14 things I wish I could tell my 14 year old self

Thursday, 30 July 2015

1) Don't buy Dream Matte Mousse in the darkest shade, you leave the house with horrible lines every single day and you look like a twat.

2) That boy you think you're in love with? You're not. Get over it and enjoy being 14.

3) Don't jump off a bridge into a river wearing white linen trousers and a white top- then proceed to walk home like it.

4) On the above note- don't wear that outfit ever again.

5) Remember that you have a gravel driveway and automatic motion light outside when you're attempting to sneak out, you will get caught one day.

6) Don't try so hard to be one of the popular kids, they will use you for all of the awesome parties you have and because your mum is so chill.

7) Don't be upset that you still haven't kissed a boy and you're falling behind compared to all your friends, you'll be late on everything else too.. It doesn't matter.

8) Maybe learn how to swim a little better before doing stupid stuff in water because chances are you will nearly drown and be scared of open water even when you're 18.

9) Just deal with the fact that you won't have boobs til you're 18 okay, don't let the boys calling you Justine No Tits upset you because they most likely have even smaller dicks.

10) You're going to make so many mistakes, just embrace them, they will help shape you.

11) Don't push your true friends away, they're still here for you now

12) Being friends with 16/17 year old boys wasn't cool, they weren't even fun to be around.

13) You are a complete fool who will continue to embarass herself so just embrace it.

14) Last but not least DON'T YOU DARE TOUCH YOUR BROWS. 

Epilepsy: Where It Got Bad

Tuesday, 28 July 2015

So if you've been reading my epilepsy story here the past few weeks (if you haven't I covered where it began and the teenage years) so today I'm going to be talking about when it got bad.

Right here's a little story for you that kind of explains it. I was on study leave, meaning I only had to go into school for my exams and it was the middle of June, I only had 2 exams left, a geography one which I was dreading- I'd spent all night revising for it and was stressed to the freaking max, and a science one the next day which I wasn't too bothered about. So on the morning of this geography one I walk to the bus stop on my own, hood up, headphones in- no doubt blasting Katy Perry, a few of the other kids soon turned up and it was just like a normal day when bam

I suddenly remember being in the middle of the road, covered in blood and sick, people I didn't recognise surrounding me, paramedics, a bus full of kids, people screaming. I just remember going in and out of conciousness. Apparently what had happened was I fell face first into the road and started having a tonic clonic seizure, the people at the bus stop called the ambulance, someone ran to my house to get my sister and step-dad, someone else called my mum. Anyway, the next thing I remember is being in A&E puking up literally every 5 minutes. 

Excuse the quality of this photo, it was taken on a blackberry and I never expected it'd end up on the internet!

Because of how I had fallen (straight onto my chin- I hadn't been able to put my arms out to stop the impact because I was technically unconscious) the Dr's wanted me to have some x-rays on my jaw because usually when someone falls like that their jaw is broken- and what do you know mine was too.. but what was weird was that only one side ended up being broken? The specialists found that odd but whatever.

This then meant I had to have an operation to fix it, between we breaking my jaw and having the op there was a week I think? I remember literally having to live off yogurts and ice cream because I couldn't eat!! For the actual op I know they wanted to put a metal disk into my jaw but for some reason they couldn't do it. I remember waking up from the operation (which was my first one by the way) and panicking because I couldn't talk?! They had wired my jaw shut so I couldn't open my jaw- this again meant I couldn't talk, or more importantly eat- I was on a complete liquid diet and the hospital gave me this awful Complan Shake stuff which is usually used for the elderly, it's got all the nutrients and that which you'd need to stay healthy in but it tasted absolutley horrific so I refused it. I actually lived off Dr Pepper and tropical juice for a few weeks, which meant I lost a hell of a lot of weight in a very short amount of time.

Whilst my jaw was wired shut I only had 1 fit and it was a fairly short one and I just remember being sick and it struggling to get out because my jaw was wired shut! It was horrible!! 

Another thing which I was most upset about was the fact my prom happened whilst my jaw was wired up, it was literally a week after my op so my face was still swollen, my stitches only got taken out the day before prom. I seriously remember contemplatling not going because I just looked horrible and I could't talk to anyone so what would be the point? Luckily I did get talked into going and I so glad I did because it was so nice to see everyone all dressed up and all together for one last time (it was annoying not being able to talk though)

I'm going to split this post into 2 because this is way too long for just one.. but that is the story of when my epilepsy got bad again.

What's in my friends makeup bag...

Sunday, 19 July 2015

Now I don't know about you but I'm such a nosey person so I love watching and reading what people have in their handbags and makeup bags. I did a whats in my makeup bag not that long ago which you can read here, so when my friend Jasmine came round with her beautiful makeup I asked if I could have a little rummage and then had a brainwave that I could show you guys what was in her bag! I've wanted to do this for a long time but haven't got round to it so I took the chance this time!

First up we've got moisturisers and primers. She's got a Neutrogena oil-free moisturiser- I haven't actually tried this before so let me know if you have. Then a Laura Mericer Primer, I've seen this used by many people and they love it, again I haven't tried it so can't comment but it does look like a great product. Lastly she's got 2 bottles of the Benefit Porefessional, I love this product and think that it's such an amazing primer so I was shocked when Jasmine said she hadn't actually used them yet- she's going to love it.

Foundation wise Jasmine only has one product and that's the Revlon Colour Stay, which is an amazing product, it's so long wearing and Jasmine's skin always looks flawless so it goes to show you don't need a high end foundation for flawless skin.

I have literally never seen so many concealers in one makeup bag in one time. She has 6 Collection lasting perfection concealers- 5 of which are empty!! Then she's got a nearly empty Maybelline Fit Me concealer, I love this so I liked seeing this in her bag! She's then got the LA Pro-Conceal concealers in a light colour for highlighting, then in a darker colour for contouring. I used these both for the first time last night and they are wonderful products and I need to purchase them! There's the infamous Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer, and the Rimmel Lasting Finish concealer- I've never heard of this before? So do let me know what it's like! Then she's got a non-branded concealer, I don't really know what it's like so I can't comment. Although Benefit LemonAid isn't really a concealer it does fit in here. But that's it she has 13 concealers in her bag, oh my.

Brow wise she's got the holy grail that is Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade, literally if you still haven't tried it- DO IT NOW, jump on that bandwagon because it will change your life. She's then got a L'Oreal Brow Artist gel which is another product I've never heard of.. I feel I'm loosing my touch.

I'm surprised she's only got 3 mascaras because I seem to carry round like 5 at one time despite only ever using one? She's got my favourite Benefit mascara They're Real- when this was launched last year I was so obsessed! The Bourjois 1 Seconde Volume Mascara is another cult favourite. The name has rubbed off on this last one but it looks like a Maybelline one?

She's got a fair few choices for eyeliner. There's the Soap and Glory pen liner which I love. Rimmel Scandaleyes pencil, I haven't used this myself but it has such a great pay off when I swatched it! Again this product has no name- I think it's Maybelline? And I have no clue what that last one is but it's just your typical liquid liner!

Jasmine is Queen of contouring/highlighting so it was no surprise when I saw these 3 staple products in her makeup bag. The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer which is one of my favourite highlighters of all time, it's so creamy and gives you that perfect glow. Benefit Hoola Bronzer is the perfect contour shade. Sleek contour palette which you literally can't go wrong with- it's got the blush in too which is an added bonus.

She's got this beautiful MAC Brown Shadow Quad which I'm bloody obsessed with. And a very nice Real Techniques Bold Metals Brush which I really need in my life.

Jasmine basically looks like Kylie Jenner so she obviously has to have the infamous Soar pencil and Velvet Teddy lippy. She's then got this brown lip pencil from Natural Collection at Boots which is surprisingly good quality!

Posh Picnic

Posh Picnic

I've teamed up with House Of Fraser for this awesome posh picnic post. I was asked to pick my favourite products that I would have at a picnic (I decided my picnic would be a posh one, most likely at the bottom of the garden) 

For clothing I chose this beautiful Uttam Boutique maxi dress, the print on this is so gorgeous and perfect for summer. I also love maxi dresses because they are so comfy, and they're perfect for hiding that food baby you get when you eat too much- which will happen. I chose these adorable Dune sandals, again where can you go wrong with typical sandals in summer? And they'd be so comfy!

When I think of a picnic I just think of a nice big blanket thrown on the floor, then to make it a posh picnic I thought the cushions would look fab. I managed to choose quite a few different styles of cushions- my favourite has to be the fish- mainly because it's a cushion shaped like a fish? Then again I'm obsessed with the explore one! And it's only £12 so I feel like I probably will pick that up at some point...

You've gotta have a nice picnic basket to hold all the food in- I went for a classic looking basket but the inside section which is blue gives it a different look. I'm loving the whole green/blue theme I've got going on- they're such summery colours, so I chose a few utensils that match those colours. The bowls and cups with the blue birds on have to be my favourite- such a gorgeous pattern! And how could you forget funky cocktail stirrers and little umbrellas? That is basically what summer is about.

After writing this post I actually really want to have a posh picnic.. I'll probably just end up eating toast in bed with my window open- practically the same thing when my bed covers are a beach right?

Here's the links for all the products in the picture

Epilepsy: The Teenage Years

Wednesday, 15 July 2015

So as you may have seen in a post from last week I've started telling my story about my journey with epilepsy, you can read where it all began here. And today's post, just like the title states is all about the teenage years.

Lets start with when I started high school which wasn't technically me being a teenager but yeah. From year 7-9 I don't actually recall having any absence type seizures and I know for sure I never had any tonic clonic seizures. I also don't remember taking any medication to stop anything? I'm pretty sure I didn't even have tablets to take- I think this might be due to me moving around quite a lot in such a short amount of time so loosing touch with my epilepsy Dr and not going to a doctors? As far as I remember I think I had a few appointments with my epilepsy nurse and doctor, they obviously seemed happy with how I was doing.

When I was 15 (so year 10 and the first year of GCSE's) I remember quite vividly having medication- I was on Keppra. I also remember very vividly having absences whilst I was speaking to friends, and sitting in class- mainly because I'd be chatting away or listening one minute, the next it would blank and I'd feel like an utter idiot because I couldn't even remember what I was talking about?

I think the reason these seizures started up has something to do with the stress of all the work I was doing and probably all the hormones in my body- I will admit that I wasn't very good at taking my medication- I'd remember to take my morning dosage at break time at school, but when it came to night time and weekends and school holidays I probably didn't even take them at all.

This pretty much sums up my high school/teenage epilepsy story- the next section is where everything becomes more clearer and more serious because it wasn't that long ago so keep an eye out for that.

Slimming World- Weeks 1-6

Monday, 13 July 2015

Okay so this is a post I never really intended to do but I've decided it may help my journey even more if I've got support from you guys too? Right the reason I started Slimming World was because I was incredibly unhappy about the way I looked and the food I was putting into my body, I was wearing size 16 clothes, eating pretty much toast smothered in butter, full fat cans of coke (usually about 6 or more a day) getting about 3/4 takeaways or meals out a week and just snacking on general shit. I'd had enough of being the fat one and knew that I didn't have the willpower nor the knowledge to do it on my own so me and my mum joined Slimming World. 

I'm probably going to regret this but my start weight was 14st 12.5lb (208lbs) which actually makes me feel ill when I look at that number. Here is also a before photo taken at a cheer competition a few weeks before I started and is probably the truest representation of what I looked like- this was a group photo but i cropped my friends out, again when I look at this photo all I can see is fat.. I'm the tallest one there with bleach blonde hair so I'm going to stand out anyway but when you add in my ill-fitting uniform too.. that's too much.

My first week was actually really easy, I didn't stop eating? I was having cereal for breakfast, omelettes and salad for lunch and for dinner I was having big bits of chicken with home made roasted chips, vegetables and jacket potatoes with beans- all of these things were counted as free foods *I'm not really that good at explaining it but basically a hell of a lot of foods are free foods and you can have as many of those as you want, then there's your syn foods which you're allowed 15 of a day, so 15 syns per day which seems like not that much but really when you're filling up on all of the free foods you don't really need your syns?* When it came to my first weigh in I was petrified mainly because I hadn't stopped eating? I was scared I'd missed something out and was going to put on weight, but in actual fact I lost a massive 6.5lbs! That's nearly 1/2 a stone?! 

Week 2 was abit harder mainly because I was starting to miss my crisps and was at home a lot more so my mind was on food, but I still kept at what I had been doing the week before and ended up loosing another 1lb which is when I received my 1/2 stone certificate and sticker. Loosing 1/2 in 2 weeks seems like so much and when you hear it you think that I must of been starving myself but in reality I hadn't stopped eating!

Week 3 I had began to find my mojo and knew what I was doing and managed to loose another 1lb, I also discovered the Iceland Slimming World Ready Meals and wow they are amazing, my favourite is the salmon pasta salad, it's so easy to cook and so yummy. Week 4 was a tough one because I literally hadn't stopped snacking and had been out a couple times- so it was no surprise when I found I hadn't lost anything which again isn't bad because I knew where I had gone wrong and knew what to do to fix it. 

Week 5 was incredibly hard, I literally hadn't stopped snacking on bad foods and had even had my first takeway in 6 weeks (wasn't even worth it) but much to my shock I managed to loose 1lb (honestly still shocked) Week 6.. ah week 6, this has been my worst week by far- I went out for meals/pub lunches 5 times.. And only one of those times did I actually choose a healthy-ish option? I again was snacking on crisps again, so I wasn't surprised to see I had put on 2lbs.. I will say I was upset by this but I'm going to use it as my motivation for the next few weeks- I know where I went wrong and I know how I can change it so I'm okay with that!

So because of that my current weight is 14st 5lbs (201lbs) I hope when I check in with you next time to be down in the 13st area. I will say that I do feel so much healthier in myself, I don't feel as tired and stodgy (can I use that word to describe myself?) My skin is looking better, my face has slimmed down and a lot of people have said that I look like I've lost weight, so it's all good!

REVIEW: Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser

Saturday, 11 July 2015

Some of you may have seen this little purchase I picked up a few weeks ago (read the haul now) I was recommended this by a lot of other bloggers who claimed it was like the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser- I haven't tried that yet but I've wanted to for a long time so I took the cheaper option and have been using it every night for the past few weeks.

Since using it I will say my skin has cleared up- however I can't rule out the fact that this could also be because my diet is better and I'm actually taking my antibiotics for my skin? Either way it can't be a full coincidence that my skin is less spotty since using this right? 

Naturally radiant brightening hot cloth cleanser is formulated with a unique energising complex and infused with kiwi fruit and mulberry extracts to help revive skin's radiance and even out skin tone. Enriched with nourishing cocoa butter, this rich and creamy formulation melts into the skin and cleanses away makeup and impurities, whilst also providing gentle exfoliation, leaving skin feeling renewed, soft and ultra clean.

-Cheap, it's only £5.99 and you only need a tiny amount for your face so this will take a while to use up.

-Takes makeup off so easily, I put it all over my face (and eyes even though it says avoid eyes?) and rub in and it literally melts into my skin, I then soak the muslin cloth in hot water and gently rub my face in upwards and outwards circular motions. It's so gentle on my skin and takes off even my dramatic eye makeup  with ease that normally need 2 or 3 cotton pads soaked in micellar water?

-Face is so ridiculously soft after using, I don't feel the need to moisturise after using this product (I still do) but say if I forgot my moisturiser I would be happy to go on without moisturising.

-Skin is better, my skin looks brighter which is good because it claims to do that, and in summer especially I'm all about trying to get that glow from the inside and I've found I'm not having as many breakouts.

-Because this product does give you a gentle exfoliation you don't need to exfoliate on top of this, which is amazing because I'm all about shortening my skincare routine.

-The smell is one thing that puts me off- it's not a bad smell but considering it's got kiwi, mulberry and cocoa butter in you would of thought it would smell nicer than it is? But that's more down to a personal preference

-You only get 1 muslin cloth- which is good in the sense that some products don't supply them at all, but it would be nice just to have another one just in case you need it? But again there's' nothing stopping me from buying another one myself.

Would I buy it again? Without a doubt, this product is amazing- I still want to try the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser however I really do like this one and for the price you really can't go wrong!

*On a side note how do you all clean your muslin cloths? What I've been doing at least once or twice a week is soaking it in hot water and using a gentle hand soap (I've got Dove at the moment) and just rubbing that in the areas which have been stained by mascara- the areas with foundation on usually come off just by soaking it in the water, I then continue to wash the cloth until there's no dirt left on the cloth and just keep ringing the cloth out to be sure there's no soap left on the cloth.*

Epilepsy: Where it began

Thursday, 9 July 2015

As some of you may know I have epilepsy. Because this blog is a reflection of my life I wanted to include this and help explain what's happened to me throughout the years, so I'm going to create an Epilepsy series that I can use as a place to put into place everything that's happened to me, give other sufferers a place to look and just point people in this direction when they say something stupid about epilepsy to me.

I'm going to start with where it all began. I was 9 I believe when I first got diagnosed. My twin sister got diagnosed a few years before me and she has absence seizures (basically where she will switch off for a few seconds) I remember my first seizure happened when I was at home, apparently I was eating dinner, watching TV and next thing I was on the floor having a full tonic clonic seizure (this is what most people think of when they hear seizure) I was taken off to hospital in an ambulance and that started the many different tests and hospital appointments.

From what I can remember I only had 3 tonic clonic seizures in my childhood. Obviously the one stated above, then there was one when I was 9 still and it happened at school and apparently I just threw up all over the floor and walked to the toilets- I can't remember in full detail but I do know I didn't have a tonic clonic siezure it was more me just switching off for however many minutes. 

The other one I had is one we're not really sure of- it happened when I was 7 and at my nanny's- we were watching Peter Pan and one minute I was watching it the next I woke up in bed- according to my nanny and sister I just sat on my nanny's lap and wet myself and wasn't very responsive so I got put to bed- now this was before the epilepsy card was even on the table so we all just put it down to nothing, but obviously it all added up once I was diagnosed.

I was put on Epilim (a tablet that I'm back on today wahey) I don't remember the dosage, I just remember it being medicine form for a while which was revolting so asking for tablets and getting given this massive bad ass purple tablets which are quite daunting for a 9 year old? 

That sums up where it began- I do apologise for the shortness of the post and my lack of memories? But it was 10 years ago (typing that made me feel incredibly old) and I don't remember much from that time in terms of my medical history.

Fashion Student Lingerie Collection

Tuesday, 7 July 2015

As some of you may know I've just finished my first year of my level 3 diploma in Fashion and Textiles at college. For my last project we got full control with what we wanted to make, what we wanted to use- we basically did what we wanted. When we were first told i was abit stumped for ideas- most people started with a theme and then turned it into a garment. But as we were discussing what we enjoyed doing throughout the year I realised i really enjoyed making a bra in my second project, so I knew lingerie was what I wanted to do. It was really hard to do as i was so used to making dresses and wasn't used to working with such delicate fabrics and doing such intricate designs.

I wanted it to be as sleek and modern as possible, I took inspiration from Oh So Lovely Intimates in the aspect that they make delicate, dainty items and I wanted to do the same. I did have 2 other bras but I didn't photograph those on a model aka my friend so I'm just going to share with you what I did photograph and two boards I made for my portfolio. 

I have really really enjoyed my first year as a fashion student and I can't to see what happens next year!


Sunday, 5 July 2015

I've wanted to do this post for ages now as I love the usual what's in my bag and thought that you lovelies might want to see what I carry in my cheer bag, or there could just be some cheerleaders who want to know what their peers carry around (I'm always watching these videos on youtube!) but haven't got round to it, so I thought I'd photograph what i took in my cheer bag to Live Your Legacy Nationals on Sunday. If you were wondering how I did I got 3rd place with one team and 4th with the other! I was sooooo happy!!

Okay first up we've got the bag itself, I use a backpack because it can fit most things I need for a competition and everything I need for training. I got this       bag from my squad website (I won't link it as I would imagine no one reading this would actually want to buy a bag from my gym?) It has 3 sections, a front pocket with all the badges on which is pretty big, a larger pocket behind it which fits everything in and even has an area for my shoes, then there's a tiny pocket on top.

To personalise my bag and make sure I can tell which one is mine surrounded by however many others I've attached badges from competitions I been too and bows I've bought/worn with my uniform or made! My favourite bow is probably the white one you can see clearly with my name on, programme name and both the teams I'm on!

 First up we have the small pocket at the top, I keep all my random stuff in here, so we've got a mini bottle of hairspray- so handy to have at competitions because it saves so much room and there's always the right amount I need! Then there's my boyfriend's spectator wristband? He gave it to me to put in my bag because he didn't want to bin it? So I'll probably put it on my memory board. Then  we've got some hair bobbles, you can never have too many of these and there's always someone at practice who needs one. I've got a Katy Perry keyring which was on my bag but broke so i've just kept it in this pocket, then there's the medal I received at this competition (this medal is amazing it's literally beautiful and I would happily wear it all the time!) Next up is an ID card I need for certain competitions and lastly there's some headphones, if I want to sleep whilst we're travelling I'll just shove these in otherwise everyone chatting keeps me awake.

In the front smaller pocket I only had a few bits (usually it's crammed) we've got my sunglasses which the majority of the time you need because we're always travelling to the competition when the sun is rising and I'm not even joking you get like blinded haha! Then we've got my purse, I always say I should get a smaller purse for travelling/competitions because all I need is coins/notes and my card but I haven't got round to it yet so I just carry my every day River Island purse with everything and more in. Then we've got probably the most important thing- my uniform *I do fold this up and keep it in a plastic bag to protect it whilst travelling* I do love my uniform though it's just so pretty!

Lastly we've got the biggest pocket. First up we've got my shoes, they're kept in their special compartment in this pocket, then we've got my makeup bag which is just full with so much just in case stuff! On that note if you would like to see a How I do my cheer makeup/hair or what's in my cheer makeup bag do let me know! It's um very different to my usual looks! Then we've got my training sports bra and nike pro shorts, once I've finished competing I like to just wear this and my season top because I feel so much more relaxed! Then there's my Freya water bottle, this is so handy for training because I can just keep refilling it meaning I won't get dehydrated whilst training this summer! Lastly is the best present ever... So they have little pop up shops at competitions and at this competition they were selling these blue tops from Cheer Athletics (only the best cheerleading programmes in the world) and I just had to have it so Hayden being the best ever bought it for me!!

REVIEW: Rimmel London Sun Shimmer Tanning Mousse

Friday, 3 July 2015

 I got given this latest product from the tanning team at Rimmel at the Cosmo Summer party (read about that event here) and was so excited to try it! My sister actually nabbed it from me first and I will say it looked amazing on her so I was even more excited! I decided to wait until my cheerleading competition to try it as I needed to tan (and it wouldn't matter if I went really dark!)

Rimmels first self tan bronzing mousse that gives and instant colour and develops in an hour to give a natural looking streak free, even tan that lasts up to 7 days. Skin feels nourished after immediate application and comfortable all day. The lightweight formula dries quickly leaving no residue. Transfer resistant, does not stain clothes.

The lady at the Rimmel stand at the Cosmo party also said that it didn't have that biscuit/usual tan smell.

-It is instant, colour if fully developed well before an hour
-Lasts well on the skin, now I've showered, sweated (gross I know) and it's still going strong
-Is a pretty natural colour- not got an orangey glow that some tans give off

-Smells like tan- BADLY, you literally must have no nose if you can't smell it, it's worse than my St Moritz. 
-It's transferred onto the white side of my quilt, white top, toilet seat- admittedly I haven't washed them yet so I can't say whether it's going to stain but it certainly isn't transfer resistant.
-So does not dry quickly, I also remember the lady saying it didn't leave you feeling sticky like other tans- oh you were wrong again, I was stood there for like half and hour trying to dry, then I finally got in bed and was still sticky- not impressed

Lets get this last thing off my chest... IT GAVE ME RANDOM PATCHES ON MY ARM AND BOTH LEGS. If you saw me on twitter on Saturday night you would of seen my meltdown about these awful splotches on my legs specifically- mainly because I had my cheer comp the next day and I wear a skirt? 

I literally can't quite work out why it happened because I used and did everything exactly the same as when I usually tan apart from the actual tanning product. To say I was upset was an understatement, I was stressed to the max about these hideous things on my leg. So unimpressed.

Would I buy again? ABSOLUTELY NO WAY ON THIS PLANET. Sorry Rimmel but I'm just going to stick to my trusty St Moritz.

June Favourites

Wednesday, 1 July 2015

I literally cannot remember the last time I did a monthly favs? I always seem to forget or just don't have anything relevant to share with you, this month however I've got sooo much to share with you!

Beautylifemichelle- I first found Michelle through Snapchat I believe and her videos are amazing! She is beautiful (looks like an olsen!) and she's got an Irish accent which is the best to listen to and she lives in Australia?! She's an all round amazing beauty youtuber!

Bleach London- As some of you may know I did my hair pink a few times this month and I've loved it! It looked so cool, I really want to try the violet colour next and see how that turns out.

Nip & Fab Bee Sting Body Cream- I recieved this at the Cosmo Summer Party (read about that here) and I've recently reviewed it on my blog and you can also read that here.

Complexion Perfection contour brush- I got this brush at some point last year and I seriously love it! Complexion Perfection are such a underrated brand, all of their brushes are seriously amazing! This contour brush is amazing it's so good at getting right into the hollows of your cheeks to get that perfect contour!
*photo credit Complexion Perfection site*

Malin & Goetz face wash/moisturiuser/lip balm- This trio was a freebie in Elle magazine and I love it! They all smell amazing (like grapefruit) The lipbalm is really thick and you can feel it really working into your lips, it really cleared up my dry lips! The face wash was perfect for a quick cleanse in the morning and the moisturiser was so thick and really helped my dry skin! I'm defo going to purchase full sizes of these!

Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleanser- This was recommended in a skincare chat as it's supposed to be a dupe for Liz Earles Hot Cloth Cleanser, so I was so up for trying it and I'm so happy I did! It literally removes my makeup like magic? Its not too harsh or anything! A full review is coming in a few weeks once I've tried it out properly but I love it!

Fashion Bloggers TV- When this launched on E! last year I knew I was going to love it- in case you haven't heard about it it's about 5 Australian fashion bloggers and it's amazing! And lucky for all of us because it's now on youtube too with the most recent episode being uploaded really quickly! Definitely check it out they have some amazing tips!

Slimming World- As some of you may know from twitter I joined Slimming World this month and I've lost 8 1/2lbs so far! I love it because I literally haven't stopped eating, but I feel healthier than ever and my hard work of eating good is starting to show! I'm so excited to share with you more results!
