Beauty Blogger Tag...

Hey Lovelies, I hope you're having a good week!

I saw this tag floating around and I thought it looked fun so, yeah I hope you enjoy it!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Straight, with some very annoying kinks!

2. Whats your natural hair colour?
Um, I'd say it was a dark blonde type colour, but I do get highlights.

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I go to a salon!

4. How often do you wash your hair?
I wash it every night because it gets quite oily, but I might try to only wash it every other day.

5. Do you wear the same style everyday or do you change it?
I usually just wear my hair natural, but I occasionally put it up or in a side braid, I hardly ever use heat!

6. Do you do your own mani/pedi or do you go to a salon?
I've only had my nails done at a salon once and it was really nice but I tend to just do them myself.

7. How often do you change your nail polish?
Whenever it starts to chip really.

8. Do you paint your toes in the winter, or just in the summer?
I have mine painted all year round because I hate the look of my toes without nail paint!

9. How long does it take to do your makeup?
On a school day it only takes me about 10-15 minutes, but on a weekend I like to spend a little more time on it.

Quite a few, I don't really feel much like counting them!

Oh god this something I'm absolutely awful at, I hardly ever clean my brushes but I am trying to get in the habit of it!

18. Do you plan your OOTD the night before, or decide when you get dressed?
I have to wear a uniform for school so I don't really have a chance to plan outfits, but I do plan outfits for special events and non-uniform days.

Um, like never, I have a rucksack for school and two handbags which I sometimes switch up.

Spring has Sprung! OOTD...

Hey Lovelies!

Long time no blog (again!). It appears that after a long and very cold winter, Spring has finally sprung here in the UK, and today was the first day of the year I felt I could go out wearing something a little more summery.

Ew feet!

Jeans: River Island (no longer being sold).

Cardigan: Asos (no longer being sold).

I hope you enjoyed this little post.
Love Lucy xx

Lucy Loves | March 2013

Hey Lovelies! Better late than never!!

This is going to be a new section on my Blog called 'Lucy Loves' (hence the title) and it's basically just a monthly favorites post with a bit of a personal twist, there will be a 'beauty loves' section and a 'random loves' section in every post.

Beauty Loves:

1. Soap and Glory sugar crush body scrub, this is the best scrub I have ever tried, not only does it leave your skin flake free and extremely soft but it also has a really lovely fruity scent too!

2. World famous neutrals palette by Benefit, I've been loving this palette so much this month! I've been wearing the colours almost everyday as they're very wearable and suitable for everyday use.

3. The rocket mascara by Maybeline, I don't usually like mascaras with plastic applicators because I feel like they don't grab all the lashes and coat them properly, but I'd read really great reviews about this one and they weren't wrong! I love it and it makes my eyelashes look really long and full.

4. Revlon balm stains, These are my favorite lip products at the moment because they're really moisturizing and the colours are realy bright and last all day!

5.Pastel nail polishes, I absolutely love pastel colours for the spring and summer months and I've been buying so many pastel nail varnishes recently and they're just a few of my favorites.

Random Loves:
For some reason I wasn't able to upload a photo for this one but here's a list:
1. Dorset cereals chocolate and macadamia bars, omg these are fab because they taste really really yummy and chocolatey and sweet but they aren't super bad for you which is great!

2. Green Tea! (no particular brand) I tried green tea for the first time a few weeks ago and I loved it because it just tastes so good!

3. Painting, I've always loved art but this month I've been playing around with paints and I've just really been loving it so yeah, I thought I'd include that.

So that's everything I've been loving this month. I'm sorry its rather late but better late than never eh??

Love Lucy xx
