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 ūüôā

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

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!

Beauty and Clothing Haul and Some Favourites 

Hiya peeps(trying something new…. nope peeps isn’t happening).

I have gathered some things from various shops over the past few weeks and thought I would share them with you. I’m quite broke but it’s ok because I got myself a job! Anyways this is what I brought, plus some cheeky favourites. 

Primark! I do love the shop, here’s what I brought.


Both the shorts and the skirt were ¬£8 each, bargin! The shorts kinda of remind me of the clothes I used to wear when I was around six but ah well they are just so cute! The skirt is a staple piece that I’ve always wanted but never found, well Primark has done well, because I can now introduce you to my favourite piece of clothing, my ¬£8 denim skirt. 


This is a bra, I’m posting my bra on the interwebs… strange. I have to be honest I scribbled out the middle as it made me feel less embarrassed about my underwear being on the internet. It worked a charm, embarrassment… gone! I see these around a lot lately, people wearing low cut tops and the pretty design at the top being on display, however I can’t seem to find a top to work with it, any suggestions leave below! This bra needs to be worn. Oh yeah ¬£6, amazballs! 

Next is a Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in the colour Sagittarius. The people who come up with the names for these lip products are geniuses, I could never think of a name for every different lip shade. I could pretend that I brought this but I’m trying this thing where I’m completely honest, yeah my sister gave it too me – I can’t afford this stuff(yet). I love the colour it’s different, unique, beautiful.


Revolution palettes. These are amazing, such pretty colours. With the highligher and blush palette I get to look like a glitter bomb exploded on my face – never too much highlighter! With the contour palette I have one shade I adore, a contour shade that doesn’t make me look like a orange and who could want more than that. 

(I only showed the first palette on my hand as I only use one colour in the second which is the one on the second row third in, my lack of photography skills make it look darker than it is but I promise perfect shade!)


FAVOURITES OF JULY! 


I brought a DS, yes I know a little late to be getting on the trend however I love it! Zelda is my favourite at the moment however once I find Sims I will be unable to focus on anything other than. 


This is poppy, we have a love hate relationship. I am a vocalist but I also have vocal problems so when poppy comes out and I try to sing with her we eaither click instantly or fail greatly. We have been clicking lately however I see our relationship going south after rehearsals today. 


With college out of summer Netflix has become a daily thing. The Originals is my all time favourite for me personally it’s a better take of The Vampire Diaries and Klous is beautiful. Dexter is also a favourite at the moment, I’m also rewatching My Mad Fat Diary on more 4 which is brilliant!


Back to Primark for ¬£12, these shoes have been my holy grail for this month. I bloody love them, that’s all I can say plus the quality is insane for the price!

That’s all for now, comment below your favourites! 

 YVES Saint Laurent Le Teint Touché Eclat Foundation Review 

Hello beauties, today we are talking foundations. I haven’t done a review in ages, it’s well overdue -so here we go. The product I’m going be reviewing for you is the YVES Saint Laurent Le Teint Touch√© Eclat Foundation. I got given a sample at my local Boots store  which I was very exciting however I am very indecisive about this one, it has a lot of pros and cons. 


This is what the full bottle looks like, it retails at ¬£33.50 from Boots. 

It comes in a huge range of different colours for different skin tones 22 to be exact! The foundation claims to have coverage whilst feeling weightless, i can confirm It does feel very light on the skin however the coverage isn’t there for me. I love the dewy, radiant finish, it blends beautifully and effortlessly with a beauty blender, which is definitely a plus! I have noticed the little sample bottle has lasted 2 weeks longer than I was informed which is also a amazing benefit.

I must say this foundation doesn’t work on my skin type, I’m oily – this foundation slides off my face too quickly. I had a colour match in store then to find it oxidise’ on the skin. When I am having a bad skin day, which is a lot of the time. It clings to my acne and dry patches, it clumps and cakes around those areas which is not pleasant. However if I was having the once in a blue moon good skin day then I think the caking wouldn’t be there as it’s just smooth skin. 

Best of Netflix!

Hello beauties, I’m a bit of a Netflix lover. I like to binge watch shows in one day because I have to know what happens next. If you enjoy your Netflix’s as much as I do then settle down to read this post as their is some amazing shows on my list.

1. Series of Unfortunate Events

This series is is based off a popular book series ‘Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events’. It tells the story of 3 children that lose their parents in a fire and Count Olaf is trying to steal their enormous fortune. 

2. The Missing

This one is my favourite. I haven’t watched season 1 only season 2 I don’t think they are linked as nothing was confusing. The show is about a girl called Alice who went missing when she was young, Alice turns up out of nowhere and the storyline is figuring out what happened to her. It’s full of unexpected twists and turns and nothing is ever as it seems. Definitely one to watch if you love a good mystery. 

3. 13 Reasons Why

Now this is a new show that a managed to binge watch in one day, it unravels the story of why a young girl committed suicide, she left tapes and each tape tells a part of the story. Again this is one of those story’s where everything starts coming together towards the end, it keeps you guessing. Its definitely worth watching, I was not disappointed. 

4. Orange is the New Black

Now I know a lot of people disliked this show, a lot of people told me I wouldn’t like it. Well… I loved it!! It follows a female prison and a women called Piper who is put in jail for a year however she doesn’t think she is cut out for it. It’s very entertaining, the prison gossip is hilarious. 

5. Scream

If you love the movies, you will love this. I feel the series is better than the movies, the killer is a lot more realistic and the story goes into a lot more depth than the movies. With the movies I found I knew who the killer was half way though, I didn’t know with this show – I really didn’t! Very twisty story with a lot of unexpected shocks. Brilliant.

These are my favourite shows, let me know yours in the comments I would love to hear what your favourite Netflix shows are‚̧

Things not to say to someone with a mental illness

Hello beauties, i love reading these types of posts as I can somewhat relate to them. So I thought I would share my opinions of ‘What not to say to someone with a mental illness’. 


1. Your not OCD, people will OCD are clean.

This one just makes me laugh. OCD is no where near just being clean or neat, that’s only a small section of the disorder. OCD has many different sections such as checking, intrusive thoughts, magical thinking and many more. 

2.  Stop taking your antidepressants, you will feel better

I really don’t like hearing this one as it makes the person feel ashamed of taking the medication. 

3. Your such a emo

Self harm is a very complicated thing, people shouldn’t be defined by it and definitely not stereotyped by this. If you notice that someone is self harming, this is the worst thing to say. 

4.  Just be happy, get out of bed and be happy 

For some people the basic tasks of day to day life are too much. 

5. Stop attention seeking 

It’s a cry for help not attention seeking.

6. She did that because of her mental illness 

Not everything someone does is a result of their mental illness.

7. I was depressed for a few days once, I know how you feel. 

Simple answer. No you don’t 

Why I took a break from blogging Q&A! Beauty, lifestyle, about me 

Where have I been?? 

Hiya beauties, today I am going to be answering your questions to do with why I took a break from blogging, what I want to do with my blog and how I am going to go forward. This post is going to be very raw, I only realised a lot of this after writing it all down, so here we go….



1. Do you still enjoy writing beauty blogs? 

Yes, I love it! However when I was blogging everyday I struggled for new ideas everyday, I couldn’t afford to keep buying new products to try. It put me down quite a bit as I wanted to be able to blog every day about all these wonderful beauty products however it just wasn’t possible. 

I really want to start lifestyle blogging, maybe some recipes, advice, mental health advice and some fashion things, let me know what you think! 

2. What haven’t you posted in a while? 

I was lacking ideas, I wasn’t enjoying it anymore it felt forced. My blog wasn’t me, it didn’t reflect me as a person it reflected who I thought people wanted me to be. Whilst saying that I do have a lot of new ideas for posts that are 100% me, I am so excited to share them with you! My blog is having a makeover!

Another reason is college, I’ve been really knuckling down at college as I would love to do criminology at university. I’m doing well though all distinctions!!

3. 5 facts about you? 

I love watching Next Top Model purely for the drama!

LOVEE MONKEYSS

Porridge is my favourite food (boring I know!) 

I suffer from OCD… good to get that off my chest 

I once accidentally spilt yogurt on my cat 

4. Are you proud of your blog success? 

Now I wouldn’t say my blog is mega successful. I have around 350 followers which I think is amazing, I see that am think I’m flipping Zoella haha. It really is a confidence booster. I know 350 is nothing to some and everything for some, it’s everything to me. I would love for my blog to continue to grow it’s like my little family, I have had some followers who have reached out to me which is incredible. I have a blog plan now for new posts 5 times a week, I am getting on top of this as I absolutely adore doing this. 

I remember I posted a Instagram post, and within one minute I had 100 likes. I was crying thinking that something was wrong with my Instagram, or it has been hacked, not one part of me thought that people might actually be liking my post. I did realise… eventually. It was GREAT!

Best and Worst of Budget Concealer! 

Hello beauties, I have lot of blemishes so I always put a lot of time in trying to find the perfect concealer which is going to work however isn’t going to drain me of money. These are my Best and Worst of Budget Concealer. 

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Concealer. (¬£5.49) 


This is such a great Concealer, it looks very thick and heavy however when applied it’s beautiful. It’s a high coverage Concealer, I find I have to warm the product up on the back of my hand then it blends with little effort. I use it every day on my blemishes, and it works a treat. Definitely a winner for me. 

Primark PS Conealer Stick. (90p)


I thought to myself a 90p concealer, that’s brilliant! Or not so brilliant.

At first glance I loved the look of this product as the colour was very light with almost a pinky tone to it. I put this under my eyes and on my blemishes and was so disappointed. It has hardly any coverage, is impossible to blend plus creasing happened within minutes. For the price I shouldn’t of expected much however I expected a little more than that. I love Primarks makeup range, I love their lip products and their oval brushes but this product just isn’t for me.

Collection Lasting Psrfection Concealer. (¬£4.19) 


This product, it’s amazing! My all time favourite Budget concealer I use it under my eyes everyday, it doesn’t crease, lasts all day whilst blending beautifully. I have a whole post on this product so if you would like to read more about this go take a look :). 

Maybelline Cover Stick (¬£3.99) 


I love Maybelinne Concealers, however this one just didn’t deliver. I am so disappointed with this product, it’s very oily, quite a rough application and the colour range just isn’t as good as other products. There is not much coverage to it at all, I will not purchase this product again. 

That’s all for now beauties, let me know your opinions on these concealers or your best and worst.

Current Beauty Essentials!

Hello Beauties, 

My beauty routine changes quite a lot as I’m sure most people’s do but whilst I’m loving the one I have been using latley, I thought I would share it with you.

First off to wash my face I have been using the most amazing fash wash/scrub which is – Garnier Exfobrusher. I have wrote a whole post on this absolutely incredible product if you would like more information go have a read! It has become a holy grail product for me! 

For moisturiser I have been loving The SkinSystem Day Cream, ASDA. I used to use baby lotion before this however this has a thicker consistency, giving the skin more moisture -which I need as I tend to get very dry skin during the winter time. I use this together with the Benifits It’s Potent, i would never branch out on eye creams as I believe it’s one of the best budget eye cream out there I use it constantly plus Im just  not ready to change eye creams yet its to soon.

Next up is makeup brushes, I always use the same ¬£10 eBay set they do the trick, they have always worked perfectly for me however recently I have been loving these two oval brushes from Primark- I’m thinking about purchasing a whole set online!

Now Make Up! These are my basic everyday makeup products, my ‘essentials’ that I am absolutely loving at the moment. I cherish all these products and they definelty deserve to be put to the test. 

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation (105),

Maybelline Matte Maker Pressed Powder,

Seventeen Define and Conquer Contour Kit,

Freedom Brow Pomade (Blonde),

Revolution Ultra Eye Contour Light & Shade Matte Palette,

Sleek Full Fat Lash Mascara,

Sleek Solstice Highligher Palette.


That’s all for now beauties, my everyday beauty essentials! Let me know in the comments if you love any of these products or what products you would call you ‘beauty essentials’.

My Latest Eyebrows Favourtie! (Freedom Brow Pomade)

Hello beauties, I’m very fussy with my eyebrows and haven’t yet found the perfect product for me until now. I have been trying to get hold of this product for weeks now but every time I go to Superdrug it’s sold out, so I am very greatful to have finally got hold of it! 

Freedom Eyebrow Pomade ¬£5 



This is what the product looks like it’s definelty a dupe for the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade which costs around ¬£15-¬£20. I am so impressed with this product, it has a very thick, soft wax like texture so you only need a tiny bit on a hard angled brush, I also just brush them through after with a eyebrow comb. I do find that you can easily put to much product on leaving your brows looking very false however this is not difficult to avoid by just using a tiny bit of product at a time, it toke me a bit of time to get right but practise makes perfect! I can work with this product very easily creating eaither very natural brows or big defined brows, it goes eaither way.

There are around 10 different shades of this brow pomade, I brought two shades soft brown and blonde as I was unsure what would be the best match for me. I have dark blonde hair and I found the blonde shade was better suited to me, the soft brown which is the colour on the right is very red toned which didn’t look right on me at all however the blonde is perfect. I do feel like if you are a very light blonde you would have to be very careful with the amount of product you apply during application as it is a slightly darker blonde however if you use a very light hand it should work perfectly.

In the photo below the blonde shade is on the right.


That’s all for now beauties, I hope you love this product as much as me, let me know in the  comments below?
