Kiko By Milano Beauty Haul.

To those of you who are not aware of this make up brand called Kiko By Milano. They are a beauty company that sells make up from foundation, primer, blushers, lipstick, lip gloss, eye-shadow and more, at a very reasonable price. 

Velvet Blush Stick - £7.90 / Ultra Glossy stylo - £4.90 / Smart lipstick - £3.90

What I like best about there lipstick is when you apply it on your lips it blends perfectly, that last long once applied and even have that sweet smell towards it. They have different range of texture for you to select from even with colour.

The ones that I have purchased is the Smart lipstick and the Ultra glossy in rich red and two shades of pink colours. I have chosen particularly because the smart lipstick keep your lips nourished and fresh, also leaving it glossy free and the perfect matte touch, which is what I love. With some lipstick I sometimes have to add like a lip balm so that my lips wont hydrate and peel. But, with the lipstick mixture that they hold I just don't feel that I need to.

Moving on to the Ultra Glossy lipstick. I am not a fan of lip gloss as they just appear sticky and when the wind blows my hair just stick on my lips and it's just annoying, if your one of them people who is fed up of those sort of things happening to you then maybe you need to invest on purchasing this in particular as you will be left with shiny, irresistible lips, that is sticky free, and even includes SPF 15 to protect your lips, way better than the average lip gloss and lipstick you may purchase at beauty stores and this certainly worth the price. Result! 

This velvet blush stick is to die for! When I firstly saw this gorgeous coral colour I just couldn't resist. I wasn't too sure at first because I have always used a powdered blusher and use my blusher brush, but if you are going for that natural sun kissed glow. Then you should definitely keep your eyes open and look out for this. The effect is perfect because you simply roll the stick on your cheek bone structure, rub it gently in a circular motion using two fingers then you are good to go.

The Beauty Procrastination Tag

Afternoon my lovelies!

Sorry I have not been blogging for a while as I am slightly poorly :( and been very busy with coursework and so on. If I have not replied to you etc this is the reason. 

Any ways I have been tagged by the beautiful Isabel who has an amazing blog called IisforIZ. If you are looking for tips and advice then you should totally check her out.

I love reading tag posts like this, and hopefully you enjoy reading mine. There are 18 questions altogether and will tag 6 people that I have chosen if you want to join in the fun. The questions that you would have to answer will be the same.

1. Are you a very open or private person?
When it comes to silly or out of the ordinary things  I really don't care who I tell, but when it involves major or specific topic they would have to be a close friend of mine, a really close friend. I choose not to have bestfriends because I think the whole idea of it is just sad. Don't mean to offend people who do, this is just my opinion don't cry about it. But like I'm not that type of person to just tell my whole life story to, if that was me and someone done that, I would instantly think to myself I don't think I care. 

 2. If money was no object, where would you move to?
I would move somewhere exotic where I can wake up all day feeling like I'm in paradise, sipping on my mango drink, tanning it out, not a care in the world. 

3. Who was the last person that made you cry?
When my boyfriend accidentally dropped my I phone and there was a tiny scratch, I cried and thought it was the end of the world!

4. Is there a song that can bring you to tears easily?
Not that I can think of.

5. Do you believe in soul mates?
I'm not to sure about that, I guess I would have to see it for myself then maybe I would believe when the time comes.

6. What age do people usually mistake you for?
Most people surprisingly think that I am a lot older than what I should be and I get mistaken of being in my 20's. I don't know if that's a good thing or what, but I personally think I look a lot younger as I have a baby face, and still get I.D. The only time I don't is when I get a scratch cards but I guess that's a plus.

7. What are you wearing?
Right now I'm wearing my comfy pink leopard pyjamas and fluffy socks.

8. Have you ever been in love?

9. How tall are you?
I think I'm like 5ft 3 or 4. I have my days when I am really tall or either short, weird I say.

10. How much do you weigh?
I have no clue to be honest. But I'm either a size 6 or 8 if that helps.

11. Do you have any piercings? 
Back in my days I used to be addicted to piercing and have 8 piercings on my ears. I never wanted my belly done because I got major freaked out when I saw one infected. I had my tongue done, and cried I think that was the most painful piercing I have ever experienced in my life, but when I fell asleep once it fell out and I swallowed it. By the time I could of replaced it with a new tongue bar it closed. So that was basically a waste of my money. I would never get it re pierced and actually glad that it closed up and so on, because I'm not personally into that any more.

12.Favourite TV show?
I don't really have time watching TV shows, but I sometime catch up watching 2 broke girls.

13. Quality you look for in a partner?
Someone who I can speak to and act like they are one of my close friends,  also caring, can make me laugh when I'm down in the dumps, well mannered, respectful, and can act as weird as I am.

14. Favourite quotation?
"Chicken nuggets is like my family" haha!. This never fails to make laugh.

15. Do you have any fear?
I fear of rats and mice. They are vile deceased creatures Ew! No clue why god invented them.

16. What is your daily beauty routine?
Wash my face with soap and water, I hate using wet wipes on my face as I don't feel fresh wiping of my make up using them. Apply primer, then foundation,  powder, mascara, bronzer, blusher, and either wear a lip balm or lip stick and then style my hair.

17. When going out somewhere how long does it take you to get ready?
It takes me like 30 minutes or so, I'd rather get my extra sleep and chill out.

18. How organised is your make up and nail collection.
Very organised I keep them all in cute vintage boxes stored nice and tidy or line them up on show always kept on the same spot unless I am taking it out with me then I put it my cute make-up bag. Nothing can go worst than not being able to find things, I have zero lack of patience and for me to be looking around hunting on where I have last placed it would really grind my gears.

That's the end of it. If you have survived reading all this, congratulations!

The next tag will go to my gorgeous bloggers:

Oooh strawberry.

Body Shop: Strawberry body butter, and lip balm.
Happy Fridays beauty bloggers,

I popped into body shop and thought I would try a different scent to use as I always use the coconut body butter. And I fell in love with this sweet strawberry smell, that really excites me for summer.

 I prefer using Body Shop products because they do not test on animals, and their lotion always leave my skin soft and irresistible. Before I used to use Vaseline cocoa butter and Aloe Vera but it did not seem to adapt well on my skin.

Body Shop gives you a discount stamp every time you purchase an item or have bought and exceeded to a certain amount they will offer you a free give away to take home with you. Now for me as a customer. I give them a massive thumbs up.

There lip balms comes along different scent for you to choose. I particularly like this lip balm because it gives my lips a natural red healthy tint look and being shiny, but not too glossy, and smells divine. This is also similar to the orange Baby Lips which is a Maybeline brand and the price is almost exact.

What I like best about these products is that it affordable, good brand, and reach my satisfaction.

Splash of colour.

Hello everyone, what a lovely Sunday today has been, with the gorgeous sun shine shining, oh yes! This certainly exites me for the summer. On Friday I went for a night out with my girls as it was one of my friend's 19th birthday. Was such a great night. I will now talk to you about my outfit of the night, and how I have decided to style out my outfits.

I have got this lovely two piece dress from Missguided, when I first saw it online I did not hesitate whatsoever on adding it straight to my basket.

On the information it said that models wear a size 8 on the size guide but because I am ever so tiny I thought I would get a size 6 for the top and skirt. Luckily with my instinct, I made the right choice.

 The material and fabric is in good quality so you wont have to worry of flimsy materials. I was stunned by the prices too as these were both £10 each which I found very reasonable.

I didn't feel the need to wear any accessory with it because if I have worn a necklace or earrings I feel that it won't track much attention and because the two piece outfit is already very bold and colourful it already stood out in my point of view.

For a bag to carry all my stuff around I worn this gorgeous Henry Holland lips bag in metallic. There designs come in all sorts of pastel colours, but I wasn't much of a fan of the pastels range as I did not think it looked as nice compared to the metallic.

Now for my shoes, I decided to wear these high heals with cut outs. They really catch my eye because they look different and unbelievably comfortable.

Round the world experts competition.

Hello bloggers, So twitter has informed me of a give away by the Bloggers Lounge to win a kindle fire. I'm basically going to guide you on places that I have travelled to.

I have visited Australia for a whole month travelling different city's and exploring it's culture. The city that I have travelled to was Cairns, Brisbane, Darwin and Sydney.

 My summer holiday was complete. I have cuddled a koala, fed and touched an alligator, also being up close to a kangaroo. Visiting their encounters and habitats. Also going along on tour guide being an absolute tourist, seeing the famous Sydney Oprah House and the famous Bondi Beach. Blue Mountains, Steve Irwin Museum, Swam the Great Barrier Reef, and scuba dived. Even hanged out with the Aborigines, went wale watching, sand boarding and more. Australia is like a country that features everything from desserts, to city, beaches, cold and hot weather to even farms into one. Here are images of my holiday from last year.

This holiday was like an opportunity of a lifetime to escape for a whole month, I am very fortunate to have visited so many places and have been out travelling, being an adrenaline junkie, trying out new things, going way overboard my limits. Australia is the place to be.

March Must-haves.

1. Hollister Crystal Cove (body mist) / 2. H&M clothing brush /
 3. Loreal Elvive hair protection / 4. Crabtree & Evelyn hand therapy.

March is now finally here! Now to me, this year is certainly flying by. Here is a list of four items that you need to get your hands on and a must have this month.

1. Hollister body mist, I just love the smell of Hollister every time I walk into the shop. The atmosphere of the place is just so quirky with the whole darkness scenery and amazing chandelier decorations and style. But what really lures me in the shop is that distinctive smell so powerful that you just cant resist. So I certainly had to grab one of these miraculous bottle and take it home with me. 

2. H&M clothing brush, this handy brush has a sticky roll on paper that removes all the bobbles away from your clothes, and restore your clothes feeling soft and looking new. To me when I wear jumpers and you can see them ugly bobbles on building up. Fear no more, because this is the solution. You can buy a pack of 4 from shops such a Poundland which you can already tell it is a pound for a pack of 4. But I decided to go to H&M and get this one because the brush was pink. 

3. Loreal Elvive hair protection, this goes out to everyone who use hair straighteners and curlers. I used to be a victim of being to lazy and not using hair protection spray when I use hot products on my hair. I advice you start using heat protection from my experience. This certain heat protection of course leaves my hair silky smooth and frizz free, also when I sleep at night my hair appears to be flick free and still straight like I have just straightened it. Now because my hair is super curly this is a massive thumbs up towards this product.

4. Crabtree and Evelyn have a selection of hand lotion but my favourite is the Citron. I like this particularly because it smells fresh, leaving your hand moist and prevents your hands from dryness. With some hand lotion I specifically don't like to use it because the feel is either to oily on my hands and leaves my hand sweating away. But this in particular is the one to look out for, worth the price that I have paid and last extra long.

That's all for now my lovelies, hope you have had an epic pancake day yesterday!

Leave a comment on what you think about these products, would love to know your opinions.
