Birthday Beauty



Hey 




So it was my 26th birthday recently and I completely was spoiled, I thought I'd share a couple things I got.


Superdrug are doing 3 for 2 on all cosmetics, makeup brushes, nails and fake lashes at the moment and I thought I'd take advantage.. if you buy 3 for 2 you also get a free pom pom, which I was delighted with ( I chose the grey, but there is also pink and white).

Here is what I purchased :)



Freedom pro artist  -Studio to go- Palette 

I absolutely love this palette, it consists of 32 Eye shadows,Bronzers a Blush and a Highlighter.
The eye shadows are super pigmented and include 9 mattes and 23 shimmers, I found all the colours were super easy to apply and blend like a dream! What I love so much about it, is that you can easily go from a subtle day look to a dramatic night look all within the same palette, pretty handy if you travel a lot and don't want to carry around a lot of makeup. The blush is a stunning pink and will be gorgeous in the summer! There is a light bronze and a dark bronze to suit any skin tone. I can't rave enough about this palette but the highlight has to be my favourite, its so glowy ( is that even a word) and shiny and makes me feel like I'm glowing to the gods! 






GOSH Matte Velvet Touch lipstick in 'ROSE'

I'm not particularly familiar with GOSH cosmetics but I saw they had a wide range of lipsticks and I don't own a lot of lip products, so I thought that would be another purchase for my birthday. I'm a matte girl! I don't really like glosses or anything too slippery on the lips( Honestly I'm the worst at describing) I'm more drawn to mattes and think they complement me quite well. I think dark colours make me look more pale then I already am, so I tend to stick to rose colours or corals. This lipstick goes on smoothly and drys to a matte quite quick. They have a wide range of colours to choose from so I was there for a while choosing! I decided on 'Rose' which is a pink nude, my lips but better kinda thing and resembles something Kylie Jenner would wear so I grabbed it, and love it! 




Maybeline Lash Sensational Mascara

This is most probably an everyday item for most of you but this is my first time purchasing this mascara and I cant believe it took me so long! It really does do what it says on the tin :) I find I have such awkward lashes to work with, mine tend to do their own thing and despite curling them and putting on loads of mascara just to make them look like they stand out, they just always slump back to normal position. This mascara met more then my expectations and makes my eyes look open and vibrant and I look like I'm wearing falsies! which by the way, I'm a complete dummy at! Ive been wearing this non stop since Ive purchased it and highly recommend it.






So that's everything :) 

Make sure to check out superdrug and go get your 3 for 2 while it lasts! especially now Christmas is nearing!

A Little Introduction.


Hi guys, so I guess first of all I thought I should tell you abit about myself and exactly why I started this blog. 

I'm 26 years old and currently living with my mum and boyfriend in Slough Berkshire, I won't bore you with the details too much but recently we've just moved home, not far from the old house actually, just ten minutes up the road in fact.  Mum decided to downsize. So we are currently living in a two bedroom house which is lovely and so far I've enjoyed it here and it's certainly started to feel more homely now that we've added all our furniture and put our mark on the place. It's been about three months since we've moved in but feels like longer to me, guess that's a good thing. Right? 

Oh I forgot to mention the pets.. we have two cats, Esso and Magic.. and my very spoiled dog Lennie, who's half Jack Russel and half Patterdale, he is a mummy's boy and I'm sure he will be in my blog posts to come.

So on to the important stuff.. I've been obsessed with all things makeup since I turned 22/23 I'd say, before that I didn't really care about it. I think that's because mainly I didn't know what the hell I was doing, sure I knew how to chuck mascara on my lashes but it would be some old mascara that had probably been in my mums makeup bag for an eternity, because like me she never wore makeup unless it was Christmas or some special occasion, it was always dry and clumpy but hey it did the job. Appearance wise, I never suffered from spots too much so never had to worry about  having to cover them with concealer or foundation, Not being too vain, but I'd always thought I never needed makeup really, I thought I was ok without it. 

So going back..

2013 rolls by and I'm on my PC bored as usual and I go on YouTube, which back then I only ever used to go on to watch music videos, suddenly in the area where it says 'recommended' is a video of a girl doing a E.L.F makeup haul (Beccarose) previously known then as voussontbeauetbelle and to me I was a little intrigued, I'd say about 10 minutes later the video was over and I suddenly went on to more and more makeup hauls and tutorials and before you know it I've spent all day watching people do their makeup and I loved it. Not only did I enjoy watching them but I also went out and bought my first foundation and now here we are in 2016 soon to be 2017 and I have so much make up (that I cant even afford mind you) that it's overflowing my bedroom. 

So that's the main breakdown of things, if I'm missing stuff out please be patient with me as this is my first attempt at trying to cram all I want to say in these few paragraphs and I think I'm kind of doing an ok job. (Kinda) 

I decided to blog because I see a lot of beauty gurus blogging and it seems so much fun. To a lot of them actually it's their living but I'm not hoping to get millions of views or comments, I'm just hoping someone sees my page and gets enjoyment from it like I have others :) I enjoy reading what people have to say and I'd like to think I can do the same.. my blog is going to consist of a bit of this and that, mainly beauty and lifestyle, maybe abit of fashion in there too, because I think that's what I've got more to talk about really and its what im quite passionate about now. 

I'm hoping to blog once a week to start with and then who knows from there.. My blog is my oyster :) I think blogging once a week is reasonable as I might not get alot of views and I want to see how things go.. also I feel i'll have more content if I leave things and recap on the week.. 

But for now that's all I've got :) 

Thanks for reading

Vickie♡
