Spiffing Makeup Tutorials (MY VERSION!)

Recently, my friend Lauren and I watched Zoe and Louise's youtube video called 'Spiffing Makeup Tutorials (i.e. Look your worst) Here's the link:

We found it so funny! We honestly couldn't stop laughing at how serious they were, so we decided to have a go, and it was so good, we were laughing for hours!
I advise you to watch their video before you read on, you'll know what I mean!

We didn't record ours; we just took photos of each stage. 

So this is my completely natural as you can see, I'm really surprised I have the courage to upload this actually!

Lauren started to 'slap on' some nice, oily foundation that didn't match my skin tone.

On my lips too...

 She then put a range of different eye shadow colours on my eyes.

The lines on my forehead and eyebrows are apparently eyelashes, to make my eyelashes look really long. She was going for the housewife look, and wanted some tears, and she also put a cross on me to symbolise Christianity.

 She then went a bit mad on the blusher, giving the look I was embarrassed...

And then gave me some really nice juicy big lips with lip liner and lip stick.

Lauren then get confused, and wanted me to have a beard, she also coloured in my dimple, to 'emphasize' it. LOL. She also coloured in my eyebrows and gave me a 'sexual' monobrow.

She wanted to have the hard-working look, and gave me some bags under my eyes. This is the finished result.

Now it's my turn!

 This is my best friend Lauren, all natural - she looks so good without make-up it's unfair. :(

 I mixed some old dream matte mousse with moisturiser and put literally layers on her face, including lips!
 I then wanted to give her the 'sun-kissed' look, and slapped on a load of bronzer, and put an extra load on her cheeks and nose!

 I then started putting some colours on her eye, up to her eyebrow.

I put more eye shadows on her eye, using a big bold goldy-brown colour at the end!

 As you can see, she is really enjoying herself!
 I then put some gold eyeliner at the end of her eyes and top eyeliner, to make her eyes really eye-catching and bright!

I then put some eye shadows on her lower eyelashes, I coloured (well scribbling) in her eyebrows too.

I then gave her the heart lips look, and put a nice browny colour on her top lip and a bright glossy pink on the lower lip. This is the finished result, looking hot my friend!

This is us together; we both look so gorgeous if I say so myself, all the boys will be stopping us on the street with make-up like this. ;)

I hope our make-up has inspired you and you can do this look at home! It is fairly easy if you follow our steps.

This was one of my make-up wipes when taking it all off.. YUMMY!

I would be so happy if someone commented with some pictures of them looking their worst, and all credit goes to Zoe and Louise for giving us the idea to do this!

Hope you're all well!

Salcombe Holiday & R.I.P Blackberry.


So I haven't blogged in like a week or so because I was on holiday from the 11th August - 15th August. It was so fun.
I know everyone isn't too interested in what I did the whole four days, but I don't really care. Tehe.

Me and my three friends stayed at my Nan's house the whole time, we arrived at 13:15 on Thursday. On Friday we went to the beach and I dropped my phone in the sea as we were leaving, and now it's dead. I'm so upset and annoyed with myself. I have had it less than a month!


On Saturday night, we met these really nice lads, good looking too, unfortunately no pictures with them. That night we also went to a beautiful restaurant called Captain Flints. I had Pizza, nom-nom. :-)
On Sunday we was really sad that we had to leave and left at 18:50 and got home at 22:00.

I miss it so much, the weather wasn't very good, but we went to a different beach every day, and there was no arguments, WOO!

Here is some snap shots:
On Thursday, here is my three friends, we were waiting at our train station, feeling pretty excited!

On Friday, you can not really see us because I had to put the camera on self-timer haha! But I'm the one in the white vest, this photo was taken literally a few minutes before I dropped my phone in the sea. :( the beach was gorgeous!

Me and one of my best friends, Lauren. I am the one in the wills hoodie, our hair is a bit wind-swept, it was really windy and not that hot! 

On Friday night, that's me. I look really normal, don't I? :/ I was a tad hyper, we were crab fishing (we caught no crabs in the end) I got a bit over-excited when I was on bucket duty, filling it up with water, haha! We are strange girls.

On Saturday, PLEASE IGNORE MY BEACH TOWEL LOL! We was about to take it on self-timer but this kind woman offered to take it, I'm the one in the green polo.  
This is us, on the last night (Saturday Night!) We're on my Nan's front lawn. I'm the one in the white fringe top. That night was the first night I wore my hair down, I hate it so much. I think I look like one of the men off ABBA. I have to cope with it though so it can grow. 
Quick OOTD:
White Fringe/Hippie Top
£8.00 (I Think!)
My Moms

Oh yes, don't judge me. I had to.. another item in my Jack Wills Collection.

What have you been doing this holiday? How have you broken your phone in the past?

Hope you're all well.

Jack Wills Haul!


So lately, I've started to become a tad obsessed with Jack Wills and today I have just came back from Bicester with my family and friend Paige and bought some stuff from Jack Wills. Not long ago, I was also in Salcombe where I bought a bit of gear too. I didn't know until today but the Jack Wills store in Salcombe is in fact, the first Jack Wills store that opened, and that is where it all started. So if you have any stuff that says Fore St. Salcombe on it, that's the reason behind it. ;)

I've been going to Salcombe for years, and I gotta admit I never heard that there were other Jack Wills stores across UK until about one or two years ago. I feel quite lucky because I'm going back to Salcombe this Thursday with my friends too. :-)

So, here it all is (Yes, these photos were taken on my bed sheet):

Faircroft Shorts
Bought from Salcombe

Kimlersdon Pen
(Available in Black/Pink, Pink/Navy, Navy/Green, Red/Blue, Purple/Yellow)
Ipswich Compact Mirror
(Available in Pink/Navy, Black Flor, Blu Floral)
Both bought from Salcombe

Kilby Tee
£22 (Although on the website it says £34?)
(Available in Red, Navy, White, Pink)
Bought from Bicester

Harewell Polo (It's jade green but my camera is crappy)
£24 (Can't find the price or item on the website, but checked the reciept)
(From what I remember was available in Green, Blue, Pink, Grey)
Bought from Bicester

The Text

So it is found in the Men's section
Everthorpe Classic Fit Hoodie
£52 (Again, can't find the exact on the website)
Unfortunately I don't know the other colours available, sorry!)
Bought in Bicester



The Label on the back

Yeah, I know its random, but we all loved it and it's perfect for the Summer House we have just built.
Oldbury Cushion
(Again, don't know the other colours, sorry!)
Bought from Bicester.

I love all these items so much. The shorts are so comfy and perfect for the beach when I go down to Salcombe, the accessories are... well they looked pretty so I bought them! The T-Shirt is so comfy, the polo is perfect for the summer, the hoodie is so thick and comfortable - perfect for them chilly nights or winter, and the cushion is so squeezable, it kind of moulds into your shape - it's awesome!

I hope my little Jack Wills Haul has helped some of you in some way. I would also like to point out there is a sale on their website ( so click on the link and have a little look round and see if there's anything you fancy, or pop into your nearest store (unfortunately, my nearest store has been looted and smashed into by these bloody riots, completely disagree with them, grr!)

Wish everyone the best and that no one is affected by the riots across England,

Its dull & boring, no.. not English weather!


I'm Jess, and I'm currently 15.
Looking at all these blogs has inspired me to blog, I think it'll be a great past time and hobby and I just hope I get addicted and devoted.

Obviously, I can't be posting every single day I am going into year 11 so I do have upcoming exams, so I might be a bit busy but thats in a few months time. At the moment, I'm putting my feet up and enjoying my summer. :-)

On Thursday I am going to Salcombe in Devon with my three friends, we're staying at my nan's house. I shall be updating my holiday when I'm home as she has no internet in her house. Boohoo. I don't expect anyone to be reading my blog at the moment, it's early days, so to be quite honest I may as well be talking to a brick wall. But hey-ho, I'm not exactly expecting loads of followers over night. but good things come to those who wait, I can be quite impatient though..

This is me currently, I am actually wearing extensions, my hair is short, it was cut like Frankie Sandford's but I am growing it out, a pic will be up soon.
