Essentially Sleek Review

Image
Who doesn't love a good bargain? I know I do. When that bargain is on make up it makes me even happier. So when I saw boots were giving away a gift when you spend over £12 on Sleek make up I was all over it.
I bought the Cleopatra's Kiss Highlighting Palette which I have wanted since I saw Rachel from Rachel Leary use it in one of her videos and it gave her such an amazing glow. I also bought the VIP Lipstick in Dream Decade which is the most amazing pink I love it.
The free gift was the Essentially Sleek collection, which has the VIP lipstick in Show off, Dip It Eyeliner in Black and a mini All Night Long i-Divine Palette.
So confession time, before this purchase I had never used Sleek make up before. So this review will be a totally honest first impression. 
I normally have a very bad time with lipsticks, I am a lip licker, I am always licking my lips so I can never find a lipstick that stays on. Sadly the VIP lipstick is no different, I found the colour lasted about 2ish hour…

What Makes Us Beautiful

''Beauty is in the eye of the beholder''
Now I am no genius but to me this saying basically means that beauty is what your eye sees. So why is it then whenever I open a magazine, log onto my Instagram or turn on the tv all I see is '' Who wore it better'', ''Who gained weight'', ''Who's too thin'', ''Who lost weight'', ''What celebs look like without make up'' and trolls ripping into women and men for how they look.

Well I am hear to say BLOODY STOP!!!! What does it matter to them what we look like? The last time I looked the world was not a cookie cutting factory, making every single person into one persons image of what they consider to be beautiful (before I continue am I the only person who hears Bruce Almighty B E A UTIFUL in their head when they type out beautiful?? No just me then, anyway back to it).

My philosophy is that everyone is beautiful (Bruce Almighty haha, sorry I'l…

Favourite Make up

Image
I love make up, I alwayshave and I always will. I love how I feel when I have it on, the colours and putting it on as well. So picking some of my favourite items was a little hard, I thought since I wear make up everyday for work that instead of going through all the palette's I wear when I'm not at work, I would pick from my day to day make up that I use.

First is a lovely bargain from everyones favourite place Primark, this sweet little palette is there Nudes Collection it is meant to be the dupe of the Urban Decay Naked palette, although I don't know for myself as I don't own it. I love the colours in this, they are so good for everyday and you do get some good pigmentation from them.




The first colour which is the white, is so good for an inner corner highlight, it looks matte in the picture but it isn't. As you can tell my favourite colour is the 'Café Crème' (from the indentation haha) it is so nice I love it. One a daily basis I will use the brown tone…

Organise Me.....Please

Organisation ......... Organisation.

When I hear that word I get a huge smile on my face, my heart beats faster and my mind flips through all of the stationary I want to buy to get myself organised. I then rush out, spend a fortune on books, planners, pens and everything else I think I need and then ......... nothing. I loose my groove and forget to write things down, I then kick myself for spending so much money and end up not planning anything.

So why do I need to change? Well for One I am 29 years old and I need to think about my life as a grown women and not a stationary loving student (although I will ALWAYS love stationary, yes August is my favourite time of year, I still feel like I need new pens and books when ever I see them on sale, like Meg Ryan in 'You've Got Mail' I feel like having a bouquet of new pens).

Two I am getting married next year and I have so much to plan, my wedding is only small so it doesn't need a planner of its own but I still need somewher…
