Tourist in my own city…

Good evening everyone! Welcome to my new readers and welcome back to the ones that have been following me from the beginning! I Love U!

The weekend just passed was awesome, because I found an sickkkk deal on a one night stay at an apartment in Birmingham and even though Birmingham is my home town, I booked it!

1: Because I felt like I needed a little family adventure. Not going on holiday this year has really taken its toll on me.

2: Because it was the perfect location to up my photograph game on Instagram!

Kieran and I were saying how different we felt when we walked into town for a bite to eat. It was like I was looking at Birmingham for the first time ๐Ÿ˜‚! I think we just had a different vibe because we knew we were staying over!

Hunter (My little boy) loved the experience, and he really enjoyed waving at other people from the balcony!

It’s made me realise there is a lot more to the place you live, and how important it is to do spontaneous things and not get stuck in the same old routine. I’m already saving up for our next little trip!

If you’re thinking of booking somewhere, use this link and it will get us both ยฃ15 off our next trip!

ยฃ15 Each ๐Ÿ˜

Here’s a video of the apartment too:

Let me know what you do for fun with family and friends in the comments below!

Review: Colour Pop No Filter Concealer

Good Morning Everyone!

I happen to be waking up in a beautiful apartment in Birmingham this morning with my family so all is well!

I bought the CP No Filter Concealers a few weeks ago now, and have been planning my review for a while since I bought them, but I wanted to make sure I’d applied a few times before I made my mind up about them.

What I will say is, they’re great, but they’re not amazing.

The improved shade range is brilliant in my opinion and that is because I never normally find a concealer light enough for my complexion!

So I obviously had to be completely extra and buy the two lightest shades!

002 I will normally use on its own although I sometimes mix it with my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer if I’m wearing fake tan! I also mix my 00 shade because clearly no one is that pale ๐Ÿ˜…!

I really feel like these shades have upped my makeup game, because I find it a lot easier to contour and highlight when I actually have contrasting colours to my foundation.

One down point I will say, is that the formula seems to dry really dry and it collects in all the small creases under my eye, this happens pretty much soon after it dries.

Not sure if that’s anything to do with my primer though but I shouldn’t think so? I can’t complain too much because they are only $6!!!

Overall I do really like them, but I think I would prefer my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer if they had my shade!

I really hope you enjoyed this review!

Something you didnโ€™t know about me!

Good Evening!

So Today I decided to tell you all a little bit more about me! Well, one thing in particular and it is that a few years ago now I got my first sewing machine, and I taught myself how to sew clothing!

Now I am nowhere near perfect and I definitely have a lot more to learn, but recently I unboxed some of my old materials and thought I would give it another go!

This is what I made…

This is a pastel purple two piece consisting of a halter neck bralet and a mini skirt.

Like I mentioned, I haven’t used my sewing machine for a few years now so I was unsure as to whether I would make anything of substance, but I was actually really chuffed with myself!

What do you think?

I feel like this looks like a legitimate outfit so I am pretty buzzing to be honest ๐Ÿ˜!

Would you guys be interested in seeing more of my creations? Because if you are let me know! I would love to show more ๐Ÿค“!

Thank you to all of my new followers and for all of my returning followers, you mean so much to me!

Good Night and Lots of Love

My First Colour Pop Order ๐Ÿ˜ป

Good Morning everyone and happy Friday!!!

I received an order I have been eagerly anticipating yesterday and that was my first ever Colour Pop order.

I have been searching for a good liquid concealer for ages now and I never seem to find a shade light enough to use as a highlight! So when CP blew up on the gram with this photograph:

I was super excited, because there is a shade there that is 100% light enough for me!

I went with shade Fair 02, and I also added Fair 00 to my basket and this is because I already have a concealer that is way too dark for me so I plan to lighten it up with the 00 shade ๐Ÿ˜! At $6 per shade how could I say no!

Like I wasn’t happy enough, when I clicked on my basket I realised there was something else there, at first I was like huh better delete that because I ain’t paying for something extra… Then I looked at the price and realised it was free!

I just so happened to make my first order while CP was celebrating its 4th birthday and I got this gorgeous creamy eyeshadow too for absolutely nothing!

It doesn’t even end there because I got $5 off my first order because I signed up to their mailing list, I meannnn ๐Ÿคฉ. In total I paid around $10 for my items including shipping to the UK

The outside of the box simply said ‘Made in LA’ but the inside of the box really bought the partayyy!

I am so impressed with the whole service!

I will do a more detailed review of the concealers but just look at the shimmer on the shadow…

Can’t wait to use them all properly! I am really impressed with my first overseas shipment of makeup!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post guys! Let me know your thoughts on Colour Pop and what I should order next time!

Lots of Love

My Makeup Progress ๐Ÿคฉ

Happy Hump Day People!

It is one fine day in the UK, the sun is shining and I am feeling positive!

One reason for this is because I just compared two of my makeup looks, one from last month and one from yesterday and I’m like WHATTTTT! Haha I know modest. But legit I’m so happy with how much I have improved in such a small space of time!

I have been letting you guys know about my cut Crease dramas, but the past week has involved me miraculously improving on my precision and I’m literally loving life.

Practice really is the key to being successful in anything in life. I also realised that my makeup photography game has upped too! Unbelievably both of these photographs were taken with the same camera. My iPhone 7+ to be specific. I legit thought the camera quality was at fault in the first photograph but I was clearly just taking rubbish photos ๐Ÿคฃ!

I can still see a lot of areas that need improving, like my brows sorry people but it’s nice to reflect on the progress I’ve made so far!

What do you think!?

Makeup Monday: 100% GLAM

Hey everyone!

Holla at all of my new followers! Seriously love you guys!

It’s Makeup Monday and I’m pretty excited because if you have been following my makeup Monday’s you will know that last week I wasn’t all that happy with the look I produced! But it is a new week and I am feeling great about this one!

Tadaaa! So yeah I went FULL GLAM! I loved working some glitter into the eyes because it just makes you feel like a princess.

I also used a little more blush than usual to really make my features pop.

I blended my eyeshadow from pink to purple to blue and added matching pink glitter to the inner lid. I also used some of the pink eyeshadow on top of my lipstick and added gloss so I could get the colour match on point. Slightly odd but it works haha!

I look slightly dewy which wasn’t something I was planning on, I’m more of a Matte with Glow gal but hey!

I hope you like this one, and if you do let me know in the comments below! I would also love to know which colours/themes you would like to see more of!

If you enjoyed visiting my blog, please give it a follow if you haven’t already!

Lots of Love
