That's A Tune #16

Wednesday, 22 October 2014

This week's song is from the legendary Whitney Houston. I know I've already mentioned her in my music posts before, but how can you not ever mention her. This song was from her last album that she recorded and the song's called 'Call You Tonight'. It's such a chilled out, evening kind of song that's perfect for listening to on these gradually darkening autumn nights. Even though it's not one of her most famous songs ever, it's still one of my favourites of hers and I hope you enjoy it.

I really hope you enjoyed this weeks music post.

Photography- Instagram Photos

Sunday, 19 October 2014

Recently Instagram has really grown on me, probably because my love for photography is constantly growing. I've been thinking of doing some photography blog posts for a while, so I thought I would show you some of my favourite Instagram photos that I've taken so far.

Pretty sunset- no filter.

This was taken back in the summer whilst I was walking- no filter.

Some flowers in the garden.

I was very happy with this purchase so I Instagramed it haha.

This was taken during a walk in the field as the sun was going down- no filter.

I won a little giveaway and got rather excited about it, so I took a photo.

Some flowers my mum was given.

The most adorable book ever! (other than the first one).

This was the bay we departed from when we headed off to Ireland for a few days- no filter.

This room service meal looked sooo good so I had to snap it first. Also I can tell you it tasted amazing.

So that's all for my first photography post. I hope you liked the photos. You can follow me on Instagram if you want to, my username is chantiliz.

Thanks for reading and I will see you soon xxx

That's A Tune #15

Wednesday, 15 October 2014

I can't stop listening to The Script's new song 'Superheroes'. It's a fab inspirational song but yet it sounds really chilled out. This song reminds me more of their older songs and I think that's why I love it more than the songs that they previously released on their third album '#3'. Constantly it's been in my head and I can't stop singing it. I think it's a great single to introduce their new album.

I hope you liked this post and enjoyed the song.

Bag Collection- Large Bags

Sunday, 12 October 2014

Today I decided to continue my bag collection and talk about my larger bags which I use more on a daily basis. This first one here is a monochrome and gold bag with a chain strap which I got from New Look about a year and a half ago I think. When I saw it I thought it looked like a high street version of a Chanel monochrome bag so I picked it up. I remember I got it in the sale and it was reduced from £17 to £7, so it was great value for money. As this bag looks quite sophisticated I think you could dress it up or down as it would look great also worn to a formal evening event, but for me I tend to use it mostly during the day time.

I got this second bag as a Christmas present last year and it's just gorgeous. Sometime last year we went to London and I saw this in Russell and Bromley while my mum was looking for shoes. At the time I was looking for a plain black bag that could look good worn any time throughout the day and because this has a patent finish to it, it adds a glossy touch to it which makes it perfect as an evening and a day bag. It was quite pricey, I can't remember exactly how much it was, but I waited until Christmas to use it and I love it and it gets used loads.

Next we have a bowler bag that I bought from Debenhams two years ago now. It was from Mischa Barton's collection and as you can see it's well loved from the slight discolouration going on. Even though bowler bags are meant for carrying in your hand and arm, I carry this one on my shoulders a lot as it's big enough for your whole arm to fit through. Quality wise it's ok and it's lasted quite well considering it was only 30 something pounds, but I have a feeling I may have to replace it soon as the material is starting to flake off. It's had a good run though so I'm not complaining.

This is my most recent bag that I have and it's from Peacocks. I have actually already done a post about this bag before which you can find here talking about the fact that this bag reminds me of a particular designer bag that you see that has this exact same colour but this ones only £12. I don't think it's around any more, unless it's in a sale, but Peacocks have some other really lovely bags out at the moment. I've even spotted another one I liked, so fingers crossed that one hasn't gone yet.

This last bag is the oldest one I have and this was given to me as a gift probably about six years or so ago now, which tbh you could probably tell as the style of it is very noughties. It's a simple over the shouldder black bag with some metal studs on it. I've forgotten what make it is but I haven't seen the brand around since so I don't think it's around any more. The quality is amazing as it's still going strong to this day and it's still looking good, but I prefer to wear it on the side without the studs because then it's more versatile to wear.

I really hope you enjoyed the last part of my bag collection. I'll link the first one here in case you missed it.

Garnier BB Cream combination to oily skin-review

Friday, 10 October 2014

I found this sample of the Garnier BB Cream for combination and oily skin in a magazine and so I thought that it would be a good idea to give it a try. This BB cream is completely oil free which of course is great for us who normally like to wear a foundation or BB cream which has a matte finish to it as not having any oil in it makes it stay on for longer. As just mentioned the staying power is really good, it literally does not budge from your face which is great. I did powder my skin as it's something I always do, but I think you could get away with not powdering your skin whilst wearing this, especially during this season and in the winter. The coverage is normal for a BB cream as it did cover any little bumps or spots I had, however it didn't completely cover any redness which is a bit of a shame. I found the colour at first to be a bit dark for me, but once it was blended in and had settled for a few minutes I found the colour turned a bit lighter on me. It sort of did the opposite of oxidising which was interesting to see.

What it looks like on the skin.

I did like this BB cream, but I'm not sure that I would buy the full version as I'm just a bit bored of the whole BB and any of the letter happenings in makeup now, but I was just curious to see what it would be like.

I hope you liked this review.

Just a little haul

Tuesday, 7 October 2014

I know it's been a while since I've blogged and that's because I went on a little trip away to Ireland with the family. We went to Waterford and I really enjoyed it there as it's a really cute place and the people are so friendly. Seriously Irish people are so friendly, I wish it was like that in other places. Some of my ancestors were from Ireland so we wanted to go there to see where they lived and to explore the area. Even though it's not the biggest city ever it has a decent variety of independent and chain shops, so we of course went shopping too. I noticed that they had their own version of Primark called Penneys and there were a few things that I needed, so I had a look and found exactly what I needed. First I saw this pink blazer and fell in love with it. It's lightweight, hangs really nicely and it's my favourite baby pink colour, so I had to get it. It only cost 18 Euros which I think is about £15, so it's very affordable too. I also needed a basic small evening bag that wasn't a clutch bag and I found this really pretty but simple bag and it cost only 4 Euros, but I think it looks more expensive than it actually is. I really do adore Waterford and I will definitely go back there in the future to see some things that I might not have seen the first time round.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

That's A Tune #14

Wednesday, 1 October 2014

Now I'm a pretty big fan of Beyonce but even I didn't know that she did her own version of 50 Cent's In Da Club. Yep that's right she pretty much made a female version of the song by changing the lyrics slightly, so it relates more to us girls. Her version totally rocks and I now can't stop listening to it as it's constantly in my head and I already know some of the words to it. I have a feeling a lot of you will love it as well.

I really hope you liked this post and the song.

See you soon xxx
