Forever 21 jewellery haul

Hello lovelies! Now yes I have another haul for you lovely lot today but it literally just consists of jewellery after I went a little crazy in forever 21 after realizing the rings fit me, yay! At the forever 21 I go to all the rings are one size so I've been a little scared to try them on in case they're way too small for my fingers and I end up with it stuck on my finger. I decided to take the plunge and try one on and it was the perfect fit, lucky me. So I couldn't help but buy a few and a few pairs of earrings and a necklace... I seem to be a bit shopping crazy at the moment and if I'm not shopping in store I'm buying online, a little bit naughty but everyone deserves a treat every now and then, right? Plus I've been quite (by quite I mean very) stressed recently, due to exams and all that boring stuff I'd prefer not to speak of right now.

They were just a few photos of how pretty the jewellery in forever 21 is. Now for what I actually purchased.

Necklace - £2.40
Gold horse shoe ring - £2.40
Three rings set - £3.15
Crystal silver earrings - £3.90
Earrings three packs - £3.40
Rings - £3.40
Triangle earrings -£3.15

Some of the prices aren't very accurate I am doing it from memory, sorry.
So I went back to forever 21 again to have a little browse and ended up spending £30 on jewellery! Whoops. Okay it could've been worse, I did manage to leave a few things but obviously not enough. I didn't intend on buying anything but it just happened. Anyway I am quite content with my purchases. I got some lovely little bits and all at a decent price. I will definitely have to restrain myself from going back to forever 21 for a little while at least.....

Liebster award

Hello lovelies!
Today I discovered that the lovely Katy had nominated me for the liebster award, so here it is!

Now I shall get on with the 11 facts, which are surprisingly difficult to think of but here they are:
1. I know vanilla cokes only just come back to the UK but I already have a slight addiction to it!
2. My favourite food is chocolate and oreos. Can you tell what a healthy diet I have?
3. One of my favourite films is parent trap, I'll never get too old for that film! I still haven't tried oreos in peanut butter but I am determined to try!
4. I'm very easily distracted, which is really annoying when I'm trying to work.
5. Topshop is one of my favourite shops.
6. I love spring because it is a perfect excuse to wear pastel colours as much as possible.
7. I think I might have a slight shopping addiction, I'm always on clothing websites lusting over new clothes, a tad sad I know, but a girl can dream.
8. The first album I bought was atomic kitten!
9. At the moment I am obsessed with Bastille and Nina Nesbitt, if you haven't heard any of their music, you need to!
10. I'm a total girly girl, if its pink I'll buy it.
11. The last one has to be special but I can't think of any amazing revelations, so it ended up being something completely random but I am a hoarder, I'm not as extreme as the ones you see on the telly that keep literally everything but I am quite bad. I hate getting rid of things!

1. Are you a winter or a summer person?
I'm not sure, is that weird. I love summer because I like warm weather and summery colours. However trends tend to be better in the winter. But I would probably say summer!
2. Salad or Pizza?
Pizza, definitely. I don't like vegetables, in a salad I will only have cucumber and lettuce, I don't like anything else. I am a very fussy eater.
3. What is your dream job?
Now this changes a lot but I am sure that it would be something fashion related. I do have three dream job choices which are a fashion buyer, a stylist or a fashion journalist. One that's slightly un-fashion related is that I'd love to be a photographer, I say slightly because you could be a fashion photographer which I'd also love. Ultimately I would love to own my own shop, where I could buy the clothes, style the photo shoots and be the photographer.
4. Favourite perfume?
'Viva la juicy' by juicy couture or Ralph Lauren '4'.
5. Favourite place you have ever visited?
This is quite a tricky question, I love so many places, I would probably say Florida, I'm a little bit of a disney fan and when I was younger like most children I loved disney so I would have to say Florida because I had an amazing time there!
6. If you could have dinner with anyone (present or past!), who would it be?
Again such a hard question, I'm going to name a few people, it doesn't say just one, that would be too hard to choose. I love Marilyn Monroe she is stunning and just amazing and Audrey Hepburn, they are style icons! Then I love Bastille, he is just amazing! I know I'm overusing the word amazing but these people just are amazing. Nina Nesbitt she is beautiful and so is her voice. I would also invite Olly Murs, a beautiful human being once again. There's too many, I couldn't choose! My dinners turning into a bit of a dinner party! A few other names I'm just going to chuck in before I bore you all: George Orwell, Albert Einstein, Mila Kunis, Joe Swash like I said way too many!
7. What is your most prized possession?
These questions are too hard! My immediate answer was phone- how materialistic. But then I let myself do a little thinking and I would probably say my memory book, I have photos, tickets, everything you could shove into a book!
8. What skincare product can't you live without?
I'm really rubbish at skincare, I've stopped moisturizing to at  the moment because I got a new moisturizer and I started getting a few spots so I stopped using it. I'm quite lucky in the sense that I don't really get spots but this gave me quite a few.
9. Favourite video game if any?
I don't really play any video games but I do love love love the sims if that even counts.
10. Most embarrassing moment?
Wow there is honestly too many. I am easily embarrassed so there's a whole library of embarrassing moments in my life its too hard to choose one! Anything to do with speeches, presentations, all that kind of stuff. I go as red as strawberry, I speak really quietly and don't take my eyes off the floor, I just find them humiliating.
11. Do you like cats?

Yes, I actually have a cat.

My 11 questions
1. Your favourite make up product ever!
2. What's your favourite song?
3. Favourite fashion trend?
4. Who is your fashion icon?
5. Favourite things to do?
6. Favourite food?
7. Do you have any phobias?
8. What is your biggest pet peeve?
9. Where would you love to go?
10. What's your favourite thing about blogging?
11. What's your dream job?

Everyday make up storage

Hello lovelies! You might have seen my recent haul in which I purchased a little make up organiser for a very reasonable eight pounds! I thought I would show you how I am using it and so on.

I have stored quite a bit in it. It has two little compartments at the back which aren't very visible. Then there is a large one at the front which I have put my foundation, concealer, etc in. Then there are twelve little ones which I presume are for lipsticks but I had no more room at the back so I put my Benefit They're Real mascara in there and my mini sample from Elle magazine, which if you haven't already you really should get.
It's really handy to have and everything is so organised now rather than being a total cluttered mess with everything flung across my dresser. Plus it helps me only have the stuff I will use daily there, rather than those and lots of other products I use every now and then spread across my dresser too! If you're looking to organise your make up defintely buy one of these they're so handy and have a decent price tag!

April favourites

Hello, this is a slightly delayed April favourites post seen as we are a few days into May now. Is it just me or has this year gone super fast. I'm not one for monthly favourite posts, I don't change my make up a lot I tend to stick to the stuff I have. Well, I say that but I do change quite a few things but just not monthly so it wouldn't make a very good read if the favourites are the same every time. 

Models Own Nail Polishes: Fuzzy Peach, Luis Lemon & Pink Punch
I'm obsessed with neon nails this summer, especially yellow so I picked up these two models own ones which were in my haul, click here if you haven't read it and would like to. Well anyway I fancied getting the pink too and then they were 3 for 2 and I was after a peachy colour so I got fuzzy peach. They're all £5 each. I love the neon colours I have worn both and they dry really quickly. Plus they're matte nail polishes and they feel super nice when they're dry. If your liking neon nails right now, then definitely try the models own ones out.

Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy: 200 Orbit & 230 Satellite
Again these were both in my haul and these were £7.99 each. I wore the black one this weekend and it is so cute. Again it dries super fast; I get bored when I am waiting for my nails to dry and tend to get distracted easily, which leads to them smudging and being an absolute mess. I love how fast they dry which is making me extremely tempted to buy some more Revlon nail polishes. As soon as I finished my hand I waited for less than a minute and they were dry. The glittery bits look very cute too!

Revlon Lip Butter: Juicy Papaya
Again this was featured in my haul and I have also done a review that if you haven't read now you can if you click here. Wow, I have done a lot of links today. Anyway I don't want to right too much about this for those of you who have read my review, as you may find this tedious and boring. Straight to the point, it's a beautiful colour and its just amazing.

Benefit's They're Real Mascara
I don't know if this really counts as an April favourite considering I've only just started to use it in May but it's on here now. I also got a mini one free today with Elle magazine so if you don't want to splurge and buy this you can try it out first. They also sell mini ones in boots for £9.50 if you can't find Elle. Anyway enough with all the availability. It is a phenomenal (wow, big word.) mascara. It is very lengthening and volumising but it can get a little bit clumpy sometimes but other times its perfect. But I just brush through them with another mascara wand or an eyebrow brush, strange huh? I am planning to do a full review of this mascara so watch out if you're interested.

Seventeen Doll'd Up Mascara  
Now I have also reviewed this before so there is a link here. So again I don't want to be too boring and repeat the same things to you all. I know I got this towards the end of March but I've been loving it in April too! Anyway its really good, I personally like it a lot, not as much as the Benefit one but it is pretty close and considering it is about a third of the price, I will be repurchasing. 

Real Techniques Brushes: Contour & Detailer
These were featured in my haul that I posted yesterday, click here. I love the detailer for concealer and it is the perfect size to apply concealer. Plus it is super soft and feels lovely on your skin. I like all the brushes in the collection but these are the two I seem to get the most use out of.

Sorry for the link overload.

What have you loved in April?

Little tiny haul

Hello! This is a tiny haul, it's only three things from amazon but I thought I should share it with you anyway. I got this last week and had been wanting these things for quite a while, so I was just a little excited when it arrived... I had to take photos right away because I was excited to use them! I've also recently purchased Benefits they're real mascara, finally! I haven't taken a picture but it was £19.50 from Debenhams, it was actually 10% off the day I got it so I only paid £17.55 not a lot of difference but it's better than no discount, right? I'm not entirely sure, but I thought this mascara was £18.50? Enough with the mascara talk this isn't even in the haul! Well, I guess it kind of is now... If you would like me to do a review then let me know, I'm not sure whether to or not because I'm sure a lot of you have read reviews about it. 

The fault in our stars by John Green - £3.85
Acrylic make up holder - £8
Real techniques brushes core collection - £14.66

I've been wanting to buy the fault in our stars for quite a while now, everyone seems to be obsessing over how good it is, so for just £3.85 I thought I'd give it a read.
I've also been wanting an acrylic make up holder to help tidy up my everyday make up. The make up I don't wear so often is all set out reasonably nicely in designated draws but the make up I wear everyday is scattered all over the table. So I thought this would be useful to help tidy things up and keep them together all neatly. I love it, my table looks so much neater now!
Lastly is the real techniques brushes core collection, now I must admit I don't usually buy brushes, I buy the odd few that I need and use the rest from make up gift sets. I've just never been that bothered about buying any but some of them are getting a bit rough and bristles keep falling out, all that kind of stuff. So I though I'd invest in some decent brushes and everyone raves about the real technique brushes and obviously brushes isn't my forte subject so I went along with the hype. It was these or mac brushes and if I'm entirely honest I don't really want to be paying out £20 for a brush when people are saying these are just as good. So far I like them they're really soft and easy to use. The core collection is £20 in boots so I got them for £5 cheaper on amazon and they sell all the brushes, if you're interested.

Have you picked up anything good lately?
