I don't have a reason for this post, I just thought I'd like to share what music I listen to and love.
Now, I've probably got the one of the strangest music tastes in the world, if I had to choose my favourite genre, I'd say rock, but I literally love a little bit of everything! 
My top 10 favourites artists/bands include:
Aerosmith, John Mayer, Jessie J, Gabrielle Aplin, Katy Perry, Nirvana, Deaf Havana, Metallica, Calvin Harris and Bruno Mars!

I've seen many artists in concert before and I'm definitely happiest when I'm at a concert, there's just something about being wedged in between sweaty people and screaming lyrics until your voice is gone that is just truly magical. Most concerts I've been to were pop concerts, mainly because my friends are only really into that kind of music so I find it hard to get someone to a rock concert with me. 
Artists I've seen before include: One Direction, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Jessie J x2, Justin Bieber (cringe), McFly x2, Calvin Harris, Little Mix, All Time Low etc. 
Some of my favourite photos I've taken

However this year I plan on seeing: McBusted, Deaf Havana, All Time Low (again yes), 5 Seconds of Summer, Katy Perry (yep, again) and the biggest one of all being AEROSMITH *screams* along with Alter Bridge, Steel Panther and some amazing other artists at Download Festival! 
Since this festival is taking place in Derby, which is rather far away from me, it will be pricey and my friend isn't certain she is going to get time of work this is just a maybe, for now. I'm a massive Aerosmith fan and have obsessed over them for years now and I'm just so excited that they're going to be playing in the UK, I'm just hoping that this plan goes forward and I do actually get to go!

Sorry I just had to share this photo because Katy Perry & Steven Tyler ♥♥♥

Anyway, if you're interested in what I listen to on a daily basis, follow me on Spotify!

Leave me comments!
I'd love to know who you've seen live, who you're going to see live or simply just who you love listening to!

FOTD + Mini Haul: Illamasqua, L'oreal and more...

So today was my Dad's birthday, so to celebrate me, my Mam & my Dad (of course) went to a lovely local Chinese restaurant which was nice just every course I had contained tofu so I got a bit sick of it by the end!
I decided to keep my make up nice and natural, as it was just a casual lunch
Primer:  Benefit Porefessional
Foundation: Bourjois Healthy Mix
Concealer: Collection Lasting Perfection
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte
Blusher: Illamasqua Powder Blush in 'Hussy'
Contour & Highlight: Sleek Face Contour Kit
Eyebrows: Seventeen 'Brow's That!' Brow Kit
Eyeshadow: Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette 'Nooner' 'Burnout' and 'Dust'
Eyeliner: Naked 3 'Factory' as soft line on the lid & Rimmel Scandaleyes Penicl in 005 Nude on my waterline
Mascara: Benefit They're Real on bottom lashes & Rimmel Retro Glam on top lashes
Lips: Revlon Lip Butter in 001 Pink Truffle 

Now to my mini haul...
My Illamasqua order arrived this morning! I was so excited as I hadn't tried any of their products before! I ordered the Powder Blush in Hussy and Concealer in CC105 as these were both in the sale and only cost me around £10, such a bargain!

 The formula of this concealer is really lovely, it's really creamy and smooth, it goes on so well, also it smells like milkybar which is just delightful! This shade is basically white with pink undertones, the reason I bought this is I thought it would be a really nice to use as a highlight and to brighten up the dark circles under my eyes, which it does, it's such a nice product and I'd definitely recommend it!

 OK this is now my new favourite blusher, the formula is beautiful, it's not too powdery it glides onto your cheeks really nicely, the colour is what I love most, it is totally matte and has no shimmer at all, but it really is the perfect blush shade for me, it is really natural and just adds such a nice pop of colour to your cheeks, it is such a must have and recommend it to everyone as I think it would suit most skin tones!

So after our lovely meal, me and my Mam went to Tesco to grab some groceries, but typically, I had to go down the beauty isle too, I notice that this 'Miss Manga' mascara by L'oreal was on offer for only £5.99 (£5.40 using my Dad's privilege card) so I thought it'd be rude not to try it for this price! First of all, I love the packaging, it's nice, girly and almost looks expensive, but what I like most is the unusual brush, the brush is really quite thin making it ideal for bottom lashes but also it really grabs onto your top lashes making them look so long! Definitely recommend!

I also picked up these in Tesco as I needed them desperately! I'd just thrown out my old sharpeners as they were rather disgusting and I thought this one looked practical with the plastic cover and it was only £2.10 so I threw it into the basket! As for the Clean & Clear Deep Cleansing Lotion, I used to use this everyday but as my skin got better I felt I didn't need it, however my skin has gotten so oily and gross lately I needed it back in my life, this was only £2 and it is totally worth every penny, it instantly mattifies, clears out your pores and leaves your skin feel refreshed!

I love Sunday...

I know many people hate Sundays as they normally consist of waking up hungover and some people find the day really boring or even stressful in some cases, as people are trying to get last minute homework or chores done! 

Even though that has been me on many occasions, I still love Sunday, I just think it's the one day I truly have a good lie-in and just relax.

Almost every Sunday me & my family go round to my Nanna & Grandar's house for our Sunday Dinner and just a general catch up and visit, so that's what I mainly love really.

So today, I did exactly that! I'm a very lazy person and I enjoy lounging around so that is what I did.
When I get home from my Nanna & Grandar's, typically, I put on my pyjamas and snuggle into bed and listen to music or watch TV, sometimes I'll tidy my room or do something productive but that's rare to be honest...

This is a link to my Sunday playlist on Spotify, so if you're a Spotify user go give it a listen, you might even like it!

Hope you're enjoying your Sunday!

My First Post... Hello!

Since this is my first post it probably should contain a bunch of interesting facts and big introduction, but I don't think I'm that interesting therefore I have no idea on what to write about myself.

Bare with me though! I am new! I am just learning how to use this and I'm figuring out what to include, give me a month at least and I'll be better, promise!

I intend on updating the world with posts about my life antics and beauty mainly also with a mixture of  fashion, food and ramblings thrown in there, we'll  see!

thought I'd share some photo's to give you an idea on what's going to come...
(however I promise I will take better quality pictures for posts)
