Top 5 Tuesday | Lipstick




[no flash/natural light]


I have linked all the lippies to their websites:


I know your probably thinking why has she got lots of corals and brights in her 'top 5' if it's now autumn and winter? Well I think even though it's autumn there's nothing wrong with coral/pink lips is there? I will let you be the judge of that but for now these are the lipsticks I wear most.

They are all in fact very moisturizing which is another reason I love them but they are all sold for a reasonable price which doesn't break the bank, well my purse anyway haha. 

As always any questions or requests you have for me can be commented below and I will be sure to get back to you :)

Thanks so much for reading x x

A good moisturizer, toner/cleanser and eye cream is a must.

Coffee or tea?

Neither

What would be the title of your life story if made into a movie?

I don't know never really thought about it, maybe my name or something?

What's been your worst wardrobe disaster?

 When I went through a phase of wearing headbands (I have no problem with them) as I wore a different one everyday and most of them were okay but I had big chunky glittery ones & ones with cartoons on haha I guess I liked them at the time

I'll be honest and say i'm not one to read books, I read magazines and online though. I would have to say John Green as I have read a few of his and really enjoyed them.

It depends on where I am or going but I would say a Lip balm, Mirror (vein) and some sort of food to keep me going

Bridesmaid Hair Tutorial



1. Take a section of hair at the side of your head and start to french braid as normal.

2. As you continue to braid, twist the sections of your hair to make a letter C shape and finish braiding your hair into a singular plait and secure it with a bobble. 

3. Take your braid and twist it up into a bun and secure it using bobby pins/hair clips to make sure it doesn't fall out through out the day and you can also hairspray your hair just for that extra hold. The hairspray I use is shockwaves which you can buy it from superdrug HERE it's really not expensive at all.

I also added a few flowers around her braid as I thought it looked prettier with them, unfortunately I do not own a tiara which would have made this hairstyle look even better but oh well. 

Sorry if I didn't describe that very well ahah

My Favorite Skincare Products


Moisturizers




I love this moisturizer and would agree with everything it says on the bottle.
Since using this my skin looks and feels so much softer and hydrated which is great for me because I have quite dry skin especially in winter. It doesn't feel oily on my skin when I apply it which is always one of the worst things I find in a moisturizer, it also doesn't take too long to sink into your skin which is another bonus.



This also I love and have been using for a little while longer. My mum has always been a fan of nivea moisturizers and so have I. I'll just apply this before I go to bed if I feel like my skin needs that extra bit of oomph.

Toners & Cleansers



 I am a massive fan of this brand and have been for a long time now as I just can't find anything I don't like or won't continue to use after I buy it. Everything I've ever tried from clean and clear has worked for me :) I love this toner it's amazing and I can't recommend it enough, it's perfect for taking makeup off or just even a quick refresh at the end of the day and makes you skin feel cool and clean.




Love,love,love this so much.
It's such a quick way of taking your make up off ( I promise i'm not lazy,I do take great care of my skin ;) ) knowing your not going to skip a step in the process. Because there are no added perfumes in this product its perfect for sensitive skin which I do have but not too bad. This ticks all the boxes for me and also really cheap and is sometimes on offer at boots :)



Yes you guessed I love this a lot too haha. I didn't really know what too expect from this when I first got it but i'm so glad that I picked it up when I did. You basically pump this into your hands and rub it into your face and if you like, your neck (if that floats your boat) and it just sinks right in like a moisturizer which you then take off with warm water. It keeps my skin hydrated all day and you can even wear this under makeup.

Exfoliator



 This is also one of my faves although it may look like I haven't used it for long believe me when I say I have, which is another thing I like about their products is that they last a long time even if you do choose to use them daily. This is a nice routine to do before bed or when your skin doesn't feel at it's best and after using this it feel cooler and smooth. I just can't fault this at all and i'm defiantly going to be re-purchasing this after it runs out.


I hope you found this post in some way helpful, I know i'm not the best at describing things but i'm sure i'll get better.

The Knitting & Stitching Show | Alexandra Palace

(warning very picture heavy post)
















A few days ago I went to London for a textiles exhibition and I absolutely loved it as it was right up my street. It was full of cute and inspirational hand made trinkets and beautiful art work. I would love to go again as I enjoyed it so much and found it helpful as well as educational. Click here which will take you to their website.
