Another year has passed before our eyes and 2018 is here! I feel 2017 was not only quite a shit year for many people but also went by very fast. I felt like I haven't took anything in. In 2017, I actually left my house and did things! From getting a permanent job to attending a blogger event and even reconnecting with friends. 2017 was alright for me. I also reached 500+ bloglovin followers. And as a thank you, in the new year I will be doing a giveaway so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Every year as far as I can remember Newcastle have had a Christmas International Food Market around the town centre at Monument. From handmade goods, delicious foods and gorgeous jewellery and trinkets, the market is a perfect place to shop for a unique present. But mostly everyone goes for the food. And this year, some old favourites made an appearance as well as some foods I’ve never had before. This year I always see the market to and from work but never have a look. Unfortunately I was too busy scoffing my face with treats that I barely took any photos of the rest of the market. 

I'm pretty sure the normal Christmas market is on straight after this market as well. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Every week my friend Laura and I aim to do something together. To lift moods and basically just to hang out a lot more since our lives are full of work and other activities, it’s sometimes hard to have a social life. So whatever day we have free, we plan to do an activity etc and document what we’ve done to look back. Here are some photos of our outings from the past week. This post is a tad photo heavy.

So recently I made a purchase over at Jemma’s Etsy! After a while of ogling her work, I finally found my hubbys bank card and clicked buy. You may know Jemma as Dorkface. She has bright hair, paints alot and loves Eminem. (Hi Jemma!)  I wanted to support a small business and treated myself to a cute print for my office that I aim to decorate soon. Although I'm in the middle of painting my bathroom so that might take a while. However I will be buying frames for these pieces of artwork this week :D I really want to aim to support more artists now I can afford to buy things. And what better time to support and give then Christmas. Excuse my hideous nails in these photos.

For £2.50 I was pleasantly surprised by Primark’s Eyebrow Palette. It’s always a bit of a hit or miss with their beauty section but I definitely think this is a hit for me. I’ve been using MUA’s brow palette for a few years now and decided that it was time to try another since I wasn’t a fan of the Lottie Eyebrow Pencil. When I saw this palette during a trip to Primark, I had to plop it into my basket.

Now when you think of Christmas in Newcastle, Fenwick window comes to mind along with the obvious. Fenwick (I always call it Fenwicks, I add the S for no reason) have been doing these windows since I can remember. And some are memorable and some are less memorable. I thought since this year I work in town and go past the Fenwick window display I'd take some photos of this years display! If I'm not mistaken, I'm pretty sure this is the only Fenwick in the UK to put on such a display. So many of you will  have no idea what this means in Newcastle. It's been apart of Newcastle for over 45 years!

A few weeks back I attended the Body Shop event in the Metro Centre and got to try lots of lovely products. One of these products that I had my eye on was the Vitamin E Sleeping Mask.

So ya wanna talk to ghosts, eyy? Well I can't really help you in that department regardless of what my social media username says.

Here is part 2 of the Wifey/Hubby Tag. Find part 1 here. Like I mention in part 1 this is actually the boyfriend/girlfriend tag but whatever. This is my take on it. :D I put in if I was correct or not at the end in Orange. As you notice we are quite different people, which is great. And I also took the mickey out of his answers from part 1 on here. Enjoy the comparison too! :D


Monday, 16 October 2017

I recently got into using the website/app influenster and I was surprised to find out that I had one of their UK vox boxes heading my way. This vox box was a Marc Jacobs Beauty box and inside was the new Velvet Noir Mascara. I'm so excited as I've never tried or owned anything from Marc Jacobs so thank you influenster for giving me the opportunity to try this out.

Hello my paranormais? My boos? my ghouls? Ok should I stop. 
I have a perfume review for you today. This perfume is blogger aesthetic with the rose gold everything and it's fitting name of Rose Gold too. What is this perfume you may ask? Well it's the Rose Gold Eau De Parfum from Monsoon! I was lucky enough to try this out and let you know my thoughts about it.


Friday, 13 October 2017

In the past I wrote about a little game called Food Street made by SuperSolid. (Remember I called my resturant Hentai Tiddies! You can view that post here) Now they have a brand new simulation game out called Home Street! I was asked to play this before the release day (12th of October) but by the time I had replied etc it was the release day. I haven't received any payment for this review etc. I love doing mobile game reviews so I must continue to write them. I already have a few mobile games I've been obsessing over lately to show you so expect some blog posts about them too!


Thursday, 12 October 2017

I thought it would be fun to do the boyfriend/girlfriend tag on the blog! This should have been done as a video but it is what it is. But it's also now the Husband / Wife Tag because we are married but this doesn't really change the questions. This is Tony's answers to the tag questions. I wrote the questions and he added in his answers (it's kinda obvious with how he's worded some of these answers) I also added if he was correct or not at the end in orange! Let's see if he knows me as well as I know him...

The Body Shop held an event on the 8th of October hosted by Gianni of The G Edit showcasing new products from the body shop as well as getting to know more about the products in store and general mingling from North East Bloggers! We were able to bring a +1 to the event so I asked my friend Laura if she'd like to come with me. I thought it would be a lovely girls night out and was super excited to attend the event as this was my third ever bloggers event since starting this blog! Warning this will be a photo heavy post. We took so many photos. 


Tuesday, 10 October 2017

Continuing with catching up with blogtober! I was reading through Rebecca's blog and came across her Harry Potter Tag and decided to do it too! The wand in my photos is actually Voldemort's wand and I found it under the sofa when I moved into my current place. Weird huh.

getting NAKED with Urban Decay*

Monday, 9 October 2017

I feel like every blogger and their mother has a Urban Decay palette. I don't earn enough to just splash the cash on expensive products so when I saw the lovely Jemma aka Dorkface (go give her blog a read, you won't be disappointed) was doing a giveaway on her instagram. I pressed that like button so fast and commented on her post like there was no tomorrow. AND I WON. I won a freaking UD Naked 2 palette and I can see why everyone loves these palettes so much. What can I say. I'm quite the lucky charm! Everyone has their own opinions on each makeup product so lets read mine, shall we? :D Onto the review!

rockin w/ Benefit*

Sunday, 8 October 2017

I say this alot but I won a giveaway not too long ago and in this giveaway was a Benefit blusher. Now 1.I don't really own anything by Benefit unless it's mini sample versions of everything and 2. I'm not the biggest blusher wearer due to my very mild rosacea cheeks but most of that gets muted when I wear high coverage foundation. So I was super excited to get this in the giveaway. I've tried it out already so here are my thoughts on the Benefits Rockateur Blush! (And yes, you haven't seen the last of these autumn leaves in photos yet!)


Saturday, 7 October 2017

Can we just appreciate for one second these photos I took?! It looks like a water drop on a autumn leaf and asdfghjkl. And I'm back to using the ol' light boxes as Autumn has reduce the weather to dull grey skies and shorter days. Also I hit a snag with blogtober and couldn't upload because my internet went down. Someone out there really wants me to struggle with this challenge, so I will be posting two posts a day to catch up! Wish me luck as I have a week to catch up! Ok. Onto the review of the Silicone Sponge from Makeup Drop.

positive vibes

Friday, 6 October 2017

I will be honest and say I'm someone that will mostly see the bad in my everyday life. I complain about insignificant crap and when things don't work out, my mood goes down so much. I use my twitter as a way to rant about everything going wrong about my day but lately I've calmed down (aside from my computer rant) I've tried seeing the positive outcomes in my day to day routines. Finding good things that have happened even with my constant anxiety. I want my mind to know that my life is peachy compared to others.


Thursday, 5 October 2017

After buying a lip balm and bath bombs from geeky clean, you can see my post about them here, I picked up their unicorn poop sugar scrub at MCM London. I have my eye on the Unicorn Breakfast candle because BOTH OF THESE SMELL AMAZING. I wish you could smell these photos. I really do.


Wednesday, 4 October 2017

I've fallen behind on Blogtober since things have happened that are out of my control when it comes to my PC not working. I'm literally using my phone and browser to edit this post that i pre written a while ago. Its horrendous using this way to blog. I really need a secondhand laptop or something. 


Tuesday, 3 October 2017

Can we just look at how cute "Spooky" is?! Yes his name is Spooky. I didn't name him. But it fits this post. He'll look after you and will probably pop up in future posts. Any'oooo' I've decided to compile a list of thirty one films you can choose from to watch on Halloween, during October or if you're struggling to watch something on Netflix.

Undercover Princess*

Monday, 2 October 2017


Stepping away from my normal reading genre of crime thrillers, I received an e-ARC copy of Connie Glynn's Undercover Princess via Netgalley and Penguin Random House Books. I was very excited to read since Connie unveiled that she had been writing a book! I've met Connie several times during my trips to MCM London Comic Con and I occasionally watch her youtube videos. You may know her as Noodlerella. Now just because I've met Connie, it won't sway my opinions on her book. Undercover Princess is due out 2nd of November so this review will be spoiler free!

October Goals

Sunday, 1 October 2017

I'm always making lists and goals and this month is no exception. Hello October. The time for spookeh stuffs, oversized jumpers, hot drinks, netflix binge sessions on the sofa and lots and lots and lots of candles. Here are my small and large goals to do this month.


Friday, 29 September 2017

I shouldn't be watching brand new shows as I still have a ton of Supernatural, Game of Thrones and Supergirl to catch up on. Plus new episodes of AHS and HTGAWM are back but yet here I am bingeing on new shows. Thanks Netflix.. Even though two of these shows I mention are not on Netflix. Also I really wanted this blog post up today and I'm not too keen on the photo I used for this post. It'll do pig. It'll do.


Saturday, 23 September 2017

I popped into B&M after seeing Hayley's Candle review and I wanted to go and have a look for myself and just have a look around for some bits and bobs. Their halloween section is pretty impressive and if I had friends to have a halloween party for, I would have bought so much stuff. The sweet bowls were hilarious. B and M for those who don't know are a bargain store and have shops in the UK, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. This is what I got and my thoughts on THOSE candles...


Tuesday, 19 September 2017

I won C.L.Taylors book giveaway on facebook and I was so thrilled and excited since I was a fan of her book The Missing which is when I first discovered her and couldn't wait to read her newest book which is out October 19th. 


Sunday, 17 September 2017

So Zoella brought out a Jelly and Gelato collection in Summer and I decided to pick up the Gelat-eau Body Mist (cute name zoe). I've never really bought any fragrances from Zoella's beauty range before. I bought her very first candle and body lotion and that was it. I've never really had any interest in buying her products. Until one day I just decided out of curiosity to smell her new Jelly and Gelato range. I kinda fell in love with the Gelato Spray when I decided to smell it one day while getting makeup wipes from superdrug and then put it back since I didn't really have the money to spend. But then I decided to treat myself after my cover job turned into a permanent job and well here we are. I also would love to smell her snowella body spray too but I'll get to that when I can spare £12.


Saturday, 9 September 2017

I recently won a Vegan Box competition run by TheBeautyBank and I wanted to tell you my thoughts on this. Get ready for some savage comments.


Thursday, 24 August 2017

I was in Superdrug looking for a new moisturiser, which I didn't get but I saw the Fire Vixen palette by MUA Cosmetics and plopped it into my basket and went straight to the checkout. For £5, this palette is my new favourite go to, perfect for this autumn and is an absolute bargain.


Saturday, 19 August 2017

I picked this book up during my visit to London Comic Con last year while buying another book. The title alone intrigued me and I had to buy it.

 "Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since fifth grade, when they bonded over a shared love of E.T., roller-skating parties, and scratch-and-sniff stickers. But when they arrive at high school, things change. Gretchen begins to act . . . different. And as the strange coincidences and bizarre behavior start to pile up, Abby realizes there’s only one possible explanation: Gretchen, her favorite person in the world, has a demon living inside her. And Abby is not about to let anyone or anything come between her and her best friend. With help from some unlikely allies, Abby embarks on a quest to save Gretchen. But is their friendship powerful enough to beat the devil?" - Good Reads

It's been forever since I last wrote a blog post! And since I'm between jobs right now, I decided to get back into the blogging mojo!
So I found these questions on tumblr and thought I'd answer them here :D Any other questions I should ask, let me know :D 

Alright lets jump into these 150 questions that took way longer for me to answer than it should have and with some gifs cause it wouldn't be me if I didn't throw in a gif or two. {I did want to find a gif for every question but that was hard so only a couple have gifs.}

This was the messiest product I've photographed. It got everywhere. 

You may have seen a few charcoal products around the web, from face masks and scrubs but how about teeth whitening? I've seen a couple of charcoal teeth whitening products around eBay and Amazon and decided to try one out. CocoPure Teeth Whitening is made and manufactured in the uk to a food and safety standard, it's 100% Vegan and Natural. 20 Grams of this product is £3.95 but a little goes a long way and the ingredients are Activated Coconut Shell Charcoal.

It's April, oh gosh, where did the time go? Hello there! It's been a while since I last posted because I've been working my butt off to pay rent and paying for all those dreaded bills that adulthood gives us. I've missed having the time to take photos and blog. So I jumped at the chance while I had a few days off work to show off my new beautiful pieces of jewellery.


Tuesday, 28 February 2017

It's almost spring time which means cleaning and a new wardrobe!
When it comes to clothing in Primark, it's very hit or miss with me. And I always think the men's have better Pop Culture Tees than the womens. HELLO. We ain't all about Game of Thrones and Friends. I found quite a few of my favourite tee's from that section. Is it just me? 
On to what I would love to stick in my basket... WHY OH WHY HAVENT YOU GOT AN ONLINE SHOP YET?!


Wednesday, 22 February 2017

Primark's matte lipsticks have been out for a while now and I've only just gotten round to making this post even though I've had these lippys since last year. I really just wanted to re-do photos that were saved in my drafts. I like this style of layout, you'll be seeing it a lot more in beauty posts! Onto the review...


Sunday, 19 February 2017

We all need a little retail therapy/treat now and again. I decided to pick up a couple of things while out and about. The orchid plant you see in the photo is also new, it's from wilkos and was £4. It's fake but I did also buy a real house plant too. I'm hoping to have tons of plants in my house soon. They really do bring a room together. The photo frame is new and was £1 from the poundshop. I needed some frames for my unfinished watercolour prints which will be shown in a post soon. Read on for the beauty haul.

There is something about a graveyard that I love. Maybe's its the peacefulness, the pretty graves or I'm just morbid af but I really enjoyed walking though this big cemetery in South Shields to do a little bit of pokemon hunting and I snapped a couple of photos too! It was such a foggy day yesterday morning, it made this cemetery a little more eerie then normal. I saw a grey squirrel and heard a few woodpeckers and watched the diggers clear some earth for a fresh grave. People always found it strange that graveyards never bothered me. 

Here are some photo's I took before hunting for Gen 2 Pokemon which dropped that day too!

ROSE MATTER | Jeffree Star Cosmetics

Wednesday, 15 February 2017

I won Tore's beauty giveaway last year (go and check out her blog when you can, it's under construction atm) which included a Jeffree Star Lipstick. I've been wanting to try his lipsticks since I first knew about them but never had the money to afford to buy one and then get them shipped here. Thanks to BeautyBay we can now get them in the UK.  Everyone knows who Star is in the beauty world. Heck, if you had a MySpace there was a chance you came across him. And his drama but I'm not here to talk about his past mistakes or his current dramas. I'm here to review this lipstick.


Sunday, 5 February 2017

Currently this is my go-to lippy from Essence for when I need a bit of nude on my lips, it's such a beautiful colour. And smells like a chocolate vanilla cupcakes. These retail at £2.30 from Wilkos (please check the website for your local store that sells them) which is a fantastic bargain and my shade is "Beauty Approved" :)


Saturday, 4 February 2017

Get comfy on the sofa with a good cup of tea, coffee, drink of choice and get ready to binge watch these fantastic tv shows I'm currently loving on Netflix. Also enjoy some cute gifs, just click some of the names and don't judge the colour of my tea.


Friday, 3 February 2017

Day 3 of my Blog Every Day for a Month Challenge! Benefit re released their brow products in new packaging as well as some new products a while back and I snagged myself a freebie from the Glamour Magazine to have a try of their Gimme Brow. (This is how old this draft post is) Gimme brow is a tinted brow gel which helps give fuller looking eyebrows. The brush is very similar to a mascara wand but smaller for easy strokes across the brow and precision.  Gimme brow come in the shades, 1. light, 3. medium and 5. deep. I have the light shade sample.

Lace and Whimsy is a lifestyle blog and shop run by Kathy D. Clark. I've been following her for a while now and just adored her magical illustrations. Her shop is full of stickers which have been illustrated by Kathy and various collaborators too! All of the stickers you see here in this post are illustrated by Kathy and I just want all the sticker packs available. =^.^=


Wednesday, 1 February 2017

I'm trying to blog everyday for a month..again. I did it last year and really enjoyed it. So here is my first post for February, where has the time gone already.

I won a giveaway a while back which included two barry m coconut nails. I've been intrigued by these ever since they were announced.  They claim to be hydrating and my nails could do with some hydrating...
