August Favourites

Whats up readers! 

Haven’t talked to you for a while, been busy… kinda ;)

So basically for this blog post, I was thinking an August Favourites. I sometimes watch these on Youtube/read them on people’s blogs. But I have never written one myself, and I thought why not.

As tomorrow is the last day of August, I am showing you my favourites from this month.

Hay Day – This is an app on my Phone where you have a farm and you have to do orders and look after animals etc. Its extremely addictive and I am on level 19. My dad is very addicted to it and is already is on 30 something.

My Hair – Yesterday I got my hair cut, and for me I had no idea what i wanted to do apart from go shorter than what I was. At the start I was thinking a long bob kinda thing, but I just decided to take off 4 inches. This too me is sooooo much ;)

This is a before picture (about a week or two ago) -

I now can’t wait till I get it cut even shorter :P

Tara’s Smile – She started off as an ‘Instagramer’ and now does youtube videos too. Her photos are fab and her videos are also fab. Go follow her!

Products from KIKO – I have two or three products already from KIKO and already love them! However I purchased their Compact powder and Ph lip enhancer. The powder is really good and lasts for quite a number of hours. I would have to re-aply if it was something like a 12 hour day. The Ph lip enhancer, brings out the natural colour of your lips and is a lip balm with spf too.

Maybelline – Baby skin is a face primer which helps my make up stay all day and it is so good. Enough said!

Mac –  When I went to Portsmouth I went into The Cosmetics Company Shop where you can buy expensive make-up brands like Mac, Bobbi Brown and Clinique, cheaper. I have never brought any mac before and have always wanted too and now I have! I got a blush in ‘Pink Tea’

Confidence

Hi Readers!

As you can see by the title, todays post is all about confidence. Its a bit of a different style post today.

For me confidence is a big part of my life and anyone’s really. At school my favourite subject is drama and plan to go on to teach it later in life. But for anyone who knows drama well, knows you have to have confidence. however you don’t just need it for drama and the arts. A few of my friends aren’t very confident whether it be over boys or just walking around school without blushing too much and going red.

So here are some tips if you want some confidence:

  • Be confident in yourself, for example if you don’t like the way you look put post it notes on your mirror and tell yourself you are beautiful the way you are. 
  • If your in school and have bullies lurking around, that like to pick on people. Ignore them, they are so not worth it! I know it’s easier said than done, but you have to ignore them to stop them from bringing you down.
  • When you walk around, back straight, stand tall! Its not only good for your posture but good for when you want confidence. 
  • Be Happy! Yes there are bumps in the road, whether it be big or small and trust me I know and have many more to come, but you have to keep smiling! It will increase your confidence and smiles are gorgeous! 

I hope you liked this style of post.

Talk to you later 

Life

Hi guys!

So I know, my posts have been lacking, but I’m sorry, however I have had a lot on my plate.

Over the last month, I have been part of the Surrey Youth Drama festival with my school, I have had DofE final expedition, (where we got lost and i got an injury). Stats GCSE and mocks, then induction days for year 6’s, clearing out my Nan’s house, then having to go through the emotion of knowing there are new people in that house.
But I promise to write a new one soon. But I need to think of something to blog about. ;)

Till then xx

Make-up Routine

Hi Readers! Sorry for the lac of posts! Writers block and too much school!

But basically this is my make-up routine on days i can be bothered to wear it!

To start off with I moisturise my face with Daily Smooth Body Butter from soap and glory. I get really dry skin around my nose and this really helps!

I then go onto my foundation which is Rimmel Match Perfection in number 101 and use my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. I either have a full coverage or I just put it under my eyes etc.

Afterwards I do my eyebrows with MUA powder, eyebrow ‘spooly’ and a brush. To get a good shape brow, I brush them threw before the powder then brush them through again.

I then move onto my eyes, where today I used my technic pallet and went for a subtle pink then my favourite eyeliner ever which is the Maybeline Gel Eyeliner. It is absolutely amazing and lasts all day and does not budge at all! I go for quite a thick cat eye.

As a highlighter I use a technic Blucher since it is a pale peach colour and works really well under the eyebrow to give it definition.

To finish off my eye look I curl my lashes then add my mascara – Great lash mascara from Maybeline.

I then powder my face with stay matte powder and then bronze it up with natural bronzer, both from Rimmel.

I add a little blusher from sleek then finished it all off with Tanya Burr’s Heart Skipped a Beat Lipgloss. Here are the pictures of products:

Eurovision Song Contest 2014

So last night on the 10th of May, the Eurovision Song contest took place last night in Copenhagen, Denmark. The whole show was absolutely fabulous (fabelhaft, in german) ;) and the majority of the songs were incredible. Obviously you got the songs which were very cheesy like the song ‘Cheesecake’ by Belarus and then you got the songs which I absolutely loved. These included -

Iceland – ‘No prejudice’

Norway – ‘Silent Storm’

Malta – ‘Coming Home’

Ukraine – ‘Tick Tock’

Sweden – ‘Undo’

And of course the Uk’s own Molly who sung ‘Children of the Universe’ which was amazing and I would suggest you check it out if you haven’t heard it yet.

Then at the end of the night the hosts announced the winner and it was Austria with Conchita singing ‘Rise like a Phoenix’

Well done Austria! Till next year.

Saturday 12th April 2014

Hello Readers!

So this blog post is going to be about my day yesterday – almost like a day in a life post. So to start off with I obviously woke up and had some breakfast before getting dressed. I decided to wear my such fun t-shirt a blue skirt with white polka dots and my Docs. And I did my make up like normal – winged eyeliner ;) 

Me and my family then go to our local big Marks and Spencer and adjoining Tesco (where we went for lunch) 

Image

^ my lunch ;) was good!

We then got a few bits in Marks and then I had to get some Polo tops for school. Which was just fun. NOT!

Then it was time for me and my lovely mother to go up to London because I was seeing Miranda live at 8pm. We got the train and there were these really annoying posh people next to us. We then found out they would be going to Miranda too and started doing some quotes which was not cool. Once we were in London, we got the tube to Oxford street to get a few bits and we popped into the disney store and I got a picture with Anna from Frozen

Image

(Please ignore my face). We then tried to find the Superdrug and after a long time we did find it and I managed to find it and I got

Image

The colour is – Heart Skipped a Beat 

Image

They were on special offer ;)

It was then time to get back on the Tube to the O2, but before we went in we got something to eat and drink form Costa

Image

Once we finished we went in and I got some T-shirts and a program and then to our seats!

Image

Words can not describe how amazing she was and I have a secret…

when she came on, I almost cried! (Out of happiness of course) ;) and then it was time to go home. An enjoyable day with my mum and great bonding time. 

Thanks for reading, 

Love Lucy xx

Spring Nail Colours!

So another post from me today! Wow crazy ;)

My sister suggested I do a post on Nail Varnishes and I thought since its spring I will do a post on Spring Nail Colours! 

Image

From left to right – Mint Green, Mango, Prickly Pear, Passion Fruit.

The majority of my nail collection is Barry M and they are the best polishes ever! They stay on for at least over a week and doesn’t chip. However I’m the sort of person who will wear darker colours in the Spring/Summer and brighter colours in Autumn/Winter, just because I don’t always follow fashion trends. But I might try to wear these colours because it will go with outfit ideas I have in my mind. For example some flamingo shorts I got yesterday with a yellow top and wear the ‘Prickly Pear’ nail varnish. Oooh spring is going to be exciting!

The only bad thing about nail polish is that I can’t wear it to school, which just annoys me.

Happy reading, Follow if you like

Lucy xx
