Summer Nights

Hi Guys! Oh no it feels like way too long since I last posted! Oooops!
I have had such a busy past few weeks because of school and work, but hopefully I will get back on track and start posting more regularly!

So on to this new blog post!
One of my favourite places to go when I am feeling down or just need some fresh air is Woburn Woods. I love going there and have collected some photos from the past couple of times I have adventured out there with an inspiring quote to go with each one. It is such a beautiful place and I thought that sharing the photos with you would maybe inspire you to go and explore the great outdoors!


''Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.''


''Happiness is a direction, not a place.''


''In a time of destruction, create something.''


''Everythings gunna be alright''
''Love Life''


''Happiness is like a kiss; you must share it to enjoy it''


''A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself''


''Sunset is still my favourite colour, and rainbow is my second''


Hope that brightened your day lovelies!
Now tell me, where are your favourite places?

These are a few of my favourite things...

Hello Lovelies!
I am so sorry for the delay in getting up a new blog post, just had a few technical difficulties but it's finally here, yay! 
So the blog post I am doing today is My Favourite Things Tag. I hope this helps you get to know me a little bit better.

1) My Favourite Products; Hmm this is a tricky one because I use so many products daily. My favourite make-up type product is probably my MAC concealer, it gives great coverage under those dark under eye circles. Next is probably Ted Baker hand cream, I always carry it around with me in my bag and it always stops my hands from becoming dry, especially in this cold weather. And lastly is probably nail polishes, I have a huge selection and I love them all!

2) Foods; Mash, Popcorn and Melon.

3) Places; Lykia World - A resort in Turkey! It is amazing! There is soo much to do including swimming, water sports, eating and plenty of entertainment, I love it and have been 3 times! It was lovely to go again last summer.
Next is Theoule Sur Mer Beaches on the French Riviera, If you haven't been to France, basically, you need to go! I love it! And finally my Home and especially my Bedroom.

4) Things you do when you are bored; Watch the Television, tidy up and have a clear out, and seeing friends.

5) Things you enjoy when its sunny; Walks, Water fights and ice cream! These things are what I am looking forward to this summer, I have had enough of the cold now!

6) Films; It is tricky to pick just three but I am going to go with Roman Holiday, Titanic and Dirty Dancing. But I have to say that I am particularly bias towards films with Leonardo Dicaprio in;-)

7) Brands; MAC, Disney and Coca Cola - I am a huge Disney fan! My favourite films are Aladdin, Mulan and Beauty and the Beast. 

8) Cartoons; I am going to take this tag as childhood cartoons, so I put the first three that came to my mind when I thought about my childhood. Which are The Wild Thornberrys, Rugrats, Spongebob Squarepants.

9) Influences; Okay guys, this is a big one for me and I have only picked one influence and that is Audrey Hepburn. When I was about 8 my Dad introduced me to the movie My Fair Lady and I completely fell in love with Audrey Hepburn from that moment on, I have now become a big fan of all her other work and she really has inspired me because of her films and timeless style, but not only that, she grew up during World War 2 and suffered from malnutrition and anaemia, and still came out fighting. Up until her death in 1993 Audrey was an ambassador for UNICEF, She said ''Anyone who doesn't believe in miracles is not a realist. I have seen the miracle of water which UNICEF has helped to make a reality.'' I believe that she was a truly good person, with not only being a fashion and style icon to me but also an huge inspiration for her morality and selflessness.

10) Drinks; Tea, Hot Chocolate and Cranberry juice.

11) Things to watch; Downton Abbey! The 100 and Twin Peaks

and last but not least! 

12) Youtubers; Emily-Victoria Canham, Tanya Burr and Zoella

Thanks for reading lovelies! 
I am going to try and post once a week from now on and make my blog posts as regualr as possible, let me know in the comments if there are any posts you want to see or tell me about a few of your favourite things.
Have a marvellous weekend everyone!

How much is my face worth?x

 Hey Guys!

So today I am going to see what products I use everyday on my face and how much all of it together costs. This post was suggested to me by my very lovely friend at theressomethingaboutalice.blogspot.co.uk/
I am not doing this post to show off all my make up, I find it interesting and I hope you guys will too!

So to start of I use MAC Studio Finish Concealer in the colour NW15
This comes at the price £15.50, which personally I don't feel is too bad as it gives me excellent coverage especially on my dark under-eye circles.


Next is my MAC studio fix fluid in the colour NW15. I love this foundation and I know it comes at a higher price but to me it is worth it as I feel so confident in it and I haven't found anything else that comes close it. This costs £21.50.


Another one of my everyday products is the MAC mineralize skinfinish in the colour medium deep.
This product cost me £23.00, I think this is a bit to expensive for a bronzer and I think I am going to return to some of my old favourite bronzers like the Seventeen instant glow bronzing powder that comes in at just £4.59, and I think it gives a just as good finish or even better than the MAC about a quarter of the price.


My next favourite product for everyday is the MAC sheertone shimmer blush in the colour springsheen. I absolutely LOVE this blush! I love the colour and the shimmer of it, this product costs £18.00.


Next for my eyes I normally use the shadows from my Naked 3 Pallet. This is by far my favourite make-up product as I am in love with eye-shadows! This costs £37.00 and is well worth that price! My favourite colours on this Pallet are Dust, Buzz and Mugshot.



Now onto the mascara and eye liner. My number one mascara is definitely They're Real! by Benefit! at £19.50, I would recommend to it anyone! and the Barry-M liquid eyeliner at £4.79.



So altogether my face is worth £147.29!
That is crazy! It is unbelievable how much make-up costs! I would not of have guessed that much! I guess that when you buy little bits here and there it all adds up!
I am intrigued to know how much everyone else's face's are worth!??
