Confidence in a bag - Summer



Nars Bronzer in Laguna
Revlon BB Cream
Clarins Summer Bronzing Compact 
Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot mattifying powder
Soap and Glory Peach Party blush and highlight

Yes, two bronzers. One is more contour colour (laguna) and the other is to add warmth to my usually pale complexion, which is ok in the winter but in summer I look completely out of place. I've recently added the last 3 products to my makeup bag for want of trying them out and finding that they work well with my skin.



Seventeen Brow Sculpting pencil
Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping waterproof mascara
Soap and Glory The Daily Double in Velvet Pink and Brownie
Benefit's They're Real! Mascara

Again with the double products, surely I'm not the only one that puts on two different mascaras. I usually use the revlon one first followed by a coat of They're Real. I love this soap and glory shadow stick, I've been really impressed with their makeup line bar their mascara. 


Real Techniques Blush Brush
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

Not much to talk about that hasn't already been said about these brushes, if you don't own them, why the heck not?!



Still looking pale in the bottom pic *sigh* 

Out of all the products that I use to create my daily makeup look I would definitely recommend the Clarins bronzer, so pretty and rather large so it'll last you a long time :)

Hope you're having a good summer,

When the sun comes out...












In the UK, the sun has been shining full force, or as much force as it can have in England... So naturally everyone runs to the nearest patch of sun they can find and soak it all up (unless you're pale like me, add on slapping on SPF 50 to that sentence). My mum and I decided to go to the beach with woofie a.k.a Lola, and being in North Yorkshire, we decided to go to Saltburn Pier as we've been to Scarborough and Whitby so many times before. It was really cute to see a pier, I always imagine them to be in America not in the UK, imagine the realisation of my stupidity when I remembered that there are actually many piers in England...
After Saltburn, we clambered in the car and drove up and down the coast to find somewhere less windy, which turned out to be Sandsend, a gorgeous little seafront village where we had some fish 'n chips (oh so healthy) and a bit of a paddle in the shore. 




All in all, it was a really cute day and I recommend a day at the beach to anyone who needs a bit of an escape.
Oh and in other news I've finished my exams yay! Time for relaxing in a beer garden somewhere (more like sitting in my pj's inside my room).

How've you all been?

I'm sorry for the absence but y'know, exam season and all. I just wanted to update ya on my life which we all know is so interesting and fabulous (a girl can dream). So a few things have happened, I've finished high school forever (until I have to go back for my final exams), I celebrated the end of school by going out for drinks at Wetherspoons with people from my school and got merry to say the least. It's so strange how even on the last day of school I was meeting new people from school. I've also met a few more new people outside of school and feel like I'm generally growing up more (ugh cliché).

So if you're really interested in hearing more from me you can find me on twitter, tumblr, and instagram.
Love ya'll lots!
