Animal Kingdom, Florida :)


U.S Mascara Haul

Hey Girls, Finally ive got time to sit down and start blogging again!
I got back from Florida 3 weeks ago now, and as you can imagine whilst i was there i done a lot of shopping!
especially makeup shopping!
I was mostly trying to shop for products that we dont have in the UK, that way its more exciting and special.
I will be doing a few more posts like this in the next few weeks, inlcuding a U.S nail polish haul.

So to start here are the mascaras i picked up..

Covergirl - Lash Blast Volume

This is a much talked about mascara, and its brilliant! The applicator is more comb like than brush, but it works really well on seperating your lashes and really makes them volumised!
I bought this in Walgreens and it was around $9.

Prestige - My Blackest Lashes

I Love this Mascara! The brush applicator is quite big but the perfect size, this gives you intense black, long and volumised lashes.
This was from Ulta and was $6.50!!!

Fairydrops - Scandal Queen

I had only heard of this right before i went away, im glad i did otherwise i wouldnt of really taken notice of it as its not a brand i have ever heard before.
The packaging is gorgeous and the applicator is so strange, its like 3 balls in a curve shape, but it really is good to catch every lash and it keep my lashes curled all day.
From Sephora for $24.

MAC- Zoom Lash

I know this available in the UK, but i still thought id include it as i got it in a MAC set from the store in the Florida Mall. I have used this before years ago but didnt really like it, this time around i do!
The wand is quite small and thin but is really useful for an easy application and no mess, it makes your lashes very black and very long.
MAC set that also included a lip gloss, 2 shadows and a powder $40

(I also got the Maybelline Great Lash mascara that you can buy here but was only $5 in the states so couldnt pass on buying a couple of backups)

I'm Back!!

Hey girls, well im back from Florida and it was amazing! Im so gutted to be home and Disney is all i can think about at the moment!
I got back on Monday afternoon and was straight back to work on Tuesday morning which sucked.
I will be updating my blog again regularly now that im home and will have some great haul posts and reviews of some US products i bought, as well as looking at some of my holiday snaps!

I need to upload all my piccies onto my laptop first so my next post should be in a few days!
I also started a new VTCT level 2 cosmetic makeup 16 week fastrack course on friday night and i love it! It will be completed around August so i will then be a level 2 makeup artist and can hopefully persue the career ive always wanted!

Hey Girls im off to Florida on the 20th March for my 21st Birthday present! There are lot'ssssss of things that i want to make i sure i get whilst over there and thought id share with you..

Sephora by OPI - Ive wanted to try these for ages, so i will definately be picking up a few of these !

Sephora LashStash Deluxe sampler mascara set - This contains 10 high end deluxe mascara samples, which i think is perfect for trying out new mascaras! ive wanted this for ages as ive seen it on youtube videos so i will be buying this pronto.

Bath & Body Works candles - oh how i have been in desperate need of these! again caused from the many gurus on youtube talking about these, i really need to get some ! aswell as the sprays and shower gels, i mostly want the candles. Though i think i wil have to get the smaller ones as the large ones may be a bit heavy in my suitcase ha!

Juicy Couture Dame Sunglasses- There is a Juicy store right opposite the hotel..need i say more ;)

PINK by Victorias Secret - The hoodies the bottoms, and obviously the original victorias secret underwear is a must. I also want to pick up some of the beauty stuff.

Now they are the most wanted things, i obviously am going to buy more as i want to go to Forever 21, Old Navy and Ulta to get some US drugstore products from the likes of EOS, Milani, Wet and Wild, Stila ect woo im so excited any other things i should put on my list??

My recent nail designs..

Hey girls!

The past few weeks i thought i would switch up my boring one colour nails and try some nail art. I have never really tried before just because i thought i wouldnt be that good or because im too impatient.
I tried doing some leopard nails last week and this is how it turned out..

Now i certainly know these are not was my first time at them and i liked them for the fact id never tried it before. I used topshop "big smoke" as the base colour, a random white rimmel colour and then liquid eyeliner, i got lots of compliments whilst i had my nails like this and i loved it ! Next time i am going to make the leopard spots as such a lot smaller and also do some gold ones aswell as white!

next i used my barry m instant nail effects for the first time! i got it the day it was released but ive never been sure if i actually like the crackle look or not. Since then i keep seeing swatches and reviews of the new china glaze crackle polishes so i thought it would use it !

I actually like how this came out, i only painted a really thin coat as i wanted the crackles to be small not really chunky. The base coat colour is chine glaze "cheers to you". I do really like this now and regret not using it sooner!

Do you have any crackle polishes?

Just a quick update!

Hi girls, I haven't been that active on blog this past week. Half of the reason is because we have new owners in my work, which means lots of hard work and extra effort put in which mean extra hours , therefore I come home have tea then go to bed lol!!

The second reason is that my parents went on holiday last weekend and have Taken my camera that I use ! I will try and do some posts with my iPhone but it's really not the best quality! All will resume as normal from next week :)
hope your all well.
