A Big Fat Haul! x

A Big Fat Haul! x

Firstly, I know Ive not been blogging as much as I should and its not because Im lazy (sometimes)but because I have been England for the past weekend! I would of told you guys earlier but I wasn't sure if I was allowed so I just kept it all hush hush, sorry.  A close family-friend got married so I went to her wedding which was amazing, my brother has just recently got engaged and it was my sisters birthday too, so there were lots of celebrations! Obviously though, that didn't stop me having a cheeky shopping day with my mum, where I had my first Starbucks in months (had to go for the new yogurt red berries Frappacino) and bought some absolute bargains from TK Maxx which i am over the moon with:)

 The weather in England, Essex was better than I predicted to be fair, it was warm with blue skies most days but I still found it cold! I have to admit, I was in heaven strolling down the high streets and going into Boots and Superdrug, because we have neither of those where I live in spain! *cries* But saying that, I wasn't able to get anthing from Superdrug because I mayy or may not have spent all my pocket money in Tk Maxx in the beauty section:\ 
It was so hard choosing what to buy with the money I had (£10) because there were Essie nail varnishes, Elizabeth Arden eyeshadow quads, Bare Minerals sets and ugh I got so frustrated! (Does anybody else have this problem where you can't decide what to buy so your head just kind of explodes and you want to scream? Cause same.)
But in the end I got some Too Faced stuff which was amazing because Too Faced is probably one of my favourite high end brands:) and a Maybelline New York Big Eyes mascara because I'd been wanting it for ages! 
 I also got two pairs of shoes; a pair of white leather heeled Converse which were about £25.00 but my mum paid for them because she said it was my treat for getting good grades (WOOP WOOP) and a pair of Dune nude coloure pumps with a bit of bling on because they went with the dress I was wearing to the wedding! I'm not sure how much these were as my mum got these in the sales but I think they were around £38.00? My sister also gave me this really cute embroidered clutch bag with different diamonds and gems on, which I wore to the weding with my dress so I thought I would take a picture of that too because I love it way too much:)

Anyways, I thought I would do a little review on the products and what I think of them so far, along with some pictures that remind me of England because I thought they were quite cute<3

So after uploading all of those pictures, my computer has decided to hate me and not let me upload the final picture of my shoes so sorry bout that:(

On to the makeup, I have been loving these products because I've found that together, the Too Faced Amazing Face Foundation, Too Faced Lip Injection, Stila Stay All Day Conceler and the Maybelline New York Big Eyes Mascara all make the perfect natural makeup look. I use the shade Perfect Nude in the powdered-foundation as I'm quite fair and I don't really tan that easily (despite living in Spain) so this is the perfect every day shade for me. It feels really lightweight on my skin but in my opinion, you would have to use this with a long-wearing concealer as the coverage is good at first, but sometimes will wear off during the day. Even thought this isn't the best foundation I've ever tried, Im still happy with this as it was something like £6.99, the packaging is stunning and it doesn't brake me out in spots like some others.
 I am absolutely IN. LOVE with the Too Faced Lip Injection in the shade Never Enough Nude like I can't even explain my love for this. It's the perfect natural lip shade for me; its a nudey shade (hence the name) with a slight hint of baby pink to it. This makes your lips look that little bit fuller, whilst moisturising them as well and even though it has that subtle nudey shade to it, it doesn't make you look like you have "concealer lips". 
The  Maybelline mascara has been really handy for me as I can never get to my bottom lashes and with the seperate smaller wand, it helps me to get to every one of them and make them fuller.
I only have a couple more days in school and then we are finishe for the summer so I am buzzinggg!
I will defo be taking more pictures for you guys and if you have any ideas on what you would like me to do as a future post then let me know<3

Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanse and Polish Review x

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Review

After two long weeks of revising and exams, I'm back with a review on the famous Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Cleanser. This proudct has veen raved about by so many people; bloggers, youtubers and beauty gurus, so  I thought it was a shame for me not to try this life-changing face wash.  As a quick disclamier and that, I haven't been payed or sponsored in any way to give the follwing review and all opinions are my own. I saved up and bought this with my own money so I felt like it would be a good idea to share with you guys what I thought it was like, as its a tad more expensive than normal drugstore skincare products.

First things first though, I am no specialsit in skin or what kind of products should be used on your skin so this review is purely on how i find it after using it for the past month. Saying that, I have tried every skincare brand you can think of: Simple, Olay Skincare, Clearasil, Soap & Glory Skincare, Garnier Skincare, No7 Skincare, Freederm, Boots own branded skincare, T-Zone, you name it and my skin is never as glowing or healthy as I want it to look. My mum recommended me trying this Liz Earle product as Ive never use a product from their range before and I honestly dont understand how I live without this. It comes with a muslin cloth which you use to supposedly "polish" your skin and this is cloth is softer than a baby's bottom, its literally the nicest thing! I have oily to combinatioon skin, but use this everday in the mornings before school, by simply splashing my face with warm water before pumping out about 1-2 pumps of the white, creamy cleanser (which  smells of refreshing mint:) and massage it gently into my skin. After its been on my face for 2-3 minutes, i wash it off with warm water and  polish my skin (with the muslin cloth) until my skin is smooth and free of the cleanser. I cant really find any faults with this product and im pretty sure im going to be purchasing the Liz Earle skincare set very shortly because I honestly dont know what im going to do when my Cleanse and Polish runs out! I would give this a 9/10, just because its a little bit pricey.

Im sorry this was up so late, I know I've been terrible at posting on time recently but as it gets closer to summer, school work should hopefully ease which will leave more time for my blog. 
I have a best friends 14th beach party coming up this weekend so there should be some interesting pictures going up later so keep your eyes peeled!
Aswell, I just want to say that in the past month, I've almost had up to 300 reads and I cannot express enough how much I love every single one of you for taking the time to read this. If you want to speak or anything, then I'm always answering Dms and the sort on Instgram so dont hesitate to stop for a little chat because I'll be here<3 Feel free to leave comments below and I'll try my best to get back to you!
Lots of Love,
