Monthly Favourites For February

I know that we are now well on our way into march, but I thought I would just share with you some of my favourite products from the month of February.

My First favourite is a beauty related product, it is the Rimmel apocalips  lip lacquer in the colour Big bang. If you aren’t already aware of what a lip lacquer is, it is the colour and brightness of a lipstick in the form and glossiness of a lip gloss. I have recently been loving this one as it is supEdited rimmel apocalipser easy to apply and lasts for a really long time. As it is so bright, I often like to dull it down a bit with a layer of powder which gives it a more matte look.

Now on to my next favourite, In this last month or so I have really been loving my Konjac Sponge. It is made from a plant grown inkonjac edited Asia, it is a sponge with a very springy texture and it feels good when you wash your face with it. I am led to believe that these  sponges are quite inexpensive however I was given mine as a gift. Overall I defiantly think this is worth a look and is a really good product.

Now on to my third favourite. Recently I have been listening to a lot edited beatsmore music and to help me with this I have been using my Beats by Dr Dre head phones. Now I had heard lots of good things about these so I decided to take a look. They are amazing, I have had over the head headphones before that were quite uncomfortable, but these are so nice. They give a really nice sound quality and come in a really useful pouch for easy storage.

My fourth and final favourite for this month are my Forever 21 jeans. I really can’t fault these jeans. They are so comfy and are easy to wash and fold. They are without a doubt the best jeans I have ever purchased. I love the way that they are really light but they feel good when I am wearing them. Before now I had never really purchased anything from Forever 21, but now I am in love with their products. They were that good that I even ordered another pair last week. So if you are looking for a new pair of jeans, I would defiantly recommend these.

Melting Marshmallow Moment!! 

Recently, I went to the Lush shop. It was great, despite the amount of overpowering smells and the tight confined space. I decided to pick up a few things just to give them a try. One of the things I purchased was a Melting marshmallow moment. It has a really light scent and it is really sweet. The texture of the bath melt was quite crumbly and oily. Once I plunged it into the bath it started to fizz and it produced clouds of fluffy white froth that sat on the surface of the water. Underneath it had coloured the water pink. It also made my skin feel really smooth and soft aswell. Overall I think this is definitely worth a purchase. It was great!! Leave me a comment saying what your favourite lush product is and I will be sure to give it a go xx 

BRIT Awards 2015

Just thought I would share my opinion on last nights BRIT awards ceremony. It was great!!! Ant and Dec were great presenters and everyone who won awards definitely deserved them. Being a self confessed ‘swiftie'(Taylor Swift fan) I was so happy to see that Taylor won the best international artist award she definitely deserves it. Congrats on your first of many to come BRIT awards Taylor!! Some other notable achievements were Ed Sheeran winning two awards as did Sam Smith. However the night wasn’t all fun for everyone. The 57 year old singer Madonna had a bit of what you would call ‘wardrobe malfunction’ she was wisked backwards when her cape  failed to release from around her neck. Oops!! But luckily she was ok! 

Overall the night was a great success and many people we recognised for what they do best!! I can’t wait for next years awards!

Simple Face Care Products

My face tends to be quite sensitive and I can hardly ever find a face wash, moisturiser, cleanser and toner  that doesn’t bring me out in a large red rash across my face and is a reasonable price. Then I found simple products.

It was actually my auntie who first gave me some simple products, she had seen them on offer and thought I might like to give them a go because they work well for her. So, I tried them. It was amazing, the face wash wasn’t harsh on my face and the moisturiser didn’t make my face feel greasy or clogged.

IMG_0419I have recently been using the foaming face wash from simple along with my konjac sponge and I have been getting some great results, my whole face feels refreshed and clean.

Last week, I noticed that the simple purifying cleanser and toner were available. I have used cleanser and toner before but it was my mums and it was really expensive so I thought I would buy my own that I know will agree with my sensitive skin. These two products when used in conjunction with each other, work wonders. It is great for taking any trace of make up left on your skin from the day and they make my skin feel smooth and soft.

I also like the fact that simple products have so many vitamins in them, that are good for your skin. Overall, Simple products are simply amazing and I can’t wait to try more products and see how it goes.

Berlin

Recently, I was privileged enough to visit Berlin for a 4 day cultural trip. I enjoyed every minute of it. We visited many of the tourist type places such as the fernsehturm (TV tower) and Check point Charlie. Before visiting Germany’s capital I knew next to nothing about World War 2, but I learnt so much whilst I was on this trip. As well as the historical side I really enjoyed practising my German in Berlin. I used to live in Germany so I had a little bit of understanding already, I had never been to Northern Germany so it was a new experience for me. 20140408_135330

One of the highlights was definitely going up the TV tower, the view from the top was great and we could see for miles ahead of us. I also enjoyed the river cruise we went on. A pre recorded tape told us all about what was around  us in both English and German which meant I could practice my listening skills

20140407_153753I stayed in a  room with some friends who had never been to Germany before. We switched on the TV in our room and put some cartoons on in the hope that we might hear some words that were familiar to us and the first thing we heard was “AUF WIEDERSEHEN DIE KATZE!” and so it kind of became the motto of the trip.20140406_140945

Overall I thought Berlin is an amazing city and there is always something to do or see. I would definitely recommend you visit if you haven’t already.
