Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara // REVIEW

Follow my blog with Bloglovin 

It's that time again your favourite mascara has run out. The 3-month rule has ended, and my journey begins to test out a new mascara...



I first found this in Boots, and my eyes were drawn to this mascara immediately. I always go for the style of the mascara, and I love it when they give us a glimpse of what it looks like inside by showing us the wand next to the mascara.

When I bought this my hand dropped to the floor nearly with how heavy it was, okay, it's not that heavy but it is pretty bulky, this was due to the shaker system. You can shake this mascara to give it a fresher feel each time and it is free from clumps too.

Now, I struggle with mascaras a lot of the time. My eyelashes are a pain to please. I have had more mascaras that have not worked than ones that do, and once again I had the same problem. Typical.

This mascara did absolutely nothing. I honestly felt disappointed. Not to blow my own trumpet or anything but when I have a good mascara, my eyelashes look LIT. 

Joking ...       I'm not


The above picture doesn't look too bad though the eyelashes were sticking to each other and looked a mess. 

The formula is a very thin liquid, and it took a good few layers to make it look volumised, though shortly after my eyelashes didn't have any volume whatsoever. I love long eyelashes, and this lifts them by only 5%.  I wasn't too sure if it's from shaking it straight away or just because it's not that good. I tried on the first layer, and I just gave myself a stare in the mirror thinking 'not again, Jade', everything that I was doing was not working. After applying for a few more layers, I just had the realisation that this was not working. 

I need to remember to watch reviews before I buy. If you want to see me disappointed in another review please check out the Holika Holika blackhead strip. 

Have you tried this too? Was you pleased or a disappointed like me? 

Please share your thoughts x

What I've been watching this week...

Follow my blog with Bloglovin 

As you all know, I love a good TV show, and recently, I have been watching a few right corkers, and I wanted to share them with you all.




LOVE ISLAND
It's back, and it's better than ever okay, I mean it's no last year with Chris and Kem, but it's something to occupy my evenings every night at 9 pm. I loved watching this last year and was so excited for it to be back, not only am I entertained on my TV but I love checking out the memes on Twitter.

So far, I am liking Alex, Dani & Jack. As I said it's not as good as last year but I am glad it's back on.


JERSEY SHORE
Keeping up with the theme of reality it's TTTTTT-SHIRRRRRRRT TIMEEEEEEEE.
Harry and I were obsessed with this when it first started as it was our first TV show we binged together and I am so thrilled it's back on. The Situation is my fav, and it's way better than Geordie Shore too.


SAFE
I honestly have never been so into a show like I have been with Safe. Firstly, what a dime Michael C. Hall is, not only is he a great actor but he does a remarkable British accent (a little sexy too) it's astounding, and if you haven't seen it LOOK AWAY NOW...

But the twist at the ending, man, I was shocked to the core. I was not expecting that, and I thoroughly enjoyed each episode. It's hard to find a reeeaalllly good show and this is THE show you need to watch.

EVIL GENIUS
If I could sum up this documentary in one word, it would be WILD. I enjoyed watching this though I don't think I would watch it again. Just for the reason that it scared the bejeezus out of me. Not only do you see a guy be blown up 8 minutes into the show, but the woman is so crazy and scary that I couldn't sleep after watching it.

If you like Making a Murderer and those type of documentaries you'll enjoy this.




Have you been watching these too? or any other shows you've enjoyed at the moment??

Motivate Yourself to Work Out

Follow my blog with Bloglovin 


You plan to get up 6 am to go to the gym on a Monday morning. A fresh start to the week and you feel motivated AF.



Okay, so, you didn't go to the gym, but that's okay because you have many more Monday's to start your work out. To those who can do this though, YOU GO GLEN COCO. I am always motivated to do something, but when the time comes to it, I hate past me for making those plans...and now I have become even lazier.

But not anymore, I've decided I need to up my game and finally stop being so indolent constantly. Now, getting up Monday mornings to exercise is never, and I repeat NEVER going to happen. Do I look like I am going to leave my comfy bed to exercise? No.

With your social life taking over it can be hard to stay motivated, but I have managed to find a few ways to do it, and I wanted to share these with you all.


Set a 
     GOAL
Set realistic goals and each time you work out try and better yourself. You aren't going to be Mo Farah on day 1, but each time you exercise you're going to get better and one day, you could be just as good (well at least try and think that you could be).


Keep yourself
           HYDRATED
It may sound obvious, but this does help. If you're not hydrated, your body can't perform at it's highest level.

I recently have been trying vit stix as I have seen many people use these before a workout and they really keep me going. They are a vitamin drink which you have with water and they are a great way to keep you energised, hydrated and also stay healthy.



Change it 
              UP 
Doing the same exercise day in and day out can be tedious, who wants to exercise while they feel the time is dragging away.

Have a plan by writing different exercises down or by doing those '30 day challenges' on Pinterest. You can work on different areas to tone your body and will also have a variety. 

Track your
           PROGRESS
 Checking your progress can be a way for you to keep going and try harder for when you next work out.

Either checking on how far you have run or taking weekly pictures of yourself to see how much you've toned. I love comparing pictures when you can actually see results happening.


Create a good
            PLAYLIST
Music always gets me in the mood. If you have Spotify or Apple music, make a playlist or look for a workout one to put on in the background.


I hope I've motivated you as much as I've motivated myself. Do you have any other ways to motivate yourself?

A Tribute to Rik Mayall

It's been four years since the death of Rik Mayall, and it still doesn't seem real. 

My absolute favourite movie is Drop Dead Fred, I can't remember when I first watched this, but I have seen this around twenty times now and have cried every single time... even more so now. Not only that, Bottom is one of my favourite TV shows ever too.


I love to make people laugh and not take everything so seriously, and I like to think Rik is the main reason because of this. From a young age I have always adored Rik, I remember watching The Wind in the Willows at primary school and was so happy to hear Rik as one of the characters and I have been obsessed with him ever since. Very random but I love watching Family Guy as Stewie Griffin reminds me so much of him. 

Rik was different to many people, he was always himself, and that's what I loved about him. Not only did he play entertaining characters he was a joker in real life too. He had the talent of making people laugh and also being a fantastic actor. 

I miss you, Rik x

This or That Challenge

I was nominated by the lovely Lauren for the 'This and That Challenge'.

I honestly love doing these things I am obsessed with the ones on people's InstaStories so thought I would try this on here.

Shower in the morning or evening?

I prefer having a bath to a shower, and I have them in the evening.

City centre or close to nature?

I have lived in a city my whole life, and before living with my boyfriend, his parent's house is in the countryside to which I love being there as it's so peaceful and away from people and noise.

Bright colours or neutrals?

Neutrals for sure

Spring or autumn?

Autumn is the one for me, the start of cold weather and the excitement of Christmas and my birthing coming. The darker nights and hot chocolates are the best too.

Mint or cinnamon?

I am obsessed with mint at the moment. Mint ice cream with chocolate chips is soo delicious, and I also love the herb mint in lemonade... nommmmm

Planned or spontaneous?

I like to know what I am doing, where I am going and what I will be eating (of course). Spontaneous trips are nice, but there's nothing better when a plan comes together.

A movie at home or at the cinema?

At home is so much better and relaxing plus you can go to the shops and get all the food you want and not be having to spend a fortune.

Espresso or latte?

Neither! I cannot stand coffee or even tea.

Hugs or kisses?

Depends what mood I'm in but a hug is much more relaxing.

Spicy or mild food?

I'm getting better at spicy food but mild food any day.

Leather or lace?

I love leather trousers and have wanted them in forever, but I have always loved those cute lace tops that Khloe Kardashian wears... I say both.

Overdressed or underdressed?

Overdressed.

Adventure or comfort?

Adventure if fun, but I am more of a comfort person as I am quite lazy. #noshame

Tv series or movie?

A TV series is where it's at as you can be so invested in a show and it can be a rollercoaster as you can relate to the characters and it's emotional when the show ends.

And by that, I am talking how I felt when watching Safe... what a show!!

Rock or country music?

Rock for sure.

Red or white wine?

Neither. Not a huge drinker but I do love Malibu with coke.

Working alone or in a team?

Both and if any employers wanting to hire me... I am highly experienced in both too ;)

Swimming or sunbathing?

Hmm, probably swimming though I am not a great swimmer.

Fast food or a sit-down restaurant?

I am a food lover, but I choose restaurants any day as it's so exciting looking at what the menu has to offer.

Matched or mismatches socks?

Couldn't care less.

Dancing or singing?

Singing, I cannot dance to save my life... though I can't probably sing to save my life too, I like to think I can.

Phone or the internet?

Phone.


Hope you enjoyed this post and I will tag those on Twitter.
