George Ezra Concert (best night of my life)

Hello gorgeous, thanks for stopping by!
I can't put into words how AMAZING this was, but scene as this is a blog post i am going to have to. I am talking about George Ezra in concert! If you do not kknow who he is then have you been living under a rock? because he is so big at the moment especially in the UK. And i can really see why.

It isn't just the fact that i saw him performing live that excited me it was center stage, front row! Can it get any better? Yes, yes it can because i was with some of my best friends singing having a fun time (as you do at concerts). Next thing  i knew he was looking at me so i smiled and guess what, he smiled at my smile! I completely fan girled, even my friend standing next to me saw it so it must have been true (not just my imagination).

When on stage he told us a little story, he said he came down to cornwall (where i live) on holiday and was in a little local pub in which a band called Me and the evil were playing. Not a big band in the slightest, just a group of old men (not meaning to offend them but that is what they were). They played really nice original and covers of blues songs, George really liked them so he asked them to be his support act. I thought that was really sweet and humble of him. Surprisingly i really liked them.

George Ezra is an amazing performer and i really recommend you go see him if you ever get a chance! If you have never heard of him or any of his songs then again where have you been? and i will link some below.  It might not sound like your type of music to begin with but listen to the whole sing and more than one because they are all very different in my opinion.

Budapest -  (my fave upbeat)
Over the creek -  (my fave slow)

(You can see him looking at me in this video!)
Thank you again for reading,  i hope you have an awesome day, see you soon!

You beauty unboxing

Hey there lovely, I hope your having a good day today! 
I always get really excited when opening something like this because it's like a mini Christmas or your birthday  and i just really want to know what is inside. Therefore i recent decided to give a beauty box a go and u wanted to try Ipsy, however they only ship to America and I am far from there. Consequently, I am on the hunt for the best British one for people like myself who cannot get their hands on beauty boxes like Ipsy. 

You beauty discovery is £6.49 a month and you get to choose 2 things from a short list of minis. Then they send you a couple of other products they think you may like. 

In this short list was a body butter, tanning things, a brush and Calvin Klein lipstick (which i really liked the look of but it was out off stock, just my luck) and various a different skin care bits and bobs.  

I chose:
Inka - organic pure primer, 
Amie - facial wash & matte moisteriser. 

They also added: 
Urban fruit - smashing straw berry snack,
Clipper - organic teas (red fruit & aronia berry and organic green tea),
Good to go anywhere -  wipes.

I haven't tried the products yet, but when I do I will let you know how I get on with them. Price wise this is a little cheaper than some of the other boxes but only by a couple of quid. On the other hand i thought there would be more beauty related gifts, however if you are into that sort of thing then try   this.  I'm not 100% sue if this was worth the money but that may have just been this month.

Thank you so, so much for reading and i hope to see you very soon!

Summer spirit

Hey, hope your doing well!
I was sitting in the garden earlier and started to feel so much more summary (finally) and thought I would show you what I do to get in the summer spirit. Because if you live in the UK like me then you will know how hard it is to get in a summer mood when the weather doesn't want too. 

Things you need for a good old sunbath, either in the gorgeous garden or on the beautiful beach. 

Firstly you need a drink too stop you from getting dehydrated, I had peach iced tea which is such a summary drink that I love so much and everytime I have it, it just rinds me of summer in Spain.

My next essential is a book, if your not a book person then maybe try a magazine because it just really helps to relax you. Anyway, the one I am reading at the moment is the glam guide by fleur de force, I am addicted to this book it is amazing and I haven't read anything like it. I would really reccommend this!

Sun cream is essential because even though you want a beautiful bronze glow, you don't want to get wrinkles or look like a tomato! 

Similarly, sunglasses are a must, mine are just from a vintage shop for £10. 

Finally, headphones! If you want a nap whilst tanning or just want to relax, I feel that I cannot do that without a bit of music. Some songs I love for summer are:

Katie  Perry- California Girls
B.O.B- airplanes 
LMFAO- sexy and i know it
Carly Rae Jepson- Call me maybe
Flo rider- Whistle
Robin Thicke- Blurred lines
Daft Punk- get lucky
OMI- Cheerleader
MAGIC- rude

Okay, thankyou so much for reading myy post and i hope to see you very soon, gooood bye!

Royal Cornwall Show

Hey hope your having a good day!
So the other day i went to the royal Cornwall show with show friends which is a huge fair with loads of stalls and is a lot of fun. I took a load of pictures and thought i would share them with you.

Firstly we headed over to the fun fair, kind of like the traditional on with rides and games that you win prizes that sort of thing.

This is up on the Ferris wheel, it was such a squash that I wasn't even sitting on the seat just sitting on both their laps. 

This was on hook a duck, Emily won a little stress thing that she called Barry and i won a little teddy called Bernard.
There's nothing like a picture with a big  fluffy bear. That cheeky  bear decided to hit us strait in the face, what a lovely guy.

Then we gave the sheep a little visit, whenever we walked past they would try and eat our bags. Greedy guts.

It tried eating me! A little too close for comfort.

This little piggy got a bit confused me thinks. 
Just the same as last year we set our self the challenge of taking a selfie with a cow. We did it again even though everyone around thought we were completely mad. 

Some people think face paints are for kids, but in my opinion your never too old ;)

We got super cute pace paints done, mine is sort of festival style and Emily's was a dinasour that when she talks it looks like it talks too. 

Not forgetting about food, we got some lovely cheesy chips to share. 

The amount of freebies and stickers we got is insane! Even a pair of sunglasses, that sort of thing pleases me immensely!

Lastly there was this weird thing that is so hard to explain but you are basically attached to bungees that pull you back when you try and run forward it is hilarious. The picture above just shows the ditermination in Emily's face and char falling on the floor with laughter in the back ground.

Thankyou so much for reading my post it was a little random, not what I usually but I hope you still enjoyed it just the same. See you soon good bye!

Rimmel skandle eyes eyeliner

So I bought the Rimmel Skandle eyes eyeliner not to long ago and I thoroughly enjoyed the product. Firstly, the name is a good play on words and I do love it when you buy something which is a play on words like lots of lippys or eye shadows. I actually got it in 004 blue and 003 purple to be a little bit different and I loved them. Also they can sometimes be more complimentary on the eyes than the usual black eyeliner. They  are easy and quick to apply like many other jel eyeliners but they  are also very smooth. I used them for a natural look so it looked like I wasn't wearing any eyeliner but gave a bit more definition to my eyes and am very happy with it.

I don't know the original price of these but they are drug store so i'm guessing not too pricey. When I went into town with my best friend Emily check out her blog ( Anyway we went into the pound store near us not  looking for much just too have a look. And we found the skandle eyes! we just went crazy! and I don't know why I told you that long story but I just thought I would let you know.

Rocking that red lip

Hey there, hope your day is going well! 
Today's post is on a classic red lip look that I love so much but hardly wear. I think it suits anyone and any skin time you can even change it up to suit you. I did a look on how to make blue eyes pop  and this is another great look for that but it also shouts brown eyes. So keep reading...

Products I used: 
Bell'apierre brow powder - Marrone
MUA lipstick - shade 13 
MUA lip liner - red drama
L'oreal superstar super liner 
Benefit - hoola bronzer 
MUA highlighter - iridescent gold
Maybelline mascara - the falsies 
Garnier bb cream - light
Collection eyes uncovered pallet

This look is such a classic simple look that I love so much. So I started off with Garnier bb cream as a base because I don't usually use a foundation but this look is a sleek chic look so your skin with bb cream looks flawless. Then I used my collection last perfect concealer as a highlighting concealer. Then went in with my hoola bronzer as a contour for an extremely sculpted look. I didn't use a blush for this because I have naturally blushed cheeks but if your a blush kinda gal I would go for the sleek life's a peach one because that is stunning. Finally I used my MUA highlighter on the tops of my cheekbones and this is awesome for the price.

Then into eyes this is a very simple look I used the collection pallet (which is an amazing dupe for makes basics) and just took white chocolate all over including my brow bone and inner corner then used brown sugar in my crease. Next I used the L'oreal liner just on my upper lash line and you can make as bigger wing as you want. Lastly, I used my maybelline mascara for a pretty dramatic lashes look I might have fine over board but I did a lot a lot of layers. 

Eyebrow wise, I went for a defined look and tried a brow powder by Bell'apierre that I got ages ago and forgot about, I really like this and think it looks natural yet you can create a beautiful look with it. It also doubles up as a liquid eyeliner if you add water, bonus! 

I made this look quite affordable but I will do a high end makeup look soon. I hope you enjoyed the post and see you soon, gooooood bye!
