This or That Beauty Tag!

Ok so I wasn't tagged by anyone to do this, but who cares! I thought I'd give it a go so you could have a little insight into what I prefer! If you want to do this tag leave a link to it in a comment and I'd love to have a read :)!

Blush or Bronzer
Bronzer! It can be used for contouring, all over glow or even as a blush.
Lipgloss or Lipstick
Lipstick! It has longer staying power than lipgloss.
Eyeliner or Mascara
Mascara 100%. Lashings and lashings of it I just can't get enough!
Foundation or Concealer
Foundation. If it's only a few lumps and bumps here and there that you have to cover just apply a light layer of a lighter coverage foundation!
Neutral or Color (eyeshadow)
For everyday, neutral. I really love wearing browns/coppers/creams... during the day. A light brown smokey eye never goes out of fashion! However if we're talking more of an evening look for going out, it's a black smokey eye all the way!
Pressed or Loose (eyeshadow)
Pressed. Loose pigments are just a pain in the butt! I can guarantee 9 times out of 10 they will go everywhere, and that's just opening the product!
Brushes or Sponges
Brushes. There's just so many to choose from!

Perfume or Body Splash
Perfume! I think I'd feel kinda manly splashing on a fragrance, it's something my dad used to do!
Lotion or Body Butter
I'd have to say Body Butter because I have really dry skin and they're so richly nourishing. However I hate the sticky feeling after applying!
Body Wash or Soap (bar)
Oh come on we aren't in the stone ages! Body wash all the way! 

OPI or China Glaze
OPI, gorgeous shades.
Long or Short
Long, long, long, long, long!
Acrylic or Natural
Natural nails! However for all those girls like me with stubby nails, there's only one way forward and that's acrylics!
Brights or Darks
Brights :)

Thankyou very much for reading! Leave your responses below :)
Lots of love

Nail envy

Every new year since I can remember, my resolution has been to stop biting my nails. Have I ever succeeded? Have I heck! I personally think it is a disgusting habit, and when I see other people doing it I literally cringe inside, so why can't I stop myself?!

There are so many beautiful colours of nail varnish on the market these days, thousands infact, but they just do not look pretty on scabby, bitten nails! I really feel like nail varnish helps finish off an outfit, and whether its in-your-face brights your sporting or more cool, subtle colours on your nails, I feel they somehow bring a sense of daintiness to a person which I myself, am very jealous of! Here are just a few that have taken my fancy!
So as of now, I am making a conscious effort to pack this very annoying and unattractive habit in! Yes, the amount of times I've used this line in my life is extortionate, but this time I am in it for the long run! If you have any tips or tricks on how you stopped biting your nails I would love to know. As Tesco says, every little helps!
Lots of love

Like a Magpie

If there is one thing i love in life excluding makeup, it's jewelry. I am literally jewelry obsessed!! I was once referred to as being like a magpie because I am instantly attracted to anything sparkly or shiny, I just can't help myself! You can have the most plain outfit, and with a bit of glitz you can be glammed up in seconds! A few necklace's layered, an arm full of bangles, big statement earrings, there's so much to choose from. Of course you wouldn't wear everything at the same time, however if I had my way there wouldn't be a finger ringless!  For me there's just something exciting about jingling as you walk, it kind of reminds me of the old school gypsy's you used to hear about where every inch of them would be covered in jewelry!

Here's just a few pieces I randomly selected from the Topshop website, all of which I am in love with!  If you hadn't guessed by now, i'm loving triangled, crosses and very tribal looking pieces! I'm aware that there are many little online boutiques that sell amazing jewelry, so if you have any recommendations I would love to check them out.

Just a quick hello!

Well, here it goes... I officially started blogging! After years of being a beauty addict, I finally caved in to the world of blogging and thought I'd give it a shot! So let me tell you a little bit about myself. 

I'm a 19 year old student who is simply in love with beauty and fashion. In my day to day life I found it difficult to interact with friends about this passion, because if you're not part of the huge beauty community, you simply just do not get it! I'd ramble on and on to people about this amazing new product, or how fabulous this lipstick was, and they just stared through me with a vacant smile as if to say 'please shut up now Jordan!'. So here I find myself! Having those same conversations but with people who actually care about how amazing the new face powder is, people who have the same dilemma's as me on a morning.. do I go with the peach lipgloss or the baby pink?! Such a tough decision...

Anyway, before I ramble even more and bore you all to death I shall wrap up quickly! I hope you enjoy reading my regular rants and raves as much as I will enjoy writing them, and I look forward to hopefully being part of the vast growing beauty community! 

Lots of love :)!
