How to get really BIG lashes (with one of the cheapest mascaras)

I personally don’t think you need to spend a lot to get good mascara. I also think that depending on your lashes, different mascaras suit different eyes. Having searched high and low for the mascara that will maximise my eyelashes, I feel that Maybelline really hits the nail on the head. Because I have fairly long lashes, I like mascaras with fairly big brushes. Maybelline’s Colossal Go Extreme Mascara in Leather Black is AMAZING. Unlike lots of new high street mascaras being brought out at the moment with new innovative brushes being sold at £8 or £9 (which I am ever so slightly sceptical about) this mascara is ONLY £6.99! And the brush is just lovely and big perfect for huge eyelashes.

I normally start by coating the tops of the lashes to ensure that they are completely covered, especially when wearing eyeshadow powder that may drop down on to the lashes. Next, take your brush to the roots of your lashes and shake the brush gently to get a nice thick effect at the base of the eyelashes. then brush upwards a few times. Make sure you brush outwards as well to get the lashes in the corner of the eyes. – I personally think this makes the eyes look really pretty. Leave each eye for about 10 seconds then do a quick second coat, but not too much because you don’t want clumpy eyelashes!

If you want a gorgeous huge eyelash effect – I highly recommend. And why not for only £6.99!

Peace and love and huge lashes x

Somerley Tea Party – Happy Festival Review

Its-Okay-to-Be-a-Glow-Stickme

What a lovely, happy, pretty festival.

This weekend I visited the magical enchanting woodland party spot that was Somerley Tea Party – a boutique underground electronic music festival. STP is a new festival, on the outskirts of the New Forest, taking place in the heart of the grounds of Old Somerley.

The festival location was absolutely perfect. There were high walls surrounding the main grass area, or you could walk through the walls and off in to the enchanted woods, full of decoration, stalls and cocktail bars. With a great line up featuring artists like Eats Everything and Ben Pearce, it was a sunny portal transporting me right in to a summery world of fun and dancing.

And what a perfect place to wear my gorgeous summery Ragged Priest Sample Sale jacket, which arrived that very morning (as seen above – bargain!!)… I was definitely in my element.

Best things about Somerley Tea Party

  • It was sunny! – OK, the organisers didn’t control this… but it definitely kick started everyone’s summers!
  • No drinks were over £5 and water was completely free – Nothing worse than having to pay extortionate amounts at festivals for water when it’s hot and everyone is getting dehydrated
  • Obviously the music…. great line up, amazing summer vibes
  • The location – Couldn’t have asked for a better location for a one day festival… gorgeously decorated… spacious… (woods were very Boomtown-like)

– The festival could have done with a couple more food stalls, there were only a couple and I love my festival food(!)… and maybe a few more toilets, but they are my only reservations!

A glorious little festival… I would absolutely recommend going in 2015!
