Recent Favourites - A Little Bit of Everything!

It's been a while since I last did a favourites post and there's been quite a few things I've been loving recently so I thought now was a good time!
I have to start with my most recent favourite, it's the new song by Adele - Hello. When I first heard it I wasn't sure but after the second listen, I was obsessed. It's been stuck in my head ever since! I can't wait to hear the rest of the album! Another song I have been loving is the new one by One Direction - Perfect, I just love any new music from them, and over the last few months I've got a real crush for Harry Styles, I never used to understand the fuss about him but now he is looking amazing! I'm actually really sad about them 'going on a break' I haven't seen them live yet! A few others songs are Wasn't Expecting That by Jamie Lawson, the video just kills me. And I really like On My Mind from Ellie Goulding. What music are you loving at the moment?

A few TV favourites have been The Apprentice and Geordie Shore. I didn't watch The Apprentice last year and I don't think I have done for a while for some reason but I really wanted to watch it this year. It's been so good! I think one of the men should win this year, I don't like any of the women so far! I was so happy Geordie Shore started again last week, it's just so funny and I think every series gets better and better. I look forward to it every week.

Over the last few weeks I have been loving getting my cosy clothes on, I love Autumn and Winter and it means I don't have to worry as much about what to wear as I just want to be warm! I have been wearing my favourite boots from Next that I got in London earlier on in the year, they do hurt my feet after a while but they're so great for the cold weather and I've been wearing them everyday to work.

A few beauty favourites have been my new purchases from Barry M. I mentioned in this post. I got their Gelly Nail Polish in Dragon Fruit and Plum. Dragon Fruit is definitely more of a colour for summer as its a pastel pink but I love it and think it adds a nice bit of colour! And Plum is just a gorgeous dark purple, great for autumn and winter! I managed to get a free Barry M mascara when I got both of these from Superdrug too which was a bonus!

There haven't been many food favourites but I had to mention Mini Heroes! I love this time of year when all of the christmas chocolate comes out and they have all the big tubs and bags of heroes, roses, quality street etc. We've already gone through quite a lot of mini heroes, I love the mini twirls!

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lip-liner..

I'm always a bit stuck when it comes to lipsticks, glosses and pencils. I just find it hard to know what suits me and i'm a bit scared of experimenting and I also don't want to spend money on things I might not like. I normally always know what I like when it comes to foundation, mascara, bronzer etc. but I have little ideas when it comes to my lips. 

I love the Rimmel Lasting Finish Colour Rush Balm in 'Touch of Mauve' and I think that sort of dark toned pink really suits me. I hate to say it but its one of those 'your lips but better'. The only thing I don't like about it is that it isn't matte and it is a bit glossy. I think matte products look better on my lips than glossy, im not sure why, I just don't like it. I have a few other lipsticks and glosses but none that I really love so I picked up the Maybelline Colour Sensational Lip Liner.
I've never used a liner before on my lips and im not using it to literally line the edges of my lips and then cover with something else. I use a technique I saw on the Pixiwoo youtube channel where you do line your lips then get a lip brush and blend it in all over your lips and it leaves a subtle colour without having to pencil it all on and it looking a bit too much! 

The colour I got was Intense Pink which is actually a really similar colour to the Touch of Mauve Balm, the reason I went for it was I didn't want to stray too much and wanted something that wasn't too different. Maybe soon i'll brave it and pick it up in a few different shades and see what they look like! I love how subtle the colour is and it stays on for a few hours which I think is really good for a lip pencil. Its nice and creamy, definitely not drying on the lips but not glossy either so the perfect one for me. 

I can see myself using this loads and I definitely want to pick a few more up when I get paid! 

What's your favourite lip product? Have you tried any of the Colour Sensational Lip Liners?

Weekend Summary #9 - The Worst Cold!

I literally have the worst cold at the moment. It started Thursday and I just knew it wasn't going to go away, its Sunday when im writing this and I've spent the day sneezing and coughing and generally feeling like death warmed up. You don't realise how much you appreciate breathing until you have a blocked nose. When I have a blocked nose I turn into a monster, I feel so bad for George because i'm just a nightmare when im ill or in any sort of pain, god knows how i'll cope when I have children. 

We really needed a food shop so on Saturday we went to Asda and spent more money than we intended too. We bought loads of treats, im sure its a rule when you have a sore throat and feel like actual crap, you can eat what you want. We got Ben and Jerrys, Mini Heroes, Pizza, just everything. When we got in I had a long, hot bath and then later on we watched Gone Girl. We'd both been wanting to watch it for ages but we bought the book first and wanted to read that first. George started it a few days ago and has finished it already. I knew it was probably going to be quite complicated so I thought I'd watch the film before reading the book. Oh My God, I don't even know what to say about the film, so weird! It was really good and there were lots of twists and I had no idea how it was going to end. But that said I hated the ending! I don't want to give anything away but seriously she's a psycho and deserved way more than she got. 
On Sunday I made a roast, I was determined to make something nice even though I don't have much taste at the moment! Sausages, Roast Potatoes, Stuffing, Yorkshire Puddings and lots of vegetables! It was amazing, I could actually eat a roast everyday!

What did you get up to this weekend?

Weekend Summary #8 - Christmas Shopping!

This weekend was really really nice. I don't know what it was that made it so good but it was just generally a really good few days, Friday started off well as I got an early finish, I did have to do an IT test for my apprenticeship though but I think it went okay, was still home an hour or so earlier than normal though!

We had a lovely Friday night with Georges sister and brothers and the boys stayed the weekend. We also had the best Morrisons pizza on Friday too! I could eat it again now. On Saturday we decided to go to our favourite Ed's Diner, I honestly feel like it looks like we go every few weeks but we really don't, it's just so nice! The boys went for chicken burgers and cheesy fries, I went for the slick dog which is a hot dog with barbecue sauce and cheese sauce and George had a pulled pork burger I think, also we shared wet fries which just get better very time! Obviously we had to get dessert, the boys both had a sundae and we shared cheesecake. We then went looking for some Christmas decorations and Primark had loads. We picked up a big pack of gold, red and copper (I think) baubles for £5. I thought they'd match the living room and I also picked up some lights too. Just need to get some tinsel and that's the tree sorted! Oh and we need to buy a tree soon. I'm so excited! I honestly can't wait to buy people's presents next month, I've already thought of a few things for people. Are you getting sorted for Christmas yet? When we got in we played the beanboozled challenge which was disgusting but so funny, I of course got the sick jelly bean as my first one! And we watched The Woman in Black, I didn't like it and I'm normally okay with scary films! Oh and I made Pasta Bake!
Sunday was just a relaxed day, the boys all went on the Xbox and I spent some time blogging. When the boys went I got started on tea, chicken wrapped in parma ham with 5 whole grain rice, salad and some new potatoes. I'm going to do a post on this because it's become a new favourite,  I can't get enough of it.

I hope you had a lovely weekend, what did you get up to?

Weekend Summary #6 and #7 - Payday Shopping!

I hope these posts don't get boring for people as i'm aware I really don't do much exciting and the last few weeks I just haven't felt great. So I thought I would combine last weeks and this weeks, last week I had the worst period pains, why do they exist! So we had a movie day which definitely made me feel a little better!

We watched Man Up which we've been wanting to see for ages and seriously it was just the best film. Simon Pegg is so funny and I loved the story, I can't wait to get it on DVD, I really recommend it if you want a good film to watch on a Saturday night. We also watched a new film with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, it was okay, I suppose what I expected, I don't think I would rush to watch it again but it was funny. Apart from that I literally did nothing which was actually quite nice.
The weekend just gone George was off on Friday so I met him after work and we went to Meadowhall as I had been paid a few days before, payday is just the best. I have been wanting some new cosy pyjamas for ages as its really getting cold now and I saw the perfect ones on Instagram a few days ago and I had to get them! They're Winnie the Pooh which is just my absolute favourite, I already have a Winnie Onesie but I still needed these, they were £13 and you get the cosy pyjama bottoms and long sleeved top and some fluffy socks too. I love them. I also picked up my Superdrug order, Barry M have an offer on at the moment, spend £7 on their products and get a free Showgirl Mascara, I really need some nail polish and theirs is my favourite so I thought I would go for it and get the offer. I got the nail polish in the colour Plum which I think is going to be a new favourite of mine, so perfect for winter, and I got Dragon Fruit which is a really nice pink and I don't have many like that. I've used the Mascara once so far but it seems really good and I'm looking forward to using it again to see how it compares to my Rimmel Endless Mascara, I might do a full review in a few weeks. As I am such an amazing fiance, I also bought George Fifa 16 which I know has been out for a few weeks and he really wanted it, I expect a pretty good present when he gets paid now ;) When we got in I relaxed with a glass of wine which has a really weird name but its really nice, while George cooked tea.
This post is long enough so I think i'll leave it there but we really didn't do much else, just spent some time together and had a really nice weekend, we also watched loads of Doctor Foster as we had it recorded, how amazing is it! So tense and I can't wait to see how it ends on Wednesday. Have you been watching it? Next week should be a bit more exciting as we have Georges brothers to stay and i'm sure we'll be taking them somewhere fun!
