What I'm loving right now

I don't often share my favourite things on my blog so I thought it was about time I shared what I've been loving recently from haircare to candles!


     Hair 

palmer protien hair mask

Palmers coconut oil protein mask- I've been loving using this. I got about four uses out of the pack and its made my hair feel so so soft. My scalp is still quite dry but this definitely made my hair feel so lovely and nourished. of course it smells of coconut which is lovely, it's also free of sulpates and parabens which for me is always a bonus. 

    Nails 

models own nail varnish copper

Models Own nail varnish- I've never been someone who paints their nails all the time but I popped into the models own store recent and couldn't resist picking up their copper nail varnish. If you know me then you know I'm copper obsessed! Its such a lovely colour and I've really been enjoying wearing it recently. 

 Candles 

candles

DW home candles- I've seen a lot of people picking these up recently in TK Maxx and Homesense, there is such a massive range of scents. Lots of bloggers have been going crazy for the spicy, pumpkin scents but personal I'm not a fan. I love the smell of this Peony petals candle and for £2.99 you really cant complain! I also finally found the Aldi Jo Malone dupes and I'm supper impressed with them! they smell amazing!

Makeup 

liquid illuminator

Nyx liquid illuminator- As soon as the weather gets a bit colder my skin goes into melt down and goes so so dry! So I recently digged this out of my draw and I've been loving it! Don't get me wrong I still use powder highlighters but when my skin is really dry this sits so much better on my skin and leaves a lovely dewy glow to the face.

Skincare

simple hydro booster

When it comes to skincare I don't tend to try out that much with having eczema I generally use creams from the doctors. This month though I bought the Hydro booster from Simples new range. So far I really love it, I've been using it as primer to keep my skin from drying out so quickly. It has helped my makeup to sit better and not go patchy which for me is exactly what i need. 

What have you been loving recently?

Technic Makeup

Technic makeup is brand I've enjoyed using for quite a while now. I was recently sent some of their new products to try. I was sent 6 different items to try. 


technic pro blush makeup brush

Technic pro blusher brush- this is honest so so soft! I love it. I've been using this for powder at the moment as I've not been using blush all that much. Regardless its great at putting just the right amount of product on my face. Such a bargain to!


soft focus powder

Soft focus transparent loose powder- I have to say I haven't used this too much, not because its not good because I do actually love it but my skins been super dry at the moment. But this really did make my makeup last all day. It also didn't leave me looking like a ghost which is a bonus!

mega nudes eyeshadow
Mega Nudes Palette- This is currently on sale for £1.50! how amazing is that. This includes 12 nude shades which are all so pretty. They are quite pigmented for the price and blend really well. They also lasted all day which is perfect.


strobe cream
Strobe cream in sunkissed- I must say when I first looked at this I thought it was way too dark for my pale skin and was quite scared to try it out! Its sooo pigmented which is amazing for the price! I was which shocked at just how pigmented it was. It made my skin look so glowy but I definitely would buy a lighter shade.


technic mascara

Mega Lash Mascara- for starters I love the blue colour of this packaging its so pretty. This made my lashes look so full and long I really like the brush it comes with to as it doesn't put too much onto the lashes which I find others do. I would definitely recommend this, its so affordable to!

Juicy sticks- I really like the formulation of these. They are matte without drying out your lips, the colour lasts for quite a while before needing to be topped off. For £1 you really can't complain. Although I'm not a fan of the smell.

Have you tried Technic before?

The handbag you need in your life!

Livvy and Rose kindly contacted me recently and asked me would I be interested in reviewing something from their site. There site has a range of fashion accessories from jewellery to scarves all of which are quite reasonably priced.



After a good search on their website I picked this gorgeous miss lulu half and half bag in black.  Half of the bag is matte with the other half being patent which I quite like because it adds a something different from your standard bag. It has one big compartment and two small compartments at the front. Its quite a handy size as its not too big but big enough to fit my phone, headphones and purse in for when i'm out and about or going to work. It also has a detachable strap so it can be used by the handle if thats what you'd prefer to.
I also love the gold hardware on the bag it finishes the bag and makes it look more elagant.

The bag arrived within 2 days which I think is super fast and great for when you in need of a bag for a last minute night out!

I will also be featuring this on a outfit post soon to!

Exploring Liverpool by car


As most of you might know I've lived close to Liverpool all my life, its my nearest city and I honestly love it. There are so many amazing things to do and see.
Visiting Liverpool and its surrounding areas is definitely easier by car as there are so many other pretty places to see outside of the city centre.

PSD are located within the Liverpool area and are a great family run business offering amazing car and van hire making travelling around Liverpool so much easier. They have many different vans and cars available for all different types of budgets.
I thought I would share some of my favourite places to visit by car around Liverpool.

safari park, knowsley

Knowsley Safari Park- This is just round the corner from me. Its the perfect place for a day out especially with children. With over 700 wild animals to see, amusement rides, gift shop and more to explore.

Formby Point- This is definitely the best beach location in the area, along with its national trust squirrel reserve were you can feed the red squirrels it really is a beautiful location. There is even a picnic area if you fancy stopping for lunch. It has a massive car park and easy to get to by car.



Sefton Park- This is one of my favourite parks, its so beautiful. It perfect for walking your dog, talking blog photos, having a bite to eat in the cafe or visiting the stunning palm house.

Liverpool one shopping- Liverpool one is my all time favourite place to shop, it has a range of highstreet and designer brands as well as department stores and many places to eat. You are literally spoiled for choice. I could talk about the shops and restaurants all day there is that much choice! There is also a Liverpool one car park located centrally to the shops.

Museums- Liverpool has so many great museums to see! Including the museum of Liverpool, Maritime museum, walker art gallery, world museum and many more. Lots are located within Liverpool city centre with many being on the Albert Dock and some near Liverpool Lime Street. They are all great and definitely worth exploring.

There are so many more things to see such as Otterspool Prom, Cheshire oaks, The Albert Dock and more!
Liverpool is my favourite city and definitely one I would recommend visiting and I would recommend checking PSD out if your looking for a car to make travelling around the city a lot easier!

Have you visited Liverpool?

Change and life



This is quite a personal post for me but something I've wanted to write about for a while now. 
Change is something I've always hated since being little. It's always made me feel funny and send panic to my brain. Change on many occasions can be a positive thing but its still quite a scary process. 
Recently I found myself going through a lot of changes in my life and its made me reflect on how hard change can be to deal with but also exciting at the same time. So I thought I'd reflect on how I'm dealing and coping so I can look back and be proud of were I am now. 

university

University
I recently started my masters degree which is quite a big thing for me! I never thought I would be wanting to go back to university after 3 years but here I am. Its quite a scary process I was quite comfortable in my small little class of 20 people. I've now moved to a much bigger university and my class has 60 people in which is quite daunting since I'm so shy. But I'm excited for the change and the process of bettering myself for the future. Also digital marketing is exactly what I want to do so I'm excited to keep learning.

Job

I've also just started a past time job alongside my masters! I'm happy to be getting money FINALLY basically to spend on clothes because why not? It can be hard going into a new environment were everyone is already comfortable and know each other very well. Everyone so far seems nice though luckily.

Friends

I know I'm not alone in this but being so shy can bring its problems, making friends can be quite a hard task for me. I always seem to have the friends for a reason or season in my life rather than long term friendships. I'm hoping with all these changes in my life to try and be brave and not so shy as hard as that can be so I can put myself out there and make friends.

blog, blogger

Blogging


I don't know if anyone else gets like this but as soon as I'm busy I get really into my blog again. Its like an escape from uni work and stress. This month I'm determined to get back on track with it and stop being so lazy. I'm going to start posting regularly again, scheduling tweets and interacting with more bloggers. 

Loneliness

The older I get the more I feel like this is becoming more important to me. Other than family I don't have many people around me. Dont get me wrong I love my family more than anything. The blogging community is always so welcoming too. I actually hate being on my own. I dread any time I have to be by myself. Being a twin ( which is amazing if your reading twinny) always has meant I've not really had to be alone but as I'm getting older its something I have to get used to. So I'm trying to leave to enjoy being on my own and fill my time doing things I love like walking, reading and blogging.


eczema and allergies

Eczema and allergies

With the change in weather as we move into A/W my skin always like to go a little crazy. The cold weather is awful for my skin and my eczema has already started to flare up and my lips swelling like clown lips. As of next month I'm going to try and change my diet. I eat very little and don't give my skin and body what it needs so I'm going to do my best to change my eating habits in the hope of it helping my skin.

Driving lessons

This is something I've wanted to do for sooo long but I've always been so scared and made excuses to stop myself. But I'm finally going to start my lessons next month, I have my money saved for a car already so I just need to pass. It's a scary but really exciting prospect as I cant wait for the freedom it will bring.


Well done if you got to the end of my ramblings, I don't do personal posts often as I'm never quite sure anyone is interested but I quite enjoyed writing down all my thoughts.
