How I Revise





Hey Everyone,

Todays post is going to be about How I revise. I thought this would be useful as were coming into exam season soon, and could help anyone who needs some tips on how to revise.

When it came to revising for my first year uni exams I had to go back to the drawing board to find out what worked for me. Since leaving school in 2013 I had only sat 3 exams and they were all for one subject and therefore were the same type of exam. Also that exam didnt require much revision as it was an IFS exam which is basically an exam on finance but we pretty much get told before hand what to do for both part 1 and part 2. Anyway like I said the last time I had an exam was summer 2015 and I couldnt use that revision technique as it wouldn't work for these. 

So now after that long introduction lets jump into the post. 

Speak my notes into my phone and play them over and over again!

I first tried this last year and found it worked well for me. What I like to do is to break down my revision into little chunks, then speak them into my voice notes in my phone. I will then listen to them voice notes again and again especially when I am going to sleep as I found I soaked the information up quite well. 

Get my mum to test me!

What I like to do when learning defentions is to give my notes sheets to my mum and get her to make questions up and test me. Last year we done this 3-4 times a day and I found it to be a good way to learn the definitions as the days went on the more I would get correct. 

Read my notes twice a day!

Alongside the other two ways I mentioned above I also like to read my revision notes from start to finish twice a day. I normally do this once before I start the rest of my revision and once after. This helps me to soak up what it is all about and give some context to what I am revising. 

There, Done. That is all the ways I revise, I try not to overload my self each day and instead prefer to do little bits of revision but over a long period of time e.g 4 weeks. I found this to work really well last year so touch wood it does the same this year. I know this probably won't work for everyone but it does for me. Let me know in the comments how you revise?

Heathers' World Takes On The Big Apple!! - AGAIN


Hey everyone, 

Todays post is a little impromptu and I wasn't planning on posting this till the 19th of april but I just couldn't wait. So if you can't already by the title of the post I am taking on the big apple again in April Next Year. 

This trip was so unplanned and if you watch my Instagram story's then you will know the story of how this trip came about but I will briefly go over it in this post. 

So basically I had booked a summer holiday with a travel agents who I won't name and the final chunk of my holiday was due on Saturday. Now I normally have my money ready but I had a lot come up this past month and I don't get paid till friday. So I asked the travel agents could I have an extension till friday as I get paid and unfortunately they said they don't give them anymore. I however didn't want to loose the money I already paid so they said I could change it for a holiday that was later on in the summer. Unfortunately I don't have any other weeks of work so seeing as we had to make a decision quickly we decided to put the money towards New York in April as we knew what we was getting with that and didn't want to pick a random hotel for next summer. 

We had been thinking about going back to New York next year anyway and had said how easter would be a good time to go, so that is when we are going. We originally wanted to go in june once my exams were over but they didn't have availability for june so we are going in easter. 

My plan is to make my revision books before we go and revise on the planes and in the hotel of a night. 

So yeah we go on good friday next year for five nights six days and I can't wait. If your a long time follower you will know October didn't go to plan but I can guarantee this time will. We found out yesterday that our Auntie from Australia may meet us out there and spend the time with us.

So yeah expect lots of New York related content, I can't wait to spend easter over there and be back in the city that stole my heart. I also forgot to mention that we still are going away this summer as My Grandad is a super star and is paying for us to go away and I am paying him back before we go. I am so lucky to have such amazing family who are so so generous.

So yeah there's not much else to say apart from that 2019 is looking to be a great year and why not start it off with a trip to New York. As I hopefully graduate next year there will hopefully be more trips to come so I will announce them as soon as they are booked and we have concrete details. All I know is 2019 will be my year and will give me the opportunity to do some more traveling.

OOTD Easter Edition



Hey Everyone,

Todays post is going to be an OOTD Easter edition. So yesterday was easter sunday and we went out for a family meal so I thought I would show you all what I wore.
So this look was a lot more casual than previous looks as it just wasn't a dressy kind of occasion.

Jeans 
I decided to wear my ripped skinny black Joni jeans again as I am loving them at the moment. They can be dressed up like in the last ootd or completely dressed down like in todays look. 

Top
I went really casual and wore my Topshop cropped Philadelphia panthers hoodie. This is super comfy and not tight so I can eat as much food as possible and yet brought the outfit together while still looking super casual.

Shoes 
I decided to wear my old Nike trainers as I wasn't feeling my converse or chelsea boots and again suited the more causal theme I was going for with this look.

Jewellery 
I just decided to wear my new Michael Kors watch which wasn't featured in this photo but if you want to see what I looks like check out my Instagram.

So there you have it, this OOTD was really casual and something different as I normally like to dress up when we go out for food. I liked it though simple but yet put together and it was really nice to go out feeling comfy and cosy.

I hoped you liked this OOTD, you can expect to see more of them this year as I really want to incorporate more fashion into my blogging.

Current Lifestyle Favourites




Hey Everyone, 

Todays post is going to be a lifestyles favourites. I thought since I haven't done one in a while then this would be a good time to do an updated one.This post is going to feature a fashion favourite as well as a beauty one but the rest will be general lifestyle. I hope you like this post so before I start waffling on, let's jump into them. 

Morphie Power Bank :
This is my saviour when am in Uni all day and my phone battery dies. I can't be without it and my mum has even got into using it. 

Blogging:
Always going to be a lifestyle favourite, I adore blogging and hope to one day take it further than just a hobby but for now am loving it. I have been a bit pants at posting but once my assignments are all submitted I will be back to normal.

I Phone 7:
I feel like everyones phone is their favourite and mine is no different. It practically has my life on there so I don't know what I would do without it. 

Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara:
This has been my holy grail mascara for months now, just gives the perfect amount of volume and length and is perfect for anyone with sensitive eyes as it doesn't have a strong smell.

Homemade Shortbread:
Lets be honest who doesn't love homemade baking and for me it is shortbread. I adore making and eating homemade shortbread and currently got back into making it at least once a month. 

Topshop Knitted Crop Jumper:
This jumper is my current go to especially now that were in between seasons. Its perfect as its cropped so still feels spring like but thick enough to keep me warm on the colder days we seem to be having. 

So I know this is a different kind of post but I hoped you enjoyed it. I would love to know what your thoughts were and what are your current lifestyles favourites.

Mothers Day OOTD




Hey everyone, 

Today's post is a Mothers Day OOTD. Since it was mothers day here in the UK on Sunday and I went out to celebrate with my mum, I thought I would show you all what I wore.

Top - Light Grey Pleated Panel High Neck Top: River Island

This is the top I wore for mothers day, I picked it up around a month ago in store as I wanted some nicer tops to wear when I go out. This is perfect I wore this semi dressy with ripped jeans but you could go all casual and wear it with normal jeans or go dressy and wear it with pants. I loved this stop it fitted well and really added to the outfit.

Pants - Topshop Black Joni Ripped jeans 


I adore my Topshop Joni Jeans so I thought it was about time I owned a black ripped pair. This helped make the outfit a bit more casual as where we went wasn't super dressy. It also looked super nice with the top.




Shoes - New Look Chelsea Boots

My favourite chelsea boots, I wear these with 99% of my outfits and I love them. It really does finish the outfit of nicely.

Coat - Burberry

This is my favourite coat for special occasions and when I want to tie a look together. Theres not much more that I can say apart from it being a staple in my collection.

Bag -  Micheal Kors Jet Set  Cross body Bag

Again a bag I wear with 99% of my outfits and one that I adore. It's the perfect size for going out for a meal or for a day trip as it can still fit the essentials in.

Jewellery - mixed collection. 

So for my jewellery I wore my newish Micheal Kors rose gold watch, My two Pandora rings, My Pandora Charm Bracelet and my Tiffany Charm Bracelet. I found these to be the perfect amount of jewerlly and I love being able to stack my two charm bracelets.


So there you have my OOTD for Mothers day, I hoped you enjoyed this post. I love putting outfits together and posting these kind of posts for you. Expect to see more of these as the weather get's warmer.

Becca Apres Ski Glow Face Palette Review



Hey Everyone, 

Todays post is going to be a review of the Becca Apres Ski Glow Face Palette review. I have had this palette for just under three months and I have fell in love with it.
This palette was apart of the Becca Christmas Collection and it is such a great palette.

It contains three highlighters, two blushers and one bronzer. Two shades in this palette are new and exclusive to the palette and they are the shimmering skin perfecter pressed in Icicle and the mineral blush in Winter Berry. The rest of the shades are old shades from the Becca Range.

The rest of the shades are as follows: Rose Quartz shimmering skin perfecter pressed, Opal shimmering skin perfecter pressed, Blushed Copper Luminous Blush and Bronzed Bondi Sunlit Bronzer.

The size of the pans are relatively small in comparison to the full size's, these are 0.09oz and the full sizes are 0.28oz with regards to the highlighters, the blushers are 0.2oz full sized and the bronzer is 0.25oz. Now this doesn't bother me as I tend not to use up a full sized pan anyway but it may bother some so it's worth noting the difference in size.


The pigmentation of the shades is great and I find all bar the bronzer to be very wearable on my fair skin. I can use the bronzer but I have to be extremely careful with it as to not make it look muddy. I find this palette would work on a range of different skin tones. Becca actually has swatches of all the shades on three different skin tones from light to deep, they have also shown how to use the palette to create a look on both light and deeper skin tone thus highlighting it's versatility.

The shade selection in this palette is on point, Becca really did a great job. Winter Berry is a perfect shade to give you that flushed rosy cheeks look, while Blushed Copper is a gorgeous copper shade as the name suggests. Bronzed Bondi is a great warm bronze which is probably more suited to lighter to deep skin tones. The three highlighters are stunning Rose Quartz is a gorgeous pinky shade, Icicle is a stunning white which can reflect blue at times due to the sheen it has and finally Opal is a gorgeous nude highlight.

I find the shades in this palette to go on beautifully, they blend like a dream. I find the wear time fairly decent as well they last a good few hours on the skin.
Overall I find this to be a great palette very versatile. You can get a range of different looks from this palette and can even mix the highlighters if you want although I haven't tried it yet.
I find this to be a palette I can use not only in the Winter but can be used even in the spring and summer depending on the look I am going for.

I 100% recommend this product so if you are able to get your hands on it, I suggest you do so. I would love to know your thoughts on this palette?

Mothers Day Gift Inspiration



Hey Everyone, 

Today's post is going to be a Mother's Day Gift inspiration. So mothers day is in just under two weeks and if your like me then your still yet to buy a present, so I thought I would do a gift ideas post to give you some ideas.  I have tried to cater to a range of prices to suit a range of budgets so hopefully you can get some inspiration from this post. Let's jump straight in!

Pandora Charm 

If your mum has a Pandora charm bracelet then this could be a good option as a gift. Pandora do a whole range of charms that would be great as a mothers day gift, they do a standard mom charm which is around £35 or they do more expensive ones just depending on your budget. I think this is a lovely gift as she can wear it on her arm with pride and let's be honest we all love a Pandora Charm. 

Flowers 

You can't go wrong with flowers and the best thing is that they can suit any budget. I always like to get my mum some flowers for mothers day. How much I spend on them depends on what else I get her but if your on a budget Tesco do some really nice small sets for a really low cost. 

Me To You Mum Bear 

If your mum loves collectables or Me To You and you don't want to spend a lot then getting her a bear could be a good option. You can get a small plush for £9.99 then a medium one for £15 or a bit more bigger for £35, so again there is something to suit everyones budget and they are just so cute. The £35 is a lot more detailed than the £9.99 but am sure any mum would be happy to receive any.

Kate Spade Agenda 

If your mums anything like me and loves writing things down then this will be the perfect present for her. This is one of the more pricer gift options as they are currently £30 but they are beautiful. I got my mum one in the airport on the way back from New York and she loves it. They come with stickers so your mum can get all of her important dates put in. A great option for the mother who loves a good notebook.

Handmade Photo Album 

This is a really nice idea for anyone who is on a budget and one that I am planning on doing this year myself. I always find personal handmade gifts to go down well as you have put time and effort into making the present. For mine I have used a scrapbook as I wanted to put writing next to the photo's and make it all pretty.

Bottle of Alcohol

Since I turned 18 this is something I have been getting my mum for mothers day. My mum loves a good Baileys so each year I get her a bottle for mothers day. If your under 18 then this could still be something you get just make sure you get someone over 18 to buy it for you obviously. A good bottle of wine or her favourite drink is a failsafe present for any mum.

Chocolates or Cupcakes

Just like the option before you can't go wrong with her favourite box of chocolates or getting her a box of cupcakes. You could even make the cupcakes yourself to make it that extra more special.

Perfume 

If you know your mum's been wanting to try a new perfume or is running low on her current one then getting her a bottle is a great option. Now this could fall into many different budgets depending on what perfume she likes. For me this would be one of the more pricer products as my mum has expensive taste in perfume.

So there you have it my mothers day gift guide so to say. I hope this post has given you some inspration.  Let me know in the comments what you thought of this post.

My Updated Travel Wish List 2018


I do not own any of the images used in the post. Full Credit goes to the individual owners.

Hey Everyone, 

Todays post is going to be an updated travel wish list. I though this would be interesting to do as a lot of new places have come onto my radar recently and have been added to my travel wish list.

Florida

Still on my travel wish list and will forever be on my travel wish list until I visit. I would love to visit Orlando florida as well as Miami Florida. These have been on my wish list for ever who wouldn't love to visit these to sunshine paradise's. To add to this I still want to visit DisneyWorld as well and that is still on my list.

California 

Oh California, I really want to go visit California one day. The sunshine, the history and the atmosphere is all things that are so enticing. I specifically want to go to Los Angles in California as I would love to see the walk of fame, the famous hollywood sign and soak up some of the LA lifestyle.

Maldives 

The Maldives, isn't it everyones dream to go there at some point? I am sure we have all wished we was there or have it as our dream honeymoon destination and I am no different. I would love to visit this beautiful, picturesque place just once in my lifetime. The beautiful white sandy beaches, with pristine clear water and the weather to match. I can't see this being one that I will tick of in the near future but it is still defiantly on my wish list!


Australia 

I have wanted to visit Australia for the longest time and it will forever be on my wish list until I manage to tick it of my list. I would love to do a four week trip traveling round the country. I am lucky enough to have family out in Melbourne so I may have to take a trip out to see them soon, just need to save up for that and my million other trips I want to take.


Hawaii 

Isn't Hawaii just dreamy, it literally is like paradise. The sandy beaches, clear blue water and the beautiful palm trees. Ever since I was younger and read a Mary Kate & Ashley book that talked about Hawaii and a luau I really want to visit. I feel like I would fit in so well with the Hawaii atmosphere and yeah the photos for Instagram would be great. I wouldn't be a blogger if I didn't pick somewhere that had beautiful views for the gram would I?

Iceland 

Two words Blue Lagoon. To be quid honest the Blue Lagoon is one of the only reasons I want to go visit Iceland.  I'm not the biggest fan of the cold weather, but I would happily brave it in order to go to the blue lagoon. I need to spend a bit more time looking into Iceland and what it has to offer so it may not be one I visit in the immediate future, but hey who knows I could end up here in the next few years!

Munich

Whenever people ask me why Munich is on my wish list of places I want to visit I can never explain why. There's just something about Munich that makes me want to visit. The beautiful architect, the history sounding the city and the city as a whole just entices me to visit and am hoping within the next few years to tick it of my list.

So there you have the places that are on my current travel wish list. I am always adding to my list as I tick one's off so I thought and updated one would be appropriate.

I hoped you enjoyed this post, I would love to know your thoughts and find out where is on your travel wish list?

Best Of Charlotte Tilbury



Hey Everyone, 

Welcome to another post and today it is all about the best of Charlotte Tilbury. Now if you don't know who Charlotte Tilbury is then have you been living under a rock for like forever. Only joking Charlotte is a super talented makeup artist who started to created her own range of products in 2013 and has continuously expanded her product range since then. 

I stumbled upon her products in September 2015 when I treated myself to one of her looks the uptown girl. Since then I have tried many products from the range and most of them have been amazing but there are the odd few that are not so great or ones I just haven't got on with. So for today I thought I would do a best of Charlotte Tilbury based of the products I have tried. There are some I haven't so I won't be commenting on them but these are the standout products from her range that I have tried. I adore that she creates products for people will fair skin to people with a deeper collection as well. 

Lipstick's - Kissing & Matt Revoloution

I own three full sized lipsticks from her brand and three mini lipsticks. Each of the full size lipsticks come from each of her different formulas, the matt revolution and the kissing formula. The three full size lipsticks that I own are Bitch Perfect which is from the Uptown Girl look, Pillow Talk and Kidman's Kiss. These lipsticks are amazing the pigmentation is second to none, they last a long time on your lips and the Matt Revoloution ones don't dry out your lips and are comfortable to wear. They are a great starter item if your new to the brand as they are great value for money. 

Lip Cheat Lip Liners 

Charlotte is kinda known for her Pillow Talk Lipliner so it's no shock that the rest of her lip liners are just as good. I own the pillow talk lip liner as well as pink venus and kiss n tell. Each of the lip liners apply creamy and the lasting power is as you expect long. She has a wide range of colours and each of them have a lipstick that they pair with. At 

Instant Eye Palette 

Charlotte released this product late last year and has quickly become my favourite product from her range. A eyeshadow palette which has four different looks and can take you from day to night. Since receiving this product I haven't stopped using it, you can create a wide range of looks with this just one palette. They eyeshadows are pigmented, buttery and blend like a dream. This palette can help you create a smokey eye without so much effort. If you would like a full in depth review then please do let me know. 

Swish & Pop Blusher

I only own one blusher from her range but it is beautiful. Her swish and pop blushes were created with the idea of swishing your brush in the outer shade and apply then popping the brush in the inner circle and popping on the cheeks. I have the shade love glow and it gives a lovely flush on the cheeks, isn't chalky and fades beautifully although it does have great lasting power. 

Wonder Glow Primer

Glow indeed, I was so skeptical of trying out the wonder glow primer as it just didn't seem like something my dry skin would get on with! How wrong was I, this is slowly becoming one of my favourite primers. It really does give you a glow from within and works well with most foundations. I love using it with my Urban Decay naked skin and I am currently trailing it with my new light wonder foundation that I recently picked up. Everyone needs wonder glow in there life.

Magic Cream 

I ordered a trial kit of Charlotte's Skincare to take with me to New York and this was on of the products I put in my liquids bag to use on the flight. Magic Cream is a lovely creamy moisturiser, it gives instant hydration to my skin. I have since used up the tub and I am seriously considering buying the full sized as it is such a great product.

So there you I have it the my opinion on the best Charlotte Tilbury Product's on the market. I hoped you enjoyed this post I would love to know your thoughts in the comments below. Also I'd love to know what are you favourite products from the brand if you have tried any? If not what would you like to try?

My University Essentials




Hey everyone,

Todays post is going to be about my university essentials and what I take in my university bag with me. I thought this would be interesting to do as I try not to take to much but still take the essentials. My current uni bag is this grey backpack that I got from Topshop around two years ago I believe, it's not my favourite bag to use but it does the job. I am going to break this down into my pencil case, essential bag and then the rest of the bag.

Pencil Case :  My pencil case is quite small so I just try to take the essentials with me. They are:


  • A couple of black and blue pens. 
  • A highlighter or two
  • Ruler 
  • Coloured pen 
  • A pencil 

So that is everything I take in my pencil case, moving onto my essentials bag next!
My Essentials Bag: This is where I put all my essentials that would get lost in my bag, they are:

  • Perfume of choice 
  • Lip balm
  • Moisturiser 
  • Hand gel 
  • Girly Items if you get what I mean
  • Tissues 
  • Bobbles
  • Hair clips
Finally moving onto the rest of my bag!
Rest of my bag: The rest of my bag is where everything else that I have to take with me goes, they are:

  • That day's subject notebook to take notes in 
  • Uniform for work if I have to go straight to work after university
  • Water Bottle 
  • Food and snacks for the day
  • Hairbrush 
  • Morphie power pack
  • Iphone charger

So there you have it everything I take in my uni bag. It may seem like I take a lot but it's really not in comparison to my friends. I hoped you enjoyed this different kind of post, let me know in the comments whats your must have in your bag, doesn't have to be a university one.

Until Next Time,
