Urban Decay Makeover

urban decay makeover experience

Picture's my birthday, my mum and dad are shouting at me to get up and open my card but making me promise not to go back to sleep. Little did I know, that the reason I wasn't allowed to go back to sleep was because they had brought me a makeup lesson with Urban Decay which started at 10am, cue mad panic to get ready!

Funko Time: Fluttershy

'I'm not shy!'

My 7 year old niece knows me so well. My brother was trying to find a Funko that I would like for my birthday and she picked this one out for me, she has definitely studied my collection well.

JUST LOOK AT THE CUTENESS! Fluttershy is just perfect.

This is the first My Little Pony Funko that I have in my collection and I absolutely love her. I really like My Little Pony, I was never into it too much as a child but as I have grown up I seem to love it more. I definitely prefer the newer type of pony though, I find the older ones a little scary!

Day Out: West Midland Safari Park

As part of my birthday week celebrations (yes I make my birthday last a week), me and Lewis decided to go to West Midlands Safari Park. If we decide to go to a Zoo or Safari Park, we normally go to Whipsnade or Woburn, as we live really close but decided to go on a bit of an adventure this time and head here instead.

Barry M Aquarium Nail Polish - Caspian + Arabian

barry m aquarium

I have been feeling very Mermaidy lately, well more than normal. I seem to be loving anything shimmery and sparkly, so when my friend gave me these Barry M Aquarium polishes I couldn't contain my excitement. I have wanted to try this range for ages, but indecisive me could never settle for one colour.

Pop in a Box - May 2016

It has been a good few months since I last treated myself to a Funko Pop. There isn't too many places near me that sell them, so I like to stock up my favourites and have a little haul every now and again. I think that is why I enjoy getting Pop in a Box so much, each month it's nice know my collection will increase by one at least!

This month I was so excited to receive Ariel...

I am just going to throw it out there and say that I think that this is the best Pop in a Box that I have received so far! We all know I have a huge love for The Little Mermaid, I already have 'mermaid' Ariel but 'human' Ariel has been on my wishlist for ages. I know with Pop in a Box, you only get pops you have selected, but I think there are always a few that you would prefer to get more than others and this is definitely one of them!

Everything about her is just perfect, especially the cute little Bow in her hair. I just love the sassy foot poking out underneath the dress too. One things for sure, I definitely need more Princess Funko's in my life!

Max Factor Excess Longwear Eyeliner - Excessive Cobalt

Max Factor Excess Longwear Eyeliner

As soon as the sun comes out, so do the bright colours! I wish my wardrobe was the same as my makeup stash, I have a feeling that will forever be filled with grey and black clothes. The brighter makeup definitely likes to make an appearance in the summer months. I love bright eyeliners, nothing beats my beloved Urban Decay but I am always open to new options so decided to try out this Max Factor Excess Longwear Eyeliner.

Funko Time: Joker Batman-Batman

HA! HA! HA! 

This Funko is such a random one. It is part of Lewis' collection and makes me chuckle whenever I look at it. As far as I know, you can't buy this pop seperately as it was part of a Loot Crate monthly subscription box but I'm sure it can be found online somewhere. *cough* eBay *cough* I love the Joker and think that this such a cool combination. My only niggle is his mouth, surely the Quality Control department can see that the lines for his teeth aren't really in his mouth properly! Other than that I love the fact that it is Batman in Joker colour!

Smashbox Try It Kit - Lash Primer + Mascara

Smashbox Try It Kit - Lash Primer + Mascara

I've mentioned countless times on here before how much I love Mascara. The longer and thicker it makes my lashes, the better! I am always on the hunt for the perfect Mascara, however my favourites are changing constantly. I had never seen this Smashbox Try It Mascara Kit before, but my mum mentioned it and once I saw it, I knew I needed to try it out.

20 songs that...I love to play as soon as the sun is out!

I am so happy that the sun has finally decided to make an appearance. I am currently sat in my garden with a tropical juice writing this post up. Which is pure bliss until the bee's come along and attack me! As the weather is beautiful today, I thought I would create a little playlist of songs that I like to listen to in the sun.

Estée Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer

estee lauder illuminating perfecting primer

I must admit, I never really used to use a Primer when applying my makeup. I think that I never really understood what they were for, so could never really see a difference. I think that and the fact I was probably using the complete wrong type! Last time I went to pick up a new foundation at Estée Lauder, the assistant mentioned the Illuminating Perfecting Primer to me. At first I thought that it was just another upsell, which I suppose it still kinda was, but when she swatched the foundation with and without the primer I was sold.

Monthly Wishlist: May

may 2016 wishlist

Well, here we are in the month of May already! I must say that May is my favourite month of the year. I think it must be something to do with the fact my birthday is in May, the sun *is normally* out, there are 2 bank holidays and it is normally the start of me finally being able to wear my summer clothes. 

A new month calls for a new wishlist obvs, so here are my top picks for this month..

L'Oreal Color Riche L'Huile Nail Polish - Violet De Nuit

L'Oreal Color Riche Nail Polish Violet De Nuit

As you can probably guess, purple is completely my colour lately! I seem to find a colour, become completely obsessed with it, get bored and then move onto a new colour obsession. My hair normally resembles this trend too. Currently I am loving everything purple. I felt that I didn't have quite enough purple nail polishes in my collection (thats what I keep telling myself anyway) so picked up Violet De Nuit last week.
