Make Up: A comfortable day & Ask me Questions!

Right now I'm all about feeling comfortable. I've been spending most of my days being a total hermit, holed up in my room writing what seem to be never-ending essays for University. It seems to have got a lot busier now and today I'm giving in and popping into town to buy a diary. I feel so disorganised right now, it's making my head hurt! My mama kindly bought me this beautiful hoodie from Joe Browns this week as a little treat for no reason. Bless her cottons, she's such a sweetheart. I've barely worn anything else since I got it, it's the perfect length for wearing with leggings & like I said, I'm all about the comfort! 
Hoodie: Joe Browns. // Glasses♦: Ralph Lauren via Pret a Voir.

I rediscovered my Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation last month and I'm so happy I did! I love how lightweight it feels on the skin yet how flawless it makes my complexion look. I finally remembered why this is one of my all time favourite foundations! I'm head over heels in love with my new specs, I totally understand that they're a love or hate kind of thing, I just absolutely adore them and they're so comfortable, but I'm sorry if you're not a fan!

Yesterday I finally filmed another video, I'm really loving making videos for my channel at the moment but I can't say I'm a fan of editing! I'm going to try and keep my videos under 10 minutes long because those are always my favourite videos to watch & I'm going to try and not mess up too much so I don't have a lot to edit! In my latest video, which should be up this weekend sometime, I mention I was thinking about doing a Q&A video, so let me know if you have any questions for me! Here's a link to my new Formspring (silly me managed to get locked out of my old one!) where you can ask questions anonymously. I'll answer most things, so if there's anything you're curious about then feel free to ask!

I'm going to have a much needed mooch around Boots and Superdrug this afternoon. I'm hoping to find an MUA stand because I've been hearing such good things about their products lately! Do you have any recommendations for must have high street make up? I'd love to know if there's anything I should check out!

How are you? 
I feel like I've not had a real chance to catch up with you lately!

  4. I love the new specs personally :) They really suit you. As for MUA I really love the cheap palettes, I think my fa high street brands have to be Bourjois and Rimmel but I'm liking Collection/2000 a lot.

  15. Your new glasses look great, they really suit you!
    I've been trying to decide whether to go for the Healthy Mix foundation and concealer so I think reading this has swung it. Is the concealer good at covering under-eye dark circles?
    Hope you managed to find the MUA stand, I had a browse on their site yesterday and found that I wanted pretty much everything, so I filled my fantasy shopping basket up with everything I wanted to see how much it would be and it came to under £30 for about 14 items. Bargainous!

    1. Thank you lovely! I really recommend the Healthy mix range. The concealer is pretty good at covering under eye circles, it's not the best but I'm quite impressed with it! I did manage to find a stand but there were hardly any products in stock, I think I'm going to order from the website because there are so many thing I want to try & they're so affordable! ox
