Southampton Blogger Meet Up!

Our amazing goodie bag! 

Why hello there Stranger...

As you can probably tell I have taken and long and well needed break from my blog. (7 Months to be exact) I never decided to take such a long break, but blogging started to lose its place in my life and other things had to take priority. But recently I have found my self with more time and wanting to read and write blogs again and so I'm back and I'm making it a goal of mine to be a consistent blogger from here on out. But this post isn't about me, so I'm not going to drown on about it any longer! 

Last Saturday I was lucky enough to attend a meet up in Orange Rooms Southampton organised by Alice and Amy. The two of them did and absolutely amazing job and if your reading this, thank you again girlies! 

I headed down with my bestie Brogan and we meet everyone outside and joined them with some drinks in the lovely weather. After a chat we then moved upstairs to the Tiki Lounge for some food. I've eaten at Orange Rooms before and this visit lived up to my expectations again ( I had the Nachos!).  I'd definitely recommend a trip down there if you have one locally to you.

After food we all gathered together for a raffle with some great prices and we we're given our amazing goodie bags. After that and of course a few group photos, we spent some time getting to know each other! It was a lovely afternoon spent in a beautiful location and with great company! I meet some lovely girls who I am sure that I'll stay in contact with from now on!

I'd love to know if you guys have ever been to a meet up, and how it went!

Essie Fall Collection

Hey guys,

Sickness seems to have taken over my life recently, and that combined with uni has left me with very little time for blogging. So once again I'm sorry for not being around as much! 

A few weeks a go I got the chance to go to London for the Olympia beauty event, and while I was there I picked up the essie fall collection. I love deep and dark colours in the autumn time which is why I think I was drawn to this collection.

I like the fact that these are all mini colours as well, because I have yet to ever use up a nail polish and so it keeps costs down! The collection cost about the £10 mark from the event, which if you ask me is a bargain! 

Overall I really like all of the colours but I think 'For The Twill Of It' and 'The Lace Is On' are my favourites, as they're slightly more colourful. I especially how the colours change slightly in 'For The Twill Of It' in the light.

Have you tried any of essie's collections?

Review | Urban Decay 'All Nighter' Makeup Setting Spray

Hey Guys, 
First of all I need to apologise to you all for my lack of post this month. I have been a busy bee, with going back to uni and traveling up to London, which is no excuse, but its the only one I have. But I thought I would take some time today to sit down and write a post I've had planned for awhile.

I've mentioned before that I've always been on the look out for a product that keeps my make up on for longer, and so when I saw this travel size in Debenhams for £9 I thought I'd give it a try. And since then I use this baby every time I do my make up. 

'All Nighter keeps your makeup looking gorgeously just-applied for up to 16 hours – without melting, cracking, fading or settling into fine lines. 

Developed in an exclusive partnership with SKINDINÄVIA, our groundbreaking, clinically tested formula is suitable for all skin types and features patented Temperature Control Technology. Yep, this baby actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep foundation, eyeshadow, blush and concealer in place – even in hot and humid or cold and windy conditions. The result? Smoother-looking skin and vibrant makeup that lasts all day (or all night).'

So it works pretty simply, you do all your make up as normal and then when your done, spray this in an 'X' and 'T' formation over your face to lock it all in. and lock it in it does.

I'm not saying that after a 10 hour day it leaves your make up looking freshly applied but by god does it make a difference. You can still see some of my make up left on my skin and my dark scaring is still barley visible. I also notice that when I take off my make up theres more product on my cotton pads.

It leaves my skin looking less patchy, less flaky, less missing, less everywhere to be honest.

 In short I don't know the technicalities of how it keeps my make up on longer, I just know it does the job beautifully, and also with that it makes a brilliant mid day top up when i'm feeling the need for a refreshing spritz.

August Favourites

Hey Guys! 
Today I thought I'd come back to the old blog and bring you guys my August Favourites! 

My first favourite of the month has to be the Urban Decay 'All Nighter' Make up Setting Spray. I will eventually do a full review of this on my blog but for now I'll do a quick sum up! I had never found anything that would keep my make up on for longer before I found this. And although I'm always dubious as to how much these product works I really do see an improvement to how my make up looks after a days wear and to how much product is coming off when I actually take my make up off. It leaves my make up looking fresher for longer so a big thumbs up from me.

My next favourites are the MUA 'Undress Me Too' eye shadow palette and the Eco Tools 'Eyeshadow Brush' which kinda go together on here. Im not a huge eye shadow wearer, but I thought with the summer months coming I'd step out and try some colour! I've been loving this palette, for a novice like me its perfect for trying out some combinations and getting the hang of it all. The Eco Tools brush has also been so handy, Its such a multi use brush and perfect for the basics that I need it for. Will definitely be investing in more of these brushes! 

Next up I've been loving a new face mask by 'Mudd'. I picked this up from Sainsburys on a whim and im surprised how much I love it. I've missed actual mud face masks that dry and stiffen. I've always felt like I get a deeper clean from them, and although I know there are better on the market, this works for me, plus the pack is reusable which is a big plus for me, I've used it about 3 times and its still going strong! 

My next favourite I seem to be coming back to over and over again and its the Witch Skin Clearing Primer. I love the consistency, to me it feels more like a moisturiser than I primer which I love. But creates the perfect base for my make up. I also feel it does keep my skin at bay. And if I ever have an angry-looking red spot, I feel this acts a barrier between it and my makeup and calms the area down a bit. 

My Last Favourite is the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Violet Pop. I got this a few weeks ago at a blogging event, and have been wearing nothing else since. I love how with a light hand and lipgloss over the top it makes a perfect day colour and can be built up to make quite a dramatic lip. It's quite a smooth texture as well and very moisturising. This is the first Rimmel lipstick I own by and I will definitely be looking into more! 

If you haven't already seen, I've started YouTube! Let me know what you think, and any videos you like to see!
