April Favorites

Hello Everyone! I firstly want to apologize for the lack of postings lately. I have been super busy with school and everything, but it is finals week so soon I will be back to posting normal. Today I wanted to show you guys some of the things I have been loving in April. I have makeup and fashion favorites, so lets get this started!

So for my makeup favorites I have 4 different products. First I want to talk about a concealer. This is the Match Perfection concealer by Rimmel. I have it in the shade 230 Fair/Light. I freaking love this stuff. I bought it in the month of April, and I have used it every day. It has really nice coverage, and it is a really nice formula. I love it. The next thing is also by Rimmel, and it is the Scandaleyes Waterproof eyeliner in Black. This stuff is no joke. I have really been in to tight lining lately, it just makes your eyes look bigger and makes your eyelashes look fuller. The only bad thing about tight lining is it can smudge. Luckily this eyeliner is waterproof, and it really means business. This stuff will not budge! It is the bon dot com!

The next thing I wanted to talk about is my Naked 3 Palette by Urban Decay. I have been absolutely loving the shades Dust, which is the 2nd to the left. And the shade Buzz which is in the middle. These two shades are both rosy cool tones, and go so so so perfect together, I just can't get over it. I have been wearing these shadows on the regular. I put Dust all over my lid, and then work Buzz into the crease and outer corner. It is such a beautiful, soft, romantic look, and so perfect for spring!

Last for me beauty favorites is the Bare Essentials Buxom mascara in the shade Blackest Black. I am obsessed with this stuff. I got this one as a deluxe sample from Sephora I believe. And I am so glad I did. The brush on this stuff is absolutely incredible. It separates your lashes and applies such a beautiful coat of mascara onto your lashes. It is just amazing. You need this in your life!

 Now for my fashion favorite this month. I have been really loving the Boyfriend jean look lately. So I set out to find the perfect pair. I got these from American Eagle. They are the Boy Jean Crop. The color is absolutely amazing, which it doesn't really show through in this picture (sorry).  But they are a super light jean color, they almost look white. Ugh! I just love them. They are baggy in all the right areas, and look so cute. I am obsessed!

Alright you guys! I hope you enjoyed this post. Again, I am sorry for the lack of posting lately. I will be coming out with regular posts soon I promise! I hope you all enjoyed this post, let me know what you think down in the comments. Also let me know some of your monthly favorites! Until next time,

Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Hello Everyonee! Today I wanted to do a post with some gift ideas for Mothers day. Now I know that Mothers day has already passed in the UK, but for my people in the States, it hasn't happened yet. So just like my last gift idea post, most of the things I'm going to suggest are from Etsy. Why Etsy you ask? Well, first off I just love Etsy. I love love love supporting small businesses and I also really love how personalized and unique most of the things are on there. So let's get started! Below is a picture of me and my gorgeous mommy in Rome. Just wanted to throw that in there. Happy Mothers day to all you Moms out there! 

I don't know about you, but I always have a hard time finding the perfect card. The Etsy Shop Lily and Val make these amazing chalkboard art cards. They are all handmade, and so so cute! I actually bought this card for my mom,( Sorry if you're reading this mom lol!) and I am very pleased with it. 

This would be a great gift for those sentimental moms. You can find these on Etsy in the shop Wise Creations. It is a floating memory locket, which you can design yourself. For $34.99 you can choose 3 different charms, and up to 6 different birth stones. They have a variety of charms to choose from, from letters, animals, and crosses. I think this is such a cute idea, and it is something that is very unique and personalized. 

If your Mother loves art, this is the perfect gift. The Etsy shop aSmaOriGinal makes custom paintings for every occasion. I bought one of her paintings for my husband and I anniversary, and I was so so pleased. You send her a picture of your mom (or whoever you want to be in the picture) and your siblings, and she will draw the people. It is so customizable that you can tell her what you want down to the outfits the people will be wearing. I absolutely love her work, she is an amazing artist, and also a wonderful person to work with. 

The Etsy shop Little Flower Soap Co., makes handmade bath and body products. This particular gift set includes 1 lavender soap, 1 chocolate lip balm, 1 4oz. grapefruit bath salt, 1 muscle rescue balm, and 1 skin rescue balm. Now for all of these items especially being handmade you would think would be a bit pricey. But no! It's only $25 which is such an amazing and affordable price. The shop owner has almost 900 reviews on her Etsy shop, and has 5 out of 5 stars. She is definitely doing something right, and her products must be amazing! 

Happy Mothers day! I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know down in the comments below if you did, and don't hesitate to leave and questions or anything down there as well! Until next time,

Fickle Fairy Potions Nail Polish Review

Hello Everybodyyyy! So recently I was searching the web, and I came across this awesome website. They have these amazing and unique nail polishes, and of course. I had to get me some. The website is Fickle Fairy Potions. When I ordered them there was a bit of confusion with the shipping, but we emailed back and forth and got everything sorted out. Their customer service was great. and that's always a plus! I got my nail polishes within less than a week, which is record time. 

The two polishes I decided to get are "Illegally Pink" and "Quit your Clownin".  I was immediately drawn to these because they are so unique, I just had to have them. 
Illegally pink is an amazing matte hot pink. On camera it is showing up a little bit coraly, but it's not. It is a true hot pink, and it is amazing! Now I know I could just go out and buy a matte top coat, but I just loved this so much I had to get it. It's pretty sheer with just one coat, but with 3 or 4 coats it looks perfect. In the picture below I used an OPI base coat, and then did about 4 coats on each nail. I love the way matte nails feel, it's like a different feeling than a shiny polish. The good thing about this polish is too is that, you can put a top coat on it and make it a normal shiny nail polish if you want to. 

Quit Your Clownin is probably one of the coolest nail polishes I own. Like just look at it, ummm yes please! It is a white polish with big and little speckles of green, pink, blue, yellow, and red. I first put this on my toes, and it turned out great. Just like a lot of nail polishes that have sparkles like this one, you need a lot of coats to get that right amount of sparkles. The good thing about this polish is that even if you kind of have to "goop" it on to get it how you want it, it dries exceptionally fast.

These polishes speak for themselves. They are both amazing, good quality, and unique. What more could you ask for! Right? Make sure you check out her website, I linked it up top. She has more colors, from more matte colors, sparkle colors, and just normal nail polishes. I hope you guys enjoyed this post! 
Until Next time,

My Favorite Combinations: Makeup

Hello Everybodyyy! I've been on a roll lately with posts, so today I wanted to share with you my favorite combinations. I have never really seen something like this before. But I thought to myself... "I never use just one foundation, or one mascara". So I decided to share with you products that I combine pretty much every day! These are all products that I love love love and have been using for ages. Let's get started!

First i'm going to talk about foundations. These 2 foundations are my holy grail, I always have them, and I just need these always in my life. They are also amazing on their own, but I love the flawless finish they give when I combine them. First is the Loreal True Match Lumi foundation. This foundation give a very fresh face, dewy look. Which is perfect for summer. The Revlon Colorstay Whipped foundation is a full coverage and pretty heavy foundation. When you combine the two you get a full coverage dewy finish. Ummm Amazing! Love these.

Next is powder and bronzer. Both from Rimmel. I love these products. The Stay Matte powder is seriously amazing. I don't have very oily skin, so I don't necessarily need the matte finish, but it is just great for putting over your foundation and making it look extra perfect. The Natural Bronzer I use for contouring. For me finding a good non-orangey drugstore bronzer is close to impossible. When I found this I was so excited, because it is an actual bronze, not too dark or too light. It's just perfect. Love it!

So I don't think that there is any girl in this world that uses just one mascara. Especially for top and bottom lashes. For my top lashes I curl them of course, then I go in with Maybelline Falsies in waterproof. It is very important that it is waterproof because if you're like me and have straight lashes, after curling and putting on waterproof it will help your lashes stay curled. Then I go in with Smashbox Full Exposure mascara, which just gives extra volume and makes them look perfect! On my bottom lashes I use Lancome Hypnose Star. This brush is amazing. It's quite small, and it has a cone shaped brush, which I find perfect for lower lashes. 

For Eyebrows I use two products from E.L.F. I do use a stencil because my brows are annoying and never do what I want them to. By using a stencil I get a perfect arched brow every time. For coloring my brows in I use E.L.F's Brow Kit. It comes with a powder and a cream. I use the powder in my actual hair part of my eyebrow (sounds weird lol), and I use the cream to define the arch and the tail. Love these products, they are the and all of you need them! 

To finish off my look I always have to put some color on my lips. This combination is my go to everyday color. I alway start off with moisturizing my lips with some lip balm, and I of course use an EOS ball. Then I go in with Revlon's Primrose. You can tell I use this quite a lot by the distorted shape of it. Oops. This shade is just amazing. It's the perfect subtle, everyday pink. I swear by it, love it, it is everything. Then of course I have to finish off with a gloss. The NYX Butter Glosses are absolutely amazing, i've talked about them before. They're just amazing. 

Well I hope you liked this post! Like I said i've never really seen anything like this before, so let me know how you liked it! Also,  let me know down in the comments if you would like me to do a my favorite combinations of skincare and hair care! Thanks for reading. Until next time!
