Summer H&M haul

Hey guys!!
First of all I'm so so so sorry that I haven't pasted in forever!! I've been really busy as I've just moved house and there's loads of jobs that need doing around the house etc. Whenever I've tried to write a blog my mum or dad asks me to do a job!!
Anyways today's post is on a little H&M haul as I went there the other day and got some really nice clothes that I want to share with you.

  1. A cropped cami type style top with a floral pattern on. I love love love this top!! It's so nice and is really summery too! 
  2. Another top I bought was the same type of style but a greeny bluey colour with a zig zag type of pattern on. Again it's really nice and so summery as well! Both of these tips go really nicely with a pair of black shorts. You can also wear them with jeans so their great tops for all year round.
  3. I also bought a black and white jumpsuit for wearing on holiday but is also great if you get nice weather in England! This jumpsuit I think was quite cheap and is it sits really well on me and I also love this lots!
  4. Finally I bought this really nice patterned dress which is white with red and green patterns on it with a bit of dark blue too. It is great for evenings out in summer as it is again quite summery but still good for all year round. As I was saying it's great for evenings if you go out to eat on holiday. However my one issue with it is at the back it's a v shape so you could wear a bra with it. But it's tight fitting so it doesn't show anyway.
Sorry that this post is so short and not at all about my topic but I loved the items I purchased so I kinda had to do this post. Again sorry about not saying the price as I can't remember and they no longer have the tags on them. 
I hope you enjoyed reading the post and I'll try and post more often. Though mind you I'm away for 3 weeks soon so actually I won't write till when I get back. Sorryyyyyyy xx

Summer Party Playlist

For todays blog post I'm doing a Summer Party Playlist! Since music is a very important part of my life (and when I grow up if I'm not a fashion designer πŸ‘— I want to be artist 🎀) I thought it was only right to do a summer playlist and this way I can tell you some of my favourite songs. 😊 This is going to be quite a short post though because I have alot of homework to do. 😭😫 So for that I'm sorry but lets not start this post on a low note (no pun intended πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)
1. Lush Life - Zara Larsson
Zara Larsson is one of my favourite girl artists and out of all her songs I especially love 'Never Forget You' and obviously 'Lush Life'.
2. Light it Up - Major Lazer (ft Nyla and Fuse ODG
I really like this song and its perfect for a party so why not. I especially love the chorus, its so good! Now I'm not a massive fan of Major Lazer but I also really like the song 'Lean On.'
3. Can't stop the feeling - Justin Timberlake
This isn't my favourite song in the world but I think its a really good 'feel good' party song. πŸ’ƒ
4. This is What You Came For - Calvin Harris (ft Rihanna)
I really love this song because its really catchy and also really nice to dance too.
5. Work From Home - Fifth Harmony
OMG! You don't know how much I love this song! I'm a 100% harmonizer all the way. Always has been, always will be. And then I was checking my subscription feed I was so overly happy to find they had a new song, and I then got even happier when I heard it! 🎢
6. Tears - Clean Bandit (ft Louisa Johnson)
This isn't really a party song as such but I really, REALLY like this song. And Louisa Johnson voice is goals. πŸ‘Œ
Sorry for the short post, but I hope you've enjoyed it anyway. 😊 Please leave in the comments what you favourite summer party song is,
Hope you had a good weekend,

My 5 Top Birthday Party Ideas

Now I'm REALLY REALLY sorry for not uploading recently but I've been super busy with school and my new time table and subjects so that's why I haven't uploading in a long time. For the next couple of weeks my posts are probably going to be a bit off topic because I'm going to be doing summer posts!
E.g Summer Ice Lolly Recipe, How to through the best summer garden party. Etc. And I'm also going to do some birthday themed posts because my birthday is in July! 😊 I'm probably going to do a Girls Birthday Guide and a What I got for My Birthday. But anyway, that kind of ties up with todays theme of todays post, 'My Top 5 Birthday Party Ideas'. Basically these are a round up of my favourite party ideas. 😊
1. Sleepover
Even though I'm no allowed to go to sleepovers 😭😭, when I did go to one I highly enjoyed it and it was EXTREMELY fun! Things which every successful sleepover must have is a movie (or TV on in background if you can't settle down), snacks (sweets, popcorn Cadburys and J20), some outdoor fun (a mini assault course e.g running through a sprinkler pulling a very 'sexy' pose πŸ˜‚) a good game of truth or dare (a way to find out your friends deepest secrets or forcing them to do outrageous dares) and finally I awesome breakfast ( , waffles or pastries are my favourite 😊.)
2. Garden Party
This is a party which you'd invite lots of people out the into the gorgeous sunshine to really soak in the summer goodness. Personally for me I think decoration is key. Perfect pastel paper decorations, colour coordinated plates and cups and carefully placed blankets. I think you should do this at 3ish so that you can have a nice BBQ. This is when you can really question you DIY skills when you try to make really pretty decorations or starters or drinks. And finally an awesome summer playlist. ( I'm thinking of doing that next week so comment down below if you want to. 😊 )
3. House Party
This party is more suited for night time. Unlike the Garden party you'll invite lots of friends but have a good amount of space but with a house party you'll be more crammed up dancing showing you're "best" dance moves to the latest songs. For his party you don't need many decorations because its all dark and I think you clothes matter quite a lot. I would go to a house party in a simple but pretty LBD (skater or bodycon.)
4. Film Party
You can call this a film party but there are always those few people who just sit there chatting the whole time or taking so many selfies that you think the flashing of the light is going to make you go blind. I think there should always be popcorn and a pick 'n' mix, specifically foam bananas, teeth and bubblegum bottles because they are my FAVOURITE sweets... EVER!!!
5. Creams Party
I don't if this is only available in England but it's basically this dessert parlour. I really love going there because instead of it being all light it has a this cool nightclub vibe to it. I've only been there twice but am already in love with it. I think its nice to go there and then do some real damage to your debit card. πŸ˜‚
Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed todays post, Please comment down below which idea was your favourite or if you had any other birthday ideas, Always happy to talk,

Shopping Haul πŸ’—πŸ’—

So today i'm gonna do a little shopping haul, as I went shopping the other day and I thought I'd tell you what I got.

I went to bhs, as they were having a sale and I got some really nice clothes:
. I got a pink tank top that says 'I liked unicorns before they were cool' and it's just so cute, and perfect for summer.
.i got a white top that has a pink purple flowers on it, and it's all sequinned and it really comfortable.
.I got a white crochet komono, and it's perfect for just putting over your swimming costume in the summer, and it's also really pretty.
.I got these white shoes that are a bit like sandles, but they have a small heel, and on one of the straps they have all these jewls on.
.Amd finally for clothes I got these black slip on school shoes for next year, that have a bow on the front.

Cosmetics and beauty:
From boots I got:
.Black head clearing cleanser that is from the brand clean and clear, and it works really well.
.I got a moisturise from the same brand, that is also oil free, and it helps get rid of spots too.
.then I got some sensitive skin face wipes from boots essentials as a back up if my clue set runs out.
Then from super drug I got:
.Life is sweet Zoella beauty bag, and it's so cute, but I would say it's more of a coin purse, or a little bag for your phone or a few bits of make up.
.body fondant from Zoella beauty, which smells amazing and I can't wait to use.
.blissful miss full body spray from Zoella beauty, it was on a 3 for 2 deal so I got this, and it's smells so good, and the packaging is so cute.

I went to smiggle cause why not, and I got:
. A pencil case, which has multiple pockets and it's really good if you like to be organised (which I do) and it's purple with blue zips and different coloured love hearts on it.
.A rubber, that's packaging is like a lip stick, and it's scented and it smells amazing and looks adorable.

So now i'm gonna include what I got on Amazon the other day:
Joe and Caspar hit the road, which is such a good movie, and it came with a really cool poster that I have hung up on my door.
Caspar lee, which his autobiography by him and his mum, and I can't wait to read it.
The amazing book is not on fire by Dan and Phil which I also can't wait to read.
And finally I got generation next by oli white which I again can't wait to read.

So I hope you enjoyed my blog! I would also like to say that i'm not bragging, and I am really grateful for everything that I got, and it's just that I love reading these kind of blogs, so I thought it would be nice to make one. So yeah little disclaimer over.
I really hope you have had an amazing week, and I'll see you soon!

June Favourites

Okay i'm gonna start of by saying that I am so so so sorry that I haven't done a blog post, but like last month I have been really busy, but as exams are over and the summer is coming up i'm gonna try to do a lot more. It also means I doubt I will be on topic at all over the next couple of weeks as there is no school, so I won't have much to talk about πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Anyway on with my June favourites!!

1. Double crΓ©me body cream- zoella beauty
I got this for my birthday which was in June and I love it! The smell is amazing, the packaging is adorable, and you don't need a lot of it to moisturise your skin. ITS JUST AMAZING!!

2. Sweet inspirations fragranced body missed- Zoella beauty
Again another zoella product (there are quite a lot of these in this blog) and again another product I love. Like the body cream, the smell is amazing and the packaging is adorable, and the smell is long lasting, which is great for a night out.

3. Candy clutch beauty bag - Zoella beauty.
Another zoella product, as well as another amazing iteam. The bag is so cute, and it's perfect for so many different things, I find it best for nights out, as I don't own much make up, and the bag is a perfect size for different occasions, as it folds up and expands.

4. Strawberry hand cream - The body shop.
The smell of this hand cream is so nice, your hands feel so nice and smell nice too after you have used it, the packaging makes it quite easy to pack in your wash bag, make up bag, handbag, etc. and the packaging is quite nice too, but it's not as cute as the zoella products.

5. Twilight bath bomb- lush.
This bath bomb is amazing, it smells amazing, your skin feels so soft after using it, and you feel so relaxed after using it too, which is an added bonus.

6. Black head clearing cleanser- boots.
I, from this blog recommended this to me, and I am so glad she did. I don't have blackheads but it's perfect for spots, and it's also oil free. As well as this its from the number one clear skin brand clean & clear, so i know it will work.

7. Dual action moisturiser-boots.
This is from the same brand as number 6, and it makes your skin feel so soft, it's oil free, and it's also meant to get rid of spots too.

8. Sweet macaroon scented candle.
My friend Hannah got this for me, and I am so happy she did, it smells amazing and makes the room smell amazing too.

So I hope you have enjoyed my monthly favourites, I'll see you soon!!

Liebster Award Nomination

For Today's blogpost I'm doing Liebster Award Nomination. I don't exactly know what it is but I was nominated by Isabelle Elli (isabelleelli.blogspot.co.uk) you can go check out her version for more information. 😊
I'm actually really excited to do this, I think its a type of Q & A but I'm not sure. Basically somebody asks you 10 questions then you have to answer them, and then you nominate other people and ask them 10 questions. If thats wrong then I'm sorry. Anyway lets go!
1. What would happen in your dream day?
In my dream day I would go too a meet up with my favourite YouTubers become close friends with them. After that I would fly to New York and go shopping on Fifth Avenue with my besties.
2. Whats a hobby of yours which we may not know about?
I like to bake A LOT! In fact I LOVE to bake. Aside from playing my violin, reading watching YouTube, sketching and exercising, then it would be baking because I just love the sweet things. Also because I like doing it myself because I'm very particular about my hygiene.
3. What is your favourite book?
My favourite book is Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. I'm sure most of you would have heard of it but I'm saying it anyway. I really love this book and I totally recommend it to anyone. It's about a shopaholic, called Rebecca. I'm a shopaholic myself but, my mum has to stop me or I would be £10000 in debt. I don't want to say anything incase I spoil it, but you should just go read it. If you've already read it then tell me in the comments below. :)
4. Who is your favourite YouTuber?
I can't pick one because I love lots but my favourite three are probably Zoella, aka Zoe Sugg. She's an all around lifestyle blogger which I really like and just generally a nice person. Then its Tanya Burr. Her blog is mainly based on makeup and fashion. If I had to match myself up to one YouTuber I think it would be her because we both love fashion, makeup and baking. :) And Finally my favourite boy is ThatcherJoe, aka Joe Sugg. He just so naturally funny and I always enjoy every single one of his videos.
5. What drink would you get from a cafe?
Well I'm quite boring but it depends in what mood I'm in. If I'm feeling healthy then I would get a smoothie (preferably Mango, Orange and Pineapple.) But if I don't care then I would get a Hot Chocolate with marshmallows and whipped cream.
6. What are your tips for a new blogger?
Well I'm not really suited to ask this question but it would be to be patient. I remember when me and the rest of L.I.E.S were anxiously waiting for our first comment. But the best thing is when it happened. I felt SOOO happy. That lovely feeling which I can't describe, it was just overwhelming.
7. What's on the top of your bucket list?
Because I want to be a fashion designer something on the top of my bucket list would be to have Tanya Burr and Zoe Sugg to be style ambassadors of my brand. That would legit be a dream come true. Secondly I would want to have my own charity against child abuse. I just think its horrible and want to raise awareness so we can stop it.
8. Why did you start a blog?
We were just discussing something at lunch and thought of it then BOOM, it happened. Although as soon as I started reading blogs I wanted to make one anyway because the thought of it seemed really cool. And it is as well!
9. What makeup item do you use the most?
The makeup item I use the most is lipgloss, because thats the only thing my mum will let me use. But, if I had a choice then it would probably be Concealer or Mascara.
10. What would you tell your younger self?
I'm not even 15 yet so I'm still very young but I think what I would tell my younger self would be to not envy other people, because there are many people who would love to be in my position and that I should be grateful for what I have. I'm still working at it but, I'll get their someday.

For the Liebster Nomination Award I nominate:

I nominate you to do these questions:
What is your favourite book?
What is the place you want to travel the most?
What is your dream job?
Where is your dream place to live?
What do you like the best about blogging?
What career did you want when you were younger?
Who is your favourite girl YouTuber?
Who is your favourite boy YouTuber?
What is your favourite song?
What/Where is you dream holiday?

So, I hope you have enjoyed this blogpost, hope you've had a good week and will enjoy the week coming. :) Please comment saying how you celebrated or are celebrating Father's Day,

No7 Soft & Soothed Gentle Cleanser Review

For today's post I'm going to do a review. I've not done these before, but hopefully you'll enjoy it. Happy Reading. 😊
As said in the title this is a No7 Cleanser. It costs £8, but it also has a '3 for 2' deal.
I really like this cleanser because first off all it has pink packaging 😍 and secondly because its makes my skin slightly clearer πŸ‘. I can't say that this is the best cleanser that I've ever tried because this is the only one but I'd say its pretty good. πŸ‘Œ I use this everyday morning and night to cleanse my skin. It doesn't make a massive difference to my skin but after time I've notice that my skin has got clearer. It did reduce the redness of my spot that I recently had but it did take a while too go but, in all fairness I do often forget or can't be bothered to wash my face, (tut tut tut, slaps my hand) which doesn't help. I wouldn't say my skin is perfect but then I would say its terrible either. I have combination skin because my face is dry apart from my T-Zone. I think its suitable for all skin types as well. When applying this cleanser you're suppose to use cotton wool pads or cotton wool balls but I don't use them. That may effect the outcome but I don't think it does. I'd just like to throw in that its hypo-allergenic, (dunno what that means though, πŸ˜‚.) Anyway overall I think I'd give this product a 4/5. πŸ‘
I hope you have enjoyed this review. 😊 Please leave in the comments if you have any skincare or cleanser recommendations,
Talk to you next week,
