FOTD - #13



I hope everyone is having a wonderful Good Friday so far! I am not up to very much today, just probably going for a drink seeing as the weather is looking nice. 

Today's FOTD is from last Tuesday, and seeing as the weather was sunny I wanted to be quite bright and used my Revlon Berry couture lipstick to add a pop of pink. I absolutely adore this lipstick and will probably do a review soon. 

Other than this, I don't actually have a product list (oops) as I forgot to write one down. I am sorry about that! I'll remember for next time. 

Don't forget to pop back Monday for my next post.
Thank you!

Wishlist: Topshop Make Up


When I'm bored I usually find myself browsing through ASOS and boohoo adding things to a make believe basket in which I could get anything I wanted. In this instance though, I was browsing through Topshop make up and decided I'd share with you my wishlist. 

I've only ever bought a couple of items from topshop's make up range. I have two nail polishes, 1 lipstick which I used to love but then lost, and a velvet lip cream that does not work for me as it's messy. Here however are my other items I'd like to add to that collection:
I've heard quite a bit about these highlighters from Topshop and I think this colour would be really nice for that added highlight. My favourite highlight is 'That Gal' by Benefit, however I'd like a cheaper alternative too which I am still on the look out. Maybe this could be it?
I haven't bought any eye make up from Topshop before, however as soon as I saw this duo I fell in love. I love the colour on the left, it looks such a good summery colour. I like how they include one matte and one shimmer colour. I'd definitely want this if I was going to a festival (which I might be) as instead of taking a palette, this would be perfect aswell maybe a second duo with a neutral shade. It looks small aswell so you can pop it in your bag and won't be worried about anything getting nicked or damaged.
Sort of just fell in love with this for the name. I do however love the colour, and it looks quite similar to a revlon cream blush in Coral Reef, however I'd love to get a powder version too.
So probably a little out of season however I just love the colour of this lipstick. Plus, from when I used to have my topshop lipstick I adored how creamy the texture was. I think this colour is amazing and I'm still on the dark/berry lip all year round. (Check out my dark lip inspiration here)

I find the name a little odd for such a pretty nail colour, however the colour has won me over. I really like my light, pastel style nails at the minute (as I sit here with dark red...) and as much as I love mint colours on nails, I just love this colour. I think this would be my go to summer colour.

What products do you have from Topshop make up?

Video: Evening Look GRWM





Hey everyone. There's a bit of exciting news today (for me, at least) in that I uploaded a youtube video. It's a quick video (just over 2 mins) so I'd really appreciate it if you could give it a quick watch.

The look is an evening date night. I did a darker eye than usual (it's probably not really that dark) and used 2 new products, one was the brow drama and the other was a colour tattoo.

I do hope you enjoy the video and I'll try to post another one soon. 

What do you think of this look?

Product Review: Bleach London Total Bleach Kit


A few months ago I bought the total bleach kit from boots, after having an ok experience with their semi-permanent colour and not being able to go to have my hair done professionally every 8 weeks or so.

The kit includes 2 sachets of bleaching powder, a small bottle of developing lotion, gloves, a small bowl and a mask to use after you've shampooed the hair. I would suggest possibly using a bigger bowl though as this one is quite small and can easily tip over if you aren't careful.

Perhaps a silly mistake, however in the months I had this in my room I lost the instruction leaflet, so didn't have that however we still tried it anyway as I was hating the way my roots looked and was just very good at chopping the top of my hair off in photos.

We left the product on my hair for 20 minutes, as the ends of my hair were still quite blond, and it was only really the roots that needed doing. I think next time we would leave it on for possibly 30-40 minutes (or whatever the instructions say!) as the roots came out a little darker than I wanted.

However, apart from the roots being a little ginger I am really happy with how it turned out. I don't think the mask was very good, however maybe I didn't use enough but I had to rewash my hair as after combing and drying it, it felt like straw. Luckily with a wash after it feels back to normal. 

I would happily buy this product again (and probably will) as it's perfect for a cheaper alternative to going to the hairdressers. I'm sure with some more practise, I can get it looking exactly how I want but for now I'm just so glad my roots have gone!

Have you used this product before? What do you think?

P.S - a FOTD of the after photo will be posted on Friday!

Movie review: The Muppets Most Wanted


First off, I want to apologise for my lack of posts recently. I've been very busy and away from the computer and just not really had time to sit down and write anything. This should resume normally from now though! Thank you for sticking with me.

Another note, is that I'm a huge muppets fan. I was so incredibly happy when Jason Segel brought them back in an incredibly feel good movie. The Muppets most wanted, is about their world tour from the success of the first movie, when their manager Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais) hires theatres next to museums and banks in order to steal objects that lead to the crown jewels.

The movie is fantastic. It's genuinely hilarious and I've not laughed so much at a movie for ages (probably This is the end). There are so many cameos, some of which may go unnoticed they are so quick, however literally everyone in Hollywood turns up at some point and it's brilliantly done, and not in a "oh heres another one" way. 

The music is also fantastic. I'm so glad they got Bret McKenzie back, as he wrote the music for the first movie and won the oscar for Man or a Muppet. The lyrics are so catchy and it's just a real laugh watching some of the cameos dancing along.

So, as you can see I absolutely love this movie. It's perfect for adults aswell as children (although I'd say adults may like it more!) and also you'll probably all be jealous of Miss Piggy's outfits, because they are fabulous.
