From Blogger to WordPress Back to Blogger

Hello lovelies, 

Hope you are all well and have had a lovely weekend. 

Over the last couple of weeks I have been looking into getting a more professional template for my blog from ETSY with WordPress you have to have a self hosting website which I was looking at doing but the company I looked into hosting with wanted a years cost upfront for self hosting which was quite expensive so I have decided to go back to blogger. 

Bloglovin will transfer all my lovely followers to my new blog which I have worked really hard on this week. I bought the new template from Blogaholic designs and then transferred all my posts from my WordPress blog to my blogger blog and I finally finished it about an hour ago. 

I am very happy with the end result so all I have to do now is ask bloglovin to transfer all you lovely people to my new blog. Thank you for your support it has meant so much to me . 

My new blog address is https://beautywithandrea36.blogspot.co.uk

Mini Primark Haul – Hair Accessories ❤️

Hello lovelies, 

Here are a few things I picked up while I was in primark today . 

It was my friends birthday and she has planned a girls night tonight and I want to try something a bit different with my hair so I decided to get these very pretty hair accessories. 

  I thought I would try a few things that I have not tried from Primark, I have tried the Brow Pencil before but the       colour I got was too dark for me last time so I picked this brow pencil up in Light rather then Dark. I think these       are great value for money as they are only £1 and you get the pencil plus the little spoolie on the other end for           your eyebrows. 

I’ve heard quite a few beauty guru’s talk about Primark lip liners being really good but I didn’t really believe it

So when I saw this Red one I knew I had to try it out. I’m going out tonight for my friends birthday and when I go out I like to wear Red lipstick.  I have given this lip liner a little trial already as soon as I got it home I wanted to see if it was worth the hype. It’s a pretty good lip liner I have to admit and great value it was only £1.      

You can wear this lip liner by itself but you will need to use some lip balm to condition your lips first and that will give you a matte look. I actually tried this on with my favourite red of the moment which is my Revlon Colour Burst Lip Crayon. looks so nice. 

I had to try this eye shadow and concealer brush out I knew Primark did powder brushes but I didn’t think they did eyeshadow brushes. I think these are great value for money if they apply shadow well. I will use it tonight and if it works well then I’ll buy a few more. I could do with a few more eyeshadow brushes and buying Real Techniques ones can get costly so it would be nice to have some cheaper ones in my collection

All these products here were just £1

  I love these pretty little hair ties especially the gold and silver ones there so sparkly and feminine. I am wearing my hair partially up with a little down tonight so I thought I would wear this silver hair tie. I’ll ask someone to take photos so I can write a blog post tomorrow. (That is if I’m not too hung over LOL)  I will also be wearing this very gorgeous hair clip with the silver hair tie I think they will look really nice together.  I love this head band too perfect for summer I don’t think I’ll be wearing it tonight as I have a really cute diamante clip that I will be wearing and with the silver hair tie as well it will be too much but thought it would look nice in the summer when it’s a nice day to wear it. As soon as I wear it I will either do a little review on my blog on what my thoughts are or insert a pic on instagram. I’ll probably do both I take so many pictures and post them to Instagram I am so obsessed. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend 

What are your plans for the weekend? 

I would love to hear from you guys….

National Stationary Week 27th April – 3rd May💋

Hello Lovelies, 

I have wanted to do a blog post about National Stationary Week. I was supposed to do it last weekend but I had some terrible news and I’ve not been able to focus on writing ever since. 

One of my very good friends from high school past away which really shook me up as she was the same age as me. 

If you have been reading my blog you will know that I have recently gone back to college to study photography and I got some really cute stationary that has a lot of photography themed illustrations on them.  So I thought I would show you what I got….

Unfortunately as it’s been so long since I bought these items I no longer have my receipt but they wasn’t expensive at all. I got everything from Wilko. 

I only got them about 4 weeks ago so they should still have these items in stock if you wanted to take a look at your local Wilko

  So here we have a lovely A4 folder with a difference perfect for my photography course I thought as it has a huge camera     on the front and said selfie.

 If you are following me on Instagram or have even checked my sidebar out on my blog then You will know I am  obsessed with taking selfies but not in a look at me I’m vain way.

 I love the little notepad I have already started using it for college. The erasers are super cute too they spell out #OMG  Which if you know me and I text you I am forever saying that and also LOL.

The pencil case is gorgeous too and also handy as it has a little mirror so I can put lipgloss on or brush my hair on the bus if I am running late LOL.   These pens are really nice too I love pens like this that are brightly coloured, Bright colours always make you feel better.      They always make me think of summer.

The other thing was the A4 Notepad which I am saving until I start my other course In September I believe it’s Level 2             Photography.

At the moment I am doing the Introduction to Digital Photography but I always say it’s best to start at the bottom and work your way up then aim to high and struggle and have to drop out of the class.     Here is the notepad again it’s so lovely and has fun illustrations inside.   This is something that I didn’t get for college I got it for my blog I thought it would come in handy to write down ideas for blog posts.   This is what it looks like inside   I bought this for college but have not had the chance to use it yet because most of our work is done on camera we don’t       have any paperwork that I need to keep. I’m sure I will find some use for it. I love the illustrations again on this folder the       girls are so cute.   Here is a close up of the folder and the little Notebook I got for my blog and personalised it myself. 

Day trip to Bury Markets – New Make-Up From Mum

Hello Lovelies, 

A couple of weeks ago I went to Bury Markets.

My mum lives in sheltered accommodation for people over the age of 55 and every now and again I go on these trips that they organise to keep her company.  

I’d heard so many great things about Bury Markets people said that it was really cheap to shop there and had been meaning to go and check them out for awhile I lived In Manchester but never got around to it so I thought I’d go with my mum on this trip and keep her company….

It’s weird how in all the years that I lived in Manchester I didn’t go to Bury Markets as it’s just a tram away and I move back to Preston and then I go. 

Life sure is funny sometimes isn’t it?. 

It was a lovely day out we had a look around the markets my mum bought me some new make-up from one of the stands I could not believe how cheap it was

Here are the items my lovely mum bought for me 💕

  The whole reason I have delayed writing this post is I wanted to try this Look Flawless Fix BB. I was very sceptical when I got this because it was a mere £1.99.

I have done a little research though and since found out that it was sold on the high street for £9.99.

With summer Just around the corner I wanted to try something lighter on my skin then a full coverage foundation so when I saw this at that price (£1.99) I just had to try it.

I’ve tried some BB creams in the past and to be honest I didn’t really like them but this one feels different it’s very buildable without your skin looking cakey.

I found it does what it says it makes your skin look Flawless and fixes any Imperfections. It feels so light on the skin so it’s Ideal for the Warmer Months too. 

Here is what it says it does Clear enough to cover anything your face throws at you, but natural enough to let your skin shine and I would actually agree with that….

I got the colour in Shade 1 and this is a perfect match for me as I am so fair.

I think there were only 3 shades Fair shade 1, Medium shade 2 and dark shade 3

In summary I have used this most days since I got it 3 weeks ago and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to try a lighter coverage foundation I don’t think you will be disappointed. 

Another Perk to this Look Flawless Fix BB Cream is it has 40ml Rather then the average 30ml so it will last that little bit longer. 

 These Shining Star compacts by the brand Famous are so cute with the Leopard Print Compacts  My favourite has to be the shimmer brick. 

I wanted to get a really good Shimmer Brick Compact for awhile now Bobbi Brown do a really nice one but there quite expensive.

Here is the link for the Bobbi Brown One I have seen and it looks so Similar to the Famous one that my mum bought for me 

http://www.bobbibrown.co.uk/product/14022/7612/Makeup/Face-and-Cheek/Shimmer-Brick/Shimmer-Brick-Compact–Rose

I was really pleased when I saw this Shimmer brick as the you get a really nice hilighter in the photo the lightest colour looks really Pink Rather then a really nice Pearly Hi-light. 

 you can either swirl your Blush Brush in the rest of the shimmer brick or use the colours that are in the shimmer brick individually. It’s definitely going to be worn a lot over the summer as it will give me a nice glow.

This is called Shining Star shimmer brick in the colour Mariah Shimmer it’s by the brand Famous and you get 7.5g of Product. 

It says be a radiant star by applying to cheek bones or a light dusting all over. 

This is another product I have been using a lot I’ve been using it with the Look Flawless Fix BB Cream I just love the way it makes my skin looks it just glows when I wear this and the flawless fix.

 

  This Packaging for this Compact Is Simply Stunning I actually prefer the Packaging On this Blusher to the Packaging on the shimmer brick. 

There both nice but the Packaging for the First Date Blush is a little bit nicer. ( I know cute name too right. ) Anyone that knows me well knows that I love the colour Pink this is why I am drawn to this Packaging more this compact looks Red I know. 

The packaging is a lovely Fuscia Pink with grey leopard print On the front. I didn’t realise it at the time because they had no Testers open for this Blusher how Pink it would be. I should have realised with it being in a Fuscia coloured compact. A little of this blusher definitely goes a long way so you do need to use it Sparingly.

The first time I used it I put way too much on. I’ve only used it once or twice so I can’t really give a full review on it just yet but watch this space… 

So this lovely blusher has been named a first date blusher

I guess so you will make an impression just be sure not to go over the top with it as it’s SUPER PIGMENTED…..

The colour of the blush is in Charlize.

It says get that sexy demour first date blush. 

    Look how pigmented this first date blush is in Charlise it looks very red on this photo I can assure you it’s not It’s just very pink. It’s a lovely colour for the summer and if you want to dress to impress then this is the blusher to wear 

  The Mascara in this photo photo was such a good buy I love NYC and I had never heard of this particular Mascara before it was only £1 at that price I just had to buy it and see if it did what it actually says and I was actually AMAZED at the RESULTS. My Eye Lashes looked Longer and the Mascara Did indeed Curl my Lashes. I’ve not stopped using it since I got it 

I love the brush on this mascara too and the colour not only is it Black it’s Carbon Black 846.

If your looking for a budget mascara that will give you both volume and curl your lashes this might be the one I’m not sure if Superdrug sells this anymore if not I’m sure ebay will. 

I saw this lip gloss and I just had to get it I’m loving my Reds even more then my Nude colours at the moment. My sister says that I suit Nude coloured lips Better then I do Red Lips. I disagree what is the point of being a Wallflower. If I have learnt anything this last year is that LIFE is just TOO SHORT. If I want to wear Red Lipstick Then I will go ahead and wear Red. That’s the little REBEL in me coming out… 

I saw these lipsticks in Boots awhile back and kept meaning to see if they were any good for whatever reason I never got around to picking any of them up and then I saw that they had a couple in this colour on the Market. This was the dearest item I got I think it was around £3.50 but so worth it as the colour is gorgeous and you would not get them as cheap as that on the highstreet. 

I’m not sure what L’oreal  called these lipsticks all I know is that they are made by L’oreal and the colour of the Lip gloss is 301 Rouge Soprano. It has a lovely sponge dough foot applicator that feels really nice and soft when you are applying this lip gloss to your lips. 

It’s not a Lip gloss you can wear every day but if you want to feel Extra Special And Glamorous this is a good Lip Gloss to have in your Make -Up Drawer. 

I have been wearing this colour a lot with the Flawless Fix BB Cream and Shimmer Brick It’s a Stunning Colour. I was a little bit Disappointed though a few days after I had been wearing it I was looking at it to see if I could find the name of the Lip gloss and it had a little bit of Cellophane That said Tester On it I was not a Happy Bunny…. No one had used it though only me and it’s great value for money so I can’t complain. 

 Last but certainly not least is the W7 Chunky Cheeks Blush Stick I’m really loving W7 make-up at the moment it’s great if your on a budget like I am. I have only used this Chunky Cheeks Blush Stick twice but I really do like it. The Colour Is Stunning a really nice girly pink. Perfect For Summer. 

The Colour of this w7 Chunky Cheeks blush stick is Tokyo.

If you have read all of this post thank you so much for that I get carried away when talking about make-up 

Hope you are all okay and that you had a wonderful weekend be nice to hear if you have bought any bargains . It’s so nice to hear from you…. 

I’d like to thank my lovely Mum for buying me this lovely Make-Up she spoils me rotten
