a nice natural look. It seems more  that volumising than lengthening.

Jordana - Modern Matte Lipstick 04 Matte Tease - £3.50 I'm really not sure about this one. Again I haven't given it a chance. I'm not sure the colour works for me but it might once we get to summer. The formula is quite thick and takes a bit of effort to apply. I don't mean you need both hands and a friend but it doesn't glide on like some products. It smells amazing, I'm not sure what the smell is. Cake, vanilla. It's a sweet smell and I like it. 

Milani - Total Lash Cover Mascara with 3 zone cover 105 Black  - £6.00 I have to say this was the most exciting product for me. It's in what I'd class as real American packaging. What I mean by that is the wand isn't in the tube already. Small things but this excited me greatly. The wand is fascinating. I couldn't get a clear picture of it but I think I did post one to instagram. I haven't tried this at all as I can't get into the tube. I need to ask my dad if he can use his dad powers to unscrew the lid. 

Milani - 42 Femme Rose - £5.00 This is a beautiful brick rose colour and is a similar consistency to the Jordana in how it applies but for me it does go on a little bit easier. It's a great everyday colour and I've worn this to work a couple if times. The only thing I don't like about it is the smell, I hold my hands up I'm fussy and this lipstick smells and tastes like watermelon. It doesn't last long but until the smell wears off it makes me feel a bit sicky (one too many bacardi breezers in the late 90s) . It's not enough to stop me wearing it but I don't think I'll be buying any more (I might) 

I was also really impressed with the speed of delivery. I ordered at 7.30pm On Thursday 7th May and it arrived on Monday 11th May. 

I will be using them again and I'm looking forward to trying all of these out properly

ASDA Leggins with Pockets

Monday, May 18, 2015

You might already know three things about me

1. I love wearing leggins
2. I love clothes with pockets
3. I love patterns

My Local(ish) ASDA living had my perfect combination. Patterned leggins with pockets. I'm not completely sure they leggins as they are not quite as tight as leggins but they are tighter than trousers.

I wear these more as trousers than leggins and since I got them at the start of April. Life got in the way of me posting and I bloody love them.

I think I've worn they every week since I got them. Sometimes twice a week.

I'm happy enough to wear them with my t-shirt tucked in or what I have been doing is wearing them with a more casual t-shirt from forever 21+ which i wear untucked.

They are mainly polyester so they can get quite warm but they are really comfy and I'm happy to wear them on a comfy day and to wear them to work.

I think these are a size 20 or 22 (I've left them in Skipton so I can't check), while I feel like I could size down as they are bit baggy on the legs. I don't think I would have done as when I sit down and the pattern is stretched it does go pale and I wouldn't want that look on myself.

There was an added bonus when I went to pay as they had £12 on the lag but went through at  £8. (love a surprise reduction)

I know this post is up months after I bought them and I haven't been to ASDA recently and I don't know if they are still available but they might have something similar.

Beauty Basket - Week 2

Friday, May 15, 2015


This worked really well for me last week. I tend not to wear much make up over the weekend so on Friday night I emptied my make up bag and started to gather things for the coming week.

It was pay day weekend and I knew I was buying new things so I held off until Sunday before making my final choices.

I've picked out a lot less stuff but I still think it's too much. The joy of new make up means I want to use it all and use it all now.


Some of these are Newly bought the weekend of 25th / 26th April. I'll also note the I'm carrying over from the previous week.

Lips -
Collection Lock and Load lipgloss. NEW this was my free item in a 3 for 2 deal. I couldn't find anything else I fancied. I'm not a huge fan of lip glosses but I liked the colour and smell of this one.
Seventeen - Lip Crayon. I own a huge number of these types of products. I'm trying to rotate them
NYX chubby stick - See above
NYC Applelicious - LAST WEEK. I dug these out last week as I'm going to do a Re-Haul post next week and I did like using them. Keeping one out to use.
CK lip gloss - NEW. A bargain from TJ Hughes. I wanted to use it as it's new .

Brushes (All New)

Face -
Rimmel Lasting Finisg Primer. NEW. My Laura Mercier finally ran out last week and I'd planned on buying the blue 002 rimmle primer which I love but I've decided to try the Lasting Finish
Rimmel Lasting Finish Poweder Foundation - NEW. While I love the Number 7 foundation I got last week. It was expensive. (for me at least) I wanted a budget option to use every day and fancied a change to powder. I can't remember ever using a powder foundation so we'll see how I get on.
Lord & Berry Bronzer - I didn't have much use of the giant Essence bronzer last week. I'm hoping this smaller sample size might get used.
Models Co - cream blush. I'm still not sure on cream blushes. I think I need to watch a few YouTube video's but going to give it a try.

Eyes -

Collection Little Mix - All about the eyes palette. NEW, I've seen so many people talk about this. I've almost bought it a few times.
Collection Liquid pen - NEW, I've never been one to use eyeliner on my eye lid, but over the past couple of weeks I feel like It would look nice. As I'm loving brown eye products I thought I'd try it.
Brown Kohl pencil from Poundland - NEW. Some good reports around about Poundlands Makeup range, I really wanted a brow pencil to replace the essence but they didn't have any.

Maybelline Brow Drama LAST WEEK. I love this stuff. It was such a good decision on my part to get the mid brown colour.
Essence Eye pencil - LAST WEEK. Same as last week. I really liked this
Essence Eye Brow Pencil - LAST WEEK. I'm so close to finishing this It will be kept in until it;s gone.
Makeup Revolution single shadow - Following on from last week I want to try more single shadow looks. I know I could use one shadow from the palette but as I rarely use my single shadows I thought I'd include it.
Maybelline Mascara - While I've been loving the collection brown mascara I fancied a change for this week.


This was a good week, I'm still finding my feet and trying not to carry too much round with me. I am going to try only changing things every fortnight (ie, doing a post fortnightly)

What I have done for the coming weeks is pulled out quite a bit and I might have bought even more stuff (why do I do it!)

I've got my on the go make up in another new make up bag which has two compartments, as I use an item I move it to the other side of the bag and means If I'm not using something I can try and remember to take it out.

I forgot to get any face of the day pictures but I have got some for next weeks post so stay tuned.

I'm sorry these posts are a bit rambling, I'm still finding my way with these post.

Tales from the Changing Room - Simply Be

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

I finally found the Kelly Brook range in Simply Be in Bury, I'm not the biggest fan of KB but taking that aside I liked the look of some of the items so decided to give them a try.



I love the colours in this jumpsuit but there are so many things I'd change I couldn't justify the cost. I don't like that it has elasticated cuffs round the ankles, I don't like the neckline at the front (A V to mirror the back would have been much more to my taste), the fabric would need ironing so that is another bad point for me and finally the sizing. This is the 22 and I felt like if I moved It'd rip. I tried on 2 size 24s which were both smaller than this one.


 I love the print and the V at the back and that it has pockets but for me it's a no

The next dress I tried was pink and spotty, two of my favourite things, sadly this was also a bust for me.

This dress made me feel so crap about myself, I almost cried. This seems to be more and more a feature of my recent trips to SB. The fabric is really thick but I wouldn't say it's scuba, it was uncomfortable and while it was thick it shows every lump and bump.


On the hanger it looked like it would drape well but you can see the lines of my bra and excessive VBO.

I normally have no issues with a bit if VBO and feel quite happy in body con dresses, there was something about this dress that I didn't like on me.

I think this is a size 24 or 26 and while I know the size label shouldn't matter it made me feel bad. 

Another things that I didn't like was that it looks like there are dots missing, I'm not sure if you can see on the picture below. There are none missing. I spent 5 mins chasing round to check. 



 I've saved my favourite to the end, back to the same print and a beautifully shaped dress. I like the shape it gives me at the back.


Looking at these pictures it looks a lot nice that I remember it looking in real life. I felt despite the lining it gave me more VBO than I like. I didn't like the length but I like it in these pictures.

I feel really torn about this one now. It was very thick and I think it would be very warm but  I am going to keep my eye out for it being reduced.

I wasn't keen on anything else in the collection but with some tweaks there are things I would but but sadly not at full price.

Pre-Blog On Drinks at Hard Rock Cafe Manchester

Friday, May 08, 2015

On the Friday before Blog On at Mosi there was a meet up also organised by Laura, 30 or so bloggers came together for chats, cocktails and nibbles.

We were welcomed with a choice of cocktails, I have no idea what this was but the blueness appealed to me. It was delicious.

 I have to say the staff were all really nice, someone came round asking us if we wanted to pick songs which would be played throughout the night, I went for a Pixies song but I can't for the life of me remember the name of it!

We were given tokens and we could either make our own cocktails or have a bartender make us a cocktail.

 I didn't make my own cocktail mainly because I've done a couple of cocktail making classes in the last 12 months and it much more fun watching the others take their turn.

 You could choose from the classic cocktails or you could tell the bar tender what flavours you liked and they would mix you your perfect drink. I know a lot of people were drinking a drink called Blue Devil which was frozen / slushy and I wish I'd had one of those. Just means I have to go back to the Hard Rock and try one.

We also left with a goodie bag, I knew we were getting something but I was expecting a keyring, a zip pouch and a postcard. What they gave us was amazing all packed up in a bag for life. The chocolate guitar is awesome and was very delicious.

April 2015 - Empties

Thursday, May 07, 2015

Another month another huge box of empties!!

April Empties

Toothpaste

We've gone through 2 tubes. I'm not sure if these are smaller than regular size tubes both are by colgate and both do the job. I don't think there is anything amazing about either of them but I would buy them again.

April Empties Colgate
Colgate Toothpaste
Perfume sample

English Laundry. This came in a beauty box and I'm on the fence. I like it but I don't think I'd buy it as it's very expensive and the smell reminds me of Natural Collection bath pearls from the 90s. Which I do really like, I just can't justify the price at the moment.

April Empties English Laundry
Hand Cream

This was in a Christmas Set and it was from TK Maxx. I did like this as well but I won't be looking to repurchase it for myself but I would buy this again as a gift as it is nice and had a couple of other things in the set which I haven;t used yet.

April Empties
Moisturiser 
April Empties Balance Me
Mascara

I know I mentioned this in a haul post when I got it at first and I was really happy with it but I'm on the fence about repurchasing it. It didn't last very long and I know your meant to change your mascara every couple of months but it had just got to the good consistency stage when it was time to get rid of it as it had gone too dry and flaked after a couple of hours. 

It's a bargain price, I liked the colour of it which is black / brown and it's one I think I will revisit again in the future. 

April Empties Collection Black / Brown Mascara
Hair Products 

It won't be a shock to find a dry shampoo in my empties and I am still really liking the CoLab New York one. For me it's the best fragrance and does a really good job of sucking up oil. I don't know why but the others don't seem to work as well on me. I'd assumed they would be identical but differently scented? I should really read labels. At the moment I'm not planning on buying it again as I want to try some other brands but I would repurchase this one again.

Another hair products I've used up is a Lush shampoo bar. It's the purple one for greasy hair. I love this. I find it makes my hair feel clean and I've been washing my hair less often and I've reduced the amount of conditioner I use and now tend to use a treatment a couple of times a week and use detangler which I think it helping it not too look as greasy? We have a huge stock of liquid shapoo's in my bathroom at the moment so my plan is to try and use them up before I buy any more.

April Empties CoLab / Lush Shampoo bar
Bath Products

It seems strange to still be having baths in April as usually we only have hot water if we have the heating on as we have a strange heating system but it's still been so cold so yay hot water.

I'm still obsessed with bomb cosmetics bath products and I've been using a larger cupcake bath bomb that you can use 4-6 times. You drop it in the bath for a couple of mins then pick it back out. I really liked this, the only things I didn't like was how messy it was once you've taken it out of the bath. Luckily I saved the plastic bag It came in and put it back in.

I think it works as well the individual ones and I think I got 5 uses out of it. I could have squeezed one more use but forgot to fish it out the bath. I think it might be better value than the individual ones I've been using.

April Empties Bomb Cosmetics

The only other bath product I've used up was the Ickle baby bot from Lush. This dude was cool and I loved the smell. It's aimed at babies and toddlers but worked well to relax me before bed. It's also one of the cheaper bath bombs at £1.99. It is fairly small compared to the normal bath bombs but I think you could get two uses of it. I did use the whole thing. 
April Empties Lush Ickle Baby Bot



Face Masks

I'm really enjoying face masks at the moment. The sheet masks are so much better for me as they aren't as messy.

I'm planning to take a couple of these on holiday as they take up no space and they are fairly inexpensive


April Empties Face Mask
Face Wipes

The Primark wipes I've talked about before and they work pretty well, I'd be happy to buy them again.

The Garnier wipes were sent to me, I signed up for the Garnier newsletter and I got an email asking me to complete a survey and be entered into a draw. I'm not sure what happened but it took me straight to the name and address page and said thank you for your feedback and I might be sent wipes and I was.

I really like these. I feel like they make my face feel really clean, not as good as a full face wash but better than other wipes. I have already repurchased another two packs as they were on offer or extra points at superdrug.

April Empties Face Wipes

As I'm writing this, I've noticed the box is already filling up for May! I can't believe I thought these posts would be quarterly.

Manchester Martini - Forever Manchester

Monday, May 04, 2015

Last Tuesday I was invited by Forever Manchester to try the Manchester Martini which will be on sale throughout May at Gusto in Elliott House in Manchester City Centre.

The cocktail takes it’s inspiration from the well-known Mancunian (Salford really) soft drink.

Jennifer Stuart of Gusto Manchester says

“We have chosen to do this because it’s such a fun engaging way to support such a great, local charity. Our bar team are so excited to create the cocktails which will be judged and there’s already healthy competition surrounding the winning cocktail! We’re really looking forward to having the cocktail on the bar throughout May and can’t wait to serve as many as possible to the people of Manchester.”

Nick Massey, Chief Exec of Forever Manchester says:

“It’s great to have Gusto Manchester on board raising money for us in such a creative way. Our staff have tasted and enjoyed the cocktail on sale and we’re sure it’ll be a top seller, so we can reinvest the money raised back into the communities of Greater Manchester.”

The cocktail will cost £7.50 with a £1.00 from each one going to Forever Manchester.

Some of the people at the event

I got to try the cocktail for myself at the pre-launch event and had the fortune to get a 241 offer and I really liked the flavours. It was a nice surprise to find a ginbased cocktail as so many ted to be vodka (no bad thing) to whiskey (not for me thank you) based. The cocktail is strong enough in flavour to know that it is a cocktail but very drinkable and goes down very easily.

I know I will be on the lookout for other gin based cocktails in the future.

RE-HAUL - NYC Applelicious Balms

Friday, May 01, 2015

I've been watching Re-hauls on YouTube and I'm really into them and thought I would try and do a couple myself. I'm not sure how well they will translate to blog posts but lets give them ago.

If you don't know what a re-haul is I will try and explain. The idea is to go back to a previous haul and discuss the products again now a period of time has passed.

I think for my blog I can cover fashion and beauty items. It could be things like do you still own these items, how much use did you get out of the item, if it's still available would you recommend people buy them. Stuff like that.

NYC Applelicious Balm

I saw these after Sera McDaid  posted about them and ended up buying three out of the four shades.

  • NYC Applelicious Balm Caramel Apple
  • NYC Applelicious Balm Applelicious Pink
  • NYC Applelicious Balm Big Apple Red
I decided three was more than enough and didn't buy NYC Applelicious Balm Blushing Golden, I did say in that post I was going to buy it but I have never got round to it. I can't find these on superdrug's website anymore but there is a picture of them but when you click through it says no products available. 

When I got these at first I used them quite a bit and Big Red Apple is my favourite, they smell really nice (very appley suprisingly enough) and don't dry out my lips. The colour is subtle but noticeable. The pink one is the most pigmented but my least favourite of them all. 

I don't reach for these very often any more and I really don't know why as I do like them, I've had them in my make up cycle over the last fortnight and I think these will be staying in the rotation.

I've put them in my make up bag and I'm going to see how often I reach for them.


I have to say I'm loving these again. The Big Red Apple is my favourite and I call tell my tastes have changed as I remember not liking the look of Caramel Apple but When I've worn this over the past few day I have really like it.


They are not super long lasting or highly pigmented but as lip balms they do a pretty good job.

I purposly put these in my make up 18th - 24th April and I'm going to see how many times I read for them, I know this will be a little unfair as I'm wanting to try them again but we'll see as the week goes on how often I reach for them and if they make it two weeks running,

Saturday: None
Sunday: Caramel apple used 3 / 4 times
Monday: Big Red Apple used 4/5 times
Tuesday: Aplelicious Pink used 3/4 times
Wednesday:Caramel apple used 3 / 4 times
Thursday: Big Red Apple used 4/5 times
Friday: Caramel apple used 3 / 4 times

I am keeping the Caramel and Big Red in rotation, the pink really isn't for me. On the second week of using these I only picked up the red one and really missed the caramel one. I think for the next few weeks at least they will be used quite a bit.
