SFX Makeup

While watching some random YouTube videos a couple of weeks ago, it recommended a YouTuber called Cherry Wallis. If you’ve not heard of her before, I’d definitely recommend checking her out.  She not only has a lot of Harry Potter related videos, but loads of SFX makeup videos which I was absolutely enthralled by.  It looked really fun, so I decided I wanted to try some of the looks for myself.  Unfortunately I didn’t own any SFX stuff at all, so I bought a few things from Treasure House of Makeup.

I’ve also been admiring Hayley’s (TeaPartyBeauty) Instagram feed because her Halloween SFX makeup is just fab!!

*disclaimer* If you don’t like seeing bruises and scars, this post probably isn’t for you ♥

NUTRIBULLET Smoothie Recipes*

To be honest, when I got a NUTRIBULLET*, I thought I’d make a couple of smoothies and it would go in the cupboard to die.  You know, like the rest of the crazy fads we all own; the toastie maker which is great till you have to clean it, the random popcorn maker you got one Christmas because you’re “difficult to buy for” and the good old cafetiere that no one has time for.  Because hello kettle!

I didn’t expect that for the past month, J and I would actually be using it every day!

Pinkberry Frozen Yoghurt*

When I went to the US in 2011, Pinkberry* was everywhere. So it was disappointing that the UK didn’t have any. Until now. They now have a UK flagship store in Islington, London and I went up to check them out on their opening day.

*side story* Before I even got there, I had a bit of a catastrophe. I was all for wearing my jeans until I stepped outside two hours before heading to the train station to find that it was boiling hot outside. I own the total of two pairs of shorts; one are massive and look hideous and the other are a lil bit too tight (they’re a size 8 and it turns out I am not.) So I hot-footed to Next, tried on ALL the shorts and picked up a pair I really liked. And two tops. I really like them so an OOTD might appear soon. When it’s stopped raining. Thanks England, you da best! Anyway…
