Asos & Primark haul

Heyyy everyone, I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while, I haven't been home in just over a week and I didn't take my laptop with me. I have so many posts ideas to do yay!

Just thought I'd share what I bought with you all :)


Miss KG flat £24 - I had these for christmas which I still have but in a size 5 and they are way to small. These are a 6 and they are still to small!! My normal shoe size is a 5! So im disappointed with these, has anyone else had the same problem with Miss KG flats?

Asos shorts £18 - I love these! Because of the colour it makes me looked some much more tanned, and they don't show my bum at all, and I thought they were a really good price for Asos!

River island £55 - As soon as I seen these I feel in love with them!


Primark Mid hem dress  £18- At first I wasn't to sure about this dress, but I had seen it on a friend and it looked gorgeous! I absolutely love the colours of this dress! Considering im only 5ft2 It fits me perfectly! I bought this for when I go on holiday or shopping (when its sunny where I live,which is never!)

Primark Sandals £8 -I love these! Theres a pair in Kurt Geiger which is basically exactly the same but for £40. So I can't fault these sandals

Primark shirt £10 - My favourite part about this is the collar, and I actually wore this out the other night and I defiantly can't fault the price!

Love Becca

Have I found my perfect foundation?!

No7 Intelligent Balance Mousse foundation £12.50

For years and years I have been on a search for a perfect foundation, ranging from expensive to inexpensive.
  I always thought because a foundation is expensive e.g £20-£40 I thought it would be good! Ohh how I was wrong.
  I always try to look for something which has an air brush finished look. I have an oily T-zone, so I stay away from anything that could potentially shine. I also try to look for something that stays on for as long as possible with out touching up (I'm not a touch up through the day kind of girl)

 The only brand which I've heard a lot about but have never tried, is No7, and I will defiantly be purchasing from this Brand again!

  • This is the first foundation the I haven't had use a powder to finish the look off
  • It last literally all day! 
  • Its a mousse consistency 
  • my friends have purchased this and it has lasted them a good 5 months 
  • Its an extremely reasonable price £12.50
  • Can build up the coverage 
  • Minimises my pores
  • Has a soft velvet feel to it 
  • Doesn't have a strong smell 
  • Doesn't feel like I have makeup on  
  • Does not make a skin break out
  • Does not go patchy/shiny
  • I have loads of compliments on how clear my skin looks.

  • If you have dry patches of skin it does show then, its best to moisturise before apply this foundation (If you have dry skin).
  • Lack of variety in shades.
  • I dont like applying it with my fingers (I've tried a sponge and I didn't like that either).
  • Packaging is a bit of an awkward shape to get to foundation out.
  • Does not always cover red spots, but you can resolve the by using concealer.

    I hope this pro's and con's list is helpful!

Here are a few foundations I've tried that I prefer No7 over.

-Teint Idole 24 Hrs.
-Teint Miracle
- Teint Idole Silky Matte
- Photogenic Lumessence

-Perfect Touch foundation

Estee Lauder 
-Double Wear 

-Studio fix 

-Dream satin liquid
-Dream matte mouse

-Rich Liquid

-Mat Lumiere 

As you can tell, I've tried quite a few different foundation, and non of these have really taken my fancy. But I've heard so many good things about some foundation listed above, but sadly they just don't work for me. 

Have you ever tried No7, if you have what do you think of it? I'd love to know

Pro active - isit worth the splurge ?

I mentioned before I have used proactive in the past for a couple of months, but when I ran out I didn't buy it again because 1, I thought I could find something that worked the same for cheaper. 2, I wanted to try something new and 3, I thought I could buy a few new tops with that £40!!
  So I turned to good old trusted 'Simple' Gel wash and Toner, for a month it work well, a few spots here and there but nothing major. But last week my skin broke out like there was no tomorrow!! Its true that when you have clear skin you have so much more confidence, and my skin was so bad, I didn't really feel like going out any where.
  This made me realise that Proactive was the best skin care I have ever used, whilst I was using it, all my black heads went, my skin was near enough perfect and I wanted that perfect skin back! 
  So I went online to boots and took advantage of the 3 for 2 offer on Proactive. Personally to me it is worth the money if you want clear skin. I have heard that this doesn't work for everyone, but everyone who I know who uses it, it works wonders. 
 My order arrived on Tuesday, and immediately started using using it, this week bring out any spots which were under the skin (I hate this stage) and from then on it starts to clear your skin.

Step 1
This removes any dirty/oils from your face and includes little soft exfoliating beads

Step 2
Apply this to a cotton pad, then to your face 

Step 3
This is a cream consistency which you gently rub into your face, and your finished!

Have you got any skin products which really work or do not work for you ?
