I'm a Beauty Blogger, Get Me Out Of Here!

Week 1: I’m A Beauty Blogger, Get Me Out Of Here!

Hey guys,

Last night in the U.K the new series of "I'm a celebrity,  get me out of here!" Started!  In honour of the new series my friends at  made this tag, which I was tagged in. There will be three parts of the tag one each week until the final of the show so I'm looking forward to taking part! :)

Week 1 – So heres my answers!  :)

1) You can only take ONE product into the jungle (aka your luxury item). What would you choose and why?
2) What would be your main pre jungle worry?
3) You only have five minutes to get ready before going into the jungle, what would be your quick beauty routine?
4) Last year we saw Helen Flanagan wearing her hair in a top bun. What would be your signature hairstyle?
5) For moral support, which female celebrity would you like to be in the jungle with you?
6) Everyone’s given a role in the camp. What lifestyle skill would you bring to the jungle?
7) What one thing about being a beauty blogger sometimes makes you want to scream ‘Get Me Out Of Here’?
8) Challenge – This is a once in a life time opportunity. You’re up for a trial to face your fears or try something new, what would you choose to do and why?

1) Well the idea of being on TV for three weeks without make up freaks me out so I do want a foundation, however its Australia at the start of their summer and I have very pale skin so a sun cream would be best so to bring these items togheter I would take a tinted moisturiser with a SPF.
2) My main pre jungle worry would be living with complete strangers and being filmed 24/7
3) 5 minutes,  I have that much time anyway in the morning so quick foundation lightly brushed on, pressed poweder, grey eyeshadows, eyeliner, mascara and lip balm!
4) My hairstyle would be a messy bun because in the heat I have to have my hair swept back!
5) I would like Taylor Swift to join me for moral support!  
6) My role in camp would be the supporter, I'd listen to everyone's problems and hopefully try and keep everyone calm and friendly! 
7) The one thing about being a beauty blogger the makes me want to scream "Get Me Out Of Here" is time, trying to be organised with my blog on top of my priorities currently like my A Levels! 

8) I wouldn't face my fears through choice so I defiantly would choose the cyclone challenge!

Bargin of the week!

Hey guys!

I have officialy started my Christmas shopping! However to buy for everyone on my pocket money alone is though especially as a student so I am on the lookout for as many offers as possible over the nexr few months and I will share these with you (and my blog isn't a bargin thrifty blog but I am a student who is constantly broke and I am fed up of bloggers just taking about high end make up and unaffordable products)

Anyone for my first bargin of the week is from WhSmith!
In their gift range they have a new owl range called 'bramble wood'  with things like mugs and notebooks! This is perfect because I know so many people who are obsessed with owls right now.
I am not sure how long this offer will be available for but I first saw it this Saturday if that helps, so I'd recommed you get down their quickly!
So in this owl range they have a medium sized owl teddy. He has a bright and fun print. In bright purple and orange I love the colours.
This teddy is usually priced at £7.99 but at the moment its only £3.99 with any other gift purchase!  Bargin!!
A lot of their gifts are around £4 so you could get two presents for £7.99 the pice of the owl teddy normally!  So I really recommend this offer! :D

Love Charlotte

Layered Winter outfit 1: 7.11.2013 OOTD

Hey guys, I thought I' d do my first outfit of the day post and I will also do a few posts over the next few weeks about layer up to keep warm in the cold winter but still looking  little stylish! (This is something that with the quality of clothes on the high street is very useful because nothing keeps me warm)

Anyway in today's outfit I have three layers on then my coat and my scarf whilst I was out! The first is a plain white vest top, then my black denim shirt topped with a black and purple block knitted jumper!

So many people say to me wearing a knitted jumper is fine and question why I am still cold but most high street stores the knitted jumpers are pretty thin (the same as a normal t shirt) the only difference is the material,  this is why I need to layer!

Teamed with the spike necklace and my biker boats I thoughts the dark colours looked amazing and I maneged to stay so warm and cozy all day but I was still confident in my outfit! :)

Shirt: new look sale in January
Jumper:Internationale in march
Necklace: New look sale last month!

Hope you enjoyed this kinda of post let me know if its been at all usefull! :)

Love Charlotte

P.s watcha think of the Miley style buns haha? X

P.S.S excuse them poorquality and range of photos once again x

Top Tip Tuesday: DIY tinted moisturiser

Hey guys,
After my top tip post last week on how to make your own gel eyeliner (read it here) I thought I would start a new series called "top tip Tuesday" full of different simple tips these maybe DIYs or discounts I want to share with you or anything! Let me know in the comments if there is anything you think I could include in this series.

So this weeks top tip is another DIY.
I recently discovered a brilliant easy way to make your own tinted moisturiser.
All you need is:
  • a old pot or tub
  • a teaspoon
  • a moisturiser
  • and a pressed powder foundation

I decided to us my old Clinique moisturiser because I had loads left so only used half for a tinted moisturiser and I still have some left. I love this moisturiser because it feels so natural and it is SPF 15 which is always re- assuring.
I am using the collection 2000 pressed powder because it is too light  and doesn't work with my foundation very well anymore but apart from that I love it, I find it really easy to blend.

I had just run of my trusty carmex so I decided to us out my carmex lip balm pot and use this. Plus carmex pots are so handbag friendly that its perfect for a small pot of tinted moisturiser.
First thing you must do using the top end of the teaspoon (the handle) carefully break up the pressed powder into very very VERY lose pigments.
Then using the spoon you must spoon out some of the moisturiser into your empty and clean pot , just spoon until the pot is not quite full.
Next you pour or spoon the broken up powder into you new moisturiser pot and mix and stir until all of the tiny grains of foundation are gone.
You are now ready to use your new tinted moisturiser! This is so easy and effective! let me know in the comments if you try this and what you think! m

2 Eyeshadows, 2 looks!

Hey guys,

for this looks I am using two eye shadows colours and basic black and white! The white I am using is a light shimmer but you can use any shade, mine are from an old "cute or what" palate from Boots (a big drugstore in the U.K)

The first look is very heavy , more for a night out. The black eye shadow would be applied very thickly and in the same motion as eyeliner when do a large upwards flick, then the white is just applied in the inner corner and upwards. I would accompany this look with a berry or more purple lipstick and heavy lashes!

This second look (apologies for the blurry photo) is more of a simple look perfect for everyday if you love focus on the eye. It is effectively a softer shadow look. For this I simply applied the black shadow just along the lash line then the white is once again applied for the inner corner but this time also along the crease line. Lastly blend the black and white together. I would accompany this look with a nude lip-gloss or just a lip balm to keep it soft and simple.
Hope you enjoyed this kind of post, let me know in the comments

Autumn in my town!

Hey guys,

I live in a little welsh town called Caerphilly, most famous for Caerphilly castle , the cheese and Tommy Copper!

I have been loving to golden leaves falling around the castle so I took so photos! Also every year the council put on a massive fireworks display in the castle, this year I attend the event with my other half so I will share with you some of these pictures.

I find the change in seasons makes everything look so pretty and really makes you appreciate where you live! How is autumn affecting your town?

Review: Charles Worthington Volume blow dry spray!

Hey guys,

I recently found my volume spary that I had abandoned (god knows why) so I have a new love for it!
I have always loved Charles Worthington's products and this is know exception! 
When you first spray onto the roots it does make your hair look a little greesy however this effect doesn't last for long.
It smells absolutely gourgous which is always a plus, this also means once the smell of your shampoo from your last wash has gone it still smells amazing!
Onto the purpose of the product I find one yo have brushed it in it makes your hair so shiny (in a good way not the grease shine), it gives your hair a new lease of life and gives it a bounce however I do always expect a little more volume however it still makes your hair look amazing! I also love this product because it is also a heat protection spray! If its the day after a shower and you aren't a big one for dry shampoos then this volume spray works wonders!  :) overall I thoroughly recommend! 

P.s I am not being paid to promote or review this product this is purely my opinion

P.p.s please follow my newTwitter account I just set up fpr this blog and channel @afashionoddity
