Too Faced Makeup || Review

Back in June during my birthday, I was lucky enough to get these two must have and beautiful items from Too Faced. On my bucket list I was super excited and just had to try them out. Several months later I have finally got round to sharing my view on these products. So let's get down to business.

When it was released this foundation was a cult classic. Still used all over the beauty circuit, I finally was able to pick up my very own foundation. The shade range is not huge for this product but they do have a nice selection. However for an oil free foundation it really oxidised on my skin and seemed to get darker, not by much but enough to notice. I have tried to mix in lighter foundation shades though it still oxidises. I think if I went another of shades lighter the colour would be perfect for me. Though, for the price you pay it certainly is an amazing product, with its beautiful packaging and pump design it is definitely a must have. Being oil free it is targeted at oily skin types and acne prone skin, however if you do have issues with oxidisation I would recommend getting a lighter shade. Overall the product is semi matte and lasts a long time on the skin.



Firstly and definitely the best thing about this palette is the smell, juicy peaches the moment you open the palette. The packaging is super cute too, with its gradient peach colour with peach shades raised into the tin. It is super versatile too, with a wide range of shades with both mattes and shimmers. Unlike the Chocolate Bar Palette there are two additional shades instead of two longer pans. This just adds to the wow that this palette has. Not only this but the shadows are super creamy and some hold really bold pigment which blend out beautifully. The only thing that would have made this palette even more amazing is if they threw in a double ended brush like the naked palettes. If you only get one palette form Too Faced make it this one, as you and everyone around you will be smelling peaches all day long.

MAC Makeup || Review

A long time coming, but here it is my mini Mac haul. These products were mainly picked up at IMATS back in May, so I did pick them up at a slightly discounted price, though everything is available on line or in store.

I love love love pigments and I couldn't help myself but pick up two, Copper and Platinum. These pigments are beautiful, metallic and highly pigmented. The platinum is in a travel size, which is great as it's small and you can travel with it much easier. Not only that you only need a tiny amount of pigment so it will last a long time. These pigments are perfect for and easy effortless look on the body, added with fix plus increases the staying power and pigmentation, with the essential oils makes a great highlight and with the mixing medium for a strong hold liner. Along with the pigments I picked up 3D Lavender, a holographic lilac glitter. The glitter is medium chunky but beautiful and with a blue undertone from the lilac the perfect holographic shade. Best used with a glitter glue or the mixing medium.


This is a small tube of gel which can be mixed with pigments and glitters to form a liner solution which when dry has a strong hold to the skin. This is a great product if you are a lover of pigments, though it is a little tricky to use with the glitters.



Yes Yes Yes Mama! This biatch is lit. A dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Hollywood, it is gorgeous. Highly pigmented with a gold glow, perfect for all skin tones, though go lightly as it can come off very strong. It has a creamy texture and blends out wonderfully with fingers and a brush. it really gives you that effortless glow that we all love. I recommend you pick yourself one, and with many shades to choose from it is no wonder why they are so popular.




Repurchases
Yep I had to pick up a couple of must have items, the first is the Brow Pencil as it is the prefect size and shade for my brows. It makes brows super easy and quick (£14.50). The final purchase is Studio Fix Powder. I needed a slightly darker shade then the one I own as that one is a little too pale. This powder is perfect as it is a high coverage powder foundation, perfect for added coverage or an allover base (£23.50). With loads of shades you will find the perfect fit for you.

Dating and Relationships

8 years, wow. 8 years I have been with my partner and honestly we have been through a lot of ups and downs. And after 8 years you forget just how your life was before you started dating and developing your relationship. For us it was not an old fashion meet in a bar and start talking, or even meet through friends. Nope, we met through Facebook. Yep that's right, online!

Though you can still hit it off with someone person to person, it is becoming more and more popular to generate a relationship online. Back when I did it, using dating sites or even meeting people online was almost taboo, especially when your younger. But as the years have gone by we have become more and more open to the idea of online dating. I know friends and family who have used dating sites and some have really hit it off. 

But where do you start your hunt for love?? You can find a few top best dating sites here. Though don't be put off on the though of online dating as there are more site that will appeal more towards your likes and needs then you think. For those of you single divorcees, there are multiple sites out there such as date divorced singles. This site can be prefect for you, as they know exactly what you have been through and what you are really looking for, as well as knowing that you may have commitments such as children which may interfere with times you can meet. This is not to say that everyone on the site has children but, they will be more accommodating.

There is no age limit to dating online either, and it can be a great place to meet like minded people such as yourself, who may just want a companion. For those of you on the senior dating scene, there are plenty of people and sites looking for the same thing as you. You may even find a kindred spirit in the things you like or even believe, this brings me on to the religious dating scene. For those of you who follow a faith, there are sites out there for you. It can be a confusing world to find your perfect match, don't give up there are sites out there to find love, such as Christchurch Dating.

Some larger, mainstream sites can be a little tricky to find love, especially if you live on an island, distance can be an issue. But, don't fret there are ways around this. Most islands do have their own dating sites too, such as this dating agency Isle of Man. This way you don't need to worry about booking a ferry or a flight just for a first date. And like most dating sites they may even hold events such as dancing classes or even pub nights, where you can meet with like minded singles without having to travel very far.

Now what if you just want some fun, partying, dinner out, something that doesn't require a label. More dating then relationship. This subject is a little taboo still, but it is still a form of dating, though you don't necessarily have to continuously date the same person. This is more adult dating, and yes it can involve mainly sex than dinner. But for some, this form of dating can lead to a more progressive relationship, or it can become a progression of ones self, to gain the confidence needed to move on and find a relationship. There are also those too busy or even want to explore something different that can return to the site and discover more. But still go on in their day to day life with out the worry of ties.

We are all human and find comfort in companionship. It is this companionship which can be in various forms from NSA to full blown relationship. There is no shame looking for love online, some of the best relationships have come from online starts. Just be you, be safe and...

Happy Hunting

University Bound? Here's How to Get Ready


Now is the season when many new students will be getting ready to start university for the first time. A huge milestone in your life, there is a lot to get prepared before you make the big move. Though there is a lot to think about, in this post, we will talk about five of the top things that can help make your transition much smoother. Taking these steps can help to ease your nerves and make you feel more confident about the journey you have in front of you.

Chat with Classmates on Social Media
One of the most daunting aspects of starting at university is making new friends. After all, it is likely that you have gone through your whole life with the same set of friends and you may not have made any new ones for a long time. Social media has helped to make things so much easier, as you can start chatting with your classmates before everything gets started. This way, you already have some connections ready and waiting for you before you arrive which will help to put your mind at ease.

Organise the Bigger Details First


When it comes to organising yourself for university, you should make sure that the bigger details are sorted first before moving onto the smaller ones. So, your accommodation and finances are probably the biggest issues that you will want to prioritise. After that, you can start thinking about your equipment, furniture, reading material etc. Make a checklist and start going through all the items one by one.

Learn to Cook
If you haven’t yet learned how to cook, now is a good time to learn how to prepare one or two dishes to get you started. It doesn’t have to be anything too fancy (you are a student after all) but learning the basics in the kitchen will give you a head start. And if there are any other aspects of housework that you have never picked up before such as how to use a washing machine, now is the time to pick up these skills as well.

Go Out Shopping
There are all kinds of things that you may need as a new student. First of all, there will be the things that you need for your course like books, stationery, electronics and other equipment. Then, there are the items for your room like furniture and decoration - check out these gift ideas for students going to university. And you may also want to invest in some new clothing to launch your university career with a new sense of style!

Though there is plenty of other stuff to think about, these four will give you a good starting point of how to get yourself organised. Ultimately, starting university is something that you want to throw yourself into headfirst, but these few ideas will help you make this big move a little easier.
