Review: Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner

Hey Guys,

Today I am back to share with you my thoughts on the Benefit push up liner.

This has been around for a while now and I think every one in the bloggershpere has reviewed this but I picked this up a couple of weeks ago and thought I would share my opinions as well. 
This is a bit strange at first as you expect it to be a liquid liner but it is a gel formula which makes it a lot easier to control (by that I mean not make mistakes).  You twist the bottom to push the product up through the tip at the top.The actual tip is flexible but still quite thin which also helps with getting a nice line. 

I did struggle with this at first as I tended to over twist and then to much product would come out and then it would just drop off the end. It also took me a while to get used to holding the product. I don't know what it is about it, I don't know if it's because the actual pen is thicker than I'm used to or if the tip forces you to hold it a certain way but it took me ages to feel comfortable using it. 

Now I have got to grips with it I am reasonably happy with it and will use it until it runs out or drys out but in all honestly I wasn't blown away and I do think it was perhaps slightly over hyped? I mean there is nothing wrong with it as such it is an okay eyeliner, there is just nothing amazing about it. 

Let me know your opinions on this, or if you have any tips on how I could use it better.

Getting Organised For 2015

Hey Guys, 

Today I am going to share with you how I plan on staying organised for 2015.

This year, more than ever, I feel very inspired about my blog. I have some very exciting ideas for posts that I haven't tried  before that I can't wait to share with you. So, because of this I decided that I was going to have get my self organised.

I like to carry both a diary and a note book. I picked up my little diary from Clinton Cards and the notebook is one I picked up from Paperchase last year. 

I personally find that I like to write ideas down as soon as they come to me. This is so it clears the space in my head and means I'm not likely to forget that totally awesome idea. So I use my notebook to write down titles of blog posts that I think of or products that I would like to try. 

The other thing that I really like to use to organise not just my blog but my whole life really is my diary. In my diary I write everything down; what I'm working, what Stu is working, birthdays, days that I am going to write blog posts and days that I am going to post. I honestly think I would be lost without my diary and totally recommend that if you are someone that struggles with keeping yourself organised that you should get one of these. 

The final thing that I have started using a lot more is my phone. I hear a lot of bloggers using their the phones to make notes and stuff and its just not something I have have ever done before. There is any particular reason for it I just haven't, however because I am a lot busier now sometime my phone is a lot handier than my notebook so I can jot down ideas on the note pad on their or use the calendar and Stu quite often sends me invitations and things through the calendars as well to make sure I don't forget anything. 

So there you go, this is how I plan to keep my self organised and keep my blog running and some sort of schedule.Without making any promises I think that my posting days will probably be a Wednesday and a Sunday and one other day during the week if I can. 

Let me know your top tips for keeping organised as I'm sure I could use some.

Jo Malone: Tuberose Angeleica Cologne

Hey Guys,

Today I am going to share with you my thoughts on my new favourite scent. 

I was a very lucky girl and actually received this for Christmas from Stu. I had been lusting after this back since I went to Leeds last summer with me friend so was super happy when I unwrapped that beautiful cream box with the red ribbon on. 

Now I am totally rubbish at describing scents so what I will do is insert what the website says; 

The queen of white florals. Sensual. Touched with the green spiciness of angelica. Sumptuous on the warmth of amberwood. Intoxicating and desirable.

The way I would describe it would be very sweet and floraly but not sickly and still quite woody and heavy, it just smells very grown up and womanly. If you are any where near a Jo Malone counter or store I would recommend giving this a smell because it is now definitely my new favourite smell! 

I mean this bad boy is pricey and does come in at £1oo for 100ml which works out at a £1 a spray! Wow that's pricey! That means I will only be wearing it on special occasions!

Let me know what your favourite scent is? Or if you have a favourite from Jo Malone.
