Sephora Haul in Less Than $100! Here’s What I Got!

Hey everyone! As you can see, I have gone wild in Sephora again, except this time, I decided to do a haul for you all! In total, I got 5 items, all of which I am so excited to share with you! So here’s what I got!

  • Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack:
    Untitled design-19 As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I love Too Cool For School face masks! They’re just great quality and do wonders for my skin! This one is an enzyme peel, but it’s mainly for acne. I love it because it is much easier than other types of masks. With this one, I can just throw some on (to exfoliated skin) and hop it bed instead of having to go through the process of say clay masks where it has to be washed off after 15 minutes. Not to mention it smells amazing! untitled-design-18.png
  • Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder: Honestly,
    Untitled design-15I didn’t know how to use this product when I put it in my Sephora basket. A friend of mine (who happens to be a MUA) loves it and so I decided that since I needed setting powder, that I might as well purchase this one. Also, I was looking for a good quality setting powder that comes in darker shades, because if I was to buy a setting powder in a lighter shade, it would easily show up in photos. But in terms of the product itself, it works really well and when I use it to bake, my concealer lasts all day. Untitled design-16
  • untitled-design-9.pngMake Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder: So I haven’t really used this product much! Partly because it is so tiny, and the other part because it is not my color for setting powder. I am really glad that I ended up getting a sample size, because generally, I would say that I prefer the Laura Mercier setting powder. You can get it in other colors, but still I prefer the Laura Mercier powder.

  • Too Faced Melted Latex Liquid Lipstick: Okay so I am in love
    untitled-design-13.png with this liquid lipstick and coming from someone who tends to stay away from liquid lipsticks (I find them messy and they make my lips feel dry) , that’s a lot. I bought this one for two reasons, one being because it was on sale and two because it was this bright red which is perfect for dance. It was one of the best Sephora purchases I have ever made! The consistency is a bit sticky, but on the other hand, it stays on for ages! We had our summer show this past weekend, and all I needed was one or two applications to last the whole day. How amazing is that? untitled-design-11.png
  • Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb: Untitled design-8Anyone who knows me knows that I am obsessed with Fenty Beauty,
    so naturally, the Gloss Bomb came next. I will point out that I received a mini Gloss Bomb in a set that I received for my birthday and I LOVE IT! So I had no choice but to buy the full size and quickly, because my mini is running out from all the use! Definetly well worth the price 🙂 Untitled design-6

So! Was the $93.60 worth it? Yes. Would I order again? Yes! I hope you enjoyed my Sephora Haul!

Love ya!

Tk Maxx Haul!

Hi all! I know back to school is ages away, but my mom and I went to TK Maxx and I just decided to show you all what we got!

I love shopping in TK Maxx, because there is so much selection. A lot of pieces in my room are from TK Maxx, and you would never be able to tell. You can guarantee that when you shop at TK Maxx you are getting a unique piece and I really love that. So here’s what I got:blog tk maxx haul 2

So firstly I have  this gorgeous teal journal, with one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite role models, Michelle Obama. “When they go low, we go high.” The journal is so pretty and the pages are really good quality for biros or ink pens.

Next I’ve got this really lovely magenta notebook. The text on this journal reads “SQUAD GOALS” in holographic lettering. I love the writing on this one because it is so current and so relatable. If there had been more than one in the store they would have made perfect gifts for the squad.

Now onto my favorite journal, we have this amazing grey journal with my favorite word- ‘slay’ written across the front. For me, I decided this was a Beyoncé reference, but we all know that’s just me. And because it says slay across the front, it’s my favorite one.

Next we have this color block journal, which I found to be really interesting, because it has two different colored flaps as the cover. I love the bright colors on the cover and I really like the flap design. It definitely makes the journal much different than all of the other ones that you often see. blog-tk-maxx-haul-7.jpg

On the other hand we have this more aesthetic notebook. I for one love the color lilac- it is just so pretty. And the holographic text is awesome. The text is really inspiring as well. I would say this is probably my second favorite journal.

Lastly, we have this pastel and gold striped journal! I quite like the  gold stripes on it, but the downside is that it’s wire bound. In my experience, what happens is the wires get damaged and then the pages start falling off of the book. The text is probably the most inspiring of all of the journals, and so would be nice to use for school-but I don’t think that will happen. blog tk maxx haul 11

 I hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you next week!

Love ya!

My Bedroom Tour!

Hi guys! Today I decided to let you all in a bit on my lifestyle and show you my bedroom! Honestly I’ve been working on this room for a long time, trying and failing at different colour schemes and duvets, but now I think I’ve found the perfect combination. For me, your bedroom should serve three main purposes, to be an oasis to unwind and relax in, my own space and still be somewhere where I can focus and get work done.

blog bedroom tour 3

First of all welcome to my bedroom! This is the view from the door and you can see my desk and my window, and to the left we have my shelves., which I’ll go into later. blog bedroom tour 4

So here we have my shelves which are organized (or at least I like to think they are) based on what’s actually on them. In the middle shelves we have my hair shelf, with all of the products that my mom and I use in our hair and then under that shelf we have what I like to call control centre. In the little brown bin, I have things that I like to take with me on the go, for example my keys and my oyster card. On the shelf directly below that one, we have my actually bookshelf, where I keep my favorite books and anything that I might need for school.

Now we have my wardrobe, which I will not open for you all as the inside is a complete mess, and I mean complete mess which I need to blog bedroom tour 1declutter. But this is my wardrobe and on the inside is has some lovely built in shelves similar to those next to it and a rod where my clothes are all hanging up.

Here we have my desk, which is actually an old school desk from my brother’s primary school. It has two lift up flaps, and on top it has my laptop, my journal and some other journals (for an upcoming post) and my fan, which is really handy  as it plugs into the computer, so I can use it as I’m working on posts like this for you all!

After this we have my chair, which looks so much more expensive than it actually was because we bought it from Tk Maxx and so it was like 80% off.My mom also managed to find this gorgeous gold ottoman to go with it, and it’s one of my favorite pieces in my
room. blog bedroom tour 5 Over in this corner we also have my fireplace (which does not actually work) and mantle, which houses a lot of pictures and small gifts from the travels of some of my best friends.

Finally we have my bed which has some handy drawers that have the rest of my clothes. Then I have this lovely duvet on the bed which matches perfectly with my chair and ottoman. There’s also a massive Beyoncé poster on the wall courtesy of two of my best friends. And hanging above my bed there are some dance photos from competitions that we’ve done.

I hope you enjoyed touring my room! I love it and I can tell you that it was 80% inspired by Pinterest so check out my board room decor .I hope you liked this post!

Love ya!

The 7 Shows You Need to Binge Right Now

Hi guys! It’s been so long hasn’t it? I took a little (big) break from blogging in the summer but now that I’m back, I’m back in full speed! First things first, my blogging days have changed! I will now be blogging on Mondays and Fridays, as it’s just easier for me due to my schedule.

So for those of you who don’t know, Netflix is my best friend (besides my Mom, you know I love you right). And I don’t know about you, but I was binge watching all summer. I love the excitement of binge watching, watching half a season in one night, and here are my favourite shows to binge watch! I hope you like them!

  1. Pretty Little Liars: Those of you who know me personally know that I am obsessed with PLL. I have seen every minute of every episode of every season, I wont spoil it for you, so you have to go and watch it for yourself! But one note: DO NOT WATCH PLL AT NIGHT- you will not sleep for the rest of the night, especially seasons 3 and 4.
  2. Revenge: If I’m honest, I’m watching it right now, as I’m writing this article. If you like Pretty Little Liars then you’ll definitely like this one. Like PLL, the plot is constantly changing and going in ways you wouldn’t expect it to. It’s really easy to get hooked on it.
  3. The Vampire Diaries- If I’m honest, I’ve only seen like 4 episodes of the Vampire Diaries, in the middle of a random season (I don’t even remember which one), but I can assure you it’s really good! I even went back to watch it all from season one and it’s so intriguing!
  4. The Originals- I wasn’t planning to include any spinoffs, but still it’s probably my favourite spinoff. Episode after episode, I can tell myself that I’m not going to watch anymore for the night and then I could just keep going because I always want to know what happens next. Besides Revenge, it is probably my favourite one on the list.
  5. Once Upon a Time- I have seen all of Once Upon A Time, and I think its good, just not as good as some of the other shows on my list. The show is kind of like every other show/movie that you would watch that includes fairy tale characters. But around season 4/5 the whole thing turns dark and it all goes south. I love it because it is all of these same characters with a modern twist, but you should watch it from the beginning first.
  6. Charmed: I know this is a very old show, it started in 1998. But that doesn’t make it any less interesting. If you liked Once Upon a Time, the Originals or Pretty Little Liars then you will love this. It is still in the theme of magic, but the magic keeps you watching episode, after episode, after episode.
  7. Reign- I’m not usually one for historically based dramas- I like history but I just can’t deal with trying to figure out what is real and what is made up. That said, I still love Reign. Like all of the other shows on my list, it keeps you hooked but you may have to Google a few things, more so if you don’t already know the story of Mary Queen of Scots.

 

Rules of Binge Watching:

For those of you who don’t know, there are a few rules to binge watching:

  1. Always keep a charger by your bed
  2. Always wear socks- that way when you have to go to pee, the floor isn’t too cold
  3. Always keep non perishable food and water nearby,
  4. ALWAYS ASK YOUR PARENTS BEFORE EMBARKING ON A NEW SHOW-EVEN IF THE AGE RATING IS OF YOUR AGE
  5. Take it one night at a time, otherwise you end up sleep deprived.
  6. And last but not least, take naps after you binge watch all night- or else you’ll look like a zombie.

Love
