My Love for Korean Dramas #6

You guys already know I’m heavily into K-pop, I’m not sure if I’ve every really mentioned that I love K-dramas too! I love them so much I sometimes wish my life was a K-drama!

I think in all I’ve watched about 13-14, not very many but I intend on watching a lot more! I have just finished Love Rain and absolutely loved it! I really want to review it for you guys! What do you think? I want to talk more on K-pop, Dramas and Korea I’m just never really sure if you guys would enjoy it. It would be my ultimate dream to travel to Korea, and someday, I will get there. But for the moment I’ll just stick to my K-dramas, K-pop, K-food and K-skincare :P.

Let me know below, would you like to hear more about my Korean obsession and reviews? I hope so, I know I’d really enjoy doing it!

#2 My Weekend Haul

So I didn’t post last week and I have a very good explanation as to why! I had been at my parents all week as it was my birthday and I completely forgot to bring my laptop with me to post!!

But don’t worry, I used that time away from my blog to brain storm and jot down some new ideas!

So anyways, back to the post. After going out on the weekend (You can read the post here), I had a mini shopping haul at Superdrug and Tesco which I thought I would share with you all!

I’ll start with skincare first as that is pretty much the majority of my haul. I’m obsessed with skincare, even more so now I’m getting older! When I was younger (16/17) I don’t even think I moisturised! Whilst browsing Superdrug, I came across their Vitamin E range, which I honestly never even knew existed. So I decided I’d get some of the collection and came away with Their moisture boost serum, nourishing eye cream, hydrating mist, leave on moisture mask and the  night cream. I’m so excited it all! I’ve tested a few of the bits and can safely say I’m in love with the hydrating mist.

Next up I saw that Garnier had some new moisturisers that were 1/3 off. There was a choice between honey, rose water and aloe vera. I absolutely love aloe vera so I decided to give it a whirl. What persuaded me to buy it was the fact that 96% of the ingredients are of natural origin with the last 4% being for preservation. I have tried this a few times and love it.

I don’t usually buy nail polish but decided I’d make a change and start so I can practice doing my nails more. I asked my Fiance to pick a colour and he decided on this lovely coral colour from Barry M. It’s from their Coconut Infusion line and, oh my God, there were so many pretty colours! I also got a base coat/top coat as mine dried up a while ago.

The Last product I got from Superdrug was medical tape. Need I explain more? who doesn’t have tape in their make up kits? 😛

From Tesco I brought the Aloe Body Gel. I got badly sunburnt on my birthday and needed something to soothe the stinging, burning, itching and peeling and decided to give this a go as it said it moisturises calms and repairs. I  brought the one at first and took it home and I loved it so much I went out the next day to get a bottle. It is honestly the best body moisturiser I’ve ever used!!

So that’s it guys!! I hope you’ve enjoyed my mini haul!

1# My Saturday In Pictures

Hey guys! So I know it’s almost the end of the week now but I really wanted to share what I got up to last Saturday with you, I even took pictures! It was my last week and we decided to go out to Canterbury for a mini shopping trip (post coming soon) and some lunch! Overall, it was a lovely day :).

IMG_20170527_151630

First up, we popped into Superdrug whilst we waited for the people we were having lunch with to turn up, and I treated myself to a few bits. I always feel so overwhelmed when in there as there is so much to look at and choose from, I never know where to start!!

IMG_20170527_152821

I just had to take a picture of the town, it was so hot and busy! We brought a box of ice creams and stood outside Superdrug chowing down!

We were planning on going to Wok & Go for lunch as I had absolutely fallen in love with the place and had nearly filled up my loyalty card but found it had closed! We decided on Pizza hut and I definitely made the most of the free salad bar. As you can see it’s just nachos, salsa and jalapenos. But it’s called a salad bar…so it’s salad, right? I’m also a big fan of pineapple on pizza (strange thing though, I like to eat the pineapple off first so it’s essentially just a ham pizza) so I got one to myself and tried to get arty when taking the pictures. You can probably see that I couldn’t wait to take pictures and had already dug in!

Lastly, we went to see a rock band called Shameful Behaviour that my uncle was playing the bass in (far right). I went with my two sisters (Emmimori), my sisters partner and my fiance. It was such a great night and they played awesome songs!! I’d definitely see them again!

I hope you enjoyed this post! It’s a bit different to my normal kind but I wanted to show you what I get up to 🙂

Thanks for reading xoxoxoxo

7 Day Post Challenge

All these challenges are coming about quite often now and I absolutely love doing them. I love doing them so much that I decided to create my own(forgive me if this idea has already been done)!

I sat for a while trying to figure out what I could do that would actually be a challenge for me and decided that I could do a post a day for seven days, as you should all know that I’m terrible at posting regularly.

So as of tomorrow I will be posting daily for seven days and I’m going to tag Emmimori to start it too.

The rules? there are none, just have fun! All you have to do is tag another blogger to pass it on!

Happy posting!!

My Mini Cosmetic Haul

Hi guys!

Sorry for the recent inactivity, not only has it been a busy weekend I’ve also been sick with the cold!!

Not so long ago, I went out and brought a few products and figured I’d share my purchases with you 🙂 It was quite a cheap shop as I do love a bargain 🙂

DSC_0383.JPG

First up, I brought a new pair of false lashes as I seem to mislaid my favourite Eyelure pair.These only cost me 99p and look awesome! I haven’t tried them yet but when I do I’ll definitely be reviewing them.

Next up is Nailene super glue. I use this stuff all the time as I wear false nails a lot! It’s great and so handy to have, not only have I used it to glue my nails back on, I’ve also used it to fix the odd shoe or two!

Now on to the make up. I decided I’d try a brand I’ve not tried before so went for the pressed powder by Revolution. This only cost £3 so I’m super excited to try it to see how it looks.

Another product I purchased was the MUA Pro-Base. I’ve brought form MUA before, but only the odd lipstick or two (which were surprisingly good for £1!!!) so I decided I’d take the leap and buy a face product. This only cost me £3 so I’m looking forward to trying it as I was looking for something like this and was considering a more expensive alternative. It has different coloured concealers to be used to conceal different parts of your face (green for redness, orange for dark circles etc).

I brought this concealer by Revolution as it claimed to be a dupe but didn’t say or which product. When I took the lid off to see if I could guess which product, it was clear to see that it was a dupe of Benefits Fake-up so I decided that for £3, I’d snap it up straight away to see if it was any good or not. I’m really excited to see if this is a perfect dupe as then I’d only have to pay £3 instead of the usual £21!!

Last but not least, I have a mascara by Revolution called The Viper. I don’t usually buy mascaras as I’m really fussy about them so I’m curious to see how good this one is for only £2!

 

 

Nail Polish for Valentines <3

Hi all!

So my mum came to me yesterday and asked if she could borrow a nail polish for valentines day. I got out my collection and we went through it together picking out colours that would suit the occasion. We ended up with 6 different colours to choose from, so I figured I’d share them with you all!

DSC_0366

In all there were six different colours and none of them were really the same either! They ranged from pretty pinks to a smoky petrol colour.

First up is Rimmels 60 second in Princess Pink. This is a soft elegant shade of pink and suits those who like the delicate sorts of colours. It does what it says and dries fast. I was absolutely obsessed with this polish when I first got it as it was perfect to wear everyday!

DSC_0368

Next up is the same brand, but in Rapid Beauty. This is such a gorgeous and romantic shade of red and I’d say its got more of a wine shade to it. I love wearing this on nights out as I can match it to any outfit :).

DSC_0369

Next on my list  is a polish by Barry M. I absolutely love this brand and I have so many different colours! This one doesn’t actually have a name for the shade, but it’s one of the textured types. The colour may look similar to the Princess Pink by Rimmel but this shade is more pink whereas the Princess Pink has a peachy undertone to it. I love this nail polish, when I first got it, i didn’t realise I had brought a textured one so was quite shocked when it dried. But after I realised, I quite liked the look and feel of the texture to it.

Another Barry M Shade I have is called Duchess and I would have to say that it is my all-time favorite nail polish. Its the most gorgeous glittery brown colour I have ever seen and when it dried textured (it’s another from the textured effect line) it felt like I had lots of tiny gems on my nails. When I glossed it over, it was so glittery I received quite a few compliments on it. I would recommend this polish to anyone and everyone! It’s perfect for every occasion, especially Valentines day.

DSC_0372

Next up is a polish by a brand called Yes Love. I’ve never heard of this brand and I brought it when I was out in Majorca. When it is applied, glossed over and the light hits it, its the most incredible petrol colour with a hint of red. The perfect sort of colour for those who prefer darker shades. This colour doesn’t have a name, but I’d be more than happy to find out more about it if anyone would like to know 🙂

DSC_0374

Last but not least, I have a high end nail polish. This one is by Lancome, and again like the previous polish, this one doesn’t have a name but I would be more than happy to look into it if anyone would like to know. This is another shade of pink, but more of a hot pink and is absolutely lovely! It applies really well and when glossed over, looks absolutely fantastic! This colour is perfect for those who prefer bolder shades.

Much love,
