Flutter Them Lashes: L'Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara Review

With my birthday money I decided to treat myself to some new makeup, I really don't need anymore but when I heard L'Oreal had a new mascara out, I had to add it to my basket! My current favourite mascara is the So Couture Volume Million Lashes by L'Oreal so I had high hopes for their New Paradise Mascara, especially how I had read so many U.S reviews about this bad boyyyyyyyyyyy. Yes, yes they had it before us. Oh and apparently it's like one of the 'Too Faced' mascaras however I've never tried it before. I believe it has pinky package aswell? 

First impression, the packaging is just BEAUTIFUL, I mean who doesn't love a little bit of rose gold in their life? The colour is very eye catching and basically makes you want to buy it even more.

Let's talk about the brush, the brush has a number of bristles which I love! It allows you to get into them inner corners and it means you don't have to apply a number of coats, one can be enough. Want a little more volume (fake lashes) adding another coat would be PERFECT. This mascara stays on all day and leaves no flakiness or panda eyes. Panda eyes is a massive deal to me, as I wear glasses from time to time and their is nothing worse then taking your glasses off through the day to find out you've had panda eyes all day and no one told you about it.

 This mascara makes my eyes feel bigger and my eyelashes look thick, full, flutteryyy and DREAMY! This mascara has really won me over and at £9.99 you literally can't go wrong. At the moment Boots have 3 for 2, why not get 3? I will attach the link HERE. Plus you have to change your mascara every 4/6 months so any excuse to place an online order right?

Two Coats - Going Out Look 

Let me know if you buy it or if you're a no.1 fan like me.

Lots of love

Friendship. I thought I would write a post today about this topic, it's sometimes that is very important to me and because of the events in the last few months it has made me apprentice my friends that little bit more (if that's even possible). 

I know friendships can change overtime, people can fall out, change, are busy, move away, people forget to check in or maybe people just grow apart. I get that..I really do, but I believe that only true friendships stick. 

I am lucky to have friends in my life that are like sisters I've never had and I thought I would tell you some of the reasons why:

Jokes: We have a million inside jokes that only we understand. I'm sure all friendships groups have them right? We also have them jokes about one another that is only acceptable to say in front of the group and literally to no-one OUTSIDE the group. UNCOOL behaviour. Laugh with us, not at us :) 

Busy Bees: We understand that everyone is busy or even on a different time zone. It's okay to text back tomorrow or in two days because life can get hectic sometimes. It doesn't mean we don't love each other any less and plus we have social media to sometimes spread a little heart to know we are still round.  

Group Texts: We have 1000000 group texts. Honestly I wonder why I've got no storage left. Birthday presents, engagements, home birds, gym huns, weekends away, hen do life etc. I literally never have my phone on loud because I'm not sure the person next to me would be able to cope. It might sound like I'm complaining but I honestly love it, there is always something going on with my friends and I wouldn't change it for the world. PLUS I do love to rename different iMessage/ Whats App groups, it brings me much enjoyment. 

Nights Out: No matter how long we haven't been on a night out together, nothing EVER changes. Someone is always late, falls over, hasn't got money for the taxi, we can't decided where to go first, everyone has their own favourite tuneeee and we give each other the eye over the dance floor to sayyyyy 'HUN LETS DO THIS', we know who's on the tequila/ sambuca vibe, TAKEAWAY at the end of the night is a MUST! Cheesy chips and curry sauce? (Maybe just a North East thing) Subway? Greggs? Nights out or nights in actually are the BEST! 

Gifts: No matter what celebration..we never forget. Group gifts are always GIVEN and always so thoughtful. 

Support: No matter what time, date, hour, I know if we've got a sad thought, an issue, a problem, we can count on each other. We know who to go to and what friend is going to give the best advice about the certain issue...Or even better we know when to ask if everything is okay. We know the signs. OR EVEN BETTER BETTER..turn up with treats e.g for me it's got to be onion rings, haribo, mcds or even take me shopping to cheer me up. 

Girly Christmas: We live in different parts of the country but every year without fail, we do Secret Santa (never a secret). We spent time catching up and making the BIGGEST/BESTEST roast EVER! Everyone brings or makes something to add to the table and everyone gets stuck in and ends up either in a food comma or gin comma..or BOTH!! 

Distance: A lot of us don't live in the North East/ Washington but distance isn't an issue. We know everything (well mostly everything) that is going on in each other's life. We all make the biggest effort to stay in touch. Like I said before times can get hectic but if we can stay in touch with a hun that is all the way in Dubai then I know these huns are here to stay. (Now two huns...WAAAHHHHH) 

Boyfriend: My boyfriend is their best friend to <3 

Finally, my friends are the best and I'm sure yours are too! We know each others secrets, flaws, heartbreaks, saddest times, miss yous, special days, family, positives, loves, next moves! I have many others friends, friends that I haven't known since school and they're just as special. Shout out to everyone that has came into my life and stayed :) 

If you haven't spoke to a friend for a while, maybe pick up the phone, send them a text, give them a call or even spread some love on one of many social media platforms that we have today. Sorry for been so deep on this FINEEEEEEEEEEEE Wednesday but sometimes it's just nice to share a little LOVE!

Make friends with those that make it hard to say goodbye. 

Lots of love
