Mickey's not so scary halloween party in Florida review

I'm on my second week in Disney World Florida and on the Tuesday of the second week I went to the Mickeys not so scary Halloween party. It was amazing! You dress up as a character (I went as Snow White) and it starts from 7pm - 12am. You get a band and also a bag which you can collect your candy in on the candy trails, also they have a parade where you see the classic disney characters and the villans. Then we saw the fireworks in magic kingdom by the Disney Castle which were really good as you had halloween music in the background aswell! 
You also get to meet other characters which you may not get to meet when you go there on a normal day, I met Lotso from toy story 3, Jack Skellington & Sally and also the Seven dwarves! 
There are a few candy trails and people stand outside holding a sign and you walk through and there are people either side of you handing out a handful of sweets. 
We went on big thunder mountain and then made our way back to the hotel. I would definitely recommend people do the Halloween party as it is fun for all ages, you get to dress up, meet characters, watch the parade and fireworks and also get sweets. It's definitely great for little ones and also as a big family group!

Everyday makeup

I have not wrote a blog in a while so I thought I would write a new one, and make this one about my everyday makeup. First of all I use my concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes or redness which I don't like. I use the Collection lasting perfection number 1, which is the lightest one to get. I then blend it in with a small foundation brush till it all blends in to my complexion. Next I use my normal size foundation brush, pump a bit of my foundation onto my hand and begin to blend it onto my forehead and then around the rest of my face. The foundation make I use is maybeline simply because I think it gives a really good coverage and it does not feel thick on your face. This is optional but you can also put on a face powder I top of the foundation you have already put on, I sometimes do this but it just depends on you! Moving onto my eyebrows I use the eyebrow styler by sleek which I have only recently discovered but I'm already falling in love with it. This has two ends, one with the eyebrow pencil on it and the other end with a brush on it. Having the brush is really useful I use it before and after. I glide the pencil across my brow just up to the arch, I make sure I take notice of the shape and that I don't just do a straight line but when I get to the arch define the point and bring it down the the tail. I then use the brush just to make sure it is even and gets rid of any lines there may be on there.

 For my eyes I use a pale pink shimmery eyeshadow or you can also use a subtle nude or silver for this aswell, but I take a large eye brush and wipe it across my lid and just fan it out abit as I get to the end of my eye lid. I do this with both eyes and take my MUA liquid eyeliner and gentle glide it across the lid of my eye just where my eyelashes are. Depending on your personal preference you can add a flick, which do a lot but it is up to you. For the mascara I use two I use the rimmel London scandal eyes first and then I use the miss sporty curves mascara. These really compliment each other as the rimmel one is really bold and makes your lashes big, but the miss sporty one makes the curvy and can really make your eyes pop! I put a little bit of mascara on my bottom lashes but not too much, just enough. 
Sometimes I will use blusher and bronzer, but if it's just for everyday makeup I just use a blusher and the one I use is sleek Sahara. I use a blusher brush and slide it across the hollows of my cheeks and slightly at the top, then using a blending brush I blend it into the rest of my cheek slightly in a circular motion. Lastly I eill use either a pale pink lipgloss or I sometimes use the colour sticks by revlon to give my lips just a bit more of a colour. 
That's it for my step by step everyday makeup guide. I hope this helped you all out!

Being healthy

The past few weeks I have been trying to find the best way to be healthy and work out. I have been trying to have more salads and fruit as it's getting to summer now, but that can sometimes get boring having the same thing all the time. So I have been having healthy meals but not eating as much, and trying to drink more water as it's healthier to drink and for your skin.
Breakfast - you can just have the basics such as toast or a healthy cereal, or you can have some fruit and pour some natural yoghurt over the top. You can also do this with your cereal for a healthier breakfast. 

Lunch - crisp breads and crackers with cream cheese and pepper on top are one option also homemade soup with some bread or crackers again is also just as healthy. 

Dinner - Mixed salad with fish and lemon juice is extremely healthy and lovely in the summer, but if your not a fan of fish then chicken or ham can also be used as a replacement. 
Workout - I feel that you sometimes need a motivation to do a workout session especially if you don't go to the gym. I uses to go jogging but sometimes that can get too repetitive, but if your doing it from home I would recommend a workout DVD. They usually have a few different workouts that you can pick from and I find them really easy and motivating as you have someone talking you through it all the way. I have the Amy Child's workout DVD with is good for toning and loosing weight, but you have to be eating healthy as well before you see the benefit. I am the worst for forgetting to do a workout session everyday but I have been doing it for the last week and you won't see the benefit straight away, but you do feel better for it.

My Youtube Channel

So a few weeks ago I decided to make a YouTube channel, after I started writing my blog. It is basically my channel where I do some hair and makeup tutorials on it, some fun videos, challenges, daily Vlogs and just where I have a laugh. I am writing this on here just so that some of you who may not know that I make videos, now do and you also know what it is about. At the moment I don't really have that many videos on there but I have only just started about a month ago so there is plenty more to come. I am also going to DigiFest and I will definitely be doing a daily vlog on that. On my channel in most videos I have put my twitter and instagram account on there for you to follow me if you like and make sure that you check out my videos and subscribe. Also you can let me know what type of videos you want me to do in the future by twitter, or commenting on my videos or blog posts.

Shopping spree

To end the Easter I went to london with my friend on Monday, and we went for a wander around Oxford Street and I really wanted to go into Lush as I just love it in there! So we went in the shop and OMG it smelt gorgeous and everything just looked so pretty in there. I decided that I wanted to buy the king of skin crown bar after hearing about it loads by other you Tubers, it is so moisturising and smells amazing. It is officially my all time favourite thing to use for my skin now and I would definitely go and buy it again. However I did by a couple of other bits in there which I'm very excited to try out. I decided to buy the "bunch of carrots" because they have the Easter bits out now and they just looked so cute I couldn't resist, they have a slight sparkle to them and smell great. I also bought the "Golden egg" from the Easter part which I'm quite nervous about using as there is so much glitter on there it's unreal, my hands were covered just by putting it in the basket. However when the lady spoke to me she told me that it was very nourishing and made your skin feel really soft, which made me feel better about buying it. The lady in the shop was also recommending to me some of the bath bombs which was the most relaxing and had the best smell so I ended up buying the "Twilight bath ballistic" which had the best smell out of all the ones I bought. It smelt really sweet and it has Lavender in it which is relaxing, calming and makes you feel so fresh afterwards. 
I will be doing a Haul video soon of all the bits I bought over the whole of the Easter weekend.

Lovely Lips

So usually when I go to buy some new lipsticks or lip glosses I would usually go for the ones with a really nice shine and shimmer. However, I recently purchased a lipstick and a lip lacquer which are both matte which I really like. The first one I bought was a Rimmel London by Kate Moss in shade 110 Red which is a lovely bright red colour, I really like this one as it is really moisturising but has a nice finish to it. The next one I bought was MUA luxe velvet lip lacquer in a pink colour called "funk", This has to be my new favourite as it is really pigmented, lasts for so long and it does not smudge or wear off during the day. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes bright colours and is out for the majority of the day and doesn't want to keep applying it through the day. The pink colour works really well with warm colours like gold and bronze, whereas the red lipstick is quite bright so cooler and darker colours will look better with this particular shade.

Messy twist

So lately I have been trying to find new hairstyles to try on my hair, as it is just below my shoulders. Currently I have just been having it down, with a plait on the side, but this can get a bit boring after a while. This is why I have decided to try new styles having my hair up, which can be a bit tricky with my hair length. However at work I put my hair up in a "messy twist", which looked quite simple and casual and that is just what i wanted. My hair is quite thick so I struggled with keeping it in place as you don't want too many pins in, but you still need it to be secure. I used some waxe to pick out the parts to stick out and used one clip on one twist and one clip on the other. This hair style is quick and simple because it does not need to be perfect, just twist, pin and make it messy! You don't need to have two, you can have one or however many you want and it can be interpreted your own way. This style does not need to look like this you can twist your hair and swirl it or just twist along the bottom of your hair and leave the side down. This will probably be easier with hair my length or just a bit longer as it may be tricky to secure these with longer hair. However it is possible.

spring time colours

Its spring time and nearly Easter, so I have been buying a few things to add to my makeup bag which I wouldn't usually buy. I went out and bought the high Gelly shine Barry m nail polish in a blue pastel colour which looks nice and light. This is called blueberry, I also purchased a 24 hour colour tattoo in metalic pomegranate. With these colours you can wear them in the spring and also in the summer, as they can be bright or very subtle. I bought these as I like to wear something that is noticeable and lasts a long time. I would recommend these as they are perfect colours for spring.

Shiny and textured

Guys, so my Blogs are going to  be about general life, Hair and Beauty. As we all know that finding the right products for your hair can be a nightmare! However it can be so simple as it depends on how your hair is currently. So if like me you have decided to go abit shorter than usual where your hair is just on your shoulders and you want a sort of "big hair look" then I would suggest root powder and back combing. This can be a bloody annoying  to use if you put to much on your hair, but I would suggest bed head sugar dust. this is because it is very light and it can be used to just sprinkle on your hair for a textured look.
Also I think that if your hair is quite long and you want a bit of shine I would definitely recommend a shine spray in a fine mist, as these do not make your hair look greasy, the light just bounces of it to give your hair a natural shine.
I have a video tutorial on me using the sugar dust and shine spray for my "everyday hair" video on my channel...

Go and check it out!!
