Day Out at Standen House and Gardens with the Family

Hi, My day at Standen House and Gardens which is owned by the National Trust it was absolutely amazing and I really enjoyed it. There was so many interesting things to see and it was so enjoyable and was such a great day spent with my parents, my brother and my grandparents. Also with my cousin that I have not seen since I was about four years old and was so great to get to know her and to have a catch up as we have a lot in common. Everyone from my family really enjoyed visiting Standen House and Gardens. I loved the William Morris exhibition they have on at the moment as I am a massive fan of his art work.

Standen House and Garden is such an amazing place and is so beautiful. There was so many photo opportunities as you can see below and also I took some great photos to look back on to remember the day. These are a few of the photos I took as I tried my new camera out which I absolutely love. I absolutely love photographing flowers and there were some beautiful flowers there as you can see. Also a bit of a funny story, My cousin , brother and I went to see the gardens as I can not remember ever seeing them and also I wanted to take some photos of them so I did and also oh my gosh I saw real pumpkins growing they were massive never seen any pumpkins that are that massive. But i just went off topic lol and so the three of us went into gardens and then we were talking so we carried on walking through a wood and at one point we thought we were lost and my mum phoned to see where we were and we were like in the woods. haha and then luckily a couple of walkers came past and luckily they could give us directions as they were local and knew the woods so we took their directions. But honestly i would definitely recommend visiting Standen House if you get the opportunity to go.

Thank you so much for reading my blog it honestly means so much to me and hope you enjoyed it and if you have not already seen there is also a vlog to go with this about Standen house which is some videos and has some different contents to this.

My Hair routine

My Weekend at Airbourne 2016

Day at the Warner Brothers Studio Tour in London

Hi readers of my blog,

It was honestly an amazing experience. I honestly did not think i would enjoy it as much as i did as i am not really a harry potter fan and only watched one of the Harry Potter films as both my brothers are massive Harry Potter fans. It was definitely worth the two hour journey it took to get there in a minibus with a group of 11 people which included one of my best friends which i was hanging out with through the whole tour.

It was a hilarious journey as we were listening to some absolute tunes . Everyone on the minibus was so excited to be going to the Harry Potter Studios. When we pulled up to the Warner Brothers Studio it hit us that we were really there and everyone got super excited which was so exciting.

When we got there we all took lots of photos of the statues outside the studio building and also of the outside of the building to treasure the memories which i have to say i took lots of photos so i could remember the amazing day i had with one of my  best friends. The first thing when we queued in a small queue luckily ( well it was much smaller queue than the one to actually get into the the first bit of the tour room) we had our bags checked for security reasons and had a body search to make sure you do not have anything you should not have with you which makes sense for everyone’s security.

The first thing we did to start the tour was that you go into a dark room which on the walls has screens which changes with different posters from around the world . You then have a narrator talking and making it interactive by asking questions to the audience which was great. Also they give you a bit of background information and really cool facts. You also hear interviews of the important people who were involved in the producing of the films which i found so interesting.

Then the funniest thing happened, i was standing with my boy best friend (a lot of people make the mistake of thinking we are a couple we are not but i find it funny when people do ) we went from the dark room to the room with a screen in which i will call the cinema room as it looked like a cinema. We walked into the cinema room and we were the first people to go into the cinema room and to sit down and all of a sudden i hear from one of the guides say ” perfectly demonstrated by that lovely couple who are the first to sit down” which they were aiming at me and my boy best friend  which was hilarious but embarrassing too but i know it was aimed at us as we were the only ones sitting down.

So then when everyone was sat down the guides welcomed to the Harry Potter studios and made everyone so welcome and then a video started up on the cinema screen and that had interviews on ( i do not want to give too much away) and then it finished. The cinema screen came up and the audience were greeted by the guide and were taken over to this massive door which little did i know led to the great hall which was absolutely amazing ( Sorry for the spoiler for anyone who has not been to the studios already) . I took the amazing opportunity to take lots of photographs so that i could have them to remember and lots of selfies of me and one of my best friends.  i took so many photos on the tour.

So we walked round the studio tour and there is a interactive wand experience where you have to copy the gestures which i was absolutely rubbish at and probably looked ridiculous but luckily i did not know anyone there and the group we went with were in front of us on the tour and obviously my best friend was also doing the interactive wand experience actually they are the one that convinced me to do it and would not shut up about it so i did it for a quiet rest of the day hehe. But he was really good at it the interactive wand activity. Also to make it worse luckily they were strangers but they was a crowd watching which was super embarrassing.

The best thing i think about the tour was my first experience of trying butterbeer that when my cousins from America went about four years ago have been raving about and saying how good it was and they are massive Harry Potter fans too and they said that it was an amazing experience. The butterbeer tasted so amazing i absolutely loved it it is definitely worth trying if you visit the Warner Bros . Studios London and i brought it in a souvenir stein so that i could remember it and the great experience it was that i had. I am so happy that i had the amazing opportunity to experience butterbeer.

I would definitely recommend even if you are not a harry potter fan that you visit the studios as it is a brilliant experience as i from personal experience can tell you that i want to read the Harry Potter books after going to the studios and also want to watch the films so i definitely think i am going to. This is not at all sponsored and is 100% my opinion and review of it but i will leave the link to the Warner Bros studio tour below so that you can check out the website. It is such a great experience and i definitely think i will come and see it again . It has so many amazing photo opportunities to enjoy and is encouraged. Also thank you so much for reading. Let me know what you think of this slightly different blog type to my usual blog and also comment below if you have been and your personal opinions and also feel free to share to share this blog with friends and family and comment your opinions of me vlogging as would be really interested to see what people think of that.

Trying New Products Out

Hi, 

I apologize for not uploading  this blog earlier but there was an technical issue which meant it was unable to be uploaded. 

I decided i would try some new products that i had never tried before and thought i would review them in this blog for you my audience. 

The first product i decided that i would try is the Barry M Coco Loco Lip Oil which i brought on a beauty counter in my local Tesco. The smell of this product is Coconut and I absolutely love the scent of this lip oil and it is such a delightful scent. The scent makes me think of a tropical beach which is lovely and hot. It is also a clear lip oil so it does not look like you are wearing anything on your lips. It is also perfect for putting as a base before putting lipstick and makes it feel better on your lips. The product is great quality and is perfect for putting in your makeup bag or handbag and is the perfect size for it. It is very nourishing on your lips too. 

The next new product i wanted to try was one that a lot of people are buzzing about online and i wanted to see what the buzz was about and the product i am reviewing is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Matte Lip in the shade Martha Moo. I absolutely love the colour Martha Moo . I saw someone wearing this shade of Lip Matte and I fell in love with the shade of it so i ordered it online  and I am so glad i did it definitely a Lip Matte I am going to use a lot more frequently as it is a natural shade. The consistency of this product is fantastic and i do not think that i would need to put another coat of this lip matte as it looks a lot better and you can use another coat of this lip matte but i do not think it is necessary.

 The next product I tried out was Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Waterproof Mascara . I love the way it makes my eyelashes look like they have more volume and I will definitely use this mascara when I wear my makeup as i love that it makes my eyelashes look fuller and longer and more visible looking. I absolutely love this product and will definitely be recommending to family and friends. 

Another product I tried was the Makeup Gallery  Brown 4 Kohl Me Beautiful Soft Kohl Eyeliner. I know it is an Eyeliner but it would work as well as an Eyebrow pencil and helps to fill in Eyebrows and makes them look amazing on your Eyebrows and looks great and this would be a great Eyebrow product. 

​The next product that I tried was the Barry M Berry Good Lip Oil. It is a very lovely colour of natural pink in the packaging but you cannot tell you have it on your lips and the berry smell is so good. I will definitely be buying this product again as the quality of this Lip Oil is great and so natural . Also the Lip Brush moves angles for easier application.

Next product is the Cien Lipgloss in the shade 39 Fairytale. It is such a natural shade but I am not sure it is my shade unfortunately.But it is a lovely colour just i do not think it suits me and my skin shade. 

 Next new product is The Liz Earle Light Reflecting Concealer is absolutely amazing and I am a massive fan of this product. As it does a great job of helping to hide the appearance of spots and also dark circles under my eyes and helps to hide the imperfections on my face. It makes me feel a lot better. 

Next new product I am trying is the Model Co Lip Lacquer in shade Morocco . I love the gloss effect of this Lip Lacquer and this gorgeous shade. I love this so much it looks like a natural shade and will be perfect for a everyday shade of lipgloss.

The second to last product that I am going to try is the Cien Lipgloss in the Shade Melon Kiss. This Lipgloss is a very subtle shade which is lovely and has a great shimmer to it and it is great on lips while also making a great lip colour for a natural looking makeup.

The final product to test is the No7 Skin Illuminator in the shade Pink. I love the brush with it as it helps with the application and makes it easier to apply while giving the skin a natural finish to the look you are going for and also When i tried the product I had foundation on and it went straight on top of my foundation and it looked great with it on and I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance this product gave to my face and would definitely recommend this product. 

Thank you so much for reading this blog hope you enjoyed it and I apologise again for there not being a blog Two weeks ago unfortunately could not be helped. The next blog should be uploaded on the 20th August. Let me know if you want different blog types for example Lifestyle, Days out etc and also let me know what you think of these blogs and whether you think I should start Vlogging and feel free to share this with family and friends who you think will enjoy reading this blog post and also remember to comment on what you think and also feel free to comment any makeup/beauty advice or questions you might have.

The Next product i am going to try is the Zoella Kissy Missy Lip Balm which is a bright pink colour lip balm i am not sure how this is going to look on me but i am going to try it on.

I tried it on the palms of my hands and oh my goodness it made my hands feel so soft and moisturized. I absolutely love the smell of the candy cream softening body lotion. i just cannot describe the smell but it is such a summery scent which is great especially for using in the summer. The smell is perfect for spring/ summer scent. 

Next , this is one i tried when i had a shower as it is a shower product which is the Zoella Soak Opera which i was super excited to try as heard such great things about it and i was not disappointed by this product it has such an amazing scent to it and also definitely a great product and one i would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Two products of the Zoella Collection that i cannot try on my skin as one is the Zoella Cosmetic purse which is going to be perfect for makeup and makeup brushes or even using a  purse for coins, notes and receipts and also i absolutely love the design on the cosmetic purse. It is very artistic and was designed incredibly well . I can not wait to use it. Also from the Classic range is the Zoella Blissful Mistful Solid Fragrance i just wanted to say that i love the packaging of this product because it is a heart shaped tin which is a perfect size for you handbag and for travelling with. 

The Next product i am going to try out is the Zoella Creamy Madly Dreamy body lotion  from the Classic range. The smell is absolutely gorgeous and i am so so happy with this product. My skin feels so soft using this and also moisturized.

The final product is one from Zoella’s latest range which is the Sweet Inspirations range. The product has the most sophisticated packaging and the product is the Zoella Double Creme Body Lotion. I absolutely love the smell of  it as the smell is of macaroons which is a delightful smell. It leaves your skin moisturized and leaves your skin super soft.

Everyday makeup and how I do my makeup !

 

Hi guys today, i am going to tell you about how i do my everyday makeup.

My top tip is to steam your face using a facial steamer every other day to open up your pores and also helps to get rid of spots. 

I always start by putting Aveeno Moisturising Lotion to my face to be the base layer of my face makeup and also i use Benefit the POREfessional as well to help minimise the appearance of pores. 

I then  put my foundation on whihc is Rimmel London Longing Lasting finish 25 hours with comfort serum in the shade “100 IVORY” full coverage foundationA tip is make sure to put foundation on the  face and neck to make it look more natural and for a more even coverage and also i use a makeup brush and  a beauty blender for blending the foundation into my face. 

Then i use the natural collection cover up cream the shade “Fair” to areas that i have blemishes and imperfections on my face. Then i blend it in with my foundation that already have on and i use a makeup blender for a more natural finish and to make sure it is an even coverage. 

Now time to start on my eyelash routine..

So to start my eyelash routine for my everyday makeup look i use Rapid Shield Eyelash Daily Conditioner to make my eyelashes look healthier and longer lashes. 

Then when i have done that i use Maybelline New York the CLASSIC VOLUM’ EXPRESS waterproof mascara on my eyelashes which makes it look a lot nicer and also more natural looking. I always make sure that i do not have any lumps  in my mascara as it is not very natural looking and i do not like lumps of mascara so i get rid of the lumps in the mascara. i use waterproof mascara so that if it rains or my eyes stream i do not need to worry about it streaming down my face. 

Now it is time to add a bit of colour to my cheeks so i apply Rimmel Londons Wake me up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch which is in the shade “Radiant Rose” which is a lovely natural shade. 

I put Balmi lip balm before putting on Tanya Burr exclusive collection by eye candy in the colour “Aurora” as it adds a great base to my lips. 

Then i apply Tanya Burr exclusive collection by eye candy in the colour “Aurora” which is a lovely shade of pink which is a shimmer colour and it is such a natural looking lipgloss. 

To finish out my face makeup i spray to my face NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray to make it last longer.

Hair Products i use or have in my makeup bag is:

-Hair Clips and hair bands

I also use everyday especially in the summer for my hair Mark Hill Holiday Hair cover up spray  for protection against colour fading and also i use Charles Worthington colour shield spray. 

Hope you enjoy my second makeup/beauty blog and let me know what you think of it and also leave any ideas that you want me to blog on and i will try my best to blog it. Any makeup brands/products you would like me to try and also you can contact me with any comments either down below in the comment section or by filling the form to the right hand side.
