#1 monthly fashion obsession!

This month (in my slightly obsessive mind) is all about khaki greens and leather accessories. Maybe I’m a bit late for this trend but I have been in love with this sleeveless V-necked H&M dress; it’s so pretty and at an acceptable length! I find it feminine but a little bit tough, which is great for all those girls out there who aren’t all pink and fluffy!!

Continuing on with the ‘tough’ look I decided that it would go great with a cropped leather jacket, (which is far too expensive for me :( ), some black suede lace up shoe boots, a suede clutch, and lastly to ward off the non-existent British sun, tinted sunglasses!

Anyone else share my khaki green dress obsession? have you got any weird new fashion obsessions lately?

Product review!

Product Review!!

Recently I went out to the high street and purchased a couple of things I’d wanted to try out for a while. Most of the products were cheap and affordable.
The first thing I bought was the MUA lipstick, shade 4. It’s a pity these products don’t have names as the quality of this lipstick is amazing. It’s so creamy and well pigmented, that I sometimes find myself forgetting to apply lip balm beforehand. It’s also extremely affordable costing only £1.00! This particular shade is a soft peach colour that would suit many skin tones and is a perfect spring colour too!
Another product I bought is the maybelline collosal volume mascara, which I bought for £7.19 from superdrug. I like this mascara but its nothing I would rave about. I regret not buying the water proof version as this easily smudges if you get into any contact with water. Apart from that though its good for extra volume and to make your lashes look fuller and longer. Its also fairly clump free and the packaging is cute!
I also got the new amazing Barry M nail gelly effect varnish, which I’ve been wanting for ages now! I got it in green berry, which is a lovely mint green, perfect for spring/summer, because it looks like the sea! I put it on not too soon and it did last for quite a while (5 days) without chipping or peeling, considering I had no top coat on! However if I did have top coat on it would have probably lasted for longer than 12 days!
The last product I will be talking about is the MUA cream blush in bittersweet, which looks super florecent pink in the packaging but is more of a soft pink on application! Usually cream blusher can be doubled up as a lipstain too, but I wouldn’t recommend that when using this certain product. It can look really dried and cheap on the lip.
And that’s the lot! Thanks for reading!
Have you owned any of these products? And what did you think?

‘the boy no one loved’ by Casey Watson book review

‘the boy no one loved’ by Casey Watson

‘Casey Watson is a specialist foster carer and an author at the same time. As a specialist foster carer she works with profoundly damaged children, seeing each child through a specific behavioural modification programme, at the end of which they will hopefully be in the position to be returned either back to their family or into mainstream foster care.’

When it comes to books about abused and abandoned children, I always seem to be quite sceptical. I seem to think that they all tend to be quite extreme and the characters always out of hand. However this book completely changed my mind about these books. I think this is an amazing book for both girls and boys, in their mid-teens, who are looking for an emotional book to read. It’s very easy to read and easy to understand and has such a gripping story to go with it, so it’s great if your just getting into books (again).

The book highlights the problems that our society faces today with child abuse and abandonment and how small things make a big difference. As a teenager one of the things that I really want to do when I’m older is adopt a child, as I believe that every child has the right to live life like any other and to try and find un-conditional love where others have failed to provide it.

The book also shows how strong and patient foster families are and how hard fostering actually is. Children and parents (and some teenagers like me who still watch cbbc!) are constantly being given an idea that care homes and foster families are all “happily ever after”, in the TV programs that are aired such as ‘Tracy beaker’ and ‘the dumping ground’, and when in actual fact they really aren’t.

One more thing that also made me choose this book to read (apart from the fact that I bought it for £1.00!) is that all Casey Watson’s books are real and they have happened before to countless children all over the world.
Has anyone read this book before? And what did you think of it?
