HAPPY NEW YEAR!!




Hey dolls!
Wow one whole year over and done with. This year went too fast and I'm sure lots of people would agree.
2011 was a very busy year for me.

Things I did:
- Completed my GCSE's
- Went to Prom
- Got my results
- Started College
- Met so many new people
- Gained my own independence
- Found out who my real friends were
- Blogged more then the past year
- Really started building my make up collection
- Became more aware of the world around me
- Stopped being all "me, me, me" 

That was really my year, summed up. I loved 2011. There really weren't that many down's. And I don't hope to remember them. I only wish to take the good memories with me.
So next year I hope to accomplish a lot of things.


I've always loved reading from a very young age. But then due to less time 
I slowly drifted away from books. 
But recently thanks to IBooks I can now read any book my heart desires and anywhere I like. 
I've already started reading again. But I really want to read more in the new year.
I'm open to all books, so if you have any good ones, be sure to leave me some names :)


I want to feel more confident with who I am. I want to be able to go out and enjoy life as my self.


Pretty self explanatory.
I want to do up my own place and make it clutter free. 


I would really LOVE to blog lots more. I've been such a rubbish blogger lately. 
Promise I shall have more posts in the new year...


And finally I really want to take lots of pictures.
I want to capture all my memories of the year. I've realized in the past year 
I haven't really taken much pictures.
And this year I want to be more creative, I want to edit pictures and just in general
take more pictures of every moment and capture my memories.
Hopefully next year I will have more of my own pictures to put up in the end of next year post
and share with you guys my year :D


That's my new year plans.
What are your plans?
Maybe do a post and leave your links below for me to check out?

Thank you guys for really paying attention to my blog the past year. It really makes me happy to
see people reading and enjoying my posts.
I have everybody has an amazing New Year.

See you next year :D

Dress Like Pixie Lott.

Hey Dolls!
Today I have another dress like post. Today's one is going to be on Pixie Lott! I absoloutly love her. She is also someone who inspires me.
For this outfit I have adjusted it a little here and there. The outfit is not completely same, but it's quite similar. I've added a twist to make it wearable for the festive occasions :D




Pixie's dress looks like a chiffon material which has a peter pan collar already. However I thought for the 
festive season just to jazz it up a bit we could add more glitters.
 I've chosen this gorgeous necklace which can be worn on top of the basic white dress. The collar will make the whole dress look expensive and classy. 

In my opinion I think the riding boots would do, if you chose to wear this outfit casually. However for a night out or the festive season you could add a nice pair of heels to give you that added boost. 

For accessories I didn't want to over do it with another necklace. However Pixie has worn a few necklaces, which may have been because her outfit was meant for casual wear. So for the recreated outfit I wouldn't really add any other necklaces, but you could if you wanted to.Make sure to only go for small pieces because the collar and the necklace may make the outfit look too busy.

In the picture I also noticed that Pixie had a really nice statement ring. From what I could make of it, it looked like it was a turquoise-y, jade colour. So I added a ring which was around that colour. You can also go for many different colours because the collar reflects several colours. Mostly pinks, navy blues etc. 

For bags I would pair the outfit with a little gold clutch, this is because the collar has gold reflexes to it and the
clutch would be like a statement piece from the look. The slouchy bag Pixie has will again be suitable for casual outfits.

Get The Look:


And there you have it. A fully recreated look!!
This look would be perfect for festive occasions, night outs, birthdays. Anything really.

I hope this post helps you..

I really wanted to do more festive posts, but sadly I haven't really had the time.

My Winter Essentials.

Hey Dolls! Hope everythings' good
Today I will be sharing my winter essentials with you. These are just a couple of things that help me in the winter time.
I love winter really, the best part is coming home and getting into cozy clothes and just lounging around, the one thing I hate about winter though, is that I get so lazy and stop looking after myself. However I just do a couple of things here and there to make it easier to do things. Hope this helps :D


- Firstly dry skin! It is a disaster for me in the winter. Don't you just hate it when you've moisturised, but then you apply your face make up and you notice dry patches. Uh that really annoys me. However about a year ago I decided to do something about it! I started using E45, it's a cream that treats dry skin. This is like a really intensive cream. It's perfect for people who suffer with dry skin, due to the wind and cold weather. I love this thing, it refreshes my skin and also leaves it so moisturised. This is my number one essential for winter. 

- Another thing I really recommend for winter is a good hand cream. Due to the wind, I've noticed my hands get really dry and chapped. My cuticles all feel really weak. I use the Vaseline hand and nail lotion. It works a treat. I apply some before I leave the house, this way it's like a protective shield against the aggressive wind. I also apply some before going to bed. This way it repairs any damages from the day and leaves my hand smooth in the morning.

- Just like summer it is so important to stay hydrated in the winter. I always make sure I've got a bottle of water in my bag. Water is an amazing source of energy.Water is also really important to help us stay away from those harmful viruses such as flus etc. If you are not a fan of water, try flavoured water.

- My holy grail. The coco butter lip balm. This thing is amazing. I love it for the summer and it's twice as good in the winter. This has spf 15 in it. Therefore it's really good to protect your lips from getting burnt from heavy winds. I love it. It's an all round product for me.

- Due to harsh temperatures the face is the first target for wind. Exfoliating the skin removes dead skin cells and also gives you that gorgeous natural glow even in the winter. I love using the Simple exfoliator. It leaves my skin feeling so smooth and radiant.

- In the winter you will find dark colours on my nails. I don't know why but this feels like an essential to me. Nail colours. I feel like in the winter I take care of my hands even more. So I can be bothered with painting my nails.

- And lastly mascara! Waterproof mascara is the way forward for me in the winter. The wind always makes me teary and I feel my mascara goes everywhere, which is annoying but thank God for waterproof mascara. It works a treat!

That's all my winter essentials, things that make winter
run smoothly for me.
What's yours?

I hope this post helped you guys.

ELF: Lucious Liquid Lipstick

Hey Dolls!
Hope your all doing good.
Today I will be sharing my thoughts on the ELF luscious liquid lipsticks. This was my first time trying this little beauty. And I must say I am impressed.

ELF luscious liquid lipstick
Shade: Raspberry
Price: £1.50

The lip colour you can see in the picture is exactly the colour you get on your lips. This lip product is so moisturizing. It feels like a lip balm when you apply it. Before you use this for the first time you have to make sure you twist it for about 12 times I believe. It says on the package in really tiny writing, I mean I hardly noticed it.  
I love the fact that the colour stays on my lips for quite a long time. I feel I only need to reapply this only when the shine goes, other than that the colour sticks on my lips. I had to re check the website to see if this product was from the studio line. But it's from the original 1.50 range. Which I was really surprised about. The quality is amazing! It has this gorgeous bubble gum smell too. 
I would recommend this to everyone who loves great lip products, but doesn't enjoy re-applying again and again.

I hope this post helped you.
Thanks for reading.

Dress Like Aria Montgomery

Hey Dolls! Hope your all good!
Today I am going to be doing this inspired post. 
I love Aria from Pretty Little Liars. Her dress sense is really casual and girly. I chose to re create this outfit because I think it's perfect for college and just running errands. It's such a comfortable, laid back look.




From the look you can tell this outfit will be perfect for those not too cold autumn days. 
I love the top and how she's layered it with the white top underneath. To me it makes the stripes more noticeable. From the image it looks like Aria has super skinny black jeans or leggings paired with ankle boots.  Another reason why this look is perfect for college or school is because you have your average sized side bag. From the image I realised you can see a pocket on the outside of the bag. So I've used one which has pockets on the outside and also a short strap and a longer one. Aria has a huge necklace on. I've gone for this golden rusted floral necklace because I think it just stands out from the look.

Want to try this outfit?


I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Try this look out and let me know what you think of it.
Also if you would like me to do these posts on anyone specific, please leave your requests below or on twitter.

Lush-tastic boot-licious surprise sprinkled with monkeys.



Hey everyone!
It's official I am no longer sweet sixteen. I am now and have been for a month 17.
Why has it taken nearly a month to post this?
Well because when I did turn 17, I wasn't really... excited.
I don't really know. I didn't do anything last month apart from go out with the family. 
The real celebrations happen with my friends. So because of college etc we had to delay it till this month.
However better late than never...
So I'm now 17. Legal to driveeee. Can't wait to get myself behind the steering wheel.

For my birthday my friends and I went to an American Diner.
It was absoloutly amazing. 
I loved having all my close friends with me. :D

I didn't take many snaps but here are a few blog worthy...




Now to the presents.
I wasn't really expecting presents this year.
However my family mostly gave me money, vouchers etc
But my lovely friends decided to spoil me...




They Know Me Too Well  XD






And finally... The present that made all presents!!!


Meet Munkay!
He is my favourite cuddly little man!
My friends know that I am obsessed with monkeys. I love them.
So obviously as friends do they bought me this little fella.
And I love him. 
Not very adventurous with naming things I know. But the munkay is a bit of a private joke between the bestie and I.
When you call him you have to say MUNKAY. Yes loudly.
(This is what happens after I drink coca cola....)

I know this post was late.
But I hope you enjoyed it and I will be back with my usual beauty ramblings before you know it
Until then....

P.s. Credits go to the bestie for the 'inspiring' title.
It beats... 
17 birthday outing and haul, any day :D

ELF: Mineral foundation

Hey Guys!
Hope your doing good.
As you know ELF had 2 amazing 50% off sales recently. I made my order way back in August. I felt so spoilt on the site. It was really addictive. Anyway I have decided I will be doing individual reviews because if I do it all in one post, things are going to get crazy.

So today I am going to be giving my views on the ELF mineral foundation. This was the first time I had tried the mineral range and I am in LOVE!



ELF mineral foundation.
Shade:
Warm. (for medium skin tones with a neutral undertone)
Original Price: £3.50
50% OFF: £1.75

I love this product. It is an amazing product to work with day in day out.
I use this product on days where I'm on a full on shift. Which is when I have full days at college
 (9 am starts and finish at 5pm )
For £3.50 I think this product is well worth it. This product is so perfect for me because I'm not a person
who can have a full face of make up including liquid foundation, because liquid foundation makes my skin feel
trapped. Like it feels really thick. It's not the foundation I use, it's when I apply any foundation. 
So this mineral foundation gives me amazing results and also the lightness I want. I have control with this foundation. I really don't need to worry about cakeyness. My skin feels really smooth. 
The coverage is amazing too. I didn't think too much of this product but now I can't get enough.
It gives my skin a healthy glowy finish.   
The range of shades are awesome. It fits my skin so well. 
I apply this foundation with the ELF face kabuki brush. (Review coming soon) 
it's so easy to blend in.
It's also got spf 15. Which really helped during the 'Indian Summer' we had here in England recently. 

 I recommend this foundation for everyone who likes a bit of coverage and a healthy finish to their skin.
Love this product. Only problem is there is such a little amount in the pot. I really wish they did a larger amount. But I can't wait to get my next pot. 
Best £1.75  I had used in a long time :) 

I hope you guys found this post helpful.

Trendy Tuesday Tip: Concealer Drama!!



Hey dolls!
Hope everyone is doing amazing!
 I know nearly everyone wears concealer. Concealer is one of those things I always use when I apply face make up. 
Concealer is used to make those imperfections disappear.
It is so easy to over apply concealer and it makes your make up look too cakey.


When you feel your concealer looks too cakey just wrap a tissue around your finger and and gently in a 
patting motion blot away the excess amount. 
And your good to go :D

I hope this post was helpful!
Please make sure you

Lula Bloom - Blooming sensational!

Hey dolls!
Hope your all doing good!
One of my weaknesses is buying skin care products....
But aren't we all obsessed with buying luxurious products, which feel oh so amazing on our body?

This is the newbie in my body care collection!
The Lula Bloom- Blooming sensational body lotion.



The first thing that attracted me was the packaging.
The packaging is really cute and reminds me of the Ed Hardy products.
It's in a plastic bottle and it's a whooping 350ml which is a huge amount.

The lotion itself is very moisturizing. 
It smells really aromatic, something you would expect to find at a spa.
After rubbing it on your skin it turns into an oily texture. Which is a treat for dry skin, but it quickly evaporates leaving your skin so touchable. 
After using this lotion I was left moisturised for a long period of time.

I purchased this cream for £1.00 from Superdrugs.
It was purchased a while ago, I'm not sure if it's still in stores. 
If anyone know's where to purchase this cream or brand please leave it in the comments below :)

I hope you enjoyed this post.
