♥ What i do when i need some 'me' time ♥

As it's just been Christmas and all of my family know how much of a product junkie I am, they all brought me things they know I haven't tried before. A lot of bath bombs, new skin care products and a hell of a lot of nail varnishes.
So as its a Sunday instead of staying in bed all day( this did happen for a majority of today but I was tired) I decided to have some 'me' time and relax with a nice long bubble bath. Here are some things I do when I have my own at home pamper sessions. Hope you enjoy reading this and you can have your own pamper evening.

♥Pamper night starts here♥

1. The first thing is run into the bathroom and turn on your bath, put you're favourite bubble in. Add your own bath bombs/ bath ballistics and wait for your bath to run. One of my favourite bath bombs for a pamper night are fun ones from lush that turn your bath all different colours( I'm a cheap date, easily amused ) 
2. Grab your phone and put your favourite album or songs on and just relax in the bath for as long as you want. Do not let anyone disturb you, its 'me' time for a reason. I have a playlist on my phone called 'bath songs' but I'm normal I promise. Little Mix, One Direction and Union J are my favourites to listen to at the moment. I also like to read my favourite book or my favourite fanfic.

3. After you get out of the bath, now is your chance to use all of those products your family got you. Moisturize like crazy anything to make your skin feel like a baby's bottom, now is your chance. 
5. Put something extremely comfortable on. Over sized tops, jumpers and onsies are perfect.
4. After all that is done, grab your laptop(resist the temptation to just scroll through twitter and tumblr, okay do that for a bit) After you've finished on twitter and tumblr, go onto Netflix, YouTube and just put something to keep you entertained.
6. Now I love painting my nails, every time you see me they will most probably be a different colour to the time before. So this is the time that I choose to do that. Here do what ever interests you. Watch a movie, read, paint your nails, whatever amuses you.
This is one of my basic pamper nights. I also like to do face masks or face treatments
depending on my skin at that time, hair treatments to make my hair super shiny and soft, light some candles make it feel all cosy and grab my favourite movie to watch all snuggled up. Everyone needs nights like these especially after a busy week or a busy day. Let me know what your favourite pamper essentials are? I'm always after some products to try out.
Hope you enjoyed this blog post.

♥ December Favourites/Must haves ♥

So, its been a while since I posted on this blog and I was so excited for my mum to have brought me a new laptop for Christmas so I can continue to build my blog into what I would like it to be.
Firstly I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Santa brought you everything you wanted. I hope you spent some quality time with your family and had a fab time. Christmas is by far my favourite time of the year.
So because it nearly the end of December and nearly the end of Christmas, I thought I'd get back into the swing of things with a December favourites/must haves. December has been such a busy month and I've been shopping ALOT. Whenever I needed to find Christmas presents I'd find something that I liked and needed to pick up, I'm so bad and this is why I need supervision.

♥My Favourites and Must Haves♥

My first December favourite is also in my opinion must haves for winter and they are ugg boots. These are life savers in winter. Here in England it has been freezing every day of December because its winter and I have loved just shoving on my uggs, leggings and a chunky sweater. I think uggs are very casual and very comfy. Now they are quite pricey at £150.00 for the short classics which are what I have. But however this is the second year I've had my uggs and there is no doubt in my mind that they wasn't worth the money. Love them, definitely a favourite.
The winter is definitely a season for long warm baths and lots of pamper sessions because who wants to go out in the freezing cold? Not me. This month I've been at lush a lot and have got some amazing bath bombs that make bath time just that more special. My favourite bath bomb from lush I discovered is the 'So white' bath bomb. Now this bath bomb is the most boring looking but does wonders for your skin and it smells, well I'm not good at describing scents but it smells 'lush.'
My favourite drinks for the winter time is hot chocolate. I'm not meant to have anything chocolate but shh it isn't winter without a few Sundays watching films with a hot chocolate in your hand. I love making my own homemade hot chocolates but any hot chocolate makes me happy. My absolute favourite thing to do is add TONS of whipped cream and marshmallows on top. Mmmmm.
Make up December favourite is a blusher from sleek in rose gold. It is the most subtle pink with the tiniest bit of shimmer. These blushers are so affordable and in my opinion the best place to go for blushers.What I love most about this blusher is that you can build up the colour to be as pigmented as you like. I can see this blusher being a daily make up product in 2014.  
My next favourite is another make up item. The baby lips have been out in the UK a while now and at first I didn't really get on with them, they tend to dry out my lips but after lots of times trying to get along with them I finally fell in love with the 'Cherry Me.' The colour pay off is so good and I can get away with wearing it on my lips for school. AND omg can we talk about how good they smell?! They are very inexpensive and I'm so glad I finally fell in love with them. Next stop is to bring out the Dr Rescue ones that they have in America but not here:( Wish I lived in America.
My last December favourite is a little bit of a cheat but I'm sure you can forgive me. Its a music favourite, well actually an album favourite. Little Mix- Salute. I got this album for Christmas and I'm not really a massive little mix fan, or a mixer as they are called. But this album is literally perfect, I already know every word to every single song. ( I'm listening to it now as I've been writing this blog post shh;)) If you asked me my favourite song from it I wouldn't be able to tell you because its so good.
I hope you all had the best December and I hope 2014 is good to you and its a better year than 2013. Hope you enjoyed finding out a few of my favourites and must haves.

♥I ♡ drugstore make-up TAG ♥

I've been seeing this tag float around YouTube for a while and I've been wanting to do it for ages. Obviously I don't have a YouTube channel to record one for so I'm going to do a blog post on it. Enjoy x 



1) what is your favourite drugstore make up brand?
My favourite is Rimmel. Almost all my foundations and powders are from Rimmel. All round a very good drugstore product. 

2) What is your favourite face, cheek and lip products? 
Face product is the stay matte powder by Rimmel London. Cheek is the sleek blushers or the collection blushes. Lip is the Rimmel apocalips new lipsticks. 

3) Least favourite product? 
The products I don't like is the MUA blushers. I think their not as pigmented as they could be and don't look very good on the skin ( don't shoot me I know many people love them blushers but they are just not for me) 
4)  What is the best make-up bargain? 
The collection concealer is the best in my opinion. I love it and I have re-purchased the product so many times. Such a good product for the price. 

5) What is your favourite underdog product? ( Something you love that often gets overlooked?)
I found a blush from collection a while back and I used it the other day and I love it. It's very pigmented and for the price I think is good. Not many people hype about them but I think they need to be recognised more. ( btw didn't know what this question was asking so I answered the way I thought) 

6) a drugstore product that is overpriced? 
Any revlon foundations. I saw one the other day that was £20 and I think that is way to much for a drugstore product. I don't even really like the revlon products.

7) any drugstore dupes?
I never used these products but my mum found out about these. The mac paint pots are around £18 pound I think? But the best dupe for bare study by mac is the barley branded by maybelline. Maybelline ones are only £4.99 I think? So great dupes.

8) Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype? 
The collection big fake unlimite mascara. Everyone was raving about this because its so cheap but it didn't do anything for my lashes apart from clog up my lashes and it looked horrible. My personal opinion but if you try it and it works for you let me know. I may be doing something wrong haha.

So that is all for this blog post. I hope you enjoyed reading about my favourite drugstore products and my not so favourite products. 
Thank you for reading  x x

♥ Favourites so far this month: August ♥

So to ease me into the whole blogging thing, I shall be speaking about some of my favourites throughout this month. I know we are only half way through the month but I have a variety to talk about all ready.

Beauty Favourites

My first beauty favourite is this foundation I have been loving. It is by Rimmel London and is the Wake me up foundation. This foundation is very dewy and gives you a very nice glow after using it. It has very good coverage and the colour matching it spot on. I don't think i will be changing foundations anytime soon.

My second beauty favourite is my Barry M Gelly nail polishes. Barry m has always been my favourite nail brand, but no brand can beat these Gelly nail polishes. If you take your time these honestly look like you have been to a salon to get them done. My favourite one is in the colour 'Grapefruit, number 324' and is a very pretty pink colour.

My third beauty favourite is a hair product. Now dry shampoo has been a life saver these past months . My favourite one is the Batiste Dry Shampoo. The fruity and cheeky cherry one is my favourite scent. I have gone through bottles and bottles of this stuff and it still remains one of my favourites. It adds volume and eliminates any oil that is on show. All round a very good product for all hair types.

My fourth and my last beauty product is a moisturiser I have been using. I started using this half way through July. At first I didn't like it, but now I'm really enjoying using it and can see a massive difference in my skin. It's by simple and it's the Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturiser. I use this before I put my make up on, just before my primer and it makes my foundation look even more flawless. I can even sometimes miss out the primer step, which is sometimes very necessary when I'm in a rush.

All four beauty products I really recommend, all at very cheap prices aswell and can be found at most drugstores.

Random Favourites

My food favourite is a costa drink. It is the, white chocolate and raspberry creamy cooler. They are so creamy and refreshing and a very good treat to have. Costa is one of my favourite places to go as we don't have a Starbucks near us and that is a favourite of mine as well. I have been recently going to
costa a lot with my mum just for some bonding time, and this drink is what I get nearly every single time.

Another food favourite is my favourite ice creams. I haven't been eating many of these recently because I have been healthy eating for my holiday that's coming up. But when I fancied a treat this is what I'd had. Nobbly Bobblys. There isn't much to say about these ice creams apart from they are the best and my summer go to ice cream.

My music favourite of the month is definitely 'Best Song Ever by One Direction.' It's a very catchy and good song, plus I love the music video. I imagine most of you have listened or watched the music video to this song because it has over 74 million views. That is cray cray.

First Blog Post..

So, I'm Paige Murphy. A 14 year old girl who loves everything beauty. Im new to this, so dont judge me. This blog was inspired by the many blogs I read. Especially my favourites Louise Pentland (sprinkleofglitter) and Zoe Sugg (zoella). I really hope this turns out the way I would like it to. But that all depends on the content on which I provide. I started this blog because I am not confident enough to make YouTube videos, I hope to in the future but everyone's got to start somewhere aye?

I think (not 100% sure) will be writing anything beauty related and lifestyle. Things I have enjoyed this month, things I like. New buys maybe? Anything you guys all suggest. I would like to post regularly but as I'm new to this and their is probably no-one even reading this. I won't have a definite schedule to stick to.

So I hope everyone enjoys this, and it's a blog they enjoy reading and sometimes makes them smile. If I can do that then ill be happy:) I hope this blog improves and gets more readers because I can tell not many people will like this at first. I will improve I promise.

See you next time I post. 
Bye guys x
