In a wonderland of makeup...

 A few weeks ago, Wonderland Makeup, a UK based and cruelty free makeup brand kindly offered me some products for me to review for you guys, an eyeshadow, blush and primer.



The Studio Finish primer £15 for me, is perfect as someone who does suffer from breakouts time to time and having oily skin, a silicone based and oil-free primer is the best for me as it smoothes over my imperfections and allows my foundation to go on just that little bit easier. The packaging of the primer is so simplistic yet elegant at the same time, which for me makes the product that bit better.



Rosey's Red Blush £10, as you can see the blush is a very rich rouge colour and does have a shimmer finish too, so for those of you who like a lil sparkle on their cheeks would love this. But, for me i think it is much better as an eyeshadow than a blush as I am fairly pale so having a dark blush doesn't go well but I do love a warm red eye colour to help make my blue eyes stand out even more, it is super pigmented and blends out effortlessly too! Do you like a darker blush on your skin?


Lastly, to this eyeshadow in the shade Ash, I feel like many of us tend to steer clear of silver eyeshadow for some reason that I am unsure about, but just putting it onto the inner corner of your eyes can really brighten them up. For me, spritzing a little bit of MAC Fix+ onto your brush before using this eyeshadow will really help bring out that pigmentation and sparkle that we all desire in a shimmer eyeshadow. Also, the best thing about this? It is only £7.50, which for me is extremely affordable!

The fact that all of their products don't break the bank when you go to purchase them is also one of the reasons I like this brand, they offer a wide range of products, some of which I wouldn't usually go for, but thats what makeup is all about isn't it? Experimenting!

Have you tried anything from Wonderland before?



Uni Room Tour!

I can't believe I have made it to the second year of uni, time really does fly!

As a second year, the 'stereotypical' thing to do, is move out of uni halls and into a house with some of the friends you have made over the year. 

When my friends and I were looking for a house that was relatively close to our uni, we didn't have much difficulty, thankfully. We looked at around 3 houses and within that we found the house we all agreed on. 

TOP TIP: Look for a house at the start of December / January, as after that you'll notice that the best student houses are gone and you'll be left with the not so fab ones, or you'll end up having to go through your university housing scheme (which isn't a bad thing, but theres no guarantee you'll be with someone you know)

Top 20 under £20

If you're anything like me, you'll always be looking for a bargain or something 'cheap' yet cheerful, so I thought why not add all my favourite 20 items under £20, this may be a mix of home, beauty and skincare, we'll just have to see where this post takes us...

MAKEUP: 

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer £4.19:

This has been my holy grail concealer for years now, I cannot stress enough how long this lasts on my skin without creasing and how well it hides those big under eyes I have on the daily. If you're looking for a concealer that lasts and doesn't break the bank at all then this bad boy is for you! However, the shade range is a little bit poor I must admit as there are only 4 shades, that is the only downside to this product.


Whats in it for me: Body scrub review

Having been a fan of 'Whats in it for me' for some time now, when they were looking for brand ambassadors to help promote and review their products, of course I jumped at the chance!

8 things I've learnt through my first year of blogging

Through, what seems like a very quick year of blogging, I have come to learn and realise a few little things along the way. So I thought i'd share them with you, whether you being a new blogger or someone who has been doing it for a while, I'm sure you can relate to a few of these.

  • The blogging community is amazing. After joining twitter for blogging purposes and over the months of following and interacting with fellow bloggers, everyone is so so supportive and they all genuinely want you to grow and be the best version of yourself. Whatever mood you're in there is always someone else feeling the same as you. And the retweet accounts are amazing, to a name a few: The Bloggers Hub, A bunch of blogs, GRL POWR are all accounts who do always try to retweet your tweets and get you as much engagement as possible.

It's hydrating but is it a genius?

Ever since L'Oreal released their new range of moisturisers I have seen so many bloggers rave about them and after seeing a wonderful blog post by ktmy.co.uk I really thought i myself that I had to try it as for someone with combination/oily skin i always find that I can never really find a moisturiser that truly works for my skin, apart from the Nivea Day Cream that I find extremely helpful although it is quite thick sometimes.
