So this is the final look for my halloween series. This is my favourite look i think out of them all. I love how simple, effective yet versatile it is. I love that you don't even even have to wear this for halloween, it could be for any occasion or event. I wanted to keep in with the halloween trend, by having the ombre lips. It didn't work aswell as i wanted it to, but i think its still quite effective. I am 100% going to be rocking this look on halloween, but with black lipstick instead of purple. I have left the video tutorial of it below and i hope you enjoy! X

Clowns are probably a very stereotypical halloween costume. I know that my sister has a great fear of them, so i wanted to do a look that wasn't super scary, but it was still effective. I love the way this came out and i do believe its really effective and almost sultry, i also love the ombre lips. Its simple yet effective and i think people can definitely tell what your aiming to be when you wear it. I will leave the video down below if you want to achieve this simple, yet effective look! Enjoy! X
Another simple halloween look i have done on my youtube channel. This was super easy and it nice if you don't want to go all out cray with face paint and what not on Halloween. It is also great if your allergic to face paints. I really like this look and think its super effective.
You can easily re-create this with different colours and products, but i love how it came out. I have left the video below if you want to find out how to create it! Enjoy! X

As Halloween approaches, this year i decided not go all blood and guts and just do more simple looks. I am not going as any of these for Halloween, but i just thought these were simple ideas which i have never seen before.
My first look was a brunette barbie look. I am not a fan of coloured eyeshadow and pink is certainly one i would stay clear of, but i thought that perhaps some people do like colour and pink. I actually love these look and the outcome of it. I think its really effective and is a typical barbie look in my eyes.
If you want to see how i created it, you can just watch the video below. Its super was and quick and can be used with some many others colours as its such a simple smokey eye. Enjoy!

Zoella is probably in my own opinion the most successful blogger in the UK and has a gigantic following so it was obvious that her products were going to do well. An inspiration for many and the reason many people have started blogs and youtube channels, Zoella is again in my opinion one of the most influential people out there for younger people aspiring to be youtubers when they grow up. So when i heard she was launching Zoella Beauty, i knew i had to buy some bits.
After hearing that the most successful british beauty youtuber and blogger was launching her own lime of pamper products, i knew i had to get my hands on some. I have been loving candles recently and this was the first one on my list. Lets Glow is a beautiful lightly fragranced candle that sends soft floral scents around the room. I think this was £6 and its probably the best £6 I've ever spent on a candle. I am probably the worst person to describe a scent, but if your in a superdrug, i urge you to go and give it a sniff because its unlike anything I've smelt before, but it weirdly leaves me wanting more. I also love the packaging, it is so cute and pretty and very pinterest, which of course I'm not objecting to. I really want to try the bath fizzers and pretty much all of the other products in Zoe's line. Its a very affordable brand with an excellent product from what i can tell so far.

I thought I would take pictures as it's quite possibly the most simplest sweet treat to make and one of the cheapest.
After you have got all the ingredients in a bowl minus the bicarbonate of soda, you need to make it into a paste. This isn't easy for those with a lack of upper body strength, I certainly struggled. Once you have done this, its simple. Put it in the pan for 3 minutes until its bubbling and looking like its burning on a high heat. We put ours on 250 degrees as this way its quicker and then you don't have to stand around for ages.
I hope you enjoyed this post. I loved making it and making the honeycomb of course. Let me know if you make it and I would love to see a picture if you do!

When you reach the grand age of 18, you can of course legally go out and get avsolutely hammered. Something we can all relate to if you over the age that is. I've never been a big fan of alcohol and the effects that come with it. After 1 bad experience, and it was horrific, it's been enough to put me off. I turned 18 in 2009 which feels like it was about 150 years ago and I was one of the last people in my friendship group to turn 18. A couple of days after one of my best friends birthday, I decided to drink a whole bottle of vodka. Starting at the time of 3pm, I was a goneun for sure. By the time I made it out to the end of college leavers do I can't remember a bloody thing. Not necessarily a bad thing, but when you try and pay your dad as you think he's the taxi driver and the bouncers, it's a little embarrassing. Safe to say I've never loved that one down.
Anyway, I don't really like drinking. In occasions I will get drunk and enjoy myself but I hate the way you feel the next day. The last time I got drunk which was in August, I decided that orange juice, champagne and vodka would be the most amazing drink ever. It clearly was as I drunk it all, my head the next day however was not a fan.
I've never been able to grasp the enjoyment of drinking and the fun you have along with it. If someone colan give me the reasons why it's great then fantastic but for me, it's not something I enjoy and don't think I ever will. I get a lot of criticism from mainly my family about how boring I am because I don't drink. I have the odd 1 or 2 but I want to remember my night and be able to look back and say "hey remember how funny that dancing we did was". I actually seem to have more fun when I'm sober because 1. You get to laugh at the drunk people 2. You can act drunk and dance like an idiot and 3. You won't feel horrific in the morning.
Anyway my point is no one should feel peer pressured into drinking and do what you want to do, not what others want. I get called boring and I know I'm not boring without sounding like a big headed ninny muggins, I go out and have fun and as long as you do just that, you shouldn't care what others think.
Anyway, i hope this post was helpful and that you enjoyed it! Thank you for reading! Z xx
