25 Thoughts everyone has on a night out! Don’t you agree?

After the show it’s the after party and after the party it’s the HORRIBLE HANGOVER.
From start to finish i’m sure you’ll agree we have all had nights out where most of these have happened, but would we change them? Of course we wouldn’t.

1. What do i wear? Am i cool enough for this? Is this too much?

2. How much make up is too much make up? Answer…I don’t know i’m applying eyeliner after way too much alcohol.

3. GLITTER GLITTER WHO HAS THE GLITTER?. It ain’t a party until everyone in your party is covered in glitter.

Top 5 Female TV Characters.

Hello everyone!

So today i’m going to share with you my favourite female TV Characters!
Now, something you may not know about me is just how much i LOVE watching tv. (Well, Netflix, but you get the idea) That’s why i decided to share with you some of my favourite TV characters.

Don’t worry i won’t tell you ALL of them as we could be here until 2017. No seriously, the list of shows i watch/watched is a little bit crazy. Also i’ve tried to give away no spoilers so it should all be ok.

Anyway, on with the list!

First up is ;

Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) from the show Parks and Recreation. Leslie is everything right with the world. She is optimistic, hard working, determined and extremely loveable. When i watched this show i instantly adored her character. She radiates positivity in such a humorous way and i can only wish that i had half as much enthusiasm as she does!

giphy (3)

Bo Dennis (Anna Silk) from Lost Girl. Bo is a bad ass mother fu***er. That is without a doubt the main reason i loved this character, its her power and strength that is charming. Watching her put the worlds to right in this secret Fae world, whilst using her supernatural charm to win and sometimes even kill her opponents. Are you kidding me? What about that isn’t just cool. A female lead, going around and sorting shit out. YOU GO GIRL.

giphy (2)

Spencer Hastings (Troian Bellisario) from Pretty Little Liars. Ok so until maybe season 4 i wasn’t a huge Spencer fan but i have just adored her in these later seasons. I think her character is actually one of the best. She feels human to me. What i mean by that, is Spencer as a character could be someone i know in real life. She’s a hard working student, she has her realistic problems for someone of that age, she isn’t the obvious comic in the show but her dry wit is relatable and unlike the other girls in the show i find her the most down to earth character.

giphy (4)

Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) on Greys Anatomy. As soon as Arizona arrived in Greys i was a fan of hers, she is a paediatric doctor for crying out loud, she saves tiny babies whilst wearing Heelys. Adorable. Also, she is the character responsible for perhaps my favourite monologue within a show Good Man in a Storm.Seriously go to Youtube and watch that monologue, it is mind blowing, Jessica Capshaw- take a bow. Her character became the perfect match for Doctor Calliope and their wedding was clearly inspirational to a lot of the LGBT community. Throughout all her ups and downs I cannot help but feel emotionally invested with this character. Perhaps what i like about Arizona is her tiny but mighty vibe she gives off.

giphy (1)

Samantha Jones (Candace Bushnell) Sex and The City. Samantha is the girl everyone wishes they were a little bit more like. Out-spoken, confident and the life of any social situation. Samantha is independent and has a no-filter way of living. Her lavish lifestyle is incredibly fitting, and out of the four of them she should be the one you hate however unlike the other three Samantha is never boring and thats why you cant help but like her. She’s not tied down by kids, money or being sad about something silly unlike some *cough* Carrie *cough* She is living and i love it. 

giphy (5)

Finally, now this is not so much a character as i couldn’t pick just one but

Tatiana Maslany in Orphan Black. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? i don’t even know if i can say much more on the subject, but anyone who can play that many characters and have me feeling so many different feels, surely deserves a mention on this list!

giphy (6).gif

So there you have it guys, i did have to make this list smaller so if you want a part 2 i can add more of my favourites there and also my favourite male characters?!

Thanks again for reading,
Let me know in the comments who are your favourites!

What’s top of the playlist this month?

Hello everyone, It’s back, it’s been quite a while now since i last did this kind of post because admittedly i’ve been listening to more podcasts than Spotify but i thought i’d give you a quick update of what’s on my latest playlist.

1. SIA.
Again, like every other playlist post i do, i will start with Sia.
Taken from her This is Acting album is my new favourite; Cheap Thrills.
Favourite Lyric; ‘baby i don’t need dollar bills to have fun tonight’
I just love this song. It’s guranteed to make you dance, as with all Sia songs i instantly fell in love with the lyrics, her voice, EVERYTHING. Sia never fails to make incredible music i’m always obsessed with at least one/two/three songs on her new albums and this time, it’s Cheap Thrills.

giphy (54)

2.DIE ANTWOORD.
I’m here again obsessed with the weird and wonderful sounds from Die Antwoord.
in particular; I Fink U Freeky / Baby’s on Fire.
Favourite Lyric:I fink u freeky and I like you a lot /Don’t worry ’bout it, just blow a kiss to me. I like danger, romance and mystery. I’m a lucky ducky, get mad shit for free. I rock more bling than Mr. T.
There is something about these two songs that make me want to go to the nearest party available and dance. It’s the kind of music you can release your inner bitch out of, get weird and let go.

giphy (55)

3.ELLIE GOULDING.
Ok so quite the opposite to my other choices this one is
Devotion – Acoustic Version.
Favourite Lyric:Cause this is devotion, I am lost, You’re the only one I see, Our bodies in motion, I am caught, Floating in your gravity
I recently saw Ellie Goulding in concert and was blown away by the acoustic version of this that she performed. It’s incredibly beautiful and 1000%better than the version released on her Delirium album. Such an honest raw and emotional song with beautiful lyrics.

giphy (56)

4.ARIANA GRANDE
Ariana is back and this is a killer song.
Dangerous Woman.
Favourite Lyric: Somethin’ ’bout you makes me feel like a dangerous woman.
Somethin’ ’bout, somethin’ ’bout, somethin’ ’bout you.
Ariana i love this song. Now correct me if i’m wrong but doesn’t it make you feel empowered when you listen to this. Ready to conquer the world? It definitely does for me. It has the same vibe as what Bad Blood gives off, only with Ariana’s insane vocals. That girl can saaaaaaaang.

giphy (57)

5.ZARA LARSSON.
This may just be my new getting ready song, it’s so damn catchy.
Lush Life.
Favourite lyric:Yeah Imma dance my heart out ’til the dawn, But I won’t be done when morning comes, Doin’ it all night, all summer, Gonna spend it like no other
Ok so it’s not the most genius of songs, but it’s got the perfect summer vibe to it, it’s so catchy and i just love this girls voice. It makes me want to grab a bag and pop off on holiday. Yes Please.

giphy (58)

6. BEYONCÉ / LEMONADE.

Now let’s be real there is no way this album wasn’t going to be on here! It’s beyond incredible. I don’t think I can pick just one favourite song never mind one line of lyrics.
Also a video…A VIDEO. SLAY BEYONCE SLAYYYYYYYYY.

Bandzee: Add a pop of colour to your hairstyles.

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far.

Today i’m going to be showing you the wonderful new hair bands i received from Bandzee*.

Bandzee are a company who know how to do hair ties!! You’ve probably seen hair ties like these around. They are the flat ones that sit on your wrist and almost double as bracelets.

 

Made from super soft elastic, these bands are less likely to break than your average bundle of bobbles you picked up for 99p in Superdrug. They are also better for your hair as they wont tug and pull as much. Fabulous!

The bands come in sets of four and cost £5.95 per pack.

Here is a picture of the beautiful ones I have in my collection;

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA          Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

The quality of these bands are great.They stretch pretty well and hold their natural shape after too, the only thing I wish was possible was for the patterned ones to be printed on both sides.

Here are my favourite patterned ones I have in my bundle;

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA          Processed with VSCO with f3 preset

 I love the colours used in these three. They really have the wow factor to add a little fun to boring and repetitive hairstyles.
(Sidenote; see what I mean? They could be bracelets, Cute Hey!)

The first time I wore my bands out I used them at the end of my braids. To add a pop of colour and a little bit of sass to my hairstyle.

 

I think they just look super cute! I wish you could buy pairs of the same styles though as I would love matching bands to finish my braids.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my new favourite hair ties. I suggest you go look at the Bandzee website here; Bandzee and find the right bundle for you!

They also have a monthly subscription box available at just £4.96 BARGAIN!

 
Thanks for reading, let me know which set you think is the best

Thanks,

Danielle Jade.

Calling all beauty lovers! Make up Brushes – edition.

Hello beautiful people!

Today’s post is all about the wonderful make up brushes from http://www.makeupbrushes.co.uk

When I first heard about these guys I instantly fell in love with the website. They host a whole load of different brands in the same place so you can mix and match your brushes In one simple place. Having not heard of some of the brands before I was more than excited to try some of them out. I chose to go with So Eco and Japonesque.

 
I love everything about the So Eco company, all the products are designed to be biodegradable and sustainable, right down to the packaging.

First up is the So Eco finishing brush*.


Now, this lightweight brush is one of the softest things I’ve ever used. The double length cut bristles are like tiny little feathers against my face. Honestly I just sat stroking my face like a crazy person with this before I used it, it’s that soft. The brush itself suggests you use it with blusher to finish your look however if you’re like myself and have a somewhat smaller face this brush may swamp the size of your cheeks. That’s why I’ve chosen to use it with my finishing powder. It just helps it glide on effortlessly.

What would I rate this products out of 10? 7/10 soft, easy to use but for a different intention so I cannot give it 10.

Next up the Japonesque Kumadorie fan brush*.

 
Ok this item is cool. It’s as light as a feather and the almost cord like feel the handle gives off makes the brush feel more like a wand than anything else. It’s easy to grip because of the intricatly designed handle and the bristles catch the perfect amount of product when applying. I’d honestly never had a fan brush before now and I will not be turning back, as someone who loves a good highlighter I can’t even begin to imagine how wrong I was applying it before this brush, it really helps a little go a long way and creates more precise application.

I’d give this product a solid 9/10 (though i adore the design, the handle did feel funny for the fist couple of uses)

Finally back to So Eco* for this last set.

 

First I must say I love that it arrived in a little press stud  bag. This makes for easy travel. The set contains 5 brushes which are;

 I’m going to say I love the variation you’re getting with this bundle, they have thought about the whole eye area and not just the lids, for example, the eyebrow comb vs the mascara wand. It’s about a lot more than just eyeshadow with this set.

The fineliner brush is a thin brush almost like a lip liner, I used this to add a dark outline around the eye. The brush held the product well but I did go over it in eyeliner. I’m just not sure if I’ll get much use out of this brush using it solely for its intended purpose but I will use it more for creating cut crease eye looks.

The eyebrow comb is my favourite if you’ve seen my face you will be able to tell, I put a lot of time into my eyebrows. I love combing them, shaping them, filling them in. This brush just makes that so much easier!

 
The eye shading brush is perfect for creating an all over colour on the lids, great size and picks up colour well.

The angled eyeliner brush, again another brush I have changed the purpose of, I use this one to fill in my brows! I just love the straight angled line it can create.

Finally the mascara wand I used with my mascara primer to separate the lashes before applying mascara.

Out of ten I give this bundle 10! Despite changing some of the uses, I adore the different applicators!

I over the moon with my brushes and I think I’m going to love these the more I use them.

Thank you to Make Up Brushes Uk for these sets. I want to try everything you have now!

What went on at the Blogging event: Bloggers Fashion Week! 

Hello everyone me again.

Hope you’re all enjoying this beautiful sunshine we’ve had for the past few days.

Today’s post is all about the last event I attended at Provisonal Studios Hoxton. Again hosted by the wonderful Bloggers Hangout. After having my invitation land in my inbox I immediately looked at the wonderful brands that were attending and got incredibly excited!

Some I had heard of before, some I had never heard of before and I was more than excited to have the chance to look and learn about both new and old brands.

Before heading to the event I picked out my outfit, standard skinny black jeans, boots, a cropped white tee, leather jacket and a hat. I know. A hat, I never wear hats.

12496165_10207661663514472_2656967235709781340_o

I grabbed my trusty little Olympus camera and jumped in to my Uber.
Arriving at the studios at around 12:30 I was immediately excited to see the more casual and calm room than the previous event. There wasn’t half as many people and I think this was really due to the fact of the time but also because the day was in two sessions. One 12-3pm one 6-9pm.

I gave myself enough time at the event to chat to pretty much all the brands. From nails to hair, face to feet, make up to keeping fit. There were all sorts of brands ready to offer tips, tricks and samples of their products.

I learnt so much in such a short time at the event and I cannot wait to show you all the items I was gifted. Side note; these posts are coming there is just so much to trial and show you all-stay tuned for those, i’m working my way through the products! I’ll have posts coming from Annie Haak, Lab 2 beauty, Sensationail, Leighton Denny, Magnitone, Monuskin, Weleda, Amie, Paul Mitchell, The Curl Company, SBC gels & Kenneth Turner.

I am loving the Blogger Hangout events, i love talking to the brands, i loved learning so much and i cannot wait to see more in the future.

Thanks for reading everyone.

Bronzed and beautiful; get the look! 

Hello everyone!

Today’s post is just a quick update on what I used to create this look;

 
I had so many of you asking where different aspects of this look came from so thought why not do a quick flat lay and show you all!

 
Ta-daaaa.

The end. No I’m totally kidding!

Let’s take a look at what I used to create the base of my make up!

 
I recently fell in love with this Barry M primer. It’s amazing. It feels exactly like a moisturiser when you apply it rather than others that I have used which feel like a heavy gel and block my skin. It’s perfect for evening out the skin tone and creating a base for your make up.

Using my real technique brush I apply a small amount of the Mac Studio Fix fluid in the shade NW13 to my face. I say small amount as this foundation can sometimes look a little heavy because of its excellent coverage!

To set this all, I used the rimmel lasting perfection powder sweeping it all over my face and locking in the work so far.

Next is my favourite step; contour. Using my all time top palette the Anastasia Beverley Hills contour kit and the real technique brush I took the two middle shades to create a highlight and contour duo. If you don’t already I highly recommend adding this kit to your make up collection. It’s become a staple in mine.

 
Next up… Eyes.

 
First thing I always do when starting eye make up. I apply the Manna Kadar lash primer. The clear gel will help to make them appear thicker and fuller all day long.

Ok first things first; Eyebrows. I start off with the rimmel brow this way and comb the product through my brows to lift and shade them. I then take the the sleek brown duo in the shade light to create my eyebrows. Using the wax to outline what shape I want the brows I line the lower outside edge all the way along the arch to the tip and then fill them in using the powder. Tadaaaaa.

 
Using the three eyeshadows above I take the marks brush and start with the White/silver shimmer. I then take the dark brown Kiko eyeshadow and place this colour into the crease, before I blend this I take my favourite gold from Kiko and place it in the middle. At this point you will have three strips of different colours. To create this almost ombré eyeshadow look I then take my Barry M shadow brush and from the corner to the outer of the eye I blend blend blend.

I then finish the eyes with a small black line, using the supercat just to emphasise the eyes, and finish with the Benefit They’re Real! Mascara.

Finally it’s time for lips.

 
Using the Natural collection brown lip liner I outline the shape of my mouth emphasising the Cupid’s bow and paint on revlons choco-licious.

So there you have it! I hope this helped clear up any questions you have about what I may have used.

Thanks for reading
