Sheffield Back2School Party

I went to a Chinese Back2School party in Sheffield last week. I had so much fun! Just wanna share some photos with you guys!

Well me and my friends decided to dress up to the theme, as school geeks! =) We went to a chinese restaurant in Birmingham before my friend drove us up. It was pretty embarassing cause we looked so silly and everyone was just staring lol.

This is my boyf and me.

Elf products

About 3 weeks ago i placed an order with Elf. My package came like 4 days after i placed my order, which i think is really quick so was really happy with the service. I didn't buy a lot, just a few things really caught my eyes and as many of you properly know, has had many positive reviews. I brought the Studio small precision brush, Studio complexion brush, Studio powder brush, and the Studio warm bronzer.

Studio Warm Bronzer
As you guys may have read before, Nars Laguna is my favourite bronzer at the moment, so having this in mind, i did have quite high expectations about this. I do really like the colour of this bronzer, it gives quite a natural bronze, the only negative this i can say about this is that it's quite shimmery. I have used it a fair few times, but i still tend to go by the Nars Laguna on most days, but i think for £3.50, its definately worth buying. The colour is really pigmented so i have also tried this for eyeshadow and its so pretty.

Studio Powder Brush
I can't stress enough how good this brush is and it is definately worth buying! Not only is it only £3.50 but the quality is actually really good. The brush doesn't shed or bleed (I have read in some reviews they do but it hasnt for me) I use this everyday for my powder foundation and this is by far the best brush i've used. Its soo soft aswell! Love it!

Studio Complexion Brush
This is another really soft brush and it is only £3.50 too. I don't use this very often but when i do, I use mainly for light application of bronzers and blushes. I wouldn't say its a must have but its a nice brush to own.

Studio Small Precision Brush
I use this to apply color evenly for small targeted areas. It good to create thin lines on my eyes (eg. with black eyeshadow) I do like this brush, don't love it, not sure why, maybe cus it does get a little messy sometimes. But its really soft, does the job so its nice to use it.

This brush i don't own but i'm considering placing another Elf order soon and i really want it. Its the Elf blending brush. I really need a blending brush and i've read good reviews about it. I wana try it out cus if i end up not liking it i wana buy the mac 224 or 217 brush. But of course if this turns out great, i won't have to spend much for a brush cus the mac brushes are quite expensive.

Clinique and a little shopping.

Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel

I've been using this for about 2 months now. I have combination/oily skin and all the past moisturizers i've used have left me with really oily skin especially when i wake up. But this, is really good on my skin, it moisturizes it, yet it doesnt become really oily. Maybe because its a gel texture but i definately recommend this. I think its especially good for summer now coming up, because my skin becomes more oily.

Clinique superfit make up.
This is oil-free and long-lasting. I've been debating ages whether to buy this or the mac face and body foundation.. and i just couldnt resist when i went to the clinique counter the other day. I am in the colour beige. And it fits perfectly. I've worn this a couple of times so can't really review much but all i can say is so far so good! It has been long lasting and hasnt melt off.

Carvela Ambrosia

I finally found them in my size! Went to House of Fraser and KG today to look for these (theyr on sale atm from 120 pounds to 79 pounds!) and nowhere has my size (3). Thinking selfridges would be the most popular place where people went to for sales so not very hopeful, i still asked the sales lady if they had any size 3 left.. and she came out from the stock room with a pair! oh em geee! so happy! I have plenty of heels but these are my first pair of platforms, and im so excited to wear them! I have to buy some heel gripes though cus theyr a little loose still.. but yay :)

So i brought these hotpants from River Island. I've been wanting a pair of black hotpants for ages but obv winter being winter, I havn't seen any in any shops. Want to tone up my legs now lol. Love these!
