Worst Products I have bought – Part 1

As I’m moving house in a couple of weeks I’m starting to de-clutter my life starting with my biggest collection, my makeup drawers and bags. So I thought while I’m throwing things out I’d document the products I’ve barely touched and why I’ve never used them before giving them the chop.

These opinions and views are my own, and based on how they work on my own skin. My opinions in this blog post do not reflect other products in the lines of these companies, and were purchased with my own money.

My little trip to London…

As part of my university course I was meant to go on a trip to London this week to look at galleries, but the trip fell through last minute. I purchased tickets to see Trixie Mattel to coincide with my trip so I booked a hotel and got myself to London to do some shopping and to see the Queen. My trip included visits to Camden, Oxford Street, Carnaby Street and Tottenham Court Road.

#HillarysCrafternoon Craft Afternoon!

On the first of March I was invited to attend an afternoon with JoeBloggers, The Crafty Hen and Hillarys to learn how to create some exciting crafts using Hillarys blind fabric.

I was excited to try something different and go to an event that was a change from beauty blogging and it was a refreshing afternoon to create something that I could use and take home!

This event was held in Chapter Arts in Canton, Cardiff. I’d never been before but the building was beautiful and I had a shock to see how big the building actually was. If you haven’t been here please do check it out, it hosts some local talent and live acts.

During the day, we created a book cover, and a fabric bird.

Kaspa’s Desserts Cardiff!

Yesterday I decided to visit Kaspa Cardiff that my friends have all been raving about! I was excited to see what all the fuss was about and how it looked inside.
Kaspa’s are known for their large deserts, and their menu includes waffles, crepes, sundaes, milkshakes, soda floats and smoothies. When I entered the building the air smelt sweet and there was a large queue with a 30 minute wait, which I did not mind as I love my food. The look of the place looked a lot like if Eds diner met a night club. It is beautiful.

What’s your favourite Film and Book you’ve read 2014? #Currysfiresidefiction

As part of Curry’s #Currysfiresidefiction and their competition to win some amazing kindle and Amazon prizes that can be seen here , I have been asked to write about my favourite book and film I’ve read and seen this year and I must admit it’s been quite tough to pick just two from the amount I’ve read and seen!

Eventually I decided on one of each. My book of choice is The Further Adventures of An Idiot Abroad by Karl Pilkington, and for my film choice, The Wind Rises by Hayao Miyazaki.

Both have been brilliant to fill up some spare time and I highly recommend you to read or watch them! Read on to see why I decided to pick these books.

I’m moving house!

So today I shall be moving from one area of Cardiff to another.

I currently live in Roath, which is a popular student/residential area of Cardiff with lots of life and atmosphere. I will be moving to the Heath area of Cardiff which sadly has less character in my opinion but thankfully doesn’t have as many students. Plus I can go back to my old Dr. (Which I hope is still there!) who was lovely compared to the one I see on City Road, who is a little patronizing. I will be living with 3 Professionals whilst I’ll still be a part time student and working.

So you may have noticed the lack of posts recently, this is due to my move. I have packed up all my makeup and have left the newest purchases at my parents house for safe keepings. These includes YSL Kiss and Blush, W7 pallets, Soap and Glory skincare some Ciate nail polishes and a whole lot of Yankee Candles! I have also started working in a local bar in town for extra money which is so fun, feels like I’m on a night out but I get to earn money for it!

So please bare with for the next week or two then expect a whole lot of blogging!
