London + Anberlin

So, on Friday and Saturday I was in London having the time of my life with my boyf. I can confidently say I am suffering with holiday blues big time right now, also knowing I have work today is making it worse.

We left quite early on Friday for London to see Anberlin live in the Electric Ballroom in Camden. I've only been listening to them for the past few months and I have completely fallen in love with their music. They're Craig's favourite band and knew we had to see them as this is their final world tour! The show was absolutely amazing! I've never seen a lead singer sing with so much passion and emotion, just such an incredible show and has made me so excited for all of the gigs we have booked for this year!

(Can kinda see them! The crowd were insane!)
 
We unfortunately could only afford one night, but we managed to get up in the morning to go around the Camden markets, which was just so incredible! I ended up buying a ring and eating the most delicious noodles I've ever had! It was an amazing experience and we can't wait to come back! You could literally just spend more than a day looking around, was so baffled by how much there was!
 (Stuffing my face with deliciousness!)

 I also got to try my first ever bubble tea! I though it was so freaking delicious! I took a whole film of photos on the camera pictured above, hopefully be able to get it developed this week and upload them! The main problem with shooting film is not having the photos instantly! 

I was going to vlog and take a lot more pictures digitally but I was seriously having way too much fun and wanting to experience it all that I completely forgot! 

In about 3 weeks I'm off on an amazing two day cruise and stopping off in France! I honestly feel like the luckiest girl in the world, I have the most amazing partner, we can't wait to explore and I can't wait to share it all on here!

Review: Sleek true colour lipstick and eau lala liner

I've had this review written down for ages and finally getting around to it! This combination of lipstick and liner is just the best and so cheap!

A few months ago I was looking for a dark red/purple vampy lipstick but was having no luck! Even looked in MAC and just nothing stood out! I've been absolutely loving Taylor Momsen's look for ages and wanted to recreate her fabulous look!


Sleek had been gone for a few months from my local Superdrug and I was so bummed! It's such an amazing makeup line! For some reason I just went into there and there it was! Sleek makeup back in my life! I noticed first the liner, Sleek Eau La La Liner in Raisin but was afraid it would be very drying on my lips, so just picked up Sleek lipstick true colour in Cherry too and just thought about mixing them! Best combination ever! I'm so glad I did it! Doing it this way creates an amazing vampy colour and it lasts so long!
I wore it to a family get together, we had Chinese food and a lot to drink and I only had to reapply the lipstick twice! Result! What's even better is that the liner can also be used on your eyes! They have loads of colours and I would love to stock up on more! I really recommend this combination or even your own using Sleek makeup! It is such an amazing brand, amazing quality for an amazing price!




It cost £4.99 for each product, that's just under £10 for and amazing colour! Can't get any better than that!

I'm traveling to London right now with the boyfriend! I will be taking alot of photos and possibly a vlog so keep an eye out for that! (:
Happy train photo!

Notice anything different on the blog today? That's right! I've updated it a little bit! It's been the same for around 3 years now so felt like it needed a little change! It hasn't changed too much though! 

In the next few weeks I have some reviews to post of products that I am loving! So keep coming back to the blog to check that out or you can follow me on my social networking sites (linked below) to keep up to date!

I'm also excited to announce that I'm going to university in September! I'll be studying illustration and I can't wait to start! I can't wait to be able to develop my skills and have better artwork in the near future! 

Thank you for your support and believing in my work and I hope you're all enjoying the hot weather!
