At the start of the year, I purchased a 'W7 In the Buff Natural Nudes Eye Shadow Palette' and I also did a blog post about it which you can check out if you would like to - w7 palette (cheeky little promo there). Most of you probably know that this is a dupe of the 'Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette' and those Urban Decay palettes are pretty expensive. Because I couldn't afford one, I decided to buy the w7 palette instead. 

Last month, I had some money for my birthday and my parents and I took a trip to Telford where there just so happens to be a Debenhams. As soon as I got into the shop, I rushed over to the Urban Decay section and basically stared at the palettes, deciding if I wanted to spend £38 of my birthday money on eye shadow. It didn't take long for me to decide that I did in fact want to spend £38 of my birthday money on eye shadow. After taking a while to choose which palette I wanted, I finally decided on the Naked 2 palette as I preferred those colours. My mom was with me as I paid for the palette and I literally thought she was going to kill me on the spot because of the price. She didn't (and still doesn't) understand why I would pay that much just for some eye shadow. But it's not just eye shadow, oh no. It's literally make-ups version of Luke Hemmings. 

If someone was to ask me what my favourite beauty product, I would definitely say this palette. I am in love with it. It is hands down the best eye shadow I have ever used. I know it's a little bit pricey but it is so worth the price. Plus you get a brilliant brush with it which I have noticed makes putting on eye shadow so much easier. It's not just the eye shadow I love, I'm also in love with the packaging (it just looks so pretty omfg). 

If I was to go with a normal every day look with this palette, I would chose the colour 'tease' as a bit of a base and then top it with the colour 'snakebite'. These colours are simple but are enough to give my eyes a natural effect without looking too plain. Sometimes I might add the colour 'busted' in the crease to give it more of a smokey effect. If I was to go on a night out or if I was dressing up for something then I would usually go for the same colours but add the colour 'blackout'. Just adding this one colour can make my whole face look a bit more older and it makes me eyes stand out a bit more too.   

I'm not too adventurous when it comes to eye shadow as I am still learning how to apply it without looking like a mess. When I become a bit more confident with eye shadow then I will definitely try out more colours and more ways of doing it. (Plus it does help that I had weird eyelids...I can't even wear eyeliner because they are that weird). 

If you have the money and are debating whether to buy one of the palettes then I would definitely recommend that you buy it. I understand that it's pricey but the quality is amazing and you also get a decent brush with it. I'm hoping to try out the other palettes (when I win the lottery obvs). 

Has anybody tried any of the palettes? If so, which one and what's your opinion? :) x

On Friday 8th May 2015, I got the chance to see The Vamps for the fourth time and once again, they were amazing. I feel like a proud mother as I remember watching their cover videos before even Connor joined that band (it's weird now thinking about when he wasn't in the band) and now I got to see them on their second tour.

We were lucky enough to get really good seats so well done to Chloe for getting us such brilliant seats, you're a star ;)

Luke Friend came on the stage first and he sang 'Hole In My Heart' and a cover of 'Fix You'. I would have love for him to have done more songs but he was brilliant anyway and I'm still in love with his voice. The Tide came on after and they were amazing as well and pretty cute if I must say so myself ;) I'm trying my best not to fall in love with them because I don't think I can cope with being in love with a new band, it would just be too much for me to handle but I would definitely listen to their music. After The Tide, Union J came on and they were also amazing. Every night during their set, they would sing an acapella song. For this show, they decided to sing JLS - Everybody In Love. Now most of you probably know that I am a HUGE fan of JLS so I literally cried when they sang it. It also brought back memories of when I used to see JLS in that same arena and the last song I ever heard JLS perform live was in fact 'Everybody In Love'.  Then Jaymi decided to make me even more emotional by say that JLS were an inspiration to them *cries*.

While waiting for The Vamps to come on, Chloe and I thought it was a fantastic idea to take chin pictures which caught the attention of a security guard who was judging us and also the woman next to me who was trying to get past us who couldn't help but laugh at us.

Soon enough, the boys came on and everyone went crazy. As it was the last show of the UK tour, things got a bit weird. The crew and support acts would come on the stage during a few songs in costumes. It was weird but I strangely enjoyed it. They also got their dad's to come on stage and they lip-synced What Makes You Beautiful which was hilarious (and Connor's dad nearly fell over which I shouldn't have laughed but I did...it turns out that the boys did as well so it's okay). As well as all the weird stuff that was happening on stage, there were also the none-weird bits. Tristan did a drum solo once again (as he did it on the last tour and it was just as amazing as last time). James sang Move My Way again and that's one of my favourite songs. They also performed 'Another World' which was beautiful as Brad played the piano and the crowd were singing along. Connor performed In Too Deep by Sum 41 which was brilliant as I love that song!

I could go on so much about the concert but lucky for you, I recorded some it ;) I filmed a 'Get Ready With Me' video and also added some clips from the concert into it so if you want to check it out then you can :)

The whole concert was beautiful and now I'm trying to get over my post concert blues *cries* I can't wait for their next tour ;) x

I was originally going to do my 'April Favourites' as a video but I tried filming it and failed, awkward. Plus I don't have that many favourites so I thought it would be better if I did it as a blog post :)

It's obviously now May and I can't believe how fast this year is going already *shocked face emoji*. So here are some of my favourites from April :)

Naked 2 Palette

I now finally own one of the 'Urban Decay' Naked palettes....YAY!! I am in love it with and every time I look at it, I smile (I know that sounds weird but I'm sure someone understands and feels the same way I do...right?). I was in Debenhams and I was stood by the 'Urban Decay' section for ages trying to pick one of the palettes. I finally picked the 'Naked 2' palette as I prefer these colours but I'm not going to lie, it was so difficult trying to pick between the 3 of them. I even got my mom to help me but we both decided on this one. My mom literally had no idea how much the palette cost until I actually paid for it and her reaction was hilarious. She does not understand why I would want to pay £38 for some eye shadow. I had to explain to her why it was worth it but she still doesn't understand...at least my eye make up now will look better than hers ;) But seriously, this palette is amazing and I am so in love it. I'm thinking about doing a review on it so I might save all the details and why I love it for that ;)

All Time Low - Future Hearts (album)

 I am in love with this album. I'm a big fan of All Time Low and after hearing 'Something's Gotta Give' when it first came out, I was so excited for this album. If you haven't listened to this album yet than I would really recommend that you do so as it is brilliant. I am in love with the songs 'Tidal Waves' and 'Bail Me Out' at the moment.

Denim Jacket

I don't know if it's because I'm really fussy with clothes or if there is genuinely not many good clothes this season but I struggled to find clothes that I really liked when I went shopping. When I was in New Look, I kept coming across this denim jacket but I had originally gone in there look for clothes for a night out so I just walked past it. I soon gave in and bought it being as I couldn't find what I was originally looking for anyway. Its getting to that time of year where it's too warm for big coats but not warm enough to wear no jacket so this denim jacket is perfect for this weather. It keeps me cool but also warm at the same time which is great.

Walkers Mix-Ups Cheese Flavour Crisps

If I could marry a packet of crisps, I would most likely marry these (and Cheetos Puffs because I'm a crisps whore). If you live in the UK and you haven't tried these yet then you really need to (unless you have a good reason not to) because these crisps are literally one of the most beautiful things on this planet (other than 5SOS obviously). They are so addictive though and it's really difficult to stop eating them. They are beautiful and I love them.

Aston Merrygold Twitter Follow

So I've been a HUGE fan of JLS since they first auditioned on The X Factor back in 2008. I went through a lot of crap just because I liked them. I got bullied by people from school because of it. I'm an Aston girl and I always got told things like 'he doesn't know you exist and he never will' and 'get over it'. Well well well, on the 24th April 2015 (which happened to be the 2 year anniversary of the boys announcing the split and was actually also 2 years since Aston created that twitter account as they only had a band account), I finally got a follow off Aston Merrygold on my personal twitter. I'm not even joking, I full on cried as I had been waiting for him to notice me for years and I honestly wasn't expecting him to follow me. So my middle finger goes up to the people who said he wouldn't notice me ;) I had to include this in my favourites because ASTON BLOODY MERRYGOLD FOLLOWED ME OMFG!!!

My 19th Birthday

On the 11th April 1996, a special person was born. 19 years later and that special person decided to vlog little bits of her birthday ;) (if you hadn't clicked on yet, that special person is me ;)) But seriously, it was my 19th birthday on the 11th and I still can't get over the fact that this is my last year of being a teenager (and the fact Luke Hemmings is still only 18 as he looks way older than me omfg) *shocked face emoji*. I'll admit though, birthdays get more boring when you get older. When people ask me how my day was, all I can answer with is "It was alright, it was just like a normal day" because that's how it felt. Plus the horses I betted for in The Grand National didn't win so that completely ruined my birthday ;) I decided to vlogs bits of my birthday so if you would like to check that out then feel free :) You will also see how my "best friend" (After what happened, she bloody deserves those quotation marks...yes Chloe, you deserve it) thought it was an hilarious idea to fill my card and present with a LOT of glitter.

So those are my April Favourites :) x
