Things I Would Save In A Fire

I recently did a poll on Twitter asking which post you would rather see and this one seemed to be the most popular so here it is. If you wanted to see the other posts don't worry because I will get round to doing them all at some point.
This idea has been floating around recently, it is when you put yourself in the scenario of your house burning down and you would pick five things to save. I tried to include a mix of both sentimental and practical things and realistically this is what I would save.

1. Handbag
I guess you could call this a cheat but I wouldn't. My handbag is always waiting right by my door, ready to just pick up and go so I would include everything inside it as one thing. In my handbag I keep all of my essentials from my phone to headphones, to my purse, to deodorant, to pen and paper, to a book so I think this is quite a practical thing to rescue in a fire. I have things to help keep me sanitized, occupied and alive for that matter so this would definitely be my first product.

Currently In My Makeup Bag...

With a new season comes a fresh new makeup bag and so I thought I would share some products I think are perfect for spring.

LA Girl Pro Conceal Concealer
I recently pulled this concealer back out of my draw to give in another shot. At first it did not impress me too much because it was quite average but I am now loving it. It is a medium coverage and the shade is super pale and great for highlighting. I like to use this both with and without foundation because it is super lightweight which I love for the spring season we are coming into.

Spring/ Summer Playlist!

The UK top 40 is awful and I think a lot of you will agree with me when I say that. Even though there is an odd song that is good in the charts, most of the music I listen to on a regular basis is a little (or a lot) older. Saying that, I have chosen ten songs that are sort of current and perfect for a spring/ summer playlist.

Go-To Spring Makeup

Since transitioning into a new season, my makeup has been gradually changing also but it has sort of settled for the time being, so I wanted to share my current makeup routine. This has been the makeup that I have been wearing a lot recently and it includes a few new products so I thought that I would make a blog post out of it.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics X Manny MUA Skin Frost First Impressions!

You probably do not know this but I am a huge fan of Manny MUA, he is one of my favourite youtubers and I think he is amazing. When I found out he was collaborating with Jeffree Star Cosmetics I knew I had to pick something up. I know a lot of people have a lot of different opinions about Jeffree but I personally like him a lot and you may not like him but you cannot deny the superb quality of his products.
Without going on for too long, they released two liquid lipsticks and a highlighter. The two liquid lipsticks didn't look like shades I would wear so I opted for the highlighter and after much request I am going to review it. This is my first Jeffree Star Skin Frost so I am still very new to the formula but I have gathered a few thoughts that I want to share with you.

Let's Chat GCSE's, Hobbies and Half Term

I can't remember the last time I just sat here and had a little chat, I don't even think this is going to be interesting to any of you but I did just want to give a little life update.

Currently, I am on half term, two weeks school free which I am so super excited about. Saying that, I have got a bunch of coursework and revision to be getting on with. Art coursework is totally kicking my butt right now but I hope that it will pay off one day. The piece I am currently working on is an A2 canvas of my granddad in acrylic paint, I am finding it difficult but it is coming a long slowly. For revision, I am slowly easing myself into it, one subject at a time. Since I am in year 10, as soon as I come back I have four full days of exams almost like mocks so I am putting taking it very seriously at the moment. If you are interested in a revision post and some of my tips then do let me know in the comments and I will get that done for you.

Pink Spring Makeup Look!

I feel like it has been a while since I have done a makeup look so I wanted to create something very spring and a little colourful for today's blog post. Do let me know in the comments whether you prefer these sorts of pictures as well, I am a little undecided.

Drugstore Beauty Products You Need!

Oh, don't you just love a good drugstore product? From hair to skincare to makeup, you can find great beauty products that cost less then your lunch. I am constantly trying new things from the drugstore because as much as I love an expensive lipstick, I love a bargain too. When deciding the products to feature in this post, I had to think long and hard but I am very proud of myself for narrowing it down.
I feel as though everyone loves this product, there is a small margin of people who hate the residue it leaves, but all in all it is well loved by many. Dry shampoo is a staple in any lazy persons hair care routine and so something that does the job while being super cheap, it is a win win. Batiste is my favourite dry shampoo, I do love COLAB but I find that works best for adding texture, but for absorbing oil, Batiste is the best. I have mid-brown hair so the fact that it is white when I first apply it isn't too much of a pain, I find it find to rub in and the colour does disappear accept I do know people with darker hair struggle to work with this, so do bare that in mind. Overall this is a bargain, and I would not try any other pricey dry shampoo because this is all I need, it is about £4 for a huge can that will last you half of the year, so I would definitely recommend.

March Favourites!

As it is the start of a new month that means another favourites. I have not been try out as many things as I would have liked to but I have got a few things to share today.
I have been trying to wear eyeliner some more but I find that black is a little harsh so I have been wearing brown kohl liner a lot. The LA Girl Endless Auto Eyeliner in Brown is the one I have been wearing. It is super creamy, you can smudge it, very pigmented and it is super affordable. The packaging is kind of annoying but I would definitely recommend it if you are in need of a good kohl liner.
