Lancome Drama Mascara- Review ❤❤


Hello guys, so today I wanted to finally share my review with you on one of my favourite mascaras-
Lancome Drama ❤

If you want a mascara that gives you length and volume read on.......


I have used many different mascaras over the course of time ranging from Bourjouis, Rimmel, Maybelline, YSL & the classic Lancome Hypnose... however I always seem to bounce back to my favourite, being Drama.

Retail Price- On average around £22.50

Yes it's not the cheapest product, however it definitely lives up to expectations. I think you can easily spend £20 testing out a couple of high St brand mascaras, which basically equivalates to the price of the Drama. (Makes me feel better when I think about it this way)


Application Process-

The product has a very thick and dense brush, which is great if you want an intense/strong black look on your lashes, if you prefer your lashes to look more subtle you will only need to apply one layer.
It can be slightly tricky to apply the mascara to your small lashes at first as the brush is so wide, however once you get the hang of this Mascara, its quite easy to work with.





As you can see the brush holds a lot of product, It can make yours lashes clump together depending how much product you apply, as it is so thick... but if you have one of those standard lash/brow brushes, this can easily be fixed.  

After picture ❤
The mascara in this photo has already been worn for around 6/7 hours 


I have only applied a few layers of mascara in this photo. So obviously if you want a more dramatic look- just apply more product :)


Good things about Drama-

It makes the lashes thick and long
Thick/ super dense brush
Intense Black colour
Lasts on the lashes for a long time
The overall product lasts well as you don't need to apply as much product
No Panda eyes after applying the Mascara


Not so good things-

It's not waterproof
A little bit pricey
It can be slightly tricky to work with if your not great with applying mascaras



I hope you enjoyed reading my review on my Fav Mascara!

Have any of you guys tried it out before or looking to try it?.. let me know

Ombre Hair Before & After ❤

Ombre Hair again. So after having my hair extensions taken out, I really wanted to try a new look. I have had ombre hair twice before, but where I did it myself I ended up killing my hair soo bad & having to get a lot of it cut off.. which was a sad moment!

I would really recommend anybody who has naturally or dyed dark hair to get your ombre locks done professionally at the salon. I used to try and avoid the hair dressers as much as possible as it can be much more pricer than a packet of hair dye from boots. However speaking from previous experience of doing it myself, its really not worth it & if you love your long hair don't risk doing yourself..as more than likely it will end up really damaged and not the desired colour. 

I went to the salon & with a 20% off colour deal it made it really worth the money. If you asking to get an Ombre style at the salon.. it's basically just a full head of colour tint (a lot cheaper than highlights). My hair dresser did a strand test and used three different bleach colours, I then came back 45 minutes later to see the results. I'm really glad she did this, as it gave me a much better idea of how the colour would look and if there would be any damage on my hair. 


Hair BEFORE ❤  Dark Brown- Has been previously dyed a lot.






Hair AFTER ❤





The best thing as well was having my hair washed/ conditioned after with all the Moroccan shampoos/conditioners... I really felt like my hair was getting a right old needed pamper :) :) !!

I am really happy with the end result. & no damage at all really.. My hair actually feels in really good condition.- It was definitely worth paying the extra money!

Eventually I will add to my ombre to get a few more honey/caramel colours running through it.. but as a first stage- I love my new hair.

I went to Graham Webb Hair Salon & I couldn't recommend them enough!!

Happy Valentines day Boys & Girls ❤ LIP Shade edit

Happy Friday & Valentines day. I know theres a lot of hype on this day and expectation to do something, but whether your staying in or going out with your guy, having a girls one (like my lovely mother) or just chilling in by yourself.. I hope you all have a nice evening. 

I work at Waitrose part time and I have to say the cutest thing is seeing all the men come in and trying to decide which bunch of bouquets flowers to buy for there ladies. It's so damn cuteeeee!!! I hope my boy has taken note. 

Anyway I have decided to just stay in. I have purchased a lovely 'Dine in for 2 three course meal from Waitrose', which I would really recommend if your stuck....you get lots of good quality choices for your pennies + Wine + Choccies, perfect!!

If you are going out, I would recommend you to get your hands on this Lip colour which is my FAVVV at the moment, I may just wear it while I'm in tonight too... ❤

MAC- Diva & Rebal lip shade & Night moth Lip liner.

I love dark gothic style lips at the moment and it really makes a simple outfit quite edgy and sexy. 





What do you guys think? ❤

TOPSHOP HAUL ❤


So yesterday I thought I was meant to be at boring uni... that was until my lovely friends told me that we had monday off. What am I like. I never check my uni emails & I don't even know my timetable.... I'm useless!!! Anyway Lucky they told me, as now I could spend my day doing something much more productive...
Shopping :)

Before I went shopping I decided to go and visit the Isabella Blow exhibition at Somerset House in London, I thought seeing as I didn't have uni.. I wanted to keep busy rather than moping about at home. I will do a post about the exhibition later 


So I never really go to the main Topshop in Oxford St as it is always so crazy busy and tbh I don't often have the time to go up to Central London, while I'm at uni in Rochester. Anyway seeing as I was around the Embankment area, I thought I would make the most out of my travel card and venture over to Oxford St. Luckily the shops were not to busy, which made looking around Topshop much more bearable. The thing I love about the London flagship store is that they have EVERYTHING. I always find lots of lovely clothes in there and unique brands that I have never come across before. The bad thing is, is that I want it all!!! even though I probably don't need it. Anyway I ended up with 5 lovely garments in my changing room, which was not bad going at all. 




Here is what I couldn't resist leaving behind and decided to take home with me today ❤ 



Three things..


 NUMBER 1- TOPSHOP MINT FLUFFY CROP KNIT- £15

What it looks like on ❤ 





NUMBER 2- TOPSHOP JONI GINGHAM PRINT SKINNY JEANS- £38



Love high waisted jeans and these are so skinny! No annoying bag on the ankle or knee √





NUMBER 3- TOPSHOP NEW YORK ANGELS JUMPER- £35



Such a cute Label. The little finishing touches make a massive difference ❤

What it looks like on. It's so comfy and slightly oversized. Love at first site with this 
+ it comes in other designs to ❤ 




Enjoy the rest of your day guys & spending money in the shops is a good thing.. we are helping the economy ahaaa ❤
lots of love

Interning at Matthew Williamson in Paris ❤

Today I thought I would share with you my experience of being an Intern at the Paris PRE FALL 14 show room for Matthew Williamson. I only arrived home yesterday evening, but overall I had a lovely time and an interesting experience. If any of you already follow me on instagram you will see some of my cheeky updates throughout the week.




A bit about the English designer Matthew Williamson-
Matthew Williamson was born in Manchester in 1971. He grew up and studied there until the age of 17, when he was offered a place on the fashion degree course at Central Saint Martins College, London. Matthew graduated from Central Saint Martins with a BA in Fashion Design and Printed Textiles in 1994.Matthew Williamson Ltd was founded in February 1997 by Matthew and CEO, Joseph Velosa. Matthew showed his acclaimed debut collection, 'Electric Angels', at London Fashion Week in September 1997. Matthew’s debut show of only fourteen vibrantly coloured looks worn by models including Kate Moss, Helena Christensen and Jade Jagger made a huge impact on the fashion world, showcasing a taster of what was to come in the years to follow. 


His Signature style- 
His collections are known for print, embellishment, attention to detail and kaleidoscopic colour. The designs encapsulate a bohemian spirit and a laid back sense of glamour.


His Trademark-
An evening dress in his signature style – combining colour, print and embellishment!




Getting my suitcase ready ❤ 


My Arrival to Paris.......

By Eurostar it takes only 2 hours to get to Paris which is pretty amazing. My journey there was really straight forward from Ebbsfleet Station straight to Gard du Nord and then a fairly quick tube to Bastille (where I was staying). 


Yummy meal that was served on the Euro star ❤


My hotel was extremely central (1 minute walk) to the Show room, which was perfect for me as I really couldn't be dealing with a long journey and walk everyday, especially in an area I was not familiar with. However in terms of decor and style this hotel has to be one of the worst I have stayed in. I had to walk up 4 lots of windy stairs with my awfully heavy suitcase to get to my room, which left me a little speechless. The floor was uneven, there was a massive crack on the ceiling, dated wallpaper and a musky smell. The only good thing was that I had a decent view and a big window to open which made the room a tad better. I decided I didn't want to hang around.... so I left my luggage and went out to explore a bit of Paris before the Internship begun.


The view from my room- quite nice ❤

Bastille Tower ❤



Beautiful cars  ❤







I must admit I felt a little lonely by myself on the first day.. no one to really talk to and explore with. I did shed a few tears on the first night thinking what have I done. 

The Show room- Day 1....

So my first day of work consisted of unpacking endless amounts of beautiful clothes to be hung on rails, unpacking plates and glasses for the kitchen area, unpacking tables and chairs and overall organising the show room so it was ready for the buyers appointments the next day. It is crazy how you can transform an empty studio room into a beautiful space in a matter of hours. This wasn't the most exciting day and I felt the cattiness of one member of the team who was nit picking at everything and almost trying to make me feel stupid at some points. I left feeling not too happy especially as I was volunteering my own time to help. I was hoping day 2 would be better.






The Pretty Show room full of amazing clothes ❤










Day 2...

So me and 2 other interns were all designated a role to either dress the models, be a runner or greet the buyers and organise drinks etc. I was on greeting, fairly straight forward and then I assisted the other interns if they needed help. Its crazy how many clients you get from all over the world who come to Paris. We had guests from Dubai, Quatar, Hong Kong, Germany, Sweden, Vietnam etc all ready to view and purchase bits of the collection. Most of the clients are lovely, however some look at you like your shit. It didn't bother me as most of them had vile clothes and a face full of filler. I loved the other two interns though, they definitely made the day go quicker. If it wasn't for them and the two lovely models, Paris would have been a lot duller.


Gorgeous girls ❤ Alex & Elena

Preparation in the kitchen area ❤ ❤ 



Day 3,4,5.....

Again these days consisted of the same tasks. However throughout the week it became a lot busier. Dressing the models was fun but was a tad confusing, as you had to almost guess what outfits went together and when you didn't have much time it became a tad stressful. There was a couple of occasions where me and the interns sent the model out to the client wearing a mismatched outfit. But tbh it wasn't the end of the world, just a tad awkward haaa! The models were so lovely and when we were all sitting behind the scenes we would have a little bitch about the nasty clients and even do some squats, which was funny....Oh and eat all the food.


Are little area where we would dress the girls ready for the clients ❤

Lunch everyday from Paul ❤

The last day...

Again busy with clients most of the day, until late afternoon came where we had to pack up the whole show room ready to leave to go back to London. The only thing I will miss from this experience is the fun I had with the interns and the models. 

Paris sounds like it would be a fabulous experience, however it can be quite dull when your interning and you don't know anyone. Luckily the other interns were lovely.. however my experience could have been different otherwise. Cost wise it wasn't cheap as I had to pay for my accommodation which was shit. But for general experience it was brilliant and has prepared me even more for what comes next. Throughout the week I warmed to the staff a lot more and they even invited me for dinner on the last night which I really appreciated. I hope to keep in contact with the company as It would be great to work in London with them and it's much more convenient for me. I don't think I will be going to Paris any time soon again, however it has been an experience I will never forget!

P.s I will miss waking up to the lovely clothes. So pretty!!! & the amazing coffee machine.
