Kim Kardashian Perfume Review

hey guys, i know i have mentioned Kim Kardashian's perfume a few times in previous posts but i just love it so much so i thought i would do a review on it.
i absolutely love doing reviews but i haven't what you guys think about them so tell you want more/less of them.
this perfume is so feminine and distinctive, you instantly recognize it which i love a perfume to have that wow smell about it.
not only does it have these qualities but i also think it has a really rich smell to it, and when you wear it i think people assume you are well off, which is always good!
i checked out what other people thought about it and these are some of the feedback i got:
its sexy, sensual, long-lasting, great smell great value.
they said its best uses were:
to wear on evenings, special occasions, anytime, and they said it was a signature fragrance.

i definitely agree with all of these things, and if you haven't smelled it yet, order it online now and try it, its amazing!
the price varies depending where you buy it from but its from £22 to £28.

i hope you enjoyed this post, comment and give me feedback, tell me if you try and please follow me,

Every Day Makeup Routine

ive checked a lot of blogs, and ive seen that every day makeup routines are a big favourite, on you tube as well. so today i thought i would join you all and do one myself.
(i wash my face first)
1. max factor facefinity compact powder
i first of all apply this evenly across my skin, and the amount i wear will vary on how good or bad my skin looks on that morning, you can get this from drugstores for £10.99. i like my skin not too tanned, because i don't want it to look fake so i wear shade 02 ivory.

2. rimmel sun shimmer bronzer
i apply this with a bronzer brush, and i suck in my cheeks to define my cheek bones and apply it there to make them look more defined. i know some people like to put it over their whole face but mine is shimmery so i never do that, i also think it can sometimes look fake if you put it all over.
4. e.l.f eye primer and liner sealer
this is one of my favourite products, you put the eye primer on first so your eyeshadow or eyeliner doesnt fade and then put the sealer over the top so your makeup doesnt crease. i got this from the e.l.f store for £3.75. ( i also apply the primer under my eye to cover up dark circles, it works the same as concealer!)
4. bourjois eye shadow
i love to wear a light eye shadow that just makes my eyes have a bit of colour and makes them shimmer. because i use shade 08 it is pale and shimmery so i wear it right up to my brow bone.this is £2.99 from drugstores.                          
                                                     #8 essential
5. max factor kohl eye liner.
i love this eye liner, its my absolute favourite because it goes on really smoothly and stays on all day. i put have at least 6! i dont usually recommend this unless im doing a review but, if you dont have this you need it! anyway, i apply this to the top of my lid, in just a thin line to give my eye some tone. this is £4.99 from drugstores.          

6. maybelline define a lash mascara
i love this mascara, because it doesnt make your eyelashes go clumpy, they go very well separated and really natural. i wear this on this top and bottom lashes and it really makes your eye lashes stand out. get it now!
7. benefit posie tint
i love this because it makes you look so natural, but your lips go such a lovely colour. its very expensive but you hardly need any and it last for so long. it stays on all day and looks great. this is £24.50 from Debenhams but is worth it!

so this is my every day makeup routine, depending on where i am going i do wear more/less, but this is what i wear on a daily basis, i hope you enjoyed this post:)

hey guys, so i went shopping with my cousin the other day and i really wanted to do an ootd for it, i haven't got around to it until now. we went out when it was snowing so we had to wrap a lot!
i dont like to use pictures of myself for ootd's and i also forgot to take more than one.
tell me if you prefer it with using pictures or pictures off the internet though.
i wore this skirt which is from urban outfitters, it was reduced from £35.00 down to £10.00 so id hurry if you want to get it!

this was the jump i wore out, sorry it isnt very good quality, it isnt on the website and i just found this from the day i bought it. this was from h&m and was £10. 


i then wore this denim jacket over my jumper which i got from a charity shop for £1!


i then finished off my outfit with tights, converse and a kardashian bag.

i hope you liked this post, comment and give me feedback, love gyps x x

Anyone Who has Upcoming Exams!

to anyone who has upcoming exams, please take the time to read this new post!
so i have a few exams coming up and i thought it would be a good idea to find websites i can revise from. i found the best one i think i have ever found. its called get revising and i honestly think its amazing. you can type in any subject and topic, and get noted for it, make revision cards, make mindmaps and the best thing about it is you can make a revision timetable.

this is the revision timetable and you can choose a different colour for each exam which i think is great. you just type in the details about the exam and you can alter it in case you need more time to revise for one subject then it turns it into this table for you.


this is what the homepage looks like for anyone who wasnt sure. also im sorry its not like my usual post i just wanted to help any of you people that needed and i hope this did help. comment if there is any ive missed out, i love you all gyps x x

How I Do My Hair

hey guys, so this post is about how i do my hair, i dont want it to sound like im bragging or anything so im sorry if it comes across that way.
i get tons of people ask me how i do my hair, whenever i meet someone new they ask if its natural or how i do it etc and its simple and easy.
the way to get it to look curly/wavy but not frizzy is easy if you have the right products, you don't even need any time!
i have a shower every day and depending on how my hair has gone, i either wash it everyday or everyday or other day. i use the body shop ice blue shampoo which you can get from body shop stores or online for only £4.00 and it lasts a long time because you dont need to use a lot.
i then use head and shoulders conditioner because i think it makes you hair extra soft which is £2.79. i usually leave it in my hair while i shave my legs and then wash it out so between 5-7 minutes.

when i get out of the shower i brush my hair through with a brush and then the bits that frame my face, with a comb. i apply some advance techniques daily results serum to make sure my hair doesnt go frizzy, because it usually does when i dont use it. you only need the amount of a 5p coin because it doesnt spread a long way and you can get that from avon for £3.29.


depending what im doing throughout the day i either dry it with a hairdryer but with a defuser on the end or just leave it to do dry naturally.

i hope this post helped and if you try any of the products tell me how they worked on your hair, gyps x x
