an amazing liquid highlighter

So the other day, I had a bit of a disaster. It was purely my fault...I accidentally spilt nail polish remover on my laptop keys so I immediately panicked and wiped it off but the damage was already done. Some keys were working but others were not and now I am left with half a keyboard basically. The problem is, I have a password on my laptop so I couldn't even log in because I needed the number keys and those are the ones that aren't working.

I think I've rambled enough now but the long and short of it is...I can't blog on my laptop BUT I got an iPad this year and after reading Gem's extremely helpful post (on Gemfatale's blog) about blogging on iPads, I have decided to give it a go. This is my attempt so it might go wrong/ look terrible and it might not even get posted. I am trying out a new font for a bit of a change.

I thought I would introduce you to one of my favourite things at the moment...Accessorize's liquid highlighter. I have the Collection Shimmer Shades and really liked them but I still felt like I had a highlighter hole in my makeup bag. When I went to Reading to visit friends, Megan (who has a wonderful blog: megsbudgetboutique) told us she has recently bought it and loved it so we tried it out and fell in love too.

I of course ended up buying it from Superdrug and I'm so glad I did. It costs £7.00 normally but for some reason on the Superdrug website it says it's £3.95 so it must be reduced at the moment (even better) which I think is really reasonable considering it will last a long time as you don't need to use much at a time. I just dab a tiny amount across the top of my cheeks and it adds a lovely glow.

At first I was sceptical of the liquid idea because I hadn't seen one before but I actually prefer it to powder highlighters because it seems easier to apply.

Accessorize Highlighter, Superdrug

I think the packaging is horrendous and so tacky/cheap but I suppose you get what you pay for?

I do have to say that I'm a novice when it comes to highlighters but I do think this one is well worth the money and it's not exactly going to break the bank!

what i've been up to...

Hi I hope you're all alright!

So I haven't blogged a lot recently (apart from my latest videos). I only really have the excuse that I was doing uni exams, then I finished, had my birthday and my sister's hen weekend so I've been pretty busy lately. I've just started a three week stint at a primary school for experience because I think that's what I want to do after uni but I'm hoping to up my blogging.

I thought it might be nice to show you what I've been doing lately in pictures because everyone seems to like 'those Instagram posts' because you can be a bit nosey, enjoy!

VIDEO: Birthday Haul Part 2

Obviously if you read my blog then you would have seen that I did a Part 1 video for my birthday haul which was more about the clothes that I have been buying and getting around my birthday. This post is Part 2 of that haul and focuses more on beauty products like lipsticks and nail polishes (some of my favourite things).

I hope you enjoy! If you prefer you could click HERE to take you straight to the youtube page.

If you enjoy my videos then don't forget to subscribe or like. Would be great to have any ideas for future videos?

Thanks for reading.
