Handbag Essentials

Hiya guys, Paige here. Today I am going to be sharing with you my handbag essentials that I normally have with me but being honest I don’t always remember to put them in my bag.

2017-04-15 04.06.48 2.jpg

The first thing I always have is pretty obvious and that is my purse which is a Jack Wills one and that is honestly the only thing I always remember. The next thing I pretty much always have is my Superdrug card as I get the vast majority of my makeup from Superdrug however I always forget it when I actually need it. The next thing I pretty much always have is my headphones for if I have to get the bus or something. I always try to take my hand gel because I try to be hygienic but I normally always forget to put it in my bag. The final thing I try to remember to take but pretty much never do is extra bobbles and bobby pins just in case it rains and messes up my hair or someone else needs one.

This is quite a short post but I hope you enjoyed it anyway. Please like, comment blog posts and follow my blog and instagram (mylifemadepretty). Thanks for reading.

Bye for now,

Mini Haul and First Impressions

Hiya guys, Paige here and today I am going to be giving a first impressions review on some new make-up products. I have only used these products a couple of times so I might do an updated review in the future once I have used them more.

The three products I got were a BB cream by GOSH, liquid highlighter by MUA and an eye shadow pencil by collection and I got all of these from Superdrug.

I got the BB cream by GOSH in the shade 01 Sand which is obviously the lightest colour. I don’t normally wear foundation but I really like this so far. It isn’t high coverage so if that’s what you want then this probably won’t work for you but the colour is really nice and actually is the right shade for my skin. It lasted really well through the day and the rest of my makeup sat well on top of it. This is also the first product I have used from GOSH and I am impressed by it so far.

The next thing I got was the illuminating liquid glow in the shade oyster by MUA. I have used quite a lot of products by MUA and already have a powder highlighter by them and I normally love them. I like this product however I made the mistake of putting too much on and ended up wiping of all the rest of the makeup under it. This only needs a tiny amount as it is really pigmented which I love but it is awkward to not put too much on. Also it is a really pretty colour.

The final thing I got was and eye shadow pencil by collection (it doesn’t say a colour but it was the darker one of the two). I got this as I hate putting eye shadow on as the glitter always ends up everywhere so I thought this would make it easier. There is no fall out however it is waterproof which at first I didn’t believe until I came to get it off. It said use a waterproof makeup remover so I have the simple eye makeup remover which says it removes waterproof mascara so I thought it would be fine. It got it off eventually but it was quite difficult. I still like this product as it is easy to apply and is a really pretty colour however it is as nightmare to remove.

Overall I am happy with everything I got. Thanks for reading. Please like, comment post requests and follow my instagram (mylifemadepretty).

Clothing Haul

Hiya guys, Paige here. So on Sunday I went shopping and so I thought that I should share what I bought with you as I love seeing clothing hauls. So let’s begin.

The shops where I bought all of the items from where H&M and Primark and I am obsessed with everything that I bought. The first thing I got was a cropped mauve ish coloured (doesn’t really look it in the picture) hoodie that has little rips in the sleeves and holes in the jumper. It is super cute and looks really good with jeans and leggings. I got this from primark and they also had it in like a bluey greeny colour too.

The next thing that I got was this dress that I don’t really know what style it is. It is sort of ribbed and like a jumper and is like a pencil dress I think. Anyway it is black with white around the neck and sleeve, it is also a really nice length and I can’t wait to wear it in summer with my superstars. I got this from H&M.

The next thing I got was a black cropped jumper that also has white round the neck and sleeve and also the bottom of it. It is a really nice fit and is longed sleeved which looks really cute and it was from H&M.

The next thing I got which was also from H&M is a pair of grey skinny jeans. These have a rip on the left knee however you can’t really tell in the picture. I can never normally find skinny jeans to fit me well so these ones are perfect.

The next thing I got was this super cute white t-shirt with black around the neck and sleeves that had four different lips on them which looks super cute. It is also super simple which I love and was also from H&M.

The final thing I got was a simple grey t-shirt that has two lightening bolts on it and GRL PWR written on it (girl power). This was also from H&M and is really cute.

So that’s my clothing haul, I hope you enjoyed reading this because I enjoyed writing this one. Thank you for all the support I got on my last post, I really appreciate it as I didn’t expect anything from my first post back.

Flourless Pancakes

Hiya guys, Paige here. So as you may have noticed I have completely emptied my blog and instagram and have decided to start again so that I am happier with my blog and should hopefully blog more. So today I am going to be sharing with you how to make flourless pancakes. This makes about two pancakes depending on the size of the pan and how thick you make them. So let’s begin.

Ingredients:

-3 tbs of porridge oats
-1 egg
-1/4 cup of milk
-1 tsp of cinnamon
-As much sugar as you want
-Any toppings

Start by putting 3 tbs of oats into a blender and blend them so that it looks like flour. Then add in 1 egg, 1/4 cup of milk, a tsp of cinnamon and a bit of sugar and then blend all of that together. Once it is all blended together to look like pancake mix pour about half into a frying pan that has oil in the bottom so that it won’t stick. Then leave that to cook like any normal pancake and then cook the other side. Once it is done add any toppings that you want, I added honey, banana, raisins and sliced almonds.

So that is how to make flourless pancakes, if you have any other post request please comment them on this post or on my instagram (@mylifemadepretty) and I will try to do them.
