Recently I’ve been wanting to go beyond an everyday look and experiment with make up – because why not? Make up can be explorative and be used for fun, so I went ahead and created this pretty and pink make up look. I would say it is more editorial (used in photography, magazines and in fashion) than the usual make up looks. But guess what guys! It’s all affordable as they are mainly from drugstore brands such as Sleek Make up.
I’ve also created this mini video (via tumblr – click this link) that I had lots of fun creating, showing bits of the process and outcome of this look. All the products are listed below and I hope you enjoy!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted something but it’s been pretty full on with A-levels. However, I’m here now to update you with all the fun things I’ve been getting up to.
There are many places in London that I usually go to if I wanted to get some inspiration and to have a good time. But I have to admit that Camden is one place that I will never get bored of. This place will always be great for its cultural and artistic features. I particularly enjoy and love the markets, foods and the people.
Another trait in which Camden Town is known for, is the art. There is always something art-related occurring and it’s inspiring. As I was walking along the pavements heading towards the Regents Canal, there is a man who simply sits down on the floor and has pieces of printings and chalks. Usually the printed papers are portraits of well known icons such as Amy Winehouse and Nelson Mandela, however he simply analyses these images so well and creates wonderfully made portraits on the streets of Camden – only from chalk as his medium – which I think is pretty amazing. The only worrying thing is that he knows that this art won’t last very long (rainy England of course) yet he continues to do it.
Mega Comics – Comic Book Store
A beautiful lantern shop.
Art is everywhere.

As I went here with my nerd bestfriend, we decided to visit the ‘Mega City Comics’, comic book store which is located behind some market stalls. This place has really good deals and coming from someone who doesn’t know much about comic books – it’s still pretty amazing. It is filled with different genres, from superheroes to Anime. There is something for everyone. Really, you could even simply admire the art of it.
Anyways, hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post and I hope to continue to share my experiences with you (even if it is poorly timed).
Until the next time,Tammy xx
This post is all about my little trip to the Horniman Museum and Gardens in Forest Hill. I went here with my sister and we had such a great time exploring this place during the summer holidays, I miss the summer so much already.
This place was such a quirky little area and it’s filled with surprisingly the most peculiar things such as a mini zoo with alpaca’s, a museum exploring the African culture and a cute children’s playground where they get to play around with instruments. This place surprised both me and my sister and it’s definitely a great place to just relax and appreciate nature. If you’re a person who likes to be in a peaceful environment and loves the smell of alpaca poop then this is your place! (No, I’m kidding about the poop.)
The gardens at Horniman are a gorgeous environment full of pretty little flowers and a sweet bandstand where people could have an intimate ceremony or somewhere to exchange their vows, which I found quite special.
When we had visited the museum it was fascinating to us as it was filled with various different historian artifacts from natural history to the African culture. It let us discover their understanding and how different it is compared to our everyday lives. Although, I’m not a museum kind of girl, it was something new.

I’m going to end this post off here but I hope you enjoyed me sharing my little outing. Leave a “like” if you’d like to see more posts about other places I discover and visit 🙂
Bye for now xx
A couple of weeks ago I headed down to Brent Cross and visited the Mac counter in Fenwick’s to treat myself, since I haven’t bought make up in a while – recovering from the exam period.
I purchased 2 things which was the B45 Matte Bronzing Powder and the Studio Finish pot Concealer in the shade NC35. I initially was just looking for a concealer and bronzer so I asked a Mac artist called Nadia, to help me find the right shade. I have a warm yellow skin tone. It can be a little tricky finding the right colour and if you can relate, we have to endlessly mix our foundations and concealers to get a colour closest to our skin tone. But after many uses of these products, here is my overall review on how they worked out.
Bronzing casing on the outside – simple and cute.
Bronzer packaging on the inside – Handy little mirror.
Concealer case on the outside.
Concealer on the inside – just based in a little pot, easy to carry around.
Firstly, I do quite like the look of the bronzer as it isn’t too orange nor too cool toned which is what I was looking for. I think this product works best by slowly building up the colour rather than putting a lot on the bronzing brush and applying it. It also is very matte and I needed that for my oily skin. So the bronzer gets a yes from me.
However moving onto the concealer, it was a bit too light for me (the lighting always tricks me) but the coverage is really good. The artist did mention that it is sometimes used to cover up tattoos so it guess it lived up to its reputation. Moreover, I think I will use the concealer to give me more of a highlight rather than using it everyday, but I will use it if I need to cover up any of my face scars.
Lesson learnt, don’t trust the Mac store lighting
