Hey Guys! I hope you have all had a lovely month. Mine has been very stressful with AS level exams. I'm going to be honest with you, they were very hard. Especially as I didn't take the nicest of subjects. However, another month has passed and this can only mean that we are one step closer to summer and I have a May favourites video for you.I'm sorry for the lack of effort I have been putting into my blog recently but soon my exams will be finished by the end of next week so I will have plenty of time to post.
The video is available for you to watch down below or you can simply click on this link and this will take you straight to the video!

Have a lovely day!

DIY Tutorial: Marble Background For Blog Pictures

Good Morning guys! This week I was feeling very creative and inspired by other bloggers. A lot of you out there have noticed that many bloggers take their pictures with a lot effort put into them. A main theme lately is the marble background. It is absolutely gorgeous, right? But, many of us have not got a clue how bloggers achieve this look. I have managed to create my own marble background for £8 and I want to share it with you guys.

So, I have bought all the products you will need in order to make the blogging background and have had a go at making it. I have a video clip which will show you how to make the background so you can make your blog look more professional. 

Firstly, before following the clip you will need 3 things. Those 3 things are: a plain white canvas which is a suitable size to fit the roll, a marble adhesive roll and some scissors. I will leave the exact products I got below.

I hope this post helped you guys out and thanks for reading!

Why We Really Want It

So, today I was looking at a few of my recent purchases and noticed there was some sort of pattern going on. Everything I bought looked very similar. How bizarre. Did I actually want the product itself or the packaging? I'm still trying to figure this out now, haha! But, everything is rose gold and black. Am I buying these expensive products for the packaging or do I generally need/want the product. This may be something you could start to think about too.

Do you really need all of these products? Especially the Real Techniques Bold Metal Brush as it is a bit on the pricey side. Have you ever wanted a flat contour brush before seeing this one? Probably not (let's be honest). It's an odd shape and a powder brush will pretty much do the same thing. It's a very pretty looking brush which is £22 and does the same thing as your powder brush.

Makeup Revolution on the other hand is no splurging, their prices are so freaking good and so are their products! But before this palette I had a minimum interest in blushers. I was contemplating getting the Naked Flushed palette but stumbled along this rose gold winner. The simplicity of the products packaging is what got me attached to this palette. It looks great in pictures! But, have I actually worn the product itself of spent £6 just to admire it's beautiful packaging.

You could walk into Chanel only to browse because you don't have that sort of money. However, a few minutes later you somehow manage to find the money to purchase one of their bronzing bases because of that lovely black and rose gold packaging it has. You will walk out of the shop with £32 less thinking, what even is a bronzing base? Haven't you got a bronzing powder at home already that does all the same contouring stuff, if not better.

Finally, to end with I would just like to apologise for all of my ramblings above. If you guys didn't get where I was coming from, I was implicating that we buy products for their packaging and it will usually be something with a hint of rose gold. Let's face it we are still obsessed with rose gold and will buy anything with rose gold on it. I need to take the time to think whether I actually need the product before I buy it. Not because it will look good in a blog picture or because the packaging has a hint of rose gold on it.

So, what about you guys? Do you need to do the same?

I would also like to apologise for my lack of posts as I have my AS exams starting next week. Someone save me?

Spring Evening Makeup Look

Hey guys! I'm really sorry for slacking with my blog and everything lately. As an A Level student I am a very busy person with exams coming up in just under two weeks. Therefore my blog content has been pretty poor at the moment. However, as soon as this time period is over I have the whole Summer to do what I want and that will be blogging etc. 

So, you can expect to see a lot more of me in Mid-June onwards. However, for now I have a Spring Evening Makeup Look which you can watch on this blog post or over on my YouTube channel by clicking here. Or you can watch it down below! :)

I hope you enjoy my video and I hope you all understand my lovelies!
