Where Have I Been!?

I feel like I haven't stopped over the last few weeks yet I can't really piece together what has been going on. One things for sure is that I have been massively neglecting my poor little blog! 
Me and Josh celebrated our first year together at the beginning of the month the best way that we could by doing all our favourite things! We went to our favourite american diner, Buddies, played pirate mini golf and had a yummy dinner at TGI's, I was completely spoilt with a new camera which I am so in love with and still trying to get to grips with all of its amazing features. We've also been on a lot of mini adventures to various places, one of my favourites was our trip to Winpole Hall to visit the farm and piggery they have there, I love pigs, we even got to see lots of little piglets which were so adorable! 

I'm coming to the end of my college course so I have been working my little butt off trying to get all my final assignments complete and handed in as soon as possible so I can get signed off and start enjoying my summer. With summer comes holidays and I am frantically preparing for mine to Mexico in a few weeks time. I have started writing lists and dedicated a drawer under my bed to start storing my holiday clothes in so they are ready to be bunged in my suitcase the night before. 
I am currently working on a little project of my own as part of my future career and business so I've dedicated a lot of time to planning and researching anything and everything related to running and owning a business as well as the essentials I need for the job. Its a lot of hard work but hopefully it will pay off soon!

On Friday through to Saturday evening myself and Josh took part in a charity challenge for work. We signed up for the Bike24 challenge which involved teams from every Marks & Spencer store in the country coming together to complete a 24 hour bike ride around rockingham race track. We had a team of four and did hour shifts in a four hour rotation cycling for a total of 6 hours throughout the 24 hour period. That may not seem that hard but trust me, when its windy, raining and you are running on less that two hours sleep it really takes its tole. I cycled a total of 89km over the 24 hours and we raised over £850,000 for multiple cancer charities. I am still recovering today!

My Everyday MakeUp Routine!

I love watching everyday makeup routine videos but when you aren't a youtuber there is only so much you can do with a camera! Welcome to my blogger version of my everyday makeup routine on the occasion I actually wear it..
I always reach for my Urban Decay De Slick first to banish the oily skin. I follow that with one pea sized pump of Urban Decay's Naked Skin foundation smoothed in with my Real Techniques powder brush.
 I have quite bad dark circles under my eyes so I apply a little bit of benefit's erase paste under my eyes with a topshop concealer brush and a little dab of my finger. To get a little bit of colour from Benefit's Havanna blush on my cheek bones.
 Lastly I tackle my very minimal eye look with a couple of coats of my favourite mascara, Barry M Lash Vegas and a dab of Revlon Lip Butter in Cupcake and that is my very minimal and probably very boring make up routine!

May Favourites!

Well I haven't done one of these posts for absolutely ages! 
This month I have been loving some brand new products and rediscovering some oldies. 

My lips have been getting some special attention this month due to them being so dry so I have rediscovered the classic Revlon lip butter in 'Cupcake' it is delicious in colour and name. It applies so smooth and stays like a dream. Another lip butter has crept into my collection in the form of the new Nivea Raspberry Rose. I love this! It is my new favourite and essential everyday product. My lips feel nourished and so soft after just one application. 

I have super sensitive skin, especially around my eyes, so removing make up with wipes is torture even if they are for sensitive skin so I'd like to take this opportunity to say Thank You Huggies! Huggies pure baby wipes are the only wipe I have found that will remove even waterproof mascara without stinging my eyes unbearably, they are so soft and gentle its like using pure water. Love.

I got the MonuSpa hand and nail moisturiser in a glossybox way back when ItsCharr first started and sort of neglected it in a drawer somewhere. Since rediscovering it a few weeks ago my hands have never felt softer. It will not being going back into a drawer anytime soon!

I've written a whole post about how much I love Barry M's Lash Vegas so read all about that right here!

Barry M Gelly polishes are their best invention ever. I love the thicker consistency and easier application the gelly polishes have. I pretty much want to own the whole collection. Did anyone else notice that the Barry M counters were completely stripped of nail polishes a week or so ago?

Mallzee - Your Personal Online Mall!

received an email nearly, a year ago now, from the lovely Cally at Mallzee to tell me about the brand new website that was due to launch this year. A couple of weeks ago Cally emailed me again to tell me they were now Live! Since then I have been addicted.

Mallzee is basically your own tailor made mall on the internet, combining your own personal style with your favourite stores. Before you get to visit your personal mall Mallzee supplies you with a selection of outfit pictures and a like and dislike button for you to tell them what your personal style is like, next you are given a list of stores, online and on the high street, for you to select the ones that you like to shop at. Analysis complete its onto your mall! The mall itself actually really surprised me as mine was really accurate to the styles I would normally go for. Each store is individually categorized or you can search for 'tops' 'dresses' ect.. All items contain a price and 'buy me' option. Another feature I like on Mallzee is the 'add to wardrobe' button. This allows you to save items for later purchases, like when pay day is too far away and your money is somewhat dwindling, and it also allows your friends to check it out and tell you their opinions, if you want them. Connecting to Mallzee via facebook gives you the opportunity to chat with your friends about anything you want, comparing outfits or boys. Mallzee offer a points scheme in the form of Mallzee dollars, every time you shop you earn dollars towards future purchases, they pay you to shop!

Despite being a skeptic when it comes to websites like these, Mallzee has really impressed me and I will definitely be using this when I'm shopping in the future!
What are you waiting for, get over to for some VIP treatment, discounts and your own tailor made shopping experience!
