Burberry Kisses*







Recently, i was lucky enough to receive two samples of Burberrys new lipsticks entitled 'Burberry Kisses' from Burberry. The shades i received are Nude beige (No'1) and Sepia (No'85). The lipsticks come in really cute sliver mirror type packaging. Whilst the packaging does look nice, i do find it gets very mucky very quickly as fingerprints are visible on them; the packaging is also very slippery so at first i did find it slipping out of my fingers whilst trying to apply it.

The lipstick itself is incredible amazing. The colours are so build able so you can have it as strong as you like it, making it that little bit more personal to you. It says on the lips for around 2 hours without being topped up, which if your going out for a meal is fantastic! It is very moisturising on my lips and  has a slight shine that ,unlike lip gloss, does not cause your hair to stick to your lips!

The shade nude is different to most nudes as it has a tiny amount of pink in it which ,i think, makes it nicer than most nude lipsticks. The shade sepia is my favourite out of the two as it is a really nice mahogany shade and a lot different to the ones i have seen in high street shops.

At £25 a pop, they are quite expensive but are defiantly worth it as they will last you a very very long time.

Whats your opinion on the new Burberry Kisses?

Happy Sundays.















Sundays are the day when all the shops shut, when most people slow down and just relax, a time to lie in bed until its time for Sunday lunch, Yorkshire puddings and gravy - i can hear my stomach rumbling already.
 Theres something great about being able to not worry where you have to be a day to be leisurely in the comfort of your own home, or go get a coffee with your friends, wash your car, go on an adventure with yourself , pick up your camera , do all the things you never have to or can be bothered to do in the week. For me Sundays are about good food, netflix, spotify , a lil' bit of photography and weather dependent penny boarding.

What are your Sundays all about?

The Playlist of my Life (so far).

mother and i obviously looking FANTASTIC at a festival ( Carfest) last year.
Whilst attempting to revise Macbeth for an English exam, I found myself once again attempting to create 'the perfect playlist'- or just procrastinating, which ever way you want to put it.

Whilst making the playlist on my beloved spotify, I saw myself once again adding all the songs from being little! This made me realise how important music is to my life, so here's a selection of songs that I first heard when I was 6 up to Songs I heard this week.

1- 'Be our guest' from Beauty and the Beast. This song has and will always be my favourite ever Disney song. I can't listen to it without smiling, the song brings all of the magic from Disney films to life and it just reminds me of all my adventures with my family in Disney land. 

2- 'I need a house' by same difference. same difference Were my life, I even got tickets to their concert when I was around 8 for my birthday present , but they unfortunately cancelled the tour. :(

3- 'We're all in this together' from High school musical. High school musical was the frozen of my generation. Once a wildcat, always a wildcat. I mean whats not to love, Zac Efron AND Vanessa Hudgens.
See ^ wildcat.

4- (Another Disney channel film song I know ) 'We rock' from Camp Rock. After Camp Rock i seemingly decided I was going to marry nick Jonas when I was older. Still find him insanely attractive if I'm being honest.

5- 'Wake me up when September ends' by Green day. The album this song is from 'American idiot' was played on repeat by me and my brother for around 2 years straight and we still listen to It in the car whenever Dan is home from uni. 

6- 'She's so lovely' by Scouting for girls. The amount of times I have seen this song live is insane. I just love scouting for girls and They bring back so many memories from summer at a festival where me and my family saw them live.

7-  ' Five colours' by Mcfly. Mcfly, I mean who hasn't ever loved Mcfly.

8- 'Wherever you are ' by 5 seconds of Summer. I've loved this band for over 3 years and I cannot listen to this song without crying because it's just so beautiful, and I'm so proud of everything they have achieved

9- 'Old man' by Billy Lockett . I don't know why I just really love this song, if you haven't heard of billy locket you need to go have a listen to him on spotify because he is absolutely fantastic.

10- '7 things' by Miley Cyrus. Miley was my icon from around the age of 7 till the age of 12 and I still love her music to this day.

2015 so far...

Hey its been a while.
So Since I've been gone *sings Kelly Clarkson*, a few things in my life have changed quite a bit.
I picked my GCSE's,  which sounds simple to most , but me being me I insisted on checking the university courses I want to take in 4 years time to decided whether I needed to take specific GCSE's in order to do so. Anyway after much deliberation, I have decided to take; Core Science , English language & literature , Maths, Textiles , Preforming arts , History and Religious studies.

Also ,I got glasses, after taking a eye sight test I was told they were needed and I'm so glad I did - My world is in HD.  However, Do you know how hard it is to choose a glasses frame ? It took me about 4 hours in total and two trips to the opticians! In the end I went for a tortoise shell RayBan shaped frame, and I must admit I sort of love them.

I also got really into photography, I just love the fact and idea that with one click you can capture a moment and make it look like the most beautiful thing in the world. Its the way how through one zoom ( on a fairly good camera) you can see all the details we cannot usually see on things we usually take for an ordinary thing.
some pretty flowers found in the lake district on a rainy english day. 

Oh, and i took up Penny Boarding. in winter , i know its crazy. seeing as actual penny boards are like £100 i decided to buy a cheaper alternative for £14 on eBay so i could learn on it and decide if i liked it before splashing the cash and going for a real one. I bought it here, its white with black wheels, of course being the 'cool' Tumblr girl wannabe i am , i drew the yin and yang symbol - in which i try to live my life by the whole 'Good vibes , peace and happiness' thing I've mentioned in my last few posts, also the fact it looks pretty awesome if i'm being honest. I really do love my penny board and don't be afraid to try it if your worried, i've not yet *touches wood* hurt my self on it. Don't be afrad to try new things and face some fears every once in a while. apart from spiders , stay away from them. creepy as.

Moral of the post - Hi I'm back and wanted to post.
Have you started any new hobbies recently/ this year ? let me know in the comments below as id be really interested to find out!

Lots of love,
Jenny
