Face Masks

I know I haven't done a post in a long time, well just over a week, but it's christmas and I've been very busy with family and school so I will let myself off. Anyway, I have recently just bought a face mask from lush as I really wanted to try one out to see if it would help my skin at all. I had a look at them all and, the one I liked the sound of the most was, cupcake, which is a chocolate face mask, it says it is great for younger skin and those with oily or spotty skin.

I have only used this face mask 2 times at the moment, but I love it already. It left my face feeling really nice and cleansed afterwards. I think it really helped with some oilyness of my skin, It helped dry out my spots and left my skin feeling smooth afterwards.

This is definitely something to remember as in the shop I was asked on different occasions what my skin type was as they have had people by it just because it is chocolate, not knowing it can really dry your skin out if you have dry skin already.

The face mask is made from all natural ingredients which to start off with I did not like as it means the face mask itself is quite bitty, and found it hard to apply the first time, however this does not hold the product back as I love it regardless, I think it smells amazing and it is really easy to wash off with no mess at all. I will definitely be purchasing this again when It runs out.

Leave any comments telling me your opinions on face masks.

Merry Christmas. xxx

18th Cupacke BirthdayDay Party!!

My birthday is boxing day,and as you can imagine it is quite awkward to celebrate around then with my friends as people have family things, so I decided to celebrate my 18th this weekend. This post is just a photo blog of all the fun we had this weekend. I had a very small get together with 15 of us, I had a sleepover and tea party on Saturday evening, taking it back to child times with kids party food, party bags, and of course all tinker bell themed. Then Sunday lunch time, I had a cupcake workshop, where we each got to make and learn how to decorate 6 cupcakes each.

It was so much fun and and I love all the presents I got, I wasn't expecting anyone to get me something, but it's nice that people bother. These included a scarf, a scaffold earring, a little trinket dish, a mac eye shadow, and of course chocolates.

Saturdays Party!

OOTD - Christmas Fun!

It is now only 14 Days, yes 2 weeks until Christmas so I thought it was definitely acceptable to bring out my new Christmas skirt and create a little outfit for this, So why not share it with everyone else. On a side note, 14 days till Christmas, 15 days till I'm 18!!!!!

There is not much writing to this post, apart from, I fell in love with this cute burgundy knitted Christmas skirt, It has a very cute reindeer and fairailse pattern on it, and for only £8 in primark I thought why not. It was surprisingly warm considering I wore only skin coloured tights underneath. I then tucked in a plain white vest top, and put on my cream spotty blazer from H&M, I love this blazer as it is a neutral colour and can be paired with most things to finish off the perfect outfit. I will however say, I am going to purchase either a cream or burgundy vest top, as I did feel the white looked slightly odd, but I had no other choice this morning.

I apologise for the bad quality photo's now.

Christmas Favourites

It is now officially December and that only means one thing, It's Christmas very very soon. I am someone that gets very excited for Christmas as soon as the 1st of December is here, I mainly blame my mum as she loves it just as much as me. As Christmas is coming and lots of you will be putting up decorations and what not soon, I thought id share some of my Christmas favourites and decoration ideas.

For beauty, my favourite things to wear this Christmas are 2 lipsticks and of course a nail varnish. For winter my favourite colours are deep plum/purple and burgundy, so of course. One of the lipsticks that I love at the moment is from collection 2000, and is only £2.99 .The second is from mac in the colour cyber which is a really deep plum colour, this is £15. Second which is great for this festive time is nail varnish, it just tops of your whole look and of course you can not have Christmas without sparkle so I am loving this gold glitter top coat from 17 which was £3.99.

Now you can not have Christmas without the amazing Christmas jumpers and t-shirts that are out this year. There are lots of great ones to chose from and I will probably be purchasing more, but at the moment my two favourite that I own are both from primark, One is a jumper that says 'I love Santa', the second is a top with a reindeer on and of course more sequins and bells too.

Last but not least is the home!!! which means lots of decorations and trees and lights and EVERYTHING. (yes I am excited). One of my most favourite things which I have decorated my room and the conservatory with is Christmas paper chains, I got these from believe it or not pound land and they are great. Finally are the trees and lights, you can not have Christmas without the sparkly lights on a Christmas tree, being lucky enough to have the space in our house we end up with 5 tress, all fake but decorated lovely, So ill share with you some pictures of those and the best decorations on them, one of those being our 2013 ball ball from Harrods. 

Hope this makes you feel all Christmas festive, leave a comment sharing what your favourite Christmas things are. xxx

Super Hero Fancy Dress

This weekends adventure includes a fancy dress birthday party, the theme is super hero's and villain's so that leaves me with a lot of choice. As it is close to Christmas and do not have much money to spend, I wanted a great character but with not having to spend too much money, I also didn't want to be a typical or well known character as a lot of people would think of that. So for my costume I decided to go with Hit girl from the Kickass films. I decided to share this all with everyone to help anyone else who may have a fancy dress party and give you any ideas.

Most of the costume is very simple but some of it is handmade, this is thanks to my mum as she likes a little sewing now and then. Alot of the things I had already so didn't need to spend much. Her main colours are purple and I stuck close to the original outfit as much as I could. The clothes I'm wearing are:

- Primark - purple footless tights
- Black lace Tutu £5 - Picked up from a little stall but could find them in a lot of cheap shops
- Tartan skirt - £2 for half metre of material - hand made
- Pink belt - hand made from ribbon
- Primark - Purple long sleeve top
- Black cape - hand made
- Dr.marten boots - Already had these, Definitely did not go out and buy this specially

Usually hit girl wears a black mask across her eyes, but I didn't really want to do that so I did my make-up all nice instead. I also wanted to dye my hair purple anyway so this added to costume anyway. I'm not going to go through all of the products, but I will say some of the main ones with there colours. 

- MUA eye shadow in purple blended with a black from the outer corner
- ELF cream eyeliner black

Lips - Mac lipstick in the colour cyber

Hope you enjoyed this fun little post, I'm really happy with how the outfit turned out. Leave any comments on your opinion, would really appreciate it (: xxx
