Review: Benefits's They're real mascara.

I've been meaning to do this review for a while now, but I haven't quite round to it. But today I have the day off so I decided to faff around with flowers which is very production I know, but hopefully these pictures look pretty. I haven't done a close up on my eyes like reviews usually do because my eyeliner wasn't on fleek and I didn't want my poor skills to reflect badly on the amazing product. These things always seem to cheer me up; maybe because they are highest and are that bit more special or the fact that my eyes go from boring to Hello! 

I'll start with the mascara. This mascara is defently not a subtle products. It makes an impact by thickening and darkening lashes. (Trying not to quote the packaging) but I do love the statistics on the box as I much more likely to be convinced if they have statistics. Im a sucker for them. When used the mascara for the first time I expected the applicator to be big and thick like other volume mascaras but it was surprisingly average, but I think that just improves the application so you don't over load your lashes with clumps.
And it lasts all day but the only negative I have is when I tried to get it off I had to really rub my eyes which isn't ideal. It could have been my cleanser that wasn't up to it though.

The eyeliner. I was a little more interested in this product as I've never owned one that has that kind of applicator. I don't know how to describe it, so it's like a pen but at an angle is the best I can do. Again like the mascara it lasts all day and doesn't smudge when you rub your eyes!
I rubbed my eyes in a exam I had recently and spent the whole time trying avoid eye contact with the invigilator because I thought I'd smeared black all around my eyes, but in the end my eyes were still on point and i just probably looked very suspicious in the exam hall. Typical me.
However I would say that it takes some practice to get the hang of the different applicator, but once you get it right you will look amazing!

What products make your day?

Je ne sais pas ce que je pensais

Well I've done it. I've given in to a fashion trend. This is one of the last trends that I thought that I would go for. I mean I'm not 6ft and I'm not a beanpole in size. Why on earth would I go for short think trousers when my legs are already short and thick?! But I did it. I've decided that sometimes life is too short to care about what people think, so I went out and got these high waisted culottes from Primark. I think they were about £10 (don't quote me on that) which is a bargain.

I knew that I had to have high waisted ones otherwise my legs would look so short and they are short anyway, but I think that they don't look too bad. They have elastic around the waist which I appreciated after going for a scrumptious afternoon tea in a beautiful village in the Lincolnshire wolds. The whole tea shop is so vintage and cute which was wonderful as we were celebrating my Mum's birthday. So the culottes served me well in everyway. 

I've had this stripped top for a long time because you can't go wrong with a classic stripped t-shirt. Pairing the navy blue culottes with a stripped top made me feel a little Parisian so I couldn't resist a red lip which is very unusual for me. Everything in the outfit is from the marvellous Primark except for my trusty Accesserize bag. (I really need to control my navy blue addiction.) Well techniquely the shoes are not navy blue but dark blue in my defence and you may be able to see my faded Henna on my feet if you look carefully.

I would recommend trying some culottes even if you thought they weren't for you because I love wearing them now even though the thought scared me and my little short legs.  So if you want to wear something just go for it!! 
What things do you put off wearing? 


Crabtree and evelyn.

Hello, my name is Brigid and I have an addiction. My addiction is to the brand Crabtree and Evelyn. My Mum has always been a fan so products having been round our house all my life, but it is in the last couple of years that I've started paying attention to them and I'm so glad that I did. 

If you don't like smelly (as in good smells) products then these are not for you, but for those of you that can appreciate a lovely scent like rose (mmmmm...rose) then these are defiantly for you. I love the hand mousterisers as I can take them anywhere with me because of there practical size, but don't be decieved because just because they are not huge doesn't mean that they don't last forever. Okay forever is an exaggeration, but a little bit really does go a long way.  

The picture below showing a dot of it on my finger really is how much you need to spread across your hands which mousterisers them fully. I do have to warn you that you may look weird when you keep smelling your hands after applying one of the scents. Citron is a personal favourite of mine. I hope I've persuaded to at least look at the lovely Crabtee and Evelyn website
What do you like to carry around in your handbag?

"On Wednesdays we wear pink."

I'm sorry for that cheesy reference in the tittle, but I am a big fan of Mean girls. Last Wednesday my friends and I actually did wear something pink. That's when I found out that I don't own many pink items, probably because I grew out of the 'wear all pink' stage about 10 years ago. But now I think that pink shouldn't be seen as childish colour, but a colour a mature women can apsaloutly rock!

This wasn't meant to be a pink rant, but a spring favourites, so here I go; I have spoken about the amazing Benefit Roller Lash mascara before as it is wonderful however I haven't worn a lot of makeup in the winter months because my skin needs a rest with the cold weather which results in me getting dry skin. Yay. Not. But I have stuck to this trusty mascara, because it doesn't leave clumps, it stays on all day and I don't have to scrub my eyes red raw to get it off. 

The second thing that I've been wearing everyday is my personalised 'Brigid' necklace because it is so nice to something with my unusual name on. And I prefer silver to gold so that is a plus. On the end of my name there is a little star which I think is so cute. 

Bargain alert! These cool sunglasses are from Primark and were £1! I'm very bad with sunglasses because I either lose them or sit on them . Yes I'm an idiot, but I don't have to be too disappointed if either of those situations occur because I've only lost £1, but on the other hand I still want to lose them because I think the shape are funky and different with a retro vibe going on.

I haven't spoken about this Jimmy Choo perfume in a very long time, but It has continued to be a favourite so much so that I'm worried that I'll run out too quickly so I'm rationing it. I'm afraid I can't just go out and buy nice perfume any day of the week due to my budget, but I'm enjoying the nostalgic smell which reminds me of a bubble bath my mum had when I was little. It probably doesn't smell like that at all but that's what I think of when I put it on.

What are you favourites for spring?
