Temporary Break from Blogging

I have my last university exam coming up on August 28, so theres going to be a little bit of a quiet spell in the blogging until after that date. 

I do apologise to my readers, I was hoping to be able to pre-write some blog posts beforehand, but I've been revising for a few weeks and it just hasn't left me any time. 

I do promise that there will be some really interesting posts coming up as soon as I've got the exam over and done with. I'm thinking of starting a youtube account in the near future so please keep an eye out for some of my next projects and even give me some suggestions on what you would like to see.

It's only a week and a half and I look forward to coming and showing you some of the ideas that have been swimming around in my head for a while. With the standard review on some new purchases as well! 

Thanks for reading :)

Wantable Makeup Box August 2014


I said it was coming and here it is....the Wantable August 2014 make up box! Wantable are an American company who send out subscription boxes every month containing 4 or 5 full size make up only products, they also have separate boxes for accessories and intimates. This is one of the few US subscription services which ship to the UK and it's been one of the boxes at the top of my list, so I'm super excited the first one has arrived.

So, when I really wanted to try the Dandelion blusher by Benefit I looked to eBay to find a good deal, as I couldn’t justify spending £23 when I already have a a few barely used blushers.

Review of Benefit, Clinique and Mary Kay Mascaras


Does anyone else feel like mascara is one of those items you spend way too much money on? I forever seem to be buying new mascaras in the hope that one of them is going to be that Holy Grail product, the mascara that I will run back and buy over and over again. I always buy a mascara that seems to be all the rage, use it and while I might like it, there’s always that one little thing that makes me look to replace it when it’s finished. So, I was pretty pleased when I had a few mascara samples to try out because it gives me a chance to see if I actually like any of them before I waste my money buying them. We will begin with my least favourite of the four:
