Bourjois Rouge Edition Lip Colours

Hey-ho Peeps.

I mentioned this product in my Sleek Matte Me post, in that post I was unsure whether or not to buy the bourjois rouge edition as they were £8.99. I have to admit I couldn't resist and Superdrug had them on offer so I decided to pick the 2 had been particularly eyeing up.

I decided to pick up ole flamingo and nude-ist. Ole Flamingo is this beautiful bright pink it looks similar to the Sleek matte me Fanango Purple but is alot less blue toned, and Nude-ist is very much a your lips but better nude.Compared to the Matte me these are aot more balmy and are definatley more like lip glosses, but they do have a fair bit of staying power although I would say I prefer the wear of Sleeks lip cream.
Ole Flamingo

As I said their very balmy and dont seem to set as well on the lips as the Sleek ones but I've given them all a fair trail as with my Sleek post I've tried the same thing with these so you can see how they wear and over how long.

Hey-ho peeps

I love a bold lip wether it's a purple or a red I think a statement lip colour looks fab especially when your eyes are shielded behind glasses. I've previously struggled though when it comes to finding a lip product that lasts more than 5 minutes and doesn't transfer off as soon as I have a not so cheeky fag. 
I've seen a lot about the new bourjois rouge edition velvet liquid lipsticks but at £8 in store I wasn't too keen to run out and by any just incase they weren't up to the challenge of staying put on a coffe guzzling smoker so when I saw sleeks similar version of liquid matte me  lip colours I thought I'd give it a whirl and I'm really glad I did. 

I opted for this bright pinky purple shade called fandango purple, it applys really nicely and despite what I've read I find that it goes on really smoothly and evenly. I love the colour I think it's a really great bright shade for summer and boy does it last I'd say I can get a good 3/4 hours out of this product without having to reapply.

 It can transfer a little if I've licked my lips or if I have anything to drink but saying that I'm super impressed with this product and will definitely be getting some more of these I may even try the bourjois ones or the make-up revolution version to compare if they can last any longer but either way this has to be my favourite lip product by far.

My glasses arrived!

Hey peeps.
So in my last I was waiting my my new glasses to arrive and they have. I am so happy with them only the Phyllis glasses have arrived and I love them! They are awesome the lenses are perfect they match my prescription and I can see so clearly with them. I love the shape of them and I think they suit me and my face shape. I am so happy with them and they arrived really quickly in my opinion for an overseas sender.
So these are they are and I love them 
They are awesome! And the site I got them also offers 50% off your frames for your fist order so these were a real steal they were just $39 dollars to begin with so for $19.50 you can't go wrong and they are really good quality. The site is if your after a new pair of glasses id definitely recommend checking them out.  I'm glad I did.

New Speccies...

Hey-ho Peeps,

For the longest time I've wanted cat-eye glasses but not wanted to fork out the price tag that goes with them, recently while scrolling through the world wide webby thing I stumbled across a site called this is a glasses company based in the america. I was skeptical to order new glasses on line as i'm not 100% confident understanding the prescription there's far to many numbers for my liking but I couldn't resists the chance of a bargain and especially when it comes to glasses. So I thought I would take full advantage of the exchange rate and their 50% off your first order, Who wouldn't? add to this the fact that the frames I wanted were only $39 I really couldn't say no.


These are the frames I went for, they're very similar to a pair of costume glasses I've had for a while but they have no lenses in them so have just been lurking around, I've thought of getting lenses for them but have found that having lenses put in them to be a little pricey to say the least so when I saw these I jumped at the chance.

The website has a "try-on" feature so you can upload a photo to see how they would look on.
Photo: Thinking of getting these glasses what we think? Do they suit me? #glasses #cateye

So this is the try-on image of how they should look on I really like the shape of these and think they will compliment my face shape and I love the retro vibe of them.

I also picked a second pair to take full advantage of the 50% off offer and chose these ones which are very similar shape but are purple as I thought they would look good with my hair as I've been  dying it a deep purple colour recently.
Margie - Full Rim Cat Eye


These are very similar to the Phyllis glasses, but a different colour I like these which were just £29. I think they're cool and pretty funky and also I have hazel eyes and purple is meant to compliment my eyes, OK that wasn't really the reason I wanted these it was just I just thought they were cool and reminded me of Dame Edna, and for $29 who could refuse.
The delivery for these is estimated as 8-12 days costing just $9.95 which I don't think is too unreasonable for shipping from USA to the UK.
For both pairs plus lenses and delivery the total came to just £26.99 which you cant deny is a cracking bargain, all being well and they have the correct lenses and arrive in good time I will write a review on the
 glasses themselves but for now I cant wait for them to arrive to see what they actually look like on and if I can see through them as I said I'm not 100% sure I understand the prescriptions they give you at the opticians so hopefully i'll have gotten it right.
So until then.

Depression and anxiety: my story.

So for as long as I can remember I've been struggling with depression and anxiety, mainly social anxiety. It's incredibly hard to live with any form of mental illness and I have to say that it's an uphill struggle pretty much everyday, some days are better than others. I've been living with depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember even when I was little I was never really a happy kid I was bullied at school and didn't have a lot of friends outside of school and was very awkward socially, and I still am. Depression has been a huge struggle in my life and for a long time I never really understood or admitted I had a problem, I didn't really know how to deal with it. When I was ten my dad died and I feel like it was a major low in my life I felt like my world had ended and it hit me really hard I literally wanted the world to end I didn't know how to deal with it, it was like loosing my world as I knew it and I didn't want to carry on. It was a time when I felt incredibly fragile. It took me the longest time to get over such a huge loss. I found my comfort in food and slowly developed a problem using food as my crutch which has meant I've had major weight issues that I'm still battling through. At around 16-17 I went through a really bad stage and it was around this time I started self harming, I would cut my self to try and feel something anything I felt empty inside. This is also the point when is say my binge eating was a huge problem, I was comfort eating and it wasn't pretty I would eat fish fingers straight from the freezer, I would eat from the kitchen bin it was a very low point when I literally couldn't control what I was eating. it was around this time I went to counciling and saw a therapist. I don't think it really helped me that much as I knew why I felt the way I did but I didn't know how to cope with it. I was put on antidepressants and that worked for a while. I found a lot of comfort around that time in alcohol and was drinking and going out pretty much every night, I drank more to forget and to be free from the darkness inside me. Unfortunately there's no hiding from it slowly I started to spiral back in down in to depression, FAST! In 2010 I had a mental breakdown and couldn't handle my life and the world I was living in. I became a recluse and refused to leave the house and developed huge anxiety when I was out of the house I would say I felt a little agoraphobic and I didn't was to socialise. I would make excuses to not go out and not to see people, I'd say the only time I went out I would drink to try and make myself feel less uncomfortable. I've always been socially awkward as I mentioned at the beginning of this post and that's kinda made it hard for me in social situations I'm very  immature and childish. I've not had a lot of interaction with people out side my select group of friends so a lot of people don't understand me or know how to take me,I feel like when I'm around people I have to put on a show and be a bubbly face for people to like me. sometimes it's really hard to be the "Prew" people expect, I don't always know how to be the "Prew" I'm meant to be. 
I don't like social situations or places I hate going out and being in crowded or loud places and it gives me panic attacks, I have emotional breakdowns and freak out its a horrible experience, I'm still on anti depressants but I'd say they combat the depression but not really the anxiety side of things as much as I would like but I'm getting there, I still have yet to get my binge eating under control but at least I don't eat from bins and i don't eat frozen unless it's ice cream.
I'm not writing this post for sympathy but to try and shed some light on me as a person and what it's like dealing with depression and anxiety on a daily basis.
