Update 2017

Hey guys,

First off I would like to apologise for being unactive these past few months. The reason behind this is mostly down too me having to focus on school work but not only that, I started to feel like blogging was becoming a chore and I no longer looked forward to doing it which I think is wrong to continue doing so as the quality of my content would be nowhere near as good. However this year I am going to be starting up this blog again due to me not feeling down about it anymore. Once again I would like to say sorry for the lack of posts but there is definitely more on there way. Feel free to leave any suggestions down below on what you would like to see from me.

Talk soon,

My Everyday Makeup Routine // Larissa_xoxo


Hello everyone,

So today’s post is on my everyday makeup routine! 

I thought I would make a post on this as I have been using a couple of new products recently and absolutely adore them. Because of this they gradually made their way into my everyday makeup routine. This makeup look is quite light and dewy perfect for summer as well as creating a radiant glow.

Foundation


Collection illuminating touch Foundation~

This is one of my new finds which I have fell in love with. This foundation is super easy to apply and blend as well leaving the skin nice to touch. It brightens up your face as well as leaving it looking natural and healthy. As I am quite pale, it’s hard to find a foundation which matches that without leaving an orange pigment and this is without a doubt perfect for that and matches my skin tone perfectly. 

My colour: 2 Ivory
Eyeshadow


W7 In the Nude Palette ~

This palette is my holy grail. It’s a dupe for the naked 2 palette however it is just as good and at a much cheaper, affordable price. The eyeshadow palette as a wide range of soft colours, perfect for summer, as well as an incredible pigment and lasting power.

The look: 

I apply 1 all over the base of my lid following with 2 blended in the crease. Finally I apply 3 to my inner corner to brighten up my eyes with a soft glow.
Mascara


Rimmel London wonder’ful wake me up mascara ~

This mascara is phenomenal. It applies smoothly to the lashes, giving them a boost of moisture. The consistency is smooth and does not clump. The brush is a great design as it picks up each individual lash giving a voluminous, full finish.
Lips


Sleek Matte Me Lip cream (birthday suit) ~ 

For my lips I am loving sleeps matte me lip cream collection in particular the colour birthday suit as it gives a lovely matte finish without drying out the lips and having a gorgeous natural pink colour. I definitely think it brings the whole makeup look together.
That was my complete everyday makeup routine! I hope you liked it. You can obviously switch out some of the products and adapt it to how you prefer. You can leave me a comment recommending and other beauty product as I would love to try out some of them and see what all of you are using.

Easter make up

  
Hello everyone,

It’s been quite a while since my last post but I’ve got a great one for you today. It is my Easter makeup! You are probably thinking Larissa, Easter has been and gone. Yes I know, however I feel like that this look can be adapted into more of a casual look and maybe you have that late Easter party coming up. Who knows?

  1. For this look you will need a good foundation that doesn’t cake up or become oily. My go to foundation is the wake me up foundation by rimmel as it gives me just the right amount of coverage along with matching my skin type extremely well.
  2. Once the foundation is applied you may apply your go to concealer (mine is the collection 2000 concealer) and then set with a suitable powder. I would reccomend the rimmel stay matte powder as it holds your foundation in place all day.
  3. For the eyes I applied a baby blue across the whole lid with white around the inner corner to brighten up my eyes. Blending out from the blue into the crease I applied a deep violet to add some definition towards my eyes. To finish off I add some black winged liner with some waterproof mascara.
  4. On the lips I applied a natural pink colour in a lip pen form as it stays on my lips the longest covered with a pale pink gloss. 

And that’s about it. It an extremely easy, simple look that looks like you put a lot of effort towards it. I hope this gave you some ideas for a make up look and was helpful.

What’s in my schoolbag

  
Hello everyone,

Today’s post is a what’s in my schoolbag. I was unsure whether or not this would be an interesting post but I thought oh well might as well give it ago.

To start of I have a floral white back pack from super dry (the one in the picture above) and I absolutely adore it. It’s the perfect size to store all your necessities and books in as well as being the perfect size to carry around. So I would definitely reccomend that one.

1) I always carry a pack of gum on me and my favourite flavour at the moment is wriggley’s bubblegum.

2) my pencil case (quite an obvious one)

3) My hairbrush as you never know what sort of weather conditions you may have to face that day and when your hair needs a bit of a fix.

4) my planner as I tend to record all my homework and notes in there.

5) my keys to enter my house 🙂

6) my headphones to listen to music when I’m allowed throughout the day.

7) my memory stick for homework purposes.

8) My purse for money to buy food at lunch.

9) Deodrant for when I have Pe lessons.

10) Lipbalm as my lips have been getting quite dry throughout the day lately.

That’s about it apart from I may have the few odd books here and there from some classes. 

I hope you found that doe what interesting and as always if you have any questions just leave a comment.

we heart it

we heart it logo

Hello everyone, today’s post is all about we heart it!

I am extremely excited to share this with you guys as it has been one of those things which I have been obsessing over recently.

If you have never heard of we heart it, it is a visual social media site where you can post photos, like peoples photos, make collections, follow other people and so much more. The thing that I love most about it is, the way you can post pictures and people will like them. That makes you feel so happy, knowing that you have inspired someone enough to like your photo and add it to their collection for many others to see.

I have been using we heart it for around four days now and I am absoloutly head over heels for it. Beforehand I was obssessed with pinterest which is a pretty similar concept to we heart it. I still love pinterest and still use it however the thing that attracts me more to we heart it is mostly the layout and I feel as it is still quite new you are going to be getting the most updated pictures as well as people who are constantly posting and do not have a two year old account that they haven’t deactivated yet.

Being a teenager myself, I personally think it has the most up to date content for me as well as it having pictures of things that are on trend right now. And as I mentioned before, it has a beautiful layout and as there are so many active users, when you post a photo and people start to like it, it does make you feel good inside.

I posted a picture that was of a gorgeous dusty pink eye make-up look and I was outstounded to find out that it had gained 720+ likes the next morning! It made me feel great and kept me motivated to post more even if only one person likes it, it still makes you feel as though you are sharing things you like with the world and someone out there shares the same views as you.

At first I didn’t know quite how much i would be in love with this social platform but it amazed me and i dont think i will be leaving it anytime soon. I probably should have known I would adore it as I love, Pinterest, Instagram, etc, which are all visual, picture social- media sites.

So if you have not yet got yourself a we heart it account yet, I would highly reccomend going and getting one right now.

I apologise for the slightly rambly post, which probably contained the letter ‘I’ way to many times, but I hope it inspired you to try it out. If you would like to check what I have been posting on we heart it recently, my name is:

iPhone 6s ESR case review

  
Hello everyone,

Today’s post is on the good and trust ESR iPhone case review.

If you didn’t know, I recently received the iPhone 6s rose gold for my birthday, which I am extremely grateful for! The first thing to tackle with my new iPhone was to find a protective, yet stylish, phone case. I sat down for a few hours, searching the Internet when I finally found the perfect case. It was from the brand ESR which I had never heard of until now. So I thought I would give it a try, ordering it to get it by Christmas Eve. The specific case and design is like the one below:

  
If you like this particular case the link is below. 🙂

When the case arrived it was amazingly packaged! It came in their own branded box with information and guarantees, covered in bubble wrap and then covered in a secure cardboard box. I was astounded by the quality that the packaging came in which is better than just thrown into a plastic bag.

When I took it out of the packaging the case was not damaged or scratched.

The silicone of the case was flexible but strong which I think is great for protecting your phone. As a bonus they gave you a flap at the bottom of the case which you can insert into the charging dock to protect that which I particularly liked.

The overall product I was really happy with. I have had it on my phone for around 2 months and it has kept my phone protected and no signs of wear have occurred. 

I will definitely continue to carry on purchasing my cases from this brand. 

If you like my case design the link for it is below:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/ESR-Silicone-Cartoon-Pattern-Bubbles-Color-18/dp/B00ZBMH9YC

They do may other designs and cases for different models and I would definitely reccomend them!

Inspiration?!

  

Hello everyone, today’s post is going to be on inspiration. An unusual topic to cover however I think can be very beneficial. Because I don’t know about you but some mornings I wake up and think, i want to do more with my life. I want to get fit, get clearer skin, be more productive. And being honest that takes a lot of work to stick to it. However personally I’m going to try it out to the limit. Try and achieve my goals because you only get one life and I want to live it to the full and make it everything I want it to be. Of course everyday isn’t going to be sunshine and rainbows. We all get those days where we feel like an absolute pile of rubbish but we have got to keep pushing on and get through it.

So I’m sorry that was a bit of a ramble but I’m sure you can relate to some of those points in there and leave me a comment on your views on what “inspiration” means to you.

One more thing is I love inspirational and motivational quotes because for me I find them very effective so I have compiled a few for you guys to take a look at, if you would like, below. (Ps. Most of my faves are at the bottom ;). )
