My week, my loves😘

hi guys! Today’s post is something new I’ll be doing and it’s called: my week, my loves . It’s basically every Sunday I tell you guys my weekly favourites and tell you why I love them! So let’s get into my weekly favourites! πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’šπŸ’™

No.1 – Victoria’s Secret Juiced Lip Gloss πŸ‘„πŸ’‹

  

This is my favourite lipgloss at the moment! I got it while I was in California and I fell in love with it! It smells amazing, not cakey or gooey on the lips, gives excellent but subtle colour and is very smooth to put on! I highly recommend getting this product as I feel it gives great quality and is a great addition to any makeup collection! 😘😘😘

No.2 – The Maze Runner πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ 

 This is my favourite book right now! It’s very exciting and has a great plot to it, I have only just started reading it but I love it and can’t put it down! I really recommend this to anyone who loves a good and exciting read and whoever loves the Divergent series or Hunger Games will love this too.  Ps I’ve seen the film which was awesome but book as usual is so much better. 

No.3 – Eos, Honey Suckle Honey Dew

  
This is an amazing lip balm!!! I use it everyday and it’s keeps my lips very smooth and moisturised! It also has a very nice smell to it and is very cheap to buy. πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

No.4 – Benefit They’re Real! Mascara (black)   

  
I got from my mum and I love it!!! It’s smudge proof, easy to clean off after a hard day (  with make up remover ) gives lots of length and volume and a good amount of colour on the lashes. After it runs out I’m definitely getting another one, it’s fantastic!!!

No.5 – Whip Nae Nae song 

   
I don’t know if you’ve heard this song but I’m obsessed with it!!! It’s so funny and me and my brother have great times dancing and singing to it! 

No.6 – Blonde Bombshell Shine spray 


I have been using this for quite a while and I have to say I’m very impressed with it even though technically it’s not really for my hair as I am a brunette !! My hair is already pretty shiny but this gives it that bit more! It also leaves the hair very smooth and smelling nice. I totally recommend this! Another sneaky steal from my Mum. Shhh don’t tell !!  πŸ™Š

No.7 – YouCam Makeup 

  

 

I have been using this all the time!! It’s a great way to show what you would look like with different styles or even if you want yourself to look nicer in a photo! πŸ˜‚ it is really awesome and a great app to use.

So as I say every Sunday I am going to do a weekly round up of my faves that week. Would love if u guys joined in and shared with me your loves this week, the song u can’t get out if your head, the book u r reading right now, your fave snack. Anything !!!  

Have a great week guys 

Bye

Tricking my family !!Β 

Hey guys!  Hope u r all having a wonderful Sunday whatever u r up to πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™

Today I decided to play a practical joke on my family. I was using this awesome free app called Modiface. 

 
 It is said to be the most intuitive one-stop photo makeover app. There is in-app purchases to upgrade to give u more options like make up, skin care anti ageing etc.

  
 At the moment I have been just messing about with the hair app. 

 
So I sent my Nana, Gran and Aunty Gillian a photo message apparently showing that i dyed my hair red!!!

 
In fact I hadn’t, I had just used the app!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚   Can u believe it, they totally fell for it. My Mum and I strung them along for ages, text messages flying back and forth, was very funny. Eventually we confessed. Sorry guys 😜😜😜

 
By the way, its me Ari behind the mask! I am still choosing to stay anonymous at the moment just until I am abit older. πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’š

Back to this awesome app, it is really  easy to use. U either take a photo or use one u already have and bam start manipulating the image.  

Its great because u can see what hair colour, style will/wont suit u or like me, trick your family. 

Enjoy !! 

Bye

POLYVORE❀️

hi guys! Today I’m going to be talking about this awesome fashion/beauty/home decor/art app that is now my favourite app. I’ve become abit obssessed with it !! πŸ’™β€οΈπŸ’šπŸ’œ

 
So what is it ?? 

  
Its official description is its a community powered social commerce site !!  In plain language it a global style community on a free app that helps you shop and style using the latest fashion trends.  

 It is a really fun app to use and u can create cool outfits, room decor styling etc.  

 Some of you might have already been using this for awhile, the app is used by millions of users worldwide so  what I am going to do is a step by step instruction post for those who havent.  

Step 1

Download the polyvore app 

  

Step 2 

The app 

When u go into the app it will look like this:  

 

You can create an account in a number of ways, by facebook, twitter or just a polyvore user account. If u dont want an account then just go onto create a set, will explain what this is in the next few sets. 

Step 3 

Create your profile

Go into the Me section and write your  profile. This bit of down to you. This is mine 

   
 

Step 4 

What the side bar icons mean.

 On the ipad the side bar is on the left hand side, on the smart phone, the bottom. 

  
  

Trends – current trends on the app. Ie most popular. 

For example: If a skater skirt was posted and 5,000 people liked it then according  to what you have been liking it might end up in your recommened Trends. 

Feed 

Just like facebook or pintrest this is your feed of other sets that people have been posting relating to people you are following or sets/ items u have liked. This enables u discover new people to follow and items to like or buy 

Create

So this is the bit where u get to create your own “sets”. So a set means a group of objects u have grouped together for ideas/ fashion statement/ outfits to buy.  Its like a mood board but not just for home decor but for fashion. 

So how do u do it 

Go into create and u will see add item, menu and publish. Firstly go into add item 

  
  U will see thumbnails descriptions eg fashion. Make sure u scroll down to see all the other options, its not just fashion. 

I am going to create a fashion set so I clicked into tops. U will then see hundreds of tops to choose from. 

So I see a top I like, I tap the picture and an enlarged picture wity drescriptions pops up on the side including where to buy it from. It also says add which I click on and this is then added to my empty screen 

You then go on in the same way to add  other items for your set 

Be creative, I like to add quotes, all accesories to my sets like watches, iphone cases, make up and hairstyles. 
  U can also add text and magazine articles. Its fab as it gives u lots of fonts to work with.   
Once you think are finish you press publish 

  You pick which category  u publish your set into. I am choosing beauty 

You then name the set. 

  You can share it on all social media platforms. Pintrest, facebook, instagram and even wordpress!! 

Shop 

Now what makes this app cooler is that u can shop directly through it. U just click on the item u wish to buy and it transfers you to the online shop. Be careful with this as u may be able to get tje items cheaper elsewhere but if u r ok with the prices there is no doubt its a cool and easy way to shop. 

  
Step 5 

The social aspect of this app 

With this app users are able to “❀️” your set, follow your account also comment and message. If your aim is to get loads of “followers” then it is recommended you like, comment and follow lots of peoples account. 

This is an example of someone I am following , can u see the black outline heart, that is what u click on to show u liked the set. 

  
In your profile page you can keep track of your followers, who u follow, sets, likes etc.  

 
Activity section 

This shows u goals u have achieved, basically the activity on your account 

  
Mailbox 

Where all your mail is, enables u to reply from there

I hope this gets u excited to use this really cool app or helps u use it better 

Bye Ari πŸ’™πŸ’œβ€οΈπŸ’š

EOS lipbalm sphere vs Softlips lipbalm cube

Hey guys! Today is going to be a wee bit different because I’m going to do a post on the well known Eos lip balm sphere vs the new lip balm cube from Soft lips. So I’m going to write the pros and cons to each of these products and you can decide which one is the best! 
So let’s start with the Eos lip balm sphere! 

As most of you will know for the last 2 weeks I have been in the sunny California in America and I have loved going shopping there! My favorite shop has to be Target as we don’t get over here in Scotland so I bought a lot of stuff you don’t get over here. One of those were Eos lip balms. 

I love them!! πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’šπŸ’™ 

Here are the pros of having an Eos lip balm πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

1. It’s organic! So you are helping your lips by keeping them smooth and well cared for! 

2. They are cheap! I only got mine for $2.99 in target. 

3. They are a good small size for traveling so you have more space! 

4. The packaging is so easy to grip on too and they come in really cute colors! 

5. The scents are AMAZING!! My favorite is HoneySuckle HoneyDew! 

6. They last for along time and when you finish yours you can either buy another one or make your own! 

So that’s some of pros and here’s the cons! 

1. If you have ones that have light colored packaging they can get dirty easily. 

2. Because they are all organic they can expire but usually they tend to expire 1 or 2 years after you get them. But you would have probably finished it by then! 

3. If you’re buying them online like on Amazon then its very easy to buy a fake one! But most of them are real ones so don’t worry πŸ˜‚

4. Sometimes if you don’t use them regularly then when you start to put them on its thick so it doesn’t feel very nice. TIP: when that happens to me i just rub it on my lips till its smooth again. 

That is all about the Eos lip balm sphere so now lets see the new lip balm sphere by Soft lips! 

Pros πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

1. It is small, alot smallr than EOS so very easy to carry in a bag and doesnt take up alot of space.

2. The packaging is clear so it doesnt get mucky easily.

3. It smells delicious!! I love the scent of pomegranete blueberry! Love thr combination of the scents. Delicious. 

4. The minute you put it on it moisturises your lips leaving them really soft and smooth, same as EOS. Not alor of difference between the 2 of them in that score. 

5. Like the eos they are really cheap to buy. 

6. They are great for natural make up looks, giving you moustier and a nice shine. 

Now for the Cons! πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

1. They can run out quickly. Because its small it doesnt have alot in it so it runs out quicker than the EOS.

2. The base is really thin so you have to watch out when appling it as you can drop it easily and it will ruin it.

3. After you finish it i dont know if you can make another like the EOS. 

4. It has alot less scents unlike the EOS which as im sure u know has a big line of different scents.

5. Its much more heavier than the EOS which is really light for the size that it is. But because softlips have used a heavier mateirials causing it to be like that. 

So that’s my pros and cons of thes awesome lipbalms hope you enjoyed this post, have a great rest of your day! BYE πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’šπŸ’™

A perfect manicureπŸ’…πŸΌπŸ’…πŸΌπŸ’…πŸΌ

hi! I love painting my nails…What girl doesn’t?!? And in this post I’m going to be showing you how to get a long lasting perfect manicure for every occasion! So here are the nail polishes that you need to create a perfect manicure. πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ’…πŸΌπŸ’…πŸΌπŸ’…πŸΌπŸ’…πŸΌ

1. A base coat to protect your natural nails. I’m using Eye Candy’s advanced gel wrap base coat. 

 
2. A solid colour. I’m using  this pink by Kelly Brook.  


3. A glitter polish to add a wee bit of sparkle. I am going to use this glitter top coat from Rimmel London. 

 
4. And the last nail polish you need is a top coat. I love this one from Eye Candy! Here it is.  

 
Grab your nail polishes and let’s get into the tutorial!!! πŸ’…πŸΌπŸ’…πŸΌπŸ’…πŸΌπŸ’…πŸΌ

Step 1. Start by applying your base coat to all your nails and let them dry 10 – 15 minutes. 

Step 2. After your nails have dried apply your solid colour until it is opaqe. Then let them dry. 

Step 3. Grab your glitter polish and paint your ring finger and leave it to dry. 

Step 4. Paint your topcoat on all your nails and then let it dry. 

Step 5. Add 1 more top coat to give more shine and so it will last longer. 

YOU’RE FINISHED!!! 

Here is what mine turned out likeπŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡ 

 
It looks just like you got your nails done at a salon! ❀ ❀

Decision decision ( you decide part 4)Β 

Hiya everyone  

Thanks again to everyone who voted and liked for yesterdays hairstyle. The super cute Fish tail pony braid was the fave,mine too! πŸ’šπŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’›

Silly me forgot to take a photo of my hairstyle.  Was rushing about so much this morning  . Sorry, But I am wearing it again tomorrow as liked it so much so I will  edit the post and add it in. 

In the meantime as requested here is a quick wee tutorial. 

 I love doing different hairstyles and I usually just perfect and practice by constantly watching you tube hair tutorial. I play it through once and than go back to the beginning and play than pause etc etc all the way through the steps. Then I practice on my Mum and my friends at school. I constantly braid hair. So here goes…

Fish tail 

Step one

Create a pony, high or low, to the side, you choose. For this style it was high at the top of my head 

Step two 

Divide the ponytail evenly into 2 sections. Eventhough this is a braid, it differs in that it has 2 instead of 3 sections 

Step 3 

Weaving 

Use your finger to take a small section of your hair from the outer edge near the hair tie and cross it over to the opposite side like u would in a normal pleat. Re grip your hair to keep it tight. You still hold two section still.repeat exactly with the other side. 

Step 4 

Keep on overlapping sections of hair from each side, all the way down to the ends 

To make sure its nice and even, make sure you use the same thickness of section from each side. 

  
Once u have reached the end, tie it off.  Now at this stage if u haven’t tied it too tight u can go back up the braid and pull it out at each side to thicken and flatten the braid and make it abit more messy. Even add some jewels in it or what I have for California is a gorgeous flower garland for my hair. I think it would look stunning with a messy side fish tail baid . 

  
I promise u, I will add my photos tomorrow to make the steps easier to follow 

So my last decision is what do I wear on the plane tomorrow? .  I have super cool bright peachy joggers but I would like u guys to decide what cute top  to wear 

#selfie

Vs 

Never be anyone other than you 

 

 
 Both are white t shirts, the “never be…” is a cropped one. I love them both. I will be wearing a cool cropped denim jacket to complete my traveling look. 

So for the last time .. You decide 
Bye
