Hunger Games: Book review

I have to say I'm not a "book worm" as they call it and I only really read when i have to.
My point-books bore me!(normally)
However i recently read the Hunger games as a friend lent it to me over the summer. Thinking I'd just read the first page i took it.
But being truthful after that first page I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN !

i loved it!and even though i had seen the film i wanted to know what happend next,it also helped to explain the film as it can be confusing at times,and i know enjoy it more as i understand it!

i finished the book within a week and a half (thats like super human for the rate i read at)
and i wanted to know what happed next so i bought the next two books(from good old Morrisons)
And love them two i read the second one twice!

Even if you dont normally read like me,i really reccomend the sieries of Hunger Games books,they are
 urgh-mazing and like i said i could not put it down.
if i was reading this id think "narh"but honestly you wont know untill you enter "the world of the games"

please comment with your views on the book or film
hope you liked

My obsession with Paul Frank

I love Paul frank products i don't what it is about them maybe its the cute monkey face that always seems to be trying to smile! :) i love it.

Over the years i have expanded my collection of Paul frank products.
here are some of them.

This was my first ever Paul frank item i got it form Debenhams in a sale for something like £18.50 about three years ago.i Absolutely loved it and used it for my school bag until the strap broke! :( i know completely heart braking i must have over worked it.

Here are my present iteams the bag i use as my school bag i bought this a year ago from bank for £25
on the top is a laptop case i got given so i dont know the cost but ive seen them in TK Max
ear phones also given
And finally my pink paul frank phone case i love this and always have it on my phone because (i thought i'd mention again that) i love the monkey!! this was £20

so thats it!
 i think i got into paul frank because of the designs and the monkey (again) i didnt know it was a worldwide and known brand i just knew i liked it!

so there is the moral of the story guys ;) dont follow all the brands just because everyone eles does,choose the ones that you love!

Everyones Taste Is Different!
(dont be afraid to show it)

NAIL,that nail art-September Edition

Sorry for not posting I have no excuses apart from the fact that I haven't got round to it, for which I apologise.

This is my tenth post Yey!! During which I have gained 3 lovely followers and 113 page views which is ok I guess as I am relatively new,so let's make it a good one! I hope you like :)

If you don't know Like to post about creative nail art not just the standard plain colour,don't get me wrong I love one colour nails but I feel amazing nails bring out your creativity and can complete an here we go!

Tuxedo Nails

These nails have been spotted on Zooey dechanel, I LOVE the idea of them as there original and quirky.
There are many versions of this nail art, ill do both of the ones above.

(picture on the right like Zooeys)

  1. Paint all of your nails white (use more then one coat if needed)
  2. make a dot near the top of your nail
  3. with a dotting tool make 4 more dots that outline a basic bow shape
  4. join the dots to the centre dot to create a bow
  5. paint a line across the bottom of your nail,like you would paint the white when doing a french manicure.
  6. add three more dots between the black line and bow

this is the version zooey wore for version 2 (picture on the left (top)) just change the black manicure line into a v shape so you are left with a white triangle in the middle,this my be best drawn before the bow and dots
hope that's not confusing :/

so i love this look, and collars are big this season so why not mix the two together and make a peter pan collar version.

Step By Step Guide In Pics

hope you like them and try this look,it is hard to do them on yourself but they look fab and are well worth the effert when their finished :)

Foundation-Liquid VS Powder:my opinion

 Sorry for the slight delay been busy looking at other peoples blogs,there are so many! here are some of my favourites.

check 'em out!

For this post i thought i'd do a post on foundation as it's the foundation of makeup ovs

so Powder or Liquid?

Powder foundation
  • feels light like you have nothing on your skin
  • as long as it is minerals it doesn't block pores
  • in my opinion looks more natural then liquid
  • evens skin tone
  • however the coverage can be minimal and doesn't cover dark eye circles and big blemishes.
  •  wares off within a few hours

Liquid foundation

  • the coverage is good as it covers dark circles and blemishes better then powder
  • evens skin tone
  • lasts longer then powder
  • in my opinion it feels heavy especially when applying it
  • doesn't look as natural, as it almost covers you (i know that's the whole idea)

All in all i prefer...(drum roll please)......POWDER!

I know loads of people will disagree, as the coverage is minimal, but i prefer to not hide the real me but enhance it,i love the light feel and how natural it looks.I'm using one from AVON at the moment and paid £10.50 ,
 it seems to work well and its mineral so i can where it and not worry about blocked pores.
i'm sure my views will change as i get older,as my skin will change too
but for now i like to not cover my youthful skin
i want to make the most of it, you know what they say

Autumns AMAZING Makeup trends

Autumn-brings school,cold weather and the start of an even colder winter :(       
 BUT there is always a silver lining!-More party's,new trends and that bit closer to Christmas!!!YEY
( it's actually 16 weeks but who's counting?)

Here are trends to go with a fab Autumn wardrobe!

Rich Tones
As the shade of clothes deepen so does the makeup, these tones is perfect for a night out.

This is just an example of a few shades,i love the deep blue,green and purple the best for this season


Personally I'm not a fan of lipstick but you could use a lip tint pen to achieve this look.
deep lipsticks can be anything from wine red to plum.
 (note:dont do dark lips with dark eyes one or the other normally looks best)


these are rich shades again but i especially like the ones with a metallic edge.

 Smoked Eyes

The Smokey eye look is almost timeless as it looks good whenever really,but for this Autumn try gold toned shades.Make it softer by applying slightly lighter colours for a more natural look or just go for the
by making more contrast between the shades you are using and defining for a more dramatic look.

Smokey Definition

Make your eyes stand out a mile!-cheesy i know :)
This look is all about lashings of mascara and loads of eyeliner then simply smudge to achieve a thicker line.Simples.
This look is best with toned-down lips like Beyonce's.

Rosy cheeks

Look like you've just walked in from the cold with a pink radient face.

There are a few looks here you can hopefully try!
