Ebay finds!

Hello everybody!

I haven’t done a beauty post for a while so i thought i’d do one today and since i purchase two items recently i thought it would be the perfect chance to do a post.

I’ve seen a lot of ebay find videos on youtube and they were quite popular, hopefully you guys enjoy my blog post! I purchased an eye shadow palette and four eye make up brushes, both of the products i am very pleased with. Anyways let’s get talking about them!

Okay, so the first item was this amazing 120 colour eye shadow palette. Now, unfortunately the postman did not read the fragile sign on the parcel and literally chucked the parcel through the letter box making two colours smash 😦 but i fixed them! I got the more neutral toned palette but you can get another, very vibrant version full of all the colours in the rainbow if you wish! This one was only £5.00 which i thought was amazing for the amount of colours you get, the quality is amazing too! All the colours are very pigmented and there’s both matte and shimmery colours! I’m really looking forward to see what looks i can create with this one!

The other item i got was these beautiful rose gold eye brushes, with white and pink hair. I am in love with these brushes, i love rose gold things and these brushes are just so pretty! And for the cheap price of £1.58 too! i was amazed! They feel good quality too, they’re soft but not too soft, the small one are a bit tougher which is exactly how you’d expect them to be. I really can’t wait to use these to create some pretty eye looks.

Hope you guys enjoyed my post, if you want the links comment below and i will send them too you and if you know of any good ebay bargains on make up then feel free to comment the links to me! I’m looking for a set of matte liquid lipsticks next!

Review: Pretty Little Liars Summer Finale

Hello, hows everyone doing?

Today was the summer finale for Pretty Little Liars, but fear not, the final 10 episodes EVER will be aired April 2017!

SPOILER ALERT!!!!

It was a very good finale with a lot of mixed emotions going around, here’s my thoughts on it. Firstly how crazy is Hanna? Going after Noel by herself, of course we all knew it wouldn’t go as perfectly as planned but wow Hanna! Also who’s idea was it to give the blind girl the gun?! We all knew trouble was to come after seeing Jenna Marshal walking round with a gun in hand trying to follow the liars round a dark and dusty old house. I’m extremely shocked that both Spencer and Toby ended up hurt…but are they dead?? I guess we’ll have to wait until next year to find out! But as we know, those who appear to die tend to have a way of come back *cough cough* Alison. I hope that they’re not dead and rather just extremely hurt because Spoby was a favourite of mine and we can’t have the final 10 episodes without them, can we?

Another complete bombshell was Mary Drake being Spencer’s mum?! I had suspicions but i never thought they’d really go there and i’m not sure it was a good move either. What do you guys think? And if noel isn’t the other child then what is his role in all this? Why does he hate the liars so much? So many unanswered questions still.

Overall i did find the episode very good and it had a high shock factor but one thing that really irritated me was how they’ve made Ezra completely forget about Aria once he saw Nicole, Ezria is a pair that has been shipped from the start and I think it’s one that should stay till the end…but i guess if things aren’t going to work out between them,Aria always has Jason to lean back on.

I could ramble on all day about the episode but then it would get boring, please let me know what you guys thought of it and mention any theories you have..i love hearing them!

Movie Review- Suicide Squad

Hi guys! Hope you’re all doing well and if any of you got your results today i hope you got what you wanted! I haven’t done a non make up related post in a while so i thought i’d do a movie review as i went to see Suicide Squad a little while ago!

For me, it was amazing i loved every second of it, the plot is brilliant, the actors are perfect and well who doesn’t love a little bit of insanity? Harley Quinn and The Joker were definitely my favourite but that’s because i like the psycho personalities that they have…i was a little bit disappointed to find that there wasn’t much of the Joker in the film as in the trailers he’s shown quite a bit and i wanted to see more of him and HQ together but at the same time i understand why the producers cut it out. It isn’t a film about the joker after all. 

BUT can we talk about Jared Leto as the joker? I thought he played it brilliantly, i mean let’s face it..the best Joker was Heath Ledger right? No one could play Mr J like Ledger so Leto had to take it in a different direction and it worked perfectly!

The actual composition of the suicide squad couldn’t have been better, they all have their own levels of crazy and they bring something different to the squad. I absolutely love the whole bad guys as heroes concept! I wish they had given Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) more lines though because his one liners had me in stitches!

Overall i think it’s definitely one you need to see, especially if you’re a fan of superheroes/villains, it’ll have you hooked right from the beginning!

5/5 from me, but i’d love to know your opinion! Feel free to comment below 🙂

Saturday Catch Up

Hello everybody! Sorry I’ve been a bit absent, I’ve had a LOT of stressful things going on! I thought I’d do a little catch up post so yeah!

I had my interview for my Uni course yesterday and I don’t think I’ve ever been so nervous! It’s been stressing me out because I wanted to make sure I had all the right stuff for it. I was worried that if I chose the wrong pieces of work then it would decrease my chance of getting in. Although they said it was a really good interview, I still had my doubts and then that leads on and activates my paranoia where I become sad because I don’t think it’s gone well. 

I think the most important thing to do in this situation is to just stay positive. Keep a positive mind because you don’t know what will happen, and it’s also a much healthier way of thinking. I have to keep telling myself this because,I don’t know my brains is just full of negativity sometimes. 

I also FINALLY got the email to say that my make up revolution delivery has been dispatched (YAY). Baring in mind their policy is that it takes 5 working days to be delivered..well mine was 10 so I was extremely happy to receive that message, as you can imagine! So that means that a mini hail should be up soon, when my package arrives! 

So yeah! This was my little post for you guys, what have you been up to? Comment below!

Until next time!

Award Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Answer the questions from your nominators.
  3. Nominate eleven other bloggers and give them eleven questions.

 

Her questions for me:

  1. What would be your dream job?

My dream job is actually to have my own clothing line, or to be a fashion designer if that’s what you want to call it. I don’t mean I was to be this ultra famous designer whose clothes cost most than a car, i just want to have a successful line 🙂

    2. Who inspires you?

This may sound a little soppy but my two  main inspirations are my mum and boyfriend, my mum inspires me to be strong and not let anyone ruin who i am and to always be myself. My boyfriend inspires me to never give up, even when things get tough.

   3. What’s your favourite song?

Oh gosh, now you’ve got me…I have sooo many i could never choose! One week it could be wildest dream by Taylor Swift and the next it could be Oh No by Bring Me the Horizon, i just can’t choose!

   4. Where in the world would you most like to travel to?

Well I’ve always wanted to go to Australia, its been my dream place to go since i was little but all the big spiders and bugs scare the life out of me! I have two others that i recently decided i really want to go to and that New York and Japan! 

   5. Which season of the year is your favourite?

If you had asked me this 10 years ago i would have said summer because that’s when my birthday is but my favourite season is actually winter, i love the feeling of winter. Though it’s cold, i love fashion in winter ad wearing cozy knit sweater and over sized scarves and drinking tea all the time!

   6. If you could have any superpower, what power would you have?

I’d quite like to be able to play with time, freeze it or go back. I’m always complaining that time goes to fast!

    7. What makes you smile?

Things that make me smile? Hmm, my boyfriend, seeing other people happy, spending time with family (sometimes :D)

    8. What is your favourite thing about blogging?

My favourite thing has to be meeting new people and connecting with everyone. I don’t do it for the most reads and likes. I love interacting with everyone!

   9. What is your favourite dessert?

Well this is easy! Hot chocolate fudge cake with ice cream and chocolate sauce! LOVE IT.

  10. If you could change your blog name to something else, would you? If so, to what?

I don’t think i would, I’ve already changed them recently. However originally I wanted it to be LunarSparkles but it was taken 😦

   11. What is your favourite book/film (or both)?

Again this is hard because i’m such a film person and i love reading. I did however LOVE Paper Towns by John Green, the movie not so much..My favourite movie would be way to hard to pick!
