Halloween Tag

Hello lovelies so the gorgeous nena tagged me to do this, seeing as though its a bit different i thought i'd give it a go :)
1. Faviourite Halloween Movie?
apart from horrors (cause yes i do totally love my horrors haha) my faviourite Halloween film would have to be a nightmare before Christmas

2. what age did you stop trick-or-treating??
to be honest i never really did it, me and my friends used to have sleepovers at each others houses and play bobbing apples etc, i think i stopped doing that when i was 10 haha

3. Faviourite Halloween Costume you have worn??
my faviourite costume i have worn was probably when i went as a scary fairy, but my faviourite costume would probably be my handy work two Halloweens ago when i transformed my boyfriend into the joker with the use of lippie, face paint and eye shadow :)
me and the boyfriend as the joker <3
my friend bubbles and i as scary fairies

4. what are you going to be this year??
sadly i have had to have a brace again recently so im thinking maybe Katy perry's look from the last friday night video, my second choice is cruella de vill, oo choices ;)

5.Do you like going to haunted attractions??
when i went to madam tussauds with my boyfriend i refused to go in the bit where people jump out at you and instead chose to leave through the lovely childrens doors painted with lovely balloons,  i think this answers the question ;) 
6. Vampires or Werewolves??
ah totally vampires, secret twilight fan haha

7. Faviourite Halloween candy??
its not really anything halloweeny, but definitely strawberry laces

8. Do you decorate your house??
cutting a pumpkin is as far as i go decorating my house
9.Least faviourite Costume??
probably a spider haha

10. have you ever repeated a costume and what was it??
probably a witch when i was little, it was kind of the norm really 

11. Do you believe in ghosts??
some things i see on tv make me go woah and believe in things but who knows 

12. Scariest Halloween??
about three Halloweens ago me and my friends thought it would be a good idea to go camping in the woods on halloween, how stupid were we, apart from my best friend scaring me all night it was pretty fun haha

the boyf and our pumpkin timmy 
me and the girls last halloween

Feel free everyone to do this tag

So what do you think of Halloween??

Vivo for Tesco

Hello lovelies, now i know your probably thinking not another Vivo post, but i thought i would add my view on the new range exclusive for Tesco, most of you probably already know about this new range, but if you dont it is basically an affordable brand with prices ranging from £1 to £6, the products include, lipsticks, foundations, and little sets not often seen in supermarket brands...after browsing through different posts i decided to invest in the Ultimate Base Concealer Kit and the Baked Shimmer Palette (im thinking of going back for a lippie for £1.99 they smell yummy, seem quite pigmented and the swatches have lasted for ages on my hand)
I have been using the products the past two weeks so here's my thoughts

Ultimate Base Concealer Kit

i got slightly excited when i spotted this, my go to concealers usually consist of my Confessions of a Concealaholic by Benefit, however im rapidly running out and hitting pan on most of the items in the set and their slightly to expensive to repurchase atm so i thought this would be a good alternative.

this set includes to shades of concealer, a translucent powder and an faviourite bit about this, definitely has to be the illuminater, infact iv'e been using this instead of my HighBeam!!
it has a really nice colour and shine to it, and tbh it seems worth more than £6..i like the concealers and they give reasonable coverage, however they seem to dry my skin quite a bit :(, iv'e been using these more under my eyes than to cover blemishes, as for the translucent powder i haven't really used it , altogether for £6 i think you definitely get your moneys worth and a little more 

Baked Shimmer Palette
Chocolate Box
my eyes were immediately drawn to this i think it was down to the lovely colours, the set itself includes four baked eyeshadows and a Blush, the colours are a range of bronze and purples, for the price these seem to be reasonably pigmented and i love the shades, the blush is also lovely and pretty pigmented, although i think its slightly to dark for my skin (this might be cause im a bit heavy handed haha)

for £5 i really like this set, and i would definitely think about investing in another shade!!

Altogether i really like what i have seen from the Vivo range, although its yet another excuse to spend even more money whilst browsing through Tesco haha, i think the only fault with this brand is that the packaging is slightly dated, they seem to have stayed safe with the design, however as my mother always says you cant judge a book by its cover ;) haha 

So what do you guys think of Vivo?? do you think its good value for money??

St Moriz Mousse

Hello lovelies, so its the end of our so called summer and i sadly have no tan to show for the small amount of hot weather we have had ;), so i thought a bit of self tan would brighten up my rather white looking skin (boohoo haha) i seriously think i am the only person who cannot tan whether it be sitting in the garden, sunning myself on the beach or even just using a gradual or instant self tan, yes that's right i cannot even get self tan right :S...most of the summer i have been using Lauren Goodger's, Lauren's Way tanning lotion and although the massive hype around it, i just cant seem to get along with it, yeah okay i have a lovely tan when applied but after showering 6 or 7 hours after it has developed (or in the morning) im left with, well no tan at all, not the golden tan everyone seems to talk about (please anyone who may know where im going wrong advice would be wonderful haha), tbh it would be my go to going out tan but not for every day use!!

Anyway i decided to go for something else, from reading the hype about St Moriz i decided to take a trip down to savers to pick up the £3 bottle (hell if it doesn't work its not the end of the world right??)..i applied St Moriz last night, and well i absolutely loved it, the mousse was so easy to apply, infact its practically foolproof (no doubt why it worked for me haha), and i was left with an instantly lovely tan, as it began to develop it produced a lovely natural golden colour, and after a shower i still have a lovely golden glow!!

hallelujah i finally think i have found my HG tanner, after many many different bottles, brands, and price ranges haha

Pros- the smell isint that off putting like many, i much prefer the mild biscuity smell of this, to the quite strong smell of many others
its practically fool proof (believe me this sentence is coming from an idiot when it comes to tanning)
its about £3 a bottle, so if it doesn't work its not the end of the world, also for such a small price its such high quality 

Cons- i haven't really had this on long enough to judge, but i know my friends who wear it religiously have complained about it scaling after about three days (not really a look you want)
i decided to buy the normal one to be on the safe side, however to have that stronger colour i think i would purchase the darker one next time :)

So what do you guys think of St Moriz??
Whats your faviourite self tanner??, and are there anymore foolproof products out their ;)??

There's something about Soap and Glory

Hello lovelies, i hope your all having a great start to the week, now i know it wont come as a shock to many of you but i am an avid Soap and Glory fan, ever since the day my friend produced the plumping lip gloss out of her handbag, i have been hooked on the quality of these lovely products aswell as the packaging.

I have gone through countless amounts of handfood, and my mother does not help as she is also an avid fan..recently my skin has been feeling sorry for itself, and soap and glory over any other skincare products does the job brilliantly, each face product i have used has left my skin feeling soft and clear as well as smelling lovely and being hassle free!! newest addictions are the face soap clarity and the fab pore facial peel, between me and my mum we have gone through two tubs of this is a matter of a month :S

So what do you guys think of Soap and Glory??
to all those that haven't tried it GO AND DO IT haha

Disney Couture Mawi Collection

Hello lovelies, i hope your having a great weekend, now there are two things that i absolutely love, the first being Disney and the second being Jewellery, so the fact that im an avid Disney Couture fan is basically stating the obvious.. now i dont know about you guys but im so excited about the new collaboration with Mawi, to deliver a collection dedicated to the great Minnie Mouse herself ;) and it is safe to say that i am absolutely loving this MINNIE MAWI collection :)..the pieces are quite elegant with that touch of Disney Couture charm..although these little beauties will set you back a bit ranging from £34 to £130, but each are gold plated with either fauz pearls or swarvoski crystals.
Personally im loving the Pearl necklace, a long while ago i had a similar necklace i wore without fail, which sadly fell off my neck on a night out and ended up under a car (i sadly picked up all the beads haha)..i have been looking for a replacement ever since and i think this may be it :)
What do you think of this new collection??
