End of an Era...

The very best friends a girl could ask for... Flashback to being freshers

Today is the day that my friends, and in a way myself, move out of the house that we have shared for the past 2 years while at University. Despite having actually moved out a year ago when my university adventure came to an end, I have spent most of spare time in Belfast, partying with my friends while they carried out their final year. Unfortunately, they have now finished, and all I can say is that this is the end of an era. I am in the middle of making a University years photo album, so I thought I would share some of the photos with you all. Quick warning... this is going to be a picture heavy post.

Review: Nkd Skn Dark Tinted Tan Liquid

As someone who hates being so pale I am always on the lookout for a new fake tan that won't make me look orange. Over the years I have found a few fake tans that I like but I am yet to find a holy-grail product. Also I am currently on a budget so I'm not exactly able to go spend £30 on a fake tan, so when I saw the new Nkd Skn range in Superdrug and noticed how cheap it was I decided to give it a try.

The Lip Product Addict Tag

I was recently tagged by Aisling from Rosy Smiles to do the Lip Product Addict Tag! I thought this would be a really fun tag since I am a self-confessed lipstick addict! So here goes...

1. Favourite balm/treatment?
For years my go-to balm was vaseline, but a year ago I finally discovered the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream and I have loved using it on my lips every night right before bed!

#HaveYouDiscovered | Eyeliner

We are now just over half way through the #HaveYouDiscovered challenge, and this weeks topic is eyeliners. Now I haven't wore eyeliner a lot recently, so I did have to go searching through my drawers to see if I even still owned these products, but luckily I still have my two favourite eyeliners (though they are so dried out they need to go into the bin). I tried to decide on a favourite between the two, but since they are both different types of eyeliner (one gel, one liquid) I figured it wouldn't be cheating if I showed you them both!

#LTADARESU: Healthy Living Challenge

Back in January I put up a post detailing my goals for the year, and one of these was to lead a healthier life. I wish I could turn around now and say that I have been succeeding in this, but unfortunately we are now almost 5 months in to the year, and I am more unhealthy than ever. So when Antoinette from Letters to Antoinette put up a post about healthy living, and a challenge she was starting, I knew I had to get involved!

Exciting Changes...

Today's post is an exciting announcement... if you look at the address bar you might notice something has changed. It is no longer '.blogspot.com'. Yes thats right, I now have a custom domain!

I have been thinking about buying a custom domain for quite some time now, but always put it off. Last night I decided to look into how much it would cost, and I was surprised by how cheap it actually was! I bought my domain from Godaddy.com and it only cost me £2.99 for my '.co.uk' address, which I'm sure you will all agree is a bargain!

360 Bar, Trafford Centre

When I was in England there was one place I knew I had to take a trip to... the Trafford Centre in Manchester. The Trafford Centre is one of my favourite shopping centres and I haven't been in a few years so the day before the wedding my Mum and I woke up early and caught the bus to the centre. After a few hours of shopping (keep an eye out for a haul) we thought it was time for a break. I had remembered seeing something about a champagne bar, so off I went in search of the champagne.

#HaveYouDiscovered | Brow Tools

When I saw the topic for this weeks 'Have You Discovered' I wasn't sure if I was going to do it, as I really don't have a favourite brow tool and I am constantly on the look out for new ways to make them look half decent. However since I have missed the last 2 topics, I decided that I would do it anyway. So instead of showing you my favourite brow tool, I am just going to show you all of the products I use to do my brows, as while I am not 100% happy with my brows, I still think everything I use does help to make them look better.

Jacquard and Pearls

Last week I was in England to attend my cousins wedding and I had told myself that if the weather was good, it would be the perfect opportunity to do my first OOTD post. So, when I woke up to find the sun shining, I made sure I was dressed with plenty of time to spare so that I could take the photos (OK... I got my sister to take them). Quite nerve wracking when I had my cousins and family watching me wondering what I was doing, but I got through it!

Review: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 'Boheme'

When I bought my Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation (review here) I decided that despite being broke, I would treat myself to a new lipstick. Being in a rush however meant that I didn't have the time to browser through them all, so instead I asked for the counter girl's advice. Instantly she showed me a Rouge Coco Shine lipstick in Boheme and as soon as I swatched it I fell in love and decided I had to have it.

A Very Nosey Beauty Tag

I was recently tagged by Aisling @Rosy Smiles to do the Very Nosey Beauty Tag, which is a really fun tag all about one of my favourite topics- beauty!

Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners and lip products or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?
Easy... all of my palettes and eyeshadows. I don't wear eyeshadow all that often anymore but I wear lipstick pretty much every single day so I think if I was to lose them all I would cry. Not that I wouldn't get upset if I lost my palettes, especially as I have some that you can get any more, but I just wouldn't be quite as sad.

Current Favourites #004

It is crazy to think that the year is already 1/3 over. It doesn't seem like it has been 4 months since I saw in the new year! April has been a quiet month for me and I haven't really been all that adventurous with my beauty choices, so this is going to be quite a short favourites post, but as I really do love the following products (and tv program) I thought I would do it anyway!

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet
Ok, so if you follow me in twitter then this will probably not come as a surprise. I bought this foundation just after it came out and I haven't really shut up about it since. If I am going to be honest, I probably won't be shutting up about it any time in the near future either. I have recently posted a review on this so if you want to know more about it, read it here.

Review: Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation

When I heard that Chanel where releasing a new foundation, I knew I had to try it, especially as I was running out of my Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation. So last Sunday when I was in Belfast I went straight to the Chanel counter in Debenhams. I was even a good girl, and had it applied and then wore it while shopping to give me a better idea of if I would like it before buying it.
