Day out in London Town!

Hey guys,
So this Wednesday Alex and I took a couples trip to London and we went around the Science and History museum, had lunch in Covent Garden, brought some tea, looked round the aquarium then went to Angus Steakhouse! It was a really good day even though it was cold and wet but it was Alex's first time in London properly so he enjoyed seeing all the sites!
I just left my hair natural and did some bluey silver eyes with red lips :) which is my favourite lipstick from topshop.
Here are a few piccys of my day! :D 

I also vlogged so here is the video that I uploaded: 

Keep Smiling!

Glossybox: November 2013

So this is my second ever Glossybox and I am impressed with the products this month. I have tried all of them individually and I have to say I love all of them!

Elegant Touch Rapid Dry for Nails (Full Size RRP £3):
This product promises to have you nails touch-dry within 60 seconds which sounds like the perfect product for someone who is either on the go or like me does their nails late at night. I have tried this product while doing a christmassy effect on my nails and I have to say that although my nails weren't touch dry in 60 seconds they were dry a lot quicker than without using the spray.

Yves Rocher Cocoa & Pistachio Hand cream (Full Size RRP £1.95):
This leaves my hand feeling soft and is really easy to blend in and the smell is incredible and although doesn't last very long still makes my hands a lot better than before! My boyfriend has currently stolen this from me because he loves the smell and is always complaining his hand are dry.

Vichy Idealia Life Serum (Full Size RRP £29.50):
I haven't come across this skincare brand before but after researching I've heard a lot about it and it comes highly recommended. These smell amazing and leave my skin feeling fresh and looking radiant. I would definitely recommend these on first impressions and I look forward to seeing the long term effects.

Emite Make-up Micronized Eye Shadow in Nect (Full Size RRP £16.80):
The range of eyeshadows are free from oils, parabens and perfumes making them perfect for those with sensitive eyes and that wear contact lenses which I do on a night out so I was excited to try this. I used this on the inner corner of my eye for that wide awake look and I also as a base when I'm doing a natural eye look.

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush (Full Size RRP £12):
A juicy lip stain and moisturiser in one. I have now used this a couple of times and I have to say I love this product, it doesn't last as long as lip stick but it definitely have a moisturizing factor while also being pigmented, great to put it quickly on when getting up early for university. 

I'm really looking forward to next months box as it's christmas so hopefully it will be christmas themed!

Keep smiling!

#BritishBloggerSelection - About You Q&A!

So this weeks #BritishBloggerSelection theme is "About You Q&A/Interview" so here it is:

1. Why do you like blogging?
I like blogging because it allows to me openly express my opinions on things and allows me to share my input to others. 
2. How did you come up with your blog name?
My blog name is from my alias which is 'themadorange' so I thought this is a blog about my life, beauty, student and everything else related so why not name it as my online diary!
3. Where in the UK do you come from?
Well, I was born in Huntingdon, then moved to Silverstone when I was 3 and now live part time in Canterbury during term and holidays in Silverstone. 
4. Favourite colour?
 My favourite colour would have to be orange!
5. Do you like Lana Del Ray?
I like some of her songs but not all of them :)
6. Hidden talents that you have?
um.... I don't really have any... guess winding my boyfriend up ;)
7. Celebrity crush?
ooh where to begin, Ewan Mcgregor, David Tennant, Ryan Gosling, Andrew Garfield, Gerald Butler, Skylar Astin... I could go on?
8. Favourite blog of all time?
I can't choose one! would have to be either Zoella, Anna Saccone or EssieButton
9. What made you want to join #BritishBloggerSelection?
I just really wanted to meet other British Bloggers out there and read some new awesome blogs!

There we go! Hope you all enjoyed that! :)
Keep Smiling!
