Hey guys! As some of you may have noticed, I haven't blogged in a while! I'm in my third year of Uni, and in my last month, so it's pretty chaotic at the moment. Therefore, I have NOT had time to blog at all! But fear not! My last hand in date is May 23rd, so expect my blog to be and running again from that date! I may even have a play around with my design and the like, who knows!
I'm still very vocal on twitter @sirensandbells ;)
See you soon!

With my Benefit They're Real mascara running low, I decided to delve into my massive mascara collection and see what I could find.
Revlon's Grow Luscious mascara has a thick brush, which I am a fan of, and coats eyelashes evenly. I've been using a plastic brush recently, so the bristles were a change, and although the brush is a lot larger than I'm used to, I became accustomed to it quickly and really like it.
When it comes to mascaras, I want my lashes to be thicker, and most importantly, a lot longer. This mascara definitely does that, in 3 coats. I know some people allow each coat to dry before they apply another, but I do not do that because I am lazy and normally in a rush, plus I find allowing each coat to dry doesn't give me as nice an effect.
This is now my go-to mascara, and I imagine it will be for a while! It retails for £9.99 at Revlon stands in Boots, Superdrug and the Revlon website - which I think is a very affordable price, and I probably would repurchase it.
Have you tried this, and if so, what did you think?

Hey guys, today I thought I'd show you a new product that I have been obsessing over for the past few weeks!
When the wonderful people at Models Own decided to put on a 50% sale, I couldn't resist, and along with a plethora of nail polishes, I picked up one of their 'lip-stix' - which seemed to me to be a lot like the Clinique chubby sticks that every company have created dupes for.
I own many a pink lipstick/chubby stick etc, so I thought I'd go for the purple one purely because I want to dip my toe into more purple lip products. And oh my goodness, I could not be more impressed with it.
As those who have tried Chubby Sticks or similar products will know, the colour pay off is rarely amazing, providing a hint of colour as opposed to a real pigmented finish. However, the Models Own Lip Stix are not like that at all. I used one coat of Purple Pleasure and was so surprised at how pigmented it was! It applies beautifully smooth, feeling soft on my lips, adding moisture and the most gorgeous lilac colour to my lips. I am so impressed with this, I really thought that I'd get a hint of colour and some moisture, but not much more!
I am now determined to try some of their other colours, to see how they compare!

This is week's wishlist is a mix of everything really, isn't it? The sheer lip colour from Topshop is new (I think) so I shall definitely be picking that up when I go to Topshop in my hometown next week!
Also, those leggings are dupes for the Black Milk leggings that everyone is loving, so I shall definitely be picking those up, they're literally a fraction of the price!
I'm not sure if dresses in this shape suit me, but I think I'm going to try it on and see!
What's on your wishlist this weekend?
