Packing for a Weekend Away – Clothes

I was away this bank holiday for five days and this is how I pack for five days in a small carry on bag. On Wednesday there will be a full video on what makeup and cosmetics I take with me.


L’Oréal Cushion Foundation First Impressions and Roadtest

Gimmick or great? I wear it for a day to see which it is!

I will have a full review in the next couple of weeks when I have tired it out fully. Also I have used it again since with a little bit of colour matching foundation by The Body Shop and now the colour is much lighter it matches my skin tone really well.

Nail Art Tools from Poundland

So Poundland is a special place in an English girls heart. For my American viewers Poundland is like the Dollar store as the name implies. However they have branched out in to their own makeup and cosmetics and I was in need of nail art tools so I wanted to see if they did some tools.

I originally wanted just dotting tools but when the brushes are so cheep I thought I would just get a pack of dotting tools and brushes. All coming to £2 total.

The dotting tools are really good, the ball head is very smooth making them really easy to use. The marble effect is really pretty and it has a nice expensive feel to them. Which is amazing for only being a pound.

The brushes are quite good. They are a synthetic hair and apply the nail varnish really well. The very long thin brush isn’t too great however the others including the fan brush is really good quality. I also have had no hairs come out of the brush yet.

Another Poundland find! Yet more nail art tools!

TEAL Magazine Front Cover

So this is the front cover for TEAL magazine. This is a basic front cover for the magazine. So the country or place of the month will have the main image with the other features around the side.

Features list down the side are what I am planning to do.

I also still need people to fill out this quick survey about my magazine:

Thanks for all your support.
