Royal Botanic Gardens.

February 25, 2014

On Friday, my sister and I decided to wake up early (well,'s early for us) and head out to the Botanic Gardens with our cameras. Somehow we managed to get such a lovely day weather-wise, the sun even came out, say what Scotland? Of course I took a little bag of nuts with me because I like to creep on the squirrels. The wee guy above was so friendly and happy to come right up and take the food from our hands. Though I was jealous of the man who had all the squirrels and fancy pigeons round him like some kind of Jesus. Even though most of the plants aren't in their prime due to the winter, everything was so pretty and we had such a nice afternoon rounded off by some food and coffee at Costa, mmm.

If you're ever visiting Edinburgh, you have to go here (especially if it's summer time). Hope you enjoyed this post xo

Current favourite beauty products.

February 23, 2014

I've been sticking to a lot of the same products lately, mostly because I can't be bothered putting too much thought into deciding what to use. It's nice when you have lots of reliable, pretty products. I thought I'd share with you everything beauty related I'm loving at the moment, some of these are things I've had for a while and others are fairly new to me.

I've mentioned before how much I love this Revlon Nearly Naked foundation. After I finished my last bottle I didn't repurchase and kind of forgot all about it, but I don't know why because it's so amazing! The finish is beautiful and can definitely be built up for full coverage. Instead of going for the usual Collection concealer, I saw this Stay Time one by Seventeen and decided to give it a try. It's quite similar, very creamy and doesn't look cakey over any imperfections so I'm loving it so far.

If you watched my haul video, you'll know I picked up these new Revlon lip colours and have been loving them. The matte one is called Striking and is a lovely orange toned red, something I didn't have in my collection before. The lacquer one is called Whimsical and is a pretty, plum toned pink with flecks of shimmer. It really is a perfect day time colour! Something I wear non-stop, especially for days at work, is this pinky red toned lip balm by Maybelline. It smells amazing and looks so lovely.

Even though I'm always loving my Naked 2 palette, I decided to give my Sleek one some love lately. This is the Storm palette and features a mix of shimmers and mattes. The top two are shades were finished a long time ago now, so recently I've been using the bottom left shimmery brown and also the matte brown for over my lids. As you can see I've not been brave enough to use any of the pink or blue shades haha, brown and beige all the way.

I usually use another mascara under this for length, but this one creates such nice volume and is probably a second favourite of mine to Bourjois Volume Clubbing. I was using a black kohl pencil to create a subtle line for a while, but I've went back to using this amazing pen from Collection.

This is the best makeup cleanser I've ever used, I promise you will love it if you haven't tried it already. It feels so soothing on the skin and removes everything so easily. As it's been the colder months, I've been using a richer moisturiser, and this Moisture Match one by Garnier is perfect. I only use it at night though as it takes quite a while to sink in.

I've been wearing this Britney Spears Fantasy perfume a lot lately, as it's such a huge bottle (and was a total bargain) I don't feel guilty about spraying it so often. It smells like sweeties, and who wouldn't want to smell like them? I bought one of my favourite ever Impulse sprays after forgetting about it for ages, it just smells delicious. Again, I've mentioned this Nip + Fab body butter before, but recently it's regained it's way back to beside my bed so I can pop it on my hands at night. It definitely smells good enough to eat.

Do you share my love for any of these products? What have you been liking recently? xo

Top | H&M
Treggings | Topshop
Boots | H&M
Jacket | Primark

I can't believe I forgot to feature these boots in my collective haul video. I only bought them recently and have barely taken them off! They're perfect for adding a little bit of height yet so comfortable, I'm definitely obsessed. Also wearing my other new love, of course - these Topshop treggings. I can't get enough of wearing them either because they are just beautiful and so soft. Made this outfit even more simple by chucking on my parka, oh well, it's the perfect outfit for going out for some brunch (my favourite thing ever, any offers?)

Thank you to everyone who took the time to watch my Youtube video though, it means a lot and motivates me to make some more so much love to you! Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday xo

Video | Collective haul.

February 13, 2014

Hi lovelies! I've finally got around to recording my first proper Youtube video. I can't say that it didn't feel weird sitting there talking to a camera, but hopefully I'll get better at it. For my first one I just decided to do a collective haul of things I've bought over the past couple of months. Sorry it's so long haha, I guess I ramble more than I think I do.

Hope you enjoy it, have a nice evening :) xo

I'm sorry for starting this post off with a picture of balls but hey there you go, haha. Found myself on the wall.

OOTN from a few weeks ago, love this Missguided playsuit so much. My big boy Waffles being cute & happy (because he has food).

Went to see Wolf of Wall Street, it was amazing but I didn't realise how long it was gonna be - numb bum. Couldn't resist the 20p sweetie machines.

Think you burnt your pizza mate. New skirt from H&M is such a babe.

Went out for lunch with my aunty to The Beach House, mmm delicious lentil soup. New penguin backpack ;)

Obsessed with my new Topshop treggings. I initially went in to get the tartan ones I featured in my wish list but these won by far. So comfortable and nice fitting! "Oh hey there, I see you have jaffa cakes..." Love my cheeky little Dexter.
