Westfield Bargain Hunting Challenge

Hello My Lovelies :)

Hope you are all well. So, this is quite an exciting post for me to write for you all. I was recently ccontacted by Westifield London Shopping Centre to collaborate with them. I was super excited when they contacted me because i absolutely love shopping there and have even been to their Malls across the world including Los Angeles.

They have been absolutely amazing to work with. I was meant to go down to Westfield last weekend, but unfortunately we all got hit by snow and it put a halt in my plans, so i was unable to get down. We were chatting througout the week and re-sceduled everthing for the weekend just gone and i was able to get down and do some shoppingggg :D

So, my 1st Challenge was to do a little bargain hunting :D who doesn't like hunting down a good ol' bargain ;) 
So they kindly gave me a voucher to spend on anything i wanted throughout the store. So, i went down to Westfield Sunday morning super early as i had to meet with them and pick up my voucher. We were literally walking around the shopping centre for a good hour or so until all the shops opened, but it gave me time to think about where i wanted to have a browse and anything else i needed to pick up. Which was fab because i remembered to pick up some of the new 'Rimmel Apaocalips' :D

Now, you could say i cheated a little bit because i did spend a little over the amount that they gave me, but trust me, this was a bargain that you couldn't refuse. This little beautie was sitting there waiting for me as if it was fate :D

So, your probably all wondering what i picked up :) We decided to have a little wander thtrough the Miachel Kors store...



We were served by the nicest sales assistant ever, she got to know us and found out what we were looking for and she showed us this particular handbag and i instantly fell in love with it :)


Michael Kors - Layton Cream Hobo With Gold Hardware

This little beautie is the 'Michael Kors Layton Cream Hobo With Gold Hardware' and i think it'sabsolutely stunning! The colour is very unique and fresh and i love the gold hardware against it, it's something different to what i already own in my collection. I adore the Hobo design, all of the storage compartments inside and on the outside of the bag and not forgetting the stunning MK charm on the bag. Another exciting aspect is the straps, they can be transformed into 3 different levels depending on how you like to hold your bag. 

So, I stated earlier this was an amazing bargain that i could turn away from. Originally the bag was £310 but i picked it up for £94!! My face literally dropped when the sales assistant told me, i actually couldn't believe it haha Thats a whopping saving of £216 which i think is absolutely amazing!

So thats what i got up to last Sunday :) and now i have a fabulous little bargain which i can add to my handbag collection :D I hope you enjoyed reading this post, please let me know what you think about the bag :D

Haul | Ft. MAC, Urban Decay, Real Techniques & Lush

Hello My Lovelies,

Hope your all well :D Todays post is going to be a Haul post which i promised you all in yesterdays 'Snowy OOTD & Makeup' post :) I havent done a Haul in a while and i went out yesterday and treated myself to a few things  :D


As you can see from the title of this post i went to a few stores and counters, MAC, Urban Decay, Boots and Lush :)


I went to my local MAC counter with the intentions of only picking up a Lip Pencil to use with some of my favorite lipsticks, notice how it's pink haha ;) but then i got wrapped into the Eyeshadow section and ended up walking out with 4 new eyeshadows for my Palatte Collection...eeeep!!

Lip Liner - Hip n Happy

MAC Eyeshadows -
Vanilla
Satin Taupe
Sable
Woodwink

(I think that's the right order, i totally forgot to check the names before i took the photo haha but all the names are correct) 


I then went to Urban Decay and picked up a few goodies. Yet again i only wen with the intention of picking up the new 'NAKED Basics Palette' but eneded up walking away with a few other lovely bits.
I had my makeup done in store and she used the Primer Potion in Green as a base and it totally transformed the look of the eyeshadows on my eyes. She opted for a beautiful grey/black smokey eye and gold shimmer was peeking through from the Primer. She then touched up my foundation using the NAKED skin foundation with this 'Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush' which is absolutely Ahh-Mazing :D

Naked Basics Palette
Primer Potion in Greed
Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush

I'm super excited because i've been invited to some Urban Decay events coming up :D one next week which is devoted to the NAKED range and also one in February when the 'Wizard of OZ' Palettes are released. Ahhh so excited :D


I then popped over to Lush which is a fave store of mine :) i was introduced to it a few years ago and have really gotten in to it more now after reading lots of lovely reviews in the #bbloggers community :) i was browsing the store for ages, smelling everything and filling up my little basket haha

1. Cream Candy Bubble Bar - This is an absolute favorite of mine and smells super duper delicious :)

2. Dragons Egg Bath Bomb - This looks like it has super fun colours on the inside of the bath bomb and looked super fun so i had to try this out also :) The website describes this one as an 'Everlasting Gobstopper' as it fizzes layer by layer to show amazing suprises :D ohhh how exciting!

3. Mmmelting Marshmallow Moment Bath Melt - This smelt very similar to the Creamy Candy Bubble Bar but it had the word Marshmallow in the name and i'm a sucker for candy so i had to get this one. It also reminded me of their Rockstar soap which i love also :)

4. The Comforter Bubble Bar - This smelt so yummy and berry fruity ;) Mum helped me pick this one out

5. Ickle Baby Bot - How cute is this robot?! I've just seen on the website that it's acually for a baby...whoopsie haha It helps soothe and gets you off to sleep. I am a bit of a night Owl, i've been going through a stage where i can't get to sleep until after 4?! I really like my sleep so hopefully this will help out :D

If you've tried any of these please let me know what you think or if you'd reccomend any others to me :D


I then popped over to Boots and picked up the last Real Techniques brush i needed for my Collection :D YAY!! Coudn't believe i didn't have this little sucker and i was super lucky as it was the last one on the shelf :D

So thats my Haul :D i hope you enjoyed reading it lovelies. If you have any questions, requests or reccommendations please do not hesitate to leave a comment below, or tweet me or say hi on Instagram :D

I have some exciting posts coming up and some fun collaborations :D

First Post Of The Year | First Youtube Video | What's In My Bag?

Hello My Lovelies,

Long time no speak, this is officially my first post of 2013 haha i'm really late. I just wanted to write a quick post to fill you in on a few things and see how all my lovely followers are doing :)

So, i finally did it! I finally took the plunge and made my first Youtube video :O!! After speak to bloggers through #bbloggers chats and asking whether you'd like to see me film a few videos you guys said yes. It was a definite spare of the moment thing filming my video yesterday and i think it was the best thing for me really otherwise i probably would have worked myself up and the video would have turned out even more rubbish haha

It is my first video so i chose something that would be fun and quite easy to film, a 'Whats in my Bag' video. I soend countless hours watching these types of videos so thought i'd give it a go and try and do my own. The support has been absolutely amazing so far, i was so nervous when the video finally went live, i din't know what to expect, my emotions were everywhere haha.

I'll link the video below if you fancy taking a little peek at it :D i'd love to know what you think, if you have any other requests please do not hesitate to contact me on here, youtube or twitter :)


I will be doing a few post really soon with some exciting annoucements so keep an eye out for them :) can't wait to post them for you guys!

I'm off to University now, i have a Lecture and a Seminar today and then Squad Photos for the Cheerleading Team :D 

Speak to you all soon!

Lots Of Love
