Work Experience Goodies

Hello and Welcome,

On Wednesday, I was lucky enough to work at my Dad's friends company for a day! The company is called Marber Eleganza and they create packaging for the cosmetic industry. So as part of the experience, I got to see how things were run and products they had made before. Also, I designed my own make up bag! It was really interesting and a great experience.

I first did some research on packaging already out there and looked at some of my favourite makeup brands. I then sketched some ideas for packaging, bags and boxes. I created my design and it was then created on the computer. This is what it looks like (sorry for the bad quality photos!)

It is a travel makeup bag, made to look like a mini suitcase, perfect for taking on holiday! I was inspired by Benefit's fun packaging, and also included a tutorial (the bit sticking out that folds over!)  like many of their products do. It has room for brushes, pots and palettes, and a mirror. It was really fun designing this, and I am so thankful for the experience!

I am also very thankful for the lovely goodies I was given! I received some samples to share with my sister and they are so nice.

Max Factor Lipstick Boxes
Clinique Travel Plastic Bags

Rimmel Eyelash Curler
Nail Files

I really enjoyed my work experience and I am so thankful for my goodies! It was great to see what the job was like as it is something I am really interested in! So what is your dream job?

Birthday 2014-Haul

Hello and Welcome,

Sorry this has taken such a long time, but I've finally got around to my Birthday Haul. I would just like to say thank you soooo much to all my friends and family for my presents, and to anyone that wished me a happy birthday! I had such a nice time and I am so grateful :)

I just want to say, I'm not bragging about my presents, I just enjoy reading these posts so I hope you do too!

My main present (which was a fab surprise!) was a Samsung Galaxy Tab. I've kind of been glued to it recently but I love it! I also received some lovely items of clothing, beauty bits, money and chocolate! You can't have a birthday without chocolate :)

I'm sure most of these products will be featured in future posts, either an OOTD, FOTD or My Favourites. So look out for that! (Please comment down below any blog post requests my lovelies!)

Birthday 2014-Shopping

Hello and Welcome,

As you may know, last Sunday was my birthday! I am so grateful for everything I received, all the birthday messages and for a great day! Watch out for a birthday haul very soon.

On Sunday, Lexie and I went shopping along with my family. We spent most of the day looking around Primark as we don't have one near where we live. Primark have some lovely Summer items for such low prices, and we went a bit crazy! So here is what I bought with some of my birthday money. I don't mean to brag about this, I just want to share it with you.

White Tee
Watermelon Flip-flops
Makeup Wipes
White Trainers
Kimono (left)
Grey Crop Top (left)
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

I love all my purchases and I will wear them throughout Summer (they will definitely be in an OOTD!) 

I also wanted to include our OOTD's as it was such a pretty day! I love Lexie's style and her bag and boots are so nice. My sister, Anna, also has a cute outfit and I love her scarf!

Comment down below if you want to know where something is from and I will reply. Thanks for reading and see you soon.

Tumblr Tagged

Hello and Welcome,

To make up for the lack of posts, I thought today I will do the Tumblr Tagged posted! I was nomminated by the lovely Jessie at Painting The Ocean. Her blog is so nice and her instagram is one of my faves, so please go check her out! She deserves so many followers!

So the rules
1. Post the rules
2. Answer the questions the tagger has sent you through their post and make a new set of 11 questions
3. Tag 11 people and link them to your post
4. Let them know you've tagged them

The questions
1. If you were stuck in a room with pizza, Sherlock Holmes and Tinkerbell, how would you get out?
I've never really thought about this… ok I would use Tinkerbell's fairy dust to turn the pizza into a giant flying pizza and enlarge Sherlock's hat, so  we could all fly out the window on the pizza using Sherlock's giant hat as protection from the glass :) wow that was a hard question!

2. Are you a strawberry or a carrot? Why?
Definitely a strawberry, small but sweet :)

3. Would you rather be stranded on a desert island with Harry Styles or a really cute dog?

A really cute dog, I'm a dog lover not a directioner soz :)

4. If you were to write a book about anything, what would be your first line?
T'was the night before Christmas… I think it's a good way to start a book :)

5. What would be your game plan if you were in the hunger games?

I would use the element of surprise… probably hiding in the tallest tree and shooting from the top

6. You see a stranded monkey on the road *yeah I know weird*, what do you do?

Take him home of course, I've always wanted a pet monkey!

7. Would you rather live in a submarine or a palace made of cardboard?

I think the submarine would be more practical, especially in England. Rain + cardboard = bad news

8. What name do you wish you were called?
I really like my name, but I've always loved the name Isabella

9. If you were to create a social networking site, what would you call it?

Hmm probably… Chatterbox

10. You are in charge of your country. What rules do you have?

No fighting or discrimination (on a serious note), free ice-cream and pizza for everyone, and at least £10 to spend in Topshop a week :)

11. Socks and crocs or jeans and a skirt? Which is worse?

Oh this is hard… I literally can't decide… what do you think?

I nominate
You Wish You
Walk Through My Life
Wallflower Wardrobe
Chloe Lancaster
Lucy Jane
Chloe's Little Nothing
Life Of Libby
Fashion Signal
Hey It's Hannah
Everything Olivia

And anyone who wants to do this tag!

My questions for the nominees…
1. Tumblr or Instagram?
2. Would you rather wear double denim or socks and sandals?
3. Who is your celebrity crush and why?
4. Pastel Pinks or Bright Blue?
5. If you could only invite 3 people for a dinner party, who would they be?
6. What is your favourite item of clothing?
7. If you could only got to one shop for the rest of your life, which shop would it be?
8. What is your dream holiday?
9. Stripes or Spots?
10. Have you ever met a celebrity, if so who?
11. What would you do if the Queen turned up at your house?

I hope you enjoyed my answers and found this fun! The questions were actually really challenging but fun to answer so thank you Jessie! Good luck to all the nominees :)

P.S. It's my birthday tomorrow yayay and Lexie and I (along with my famalam) are going out for the day shopping! So hopefully there will be a birthday haul soon!
