Dream of Flawless Eyelashes? Lady Burgundy and I Got You Girl! (5 min read)

Hey lovelies, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! How are you all?

Firstly i am sending you all massive hugs and kisses for sticking around while i was being less active due to settling into my Law Degree! I can now happily say that i am back and have a ton of new posts coming up once a week – every Wednesday.

To clear one more matter up, the lucky winner of my autumn giveaway was a sweet girl called Laura and she had informed me that all her goodies had now arrived and she’s excited to use them. If i see that everyone here is being active as per, i will for sure make another giveaway with even greater products! x

Now that all is clear, as per i’m introducing you to a new, cool brand… lets get straight to the eyelash talk.


At the beginning of October i had discovered Lady Burgundy lashes and ever since i am addicted. I use them daily and oh.my.goodness they legit transform my look from average to a-m-a-z–i-n-g.

For those who are not familiar with this fantastic American brand, Lady Burgundy handcrafts 3D silk lashes of the highest quality. The team is so lovely to speak to, a special big hey to Amrita! To read more about them, click here.

The three styles of lashes that i chose were Lala, Amrita and Roya. This is the first time that i got my hands on proper lashes and i am so glad. Lets highlight the fact that i can keep on reusing them as much as i want to, as long as i give them a good clean at the end of the day.

Usually i would have never considered wearing lashes for an everyday look, afraid that it’s too much, but these ones look so real and flattering. Ever since i started wearing them to work or to my university people began to notice and say “your lashes are amazing, how did you do this?” and my secret to that is Lady Burgundy.


Since today is the 31st of October i thought why not to spice up the photographs a little bit and make it themed.

What else can make a photo more Halloweeny than a carved pumpkin!?

The packaging is classy, sturdy and pretty for displaying on your vanity table.

Lala Lashes are my favourite ones. They make my lashes longer, fuller and more colour intense – score! I will definitely be repurchasing them asap.

And as you can see these Amrita lashes have been well loved too. I managed to get them nice and clean of any additional mascara and eyeshadow for this shoot.

In the subject of Roya lashes… i think i wore them the most and when it came to take the photo today they were not as photogenic as the rest. I have probably used them about 10 times now and they can pull a couple of more looks to be honest! This just shows you how durable Lady Burgundy lashes are – definitely worth the investment! I’m so pleased.

Oh… I so took this photoshoot opportunity to get some nice themed photos with my fluff ball Faith.


Once again a massive Happy Halloween! How many of you celebrate this holiday? If so, have you got any plans for tonight?

London Sea Life Aquarium: Way Too Much Fun (5 min read)

Hey you all!

Have you read my London: Sightseeing Gallery & Surprises post? If yes then great, if not then definitely give it a look! 🙂

Now let’s bring out your inner child in this post as we will see so many cool creatures.

P.s some photos may be quite dark because I was not allowed to put my flash on in case it scared the animals! Hope you understand. x

Enjoy!


IMG_7403.JPG

First awesome attraction is the clear glass tunnel as you walk into the building. It was actually quite scary to walk next to massive sharks! So much trust had to be put in to that glass layer.


Generally speaking I was so happy to be able to visit this aquarium. It was for sure the biggest that I’ve ever been to and the animals seemed to be looked after well.

That place literally made me turn into a little girl again, who got very excited to see wee fish and weird sea creatures.

This Sea Life aquarium had different sections, dividing species from different parts of the world. There was so much to look at!


IMG_7409.JPG

Above are some strange looking types of star fish, although I can’t remember what they were called.


IMG_7411.JPG

And here are some funky, living plants! By living I mean they moved all the time and in their own way interacted with the little fish in their tank. Or maybe this was some type of fish and not a plant? But I don’t see a tale…? If anyone knows what this is please tell me haha!


IMG_7413.JPG

I was told that the above star fish is the biggest of its kind in Europe (for now). The photo doesn’t do the justice, it was at least twice as big as my hand in reality!


Octopuses. They love to play with toys and perform logical tasks, I mean I did not know that they are so intelligent! Did you?


IMG_7416.JPG

* A grumpy fish.*


IMG_7418.JPG

I’m literally so bad at naming sea species, I do apologise! But this one was so funny! It kept trying to make me laugh and played peek-a-boo for ages!


IMG_7425.JPG


At the time of my visit, this aquarium was sponsoring and promoting Finding Dory. There was a whole room dedicated to the movie with all the fish that played in it too!


IMG_7445.JPG

Whenever anyone asks me what my favourite animal is, I will always say turtles and tortoises!

The photo above is hilarious. Imagine if the turtles were having a serious meeting and there was me standing staring at them haha!


I must say I was very surprised to see a penguin section. Me and Lyall must have watched them for a good half an hour, observing how they play in the water and run around! There was a bit to peek your head through into their home, and once again I made a little penguin friend. Lyall wanted one too, but no penguin came to see him… *sad violin music played*.


Lastly, as you exit the building there is a cake that you walk in to see the sharks up close. A good way to end the sea life tour!


Overall, I would definitely go back to this aquarium. There were so many different species to see and the place provides you with lots of information around the fish tanks so you learn. Although, as you could probably tell I didn’t really learn many fish names … oops.

What’s your favourite animal? Let me know 🙂

Tanya Burr Cosmetics: Birthday Suit Eye Shadow Palette Review (3 min read)

Hello everyone!

First of all I would like to apologise about this post going up today (Tuesday) and not yesterday (Monday). This is because I scheduled it for the wrong day (oops!). But here it is now, the last piece from the Tanya Burr Cosmetics collection which I have recently bought.

Have you checked out my previous posts in Tanya Burr Cosmetics series?

  1. Tanya Burr Cosmetics: Enchanted Dream Eye Shadow Palette Review (3 min read).
  2. Tanya Burr Cosmetics: All About The Lips (3 min read).

All caught up? Enjoy this post!

From what I know, this must be one of the most popular palettes from Tanya’s range; the Birthday Suit eye palette! I really adore this rose gold/deep peach packaging and the theme in which all of her palettes have in common – this makes them such a decorative piece for your vanity table!


FullSizeRender_1.jpg

This cute palette contains four bronze shadows: Marzipan, Toast, Cocoa sugar and Soft Truffle.

Here are the swatches, starting from the top we have Marzipan, Toast, Cocoa Sugar and Soft Truffle. Toast & Soft Truffle are the matte shades and Marzipan & Cocoa Sugar are shimmery.

I absolutely adore using Marzipan as a highlighter on my cheekbones, bridge of the nose and under brow. Who said that eye shadows have no other uses? No one ever!


My favourite look using these shades is:

  1. Sweep Marzipan across your eye, from lash to brow, as a base and a transition colour.
  2. Pick either Toast or Cocoa Sugar and blend it just above the eye socket.
  3. Blend everything well.
  4. Define your lash line and outer eye using Soft Truffle.

Overall, I really recommend this eye shadow palette. it’s only £5.99 at Superdrug which is a bargain. The pigmentation is there and you can create some pretty cool looks with all the shades. The only thing I don’t like is the fall out from the powder! To avoid this I apply these shadows before my foundation. Other than that, I give this palette a thumbs up!

Do you like this Birthday Suit Palette? Have you tried the Tanya Burr Cosmetics range yet? I would love to find out. 🙂
