Review: Max Factor Smoky Eye Effect Eyeshadow


Last Friday I met up with my good friend, Natalie, from University after FAR TOO LONG. Twenty minutes before we were due to meet, I found myself loitering in Boots when I noticed that Max Factor had quite a good offer going on: buy one mascara (out of a named selection) and get one of their new Smoky Eye Effect Eyeshadow pens free. On its own, the pen would cost £7.99, and I mean, I needed a new mascara anyway so I figured WHY NOT. I ended up buying the new 24 Hour False Lash Effect mascara (not loving it so far) and the bronze/brown Smoky Eye Effect pen/crayon.

F&F for Tesco: Mini Haul


My mom and I always go late-night shopping at Tesco, and sad as it is, I really really enjoy it. I don't know what it is, but I like browsing supermarkets late in the evening when it's quieter and all the good offers start coming out. Between the two of us, we are TERRIBLE when it comes to browsing clothes and make up in supermarkets. As soon as we enter, one of us starts gravitating towards either F&F or George and the other tends to sigh a little bit--maybe exclaim "NO, NOT THERE, STRAIGHT TO THE VEG"--before following quickly (and eagerly) in the other's footsteps.

I'm guilty of buying a ton of my clothes from George and F&F, not even going to lie. I tend not to go out to the city centre with the intention of buying clothes (my budget is far too low to PLAN shopping trips), but I go grocery shopping at least once a week, and I kind of end up buying clothes without really meaning to. While I feel a little bit ashamed about this, I don't think that I should per se because I find that both George and F&F tend to sell clothes of quite a high quality. I mean, on the rare occasion that I actually find myself in Miss Selfridge or Topshop, say, I'm genuinely shocked by how rubbish the quality of some of the clothing is in there. I can't justify paying £45 for a flimsy see-through top made of polyester and viscose, when I get something similar and sometimes better, from George or F&F. It can be hit and miss sometimes, but I think that's the same everywhere; besides, supermarket clothing lines are much more suited to my student budget.

Anyway, last night I popped into Tesco with my mom to buy JUST BREAD AND SANDWICH MEATS, but ended up coming out with a top and some really cute loafers. 

Tassel .Loafers £14

These are SO comfortable, and that's coming from somebody who lives in Vans, Converse and boots from Clarks lol

I love the fact that these have rubber soles. This means that they are actually practical for walking in xD I'm completely incompetent when it comes to talking in shoes with plastic soles that have no grip whatsoever.

Flowy animal print (?) top. £8. This top actually features in F&F's most recent TV advertisement ^_^
