Five Likes and A Loathe | #1

This is essentially my weekly roundup. I would love to write posts on what I've got up to in the week, but my weeks consist of college and sleep so on a scale of 1-10 of excitement, those posts would be a good 0 (unless you're obsessed with Musical Theatre). Instead, I've decided to compile a list of 5 things I've loved from the week, whether it be a product, playlist, food etc. But I'll also throw in there something I've not liked, because no matter how hard I try, I'll always be a negative ninny at heart. 


1. Laura mercier Secret Camauflage Concealer
I've literally only been wearing this, plus powder, for day to day base make-up and I love it. It covers all my acne scarring without the need for me to suffocate the 'good' skin with full coverage foundations.
Full coverage + long lasting = My holy Grail. 

2. Almond, Date & Banana Smoothie
I recently purchased the DeliciouslyElla App, which includes a compiled collection of her plant based recipes (Read her blog here). Whilst I don't think I could ever fully commit to the vegan lifestyle, I think it's good to incorporate some healthy food here and there and I am absolutely obsessed with this smoothie. It genuinely tastes like a caramel milkshake, so I get to satisfy my sweet tooth without clogging my arteries, horay!

3. Indie Pop Playlist - Spotify
Really not feeling the music that seems to be taking over the charts at the moment, so I decided to browse spotify for another playlist that helps make my hour and fifteen minute bus journeys to and from college a little more bearable. That for me has been the indie pop playlist, a total contrast to my other favourite playlist titled 'musicals'. It just makes me feel so chilled and although I cant understand what most of them are singing about, but I'm sure it's something quirky and interesting.

4. Origins Super Spot Remover
Thank you for practically getting rid of the huge spot brewing on cheek over night, if I could, I would marry you. 

5. Tangle Teezer
Without this geneous product, there would have been no way in hell I was taming the mess that was my hair after the dance competition on Sunday. Back combing always seems like a good idea at the time, but dealing with the aftermath is a whole lot easier with a product that does all the work for you. 


 Drugstore don't
Nothing makes me feel more uncomfortable when browsing the likes of Boots and Superdrug than when I see people apply the drugstore testers to their face. Especially with products like mascara and lipstick. 
1. There are no mascara testers. You are using a product (that you have not payed for!) that is only going to end up being purchased by someone else who then has to encounter your eye germs. Sharing is most definitely not caring. 
2. most people swatch products on the back of their hands and well, to put things nicely; you don't know where their hands have been. If you then apply that lipstick directly to your lips, or that eye shadow to your eyes, you are potentially putting nasty germs into your system. Gross. 

I'm glad I got that off my chest. Hope you've had a lovely week!
