A Day In York

A little over a month ago I took a trip to York with my parents and I got some lovely pictures all taken on my iPhone 5, which I had recently gotten. I was really impressed with the quality of the photos as my normal blog pictures are taken on my DSLR. Anyhoo here are the pictures and I hope you enjoy!

See you soon and stay insane!

April Favourites

I know I've been MIA recently but je suis back with an oldie but a goodie - a monthly favourites!

Dior Nude Skin BB cream

I got this for Christmas and I love it! Such a light base but gives a good amount of coverage for a BB cream. Yes it's expensive but it would be a nice treat for yourself for not crying at work if you had a bad day haha. A cheaper alternative is the Bourjois '123 Perfect' CC cream :)

L'Oreal Brow Artist Plumper

I can't stress how much I love this product! It gives my brows colour and texture so they don't look so 'fake'. It has an OK colour range but the brown suits me well. I would recommend taking off the excess like you would with a lipgloss because too much and it can get krispy like a donut (get it? No? Ok)

Sleek 'Face Form' Kit

I've been using this for a while and barely made a dint in it - excellent colour pigmentation! The blush and highlight are shimmery without being 90s tacky sparkle and for the price is so good. Bravo Sleek, bravo.

Una Brennan Cleansing Oil

I bought this on recommendation from Essie Button on YouTube and I agree with everything she said! It has a zingy citrus scent that leves your skin refreshed and plump. It takes off makeup very well, and no matter how tired I am it is faster than makeup wipes so it's a win win!

Umberto Giannini 'Curl Friends' range

If you have curly hair you know my struggle. You want to embrace the curls but they never look like the tousled tresses that you see on Tumblr. But alas I have found a shampoo, conditioner and hair oil that make my curls smooth and bouncy without weighing them down! Tumblr fame here I come.

Neutrogena 'Fast Absorbing' Hand Cream

I have v v v dry hands so something that is hella moisturising and doesn't leave my hands greasy is the perfect product for me. Also love the pump dispenser - makes it so easy so use!

Topshop Kohl in 'Hear Me Roar'

Speaking of 90s tacky sparkle, I bought a blue eyeliner so I can be so indie and cool. It stays on well and I love the two tones of blue that I like to blend for an ombré effect.

Marmalade of London 'Seville Orange & Clementine' Candle

Dis candle doe. If you don't like sickly sweet candles this is the one for you! It scent is fresh and makes me room smell nice without it even burning - so worth the price!

George Orwell - 1984

I am trying to become more cultural in my book selection instead of reading teen romance all the time (which ngl are still amaze). It's basically the concept of Big Brother and although I'm not finished I'm really enjoying it. The writing style is easy to read (unlike F Scott Fitzgerald u bitch) and well worth picking up!

Catfish and the Bottlemen - The Balcony 

I LURVE the album so much! It's got the right balance of chill songs and let's let our teenage angst out right this second songs; they play some of the songs at work and it makes me so happy and sassy.

So that is my monthly favourites! I hope you enjoyed them and comment below your favourites and if we have any the same. I will try to get back on the blogging hype because lets be honest I'm not busy really lol.

See you soon and stay insane!

Music Of The Month: January

Music is a passion of mine. I can't breathe without it. Not a day goes by when I don't plug myself into my little world where Ed Sheeran sings love songs to me, or I indulge in my teenage angst with the Prodigy. Because it's something I'm passionate about I want to share it with you so each month I'm going to tell you my top 3 musicians I've been loving. 

Ed  Sheeran - X

Words can't describe my love for this man. This album has the right balance of upbeat and mellow songs that take you on a journey through the album; each one can mean something different to each person. I saw him in October last year and he was the best live act I've seen - he's funny yet sincere and his voice is on point. My favourite song is 'Tenerife Sea', along with all of the other ones really. So, so beautiful.  

Saint Raymond EPs

They toured with Ed Sheeran and I've been obsessed ever since. I recently bought their EPs (they don't have a full album out yet) and they're so so good! They're quite dancy and always put me in a good mood so definitely a one to check out.

Shannon Saunders EPs 

Another one who doesn't have a full album out yet but I'm really excited for. I can't remember how I found her but her voice is just so smooth and I love her tone. She's amazing at the guitar but also does some more electronic stuff. 

Any new recommendations would be much appreciated so leave them in the comments below! 

See you soon and stay insane!

5 Things for 2015

I don't plan to make resolutions this year, more goals. With resolutions I tend to be negative and set things that start with 'don't' and 'stop' which makes them harder to achieve. So today I am going to set 5 goals that may (or may not) actually carry through.

1. Go to university

2. Push myself to do new things

3. Be a little bit less bitchy

4. Try to find my style (both fashion and art)

5. Find a sport or exercise that I enjoy

Let's see if this works yeah?

See you soon and stay insane!
