My Autumnal Makeup Look

When it comes to getting ready, it's one of my favourite things to do. Though I rarely go out these days, I put makeup on for fun most times (hope I'm not the only one! ha). As it's autumn, I am obsessed with orange and dark reds for eyeshadow, and I wanted to talk through what makeup bits I currently use and also loving at the moment. 

For foundation, I have been using different ones each time and trying to see what my favourite is. So far, my all time favourite is Pro Longerwear Foundation by MAC but for this look, I used Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, and I highly recommend this foundation. It gives an evenly look and stays on my skin throughout the day.  

I have a lot of love for eyeshadow. Even when I have days where I cannot be bothered to put much makeup on, I still end up with a bold eyeshadow and looking like a contestant on Ru Paul and have zero regrets. On my recent purchase, I bought an eyeshadow palette (Beauty Glazed Sunset Dusk) from Amazon for £5.88, and it's probably the best makeup purchase that I have ever bought. For something so cheap, it's phenomenal. The palette has 15 vibrant and glittery shadows, the pigment is incredible, and I cannot fault this one bit.

I use Maybelline Lash Sensational for Mascara, I try changing my mascaras, but it never works and ends up with me going back to the Lash Sensational. I am tempted to buy the Benefit mascara as I have heard a lot of good things about that.

Eyebrows are very important to me as I have a scar and can get paranoid when the makeup doesn't hide this. I tend to use Brow Zings by Benefit but I am trying to save up, so it's high street makeup for me for the meantime. I am currently using Revolution Eyebrow Pomade to which I would give it a 6 out of 10. It's okay, but it takes so long to get my brows right.

For concealer, it's the one and the only Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. You cannot go wrong with this, it's cheap (though I am sure it's getting higher in price every time I buy it ) and the best concealer I have ever used. 

I also use this MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Highlighter, the is an absolute dream, I use this for my nose and everywhere else as it's sooo pretty and finally for a finished look, I use the Maybelline Superstar Setting Spray.

I rarely wear lipstick as I have no lips #sadtimes

I hope you enjoyed this post and do let me know if you use these too or know any other makeup products that are good and cheap too!!

COMPETITION TIME : Win This TapouT Bundle

With winter ahead I have postponed going outside to exercise and have started to workout in my living room due to not being able to afford the gym after travelling around America and buying a new house. I have to admit that I have been slacking a lot and with now being 20 miles away from my job, I do find it very hard to find the time, and not only that it can be harder knowing what exercises you can do in your own home.

I have the perfect giveaway for you from TapouT. They are fantastic for the gym or even doing this right in your living room. Firstly, I have been using these for a week and not only grateful for these, but I genuinely don't know how I would cope without these now.

Unfortunately, I am not body confident and want my arms to be toned. I have been using Harry's dumbbells for some time now, and my hands have always been sore along making it unbearable to use after a few goes.  The TapouT Weightlifting Fitness Gym Gloves are phenomenal. They have adjustable straps which give a perfect fit along with an excellent grip. The material of the gloves give added comfort and durability, and I am no longer struggling with the friction of the dumbbell.

I have always wanted a resistance band as I do squats pretty much every day and I can get an achy back after a while of doing these. The material is very tough which at first, I did struggle but only because my legs are very weak. The TapouT Hip Circle Resistance Glute Band is perfect for squats and side steps, I have also been trying out different ways to use these, and it has become a routine for me which I am loving and would thoroughly recommend. 

You can enter below for a chance to win these, and this will end November 23rd. GOOD LUCK!!

Win this TapouT bundle! #4

Thank You, Big Brother

I wanted to do a short post about Big Brother as not only is it the final tonight, it's the last one ever. I know, we have had this before, back in 2010, Big Brother ended on Channel 4 to which luckily it was taken over by Channel 5. 

Big Brother has been a part of my life, I remember my sister watching some show with a bunch of people sat in a room talking to each other and then the next day Nasty Nick was all over the news for being kicked out for writing down the housemates names and showing them to other housemates in attempt to influence their voting intentions. 

Shortly after, Big Brother 2 started, and from this day, this is still my favourite one ever. It had the one and only, Brian Dowling along with other fantastic housemates such as the 'I don't like blinking' from Helen Adams. This series was so raw and fresh to see everyday people locked in a house, being themselves, and trying to win some money. It was a simple show yet so addicting. I was very young watching this, being only 8-year-old but there was something about that was so fascinating, and I was instantly hooked.

When Channel 5 decided to end Big Brother earlier this year, I wasn't too shocked. This show has and always will be my favourite even though the past series or so has not been exactly amazing. We saw 'everyday people' to people who were fame-obsessed and there was no originality. I don't want to see people who have been on 'Ex on the Beach' or some other reality show.

Unfortunately, I feel out of love watching Big Brother however they surprisingly made this years probably one of the best in a long with keeping it original, having people who have 'normal' jobs and also having fantastic tasks like they used to do. 

I have a feeling it could come back, but please if it does, don't ruin it because it's so easy to do that. Thank you, BB for your constant entertainment.

8 Reasons Why Staying in is Better Than Going Out

It's less than two months before Christmas, the clocks have gone back, and it's time to freeze our tits off. Not going to lie, I love winter and the coldness, it's cosy and my birthday is coming up too...though I am going to be 25. WHY GOD WHY?! Anyway, I wanted to give my reasons on why staying inside your own home is way better than going out on the lash. What is not to love about ordering a takeaway and watching a chick flick and crying your eyes out??

No can judge what you're wearing. You can wear those crazy cat pyjamas (yes, I have those) or your boyfriend's t-shirt with nothing else on or even nothing at all ... No-one will know a thing. 

You save money. Apart from spending money on the takeaways, chocolates and a little alcohol but still it's way cheaper than paying to get inside the club, the number of drinks you buy and that taxi. More money you save means the more sides you can get in the takeaway.

You'll wake up fresher than ever. There is nothing worse than waking up with a terrible headache, feeling like you're going to puke your guts out and your mouth drier than the safari desert. You'll be waking up feeling fresh and ready to the start the day.

You won't get any creeps near you. You're in your house where you are much safer and won't get any creepy people talking to you whether that's a guy chatting you up or bitchy girls giving you the evils. You're freeeeeee.

Pamper nights are the one. A hot bubble bath is the best thing in the world especially in the winter along with having candles and a face mask on.  Not only will be relaxed AF but you'll also be looking and feeling brand new.

Netflix and chill. Honestly the name in the title says it all and no, I don't mean the sexual one. Not always, anyway.

Trash TV. Again, nobody can judge you for what you want to watch, sometimes when I need a cry I watch a cheesy romantic film or binge-watch the real housewives because sometimes that is all you need in life, right?

Invite your favourite people over. You can talk without shouting. You can be with the ones you need a good gossip with the most and watch your favourite movies.

Are you a hermit or love to get mortal??
