March Favourites

Hi everybody, today I have a very small favourites post for you. There isn't that much new stuff I've been loving in March, especially makeup wise. I'm actually having a bit of a shit makeup month which is annoying but I'll get on with it anyway!
I've said it a million times, my eyelashes are crap I hate them blah blah blah! Hence why I was really interested in trying this out. For a step that most people don't need in their makeup routine it was rather pricey at £20 but I really love it and I'm so glad I bought it. It makes my eyelashes seem so much longer and more fluttery and feathery but the formula is so light that it doesn't look thick or heavy on your lashes. Even though it's adding another product into my morning routine I actually think it's sped up my mascara application because it used to take me so long to put a million layers of mascara on. It is in no way necessary to the majority of people but for me it's a great little product to have.
My next favourite is one of the first clothing items I've featured on my blog in forreveerr. It got too cold to take photos outside (how do fashion bloggers do it?) and there's nowhere decent in my house to take nice photos. But I couldn't not feature these jeans. I can't stop wearing them (as you can tell by the creases and general mess these are in). I feel sad when I can't wear them because people might notice I've worn them 600 days in a row and wonder when I last washed them (I have washed them), they go with everything and I even find them to be flattering on my pear shaped body. Possibly because of the high waistedness? They've sadly already stretched a bit but I'll keep wearing them anyway and have even contemplated buying a second pair... obviously letting everyone know that they are, in fact, a different pair to the ones I've worn everyday for the last 2 weeks. 
My last favourite is this hand chain from Forever 21. I'm obsessed with hand chains at the moment and I think this one is really gorgeous. I love the delicate leaf design and the fact that it has an actual ring at the top makes it even more perfect. I can't stand the ones that just have a loop at the top because they just fall off my finger as soon as my hands are pointing downwards (with my hands by my sides or anything like that). It's silver so goes with all my rings and I just think it's something a bit different. 
I've also been loving a Hamsa Hand necklace I got in Primark but I forgot to take a picture of it. Oops! Anyway that's it for this month. Hopefully next month will be more fruitful in the makeup department. Thanks for stopping by, lots of love,

Molecule 01 By Escentric Molecules Review

Hi everyone! Today I decided to review my favourite (and only) perfume since I don't think a mention in a favourites post was enough. Like I said in that post I never had much of an interest in perfume until my sister developed a penchant for expensive fragrances and I eventually decided to jump on the band wagon and buy one for myself. The idea of this perfume is that it smells differently on everyone which I think is really interesting. One of the reasons I love this fragrance is because of how much I can smell it on myself. When I used to work at Superdrug I would douse myself in the tester perfumes but couldn't smell them two minutes later so the fact that I still get whiffs of this hours after putting it on is a huge bonus and really justifies the cost for me. I also love that other people can smell it too. One of my managers at work bought the full size version (£65) because she could smell it on me so much and loved the scent. Once she said she could tell I'd arrived at work because she could smell me. I've also been asked by shoppers what perfume I'm wearing. Yesterday I served a couple then two minutes later the woman rejoined the queue and told me her husband said I was wearing a lovely perfume and wanted to know what it was. That was the occasion that made me want to write this review because I never get compliments like that. Huzzah!! I love this perfume so so much and I know I will repurchase it when I run out. I have the 30ml version, I use it everyday and I'm not yet half way through the bottle. It's the perfect size for my handbag and the whole no lid thing is no big deal because the box it comes in is sturdy enough. 
If you're after a new perfume I would definitely recommend giving this one a try. Thanks for stopping by! Lots of love,

First Impressions: Maybelline Color Drama Lipstick in Keep It Classy

Hi everybody. I actually already did a review of this lipstick in the colour Berry Much a while ago and it's ended being one of my most popular posts so when I picked this shade up yesterday I decided to do a first impressions post since I never see anyone talking about this particular colour. I don't know why but I've literally not heard anyone mention this shade in blog posts or on youtube which is weird because I think it's such an interesting and unusual colour and unlike any other lipstick I own. It's really hard to explain . It's sort of a very pinky plum? That's the only way I can think to describe it. Part of me wants to call it a nude when it's not. But it is. D'ya feel? It's quite dark but not too scary or bold so I feel like most people could get away with a colour like this because it's quite subtle. In a not subtle way. Am I making any sense right now? If you've read my other review you'll know how much I already love the formula of these. They're matte without being drying and last for ages and I actually think I prefer how these look as the day goes along. I rate these so highly, I have four from the range now and they are some of my favourites among my lipstick collection and definitely one of my favourites from the drugstore.  Let me know if you've tried these in the comments below and hopefully see you again soon! Lots of love,
