Organising my life

Just as a pre-warning this is a little different to my usual posts related to beauty but I hope that you enjoy it and you take something away from it nonetheless.

Ok, so recently I embarked upon my final year of high school, now that sounds really scary, and I felt that in order for me to be as prepared as I can be for my exams I had better start organising my life and so I took a trip to Staples. However I managed to convince myself that I needed what felt like almost half of the stationary in the shop which is no mean feat as our local staples is a converted warehouse..

Anyway I have made a start on 'organising my life' and so I thought I would share with you how I have begun to get organised.

Blu tack is just one of those things that you feel you need in order to keep yourself organised because it's just so useful I tend to use it for putting up my revision posters *yawn*

I also bought some notecards, card holders and customisable card dividers to store my revision in, I will be going back to collect more of these as they just make you feel so prepared!

Finally I bought the usual folders these were only 50p each so I stocked up, I also bought a lever arch file which was also a bit of a bargain at only £1.00!

I hope to write more of these posts as I start to collect more things to help me organise myself so keep an eye out for more like this!

MaxFactor Pink Brandy

I recently went to a family members wedding (it was a lovely day) and me being me (one of the most unorganised human beings in all the world) I left everything until the last minute...As you can well imagine it was a mad dash into town to go and collect the final bits and pieces to make my outfit complete.

I decided to take a quick look in Boots, yes the same Boots where I find it inexplicably easy to spend upwards of £25 every time I go in, so it probably wasn't one of the best ideas I've ever had! However I was very self controlled and only bought the things that I had been meaning to get anyway.*she smiles smugly to herself*. 

I picked up two things, the first being the well renowned Essie's Mint candy apple (look out for a blog post on this) and the second being Max Factor's Pink Brandy. 

So down to what this blog post is all about, Pink Brandy.

Pink Brandy is a semi-matte soft pink lipstick which can be applied with virtually no effort, which is great as you don't have to worry about it sliding down your face during the day or you missing your lips completely when trying to apply it on the move. It also lasts a very long time (around 2-4 hours depending on what I am doing) before having to reapply it. 

It retails at £6.99 from boots which I happen to think is a steal! Overall I really enjoy wearing this lipstick as it just adds that extra something to your makeup without it looking overdone. I also love it because I find it easy to pair with a gloss to zhush (again not a word) your look up a bit.

However I am only here to tell you about my experiences so why not pop down to boots to give it a try for yourself.

Excuse the chunk missing but I put the lid onto the lipstick..oops
