Hiiiii,yes it's been about a year hasn't it. A lot happened,and I've wanted to blog but never quite got round to it.

I'm sure no one will see this,but I quite like the way my make-up has turned out today,for a while I've felt like my make-up is lacking something,then realised I just never wear eyeshadow,barely even own one.So,I splashed out on NAKED 3,and I genuinely just messed around today,it's nothing spectacular but I think it looks quite pretty, so I'll insert some photos.

Wearing: AVON BB Cream(seriously,better than any high end foundation I've tried.)
               Collection 2000 concealer
               Murad concealer
               Too Faced Chocolate Bronzer in Deep
               Topshop highlighter in moonshine
               NAKED 3 Palette(Blackheart under eyes,Stranger in tear duct,and various on the lid)
               Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
               Revlon Julianne's Nude on my lips(hard to tell due to the lighting but it's a sheer pink nude)
               All Nighter Spray - Urban Decay

I'll usually also add Stay Matte pressed powder as my skin is very oily but i want to test the urban decay spray

thanks for reading x

TempleSpa; Purification Deep Cleansing Clay Mask - Review

My mum recently hosted a Temple Spa 'party' at our house,where basically someone who works for the company comes round and talks about the company's products,and the guests can order products if they wish. I've never really heard of the brand apart from my mum saying it was brilliant,but I assumed it was all for older women's skin. However,without me knowing my mum bought me the Cleansing Clay Mask without me knowing. It's especially for oily skin,and I have really oily skin.
I've used it three times now,as it says you can use daily,but will probably cut down to once every few days or once a week, I just wanted to see the effects.
Looks extremely appealing..

After just using this a couple of times,I have already seen a difference in my skin. You can leave it on for 5,10,or 20 minutes,and as I was short on time I firstly only used it for 5.

After a few minutes I started breaking out and panicked,but then read the information and saw that is the point,to draw out your impurities and clear the pores. After using it a couple more times my skin is clearing up,it is far less red and my pores are much less visible,as all the impurities have been drawn out of them.
I'll definitely continue using this as it is really working for my oily skin.

You can also dot it on problem areas and leave it on overnight,with the same effect,just cover your pillow with a towel!

I splash my face with cold water and exfoliate after using it,as this closes the pores and gets rid of the dead skin on my face.

The only slight con is the cost,this retails at £22, which is pretty steep. However,although it's extremely thick,I only needed about a 5p coin sized lump to cover my entire face.

I did take a photo of the mask on my face,but not sure you want to see that,it isn't the prettiest sight!

Summer Is Finally Here!!

So they past few days have been super hot where I live(and by super hot I mean between 20-25C,which is sweltering for the very North of Scotland).Finally,we've been given some sunshine and heat,and it's lovely! The past few days I've been strawberry picking,had barbecues and gone on day trips with family and friends,good weather really means you can do so much more.I thought I'd share some photos of the past week.

A bit of a rubbish photo as my sister and I drove to pick strawberries at a  farm about 40 minutes away,I love road trips
My heaven!

Family Barbecue last night.

Are you enjoying the heatwave if you're living in the UK?

Songs I've Been Loving This Month!(June)

I think I'm going crazy since leaving school,is it bad I'm not sure whether I should have those capitals in the title or just the first word?!)
Anyway,I've been loving a lot of music recently so I thought I'd maybe start this feature and see how it goes!

Frank Turner - The Way I Tend To Be
I really like quite a lot of Frank Turner's music,for a while I had We Shall Not Overcome on repeat,and after hearing this on the radio I'm currently loving The Way I Tend To Be ,it really relates to me and makes me feel really mushy.

Passenger - All The Little Lights

To be honest I've had his whole album on repeat and love every single song,but this one especially touches 

Bastille- Laura Palmer
Again,I love the whole album and have it on repeat when I'm in the shower but this is one of my favourite songs,along with Overjoyed and Icarus.ALL OF THEM!

Tom Odell- Another Love
I loved this when I first heard it on Radio 1 but now they've overplayed it,but I still love it,although it's extremely sad and makes me cry!It's beautiful.

Kodaline - All I want
Rediscovered this recently,I heard it a few months ago but listened to it and never downloaded it. I love this so much,it's really haunting and the video is so so touching.

I kind of have about ten more songs I've loved this month(it's July,just,but shh) but am beginning to overplay,like Treasure by Bruno Mars,but you're probably bored of me rambling!

(Wow no blogging for 10 days then 3 posts in one night is how I roll,I should space them out but I hate making drafts I want to post them now!)

What songs are you loving?

30 Day Snap #30 (AND APOLOGIES!)

ahh I know,I missed ten days.I've just really,really not been up to much they would have been of my dog or dinner.Which I just thought would have been boring!Also,for some reason our internet went over even though 99.9% of the time I'm on my phone,so I wasn't really allowed on my laptop(but it went over even when I stopped using it so my parents and sister were the offenders,not me as all I did was do a few blogposts,everything else I do on my phone!)Sorry for being so absent,I'll try to post more often(even though I'm sure no-one was saying oh no!Alice hasn't posted,my day will be worse now!)

I went to the beach yesterday with my Mum and Dad but stupidly only took videos,and got my mum to take a photo of me on the beach but it was so so windy and I had no make-up on so I don't really want to post that,haha.HOWEVER I made a banoffee pie when I got home so here's a photo of it:

It was so simple to make(just let me know if any of you want the recipe) and extremely delicious if I do say so myself!I was just in Tesco with my mum and I was like I would LOVE you to make a banoffee pie it's my favourite dessert and I haven't eaten it in years.Then I thought why don't I make it,so voila!

Okay going to post 2 snaps as it looked pretty cool before I covered it in cream!
