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.

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!

Blog Goals // 2016

Before NYE I was thinking about my general resolutions and goals for the new year. It made me think about what I wanted for my blog too because you’ve got to have plans right? Otherwise there’s no point in doing it. I’ve seen a few people do a blog goals post so I thought I’d share mine with you!

My main goal is to reach a wider audience, this isn’t for any fame reasons just purely because I’ve always wanted to have a wide range of people who I comunicate, I love reading the comments that are posted and I love helping people out so the wider the audience the more I can do this!

Another goal would be to make my post as interesting and creative as I can, I want to make sure that people want to read the post rather than seeing and scrolling bye, I want to be able to relate to everyone who reads it. 

I guess I mainly just want to improve all aspects to make it a bigger,more interactive place, I really hope I can do this because my blog means a lot to me!

I also want to know what your blog goals are! Share them below! 

(If you don’t have a blog then share some of your general goals for this year!)

My Christmas haul 2015

Hello everybody! I hope you’ve all had a good Christmas an are excited for the new year! I thought i’d share a few bits that i got for christmas and love, in a mini christmas haul! 

Before i start i just want to make it clear that this is not me trying to brag in any way i just thought i’d do a post showing some of my beauty bits i got as a few people requested it, i do not want to offend anyone!

So first of all I got two Make Up Revolution pallets that i wanted really bad! I got the Give Them Nightmares one and the Smokey one, i haven’t got swatches of them but if you want me to do a swatches and review post the comment below or like! But from what I’ve tried all the colours are very pigmented! Make Up Revolution is a perfect brand for affordable high quality products, definitely worth a look!

As you can probably tell, in the Give Them Night Mares One (above and top right) there are 12 shimmery colours and 6 matte colours, I think this is perfect because it allows you to create some really nice looks! 🙂

I then got some tinted lip glosses from a brand i’ve never heard of but it’s a like a cheaper brand but it still has good quality…if that makes any sense! 

The colours very from red to light pink which are quite nice, they’re quite pigmented in the sense that they’re not sheer, apart from the pale pink which provides a subtle tint..i prefer it that way but some people might not! I was really happy to get these anyway because i’ve been into lip products lately and not i can play with the colours and see what suits me best 😀

I was also given a pack of pencil eye liners from the same brand, there were four in a pack and were all different colours!

From the swatches i took, they seemed good quality, i don’t think i’ll use the goldish one, but i could use the brown  one as an eyebrow pencil instead! This was a good present for me because i always use pencil eye liner and there are constantly running down so i can never have too many!

Finally, it’s not a beauty product but it is to do with beauty, i got an acrylic make up organizer which i was actually already looking into buying but im glad i was given one! I didn’t actually realise how much i needed this until i had it! haha it’s a life saver!Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset So these are a few of the bits i got for christmas i highly recommend the two palettes! Show me what you guys got! i want to know 😀 

Until next time!

3 Little Facts About Me

3 days till Christmas, is it me or is it going slow??! Hopefully it goes fast now because i am so excited i can’t even explain!

So todays list, is just 3 littles facts about me. I also just wanted to say i was thinking of doing a Q&A around christmas or boxing day, if you think you’d be interested in reading it then like this and if you wish to ask me anything you can comment below! 

  1. I have 4 siblings, 3 brothers and 1 sister, 3 of them are under 5 years old so yes my life at home can get a little interesting and chrsitmas is always great. They can be extremely annoying but you know, what would siblings be if they werent annoying every now and then?
  2. I am starting up my own online clothes shop hopefully next year so you guys should definitly keep an eye out because of course i’ll give discount codes to followers
  3. Finally, i know these havent been very interesting but i realised i’m not much of an interesting person. I am a tv series addict, honestly when i find a really good series i just binge watch it till i get sick of it or till i finish it and become upset- sad i know but that’s the cycle of my life haha! Currently I love pretty little liars, but i’ve finished so i’m waiting for the next half of the season to come out, i also loved gossip girl and I’m currently on vampire diaries!

 

So these are my little facts about me, not very interesting but still. The next post will be up tomorrow! 🙂

Sincerely, S x
