Some Pictures From My Birthday

Some of you may have been aware that Sunday the 24th was my birthday, so I thought I would show a few pictures from the day of what I got up to ...

I woke up, put on a jumper and opened cards and presents from some people

We then set off for a two hour drive to Doncaster to meet with family for a meal

We arrived at my cousins house, got ready, and headed to the restaurant

I sat next to my nan :)

After dinner they brought out my Birthday cake

And then we had a big family photo :)

Now I posted a picture on Twitter of some blogpost ideas that I had but I would love a little bit of input before I start taking pictures and typing anything up. My Ideas were:
  • Birthday Dinner FOTD
  • My Birthday Presents
  • Halloween Costume
  • Things I bought with my Birthday money
  • Halloween FOTN
  • Presents from my Sisters holiday
I just want to hear how everyone feels about my posting my presents on my blog. I know there were some people at Christmas who didn't like it when others showed what they recieved but I actually really liked seeing what everyone got. If there isn't an interest then I don't mind ... Just let me know :) I will also be doing:
  • Rimmel Primer Review
  • InStyle Magazine Collection
  • Lots of NOTD posts

A New Obsession

Since about August, I have been really into wearing wedges. I just can't seem to go shopping without buying anew pair :) I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I simply cannot walk in heels :( These are the ones I have bought over the past few months:

Lace Up Peep Toe Wedges - Primark - £15.00
These are more of a day time wedge that look really nice with leggings or skinny jeans

Strappy Black Wedges - River Island - £30.00 in the sale
OMG! I love these so much. I've loved them since I first saw them, but I didn't want to pay £55 for a pair of shoes that I knew I wouldn't wear, so when they were in the sale I jumped at the chance to get them, especially since I am 18 tomorrow so I will be going out more. However, they are so ridiculously painful and seem to make me walk funny so I am sending them back :( If I had £30 to waste, I would keep them just to look at!

Platform Strappy Wedges - New Look - £25
These are so comfortable and I wore them to my friends birthday the other day and plan to wear them again for my birthday :) If you see these in New Look and you like them just try them on, they are really easy to walk in and are really comfy :)

Beige Buckle Up Wedges - Primark - £15
I think I have probably worm these the most as they kind of just feel like you are wearing flats and add a really nice edge to an outfit. Also,they are far cheaper than the ASOS ones I wanted for ages.

Beige Peep Toe Wedges - New Look - £25
WHY DID I TAKE THESE BACK? Seriously?!?! When I bought the black new look wedges I took these back. But ever since I did, I wish I hadn't but haven't had chance to go back to New Look to re-purchase them :( I hope they still have them new time I go shopping! They are also really comfortable, but add a more sleek look to an outfit rather than an edge one.

Do you have a favourite pair of wedges?

September Favourites

Sorry this is late, but better late than never right?

Rimmel Fix & Perfect Foundation Primer I just feel as though this primer makes my foundations look a lot nice throughout the day and because it is pink tones rather than clear it helps to even out skin tones

Mac Studio Fix Foundation My skin has been pretty bad recently so I've been using this as it is full coverage. I'm still convinced however that NW15 is far too orangey for my so when I run out i'll look into NC15 or maybe go to the pro store and see if an NW10 would be better suited to my skin

Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Foundation My friend told me I looked "glowing" when I wore this so I think it deserves a place in this months favourites

Illamasqua Eyeshadow in Jules This is my first ever matte eye shadow and I love it! Illamasqua shadows in general are just amazing and I got this is the ASOS sale so it only cost me £5. It's just a really neutral brown that is perfect for everyday wear

Benefit Eye Bright When I first got this I didn't really get it, but over the past few weeks I have had far too many late nights and early mornings so this has saved me :)

Loreal Extra-Volume Collagene Mascara I've always had a thing for this mascara. It's just really nice and the brush is nothing like any other I have used

Pre-Birthday Haul

It's been about a month since I last blogged, but i'm back now :) I think this school year is just going to mean there wont be as many blog post in general. The only reason I'm writing this one is because I have the day off because i'm ill :( But anyway, this is just a little haul of some things I picked up in Bradford and Leeds this weekend whilst me and two of my friends went to see Bradford Uni.

Multi-Buckle Wedges - £15.00 - Primark
I really wanted these in black but they didn't have my size so I settled for the camel/beige colour

Wedges - £25.00 - New Look
Easily my favourite purchase of the weekend. It's my 18th in 3 weeks so I've been looking for some going out shoes. I cant walk in heels very well so expect lots of Wedges in future hauls :)

Grey Drapey Burberry-esque Skirt - £34.99 - River Island
I've wanted this for sooo long and i think im going to wear it on my birthday :) My only problem is finding a top to go with it :S

Leaf Ring - £4.00 - Topshop
I really love rings at the minute and this one just stood out when I was shopping

Lady Gaga - The Fame Monster CD - £6.99 - HMV
Technically this came on the post this morning but I thought I would include it :)

Star Gazer Nail Polish in 504 - £2.50 - New Look
Because I really needed more nail polish :P
