Makeup Palettes Great For Travelling

You may or may not have known this but I am currently in Jamaica with my family for a holiday. As much as I love reading travel posts all year round, I figured now that we are coming into the holiday season, I might as well squeeze a few travel blog post. I did a similar blog post to this last year (linked here) but I wanted to do it again since I have found a few more products that are perfect for travelling with.

First Impressions On The Famous Hoola Bronzer

This bronzer is probably the most hyped bronzer I have ever came across and I have only just tried it. Believe me or don't but these past few weeks I have been trying this out to find out whether it is really that good. Obviously there are mixed opinions but keep on reading to find out what I think.

My Current Fitness Routine

At the moment, I have been trying to workout more and with my holiday right around the corner I really want to tone up. I asked on twitter what you wanted to see in terms of fitness and you all wanted a routine so I thought that I would try and sum up my weekly fitness routine.

Starting off with the little things that you probably don't think about but count as exercise. I am still in high school so I walk to and from the bus stop five out of seven of the days plus PE is still compulsory in my year so I do a 50 minute session once a week and it usually is a high intensity sport, like rounders or tennis.
I also have two dogs, so I tend to walk those a lot, usually four times on the weekend and three times during the week. The walk is usually a bit of sprinting and walking which takes about 20 minutes.

Collective Beauty Haul

I have been doing a lot of shopping recently and I have already done a clothing haul (linked here) so now I thought that I would follow it up with a beauty haul. A lot of these products are quite simple and I guess you could say boring, but I wanted to keep it real and just share everything I bought.
I am just going to start off with some hair and skincare which you may not class as all being beauty but I am just going to, for the sake of this post.
Starting with Primark, which I love for just super simple pieces, I got a pack of clear elastic bands because I always use these when I braid my hair but as soon as I have used them once I throw them in the bin, so I was in need of a new pack and in Primark they are only £1.
I then got a pack of bobby pins because I am going on holiday soon and if I just throw some bobby pins in the bottom of my toiletries bag, I am just going to loose them, so I saw this and decided to pick it up as it was again, only £1. I particularly like this pack because it comes with a mini clear container so I can use it when I come back and refill it since I always loose my bobby pins.
Final thing from Primark is their two packs of makeup wipes for £1. I love these makeup wipes so much, not because I use them to remove makeup, but because I love them for cleaning off swatches or cleaning makeup products before I take blog photos. They are super cheap, last a fair amount of time and do the job great. This is a staple purchase from Primark for me so I would highly recommend you try some, especially if you are a blogger.

Current Base Routine - No Foundation

With the weather getting warmer my makeup is beginning to change, especially my base. I have been going for something a little lighter in coverage and skipping out foundation so I thought I would share with you my current base routine. Obviously I still change it up, but for this season, this is my go-to.
I skipped primer for this post just because I am still yet to find one that I love enough to call my favourite so I am still yet to share that with you. Obviously like I said before, this routine requires no foundation so straight on with concealer.

Clothing Haul!

With Summer fast approaching and my holiday getting closer and closer, I have been buying some new bits and pieces for my wardrobe. It has been a while since I have done a haul on my blog so let me know whether you would like to see more.
First think is from Miss Selfridge and it is this Pale Blue Square Neck Crop Top. I bought this because I just thought it was a super basic piece my wardrobe was missing. This would look great layered in winter or just with a pair of shorts for summer. It was only £8 and the fit of it is really lovely, it also comes in many colour but I really loved the pale blue.

What Exams Have Taught Me

I know that a lot of you wanted me to do a revision post but so many people have been doing them recently that I want to do something different. Since I am in Year 10, I have just had some mock exams and I wanted to share some of the things that the exams have taught me. Let me know whether you agree with any of the things that I have chosen to mention.
