This year is going so so quickly! Some amazing things have happened this month! I can confirm that I will be in America for three months this summer! I am super excited! (Any tips on travelling to the USA are very much welcome in the comments section below!). Also in April I went on my first run in a while because I want to do a half marathon soon! My time was what I wanted so this was a promising start! As well as this I have finally finished my first book since completing my degree (which ended almost a year ago!). When I completed my English Literature degree I strangely had little desire to finish a whole book as I read about 1-2 a week for 3 years. It didn’t feel like reading was a pleasure anymore but more like something I had to do in order to formulate an assignment. It wasn’t that I fell out of love with literature per-say..believe me I tried to read but could never stick with a book long enough so now I have about 7 half read books lying about my house! But I am so glad that I am finally out of this reading funk because I truly enjoy reading! It is also why I haven’t really blogged as much too because of the sheer volume of essay writing required for my degree. Fashion and beauty is my passion so I am excited to share a few purchases I have made this month…
♥ Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip gloss shade Plums Up
My auntie is a huge fan of the Sexy Mother Pucker lip gloss range from Soap and Glory. I have always thought the lip glosses they do were really pretty shades so on a spontaneous trip around Boots I picked this one up. Once you apply it to your lips it makes them tingle as it ‘plumps them’. I don’t really know if it does make them any bigger as my lips as quite big but I do know that it is a gorgeous shade! It isn’t a sticky lip gloss and stays on a while so would for sure recommend this product. £9.00
♥ Eyelure London Exaggerate No 145 Fake Eyelashes
I needed some last minute fake lashes for a night out so bought these from Boots. Eyelure has in my opinion always been a reliable brand for fake lashes so went straight for these! There were lots of different types but I usually go for volume (when I was younger I used to wear two pairs of fake lashes on nights out!!). They were only £5.45 and came with glue. The glue is a bit rubbish but thankfully I have my own glue! Lashes great but glue not so great!
♥ Natural Collection Lip Liner Ruby Rose
This lip liner is only £1.99 from Boots. It is really good! I needed a lip liner for my VIVA GLAM MAC lip stick as it bleeds sometimes. It is super for the price – would definitely recommend!
♥ MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick
This is in my opinion an essential for any girl to have in her make up bag! Class matte red lipstick from MAC. £15.50 but well worth the price!
