How tall are you?

5 foot 9!

Do you have a hidden talent, if so what?

I’m secretly wonder woman. Lol. Don’t we all wish that was true. I find that people always confide in me, suppose that’s sort of a talent right? Something I’m good at, listening.

What is your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

When people unfollow you when you follow back. I do this because I love it, love sharing my story & getting to know people. It’s not all about numbers!

What is your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

Eating with your mouth open! C’mon, I don’t want to see what you’re eating!!😅

What is your favourite way to spend your free time when you are alone?

Alone with the baby, never get actual alone time any more. Been loving watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S again & love watching makeup videos on YT!

At the moment, chocolate!! Mmmm.

If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Fresh orange juice, love it, it’s so refreshing & tasty

The new wonder woman film. She’s so beautiful, yet strong. How we as women should all look at ourselves.

What were your favourite lessons in school?

IT (information technology), it was super easy. Haha.

What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

Hmm, there’s so many. Love so many different blogs. Everyone?😄😍

Who is your biggest inspiration?

Taylor Swift has always been such an inspiration to me, loved her for years. She seems so down to earth. Also, Sinead of The makeup chair on YT; she’s gorgeous & so talented. Been a fan for a while, learnt so much from her.

What is one of your favourite highstreet shops?

Primark. Definitely, can get so much for so little. Love it.

Are you in education or work?

Work. Have my own makeup business & hoping to further my skills by doing a mua course! It would mean a lot if you’d come show me some love & like my Facebook page & join my makeup group 🙂

What are your favourite fiction and non-fiction books?

To be honest. I haven’t read in ages. Just don’t find time! I used to love reading though need to get back in to it. Suggest me some fab books please🙂

First Impression Friday

First Impression Friday: Ardell Demi Wispies ❤

Hi beauties. 🌞

After hearing so many good things about these Ardell ‘Demi Wispie’ lashes I purchased a pair. That was about a year ago. They’ve been sat in my makeup draw waiting to be used, & finally I decided it was time.

CUE A FIRST IMPRESSION FRIDAY!!!

image

I started off by applying some of the lash glue, already provided, to the band of the lashes (pictured below!!!).

I waited a few minutes for the glue to go tacky, then using my tweezers (they’re easier and smaller than using fingers!) I maneuvered the lashes so they sat on my lash line. Trying to get them as close to the lashes as I could without sticking the falsies to my real lashes.

image

Once you’ve got the hang of it, its not too hard, but I’m not kidding you,  I probably spent about 20 minutes fiddling with the first pair trying to find the best and easiest way to get them on.

image

However, once you get the first of the lashes on you can see an instant & dramatic difference. For someone who has quite long lashes naturally I wasn’t expecting too much. I would definitely repurchase!!
But as you can see from the picture above they really do make a difference!!

image

I really do see why everyone loves these lashes so much. They are just like real lashes, in how they feel and look. They are so high quality, I can see them lasting a good few wears! 🙂

It’s safe to say I won’t leave my lashes at the bottom of my makeup draw anymore!!

Have you tried these or any other false lashes? What did you think? ❤

Lots of Love Natasha

MOTD ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

Recently I’ve been loving a simple eye makeup look with a bright red lip.

The red lip of choice has been Topshop Screen Siren; forgot how much I loved this colour! 😍

image

I just did my normal foundation routine,  updated foundation routine using Bourjois Healthy Mix coming soon! 🙂

This Topshop lippy applies so beautifully & effortlessly,  its an easy red you can just throw on!

*side note*
I’m seriously hoping for the sun to come back out here in the UK, so I can wear this cute dress I bought for holiday last year..

Tan is Dove Summer Body in light medium!

Have you tried any Topshop lipsticks?
What did you think? ❤

Weird but wonderful!♥

Hi Beauties ☼

Recently I have struggled with my skin, in particular my legs, they have been so dry & when I try to shave they’re so itchy!! BUT. I have finally found a solution.. what is this saviour I hear you ask? Mens shaving cream. Yes, I know it’s for shaving anyway, but most people don’t usually think to use mens shaving cream (as there are brands that make it for women!). I thought well its great for the face so I’ll try it on my legs & it worked.

wpid-20150612_123821.jpg

I received this Dove Men + Care Sample with an order I made, but my boyfriend doesn’t clean shave so I stole it 😉 it turns out, its been well loved! At first I didn’t think it was going to do the job, as it is quite heavily scented with quite a musky ‘male’ smell, my skin doesn’t usually agree with highly scented products.

wpid-20150612_123856.jpg

It is pretty self explanatory in how you use it, it is a cream product you can use wet or dry, but I find it best wet as it creates a lather on the legs which leaves very very soft & smooth legs! YAAAAY!! 😀 I’ve also tried this on my underarms & other areas, it does wonders, it leaves the skin so silky smooth & soft, I just can’t get enough 🙂

After trying this male shaving cream I’m in the market for a good ladies shaving cream, let me which ones you guys like so I can try more! 🙂

Lots of Love Natasha
