Holiday Make-up Bag

Here are the few essentials I will be taking with me when I depart for my holiday this Sunday. Not everyone likes to wear makeup on holiday and I normally don't during the day as I'm in and out of the pool and it normally wears off in the sun in anyways, however when we go out in the evening for a meal I tend to put a little on to enhance the tan and to feel better.
1. I dont particularly like wearing anything heavy on my face so I recently picked up the natural collection tinted moisturiser which at £1.99 is mega inexpensive. It offers the tiniest bit of coverage and is extremely dewy so I normally dust my face with a light covering of powder after applying. 

2.This skin illuminator is also one of my favourites and gives that natural glow after swiped across the cheekbone, it'll also look pretty with a tan. (can't remember the price of this but I think its under £10)

4. Mac mineralize skinfinish is pretty popular and I can see why. I have had this over a year and just hit pan. Its light but gives a great coverage. (around £18?)

5. Mac concealer, another favourite. This I have had for ages and its still going strong. It's really creamy and offers a brilliant coverage, perfect for hiding my bags!

6. Nars Laguna bronzer is just effortless. I sweep this in the hollows of my cheeks, down my nose and across my forehead and I look instantly sun kissed but not too orange. I know I am going on holiday and will probably get slightly browner but this enhances it I suppose. (£22?- Jeez' I am useless at remembering prices)

7. Mac Creme blush in Ladyblush. I kinda forgot I had this until last week and since re-discovering it I haven't touched a powder blush. Its dewy and natural which I love but can be built up. I don't like looking to made up when on holiday and that whole powdery look is not cool so this works perfectly! (£18)

8. This is a just incase kinda item as I don't know if I will end up wearing eyeshadow. I use the matte brown to fill in my eyebrows so it'll prove useful for that. (£27.99)

9. 2True eyeliner is my favourite and at £2 you can not fault it. Again I don't know if I will wear eyeliner but I feel naked without it!

10. New favourite is this prestige lash matrix. It makes my eyelashes crazy long. (£6.99)

11&12 I have gone off lipsticks as of late and have started wearing lipglosses again and I think these are better when abroad as with lipsticks you worrying if they have melted or smudged etc. The first one from natural collection (£1.99) is called fondant and I absolutly LOVE it as it gives this naturally glossy lip. The second one from collection 2000 (£3? I) is a more brighter pink but still wearable.

wow pretty long post, hope I don't bore you!

Sunday Silhouette

sun hat - £6 matalan.

I would probably NEVER wear this in the UK but by this time next week I will be abroad and in the sizzling heat which makes it appropriate to wear. This weeks been pretty hectic. I have started coursework again which is totally depressing and to make matters work I dropped my month old iphone 4 on the floor, cracking the screen...

Yes thats right I took a picture of it to remind me of the pain! haha I know its only a phone but it was devastating. I quickly booked an appointment at the apple shop and thankfully they gave me a brand new phone on the spot. Thank-you Apple I could not fault your amazing customer service.

I really am craving the sun and good food! 
I will try to blog again in the week as post's have been pretty sparse as of late, sorry!

I have had a pretty good weekend catching up with old and new friends and eating out twice for two different birthday parties so today I am lazing around in comfy clothes after a pretty epic sunday lunch. Yesterday I ordered some Kurt Geiger shoes that I have had my eye on for ages and yes I do have a job so I pay for my own things + they were mega cheap (£30) for KG as they were in the sale! They aren't summery shoes but I like them nonetheless.
Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend! I go on holiday two weeks today...eeek!

I plaited my hair like this today and I couldn't believe how many compliments I got about it. 3 boys even said they thought it was cool and they liked it (This was surprising as I didn't even know boys realised these things?!) and a teacher said she was going to try it out! Its super simple and easy to do!

new primark clutch (£6)
h&m ring (£3.99)

I am spending my last day of freedom hanging out with friends as I go back to school tomorrow :( I am wearing some of my favourite makeup items which are macs melba blush and russian red lipstick and yes I am wearing a saved by the bell top (although I did not leave the house in it). 
I had a pretty unsuccessful holiday shopping trip yesterday and NEARLY got all worked up looking for a bikini/tankini/swimming costume that actually fits and looks nice, so I gave up and am currently trawling the internet looking for a decent one; sigh.
Hope everyone's goooood.

Fruity Nails

I bought some fimo fruits from ebay for £1.50. This are basically tiny little bits of clay that your stick on your nails with clear polish. Pretty simple really.

 Oh hai claw.
