The Autumn Tag

Photo cred from TheGlobeInn
So after #bbloggers chat I had a cheeky follow to perksofbeingami blog and saw her do this Autumn Tag and thought I'd have a little go myself... 

1. Coffee - What's your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks or any other coffee shop?
I'm actually a tea or hot choccy person myself, can't stand coffee! Hand me a Costa hot choccy with cream and marshmallows any day!

2: Accessories - What do you opt for, scarf, boots or gloves?
I'm a big boots person, every year without fail I'll be rocking boots, same applies for scarfs really, I wear scarfs all year round they are my little comfort blanket, I feel weird when I don't wear one and I'm all wrapped up.

3. Music - What's your favourite music to listen to during Autumn?
My music doesn't really change with the seasons, I just listen to whatever I fancy depending on my mood and what I'm doing, I love blasting music when having a good clean, obviously Beyonce is always on the cards. *sassy emoji*

4. Perfume - What's your favourite scent for this time of year?
I absolutely love fruity scents all year round, when it comes to winter I normally go for a stronger scent but I've been loving Beyonce Wild Orchid and Katy Perry Royal Revolution recently, my god they smell so good!

5. Candles - What scents will you be burning this season?
I love warm christmassy scents but on the sweet side such as Yankee Candle Snowflake Cookie, mmmm.

6. What do you love best about Autumn?
I love layering, big coats, scarves, snuggling watching films with a hot chocolate and baggy clothes.

7. Favourite make up look?
Definitely full coverage foundation, dark lips and layers upon layers of mascara.

8. What are you looking forward to the most in the Autumn?
The lead up to Christmas and my BIRTHDAY, yeyyyy! (20th December).

Free From Frizz Shampoo, Conditioner & Six Week Blowout

Looking for a new shampoo and conditioner to de-frizz your hair? Well I've got just the thing for you! Free From Frizz very kindly sent me their Thick/Coarse Blowout Shampoo* and Conditioner*

Boots describe it as a range that uses cutting edge patent-pending technology to naturally smooth the hair from root to tip without a harsh chemical in sight.
I love that it tames my frizz as well as being really healthy and non-damaging for my hair, I do find it quite hard to foam up but I've read that harsh chemicals in shampoo make the lather so I don't mind using a little bit more to wash my whole head. The mango scent on both the shampoo and conditioner is absolutely beautiful and you can smell it after blow drying which is a plus. The shampoo is currently sold out on Boots online, which just shows that it's popular, you can find it here for £5.99! 

It's recommended to leave the conditioner on for 3-4 minutes, perfect if you need to shave your legs and to shove a face mask on at the same time, talk about a pamper! The formula is lovely and thick and creamy so the tiniest bit goes a long way, you can also find this in Boots, here for £5.99.

6 Week Blowout*
This is a product I've never heard of before, Boots online describe it as a treatment which contains two active combinations to boost the health of your scalp and hair; this technology gently softens the bonds in your hair and lock in frizz fighting active ingredients which gives you 6 weeks of frizz free hair. It retails at £14.99 and can be found online in Boots here, although it is currently out of stock.

Have you tried anything from Free From Frizz before? Is frizz a problem for you?

All products used are in the down bar, don't forget to subscribe, I'm so close to 1500 and I'd really appreciate it!

Where would you wear this look?

E.L.F Foundation Haul

I never thought foundation would be something I'd become addicted to, I always thought it was boring and lipstick was definitely my thing; but recently it has managed to take No.1 spot in my make up addiction, resulting to a full drawer alone of foundations. So when E.L.F. cosmetics contacted me to review some of their foundations, I absolutely jumped at the chance. If you watch my YouTube channel you will know I buy from E.L.F. myself and love the company, especially when they do 50% off sales, check out my latest E.L.F. haul here

The first thing, and a ultimate essential when wanting a perfect base is primer! Primer is made to prepare your face for foundation and prolong the wear too, some primers have addition properties, for instance, this Mineral Face Primer* £6.95 is multipurpose and has been developed to combat excess oil, flaky dryness, enlarged pores and fine lines to give a natural, long-lasting satin finish. This also comes in various shades such as clear, green, brightening lavender and radiant glow to further target problem areas.

The Flawless Finish Foundation* £7.50 is one I've previously used before and featured it in my E.L.F. Best & Worst Product's Video here and I'll have a Foundation Friday coming up at some point so don't forget to subscribe to be the first to see it! This foundation states to help prevent sunburn, restore uneven skin textures and tones as well as giving the appearance of visibly brighter skin with an oil free formula.

This foundation really excites me as I always use liquid products, so it'll be nice to try a powder formula for a change to see which one I prefer. Another exciting point is how the foundation has four sections with different colours in, meaning you can create your own custom colour that will match you all year long, talk about saving money! I received this Personal Blend Foundation* in the shade medium, there is a light and darker option available and it retails at £8.95.

Another foundation I've recently tried and loved, is the HD Mattifying Cream Foundation* £7.95 in the shade sand. If you have saw my E.L.F. Haul video then you will know I bought this foundation myself before E.L.F. contacted me so there will be an upcoming First Impressions video using the foundation I bought, but I'm so happy to have a back up now as this foundation is absolutely amazing for the price!

Have you tried E.L.F. products before? What are your must haves?

Beyonce Heat Wild Orchid

Blake well and truly knows the way to my heart, as some of you will know, I'm completely addicted to Beyonce. She recently released a new perfume to her 'Heat' range which I'm a huge fan off, there's not one fragrance from the range that I don't like and this one has topped the rest, it's absolutely beautiful! I was shopping in town with my Mum and spotted this baby in Superdrug and fell in love instantly, with one spray I was hooked, and Blake being the amazing boyfriend that he is, gave me the money to get the 100ml bottle and I got it the next day before starting work and I'm IN LOVE!

Her release before Wild Orchid was 'Rise' I believe, which was one I'm not fond of at all, I think it's for older women and is definitely not my cup of tea. However, Wild Orchid, is definitely my cup of tea with 2 sugars in it, with it's fiery, feminine energy I'd definitely go have a sniff if you like fruity/floral scents. Although, beware, you may get addicted too! Thanks for getting me this Blake <3

What is your favourite perfume?

Do I ever stop buying? Like honestly, I think I have a problem haha! Please bare in mind this has building up since January, I actually had someone ask me about my income and how I afford to buy what I do and I honestly don't know whether to respond to that question, is it something you'd comfortably talk about? Moving onwards, I really hope you enjoy this video, I love doing huge collective hauls as I love watching other people do them!

NARS - 2 Product Tutorial - Missed video #4

If I'm completely honest, I didn't really want to share this video on my blog as I'm not happy at all with the quality of it; however, when reflecting back it's nice to see how much I've improved on my videos so I thought why not. I'm proud of my progress on YouTube and showcasing old videos like this one, shows that there is always room for improvement and I've got a long way to go. What do you think?

Empties #2 - Missed video #2

Time for missed video #2, today's video includes all the products I've been using up and whether I'd repurchase them or not! I LOVE watching these types of videos as it makes me realise what type of products people love as it takes a lot to use something up completely; it also makes me realise what products I love and what I can't live without because I HAVE to repurchase before I run out. Here's what I've used up:

5 videos missed? What's happened?!

Hey lovelies,
So it's 00:52 Friday morning, I start work at 7 (the joys) and I'm sat looking through my blog and have came to the realisation that I've managed to miss sharing 5 YouTube videos with you guys. God knows how this has happened, but for those who aren't subscribed to me (well, why aren't you?!) then the next 5 blog posts are going to be just for you and will be the 5 videos that you've unfortunately missed out on. 

So when you see, for example, 'April Favourites' blog post in your 'To Read List' then don't fret, Bloglovin hasn't messed up and I'm not crazy, I just haven't updated my blog with videos I've been uploading; hope you don't mind! Life's been super hectic, who knew Uni could take up so much of your time and energy?! 

Thank god that's out the way now though, bring on more YouTube videos and Blog posts, I'm also hoping to do some collabs so any YouTubers or BBloggers who may be interested then just pop a comment below or email me - - as I have a lot of time on my hands now - hurray!

I best get myself to bed, Goodnight or Good Morning depending upon where you are, much love and thank you for sticking by me! I've recently hit over 400 followers on my blog and I'm over the moon!

Don't forget to let me know if you'd like to collab!

2013 Make Up Favourites Video!

Hey my lovelies,
I absolutely loved doing this video, I've never done a yearly make up favourites video (I'm so rubbish at doing monthly ones, I always remember when it's too late). As you can probably tell I'm on the ball now with videos and I will be making a schedule shortly (once I've got my Uni assignments out the way, yawn, yawn, yawn) so if you have any schedule suggestions or you have found a schedule that works for you as well as balancing uni or a job etc then I'd love to know!

On to the video, enjoy!

Let me know what your Blog/YouTube schedules are and what you thought of the video below!
