What I Watched - March 2017.

Hello lovelies! After seeing Sarah's new blog post, I realised that I had forgotten to put up a post featuring the movies I'd watched in March. So, yeah, even though it's the middle of April, I thought I'd just put it out there anyways as I compiled a list and everything...ha! 

What I Watched in March 2017
Eddie the Eagle - I watched this with Alex & loved it. Taron Egerton was amazing! Bring on KM2.
Me, Earl & the Dying Girl - I've put off watching anything with cancer in it since my Mum died (still not seen TFiOS), but I finally gave in and watched this. I cried my f*cking eyes out.
Edge of Seventeen - I love Hailee Steinfeld and her character in this spoke to me in volumes.
Pitch Perfect 2 - I'm not the biggest PP fan, but the second installment is way better than one, imo.
Beverly Hills Cop - An odd one, but I grew up with these & decided to give it a watch.
Harry Potter - I attended a HP quiz last week & didn't do as good as I thought I would, so I decided to give them all a rewatch. Currently up to DH1.
The Mummy - Another favourite from my teen-hood. It's just a cool movie. The new one can suck it.
Scream 3 - My favourite of the trilogy gets a watch every so often. (3,2,4,1 for any interested)

I admit, that is a weird mish-mash of movies for March, but my mind just jumps to random movies whenever I'm thinking of one to watch, but at least I don't get bored with the same type of film, eh? April's movies are looking a little dismal as I've only watched three so far, but I'm gonna try and watch a couple films tomorrow as I've got nothing planned. So, hopefully I'll remember to get that up and ready for May! (Friggin' May, how is it possible we're almost half way through the year?!!)

What have you been watching this past month? Any recommendations for my April watchlist?

Review - With Honour Eyeshadow Palette.

Hello lovelies! Today's post features a lovely little palette that I've been in love with for a while now. I got it just before Christmas from Home Bargains/TJ Morris for the low-low price of just £2.99. I didn't expect much from it at all, I just loved it's case, aha! Keep reading to find out more about it.

I was drawn to this With Honour palette due to it's rose-gold/copper tin case and the beautiful yet simple engraving on the front. I have been obsessed with things like this for ages and I'm so glad that it's become a trend because I come across pretty things like this now. Usually I steer clear of eyeshadow palettes in shops like Home Bargains because either they're way old or they just don't have any pigmentation to them.

I've never heard of With Honour, I don't know what brand it is and I can't find anything about it online, so I can't really tell you anything about it other than about the product itself, which is quite annoying tbh.

The With Honour palette comes with eight beautiful eyeshadow shades, two of which are matte and the other six have a shimmer to them. The palette also comes with a cute rose-gold applicator with a brush on one end and a pad on the other. It's a nice little addition to the palette,'s useless. I do like it though. The palette also has a full mirror on the lid, which, for a cheap palette, is pretty darn good!

All of the eyeshadows are beautiful (like, seriously) and make really lovely tones when blended together, but they aren't the most pigmented of eyeshadows. The above swatches were made with two layers of each shadow, which I don't think is that bad, it does take a couple applications to build up the colour, but it just means you get to put more makeup on, so all's good, ha! Honestly though, it's mostly the lighter shades that tend to take a few coats to show up, but the darker tones are really nice and pigmented when applied as a smokey eye, which I tend to use them for.

The above is just one of the looks I made with this palette. This is the look I tend to wear everyday, be it with a little bit more of a darker outer corner for a smokey look or a highlighted center for a halo look. The palette has all the colours that I tend to go for, so even though it was cheap and can take a while to build the colour, I love it. I'm glad my love of bargains kicked in that day, ha!
Have you tried this palette? Or more importantly, have you heard of them? Let me know!

What order do you apply your makeup?

Hello lovelies! You know when you're putting your makeup on in the morning? What order do you do it? Do you do primer then foundation or primer then eyeshadow? After watching makeup tutorials on YouTube, I've noticed that people tend to apply their makeup in a different order to me and it made me feel really intrigued, so I thought I'd tell you what order I apply mine in and see how we differ. 
How I apply my makeup & what I currently use:
- Primer. Currently using Technic Primer Spray.
- Foundation. Currently using New Look's No Shine Foundation or Flawless Foundation.
- Eyebrows. Currently using Makeup Gallery's All About The Brow Kit.
- Eyeshadow. Currently using With Honour Eyeshadow Palette.
- Eyeliner. Currently using Collection's Extreme Felt Tip Liner.
- Bronzer/Contour. Currently using Makeup Revolution Ultra Bronze Powder.
- Setting Powder. Currently using Rimmel Stay Matte Finishing Powder.
- Highlighter. Currently using Makeup Gallery's 'Frost Shimmer' Eyeshadow.
- Mascara. Currently using Technic Megalash Mascara.
- Lips. Currently using Makeup Gallery's Latte Matte Lip Cream.

I always thought people applied makeup in the same order as me, I don't know why, it's silly when I think about it now, so let me know what order you apply yours! Admit it, it's interesting, no??
