My Top Eyebrow Products

Ever since  my mum taught me how to shape my eyebrows with tweezers when I was in Secondary School I have always had an obsession for neatly groomed eyebrows. Over the years I have definitely had some issues with my eyebrows, for example over plucking till I had extremely thin lines as eyebrows but I now feel that I have found the right way to groom them.

My current eyebrow routine involves getting my brows threaded approximately every 6-8 weeks and filing them in with either a brow powder or brow pencil. I used get my eyebrows threaded every 2 weeks but because I have naturally thin eyebrows I decided to cut back as I prefer to have them as thick as my eyebrows will allow (and because I am slightly lazy to get them done more regularly). 

 Benefit - Brows a-go-go (dark)
 Sleek - Eyebrow Pencil (191 Brown)
 The Body Shop - Brow Kit (dark/brown black)
 E.L.F - Eyebrow Kit (dark)

Due to the fact that my eyebrows are slightly thinner than I would like I have always filled them in with a eyebrow powder but I have recently started to use an eyebrow pencil which I am happy with the result too. Another essential eyebrow product I haven't taken a picture of is clear mascara which I use to set my brows after filling them in. (I didn't take a pic of it as my clear mascara is no longer clear and it looks like brown gunge *covers face in shame*)

Random's From My Summer

I know it has been a while since I blogged regularly and I apologise but I thought I'd get back into the swing of things by sharing some pics I managed to take on the few hot days we had this summer.

 I love this outfit my friend Marie wore and her maxi skirt from Zara

Brick Lane

These pics are from a great trip to Brick Lane on a hot summers day with Annette & her lovely friend Gigi, where I managed to buy an extremely MASSIVE ring. It was definitely a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Oversized rings are my favourite accessory and I never leave the house without one on but this treasure chest ring I bought took the piss with its size and I was instantly drawn to it. (I must admit I haven't worn it since buying lol)

As you can see my brown Zara shopper bag was a staple of mine this summer despite it nearly breaking off  my right arm with it's weight, I also bought the black version of the bag back in July and I don't why as I really wanted the red colour but they didn't have it.
