I love love love this guy and his awesome radio show. I've been listening to him every morning for ages now. The mornings are not the same without him. So I've donated money to Red Nose day for him climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with a bunch of other celebs.
I know times are tough and all that but I felt that it was right to give a few pounds for this really good cause. I'm not doing anything else for Red Nose day so at least I have contributed in some small way. It was really easy to do and if you want to support Chris (or one of the other celebs) check out the radio one home page or try this link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/chrismoyles/red_nose_climb_09.shtml
... to support chris.
This is the whole reason why my pic is a red square at the mo. It started on twitter as a kinda "sticker" idea to encourage others to donate. I've put it here on my blog too. :)

What did I learn today?
1. Cancelling lectures at the last minute after you have travelled all the way to uni is NOT cool.
2. Its fun watching people play with cool, shiny new machines. They get so excited. :)
3. Barry M dazzle dust in no. 53 is awesome for a neutralish, browny smokey eye look.
4. The need for spring clothes shopping grows stronger every day.
So spring is officially here. Saw quite a number of ladies with their bare legs out today. Not that remarkable I hear you say. Fair do's but then again it is Scotland and it is only Febuary. I've still got my coat and scarf on. lol
love love. more laters. :) xxx

What I learnt today......
1. Prompt email replies are good.
2. The tea tree soap from the body shop is working wonders on my face. So much better for me than the clinique facial soap (and so much cheaper).
3. There is never enough information available on the topic you are researching. Why is this?
4. Spring is coming. I saw lots of pretty snowdrops and daffodils starting to come up. :)
Thats about it.... but I'll be posting my very own "What I'm using right now" post soon thanks to the lovely llyangel tagging me. Thanks huni. :)

1. Organisation is important. Especially if other people are relying on you. Get with this.
2. Day off school for kids = city full of kids. Everywhere.
3. Benefit's High Beam applied slighty more liberally is gorgeous.
4. I have 4ish weeks to get a Ball dress = argh!
:) What did you learn today?

-my ipod touch for surfing the net randomly using wi-fi
-the gym for pounding the treadmill
-Nivea Soft moisturiser
-the silly amount of uni work
-being in uni till 6pm tomo. :(
....1) You Rebel. This is basically a tinted moisturiser. (Its also available in a lighter shade) It was £19.50 for 50ml. I wanted to try this for days when I don't want to wear foundation and be caked in make-up but still have some kind of coverage to attempt to even out my skin. It also appealed because its oil-free. Also has SPF 15 so great for summer. (Or all year around if you are lucky enough to live in a sunny place. lol)
So what do I think of my two new products. Its now been so shamefully long since I got them that Im now able to offer you some kind of opinion. :)
1)You Rebel. I think I like it. Its not wow. And it certainly does not solve all of my face/complexion issues, but then again I didnt think it would. It does provide a nice light coverage and even out my skin tone a bit. However, it doesnt blend as well as I thought it would. I think it will be good for when I go on holiday and its too hot for foundation.
2)High Beam. Love it. Easy to use. Quick. Pretty effect. Love it. So thats that. :)
I also got some of M.A.C's Blot Powder but thats not very exciting. I do LOVE that product though. It goes everywhere with me. :)
Enough rambling for now...

As for the T-Zone Body Spray all is going well. Still not been using it that long but I'm really happy with the way its going. My chest is looking much clearer - no spots or breakouts. And to be honest I think there would of been by now if I hadn't been using it. Difficult to report any improvement on my back. The only thing I would say is that it seems to prevent spots and help maintain clearer skin but it doesn't seem to help get rid spots that are already there. I'm using it twice a day after a shower. Anyone else tried this?
I went to MAC yesterday afternoon very briefly. Was pretty busy at my local counter. I looked, well more glanced, at the BBR collection. It looked very dull. I just picked up some MAC powder and got out quick. I then headed to the benefit counter at a Boots store and got two goodies. :) More about that in my next post. I need to take picys in all that jazz. ;)
I'm going to a beach party next week so I'm thinking about my make-up and outfit for that. I'll show you what I come up with. Oh its a beach party in a club btw. I dont live anywhere near an actual beach unfortunately. And yes it is going to be freezing. So not my idea. :p
Oh random thought. I have a strange longing to try out the MAC creamsheen lipglosses. Ive read loads of reviews about them. Good and bad ones. Still I kinda want to try them.
Thats all for now. :)

Here it is: Nivea Soft Intensive Moisturising Cream. I first tried this after Fafinettex3 mentioned it in one of her YouTube vids. I initially bought it in a tube and used it as a face moisturiser. But this time I'm going to use it all over. :) I'm having dry skin issues on my arms and elbows with all this cold weather and leaning on desks. lol
Next purchase was this:
Quickies Nail Varnish Remover Pads. Not tried these before but they were cheap. 80-somthing pence. Admittedly a bottle of nail polish remover is probably better value but I like the fact that you don't get that horrible smell with pads. :)
T-Zone Clear Por Body Spray. I saw this while waiting in the queue to pay. Only £1.99 if I remember correctly. Never seen anything like this before so I thought I'd give it a go. Its antibacterial and you spray it on your chest, shoulders, back etc to prevent spots. I've only used it twice so far but only good things to report back so far.
1. It sprays upside down. No matter what the angulation of the bottle it still delivers a fine mist of product.
2. It smells ok. Not amazing. But not horrible. And its only very very very subtle.
3. Doesn't leave my skin feeling unpleasant in any way.
I'll report back on (hopefully) spot reduction soon.
Anyone else tried it?

1. I LOVE make-up. (using it, buying it, reading about it...blah blah blah)
2. I'm a student
3. I live in the UK
4. I'm easily distracted and very new to this whole blogging thingy.
What I intend to write about here... well mainly about make-up and shopping and all other things girly.
I hope to offer my humble opinion to anyone kind enough to read it about my beauty and cosmetic purchases. :)
p.s. I'll take this early opportunity to warn you of some perhaps rather dubious spellings....Sorry in advance. :P
