My Top 5 Blushers!

Hey Everyone! Today I thought I would do a little post on my favourite blushers.  Now, I am going to apologise in advance at the lighting in these pictures and in probably many pictures to come.  I am still in school and now in year 11, and so this means that for the majority of the day I am not at home and therefore can't take pictures of my products that are at home.  And so, I have had to take those pictures when I get home from school, and by this time its not daylight, its verging into nighttime.  So these swatches don't show the colour exactly how it would appear in the day.  I am sorry, but there isn't much I can do about it.  But I will try to figure something out - I promise.

Anyway back to the post...

1.  Elf Compact Blushed/bronzed - The blusher in this set is so gorgeous.  It is my go-to blush for everyday.  It is apparently a dupe for the NARS blusher Orgasm. I say apparently because I don't actually own Orgasm so I wouldn't be able to compare it myself.  But I trust other beauty gurus words. But this blush is beautiful and it has a very subtle shimmer which makes your cheeks look radiant.  It also has very good colour pay off, I really do adore this blush.

Paralympic Superhumans

This year the Paralympics was in London! As I said in my previous post, I was fortunate enough to go see the Olympics.  But I was also lucky enough to go to the Paralympics.  I was able to see the athletics and the closing ceremony.  While watching these events I was in awe of all the athletics performing.  To think they went through, what they went through, and then overcame it and worked hard to achieve something that most of us wouldn't be able to do.  Most of us wouldn't be able to throw 9metres in shot for instance, let alone if we had lost a limb, or lost our sight.  All the Paralympians are so inspiring and I think that London welcomed them all with open arms.

Like in my last post, I am going to show you just a few of the many pictures my sister and I took while we were at the Paralympics. Enjoy!

Olympic Fever!

Unless you were living under a box for the last 2 months - you would have known that the Olympics were here in London this year. London 2012, I thought was absolutely fantastic! I felt so honoured that I was able to go to the Olympics and see the hockey.  Now, I do have to say that hockey is one of the sports that I have never played and so I didn't necessarily know what was going on the whole time.  But nonetheless, it was an amazing experience and I'm so grateful that I got tickets and was able to go.

And so while I was at the Olympic park, I took some pictures - obviously :) 
So I thought I would just do this post and show you all my pictures - in case you weren't able to go or just because you want to see some of the Olympics from my point of view. 
Our match was the semi-final for the womens hockey: New Zealand vs Holland.
Waiting in some long arse queues. Sexy I know ;)

Lip Balm-Aholic!

So yeah, I'm a really normal person and I am obsessed with lip balms.  Now before you all start judging me on that little statement, I do have a semi-good reason for loving lip balms.  I get sore and cracked lips quite regularly, now I don't know if thats because I talk to much or simply because the English weather doesn't like my lips.  But, in order to keep them lovely and soft, I have tried lots of lip balms to see which ones really do, do the trick and frankly I like lots of lip balms.

If you ever talk to any of my friends about me and my lip balms you will know that in probably every lesson at school you will catch me applying lip balm at some point.  I guess it is now kind of a habit, but it is also because I like my lips to be moisturised and soft.  I'm sure there is nothing wrong with that. :)

And so, in this post I am going to give my opinion on some the lip balms that I have tried.  I say 'some' because I'm pretty certain I have more lying around somewhere... Anyway, lets get into the review/raveish thingymabob.

Garnier BB Cream | Review


First things I would sincerely like to apologise for not posting a blog for such a long time, however, I have been very busy - but I do know that is not an excuse.  I am just very sorry. Hmm, well, moving on into this post...

Today, as you probably know from the title, I am going to do a review of the Garnier BB Cream.  Now, I know I am late on this bandwagon but I did actually purchase this product when everyone was raving about the BB creams - I just never got round to posting this blog. So here we are.

Actual Review

I have the shade 02 Light/Clair and I find that the colour is good on my skin, but that was when I was tan so it might not be the perfect shade now, however, it's bearable. I used this religiously when I was in Spain because BB creams or tinted moisturiser are much better in the sun as its lighter on your skin, but I do have quite a few scars on my skin from me being very naughty and picking spots (don't do it!!) and so I find I need to apply concealer as well as the BB cream because it is not heavy at all.
