Five Friday Favourites

Happy Friday!  I have that Friday feeling again and am excited as me and Ste have our good friend Dan visiting so we will be having lots of fun.  What do you all have planned this weekend?  Let me know in the comments below!

To start with I have three make up products (sorry fellas).  The first is the Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder. I saw a video review by Nikkia Joy of the Fit Me Loose Powder and she thought it was amazing which made me want to give it a go. It really smoothes out and leaves a great finish to the skin while helping to keep my make up in place. Check out Nikkia Joy’s YouTube channel at to see her video.

The second new item I’ve tried is the Maybelline Brow Mascara. I’m really low maintenance with my eyebrows and don’t like the overly polished look. I normally use a pencil just to fill them in a little so thought I would give this a try for a change. I got the dark blonde shade and it is perfect. Super easy and gives me the look I like. As it’s new you have to be careful that you don’t get too much on the applicator but I’m sure once I’ve used it a few times this won’t be such an issue.

Lastly, I finally got to try the Maybelline Eraser Concealer. It took me at least ten minutes just to get in the damn thing but it was worth it! I love the soft sponge applicator and it really helps brighten my under eye area which is where I have been using it. It is definitely a product I will continue using. Currently Maybelline products are on a 3 for 2 offer in Boots so now is the time to grab them for a bargain!


My fourth item is another beauty item and it’s these amazing falsies I found in Savers. They are from a brand called GWA (Girls With Attitude) and I think they are made for teens but they suit me perfectly as they are slightly smaller (I have little fingers) and they aren’t too long. I got this design which I have now had on since Tuesday night and they are holding up really well. The fact they are so affordable makes them even more fabulous! I can’t wait to try out my other colour too which is a grey chrome effect and I will share a photo on my Instagram so you can see it (


Lastly is something I’ve watched this week. Lady Gaga has recently revealed she has fibromyalgia. Her new documentary shows her making her new album and preparing to headline the SuperBowl but also reveals her health struggles becoming worse and worse prior to her diagnosis. She really seems like a lovely, genuine, beautiful lady and I admire her even more after watching this. Her comment about how people cope without the help she has around her, day to day, with problems like she was suffering with, came across as humble and genuine. It is available now to watch on Netflix and well worth the watch.


So that’s this week’s five! I’m super pleased with them all and hope you like them too if you choose to try them out. Let me know in the comments what you think of these, or if you have any other favourites from this week?

  2. Ooh I love those nails. The colour, length and look, might have to try those. Thanks for the concealer tip too – I am always always on the hunt for something to minimise my dark circles! Thanks for sharing at #familyfun


    • That’s ok – this one and the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer are definitely the best two I’ve tried. And the nails really are a great length, I can’t do anything with them too long so was really happy with them! Xx
