Valentine’s Day Special Surprise- Things to do in London this weekend

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 1 views
10-original-ways-to-celebrate-valentines-day

Hi, how are you today? I hope you are having a really good week so far? The daunting Valentine’s Day celebration is just days away. Those who are not in relationships tend to feel left out. I just want to bring you this post to give you a few ideas to help you get through the day. 

First, you need to take the day like any other typical day. Dwelling on the fact that you’re single won’t make you feel better. Go out and have fun either by yourself or with another single friend. Valentine’s Day is just one day! Go shopping, retail therapy always helps… or you could stay in and watch your favourite movies; have a movie marathon…. or you could have a pamper day, do your nails, take a long bath with candles, put on a face mask…..treat yourself to a day of relaxation.  
Here are a few things happening around London this weekend. 
Anti-Valentine's Day Party

Anti-Valentine’s Day Party
As the name suggests. This is a strictly no couples, no PDA event; Basically if you want to something to help you ignore this day then head on down. Something perfectly concocted for the single. You never know, you may meet that special someone whilst enjoying an extra garlicky pizza lol 🙂
Singles Lock And Key Party Adventure

Singles Lock and Key Party
It’s a looks like a speed dating. The basic idea; all the men at the party are given a key that fits a padlock. All the women are given padlock. You’ll have to find your partner. There’s an after party as well. Sounds very bizarre but kinda fun way to meet new people.
Scared To Dance
Nostalgic night clubs featuring DJ’s, playing indie, pop, post-punk and new-wave.
Silent Disco at The View from The Shard
Pick your channel and choose your side as three DJs battle it out over separate wireless channels, playing the best in pop, rock and party classics, while you dance the night away at 1,000ft.
Broken Hearts and Promises

Broken Hearts and Promises
A Valentine’s Day themed pop-up party in Central London Townhouse featuring disco, cocktails and photobooth and the screening a ‘True Romance’

First Ever Topshop Beauty Budget Buy

By Posted on 2 Comments 4 min read 1 views
 

Hello there! How are you today? With the sale still on it’s last legs, I did some online shopping about a two weeks ago.I ended up getting a few bits and bobs from the Topshop website. I know I haven’t done a lot of makeup or beauty related posts on here, so  I thought this might help. This is also my first ever makeup and or beauty purchase from Topshop and I love love everything I have ever bought from them so far.
Please scroll down and see my views on the recent purchase.
Matte Lip Bullet in Get Me Bodied-Purple
What can I say about this Lip Bullet…. it is meant to be matte. I feel this is more or less the same finish as the Rimmel London Lipstick by Kate Moss. 
What  I loved about this is the colour. I really like purpley colour and I feel it really compliments my skin tone. I have some many and I thought why not add to the collection lol!! I also loved the finish which is not too matte and drying, for me on my lips it felt kinda moisturising. One minor turn off; though, this Lip Bullet is easily transferred on the stick (I think it’s the stick). I hope you get what I mean.
How to use this product: You can use this directly from the stick or you can use a lip brush if you prefer.
Cream Blush in Afternoon Tea- Pink
When I saw this blush online, I thought to myself  yeah, why not! This will go really well with the make-up collection. I really liked the fact that it was a creamy blusher. This was one of the products I was looking forward to trying. I opened this the very same day I received it. As you can see from the picture, I have been using this. I really love using this as my daily blush lately. It gives me a very subtle yet natural flush on the cheeks once blended. It is not very pigmented for darker skin tone, so you’ll need to add a two to three more layers to see the colour on my cheek. 
How to use: You can use your fingers to apply or I use my real techniques blush brush (you can use your prefered brush to apply)
Mint Carmex Lip Balm

It has been really cold, snowy windy weather outside and my lips had started to suffer. I usually use my Elizabeth Arden Eight hour Cream on my lips (yes you can also use it on your lips). I wanted something a little more versatile that I could use with gloves on so I bought this. I like the cherry flavoured one in the tub. I like this  Lip balm  because helps to moisturise the lips and it also has spf… I do find the minty smell a little overpowering at first but I am use to it now.

 Waterproof Liner in Gunpowder – Gunmetal

I am literally the girl who loves her black eyeliners. I have so many and I keep wanting to buy more. I have the odd brown liner but no greys. So this was the perfect test product for me. I like it’s shininess and it feels really smooth when I apply this. This is perfect for liner for a night out or you could wear this during the day; It is so on trend right now. I can’t really say if it’s waterproof or not because I haven’t tested it for that soz.
I can’t think of nothing negative to say about this liner. For me it is the ideal candidate. It is easy to use, has glitters and is meant to be waterproof, what more can a girl ask for!!

 3D Curve Mascara – Black

How big is that brush? I have been loving using this mascara lately. I love how big the brush is and it is very easy to use and very affordable.
How to use: After curling your lashes, apply mascara on lower lashes and then apply on top lashes. This will stop your mascara from transferring on your lid.
Matte Nails in Double Denim-Blue

If you follow me on instagram you will know that I absolutely love this polish. It’s matte nails and denim blue which is totally in right now. Love it! Love it! Love it!!. Definitely worth a try.
Overall verdict on Topshop beauty products; It is very affordable, worth the money and I will recommend you give them a try. I will be buying a few more products to try out.

Gisele Bündchen Covers March British Vogue

Gisele graces her fourteen British Vogue cover this month. She shows off her cleavage on this month’s issue, wearing a suede shirt from chanel, suede belt Ter & Bantine, hair by Christiaan and makeup by Lucia Pica . Inside the magazine, the 34 year old supermodel shares with us her life as a mother and on being the world’s highest paid supermodel.

Throughout her career, she has represented hundreds of brands, from lucrative contracts with Pantene and H&M to walking the runway for Pucci to Prada not to forget her recent campaign for Chanel No.5. Then there’s also her ever growing lingerie business Gisele Bündchen Intimates, which was launched back in 2011. She says that there’s a “bit of superwoman” in us all but as this model, mother and business woman has shown some are more well equipped than most at it.

Gisele prides herself on being a mother first and foremost. She calls her kids ‘my little sunshines” and on being a mother she says “I’m very nurturing, I come from a large family and my parents were loving. But the most important thing for me as a mum is to keep my word,” she said. “When I say no, I mean no. I always say they have all the time in the world to sit there saying, ‘I want it, I want it,’ but they are smart, and if I give in to them they know they can get away with it.”
On knowing her husband Tom Brady was the one, She told Vogue: “I knew Tom was the one straightaway. I could see it in his eyes that he was a man with integrity who believes in the same things I do.”
The supermodel also admits that she is happiest with her family whilst surrounded by the great outdoors. She says “My earliest memory was going to my grandma’s house, milking the cows and collecting the eggs from the chickens,” she explains. “If I could choose, I’d be bare feet, with animals all around me and living in a tree house. Like Tarzan and Jane, that’s my dream. I’m at my happiest around nature.”
Gisele insists that she separates her private life from her public one. She tells Vogue  “I’m a model as a job, I’m Gisele, the daughter of Valdir and Vania, I’m a woman, I am a model. When I go home and shut the door, that’s it. If I want to expose something, it should be my choice,” 
The March Issue is out Now! Also available on iPad and iPhone for digital download.
