NYX Soft Matt Lip Creams


So, I have really been loving a lot of the NYX make up products at the moment, so i thought I would talk to you guys about probably my favourite product that NYX do, and that is their soft matt lip creams. Just, BTW I havnt been asked to make this I just thought it would be fun.  

The first thing that I really love about these is a pretty insignificant thing, but I lOVE their names. They are all named after city around the world and I just think thats really cool and a clever way to name things. 

So, these are the 3 colours that I have but trust me I would like them ALL!!! I love these lip colours and I wear the all the time. The colours I have are called Istanbul, Buenos Aires and Prague in the same order as the picture 

I absolutely love wearing these lipsticks and I love the consistency and the matt finish of them. They have a lovely pigment and they don't feel heavy or anything like that, on the lips. They can be quite build-able but I tend to only do one coat because I think I can get enough colour from that. Especially the dark berry colour called Prague.  

I hope you enjoyed this post and my amazing descriptions of colours (not). :D
Thank you so much for reading and I hope to talk to you all soon xx
See ya soon Xxx

April Favourites

Hi Guys! 

This are my favourites for this month!! Enjoy!


Wake me up concealer
This Rimmel concealer has been around for like ever but I only recently started using it and I can understand why people have been raving about it for so long. It blends amazingly well and the colour is get is exactly write for my rather pale complexion. I have it in ivory 01

Collection Volumizing Mascara
The reason I love this mascara so much is because of the brush. I have loads of little bristles on it so it can catch even those little lashes that don't normally get covered by a normal mascara. It was also pretty so cheap so there's another bonus.

Lets Spritz!
This is Zoella's perfume and I know its cliché that I would like this just because its by Zoella, but I don't I actually think it has a really lovely smell and I wear it most days. The bottle is also really cute and looks nice on my dressing table so why not??

Collection Define and Perfect Eyebrow Powder
I have no idea that eyebrow powder was even a thing but I tried it and its actually so good!! The colour is perfect for me and its really easy to use


Best Feinds
I know a lot of youtubers and people have been advertising this game lately but I am not being paid or anything I just think this game is really fun and I have been really enjoying playing it on the bus to school and when I am board in class. (I deffenently don't do that. Nope never :{)Me and my mum were having a competition to see who could get to the highest level first and when I can to her saying that I was on level 31 and was really proud she told me thats he was on level 65 and I was sooooooo annoyed :D

Scream Queens
So last month I talked about a TV show that I have been really loving called Pretty Little Liars and if you liked that I am sure you will love this show. Scream Queens it about a Sorority in a university and how there is a cereal killer on the loose. It is really funny but also quite dark and a bit scary. I have been enjoying this show sooo much lately an I really recommend it. Although maybe don't watch it at night. :P

The Jungle book
I saw this film yesterday and I am obsessed!! The animation was incredible and looked so real. And even thought I knew the story line, I was still shocked and wasn't expecting some things. It was so enjoyable and you really connected to the charters. I would recommend it to any fellow Disney lover but maybe wait till your a bit older because it can be a little scary at points

Dodie Clark
Dodie is a Youtuber and she is fast becoming one of my favourites. Her channel is called Doddleoddle, she is an amazing singer and she has written a lot of really lovely original songs. She's also very funny and entertaining to watch so I defiantly think you should go and give her a watch. Tell me if you do in the comments :)


I have eaten so many Oreos in that past month! I don't know what it is! I have always liked them its just lately that I have become a bit addicted. I think I might have a problem.

Easter Eggs
Obviously I have eaten sooooooo many Easter eggs this month as it was Easter and I can't get enough!! I still have like 8 :D


Newlook Jeans
I just have one fashion item to tell you about this month and that is these amazing jeans from Newlook that are high waisted and a really cute pastel blue and I have been wearing them almost every day lately .


Fairy Lights
I have filled my room with fairy lights and I can not get enough of them! they just look soooo pretty and cosy and I just love them.

Wake Me Up Concealer
Zoella Perfume
Eyebrow Powder

Hope you enjoyed!! Tell me your favourites in the comments

March Favourites

Hi Guys!!! 

So I want to start by saying I am so so sorry that I haven't posted in like 5 months but I have been so busy. I joined a new high school in September and I have been really focused on settling in and working really hard. 

But now I am back and I am not planning on doing any kind of schedule because I am still very busy but I do want to do more posts. I have a few in mind that I think you guys will love 

But anyway lets get on with my march favourites. This is the first one of these that I have done so let me know if you would like it to be a more regular thing :) 


Lottie London  
I have loved these nail varnishes this month, it is pretty much all I have worn. I loved light pinks this month. I also have some of their make up brushes and they are amazingly soft and such cute pastel colours

Baby Lips
These Doctor Rescue lip balms have literally saved my lips. They get so dry and chapped around this time and when I use these I can actually feel it working! I have one clear one and one with a very nice light pink nude colour  


The Flash 
I can not even explain how much obsessed I am with this show. I doesn't help that I am completely in love with Grant Gustin (plays the flash. Look him up he is incredible). This show is amazing and I recommend it to anyone. The love stories in it are just as amazing as all the fight scenes. The is a new crossover episode with Supergirl soon and I can not WAIT!! let me know if you like the flash too. BTW I am watching it right now as I type!   

Pretty Little Liars
I am sure you know by now that I have loved PLL since the beginning. This month the finale of 6b came out and I was pretty much in tears!! Cant wait for season 7. Again let me know if you love PLL too. 

Playlist For The Dead
This is a book I have been reading. Its such a good book and I have really been enjoying it. I wont tell you guys to much thought because I really want you guys to read it and tell me what you think. 


This Month I have mainly been eating chocolate (its Easter here in England) but I also have been eating a lot of mango which id my favourite fruit by the way. 


Primark Blanket
I bought a blanket from primark for like £5.00 a few days ago and oh my god I can even explain how soft it is!! It is a super cute pattern too and I just love it!! All the love fore this blanket ;)

Mood Boards
So, I am doing up my room in the next few months (future blog posts sneek peak) and I have LOVED making plans and board about it. I have also loved going on Pintrest and finding the images I like.

I hope you enjoyed this and please do let me know if you want to see these each month. I am very exited because in about a week I am going on holiday to Mauritius and I cant wait to show you guys some of the pictures we take and all the stuff we are gunna get up to!!

Current Skin Care Products

Hi Guys!!! 

So, today I wanted to show you guys the products that I currently use for skin care and what I think of them . Lets get started :)

In Shower Products 
These are the two products that I use in the shower other than just regular soap obviously.
The first thing that is in this picture is Johnson's Baby Oil. Once I have finished showering I usually tern of the water then rub this all over me while I am still wet and I am not kidding, it makes my skin feel INCREDIBLE!!Lots of beauty Bloggers and Youtubers have been raving about this lately and I can now see where they were coming from.
The second thing in this picture is Zoella's 'Creamy Madly Dreamy' body lotion from her beauty product collection. I love the smell of this and although I don't think it is meant to be used in the shower I like to rub it on my arms and legs in there because using it as a sort of shower gel works really well with this product. It has a very floral sent but it isn't too strong at all and has a great all seasons smell. Using water also helps to rub it into your skin even though it actually absorbs very well on dry skin too so I would recommend it for both. 
Johnson's Baby Oil

Body Products 
The first product in this picture is Vaseline Essential Moisture. I use this immediately after I shower and have dried my body. I use it on mostly my arms and legs and it really helps to get some moister into my dry skin which is most;y just my arms and legs. It dries very quickly and doesn't really have a sent which is good sometimes if you have sensitive skin. I couldn't find that link to this product so I have left one for a slightly different product from Vaseline, the only different thing is the packaging and that name really  
The second product here is a moisturise that I found in my house a few months ago and I have no idea what it is called or where it is from, sorry :( I use it all over my body except my arms and legs because it is quite freelanced and my dry skin doesn't really like that
The last product here is Palmer's Cocoa Butter. I mainly use this on my feet because they get very dry, but I also use it on my hips where I have some stretch marks and it's really good for getting them to fade, and it smells like chocolate  which is a massive plus! :) 
Vaseline Moisturiser
Palmer Cocoa Butter

Face Products 
The first product that I to clean my face is Clearasil Daily Gel Wash. I wet my face and rub it on my T zone ( for head, nose, chin)  then wash it of with a wet flannel. This product prevents me from getting spots to badly and keeps my face clean. And another really cool thing is its BLUE as in the actual gel is blue. Don't why I think that really cool I just do. 
Another thing I use to clean my face is Simple Kind To Skin Moisturiser. I just rub this all on my face and that about it but it is very good for keeping my skin soft because it is very pure and watery on my skin so it keeps it from getting dry
And to remove my make up I use Johnson's Face Care wipes and even though I know that using an actual make up remover is better for your skin than wipes but sometimes, a girl needs to be a bit quick when removing her make up and wipes are less faffy than a remover. I do have a remover that I use but it is actually my mums so I thought I couldn't really add it in her. And I cant find it.....

Simple Kind To Skin Moisturiser   
Johnson's Face Care Wipes    

I really hope you enjoyed this slightly different post an please let me know if you would like to see more of these review type post and beauty posts. 
Thanks for reading!! 

See ya soon!! Xx

Nutella Cookies!

Hi GUYS!!!!

So, today I am going to show you my recipe for Nutella cookies!

you will need:

  • 125 g butter
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 125 g caster sugar 
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 225 g self-raising flour
  • 200 g chocolate chips 


1. pre heat the oven to 180 degrees

2. Cream together the butter and the sugars, once creamed then combine in the egg and vanilla.

3.Then, sift the flour and then mix together with either a wooden spoon or like me, you could use an electric mixer. My mum got a Kitchen Aid for her birthday and it is soooooo beautiful and really good for making cookies so I would recommend it greatly

This is our one. Isn't she pretty!!??

And in case you wanted to know this is the attachment I used. I think this one is best for cookie dough

4. Role the mixture into balls and but on lined backing trays. We weighed the balls and we made 10 cookies with them each weighing 60 g or there abouts

5. Next flatten the balls down into a circular shape. Then, but a small blob of Nutella on one side, then fold it over so that the Nutella in encased inside the cookie. Make sure it is still a cookie shape though! :)

6. Bake them for 10 mins

7. Take them out and leave to cool for a further 10 mins. 

8. While they cool, melt the Nutella that is still in you jar by putting I tin the microwave BUT make sure you take off ALL THE FOIL before because otherwise you WILL break your microwave. I almost did (LOL)   
9. Put some of the melted Nutella over the cookies and put them in the fridge for a few minuets to set if you want. I only put them in for about 5 mins so that the actual cookies didn't go hard, but don't worry if they do because they will soften again if you leave them out

10. Enjoy your delicious cookies with a cup of tea! :) (this part is essential. You CAN NOT miss is out. I am being serious. If you don't eat them I will. They are that good.)       

Here is how mine turned out. I think they look pretty good! 

See ya soon!!!
