Current Non Beauty Favouites


As you may have noticed, I just posted my current beauty favourites post a little while ago. I've decided that I'd also do a non beauty favourites post to change things up a little.

FujiFilm Instax Mini 8: I was given this polaroid camera by my parents for christmas last year and I ADORE it! I love the way that you don't know what the photo looks like until you take it, and how it prints and develops right before your eyes. It's magic. Above is an example of one of the polaroids, which was taken at my 17th birthday party.

Ebay Coco Cat Iphone Case: I bought this case a few months ago when my case at the time, which was a hard plastic case, had broken. I wanted a rubber case which wouldn't crack/snap and that could provide a bit of protection to my phone. I browsed for a while on Ebay, before finding this one. I LOVE this case so much, and I guess others do too because I have received so many compliments about it at school. The case it super thick and sturdy, so I can be assured that my phone won't pop out of the case or the case will break. The only annoying thing about this however, is that fact that the white paint used on the whiskers is beginning to rub off a little. Oh well!

Flower Crowns: I've always loved the look of flower crowns, but I had never really found the type that I was looking for, until now. I now have three, one of which my lovely friend Melissa made for me. I love how I feel like a fairy when I wear one, which is slightly childish of me, but then again, I sort of am. I'm pretty sure I'll be buying more, as there are just sooo many beautiful types out there. Check out Lovisa for their range of crowns!

Tattoo Choker: I've loved 90s fashion/accessories for quite a while, so you could imagine my excitement when I found that Etsy.com had just about a billion people selling these chokers. I bought a set in black which contained a ring, bracelet and choker, but I'm definitely going to buy more. I'm thinking of getting either a light pink or turquoise one...or perhaps both/every colour I can get my hands on! Who remembers/ owned these from the late 90s/early 2000s?

I hope you liked this post, and please let me know if you'd like to see more like this!


Current Favourite Products

Hello my lovelies! Sorry, once again that it's been a while since I've posted on here, but as you could imagine, with school starting, I've been pretty busy. 

Today I thought I'd share my current favourite products/the products that I've been reaching for the most, with you. 

Clarins Be Long Mascara*: I've actually already done a post about this product here, so If you'd like a more in depth review, check that post out. Since that post however, I've really noticed how amazing my eyelashes are looking. The mascara contains Matrikine and Panthenol, which helps to strengthen each lash, thus encouraging lash growth. I have definitely noticed an increase in my lash length,(I wish I'd taken a before photo to compare length). which is great for me, because unfortunately I wasn't blessed with the longest eyelashes like my little brother. The formula is also amazingly smooth and creamy which allows the product to glide on really easily.

Bourjois Cream Blush in 01: This has been my go to blush as of late, because it is just so easy to quickly apply without over doing/under doing the colour. I apply this with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush, as I find this works better than using my fingers. The colour 01 is a gorgeous pale, peachy toned pink, perfect if you have a fair complexion like myself. I now want to try out all the other shades!

Lush Honey Trap Lip Balm: I've always loved the smell of the Lush lip products, but for some reason never actually purchased something from this range. My absolutely wonderful friend, Daphne, gave this to me recently for my 17th Birthday, so Daphne, if you are reading this, THANK YOU! I LOVE IT! The smell is a mixture of honey, white chocolate and vanilla, which are not scents I would usually think would go together, but they really do! The balm does a really good job at moisturizing the lips without leaving a thick, greasy residue on the surface afterwards. Also, the tin is pink, what's not to like about that!

Daisy by Marc Jacobs Eau So Fresh*: Again, I have already done a post on this perfume, here, so if you want to hear me talk about it in more depth, check out my full review. I'm not sure If I've mentioned before, but I like to switch up my perfumes every now and again, so as to not get bored by one scent. I'd been using Eau So Fresh for quite a while, so I switched back to Flower Bomb by Viktor and Rolf, occasionally using my body spray by Soap and Glory. Recently I decided to use Eau So Fresh again, and I've re-fallen in love with it! It's a slightly lighter and fruitier version of the first daisy perfume, making it wearable during the day. The smell of this just makes me think of Summer, which, if I'm feeling a bit down, lifts my spirit instantly! 

Have you tried any of these products? What have you been loving lately?
