Sorry I haven't updated in so long, obviously you blog readers have missed out a lot on what I've been up to etc. It's just by the time I finish my youtube videos which is mostly my priority I am too tired to do this part! This blog was afterall simply for reference for my yt channel, so I apologise if you like blogs more than videos but I shall try my best for you!
Enough of that, I recently went shopping! Shall we start?
I recently bought some nail polishes to update my collection, I have some lovely
summer colours here!
(From left to right: OPI "My Chihuahua bites!*, OPI "Shorts Story", China Glaze "Turned up turquiose", China Glaze "Mom's Chiffon", China Glaze "Fast Forward Top Coat"
My Chihuahua bites is my new happy medium for a red, you know me and red, we don't
tend to meet or mix that often and the reason I'm liking this is
because it's a red with a twist of pink and orange. I see it and think
"sangria"? Ha! But yeah I think rather than a full on red
this would be lovely, especially for a hot summers night!
"Shorts Story" is from OPI's New Brights and Paige Denim 2009 collection and
while the other colours were lovely I just didn't see myself wearing
any of the colours, apart from Shorts Story. It's such a true pink!
I picked up "Turned up turquoise" on a whim, it's not that
I don't like turquoise, it's just, when on Earth will I really wear this?
I shall try thought, I think it would be lovely for nail art.
"Mom's Chiffon" is by far my FAVOURITE, I'm so attached to the colour. It's a peachy
pink... just such an easy colour to wear. It's girly, feminine but not too
in your face like "Shorts Story". I just think it's a wonderful colour to
wear, it will go with many outfits because it's so subtle. Looks a bit like
a grapefruit colour now I look at it again.
And that top coat- woah, by gosh, does it dry fast!
I don't remember what the man said this was called
but it's "_____ pump" LOL I think!! But this is particurly useful
for those who are clumsy - but also for those people who are fuss free,
wants to be more efficient and news results quick! You just pour in your
nail polish remover and place a cotton pad on top and pump away. No more
clumsy spilling or swilling. LOVE.
Oh yeah I have something else to moan about...I BROKE MY NAIL.
How on Earth? You know how I did it? It snapped..on my jeans.... I am so gutted
because this happened last time. I was growing my nails (mind it doesnt
take me long at all) so I could do some nail tutorials and just as
I was about to...THIS HAPPENS. I don't have weak nails either, I'm just so clumsy
and very rough. I was also in a lot of pain.
Also some pretty nail art sticks...I can't see myself
actually using these, I'm too paranoid I'd end up eating them
by accident O_O
OK So I went to Bay Trading and I'm so sad they are
going into liquidation...I remember buying some of
my first outfits at Bay! *cries*
But let's take advantage of the dramatic sale!!
I picked up a lot of earrings...somehow they all were
serious clothes shopping in a while. My make up obsession took over
and thats it...I'm gone for years with a pristine face and dodgy clothing.
So I've decided enough is enough, I have enough make up to last me
for decades. Here's to my clothing obsession!
I have no idea why I'm buying cardigans, it's the bleedin Summer!
But as backwards as ever, I bought something GREY AND WARM.
I just love the button detail on this and I seriously love grey.
Also a V neck is always a winner for me. I plan to wear this with the cardigan above.
Alike the above Primark cardi, i think this is totally wearable anywhere!
Oh dear I'm sorry the picture is so bad. But it's a skull detail
dress and what I like is that i can dress this down or go all out
and wear it a bit punk/rock. It's very thin so perfect for summer...
again, not following the brightt colourful route.
I've been looking for a trench coat. Before I kept trying them on
your typical beige double button get up and I never fitted properly
before but having dropped half a stone recently I can...and I tried one on and
realised....they make me look quite short actually.
So I've given that up for a little while because I've seen this beauty.
It's such a simple parker, and what I love is that I think I could wear it
for something smart and casual. It's a lovely neutral colour, thin enough for summer
but is roomy enough for layering in the colder evenings. I think i look pretty cool in this!
Again, so sorry for the bad quality pictures! This is my dress for tomorow,
a really pretty pretend two piece, it's a black tee on the top half and
a floral detail skirt with matching bow at the waste. I'm planning to wear this with the cardi below if it gets chilly in the evening.
These are the earrings I'm going to pair it with.
I will have my hair natural, possible flicked out ends, voluminous and big. I want
simply make up so maybe just a neutral smokey eye, nothing too
out there so no glitter, and a nude lip. Also wearing skin colour tights and black heels and
sequined black hand bag.
I LOVE CLOTHES!

Eyeko is a fairly new brand which was developed for the younger, trendier audience; they use 'Manga' illustrations on the packaging and everything is very pink and girlie.
These products are supposed to be a moisturiser, highlight AND an eye cream- so an all round purpose cream. These are quite light in consistency and it gives a very sheer effect. If you want to see direct application go watch my video.
It can smell slightly light paint if you practically plunge your nostrils into it otherwise you can't really smell much.
Why does it claim do?
"Create a flawless base with Eyeko's 3-in-1 Cream
Eyeko says: "To get that A-list glow skip foundation and use Eyeko Cream all over focusing on the eye and cheek area for lit from within skin."
CELEBRITY FAVE As Seen In OK Magazine Issue 365: The cute packaging of this glistening moisturiser is just one reason to fall in love with this great lotion. Kylie has great skin anyway, but a layer of this cream will add a bit of lustre." - Eyeko.com
Eyeko Tinted Cream
"For radiant skin and a sun kissed glow try NEW Eyeko 3-in-1 Tinted Cream. Treat skin to the same luxuriously whipped texture made with super hydrating Jojoba boosted with antioxidants Vitamins A & E plus Vitamin C for a luminous finish as our No.1 bestseller Eyeko Cream.
Eyeko says: "It's the effortless way to get flawless skin. Dip in and pat on for a subtle glow with light reflecting particles that create instant radiance".Contains no petrochemicals" - Eyeko.com
How I use it
I personally use them both for my cheek areas, I find them a bit too reflective as a general moisturiser. I've mixed both into my foundations before as well and I don't think either of them are suited for all of the face. I like using the cream to highlight on my cheeks and the bridge of my nose and the tinted cream to give myself a glow and also helps for contouring. I apply them directly by hand but I've also tried with a thin stippliing brush as well as cosmetic sponges - both are not necessary but are options.
How did it work for me?
How much did it cost? Where can I get it?
You can purchase these are Eyeko.com or if you are in the UK you can also purchase these are your local Superdrugs. They are currently £4.99 in store but £5.00 on the website. Enter in the code E3103 at checkout and you will recieve a free gift :)
My verdict? They are both quite versatile products. If you're looking for a cheap alternative to most expensive bronzing and highlight products, I would suggest these. You actually have A LOT of product (34ml). Like I said I'm glad I have these in my collection but I wouldn't say there were the best I've tried. They wil recieve a 4/5
