Christmassy make up tutorial!

Well hello to you my reader chums! Merry Christmas to you all! Today I thought as its Christmas Eve, that I would show you how to create this Christmassy look which you could wear this festive season, I hope you like it!

Here's all the products I use to create this look! 
The first thing I do is the face make up.
I start by dabbing the collections lasting perfection concealer under my eyes to brighten them up and to any blemishes to cover them up. To set the concealer I push the Rimmel stay matte powder in soft beige all over my face, to not wipe off the make up already applied. I then use the bourjois chocolate bronzer and apply it on my cheek bones and lightly dust it on my face to give it that bronzy glow. For blush I use this topshop cream blush in morning dew where I dab it on my cheeks and blend it out with my fingers. 
The next step is eye brows, I use this light brown/taupe colour from the MUA undress me too palette. 
Now my favourite part the eye look! 
As a base I like to use this colour tattoo in eternal gold to give the look extra sparkles and to keep the eye shadow in place.
I then go on and apply the shimmery brown all over the lid, following with the darker brown in the outer corner and crease. Blend, blend, blend! For my brow bone, I use the creamy pink colour as it gives a natural highlight.
After the main eye shadow, I like to add some sparkle because its Christmas time yay! 

I apply this cream shadow in the centre of the lid to brighten up the eyes and give it some sparkle!

For the inner corner I then as per usual use this creamy colour.

At this point I'd usually go ahead and do winged liner, however I liked the look with out it. Instead, I used this black kohl liner on my tight line to make the lashes look thicker and the white liner on my water line to open up the eyes. To finish the eyes, I curl my lashes and apply great lash mascara by maybelline. I've been loving this mascara recently!

The last step is lips, I applied this chubby stick in crazy in love by MUA to finish of the look!

Here's the final look, I hope you enjoyed reading this and will give the look a go! Thankyou so so much for reading and for everybody whose been following my blog, it means so much! Can't believe this is my 100th post! Sending all love to you all this Christmas, hope you all have an amazing one! <3

UnionJ with chummy!

Well hello to you my reader chums! Last Tuesday I was lucky enough to go to the opening to UnionJ's Magazines + TV screens tour at my nearby town Margate.  I had such an amazing night and it was really nice to spend it with my best friend Danielle. UnionJ was honestly outstanding live, even better than their album, I loved every moment of the concert! Here's some of the pictures from the evening: 
Me and my chummy before the concert <3 



I definitely recommend seeing them live, they were honestly phenomenal! I've been a fan of them since they were on the X factor so I'm really happy I got to go! 
Here's the pic union j took of the whole audience! 
Danielle and I were also lucky enough to meet room 94 who opened for UnionJ! The guys were such great singers and I loved all their songs! It was lovely meeting then too, they were so down to earth and funny! :) 

Overall one of the best nights of my life! I'm so thankful to have gone and spent it with one of my bestest friends! Thankyou for reading, I hope you enjoyed! <3 

#BritishBloggerSelection:Haircare

Well hello to you my reader chums! Last weeks #BritishBloggerSelection was the topic of Haircare. I haven't really had time to do this post so although its late here it is! 
Here are my essential Haircare products which I use on my hair every other day. 
The shampoo and conditioner I use are the hello hydration set by Herbal Essences. I've used these for as long as I remember! Sometimes I change it up to test out new products,but always end up going back to these. I love this shampoo and conditioner, it always leaves my hair feeling fresh and so soft! I adore the smell and it's very inexpensive. Every other day I would apply the shampoo to the hair, mainly focused on the roots and rinse it out. Following this is where I apply my John Frieda purple shampoo. 
I apply this to the ends of my hair leave it for a few minutes and wash it out. As its a purple shampoo it's designed to tone the blonde in the hair. I use it as I have ombréd hair and it honestly makes such a difference! After use the blonde is shown as much brighter than before. When this is washed out I go back and apply my Herbal Essences conditioner, mainly focusing on the ends, following by a good rinse. Then voila that's my Haircare! 
When my hair is dried, if I use a heat appliance, the heat protecter I use is the styling spray from vo5. I've gone through several bottles of this and it definitely does the job! 
Here's me after I've had my hair in a plait. 

Thankyou for reading, I hope you enjoyed reading about my Haircare routine! <3

November favourites!

Well hello to you my reader chums! It's favourites time again as we finished yet another month. Here's what I've been loving this month: 
The first product as seen in my Skincare post is the Loréal skin perfection cleanser. I purchased this as I was running low on my body shop cleanser and I thought as I'd already bought the toner from this range and loved it that I would love the cleanser just as much. This cleanser is amazing. It's really gentle on the skin where you use it to wipe off your makeup off. It does the job of cleansing your skin and leaves it feeling smooth and refreshed, as well as it having a lovely scent! 
The next product is the raved about Rimmel stay matte powder in silky beige. I finally got my hands on it and its definitely worth the hype. It keeps my skin matte all day and I love this shade for my skin tone. Also it's not one of those powders which leave the face cakey yet gives enough coverage for an even skin tone. 
 The next product is the MUA sheer lip gloss. I've been using this a lot recently, it's lovely for a little gloss on the lips with it not being too sticky. It's also very affordable, another great product from MUA. 
The blusher I've been loving this month is this MUA blush in bubblegum. It's looks very autumnal/wintery to me as its a warmer shade of pink. It's highly pigmented but gives a lovely pink glow when blended. I've done a full review with swatches recently if you want to check it out. 
The next product which is again MUA is this dark pink chubby stick. I've been loving this as part of a lip combo this month. I would dap this on my lips and blend then on top apply the baby lips in peach kiss to create this light pink shimmery colour. 
My nail polish favourite of the month is this silver nail polish called silver screen by revlon. This is my first revlon nail polish and it's brilliant, the colour is so pretty and i'd say the lasting power is about 5 days. The packaging looks really elegant, altogether a great product. 

Being a directioner my music favourite of the month has to be their new album Midnight Memories. It came out towards the end of the month and I got it straight away. Absolutely fallen in love with it, all the songs are just fantastic, such an amazing album boys! Go have a listen if you haven't already! <3

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed! <3 

#BritishBloggerSelection:Skincare


Well hello to you my reader chums! We're finally in December yaaaay! As I had a couple of weeks away from blogging I missed week 3&4 of #BritishBloggerSelection, meaning I'm just going to go ahead with week 5. 
Here are the products I use everyday. 
After I've washed my face in the morning I wipe the cleanser and toner over my face to remove all the excess make up from the night before and all the impurities on my skin. In the evening I use them to take off my make up and to cleanse/tone the skin. The cleanser and toner I use is from the Loréal Paris skin perfection range. Both of these products are amazing, the cleanser easily removes the make up because its really gentle on the skin and the consistency is light and creamy. The toner leaves the skin feeling refreshed and as if all the nasty things within the skin have been taken away. Both of these products also have a really lovely scents which is a bonus! Definitely recommended if your looking for a good cleanser/toner.
The moisturiser I use after I've cleansed and toned in the morning is the moisture match for normal to dry skin by Garnier. I've used this moisturiser for a while and I actually love it! It leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth with it also having an amazing scent. The only down side is its not the lightest moisturiser, meaning you need to leave it for a bit to sink into the skin before you apply your make up. Despite this, it does the job and is great quality, another recommend! 

There's my skincare routine for you, I hope you enjoyed! Thankyou for reading <3

Winter begins!

Well hello to you my reader chums! Long time no see, feels like ages since I've sat down and written a blog. School has been really stressful lately with all the coursework I've been doing, meaning I haven't had much time to blog. But I'm back and ready to go again!

December is nearing, which means Christmas! Christmas is honestly my favourite holiday, I just love the lead up and feel of the festive season. It just has this lovely warmth and cosiness to it, with the hot drinks and all the winter wear. Snow snow snow, another reason to love winter! I really hope that this will be the year that we finally get a white Christmas.



Despite everyone loving Christmas for the presents and the festivities, a more important aspect of it is spending time with the ones you love. Its that time of year where you really appreciate the people around you and how lucky you really are.

         Maria (my twin) and I!  
                                                  Maria, Danielle, Brittany and I!


Another exciting thing about December is that I'm seeing Union J with my chummy (Danielle). We're so lucky that they are coming to our local town, only eleven more days to go, yaaaaay, its going to be amazing!

 
I hope you enjoyed this little update and are looking forward to Christmas as much as I am! Will get back to my beauty posts as soon as possible, have a few tutorials in mind as well as some reviews. Hopefully, I'll get some new beauty products for Christmas that I can share with you all! <3



Confessions of a beauty blogger!

Well hello to you dear reader chums!

Today I'm doing a tag like post about the confessions of a beauty blogger! I was tagged by the amazing Mel on Its me Mel, go check out her blog! Lets get started with the questions :)

1) How many hours a week do you spend writing/editing posts?

Ooooh this is a difficult one! I'm not too sure because some weeks I blog more than others to be honest, I should really make a schedule but I prefer to blog when things come to mind or an idea is fresh in my brain rather than creating something when I have no inspiration. If I was doing a favourites post or a makeup tutorial it would take more time than a tag post like this because I would need to take and edit the photos, write about it etc etc. I would say I spend a good 3-4  hours a week maybe more depending on how many blogs I write.

2) Are you a spender or saver?
 
I'm a bit of both! Sometimes when I go shopping I would easily splash out on things whereas other times I'll be really stingy and say 'you don't need that'. If there is something I really wanted I would save up for it! I am a bit of a shopaholic though so I have to restrict myself from buying things!
 
3) When is it easier to blog?
 
Its most easiest for me to blog in the evenings after school when I don't have much school work to do or on the weekends as I have more free time then. However, as I said before I don't like forcing ideas, I prefer when an idea springs to mind, meaning that sometimes decides when its easiest to blog.
 
4) What makes writing behind a computer so comfortable for you?
 
Hmm I guess its because I've always loved writing and having a blog gives me the opportunity to babble about things I love!
 
5) What is your worst make up/hair habit?
 
I would say my worst make up habit is making sure my winged liner is perfect everyday which is some challenge as it never goes even! For my hair habit I would say its sticking with the same hairstyle all the time rather than trying different looks.
 
6) What is one quote you wished the world lived by?
 
This quote has got me through so much which is 'Just keep swimming', originally from Finding Nemo, but Talia used to always say it. Talia Castellano will always be my idol, my inspiration, rest in paradise my angel <3
 
7) How long do you spend getting ready everyday?
For school I would say about over an hour as I have to do my skin care routine, my everyday make up look and my hair. My make up usually takes about 15-20 mins and depending on what I do to my hair the time varies! For nights out/ parties, I'd say about an hour and a half to two hours because I take forever! I have to make sure my nails/makeup/hair are perfect!
 
8) Who are your favourite bloggers?
 
My favourite bloggers are definitely Zoella and Louise, they are the reason I began blogging! I love how they call each other chummy, its too cute! They're my favourite youtubers too as well as Alfie, Tanya, Jim, pixiwoo etc :)
 
9) Who is a blogger that deserves more subscribers?
 
I would say Parie from Classandglitter as I always love reading her posts. She seems like a genuine, down to earth girl and I just love her blog!
 
10) What is one thing you are excited about in the upcoming year?
 
Going to Miranda Harts tour! I was finally able to get tickets when she released new dates and I'm literally soooo excited!! I'm like her biggest fan! Also turning 18 and finishing school, its really weird knowing this is my last year at school but I'm excited to see what the future holds :)
 
11) What is your most awkward blogging moment?
 
Oooh when I post a blog and read a bit of it over and realised that I hadn't spell checked it, meaning it makes no sense, hahaha!
 
12) How long does it take you to prepare a post?
 
It depends on the post really, for a tag post not very long as I just respond to the answers. However, if its a make up tutorial a couple of hours as I have to take all the pics, edit them and write about it!
 
13) Are you wearing trousers right now or jogging/pj bottoms?
 
I'm wearing my heart pj shorts!
 
14) What are you most proud of in your life?
 
I'm really proud of my GCSE and AS results  because I worked so hard and got the grades I wanted! Also I'm proud of my blog, even though its small I've found something that's truly made me happy!
 
Thank you for reading I hope you enjoyed! <3

#BritishBloggerSelection: Q&A/interview!

Well hello to you my reader chums!

As I missed week one of the #BritishBloggerSelection, I'm moving swiftly on to week 2! This week is a Q&A so hopefully this will help you learn more about all the other bloggers and I ! :)



Question one: Why do like blogging?
I like blogging because its a space where I can write down all my thoughts and ideas on products I've been loving or just anything in general. I've always loved writing and creating a blog gave me an opportunity to write again in my spare time. Whenever I blog, it makes me feel happy and always makes me smile, the blogging community is just an amazing place! Bit cheesy but its true :)
 
Question 2: How did you come up with your blog name?
Oooh this is a hard one! I have no idea, I think the name DellaLovesNutella,I just thought of one day and it just stuck in my mind that I thought I should use it for something. After I finally plucked up the courage and started my blog, this is the name I used because I just loved it and nutella is my favourite food.
 
Question 3: Where in the UK are you from?
I'm from Kent, which is in the South East of England.
 
Question 4: Favourite colour:
This definitely has be purple! I've always loved that colour, although when I was little it used to be yellow. Cute story: When my twin sister and I were younger she loved green and I loved yellow so all my things were yellow and hers were green. Then as we grew older my favourite colour was purple and hers was pink meaning the same thing happened!
 
Question 5: Do you like Lana Del Ray?
Hmm never really listened to her music that much to have an opinion. However I do love her song Summertime Sadness!
 
Question 6: Hidden talents that you have?
I'm not really sure if I have any hidden talents, however I get a lot of compliments on my make up by people so I guess that but its not really a hidden one.
 
Question 7: Celebrity crush?
Oooh Harry Styles and George Shelley! I'm a huge directioner and Jcat! Also I'm in love with Alfie from Pointlessblog.
 
Question 8: Favourite blog of all time?
Zoella and Sprinkleofglitter! Both of them were the reason I got into blogging.
 
Question 9: What made you want to join #BritishBloggerSelection?
I wanted to join because it would give me the chance to read even more blogs from the blogger community and find out about other bloggers.
 
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed and found out more about me! <3
