November favourites!


20121203-170410.jpg

With the wedding almost here, I’ve been rocking the ‘no make up’ look to ensure my skin stays clear and that we stay like friends until the big day! Because you can’t cheat a massive zit the size of Everest on your forehead! However, when I have been wearing make up, these are my favourites from last month!

By the way.. I’VE BEEN LOVING EYESHADOW! I’ve been experimenting with different colours and textures a lot this month and have been rocking dark and bright lips too!! Go me! Woo!

The first favourite has to be the L’oreal Lumi Magique primer! This is a lightweight luminescent primer which has an amazing shine! I must say I don’t think it makes my make up last longer but when I wear it beneath my foundation around the centre of my face and when I use it as a highlighter it looks fantastic and lasts all day! It’s a really good size as I’ve had it for months and used it loads and still hasn’t died on me!

L’oreal Lumi Magique Primer £9.99

The next big thing for me has been mascara which I think is a staple for most women! When you have those days when you don’t want to wear make up but don’t want to look like you’ve rolled out of bed, mascara is your saviour! My favourite has been Collections Super Size Fake Lash which is brilliant! I have to say, I bought this towards the summer time and opened it so that the liquid would dry out a little because it was too runny! But, now I love it! The brush is a perfect size and I love the way it makes my lashes look! Doesn’t break the bank either.. TRIPLE BONUS!

Collection SuperSize lash £2.99

Another good one for November was my Deluxe Crease Brush from Samantha Chapman’s Real Techniques range! It’s fantastic for concealer! Perhaps not so much for the crease as the name suggests! It’s the perfect size for underneath your eyes and to cover up blemishes and is just the correct thickness! It comes in a set with other brushes which are fairly decent.. But that’s a whole mother blog post! All in all, SUPERB!

Real Techniques Starter Set £21.99

In coalition with the brush is the Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer which I featured in a haul past back in summer! The pot comes with a three step system!
1.) Concealer for brightening under eye area
2.) Concealer for your face
3.) A translucent lightweight powder!
I always mix the two concealers together because the salmon coloured one is almost like a corrector! The brightening one is the perfect shade! They are quite thick and creamy concealers but feel fantastic and used with the Deluxe Crease Brush, they last all day!

Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer in medium £10.00

The next favourite has to be a lipstick! And not only that but a MAC lipstick! I love this colour called Dubonnet which is an amplified finish which I think is perfect for the winter! It’s not quite a brown, not red but isn’t maroon either! It looks gorgeous on any skin tone and I love it more than anything else this month! The texture is so creamy and it wears off beautifully too! No crusty lips for me thanks!

MAC Dubonnet (amplified finish) £12.60

When I have been wearing foundation it’s MAC MatchMaster which I use in shade 1.0 (the lightest shade). It’s a fantastic medium coverage foundation which is most definitely build able! I love using this because it actually matches in with your skin colour (as the name suggests). It’s lovely and brightening, not drying and comes in a massive bottle! Hooray for MAC!!

MAC MatchMaster foundation in shade 1.0 £22.50

As I mentioned, I’ve been loving the eye bling and there’s no other thing is turn to other than my Sleek make up palettes! I’ve loved using every single colour in this palette called Storm! I’ve created looks for day and night from this handy little bundle of joy! It has a lot of shimmers in it but the colours are fantastic! They are extremely pigmented and the palette costs just £7.99 for a palette with 12 colours in! You can use the colours for your brows too!

My adventures in Paris!


So after a restless night as I am ill, I woke up in the morning to the beautiful British sun shining on my face! It’s time to go PARIS!!!!

20121015-174522.jpg

I had already packed the night before and all I had to do was get myself ready! So after Miss A. arrived, off I went to the airport and we boarded the plane!!

20121015-174537.jpg

It was such a short plane journey (they’re the best ones) and we had such a laugh in the plane, planning all the stuff we wanted to do and see!

20121015-174808.jpg

When we got to the airport and saw the rain, we knew exactly what we were in for during the weekend! However, it looked so much like London it was like being home! Home from another home.. PERFECT!!

20121015-175232.jpg

However, then we started driving and heading towards our hotel and I was soon proven wrong! France is exactly how it looks like in pictures! It’s so vintage and classy and.. FRENCH! It was brilliant!

The weather perked up and we decided to freshen up and head to a nice little restaurant (brasserie ;) ) where we ate some lovely food and off we went for an evening of adventures!

20121015-180219.jpg

What can I say about the Eiffel Tower at night other than WOW! I was in awe at the size and structure of it! It was amazing! I even managed to see it in all it’s glory with the lights on!

20121015-174607.jpg

It’s easy to say that at this point during the night an having been on our feet for 14 hours, we were shattered and so we had perhaps the BEST hot chocolate we’ve ever had from a nearby cafe and headed off home for a lovely hot shower!

20121015-174627.jpg

After a lovely nights sleep we then woke up and left the hotel for a VERY RAINY Paris! It was still pretty even in the rain, unusually enough! We ate a yummy breakfast at a brasserie called Saint Augustin and we left for Opera!

20121015-174659.jpg

After we reached Opera, we saw there were NO shops open on a Sunday! My clothes, head and feet were soaking wet at this point and I wanted nothing more than a nice dry pair of shoes and a cup of tea! Miss A. and I then headed to Champs-Élysées where the magic happened!!!!

20121015-174730.jpg

There was some amazing shops down that stretch of road and we got all of shopping from there because it was so amazing! I’ll have to do a whole post on the things I got because they were amazing!!

20121015-174740.jpg

The train journeys and the metro held the best times for me and my cousin! It was so funny to sit in the train and we were laughing about everything! We came to realise that everything in French sounded so much better! However, why are there door handles on the trains??? They’re not automatic :O that’s crazy to me!

20121015-174757.jpg

All in all, France was AMAZING FUN! We had so much fun and saw everything that we wanted to see! French people are so classy and they’re all so fit! They’re very active and it’s definitely the city of love! I couldn’t put a number on the amount of kissing I saw!

Enjoy some snaps from my journey whilst I rest up from my crazy weekend! I loved spending time with the wonderful Miss A! She was the best person to spend time with!!! I LOVE YOU BILLIONS!!!

20121015-180052.jpg

Thank you for having me Paris!

20121015-174643.jpg

P.S. Look at what my dad had waiting for me on the way back home! He’s so sweet!

September non/ beauty favourites


So I recently done my beauty favourites of September and thought I’d stir the waters by doing a non beauty favourites post!!! All about the things I like or have enjoyed doing during the month is August!

Lets start with.. SURPRISES!!! So as some of you may have read, I had a lovely cousin of mine come round and seen as ill be moving away soon after getting married, I wanted to make her stay special! I loved giving her surprises throughout the day and seeing her reaction on the things I had planned! I done a double whammy by surprising my mum along with her though :) surprising people with gifts, favours or good is definitely a favourite of mine that I will continue to do!

20121003-194014.jpg

Favourite place of the month has to go to the Millennium Dome! It’s now Valle the o2 Arena but was built in the year 2000 as a mark of the new millennium! It took years to build and is right on the edge of the River Thames in Central London! I am from London, live in London and LOVE London but had never been! So I had such a good time when I went there for the first time last week! I loved the rather, atmosphere and the beautiful scenery! If you live in the UK, definitely check out all the offers that are available for the shows in the o2 because its definitely worth it.

20121003-193922.jpg

Next has to be a favourite food! What have I loved eating??? Has to be donuts! I’ve got an obsession with them! I’ve loved munching through the icing and sprinkles to a chewy soft centre! In fact, ill be doing a blog post on how to make your own donuts soon!

20121003-193842.jpg

The next favourite is a piece of clothing! For me, this has to be the new flatforms that have come into fashion recently! I recently bought a pair from River Island and will be purchasing more as time goes on because they are SO comfy! Just be careful, because of their shape, they can hurt the ball of your foot if you stand for too long!

20121003-193935.jpg

Next favourite.. I don’t a blog post on it too! GLASSES AND HIJAB! I’ve loved this new look and I’m SOOOOO going to be wearing this to death this winter! If like me, the prescription of your lenses is quite high and your glasses make your eyes look small, order some clear lens glasses and wear with contacts for a bold fashion statement! ASOS have some great pairs that I’ve bought recently!

20121003-193928.jpg

Last but not least, my favourite interior decorating item is candles! The colder months have arrived and there’s nothing I love more than lighting a massive candle and eating some yummy good! I’m loving angle ornaments too! This tea light holder I got from TK Maxx and I would recommend keeping your eyes peeled with their products because I’ve been visiting there more and more often!

September favourites


Of course! As always I love to share my monthly favourites! September seemed like the longest month of the whole year which was really good because for once, it wasn’t too cloudy and wet in good old London!

I’m looking forward to autumn though! And seen as i’ll be wedding planning throughout the colder months, I’m not worried about the weather! I’m rather excited about spending the last few months in London with people who I care about and who make me happy :)

The first beauty favourite of the month has to be Smashbox Tinted moisturiser! I bought this recently and I know I haven’t used it ALL month but I LOVE IT! It’s the perfect amount of coverage and because it is a moisturiser it’s a double whammy! The only downside, it broke me out! So I have to use a primer under this to protect my skin! Have no idea why it broke me out but it was definitely this because I have tried nothing else new on my skin. It leaves a dewy and glowy look to the skin but doesn’t look like you’ve been licked by a dog! It’s just right :)

20121002-183045.jpg
SmashBox sheer focus tinted moisturiser in Light £19.50

The next favourite has to be Carmex lip balm! The first thing that is effected by the cold weather is my lips! They get dry very easily and during the start of the year, I had really bad chapped lips! I asked everyone on FaceBook how I could resolve the issue and I got LOADS of suggestions by lots of lovely people! When I’m not scrubbing my lips with a toothbrush or exfoliating my lips with sugar, Carmex has been doing the job! Lovely!

20121002-183059.jpg
Carmex Lip Balm in Cherry £2.69

The next favourite is actually a beauty tool! My favourite brush this month has to be the Real Techniques Blush brush which I think is the most versatile brush! You can use for it blush, bronzer but my favourite use for it is powder! Using this with my Rimmel Stay Matte powder has changed the way my skin looks! It creates a flawless look but doesn’t look cakey or flakey because the brush bristles are so soft and not too dense! LOVE IT!

20121002-183049.jpg
Real Techniques Blush Brush £9.99 and Rimmel Stay Matte powder in Translucent £3.99

I’m loving the Au Naturel palette by Sleek Make Up too!!! It’s AMAZING!!!! I’ve raved about it a few times but now I’m hitting pan on half the colours, so I’m going to miss it when it’s finished! I love mixing the top 4 middle shades for a neutral base and then blending a bit of the darker colours in the crease! Perfect every day eye look! The black I use as liner and for my brows sometimes! I’m not over keen on the shimmery colours if I’m honest just because its a bit over-done for what I like but I love this palette! Just be careful with the black cause it has MAJOR fall out! And it’s so pigmented that its hard to wipe off! It’s a curse and a blessing!

20121002-183055.jpg
Sleek Make up Au Naturel palette £7.99

For my lips I’ve got a combination to die for! I’ve not been a keen user of lip gloss and again, I think lip gloss can look quite over done sometimes but I love this Jelly Pong Pong lip frosting that I got in a GlossyBox! It’s a lovely pink colour and is SO moisturising! I first discovered lipgloss was when my lips got dry and I had to apply lip balm and I always wear lipstick so it always created a dewy lip! One day I thought.. SOD IT! Im going to start using my thousands of lip glosses! And so I did! If Jelly Pong Pong is hard to get, I recommend investing a hot pink sheer lipstick! It looks great over almost EVERY colour and glosses are so moisturising and easy to top up! You can also use JPP on your cheeks.. BONUS! The Jelly Pong Pong smells AMAZING too!

20121002-183105.jpg
Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting £10

The last product is the calming cream by MONU! You guys know I love the revitalising cream but this is also fantastic! It’s green so reduces redness but once again, MONU have cracked it by making a lightweight and easy to use face cream! It’s a lovely base moisturiser and I think it’s good even if you don’t want to reduce redness (my face is very yellow toned)! Fantastic cream and its so nourishing when I use it as a night cream, my skin thanks me for it!

20121002-183110.jpg
MONU calming cream £9.28

Stay tuned for my non-beauty favourites tomorrow :)

Sorry!


I know I’ve been MIA in the blogging world lately and it’s because I’ve been so busy!!!

I work in a phone shop so with the release of the iPhone 5 soon and the fact we have 2 staff members on holiday, I’ve been really busy at work where I’m doing the most rubbish hours!

When I’ve been coming home, I’ve been re-organising all my belongings and trying to put everything in a safe and secure place! It wasn’t really messy before but I’m finding a box and keeping the stuff I use more regularly in a proper place!

I got I’ll recently due to stress and being a little over-worked! My head was always so fuzzy and full of thoughts that I mess that I needed to at least make my room my haven and a place to relax!

LOOK AT ALL THE MESS I’VE MADE BY CLEARING UP???

20120918-224230.jpg

I’ll be cleaning my room for the next 2 days after work however, expect a blog post on Friday and I’ll be blogging all day on Saturday about the adventures I get up to! I got lots planned!

Keep up to date with my twitter @inherbubble and my Facebook!

Hope your guys are having a lovely week!

BLOGGING DAY #6


The end of the day is here and it’s been lovely today! I really like blogging like this because when I look over it, it reminds me of the lovely things I did!

Little things people take for granted a lot! Today when I woke up and the sun was shining, I went straight into my garden and just sat in the sun for half an hour before enjoying an amazing breakfast!

20120909-222835.jpg

Watching the movie! I had Tania (my little qu’ran student), over watching it with me! We had a lot of fun watching the movie and playing games too! Look at some of the stuff we made with yarn!

20120909-223110.jpg

As well as that, I got to do some pampering too! I love pulling out my facial masks, creams and lotions and potions to treat myself at the end of the week! (No, I don’t use ALL of this stuff, LOL).
