Favourite summer time bikinis

Hello Lovelies! 

So I know I have been terrible at blogging recently but I have been having family time and chillaxing sans internet and phone. 

So holiday soon= yay. 

Which also means last minute panic buying! So I found myself in Marks and Sparks (M&S) avec my mother and sister thinking there will be no bikinis which I would like! And then I found the boy equivalent of Hawaiian swimming trunks. Yes hold on to your hats ladies. 
I love this! I think its so pretty and floral and tropical! Definitely goes to show the old saying dont judge a book by its cover! Well done M&S! Im thinking a tan some chunky gold bangles and an overside beach bag=beach goddess

When reaching for botox and age renewal creams remember this

'Ageing is a luxury many people dont have' Caroline Hirons. Well said. 

Mantra for the day


Smash box primer

Ok so i bought the smash box primer after hearing amazing things! And was put off by the heafty price tag and when it was delivered i was shocked about how small the product was! 
12ml for 12.50 did seem quite excessive! The product itself is good for keeping away oil and doesnt clog pores but my bank account and i are still in shock. But overall I do like the product but disagree with the pricing. 

Chanel bronzing Makeup Base

I recently purchased the chanel makeup base after hearing amazing reviews from it and wanted a cream bronzer that would last for ages! And ta dah! I found it. The bronzer is amazing and a staple for my summer travel bag! Yay! It gives you a glowy healthy matte finish! And is suitable for all skin tones as its buildable! Just be careful if you are pale like me you dont go over board and end up looking like a walking satsuma.

Cheat a tan

So its summer and I look paler than casper. So my antidote to pale blues is St Moritz fake tan! It is instant but stays for as long as normal build able fake tans except you get the effects instantly with NO nasty smell! Great right? Be sure to be careful and wait for it to dry, nobody likes streaky tan.
 

Victoria secret haul

Okay so i marched into Victoria secret determined to look like a Rosie Huntington when I walked out with products that claim 'perfect body' and 'bronze body' in a tube! *booyah*

Alas i didnt look like a super model but smelt amazing and had a glow! Woo! 
Okay the bronzing lotion smells insane like apricots and does what it says creates a bronze shimmer on the skin, enhancing your tan! Massive yay! And the perfect body didnt create a toned bombshell but did extenuate my collar bones by adding a shimmery highlight
to them. So overall BIG WIN for smelling reem (sorry) and sparkly but not so big win for returning home as a super model. 

Liquid blush

CheapVsExpensive

Okay so i know that old saying 'you get what you paid for' but is that always the case with makeup? Hmm I dont think so. 

I recently purchased ELF cosmetic HD blush for 3.75 pounds. And i love it!
Yes I was a bit shocked at the highly pigmented bright formula but it means i only need to use a tiny bit! = a big yay as it last FOREVER and isnt expensive! It looks natural but word of warning only use
a TINY bit it is so pigmented and bright and you will end up looking like a clown if you use too much. So careful. 

When comparing this to bobbi browns multipurpose cheek tint i have to say i prefer the elf! Sorry! I am a huge fan of bobbi brown and am obsessed with their foundations, skin care, eye make up and powder blushers ( the whole shebang) but this tint is shimmery... good if you like shimmer but i would choose elf HD blush for more of a matte finish and its less expensive! But you know whatever floats your boat as they say. What do you think? Prefer shimmer? Or matte? 

Chocolate cake recipe

Bonjour lovelies! 

So it was my mums birthday yesterday, and i thought I would share with you my creation! And how I made it and what you will need! 

So lets get started chicas! 

Okay so to start you will need:

A whisk
A large mixing bowl
2 cake tins
Scales 
A couple of spoons! 
6 ounces of Flour
6 ounces of Butter
3 Eggs
6 ounces of sugar.
1 table spoon of coco power

Right lets begin! 

So weigh your sugar and butter and cream together with your whisk.

Measure flour and coca power add this slowly with the eggs to the creamed butter and sugar and continue to whisk until the mixture looks well mixed and fluffy. 

Pour the mixture into buttered cake tons and place in the oven at 180 c for 20-25 minutes- you will know if the cake is done by putting a knife through the middle and the knife coming put clean, if the cake isnt cooked there will mixture stuck to the knife! 

Cool the sponges 

Now whisk the cream and wash the raspberries. 

Now when the cake is cool add the cream to one side of a sponge and raspberries and place the other sponge on top to make a sandwich! And then add the cream to the top of the newly sandwich sponge! Decorate with raspberries and flowers made out of sugar paper! And Done!

Make sure you take care with the oven! 

Comment with your beautiful creations lovelies! Hope they are tasty! 

Xoxox love
