May Favourites!

Hi Guys,

It feels really weird to be sat writing my favourites when it's only half way through the month. Then I remember that it's actually June and just wonder where my time has gone. Its a strange phenomena; I'm going to stop talking about it before this post becomes a little too 'Don't Hug Me I'm Scared'!Sorry for that reference, should we just get on with the post? 

Models Own Contour Brush- We all know that I'm not the biggest makeup pro so I obviously don't actually use this for contouring. That level of skill is a bit too pro for me, so when I bought it I didn't really know what I'd use it for. The reason I love it is because it's so good for powdering! It's been really warm and I haven't wanted to sweat off my makeup so using this big fluffy brush to pack on powder is really good.

Pretty Woman- My God, what a film! I watched it for the first time on Tuesday and it honestly got to me. The amount of emotion through the characters was so moving, Julia Roberts acting was perfect. The story line too, was amazing! I've saved it on my planner so I can watch it again without my family there: just to get the full effect!

Burts Bees Lip Balm- When I first started using this, I didn't really notice a difference. My lips just felt like they usually did, which wasn't super smooth, but in no way chapped. I stopped using it for a bit last month and the skin on my lips was really dry and breaking apart, which made me realise what a difference this lip balm is actually making. It's made of beeswax- which, I know, sounds kind of gross- so has a lot of merits in that respect. As well as that, it tingles when you put it on which is so satisfying! 

Sudocream- This is one of those things that all girls seem to use, but no one really talks about! You put a bit of sudocream over any acne you have and voila, it seems to have gone! Obviously, it doesn't entirely clear it but it does help to lessen the appearance of any spots. I do it over night when i go to bed, just because it's very obvious when you have done! (sorry the photo's upside down) 

And that's all I'm going to talk about. As always, there were more I could have mentioned but I didn't want to make my upload too long. Please don't forget to add me to your circles on Google + so I can be at 200 followers by October! I have an Instagram too, which is linked like usual. Have a great week!


Thanks for Reading

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
