Rimmel vs Rimmel

I'm a big lover of foundations and I have to say that Rimmel make some great ones. I haven't yet tried the ever so famous Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation yet, but I have tried the Match Perfection and Lasting Finish foundations. I've been using both of these foundations for well over a year now so I thought it would be interesting to compare them and show you which one I actually prefer!

Review // Seventeen Pwhoarr Paint Under Eye Concealer!!

Recently whilst out shopping, I decided that I needed a new under eye concealer, as my current one just didn't seem to do the job as well as I wanted it to. After seeing so many people raving about the Seventeen Phwoarr Paint I decided to take advantage of the Boots 3-for-2 deal and buy this concealer. I picked up this concealer in the shade Fair and have been using it everyday for almost 2 weeks now, so I feel that I can give a good honest view for any of you looking to purchase a new concealer!

University Room Tour!

I LOVE ready these types of posts as I'm a very nosy person, so I thought it would only be suitable for all you nosy people out there to see my uni room tour. I've been here since September but only have about 2 months left in this room as uni finishes in May, so I knew I needed to do this room tour soon. Also it made me give my room a little bit of a clean...just for you!

OOTN: Family Meal

Yesterday was my Grandad's 80th, so to celebrate my family and I went out for a meal and it was a great night filled with yummy food...mmmmm! As we didn't head anywhere fancy, I wanted to wear something quite simple that was a little more dressy than my usual everyday style, as well as incorporate a little bit of Spring into my outfit - Spring is my favourite month in terms of fashion! I hope you understood that, haha!

The Makeup Mishaps Tag

After my photos that I took for a university room tour today turned out pretty rubbish (not happy), I decided to search through some blogs to find something quick but fun to write about. After a few minutes I came across this tag which was created by Becca at beccasfashionandlife and decided that I had to do it. It's a really interesting tag and some of the questions were actually quite hard to answer, but make sure to take a look at my answers and see if you agree or not!!

HAUL // Getting Ready For Spring

Hello Everyone!
This weekend I decided to pop out shopping - so much for the spending ban I said I'd have not long ago...ooops. To be honest though, I needed a few essentials for Spring and Summer which I managed to get a few of, although I did come back with some things I didn't exactly need...oh well. This is a pretty small haul but I couldn't resist showing you my new things and make sure to tell me if you like/have tried anything below!

50 Random Facts About Me!

Asides from beauty and fashion posts, I love reading posts that help me to get to know my fellow bloggers a little bit better, which sometimes show just how much we have in common. So I thought it would only be right to do the 50 random facts about me as I enjoy reading them so much myself. Hopefully you'll enjoy reading these somewhat strange facts and maybe you'll end up relating to some of them!!

Spring Has Sprung // OOTD

I'm sure if you live in England, you've been enjoying the nice weather today like myself, which is surprising as I was bundling up in chunky jumpers a couple of days ago!! So obviously being a blogger, I made use of the good weather and natural lighting to take pictures, today an OOTD. Of course it's not warm enough for me to be wearing shorts or anything (although I have seen many people wearing them), but it's just nice to not have to layer up in long sleeved tops and coats. Also I've been able to wear my new cardigan which I haven't had chance to with the cold weather, yay!

Oscars 2014 // The Best Dressed

Now I know it's been 5 days since the Oscars (a little bit late with this), but I couldn't resist writing a quick little post on my 5 best dressed stars of the night! Also can I just say how great I though the Oscars were this year. I think it was mainly down to Ellen DeGeneres who did an awesome job at presenting - she seemed to make everyone feel so relaxed and come on, she's just hilarious!!
So if you'd like to see who I've chosen (which I know you do) then just carry on reading...

February Faves!

Can you believe we're already in the third month of 2014? No, me neither!
Anyway, today I am coming to you with my Feb faves and honestly I haven't really bought that much in these 4 weeks, so most of these are rediscoveries for me.
So let's begin.

A New Obsession // High End Beauty Wishlist

First of all, I'd like to apologise for not blogging for an entire week; I was so busy with uni and have been ill this entire week, but I'm getting back into the swing of things now!!
Anyway, I've recently really been obsessing over some high end products. I actually don't own many myself; I just have a few MAC products and a few random bits and bobs, but I'm very sceptical about paying such a hefty price on a product that could simply not be worth it. So I've done quite a bit of research to find out which products I think would actually be worth it.
I've chosen my top 6 products that I would really like to try at some point this year, so continue reading if you'd like to find out more!
