January Favourites 2015!!

Hi guys so as you all will know, Sunday is the
first of February which means we've reached the end of our first month of this year. So i'm going to share with you 9 things that I've been enjoying this month that I thought you would all enjoy as well. This is all stuff that is fairly inexpensive and that you'd all be able to find easily. So lets do this...

1. So the first item I've really enjoying this month is Maybelline's FIT foundation. Mine is in the colour 115. In my opinion this is a great foundation, always gives me great coverage and although it isn't my everyday go-to foundation, this is in second place on the list of my favourite foundations that I own.

2. So the second item I've been loving this month is W7's Prime Magic face primer. I've never really used a face primer before so I don't really deserve a say on whether it's good or not because it could be complete rubbish compared to other face primers but I like it and it's a high favourite this month.

3. My next favourite item for January is probably my most favourite out of them all and that is the very famous Soap And Glory Hand Food. For those of you that don't know what this product is, it is a scented hand cream and it smells amazing. This is one of them times where i wish you could smell what I'm smelling so you can see what I mean. I want a perfume in this scent, it's that nice.

4. This next item isn't a product but is something that is involved in my everyday routine, another very popular item at the moment and that is the Beauty Blender. Once again if you don't know what this product is, it's a tear shaped sponge that you use for applying foundation/concealer. You can use the rounded end for applying to your face and the pointed end for around the eyes, mouth and nose. I've used this sponge since they day I got it and its left me wondering why I've never used a sponge before, I've always used my fingers for applying foundation(really bad I know) but now i'm never going back to that.

5. So the next product is from Avon and yes I do work for them but I'm not sharing this product with you for marketing purposes. I've been using this since the end of December and I'm in love! It's the Avon Make Up Setting Spray. This product is great if your going on a long trip and wont have time to redo any of your make up. It keeps me looking fresh and keeps my make up perfect all day. All it requires is two-four sprays to the face from a good distance.

6. The next once again isn't as much a product as it is an appliance. These are great because regular rollers are really bad for your hair because of the velcro but these are great because they are Sleep In Rollers, so they are soft and i can just put them in at night and then take them out in the morning and have amazing hair that only needs a little brush and some dry shampoo and hairspray.

7. My next one is a lip product and it's just a little bit too good. I'm in love with all the shades of the Maybelline Super Stay 24 Colour. It deffinatley stays on, no matter what i eat or drink which is great but when it comes to my skincare routine in the evening, that lipstick isn't going anywhere, I've tried all sorts to get it off at night, so please, if you know anything let me know.

8. My next product will only be available for you countries with a Boots because its by The Natural Collection. Their products is something I used to buy when i was younger and just messing around with make up because it's cheap and I obviously didn't have a lot of money when I was 11. This is actually an eye shadow pallet but i use it for my eyebrows because it is the perfect shade for my skin tone and eye colour. They do lots of different eye shadow products but mine is in the colour Mocha/Latte which suits my coffee addiction well. Unfortunately I have lost my Latte bit of the pallet so I can't show you what the other shade looks like but its pretty much a cream shimmery colour.

9. My final product has been my little secret too looking so awake and radiant in my selfies the past month or so, I'm not really sure how effective it is in person but I'm in love with it anyway and its always a part in my daily make up routine.

Okay guys so that's it for today, I've decided that I will be blogging Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and I will try to keep posts as interesting as I can but that's everything for this month I guess and I'll see you Monday. X

The British tag

The British Tag!

Hi guys so today I thought I'd do The British Tag. So to me I know this is traditionally done on YouTube, however I thought this would be a great way for you to get to know me.

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? How many sugars? 
Ok so, I don't drink tea as much as I drink coffee, for me, tea is one of them drinks that you occasionally fancy. So I'd say if I have a tea, it'll only be 1-2 cups a day and I have 2 sugars.

2. Favorite part of your roast?
I don't tend to have a roast very often. So I guess I'm not a very good British person haha. I do however have a roast at Christmas, which is usually chicken/turkey, stuffing, roast potatoes, stuffing, veg, Yorkshire puddings, mash potato and pigs in blankets. So my favorite part of that would have to be pigs in blankets.

3. Favorite dunking biscuit?
For me any biscuit is a dunking biscuit, I literally dunk whatever biscuit we have in the cupboard in my tea/coffee. So if I had to choose an absolute favorite it would probably be rich tea biscuits. Purely because I am known for dunking for too long and then half the biscuit ends up floating in my drink, rich tea however isn't so much of a bother for this unlike bourbons which are chocolaty and sugary.

4. Favorite quintessentially British pastime?
Okay, so I can't think of anything in particular that I do that could be considered quintessentially British but things I do that other countries maybe don't do/as much are, sitting down with a coffee and watching Eastenders or Hollyoaks and taking a walk to the local shop in the freezing cold.

5. Favorite word?
Crockery. I don't know why this is a favorite, I pretty much just love the way it sounds. Go on say it haha. 

6. Cockney rhyme slang?
I did this in school in year 9 I think and in year 9, I wasn't one for listening much but the only one i do remember is apples and pears.

7. Favorite sweet?
This is a hard one for me! I eat a lot of chocolate more than I do sweets but I love Roundtree's Randoms, Fruit Pastels, Skittles. It would probably easier for me to say what I don't like, which is simply Harribos, absolutely hate them.

8. What would your pub be called?
I've never really thought of this but then unless you are opening a pub, why would you? I love French Bulldogs, i cannot wait to get one so I'll base my name around one of them. I shall call my Pug... The Great French Bulldog.

9. No.1 British person?
I actually have a few favorite British people. Gordon Ramsy, Cheryl Cole, Russel Brand, Jonathon Ross. Just love these people.

10. Favorite shop / Restaurant?
Favorite shop would hands down be H&M, most of my wardrobe is from H&M, although I should really stop shopping online because a lot of the stuff I have received has either been too small or massively too big. My favorite restaurant although for me it's not really a restaurant as me and my boyfriend Alex always eat in the car, would have to be Subway. We eat at subway a lot, I'm not really sure Subway is British though.

11. What British song pops into your head?
Sorry nothing, that screams Britain but the song that poped into my head was Cheryl's I Don't Care.

12. Marmite?
Blugh, hate it. It will never be seen entering my mouth.

Okay, so that's it for my British Tag, let me know some of your favorite British things and make sure you follow me on my Instagram @kirafelicialindxn

Red winter jumper

Okay, so hi everyone. So far this year I have developed a love for this red long neck jumper. It's just so soft and it keeps me so warm and I love that you can either dress it up or dress it down. Hope you enjoy these photos and my hopefully many posts to come. X
