Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh | Beauty

daisy eau so fresh daisy eau so fresh daisy eau so fresh

I am so fussy when it comes to scents, I’m either a fan of everything girly so I smell like a walking, talking vanilla pod or flower or I want to walk past someone and all they smell is a strong musky smell and think that a really nice smelling guy just walked past them. Well maybe not that bad, a musky scent with a hint of floral lets say.

One of my all time favourite perfumes for years now has to be the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh £65, I’ve been a firm lover of this for probably around 5 years now and I know it’s going to be my go to scent years in the future. I’m a massive fan of all of the Marc Jacob scents but the reason this one is my favourite is because of the fruity, sweet, floral scent it has. It really is a girly scent.

Something that I can say about Daisy Eau So Fresh is that I am in love with the bottle, I feel like this perfume could be the worst smelling thing in the world but I would still love it because of the bottle itself. With the white, yellow and pale pink flowers on the cap and the pale pink bottle it really is beautiful and perfect for Spring.

I would say that this scent is perfect for Spring and Summer but as I said before to me it is an all year round scent. This scent is definitely one for your girlfriend, your mother, her mother, your nan, the lady down the street that occasionally says hi to you . . . Basically this is a perfume for any lady in your life.

CABSLAM Berlin | Travel

I love brunch, there’s just something so much better about having brunch than breakfast or lunch. Even though 99% of the time I’ll have all three . . . I can eat okay?

I love all of the food that you can get because there’s usually loads of different things including avocados, eggs, fancy different things which you never knew excited. So on my recent travels to Berlin as soon as I heard about the place CABSLAM which is meant to be the place for breakfast/brunch I knew I needed to go.

CABSLAM – Innstraße 47, Neukölln, 12045, Berlin

CABSLAM actually stands for The California Breakfast Slam so you can understand why they shortened the name, even though it’s nice putting that everywhere would take ages. The name comes from the fact that it’s an American style place that serves breakfast and brunch served with some California love.

Have I already mentioned how much I love this place? Like I honestly fell in love with it and would love to go back to Berlin simply for this place, if you’re ever in the city it’s a must.

Fair enough it is a short trek to find it and we did get a little confused by our map apps, it took us through some of not the best streets which was a little scary but at the same time I loved it, you really got a feel for the place and saw the bits that’s not just on show as you would expect. This doesn’t mean that CABSLAM is in some sort of run down, unsafe slum by any means – you’re perfectly safe.

I opted for the Huevos Rancheros in the brunch size for €8.90 and if you’re not aware what that is it’s basically a plate of two homemade corn tortilla with two fried eggs, black beans, fresh pico de gallo salsa, guacamole and sour cream. I’ve never tried this before but thought it sounded like the perfect thing and oh my days was it one of the best things I’ve ever eaten.
It was honestly so good and just writing this post and looking back at the photos is making me drool, I might have to try and recreate this myself at home one day.

Mark on the other hand opted for the Breakfast Burrito for €6.90, not going to lie I was completely tempted to opt for this one myself because it sounds amazing. ‘Flour tortilla filled with egg, bacon, cheese, black beans, ranchero sauce and potato.’ – I would be lying if I said I didn’t end up eating probably half of it, I can’t help it. I have a thing for eggs okay?

Overall get me on a plane back to this place asap.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Mattifying Base Primer | Beauty

I’m so bad that when it comes to makeup I actually hardly use primer, probably the reason why my skin is awful and my makeup looks horrible after a while.

But I’m trying to be better and trying to get into primers again and with the whole L’Oreal Paris Infallible hype going round I decided to test out their Mattifying Base Primer £8.99.

It comes in the same packaging as the foundation does but it’s just filled with the clear primer (obviously.) It’s a pretty thick primer with that weird primer texture, do you know what I mean? Like it has a weird texture that I get with all primers, basically it feels like all the others.

I’ve used this for a while now with the foundation and I love it, it keeps my foundation in place all day and it creates a lot less creasing than I normally would get.

I would like to point out that when I was badly sunburnt I used this for that little protection layer with my foundation and to ya know try and make sure you couldn’t see my bubbling, crusty skin through it. Seriously I looked like a old mans saggy, crusty ballsack.

It was disgusting.

But this primer saved it a little, like I still looked bad but I didn’t look anywhere near as bad as I did without the foundation on.

Overall fave primer at the minute!

YSL False Lash Effect Mascara | Beauty

YSL YSL

I’m so fussy when it comes to mascaras, I can never find one that I truly love or even find one that works for me. Usually every mascara I try makes my non existent lashes look short and stumpy, with the occasionally horror spider lashes.

So I decided to treat myself on a whim really, so I purchased the YSL False Lash Effect Mascara £24.99YSL False Lash Effect Mascara £24.99 – the most bloody expensive mascara I’ve ever bought. But oh my do I regret buying this, not because of the fact I hate it but because of the complete opposite – I absolutely adore this mascara which sucks because now I have to fork out basically £25 whenever it runs out.

I love the packaging of this with it being smooth and gold, it just looks so fancy and expensive – which is good because ya know it bloody is. The formula of this is pretty wet, but not so wet that it becomes a nucience and every time you blink you get serious smudgy panda eyes. You just have to make sure that you’re eyes have dried a little before looking up so you don’t ruin your shadow.

Can’t mess up that blending now can we.

I’ve had this YSL False Lash Effect Mascara now for around 3 months and I basically use it everyday and it’s no where near drying up at all so I feel like it’s one of those mascaras that lasts for ages, which is great considering the price. How many times can I mention the price?

Overall I love, love, love this mascara. It makes my lashes look so long and fluttery like it’s actually amazing considering my lashes normally look horrific.

Life Update | Lifestyle

life update

It’s been a while hasn’t it?

I feel like I’m taking so many breaks at the minute but sometimes it’s just what you need, ya know? I’ve had to much going on in my life that I’ve barely had time to breath with all the stressing I’ve been doing, never mind actually sit down to write a blog post.

But here I am, sat here about to write about everything that’s happened to me – or at least part of it. I’m all for sharing stuff especially on my own little place on the internet but there’s some things that’s just not to be shared.

Well where do I start? I’ve got a new job, a family member died, I left my boyfriend of six years and moved out of the house we lived in together.

Basically my life did a whole 360 and if you even mentioned to me half the stuff I’ve done in the past months I would of laughed in your face.

I’ve gotten my first tattoo, stopped being the person that says they’re going to do something then not do it. I’m doing it now. If I say I’m doing it, I’m going to do it.

Life’s too short to be unhappy.

I’ve decided that I need to start being more selfish and doing things for me, because I want to do it. Yeah it might hurt some people along the way but that’s life isn’t it?

I will admit that moving out on your own is super hard though, especially in these circumstances. But ya know what? I’m doing it and I’m proud of myself for it.

But yeah, basically that’s it.
If any of you reading this is my friend or see me in real life, please give me a cuddle and be supportive.
I’ve just got to much shit going on at once that it’s hard and I need my friends.
