Guest post: Embrace the "alter ego" in you! by Keeley from Dragging Online

Hi everyone! Whilst Jennie is off "festival-ling" it up in a field somewhere, I have been given the opportunity to write a guest post for this wonderful blog of hers. Now, when Jennie put out a tweet to get guest bloggers to help out, I jumped at the chance as I am kind of on a one (wo)man mission to get a certain word out there.

Guest Post: Reading and Leeds Playlist by Eleanor from Effy's Spaces

August bank holiday weekend to many is just an lie in on Monday, but to some it is the best weekend of the year. 3 days of music, merriment and mud... mostly mud. I have gone to Leeds Fest the last two years and can honestly say some of my fondest memories have been made there, with some of the best people! Unfortunately I'm not going this year and it's killing me... Arctic Monkeys please!

LEEDS FESTIVAL SERIES // CHAPTER 2: 2011



Hi lovelies, 
If you keep up-to-date with my blog I've started a little series about Leeds Festival, sharing my experiences with you all! You can read Chapter 1 here

2011
The second year I went to Leeds, I went with my mum, her boyfriend Stan and my friend Becks. Again, this year we arrived on the Friday but we went very early in the morning. We got our guest tickets and then headed into the guest bar after putting up our tent. That day me and Becks went to see Enter Shikari (quite drunk) where we met two girls that were very drunk too and equally loved Enter Shikari just like me! That night we saw a little bit of Elbow as we walked around and then we watched Muse headline which was absolutely incredible! 

On the Saturday the day started out extremely great as Louis Tomlinson from One Direction (my favourite at the time) walked into the guest area and smiled at us!! I was so shy I didn't even want to ask for a picture so we just assumed he would be back and we could ask then - he wasn't, I was sad. We watched a little bit of The Blackout that afternoon and then I met my mum for a little while and had a few drinks in the guest bar. We finished the night on an incredible note, watching Thirty Seconds to Mars where I nearly passed out, and My Chemical Romance, where I bust my nose in a mosh pit that I created - hardcore since I was 14. 

The Sunday was my favourite day. We watched Seasick Steve and Two Door Cinema Club and then spent the rest of the day in the Festival Republic Tent trying to get a good place for The Midnight Beast who were headlining and were my favourite band at the time! We watched them and my happiness was fulfilled. We then went back to the guest bar and had a few vodka and lemonades. I'd been talking to Ashley and Stefan from The Midnight Beast over Twitter quite a lot before Leeds so I knew they were going to be in the guest bar. After going to the toilet me and Becks came out and gave a little bit of scream when I saw them huddled together with Nick from Hadouken! and some others that I recognised! We went over and I was like "Hi, I'm a big fan, can I have a picture, I don't want to stay long because I don't want to freak you out" - that ironically probably freaked them out. After our pictures, Stefan laughed with us and then sat back down with his friends and we kept talking to Ashley and Dru. Whilst I was speaking to Dru, Ashley said to my friend "Is she Liam Gallagher's daughter?" You can probably guess how excited I was by now, one of my favourite celebrities had just asked if I was Liam Gallagher's daughter! We spent from midnight until 3am speaking to Ashley, Jake the piano player and Marc the dancer! Then they got told that it was time to go so me and Becks excitedly went to sleep! 

My camera broke that year so I didn't have too many photographs but here are the ones I do have! 



Did you go to Leeds 2011? Did you enjoy it? Who did you see? 

Lots of Love

2013 Beauty Favourites

As you may have realised, 2013 is over and 2014 has begun. Over the 365 days in 2013 I have gathered many new loves of mine in the beauty department. As I am currently in one of those enthusiastic, inspiring, rare moods I'm just going to go ahead and jump straight into it.

Foundation, Concealer, Powder and Bronzers. 


Foundations, Concealer, Powder and Bronzer


If you have read my blog post from my prom experience, you will have read that I was given the fantastic opportunity to have a makeover at Nars and therefore I was able to try out some of their products. Although I loved each product they used on me, two products were my favourite: Nars sheer glow foundation and Nars bronzer in Laguna (read my bronzer section for this). After I attended Leeds Festival I had around £40 left over and I was starting college shortly after and so I wanted to try a much better foundation so I went on and bought Nars Sheer glow foundation in Ceylan. Although it's rare I get this sort of money to buy a high end foundation I love using this foundation for special events such as Christmas and New Years eve. Unfortunately my Nars sheer glow has almost ran out which is a shame but I have found some cheaper alternatives which are nearly as great as it. Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation has been my most recent foundation purchase and the coverage is great for the cheaper price of £10.99. I will definitely be continuing with this for 2014.

Oh my gosh, why did I not purchase the blogger/youtuber hyped Collection's lasting perfection concealer sooner!? For under £5 the coverage is AMAZING. I have a mole on my chin and with this concealer it pretty much makes it almost invisible, which is my aim. It also just brightens up my face and it lasts all day so I look ripe and healthy ALL DAY. Amazing.

Since 2012, I have actually been using MAC's studio fix powder foundation just as a 'loose powder' (if I'm allowed to call it that?). I love it because it makes everything that's too shiny, not shiny. It's also good coverage and I like some coverage. I should be the likes to be covered gal. That sounds stupid actually maybe I'll steer clear of that nickname. Anyway, I love this as a powder. It's great.

Bronzer this year has become my best friend. Since learning how to bloody contour at last, I have miraculously had bones on my face I didn't know existed and I have felt a lot more confident about my face in general, thanks to Nars bronzer in Laguna. THIS IS NOT OVER-HYPED. It's actually as amazing as everyone says it is. It's just the right shade for any skin tone, so it's just bloody brill.

Eye shadows, Eye liner and Mascara.

For me, I have only just started to become confident in eye make up and so my 'collection' of shadows isn't really a collection. For my birthday Ellis, my boyfriend, treated me to my first Urban Decay palette which was the Ammo palette. Although this isn't really acceptable for a day time look, I love this palette for any of my evening looks, whether I am partying, going to a meal or going to the cinema. It contains some beautiful neutral shimmer shades but my favourites are Smog and Sin which I use very often.

I don't wear eyeliner as much as I used to but now and again my go-to eyeliner is Loreal's superliner in Black and it's still going strong after buying it over a year ago and the line is pretty perfect, even with my awful attempts at winged liners.

My favourite mascara has only recently come into my life after seeing my friend Amy use it in college. It's the Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless. I loved the packaging for starters, it's a neon metallic limey-yellow packaging - how fun. But it really is a great mascara because my lashes don't get clumped anymore which used to be a big problem of mine.

Lipsticks


My favourite lipsticks of 2013

As you may have noticed I have only written "lipsticks" and not the whole, lip glosses, stains etc. This is due to the fact, although trying out several lip glosses this year, I am definitely a lipstick junkie and wear my lipsticks 95% - ish of the time. My favourites this year have been Rebel, Lady Danger, Russian Red and Cyber by MAC - all dark lipsticks because I think they suit me more than most others.

This is all for my 2013 beauty favourites! What were yours? Tell me in the comments, I'd love to know!

I hope you're all having a wonderful 2014 already.

Lots of Love
