Outfit Post :))

Thank you sooo much for following! Something is happening to my blogger, its being weird when i post comments, silly thing!

I've had such a busy week and i thought i would make an outfit post and show what I've been up to.
The college had a summer party in The Holiday Inn, in Stevenage where i live, and i met Arg from The Only Way is Essex. I don't watch that show but my mum and dad are mental for it and so is my sister haha, and of course i wouldn't pass up the opportunity for meeting him. I think he was a little frightened of me, in my unsober way stroking his face and a crazy grin for the picture that the college took, ooops not looking forward to seeing that! I went with two of my friends Leah and Sade and they both looked lovelyyy!

I wore a blouse from New Looks that was cream and had a lace detail on the shoulder and some high waisted floral shorts from George Asda! Then some cagey brown heels from Primark and clutch bag from DPs. It was a really good night, great way to end the year and start the long 11 week summer!

Also, helllloooo nice weather! How surprising is that!! After rain for 3 days there was a heat wave and Stevenage hit 33 degrees ah it was lovely! Got mee a tan! Because the weather was so lovely me and my boyf Luke went out for a picnic and then with his family to this lovely fishing place about half an hour from Stevenage.
I wore a strapless casual blue play suit from Primark that was ten pound, barginnn! And when it got a little cooler in the evening in the shade i wore my denim waist jacket from Miss Selfridge. Oh, and of course my River Island floral bag that i love! Its such a strange shape i just love it!

thanks for reading and following! Will blog post,

Gettin' down and dirty in the MUD

Pleaseee follow :))

Recently i have been looking for a weekly mud masks that work well and isn't too expensive! I was looking in Superdrug and came across Superdrug Aloe Vera Mud Mask. I've tried some of Superdrugs own brand products they've been great. I was so impressed with this mud mask!

It tingled a bit at first but then felt so soothing and relaxing, made me want to have a sleep it was lovely! The mask is nice and thick and doesn't have an over powering smell. Easy to put on and isn't irritating at all! It was really easy to wash and left my skin feeling so clean and fresh

After the mask, my skin felt tighter and my pores seemed small, my face felt so soft and looked clearer with a brighter complexion. I am so pleased with this, I'm definitely buying more of it! It hasn't made me break out in spots like i know some others do, i definitely recommend this to anyone!

Make Me Up; My daily face

Thankyouuu for following :))

I thought i would do a post to show what i do to my face every day and say what products are best, what i have tried and what i would recommend.

After my skin care routine i use GOSH Touch of Velvet Primer. After watching a video by Tanya Burr called "Make Up your Mind Monday" i decided to try it out myself after seeing all the amazing reviews it has got. And i completely agree with what she says, it really is an amazing product! It makes my face feel so soft and i love the feeling of spreading it on my face. I would definitely recommend this to anyone! Its fantastic!

Once i have put the primer on i use Olay Complete Care touch of Foundation. I find it really difficult to find any foundation or powders that sit right on my skin and don't make me look pale, too dark or orange. Not even Sleek has the right colour for me; i find this really strange because they a known for having such a wide variety of colours. I really like the Olay touch of Foundation range. I find it really light and it gives me great coverage! The only thing i don't like about it is that it has SPF 15. I know its important to protect the skin etc but i find that when its a hot day my face feels a bit greasy.

I usually wear Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer under my eyes. I think its really good and gives my eyes a bit more brightness and makes me look fresh. I use the darkest shade and it suits my skin really well. Although i have read bad reviews about it, i find it blends in with my tinted moisturisers really well and i like the way it stays on my face.

I'm currently using Collection 2000 Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner. Out of the things i use daily, this by far is the worst product i have used. It doesn't last 24 hours, although its quick drying it a bugger to get off and i find it so difficult to use! It comes out weak and is just a really disappointing product. I have read good reviews on the product but i find the length of it just far to difficult to use.

Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara is what I've been using for over a year now, although its a good product I'm looking to try something else. I'm getting fed up with the way my eye lashes look so I'm looking to change it up a bit and try something different. Its a brilliant mascara though and does all that it says on the tube. The only thing i don't like is that it prints and sometime i find it crumbling off under my eye. I think i will try a different brand next time

After looking at this picture, i don't even look massively different - that's embarrassing ha ha

Thanks for ready,

maaa main man BARRY M

Out of my 65 nail varnishes, my all time favourite is Barry M! I love the colours and they are the price is so good for what it is, i have 23 Barry Ms - Yes maybe it is some kind of obsession but i think they are amazing! The new crackle effect nail varnishes are so easy to use and always look good, they dry quickly and look great with every colour.

I try and get pictures of the nails i do, some are a bit blurry but its really to show the people whose nails i do what is available to them and just for me to document it really :)

I honestly cant decide what my favourite colour is because there are so many and it depends on what mood I'm in, i love doing nail art as well although it takes me ages! I definitely recommend Barry M! They have a massive variety of colours and they are usually on offer, Boots were doing any two for £5.00 *including the instant nail effects, Superdrugs were doing any two for £4.99 *excluding the instant nail effects.

I try to be creative with the instant nail effects, using them will different colours and just the tips of my nails like the photo below, so see if you can change it up?

Ahh, Barry M your a babe for creating these amazing Nail Paints!
Soo get painting,
