ASOS Festival Style Wishlist!



Oh look its almost May, which means before we know it we'll be into the summer months that mark the start off the all important festival season! I know that festival attire can be tricky especially with unpredictable Scottish weather, and obviously you need room in your suitcase for more important things like cider, and um...more cider?! But, in an ideal world these are the four things that would be on the top of my list! 

Being a bit of a shorty (I'm only 5"2!) I absolutely adore playsuits as I think they are probably the only item of clothing that are actually designed to flatter a more petite person. I thought this Asos Playsuit with Multi Strap Detail looked lovely and loose for running around not to mention the gorgeous jade green shade will enhance a summer tan! Speaking of, I would definitely be packing some Korres Yogurt Sunscreen in SPF 30 just in case the sun decides to pop out and say hello. I know there are probably many of you who don't see the importance of a good sunscreen, but for me the 25 year old milestone isn't all that far away, and to think that I will soon have mature skin?! Obviously I need to stop the ageing process well in advance! Being a massive fan of Lana Del Ray I've chose a 'Lanaesque' (check me making up words and shit) Headband by Johnny Loves Rosie , and sadly this much over-worn festival accessory is too pretty for me to resist, as much as I hate to jump on the bandwagon. To carry all those important things (camera, sunglasses, lipbalm) I've spotted this cute Saffiano Vivienne Westwood Bag in bright yellow, which will go amazing with the playsuit. I know its all about Michael Kors these days, but I'm still in love with Vivienne darling and she will always, always, always, be my first choice of designer handbag! 

What are your festival style essentials?

A Few April Favorites.



Sorry to state the obvious here, but I feel as though it was only yesterday I was sitting at this very same laptop editing pictures for my March favorites! Wow, this month has absolutely flew by! 

First up is every bloggers new fave false tanner going by the name of Cocoa Brown! I cannot tell you how happy I am to have finally found my holy grail tanning product! The shaving foam-like texture of this mousse makes it easy to apply and leaves me streak free every time. What I love more than anything is the fact that this develops in an hour making it perfect for those last minute nights out! To be honest the colour isn't perfect or as dark as I'd like and it will go slightly orange if you leave it on too long; but I've heard there is a new darker version now available so perhaps this will be better suited to my needs! Another newbie fave this month is the Clearskin Blackhead Clearing Mask from Avon which is a strange one as I actually don't really suffer from blackheads, but this is amazing for brightening and refining the skin, and instantly after washing this off my skin looks so much more radiant! I can't really tell you whether or not this will solve your blackhead problems, because as I said that's not really one of my skin concerns, but its really affordable so I really recommend you give it a try. Another skincare product I've been loving is the Naturally Radiant Brightening Eye Cream. Believe it or not I've actually never used an eye cream consistently before. I guess I just never really saw them as a necessary step in my routine, but I am definitely noticing the difference. This one in particular aims to diminish the appearance of dark circles whilst keeping the area hydrated. The only negative is that it doesn't contain an SPF. You can see my review of this and other products in the naturally radiant range here

Moving on to make up there's a few old favorites on the list. I've been using my Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation almost daily recently and with good reason. This is an amazing base for spring as it offers light to medium coverage, but gives the skin a gorgeous radiant glow! It also boasts an SPF of 15, which for a drugstore foundation is pretty impressive. I've also been using my amazing Lancome Hypnose Mascara, which is actually one of the first mascaras I ever used! I love how this gives my lashes such amazing definition and length, it really makes my eyes pop, and although this is a little pricey I doubt I'll ever stop buying this. It's just that good! New to my collection is the Urban Decay De-Slick Make Up Setting Spray, which has completely taken me by surprise by how good it is! I always thought Make up setting sprays were a bit of a farce, but actually this one has proved me wrong. It keeps oil at bay for the whole day, so much so that I don't even have to powder! Yaaaay for that! I also have a little non beauty favorite in the shape of my favorite Yankee Candle Scent! Vanilla Frosting is just sweet enough without being too sweet and leaves a strong hint of vanilla lingering long after you've blown out the candle and turned out the light. Its perfect for those of us with a fondness for sickly sweet scents, but it may give you a sore head if not. I think its mega yummy though!

So that's what I've been loving this month! How about you guys? Any of you enjoy these products as much as I do?

POTD: The Reverse Hair Wash!

I'm wondering if any of you have heard of the new hair trend that seems to be taking bloggersphere by storm recently. Basically, it involves washing your hair in reverse order. 'CRAZY!' I hear you all say. 'Conditioner before shampoo?!' Well, I was rather skeptical at first myself. I have really thick, long hair which is difficult to manage, prone to a lil frizz, and dry ends. Since trying the reverse wash technique my hair is a lot less tangled, shinier, and seems to look longer! Even my bleached ends from a DIY ombre kit (never doing THAT again in a hurry) seem a lot more moisturized and protected. My hair also seems to have a lot more body and elasticity, and even when straightened it doesn't sit flat on my head, which is something I depsise about my hair!! To add to this I haven't had to wash it as often and its solved the old 'dry ends oily roots' dilemma! I'm going to be sticking to this routine for a long long time! 



Have any of you tried the reverese hair washing? What are your thoughts?

Botanics Charcoal Mask and Cleansing Balm.



Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm : I've basically been on the look out for a good drugstore cleansing balm ever since my AMAZING, but ever so pricey Emma Hardie one ran out! I'm such a hugeeeee fan of cleansing balms as they are a much more luxurious way of taking your make up off, and leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated. This one is a little harder to work with as its more solid than the EH one, but once you rub it on your face its basically the same idea. I like the fact that this is organic, along with the fact it comes with the little cloth (I feel as though I say this all the time, why am I obsessed with muslin cloths)?! It's very mild, and didn't irritate my skin nor did it leave it feeling greasy, and I've also heard that rosehip is good for fading acne scars, which is definitely one of my biggest skin problems! I don't really have anything bad to say about this as its an amazing, affordable luxury product. The scent is almost as good as the EH one (almost)! Thoroughly impressed, although I will probably purchase the EH one again over this when I have the money. I'm interested to see if this will make any long term impact on my skin.

Ionic Clay Mask : I love face masks to the point where I probably use them far too much. I feel as though every time I go shopping I need to buy a new one. There are pamper sessions to be had and those spots won't go away by themselves, so of course it was inevitable that I would eventually purchase this one to stow away with the rest of my ever expanding collection. I think clay masks are great for oily skin as they really seem to absorb excess oil as well as draw out impurities, and I love anything that dries on your skin as its almost as though you can feel it lifting out the excess oils and impurities. Immediately after using this my skin looked brighter, the texture was more refined, and it felt more alive than usual. The information says: "The oceanic clay exhibits a negative electrical charge, which helps draw out deep-rooted impurities without over drying." Despite having no idea as to what the 'negative charge' part actually means this is a statement I one hundred percent agree with as although my skin felt extremely clean after using this it wasn't at all dry. I would like to point out that this is quite messy so I had to use a foundation brush and apply a tiny bit at a time. 

I think its amazing to see that budget brands are really stepping up their game when it comes to skin care, and I've found so many amazing dupes for bigger brands recently, and I really hope this continues!!

What do you think of the Boots Botanics range? have any of you ever tried these products?

Lana Del Ray Inspired Vintage Lace

Hello lovelies! I don't think I've ever done a 'fashion' post or an outfit of the day, so I thought it was about time I sorted that out! With the nice weather starting to come out I've been properly raiding my wardrobe for cute vintage style dresses I can wear with bare legs, and I love this cute one from Next!







Dress: Next
Bag: Topshop
Earrings: Primark
Bracelet: Matalan
Shoes: New Look

I think the black leather bag and gold jewellery toughens this super sweet lace dress up. I love the dress as it reminds me of something Lana Del Ray would wear! And if you didn't know already I'm such a huge 
fan of everything she wears! Also I'm not sure why I look so grumpy in the picture, probably because that's the only way I photograph well! I look ridiculous when I smile!

What do you all think of this look?

Too Old For University?!

*Image from Pinterest.
It seems to be quite the norm these days to go straight from school into higher education, and whilst there is nothing at all wrong with that I often wonder whether or not young people are being given proper guidance about the options available to them after they leave school. In my opinion far too many people jump at the chance of a place at university even though they have no idea what they want to do or even what their course of choice entails. I think a lot of people probably feel some sort of pressure on them, especially with the job situation at the moment, but I think you need to be really sure that higher education is for you. I left school with excellent Higher results which got me an unconditional place on an English Literature course at Glasgow University. Why English lit you say? Simple really. I was good at it in school. 

Its no surprise that a year and a half later I dropped out. I hated the course, and as a result I stopped doing the work I needed to do in order to get good grades. It was quite disheartening going from As to Ds, and it made me realize how little I cared about the subject after all. The whole time I spent at GU I felt as though life was just passing me by. All I felt was stressed and anxious, which is something no 19 year old should ever feel. I was super scared to tell my mum and dad that I wanted to withdraw, but they were really supportive and understood my decision. My adviser of study also said I could pick up were I left off as long as there was space for me when I came back. Of course I didn't want to go back. I started working full time, mainly in a nightclub and got myself a senior position in my cashier job. The money wasn't amazing but I feel like I gained so much life experience and employability skills in those short two years. Around that time I also started to toy around with the idea of running a blog. Of course it took me a long time to build up the confidence to do it and only last August 'The China doll Diaries' was born. 

Now at the more mature age of 22 I decided to go back to university, and I'm pretty glad I did. By this time I had had enough time to decide that I wanted to go down the teaching or journalism route (maybe even both) and I saw university as a way to gain my dream career, rather than just something to fill up my time. Don't get me wrong it is slightly daunting to think that I would have graduated last summer. But, in a subject I hate with zero life experience and no idea of what I truly wanted to do. I feel a lot more relaxed this time around, and now that I'm studying something I actually enjoy my grades are soaring again. I've also found that the more mature me is more likely to ask for help when she needs it! Something which I was so bad at the first time around. It is strange to think that by the end of the year some of my friends will be earning double the salary I was on when I worked full time while I class myself as a poverty stricken student. But I don't consider myself lagging behind. Sure it would be lovely to have a mortgage, or be in the position to pay of my student debt but its only a few years of my life and this time I'm pursuing a career rather than a job. And now when it comes to graduation I'll have so much more to put on my CV from managing business social media to running my very own blog! 

So what is the point in this post? I guess I just wanted to let people know that its OKAY if you don't know what you want to do with your life. Believe me when I say I know 30 somethings who still don't know what they want to do. So don't be fooled into thinking higher education is the only way forward for you, it might be an option yes, but it doesn't have to happen straight away. Gap years are a great way to get some life experience through travelling or working or even volunteering. I just wish that the teachers in my school had given us more information on what our options were. It was pretty much higher education or nothing, and that shouldn't be the case. Do what you want to do and pursue the dreams you want to pursue, because you will only be young once. 

Are any of you about to leave school or has anyone experienced any of these issues before? Let me know what you think?

Prep, Prime and Set; Longer Lasting Make up.



If there's anything in the beauty world that I am a certified expert in; it's getting my make up to last the day. When you have oily skin that can be quite tricky, but over the years I have enlisted a few certain products to help me, so I thought I'd do a little round up of my favourites.
 
It goes without saying that in order to get flawless make up, you need to start with a flawless base. I alway make sure I double cleanse and moisturize my skin properly before I apply my make up. The cleaner your skin the easier it is going to be for you to apply make up. I also use a primer daily. I think a lot of people don't quite realise how important it can be to use a primer if your skin is anything less than perfect. I mainly use mine to smooth over imperfections, and help my make up to last the day (or night). My current favourite is the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer, which does such an amazing job of keeping my face shine free. As well as my usual face primer I also have one for under my eyeshadow, something I deem completely necessary if you are planning on staying perfect while dancing in a sweaty nightclub. My all time favourite, and the eyeshadow primer which really cannot be beaten is the Urban Decay Primer Potion. This moisturizes your eyelids to stop eyeshadow from creasing, and I swear by it on the rare occassion that I actually wear eyeshadow.
 
If I'm wearing lipstick I will normally apply a little lip balm about five minutes before I start doing my make up. This way when I apply my product it is not sticking to any dry patches that my lips normally have. I've also started wearing lip liner. For ages and ages I never really saw what the point in lip liner was, but recently I tried it after a friend told me she swore by it and now I'm hooked. I really can't believe I'd been wearing lipstick for all these years to a bazillion nights out without lip liner! It is so good at making your lipstick last longer and an absolute dream for thin lipped gals like myself as it really enhances your cupids bow. The one I've been wearing the most is the Glimmerstick Liner by Avon in True Red, which is super cheap, yet works a treat!

The last thing you need to do if you want long lasting make up is to set it properly using either a spray or powder. The amount of tutorials I have watched on YouTube to see that most people don't set their make up? Crazy! I usually use either/or, but for nights out I tend to do both for a bit of extra security. I will ALWAYS use a powder no matter what look I am going for; truth is, my make up just seems to melt off my face without it. At the moment I'm using One Heck of A Blot by Soap & Glory, and absolutely loving it! Its probably one of the best I've ever used! My favourite setting spray is Urban Decay's De-slick, which is an absolute dream for oily skin! I don't know how it does what it does, but it definitely works! I'd actually never been a fan of make up setting sprays, shunning them scornfully until this little baby fell into my life (or my online shopping basket). Now I can't imagine going to a nightclub without it!

So, what are you guys tips and tricks for making make up last longer? Do you think priming and setting are always necessary steps to your make up routine?

Trying to do Spring Make Up with MUA.

I hope that everyone is as happy to see the sunshine as I am!! Although living in Glasgow its actually such a blessing just to have a dry day since I can't quite remember the last time the rain stayed away for a whole day! But, if the weather has changed it means also that the make up must be updated, and admittedly spring make up is just not my thing. I love full coverage bases, statement lips and bold brows. Natural/minimal make up just doesn't work for me. But then again maybe its just me that doesn't feel comfortable replacing my beloved full coverage foundation with a BB cream. If there's anything that I do like about spring make up it is definitely the radiant skin and natural lip element. So, obviously I was slightly naughty and bought a few MUA bits to trial the look. 



Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter: I've actually never used a powder highlighter before, in fact I'm not sure if I've even ever used a highlighter, but I've seen this one featured on a few blogs so obviously I wanted to give it a try. It's quite a pale pink with a slight peachy tone to it, and quite a lot of shimmer. I will warn you that you should use this sparingly or you WILL get a glittery face. But a little of this on the cheekbones and forehead gave my skin a lovely glow. I'm just not sure that the colour is right for my skin tone, but I can't really complain about this as its dirt cheap and you get loads of product. It's definitely made me more open to using a highlighter, and I'd love to try a more high end one!



Intense Kisses Lipgloss: Lipgloss is one of those products I just automatically associate with being 13 years old. Lip gloss was probably the first make up I ever used, and back then it was horribly sticky and came in a little squeezy tube which meant too much product would always come out . This one from MUA is worlds away from the tacky formula of those. It's quite wet but doesn't at all feel sticky and leaves just a nice natural amount of colour on the lips. It also lasted quite a bit longer than I expected it to, but I did have to top it up every so often. Its strange to be using something that I automatically assumed I'd grown out of, and its worth a mention that the packaging of this is really cute!  Also FYI the colour Quick Kiss is not as bright as it looks from my photo. Its actually pretty natural. 



What are you guys ideas of spring make up? Is it something you love or loathe?

The Reliable Base; Estee Lauder Double Wear



If you read my blog regularly you will by now be well aware that I have OILY and SPOT PRONE skin, and not only that but I often have breakouts of acne which leave me with horrible under the skin lumps and unsightly red scars. Obviously when my skin is being a pest I rather enjoy the benefits of a high coverage foundation, but until about a year ago I struggled to find one which could cover my imperfections AND look perfectly natural. High coverage foundations would very often feel heavy on my skin, cling to a few dry patches and just make me look...well...flat!

I discovered Estee Lauder Double Wear via a video I saw on YouTube. (Really wish I could remember the You tuber that gave it such a spiffing review as I feel like I owe her one!) That same You tuber seemed to be suffering from all the same skin problems as I was which is why I went out and immediately purchased myself a bottle (along with the amazing concealer), and never looked back. Well actually I did. After a while of taking antibiotics and applying benzyl peroxide my skin actually cleared up! By this point it was also approaching summer so of course I wanted something to enhance my newly found clear skin.

Recently my problematic skin reared its ugly head, and I've found myself relying on this beaut once again. Believe me when I tell you that I have a huge stash of foundations, and have yet to find anything that covers as well as this one. It also lasts incredibly long. I kid you not I have awoken in the morning after a night out and this still looks perfect (We all 'forget' to take our make-up off sometimes right?). It blends well, you need very little, and assuming you get the right colour for your skin tone it will not give you that dreadful 'cake face' look. Oh and FYI you WILL get your perfect colour because this bad boy boasts 31 shades! The only minor problem I have is that this doesn't come with a pump and so can be quite messy. I'm also unsure whether it will work for all skin types because my mum who has dry, mature skin doesn't rate it as much as I do. 

Are there any other double wear fans out there?

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Skincare.

I'm not usually a fan of budget skincare and prefer to spend a little more on the products I use on my face! I always think your make up looks so much better if you take proper care of your skin, and so I don't really mind a cheeky splurge on a night cream or a toner. Superdrug's Naturally Radiant range seems to be made for brightening the skin, and all of the products contain mulberry extract and kiwi. I should let you all know that I normally shy away from brightening products due to the oily/prone to breakout skin I've been 'blessed' with. I always think that brightening products can cause more harm than good to my skin. However, I haven't yet found this to be the case with these despite using them for a few weeks now! (Hurrah!) The packaging is also really good quality and reminds me of Liz Earle skincare!



Hot Cloth Cleanser : This is a lovely luxurious product, and when it says that it brightens the skin it certainly means so! I actually noticed a huge difference straight away after using this! My skin was definitely softer and more refined, and my moisturizer sank in like a dream! It also takes of every scrap of make up including mascara, although I would advise you take your eye make up off first. You even get the little muslin cloth in the box which is more than I can say for some of the more expensive hot cloth cleansers available. 

Brightening Eye Cream : This is my favourite of the bunch. As soon as I put it on I noticed a little difference in the huuuuuge, dark, under eye circles I've inherited (thanks dad!). This is actually an amazing eye cream for the price, it contains sugar beet extract and has tiny shimmer particles which brighten the area. I also found that my under eye concealer (Boing FYI) was less dry or prone to creasing when I used this! Massive thumbs up!

Brightening Radiance Balm  : Like the eye cream this also contains shimmer particles which really added some luminosity to my usually dull skin. I think this looks gorgeous when used under a matte foundation, and although I've not tried it yet I suspect this would look amazing mixed in with a high coverage foundation for a  super flattering base that both covers and highlights.I'm not quite sure whether or not this is supposed to be used in place of a normal daily moisturizer, and if so; it looses points for the lack of SPF. As long as your foundation had a suitable SPF though you could get away with this.

Renewal Face Mask : Unfortunately, this is the one product out of them all that I didn't like. I used it a few times and didn't really see or feel like it did anything at all to my skin! Unlike the hot cloth cleanser I didn't see any added radiance, nor did it make my skin any softer! However, I have been thinking that it may just be my skin type as I normally go for heavier face masks to get rid of oil, and dirt. I'm a serial user of face masks containing ingredients like charcoal, and seaweed, so maybe its just that my skin has built up an immunity to lighter, radiance boosting masks. I'm actually going to give this to my mum and see if she can find any benefits from using it. Her skin is very different to mines (mature, dry skin) so maybe she will find that it works for her.

Overall, I'm seriously impressed with this range and will definitely be trying out a few more things! The products are super cheap, but give good results. I've been won over, and I'm certain I'll be mega sad when I get to the end of this eye cream.

A Little Late with my March Favourites.



So, as usual I am running slightly behind schedule with my blog posts. Not to worry though as I can see these being firm favourites throughout April too!! I have actually had to whittle down my favourites a bit as there were just too many amazing products I wanted to include. 

I've never been good at using a hand cream and as a result my hands are always a little on the dry side. As gross as that may sound, I am just far too  lazy and forgetful to remember to apply hand cream every evening along with my night moisturizer; which I also sometimes forget (oops). I'm a huge fan of Soap&Glory and I think Hand Food has done a pretty darn good job of making a boring essential like hand lotion seem fun! It contains shea butter, macadamia oil, and marshmallow, smells delicious, and is super cute and girly! I think I'm actually starting to enjoy using this every night!

Next on the list is the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water which has stepped into the shoes of L'oreal's offering purely due to the fact you get twice the amount for the same price! I love cleansing waters as they are the only thing that can deal with my oily skin without making me prone to breakouts. And this really does remove every single trace of make up! I have been following this up with  Lush Tea Tree Water to tone my skin and get rid of nasty impurities! Everyone knows tea tree keeps spots away! I'm also loving Anatomicals No Old Bags Allowed as a substitute for a full 8 hours sleep (haw haw). It really refreshes the under eye area, and is great at covering those signs of the naughty night before.

Onto make up next, I have been using my Sleek Rose Gold Blush ever since I snapped it up from a recent blog sale! It's sooooooooooo pretty! The colour is one of those muted pinks that would suit every skin tone, and the gold shimmer makes for a gorgeous highlight on the cheekbones. I'm actually so impressed with the quality of the packaging and longevity of this for being such a budget product! As mentioned, I suffer from oily skin, and up until a few months ago I was really struggling to find a powder that would keep oil at bay, and not just for an hour or two, but for most of the day. I actually decided to ask my twitter followers what they recommended, and I'm so pleased they got it right! One Heck of a Blot is one of the best pressed powders I have ever used, and it definitely lasts all day. I'm so happy I didn't fork out loads of cash for a really expensive one! Last but not least is something I'm sure most of you will have seen umpteen reviews on by now, and that is the L'oreal Miss Manga Mascara! The shape of the brush makes it so easy to apply to your bottom lashes and it really does add heaps of volume. Its also super easy to get off too, which is sometimes a bit of a problem with thicker mascara's! It definitely deserves the recognition its been getting!

So there you have it, my top products of March! Any of you love these as much as I do?

Wishlist Wednesday!! (Top 3)



So I thought I would share with you guys a few things I have my eye on at the moment! I only made this a 3 piece wishlist as they are all really expensive items! (Haha oops!) These are three items I've actually been craving forever, but with driving lessons, and saving up for a holiday I'm finding it really hard to spend any money on myself (plus I'm supposedly on a spending ban, not that its been stopping me buying beauty items #fail).

I really really really need a new watch! I haven't had one in what seems like forever and working in retail means I have no concept of the time as I'm always busy serving customers and tasking! I love this tortoise shell watch from fossil as I'm not all that into those ultra glamorous Michael Kors watches that everyone and their granny seems to be wearing at the moment. Don't get me wrong they really are beautiful, just not really my thing. Still, I'm an uber-snob when it comes to watches, which means I can't wear one that's not branded and high quality. I love the look of the tortoise shell as I think it looks so unique, and the size of this is perfect for my teeny tiny wrists! I also have been looking for the perfect clutch bag for nights out and I recently bought the cutest Biba coin purse to match this Ruby clutch bag and now I feel as though I MUST get it!! I love leopard print when its done right, and Biba definitely gets it right! I also need new spring/summer heels, as I have far too many pairs of black heels! I definitely think these coral Office wedges will look amazing in the summer with a cute skater skirt and crop tops!

What are you guys lusting over this month?
