So a little while ago I held a competition to win a STUNNING My Jolie Candle including a hidden surprise piece of jewellery…

orange-blossom-scented-jewellery-candles.jpg

I asked the question:

“IF YOU COULD INVENT THE MOST PERFECT CANDLE, WHAT SCENT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?”

There were quite a few entries and it was so tough to pick one.. however…

THE WINNER IS….

“I would make it smell of cigarettes and rum ( in a nice way if course) to remind my mum off her dad because he sadly passed away.”

BY ALANNA from IMAGALAXYGIRL

Congratulations and I hope you enjoy the beautiful candle as much as I do.

Green Goddess Tutorial

Easter Bunny

Good Afternoon guys!

It’s Easter weekend and I’m sat with slippers on, hot chocolate in one hand and Cadburys creme egg in the other.

Too much chocolate? 

Never!

I wanted to create a look that was inspired by Spring, but more so by nature. Everything comes alive in the Springtime, so im going ‘back to the roots’ (pardon the pun) with a beautiful green smokey eye.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

So im starting off with this pretty shimmery bronze base shade from my Makeup Revolution palette and applying it all across my lid.

SAM_0984.JPG

I’m using my fluffy blending brush which is perfect sweeping the colours and blending it flawlessly into my skin.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This little pocket palette is from Autograph by Marks and Spencers, aren’t these two colours so lovely together, very organic looking and fresh. The colours are highly pigmented and look beautiful.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I applied it using the same brush to my crease and outer corner. As I have green eyes, the colours just bounce off each other and emphasise my peepers.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Next up is this warmer green tone that I am going to apply over the top of that darker shade. This is going to brighten everything up and really turn me into a green goddess….

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Or the hulk…

SAM_0988.JPG

Im just applying that same shade to my lower lash line with a pencil brush and placed a highlighting white shade in my inner corner. This is going to brighten and awaken my eyes making them appear whiter and brighter.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Using my most favourite liquid eyeliner EVER.. the Loreal Super liner in black, im doing a simple and elegant wing emphasising on the outer corner to add drama.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Can we just take a moment to appreciate these lashes.

Heaven.

They’re by the brand Eylure and are possibly some of the prettiest shaped lashes I have ever used. I love how natural and feminine they look and those green lashes hidden in there are incredible. Perfect for this look.

SAM_0992.JPG

Last step is mascara. Im using, again a favourite, the Maybelline Sensational mascara to really blend my real lashes in and to add some dimension to my bottom ones.

The Finished Results

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Im so happy with how this look turned out. I thought it may be a little overpowering but it turned out quite subtle and smokey. For me, the lashes really bring the whole look together giving it such a girly and feminine feel whilst still looking very earthy and natural.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I would love to see what you lovelies think of this look and if you would like to see any more specific colour themes too!

Just let me know in the comments below!

I hope you ALL have a beautiful Easter!

February Instagram Diary + How I edit my photographs.

Uncategorized

img_1053-2

Its that that time again for you guys to have a catch up with my Instagram posts from the last month or so..

I love creating (and reading) these posts as they are so relaxed and I can just chat about all the general goings on in my life…

And you guys can look at some pretty pictures..

EASY EDITS

If you guys are interested, I usually edit my pictures using an app called “Line Camera“. Its really easy to do and I dont like to spend to long editing a quick pic… I start by either rotating, flipping or cropping my images then move on to the fun stuff. I start by playing with the brightness and saturation and get it just how I like it.

I also love a good filter…

 I love the filter ‘Fairytale as it makes all of my colours so pretty and enhanced.

Check out the results below!

Before & After

12699254_10154592063719179_974853080_o

Easy right..

Ready to see my posts….

12696287_10154592035759179_848439759_n

I bought this in TK Maxx, it was only £3 but I thought it was so nice to write down blog ideas and inspirations. I love the colours and I always have it on my bedside table.

12714282_10154592035734179_1070748505_n

Similarly to above. This is a birds eye view of my bedside table. I love the colour combo of pink and blue! I keep my current books, a candle, flowers, a photo of me and my girls and this gorgeous ‘C’ plate for jewellery.

702806_10154592035774179_2000526467_n

You’ve seen this already in my OOTD post but I couldnt resist. This coat is so gorgeous and super warm and colourful.

12714245_10154592035799179_1426292148_n

I love these babies. I recently got these Karl Lagerfeld polarised sunglasses and I love them. They have that slight aviator look which is always in style. I’m still waiting for a sunny day to wear them!

12735676_10154592035934179_741042710_n

Oh this lipstick. I got this from Boots and I fell in love. I have worn it every day since I bought it. Its a beautiful light dusky pink shade that seriously goes with everything. Its by Loreal Paris, I think it was £6.99 and is called Juliannes Nude.

Ps Who likes my nails? I spent ages with sellotape making it perfect.

12746066_10154592035834179_1232998193_n

Its always Tea Time in my house. And what is tea without biscuits. I thought they were so dainty and pretty. I scoffed them all in about 10 seconds…

12325424_10154592029269179_866791724_n

Guess where I was…

Ofcourse Lush. I saw these on display and had to snap a picture. I thought the colours were incredible. If pictures could smell… the scent was heavenly.

12736197_10154592029299179_54232989_n

On the theme of Lush. This was the result after my Intergalactic bath bomb. It reminds me of galaxies and space. It also had sparkles in the water… I felt like a mystical mermaid.

12721833_10154592029454179_430964935_n

Who doesnt love a flatlay. My Goddess of Love Highlighter by Makeup Revolution is one of my fave pieces of make-up. In the spirit of Valentines day, I posted this little beauty. If you haven’t tried this, you need to!

Check it out here.

12735826_10154592029559179_1900853288_n

I had these beautiful two toned roses from my boyfriend. There were 20 roses and I thought they matched my nails perfectly! My polish is by Kiko Milano!

12696100_10154592029529179_32973254_n

I went on a windy and rainy walk with my dog. I love wearing wellies so I was splashing in puddles and having a great time. I had to wrap up warm though because it was freezing! Walking is one of my most favourite things to do, I could seriously walk for hours.

12696291_10154592029339179_380524489_n

Another shot from my beautiful bouquet. The colours just make me happy and they smell divine.

12659761_10154592029384179_485342526_n

EEEEEEK! These pancakes were so good. I added sprinkles to the mix and chocolate syrup. They were so easy to make and the perfect way to start off my Valentines day.

12737090_10154592029659179_546201693_o

This is my girl Honey. She is a 18 month old Lurcher who loves the camera. Her eyes are stunning, it looks like she has the perfect winged eyeliner constantly…

Primark & Lush Haul. Feb 16.

Uncategorized

Oh guys…

I think I’m addicted to Primark….

Oh well.

So today I went for a bit of retail therapy in Primark and Lush.

I’m really getting in the mood for Spring and wanted to add some colour to my wardrobe and room.

In Cardiff, we have a MASSIVE Primark that is spread over about four or five floors which means there was ALOT of exploring to be done. I think I spent just over an hour admiring the new lines in and cant wait to show you what I bought…

So I have created a Haul video for you guys so I can chat with you and a blog post too..

Let’s get started…

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Lavender Bag – £1.00

I could not resist getting this adorable little room accessory. I think its so cute for Spring and brightens the place up. It was actually reduced to clear and there were so many of them – I just had to get one.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Metallic Tattoos – £1.50

Brings back childhood memories.. I love transfer tattoos and thought these would be great for photos and festival season. I particularly like the rose gold ones.. very boho.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Mixed rings – £2.50

I’m a big lover of rings. I wear one everyday. However I have never bought a midi ring as i always thought they would fall off. These however are perfect and will go with absolutely every outfit.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Sunglasses – £2.00

Check out these badboys. They are beautiful. They have a very classic look to them and I love the beige/ nude colour. They are super comfy and will make any outfit look like 1 million dollars.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Sunglasses – £3.00

These are the same style as above but have a blue reflective tint to the lenses. I never usually go for leopard print but I wanted to try something a bit more edgy. They have electric blue sides which add a great pop of colour – Perfect for Spring.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fluffy Pillow -£2.00

Again, SALE item. Yay! What a bargain. Its super soft and a great addition to join the others on my bed.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Pink Pillow – £2.00

And again, another SALE item. I’m trying to add more colour to my room so I thought this would be a good start. Hoorary for Sales!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Sleeveless Cardigan – £14.00

So i’ve seen alot of people wearing these and im always a little bit jealous if im honest with you. Today was the day that I bought one! Its super thick and warm, paired with a simple top, jeans and boots, it will look really classic and elegant. I dont think this will EVER go out of fashion.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Snood – £3.00

I love a good snood. This one came in so many different colour but again I went for something that is going to go with everything. Its quite a thin material but there is a lot of it which makes it nice and warm. Plus it can be worn so many different ways.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Daisy T-Shirt – £5.00

Doesn’t this just scream SPRING. The daisy print just attracted me and it is so cute. I love a simple t-shirt so this is going to be great with jeans or shorts (if we ever have warm enough weather). They also had loads of other prints like spots and even one with elephants..

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Plain Red T – £2.80

Easy Peasy. Plain and Simple. This colour is a warm red brick and is a simple V neck T shirt. I already have a ton of these so I just wanted to add to my colour collection!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Underwear – £3.00

I dont usually go showing off my underwear across the internet but just look at these. I have NEVER seen underwear so bright in all my life. I just had to get them, they just made me laugh and smile! This is a glorious pack of 3. Im sure it will brighten the start to my day! Haha .

 

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Underwear – £2.50

On the same theme, I may as well show you the rest of my underwear collection… are these pretty pastels. Not much else to say really except I LOVE them!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Intergalactic – £3.95

I’ve seen a lot of youtubers and bloggers with this bath bomb. I had a demo in store and it created the most beautiful colours and bubbles. It smells really fresh and I know I will be left feeling super clean and relaxed after this one. I’m sure it will also create great instagram photos!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Ickle Robot – £1.95

I picked this up for my boyfriend for him to use after a hard day of work. It is so cute, I dont really want to submerge him…. The scent is really gentle like lavender and will definitely help relax.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

ButterBall – £2.65

This is what I imagine that newborn baby smell to be like. Its so soft and gentle and is just heavenly. Its very powdery so I can tell it is going to make my bath luxurious and creamy.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

You’ve been mangoed – £2.00

This looks a lot like an avocado to me but the scent is INCREDIBLE! It is so citrusy and zingy. Its a bath oil so you just run it under water and your bath becomes gorgeous and great for hydrating the skin leaving it smooth and silky.

Thats a lot of purchases.

Phew.

I really hope you guys have enjoyed this post. I loved creating it and sharing some of my favourites from February so far.

I cannot wait for Spring Colours. I recently went shopping and stumbled upon a new makeup brand called Kiko Milano. Oh my goodness it is amazing. The quality of their products is beautiful and it is so affordable! I chose these pretty pink shades that I think will gorgeous for Spring 2016!

Nail Polishes: Roughly £2.50 each

12557684_10154342027424179_159449908_o

Lights, Camera, Action!

I thought I was being very clever! So this was taken whilst filming my Ombre Lip Tutorial. Who loves my duck egg blue camera? If you’re interested its the Samsung NX mini!

Blondie.

For some reason, my hair looks super blonde in this photo. I think it’s because my roots are coming through! This was taken after my Ombre lips tutorial.

I am in love with berry shades!

12512013_10154342026854179_181231077_n

Shopping Shopping Shopping.

Probably.

Again, this was promoting my Primark and More Haul + Try On Video!

Date Night.

I love date nights with my boyfriend. We have been together for 7 years and I still get butterflies when we go on dates.

We went to our local coffee house called The Ocho Lounge where they do the best hot chocolates by candlelight.

I always eat all the marshmallows off the top first.

P.S My sports top is from Primark!

Fairylight reading.

I love reading by fairylights. It is so soothing and relaxing, especially when Im really involved in the stories. Im currently reading Without a Trace by Lesley Pearce.

I highly recommend it. I got it for christmas off my sister and I cannot put it down.

Good evening guys!

The perfect winter’s evening.

So I have been wanting do this post for a while.

I have been gathering some of my favourite Blush and Highlight colours from Makeup Revolution to show you beauts. If you haven’t heard of Makeup Revolution, then you 100% need to check them out! I think it has to be my favourite brand. It is such good quality and the products are so affordable.

Check them out here!

So lets begin...

12395571_10154270030959179_1425650627_n

I am ABSOLUTELY in love with this Ultra Blush and Contour palette. Mine is in the shade Sugar and Spice. It has some super bright shades mixed with some beautiful mattes and highlights. I have also got some gorgeous individual highlight and blush shades to show you!

Heaven!

12367064_10154270054709179_267230524_n

Now look at these Heavenly shades.

As you can see, they range from pinks to a warm gold highlight. This is just one swatch, and the pigmentation is unbelievable.

They are so shimmery and look flawless on cheek and brow bones or ANYWHERE!

I particularly like the shade on the left, it has pink undertones and makes me feel like a fairy….

12381082_10154270055229179_2035558955_o

The perfect winged eyeliner?

I know how difficult it can be to get your eyeliner perfect. Trust me, rushing for school and work can cause havoc with your makeup…

makeup-crying-e1299262749310-300x211

Am I right?!

So Ive decided to show you guys how I do my Winged Eyeliner.

I begin with a good base and start with a gel liner to get the basic outline. After that, I fill everything in with a liquid liner to get the a crisp and pigmented look.

I then clean everything up with a small flat brush and concealer (Try it!)

You ready lovelies?
