I'm having a blog makeover: Under construction!

I have grown tired of how my blog looks. I will be changing my blog name but hopefully it won't effect it too much. I haven't decided what to yet though. Hopefully I can set up a redirect once I have changed my blog name. 

I'm just having a complete redesign but I hope you will still keep reading while I sort it out. 

I hope to be back to regular blogging soon also. I have just been very uninspired lately which I think is partly to do with my blog appearance. 

But its back to uni on Monday so I need some sort of relief from uni work. Hope those who have just started uni are enjoying their first year. I don't want to by in third year cry cry oh well.

Speak Soon

DIY Makeup Brush Holders

I like to be able to grab my makeup brushes and see where they are. They also look pretty on display. I made some makeup brush holders with little vases from Dunelm Mill but fancied a change. Even though I chose to use the same glitter and they basically look the same just round but anyway (girl problems). I love candles so have a few empty jars so I thought I would use them to make my new makeup brush holders.

Here's what I used

Life: I've Joined Weight Watchers

Many of you don't know but I decided to lose weight earlier in the year. At that point I was following Tesco Diets. I managed to lose 14lbs on that diet. However, going on holiday meant I put 5 back on and I hadn't really tried to get it off. My dieting came to a halt after my holiday. Returning home for the summer sent my eating patterns out the window. Its so hard to diet when everyone around seems to be eating all the foods in the world. 

I found dieting at uni so much more easier because two of my housemates were also dieting. Also at uni I could only eat what was on my diet plan because I was doing my own shopping so planned ahead. I do like to be organised I am a definite planner.

Life: Congratulations You're Going to University

A Level Results Day is here again for another year. Whether you got in to your first choice or went through clearing you made it. You're going to University and you're going to have the time of your life. Celebrate! I wish I was starting it all over again but I'm going in to 3rd year already. Where has the time gone? It was 2 years ago since I got my results.

I have been doing blog posts around my time at uni so I will link them all here for easy access.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Micellar Cleansing waters have been everywhere lately. Like most products there is an original cult favorite, Bioderma. However, I chose to try the Garnier version to see what all the fuss is about.

Lush Tea Tree Toner Tab

My skin has now started to improve finally. It has been a long process of exfoliating, cleansing and face wash. But now my skin has started to calm down I want to maintain it.

Sunday Style: River Island New Season Picks

I was at my local River Island store hoping to find some last minute sale items. However, I was more interested in their new season. I prefer buying clothes for the autumn/winter period rather than buying summer clothes. I like the variety and colours more. Anyway I thought I would show you my top picks from River Island's new season collection.

Body Shop Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash & Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask

I have another review for 2 more products from the Body Shop Seaweed skincare range. I love this skincare range as it is perfect for my skin. It leaves it soft and smooth and looking refreshed. The deep cleansing facial wash is defined as a mild cleansing gel which helps to rebalance moisture and sebum levels. Then the ionic clay mask aims to draw out impurities and clarify the skin.

Collection 2000 Fix Me Up Long Lasting Make-up Fixer

I swear by setting spray for everyday use and especially for nights out. I have noticed my makeup doesn't seem to last that long but with a setting spray it is there all day. I am a lover of the Urban Decay setting sprays but thought I would try the Collection 2000 one.

Eye Kandy Cosmetics: Sugar Cane and Toffee

I found Eye Kandy Cosmetics after my search for glitter for my end of year ball makeup. I wanted glitter because I thought my makeup would look pretty bland without it. I managed to find Eye Kandy Cosmetics after a little google search which led to a purchase. I purchased the two glitters Sugar Cane and Toffee.
As you can see in the picture Toffee is a lot finer than Sugar Cane. Sugar Cane has more of a gritty feel. On the day I wore them both by mixing them together in a separate pot. I was being indecisive and couldn't decide which looked better.
