Spilling out my soul to my little blog.

HELLO HUMANS! This is my favourite post by far at the moment! On Thursday 15th March, myself and Abiee went to see Niall Horan at the Manchester O2 Arena. And it was EPIC!

We first spent the day mooching around and also had a cocktail at Gino D'Acampo's Pizza & Prosecco Bar, which was GORGE!

And then we decided to go to the venue around half 5/6ish. It was already PACKED! The line was sooooo long and then eventually, after queuing in the freezing cold, we were inside! I spent £65 on merch...

I literally have no regrets about that. But what I DO regret, is leaving my effing Tour Book on the bathroom sink FIVE MINUTES AFTER PAYING 15 QUID FOR IT! LIVID! A N Y W A Y...

ISN'T IT GORGEOUS?! Look familiar...?

Yes, I now match with bae. (Did I really call him that? Yes, yes I did). 


Julia Michaels was the opening act and I forgot how much I LOVE her! She was incredible! And then this man FINALLY came on...
Oh em gee! He was FUCKING AMAZING! I was literally blown away!! I got lost in his performance so many times, that poor Abiee had to keep snapping me back to reality!!

 That boy certainly knows how to put on a performance. I can - hands down - say that this was the BEST CONCERT I have ever been to! It was honestly so amazing. He made us laughed, made me want to cry, and made me fall in love with him all over again.

I wish I could go again and watch him. It was honestly such an incredible concert, and if you're going to see him soon, you're in for a real treat. PS. Pls can we talk about HIS OUTFIT. He looked FAF!

When the concert was over, Abiee took the train home, and I decided to stay over in a hotel near the train station. The room was so nice! But because I find it difficult sleeping in hotel rooms alone, it took me so goddamn long to get to sleep. But once I did, I was gone for the night! Then I got drenched walking from the train station, to my mum's house. NOT FUN!

Okay so that's my little post about my Niall Horan experience. Let me know if you've seen him yet and what you thought!!

Hello Humans! I'm finally back with a brand new Music Monday! This one is different because this isn't my 2018 Playlist, it's from my Untitled Playlist. So here are the songs I've been loving...

1. ...Ready For It? - Taylor Swift

Okay so a few years ago my love for Taylor Swift died and then recently, my love has slowly started again. Gorgeous was the first one I became obsessed with and then ...Ready for it came around. I think I've finally started loving her again and I really need to sit down and properly listen to her album. Click here to listen to ...Ready For It on Spotify.

2. Still Falling For You - Bridget Jones's Baby

This is an old favourite that I was so happy I could add to my new playlist and fall in love with again. Bridget Jones is my FAVOURITE trilogy and this song just pretty much sums up my favourite couple: Bridget Jones and Mark Darcy. AND I love Ellie Goulding also, so the fact that she was the main singer from the film is everything. Click here to listen to Still Falling For You on Spotify.

3. 18 - One Direction

I mean... Do I really need to justify this?! 18 and Fools Gold are my two favourite songs from the album Four. This song is just such a perfect love song, and I feel like if the lyrics were more relatable, I'd have it as my first dance. Honestly. Click here to listen to 18 on Spotify.

4. Wild Love - James Bay

JAMES BAY IS FREAKING BACK!! I LOVED THE CALM AND THE CHAOS! And now that he's back, I am so, SO happy! Wild Love has such a different tone and he's got a whole new sound and I am LOVING IT! I cannot wait to hear the rest of the album and see the journey he's been through since the last album. Click here to listen to Wild Love on Spotify.

And those are the four songs that I've been loving! I'll be back on Wednesday with a brand new post...

Hello Humans! As Sunday is my brother's birthday (and Mother's Day - love you madre!), I thought I'd do a Flashback Friday based on his wedding...

My brother and his wife got married on 12th August 2018 in Cyprus and it was such an amazing day. It was perfect.

This was my favourite day from the wedding. All the family was there, everyone was together and everyone was just so happy and laid back.

This is probably my favourite picture from the day (no offence Newlyweds lol).

Dad, brother and mum.

A cute (and rare) sibling photo.

So for a little rundown and backstory... my brother got married in Cyprus, Paphos on 12th August 2015. He got married at the Capo Bay Hotel where he was staying at the time. It was beautiful wedding and my sister-in-law looked amazing. Obvs stole the show! (Soz boys and your pink dicky bows!) I made an entire video on my trip to Cyprus, which can be found here. One of my favourite trips I've had. There were a lot of drunken nights, laughter and inside jokes.

Hello Humans! Today I thought I'd do a post all about choosing the perfect foundation for my skin tone. I'm extremely pale and I find choosing foundations really difficult for me.

The foundations I tested are:

  • Maybelline Superstay 24 Hour Foundation - True Ivory
  • L'Oreal True Match - 1N
  • L'Oreal Infalliable 24 Hours - Porcelain

Okay and the foundation swatches are in order from the bullet points (left to right)

Soph from Sophdoesnails suggested that the Maybelline Super Stay foundation in the shade True Ivory is a perfect match for her, and I always thought we had similar skin tone. However, when it came, I noticed it was quite orange on my skin and in the bathroom lighting at work, it was extremely noticeable. So that was a big no for me.

If you had seen my most recent vlog with Joanne, we talked about our skin tones and which foundations suit them better. Joanne lives by the True Match foundation, however after applying it the other week, I noticed that the shade 1N had the same effect on me as the Maybelline foundation.

So for now, although I'm still not 100% satisfied, I'm using the Infalliable foundation in the shade Porcelain. I feel like it is still slightly orange, but not as noticeable and it's really stressing me out.

If you're pale skinned and have had the same problem, please leave a comment letting me know which foundations worked for you - I'd REALLY appreciate it!!

I'll be back Friday with a brand new post;

Hello Humans! I'm back with another makeup-style post, however this time it's a review! I'm planning on starting new sections on my blog, and reviewing different products is definitely something I'm wanting to do. So let's get started!

My cousin Amy bought me Urban Decay's Troublemaker Mascara and All Nighter Setting Spray for my birthday, with the intention of me reviewing it. I did do a video that I have filmed and edited, however I didn't want to upload it because I felt like it was rushed, and a bit crap really. (I'm not a beauty vlogger and doing those kinds of videos make me nervous!) So I thought I'd just upload my review here, rather than doing both.

Troublemaker Mascara

Amy decided that it'd be best to get me the sample sizes (good choice) so I can test them first and then decide later on if I wish to buy the full product.

This mascara is claiming to make your lashes super fat, super long and sex proof. Obvs I'm not testing the third one 🙄, however I tested the rest of them! The packaging is a holographic effect which I like, and I deffo think that Joanne would approve.

Here are my lashes before applying the mascara:

A lil blurry, but you get the picture! So I applied the first coat on one eye and then compared them.

Okay so I wasn't overly impressed, I'm not going to lie. Yes my bottom lashes do look longer and they're a lot darker (duh Brogan, that's what mascara does 🙄). However, I wouldn't say they were super long and definitely not super fat, like the box claimed.

Okay so because it sounds like I totally hate the mascara, I will say, that I LOVE how my lashes do look! They have definitely lengthened my bottom lashes which I like, however I feel like my top lashes look just as they did before. 

So I then went and did another coat on each eye and this was the end result:

I also want to point out that, as you can see on the last picture, this mascara is quite clumpy. So if you don't like that effect in a mascara, then this isn't the one for you. Overall, like I have said, I do like how my lashes look and I do think it's a good mascara. It doesn't do everything it claims to do on the box, but it is a good mascara!

All Nighter; Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

Lol at the teddys, vision board and the pile of clothing in the background. This was supposed to be an aesthetic shot of the spray in the shot, but because this is me and my life is a fail, it didn't work. 😩

ANYWAY! The packaging for this setting spray is GORGE!! A simple matte black packaging with lilac writing. LAHV IT! Obviously I didn't take pictures for me testing this, because... how do you show it works????

So this claims to keep your makeup looking flawless all day. I wore it all day yesterday and can confirm that my makeup DID in fact look pretty much the same as when I applied the setting spray. Although - HANDS UP! I will admit, I've never actually used a setting spray before in my LIFE, so wasn't really expecting that much from it, due to having no experience with them. BUT it's a really nice spray that feels dewy when you first apply it, and then it literally soaks into your skin and you don't even notice it's on! I did think my face felt tighter when it completely dried, but I don't know if that's what it's supposed to do or if I imagined it... 👀

Overall, I would definitely recommend the setting spray.

Aaaand that's everything! If you've used any of these products, please be sure to leave a comment on your review of these products! If you have any questions, also leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my review! 

I'll be back in a few days! BYE!! 👋🏻

REVIEW: Giovanna Fletcher's "Some Kind Of Wonderful"!

Lizzy and Ian have been a couple since their first day at university. Now, after celebrating a decade together, everyonethinks they're about to get engaged. A romantic escape to Dubai is the perfect moment, but instead of the proposal Lizzy hopes for, Ian reveals he's not sure he even wants her anymore.

Lizzy is heartbroken. But through the tears, she realises this is her chance to seize the opportunities she missed as Ian's other half. But what does she want? How much of her is really Lizzy, and how much was Ian's influence? Determined to discover who she is at heart, Lizzy sets out to rediscover the girl she was before - and in the meantime, have a little fun . . .

My Review: (Possible spoilers???)This book to me was like a self-healing book. Something I believe that anybody needs if they feel they've hit rock bottom when their relationship falls apart. It reminds you that it's not the end of the world and that it's not the end of everything. That relationships actually take up a small fragment of who you are. This book screams: You've Got This! And I love that.

I ADORE Lizzy! I thought she was brave and to be honest, hated Ian from the start anyway. She don't need him. And I love how she stepped out of her comfort zone and tried new things in her process of "finding herself again". I like that she rebuilt a friendship that was technically falling apart when she didn't even realise it. And also, I love that she finally learned to depend on herself when things went shit, rather than someone else.

Amazing book! So sad it ended.

*    *    *    *

And I've decided that I wanted to start a book club, to encourage both you guys and myself to read! I love reading, I used to be a major bookworm but with work and exercise, I've slowly lost that. So if you're up for it - let me know!!

I'm acting more enthusiastic than I am, because I'm currently ill in bed. BUUUT I haven't done one of these posts in a while, and I really wanted to post one for you all. :)

1. For You - Rita Ora ft. Liam Payne

OH MY GOD THIS SONG! AND THIS MUSIC VIDEO! Look at the chemistry between these two! Seriously, WOW. I love this song so much and the idea of my queen and a member of my favourite band doing a duet has made my life! (Sounds dramatic but). I read the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, but have only watched one of the films. Because I love Rita, I really want to watch the second one and eventually the third. But seriously, you will ship these two instantly by watching this video (soz Chezza).

2. IDGAF - Dua Lipa

This was a music video I really appreciated, you know? A music video all about self love and accepting yourself. I also feel like Dua has been around for ages, but she's currently nominated for a Brit Award of Best British Breakthrough, so. I love Dua and the music she's bringing out. I find them relatable and authentic.

3. Rewrite The Stars - Zac Efron ft. Zendaya

I know, I know. Myself and everybody else are talking about this film. BUT IT'S SO GOOD! I am obsessed with the soundtrack, I listen to it once a day at least! (Literally listening to it now lol). I love the vibe and the whole storyline. The music is practically iconic and Hugh Jackman is bae. I heard this song before I watched the film and it instantly made me excited to watch it!

4. Pray - Sam Smith

Let's be real: Sam Smith came back with a fucking bang! I love this song because it's so real and he doesn't hold back with saying that the world is currently a disaster. I also love how zen he is right now also. His music just gets better and better as he releases more songs! Honestly, are you even British if you haven't listened to Sam Smith?

5. These Days - Rudimental, Jess Glynne and Macklemore.

This is a brand new find for me and I loved it instantly. It literally hit me instantly and it made me zone out. Tbh, a lot of Jess Glynne's songs make me do that, and I wasn't disappointed! It's such a raw song and real. I honestly love it. There's not much I can say about this, because it's a new find.

And those are the songs I've been loving lately. Let me know in the comments which songs you've been loving.
