Surprise Shopping #4

DUN DUN DUN I did it again. I swear this sale gets to me and I'm only saving 33% but acc this time I saved 60% for being a loyal customer so woop

Let's go through the first item that started it all, I needed some setting spray and the MUA setting spray was just not living up the broke gal pride so I decided to bump up my budget to £4.99 on Barry M matte fixing spray. I am happy with my choice and even though it is much smaller than expected it really does the job well. I found that my makeup stayed on really well, I mean I wasn't matte but after a long day at least I wasn't a greaseball per usual.

I then picked up this mascara because I am in desperate need for a new one and this was recommended to me by a friend. When I was there I saw a few of the same product so it was elimination time. I knew I did not want waterproof because that stuff is hard to take off and I needed one for everyday, also for that reason I got blackest black. I kind of want to say I got the big blackest black because I have big eyes and really love mascara with volume but I was unaware of this before purchase and just wanted the BIG because it was a brighter pink colour. I heard a mix of reviews and considering I was buying 3 for 2 I didn't mind experimenting. I like it a lot tbh the formula is good to play with, not at all dry or clumpy, it makes my lashes look extra long without looking like spider legs so it's good for basic looks.

My final choice is... a blush by Sleek! I feel like I'm moving towards Sleek slowly and honestly no regrets, even though I'm not a fan of their lipsticks they have been impressing me in every other aspect. Usually I'm a bit weary of buying Sleek because of the price but the blush was £4.99 so it was alright (price made cheap me happy) :D I chose Flushed because it was a dark matte colour which is great for the cold season and something I do not own. I LOVE IT! Ah I love it as light blush for everyday and a bold blush for events and how it's so deep but classic and doesn't look childish or anything I love it. I am so happy with this :D xxx

#PSYCH Schizophrenia (1)

Schizophrenia is a psychotic disorder that affects the thought process by creating a lack of contact with reality. It has positive symptoms that add on to 'normal' thoughts and behaviour e.g. hallucinations; and negative symptoms that reduce 'normal' activity e.g. loss of drive.

Surprise Shopping #3

I wasn't supposed to go into Superdrugs so I think the lack of sleep pulled me into the store and the rest was history. It was covered in 3 for 2 signs and pom poms I just had to get something so this time I even surprised myself. I'm actually pleased with everything I got even if it wasn't planned, I did decide to get things I already use daily but from different brands.

First up I wanted this MUA highlighter in gold because I always test it out and it's such a beautiful shade, I know that MUA is very pigmented makeup so when this highlighter came out sparkly it just made my dreams come true. I do like gold highlighters with my skin tone so this one was awesome. I knoww it looks white but trust me it's like I'm wearing gold glitter in the best way.

As the highlighter was three pounds I needed things within that range, the first thing I thought of was Maybelline lip balms and it being Autumn they had a new range. Of course me being my fanatic food loving self got super hyped over chai tea flavoured lip balm and just had to get it. It was also a good deep shade of pink/red that I knew would look good on me. Baby lips is a product I have tried before so I knew it would be pigmented enough that I could wear this alone on a basic day and still look like I glammed up.

Finally I was about to buy another baby lips when I remembered that I needed a new deep brown shade to bronze/counter my skin but it did need to be in the three pound range to make sure I was getting the most out of this deal, so I was super excited to get this magnificent find of a three in one bronzer, highlighter and blusher for £3.50 from Makeup Revolution. I know it is 50p over however I don't know if you can see but the screen was cracked so I was able to get it for £3 instead and hey I can live with a crack as long as the product is all good.

And this is the final look with some primer underneath for an even base otherwise I am happy to leave the house with just these. If you think I'm lacking in confidence because I'm looking down plej no that's not how it works I am just too much model that you cannot handle my shy bride look >.< I am actually really happy with everything I got and seriously this is such a good sale, like this is the one 3 for 2 across all cosmetics, lashes and nails and just yes go for it! You also get a free pom pom to join the #pompomsquad and I am tempted to do a bit more just to get the other two... we'll see =)

Fall Study Challenge 25-31

25.10.16 // Hobby
Damn do I even do anything? lol jk sleeping can count as a hobby. However recently I got a camera to borrow from college and that's pretty great! I got both a digital and film camera for the holidays so I'd been using that a lot.

26.10.16 // Study inspirations
"If tomorrow's not the due date, today is not the to do date"
What inspires me to study?? Actually studyspo and deadlines help a lot. Looking at cute notes makes me put more effort in when writing them out aand when I have a lot to do I get stressed out easily so I make sure that I note down what I've done in a day so I can keep track of what needs to be done and it keeps me going. It's kind of weird but I also remember Jim Chapman in a tag with Zoella, talking about how he used to do all his work as soon as he got it and well I kind of just want to be like that I guess!

27.10.16 // Fall theme

... Am I Autumnal yet? I bought a comfy kind of jacket-cardigan from Primark recently and then added some badges to personalise. I wanted something to keep me warm but not hot and this is perfect because it is thin but has a lovely warm material that keeps out the cold. I recommend it for cold mornings and chilly days. I did actually get it from the men's section just because even though it was a bit more pricey they had a much better material and the fitting was more comfy than tight which is actually perfect for fall

28.10.16 // Costume/fall colours

Gold. I'm loving the idea of wearing deep, rich colours like navy blue and teal or plum all over again but there has been a lot of gold accents popping up in my life and I am arms open to it! Sometimes it'll be love to a new highlighter that might as well be sprinkles of gold considering how much they shine and other times it's the golden yellow like in this late night cookie dough that keeps me happy.

29.30.16 // Unknown

There isn't a title for this one so I just decided to insert this picture of a noodle box because I really like food and that is what I ate for lunch today.

30.10.16 // This month I...

have never felt so relaxed and hectic. I had a lot to do but Alhamdulillah I got through it. Yes it could have gone better but it also could have been worse. I'm at least trying this time so it's okay.

31.10.16 // Halloween! / note to self

I need to start fixing up my timetable as in when I sleep and when I'm awake, because it's getting darker I tend to sleep earlier which isn't an issue as long as I wake up and don't oversleep
PS that's kind of what happened yesterday which is why this is late, sorry.

Although that is the challenge complete, I really enjoyed it as it helped keep me motivated however if I don't post soon I'm either too busy, my laptop is dead or I'm just tired and I blame the weather for being darker earlier.
