'I love juicy' lush shampoo

Hey guys, so today I'm here reviewing one of my lush shampoos called 'I love juicy'. 

First of all, the packaging is really pretty, and easy to get into. It states on the bottle that the shampoo 'is to blast through grease and make oily hair bouncy and clean once again'. I wouldn't say that it does this any better than any other shampoo, even shampoos that aren't necessarily for oily hair. It makes your hair feel super fresh, which is of course a bonus, and it makes your hair smell AMAZING! The smell lingers throughout the day, which makes your hair feel fresh at all times. 

It is around £6-£7 for a small bottle, although you only need a little drop, so it will last a few weeks if you wash your hair everyday. I probably wouldn't buy this shampoo again, as the price is quite high for a small bottle of shampoo, that doesn't work any better than any other shampoo. 

My favourite thing about this product is the smell, however I'm quite disappointed that it doesn't work any better than any other shampoo. 

I hope this has helped you out in case you was thinking about purchasing this product, and I hope you enjoyed this extra Wednesday post!!

Top 6 drugstore beauty products under £5!

Hey guys, so I'm here today doing a post which was the most requested on Instagram, my top 7/ favourite drugstore beauty products. 

1. Rimmel stay matte powder. 
This powder is literally my life. It is so good, and it sets your makeup by making it matt, and by making it last longer. If you have oily skin I definitely recommend this.
£3.99 from boots. 

2. Collection lasting colour lipstick. 
In the shade No. 3, sugar plum. I have mentioned this in a post before, and it's really good especially for winter.
£2.99 from boots. 

3. Collection work the colour eyebrow kit. 
This is amazing, especially if your looking for something to fill your brows in that is softer and not as harsh as a pencil. The colous suit any skin tone, and there is a clear brow mascara for setting them. I did a review on this a few months ago, so if you scroll down you will be able to find it. 
£3.99 boots. 

4. Baby lips moisturizing and hydrating lip balm. 
This is a great, clear lip balm so you can't tell that it's on your lips. It's the perfect size and great for school. 
£2.99 boots. 

5. Collection fast stroke eyeliner. 
I use this for doing a wing when I'm wearing eyeliner, and it's great and super easy to use. It also lasts on your eyes for ages, and doesn't smudge easily. 
£2.50 superdrug. 

6. Models own blue shimmery polish. 
I usually use this as a top coat. It just make your nails looks prettier, and it makes them last longer. 
£5 boots. 

I hope you enjoyed this blog post, and it helped you out!

Autumn & Winter lip picks

Hey guys, so today I'm here doing a lip post. I'm going to be showing you the top 3 lip colours of the season, and my favourite products for that colour. 

1. The plum lip. 
My favourite product for this colour is the 
Brand & name- Collection, Lasting Colour lipstick
Shade- 3, sugar plum
Price- £2.99 
This is a great lipstick, it's super moisturising, and it is really pigmented, it also stays on your lips for AGES, which is a great bonus as you don't have to keep re applying it. This is also probably my favourite lipstick and colour for the season. 

2. The red lip. 
I've never really worn red lipstick before, but when i discovered these products it totally changed my mind. 
Left product:
Brand & name- Barry M lip lacquer crayon
Shade- No. 3
This is a great product, and again it stays on your lips for a while, and it's super easy to apply. 
Right product:
Brand & name- MaXFactor lipfinity lip tint
Shade- Coral Crush
Price- Around £7.99
This is probably one of the brighter red shades, it is more like a pen, so again it's easy to apply, and it lasts on your lips for hours. 

3. The nude lip.
If your not brave enough to go dark, nude is always a great way forward. 
Brand & name- Collection, Volume Sensation
Shade- 13, satin bow
Price- £2.99 
The colour on this lipstick is great, and it's definitely my go to lipstick. As it is lighter than all of the other shades, it is the easiest to apply, and takes no where near as long. However it doesn't last on your lips for very long, as it kind of fades quickly. 

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post! See you soon!

Girl online

Hey guys, so I'm here today reviewing the book girl online - (aka the best book in the world!) if you don't know, it is by Zoe Sugg, otherwise known as Zoella. Even if you don't know her, this shouldn't stop you from buying this book. 

So first of all the front cover is beautiful! It looks so pretty and girly. I started reading this, and I knew straight away I wasn't going to be able to put it down. It is one of those books you definitely can't stop reading. I finished it about an hour ago, and it's also one of those books you feel really sad about when you've finished, and for sure I will definitely read it again, in fact I will probably start tonight! 
I know that loads of people have already read it, but if you haven't and if your thinking about buying it, I will give you a quick review on what it is about:

There is a girl called Penny whose best friend is called Elliot. Penny gets the chance to go away on a holiday of a lifetime to New York City, and she is lucky enough to be able to take her best friend with her. While she is on this experience, she meets the boy of her dreams named Noah, and they quickly fall in love. However before she knows it, it's time for her to leave, and go back home. Penny suffers from panic attacks, and she started an anonymous blog to help her out, and on this blog, she had written posts about Noah. However when she arrived home, she found out some things about Noah, that he hadn't told her. This caused a lot of upset, and somehow, her anonymous blog comes out, and everybody finds out it's Penny's blog.

I will not revel what else happens, but the ending is so happy, and I was literally smiling at the end. It's one of those books that is like a rollercoaster of emotions, it makes you feel happy, angry, and sad. It had me in tears at one point! 

I definitely recommend this book to you if your a girl who loves reading girly books, or romance kind of books. If your one of those people who likes reading thriller, and horror books, I probably wouldn't recommend it, altough why not give it a try! And also, if your not a reader, you still need to try this book. I love reading when I find a good book, but I never can, and I knew straight away this would be a book for me. 

Overall, I give this book 10/10 rating, I really enjoyed it, and a massive well done to zoe!

New year resolutions 2015

Hey guys, so today I'm here telling you about my new year goals. Some of them are crazy, however some of them are achievable and realistic if I work towards them. First of all i just want to say I hope you all had a great New Year's Eve. Lets get started. 


1. Travel more. 
This year should be a good one for traveling as I am going to New York City in Easter! I am super excited about that, and hopefully I will be going on holiday in the summer as well. 

2. Do well in all exams. 
In September I will be going into year 11, which means my mocks will be coming up this year. Doing well in exams is really important for me, if I want a good career. 

3. Save money for NYC. 
I find it hard saving money as I always want to spend! But if I want a successful trip to New York, I need to start saving. 

4. Get fit for summer!
Everyone always going on about wanting their 'summer bod', well this year I am determined to get mine. 

5. Go to a few concerts. 
I am going to see the vamps and union j this year with my friend, although I feel like I want to live a bit more, and go and see a few different concerts. 

6. Get a george shelley twitter follow!
This probably sounds quite random, but as you know if you follow my Instagram, I am obsessed with union j, and JJ, Jaymi, Josh, and their band account follow me, so now I just need George. 

7. Get a direct twitter message from one of union j.  
DREAMS!!!!! Altough I think this could be achievable. 

Crazy goals:
These are basically revolved around meeting people. 

1. Meet union j. 
If you don't already know, I met them in august 2014, and it was the best day of my life, so my aim is to meet them for a second time. 

2. Get a George Shelley hug!
This is definitely possible if I get to meet them. 

For now, that is all of the goals I have, I'm sure I will continue adding more onto the list!!
I would love to know what your new year goals are, so feel free to comment down below!
I hope you have a good year.
