New Look Ankle Boots Purchase

Hey guys! So I haven't made a post in a while as I have been too distracted with college, friends and most importantly, Christmas!! We only have one more day and I'm so excited! Anyway, I thought I'd make a short post about a small purchase I made today.

Small Boots Haul

Hey guys! I haven't bought makeup in a while as I've been trying to save recently, but I thought I'd treat myself and go on a small Boots haul, courtesy of my mothers credit card (I had been told that I need to buy something for myself instead of saving for presents for people for Christmas but I just couldn't take the guilt!). I'm just going to tell you guys what little picks I bought and should review a couple soon.

Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer Review

Hey beauties! So yes, I have finally given into the temptation of buying this product after months of it being on my wishlist. I'm the sort of person to have tons of beauty products written down to buy but then I go out and see other products and buy those instead... Does anyone else do this? After all the hype this concealer got, I knew it would be a good one to add to my collection so I went and bought it! Guess what, I was not disappointed! When the beauty world hype, they know what they're talking about. So I've had this product for about a month now (pictures taken less than a week after purchase and use), I thought I would use it for some time so I could give a true opinion and proper review.

Halloween Part I, II & III

Hello spooky cuties! So Halloween has come and gone and we're all left with our few pieces of candy and a scrawled up costume. I thought it would be nice to show you all what I decided to put on my face for this occasion. Now, I had three different places to go over the Halloween weekend so I had three different costumes to prepare which was the most fun thing to do because I love Halloween so much!

GOSH Glitter Nail Polish Review

Peppermint skies has been MIA for over three weeks! What?! These are the times when I have a think about whether I should just live my life writing in my blog instead of getting a proper college education. Hm... It seems every time I get the urge to write a post, I force myself to believe that I want to do homework, which includes lots and lots of essays... But I'm back and I will TRY to keep updated, because it's killing me not being able to post!

Soap & Glory Archery Pencil Review

Hello my girls! So lemme start by saying well done Soap & Glory, you've done it again. You've pushed me into buying this little beauty of a brow pencil for £10! Bit expensive I thought at first, until I began using it... I bet you guys can already tell what kind of review this is going to be, so I will TRY to not go completely crazy and force you all to buy this. HG HG HG HG!!! Okay. No more crazy.

Hello my lovelies! So the time has finally come for me to meet up with some other South East bloggers! Yay! I have been wanting to do this for a while but had no idea of how to be able to attend a meet! Luckily for me, my friend, or as she calls me "A blogger that lives near me" (thanks Livs) was already planning on going to a meetup on the 23/08/2014! For me this was amazing! I was so excited to meet so many more people who had the same interests as me and be able to find more blogs to follow and read through! In the back of my mind I was worrying that they would be mean or I wouldn't have enough knowledge about makeup to talk to them especially as I haven't had my blog for long! But wow, they were all so amazing! They were friendly and made me feel comfortable and made me feel like I'd known them for years! I honestly love them all so much *cringe*! This has been the best day I've had in a long time so I'm gonna talk you guys through it!

Summers Here!

Hello my fellow sun dwellers! 
Summer's finally here (or what people call summer in England which is actually cold and rain with a smidge of sun) and it's time to start soaking up those few sun rays before it gets cold again. I can hear that high school musical clock ticking!! I have to say, because I've just finished my last year, I've already been off for two months just as most people are starting their six weeks! Now for most people that sounds like a dream, but even though I'm probably the laziest person going, I hate to be stuck inside all day! I would love to go out and do something everyday but just don't have the energy to walk anywhere... 

Now at the beginning of our holidays things were great, I was out almost every day in the sun and with my friends! But now that's died down and we've run out of stuff to do... So now as I'm writing this blog I am sitting at a table in a furniture shop, trying to get my thrills out of serving customers and cleaning cabinets. How fun.

More Gelly Nails!

Hey guys! So when I said I bought loads of nail varnishes yesterday, it was my mother who took me to get them and I was reading all of the colour names out to her in excitement! Bearing in mind she's not really into makeup or on the nail varnish route... So I get in the car after my terrifying English exam today only to find that my gorgeous mum has gone out to boots to get me 4 more of these nail varnishes! How amazing is she?! So yeah just going to show you the new colours she bought me!

The first is 'Blackberry' GNP 2. It is a navy blue that is a deeper blue than the 'Blue Grape' GNP 17. 

Speaking of 'Blue Grape' GNP 17! Bless her, she tried to buy some of the colours I hadn't already bought from memory but accidentally bought me this colour! LUCKILY I was aiming to get this colour again because I love it so much so yeah! Lucky guess:3

Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint Barry M

Hello my beautifuls!
I'm so sorry I haven't posted in ages! I will try and remember to keep up to date!
Okay so I admit... Myself along with many other teenage girls have developed an obsession with the 'Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint' by Barry M. I admit it, as with all beauty products that look this great I was skeptical! I'm sorry! I love them so much oh my gosh! So I thought to myself, why buy one at a time? Why not buy 16? Yeah, exactly... So that's what I did! Today I went out and bought all of the colours that stood out to me the most (and that I had the money for). I am definitely going to go back and buy the rest of the collection! In my opinion they are not a thick varnish as at least two coats are needed to really bring out the colour. But they come in an amazing range of colour which I love! They are bright, colourful and look amazing! They are also extremely cheap compared to most nail varnishes, even drug store ones at only £3.99 a bottle. They come in bottles of 10ml which is enough to last you ages!

The picture above shows all of the nail varnishes I obsessively bought today. From left to right starting at the top they are: Rose hip, Papaya, Grapefruit, Passion Fruit, Blood Orange, Coconut, Lychee, Huckleburry, Sugar Apple, Greenberry, Guava, Blue Grape, Watermelon, Key Lime, Prickly Pear.

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm

Hey Beauts! I'm going to be reviewing Revlon's new release to the UK - Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm.
A while ago, Revlon brought out a lip tint in the shape of a chubby crayon. This was the 'Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain' that took the beauty world by storm. I only have one of these but I can say that it is quite sheer and sticky although it does last a while. Whereas these new balms are matte as it says in the name so they aren't sticky and they are also a balm! This means it has all the benefits of a long wearing lipstick with the added benefits of moisturizing and easy application with the chubby stick shape. 

The product comes in a plastic casing with a silver base to turn for more product. It leaves a buttery feel on your lips and doesn't feel thick or cakey. They all have a light peppermint smell and as I don't usually like scented lipsticks, I was quite skeptic. But seeing as though everyone in the USA had been raving about these I thought I might as well give them a try. Luckily the scent is very subtle and if it hadn't been pointed out to me I honestly wouldn't have noticed! The peppermint in the lipstick formula gives a slight plump to the lips as with all lip products that contain this. Unfortunately, I only have 3 shades, though I will be buying more! They are all quite similar in colour. I own the shades 205 - Elusive, 240 - Striking and 250 - Standout.

 From top to bottom the shades are: 250 - Standout, 240 - Striking and 205 - Elusive.

Who Am I?

Hi guys!
So I saw my friend's blog the other day and thought it would be a really cool way to share my thoughts and queries with everyone.
I will mostly be talking about all aspects of beauty though there may be some other randoms in here...
I am a 16 year old girl so I'm basically the cliche for all bloggers these days.
I love beauty, acting, singing, listening to music and watching TV. Yet another stereotype I'm following up on!
I'm not that much of an expert on makeup YET but I'd like to do my best in teaching you all tricks, giving you reviews etc.
I hope you enjoy and I can't wait to start blogging!
