My Pandora Bracelet and Charm Collection

Hey Guys! So half term is finally here and I plan on doing nothing apart from sitting infront of the TV everyday and eat my weight in food, perfect! Apart from Halloween night when I actually have plans for a change,haha.

I was very lucky to receive this bracelet from my mum on my 13th birthday which was almost 18 months ago and earlier this year I got my tenth charm for my 14th birthday. My Pandora is very sentimental to me as each one brings back a memory, whether it be a birthday or a charm to represent something I love, every charm is precious. I have never bought myself a charm as for me it would then feel meaningless because it wouldn't represent a memory, also they can be quite pricey! The theme to my bracelet is simply memories and I decided straight away that I would keep it primarily silver.

I apologise for the different backgrounds and lighting but the sun was going in and out, and my camera wasn't focusing aswell on some as it was on others. For some reason I just couldn't get a decent photo of my tenth charm but I will list it along with the others.  

From Left to Right, Top to Bottom
My uncle and his fiance got me this charm for my 13th birthday and it is one of my favourites, it's so sparkly yet simplistic :) You can't really see on the photo but it has some sort of shiny stone in it.
I got this one last Christmas from a close family friend, it's really cute and simple :)
This was my first charm and it was from my mum. I was really into baking back then and that's why she got me this charm. It's really cute and the cherry on top is gold which adds a really nice detail to it.
My Nan got me this last Christmas because I asked for it and it is hands down the cutest charm ever. His little smile just melts my heart!
I got this for my 13th birthday off the same family friend. It's such a lovely charm and although I'm not a fan of most dangling charms, I like this one as only the key dangles.
I asked for this off my mum for my 14th birthday because I think it's really pretty and I love sparkly charms :)
My auntie got me this for my 13th birthday and it's a really cute daisy charm :)
My mum bought me this for my birthday for obvious reasons. My name is Emily,which starts with an E ;)
My Nan got me this for my 13th birthday because the Christmas before I received a 'proper camera' if you like,and I was really interested it photography. Although I'm not as interested now, photography still interests me and my camera comes in handy for photographing things for my blog :)
The last one, my Auntie got me for my birthday and it's a really pretty heart. I'm sorry I couldn't get a decent photo of this one but you can see on the Pandora website what it looks like.

I hope you've enjoyed abit of a different post today. I like posting about make up but I do want to incorporate a few different things aswell so I've got a good variety. I really enjoyed writing this post and I hope you enjoyed reading it and finding out a few things about me that you didn't know :)

I'm excited about my next post which will hopefully give you a few Halloween make up tips!
Bye Guys xo

Autumn Drugstore Make Up Bag

Hey Guys! I hope you're all okay. I know that I've been posting alot less recently and it's because I've been very busy and I think I'm going to continue to be busy for a while so I've been trying to work around everything to create blog posts, but I think I'm going to have a regular schedule of one post a week as anymore would be unrealistic for me and I'd be very stressed!

I've rounded up a few products that I've adored for a while and also some new additions to my make up collection to bring you my ideal 'Autumn Drugstore Make Up Bag'. I've got things that I use all year round and added some things to make it abit more Autumnal. I didn't actually know that 'Autumnal' was a word until a couple of weeks ago but it sounds so posh and I love it :) 

From left to right I have my 'Rimmel Stay Matte' powder which I won't go on about because everyone loves this and that's about it. For concealers I have Rimmel Wake Me Up and Collection Lasting Perfection which is my favourite concealer. The foundation which I have been using for a few months now is 'Bourjois Healthy Mix' foundation in 52 Vanilla. For blush I've chosen a new one I bought a couple of weeks ago, 'NYX Pinched'. This is a dark dusty pink with a shimmer, I'm not really pale but I think a blush darker than this would look abit too much on my skin. Last but not least, if your fed up of hearing about Rimmel Stay Matte I have another powder, this is just the Natural Collection powder in Warm.

First is my 'Maybelline Colour Tattoo' in Metallic Pomegranate which is such a nice red/purple metallic colour and great for Autumn nights. Next is my fave drugstore pallette which is 'MUA Undressed'. The colours are mostly shimmery or sparkly but if you can't glam up your make up in Autumn when can you?!
I have two mascaras. A very popular one which is 'Maybelline the Rocket Volum' and one of my favourite mascaras ever which is 'L'Oreal Lash Architect'. The packaging is very boring but the mascara is amazing and the brush size is good for top and bottom lashes. I seriously recommend you buy this mascara!

I have chosen a lipliner, lipstick and lipgloss. The lipliner is 'Rimmel 1000 Kisses' in Indian Pink. This is a dark matte bold pink and really makes your lips pop which is great for Autumn make up. The lipstick I chose is a new one, 'NYX Matte Lipstick' in Tea Rose. This lipstick is alot more purple than it shows up and lasts quite well. I love love love the colour of this :) Lastly is a 'Rimmel Apocalips' in Celestial. This is a dark pink lip lacquer and when the gloss wears off it leaves a long-lasting stain. You don't need to wear a lip liner under this but it does look nice when you do. The Indian Pink lip liner would look lovely under this!

I hope you've enjoyed having a look at my most used drugstore products at the moment and I hope you all continue to have a fab Autumn :)

Bye Guys xo
