Lush Haul :)

Payday was last Thursday, and I am famously known for my spending ways, when I have money it MUST be spent as soon as possible...this time wouldn't be any different.
I went on a bit of a spending spree due to being in town 2 hours before needed (as I pass through to go to work) and the shops were open, I thought I'd have a 'look'.
I shall put the rest of my haul into another post as this one is dedicated to my lush lovelies :)

Twilight Bath Bomb

Sorry I forgot to take photos of what it looks like before I dropped it in the water!
I was tempted to buy the honey bath ballistic (forgotten its name oops) but when I smelt it in person I couldn't smell anything, I was so disappointed that I went on a smelling spree as I was determined to find a ballistic to enjoy that night, and after 10 minutes and many weird looks I found it! Twilight bath bomb, on the website it claims it smells of lavender, which I disagree as I can't stand lavender at all, it makes me feel ill within seconds however I couldn't stop sniffing this lovely smell! :) 
As I dropped it my bath it darted around with a pink train behind it, and as it dissolved a blue vein appeared and it turned into a dark blue-ish black colour (which I forgot to photograph as well, sorry!) but the dark water had sparkles in, I think to represent stars, which was lovely. Also washing my face with blackish water was a new experience.

A Sample of Big shampoo
This is my favourite shampoo ever! It has weird exfoliating crystals in a foggy water, but when its slapped on wet hair it lathers up wonderfully and it makes your hair feel squeaky clean! And a little goes a long way so a tub should last you a while. 

Honey I washed the kids soap bar

Yes my chunk didn't have any honeycomb on :(

After hearing so much about this product I just had to have it, when I walked into Lush I HAD to grab a bit and try it out, however when I got home and shared my bathtub with it, it smelt nothing like honey, it smelt more like cleaning fluid or something chemically. I have since e-mailed Lush for any advice that may make the smell a little nicer, so I shall keep you updated with that.

That is my Lush haul (not much of), thanks! :)

What's in my makeup bag?

My makeup bagggg! its pretty old now, I bought it when the Boots vouchers included Ruby & Millie, many moons ago. Its a Ruby & Millie gold barrel make up bag that is a gold finish (not anymore as it is on its last legs) and it fits sooo much in!

The goodies inside!

Brushes & Tools

Left to right; Eyelash curlers (H&M), Kabuki Brush (present), Maybelline eyeliner brush (Part of set), Tweezers (Superdrug), Angled blush brush (Avon), Eyeshadow brush (H&M), double ended angled brush (H&M), eyeshadow brush #2 (Part of Urban Decay pallete), Retractable powder brush (Unknown)


First up is my foundation, which was bought in the sale part in Superdrug, for a nice £2 due to the lid being cracked and broken, but that doesn't make any difference to the product and it doesn't leak so I'm not fussed. I'll do a full review of this to a later date, although its been around forever :)

My face powder! It sets my foundation easily and quick, however the rose scent it has makes me feel a tad sick after a little while. This was bought from eBay in a made panic after I broke my Rimmel Stay Matte powder the night before. It cost me £3 and came within a week of purchase, bargain or what? The shade is 64 Rose, which is a light vanilla shade, perfect for my face but can make me look slightly ghostly when I'm wearing fake tan.

My everyday eyeshadow pallete 

These eyeshadows are extremely pigmented and blendable, my favourite is the gold colour on the far right, and I use the brown to fill in my eyebrows. This little pallete cost me £5 in a car boot sale, expensive for a car boot sale but totally worth it for the colour pay off.

Bronzer :)

I received this last Christmas as a stocking filler and I have never heard of this brand before, but this bronzer is great as an alternative to blush, however not as good for contouring as it has a slight sparkle to it.

End of an era.

Yes this post is dedicated to HP! Last night at 12am I sat in a cinema with around 1000 others and watched the last HP film. Some may think, 12 O'clock at night, watching a film, yes I was irratated easily due to being tired and I found it hard not to yawn every now and then, but it was so worth it. Except the girl next to me kept crying, and elbowing me, but nevermind, theres always one.

Today I had lunch with my parent, Nana & Brother. We had lunch in Starbucks, scoured some shops and I came across something that caught my eye. I'm used to bargain hunting and finding something ok-ish, like the odd YSL jumper, or a nice blouse, but today I hit the jackpot!
I found for the silly price of £30 instead of the hundreds she's worth.. drumroll please...

Say Hello to Roxy!!!
I am chuffed! My new baby! I've lusted after any Mulberry in Fenwicks for the last 4 years, always thinking 'when I am rich I will own one', now working in McD's has given me what I always wanted :)

My Hair used to be nice and long and wavy, but alas it had no real volume and had literally 2 layers, thanks to a hairdresser who didn't listen to what I had wanted when I had it cut 6 months ago. My fringe was a fully grown out full fringe, which lasted 3 weeks and became a side fringe again. 

New Hair!!!
Apologies for it being unstraightened and being quite unruly but I just want to get a quick photo, I promise I'll take a better photo later. Now it is shorter, layered, with an annoying fringe that likes to get stuck in my eyelashes constantly. I'm hoping it will grow, as the only length I have is the small amount of hair situated at the back, so the front is short hair, which isn't very good as I can't use it as a security blanket anymore.  
What are your tips to grow hair faster? I'd love to try and test anything you think may work :)


Hello my lovelies! Hope everyone is well :)
Well today I went to work, then came home & received a letter saying I still had work to do at college so in the bad books with the parents.
Anyhoo, a couple of days ago I went shopping, as I haven't been able to check out the sales, on my way to Primark (I never actually made it to the store thanks to H&M) I picked up a little bargain in H&M...

This is a very Christopher Kane copy cat (like the pun?) tee, which cost me a nice £5, however I find the fit a little short in length but its nothing to phone home about.
The leggings are a basic ankle length pair from Topshop I've had for quite a while.

Awful photo alert! My make up has stayed in place after a 6 hour shift in a hot kitchen, definitely a winner in my books. Make up used;
Loreal Matt Morphose foundation (I don't know the shade sorry)
Boujois face powder
Topshop Cream blush in 'Flush'
Maybeline Gel Eyeliner
Clinique high impact mascara
Urban Decay eye shadow in 'Half Baked'
MUA eyeshadow 'Dark Brown' (used on eyebrows)
 You can slightly see the eyeshadow (I know its an awful picture)

Hope you have a nice week! :)

How could anyone say no to that adorable face?
I used to hate pugs, just because of their smushed faces (my mum used to joke that they looked like they'd ran into a wall), but now thanks to seeing a lot more of them, they've definetly grew on me.
Now they are my almighty wishlist, I'd love one exactly the same as the one above, and it would be named Charlie.
Too cute!!!

Would you like fries with that?!

As I have a job in somewhere that isn't the most stylish or even plainly nice place to work, yes I work in McDonald's.
Obviously I have had to deal with a lot of stick, fries related jokes and being stared at in my uniform (especially when the famous cap is in presence) however (drumroll!!!) I actually sort of enjoy my job. It is a job, I know how hard it is to get a job anywhere currently, and spending 5 months unemployed (after a seasonal job in Primark) I realised how much I adore working and earning money for myself without having to get out my puppy eyes for to get money from bank of my Parents. It also means with my own money I won't waste it, I will want it to go further, get more for my money, etc.
Also if you are from the North East, you may be familiar with the Metro Centre (peak of what it looks like above) I receive discount on quite a lot of shops and restaurants thanks to my branch of Mcd's being in the building, I do feel quite lucky :)

Where do you work? Do you enjoy it?
