Talkative Thursday: What The Fudge Is All This Alliteration About?

You guys have probably noticed that I have just discovered the power of alliteration so I thought I would take this time to tell you why and what this means.

So I have decided to make a schedule for when I post on my blog, I am planning on posting 3-4 times a week and in order to make it more organised I have planned what type of post will be going up on each of those days.These days are:
  • Trend Tuesday
    • Where I post about all things fashion related whether that be:
      • OOTD's
      •  Lookbooks 
      • Trends
  • Talkative Thursday
    • This is a day where I post fairly random things, these include:
      • Tags
      • Health, skin care, nail care and hair care
      • Collabs
      • Requests
      • Reviews
      • Updates
      • or just anything that I feel that doesn't quite fit in with any of the rest if the days
  • Stunning Saturday
    • Where I talk about all things beauty related including:
      • Makeup looks
      • Beauty tips and tricks
      • Hair styles
      • Hauls
  • Sit down Sunday (only be happening if I feel that enough people has seen Saturdays post)
    • Where I share with you my top 5 songs of the week, 
      • This gives you a chance to get to know my style of music and also introduce you to some artists that you might not have discovered yet.
The reason that I have decided to to use alliteration is that it makes it more fun and that way I can stick to it :)

Hope you guys are looking forward to these changes and I thought that it was a great way for you guys to get around my blog so if you have more of an interest in beauty you would visit my blog on Saturdays rather than having to wait for another one to randomly pop up on your feed. 

Tell me in the comments what you want to see on my blog, I read all the comments as they really help me out and keep me going :)

Trend Tuesday: Winters Coming (Casual Smart)

Yes the Alliterations continue with 'Trend Tuesday' where every Tuesday I post something fashion related whether that be a OOTD, Lookbook, talking about trends I have been loving ect.

I always hate it when someone says that the dress code is casual smart because I'm just like well how smart is casual smart and fluster myself into thinking that I may be over and under dressed. It is a very stressful time. Anyway this is my casual smart outfit perfect for the winter season, feel free to add tights or knee high socks with this look in order to cater for the weather. There is no point is looking nice if you are just going to be coughing and spluttering throughout the evening.

Dress: Tkmaxx (no brand)
Shoes: Manas
Bow: New Look

Stunning Saturday: How I wear mascara+ Rimmel Lash Accelerator Review

Hiya so as you can tell by the title I am starting to use alliteration haha no but seriously every Saturday I was thinking of doing a post on only beauty things therefore I named it Stunning Saturday, all of my post days have an alliterative name but I will go more in depth into what and why on Talkative Thursday. Now on to the actual post:

I have been getting questions from a lot of people asking me, 'Are your lashes real?', 'What mascara do you use?', 'How do you get your lashes to look so long?' well now those questions have been answered in this one video.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Review:

I do put a lot into my lashes, Its one of those things where I cannot leave the house if I don't like how I did my mascara (however I am able to leave the house without wearing mascara, I'm not that bad)

I have been using this mascara for just over a year now, I have gotten through 3 of them and that is saying something because I am one for changing up my make up every time I am finished with it so this has been one of my favourites.

This mascara makes my lashes look naturally long rather than false which is kind of what I have been loving for the past year, I used to go for the overly false lash look when I first got into mascara so I liked the change.

As it says in the name the Rimmel Lash Accelerator says that it promotes growth in your lashes. I can not say for CERTAIN it does because I wasn't expecting, 1 to use it for long enough to find out and 2 for it to actually work. HOWEVER without thinking about this mascara I had recently noticed my lashes were looking longer than before and I personally believe that this product had something to do with that. I wouldn't say if you were looking to grow out your lashes quickly or to an extreme length use this product however if you wanted your mascara to make your lashes look natural while still getting the length and thought that the growth of your actual lashes would be a perk if it happened then this is the product for you.

I hope both the review and the video on how to make your lashes look longer with mascara was helpful, if you have any further questions then just comment either on my Youtube video or down below.

MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer

I absolutely love MUA as a makeup brand they are unbelievably affordable but still keep there quality high on the vast majority of there products which is very impressive. The products that I regularly buy from MUA are their lip products,pencils, bronzer, blush and primer. I personally feel like those are there best line of products in terms of high quality especially their lipsticks.

Recently MUA have introduced their velvet lip lacquers and when I tell you that the quality of these are comparable with high end makeup brands I am not lying and these only cost a measly 3 pounds!!.. too good to be true you say well there are no lies on this blog I can assure you. These velvet lip laquers are perfectly matte without being overly drying on the lips and they last all day (I have eat and drank with this on and it did not budge). I have bought 5 of their 10 colours they have out at the moment as these are the ones that felt went best with my skin colour however I think there is one more that I will like purchase from their range at the moment.

Kooky, Dare, Atomic, Reckless, Criminal






I told you these were amazing and again for just 3 pounds from Superdrug and on their website! I hope they bring out more soon and hopefully a black would be one of them :) 

Thank you for reading I do hope this was useful, comment down what you would like me to show or even check out because I love discovering new products especially if they are affordable because times are hard.
