L’OrΓ©al lipstick collection part 2 πŸ’„

“Put on your lipstick and hustle”

Hey pretty people πŸ’• It’s makeup Monday and part 2 of my L’OrΓ©al lipstick collection is here. How exciting ☺️ These are all the non Collection Exclusive shades that I own including glosses / liquid lipsticks. If you’re interested in seeing which L’OrΓ©al lipsticks I own and what I think of them, then do read on. πŸ’„

Colour Riche liptstick Mon Jules 430.
This is one of my favourite red lipsticks and has been for a good few months. It’s a deep burgundy red shade with a matte finish and is perfect for a vamped up look. I love to wear this shade on a night out because I find darker lips make more of a statement and creates a sexier, glamorous vibe. I do wear this lipstick during the day time too because I love the colour so much. This lipstick stays on well but does need to be retouched after eating or drinking.

Infallible lipgloss More Of Bora Bora 306.
I love the name of this lipgloss because obviously it makes me think of beautiful Bora Bora and let’s face it, who doesn’t want to be thinking about Paradise? When it comes to the lipgloss itself however, I don’t love it as much as I love the name. I very rarely wear this. I thought this lipgloss was going to have a slightly pink hue to it but I find it to be completely clear on the lips. For me, I prefer a gloss to have a lot of colour. Even though I don’t wear this lipgloss a lot, I think it would be great to wear over a matte lipstick if you wanted a more glossed effect but personally, I wouldn’t wear it on it’s own.

Colour Riche Extraordinaire Molto Mauve 500.
This is a gorgeous liquid lipstick which is perfect for natural, plumped up lips. I love the colour of this lipstick, which is a nude pink shade with a glossy sheen. The texture of this liquid lipstick is really soft and creamy and I just love the look this lipstick creates. It’s a lovely shade for daytime wear and leaves you pout perfect.

Infallible Matte Max Disturbia 006.
Sadly this is the only L’OrΓ©al lipstick I own which I’m not such a fan of. This is a lip ‘pen’ with a sponge applicator which makes it so easy to apply, and when worn it feels like you have nothing on. The thing that doesn’t do it for me is the colour. The shade of ‘Disturbia’ is a bright red / orange shade but the colour payout was a lot more subtle than what I expected. I thought it was going to be really bright and bold but I find the colour isn’t that strong and it fades quite quickly. You have to reapply a lot throughout the day if you want your lips to pop!

Right! Thats all my L’OrΓ©al lippies πŸ’‹ I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my reviews on these products, there will be more lipstick collection posts coming soon so if you do like these posts then you have lots to look forward to πŸ˜‰ If you own any L’OrΓ©al lipsticks I would love to know your thoughts on them. If any of you have tried the Infallible Matte Max collection please let me know what you think of yours as I would love to see what other people’s opinions are and if you feel differently to me. Each to there own ect!

Thankyou always for reading, with lots of love ❀️ Jennie, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The Throwback Tag πŸ’•

imageHey cuties 😘 Happy Easter Sunday. I hope you’re all enjoying your day today and that you have eaten lots of chocolate and spent happy time with your loved ones.Β It’s 6:30 pm and I haven’t even received an Easter egg yet.. I’m starting to think perhaps my parents didn’t get me one this year! They’ll be home any minute now so I shall have to wait and see if I have got one or not. I want chocolate!

I really wanted to upload a blog post today just off the cuff and I was wondering what I could write about which didn’t require too much planning / picture taking ect. I was going to write and tell you about my weekend so far since it’s been pretty crazy, but I decided that will be a post for tomorrow and instead today I am going to answer the questions to ‘The Throwback Tag’. I really enjoy answering Tag questions, so over time I will probably be doing a lot of Tag posts mixed in with my other posts. But since I’ve rambled long enough, I’m going to crack on with it and answer these questions.

1πŸ‘ΆπŸ». What year were you born in? – 1995.
2πŸ“Έ.Do you have any pictures of yourself from when you were younger? If you do, show them. – I have a couple on my phone from when I was looking through some old photo albums, can you tell I was obsessed with Bob the Builder?

3πŸ“Ί. What TV shows did you grow up watching? – Caillou! None of my friends have even heard of this show but this was my fave back in the day. If you’ve ever seen it let me know! It’s not a TV show, but The Little Rascals was one of my favourite movies growing up. As a teenager, Disney Channel was my one and only ❀️
4✨. What did you want to be when you were younger? – I wanted to be an actress or a singer (in my dreams, you should hear my voice).
5πŸ‘Ύ. What were your favorite toys to play with? – I had so many! I loved my kitchen set and my Baby chou chou doll.
6πŸ™ˆ. What’s the most embarrassing thing that you can remember doing? – As a child I don’t ever remember feeling too embarassed. Something that’s always stuck with me is a time that I waved back at this guy thinking he was waving at me, but he was actually waving at someone behind me. It’s so strange how that’s always stayed with me considering it’s not even that embarassing, we all do it, many a time. As a teenager I can safely say the most embarassing moment I can remember is when I was at an indoor waterpark and as I walked over to my friends to tell them how awesome one particular slide was, I realised my bikini top had come loose and my whole boob was on display. The shame.
7πŸ’ƒπŸ». Three songs you loved to listen to as a child. – These questions are tricky! I can’t really remember what I used to listen to as a child. My Dad and I always loved ‘Brimful of Asha’ but other than that I can’t think of any. Oh, I used to love ‘All the things she said’ by T.a.T.u and ‘Road Rage’ by Catatonia. πŸ’πŸ»
8πŸ•΅. What was one funny thing you dressed up as for Halloween when you were younger? – I never ever dressed as anything giggly, every year I dressed up as a witch because it was the easiest costume to make / find. I would love to dress up as Mike Wazowski though, that would be jokes.
9πŸ’πŸ». What was something weird you used to do as a child? – At school back when my friends were all playing together in the playground, I would sometimes just walk around on my own and play by myself, making up games as I went. Did anyone else do this?
10βœ–οΈ. What’s the scariest thing you remember that happened to you when you were younger? – I don’t ever remember anything really scary to happen to me, so I’m quite lucky. Sorry there was no juicy story with that answer, I mean I cracked open my head when I was 2 but I don’t actually remember that so the answer can’t count, or can it!? πŸ˜‹

So that’s all the questions and answers for this tag! I hope you enjoyed reading my answers πŸ™‚

If you have done this tag then let me know in the comments below, if you haven’t then Tag! You’re it!

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day, lots and lots of love ❀️ Jennie, xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The TMI tag. Tag Tuesday β€οΈ

imageHey beautiful people. 🌸. It’s Tuesday! Tmi Tuesday. Tag Tuesday. I thought I’d make a thing of it, why not? I love alliteration. I’ve answered these questions on my youtube channel, but that was a very long time ago and things change! I thought it would be fun to answer these questions here on the blog ☺️ If you’re feeling a bit nosey, then go on, have a read ❀️

1πŸ‘—. What are you wearing? – I am currently all snuggled up in my PJ’s ready for bed.
2❀️. Ever been in love? – This is a hard one to answer, I think maybe I’ve thought I was in love with someone, but looking back I realise it wasn’t true love at all. I’m going to say no.
3πŸ’”. Ever had a terrible breakup? – Yes, the worst. I wasn’t even dumped, just ignored and ignored until I found out this guy had started seeing someone else and I gave up. We have been on and off for the past two years which has been Hell, but I’m finally over it now. Bye bye baby πŸ‘‹πŸΌ
4πŸ’ƒπŸ». How tall are you? – I have no idea, about 5 foot 4?
5πŸ’πŸ». How much do you weigh? – Again I’m not sure, I never weigh myself.
6🎨. Any tattoos? – None at all, I’ve considered getting one but there’s nothing really that I want as a tattoo. In Malia I tried to convince one of my new found friends to get a matching Slim Shady tattoo with me, luckily he said no. πŸ˜‚
7πŸ’Ž. Any piercings? – Only my ears!
8πŸ‘«. OTP? – Chuck and Blair / Aria and Ezra. ❀️
9πŸŽ₯. Favorite Show? – I would have said Pretty Little Liars, but the season 6 finale left me feeling dissapointed. I still love it, but not as much as I used to. Gossip Girl is probably my favourite TV show, and I love the Inbetweeners and I’m a Celebrity, get me out of here. OH. Take me out. How could I forget Take Me Out?
10🌟. Favorite bands? – 5 Seconds of Summer and Little Mix. I will always love One Direction too.
11πŸ’•. Something you miss? – I’m not sure I miss anything at the moment. ☺️
12πŸ‘―. Favorite song? – FEED EM TO THE LIONS. Picking a favourite song is hard, I have a lot. At the moment I’m loving Secret Love Song part 2 by Little Mix but there are so many other songs that I just love.
13πŸŽ‚. How old are you? – 21.
14♑️. Zodiac sign? – Capricorn.
15❀️. Quality you look for in a partner? – Someone who is funny, loving and loyal. Someone who wants adventure. Someone who is ambitious. The list is endless…
16πŸ’­. Favorite Quote? – Very tricky since I have so many. I’ve always loved the saying ‘When life’s a bitch, be a pimp’. But I’m all about the positive vibes and spreading the love so I think I’ll also throw in ‘Love is all you need, all you need is Love’ as one of my favourite quotes. Love love love. Also, ‘Try to be a rainbow in someone elses cloud’ because I want to make others happy, especially my loved ones. ❀️
17✨. Favorite actor? – I’m going to say Cameron Diaz because I enjoy every movie that she’s in.
18🌸. Favorite color? – PINK!
19🎼. Loud music or soft? – Usually Loud.
20πŸ’”. Where do you go when you’re sad? – Bed.
21πŸ’§. How long does it take you to shower? – 10 minutes?
22πŸ™†πŸ». Β How long does it take you to get ready in the morning? – An hour when in a rush, can be longer if I’m going out to socialise and it’s not an early start.
23πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ. Ever been in a physical fight? – Sort of. A little play fight turned into a proper ‘fight’ but no one was really hurt.
24❀️. Turn on? – A nice smile.
25😷. Turn off? – Bad hygiene. Gross.

41πŸ’πŸ». Β Last time you were insulted? – Today πŸ˜‚ One of my managers said I looked as though I had been dragged through a bush, does she not understand the bed head look?

48❀️. Have you ever used it? – Oh God no, people chat me up, not the other way round πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
49πŸ‘­. Last time you hung out with anyone? – Like an hour ago…
50πŸ“. Who should answer these questions next? – Anyone who is reading this now who has yet to do this tag. Go go go!

International day of happiness β˜€οΈ Three little quotes πŸŒΊ

Hello beautiful people ❀️ It’s International day of Happiness today so I thought I’d write up a little post sharing with you some of my favourite quotes which promote positivity and happiness. I want to spread some good vibes and hopefully put a smile on someone’s face / help someone to feel more positive.

I’m a huge lover of inspirational quotes, I post a lot of quote pictures on my instagram and I used to have a wall of positive quotes in my bedroom. I say a wall, it was actually a door πŸ™Š When I move house and have a proper room to call my own, I will definitely be sticking up lots and lots of quotes. The word ‘quote’ is beginning to sound weird now πŸ˜‹

So here’s a few of my favourite quotes. Enjoy. πŸŒΊβ˜€οΈπŸ’•

‘Think like a proton and stay positive’ β˜€οΈ Is this not the cutest little saying ever? I love it! I don’t even know what a Proton is to be honest, I got a U in additional science but hey, this is cute and staying positive will always make life fabulous πŸ’πŸ»

‘What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives haven’t even happened yet’ ❀️ This is one of my favourite quotes of all time. It’s true, we all have so many incredible days to look forward to, which is something we should always keep in mind. This saying can fill one with hope and excitement and whether it’s a good day or a not so good day, this is always something to think about. The future is bright β˜€οΈβ€οΈ

‘Decide every morning that you are in a good mood’ ❀️ When you wake up each morning, wear a smile and think, ‘today’s going to be a great day’, the chances are you are going to have a great day. Waking up feeling positive will set the vibes for the rest of the day. Be grateful for this day and make it a good one πŸ’ͺ🏼image

I could go on for hours and hours posting different quotes / sayings. There are so many great ones out there! I’m definitely going to be doing more positive posts with lots of different quotes so stay tuned if you wanna be filling your world with good vibes. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

What’s your favourite quote and how did you celebrate International day of happiness? I spent the day with my family and my little nephew was with us too, which was lovely. I love him so much.

I hope you’ve all had a great day today and I hope all your days are filled with happiness and love.

Lots and lots of love, thankyou for reading. Love, Jennie ❀️ xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

DC ❀️ Thinking about the future πŸ‘

Deep Chats❀️

Right, I’ve been thinking and it’s time for a DC. By ‘DC’ I mean Deep Chat. It’s time for a deep chat. I love a good DC. At the end of a night out, I love sitting down with the girls for a tipsy, emotional chat about our feelings. You’ll probably find me confessing my love for cheesy chips, or if I’ve had a little too much to drink I’ll be reflecting on past relationships. I just love to talk about my thoughts and feelings, which is why I’m going to have a chinwag with you all about exactly what goes on in my mind. Are you excited? You should be. Or not, I’ve no idea where to start or what ‘feelings’ I even want to talk about.

At the moment, the thoughts that are dominating my mind are all about the future and what I want from life. Every night I go to bed and I can’t fall asleep because all I can think about is how I’m going to be successful and more importantly, how I’m going to decorate my new bedroom. I can’t wait to move house, I’m too buzzed. Hopefully I’ll be moving in the next couple of weeks if all my wishes come true and it will be amazing. The house I have my sights on is my dream house, I will cry tears of happiness if this house becomes my home.

Living with my Nan is tough, it’s very crowded and unorganised. I don’t have anywhere to hang my clothes, they’re dumped on the floor like a standard floordrobe which is probably where they would be anyway, however it would be nice to have the option to hang my clothes up. Half of my belongings are in storage, in fact more than half of my belongings. I have guitars, nintendo wii’s and other random items still sat in a storage unit somewhere in Spain. I doubt it’s even still there to be honest, it’s probably been dumped in the sea somewhere or some jammy dodger has taken it for themselves. Meh oh well, it’s nothing I can’t rebuy! Thankfully all my sentimental belongings are in storage, but this storage unit is actually in England. Hallelujah! When I move, I can’t wait to finally have all of my stuff with me where it belongs. It disheartens me to know that I have spent so much money on things just for them to be unused, gathering dust. But it will be okay, I’ll get them back eventually. There’s probably a lot of stuff in storage which I could get rid of too, maybe I’ll have a car boot sale. That could be a lot of fun! Any money I make will go straight into my savings pot.

I can’t wait to save!!!! Now I’m working full time, I’m finally going to be able to save my money and not have to worry about what I’m spending. Of course I will still be sensible, but I’ll be able to put my money in a savings account without having to take it back out again before the end of the month. Ballin πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’° I’m going to get one of the money pots which can’t be opened unless you smash it with a hammer, that’s the only way I can trust myself not to spend the money because if I transfer it into my savings account I always end up transfering it straight back out. I have no self control, I could do with a financial advisor I swear! I really really am dedicated to saving up my money now, I can’t wait to fill up my little pot (which I haven’t even bought yet, ha). It’s going to be amazing.

I don’t get paid from my new job until the end of April, so I just have this last payday from my old job to get me by and then I’mma be on top of the world. I’ll be trading in my Vodka for Champagne and my Topshop for Tiffanys. Nah, not really. I just wanna SAVE SAVE SAVE. And then it will be onto my next project.. Learning to drive. We’ll leave that chat for another time though πŸ˜‹

Aw, I do love writing away my thoughts. I’ll definitely be doing this more often ☺️ I like being happy, but that doesn’t mean I can’t embrace different feelings and emotions and hey, I can even talk about my happy feelings and it will still be deep! Woooo, πŸ’ƒπŸ»

What are you most looking forward to about your future? Tell me all the things you’re excited for. As you now know, I’m excited to move house and save my money!

I hope you enjoyed this post, thankyou for reading. Love love love, Jennie ❀️ xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Whatup whatup πŸ‘‹πŸΌ right, I’m going to write this blog post, play some Solitaire and then go to bed. I NEED an early night seriously 😫 I’m always so tired in the morning but when it comes to night time I just get a new lease of life and I never want to go to sleep. It’s so annoying πŸ™„

Today was my second shift with my new jov and I had my trainer come in to go through some stuff with me, I learnt so much from her and she’s coming back again soon to teach me more. I feel like I’m really going to learn a LOT about makeup from my new job and I’m excited. My account manager’s on holiday at the moment, but I can’t wait for her to get back because she’s amazing at what she does and I know I’m going to learn a lot from her πŸ€— HURRY HOME PLEASE!

My old area manager is just as fantastic, today I picked up my leaving card and pressie from her. She’s soo lovely, I never expected her to get me anything. I’ve left her a thankyou card too, to thank her for being an amazing manager. I love sending thankyou cards, it’s nice to show your appreciation for the people you care for 😊

My babes Beth was working today so I spent my second break with her, we went to Maccies so I could buy a large coke and fries purely for the monopoly stickers. I live for Mcdonalds Monopoly. I had an instant win today but it was for porridge, too bad, if it had been fries I would of been over the moonπŸŸπŸŒ™ I really want to win one of the main prizes this year, it would be so cool. I’ll definitely be getting Maccies again tomorrow.

After work I went for dinner at Bella Italia with my Dad and my sister which was cute. Family time is the best time, hopefully when my mum’s home we can go out for meals more often. ❀️ My sister and I shared a starter, the Pizza Spirale. It’s such a yummy dish but way too filling for one person alone. I had spag bol for my main, I always get Spaghetti Bolognaise from Bella! It’s yummy πŸπŸ˜‹ For dessert I had chocolate ice cream, it was soooo good! I wish I could have it again right now πŸ˜‹

I really want to start writing more about my thoughts and feelings so I’m going to start writing about different topics, at the moment I’m very content with life so I don’t need to vent my feelings on my blog. I’m very happy to be happy but I want to write more deep and meaningful posts. I’mma get my thinking cap on πŸ˜‰

In fact, I think I know exactly where I’m going to start… Stay tuned πŸ˜‰

I hope you’ve all had a lovellly day today.

Lot’s of love, Jennie


16/03/2016 ✨

HELLO EVERYBODY πŸ‘‹πŸΌ Another day, another dollar πŸ’° Today was my very first day at my new job, although it doesn’t so much feel like a new job since I have moved literally one counter over. For those of you who don’t know, I used to work for the L’OrΓ©al makeup counter in Boots and now I’ve just switched over to work for a different makeup counter. I will miss working for L’OrΓ©al but I am so excited to finally be working full time for the first time in my life. I feel a stronger sense of responsibility with this job and I am dedicated to being the best beauty consultant / MUA that I can be, making sure I give great makeovers and great customer service.

Today I worked 9-6. I can’t even remember the last time I was out of bed by 9am. I set my alarm for 6:30 today and luckily my dad rang me to wake me up, because I would have slept through it otherwise. Once again, my dad is my hero! I made it to work on time, put out some delivery and then my area manager came in to do some training with me. We had to go into Next too so she could buy me my uniform, I have a blazer now and everything, I feel very smart.

After my area manager left, I went onto the shop floor so I could get selling. It wasn’t too busy today since it’s midweek, but I had a few customers and did a few makeovers which was fun. I hope all my customers left feeling beautiful.

Home time came around quicker than I imagined, the day went so fast! I went to the pub with my dad so I could use their wifi and watch the Pretty Little Liars finale. Warning, don’t read on if you haven’t watched it yet.

I was so dissapointed with the finale, I wanted one of the liars to be a twin. I feel so sad for Ali, it’s such a shame that the person she trusts, loves and relies on has let her down this way. The best part of the episode was the Haleb and Ezria scenes. I absolutely love Spencer and Caleb as a couple but Hanna and Caleb’s scene together gave me all the feels. I wish they hadn’t have kissed though, poor Spencer πŸ˜” Even though I didn’t love the PLL finale, I’m still going to miss it. Until the next series 🍷

For dinner, Dad and I got a cheeky Chinese takeaway. Chinese takeaway is definitely one of my favourite meals to have. I’m such a fussy eater so I only get egg fried rice and chicken in breadcrumbs, sometimes I get noodles too. Apparantly chicken in breadcrumbs is actually a Polish dish, but I always ask for it when I get a Chinese takeaway 😝

I’ll be hitting the hay soon since I have another 9-6 shift tomorrow. Help!!!

I hope you’ve all had a good day today. Tell me about it in the comments. Thanks for reading. Lots of love, Jennie xxxxxxxxxxxx
