Quick Last Minute Halloween DIY - Glowing Eyes!

This is a super easy fun Halloween DIY which takes less than an hour to do and super cheap too! Its super effective especially in the dark and hidden in your bushes and trees, and It will freak people out when they trick or treat to your house as it looks like eyes are watching you! So keep reading if you wanna see what I used and how I made them...
So you will need Glow sticks to make the eyes glow. I actually used these Cyalume safety lightsicks as they last 30 minutes of high intensity glow and last an extra hour or so fading out. They are also non-toxic, non-flammable and also weather proof which is good for this time of year as you never know when its gonna rain! 

You will need some kitchen roll tubes, or toilet roll tubes or any tubes you want really ;) But just something you can cut eyes in and fits a glow stick in the inside!

Lastly a pencil to draw the eyes on so you know where to cut, otherwise they will be all over the place! Trust me I've tried! Also some small scissors like embroidery scissors or nail scissors will do fine. This is so you can cut obviously but it can be quite tricky if you use big ones!
So I just started out with roughly drawing out some ideas of eyes on paper, these are the ones a chose to do. This was just a guide for when drawing onto the tube. I chose to do some easy some hard to do, you also have to work out what you are cutting do any details you want to keep stay on. 
So it should come out something like this. You see my cutting skills are not the best but too be fair it doesn't really need to be the neatest think in the world as its going to be tucked away in a tree or bush! 
So I took this at 6pm and its pretty dark outside already so when people come visit your house to trick or treat you can really see them well! You would want to make sure that your glow stick is smaller than your tube so that is doesn't stick or glow out of the sides. I also did find that some glow sticks can be very bright so they still do glow out the sides, so make sure to either put in a bush so you can see this or stick a piece of card which wont let through to both sides! 

So this is pretty simple aye! Super quick easy and effective at the same time if you want to add a little more to your garden this Halloween! There are also so many different designs you could come up with too! I hope you enjoyed reading and if you do it let me know and send me a picture! I know its kinda late and actually on the day of Halloween but I've been a busy be you see ;) So I apologise, but until next time have a awesome amazing, oooh and spooooky  day....


Belissimo Lips Review!

So today I'm doing a quite an exciting review for you guys! I got sent some Belissimo Lips from Belissimo Boutique, and mine is in the colour Rose. I was really excited to get these in the post to try as I have never seen anything like this and I really like the idea of it! I think this product would be great when going to party's like Halloween or New Years and if you want to make a statement. I actually went out with these glittery lips and I got so many people ask me what I was wearing, how much they liked the colour and how good it looks! 
So to start off I really like the way they sent the product as it was in a bubble wrap envelop so noting will break and it was all safe. Also the glitter, glue, cotton buds and card came in a little bag, which I think was a really nice way to package and looked nice too! The glitter comes in a little pot with the name of the product on, it looks quite small however there is a lot of glitter in it! I have used this colour twice and you can hardly see the fact I've used any! The only thing you need to be careful is that the pot is filled to the top, so if your clumsy like me try not to spill it! 

There are loads of colours to chose from... and when I mean loads... I mean LOADS! You are literally spoiled for choice! Some of the colours they include are Red, Tea Rose, Candy Pink, Purple, Frosted CoralLilac, Holographic FuchsiaChrome Silver, Black, Blue Gold, Iridescent Peach, Lavender, Rose, Yellow Gold, Gilded Peach, Gunmetal Grey, Iridescent Snow!
You also get a glue too which is obviously to help the glitter stick! This glue is made to be gentle to your lips and not hurt, it doesn't sting or irritate my lips so I'm very impressed with that. Its also specially formulated for sensitive skin! This glue is water based which makes it very easy apply to your lips too. It says that you should apply with a clean cotton bud however I found it easier to just use the brush the bottle comes with on the lid. I love the shape of the bottle as it reminds me of the nail polish bottles I used to have as a kid! Oohh and this glue is also safe to use on children's lips too!
It also comes with a little card with all of Belissimos links which I will have linked at the bottom as well as where you can get the products! On the other side has clear instructions on how to apply the product and how too remove which is very helpful. Before applying you will have too remove any lipstick or lip gloss you have on with a non-oil cleanser.
So you have to apply the glue first and like I said they say to use a cotton bud to apply but I found it easier to use the brush instead. I learnt that its better to do one lip first and then the other as the lip your not putting glitter on, the glue will dry. 

I then just took one of the cotton pads you get with the product and dipped it in the glitter and applied over my lips until everything is covered. You then want to brush of the excess glitter, I also used a makeup wipe to get glitter off the rest of my face as it does go everywhere aha!

You then have to wait for it to dry and you have to do this with you lips apart other wise they will stick! The card says that while drying you should avoid eating, drink and kissing! 

If you then want to take it off you just remove with a cleansing wipe or oil based cleanser. Pretty simple aye!
I really do love this product and dramatic effect you get, the glitter is so pigmented and vibrant! Certainly draws eyes too! I will say the only problem I have with it is that you can't really eat with it on. You can drink but I recommend using a strap for that though. On their website they say that it is designed to last 12 hours which for me it didn't! It was completely fine for the first few hours, then I wanted to test eating with it and they say not to eat grease food so I didn't but I found that it started to peel! Besides this I really don't think I or most people will wear it up to 12 hours anyway, if your going to party and wearing just make sure you eat before you go and drink from a straw!

So it is £13 for one Belissimo Lips. You may think that this expensive for some glitter and glue, but think... the glue is specially formulated not you be harsh on your lips and you do get a lot of glitter! There's got to be more than 20 uses of it there which means your paying like 50p for each time you wear it! If that makes any sense ;)

So if you are interested in buying the one I have tried which is in rose you can get it here -

Autumn Tag!

So I tagged by my good friend Chloe over at Fashionablycoy, she is a newish blogger and you should defiantly go check her out! So she tagged me in doing the autumn tag which is obviously what today's post is gonna be!  

Favourite thing about Autumn?

So I think that my favourite things about autumn has got to be the fact that halloween is getting nearer, the nights are getting darker and me and my mum can watch horror movies all night! It dose mean also Christmas is getting closer too and oohhh my I am excited! 61 days I have you know! 

Favourite Drink?

I don't actually drink hot drinks anytime of year so it wont be a hot chocolate like most people but... is it weird that I drink Lemonade most at this time of year?? 

Favourite scent/candle?

This one is quite hard for me as my Mum and Dad wont let me burn candles in the house as they think that I would burn the house down.. which I most probably would! But I do have a candle which is a Yankee Candle in Fluffy Towels which I really like. I don't actually like warm spicy scents for this time of year cause they kinda make me feel sick!

Best lipstick?

Im not one for wearing lipstick I'm more of a lipgloss kinda gal! But I do like wearing a bold red or dark purple in this weather, and the red makes me feel all christmasy.. I know weird right ;) But if I had to chose on it would be Smooth Plum from Avon.

Go-to moisturiser?

My mum gave me Niveas Aqua Effect Moisturizing Day Cream not to long ago and I have been loving it! Dry skin is what I suffer with mostly in the autumn winter time and It just makes my skin feel sooo nice!

Go-to colour for the eyes?

I would say that I totally darken up my eyeshadow with more purples too! I also love using an Avon liner in Majestic Plum on my lash line too! Can we just take a moment to appreciate the name of that eyeliner tho!!

Favourite music to listen to?

My music taste tends to stay the same all year round, yes I listen to Christmas music all year round... why not!?! But lately I have been getting back into Fall Out Boy and their songs Phoenix and Young Volcanoes are my favourite! 

Favourite outfit to wear?

For the autumn time I still get hot so I'm not so much wearing jumpers and coats, but I love wearing my boyfriend jacket and chunky Chelsea boots. Oh and I also love wearing skirts and dresses with tights! And the other day I got some tights with fleece in and they are the softest things ever!

Autumn treat?

I would have to say it would be Halloween as it is my favourite time of year, and I have an excuse to watch horror movies over and over again! As well as carving pumpkins and dressing up too!

Favourite place to be?

I had to think about this one quite hard because I don't tend to go out to a specific place when in the Autumn time. However I will be cliché and say being inside in the warm when its cold and rainy outside.

So thats my Autumn tag I hope you liked! Don't forget go check out Chloe's blog and go follow her!! Here are the people I tag, and if I haven't tagged you personally then you can still do it and let me know if you do! 

I tag....


See you guys later and until next time have an awesome amazing day...


Little Red Riding Hood Halloween Makeup Tutorial!

So I've finally out up my first Halloween tutorial for this year! They would have been up earlier but I've been really ill and couldn't speak pretty much so a voice over was a no go! So I left it till I got better and my voice over is still a bit dodgy as I kept coughing every 5 seconds aha but I felt like it needed on. So please ignore my voice over and bad explaining! 

So I was reading the true story of little red riding hood and it was really dark so I wanted to do a quite dramatic and dark take with the makeup! I've seen lots of tutorials on this type of look but I wanted to do something that was super easy and use products that pretty much everyone will have so you don't have to go out and by new products!

So I hope you like this and I hopefully will have two more Halloween tutorials up next week and a foodie video too!
So until next time have an awesome amazing day...


OMG I'm Such A Bad Blogger!

So where do I start... god knows aha! Well you may have seen that I haven't blogged in the longest time, and It actually makes me sad thinking about it! I feel like I've kinda let you guys down in a weird way too! But I do first wanna say thank you as I haven't even blogged in over a month and you guys are still reading my blog, commenting and following! Which always helps to inspire me to do more posts. However lately I really haven't had time, and I'll explain why...

So first is pretty much my excuse every time I slack at blogging and that is because of college. I think that is an okay excuse as college is quite important but the work has be really stressful so far this year as it is my final year and next week is my first assessment week. So I've been trying to work my butt off! 

Next is I have been ill a few times, and I'm ill right now! When I'm ill I never get any inspiration and I don't feel motivated, but I am on the mend and I have soooooo many great post ideas and I'm quite excited about them!!  

Lastly I was on TV.... yes tv like what!?!?! So Steve Holden from BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat tweeted me asking if I wanted to film a day in my life and how I use social media. I had a Go-Pro and filmed my day and you get to see how many times I checked my phone and what apps I use most! The team at Newsbeat did a really great job at editing what I film and if you want to see it you can check it out here.... (they picked the best thumbnail of my chins ;) 

So once again sorry for not blogging in a while! But I have a lot played for the rest of the year and its 10 weeks till Christmas and 15 days till Halloween... say what! ;) So hopefully some Halloween tutorials for this year too! So until next time have an awesome amazing day....
