My blogging space

Hello lovelies,

Today I thought I'd introduce you to my blogging space, the place that I do quite a lot of my blogging. Some bloggers have snazzy desks to write at, me I have two places I write my posts either on the sofa watching telly/youtube whilst my parents are trying to chat to me OR on my bed singing along to musicals online.

This post is about my bedroom blogging because I do do most of my blogging there.


Meet my bed (this kind of feels really personal) complete with my old (but functioning) laptop and iPad on show. It isn't the most snazzy of set ups, unlike other bloggers but this is my little safe haven, where no body else can get to me.

Where do you do your blogging? Let me know in the comments.

Lots of Love,
C

Easy Halloween Costumes

Hello Lovelies,

If you know me at all, you will know that I really do not like Halloween. All the masks creep me out a bit and to be honest all in all I am a bit of a wuss.

I have realised a few years ago that you can easily make a costume if you HAVE to so today, I thought I'd talk about three easy ones I would try.

Wednesday Addams


I have recently become a little obsessed with The Addams Family Musical so this was an easy one to think about. All you need is : A black dress with a white collar, black leggings,black boots. Hair and Make up wise, the hair just needs to be put into two plaits and also a pale face would help (but it isn't essential).

Barbie

This is really easy, its just A LOT of pink. Pink lips, pink dress, pink shoes and if you want to live recklessly a blonde wig.

Finally one I don't have a picture for thanks to finishing this post from a car in Cornwall. That is a cat. Being a cat can be the easiest costumes ever, simply buy a set of ears ( which should be easy to get your hands on at the moment thanks to it being so near to Halloween) and also grab an eyeliner. Draw a small black nose  and a few whiskers and hey presto!! You're a cat.

What are your views on Halloween? Are you a fan or not?

                        Lots of love,

Halloween Nails.... Pumpkin Nails

Hello lovelies,

As it is getting towards the time of Halloween (not my favourite time of year but still) I thought I'd have a go at some Halloween nails. Yes they are very simple but they look affective I think.

                               


They are so simple to do they literally took two products, Models Own Beach Party as a base and a black nail art pen from my Rio Nail Art set that I have actually reviewed on my main blog that you can see HERE.

What do you think of these nails?

     Lots of Love,

Hello lovelies,

So recently during a trip to Primark, I went to visit the home section. I love that you can find such little gems for bargain prices. Whilst I was there, I picked up this bad boy.

FOTD: Wedding Edition

Hello Lovelies,

Today I bring you a face of the day post, this one is a wedding based FOTD. Last week, I went to a family wedding and I decided to keep the make up neutral and simple. In fact so simple that I recorded a get ready with me video for it. This video won't be up for a while yet though, so I thought I'd show you all what I wore on my face on here first.


You might notice the background of this picture. Yes it was taken in the toilets of the venue.. I'm that classy. Anyway onto the face...

Base: Maxfactor 3 in 1 Foundation in Light Ivory
Concealer: MAC Prolong wear concealer in NW20
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte
Eye base: MAC Bare Study Paint Pot
Eyeshadows: MAC Naked Lunch and Urban Decay Toasted
Lips: YSL Rouge Volupte in Nude Beige


I have to say looking at this picture, I wish I knew how to fill in my eyebrows as they are rather bare looking.. help me fellow bloggers.

Tell me what you think of this look?
Lots of Love,
C

LIFE WEEK: the problem with romcoms

Hello lovelies,

Some of you might know that I am a massive romcom fan. 80% of my DVD collection is made up of romcom films, my favourite book genre is chick-lit (romcom's sister) and overall I love to see love.

Recently though I have begun to realise something, my look on life is warped because of my love for the rom com. So today I thought I'd explain two problems with the romantic genre as a whole.
