Emojis That Need To Exist!

After watching some YouTube videos covering this topic, I started to think about the times when I need that certain emoji and it's just not there! 
Here is a list of a few emojis I would love in my life...


A Fingers Crossed Emoji
I feel this is in definite need. The countless times I have searched for that symbol and sadly it is not there.
'Two hour maths exam today *fingers crossed*'
'Today is my job interview, hope it goes well *fingers crossed*'

A Pampering Face
We have the girl having her hair cut or what looks like a head massage, but I feel we need a girl with cucumber slices on her eyes, and a face mask. Not only will the image be super cute, but well used.
'Spa weekend with the girls *pampered girl*'
'Four hours revising, need some me time!! *pampered girl*'

A Lily Flower
As a girl with the name Lily, I feel there needs to be a Lily in the flower section. We already have the rose and tulip image, why not a Lily?
'Want a late read of *lily flower* *rose flower*?'
'Happy Valentines Day! *lily flower*'


 A Backstage/VIP Pass
For them times when you want to post a picture on Instagram or twitter of when you and your friends went to a festival, concert or event? Or met a famous person backstage? This is the image you want in your caption or tweet!
'Such a good time at Wireless *vip pass*'
'#LFW *vip pass*'

A Box of Popcorn
When you are out at the cinema, or having a film night in, or even when you are sitting in your room on your own watching Netflix, this image would look great in a text or tweet!
*Want to come over mine on Friday for films? *popcorn*'
'I can't come, I'm on season three of Gossip Girl! *popcorn*'

A Sunbather
You know them endless photos on Instagram and twitter of people's feet at the poolside or on the beach, on holiday? A small image of them photos would be great and rather cute.
'Greece in 2 weeks!!*sunbathe*'
'Miss the Florida sun!*sunbathe*' 

A Hula Dancer
We have ballet dancers and a flamenco dancer, so why not a hula dancer? I hope to visit Hawaii in the future, and I feel that having that emoji would really help!
'Can't wait to go to Hawaii with the girls! *hula dancer*'
'Alice's 16th! Partayy! *hula dancer*'

A Giraffe
Just because who doesn't love giraffes?
'Hey, how are you? *giraffe*'
'I'm so tired *giraffe*'

What Emojis would you like?

My Weekly Love | Naked Basics Palette



This week I'm loving Naked Basics Palette by Urban Decay. The colours in the palette are so neutral and beautiful, perfect for day-to-day wear. The shadow is long lasting with great pigmentation. The packaging is small and pratical, which I love. 
Who doesn't love Urban Decay palettes anyway?

New You, New Gym Wardrobe

We have been in 2015 now for about about 3 weeks and I hope you are all having a good year so far! Many people, including me, may have set themselves new years resolutions, and many of you may have the same one as me, 'Get Fit!' I am not going to lie, I haven't been doing that great recently, by having my birthday a few weeks ago my diet has had quite a few treats in it, but it is all about to change as I have decided to rejoin my local gym!
With my 'new me' goal (cliche I know), I'd quite like a new gym wardrobe to boost my motivation. Here are some items I am may be stuffing in my gym bag soon.

Seamless Base Layer
H&M

My Weekly Love | Clarins Daily Energizer Cream


This week I am loving the Clarins Daily Energizer Cream. My skin absolutely adores this product due to the smooth texture and non-greasy consistency. The cream picks up my complexion whilst leaving my skin smooth, consequently a perfect base for makeup. The smell is a perfect freshness, ensuring you still feel clean after applying it.

My Weekly Love | Michelle Phan Make Up Your Life Guide

Welcome to My Weekly Loves!
Every Friday at 7pm I am going to write about something I am loving that week, and I hope you enjoy! Without further a do, let's get on with what I am loving this week...


This week I cannot stop reading the Michelle Phan's Make Up Your Life to Beauty, Style and Success Guide (bit of a mouthful). It's an absolute must-have for any lady! The books starts with an interesting introduction and a peep into Michelle's past ,and current, life, with stories of when she was young girl, her careers, and making YouTube videos. Her love for makeup is shown clearly through the guide, showing you tips and advice on beauty, and she even explores areas such as fashion and life advice.

Here are a few tips from the book:

'If your lips are thin, a bright or bold color will accentuate that. Try using nude shimmery lip gloss instead. It's great for making your lips look bigger than they are.'

'Use a cotton pad for safe eye makeup removal!'

'For me, makeup is about telling your story; it's celebrating the different moments in your life with a few subtle changes of liner, lipstick and shadow.'

'Volunteering is a great way to gain experience when you can't find a job.'

Whoever you are, you will love to flick through her many pages of wisdom, and so be sure to keep a copy handy on your dressing table at all times!

Label.M Hair Perfume


Perfume for your hair? I love it so much!
The Label.M Hair Perfume, whilst giving you a beautiful scent, gives your hair a beautiful shine and nourishes your locks. The scent is the perfect freshness, lightweight and leaves no residue on your hair.
A great bonus is that the fragrance can be used on your body too!

I wore this product on New Years Eve and i received many compliments, and a few people weirdly asked to smell my hair...awkward. I guarantee that this is a lovely product and the packaging is very cute too with a statement black bow around the bottle.
A great excuse to keep swishing your hair!
