MUA Hall of Fame Swatches and Review!

February 25, 2015


You all should know by now my obsession with affordable beauty and MUA is one of my all time favourite brands to get! The majority of the products I have tested are amazing quality so I love the brand a hell of a lot! I decided that I have been procrastinating this review for too long because I bought this product in October last year, and I think I have used it frequently enough to give a full review of it today.

The MUA Hall Of Fame Palette is a selection of the top 12 most used eyeshadows made by MUA. It is small and compact, and weighs approximately 9.6 grams. Here are the swatches!


I really like all the colours and the I haven't used them all, but I have used Bare, Rose-Ash, Lion and Titan a lot. I have tried them both on my sister and myself and they work really well, they are really pigmented and last super long on. However, it is best you get a primer because it tends to sink into my fine lines a bit. But mine are fairly prominent so I would have expected much more. 

The eyeshadows also come with an eyeshadow brush, but frankly that thing was rubbish and I've either binned in or lost it so I can't say much.

This retails for £4 which is honestly an amazing price for 12 eyeshadows! 

I am planning to do some looks with it for you guys, so watch this space!

My overall rating;


See you guys next time!

Friday Finds and Feature Follow Friday!

February 20, 2015

Hey,

So today I decided to do a what-I-call 'Meme Mix Up'. They are both Friday memes, and I am not a big fan of posting two separate posts a day, so I chose to make this post. The memes I am doing are Friday Finds and Feature Follow Friday.

Friday Finds showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased).
The point of Feature Follow Friday is to meet friends and increase followers.

I also really wanted to get people interested in other memes, and doing Meme Mix Ups are probably going to be helpful

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower- Book Review

February 17, 2015

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Steven Chbosky


I wasn't a huge fan of this book. I enjoyed the book, but it wasn't my favourite novel. I am yet to watch the film though, which I think I will enjoy better than the book.

The Liebster Award!

February 15, 2015

Once again, I am a very bad person.

The lovely Chinella from La La Chic nominated me to do this last month! And what did I do? I sat at home, on Pinterest. Sorry Chinella.

The award, which Chinella explains really well, is for new or quiet bloggers who want recognitions for the effort they put in to their blog. It was so kind of her to tag mee!
Yes, although I am a very loud person, I am a quiet-ish blogger. I think. Hehehe :D

Well, I am gonna do it now, and I really hope that I do it justice! Thank you so much Chinella for nominating me!
Rules for the Liebster Award:
Thank the person who nominated you, *mentally ticks off*
Answer the questions given,
Nominate 11 other bloggers who have less than 200 bloglovin' followers and link their blogs
Create 11 questions for the nominees to answer
Notify all nominees by social media.

What inspired you to start blogging?
I love to write, and read, and I love the internet. Then one day I flew to the top of the mango tree on my broomstick and my cat and I put those into a cauldron and *BHAM!* Blog.
Just kidding ya! But it was sort of like that. I was always interesting in tech-y stuff, as well as reading and writing, and when I first heard of the blog scene, and knew I wanted to join in!
Have you ever felt like giving up?
Yes, and I have twice! That is when I just need a 'break'. I gave up my fashion blogs that I have before because they just weren't me to be completely honest, I wanted something more- and I think I've found it here.
Where do u wish to see your blog in the next one year?
Where everyone whats to see their blogs, bigger, better, more consistent! My goal is to get to 100 bloglovin' followers by my Birthday though, I think I can do it! Maybe...
Who are your favourite bloggers?
All of them. No joke.
What keeps u motivated to blog?
My photography, and my audience. If I see something I like, I will be like, "This is going on the blog!" Then some snaps are taken of it and it is kept on my camera for a couple weeks before I remember and go through the process of editing and writing.
Tell us something about your blog
It's about me! Hehehe :D 
tell us something about yourself
I love baking, cooking, sewing, and more! I am a very crafty person.
Mary's father has 5 daughters Lala, Lele, Lili,Lolo. What is the name of the 5th daughter?
Lulu, wait no, Mary!
If you threw a White stone into the Red sea, what would it become?
Pink?
If you were in a dark room with a candle, a woodstove, a match and a gas lamp which do u light first?
The match!
Did  you goggle the last three questions before you got the correct answers?
Nope, maybe... ;D

My questions!
  1. Describe your blog in one sentence. With ten words.
  2. If you had £1000 to invest in your blog, what would you do?
  3. What's your favourite blog?
  4. What type of blogger are you?
  5. What do you do when haters comment on your blog?
  6. If I was reading your blog, what would you want your blog to say about you?
  7. Help! A rogue cheese grater is running around your town, chasing cars and attacking lollipop men! What do you do? You have 38 minutes, a bottle of moisturizer, a lampshade and a mobility scooter!
  8. What's your favourite thing about blogging?
  9. What's your least favourite thing about blogging?
  10. Is your middle name Jeremy? Would you ever change your middle name to Jeremy?
  11. If it was possible to have a full time job as a blogger, would you take the chance?

Also, I am tagging;

It was actually pretty hard to find people to tag, because this tag has already been very popular, so everyone has done it, but I found my eleven, who I think haven't done it (I think) but if you have, you don't have to, but my questions are completely new, aren't they? So they should be very fun to do still.

New Blog

Updates- New Stuff, Posts and a Giveaway?

February 04, 2015

Hey Guys!

I am always trying to make this blog a better experience for all of you guys. I would love for you guys to give me feedback and make it better. I have also been planning and working hard to make an amazing blog!

So I have made a list of 5 things that will be happening on my blog soon!

1. Posts

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you'll realize that I have gotten into a phase/mood posting schedule. Recently I write a hell of a lot about books! I wrote a beauty post, which was my first in a long time! I am working on a lot of new beauty, D.I.Y. and fashion posts to go with my regular posts.
If you have an amount of posts you'll like me to do per week or something. (E.G. 3 posts a week or 15 posts a month) then please let me know and I will try my best to meet you guys' expectations! I am trying to post about 8-10 times a month right now. each a different segment.

2. Giveaway?

Soooo... Yes, there will be a giveaway! When I get to 100 bloglovin' followers (Right now I am 40-something, so hopefully by the summer) I will be doing a small blog giveaway to celebrate! If you have any suggestions for what you would like to see in the giveaway, let me know please! I do have some ideas up my sleeve. Please share this blog with your friends if you enjoy it. And if you haven't, please subscribe!

3. Banners and Widgets

I recently changed my blog banner from my Christmas one back to the regular collage that I've had for a while. But I want my blog to look a bit more professional but still fun, so I have created a new banner and design too!
I hope that I can launch them quite soon!
Some of you may have seen the NEW 'About Me' Widget which I am really excited about! That is already up and is on the right hand side of the blog and I have put it below if you want to see!


So that's about all that is new right now!
