everyday make up

urban decay naked pallet, benefit high beam, benefit some kind of gorgeous foundation faker (medium), benefit bad gal lash, maybelline one by one, rimmel london scandal eyes, l'oreal super liner, benefit erase paste (light), urban decay brow box (honey pot), urban decay eyeshadow primer

This is all the make up I wear when I can actually be bothered/have time to put any on. For my face I use Benefits 'some kind of gorgeous' foundation faker, its a cream foundation that dry's into a powder finish, then under my eyes and on any blemishes I use Benefits erase paste. I fill and define my eyebrows with Urban Decays brow box in honey pot. I use Urban Decays eyeshadow primer on my eyelids and use half baked, smog and virgin out of the naked pallet over the top. I layer mascaras all the time, I don't usually stick to one mascara brand, I buy which ever is the newest when I run out. I then line my eyes with L'oreal super liner in black and put Benefit high beam on under my brow bone and sometimes on my cupids bow.

jolen cream bleach

This stuff is the best bleach I have ever tried. It bleaches and excess hair you might have anywhere. I use it for the hairs on my arms, kind of strange but I don't like the look of hairy arms and shaving them would just be creepy. Its also good for if you have dark hair above your top lip (shh) and a better alternative than getting it waxed. It comes with a powder accelerator and cream bleach that you just mix together and put on where ever you need. The 'tray' thing it comes with is a bit pointless because usually the powder just falls off the side. I really think it makes the hairs obviously lighter, thinner and it makes them less noticeable even when it wears off in about 3 weeks. I'm sure you can use this any where on your body, it really makes a difference if you are uncomfortable with any noticeable excess hair.

coloured jeans

new look / zara

Coloured jeans are so 'in' for spring, all the shops I go into have them. They have them in every colour imaginable, in every tone you could ever ask for and in every style, you're spoilt for choice! My favourite are the lilac ones because they're a bit acid washed and they fit really nicely. What do you think of them? Too bold or not?

february favourites

Batiste Blonde Dry Shampoo - This is the best dry shampoo I have ever tried, it really makes your hair feel like you have just washed it, perfect for when you don't have time to wash your hair properly.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - My erase paste has been making my mascara rub off onto my eyelids so I have been using this to stop the creasing even if I'm not wearing eyeshadow.

Jessica Soaking Up The Sun - This nail polish is so good, so much better than OPI! It dries super fast and this colour is the nicest hot pink I have ever found I can't stop wearing it.

Modern Family - I have talked about this loads of times but I love it. Its probably one of the best shows ever. I have my family obsessed with it, we have been watching it non stop.

Unblock Me - Such a good game! I did get to level 900 and something once, its addictive. 

Benefit High Beam - I have started using this under my eyebrows and it makes them look more arched with out having to painfully pluck away.

Lana Del Rey - Her album is fabulous.

Urban Decay Naked Pallet - I have been getting tired of just wearing the same boring make up everyday so I started using my naked pallet to make my eyes look less plain.

Superficial Girls - I love Carlinn's blog, her style is so summery and perfect. I am incredibly jealous of her constant tan and that she lives in South Africa.
