Review: Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara!

Hello Lovelies,
Today I felt like doing a review on the Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara's. I know that these have actually been out for a while but I've only just gotten them in the last month or two. I have two of these mascaras, the black waterproof and black brown (non-waterproof).
Want to know what I think?? Then carry on reading...

Have I Really Been Blogging For A Month?!

I can't quite believe marks 1 month since I plucked up the courage to start this blog. I feel like I've achieved so much in such a short amount of time from blogging, I mean, I hit 250 Bloglovin followers yesterday, have over 100 Twitter followers after this past week and feel like I've designed a much more professional looking blog. When I started my blog, I honestly never thought people would be interested in reading it, especially this early in my blog. I'm just so appreciative for anyone who's taken the time out of their day to read a blog post of mine or even follow my blog. Thank you sooo much, it means the absolute world to me!!
I never realised how much I would grow to love blogging, but it's become a part of my daily routine now and I just love being able to meet other bloggers because everyone I've spoken to in the blogging community is just so nice. I only hope that I'll be able to talk to more of you and make some more blogging friends, haha!
Hopefully I'll be blogging for years and years to come, as I'm enjoying it so much and there are many more things that I would love to achieve with this blog! I'm also hoping that soon I'll be able to hold a giveaway in order to give back to my wonderful readers!! <3
Also, sorry I haven't posted a beauty or fashion post in almost a week now, I've been a little busy with uni and designing the new layout for my blog, but expect some new posts up soon - I plan to be taking a lot of pictures during the weekend.
I hope to continue writing posts that everyone will enjoy reading and if you have any requests of posts you would like to see or enjoy reading, please tell me!
Again, thank you!!
Lots of Love

New Design! What Do You Think??

This is just going to be a quick post but today I decided to redesign the entire layout for my blog. I felt that my blog wasn't up to standard with a lot of blogs out there now and I needed to make it look a bit more professional and that's what I've tried to do.
I decided to go for a white and greenish blue design and stick to that colour theme throughout and feel that this is a nice change compared to other blogs as although I do love many, many other blogs designs out there, I don't tend to see many people using this colour in their layouts. It's quite a simple look but that's what I was going for - I didn't want it to look cluttered in away.
I'd like to think that it looks nice to everyone else as I'm planning to keep my blog looking exactly the same for years and years now, because I don't think it's a great idea to change layouts/designs all the time (at least in my opinion) so I thought I may as well change it in the early stages of my blog!
Basically I'd love to know what you think of the new design of my blog. Do you think I should keep it like this?? I'd really appreciate your feedback!
Lots of Love

Top 10 Places I'd Love To Visit!

So today's post is a little different from my usual beauty or fashion posts, it's the top 10 places that I would love to travel to...maybe this post should be called a Travelling Wishlist? Now, I absolutely LOVE travelling (except for the flying part). I've been fortunate to go to a few countries within Europe and some states in the US and after my holiday in the US two years ago, it really got me thinking about other places I'd love to travel to. So I decided to choose the top 10 places and share them with everyone.

Also just so you know, these aren't necessarily places you'd expect the typical 19-year-old to want to travel to (I don't really care for party holidays) and also I'm sure some you may have never heard of a few of these!! Maybe this could give you some ideas if your planning a holiday soon and want to go somewhere just carry on reading!

My Everyday Natural Drugstore Makeup!

Hello everyone!
Today I thought I would post my current everyday/natural makeup look which consists of only drugstore/high street brands. These aren't necessarily the same products I use everyday, sometimes I like to use some more high-end products (well, the few I have) or some drugstore products. These products are probably my most used at the moment and are at least what I used for today's makeup!
So lets begin!

Review: Revlon Matte & Lacquer Balms

Hello everyone!
As you may have seen in my recent haul, I picked up two of the Revlon Matte & Lacquer Balms, simply because I'd heard great things about these and I love the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains so thought why not give these a go! I thought I'd try them each a few times before I posted a review on them so carry on reading if you want to see what I thought...

January Favourites

Happy February...

So as this is my first monthly favourites, I've decided to set up different categories where I will choose a different thing each month - how long I will do it like this I don't know, but I think it will be a great way for me to do my monthly favourites for a while.
Take a look below to see all of my favourites for the month of January!

A Small Haul

So...yesterday I went shopping with some of my family and got a few bits and bobs that I thought I may as well share with the blogging world. This is quite a small haul because I didn't want to spend too much but I'm so excited about each item I bought!! I also went to Nando's for the first time in my life - a big deal for me, haha! Anyways, make sure to carry on reading this post to see what I got!
