So I made a Wantworthy a while ago and I thought I would show it to you guys! I love this website it's amazing for making my own little wish lists. I'm someone who loves organisation, so this is perfect for me as you can make different wish lists. I have a beauty, summer clothes and room wish list. This website allows you to have a little tab above your tabs on safari, I'm not sure how it works on PCs but, on my macbook I have a little tab which I click whilst online shopping and it quickly adds whatever I'm wanting to add to my list. I thought Wantworthy would also be a good way of sharing the things I love to you. Plus, I have not really shown my style yet to you guys, so this would be a perfect way for you to check out the clothes I'm dying to buy! So, If you would like to see what's on my Wantworthy click here!

If any of you have a Wantworthy feel free to leave a link to yours in the comments,  I'd love to look at yours! Hope you are all having a fabby weekend. The weather is so lovely today in scotland for a change! I have my first exam next thurday. I'm so nervous. Fingers crossed the studying pays off!

March Favourites

This month has gone by so quickly, I'm not liking it as I have exams soon, ahhhh!   Anyway, I thought I'd bring to you my first ever monthly favourites!

Nspa Hot Cloth Polish- This is amazing. It's a lovely cleanser that works beauties on my skin. It worked as a miracle treatment for me after I had a crazy breakout. It has a lovely texture and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. It also smells amazing, which is a plus. It's also pretty cheap, you can pick up one of these for £7, or two for £8. I wrote a full review on this, so if you would like more details about this click here.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser & Nars Sheer Glow Foundation- So, this month I have been mixing these two products together to create the perfect foundation! Nars Sheer Glow Foundation (you can read my full review on this product here) has a medium to full coverage, it gives a lovely glow, and sits on my face perfectly! Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturiser is my favourite tinted moisturiser, it is amazing! It has a light coverage, gives a luminous look to the skin and corrects any redness in the skin, what more can you look for in a tinted moisturiser!! This month I've not wanted too much coverage, but I've still been feeling like I've needed a tad more coverage than a tinted moisturiser. So, by mixing these two products together I've been creating a moisturising foundation with the perfect coverage which gives a lovely glow, which I've been needing since the weather here has been awful! This combo is honestly perfect!
OPI Over The Taupe

OPI Over The Taupe- This isn't the normal kind of nail polish I'd typically pick out in spring, but since the weather has been a bit more wintery I've been reaching for this a lot. I love this, it's a lovely taupe colour (as the name suggests) which looks stunning with most outfits. It is a really sophisticated colour which is a pretty neutral, so I love it!
Lancome Rouge in Love in Rose The

Lancome Rouge in Love lipstick in Rose Thé-I bought this lipstick last summer and was obsessed with it for a while. Since then, I kind of forgot about it and it got lost within my collection. This month, I started using it again and once again...I'm obsessed! The packaging is beautiful and the formula is amazing. It's so pigmented and creamy. The colour is a sort of dark peachy nude, my kinda nude! It's perfect for those days when you want to pop on a bit of concealer, mascara and a lip colour which will automatically brighten up your face. It's a "your lips but better" kind of lippy! I really can't fault it.

I hope you liked this post! What have you been loving this month?


My Revision Tips

I know this isn't beauty related, like the rest of my blog, but I thought I'd do a post on my revision tips as I'm revising for my Standard Grades at the moment! Everyone has their own ways of remembering things, but these are the things that work for me!

1.Ditch your laptop and phone! I get so easily distracted, so having a laptop or phone near me always ends up distracting me from my revision. I always have to hand my phone and laptop over to my parents so that I have no possible distractions.

2.Organise yourself. I'm an organised freak when it comes to revision and schoolwork. I find that having everything in place and having easy access to all your schoolwork allows you to get on with your work without losing anything. I organise all my schoolwork by subject and by topic, I make sure that throughout the school year I keep to my organisation arrangement. This means that by the time it comes to having to revise I have everything in place and ready to be used.

3.Do lots of past papers. Most exams are basically the same questions, but with the words or numbers mixed about. This means that there is almost a format to most exam papers. By doing past papers you get used to this and you basically know what to do for any question that they hit you with!

4.Start Early. I must admit, I've not stuck to this tip myself. I'm the best person at procrastinating, so I kept delaying the start of my revision. This has now backfired as I have so little time, and so much to revise. So learn from my mistake, and put away your laptop/phone or whatever your reading this on and get revising ha ha!

5.Give yourself rewards. I find that by telling myself, if I do a few hours of revision I can read some blog posts and watch some youtube videos. I find this works as you have something to look forward to, so it makes revision a little bit better.

6. Get exiting stationary. This may sound a little bit weird, but when I have fun pens and cool highlighters it makes studying a little bit more enjoyable. Adding a little colour to your revision notes makes things a little more fun.

7.Get motivated. Tell yourself that you're not going to do well in your exams if you sit about and do nothing. You can only achieve good grades if you try, so do something about it and get working! I have to constantly remind myself about this, because I am pretty lazy.

So, those are my basic tips on revision. Tell me what you think about this type of non-beauty related post. Let me know if you have any good tips on revision, as I could use any extra advice I can get haha! Also, you may see less posts from me in the near future as I will have my exams and I'm sticking to my laptop or phone. But don't worry, I'll be back with more posts than ever once my exams are done. Thanks for reading!

Nspa Hot Cloth Polish

I've heard so many amazing things about Liz Earle's Hot Cloth Cleanser however, at a price of £27 I couldn't quite justify buying it. I'm quite lazy about my skincare routine, and I don't like the fuss of some products. Therefore I thought it would just end up getting chucked in the back of a drawer, like many of the other cleansers I've given up on. However; a few weeks ago whilst on a trip to Asda I spotted Nspa's Hot Cloth Polish. It looked so similar to Liz Earle's Hot Cloth Cleanser, and for the price of £7, I just had to get it! 

I've been using it for around a month now and I love love love it! My skin feels amazing after using it and it has been a miracle treatment for me as it managed to clear a crazy breakout I had. It's a quick and easy step which I feel benefits my skin. I've been using this every night after having taken off my makeup with the Simple Purifying Cleansing Lotion, and after having taken a shower. I feel that when I'm using this I don't have to wash my face with a cleanser in the shower as it cleans my skin well. When using it, I massage it onto my skin and then remove the product with the muslin cloth that comes with it and warm water. I then apply my Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance(my favourite moisturiser), which soaks into the skin really well after using the Hot Cloth Polish. I also sometimes use it in the morning when I have enough time (I'm usually running about my house in the morning before school, as I always get up late haha).  

This cleanser is honestly amazing, and for the price, I don't see why not to buy it! You can find this in Asda, as it is exclusive to them. It is usually on promotion there at 2 for £8. So you get an extra bottle for £1, which is really good! I had never heard of this brand before, but I will definitely be trying out more of their products.
