NYX Lip liner and Soft Matte Lip Cream Review!

14398152_332087850471059_1442604764_n

While on a shopping in Barnsley (a town near where I live) I popped into boots and spotted an NYX counter! I don’t have one where I live so I was sooo excited when I spotted it! Something I have been wanting to try by NYX for ages is their soft matte lip creams because I have heard so much about them. I had to stop myself from buying the entire counter haha so in the end I picked up these 2 items: The soft matte lip cream in the shade 06 Instanbul and the retractable lip liner in the shade soft pink.

Retractable lip liner (soft pink)- I am not a massive fan of retractable lip liners just because I feel like they don’t last as long as pencil liners but since I loved the colour of this I got it anyway. I love this lip liner because it is quite soft, when you apply this it glides on the lips and doesn’t drag. The formula is really good and doesn’t smudge when its on.

Soft matte lip cream (Istanbul)- I am in love with the shade of this lipstick! Its like a pinky nude shade and perfect to pair with neutral makeup looks. I like the formula of this because its not too drying and it doesn’t crack once it dries which is a problem I have with some matte liquid lipsticks. This is more like a cream as the name suggests, which I love.

Those are the swatches of the lip liner and matte lip cream! The lip cream isn’t quite that dark in person its slightly lighter but its soooo nice I love it!

These are the first products I have tried by NYX and I am very impressed. Both products stayed on really well and are really good quality for an affordable price at £5.50 each.

Have you ever tried any products by NYX? If you have any reccomendations please make sure to let me know in the comments below!

Things I Am Grateful For.

12971013_251365725209939_6078327683887094209_o

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely day. Todays post as you can see is going to be about things that I am grateful for! I have been thinking a lot recently and I tend to worry about little things that don’t really matter like ‘not having enough money’ or about what people think of me. But what I sometimes forget to do is think about the things that I am grateful for. So here we go..

  1. My partner. He is always there for me, he always makes me feel good about myself and when I feel down he is always there to make me feel better.
  2. I have a secure income
  3. I am taking driving lessons which I love
  4. I have the most gorgeous little dog and she always fusses me and makes me feel loved
  5. My family
  6. Life! There are so many possibilities, we are all here on this journey together
  7. My blog and blogging friends!
  8. Music
  9. Good health- I am very grateful for this! This week I was quite worried about a lump on my head that had got a little bigger  and I was really worried about it. I made a doctors appointment and the doctor checked it, everything turned out to be fine. I was so relieved!
  10. Laughter. Don’t you just feel so much better when you laugh?

I have so many things to be grateful for, sometimes its just nice to sit and think about all the things you have.

*Update*

I have recently started writing a column for ‘Love from’ magazine, it is a quarterly lifestyle magazine by Florence Matthews. Its so exciting to be writing a column for them!

Not much else has happened recently apart from that! Just the usual: Shopping and then thinking ‘omg why did I spend all of my money’ hahaha please tell me I’m not the only one that does that! I have a serious problem.

That’s it for today.. I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to think of the things that you are thankful for! You will feel so much better for it.

☽O O T D☾

First of all I am sorry that this weeks video is a little late, I had a little problem with uploading and then had to alter the video but not to worry! This weeks video is an OOTD which I realised is actually my first one on Youtube!

I went for a comfy casual look because we spent the day walking with our dog, but where we went just seemed like the perfect place to film a video and the weather was so nice. I really enjoy making fashion videos and there will definitely be more to come soon! I think my main focus is going to be on the fashion/lifestyle side of things in my Youtube videos because that is what I enjoy doing the most. I hope you all enjoy the video and don’t forget to like and subscribe!

This Week I’ve Been…

dfghjk

Hello everyone! I am here again today to share some snippets from my week. I cant believe it is Sunday again and the end of another week. I also cant believe that today is the 1st day of November.. its crazy!

So, This week I’ve been:

-Out on lots of walks between work, I love going on walks so much, I took the first picture on Monday while my partner and I were out and I just thought it looked lovely. Despite it being quite cold it was actually quite a nice day on Monday and the sky was really nice and clear.

-Shopping! (as usual) I wanted to share this next picture because I am so excited about buying some more soap and glory products. After trying ‘The scrub of your life’ I fell in love and had to get some of the others to try out. I will post a review on them shortly. Also the pink jumper that you see in the picture I got on the same day, I was so happy that I found it because it is perfect and in my favourite colour- pink!

-Reading. I am currently reading Zoe Sugg’s second book ‘Girl online on tour’ And I have been glued to it. I definitely recommend it.

And of course the last picture is my gorgeous little girl Patch! I have made it a ‘thing’ now that she has to star in every ‘This Week I’ve Been’ post!

I have really enjoyed this week and have just overall been in a really good mood! 🙂

Happy first day of November everyone make sure to say ‘White rabbits!’ Does anyone else do that or is it just me?

Bye for now! 🙂

Primark, H&M and Charity Shop Haul!

11987047_165158487163997_660949570599742448_n

Hello! On Tuesday I went into town to do some shopping, after saving up for a bit I thought it was time to treat myself. Well, I tell myself that so I don’t feel as bad haha!

So my first stop was H&M obviously because its my favourite!! I got this pastel blue sweatshirt in the sale for £3! I am in love with this jumper… I’m actually wearing it now as I’m writing this post! I altered the bottom of it because I don’t like the tight bit that sweatshirts have at the bottom so now it is perfect!

12107250_165158117164034_3417643458297092015_n  12108308_165169390496240_9104626853786529872_n

I also got this black jumper, it was on offer for £5 which was really good because usually it would be £7.99! It is see through so I would pair it with a black crop top underneath. My favourite thing about this jumper is the gorgeous lace detail along the bottom of it.

After H&M I headed to a few charity shops, there are loads in my town and I love looking in them because you can find some really nice things. I got the Grey checked jumper for £3.50, I loved it as soon as I saw it, I love the pattern and for £3.50 it was a bargain! I also got this grey T-shirt, it is a big size but I bought it because it was only £1 and I am going to alter it into a crop top.

12027222_165158597163986_1113055230015714974_o11930804_165159260497253_6696339592414081347_o12118725_165158957163950_1273554493248905120_n12141038_165158677163978_249037844918792470_o

Next I got this black, white and grey cardigan, I love this it is slightly oversized and really warm so its perfect for the cold weather. It was only £4.25! I also got this grey long sleeve crop top for £1 just because I liked the look of it. I am not sure how I am going to style it yet but I just liked it and for £1 I couldn’t leave it behind!

After browsing in the charity shops I went into Primark, I prefer the one in Sheffield to the one near me but I did find a few things that I liked this time. I bought a black sports crop top to go underneath the black jumper that I got from H&M, I was really impressed with this when I tried it on at home, I think I might go back and get some more because they are so comfy!

I also got another sweatshirt, this time in grey. The writing ‘Fashionably late’ is definitely me because I am always late for things no matter how hard I try to be on time!

12017507_165159240497255_5027377899524907599_o

This next one was a present from my lovely partner, after debating with myself at the checkout whether to get it or not and then putting it back. When we came out of the shop he surprised me with it and I was really happy because I did want it I just didn’t want to spend too much money! It has a nice quote on it: ‘Why wait until tomorrow’

I also nipped into B&M and got these little bits… A Lovely polka dot mat that was actually on the pet aisle to put their dishes on. I got one to use as a background for photos just because I thought it looked really pretty! I also got a foot pack for nights when I feel like having a bit of a pamper! I love B&M’s Make up section because they always have a range of different things, I got this BB cream by Rimmel in the shade ‘light’ to try out because it was only £1.99! I have never used BB cream before so I am excited to try it out! I will do a review on it soon when I have used it!

12028846_165158017164044_7900406395199320741_o

Last of all I nipped into our local phone shop to get a case for my new phone, a pink one of course!

12105784_165158250497354_7805756561903772481_n

So that was everything that I got while I was shopping. It was really nice because I haven’t been for a while so I really enjoyed it!

Bye for now! Love,

H&M and Primark haul!

PicMonkey Collage

Hello everyone!

On Wednesday I went into town for an appointment and as usual, I ended up looking in a few shops afterwards and I picked up a few things. So I thought I would share what I got with you all!

So first I had a look in H&M, I got this black T-shirt in the sale for £5, I love it so much! And then I got another jumper, this time in grey because they are really comfy and perfect for winter.

Next I went to Primark and got two pairs of boots, I have been wanting some Chelsea boots for ages and I thought now is the perfect time to get them because its getting colder.

I also went in Garage shoes, they had a sale on and I got some of these snakeskin pumps! I mentioned in one of my other posts that I wanted some of these so when I saw them in the sale for £7 I was so happy!

12080742_155970721416107_678791094_n

I hope you enjoyed my little haul, I just cant seem to stop buying clothes!

Bye for now! Love,
