Beautiful

12 Aug

I love music so much and I just had to share this video and band I came across the other day, I’m not a trend follower, it takes me months to find something I truly love and my itunes playlists are filled with a range of different music genres.

I’m pretty sure you’ve all heard of ‘Kodaline’ but this music video and lyrics touched me so much, prob cause I can relate, being a bigger size than normal, its hard to get a guys attention or taken seriously, I just loved this music video and song so much. Thank you Kodaline.

“Every Girl, Needs A Man, That Will Ruin Her Lipstick, Not Her Mascara”

‘Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together’ – Elizabeth Taylor.

This quote could not be more suited! I love all lip make up! nothing finishes off a beautiful make up face than a gloss over the lips and don’t get me started on all the different colors and shades you can get, one for each mood in fact. This post is simply me telling you beautiful ladies, what I find is the best high street lipstick out there for you.

Firstly, take into considering when purchasing lip make up, your hair color, skin tone and eye color. One color may look good on another girl, but not on you. Sadly me and my best friend learnt this the hard way.  I have bright blonde hair, greenly blue eyes and a natural olive skin tone. My best friend has pale skin, dark brunette hair and blue eyes, our lipsticks could not be more different, see pic below!

This picture was taken last Saturday night, we we’re heading to a 21st party fancy dressed themed ‘Rock’ so we decided to go as ‘The Runaways’ myself as Cherrie Currie and my friend as Joan Jett.  The picture isn’t very good quality, but you can kinda tell the different shades between our lipsticks. We both took a trip down to Boots and purchased some lipstick from the ‘Kate, Rimmel’ collection. I purchased number ’22’ which is a light red tone it was £5.49, and my friend purchased a slightly pink color for the same price.  The Kate lipstick at first is hard to put on, not much going on at one go so you have to keep putting it on, we also found that it didn’t stay on our lips for very long! no we weren’t kissing lads, we we’re just drinking, lipstick ended up on my chin and my nose and I hadn’t touched my lips or wiped! I’d only drank from the bottle! Ended us up most the night drinking from a straw and making toilet trips every half n hour to put it on again and wipe my face, was a lot of effort.

My favorite lipstick/lipgloss at the moment is the ‘Rimmel Apocalips’ it’s so cheap as well! In Boots they had an offer on, not sure if its still there, but its 2 for £10! if you’re with a friend, go half’s and get one each, only a fiver each!

I have two of these bad boys, I have the shade third from the left, and the shade second from the right.  I love these so much, they stay on for hours, don’t smudge 😉 and make your lips stand out and ‘pump’ giving you irresistible lips or as my friends call them something else, which I shall no repeat on my ‘innocent’ blog.  My tip is put on a similar lipstick on before applying the lip gloss and put the lip gloss over, this just add mores defiance to your lips and gives your lips a base.  Below is a pic of me wearing the lip gloss shade second from the right.

So relating back to my blog post title, if you are a male and ruin my lipstick, you’ll have a tough job as i’m wearing the best, but it’s always better to try and ruin my lipstick than my mascara!

If you’ve purchased any lipsticks/lip glosses which think deserve a mention, please leave a comment below and I shall give them ago! thank you for reading

Ibiza!

11 Aug

On July 7th 2013, I jetted off to the well know island of Ibiza. Ibiza is known for its stylish fashionable girls, sunsets and of course, the partying. Before I went, I read a lot of magazine articles on Ibiza and I was so excited, but I must of gone to the wrong Ibiza to everyone else. The Ibiza I went to was a smelly dirty beach, rude guys, overcrowded beach watching the sunset and the clubs were so over packed it felt like I was getting crushed to death and if I hear one more ‘house music’ song I will kill myself. 

Don’t get myself wrong, there is nothing more than I love than getting dolled up, music pumping and drinking and dancing in clubs, I go out every week back home and I’ve been Magaluf the previous year and loved it, but Ibiza just didn’t do it for me! 

To start with, I think the main cause of this bad experience was the people I went with. I didn’t go with my normal group of friends, I went with some people from high school who I hardly speak to normally, Don’t get me wrong, they’re such a lovely group of people, but I would of had a better time if I could go with people I speak to all the time and I couldn’t have to hold back myself most the time, I spent most the holiday trying not to annoy them with my normal habits and this sometimes made me angry as I wasn’t being myself. The group dynamics were not good as well, a couple, two lads who had an unbreakable ‘bromance’ and then me, so i was the odd one, I needed another female with me, as I didn’t really have a single companion with me! 

The clubs were outstanding! When walking in, I was blown away i’d never seen anything like them before! They are so big and expensive! I felt like an celebrity, that was until thousand more people came in, and had sweaty men with their shirts off rubbing up and down against you, people off their face on drugs they looked like zombies, crawling at you to get a 8euro bottle of water.

I think drugs were the main problem on this island, people constantly approaching you asking if you’ve got ‘charlie’, ‘pills.’ its annoying! no. I don’t understand why you feel the need to get that wasted you can’t remember the night! I nearly through up, when I saw a girl same aged as me, pick up her friends sandal and lick it for a tiny bit of coke! she spent the past twenty minutes after than using me as a post to lean on. I drink, I drink a lot, I get drunk a lot, but sorry i’m not spending 50euros to forget the night! I want to remember how good calvin harris, rudimental , katy b and knife party were. If I could recommend anything it to be splash out that extra 20euros and go VIP. 

The bars on the ‘The West End’ were better than the clubs in my opinion, but still full of high chavs and the same house music overplayed. If you want to go see some good dj’s my fav place was the Ibiza Rocks Hotel, we saw Example there and he was good, plus if you’re not up for getting crushed in the crowd the back is quite and you can still see them clearly as its not a big area. 

I liked Ibiza, but I wouldn’t return, I’m glad I went, but don’t believe all the over hypness of it all! It is dirty and expensive and if you ever wonder where Vicky Pollard went she’s in Amnesia Club licking peoples sandals for drugs, give her a punch in the face from me!
