Angela & Roi Handbags

I recently received an email from the online handbag retailer Angela & Roi and was asked to share their story. In brief, they create gorgeous fashion forward handbags whilst donating money to charities for specific diseases and illnesses.
 I am not being paid to write this but I am passionate about some of their causes such as breast cancer and kidney disease as close family members have suffered from these recently.

Take a Break, Take a Bath!

Everyone needs a break from busy life sometimes and seeming as I'm home from university for over a week I thought I'd tell everyone my favourite way to relax - taking a bath!!

The 'No Make-Up' Make-Up Look!

Sometimes it's really nice to get up in the morning, do a full skin care routine and carefully apply your make up for the day. However, being at university usually means late nights and early mornings which don't offer the chance for the most perfect look everyday (I live with 5 boys and I don't sleep well!). 
 As we all know the weathers getting colder and the parka's are coming out so put your hood, plug in your earphones and get ready for a long day studying!

Most days are no make up days for me but I'll still put on some essentials so my face is completely naked! My 'naked day' essentials are -
 - Benefit POREfessional primer
- NYX HD studio finishing powder
- L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique in 1 Light
- L'Oreal Paris Falsh Lash Telescopic in Magnetic Black
- Maybelline the Colossal Volum' Express Mascara in 100% Black
- Maybelline BROWdrama in Dark Blond

Hair Colour -
Nice N Easy Colour Blend Foam Medium Ash Blonde 8A
Glasses - Specsavers
Parka - Primark

Remember, sometimes less is more!

Halloweens Nearly Here! - Do It On a Budget

This time of year is fun for every age. Children love dressing up and getting lots of sweets to last them for months and adults love throwing costume parties and getting very drunk. Some people just sit home watching scary movies (this is me) and some don’t really bother with the night at all.  
If you’re planning to attend or throw a party and get fully dolled up to the nines I feel I can help you with that.
The amazingly talented Nicole Guerriero is an American make up vlogger who is always my first port of call when I buy beauty products; and when it comes to Halloween make up. She loves this time of year and posts tons of makeup tutorial videos on YouTube that will inspire you and teach you so much about Halloween make up.

Why Are Students Poor?

This is a post not many people will probably read but I'm going to write it anyway.
I'm writing this at midnight after a long day of sleeping and eating and just 1 lecture (YAY ME!) so I apologise in advance but this is a topic relevant to me and thousands of other students across the world and I'm going to tell you why we are so poor.

Kourtney K's 'Kat' it again!

Way back in March 2012 I posted here about Kourtney Kardashian rocking the 'Cat Eye' sunglasses. Well guess what?! She's 'kat' it again! (Sorry, I couldn't resist!!)
The eldest of the Kardashian siblings was seen on Tuesday with a signature Moschino belt in Los Angeles and those cat eye sunglasses.

Hello, October

I don't really have a favourite time of the year because there's bits of each season I love. For instance:
Spring - The fresh green grass, baby animals everywhere & my birthday
Summer - Sun, sea, sand, heat (I needn't say any more right?!)
Autumn - Hallowe'en, the colours, crispy frosty air, jumpers and boots
Winter - Christmas & New Year, snow, hot coffee and hats and scarves.
What is your favourite time of year?
One thing I love all year round is the pictures that pop up online depicting each month with the phrase 'Hello..' followed by the month. Below are some I found online for October.
