Hello my lovelies, hope you’re all well! I’m a bit late to the party on this one but todays post is bought to you (largely) by my boyfriend as he tries to work out what on earth make up is. I’m pretty sure the original post was by Alice at daintyalice.com.

I asked him what he htinks each thing is for/what it does and this is what he said. Please bear in mind this comes from a man who complimented me the other day by saying ‘your eye make up mascara stuff looks fleeky today’ so I think he did pretty well.


Foundation

“The first thing you put on, to build a foundation for your face. My sister uses too much of it.” (Not true, Jazz always looks great).

Concealer

“It conceals your dark soul and also blemishes and stuff”. He did well on this one.

Face Powder

“The stuff that women are always going to the bathroom to put on their nose. You put them on with those big puffy things right?” I feel like he’s basing this one purely on films/TV.

Blusher

“That shit you put on your cheeks to make them go rosy red”. Close enough, even if I do prefer peach tones.

Highlighter
“The thing you put on to accentuate things like your pretty eyes.” I mean, I’m not quite sure about the eyes bit but it was good until that point.

Contour

“Used to draw lines on your face to make your cheekbones look like razors”. I mean maybe blend those lines a bit but other than that, yeah sure.

Eyebrow pencil
“You use it to draw eyebrows on your face. Some people (not you) draw caterpillars instead.” Alright love, put the claws away.

Eye Shadow

“It’s what you use to make a smokey eye thing.” Other eye shadow looks are available.

Eye Liner

“The scariest part of make up because you put a pencil on your eye.” I mean, he’s not wrong.

Mascara

“You put it on your eyelashes to make them long and stuff.” Cant really fault him on that one.

Lip Liner

“Stuff you put round your lips, I feel its unnecessary.” Well I think you’re unnecessary, Zach.

Lipstick

“You put it on your lips to make them a different colour.” Nailed it babe.

Overall, I think he did pretty well actually. Looks like he might actually listen to me when I talk about this stuff after all.

Have you done this post before? Leave me a link so I can see what your SO said too!

Until next time, I’m back off down the rabbit hole.

In this day and age every single person and their Nan has a Tinder profile, well maybe not your Nan but probably your sister. We all love to judge people’s looks and swipe our way to high self esteem, that little pride when you match with the super hot boy who is only 8km away – result.

During my time swiping I’ve learnt a few things and I bet you’ve experienced them too.
1. How far is 14km?
Us Brits struggle with this mathematical equation trying to work out how many miles is km and where could this person potentially live based on this. Time to hop onto Google.

2. The hottie with no personality.
You’ve dribbled over their photos, shown your mum to see if she approves and planned what you’ll wear on your first date but then they ruin it by being the most boring person you’ve ever encountered. I’m talking ‘what you up to?’ ‘oh nothing, just chilling.’ Conversation over.

3. ‘Tinder doesn’t send me notifications, can I take your number?’
Or any other awkward excuse to ask for your number. Tinder does send you notifications and you do use this often because you messaged me 0.005 seconds after we matched. Just straight up ask.

4. The overuse of the infamous monkey emojis
Nothing kills a compliment like the feature of a monkey emoji. You’re a grown man put the monkeys away please.

5. The false age
Due to everyone signing up for facebook before the required age it’s quite often you click on a ’22 year old’s’ profile because they’re attractive and it turns out they’re actually 17. Now you feel like a cradle snatcher and need a steaming hot shower to wash off all the nasty.

6. The awkward match with someone you know IRL
We’ve all done it, you see that guy/girl that works in your local Spoons and you think ‘shall I swipe right? Just to see’, because you’re intrigued about whether they think you’re attractive or not. So you swipe right and 9 times out of 10 they’ve done it too and hey presto you can never go in that pub again.

7. There will always be people that open with the line ‘sit on my face’
The most common of the opening lines used by sleezebags. I’m all for a cheesy chat up line to get the ball rolling, that’s all fun and games but the statement ‘sit on my face’ has no possible reply when coming from someone you’ve never met. As a result you never speak to this person again, unless it’s politely telling them where to go of course.

8. You will eventually see one of your friends’ other halves on tinder
It will be awful and you won’t know what to do. I like to swipe right and check just how much of an arse they really are before writing up a full report on why my friend needs to leave them.

9. No one ever looks the same in real life as in photos
It’s a known fact. Most people will look worse in real life, I know I do. My advice would be unless you find them insanely attractive in photos you probably won’t find them attractive if you ever get to the point of meeting them.

10. Lastly, the worst of all… The accidental left swipe
No one in the history of tinder has never not swiped left on someone that they find incredibly attractive after having swiped left on countless people. It’s routine, you’re out of control and swiping too fast and then you catch a glimpse of this gorgeous person but it’s too late, your thumb has already completed the left swipe motion. It’s game over.

Hello my lovelies, it’s that time again (you can see my previous liebster award here) I was nominated by the oh so lovely Sinead, who runs loveyourselfbeautyblog to do the tag this time so let’s get started.

liebster-award-nomination

The Liebster award allows bloggers to show their support for other bloggers by nominating them to participate. It is a fab way to show recognition and connect with each other.

The rules are:

1. Tag the blogger that nominated you and Thank them. Thank you once again, Sinead.
2. Answer the questions the blogger has given you.
3. Nominate 11 bloggers for the award.
4. Give those bloggers 11 questions to answer.

So, let’s do this…

1. What’s your go to lip colour?

Definitely nude, I adore a red lipstick but on a day to day basis I tend to reach for nude lipsticks the most.

2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I am really bad at answering these questions… In 5 years, I’ll be 25 so hopefully I may have met someone nice, have a job I love and just be generally happy but I have no idea what my life will look like.

3. What do you do to relax?

I like to have a nice bath, watch my favourite TV show (Grey’s Anatomy) or work on my blog.

4. Night in or Night out?

Night in definitely, my partying phase is long gone… I’m so old before my time.

5. If you could only use one beauty product for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Most likely foundation, I’m not sure how I would cope without filling in my brows but face has some scarring on it so foundation is essential for me to feel even semi-confident.

6. What is your favourite meal?

Hmm, I would have to say Shepherds Pie but with sliced potatoes not mashed.

7. What is your favourite high street clothing store?

I’ve recently been loving New Look.

8. What is your favourite film?

I have a few but if I had to pick it would be The Dark Knight or Skyfall.

9. Who is your style icon?

Probably Ashley Benson or Tanya Burr.

10. What do you enjoy most about blogging?

The freedom it allows. You’re able to express yourself in whichever way you please!

11. If you could buy anything today, what would it be?
Definitely a rose gold Macbook, such heart eyes emoji over this! Imagine the blog photos, oh my life.
I nominate:
Here are my questions for you lovely ladies:
1. What’s your current go to product?
2. If you could only eat 1 food for the rest of your life what would it be?
3. What do you find most difficult about blogging?
4. What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?
5. Would you rather spend more money on clothes or make up?
6. If you could tell your younger self one thing what would it be?
7. What’s your favourite thing to do to cheer yourself up?
8. What was your dream job when you were younger? Is it still your dream job?
9. What’s your favourite post you’ve done? Post a link so we can check it out!
10. What are your top 3 TV shows?
11. Other than blogging, what’s your favourite hobby?

Hope you ladies enjoy!

Until next time I’m back off down the rabbit hole.

Hello my lovelies, today I thought we’d talk about my handbag essentials that I carry around with me everyday along with all the other junk I store inside my bag.

IMG_2695[1]

My bag is from LYDC and I really wish I had a name to give you guys but I got it in the sale at a local department store and can’t find it on the website. Sorry for being awful. Now, let’s have a nosy at what I carry around with me.

IMG_2688[1]

Ted Baker Mint Body Spray – I absolutely adore this scent, I actually got it as a Christmas gift from my Uncle and was not expecting to love it so much. I like to carry this around in my handbag for those days when I forget my perfume, or if I’m wearing this fragrance that day then for a nice top up! It’s a very feminine scent which is floral but musky at same time by the addition of vanilla, for those of you that are interested.

Nude lipstick – I always have a nude lipstick in my bag because it’s what I tend to wear most days so it’s always to hand if I need to reapply. The one pictured is Mac’s Honeylove, which is one of my absolute favourites as it’s ultra matte which I adore.

Red lipstick – There appears to be a lipstick theme forming… I always like to carry a red lipstick with me as it’s perfect for turning a look from day to night. I carry mine around with me all the time just in case I go out after work on a last minute date etc, I mean it rarely happens but it’s good to be prepared! The lipstick pictured is Clinique’s Pop Lip Colour in Cherry Pop.

Powder + Brush– Essential for touch ups so that I’m not walking around looking like a disco ball with all that shine. I’m currently on the hunt for a new powder so any recommendations then please let me know!

Blogger Journal – I adore this journal, it’s perfect for bloggers (as the name would suggest) and has everything you need in one place. I like to carry mine with me wherever I go for when I have random bursts of inspiration. You can grab yours here.

Other handbag essentials that aren’t pictured, as they seemed rather boring and unphotogenic: my purse, a box of paracetamol (just in case), a drink – I must have a drink on me at all times or I panic(!), chewing gum, an extra hair band, my sunglasses (which wouldn’t have been boring to photograph I just forgot, ooops) and finally 3 weeks worth of rubbish and receipts because I’m an awful person.

What are your handbag essentials? Do you hoard rubbish in your bag like me?

Until next time, I’m back off down the rabbit hole.
