Technology… Why?

Hello everyone,

This is an apology post on behalf of technology.  Why?  Because it has failed me, and therefore has failed all of you.  Knowing I was going to be extremely busy for a couple of weeks, I did a huge blog purge and set them to upload by themselves every day at 9am.  Not only did none of them do so, but they have all disappeared from my posts!

I don’t know why or how this happened, but I’m very very sorry.  There were so many good haul posts and reviews in there as well!  Oh dear, not good.  So, I’m going to try my best to get a few blogs up and running in the next couple of days but literally no promises because I’m running around like a headless chicken at the moment.  I was just on Instagram then realised I hadn’t had any WordPress Notifications from the app all week about likes/comments/followers on my post or entries into the giveaway post I thought had gone up, but then there was just nothing and I thought ‘Jesus, I didn’t realise all these blogs were that awful’, then I realised what had happened.

I’m so annoyed and upset but hopefully I’ll be able to redo them all and get them to you ASAP!

Much love,

Rosie

‘When the going gets tough, the tough get going’

Liebster Award!

Hello!

So today I’m veering off my usual ‘Tipsy Tuesday’, because the lovely Becky at BeckInABlog nominated me for the Liebster Award!!  Thank you very much Becky, it means a lot to have been nomianated.  I can’t believe that I started this blog less than three months ago, and already I’m getting prepared to host my 100 Followers Celebration Giveaway.  How has that even happened? If you haven’t already, you should go and check out her blog!  Like me, she’s a fellow actress with a passion for all things beauty, only she’s graduated from Drama School and I’m still waiting to do my auditions to go…

award

For any of you reading this who aren’t familiar with this particular award, the rules are this:

1. You must link back to the person who nominated you (done already, look how efficient this all is…)

2. Answer 11 questions set by the person who nominated you

3. Nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers and come up with 11 questions for them to answer

4. Let them know about their nomination!

So… Becky gave me these 11 questions and I’m going to go ahead and do my best at answering them :)

1- What is one beauty product you couldn’t live without?
2- What are your favourite lazy day activities?

I like to watch rubbish on TV, do a bit of lazy cooking (like a stir fry), watch YouTube videos, read blogs, online window shop, have a LUSH bath…

3- The outdoors or indoors?

Even though I spend a lot of my time being forced indoors because of working, I love the outdoors.  I love camping, hiking, walking the dogs, just being outside.  It’s so nice and just makes me feel a bit more like a human and less like a weird little work drone.

4- Pool or the ocean?

Pool.  I love the Ocean, but the salt water is just a no no for me.  I wear contacts and whilst I can get away with wearing them in a pool and keeping my head above water in a pool, in the ocean, if a tiny bit of water got in my eye I can’t even begin to imagine the pain and swelling.  Ewwwwww.  Pools just feel cleaner and more refreshing.


5- City or countryside?

This one is so difficult.  I love city life.  Just love it.  I prefer the atmosphere of cities and the way in which they function, it suits my frame of mind.  However, I grew up in the countryside and I love the outdoors, so it’d be really hard to choose.  I think I’d have to say city, but spending lots of time in secret undiscovered areas of the parks and going on holidays to the Lake District.  Is that answer cheating?  Oh well…


6- Favourite travel destination?

Ahhh!  Again, so so diffcult!  I have three… The first is Phuket, a small Island just off Thailand.  We’ve been going to the same resort every few years since I was probably about two years old and it’s so amazing.  You can go on speedboat tours, ride Elephants, get amazing massages on the beach.  Also, because we know the resort so well, it’s so easy for us kids to know our way around the resort and the Island and just go off and do our own thing.  The next one is New York City – the total opposite.  Like I said before, I get on with city life and New York is just a summary of everything I love.  I really want to go back and even live there for a few months if I could, I feel there is just so much to do and see there that I need to discover!  The final is… Orlando, Florida.  Yes, I love Disney.  Actually, that’s the biggest understatement of the century.  We’ve been going there for literally years.  I love all the theme parks, Magic Kingdom is always going to be the best because of how overhwelmingly exciting and cool and amazing it is, but Universal Studios is just incredible – the rides are fantastic and so are all the little shops and bits and bobs around the place.  Sea World is also super cool.  Plus, the Malls are really good.


7- One of your goals for the next 5 years?

To have graduated from Drama School, with a First in Acting.


8- What is one thing you are really looking forward to?

My 18th Birthday right now!  My Auntie is coming over from America for it, all my friends are getting together, it’s just going to be really nice.  I’ve been through a really hard struggle with my physical and mental health during my teenage years and I’m finally really happy and in a good place, and it’ll be really nice to celebrate that, marking the end of one chapter and the beginning of the next one.  I’m also really looking forward to starting my Drama School auditions!


9- One famous person you would love to have take you shopping?

Either Gok Wan or Louise Roe.  Gok Wan is so fabulous and I’d love to have a great day out, with great shopping, some lunch, it’d be the ultimate day out.  However, Louise Roe seems to be able to transform women’s bodies and get their personalities in some fantastic looks for all occasions and I’d love to have her basically buy me a new wardrobe and show me how to wear it.


10- Favourite type of food?

Ethnic.  I’m not that keen on heavy carbs, they make me feel awful and bloated.  But I love ethnic food based around rice, noodles, etc.  Also, the flavours and textures are so so delicious.


11- Chocolate or vanilla?

Hmmmm….. Vanilla.  I love vanilla in lots of things actually, come to think of it.  A lot of my candles have had vanilla as an ingredient, I always get Skinny Vanilla Lates at Starbucks or Costa and Vanilla goes into pretty much any baking recipe with me.

There you go, Becky (and everyone else) – all 11 questions, answered!

My nominations are…

Nicole Van Der Heide

I tried to find 11, honestly I did, but there just aren’t that many people I already follow who have under 200 followers!  I didn’t want to just nominate random blogs, because then how could you trust my opinion on them?

Here are your questions, ladies

1. If you could own any pet in the world, what would it be and what would you call it?

2. What’s your favourite thing about Autumn?

3. Tea, Coffee or Hot Chocolate?

4. What’s your Beauty guilty pleasure?

5. If you had to choose one brand to use forever, never being allowed to use products from others, which one would you pick?

6. if you had to give up foundation or concealer, which one would it be?

7. Sweet or savoury?

8. Favourite app?

9. What has been your best purchase of 2014 so far?

10. You’re other half suggests a weekend away, do you want to go on a) a city break in a suave hotel, or b) go to a log cabin in the Lake District?

11. Would you rather not have finger nails or not have eye brows?

There you go, girls!  Good luck :)

Thanks so much again to the lovely Becky for nominating me.  Every time I get a new follower or a like or a comment, I feel all warm and fuzzy inside, let alone a nomination!  Thanks to all for your support that you’ve shown me since I started this blog, it means so much to me and I adore the blogging community.  That being said, I’m nearly at 100 followers and I will be hosting a giveaway as soon as I hit tit- I’ve already got my prizes lined up!  Also, watch this space for details of the launch of my YouTube channel, coming soon!

Much love,

Rosie

L’Oreal Paris So Couture Super Liner Review: Make-Up Monday

Happy Monday, girls!

Hope that it wasn’t too painful for everyone going back to work or school today.  I know I found it really hard to get out of bed today with it being so suddenly cold and miserable for the first time in ages in England today.

Anyways, I’m back with Make-Up Monday and this time, I’ve got a review.

LINER5

This is the new L’Oreal Product – the So Couture Super Liner, the eye liner sequal to their new mascara, the Volume Million Lashes So Couture Mascara, which you can read my full review of here.P1040323In fact, it is so new that it is still part of the iintroductory offer, where you can only get it (but for free) when you spend more than £9.99 on L’Oreal products in a single transaction.  Considering the mascara is £10.99, you can head on down there and get both of these amazing products for that price.

I love the regular L’Oreal Super Liner and would still happily use it.  However, this is just as good, and has a lot of pros.  It’s not perfect though, and has a potentially deal-breaking con.

Pros:

  • The nib is super duper fine and stays thin, even after a lot of use.  I find some eye liners can loose the fine points after a bit of use, but this one hasn’t shown any signs of that happening.
  • It lasts absolutely ages.  It’s waterproof and smudge proof.  I often accidentally rub my eyes but it doesn’t affect the liner at all.  Also, it can get very hot and sweaty at work or in rehearsals, but nothing budges this, except for my current make-up removing cleanser.
  • It’s black.  Sounds basic, but some liners claim to be black but end up being an awkward grey colour, which I hate.  If I wanted grey liner, I would’ve bought grey liner.
  • It can create any kind of line.  This is the only liner I’ve bought that has made it really really easy to create really thin lines close to the lash line that just enhance your look subtly.  Other liners I’ve used take so much delicate effort to get that effect, but you can create this look quickly with this product.  It’s also really easy to create thicker lines and wings for the Autumn winged liner classics.

To show the different looks you can create, I did one eye in a ‘thin and subtle’ (left) look and one in the ‘classic winged liner’ (right).

LINER1 LINER3 LINER2 LINER4

Cons:

  • It can feel a bit dry.  Because the nib isn’t constantly dipped into ink, it can feel or look as if it’s drying up, even if it’s not really.  I find that liners that have a more constant ink supply, like the regular Super Liner, last a lot longer in general and you get more use out of them.  I’m not sure how long this one has left.  I’ve probably had it a month and sometimes think it could be drying up, which is quite a short life for a liner, especially considering I haven’t work in every single day.  My other super liner I’ve had for 3 months and it still works perfectly normally.

So overall, I love this product.  I’m just going to hold out to see how long it lasts and if the result of that is not that good, I’ll revert back to using my other Super Liner for the majority and see how that goes.  But, I do really love everything else about this product and is one of the best liners I’ve ever tried, especially in terms of application.

Let me know if you’ve tried this product yet and what you think of it!

Much love,

Rosie

September Favourites 2014

Hi ladies!

It’s Something Sunday and I’m bringing you my September Favourites 2014.  The month of September has flown by ridiculously quickly and my life has changed path so much and so often, it’s been such a whirlwind, but I’m looking forward to experiencing the next bit of the journey in October.  I got a few bits in the last week I’ve been loving too, but I don’t feel I’ve used them long enough to call them a monthly favourite.

Anyways, without anymore side tracks… here we go!

Hair

1. John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo and Conditioner (£5.99 each)

SEP HAUL 2

This has been an absolute stand out for me this month.  This set has really given me amazing volume day to day as well as helping to improve the thickness of my hair in the long run.  I’d say this is my main use hair set, but I do use alternative products once or twice a week to help keep my hair refreshed and getting different treatments.  At £5.99 each, they’re reasonably priced and do a great job, so very worth the money.

2. Fudge Urban Iced Raspberry & Vanilla Hairspray (£4.99)

SEP HAUL 9

I’ve never really been one to have strong opinions on my hairspray.  I just use it and hope it works – I know if it’s bad, but I’ve never used an amazing one… until I gave this a go.  I heard about this ages ago in a Zoella monthly favourites, and picked this up at Boots earlier in the month and just love it.  The smell is amazing, so sweet and doesn’t make you feel like choking (unlike other brands).  It’s really really strong holding, but not sticky or stiff.  Equally, it isn’t like the ones that are so obsessed with being able to be brushed out that it has no weight or substance to it and can’t hold a style.  It’s also great for holding texture and creating big volume.  £4.99 is a great price in anyones books, especially for this quality.

Skincare

1. Clarins Gentle Night Cream (£41 for full size)

SEP HAUL 10

I got this sample in a goodie bag from a fashion show my mum’s friend put on.  My mum didn’t want the goodie bag so gave it to me.  There were all sorts of things in there, including six Clarins samples.  I wasn’t too keen on the rest of them, but this one was amazing.  You can even see that I cut open the top of it to get every last bit of product out.  It’s so nourishing, smells great and just left my skin feeling incredible.  Though I loved it (obviously, because it’s in my favourites), the price tag of £41 for a full size is insane and I’m not sure I could justify this purchase to myself with my low wages.  I’ll probably end up using my birthday money to treat myself to this because I’ve never tried a night cream as good as this, but I just can’t get it right now.

4. Boots Essentials Cucumber 3 Minute Clay Mask (£1.50)

SEP HAUL 15

I also got this in the goodie bag.  This is the full size and considering the small price tag, this has made no difference to the big impact it has made on me.  This is such a great quick fix to quickly de-stress before bed or for pampering, it’s just amazing.  It’s so cooling, refreshing and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft.  £1.50 is barely anything and this is definitely worth it.

Make-Up

1. Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Eyeshadow (£4.99)SEPI’ve used this so much this month, it’s the On and On Bronze shade.  It looks great on it’s own or as a base to gold/brown/bronze toned eye shadows.  Also, as Autumn creeps in, these warmer colours are really coming back into fashion and I’m loving it!  It genuinely lasts the full day and helps keep your eye make-up in place.  I really want to get more shades of this because I really like it.

2. L’Oreal So Couture Superliner (Currently free in store only when you spend £9.99 more on other L’Oreal

SEP1

This is so new, I can’t even get a link for it to the Boots website!  At the moment, it’s in a great trial period where you can only get it (for free) when you spend £9.99 or more in a single transaction on L’Oreal make-up.  It’s not even available online.  I urge you to go down to the closest Boots and get this on offer NOW!  This is the best eye liner I’ve ever used.  It can create the tiniest, thinnest lines that subtly thicken the lash line or it can create thicker lines for a dramatic look, or meet somewhere inbetween for the classic Autumn winged eye liner.  Flicks are super easy to create and it’s also easy to get the line tight into your lash line.  Incredible.

3. L’Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Pearl Powder (£8.99)

SEP2

I got this in the shade Rose Boudoir.  I wanted a really subtle blush for my head shots earlier in the month and ended up using this pretty much every day.  It’s amazing as an every day, natural looking blush, but can also be used on top of cheekbones with other blushes to add extra highlight and shimmer.  £8.99 is a pretty good price, especially for something like this as it’s going to last me a long time.

4. L’Oreal Paris Brow Artiste Eyebrow Pencil (£5.49)

sep5

This was my first ever experience in using an eye brow pencil – before I was really sceptical because I didn’t want the ‘sharpie’ look, but I eventually gave it a go and I’ve loved it.  It took a while to get used to how much pressure to apply when filling them in and getting the shape right, but I’ve been loving the way my brows look lately.  I think they look much more natural now and last all day.  I use the shade 03 Brunette, as this is the closest to my hair colour.  £5.49 is a good price, too.

4. Boots Natural Collection Lash Care Mascara (£1.99)

sep6

When shopping for a brow pencil, I knew I’d need a clear mascara to set as I wouldn’t be using powders and waxes like in the past.  I trust the Boots Natural Collection to do the job simply and effectively, at a low cost.  This makes my brows stay on all day long, with no budging.  It’s not too thick either so doesn’t make your eyebrows stiff.  I also use this on ‘no-make-up’ days, if I want a pick me up, just so my eyes look a little more open and awake.  Also, you’d be mad not to buy this at £1.99.

Miscellaneous

1. Secret Gardens: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Colouring Book (£6.79)sep3

Ok, I know.  I’m nearly 18, surely I should be over colouring.  And I thought I was (because I hadn’t done so in YEARS), but then I heard about this in a Zoella video and thought it was so cute.  Also, I’ve either been ill craving something mindless to do or I’ve been overly busy and in need of a basic creative escape that doesn’t require much thought.  It’s great to have a big of imagination and something fun to do to take your mind off any stresses for a little bit.  At £6.49, it’s also really cheap for such a high quality of book, with such detailed pictures.

2. The SacconeJolys on YouTube

saccone joly

This family, to me, is pretty much the definition of life goals.  I’ve been subscribed to them for ages, but I’d never really watched them that much.  However, I put on one of their videos when I was ill, and just fell in love with the sweet family and have watched a bunch of their big old episodes and have been following them daily this month.  They vlog their daily family life and post at 6pm every day.  They are amazing parents with two beautiful children, Emilia and Eduardo as well as six Maltese dogs.  I love watching them and I hope my family in the future is as happy and sweet.

3. The X Factor

xfactor

Yes, it’s here again.  I must confess, I hadn’t really got into the X Factor in the last couple of years, but I’m hooked this year.  I love so many of the acts and have literally been able to predict everything this season, my family and friends think I’m psychic or secretly Dermot O’Leary right now, not even joking.  Can’t wait for the live shows to start next week!

There we have it!  Those are all my September favourites – let me know if you’ve tried any of these products and what you think of them.  I’d also like to hear what you loved this September.  I can’t believe it’s October already – how quickly the time flies when you’re having fun.  Also, it’s less than 2 months now until my 18th Birthday and I’m getting really excited!!

Much love,

Rosie

Best Sister Ever: Bonus Blog!!

Hi guys!

My regular Something Sunday blog post will be up later, but this is just a little bonus I’m writing from my phone.

When my LUSH order arrived yesterday (click here to read the haul post), I obviously had to show my little sister because I was so excited! Me and my sister are very close and always get each other stuff – I always end up getting her something on my food shops and she goes on a lot of random school trips and stuff and we always get each other things. She especially always finds stuff for me to say thank you for lifts and all that, but it is a two way street.

This morning, she went shopping with her friend Gabby and was sweet enough to pick me up a ‘Shoot for the Stars’ bath bomb!

IMG_0176.JPG

This is from their Christmas Collection. I wanted to buy this last year but never got round to it. It’s supposed to turn your bath lots of different colours then leave a quick fire of quicksilver. It has a warm, soothing scent and leaves you relaxed and soaking in a midnight blue and silver shimmer tub. I can’t wait to give it a go! I’ll definitely be reviewing this alongside the products from the haul for my Super Short Saturday blog posts.

IMG_0177.JPG

Thank you, Pippa! You’re the best sister a girl could ask for, so thoughtful!!

Much love,
Rosie

‘Sisters by chance, friends by choice’

LUSH Haul!: Super Saturday

Happy Saturday, girlies!

Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend, getting lots of rest and catching up on yourself after a long week at work.  Nothing beats a nice pampering session at the weekend, which is why I was so so so excited to see that this arrived today!

LUSH HAUL 1

My LUSH Order!!  I wouldn’t usually do an online shop for these kind of things, but my nearest LUSH store is a quite a bit of a train ride today, and when I all I want is LUSH products, it’s better to me to get it delivered for £3.95 rather than paying £8 for a train return.  Anyways, getting back on track…

I was seriously craving some more pamper products as we’ve been rolling into Autumn, which means it’s officially bath season.  This is the time of year where the cold weather just makes everything more difficult and annoying, so a lot more TLC is needed.  I’ve bought a lot from LUSH before, but I’d only ever really picked up the seasonal products, I don’t know why, I just did.  So, I thought that with this haul, I’d get a few of the LUSH ‘classics’ I’ve heard people raving about as well as just one seasonal bubble bar.  I adore LUSH products and using them just feels so lovely.  Especially the bubble bars, because you get so so much use out of them.

Anyways, let’s get started!

First off… Bath Bombs!

LUSH HAUL 3

“Let the sun set on your worries”.  This bomb ‘Twilight’ claims to turn your bath the colours of the prettiest sun set, getting darker until you’re eventually left with a dark purple.  The fragrance is designed to help you to sleep, with lavender, benzoin and toka that aim to soothe and help with insomnia.  I’ll definitely be trying this out the night before one of my fist auditions, because I guarantee I’ll find it really hard to sleep!  (£3.35)

LUSH HAUL 6

This is probably one of the products that pretty much everyone has tried, except me!  “For delicious looking skin”, this ‘Butterball’ bomb contains cocoa butter pieces which melt in the bath as the bomb fizzes, absorbing into the skin as you soak.  Ylang Ylang is also another fragrance used which is also used in aromatherapy for stress, panic, anxiety, anger, fear and depression.  This mixed with the cocoa butter smell is going to be amazing – can’t wait to see if it lives up to the hype!! (£2.65)

LUSH HAUL 8

This is Sakura (which I think is the prettiest name ever).  Simply described as “blooming lovely”, Sakura is supposed to be the celebration of Spring in a bath bomb.  Although I know it’s not Spring, a girl can still dream towards the days when it’ll start getting lighters and warmer again.  Also, sometimes I just have a craving for floral fragrances, and seeing as the scent is inspired by the Japanese Cherry Blossom Tree, I have a really good feeling about this one.  It also contains mimosa and jasmine oils, and jasmine is one of my favourite scents ever. (£3.35)

LUSH HAUL 7

Again, ‘Space Girl’ is just one of those LUSH products that everyone seems to have used, except for me.  With the intent to make the user “Feel out of this world”, Space Girl even looks extremely cool and funky.  With a more sweet/fruity fragrance, this will be really nice for when I want to have a bath to make me feel refreshed/uplifted, like maybe getting ready for a night out or something with a quick fix face mask – just thinking out loud here.  Space Girl is supposed to spin around in your bath, releasing popping candy into the bath.  Grapefruit oil is a main ingredient, which is supposed to be really good for clarifying and toning skin as well as lifting the spirits. (£2.35)

Now on to Bubble Bars!

LUSH HAUL 5

This is ‘Dorothy’, obviously named because of the fact it has a rainbow on it and ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ is the famous song the character Dorothy sings in ‘The Wizard of Oz’.  I had to buy this when I saw it as The Wizard of Oz is one of my favourite films EVER.  It claims to “Leave you feeling wizard”.  I’m not sure what wizard feels like, but it sounds great.  The Ylang Ylang and floral fragrances are designed to help you relax and escape on a trip down the yellow brick road in your mind, taking yourself away from reality, much like Dorothy did.  I don’t know what colour this will turn the bath, but I’m hoping it’s rainbow colour.  (£3.25)

LUSH HAUL 4

This was too cute to not get.  Also, you just have to get something from the LUSH Seasonal section each season, it’s just a thing.  This is ‘Sparkly Pumpkin’, and is obviously a part of the Halloween range.  “Design bath time into a ball” – it seems like this pumpkin has a Bippity-Boppity-Boo effect to it, and Cinderella was the first Disney princess film I watched!  It has a very warming Autumnal scent and turns your bath into a sparkly orange pool.  Though the scents be warming, it’s also got rejuvenating qualities.  (£3.50)

Next is Body!

LUSH HAUL 2

The only product in this category, the ‘King of Skin Crown’ is one of the LUSH products that has been really on the rise lately, after being heavily raved about by beauty blogger and YouTuber, Tanya Burr.  “For skin that feels royally good”, this little beauty is supposed to leave your skin feeling nourished and silky smooth.  You use is on damp skin, rubbing all over the body, then you rinse it off.  With key ingredients being avocado, oatmilk and banana, this isn’t necessarily the classic LUSH scent, but reviewers have said it smells amazing and lingers lightly on the skin for a long time.  I’m really interested to see how I feel about this one.  (£5.75)

Finally, Skin Care!

LUSH HAUL 9

This is the ‘Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub’, which claims to “Scrub and Soften”.  I bought this mainly for my face, as I’ve been on the hunt for a scrub, but the fact this can also do my body if I like it, made it really appealing.  You can use it on damp skin for a gentle scrub or on dry skin to really get rid of any huge problem patches.  I think I’ll only be using this on my face for a gentle scrub like twice a week.  With a key ingredient being vodka, this is definitely the most unusual of the products in this haul.  With pure sea salt being used to scrub as well as seaweed and coconut oil, this really does have everything to make it a versatile product.  The vodka is supposed to liven skin, the salt is for scrubbing, seaweed is famous for its deep cleansing powers and coconut oil is obviously fantastic for moisturising.  I’m really looking forward to using this.  (£13.95)

LUSH HAUL 10

And last, but not least, this is the ‘Cupcake Fresh Face Mask’.  This is one of the LUSH products I’ve heard people rave about for years, but have never tried it.  As I can get oily skin, I love products that absorb oil without drying the skin, which is why this is so appealing to me.  Also, it smells like mint chocolate.  You also have to keep it in the fridge, which will mean it’s extremely cooling on the face.  It is designed specifically for teenage/oily skin but is a really good basic face mask supposedly for all skin types as it “cleanses and clarifies” as well as removing oil and reducing break outs.  (£6.50)

Note on these kind of products: If you keep the packaging of 5 LUSH pots/tubes, you can return the empty pots in exchange for a free Fresh Face Mask.

Phew!  There you go!  My October 2014 LUSH Haul!  I’m really excited to try all these out.  Saturday is supposed to be ‘Super Short’ but that would’ve been really hard with this exciting delivery – so for the next 7 weeks, I’ll be doing my Super Short Saturday posts on reviewing these products individually.

Let me know if there are any other LUSH products that you couldn’t live without or tell me what you think of the products I bought!

Much love,

Rosie
