College Is Bigger Than Elephants.

Hello Woggles! :D

Today was my college induction day and boy oh boy was it an eye opener.First off,the place is HUGE.Loads of different buildings on one big complex..on the plus side,there's lots of food around.And I like food.

I was going to do a video about my college bag but my camera doesn't agree..neither does Windows Movie Maker.Therefore,I'll have to give it a miss..there's always next year! Maybe it's for the best anyway,since I've never been before.

So far though,my list stands as followed :

-Satchel bag
-Pencil case (Rubber,Pencils,Art Pencils,Pens,Ruler,Calculator,Sharpener etc)
-Glasses
-Student ID on Lanyard
-Bus pass
-Clear coloured pop-fastened folder
-Cosmetic case (Concealer,Anti-bac,Hand cream,Plasters,Hearing Aid batteries,Mirror etc)
-Pukka notebook
-Wallet

How does that sound to you? Any suggestions? Let me know in the comments! :)

I hope you're all doing very well today aswell,I might add.The sun has been shining brightly in Cornwall.

Lots of love and cuddles.

Top Ten Makeup Websites!

Hey guys! I'd placed an order on Elf today and it gave me an idea - to list my top ten makeup websites! I'm going to split it into two parts,five of brand names and five of general cosmetic sites.
I hope this can help you make informed choices.

The Brands :

5 - http://www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk/ Great freebie and sample website,rightly so for the price that we pay!! They're currently offering an Anniversary set featuring a free travel sized Bad Gal mascara.This site also features videos and blogs for more insight into the products.


4 - http://www.sleekmakeup.com/ As a lover of Sleek makeup,I can vouch for this site being awesome.I love how it's laid out and how easy it is to access everything in one place! Postage is pretty good and the customer service make no question seem unwelcome.They can't do enough for you!


3- http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk/ MAC cosmetics are famous worldwide and with such high prices,it's pleasing that they give free postage for purchases over £30.00.Customer service is awesome and everything is easy to access.There's alot to look at!


2- http://www.crownbrush.co.uk/ Truly incredible prices for brushes! They have fair postage and packaging prices too,signed UK delivery for just £2.99.The site offers so many choices that it can sometimes be boggling,but upon learning your way around it,it will become your idea of brush and tool heaven,trust me.


1- http://www.eyeslipsface.co.uk/ also known as Elf! My personal favourite,this site is an awesome one for regular discounts on products,freebies and great postage too! There are a number of Elf sites for each country!


The Generals :


5 - http://www.cocktailcosmetics.co.uk/ A good overall,all round stockist of makeup products.They stock some of the lesser known brands in cosmetics,including Japonesque.They sometimes offer freebies with purchases too.


4 - http://www.feelunique.com/ This site has an amazing selection of products,alot of which are actually skincare.They sell the big brands like Benefit,Shiseido,Stila,Yves Saint Laurent and Clarins.The postage can be a little sneaky but a great selection none-the-less!


3 - http://www.sillyfarm.com/store/ A great theatrical makeup online store.Whether it's glitter,henna,facepaint,bright eyeshadows,wigs or party supplies you need,Silly Farm is sure to have it! The site is energetic and cheery to look at,extremely easy to navigate and with good customer service.Postage varies upon the size of object.Stockists of Ben Nye,Wolfe,Snazaroo,Kryolan and Graftobian.


2 - http://www.love-makeup.co.uk/ Good,fairly cheap stockists of NYX,OCC and even Lime Crime! Awesome postage and quick delivery.An amazing site for Z-Palettes and general makeup tools that would be otherwise hard to find.


1 - http://www.boots.com/  YES you can go instore..but honestly,I find Boots to have such an amazing online store.Without all of the shop assistants staring at you for browsing the shelves waaay over the reccomended shop time too! Postage is awesome and quick,although they sometimes waste packaging in the process.I still rate this highly because they literally sell everything under the sun.


So that's it for my top ten sites,I hope you gain something from this blog post.Thanks for reading,much love!
