home/paris/summer/lil chris

Bonjour! Finally home, comfy, relaxed and back into blogging again after 2 weeks off ;) come on it was much needed!
Paris was amazing - i feel in love with everything instantly. I know people say 'omg its changed me' blah blah blah! but i actually loved it! I think from a fashion prospective it's inspired me to carry on my dream of becoming a journalist... and i think that's a good thing! The fact that the weather was lush made things much better too as the weather made my mood brighter! 

P.s.. Disney land was incredible. My dream of meeting Cinderella has been fulfilled OOOP!
I got some nice bit and pieces! I got the mother some L'Occotaine hand cream.. (in french) the Lavande one :P For myself: Guns and Roses vest top, Chanel Chance perfume, Old Vogue poster from the 1960's, Kiko milano concealer in 02 & Matte Lipstick in shade 278 and some little nic- nacs (y) If i was to complain about anything it would be the smell in some parts.. and in the hostel we stayed in there was a burnt window, the food wasn't great, bathroom was tiny and smelt when we arrived..(not after i left though!) but everything else was brill :)
Tomorrow i am going to post the piccy diary that i did - my phone app was rubbish so i couldn't write my blog... i think i was being a bit dimm! never mind!

The English weather this week! crack on! its been brill - had my legs out and had some ice cream! life = complete! not only this but i got my iPod classic working, this has to be the best day ever! i finally decided i should maybe get it working again, so now i have 60GB to work with, not bad, not bad at all!! So with this came all the old music.. and oh boy there was some classics, one being Lil' Chris.. wow.. this is a tune ;)
so i thought what is he up to now a-days and i couldn't find anything but he looks much older and he has piled on some pounds....

New Summer songs:
01. Sam and the Womp -Bom Bom - Fearne Cottons big thing this week... OMG YES! gets me dancing every time :')

02. Lianne la Havas - gone & Age - amazing woman nothing more i can say! just so so good!
03. Passion Pit - Take a walk - such a calm song that makes me smile everytime :)
04. Newton Faulkner - Brick by Brick & Clouds - this mans voice is incredible. just sheer amazing!
05. Porter Robinson - Language - Summer anthem, i can dance to this and it just fits well with the image of sun and ice cream :P

*4weeks to leeds fest :D*

yesterday was possibly the best day ever. I came home from college and came upstairs and found the most AMAZING shoes ever sat on my bed! they were those Blue&white high tops from riverisland.. wanted them for so long and now they are mine YES!
with this was a new cath kidston washbag filled with stuff to take to Paris with me (only5 days to go!!) 

so this made me realise that my mum is both amazing and loves buying stuff to take on holidays cause there was loads of little things that were pretty cool, my mum is amaze XX
so next week cause i am away i am going to do a little blog from my phone daily just to say what i have been up to just to keep you all posted! there may be a few piccys in there if you're lucky :P

clothes wise - i have no idea what i am taking :/ i need to get planning.. i have all day monday so thats all good but i think i need to decide what to take as we are going on a few evening meals so i think nice clothes would be a good thing.. i think i shall be taking numerous pairs of shorts, 2 dresses, 1pair of jeans, a skirt, jumper, denim shirt etc.. apparently i need to pack light.. that isnt happening. . .

not only this i need to decide what to buy from duty free.. i think i need to splash out the euros there.. i would be a fool not to! but i think if you recommend any top brands that would be great i need some kind of idea what i need!
only a short one today. short and to the point i feel!

Vegetarians/bagels/fizzy fangs/Shopping

You know what I love? A bacon and philadelphia bagel omg they are so yummy - the sad thing is is that they are so fatty... Oh dear! I need to shed some pounds :/
So i went into sainsburys and i went down the sweetie isle and i came across Fizzy Fangs.. whoa my god. so so so so so good! i think i like them more than Percy Pigs. if you get chance buy some  they are only.. wait for it... 49p :D amazing. 

So last night I went out with some friends and one got rather sad they he didn't have a 'woman' in his life - but he dumped his last gf's as they were vegetarians :/ I personally found it wrong as its unfair but many people I was out with said it was fair enough! Ahh dear! i do worry about those people sometimes...

So shopping tomorrow hopefully going to get some nice bargains like the Zara bag I mentioned I really hope they have it! I shall post the piccys of the things I bought and I what I intend on doing with them later on! Writing this at work in my phone so this couldn't make any sense or it could be fine! We shall soon find out haha!

so this is what went through in my plan.. and here's what happened. I went to zara excited abour my bag.. it was horrible :/ i didnt like it at all! so i am bagless D: the most horrid thing ever! to make things worse i couldnt find my skirt or the purse.. so i am currently crying in misery cause i didnt stick to my list!!
i got some jewellery though and a few tops and some shorts.. thats right.. more! i am going to do a blog soon about the jewellery and shorts and tops! so hopefully you will have a cheeky read :P

hope this wasnt too weird for you to read!

soothers/amazing moment/new stuff i want to try

what is it about Soothers that makes them so yummy? their fruity goodness? there amazing scent? you all may think whoa my god she is strange, but think about it! they are fruity and taste AMAZING and when that gooey goodness pops into your mouth its just amazing. i love it so much! i think i need to stop eating them, as i feel i could get ill from it.. if i can please comment and tell me!! why am i randomly saying this... well i have a cold and i cant stop coughing! its a really pathetic cough as well, its really weezy and ticklely a lot like an old man.. its horrid!! those who have hay fever will understand what i am going through. I HATE YOU HAY FEVER.

recently i have been told that people want to dress like me, which i was amazed by because i never think i am fashionable in ANYWAY at all! i dress for my mood and that's about it! not much thought goes into it at all :/ so i was touched when my friend got the same clothes as me.. and i mean the exact copy.. but she said that she just loves the way i dress so somehow i felt touched! (however before hand i was quite mad as they were the 2 items of clothes i consider my 'staple' items.. and are me so to start with i was what i like to call.. cheesed off!)  also the children i work with at band (geek alert!) all say i am the most fashionable person they know... i felt somehow relieved because i now know that i don't dress badly and happy cause people like the way i dress! enough of this now!!
guess who is part of the nominations of 6th form President.. BOOM! elections next week - wish me luck ;)

So i have been doing some research and looking around there is some things i want to buy and makeup i figured i needed to test out because so many people are raving about them! and since i need to manage my money i figured writing a list would make things MUCH better! so i am going to tell you guys what i am planning on testing! 
  • BB cream from Maybelline - i have heard it does 'wonders' for your skin so you know what i am going to try some! (£7.99)
  • Maxfactor 2000 calorie mascara - this is meant to make your lashes look fuller and longer and since i have some boots points to use why not?
  • Zara Bucket Bag with double handle in Black - i have been raving about this bag! i need it for paris as it is so chic also can i add.. £16.99 in the sale. YES PLEASE. 
  • Monki - i have heard great things about this online store and i figured that i neeeeed to buy some things off it! so i have come to the conclusion i shall get the: Sonia Make-up Bag in Ducky egg blue. Also the Miracle Purse in Milk 'n' Caviar. Basically these are just to go into the new bag so in the purse i shall put the essentials eg Euro's, Cards, Passes etc etc. and the make-up bag shall hold my essentials. (might not get both.. i arent too sure yet)
  • Topshop Leopard sunglasses - they are the classical 90's round shape and since i am going to be wearing midi/maxi skirts for some of the days i thought i might get some to work up the look. here is the ref code online incase i have described these badly!!  22P38BBLK
so here is just a few things i shall be getting to get my essentials for Paris underway! i may do an outfit plan for some of the days because i cant take that much with me in my suitcase :( i hate limits so i think this is where my organisations skills really need to be used!

if you found any of these items useful for other reasons State in a comment

ice cream/sales/beauty products

is it just me or is ice cream the most addictive desert ever? it goes with everything and is so so yummy... but cause of this crap weather i havent been able to full fill my ice cream expectations! it is july now and we have had 1/2 weeks of good sunny weather. SORT IT OUT WEATHER.
so as you all know i love a good bargain and i have been doing my webb searching and Zara = top marks for sales! i am going to paris in 3weeks and i figured as i am going to a fashionable place i should invest in new clothes/bags/purses etc so i fit in!
Zara have a good deal with bags.. so i shall post the piccys of the purchases when i go in a weeks time! (excited!) 
topshop i was a tad disappointed with which is a shocker for me cause i live in their items, whether it was because i was with Harry at the time and wasnt concentrating i arent sure but i wasnt too impressed :/ 

so i have decided i should really give you some idea of what make up i own... because i feel you are all waiting in anticipation. I dont really wear much because my skin is rather fresh and i dont really break out in spots which i am thankful for!! however i dont really use that higher end makeup mainly because i cant afford it and because i feel i arent old enough.. i dont know why but even though i am 18 soon i still feel a child when looking on their stands i feel slightly intimidated by their evil glares so i just walk away. foolish i know!

Foundation: i have tried so many in the past and so many have worked and some i have thought crap that is orange and slides of my face. i keep going off track sorry! so the 2 i use at the moment. 
Rimmel wake me up in 100 Ivory
é even better in 01 alabaster 
both of these are my ultimate favourite foundations! i buy rimmel foundations all the time mainly because they work really well with my skin tone. I know i said i dont tend to buy 'high end' makeup but i found that with cliniqué i could just go up and ask what i like to call 'teen friendly' beauty helper people and they tell me what i need to know and dont glare me out cause i am too young...(i have seen year8's go to clinique i figured i could also go up!) i think for both of these if you have oily skin these wouldn't work as well as they are rather heavy.

Powder: i have never tried powder because i felt that it didnt really do much and mainly because i didnt understand it (failure) until one of my friends said 'you should try it in summer as it is light on the skin' so being easily led.. i did. I do not regret it AT ALL. i wear it on days when i cba to put on foundation or when i feel i look shiny!
Rimmel stay matte pressed powder in 005 silky beige 
BeneFit Georgia 
i love this as it really stays on my face all day and it does what is says on the tin. i will definitely be buying this product again! again i may have told a little lie about high end products but i find with Benefit is that its 'teen-friendly' and i get it as prezzies from my mum and family members and because this is incred on my skin so when i have money to spare (which i warn isnt often!) i get the products

Bronzer: i have always liked the idea of being slightly brown and so i thought instead of fake tanning my face bronzer would make me look a little more healthy on the face! and there is one product which i ADORE and i can't stress enough how much i love this! 
Bourjois bronzing powder in medium 51 
(its in french so i tried my GCSE skills dont kill me if i am wrong!)
what i love about this product is that it has lasted me a long time and it always looks amazing makes my cheek bones stand out and who can complain about that!? also i love the smell... weird i know.. but omg its amazing! if you get it.. take a whiff and you will be blown away by the scent!

Blusher/Primer/Highligher (if used): i think i have done this in a strange order.. but i have just been grabbing stuff and writing about it! oops! i dont use either very much only when my face looks dull and need some brightening or if i feel like it! (both products where gifts from my mum otherwise i wouldnt get them!)
Benefit primer that gal
Benefit Blusher in Coralista 
Benefit Watts Up
Benefit Moon Beam
Yeves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat (lost box i think it is in the lightest shade!)
what i love about these is that they last all day and i love not having to re-apply makeup during school time as it takes so much effort and people stare at you in the bathroom and that is NEVER fun! like i said above my mum bought me these as gifts for a variety of reasons otherwise i wouldnt get them as they are too pricey!!haha

(this is taking a while chaps i am sorry - if you dont want to read dont! cause we have the eyes to go at yet!!)

Eyeliner: i like to change from liquid/pencil/gel depending on where i am going and what i am doing! to keep it snappy.. Pencil pretty much never as i find it smudges but i do sometimes when i think omg need to use it.. then realise why i havent.. Liquid i use EVERYDAY i love it! Gel when i go out partying and need something to last the evening.
pencil: Cliniqué khol 201 black (if your fancy Kohl liner)

collection 2000 eyelines in soft navy
Liquid: collection 2000 fast stroke black 1
Gel: Maybelline lasting drama gel liner 01 black

Mascara: like liner i love to change what i use depending on mood or what my eyes look like! i arent going to go into them too much because i own so many that its hard to explain D: but i own both black/brown and colour so this should be fun! (i will in the near future do a mascara review! for those who like high street brands like me!)
Maxfactor waterproof Masterpiece high def in black
Maxfactor lash extension effect (waterproof) in black
Rimmel London scandaleyes in 001 black
Benefit BADgal lash mascara in black
Benefit BADgal lash macara in blue 
(sadly this is no longer avaliable but i bought it in heaps as it was limited edition!)
Benfit BADgal lash mascara in Plum (great for blue eyes!)
Estee Lauder double-wear zero sumdge curling mascara in 01 black
Rimmel London Glam'eyes day2night in 001 black
Proof of how much i own D: this is bad guys...

Lipsticks/tints/The one lip Balm: so i am a big lippy person mainly because i like the smell.. and because i love my lips i dunno why but i do! i own so many lip products that i think it is also worrying :/ so like my mascara i am going to list them all and hope for the best! However there is only ONE lip balm i use and that is Carmex. I LOVE this product i think it is 50/50 whether people like it or not as some dont like the tingly effect and some hate the smell/taste. i love both and it works wonders on my lips after playing my cornet all day! (band geek alert.. sound the alarm) unlike most girls i dont like lip gloss that much as i havent found the correct consistency that doesnt stick and i find it too shiny *shrugs shoulders* i dunno am i being too picky and difficult? i dunno... here we go
Barry M Lip paint Pale Nude 154
Revlon Matte 001 nude attitude
Look Beauty Toffe Cup shade 4
Rimmel London Moisture Renew vintage Pink 180
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Drop Of Sherry 058
Magic Lips Green 10 
(okay guys this isnt Green.. it is magic and turns a brightish pink on the lips depending
on your natural lip tone.. clever i know!!!)
Benefit California Kissin'
Benefit Posie tint 
Benefit Lip Tint balm and liquid
Nivea pearly shine

so i am finally done - i hope you have found me rambling on about what i own useful.. i have now realised how much i own D: oh dear...

i shall let you go now,
