Superdrug & Topshop Haul !

Okay so it's half 9 the night before my prelim and I'm sitting with my maths notes infront of me and not understanding any of it, I am simply lying to myself pretending that I am studying when I know I'm not. I think the fact I started at half 9 the day before prooves that I was really never going to study for it. So instead I am going to do a haul for you lovely people, just a couple of things I got today, mostly for a party I'm going to next weekend. (Last one before exams start!)

Barry M Nail Paint in the famous 304 mint green. I would never have bought this colour if it wasn't for the million blog posts I've seen on it, I think I've been slowly brainwashed into it! Haha, but I actually like the colour on so I'm quite happy with it:)

NYC in Superdrug are doing a 2 for £3 on selected products and I wanted some false eyelashes for the party I'm going to this saturday, the last time I wore any was years ago so it'll be interesting to see how badly I manage to apply them! These ones are self adhesive but I'm hesitant as to how long they'll last, I have some lash glue lying around just in case.

The 2nd item I bought from NYC was this 7 inch eyeliner, handy as I was running out of my own and in desperate need of a new one, so I should be okay for black liner the next couple of months!

Some hair treatment to renourish my locks, they've not been looking their best lately I'm afraid to say. I've never tried this before but will do a review on it at some point.

Then I went to Topshop where the mid season sale was on. I hate any sale, in Topshop, ever. I love some of the things you can find of course but it's like everyone goes crazy, its so intimidating! Anyway I found this on one of the rails, I thought it was gorgeous! It's a cropped top made of extremely light cool material with little black bows at the end of each stripe and little frills along the hem. It was reduced to £10, which I still think is a little expensive for this, which is why I rarely shop in Topshop.

And finally, I bought this divine cream bandeau dress which I've had my eye on forever! It was in the 'buy it now regret it later' section and I was in need of a new party dress anyway so I thought I'd go for it. It was the last one in my size and there was a tiny snag on the back of the dress so we pointed it out at the counter and they gave me £9 off! Couldn't believe it. So I got this baby for a total of £36. Not bad if I say so myself:) This is how it looks on:

I think it would look better with more of a tan but I love it nonetheless.
Hope everyone had a good weekend:) Peace

I have more prelims this week and my exams start in 2 weeks, but I didn't study at all today. So I thought I should at least do something productive, hence the new layout.. I don't know if it's just me that can't get into the right mindset to study for exams, which supposedly 'will affect the rest of your life forever'. I feel like I should be panicing, I know a lot of people who are, but I'm not. Maybe I just find it hard to believe that the rest of your life could depend on a series of exams sat over 3 weeks at the age of 16? Would I really be sitting on the streets or still living with my mum at 40 because I failed some exams decades ago? Hmm.. or maybe I'm just too laid back and should get my arse into gear :D

Didn't have a clue what to title this post, I miss blogging.
I love you all :) xxx

Update On Me & Complete Ramble :)

I'm finally back!
I've been completely neglecting my blog so far this month! But those days are over, and I have missed you!
Firstly, 98 followers?? I have no idea how that happened and I don't deserve that many after almost 2 weeks of no blogging :( I'm not worthy! But thankyou to all my followers, old and new, it means the world to me that people actually take an interest in this :)

So the reasons why I've been completely seperated from my blog are that my boyfriend came to stay the first week of the easter hols, and as you can imagine any time we get together is extremely precious to us so for the duration of that I barely touched my laptop, (with the exception of signing on for itunes, which I HATE.) Below are a few pictures my boyfriend took of me while I dodged every shot at all costs. I've only uploaded 3 but there I have a folder full of the back of my head.

That last picture made me laugh when I saw it, there were actually tonnes like this and I had no idea he and my brother had been taking them as I was too busy hiding, ha! (Please appreciate that I don't want to make this blog too personal, the focus stays on makeup & fashion, which is the reason I won't post pictures of my family/friends, and for this reason won't be uploading any direct pictures of my boyfriend). After he had returned home I was basically too depressed & absorbed in missing him to do much apart from mope about, but this week things have been going back to normal.

So instead of writing even more than a novel, I'm simply going to summarise my day in pictures and just caption them saying what theyre to do with:) & I plan to get back into the swing of things this week.
Thanks peeps:)
