My obsession: hand creams

Okay, the secrets out, I have a HUGE thing for hand creams (and hand wash)! I wouldn't say I have dry hands but I do love the feeling off them being nice and moisturized and It's a plus if they smell good too!

I'm a little picky with my hand creams because a lot of them are quite shiny and oily and leave a greasy feeling behind, and that's a no no. I apply hand cream a few times through out the day and I need it to sink it to my skin almost immediately. These are the three hand creams I use most at the moment. When I finish these, which will probably be soon, I'll definitely be re-buying them!!

Every girl should own: collection work the colour nude pallet

Pictures from: Superdrug website

When I first started looking for a nude eye shadows I was so indecisive because of how many there are, It took me about an hour of going back and forwards to different pallets to make my mind up! I'm also a bit of a cheap skate and as much as I love my MAC and Urban decay make up, I am always searching for new affordable options.

Beauty/fashion Bucketlist

Hey guys! Recently I made a promise to myself that I am going to start being more adventurous with my fashion and make up. So that I could stay focused with this promise I typed myself out a 'Beauty/Fashion Bucketlist' and thought it would be fun to share with you :)

1. Androgynous fashion.
I desperately need a new wardrobe full of androgynous clothing! I adore the style and fact that the outfits themselves look quite neutral and that they could be worn by any gender. I have masculine and feminine days, but aswell as that, I have days where I feel a bit of both and this style really suits my personality!

2. Be more adventurous with my hair.
My hair is constantly straight and down, I don't think I've had it in any other style since primary school! I have a lot of free time right now, so I may as well take advantage of this. At the moment I am torn between growing my hair out like i used to have it, or going into a long bob style.

3. Show some leg!!
I only ever wear dresses on special occasions and rarely wear shorts or skirts, I live in leggings and skinny jeans. I think this one may be on my list for a few months more since were apparently getting some very cold and bad weather ):

4. Accessorize!
Whilst I was at University last year I was big on rings and bracelets, but I lost my favorite ring, broke one or two bracelet and 'borrowed' a friend some and after that I didn't buy any more. I was grieving you see. I won't be so careless with my stuff this time, and I definitely wont to borrowing them to anyone, pfft!

5. Try new eyeliner techniques.
I used to have such varied eyeliner and I would always get compliments, but I got myself in to slump where I was just like 'This is way too much effort!!!, so I just stuck to the typical thin straight lined eyes. I'm getting so bored with my make up so I'm up for a change :)

I guess this is really more of a fashion bucket list but I'm sure over time I will add a few more things to this. Once I start doing these I will share them on here for you to check out, but give me time, I'm shy!!  

Comment with items you would put on your beauty bucket list? :)

Introduction + a little bit about me! :)

Blogging is something I've been wanting to do for a long time, I have had a few different styles of blogs but each time I didn't really feel like I was being my true self, so I stopped. Buuut, after a few months away, I've noticed that I do actually miss doing it so here I am again!

I did a bit of ~soul searching~, figuring out what kind of person I am and what my real likes and dislikes are, mainly because looking at other bloggers I felt like I didn't really fit in. But now I've realised that, so what if we don't all share the same interest all of the time, right? this is one of them communities that brings together people from all walks of life, people you wouldn't have met if you didn't do this and we all share one interest for sure!
  • I feel like this should be a more personal post so I'm going to add a few facts about myself. I'm going to keep this pretty short and sweet, so here are five facts about me! :)
  •  My favorite colour is maroon, though I do not own that many maroon coloured items!!
  •  I'm not so fond of the dark....(yeah, even at 19 years old! eeek)
  •  I am totally a cat person, If any cat passes me i just have to give it a stroke, soooo cute.
  •  Carrying on from number four - I also have a cat! shes called Erica and I've had her since I was pretty young, shes my best friend and we are inseparable :)

I am suuuuuuuper duuper excited to get started, like, you don't understand! So, keep your eyes peeled for my next post. I hope you found this interesting! You can leave me a comment telling me some facts about you, I would love to know some :)
