Update and ELF haul

Edit: I’ve been re-arranging my blog (still too cheap to buy a domain), and decided to take some product shots just now. Hope you enjoy them! 

I’m FREEE…. Until September. A month after my last post, I finished my exams (it was only two, but I have not done exams since A2/final year of sixth form or pre-college for anyone outside the UK), and now I am home for 10 days celebrating the last week of Ramadan and Eid. I am going to London next week to see my friends and family too and then July is going to be filled with graduations, so it’ll be a lot of travelling back and forth home and university. Nonetheless, I wanted to shoe horn in a small haul from ELF (eyeslipsface) as they were promoting a 50% off everything on their website and I really wanted to try their things as well. I have bought their HD powder before but I found myself going back and forth with the product because I preferred the RCMA No Color powder because there was no flashback.  Continue reading

KAOS Fashion Show 2017!

Hello and happy Easter break! For schools, it is the start of the 2 week break whereas I am halfway through my break. I came back to Leicester last week for two weeks for my cousin’s wedding as I am bridesmaid so it has been quite relaxing until I have to start doing my university work from Monday on-wards. Anyway, last year, I took part in the KAOS fashion show at my university (here) and modelled for New Look. This year, I modelled for Lady B Loves, a vintage clothing line in Norwich. We got our makeup done by makeup artists of Charlotte Tilbury and my look was the ‘dolce vita’ face chart, consisting of purple eyeshadow and eyeliner. Continue reading

Everyday Makeup Collection

As a way to downsize my collection, I have been using a old Birch-box to store my everyday makeup (or the days I usually wear it) so try and use up products that I have been meaning to use up. I wanted to do a last makeup related post of the month before I try and get into other parts of my blog to ‘juice it up again’. Continue reading


A trip to Birmingham

Hello and Happy New Year! I hope you all celebrated in a responsible fashion, this week has been my paid holiday off from work which feels strange but I still have one more essay to complete! Nonetheless, as a break, I went to Birmingham with one of my closest friends, Liza, and whilst she did not spend as crazily, I DID. So here are the items I bought! Continue reading


Huge ass ColourPop Haul

EDIT: I’ve been editing my page and completely forgot that I was supposed to show some swatches! I think what I’ll do in the meantime is create another post on my lipstick collection with swatches! 

It’s December which means deadlines and busy retail life and constant stress… but also the end of the year and time to be with friends and family. I have been meaning to put this post up since October but life came at me followed by a cold/possible flu so I wasn’t capable of doing anything. I still have loads of deadlines to be working on so take this as a dose of procrastination! I did two ColourPop orders as they have been doing a special time of free international delivery over $50: the first order I was not taxed, but the second time, I had to pay a customs charge. And I was going to do a lip swatch photos, but right now my lips are incredibly dry from this cold so I have not been wearing makeup that frequently. Anyway, here are the products I purchased in no particular order (which I will probably re-arrange for when I update this post with images)! edit: I did a final colourpop order just before Christmas which celebrated Kathleen’s favourites with a 20% off a selected range of items so I bought four more lip products 🙂  Continue reading
