Make-Up Photo Meme: At Arm's Reach.

The thing with early mornings is that you don't what to rummage around looking for what make-up you want to use. For me, I use whatever is in arm's distance from my vision lol.
These have been the bits of make-up I have been using for the pass two weeks or so. I use them, leave them lying around, and use them again the next day. The cycle goes on, until I dig something else out and leave them out haha.

The ever so lovely Thanh tagged me this 11 Questions tag, so here goes.

11 facts about me:

I'm the oldest of four.
❤ I tend to zone out when I'm thinking and it worries people because I go all quiet.
I'm reserved when you first meet me, but after I'm comfortable I won't stop talking.
❤ My current playlist is just B2st/Beast atm. Fiction in Fiction...
❤ I've been working in retail since the start of my working life.
❤ I've never had my hair cut at a salon before, my sister has always done it for me.
❤ I don't care about my hair as much because it grows way to quick to care haha.
❤ I'm 5ft1.
❤ Size 4 in shoes.
❤ I love everything cinnamon, Alice in Wonderland, blossom, green tea (and a few more) related.
❤ I have more amazing friends I've met through blogging/twitter that I have in 'real life'.

Thanh's 11 Questions:

What is the most inspiring quote you have come across?
I'm not one that make a mental note of quotes. By all means I love and read them, I oo and ahh at them but I don't remember them...

What do you love most about yourself?
I'm carefree and understanding.

Do you believe in forgive and forget?
Yes, life is too short to hold grudges. I will forgive and forget but doesn't mean you'll still be in my life. 

If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
The first thing that pops into my mind at the moment is flying. So I can get from one place to another in record time and be able to sleep a little more haha.

Family, friends and music?

❤ What is the best thing that has happened to you so far?
Blogging has opened my eyes to another world and I have met, got to know and found amazing friends from it.

To say I'm not would be a lie, everyone is jealous one way or another.  I'm a jealous person but not for long lol.

❤ What is the one thing that will always get you through the day?

❤ Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Driving a car. I passed my test a few months ago but at this present time have no reason to maintain a car. I want to be in a job I enjoy and hopefully know where I want to be.

❤ Turn ons?
My likes? 
Pretty hair styles. Polite people. Musical talented people. Make up. Music. People with manners. Cliche k-dramas. Food! Meeting people.

❤ Turn offs?
My don't likes:
Smelly people. Obvious fake tans. Rude people. Really loud people. Childish people (there's a time and place if you want to be childish).Customers from a retail employee's point of view. People who don't look after their kids in public places :( Strong scents. Overly sweet stuff.

BLEND Collective} Balancing Body Moisturiser.

Blend Collective} is a brand developed and created in the UK. Their product range falls under three fragrance blends, each blend contains four different bodycare products.
What's different about Blend Collective is that all their products are at least 99% of natural, formulated with essential oils, organic ingredients and are chemical free.
Each blends were created by a team of aromatherapy and perfume expert to create a series of luxury products.

 I expressed my interest in this brand as I had never been really interested in natural products, purely because there are so many brands out there. Although I couldn't attend the event, I was sent this body moisturiser to try.

This moisturiser (£20) is from the Balancing fragrance blend.

 "A balancing blend of star jasmine, geranium, vetiver and rose essential oils chosen for their harmonising, flora character together with vitamin rich Blackcurrant, Shea Butter and Evening Primrose."

I must admit, when I first used the moisturiser, the smell of all those ingredients was really overpowering. Obviously as a fragrance blend, it would have a fragrance. It's was strong for me, especially the jasmine, as I'm quite sensitive to smells-I couldn't walk into LUSH before, just walking pass gave me a headache- however as I mostly use this product on my arms and legs, I got used to the smell and it eventually disappeared.

 One thing I look for in body creams/moisturisers is the texture.

I don't know if you can tell by my photo, but the texture is really light. I love creams with this kind of texture, I don't like creams that are too thick, that sits on my skin and are stinky feeling yuk!
This moisturising sinks into my skin quickly, I don't like sitting there waiting for cream to dry haha impatient me XD

All in all I enjoy using the balancing body moisturiser. It's nice to know that this product not only moisturises but it's good for your skin too.

Blend Collective} is available from their very own website.

Fangirling: Kim Junsu (XIA) TARANTALLEGRA!!

Kim Junsu!!! 
Junsu, or XIA (why is it spelt like that? LOL Xiah to me) of JYJ/DBSK has finally released a full solo album and I'm so excited! Junsu has one of the most beautiful singing voices I have ever heard, I love every song he's in :D

Where do I start? His album titled TARANTALLEGRA comes from no other than Harry Potter, it's the spell that jinx someone and makes their legs move and dance uncontrollably.
His title track is also named TARANTALLEGRA (so long! hahaha), the MV was released yesterday!

The more I watch the video, the more I like it. The first time I was like this :O and this O_o at the same time. The MV is everything in one lol, unique, weird, amazing, creative, sexy.... I really love how Junsu brought Death (the character he played in the musical Elizabeth) into this, the dark make-up, nail varnish, it's so mysterious! I hate that red hairstyle thing though eww. Platinum blond suits him so well though!!! The song features Flowsik, who isn't that random guy in the MV lipsyncing Flowsik's lines XD

The album is a mix of dance tracks and ballads, which I particularly favour. The emotion in Junsu's ballads are seriously breathtaking.

I Don't Like Love is a OST from Rooftop Prince, which fellow band mate Yoochun is in. A drama which I had fangirl about before lol. If you haven't seen it yet, you are missing out, I'm wowed by the script. Loving it!
How perfect is this song? 

No Gain, written and composed but the other J (Jaejoong) of JYJ. I love the change of tempo throughout the song 

You can check out the rest of the tracks from TARANTALLEGRA, which was released today, on this post via allkpop.

Is anyone else a fan? :)

I love the neon trend. I however am not brave enough to wear neon clothing, I doubt I could pull if off...
But I do love these small additions that adds pop of colour to a outfit, perfect for the miserable weather we have been having.

Benefit Hervana.

Benefit Hervana (yayyy thanks Boots points!) was one of the blushes I had been wanting to try since they were released in the Benefit family. You know I absolutely love purple blushes; although this leans more on the pinker side, it still bears no exception.

I'm not sure how I feel about Benefits cardboard box packaging, I feel as though they were wear away quickly and that top part will eventually rip off :/

Apart from that I love the name, design and shade of the blush. It swatches more pink than purple as well when you swirl it around all the shades, I guess the colour depends on what brush and colour you concentrate on picking up.

Totally in love with this blush at the moment, a must buy from me! :D
