Reading Glasses

 Face - Mac Pro longwear foundation, Mac concealer Mac MSF powder, Eyes -Mac all that glitters, Mac shroom. Blush -Topshop neon rose, Prestige Liquid liner, Max Factor False Lash effect, Lips Revlon Blush and Soap & Glory SMP Peach. Nails - Rimmel Beige babe, Top - River Island, Cardi - New Look. Glasses - Primark.

This is my lil attempt at geek chic - The Make ups pretty simple, I really dont think I suit glasses thou lol!!!
This River Island Top sums up Geek chick for me, I love the mustard yellow colour, for anyone who's read The Mortal Instruments (this books up there for me with Harry Potter & Twilight!) It really reminds me of Simon?!!
I'm really enjoying reading at the moment, swapping between Suzanne Collins 'The Hunger Games' and Brian Cox's 'Wonders of the Solar system' Book. I'd love to study astronomy!

Any good book recommendations? xx

Quick Quotes..

Ive seen some great blogs about quotes recently and i've really been inspired by quotes this week. I would love to get a pretty cork board where i can pin inspirational quotes/photos/pictures.
Some of my fave quotes this week are:
"Don't worry about the world coming to an end today... it's already tomorrow in   
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain"
"Live laugh love"
"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken!
'In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.'
Does anyone have any fave quotes :)?

Liptricks :)

Bodyshop lip scuff £8 from

Bodyshop Lip Butter

I'm really passionate about trying to find products that are more natural and kind on my skin. 
Most lip products contain Petroleum based ingredients which are derived from a product used to make petrol (crude oil). Petroleum based products feel moisturising at first, but they dry out your lips after continued use. When your lips are dry you reach for the product again and then get your short term fix. This makes the lip product addictive and you buy more!! 

I've been using the bodyshops lip butter and also the bodyshops lip scuff - which is an lip exfoliator. Burts bee's lipcare is good too!!

January Favourites

Heres a few things that I've been loving throughout the month of Jan, however i've used some of the products a lot longer!

Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara - This is like my Holy grail mascara, I've tried many others and nothing for me ever works better than this!
TRESemme Heat defence - The US version is supposed to be like a CHI dupe, this one may be a different product to the US version but works Amaaazingly on my hair! I use heat daily on my hair and this has really helped to strengthen my hair again.
Dior Pure Poision. Smells Munch! Really florally, clean spring smell. 
Also ive been loving Hollister Solana Beach body mist, it's a mixture of Raspberry, apple and strawberry with jasmine and white musk.
Boots No7 Quick thinking 4 in 1 wipes, No7 Nailvarnish in Totally Teal. Ive used these wipes for about 2 years now, i usually stock up when boots are doing the £5 off No7 products!!
❤ Tweezermans!
Rapidlash - I use a lot of coats of mascara on my lashes almost every day which makes my lashes stubby and weak, this product is quite expensive however has really restored my eyelashes, this is my second box now - the first one lasted me about 4 months. My lashes are now so much thicker and longer.
Primark flower headband and Bird ring
Gossip girl is back on!!
Hot chocolate and Kit Kats (Bite the top and bottom off the kit kat and use it as a straw! It melts all the wafer inside and tastes amazing!!) And last but in no means least I ❤ Hallou(mmm)mi !! Halloumi Cheese tastes soo good!

I've got love for you...

Barry M Dazzle Dust in 76 (yellow) and 18 (Blue Iridescent), Collection 2000 in 06 Viva Vegas, MUA Shade 9 - Pearl, Girls Aloud lashes - Cheryl

Please excuse the bright colours!! I did this look for an 80s themed hen do and really wanted the colours to show!!

Cheryls always been my fave Girls Aloud and so when I was choosing bold lashes for this look, I had to give hers a go!!!
The lashes wouldnt necessarily be something I would wear on a normal night out or daytime however worked perfectly with the 80's theme and neon legwarmers hehe!!!
The downside is the lashes are so thick, they are quite heavy!!!
Ive used MUA (£1!!) purple eyeshadow under my lower lash line, which I bought at superdrug, I'm really impressed at how pigmented this is and would def recommend MUA, I keep their £1 setting powder in my bag which is great to touch up make up during the day!

I love doing strong make up looks, so there will be some more make up posts up in the near future!! I'm also hoping to do a lip product review shortly, and i've bought quite a lot of clothes and make up recently so will do a kind of picture haul!!!
