New in From the Drugstore | Three Makeup Revolution Eyeliners

Hello, hello, hello! I'm going to show you some new products from Makeup Revolution today. I really apologise for how out of focus the photo is, myself and my friend who took the photos found it really difficult to focus the shiny packaging with natural daylight. Anyway, that's not going to stop me from showing you my mini Makeup Revolution haul. 

I was delighted to see three eye products in my package kindly sent to me by Makeup Revolution as I've never tried any of their liquid based liners before and I don't think you can ever have too many especially as I wear it everyday and I don't want to be running low (student problems).

A Lovely Easter Weekend

Hey guys! I don't usually write about what I've done in a weekend but seen as though its just been the Easter weekend I thought I'd write a little post about what I got up to. In my mind I didn't have much planned but it turned out I was actually really busy over the weekend and spent a lot of time with my family and old friends which was so lovely.

You can see my family are a little crazy from the above photo, my dad is modelling the Duck Costume by Smiffys who kindly sent this through for us to have a little bit of extra fun as a family this Easter. It came in a size Medium which was perfect because it managed to fit all of us (pretty much, it was a little big on myself because I'm so small). Its actually so comfortable as well which is a bonus because now I have a new addition to my onesie collection. I know this will definitely come in useful over the years to come, and perhaps even when I have my own children if it gets kept in good condition (that's a LONG way a way), I love being creative around seasonal events so this was perfect.

New In | Nouveau Lashes Haul & I'm a member of the #LashGang

I'm really excited to be writing this post after receiving my insane 'welcome pack' from Nouveau Lashes last week. I'm officially a member of their #LashGang (if you're a blogger/social influencer you can apply here!) which I'm over the moon about because I cannot get enough of false lashes. I'll always wear a pair of lashes whenever I go out, or go to a special event so you can imagine I was super excited when I opened the package and saw twelve gorgeous pairs of eyelashes to try (especially when I'm a student and definitely need to stock up). 

I hadn't heard of Nouveau Lashes until I saw a blogger (I've forgotten who, argh) write them, I went on their website and fell in love. I do wear a pair at least once or twice a week, depending on what I'm doing as I just think they complete a makeup look - especially on a night out. My go-to lashes have always been the Ardell Demi Wispies or Kiss Eyelashes in 'Iconic', I think feathered lashes always look so much more natural and not too in your face. I'm so pleased that a few of the lashes I received from Nouveau Lashes are wispy because I just think they're so pretty and suit my eye shape so much (I have quite small eyes!).

ChinUp The Non-Surgical Face Lift | Review

Hello, hello! Today I'm talking about the 'ChinUp Non-Surgical Face Lift', a face mask with the aim to lose extra weight around your chin. I've never used anything like this before as I kind of see these things as a bit of a fad but I've heard great things about various creams which tighten your skin in order to give a more toned appearance, e.g. the Nip and Fab range (which I haven't yet tried but would love to). 

The mask aims to slim, lift, contour, moisturise, age defy and firm the skin around your chin and upper neck. In my opinion, the weight around your neck and chin is really hard to lose and unfortunately unlike muscles groups we cannot target fat (I wish, I wish). I put the mask to the test the other day, and if I'm honest I'm not completely sure how I feel about the product.

10 Things I've Learnt since being at University

Hi everyone! I wanted to write a post about 10 things I've learnt since being at university, moving to university was a massive change in my life but as of right now I couldn't be happier. It feels like I've known the friends I've met forever, but really I've only been there since September. First year finishes April 20th (if you can even call it a year), which is absolutely crazy and I don't know what I'm going to do with myself for 20 weeks throughout summer - still I can't complain though.

How to be Healthy at University | Lifestyle and Fitness

Hey guys! So I'm back with an update on how to keep a healthy lifestyle at university (I say keep, I never had one in first semester). I wanted to leave this kind of post in January until about now when I'd started to actually put some of these 'tips' to the test, but I feel so much better in myself so I thought I'd share how I maintain a balanced lifestyle at uni with you. 

I'm not an expert in nutrition and science behind food - just so you know (its probably pretty obvious anyway). I would say that at the moment I have a balanced diet, I still have snacks that I shouldn't and cheat on the weekends but the biggest difference has been changing what I eat for dinner at uni and also joining a much better gym than the one in the accommodation.
