Merry Christmas!

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere!
Where have you been you ask? Well where to start, December has been a very busy month for me with moving house and not having internet aside from my phone because of this I've had no time to blog. During December I also went to London for a few days another reason I was busy and now its Christmas I will have plenty of time to blog and I will make it my goal to blog at least twice a week!
so with that said...
 Merry Christmas, Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Conceal my flaws | 17 stay 18hr concealer

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere, Like all teenagers I get spots which can really damage your confidence especially when going to school and seeing that one girl with flawless skin sighhh..however my fellow spot haters I have found THE perfect concealer.

I came across this when I was browsing a few blogs and decided to give it a whirl, It has been compared to the Nars creamy concealer and I can see why.
On the skin this concealer is the perfect colour match for my skin, is nourishing and offers amazing coverage!
For a mere price tag of a few pounds whats not to love.

Whats your staple concealer?

That mug of yours | Cath Kidston

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere, Autumn is in full swing so what better but to have a new mug for all the warm drinks on cold days to come!
I bought this gorgeous Cath Kidston mug whilst out shopping with my mum, I am happy to say we are beginning to have a mix & match collection of them.

The design is called 'spray flowers' and is a 'Crush' mug rather than a smaller tea mug because... well I love a big mug of tea. Whilst typing this I have already been sipping from it.. as well as being midway through downton and can safely it's as perfect as a mug can be. 

Have you got a favourite mug?

Drowning in words...

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere, Books are things I love whether it be a romance or a dark thriller I love them all however, I never talk about my love for books on here and My blog being just as much a 'lifestyle' blog as it is a beauty I feel I should add in a few book reviews here and there. 

Do you agree? Comment below what books I should review or whether I should interpret 
Lifestyle post's another way?

What does autumn mean to you?

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere, Its that time of year again cold nights, dark skies and trails of golden leaves that give that satisfying crunch under each step taken.

Autumn to me is the prettiest time of year that fills me with excitement leading up to Christmas, Full of times I can spend with my friends, cuddling my boyfriend or just having a cuppa with my mum whilst watching soaps on a cold night.

What is autumn to you?

Just a candle kinda gal...

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere, My for love candles is not least I don't think it's something I hide, so when I read about Kringle candles My instant reaction was to place an order!

 I placed an order of  three daylight candles in the flavours...Or scents? 
Watermelon, Petals in the water & Mango.

Each candle comes in a little plastic holder and lid with the prettiest label on. 
Once lit each of the candles are supposed to last 12 hours but I personally think they last longer and fill the room with their own original smell unlike Yankee candles which never seem to make the room smell as good as the candle does. 
My favourite of these candles is the watermelon one it's fresh and sweet but not sickly! 
I look forward to making another order!  
Do you love candles?

E&J Crafts | *

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere, Why do I keep disappearing from the blogging world you ask? 
Well recently cannot stop thinking about my school work, blogging is on the bottom of my to do list and as much as I love blogging I never know what to blog about, I'm running low on idea's.

All that aside on to the lovely E&J crafts.
I recently received a great sponsor pack from E&J crafts, It included;
1.  Small Jute bag.
2. Two handmade bracelets. (1 Woven & 1 beaded)
3. Three Handcrafted cards.

Each item I received was packaged beautifully, and I received them all super quickly! 
My favorite from all the items was the Jute bag, The fabric horse is just adorable!
The two bracelets I gave to my boyfriend as he wears shall we say Hipster bracelets more than I do.
The cards I received are so delicately put together and I can't wait to give one to my Friend for her 16th! 

E&J crafts can be found at the links below;

Purity Cleanser | Review

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere, Philosophy is a brand I've been dying to try for what feels like forever so I finally purchased a miniature 'Purity' face cleanser, I only purchased the small one because I have so many facial products to get through.
 Over the past two weeks I've tested this out so I could give a fair review.
I personally don't think this cleanser is as nice as Liz Earle cleanse and polish However, it comes a close second. The cleanser itself isn't thick it's alot like a cleansing milk which I prefer as it seems to feel like it's actually removing my makeup rather than cling to your face feeling thick, It also doesn't sting my eyes or feel to harsh on my skin so is perfect for those who struggle with having sensitive skin.
'Purity' doesn't dry out my skin, it leaves it feeling baby soft, My only down point is the smell it reminds me of coconut mixed with clay? Anyone else think that? no just me.
Overall It's an amazing cleanser, pretty basic when it comes to improving my skin but I wasn't expecting a miracle.

Have you tried anything new recently?

Gone for so long...

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere, It's been awhile since I last posted, I could list excuse after excuse but I'd rather not bore you lovely's to death! So I thought a post was necessary to tell you I will be back posting in the next few days.
Meanwhile you can follow me on Instagram @ItsAimsYh

Comment your Instagram name and I will follow back...

DIY: Whipple cases...

Heya guys and gals of the blogosphere, Dabbling in the world of arts and crafts is something I occasionally do, I've gone from creating my own jewelry to making my own case's that would cost a fortune to buy from a place like Etsy. 
Making 'Whipple effect' phone cases is possibly one of the easiest things to do, 
You will need:

  • White, pink or chocolate brown silicone decoden OR silicone caulk. 
  • Mixed cabochons such as bows, characters ect.
  • Clear or plain case/s of your choice 
  • A piping bag and nozzles in the design you want.
1. Grab your phone case and place it on a stable area were it won't move.
2. Plan out where our cabochons will be going on your case.
3. Place the silicone caulk into a piping bag and start to pipe a 'whipped cream' effect onto your cases.
4.  Place your cabochons onto the case, the silicone decoden will act as a glue and keep the cabochons glued down.
5. Wait until dry and Enjoy your case!

Better images will be uploaded once my camera cable has arrived, I couldn't not post for any longer thats why I'm using an Instagram Picture.
I will be back to posting regulary Asap!
whats your favourite craft?
