Why I blog
Ten blogs I’m addicted to
. Her and Joe are also too cute. Oh and I love her tattoos.
Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind
The best cake recipes, like, ever! Seriously. If you're ever having a naughty day, pop down and take a look at their baked goods and I'm sure you'll find something to bake that will satisfy your craving.
Tuula AND Gary Pepper
She reminds me of Tanya Burr who I also love to pieces. Her posts are always well informed with plenty of lovely pictures which I spend a fair amount of time looking at instead of reading the actual post... Ooops. Sorry!
She has some pretty cool lifestyle post. I actually read the writing on her blog and not just look at the photos!
I'm sorry if you were hoping this was going to be a Halloween post! Which blogs are you addicted to?

I found a few treasures in my local primarni! I bought a few basic shirts, featuring a beautiful gothic-esque floral pattern and an antique style floral pattern. Floral in fall... GROUNDBREAKING! Ugh now I want to watch the devil wears prada. My jumper is also super cute! Anyways, this post isn't very long because the video speaks for itself.. So watch it guys and girls!

As I'm sure by now you all now, blogger Zoella has released a beauty range called Zoella Beauty and I was super lucky to be gifted a couple of things from the range from a friend a couple of weeks ago (Thank You!). So here are my thoughts and honest opinions of the products!
Zoella Eyes Beauty Bag
Zoella Soak Opera - Bath Soak/Shower Cream 490ml
Zoella Blissful Mistful 45mlWhat I Think: I adore the name Blissful Mistful, it's just so cute! The scent is also lovely, if you were a fan of the Britney Spears Fantasy perfume, then this one's for you! It's super sweet and girly with a slight musky note. The packaging is lovely and looks like a dainty version of a luxury brand perfume, you can see there was a Topshop influence with the polka-dots and scrawled hand writing, but I really like that. In scent and concept it is quite similar to the Hollister Body Mist, I prefer the scents to the Hollister one's just because they have more sweet scents available but if you like a less sickly sweet smell, this one's for you. It's also a little pricey for how small it is, in comparison to the well established Hollister one's, as you only get 45ml of product in Zoella's Blissful Mistful, but the packaging is so much nicer and looks so much prettier in your room as it is glass and metal instead of plastic, (It's taking pride of place next to my Miss Dior, in my little perfume collection, see below) so I'm assuming that's where the money is going. It's a shame that like all body mists, the smell doesn't last long, but all in all, the smell is amazing and it's so cute and pretty that I don't mind it doesn't last long as I can carry it in my bag to top it up and it's pretty cheap to replace when I run out.
What did you think of the range? Comment down below! Don't forget to follow my blog for weekly posts!

Before I write anything about the product, I wanted you to know that I wasn't paid to review this product and these opinions given are my own. If you disagree with my views then that is fine and if you agree with me then that is fine too. I just wanted to make this as honest of a review as possible to give you a fair opinion and to help you make up your own mind of the product. I have also included photos so that as well as my review, you can see the results for yourself and decide whether or not you like it.
Cost: £23 for the mascara or £69 for the kit.
How it works: Unlike a regular mascara, Younique 3D Fiber Lash comes with two mascaras: A fiber one and a transplanting gel. I don't know the science behind it but basically, the natural fibers work by sticking to the transplanting gel, making your lashes appear thicker and fuller.
My Vlog including a Demo and Review
I haven't digitally manipulated any of these images to make my eyes look better or enhance my lashes.

This is both my Vlog and Blog post on my red hair dye review by Schwarzkopf. CLICK BELOW to watch my review and then carry on reading for extra information and before/after photos. Enjoy!
I bought this dye for a fun and quick solution to dying my hair only for a few weeks for fall/Halloween. Inside the box was the hair dye, instructions, conditioner and gloves.
I stated on my video that it lasts 14 washes but I re-read the box and it actually says 8, but if you have bleached your hair it will last longer. Also, this is only 'level 1' the have levels 2 and 3 which last longer, 3 being a permanent dye but I think this time spam was perfect as it doesn't last so long that I'll get sick of it
The instruction are super easy to understand and to follow. It suggests leaving the dye in for 20-30 minutes. I left mine in for 30 so that it would be more vibrant and because my hair is quite a dark brown so I wanted to make sure it would pick up the red.
I'm really impressed with this product overall and would definitely recommend it. The only thing I would have done differently if I dye my hair again using this product is I'd buy two boxes to cover my hair better.
It was so easy to use and only set my back around £6 but I know you can find it for less.
Here are some shots I took of me with my new hair colour, don't be disappointed if you don't think it looks very red because I can assure you it looks so much brighter and much more vibrant in person, especially in the sun, it's just a very hard colour to pick up in photographs.
