Yesterday I drove on up to Manchester to be reunited with my best friend and to go and see BEYONCE!! I can't even explain how excited I was and obviously she did not disappoint. She performed all the songs I wanted her too, my favourite was probably Single Ladies. We were in standing and got pretty close to the stage, it was really weird seeing her in person when I've watched her so much on tv! 

I ate so much good food while I was in Manchester. When I arrived Oli made me frozen yoghurt with strawberries, bananas, granola and flaked almonds and then for dinner she made me chicken stuffed with goats cheese with quinoa. Then this morning when I was hungover I got made a sausage and egg  sandwich - spoilt!

I have now seen Rihanna and Beyonce perform live - what more do I want?!

My Valentines Day

I got spoilt this weekend, roses and champagne and got taken out for dinner! We went to Las Iguanas for dinner and ate so much food! The food was so tasty and the cocktails were two for one, perfect! We went out for drinks afterwards and I definitely got pretty drunk. Almost fell over in a pub, which was very embarrassing! 

I got Tom to take a snap of my outfit - I am so awkward in outfit photos!! My top is Urban Outfitters, jeans are black Topshop Joni jeans, shoes are Topshop sale, bag is New Look and jewellery is a mixture of H&M, Pandora and my Marc Jacobs watch. I tried to take a photo of my make-up to do a FOTD but I couldn't get a good one, too much alcohol and Tom making me laugh, sorry!

Hope you've had a good weekend

Getting Ready for Valentine's Day

It's here. The day you either love or hate. Although I can't say I fall into either category, I will be spending it with my boyfriend which will be lovely and it's be our third Valentine's together which is crazy! But I have work at 6am tomorrow morning so it'll be a quiet one tonight but we've booked to go out for a meal tomorrow night which will be lovely :).

To get ready for Valentine's I pampered myself last night (any excuse for a pamper!). I used the Origins Clear Improvement Mask and then followed up with my usual skincare including the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. Both these products help to clear up my skin and make it look much more healthy and glowing. I made sure to use my Lush Bubblegum lip scrub to make my lips nice and soft! I used my favourite fake tan which I just can't stop talking about at the moment, the Xen Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe, can't fault this product at all. And finally I painted my nails red to go with the occasion with Essie's Snap Happy.

Hope you're having a good day, whatever you're doing and Happy Valentine's :)

Long Weekend

Doing my make-up while watching some HeyClaire on YouTube!

The best food ever. Burger and chips followed by Apple and Pear crumble for dessert. mmmm

Just a few photos from my long weekend in London with my boyfriend. I had the most amazing time, it was my first weekend off since the start of December! We didn't do anything particularly special or crazy. On Friday night I went out with his work friends then we spent Saturday just chilling, having some wine, watching tv and catching up. Then on Sunday we went out for a pub lunch with his sister. They both went for roasts but I went for a burger which they just couldn't comprehend - I'm just not that big a fan of roasts, sorry!! We watched the Man United match, I am a huge supporter and the result left me in a baaaad mood!! 

Now I'm back home in my flat in the Midlands and I'm not feeling too great so already dreading work in the morning. I'd best start planning how I'm going to spend my next long weekend, in 6 weeks time...

Hope you had a good weekend!

Payday Treats

Every month as soon as I'm paid I head into town and treat myself. I definitely didn't need any of these things, but I wanted them so that's okay right?

I am really happy with my Soap & Glory Supercat liquid liner but fancied trying somehting new so I bought this Rimmel offering, so far I don't like it as much unfortuately. I find it more difficult to apply and less black, so not such a good impulse buy from me. Soap & Glory are fast becoming one of my favourite brands, I bought another colour of the Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks and I love it. They are so easy to apply and give a sheer wash of colour, perfect for everyday.

I have been getting into haircare a bit more recently so wanted to try another conditioner. I absolutely love the L'Oreal EverRiche conditioner but I wanted to look for a less rich everyday conditioner. I was searching in Boots but I found it really hard to find anything for fine hair, all the conditioners were describing how nourishing and repairing they were and sometimes that's just too heavy for my hair. But I found this one by Toni & Guy and so far I really like it. It still makes my hair feel really soft without weighing it down at all.

Finally I went a bit wild on the Essie stand! I am obsessed with buying nail varnish at the moment and I am just in love with Essie. I even bought two colours that look pretty much identical...I am ridiculous. But the formula is just so on point, no streaks, opaque in two coats and lasts for 5 days. What more do I want? (except all the other colours they have...)

I just want to say thank you so much to Hannah from Cosmetic Crave for having me guest post on her blog, I've gained about 20 readers since posting so hi if you came over from Hannah's blog! I hope you enjoy reading Aztec Mess
