Cheaper Version 1

I've decided too start a new weekly/ whenever I find them post. 'Cheaper Version' as I love finding new bargains and I'm sure you do too!
I'm in the middle of making my Birthday wishlist as Mum always asks for one! I really wanted these gorgeous shoes from River Island...

They retail at £60.00 Which I think is a little too much.... But when I saw these beauties I couldn't believe it!
 I went on Garage, I found these for £29.99- HALF PRICE and almost identical. Definitely worth it girls.

Quick Facts Tag

When I first started reading blogs, some of my favorite posts to read were the 'tag' posts. I love finding out random facts about other people and their lives. (I'm a bit of a nosy parker). I find it gives a blog a much more personal touch if I can relate to the writer and know a few things about them as a person. It's all good bashing out a load of product reviews but I find them a much more enjoyable read if I 'know' (hypothetically speaking) the person who is writing them. I've seen this 'Quick Facts' post appear on my Dashboard a few times over the past few days so I thought I would give it a whirl myself.

MUA Haul and Review

I am off College today so I thought I would post a very out of date MUA haul. 'There's no getting away from the fact this is the best priced cosmetics collection available in the country'. MUA is famous with UK bloggers for its £1 prices so I thought I would dive in and tell you all. The packaging is rather plain, but who’s complaining at £1? At least it’s not tacky right? Plus I have decided to cut down on the amount I write for reviews as I personally hate coming across huge paragraphs and would rather points! All of these products were £1.

I bought two eyeliners (shades 6&7).
Positives- Cheap, well pigmented
Negatives- starts to flake after an hour, takes 2-3 minutes to dry, applicator and product thickness means application can be difficult/ uneven.
Shade 6- Shade 7

Bronzer Shade 1 – Lightest shade
Positives- Very sparkly!
Negatives- Quite a gritty texture, more bronze than gold. Glitter leaves your cheeks very quickly!

Blusher Shade 2
Positives- Perfect for my skin tone (fair to medium), gave a natural flushed look.
Negatives- N/A

Lipstick Shade 1
Lipstick Shade 3- does tend to bleed and is very pink!
Lipstick Shade 8
Lipstick Shade 9
Remind me of e.l.f essential lipsticks.
Positives- Easy to apply, pigment noticeable, look more expensive, moisterising.
Negatives- Need to top up often as it does transfer.
Shade 1, 3, 8, 9

Pearl Eyeshadow Shade 8
Positives- Very pigmented, blends easily
Negatives- This colour is quite bright, not really my style

Sorry about the lack of posting, my charger is still broken and I have to place it in a particular way which is so frustrating! Plus I’ve had my cello exam which went good I think... Don’t want to jinx it!

Just another Collective Haul...

Hey everyone! This is a simple haul for you all, hope you enjoy!

So in my Village, there's a shop which is all about Yankee Candles called UNO, which I LOVE! So I bought this sample for £1.05 and a Yankee candle holder for £4.99 and it is soo gorgeous!!

This second item is from an independent jewelry boutique called Eden and this was £10. It sells the most beautiful, vintage, individual jewelry around... I was in great need of an earrings holder.

So today I went to Matalan with my Mum and bought a few sale items and bits and bobs (thanks to mum who paid for a lot!)...

I needed a soap dish (I know- random) just so I can take my LUSH soaps back to my room! £3

I found this top in the children's section and is a size 16 so it should fit! Was £10 Now £5

This next top is for summer and has a lovely floral print. Was £10

This sheer shirt with a peter pan collar has female deers on it and feels gorgeous! Was £14 Now £7

When I saw this jumper, I just thought of Happy Feet and fell in love! Was £20 Now £10

I bought these shoes for £10 as I want to stock up on pumps for Spring!

Lastly I bought my other half a DVD that he's been longing too watch again to relive some childhood memories, so I couldn't resist! £4.99)

Hope you enjoyed my quick haul! I know I am behind on my MUA haul and review- so sorry, I shall do it ASAP. I promise! Enjoy the rest of the week bloggers,
