“Brow Zings”: My Complete Godsend

I hate my eyebrows. Like, actually hate them.

I always have and unfortunately I didn’t exactly help the situation…

When I was younger I had quiet dark bushy eyebrows. I never had a mono brow, just lots of hair each side that looked pretty scruffy. Obviously it didn’t bother me when I was little, but when I became a teenager it became an issue for me.

I had started comprehensive school and I (the totally un-cool girl) had to compete against the cool girls; Known as “The Plastics”. (Unsure of what I mean? Go and watch Mean Girls! It’s a must-watch movie).

So.. one night I closed my bedroom door and decided to get the tweezers out (which I obviously borrowed from my older sister). It hurt, but it felt great. I plucked and plucked away until I had thin eyebrows just like all the other girls. I loved it! The thing is, I didn’t even realise back then that ‘shape’ mattered. I thought as long as they were thin then I was safe.

Now, lets forward 6 years..  Continue reading


My Primark Haul!

I’m the kind of girl who finds it pretty hard to resist buying cute girly things I see in shops, so when I walked into the new Primark this morning, I found it quite hard to control myself! In my town, Primark has recently upgraded from a two floor shop to a five floor shop, therefore it is now HUGE! I was having a browse and I fell in love with so many cute things, such as cute girly pillows and candles in the home section, Disney pj’s, make up bags… the lot!

I’m trying to budget myself at the moment. In fact, I am a lot of the time. Whenever I see things I want, I always question myself first “Do I really need it?”. Usually the answer is no and I manage to walk away with my head held high, forbidden to look back.

I was quite successful in doing that when I went into Primark this morning, but there was a few things that I just couldn’t resist. I asked myself “Do I really need it?” and answered no. But then, I looked at the price and thought “Well, it’s only a couple of pounds – it isn’t going to hurt my bank account too much, is it?”, and again, I answered no. Therefore I came out of the store with a big smile on my face seen as I treated myself at such a little price.

Here’s what I got! 🙂 Continue reading

A make-up comparison – Beauty Guest Post by Alice

Today, I wonderful guest post by Alice to share with you! I hope you enjoy the post, and head over to visit Alice’s blog afterwards – agdoesmakeup.blogspot.com.

Hello everyone! I’m Alice from agdoesmakeup.blogspot.com and in a nutshell I’m a teenage makeup addict/shopaholic.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for a rather long time, you’re aware that Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette is considered holy grail in the beauty blogger community, as it’s a covers-all-needs neutrals eyeshadow palette with matte and shimmery shades. Despite the time since it’s launch, the palette has remained at the steep price of £37.00, urging some drugstore brands to come out with dupes. Out of the few drugstore alternatives I’ve swatched, MUA’s Undress Me Too palette appears to be the closest match.
Lots of bloggers have mentioned MUA’s Heaven and Earth palette as a dupe, too.

My Beauty Tag

A couple of days ago, the lovely Karine tagged me to do the ‘Beauty Tag’ and I have finally got around to doing it! So, a big thankyou to Karine for tagging me – remember to go and check out her fabulous blog here.

So, let’s get started shall we?

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners and lip product or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?

My palettes and eye shadows – I could just about live with that.

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

Hmm, never be able to cut it again I think! Although, I guess having different wigs would be fine too!

3. If you had $500, would you spend it on clothes or make up?

Clothes.. Definitely clothes.

“Eww, boys are smelly and gross”..to..”Woah, he is hot!” … Are girls growing up too quickly?

When I was twelve years old, I had no interest in boys, fashion, make up, or attention.

I was still a child. Boys were all “gross” and the talk of kissing them always made me say a typical young girls remark like, “eww, boys are smelly and gross”. I had no interest whatsoever in going clothes shopping and buying the latest fashion trends. The only time I would go clothes shopping was when I was literally forced to go with my parents. It was never a choice made by myself. The clothes I wore were plain, and typically something my mum got for me, because quite frankly, I didn’t really care what I wore. And why should anybody else care? Make up was always something I associated with grown ups. Other girls in my year at school began to wear eye shadow and a small layer of foundation, which then increased to a layer or mascara and some lip gloss as well. My hair would always be down – who cares that it was just hanging there? It’s not like I cared, so why should you?
