My week in pictures #6 instagram.

This week has been a really long one! But is has been a beautiful one, the sun has been shinning for most of the week even though some of the days we had rain and wind, but today is a beautiful day too. As everyone knows i have been doing another blog with my sister Stefi so that has kept me busy, i have also been reading! The most frustrating thing i have been doing this week is trying to get the green out of my hair without using any chemicals, this doesn't seem to be working so i'm going to have to dye it. Today i might play some Gears of War 3 or Borderlands 2, if not i will most probably nap or speak to Chris on Skype!

The most terrifying Alpaca game ever!

It's basically called alpaca evolution but the name for it on Apple app store is: アルパカにいさん. I only got it because everyone else had it and now i am addicted to playing it... basically you have to hit the normal alpacas down and then you suck them in or eat them or something, once you get a certain amount of experience your evolve, i will now show you how many times mine has evolved so far:

  It's pretty terrifying but i am obsessed with playing it! I can only play it if wifi and packet data off though otherwise it doesn't work.


Girissima bag arrived!

As you all know i won a give away not long ago for a Girissima bag i was so excited that i actually won it, it actually turned up today i thought it was my dress and got excited but as soon as i opened the package to see the bag i went to show my mum. It is the most beautiful bag and worth 136,00 €!!! The bag it's self it made of real leather and comes with a chain strap with a leather bit around the top, inside it has a compartment for my mobile phone and a key chain. They sent me a lovely letter with the bag with some discount codes and a lipstick pen, which is cute!

My last Glossybox

I decided that this month would be my last Glossybox, due to the fact i can't keep affording it and some times the boxes aren't all that good so i would rather just use up all the products i have as of now. This month is was Glossy boxes 2nd birthday so they sent out the same pink box but with some very funky orange shredded paper in. I was really excited for this box but i don't know i felt last months box was so much more better. So in my box i received // Awapuhi wild ginger shine spray // Collection 2000 fast stroke eyeliner (i buy this all the time, one of my favourite eyeliners) // Jelly pong pong fairy lashes mascara // Headline colours nail varnish in the shade fire water // Beautiful movements cosmetics prime & create mixing medium ( in the smallest sample sized pot ever) // Some really cute glossybox nail files (brilliant for your handbag) // I think i will write about what i think of the products in more detail another day.

My week in pictures (instagram) #5

I haven't actually done one of these in two weeks now? Something like that but I thought I would do one for this week seeing as my blog needs some cheering up after my depressing outburst on Friday. As everyone can tell I have had a pretty shitty week but I still went out and tried to enjoy myself. I love going out with my parents sometimes they really make me laugh and I think it's important to spend time with your parents and make new memories that you can keep for the rest of your life, so this week I was out mostly with them.

✿ ✿ 

1. Found my Bourjois bronzer that my sister gave me and I don't use so I am going to send it to the lovely Lucy // 2/3. I really wanted to wear my new green skirt the other day, I took one step out of the door and it was freezing so I decided to change into my new favourite jeans and my leopard print top. // 4. When I was out with my parents we went around the roundabout and I saw someone had put this "I love you" sign there, how romantic! // 5. I got my phone out so fast to take pictures of the biggest husky I had ever seen. //  6. I love that when I wear a jumper with a dress it just looks like I am wearing a skirt and jumper. // 7. This is one of my favourite necklaces from JiJi Kiki. // 8. I saw this hat at Griggs country store when I went to see the alpacas and I really want it. // 9. Penni's face speaks for itself haha.

Colgate Max Fresh with Cooling Crystals

I am one of those people who is always on the look out for a better toothpaste then the one i already have, even if it is a good one. My parents recently brought Colgate max fresh with cooling crystals, i wasn't sure about trying it because i normal use Colgate sensitive but i decided to give it a go anyways. The one i have comes in a squeezy tube and the price is around £2 i think my parents got it from Asda not sure, the toothpaste itself is blue with cooling crystals inside which look a little bit like tiny squares of paper inside the toothpaste. You can feel these crystals when you do brush your teeth, it feels a bit gritty in your mouth but  they dissolve really fast, it has a fresh mint taste which is meant to keep your breath smelling fresh. The toothpaste is a gel and i found when i squeezed it out it came out rather fast, it also comes in two flavours cool mint and clean mint, the one i have is cool mint.

My overall verdict of this toothpaste it yes it has a fresh taste and is a cool blue colour with crystals inside, It made my mouth feel fresh and clean and had a nice taste to it, i hate toothpastes that leave a nasty taste behind in my mouth. I would like to try the clean mint and see which one i prefer the most but i would most likely like the cool mint one. I like that the toothpaste isn't watery and has a thick texture to it, you don't need a lot on your tooth brush either as it spreads around your mouth/teeth pretty well when you brush. Also an interesting fact, the cooling crystals inside are sugar free, which i know for a lot of people/parents is a bonus. It does say it's meant to make your teeth whiter so we will see overtime if they do get whiter (i still use my pearl drops toothpaste for whitening). I recommend this tooth paste to anyone, seriously i am in love with it!

Some products from my first beauty box #1

Seeing as i haven't done a proper blog about the products i received in my first beauty box swap i have decided to do one about the products i have been using from the box the most so far. This doesn't mean i don't like the other stuff i received it just means i haven't got round to using everything just yet! Ok first up is the lipstick by Lakme shade enrich satins. I love the colour of this lipstick, i don't normally wear shades that are a browny kind of colour because they make me look washed out and dead, but this shade was a lovely rich colour that stayed on for 3 hours which i was pretty impressed with. I have never heard of this brand before and i am extremely pleased with it and i would love to try their other shades.

Next is Maybelline the hyper curl volume express, i have never heard of this mascara of even seen it anywhere until Renu sent me it, and as most people know i love love love trying out mascaras, in fact i took off my mascara i was wearing as soon as i got the box to try this one on. It's a pretty good mascara it doesn't clump on my eyelashes or flake off, it's very easy to wash off when i take all my make up off but the only thing is it never gave me "the hyper curl volum" it claims it does. But overall it's a mascara that i will carry on using because i like it.

The next product is Coloressences blusher, I'm really not sure which shade i have but it's a rich/darkish pink colour that is very pigmented. You don't need much of this colour because it's such a dark colour and lasts all day, the colour literally never faded on my cheeks. I love wearing it when i do my  make up natural because it makes me look fresh faced like the cold has made my cheeks a nice pinky colour.

I'm going to do these two eyeliners together, one is a liquid liner the other is a pencil, they are both blue and i love both of them just as much as each other. The liquid eyeliner is called Lakme fantasy shimmer line in shade glimmer blue, this liquiud eyeliner is beautiful and stayed on my eyes all day, it's easy to clean off as well same goes for the  NYX auto eye pencil in shade sapphire. The NYX eyeliner goes on smoothly and it didn't smudge throughout the day either. These are the kind of eyeliners i would repurchase, it makes a nice change to have a pretty coloured eyeliner rather than the black and white ones i have.

Alpaca Day!

Yesterday at a place called Griggs country store in St Austell, they had Alpaca day! I only discovered it yesterday when i was out with my parents, so today we decided to go check it out. First of all i thought it would be only a few alpacas but there was loads!! They were all being judged and put into different categories. One of them managed to escape whilst we were there it was quiet funny, but they got it safely back into the pen. I didn't know until today you can't just have one Alpaca you have to have 3 or 4 because they are heard animals. Once we were done looking at the Alpacas and taking pictures of them we went into Griggs store and as we walked in there was a cute kitty called Jess, The man who worked there said they think she is over 15 years old and she use to live up at an old farm house near the store, but when the store was built she would come and sleep inside and catch mice and she has been there ever since. Then i saw bunny rabbits, i literally fell in love and didn't want to leave! I saw so many cute fluffy animals i was in heaven, here are some pictures i took of them:
