My Tiny DIY | Pot Organiser


well, I have been wanting to sort out my room for a while now so I got a sweet pot given to me so I thought I would show you what I did with it....

By the way... this is SO SIMPLE

What you will need;

A tube or pot ( preferably clear)


Paint ( Mines Pink Acrylic )

Decoration of your choice



First, I had to get rid of the sticker which was on the pot. ( I used water and scissors worked a trick :D )
Then I had to dry it.


I used newspaper over my floor and put the paint on that.

I then painted the tub , making sure that the paint was in the same direction so it would not look weird when dry.

Here's my first coat and I did to do MANY more!


Here's my fourth....

Finally, I got this which was thickly painted. I didn't pain the bottom but around the edge of it.

To make it more me and match my room more, I added this shiny ribbon which I would usually put around presents.

I used my to put hair brushes in but Nail varnishes or makeup brushes would by good too.

I hope to do more little DIY posts because like I said I'm in the middle of organising my room.

MAC Creme Cup Review


I have been looking through different Mac Videos online and on their website. I found this lipstick which is apart of the Sheer Collection  called Crème Cup.

I wanted a new lipstick which was different from my others. I'm not going to lie , I did click the wrong one but It was this one or another so it did not matter to me much.

Its a shiny glossy nude/pink colour.

 When it first arrived, I had a really bad day at School and when I saw the Package I screamed. It make me completely happy that it had arrived. Sad , I know.

As my first MAC lipstick, I had high hopes for it. I love the packaging and it goes perfect in my lip stick holder.

I thought personally that it would have been bigger but oh well. I tried the colour on and I feel in love with it.

It lasted a 30-40 Minute bike ride which I was very impressed with.

I'm hoping to do a full MAC Make-up Look soon because I have been getting different pieces from their ranges.

The smell of the lipstick reminds me so much of Cadburys Crème Egg and it sounds weird but it also tastes like it too which I believe is a bonus :D

I understand that this was quite short but I thought hat it was needed to be honest.

I need more shades so let me know which ones are in your collection.

Get Ready With Me Benefit Style (plus Reviews)


Well I thought that since I was going out that a get ready with me was needed. I wanted to write a review on the benefit makeup kit that I brought a couple of weeks ago so I thought that I could combine them.

Firstly I done my hair in soft curls. I will link a tutorial that I used -->  (Tanya Burr)

I used the Remington Wand with has different setting. I used 190 temperature. I ,also, used L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray which was amazing and the curls lasted all night and the next day.


I used a benefit Triple Performance Facial Emulsion first- I love this product for my skin it's light and helps my skin feel fresh.

The Benefit kit I used was How To Look The Best At Everything in Medium. Overall opinion , I lovely the packaging and inside the box it had step by step instructions on how to apply and it comes with a mirror.

I have a sample of this by I have not used it yet. Firstly, it said to used the porefessional first. I love this product and I found that it helped my makeup look flawless. The shade was perfect for my skin especially since I'm a little pale at the moment ( Fake tan is at the ready )

I put this over my nose , under my eyes and any dry skin that I found.

Then I used Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation. WOW WOW WOW is all I can say. I love this foundation and its a strong contender for my prom foundation as I'm testing different products at the moment. It makes your skin look so flawless and natural. This shade was perfect.

 The next step was to conceal , it was the benefit boi-ing. The kit came wit two different shades and it said to mix to get correct shade. I mainly used the light shade. I personally it did not like this maybe because I used my ring finger (lightest finger) to apply next time I will used a brush.

The kit did not come with any eye shades or eye brow so I used MAC Charcoal Brown on my eyebrows. I wanted simple eyes so I skipped any eye shadows.

Sadly the kit did not come with Benefit mascara ... well it did come with a free There Real but I cant find it any where , I have searched but no luck so far. I did though use Bare Minerals Lash Domination which is just as good.

I lined my bottom water eye with my new Rimmel London Scandaleyes in Black.

To powder , the kit come with a powder called I'm cute as a bunny Honey. I did not used the brush it came with but my own Avon brush which I use all the time. The powder really finished the look and it set everything. I skipped blush because I felt that the look was pretty much finished.

For my lips , I used MAC Crème cup which is a pinky toned lipstick.

So that the finished look.

 I skipped the outfit. I wore a QUIZ skater dress with thick black tights and out cut boots.

Nails, I used Rimmel London Blue Eyed Girl and a white nail pen to do a swirly design. ( Sorry about the poor skin around the nail)

So that's it , hope you liked this as it was a bit of a combination.

Summer Make Up Look #1 (... And Film Review)


Well Saturday I was going out to see the brand new film Divergent and it was quite sunny for rainy old Britain so I won't that I would do a Summery makeup look for a change.

I have been loving the orange lip but I have never really worn it myself. So I thought I would try it for the cinema.

I used a new moisturiser , 24/7 Dry Skin Cream. I have been getting really dry skin at the moment and this is amazing for my face and body...... Review coming soon!

So as a base , I used a real techniques Buffing brush and my new Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in No 53 Light Beige. I think this shade is a shade to dark for me but I just took it down my neck to blend.

I buffed this into my skin in circular motions working around my face.

Using the same brush , I used Rimmel London Wake Me UP Concealer around my eyes, nose and any blemishes.

Eyebrows, I used this tectonic powder and I used both brown shades mixed together; used a body shop angled brush. I set them with the benefit Gimme Brow in Light Medium.

I wanted a simple eye due to the powerful lip so I used Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Pink-Gold all over the eye.

I have been loving 17 Wild Curls Mascara and I was perfect for this look. It gives great volume and length too.

I powdered with the normal stay matte powder. I did not use any blush or bronzer because I thought it would have been to much.

Then to the lips , 17 Lip Crayon. I love this colour and its so easy to apply. It's a mix between a lip stick and a gloss.

SO that's the finish makeup look. ( PS the fringe is not always like that I have pushed it all back)

FILM REVIEW- Divergent

I loved the film. I was a bit worried it was going to be the same as Hunger games. It was a bit  but different at the same time. The story line was good. Its set in the future and after a world war. Chicago was were the story was based in this film. There's a wall surrounding Chicago stopping the outside world in and to keep the peace. The people are divided into groups of their personality. It is decided by people taking a test, however, people who don't fit in are known as going against the system and are called Divergents. The film is about a young girl who is finding out who she is and making friends and enemies along the way.

That's not the best description but its such a good film. The main girl and her brother are actually the actor and actress who are playing Hazel and Gus in Fault In Our Stars which I'm REALLY looking forward too.

I give it a Gee Rating of ... **** ( I have no idea what a Gee Rating is but whatever)

So That's that really , hope you liked the make up look and I hope you enjoy the film if you go and see it because I Loved it.
