High street makeup haul

A couple of weeks ago I went out shopping, these are the makeup items that I bought. I haven't bought makeup in months especially high street makeup. I am really pleased with the items that I did buy and I can't wait to use them.
NYX #GlitterGoals This set includes: Travel size glitter glue Shades Luna/Lune Purple/Violet Pink/Rose
For Christmas I got a NYX Glittergoals set but in a different colour. When I saw this set I knew I 'needed' it as I don't own a purple or a white glitter, plus I am a huge fan of the glitter glue. As it adheres the glitter well, doesn't irritate your eyes and is easy to remove.
NYX glam shadow 19 Wedding cake I am a huge fan of white eyeshadow and the 'quest' to find a white eyeshadow that is really pigmented and bright. This eyeshadow caught my attention as it's a 'true bright white'. I also found the name of the eyeshadow really cute, does anyone else get drawn to a product even more when it has a cute name? Or is th…

Why I'm not a typical English lit student

I am currently in my 2nd year at university studying English BA. At my university there are two English courses. English and creative writing and just English (which focuses on Literature). I decided to just do English which mainly focuses on literature as people that I spoke to advised me this would be the better option for me as I want to become a secondary school teacher. In this post I will be discussing why I'm not a 'typical' or 'stereotypical'  English literature student. This post is meant to be light hearted and I don't mean to cause offence to anyone so bare that in mind...... Side note: please excuse if my grammar, punctuation isn't the best in this post, it's not a university essay.

I don't read books for 'fun' or 'enjoyment in my spare time When you study English at university this is a major assumption that you do enjoy reading in your spare time, you've heard of all these authors that the lecturers have mentioned and you…

Misconceptions about bloggers

I have been blogging for just over 2 years now and time has really flew by. When I decided to blog I had no idea about the online community of bloggers etc. The blogging community is one of the nicest communities to be a apart of. To non bloggers it seems as if bloggers 'have it all' and there are many misconceptions surrounding bloggers. In this post I will be talking about the myths vs reality
Blogging is easy Myth Blogging is really easy, how hard can it be to take a few photo's and write a post about something Reality Blogging is not easy at all! There are so many aspects that go into blogging that non bloggers don't even think about. It is also very time consuming. You have need: Create your own site - this is not easy at all! Trying the product out yourself so you can review it - this can take several days if not weeks depending on what the product is. Take photo and edit photo's - this is the worst part for me as my photography is not the best and my editing …

Beauty Dupes

As a beauty blogger and a makeup fan in general I love trying out new products. In this post I will be talking about high street dupes for high end products. Who doesn't like finding out what products are similar? I know I do.
Tarte Shape tape concealer (Fair Beige) £28 Makeup Revolution conceal and define (C2) £4 Tarte shape tape is one of my all time favourite concealers as. Unfortunately it's hard to get hold of in the UK and it's a lot more expensive in the UK compared to the US. Makeup Revolution have recently launched conceal and define concealer. Which has a big hype surrounding this concealer primarily as it's a dupe for Tarte shape tape. The colours aren't dupes as my local store never had C1 (which is the lightest MUR shade) Similarities Full coverage Doesn't crease Lasts all day on the skin Packaging is similar (expect MUR bottle and wand is shorter) Wands are similar Formula similar Covers dark circles and blemishes
Rimmel lasting finish concealer (010 Porce…
