Lush Bath Ballistic: Secret Garden!

Hello everyone, today's post is going to be about a bath bomb which I have been loving. It is from Lush and is called: 'Secret Garden.' I featured it in a haul post which you can see here. I used this bath bomb a couple of days a go and it has become one of my favourites! 
Firstly, the bomb is massive! I also loved how it fizzed in the bath, as you can see from the picture above; it look so beautiful. Green and pink are my favourite colours so obviously this was a big hit. Oh and I forgot to take a picture of the whole bath- bad blogger! But, I would say that in the middle of the bomb there are loads of flower petals which sit on top of your bath- which is green- not pink. I didnt quite like them because when I got out they were stuck to my body. However, the bath bomb is splendid over all, including the smell. 

Which is your favourite bath bomb from lush?

My Everyday Makeup for School.

Hello blogger beauties! I have not written a beauty post in quite a while so I thought I should dedicate today's post to something beauty related. As you have probably guessed, from the title, it is going to be on my everyday makeup. 
Now, I am still in school- leaving in two months! I don't really know if I am sad or happy to leave. There is however, one or two things I am happy about. 1) my last exam is a day before my birthday- i can spend my birthday care free without any stress from the 11 exams i will be sitting (damn you triple science.) 2)I can finally wear as much makeup as I want and ditch school uniform forever!
So yeah, my school are very strict when it comes to makeup and the length of our skirts. They allow us to wear no makeup. Not even some lipstick! However, being year 11 they are less lenient. 

The makeup I do use is a followed:
-Rimmel Clear Complexion Cover Stick- as it is perfect for hiding my under eye circles. Also, the formula is less heavy than a concealer. I find that with a concealer you need foundation and I hate wearing foundation so this little thing is perfect! 

-17 felt tip liner pen- This goes on my top lash line to make my lashes appear fuller and thicker.

-Maybelline Cat Eyes or S&G Thick and Fast- I swap between the two, depending on how I want my lashes to look. I can't decide which I love more because they are both amazing- you can check the cat eyes review here and the S&G review here

- Natural Collection's Peach Melba Blush- one of my favourite blushes. One of my first ever blog posts were on this- being very embarrassing I deleted it a couple of months a go. Guess I'll review it again?

-Lip Products: Maybelline's Crystal Pink or Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake- I love these lip colours! Crystal Pink gives my lips a nice tint whilst Strawberry Shortcake will give my lips a nice light pink finish.

So that is what I use! All of these products are very cheap and can be found in boots and superdrugs. Like I said before, my makeup for school is very minimal and maybe I'll do a weekend face, too! Tell me if you'd like to see it!

What makeup items do you wear on a daily bases?

Bookworm #3: The Fallen Series by Lauren Kate & Where To Find Me!

Hello blogger beauties. Today is another post in my bookworm series. It is the third post and is on one of my favourite book series and that is 'Fallen,' by Lauren Kate.

The first book in the series is appropriately titled Fallen, then there is Torment, thirdly we have Passion and finally we have Rapture.

I read the first book when I was on holiday and was pulled into it very quickly. Unfortunately I bought Rapture along with it, therefore I couldn't read the second and third one as I did not buy them. Hence, after holiday I quickly became disinterested in the  series that is until a few weeks a go I discovered the books in my school library.

As soon as I started reading 'Torment,' it became my favourite of the two and towards the middle I was adamant that it will be my favourite of the four. I was correct- it is still my favourite.

The series follows Luce- an immortal mortal(it's hard to explain) and Daniel and his friends Cam, Arriane, Roland, Molly and Gabbe. These guys are angels. Angels and Demons. The series follows Daniel's and Luce's love story as Daniel helps Luce discover who she really is. Along the way many obstacles stand in their way such as: battles, the Throne and the disruption of the whole past, which will effect the present. 

I recommend these books to anyone who enjoys reading  sci-fi, romance and 'out of this world but in this world' books as Lauren Kate writes in an amazing rhythm which will capture you in an instant.

Have you read these? If so what did you think? If you haven't can you leave me any suggestions on other books?

Current Favourites!

Hello everyone, it feels like it has been a very long time since I have posted. Today's post is going to be a substitute to my February favourites because I can't do a February favourite in the beginning of the middle of March can I? 

I have not been loving many products recently most of them have been skin care and a few eye products. So, here we go...

My first favourite is Neutrogena's Pink Grapefruit daily facial wash. I use this every morning, although it says morning and night, before I put my daily cream on. I have not had a spot on my face since I have started using this. Normally, when it's 'that time of the month,' i get mini volcanoes erupting on my chin and cheeks. Since then only a few have sprung up but go down in a couple of days. Also, this smells so amazing (shame it doesn't taste amazing.)

My second favourite is: The Body Shop's Strawberry body wash. Ever since I ran out of my Snow Fairy by Lush, instead of buying more I decided to shop my never ending stash of bath products. The first thing I grabbed was this. I really like it. I love the smell it leaves on the skin and the amount it last for. The strawberry smell lasts for around 3-4 hours -which is quite sad- but is still very pleasing. 

17 Felt Eyeliner: I use this whenever I wear make up and I love it. It's in brown therefore I wont get caught out in school- as I wear it very thin on my top lash line- and matches the colour of my lashes. It is also makes my lashes look very thick and full, which I love.

Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara: I have already done a post on this which you can read about here. I have rediscovered this in my stash of makeup this month and have been loving it ever since. It really spreads out my lashes and makes them nice, long and full. Especially when it is paired with the 17 eyeliner. 

Leggings: These will forever be a favourite of mine. I mean why would you wear jeans when you can wear very comfortable leggings. Why? Why?

Blue Tortoise iPhone Case: As you all know, I am a bit phone case crazy and this one is the one I have been using this month. I must love animal cases because this is the second time in a row that one has been my favourite. Get the case here for iphone 4/4s and click here for iphone 5 - both very cheap and from ebay.

What have you been loving this month?
