New Things

Starting my second semester of my second year at Uni is the reason for my short absence here, I'm sure fellow students will understand the difficulty of balancing university, work, socialising, and blogging. Watch this space though, I've got a few posts in the pipeline ;)

The coverage is perfect, and even though I've ended up with a shade a little darker than I would have liked (why do I never get paired right?) I've been wearing it all the time and it really does last all day! After the boom in hair oils and hairdressers trying to sell me Moroccan oil every visit, I caved and went for a cheaper version just to see if I liked it. To be honest, I've been pleasantly surprised! At just under £4 this got 2 b oil has worked wanders by only using a small amount. It adds volume and texture and has given my locks a healthy glow - what more could you ask for? Was anyone else sucked in by the Superdrug Real Techniques brushes offer the other day? Vulnerable me jumped at the chance and got the expert face and blush brush to add to my growing collection. The blush brush does exactly what everyone says, whereas I'm not entirely sure what to use the expert face brush for as my buffing brush works best for my foundation..?

Post valentines discounts are the best so I picked up some pastel pink tulips whilst my housemates have been making the most of the chocolates offer!

Lastly, I ordered this cute phone case on ASOS to replace my falling apart eared case. I love the pattern and the shine finish, I'm just waiting for the day it drops and there are no longer rubber bits round the screen preventing it from cracking..

  3. Everyone has been raving about Ark lately so I must check this out as they have some really nice pieces from what i've seen. I use the RT Expert Face brush for my foundation and I wouldn't try anything else for the minute..works wonders.

  6. I love the iphone case! Do you think it's worth getting, as I love the design but am worried about about the screen area?
