Easy Nail Art Ideas

Hello, it’s been a while! I’ve been messing about with uni and work, just life really. Well fast forward a waste of a year. Uni really isn’t for me, I didn’t get along with the work load or the way university works in general, it’s not for me. Anyways here I am, back as ever I can not wait to get started again. I hope you all enjoy my content❤️

So I’ve been very into my nail art lately and have been messing around with some easy ideas! These first ones are animal prints and animal designs (with a Pokémon ball on the end there)

These were really easy to create with a black nail art pen and dotting tools which cost less than £5! You can even use a hair grip or anything really as a dotting tool. The cat is my favourite! What’s yours:)

I tried a little bit of a Halloween theme for these ones! Except my Jason nail looks nothing like Jason. I love the multicoloured eyes, there are so cute! This is my first attempt of nail art so if I can do it, you can!

These are just standard cute nails, I tried stamping for the first time on the yellow nail however it didn’t work to well, it don’t know why but practise makes perfect right! I love the daisy nail again made with a simple dotting tool.

I thought I would share my first nail art attempts with you. I really am enjoying nail art and would love your opinions and Ideas to create other designs.

Let me know what you think! What’s your favourite nail and have you recreated any of these😊

Exciting clothing HAUL!!

Hello beauties, today I have a haul for you. I probably shouldn’t of brought all this stuff however I did and I love it all. Right now I’m sitting all cosy, I got caught in the worst rain I’ve seen in ages! The point of me telling you this is that all my new clothes that I was wearing got drenched nevertheless they are currently drying on the radiator, it’s not all bad I have a bar of Oreo dairy milk-yumm yum.

The first item on my list of beautiful goodies is…

TIMBERLAND BOOTS, I bloody love them. I always um and ah about these as I adore them but the price tag hurts me. I would never be able to afford these alone so me and my boyfriend brought one shoe each. Worked out £65 each from office. It was the last pair and I think the women serving me wanted them as she seemed a bit annoyed that I was buying them…oops. I bet your thinking the colours a bit odd, I really love the colour it’s different to the classic Timberland boot colour whilst not being to bright. The colour works perfectly with most outfits, they are causing a few blisters but hopefully that subsides soon.

Next is a skirt from Topshop

i love Topshop clothing, I wouldn’t buy something that wasn’t in the sale though due to my tight budget being a student and all. This was £20 in the sale-I adore it. I find difficult to find skirts that fit around my bum and waist perfectly, but this skirt has a thumbs up from me. Plus it matches my next item.

I do have a obsession with this colour, I always tend to put my boyfriend in the direction of burgundy coloured clothes also, it’s great! These shoes were from New Look and cost £19 pound, what a bargain! I wanted a pair of heeled boots that were not too high for going out and nicer occasions as I am always in either converse, trainers or my new found love for my Timberland boots. I did have to size down in the shoes due to them not having my size however it was well worth it for these beauties.

I love this I think it’s great. I thought this would look so cute with a pair of boyfriend jeans or high waisted jeans I needed some more T-shirts. £5 a great price, plus I do love Harry Potter it reminds me of the Harry Potter puppet pals which is brilliant. That’s all from me(I may need to make a part 2) comment your thoughts and opinions below Lots of love Alex.xox

L’Oréal Paris Infallible TOTAL COVER foundation review

Hello beauts, my blog is back. To kick things off I am starting with a well overdue foundation review followed by a very exciting beauty and clothing haul tomorrow. So let’s get to the point the L’Oréal Infallible foundation.

Now first off the bottle is a yes from me, I definitely prefer plastic to glass foundation bottles. Yes glass is visually pleasing however is it worth the sudden rush of panic every time your bag of goods is dropped(plus if your clumsy like me-that’s often). I brought this after many good reviews it cost £9.99 from Superdrug on a 3for2 deal, because it was 3for2 I thought I would go all out and buy the L’Oréal beauty blender too-it wouldn’t feel right not too.

We will just ignore the upside down photo and the dirty beauty blender. The consistency for this product was a shock to me, it’s a thick mousse not in the slightest oily which is perfect for my acne prone skin. This applied smoothly, blendable and true to colour so there was no nasty surprises. Now this claims to be ‘total cover’ so it’s only right to talk about that, it’s BRILLIANT all the red blotches gone. Due to the consistency I expected a heavy feel but that wasn’t there, I forgot the foundation was there. I’ve tried many foundations and I actually gave up using it for a year due to not being able to find the perfect one for my difficult skin, and I bit the bullet and brought this beauty. My new makeup holy grail. L’Oréal Infallible.

That’s all from me beauts, leave below your comments and opinions on this foundation. 🙂

Favourite Netflix Picks for the Month

Hello sweets today I’m sitting watching Netflix all day long therefore i thought it would be relevant to share my favourite TV picks. 


1. DEXTER! 

I’m nearly on the last season, i adore this show…. it’s addictive. If you like a serial killer plus forensic blood splatter analysis in one, this is the show for you. 

2. Rick and Morty 

I’m unsure if this is Netflix but who cares good TV is what matters here 🙂

American Dad and Family Guy are great but they have slowed down a bit and watching the same episode over and ever isn’t fun. Rick and Morty is like these shows but a scientist and his grandson. BLOODY BRILLIANT, I find nothing funny but this is hilarious.

3. The Originals 

Think of a more adult version of Thw Vampire Diaries, not that The Vampire Diaries isn’t great because it’s amazing. However take away the high school part and we have the Originals, plus Klous is definitely something good….

4. Riverdale 

This had me on the edge of my seat well… bed, all season. It was full of twists and turns and it’s definitely so,etching to watch amazballs. 

And now the best part, my favourite snacks for these Netflix shows… yumm yumm

Candy Floss Grapes are amazing. It’s not like when you get a flavoured thing and it tastes nothing like it, it’s very candyflossy! It makes healthy eating a tad bit easier.


Harribo Milkshakes are the best Harribos around yumm yumm yumm.


That’s all from me, let me know any Netflix shows I should be watching and what you watch off the list above 

Byee 

Driving, Jobs and Shopping! 

Hiya everyone! Today I thought I would give you a tad update on things…

Number one… I have finally started to take driving lessons, yes I know I’m a little late but I never had the money but now I do(well I’m scraping together every penny to be a adult with a car that might possibly have eyelashes). How do I have the pennies to scrape up you may ask well… another adult step. A proper job…kinda, well they call when they need me thank god that’s a lot lately otherwise my dreams of having a mint car with eyelashes is over. I get I have to pass the test yet for my dreams to become reality but we have to start somewhere!

It’s mine and my boyfriends 3 years next month and he brought me some beautiful shoes, now they are no Jimmy Choo but to me a pair of converse is so much more exciting than a pair of heels I am unable to walk in leaving myself looking extremely strange to everyone around me. Just the original high top converse. Whenever I buy converse I go for crazy colour schemes and out there patterns but the original pair are the best bloody thing ever!

I also have been using a new toothpaste and mouthwash… more adult things(truly a adult when toothpaste excites you).  This is the Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White Black mouthwash and toothpaste. This can be brought in superdrug for £4.99(i got mine on sale for £1.50… bargain!) I never thought these ‘whitening’ products worked but this works wonders. Must say it’s a little strange using black toothpaste but it becomes normal. Tea and coffee stains are removed and my teeth have never looked better plus I’m definitely a fan of a bright smile.


That’s all from me sugar dumplings(naa that one isn’t great).

 Let me know if you love Beverly Hills Formula as much as me and if you are a converse or heels girl! 

Talk soon!

Benefit Hoola Bronzer and Dandelion Blush/Powder.

Hello girlies, 

Today I will be reviewing two Benifit products. I love Benifit products so much, they are so temping to buy but are also incredibly expensive. What I tend to do to avoid wasting my money, is to buy the mini versions of the products. I adore these, it gives you a chance to try the product and decide weather it’s worth spending all that money on, before actually having to spend the money. Today I will be reviewing the Benifit Hoola Bronzer and the Dandelion Blush/powder.

          
These are the products. I have the full size version of the Hoola Bronzer as I got it as a gift and I don’t like the packeting as its cardboard which can break easily, however the mini version seems to have a plastic casing that actually secures really well. 

So first off my favourite , Hoola.


The thing I love most about this bronzer is that’s it’s got no orangey tones to it at all, which is somthing I like in a bronzer, as sometimes they can leave you looking a tad orange rather than bronzed. It’s also matte which is amazing as I tend to prefer matte blush and bronzer then all the focus of shimmery goodness on the main event – THE HIGHLIGHT.  It is a very suitle colour, not to dark but still very buildable if you wanted a more dramatic look. The colour blends so easily without caking or leaving patchy marks, just a very smooth even look.  

I would definely recommend this product.


I always thought this was just a blush, I was wrong! It’s a brightning face powder too, who would of known. I personally wouldn’t use it as a face powder as I’m quite pale and I don’t want to look like a pink fairy on a day to day basis, If I’m honest I’m terrified of using this as a face powder, as its one of my favourite blushes. Just like the bronzer it’s a suitle colour, a baby pink, almost matte but a few flakes of shimmer, and totally blendable- it’s like their the perfect match.  I would say this isn’t very buildable for me personally, but what can I say I didn’t even know it was a face powder, and a buildable pink face powder would be a recipe for disaster. 

Overall love this as a day to day blush. 

That’s all for now girlies,

My Beauty Wish List

Hello girlies,

Everyone has those few make up or beauty products they feel they need to try so bad, but are too costly for our purses and wallets to deal with, or even products that are not released yet! 

This is my Beauty Wish List.


Anastasia Beverly Hills Moon Child Glow Kit.

Magically-Metallic highlighters (as decribed by the brand themselves) 

This is a product I want to try more than anything, these unique highlighter shades look so incredible, I’ve never seen any highlighters to be so gorgeous. Such a stunning range of different shades for every occasion, truly mezmorisimg. But at around £35 it’s something I just can’t afford right now. 

Revolution Unicorns Heart highlighter 

This is a new product just released by Revolution, I can’t wait to get hold of it! It’s a cheaper product retailing at around £5 but is truly stunning. As you can see I adore highlighters, what isn’t to like about looking like a shimmery princess. I’ve never tried coloured highlighters but there is just somthing so special about them that I have to try, plus the packaging is so cute. 


Zoeva make up brushes

I have seen so many YouTubers using these brushes latley, and yes I’m sold! I have never owned expensive make up brushes I just never understood it, but latley I think they could make a difference to the way my make up looks and I would love to find out. They look so professional and come in the cutest pouch, but at £50 it’s definitely on the wish list! 

That’s all for now girlies, I will be adding to this wish list as you will understand a girls beauty wish list is never ending.
