summers over but exciting news!

Hi everyone!
Hope all of your holidays have been great! For me, I have been to France for a couple of weeks, I've gotten closer to friends that I'd drifted away from and kind of realized whats more important to me. This post is kind of an update as my room is literally a tip (I'm decorating it) so all products and clothes etc are packed away :( Butt, I need to post so I'm improvising here.. this will most likely be photo heavy haha

We climbed up this mahoosive sand dune in France, it was literally two steps up and one step back!

I just had to do the legs selfie, because it is the first time in like forever I started to get a tan! That for me was quite fascinating :'D

Now, I have been teasing you lot for a while over some new stuff I will be doing but never actually said what it was so I will be revealing it now.. I've really gotten into nail art and I have started doing tutorials on my youtube channel here. However for a while I've been wanting to get into special effects stuff and I had been looking into what I can do about it. Anyway, I have received some special effects things and I am really excited to discover I'm not that bad at it ;)
(stop reading if you don't like gore)

This is the first time I have ever tried special effects, I sculpted a bullet wound and then made it look more realistic, I have to say that when I had almost finished doing this look, someone knocked at the door. It was a boy coming to call for my brother and he said 'Is harr- What the hell! you've been shot!?' I had forgotten it was on my face or I wouldn't have answered the door, but I told him it was fake and he still didn't look to good!

My mum wouldn't even touch it when it was dry, saying it looked real haha :')
I then wanted to see if I could transform this look a bit, do something different... Since I hate and I mean hate China dolls, and dolly things like that I went with that idea; I shall be a shot doll!

I did this look right before I went to bed so I didn't have too much time, I think this is called a ventriloquist doll? All products used are Mehron, apart from the lipstick on the doll transformation, that's just a cheap lipstick I didn't mind getting grubby.

I will be doing tutorials and doing these looks again, I really enjoyed it... Maybe a little too much if that's weird I don't no... 
I will be starting to make tutorials and uploading them to my youtube channel so please, if you are interested in nail art or special effects then please do go on over and subscribe! I hope to eventually start vlogging etc.
So this is the trigger for re-branding my YouTube and other platforms so I can be open to a wider audience to more things I enjoy doing.

What do you think of these special effects? Have you ever tried special effects?

No professional tools nail art TAG

Hi! I've been super busy clearing out my bedroom so space is very limited at the moment.
I've started my driving lessons now, had my first one lest week and my second one today... pooing my pants (not literally) ahaha

Because space is very limited, it's meant that my nail art tools have been packed away and stacked, so I decided to do a super simple nail art tutorial where I use no professional tools or professional brushes. The results? not too bad!


I've had quite a bit of time on my hands since I've finished college. I mean I've been applying for more jobs full-time or part time to go alongside my job but nobody want me yet haha! I've redone my youtube channel, I am no longer:
But I am now known as:
Partially because I won't just be doing nail art anymore, I have some great videos in line. The new channel name is a mix of my last name really, and some randomness. I'm thinking eventually I might give vlogging a shot, doesn't hurt to try! :P 

I have a few blog posts lined up, I plan to show you my bedroom when it's done. I have designed it myself and bought all the things, I'll be having a go at upholstery and my room is going to be a bit of mish mash - mainly zebra with hints of classic vintage and modern art.  
I've got more nail art coming up - I'm sure you will love the next one!

Did you like this nail art? Do you have professional nail art tools? Anything you would like to see me blog about or make tutorials for? What do you think of my YouTube remodel?

If you would like to follow me on instagram you can find me here - my instagram page I will approve requests, ask for follow back and you'll get one.

If you are a brand or a blogger and would like to collaborate then please do get in touch :)
I am going planning a giveaway too, I'm not sure whether to to separate ones or maybe a giveaway featuring a couple of different brands - get in touch if your interested. I'll host the giveaway on this blog and apply a rafflecopter where entrants must follow both our twitters and join this blog.

Waterproof makeup testing!

Hi!
I have been back at college this week which has been surprisingly good, ive not got long left at college now so im going to put a lot of time back into my work to try and get the distinction :) it will be a bit hard as ive lost weeks while ive been ill but im sure if I stop getting so easily distracted I can get my head down and the work done.

I have saw so many people posting asking what drugstore makeup is good for summer, swimming, tough against humidity and wont budge easily. So ive took it upon myself to dive into this one. 

Before I even start to review these products, I am not saying you need a face full of makeup to go swimming or on holiday, nor that you need any - but people are asking so I am answering.
(before eliminations)

So today at lunch break I went into town I got a couple more 'drugstore' makeup items for summer that claim to have good waterproof and tough ability to not budge. I had done some research into waterproof makeup, watched tutorials etc and I went out and got a couple of things a few weeks back - to cut a long story short I wasn't happy with them. Possibly this is because other people put the makeup on and then simply dipped it in water... what happens when your splashing around in water and the makeup gets a bit bashed around? 


I had previously bought  a few Rimmel London Skandal'eyes eyeshadow sticks. Now these products say on the 24hr and waterproof. 
From that i expected them to not budge. Boy was I wrong! I went swimming with some friends and the black and the white smudged all over, I wasn't wearing much but I wanted to review some waterproof makeup as ive saw many people asking about the best ones. The product gives a nice high-shine luminous finish, the sticks are smooth... In my opinion the sticks were too soft, even after waiting 10 minutes, if you wipe your finger over it the product will slide.

I have tried technic aquamax, the product is a nice natural mascara which adds volume, length and darkens the lashes without clumping. I can wear this one on a daily basis as I like the natural look. However, when I went swimming it just ran off. The other day at work it was raining, like proper slinging it down and once again off the mascara went. Obviously I don't wear this mascara for its 'waterproof powers' as I've yet to see them, I just wear it as a normal mascara. I was very disappointed with that product overall. However I wouldn't say the brand is bad, I have many nail varnishes from technic - they're great for nail art too! I just don't like this product as it doesn't do 'what it says on the tin'.

Today I went into superdrugs and was going to buy more scandaleyes eye-shadows in other colours and give them a go. 
Then I came across the Collection range of products and saw that they also have eye shadow sticks which also say waterproof. So I put back the scandaleyes and got two of these so I could test and compare. 
video
I've come home and put some on my hand, instantly I could tell the difference between these and the scandaleyes. These ones don't look wet and give a more natural look and are super bendable; the pencil its self isn't as soft and breakable. These collection ones dry super quick, I then tried rubbing them - they wouldn't budge. Ran them under the tap - still didn't budge. I think these eye-shadows are great waterproof eye makeup. As you can see in the video clip above, the two scandaleyes smudge and slide all over with not much pressure whereas the collection ones stay put - To test how strong they are for when water bashes at them, I'm a rough swimmer haha) They are in natural shades too so you can look pretty and natural this summer :)


The next thing is eye liner, I had read that gel liners are the best products for being waterproof. So had bought Rimmel London gel liner, I did basic winged eyes and then went swimming (the same occasion as the Rimmel London scandaleyes eye shadows) however I was really happy with this product. It did fade a little but that wasn't a problem. This product says it's 24 hour wear, no smudging smearing or flaking and is also a waterproof formula. I usually use liquid formulas so this took a bit of practicing.

I also purchased the Rimmel London volume x10 waterproof mascara which was good for volume and length, this product stayed on nicely. No running, no smudging and no bits falling onto my cheeks or anything.

I bought this Collection 2000 a while ago and opened it recently. This is good for length and colour, I don't particularly think the volume was anything much but it looks more natural which is the look I prefer. I went swimming in this and it did loose its length a little but didn't run or smudge.

I don't have bad skin I general so I don't cover my face in foundation, I put a little under my eyes and on my nose to even out the skin tone. Personally I think sun cream on my face is more important to have on my face than foundation when I'm on holiday, although the foundation I use is SPF 15 i think. I have saw foundation on the internet during my research, however if your on holiday its best to let your skin breathe. I could be wrong but I imagine they would be very thick etc and not good for your skin. I had read that cream foundations are best if you find it necessary to wear it. Obviously matt foundations are probably not the best option as they wont be matt once they're wet. For that reason I don't use powder to set the foundation under my eyes, my skin is not oily so my foundation doesn't shine.

A good cream foundation that I love is one by Mehron which is the Celebre pallete. This contains the most popular shades of the Pro HD in a lightweight pallete. I use the lightest shade for highlights and one of the medium tones for contouring, I find that these stay on when I go swimming without streaking. They are very thick creams so I only use a little amount, I can use the highlighting shade daily, however I tend to use a powder for contouring (quicker) unless swimming then I use this but I love love love this pallete!

This final product isn't a waterproof one however it's great for summer and also something I got for FREE! Superdrugs had/has an offer on where if you spend... I think it was £3.99 you get a limited edition Mardi Gras lip balm for free. It smells of strawberry sooo good! I had picked one of the up to buy, then browsing I saw there was an offer to get it for free so even better :)

getting beady with it

Hi!
Hope your all good! :) I am slowly recovering a little every day... Although still not managed to not fall asleep in the daytime yet. I'm going to go into work tomorrow I think, hopefully it won't be too much for me or it'll be a long day! :s

This post was planned to be up weeks ago but with all of the complications all posts had to be postponed so many apologies for that, and near future posts may be slow too (read the previous post for more info)



Back to the post! Summer is almost here and the weather is warming up. This year I'm really into the boho styles in general; hair styles, clothing, jewellery etc. Personally I think beads, feathers and things like that are a total match for this trend and also the season. Whenever I go on holiday I wear beads, even if its a beaded anklet - I'm a sucker for anklets too I have sterling silvers, handmade, beaded, chains... I like them ;P

This piece came in a sealed plastic with the babi-online card inside too. The packaging is pretty simple, which totally works!

This is a close up of the piece, the bracelet is made from brown and purple wood and silver beads.

Above is me wearing the bracelet.. I'm still ill and have like, black eyes so I cut them off ahaha

I really like this bracelet, it's adjustable too so it fits my tiny wrists :)
The bracelet is bang on trend, I mean literally all the clothes shops I've been in lately has some beaut ranges of clothes, shoes, jewellery and bikinis and accessories *swoooon*

If you like this bracelet you can get it here for £5.00
Babi-Online is currently one of FashionFixHunter's collabs so you will be seeing more from them! :)

Peekaboo!

Heyy!
If your one of my blog readers then you may have noticed that I haven't posted too much recently. There are a few reasons and I feel that I owe you a bit of an explanation really so you don't think I've just dropped off the edge of the planet or something :S (if you follow me on twitter I had tweeted a few things). The posts will probably be a little delayed for a couple weeks just while I get over a few things - may be sooner, hopefully - I just need to get back on my feet first :)

First of all, I have been doing all of my exams at college, I've successfully passed Spanish now *YAY*. I just have my travel and tourism ones to go now - one where I have to stand up in front of the class and perform and pretend to be a travel rep... Everyone finds it ironic how I do modelling and cat walking yet I cant find the courage to do this -.- I need to mentally prepare myself... A lot!
So I have loads of coursework to do, and we will be planning the end of year / end of college party which is also part of our coursework.

The next reason is, that I have been a bit poorly recently and ended up in hospital. I was on drips, gas & air, medication etc and I was on nil by mouth for two days! They wanted to give me a blood transfusion too... but the worst part of being in hospital for me, was people around me that came to visit was drinking chocolate milkshake and I'm not even aloud water. I've had time off of college and work so that's just poo. While I'm recovering I just can't seem to stay awake for too long, literally yesterday we had family over for dinner at 1, I went to bed at half two and work up- at seven... then went back to bed at ten! The hospital said it was something to do with my liver etc and viral infections in there so it really took its toll! This wasn't caused by being skinny but that didn't help.

After all of this, I have decided that being strong is the new thing now. I am going to focus on that, I mean I was fit before but now I am going to go into 'beastmode' or something ;P Being skinny comes with so many risks, I mean I could have got this illness even if I was bigger but when it comes to times like this it really does make you realize. I get compliments on my figure a lot, and especially doing modelling it's the figure the industry see as ideal but in the real world - It's not healthy. I'm not going to put loads of weight on - I'm going to focus on strength and even muscle and to any out there who thinks muscle is manly, I'm not talking about being a cannonball or anything like that.

The pictures above are what I'm going to work towards. I would like to point out that this is not achieved with a poor diet, you must eat! This is not is any way 'thinspiration' because that's not healthy. I'm changing for the better now, I've been doing my squats being a good girl ahaha!
I will share my journey with you as I see progress, we now have a home gym weight lifting room so I will be taking full advantage of that. I've cut things like crisps out of my diet and have been eating lots of protein and vegetables, only drinking water and lots of it!

I'm Back!

Heyooo!
So I told you all before I went away for a couple of weeks that I will be 'out of the blogger office'... Which is my bedroom aha! That's because I went right up north to a tiny island to see my relatives. I wasn't really sure what to post today because with the unpacking my suitcase and coursework I'm busy with getting ready to go back to college, as well as preparing for a business trip tomorrow *breath*. So I thought I would share with you a bit of my trip?

First of all, it's super cold and windy there. Although the people who live there say it's just breezy... they must have adapted to the weather and climate or something because I was 'frickin' frozen! So wearing super nice clothes are probably not something you'll find yourself wearing, instead you'll wear layers, hoodies, coats, body warmers, hats gloves etc. Anything to keep warm!

The island is surrounded by these hugeee cliffs! With the strong wind... It's best not to go near the edges. Although when I saw them I was like 'but first, let me take a selfie!'

It's safe to say I was told off for leaning backwards over the cliff... I can't help doing these stupid things! :S

Theres lots of sheep that are literally 'free range', they're on the roads and everything, saw plenty of lambies! I was quite fascinated by that...
There were deers, and they ran up to me and then this guy burped in my face. True story bro!

One day when my family was ready to go out, my hair was taking donkeys years to dry so I ended up staying at the cottage, when I'd done my hair I thought stuff it! I'm going to go outside in only a top and body warmer, freeze to the bone and take some photos :P
I have taken wayyy to many photos on this trip!
*the hoody and hat in these photos are from 4ItGirls they have a sale on at the moment*  ;)

Here's something else stupid I did... This was on the same day I was left on my own at the cottage, which is surrounded by fields - one big one home to the rams. I was sat at the gate and they just stood there looking at me (one is quite close his head is next to the post on the left of the photo) and they wouldn't come any closer. Which resulted in me climbing in and shouting BAAAA BAAA and they didn't like it, they charged at me pretty fast if I do say so myself, but I ran away faster and climbed back over the fence. Rams are not friendly animals O.o

There isn't really much more to tell you about this place since there wasn't really anything there. We had no wifi at the cottage. I never thought living without it was so hard, and I no there are people out there with less, but when you take these things for granted and then be stripped back it's crazy!

Gorgeous Swarovski elements!

Hiiii! Sorry for the delay in posts! Been super busy O.o
I'm heading for a distinction star in my coursework although im pooing my pants for the practical... where I have to act as a transfer rep and do a big speech and role play in front of the class and teachers... (just a little secret - I stutter, forget what to say then laugh my head off and usually end up facing the wall doing a presentation).. Yet I can catwalk in front of many people :s I guess its because I don't have to speak there, I usually get told to zip it... :P

I went on a business trip last week to an airport for a conference and to meet different departments and see some of the equipment they use. I wore a red dress with a loose blazer over the top and black tights. If your from England, we all know its been pretty windy! That dress went straight up to my armpits while I was at the bus stop! D: I practically ran from the bus station to college attempting to hold my dress down. -.-
(sorry for the bad quality image, i didn't use my good camera)

Below is a picture of the a piece of security equipment airports use:
I don't no if 'scanner' was suppose to be spelled as 'scanna' but moving on....

we also had a really nice day out at center parcs with my family and cousins
we went bowling, then off to the boathouse and I asked for 'the two canoe things joint together', they knew what I meant ahaha :D When I was trying to get into it I stepped back and stepped in a deep puddle thing that someone had dug right near the the lake -.- resulting in me emptying my shoes on the boat, we didn't no how to go forwards or turn. It would be safe to say people found it very funny, I mean is is that funny seeing someone empty all the water of their shoes? Okay maybe it is ;) it was probably like watching an episode of Chuckle Brothers or something! Then we walked up to the foresters in and had dinner, went back to the boat house and me and my cousin got a pedalo :) Then we went to the swimming pool, must be just my luck I got squashed between a few 'very large' hairy men on the rapids -.-  I couldn't breath and had to get out for a while. 

So this post is mainly about a piece of jewellery I was sent, I chose this one because its so simple and most of my jewellery is weird, in your face or really big. So I picked something minimal but beautiful and eye catching.
The item came really nicely gift wrapped - this is perfect if your looking for a present for that special someone, whatever the occasion! Inside is a black leather looking box with a plain card sleeve. the pendant is wrapped in black tissue paper to prevent it getting damaged in the post.



This is not my usual jewellery as I said before, but when it comes to dressing up I don't no what jewellery to wear so this will definitely come in handy! 
The necklace pendant can be easily worked into daytime outfits, evening and occasions but this piece really sets it apart from others. This has a beautiful glow  from the unique yellow diamond tone Swarovski Crystal Element. It has a big Swarovski yellow diamond tone crystal element which is circled by a 14 carat gold plated ring which has 30 white diamond tone Preciosa Czech crystal elements! Each of these has been hand set in a single course. The chain is also very pretty, I haven't had one with that sort of chain before, its very thin and sparkles with a lovely glow.
- free delivery world wide
- arrives to you in presentation box and gift wrapped

You can get this necklace here for £22!

What do you think of this jewellery? Would you wear it? Think its even great for mothers day?

Please could you do me a favor? :) Please watch this YouTube video and 'like' and comment on it - on the actual link under the video. It's for a competition that ends at the end of the month, please help me out (share it on your social media platforms etc) and I will be more than happy to return the favour! :D

Aces Laces #1

Hii! sorry ive not posted for a week or so, I've been so ill! Literally only got out of bed to go to the toilet or to get a drink for about 4 days! missed 2 days at college and a day at work... Now my dads ill! -.-
As you may no already, I did enter the competition to win the ipad mini last month and did pretty well and suppose to be entering this month too... But I'm SO impatient D: it hasnt come yet and the competition closes at the end of the month and I can't enter until my box arrives; so yeah ... Come onnnn box!!! Get your giddy up! :D
So got some catching up to do ahaha

I was sent a little package from Aces Laces 

containing 3 packets which were opaque and had surprise shoelace designs in. Aces Laces have series of shoes laces which people order and have no idea what design they have until they open them
The idea of the packets being opaque is that people collect, swap and share them. You could use them in your shoes, football boots, ice skates, I have friends that turn them into bracelets etc.

I opened the first packet to find a white sparkly pair, these are super cute! I'm not sure whether to put them on a pair of my boots, or even my new pair of sparkly converse shoe things - because... A girl can never have too much sparkles ;P I saw these shoes on sale and I thought they looked weird, took a closer look and though I'd actually wear them in the summer :D

Social Links:

Have you seen these products before? what do you think of this pair? would you wear them?

Please could you do me a favor? :) Please watch this YouTube video and 'like' and comment on it - on the actual link under the video. It's for a competition that ends at the end of the month, please help me out (share it on your social media platforms etc) and I will be more than happy to return the favour! :D

Mehron and Sarah G cosmetics makeup look!

Hi!!!
guess what?! I made dinner today for my family... yes that's a big deal because I can't cook, but I can cook some Italian dishes so that's what I did :) I can bake pretty good too so I did a rocky road cake for dessert #yummy :) I don't think i poisoned anyone either so its all good, accept for burning my finger - which ive got in a glass of icy water as I'm writing this post!! :P

Just a quick update too... I didn't win the 'box of omg competition' but I got messaged from them saying it was a close one though, which makes me feel a little better I guess ahaha. I will be entering again though when I get he next box so please help me out again, I'm very grateful to each and every one of you who 'liked, shared and commented' the the video entry! :D

To the post! I have created this eye makeup look which I think is pretty simple and easy for you all to do. I've done a picture tutorial for now but I will be filming tutorials too which I will upload to my youtube channel. I have a few nail art tutorials already up and I'll also be doing special effects ones so if any of that sounds good to you, please subscribe to it :)

This is a combination of Mehron's velvety smooth E.Y.E powder eye shadows and Cheek powders. They never cake or crease! They blend really nicely and super evenly so you can create dynamic eyes and vibrant cheeks goon enough for the red carpet, on screen and stage - these products are actually used for that so you know that if this stuff is worn by people who are super concious of their looks, they can't have it fading, creasing or looking cakey, then you will look amazing too! This product came with a brush which I love because it's so soft and flexible. I got this from Treasure house of makeup.

This is the Precious Jewels eye palette from Sarah G, it has a mix of rich jewel colours which are super blendable and pigmented. You could wear a single colour or create your own look! It came with a tool which has a brush one end and a smudger on the other so basically you have everything you need to use this pallet!

I started off by using the lightest shade from Mehron's eye/cheek pallet and I brushed that across the whole of the eyelid. I then used the white from the Beauties Factory pallet to apply to the inner part of the eye and a little underneath - this also helps your eyes look more awake! Then I used the purple shade from Sarah G and applied to the crease, then applying a thin line under the eye with the blue from Sarah G pallet too. I din't apply too much of any of these products I wanted to add a more glamorous look with some more products without looking caked in makeup.

I struggle to use the brush which comes with the eyeliners so I used the one above and dabbed a little of eyeliner fluid onto it. I applied that above and into my lash-line, following my bottom eye line up to do the 'wing', I didn't want that to be too dramatic so I didn't bring the 'wing' out to far. I then used a Mehron Kohl eye liner to line the water line. I got out my Precious Gems powders (which I love!), applied the Opal one to the inner corner of my eye to the center - it has a lovely sparkle, but not too much. Then I applied the Amethyst shade into the crease and towards the wing and blended it in. Finishing off the look with Max Factor WILD MEGA VOLUME mascara.

I now aplologize as my camera battery died so I had to switch to using my iPod camera
I did this look right before going to bed so I only had enough time to do one eye ahaha! However I think you can see how much bigger this eye makeup look makes your eyes look! It's nothing too dark and it's super easy to do! :D

If you want to get any of the products from above you can get them here:
Beauties Factory eye pallet - £25.99 (comes with pieces leopard brush set)
Mehron's precious gems powders - £6.85 each. (previous review here)
Each product I listed I really like, they are all long lasting, bright and pigmented colours which can be used to create endless makeup looks. :)

you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl!

Hiii! So I'm trying to get the blog back on track, what with me starting at my new job and aiming for a distinction at college. Its half term holidays now though :D ... still gotta work a couple days but oh welllllll O.o But my mum said shell take me to the shops so I can spend my first months wages when I get them >.< I'm going to get a phone on contract - mine is literally ready to retire, I've dropped it sooo many times yet the screen has never cracked, the sound is fine... But the camera has fell off?! whut?! and it keeps ringing people too, like ill be at college talking then go to check the time on my phone to see its been on call for like 5 minutes -.- #embarrassing so yeahh it needs replacing now ahaha. I want to get my parents a little present too, or take them out for a meal or something :)

I was going to write this post tomorrow but I'm going to be busy then so I'm writing it now before I go off to bed. I think from now on I will be blogging at weekends, or maybe Tuesday afternoons but don't worry I wont stop blogging :D










Country Girl is a brand that I had been interested in for quite some time now, at college everyone is from towns or cities and they say I'm a country girl because I live in a teeny weeny village in the countryside. Well 'you can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl' . There are lots of products I love the look of on this site from hoodys to t-shirts to personalized apparel and they all have a 'country' theme running through them. Country Girl is now a sponsor / collaboration of FashionFixHunter's - as you can see their widget on the blogs side bar :)

I received some products from Country Girl, including this perfume. I am one for fancy bottles, and the boxes too, often not wanting to throw the boxes away! The bottle is heart shaped with golden writing on and rose tinted liquid. Its just a really simple but pretty bottle. The perfume it's self isn't my usual go to - I usually opt for fruity, sweet perfumes. This one however is quite subtle, just enough scent to be noticeable but not to much to be all up in everyone's nose holes!

Here is the parcel and what came in it, I'm going to save a couple of things for another post :)

I got a pink hoody with angel wings on the back, believe me I am stocking up on my hoodys! It is sooo cold! The hoody is super soft, it has a double sided pocket on the front to keep your hands nice and warm >.< I love angel/ kind of spiritual things so when I saw this hoody, I loved it! :) The wings are printed on the back, but they do similar angel wing products where the wings are covered in rhinestones etc.

If you like the look of the perfume you can get it here for $45.95 now $19.95!

I have tried to find the link for this exact hoody on the site but struggling to do so, but there is one in black here, for $36.95. I will post the pink ones link if I manage to find it :)
