Book review:The Fault In Our Stars-John Green

Well hello to you my reader chums! It's book review time again. I do love a good read, as you can tell by the title I'm going to be telling you all about The fault in our stars by John Green.
I've heard so many people rave about it and its definitely worth the hype. The story is told from the perspective of a teenage girl who has terminal cancer. The description of her everyday life really helps you appreciate being healthy and the everyday things like walking up stairs which Hazel (girl telling the tale) is unable to easily. Hazel gives an insightful view of her life, how it is living with cancer and the journey she takes. The novel is filled with humour and sadness. 'Cancer perks' are what she calls the things she acquires because of her illness, which adds a burst of light humour on the subject. The way she describes the story really tugs at the heart strings and you really feel her emotion and pain.Not going to lie I cried whilst reading it! 

The moment she meets Augustus waters  was just perfect. I think all girls who read this book want an Augustus waters in their life. All the moments that they spent together are just so magical, it makes you the reader really happy for them. All the struggles they face through after they met, they do together. It's such a beautiful romantic time when they're together. Hazel talks a lot about her favourite book-An imperial infliction, which her and Augustus again share together. He's just the perfect boy anyone could wish for. Each conversation they has ends with okay? Okay. Their relationship is so precious and it makes you fall in love with both characters. 

It has a rather unexpected ending in my opinion, I thought it would end completely different. However, I can't express to you how amazingly written this whole novel is. Through all the quirky conversations, the heart breaks, the beautiful moments life brings, it really shows you how special life is. It has it's ups and downs, but through them you become who you are. 

Honestly one of the best novels I've read, beautifully tragic, a must read! I'd recommend it to every single one of you! If you want a book that you will smile, cry and want to read over and over, this is for you <3 

Thankyou for reading, I hope you enjoyed <3

December favourites

Well hello to you my reader chums! As were in a new month well new year, it's favourites time! I don't really have many favourites for December as it was quite a busy month with the finishing of school work and all the Christmas shopping. 

If you're looking for a new mascara or kohl liner, here are my December beauty favourites.

December favourites
Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'Eternal Gold'

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'Eternal Gold'

 I've been loving using this as a base, it really helps keep the eye shadow last longer and give a bit of glitter to the look. Gotta love some sparkle in your life! 

Boots lip balm

Boots Lip Balm 

It came in a set of three with two other flavours. As soon as I got it, I used it straight away. The lip balm has a lovely consistency which really helps moisturise your lips as well as having a lovely smell. The packaging to them was really cute as well with sweet animals on them. 

Great lash mascara Maybelline

Great Lash Mascara by Maybelline

I bought this as I wanted to test out a new mascara and it turns out I adore it! As I have really annoying lashes that don't stay curled easily, it's hard to find a mascara that will help this. Great lash does this, it keeps my lashes long and curled with them still looking natural. Also, I realised after I got home I bought the brownish-black, at first I thought I wouldn't like it as I usually stick to black mascaras. However, to me it makes my lashes look more natural and looks as good as any black mascara. 

Metallic Cream in Gold Rush by Collection

I've been using this on the centre of my eyelids to brighten them and add some sparkle like I did in my Christmassy tutorial. It's a lovely texture and really easy to apply. 

Rimmel kohl liner in black

Rimmel Scandals Eyes Liner in Black

I've had this liner for a while but got back into using it lately. I've been lining my tight line with it, to make my lashes look thicker/fuller.

The Fault in Our Stars book

Fault in our Stars by John Green book

I finally got around to read it and it's honestly one of the best books I've read. I'll have a review up on it soon. Such a beautifully tragic novel.

That's all my favourites, thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed it! <3 

Sales shopping haul!

Well hello to you my reader chums! Thought I begin the new year with a good old haul for you all! 2013 had its ups and downs, but I've had the support of my friends and family through it all. I hope 2014 brings happiness and joy to all my readers! Determined to make this my year, do what makes me happy and stop worrying about everything. 

On Saturday I headed up to Bluewater with a couple of my best friends to hit the sales! We were there for ten hours, was a tiring but hilarious day! 
Here's everything I bought: 
The first place we headed was House of Fraser as me and Mel were determined to get our hands on the naked palette. Sadly in the urban decay section they were all out of the naked palettes. However the lovely lady there told us that the smoked palette was quite similar to the naked palette with it having some of the colours. Also it came with a travel size version of the primer potion and a black liner in perversion. 
The palette has several other colours which are beautifully pigmented and lovely colours to use for smokey eyes, hence the name of the palette-smoked. Also it comes with a booklet for tutorials for different looks. It cost me £35, I'm so happy to finally have my first urban decay product! 
The next place I bought something was lush where they had a 50% sale. I bought two of these soaps one for me and ones for Danielle. It's called angels delight and it smells divine, just like sweeties! I was really hoping to buy some of their face masks but they were out of stock. 
Another shop I got something in was superdrug. Mel and I literally ran in hoping they stocked sleek as the one near us doesn't. We were so happy to see that they did! I then went and bought their blush in rose gold. 

The last thing I purchased in Bluewater was this gorgeous jumper in forever 21. I got it in the bigger size because it looked better slouchier on me. It's honestly so soft and I love this pretty light pink colour. 

When I was there I saw these cute ankle boots in new look. 
Unfortunately they didn't have my size, however the next day I went to my local new look who also didn't have my size, meaning I ended up ordering them online. I think they're so classy and would be really cute with a skirt and tights. 
When I was in my local new look I also bought this sweet collared top, another one to add to my collection of collared tops! 
Not going to lie, I have an obsession with them! I absolutely love this one though and it's was only a tenna. 

The other dayI headed up to the shops again as I wanted to get something to help my skin as I've noticed my pores have been really noticeable lately and wanted to unclog them. 
I picked up this face wash by Garnier, I've only used it twice and I'm already noticing the difference! 
The last thing I bought was this bb cream by maybelline. I've wanted to try this for ages so I'm really glad to of got my hand on it. 

Thankyou for reading, I hope you enjoyed! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and spent it with those who are closest to you. This year was a special one for me, I felt really blessed with everything I received and to spend that time with my family <3
