FOTD: Greg Davies Comedy Gig

Hello Lovelies,

Long Time no see...
Sorry about the absence on this blog, nothing really interesting to report on why I haven't been on here more that I didn't really have anything to purposely blog about and as this is a blog that I can be more relaxed on, I thought it wouldn't be too bad if I didn't blog, I hope you don't mind.

Anyway, onto the post in hand, my face of the day. I rocked this look to see Greg Davies last weekend. I was quite proud of the look so I thought I'd share it with you all.



Base: Revlon Colour Stay in Ivory
Concealer: Maybelline the eraser concealer
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte
Blush: NARS Deep Throat
Bronzer: NARS Laguna
Eyeshadow: MAC Humid, Green Smoke and Swimming
Eyeliner: L'Oreal Superliner
Mascara: Benefit They're Real
Eyebrows: Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil and Maybelline Brow Drama
Lips: MAC See Sheer


What do you think? I personally love it.

Lots of Love,

How to make me enjoy Shakespeare

Hello Lovelies,

When I was at school, I despised reading Shakespeare in English lessons. I always found it tricky to understand and it always seemed that the plays that were picked never appealed to me or are just to over used (i.e Romeo and Juliet)

However recently I have grown a small fan of one Shakespeare play in particular and that is Much Ado About Nothing.

The image can probably explain why I love this play so much at the moment... Who doesn't love David Tennant? Then add Catherine Tate (which if you put together you have the makings of one of the best Dr Who pairs ever!!)

Anyway onto the play itself, this version was in the west end I want to say a couple of years ago and it is something I wish I had seen live. It is the original Romcom, the main characters Benedick and Beatrice from the beginning do not get on but it is obvious to everyone else they are in love with each other.

I won't talk too much but I will tell you where you can watch it. There might be other places to find it but I picked it up on Digital Theatre (link).

Lots of Love,
C

Starbucks Red Cups- my thoughts

Hello Lovelies,

So recently if you didn't already know Starbucks has released their red cups for Christmas. Everyone gets excited to see them as it indicates that the holidays are coming and it sends everyone into a frenzy.

Over the weekend, Starbucks had a deal in which you could buy one get one free, so I took advantage of this deal and I have now tried all four coffees. As I have tried all four I thought I'd give you a short rundown of what I think of them all.

Beverages

Orange Mocha: This coffee is just like drinking a Terry's Chocolate Orange and it smells like it too. I bought one on Friday and the whole way home my car smelt amazing. If you are a fan of chocolate orange you will like this one, plus there is next to no taste of coffee there.

Gingerbread Latte: This one is the one I thought would be one I would really enjoy but I found it a bit disappointing. There wasn't a great deal of taste to the one I had. I would say I prefer the Nescafe sachets which you can get HERE (plus they're cheaper).

Toffee Nut Latte: This one for me was the worst one of the lot. The smell as you bring the cup up to your lips is a very strong nut smell and the taste is mostly nut too. I didn't even finish this one as the taste just wasn't pleasant for me.

EggNog Latte: This one is the one that I thought I wasn't going to like. I have no idea what eggnog is  but the fact it had egg in the name made me wary. However, I think that this one was one of the nicest coffees of them all. It tastes just like a creamy sweet coffee.

So all in all, my favourites are the Orange Mocha and the Eggnog Latte. Have you tried any of the coffees yet? Which is your favourite?

Lots of Love,

In case you missed it

Hello Lovelies,

Another week through, which can only mean it is ICYMI time.

This post is a rundown of all the goings on on both this blog and my main blog, which if you didn't know is called A Bit of This and That,which if you haven't checked it out I'd love you to pop over and visit.


Here we go:

Monday: COLLECTIVE HAUL. I did a little shopping last month so Monday's post was all about what I have been purchasing recently. Why not check the haul out?

Tuesday: SHARE THE LOVE #2. Every so often on my second blog I like to share the love and introduce you to two bloggers that I love, this time was no different.

Wednesday: IDEA: Birmingham Frankfurt German Market Meet Up I think the title of this post gives away what my idea was. I'd love to have a meet up in Birmingham around Christmas with a few bloggers. What do you think of the idea?

Thursday: 13 BEFORE THE END OF 2013 TAG I made a list of 13 things that I would like to have done before the end of 2013 and made it into a tag. What would you like to do before the year is out?

Friday: MY POSSIBLE NYE DRESS Speaking of the end of 2013, I talked a bit about what my plans are for New Years Eve and showed you a dress which I think would be perfect for the night in question. What do you think?


For this week, that is all. 
Lots of Love

13 before the end of 2013....

Hello lovelies,

So I recently came up with an idea called 13 before the end of 2013. The idea is that between now and the end of the year, the 31st December, I would like these things to happen. I am going to tag people at the end of this and we'll see how far this can go as a tag.


So before the end of 2013....
  1. I would like to have 1000 GFC followers on my main blog, A Bit of This and That.
  2. I would like to have 250 subscribers on my YouTube Channel.
  3. I will find a leather style jacket that suits me and fits me.
  4. I will have helped to arrange a blogger meet up (fingers crossed)
  5. I will have arranged my make up storage in way that I am completely (even if I have to raid the Muji store in London)
  6. I will  hopefully have gone to the Clothes Show with a fellow blogger (P.S Lisa we still need to sort everything out).
  7. I will have recorded and put up a London vlog (this is if I can get the confidence)
  8. I will definitely have had a blogger date with the lovely Helen from Beautifully Superfluous.
  9. I will have attempted to get my skin sorted... its currently not in a good state.
  10. I would have liked to have visited the cinema again... I haven't been in so long.
  11. I would like to have visited a Wagamamas... I've never been to one.
  12. I would like to be able to say I understand how to use my camera (the Canon 600D)  & also have bought a remote for it.
  13. I would like to have recorded a collaboration video with another YouTuber/

So there are my 13 things I would like to do before the end of the year
I will tag:
  1. Helen - beautifullysuperfluous.blogspot.co.uk
  2. Lisa - lisahh-jayne.com
  3. Bex - www.ialwaysbelievedinfutures.com
  4. Laura - www.laurzrah.com
  5. Kat - talesofapaleface.com
  6. Grace - http://www.allthatslap.com
  7. Emma - meetthemillards.co.uk
  8. Louise - confettiletters.blogspot.co.uk
  9. Zoe - zoeliannex.blogspot.co.uk
  10. Islay- islaay.com
  11. Georgina -www.makeup-pixi3.com
AND anyone else that wants to have a go. I'd love to see other people's lists (to be honest I'm a bit of a nosey person and I'd like to read everyone else's responses.

Let me know in the comments if you have a go.

Lots of Love

Share the Love #2

Hello Lovelies,

So today I thought I would do another share the love post. The two blogs/bloggers that I have chosen to introduce to you today in my opinion had to be put together. You can't have one without the other and those to lovely ladies are.....


Lisa from Lisahh-Jayne

 photo lisahh_zps71b98e64.png

Lisa is the snapchat queen, if I go a day without having at least one snap chat from her, I feel a bit empty haha. Her blog is a beauty blog full of reviews, wishlists, NOTD and beauty rambles.

Personally, Lisa is a lovely lady always available for a chat or a get together. I just wish she didn't live so far away from me.


Bex from Futures

Futures.
Bex is a lovely lady I have had the pleasure of meeting in real life once and I can't wait to see her again. She, like Lisa is someone I know I can go to with a problem big or small. Her Header which is above explains on the tin what her blog is. I love it and her.


Have you ever checked out their blogs?

Lots of Love

In case you missed it...

Hello Lovelies,

This post is a rundown of all the goings on on both this blog and my main blog, which if you didn't know is called A Bit of This and That,which if you haven't checked it out I'd love you to pop over and visit.


Here we go:

Monday: My Favourite Face Brushes this post was supposed to come with a video, the video then went live all fuzzy and horrible so I deleted it and re-recorded it yesterday. The link should now be working so check it out. What are your favourite brushes?

Tuesday: My Blogging Space in this post, I showed you where I do most of my blogging and asked the question where do you write your posts?

Wednesday: Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate Review this post does what says on the tin. It was a review of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate. Have you tried this shade yet?

Thursday: Easy Halloween Outfits I might have mentioned it before but I am not the biggest fan of Halloween, however I did think of a few simple outfit ideas, which I shared with you all. Did you dress up for Halloween?

Friday: My Dream Handbags we can all dream about owning pretty things, well in Friday's post I talked about all of my dream handbags. What is your dream handbag?


For this week, that is all. Tell me in the comments whether you enjoy the catch up posts of the week or not? I thought it would be a good idea because you never know if you might miss something.

Lots of Love,
