Whats in My Bag .....?

I like taking a little bag out with me as I always like to have my phone, some cash and a lipbalm! Here is what is in my bag :: ( I apologise for the rubbish photography, once again!!)

I also usually have a umbrella since it rains alot in the UK but its in my school bag at the moment! Current lip balm is from the body shop and it smells divine; Hand sanitiser is always useful and the pink flowery pouch has everything a girl needs from tissues to plasters!! My purse is from Primark ( I practically live in that shop!) and I love it!!
Have a great day!

5 Essential Make- Up Products

I dont wear very much make-up at all (sometimes none - actually quite regulary) but I like to make myself look a little bit pretty! So I thought I would tell you the 5 make up products I could not live without!! ( I apologise for the rubbish photo but Its just easier to use my Ipod and I cant work out how transfer photos from my camera!)

Left To Right - Balmi lip balm in Raspberry, No7 Blush in Honey, No7 Conceler in Medium, MUA Undressed Palette, Accesorize Collegen mascara in Black/Brown
Balmi Lip Balm - Just lip balm in general is essential for me. My Current favourite is the Balmi lip balm balls. They are very simaler to the eos lip balms but they are available in the UK. Its not cheap, but its well worth the money, comes in loads of flavours and smells divine
No7 Blush in Honey - I dont really like blush but this colour is a bronzy, natural colour which just gives a lovely glow and looks like your wearing no blush. I love it and wear it almost everyday!!
No7 Conceler - If I could have only one make up product, it would be this! I love conceler as I dont really want to where foundation or powder but conceler just corrects any bad areas. This one is my personal favourite as its very natural on blends out really well! Sorry, I've just gone on rambling; I tend to do that.
MUA Undressed Palette - I dont wear eyeshadow that much but this palette is absolutly gorgeous! Its got really pretty, neutral colours. I tend to just quickly sweep one colour across my eyes and It still looks great!
Accessorize Collegen Macsara - I really dont like that kind of fake-over-the-top-caked-in-mascara look on my eyes so I use this very carefully and sparingly. But when I get it right, it looks really nice. I actually prefer clear mascara but I need to get a new one as my current one is rubbish!!
As you've probably guessed I love the natural no-make-up look as I really feel you don't need to wear alot to look good, even if you think you do!
I haven't done a post on make up yet so I am a bit worried whether people will like it and have had serious deliberations over whether to post it. But your reading it so.... well ... here it is!! Hope you enjoy it!(Sorry again for my ramblings and the length of this post but I just can't stop myself!)
Have a great day

Helena's Reviews: Brave!

The other day I went to see the new Disney Pixar movie, Brave! So I thought I'd do a review!

I'm not a really a massive Disney fan but I've been quite interested in this film and one of my best friend's was desperate to see it so the other day I went to the cinema with a few of my best friends and  saw this movie!

Before going to see this I new virtually nothing about it other than it was set in Scotland. If you wondering whether to go and see this, I do recommend it but first I'm going to try and give a bit of spoiler-free background to wet your appetite....

It's set in medieval Scotland and the main character Merida (Kelly McDonald) is a Princess, the daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Yet Merida doesn't want to be a princess and wear pretty dresses and always be polite; she would rather be riding her horse and doing archery in the nearby woulds. When her mother tells her she must marry, Merida wishes more than anything that she could change her fate. But when she gets what she wants, its not what she was expecting..

I did enjoy this film although it did have the classic Disney storyline ( person wants something and when they get it, it goes wrong and they have to put it right.) where you know whats going to happen at then end!! Never the less, Its still one of the best Disney films I've seen and the Pixar animation is quite amazing!

Overall this is a great film which you NEED to see whether you are a movie fan or not!
Have a great day

Carrie Hope Fletcher - itswaypastmybedtime
I found out about Carrie via Alex Day (who i love to) and instantly  fell in love with her videos. I love her song covers and her voice is really, really good. I also love her other videos to as they are really interesting and amusing to watch. The video above is her cover of Set Fire to the Rain, which is one of my favourites.
