Magazine Make-up

I only tend to buy magazines when they are for reading on the airplane or by the pool on holiday. So with Thailand nearing, I made a couple purchases which I am very excited about. I bought three magazines in total; my choices being made by the make-up products that were included. InStyle – retails at £3.99 but this issue was reduced to £2.50. This magazine came with a full sized Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner in black. On BeautyBay, this costs £12. I’ve been…

Birchbox May 2016

For those of you unsure about Birchbox, it is a UK monthly subscription box service that costs £12.95 a month. Each month you receive 5 product samples plus occasional full price products from a huge range of beauty based brands. May’s box, ‘For The Dreamers…’, was my first Birchbox and I was very excited when it arrived. When I signed up, I had the extra luxury of adding a Cynthia Rowley Beauty black eyeliner, worth £11, to the order for free.…

June Wishlist

I am off to Thailand on Sunday and I am in saving mode for becoming a student once again so my spending will not be as extravagant this month. But if I do have some spare cash lying about and fancy treating myself this is what I would buy: Makeup Geek eyeshadows, £4.95 each in: Rapunzel – a light, peachy champagne with metallic finish. Pillow Talk – a soft lilac shade with a silver, shimmery finish. I already have quite a…

Boots Haul

I’m soon to be a skint student so I am in saving mode. This is not great for my spending addiction though, so I made the conscious decision to spend some of my Boots points. Here is what I purchased: Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer £7.99. I’ve heard great things about this under eye concealer and I’m yet to find a concealer that works for my stubborn dark circles, so here is hoping this will work a treat! Maybelline Colour Tattoo £4.99. Sticking…

May Favourites

How can it be the end of May already? 2016 is passing too quickly. Saying that though, there is nothing I enjoy more than reading what everyone’s favourites are for the month. I don’t have many favourites this month as I haven’t mixed up my routine too much but I do have a few beauty and hair products I have been loving, with some random products thrown in too. MAKE UP Makeup Revolution Affirmation Eyeshadow Palette £8. This little gem is…

OOTD: A Day in the Sun

Last week, Aberdeen actually had some great weather for a change so I had to make the most of it while I could. Prior, I had worked a draining nine hour shift at work and having started at 5am, all I wanted to do after work was sleep but I’m glad I pushed myself through the tiredness as I had a lovely day catching up with my close friend, Ryan. We decided to take a walk to a nearby park…

Motivation Monday

Last week my fitness and health was put on the side line. Due to my demanding work schedule, it was tough finding time to catch up on sleep, household chores and, unfortunately, finding time to head to the gym. This meant I had one session at the gym the whole week. We focused on legs and I’d say it was one of my best sessions yet. As usual, I started out with 10 minutes on the treadmill to warm up…
