Wicked Wednesday

Howdy bloggers, pleasure to meet again, this is becoming quite a routine now isn’t it? I’m loving doing these blogs and I hope you are enjoying them too! Anyways, on to the day!
I had no college today, so I could have a lovely chill day… Bliss!
So today’s new purchase is a top coat nail varnish from Rimmel.

I have found that no matter how many layers of nail varnish I put on and no matter how expensive the nail varnish, it will ALWAYS chip!! So I decided to try a proper top coat and not just a clear nail varnish. I bought this 2 days ago and used it as soon as I got home. My nail varnish is still in tact, and I am over the moon! Really am surprised how well it worked! I only put one coat on and it dried almost instantly, very happy bunny!

Now onto shoe of the day! I flippin love these ones today. I feel like I’m transported back in time!

I bought these on sale last year in Matalan for about £4! Yet another pair of bargain shoes… SCORE!

We’ve been so lucky with the weather recently so we have been able to go out on long walks with the dog, Tonka. It has been wonderful!

Even though I am a fan of winter, you can’t help but relish in the warm, it just makes you feel happy!

So to go with the lush summery weather the shuffle song of the day goes beautifully. It’s by DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith, called Summer Time! Aaahh what a beaut of a song!
Take a listen.

All good things must come to an end, and I hope this blog has been good so now it has to end. Sad times…
It’s not a goodbye, it’s a see you later.

I love me some post!

Hey hey, bloggers, it’s delightful to see you again. It’s been a another beautiful day here in Wales, but I was stuck on college for some of it… Rubbish!
So, when I got home a parcel from asos was waiting for me! Whoop whoop!
And I know I’m a bit late with this but who cares! Inside was the Rimmel Apocalips, in the colour Stella!

I was a bit weary of how bright this colour was going to be, but I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It’s like a brighter tone of a vintage red, and I adore it. The wand is almost a heart shape so the coverage is really good. When you put it on first it looks really shiny and sticky like a lipgloss but after a few seconds it becomes more matte and looks like a proper lipstick.
It is so great! I got mine from ASOS for £4.49 which I don’t think is too bad? You can get it from here.

Now, I feel a bit bad about the next bit of my blog, I think I’m a failure… So I didn’t wear a new pair of shoes today, so I didn’t see the point in talking about the same one. So instead I am going to link a pair of shoes that I really want to get! Please don’t hate me!!
I love these ankle boots they look so vintage and me…. The price doesn’t look like me though! A girl can dream though…
Get the boots here

And finally shuffle song of the day! I flippin love this song. It’s by Frank Turner from his album Love Ire and Song. And it’s called Long Live the Queen. It makes me want to cry though…. But it is excellent! Give it a go!! Listen to it here!

See you on the morrow my friends!

The Quest for Perfect Skin…

Welcome,welcome, come on in! Well today was Monday. I’m sure most of you knew that. So Monday meant that it was back to college… Sarcastic yay! It wasn’t too bad actually as one of my lessons had been cancelled, so only had to go to English! Winning! And I was literally saved by the bell, as the fire alarm went off and we could go home early, double winning!

Today’s shoe of the day, is my green studded fake Tom’s.

Super comfy, go with nearly all of me clothes and I got them for £3 in New Look! Wouldn’t recommend you wear them out in the rain as they are not waterproof and tend to make you fall over in front of many people…. Trust me I know this to be true…

As you may have gathered from the title of this blog, I am indeed in search of the perfect skin. I haven’t found the right combination yet, but I am certainly on the way. So I wanted to share with you my nighttime skin routine, from beginning to end! So here it goes!

Firstly I start with my bioderma.

20130603-231924.jpg
I tend to use this most on my eyes, as I wear an eyeliner most days, it can be a struggle to get off with a make up removal wet wipe! But with this it comes off with ease.
You can get the Bioderma here!
If your quick and buy it in June, there is a 1/3 of all Bioderma products! Grab yourself a bargain!

Next I use a larger cotton wool pad and remove all the makeup and dirt from my face with my Garnier Soothing Cleansing Lotion.

20130603-232117.jpg
I put this all over my face, and it works as both a make up remover and a cleanser all in one!
Great Stuff! By the way I got this in Home Bargains (a better version of a pound shop) for £1.99

I then use a toner, just to even out my skin tone and cleanse it even more!

I also got this in Home Bargains for £1.50

Next I use my Simple hydrating light moisturiser. I can’t get enough of this stuff, I rave about it all the time!

20130603-232431.jpg
I got this in Lidl for £1.99

Finally, if I have time, and I’m not too tired I will use my Lush ‘Angels on Bare Skin’ fresh facial cleanser.

Now, I don’t use this everyday, as I can’t be bothered. But when I do get round to doing it I flippin love it. It reduced redness, makes my skin feel so soft and best of all it seems to prevent spots from appearing. Love love love this!
You can get it here!

The biggest tip I can give for those with bad skin and desperately want to improve it is….
Get rid of the make up remover wipes! Do it NOW!!!
I know they are quick and easy to use but they will reck and dry out your skin. I know that they are cheap too, but most of the products I have used are really cheap and available in most high street shops… Boots, super drug, etc. Trust me, you will thank me later.

Now, onto shuffle song of the day!
It’s from the album
Ukulele Songs by Eddie Vedder and its the song ‘Can’t Keep’.
Such a beautiful song, and one you should listen to. The whole album, in fact is a beaut, and a great summer one too!
Listen to the song here.

And that’s all from me, and it’s been lovely.
See you soon.
