My Favourite Christmas Movies

Hey everyone!

Christmas is getting so close and im so exicted!. Let’s be honest, everyone’s favourite thing about Decemeber isnt to sit on the couch with a big blanket and some Christmas movies it’s literaly the best thing in the world, it’s December 2nd and it is time to spent half your time watching Christmas movies, so heres my favourite Christmas movies.

  • Santa Buddies – I’m back again with the buddies because i honeslty do love them so much, i’ve never watched a set of movies so much and still love them so much honestly. Who doesn’t love a good talking dog movie?. I’d highly recomment it though it’s such a cute little Christmas movie.

  •  Santa Paws – Another talking dog movie, my bad! For real though it is such a cute and amazing movie about friendship, the bond between a dog and their owner aswell as believing and having hope and its just amazing and if you havent seen it you are defiently missing out big time, i litteraly want to cry everytime i watch it!!

  •  The Santa Clause 1,2&3 – Such amazing Christmas movies that I’ve been watching for as long as i can remeber, literally cant go a Christmas without watching atleast one of the three. I’m 100% sure everyone in the world has seen all three of these movies, they are litteraly always shown on Tv throughout December so you must have come across it at some point!.

  • A Christmas Carol – Okay this movie has defiently a movie everyone in the world has seen without a doubt, along with the rest it’s been a movie I have watched for years! It’s such an amazing movie that you need to watch at some point in your life honestly! Watch it if you havent already!!!

  • The Muppet Christmas Carol – Personally it isn’t one of my favourites but i thought I’d mention it because it’s a movie my family watch litteraly 20 times a year because it’s actually my dad’s favourite and he has been watching it since he was really young so we always watch it togetter at Christmas time.

  • Home Alone – Are you even human if you haven;t seen Home Alone!!?!?!? Honestley you cant say you havent seen it and if you havent stop reading this and go get yourself some popcorn and watch it!!!
  • Elf – Elf is littersly a must watch Christmas movie and no one can disagree with that, end of story.

  • The Grinch – Like Elf the Grinch is just a movie you have to watch, you dont need to say anything you just have to watch it.

  • The Polar Express – This is literally the most popular Christmas movie there is without a doubt, every year all i hear and see is people on about this movie and it is actually really good.

  • Fred Claus – Last but not least Fred Claus also a top favourite for me and i just love it simple as that.

What’s your favourite Christmas movie?

Hello December..

I can’t believe that December is already here, 2018 flew by so fast but anyways. For my December post’s I won’t be labeling it as blogmas because I’m not sure weather I’m going to be posting daily or not but I will be posting as much Christmas themed post’s as I possibly can!

I don’t want to commit and say I will do blogmas because I really don’t know if I will, I tried to go blogtober but so much happened in the month of October and I was also unhappy with loads of my posts when I went to upload them and I didn’t want to post anything that i wasn’t 100% on and with loads happening I didn’t have the time to write new posts, so that’s why I’m doing this but hopefully I will at least get between 10-15 posts up this month! Plus I am already writing and planning some really amazing posts for January and I plan on staying with it and posting on here regularly and as much as I can. Sometimes I just can never find the time to just sit down to write and edit posts and also make sure I’m 100% happy with it but I have a new schedule set for myself and have made time to create content for my website and I am really looking forward to it, this is the start of it and I will also have another post up tomorrow.

Also, I will be gone to an event all day tomorrow, it’s for a great cause and I will write a post all about it and it will hopefully be up during the week!

P U R E By PS

Primark are back with a brand new make-up line and I’m so excited! Recently Primark’s make-up game has been on another level and there is so many of their products I love and use regularly!. Whenever they come out with new products I usually buy one or two of them and do a review for you guys so here’s my review of P U R E!

I picked up a liquid lipstick & the eyeshadow palette because they were so pretty and I knew I’d get use out of them both!

Also available in the in the line:

A face palette; 3 highlight shades & 1 contour

2 shades of liquid lipsticks

2 shades of single highlighters

A portable mirror

4 shades of liquid highlighters

3 eye pigments

12 shades eyeshadow palette

Liquid lipstick:

I love liquid lipsticks, they are definitely something I always want to get more of because they are amazing and this one definitely falls under amazing. I love the colour so much, you could easily match it with many different eye looks! You could use it for an everyday look or glam it up! The glitter makes it stand out, it applies so good and is definitely one of my favourites. I also loved the packaging and the shape of the bottle it’s so pretty and tops the whole thing off! I would definitely recommend this, and I’m so sorry I didn’t pick up the other shade too!

Eyeshadow palette:

Eyeshadow palette’s are definitely my favourite make-up products, I love them so much, they are always the prettiest!. First, let’s talk about the layout, the shapes are amazing and I just love how they laid it out, it’s beautiful!. The second I opened this palette I fell in love with the colours they were all so beautiful and I could literally picture in my head the amount of eye looks that could be created with this palette. There is so much pigment in each shade and it blends so nicely. The glitter shades are definitely my favourites!. As well as it being hands down a fabulous palette it is also light and what I mean by light is when it’s on it doesn’t feel heavy on your skin or eyes, I find a lot of makeup is like this but not this palette. Also it wipes away nice and easy, you know after a long day of wearing makeup and you can’t wait to go home and just take it off? And when you scrub your eyes so much trying to wipe away the makeup that it starts to hurt and irritate you because of the rubbing? Well not this one! It rubs off so nice and gently and it’s amazing! Only €6 and it’s just amazing!!!

Blogtober starts Monday so I’ll see you then!❤️

My Top 5 Make-up Brands

Happy Mondayyy! So because I just posted a makeup giveaway on my Instagram (@lifeasbeccaa) so I thought I’d do a makeup related blog post! So here we go my top 5 make up brands

1. W7

I was the biggest fan of Mac for the longest time, mostly because of the mascara and I never thought I’d find a mascara I love as much as my Mac one but I was wrong! For Christmas I got a set of W7 makeup which I have never tried before and it included the mascara which was the very same as my Mac one (in my opinion) and it was so much more affordable which was a bonus, I also love their cover stick it’s the best thing to cover spots! Their eyeshadow palettes have always been one of my favourites I’ve like 5 palettes!

2. Catrice cosmetics 

As far as I know you can only get this in Primark and one or two pharmacies but I mostly only love this brand for their foundations and concealer because I don’t like heavy makeup, I’m more of a natural kind of girl so I find their foundation amazing and I haven’t really tried any other products of theirs but I’m sure they are amazing! I definitely will try some more and maybe do reviews on them because they are also an affordable brand!

3. L’Oreal Paris 

All of their brow products are my lifee! Now I know I said I don’t like full glam makeup but when I’m going out I sometimes wear a heavier and darker foundation and I literally only use L’Oreal!! Now my favourites products would have to be the infallible 24h-matte foundation in the shade natural rose, if you wear tan a lot I highly recommend this foundation because it gives your face a beautiful clear tan and it looks so pretty honestly! Also a foundation favourite would be true match it has the prettiest glitter undertone that I lovee! My eyebrow favourite would 100% have to be the brow artist plumper it’s so amazing to just throw it on your eyebrows when you are heading out so you don’t have to sit down and shape out your brows and all that!

4. Kylie Cosmetics 

All I have to say is I just love her lip kits so much and all the colours are just amazing and I’m also a big fan of her eyeshadow palettes such beautiful colours, also her collection are always so beautiful!

5. Maybelline New York

Literally there isn’t a product that I’ve tried of theirs that I don’t like, the Gigi Hadid collection was just beautiful and I wish I got literally every product, they are always doing the most amazing collections, I’m pretty sure everyone loves Maybelline!

These are the 5 most makeup brand I use but I love so many more too so I’ll do another one soon! Hope you enjoyed and don’t forget, make up giveaway on my Instagram! @lifeasbeccaa☺️

Advice for teenagers

Happy Thursday, today’s post is about teenagers and our current world, this is me speaking from 100% experience and how I felt in the situations and I hope it helps some of you out!

First thing I want to say is no matter how young / old you are, you have a voice of your own, it’s okay to have a different opinion to everyone else, it’s okay to not want to follow the crowd, it’s okay to be different, it’s okay to stand out.

Having a voice and using it is important, if you don’t want to do something speak up and say it don’t hide in the back and do it because everyone else is doing it!, do what you believe in and if you think it’s wrong say it and leave, don’t get yourself caught up in stuff you don’t wanna be in or isn’t easy to get out of! Always remember it’s your life and you shouldn’t live it to please anyone else but yourself! Also having a different opinion is okay too, don’t ever be afraid to share your opinion not everyone will agree but that’s okay, as long as you know what you are saying and doing!

“Following the crowd” I’ve lived this & seen so many do it, just because your friends do something doesn’t mean you have to!!! If you think it’s wrong and it’s something you know you shouldn’t do then speak up and say there is no way you’ll do it & that’s it no need to explain yourself! And if you think you have to do it to fit in or do it so your friends will like you or whatever then they aren’t really your friends and you are 100% better off without them! I’ve often been asked to do things and it’s all stuff I don’t agree with so of course I stood up and said that!

Being different & standing out is sO important to me, my mam often said to me look at those girls walking around in groups just worrying about school, while you have business ideas, what you wanna do in life & it all planned out. And I loved that because although I’m only 16 I’ve planned out so much and thought about doing such big things, the higher the goal the more I work & fight for it! But while my friends were out getting drunk and smoking whatever in fields ( which I was asked and asked to do with them but I always said no because that isn’t the way I want my life to go ) I was traveling, going to concerts and meeting new people and it truly was amazing! And I also ended up starting a blog because of the discussions I made!☺️

So not following the crowd, standing out and being different made me see what I truly want to do and what makes me happy, and gives me excitement every time I do it!

Now I’m not judging anyone who does drink or smoke I’m just saying EVERYONE in my town does it and Honestly it isn’t the road I wanted to take and I took a different one and ended up here, which I’m happy with! But it was all because I said no and didn’t give into the temptation of others. Also if you are going through a hard time don’t be afraid to text me on twitter my dms are always open!

So,

Be kind

Be happy

Be strong

Be brave

Be respectful

Be different

Be you.

See you Tuesday!

NUDES BY PS ~ Pressed vs Cream Contour Set

I’m back! Happy Tuesday, so a couple weeks ago I purchased a few bits from Primark’s new KKW inspired line called nudes and one of the things I got was a cream contour set which I done a review on already. The cream contour set included a two shade cream contour stick, a two shade highlighter stick, a brow highlighter and a brush/blender which was €8. Now the other day I was in a local Primark and saw the pressed contour palette and thought I’d pick it up, try it out and compare it to the cream contour set! This palette contains one contour shade, two highlight shades and a blush.

3 difference of the two for me;

1. For me I feel like the cream contour sticks blend a hundred times better than the powder.

2. The cream contour always applied way better for me.

3. You get more options in the cream than the pressed.

They are really the only difference I can see. But in my opinion I’ve always loved cream contours and highlighters more than powdered ones!

Cream Contour Set

So like I’ve said before I think it’s good value for €8 because the colours are pretty and you get 3 highlight shades, 2 contour shades and a brush / blender. Also I love how cream contour applies and I think it feels light on the face, also blends better and gives more definition.

Pressed Contour Palette

First of all the contour shade was definitely too dark for me, I’m not a fan of heavy contour or really dark colours, but I love the highlight/blush colours! Although it was only €6 I wouldn’t go out of my way to go buy it, simply because it doesn’t blend well or look good for me!

See you Thursday!,

Cien Products

Welcome back to my blog, happy Tuesday, today ill be talking about 3 different skin care and three different hair care products which I believe can only be purchased in Lidl Stores, not fully sure. Also not sure of how much these are but i’m pretty sure they are all under €5, which is an amazing price for such good products. As you can see the products I have are face masks, moisturizer, micellar water, shampoo, conditioner and heat protection spray. i’m going to start with the skin care products and follow with the hair care products.

 

Micellar Water;

I love it, it contains a lot more natural ingredients than other micellar water’s. It’s a really good cleanser/face wash for a bare face, in my opinion it’s not the best for removing makeup, i feel like it just doesn’t do the job i want it to do with removing my makeup, but as a normal cleanser and face wash i find it amazing and love it, i use it daily and it really has hydrated my skin, make it glow and super soft! I literally never thought i would change cleansers from what i was using because it was so good and helped with my acne so much but then i found this and it’s just as amazing!

Moisturizer;

This moisturizer is very similar to the Nivea soft which is amazing and one I always use, two of the nicest moisturizer’s you can get, its honestly amazing. Use it once and your skin will be unbelievably soft, no joke! I havent decided which I like better yet to be honest, i still use both and they are really good and i’d recommend them both. I think this one is more creamier and rubs in so well, it also dries fairly fast!

Face Mask’s;

One is for my Mam, but i’ve yet to try the face masks, I’ll let you know what it’s like when I do use it! and im pretty sure they were only a couple cent each!

Shampoo & Conditioner;

Probably one of my favourite shampoo’s, end result from using it was amazing. My hair was super soft and had a lovely shin to it same with the conditioner, both amazing products.

Heat Protection Spray;

I don’t use that much heat on my hair only if im going out, I let my hair naturally dry as much as I can but when i do use heat and make sure to spray my hair with this first and it really does protect my hair from the heat, i’ve been using this product for over a year now and find it great!

let me know if you’d like a skin or hair care routine!
