Short haul!

Hello people :), 
I was very naughty while going to Asda the other day and I decided to pick up a few items as they were under £5!! The first thing was Rimmel's Colour Rush which is a dupe of Cliniques chubby stick. I was impressed by the fact that this chubby stick was moisturising and very pigmented. It stayed on my lips for at least 8 hours! I definitely recommend this!

The second item was scandaleyes eye shadow stick by rimmel in bulletproof beige, I love this colour because it looks really good in the corner of my eye along with my Clinque eye stick in chubby fudge. 


I'm thinking about a haul of what i've brought the last 3 times i've been to primark, which is a lot of things! I might do a video so let me know what you guys think?! 

Keep Smiling!

Updates

Hey guys ignore the design at the moment, currently I'm updating :)

First ever Glossybox! October Edition!

Hey guys! So this morning I received my first ever Glossybox which was really exciting as I had never had it but heard a lot of good things! 


I am impressed with the design of the box and how it is laid out although the products weren't the best... 

The theme is 'Dark Romance' which I thought was good and looking at the cover of the magazine I hoped there was a deep lipstick in the box but unfortunately not. There were only 2 products that I'm really excited to use so I hope that next month it will pick up. 


So what's in the box:



MeMeMe Cherub's Blush - Cheek & Lip Tint
This is a liquid cheek and lip tint which is one of the products I am excited to use because I have never used one before. I tested the products tonight and so far the lasting wear is impressive.
Full Size: £5.50 (12ml) www.mememecosmetics.co.uk


Katy Perry Killer Queen Fragrance
Although I was disappointed in the fact that I could have gone to my local boots and picked this up, I love this product... It smells amazing and is long lasting! I got compliments on this when I wore it today!
Full Size: £29.50 (50ml) www.boots.co.uk

Monu Illuminating Primer
I won't be using this for a while so there isn't a lot to comment on, I still have 2 primers to go through but it claims to give a flawless illuminating effect. 
Full Size: £24.94 (50ml) www.monushop.co.uk

Premae Multi-Vit Smoothie Serum
This claims to be the first allergen-free brand so this is suppose to be kind to the skin, I'm definitely going to try this out as it smells really good!
Full Size: £22.50 (50ml) www.premaeskincare.com/shop

Gamila Secret Cleansing Bar
This bar is 100% natural and smells good! It's suppose to give a deep and gentle cleansing of the skin while also hydrating and encouraging the skin to self repair. This I will definitely be using. 
Full Size: £21 www.houseoffraser.co.uk

I'm really looking forward to getting next months! What did you guys think of this months?
:) 
Keep Smiling!

Wildwood, Canterbury (Date Night)

Hey guys! 
This post is a little review/update on what I did this week and where I went. As it was Alex and I's date night so we decided to go to the place where we went on our first date. This is a small little restaurant on Canterbury High Street called Wildwood. It's a grill house and the 3 times I've been there it's been amazing!! It's a little on the pricey side but well worth it even as a student. Although if you are a student then there is good news!! They are currently doing a 25% off food discount for student which is definitely a benefit! It's a really cute restaurant and well worth a visit! I would recommend it to anyone I see, the food is brilliant, friendly staff and an amazing atmosphere. If you are going on a date or want to take your parents out (and let them pay) then it's the perfect place. I would fully recommend the Peri Peri Grilled Chicken and also the Chocolate Fudge Cake with Vanilla ice cream. Here are a few little pictures of our date:

Cute little candle
Raspberry Bellini
My Calamari start which was gorgeous! 
Alex's Rosemary and Garlic bread.
My half eaten peri peri chicken with cajun mayo!
Alex's Steak and Gorgonzola Sauce
We then shared a chocolate fudge cake.

Topshop/Clinique Make-up haul! (Clinique FREE GIFT!!!)

Hey guys! 
So today I went into Canterbury with my friends to do a little shopping and came across this deal in Clinique (Fenwicks) and I knew I needed a new primer so I dragged a reluctant Alex in and had a nose around. The deal was that if I brought 2 products (one being a skincare product) then you got a free gift which has a number of different samples in it. I decided on buying the Universal Face Primer and an Eye-shadow Chubby Stick.

03 fuller fudge - chubby stick eye-shadow tint (£17)
super-primer - universal face primer (£20)

So because I brought these 2 products I got a Free Gift of 7 products ranging from make-up and skincare.

The Free Gift!!!
These are the 3 make-up products that came in the free gift: 
High impact curling mascara - 01 Black
Blushing blush powder - precious posy

Almost lipstick - flirty honey (842)


This is the almost lipstick on plain lips, it's slightly tinted but more glossy so I think this would be good if you want to moisturize your lips with adding a slight tint. I then popped into Topshop and picked up 2 of their lipsticks and of coursed used my student discount ;)! I also got: 
Repair wear uplifting firming cream
Repair wear laser focus wrinkle correcting eye cream
Makeup Remover for lids, lashes and lips
Liquid facial soap mild



I have been meaning to get some Topshop lipsticks for a while because I've heard a lot of good stuff about them in the blogging world so I picked up 'Brighton Rocks' and 'Screen Siren'. These are two shades I am really excited to try out! 


Screen Siren
Brighton Rocks


I still have a massive Primark Haul that I need to film so that should be up soonish! Also within the next week I have a new video going up (My boyfriend does my make-up) so keep an eye out for that as I will post it on here as well!



Keep Smiling!
