Disappointing Products

It's inevitable that sometimes we can spend extreme amounts of money on products that are very disappointing when we try them again at home. I'm the first to admit that I hate it when this happens - nobody likes wasting money, right? But I suppose if you don't try you'll never know. These are the products that I've tried, tested & have been disappointing!

The first product I'm quick to mention is the Maybelline Brow Drama. I express my hate for this in an up & coming YouTube video but I really really really dislike this product. The name confuses me - it gives no drama to the brows whatsoever and instead leaves them crispy and not nice. I was also disappointed by MAC's Creme D'Nude lipstick. This was my second ever lipstick from MAC and I've not been completely in love with it since I bought it. It's way too golden for my skin and makes me end up looking like I'm even paler and washed out!

I also didn't get along with NARS Laguna bronzer which was a surprising one for me. I'm very pale and have a hard time finding bronzers that don't look muddy, which is exactly what this one did. It takes a while to build up the colour so it's visible and then doesn't blend evenly. £25 is definitely not justifyable for me! Finally is the Philosophy Devine Satin-Finish Illuminating Powder. I got this after reading all of the 5* reviews on QVC and it was a massive disappointed when I got it home. This doesn't make the slightest difference to how my makeup looks and really doesn't do anything for me. Losing money sucks!

Meenie Updates

Can you believe that this little cheeky monkey is almost 8 months old?! It's crazy how time flies. I still remember when we first brought her home and she spent the whole day exploring the new house and getting used to where everything is. It's so enjoyable watching her grow into herself and looking back at how much she's developed. 

She's been so cheeky lately and even brought home five birds within a matter of days. She timed the first one very unluckily for me - hiding a half-eaten bird behind my bag whilst I was home alone, forcing me to run across to my neighbors' house and asking them to move it. Gross! 

Her new favourite trick is to wake my mum up at the crack of dawn to play outside - she loves it out there! I'm lucky in the fact that she knows she shouldn't wake me up at 5am to chase birds and attack flies. It wasn't until a few days ago that I realized how much she'd grown. I was convinced she'd only grown a few inches since we got her but she's huge now! I think she's always going to be a small cat as she's much smaller than the rest of her friends but she has grown indefinitely. She may be small but she isn't half feisty!

Everyday Makeup

I pretty much wear makeup on an everyday basis and these kinds of videos/blog posts always seem to go down well. On an everyday basis I like to keep my makeup natural looking yet still fresh and healthy. If you want to see what I wear on an almost everyday basis, have a look at the video! It would also mean a lot to me if you could subscribe to my YouTube channel whilst you're there! :)
