FAIRYDROPS PLATINUM MASCARA WATER PROOF TYPE.


I love mascaras that have a comb style brush because they really get the mascara onto my short and straight lashes. The larger and thicker the brush tends to be the harder it is to get mascara on my lashes, causing to completely miss and end up around my eyes. This FAIRYDROPS mascara has a completely different brush altogether. It has three 'bobbles' that really adapt to the eye shape to evenly deposit the mascara onto eyelashes.

I don't have the most curliest of eyelashes but with the help of an eyelash curler and this mascara I find that it really does lift the lashes for the majority of the day. It lengthens my eyelashes without leaving clumps and I find they have a lot more of spidery and fanned out effect.   

I love how gentle this product is on the eyes and eyelashes. It feels light weight and barely there whilst making my eyes stand out. It lasts throughout the day and makes my lashes look fabulous. 

This mascara claims to be water, sweat and tear proof, as well as being OK for the ocean and pool. Being so strong against these elements I find that it's incredibly easy to remove!

L'OREAL COLOR RICHE COLLECTION BLAKE'S PURE RED.


Firstly, congratulations to Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds on their pregnancy! I'm so excited to see what beautiful babies this couple produce!

Can I also just say how hard it was to get my hands on this lipstick. I saw it once at my local Boots and thought to myself I'd get it later because I had already spent so much money. However, when I was ready to purchase it I couldn't find it anywhere, I went to 3 different Boots stores, online and Superdrug stores and they had completely sold out! After visiting Boots everyday for a week during my lunch break I finally got my hands on it.

It's no wonder it sold out, it's such a vivid and pigmented red. This shade is perfect for dressing up a casual outfit in the day or making a statement with a LBD in the evening! There is some transfer but the colour lasts throughout the night and I only needed one touch up.

I love how posh L'Oreal's Color Riche Collection lipsticks look, I love how gold and black go so well together. They really do look like high-end but are so affordable!

L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Blake's Pure Red £6.99. Available to purchase here.

BIRTHDAY BRUNCH.


 My little sister turned 19 the other day, not so little anymore! She insisted she wanted to have pancakes for breakfast at Rugby's recently opened Bacco Lounge! 

Bacco Lounge has a very vintage style with a relaxed atmosphere. It is a unique space that has been turned into an individual and charming place to have a coffee and some food! It's very spacious and I like that because sometimes I just want to be left alone. I love the unique mix of furniture that don't quite match but they do. (If you understand my thinking lol).

I had the triple stacked buttermilk pancakes with sweet cured streaky bacon. The bacon was amazing! It was super crispy and sweet, exactly how I imagine the Americans to serve it! My little sister had the same pancakes but with passion fruit, strawberries, peach sauce and Greek yogurt. She has such a sweet tooth all day and ended up having a headache from all the treats she had! My eldest sister had eggy bread stack and bacon drizzled with golden syrup. When our food arrived I was honestly skeptical that I was still going to be hungry afterwards but I was surprised that I felt extremely full. Even as I felt that I couldn't finish it it was so delicious that I had to!

It's a little pricey but the food is on par that you will agree that it's money well spent!

I highly recommend you to visit Bacco Lounge because you won't be disappointed!

YES TO CARROTS MOISTURISING EYE CREAM.

 before
after

I haven't heard of Yes to's product range before until I went to Boots. I loved how cute and organic looking their packaging is. I was really attracted to the carrot range the most. Each range is specially formulated to different skin types. The Yes to Carrots is for normal to dry skin.

I don't really have a problem with eye bags, dark circles or ageing skin but I wanted an eye cream that could refresh my eyes and make them look brighter. This product is made to smooth and hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes and leave them moisturised, refreshed and soft. I've been using this eye cream for 2 weeks now, following the instructions to dab gently morning and night, and I can definitely say that they feel smoother and revitalised!

Yes to Carrots Moisturising Eye Cream £9.99. Available to purchase here from Boots.

FIVE GUYS - BIRMINGHAM.

Medium Five Guys style fries
Medium cajun fries

The upscale burger is the new fast food. People don't seem to be settling with drive-thrus and simple burgers but instead are opting for a fancy, more elaborate burger. Bring on Five Guys, a burger masterpiece with its price tag but none of the frills. Five Guys has just opened a new restaurant in Birmingham's Bullring and day 3 of it's arrival I had my taste of what they had to offer. 

I tried the bacon cheeseburger with pickles, lettuce and mayo with a side of cajun fries. I was sharing the fries with my sisters so they ordered the five guys style fries so that we could try both. Note that the medium sized fries is actually pretty large and it is definitely for sharing! I really loved the Five Guys Style fries but found the cajun fries to be over salty and spicy. My burger was average, it had two beef patties sandwiched between pickles, lettuce and mayo in a bun. They are filled to the brim, literally, it's not the most appealing food especially as when you unwrap it out of its foil and dig in you create a mess. A burger even without fries should fill you up.

My favourite part was definitely the Coca Cola Freestyle dispenser. I'm trying to cut down on the amount of fizzy drinks I consume but the vast choices of flavours makes this very hard! I just want to try all the different flavours and make new combinations. 

 It has a very american feel when you're eating in the diner and you can see that Five Guys are not modest in their fame with press and reviews framed on their walls. I actually enjoyed the loud atmosphere and felt that it was a lot more casual and therefore more fitting for a burger chain.

It is very expensive for fast food especially when comparing to McDonalds but compared to Handmade Burger Co it's all relative. I do think it's extremely overpriced and I can see that haters are gonna hate and fanboys are going to worship.
