I may or may not have went a little crazy in Debenhams on the Urban Decay stand last Saturday *insert monkey with hands over eyes emoji here* and i thought i would photograph my purchases and show you all (like 2 people) the things i got.

After getting my makeup done by a makeup artist working on the Urban Decay stand, i fell in love with the makeup she used and wanted it all to add to my collection. Therefore, my mum decided to treat me for a prom/early birthday present.

Firstly, i got the Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup and i got this in the shade 3.5. Although this is quite expensive at £27 compared to a foundation you would find on the high-street, its simply amazing. It feels like you're wearing nothing at all, making your skin look natural, illuminated and bright yet transforms all complexions.
Along with this, i got the Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in the shade Light. This concealer covers imperfections without looking covered up so it's definitely worth the money at an overall cost of £17.50.

This is the Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush which cost £21. This is a great brush for both liquid and powder products because it distributes product evenly over the skin making it look smoother than ever.

Here i have the Pore Perfecting Complexion Primer PotionThis gives a silky feeling to the skin which minimizes the look of pores and fine lines. It feels light, non greasy and gives a smooth finish for makeup. The cost of this is £19.50.
Following this is the Eyeshadow Primer Potion in the shade Minor Sin. This is an amazing product as it helps your eyeshadow stay on for 24 hours providing a more vibrant colour and no creases. The cost of this is £16.

This has to be the most gorgeous Urban Decay Eyeshadow ever and this photograph certainly doesn't do it justice. This shadow is in the shade Space Cowboy and creates a gorgeous, sophisticated glow to the lids. The iridescent sparkle makes your eyes stand out and looks flawless when the light shines on it. The cost of this is £14.00.

My favourite purchase is the Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette. I already have the Naked 3 Palette so i was happy to add another one to my collection. All the shades in this palette are gorgeous neutral tones making them easy to wear. Ranging from shimmer, matte and satin, you cant go wrong! The total cost is £38.50.

This is a small size of the De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray which was £9. This is amazing at making sure your makeup is long lasting and that you hardly ever need a touch up.

This is the Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder in the shade Naked Light which cost £23. This is an amazing product to set all your makeup but it is also great for adding extra coverage when you feel like you need it most.

This is the Brow Box - Eyebrow Powder, Wax & Tools in the shade Brown Sugar which cost £19.50. This matches my eyebrows perfectly and the tools that come with it are really handy for when you're travelling.

I never usually wear lip liners as i never feel like they make much of a difference but after wearing this one, i want more! This is called the 27/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in the shade Naked 2. I am absolutely obsessed with the colour, it looks amazing all over the lips, and because its creamy it glides on perfectly. The cost of this lip pencil is £13.50 which was the cheapest purchase of the day.

Finally, i have a Lipgloss in the shade Nooner which is absolutely gorgeous. Not only does it look amazing by itself, it also looks lovely on top of the lip liner above adding a sheen to the lips. The cost of this is £15.

Thankyou so much for reading.

My family and I took a trip to London for my Nan's birthday so i took advantage of it and had the opportunity to become a typical tourist. Walking around London streets, snapping away at anything and everything in my path.
London has to be one of my favourite cities ever!

During our trip away; we went on a bus tour which took us around London to see the famous yet beautiful landmarks, we went on the London eye, a boat trip across the River Thames and finally we visited Madame Tussauds which was amazing.

There's no real story to this sequence of photos, i just thought they were pretty and had happy memories so i wanted to post them.

 I can't wait to come back and visit London again as there's so much more i want to do!

Thankyou for reading.

Love, A x

GlossyBox is a monthly beauty subscription box. I love GlossyBox because the packaging is really pretty, their products are usually deluxe size or full size, and it gives you a chance to try out new things.
I was really happy with this months box and i'm really excited to try everything out!

If i were to buy all these items in full size, the total cost would be £106.99. However, i only had to pay £10 for this box so i would definitely recommend. I enjoy receiving my monthly GlossyBox as it gives me an opportunity to try out new things that iv'e never heard of and you could potentially end up loving them. My favourite item in this box has to be the Olay Regenerist Skin Tone Perfecting Cream. This is because iv'e never heard of anything like this before and my skin has been really bad lately so i'm excited to try it out.
