First of all before I launch into my major excitement about my first race! Just a quick apology...I wanted to update my blog more regularly than I have been, but since I've been back at school with my blog for the first time I have found it hard to update when I want to. BUT do not fear Sarah is here to save the day... or in other words make a plan so I can fit it in with the joy that are exams hahaa. Anyway apology over with (I hope you forgive me :P) onto the HR4.5!
So last Wednesday (17/04/2013) I took part in our college's FUN RUN called the HR4.5 (very imaginatively named as our college is called Hills Road and it's 4.5K hahaa). Usually I'm not much of a runner in fact I always seem to be trying to get out of running but I thought it was time to experience a charity run :) I didn't do much training just a run here and there over Easter so I at least felt a little fitter hehee but I knew I definitely wouldn't be running the whole thing with the little time I had after I signed up.

So recently I discovered a lovely dress brand called Chi Chi London (You can check out their website here http://bit.ly/ZQGeDd ). They sell a range of luxury dresses that are perfect for any event and season at very reasonable prices so you are bound to fall in love with at least one...or a lot more in my case! When I found out etailPR had a competition to win £200 worth of vouchers to spend on my long wish list of dresses I got a little...VERY excited! (YOU can enter too all the details can be found here http://bit.ly/13cDE2d)
I have chosen a dress from each of the sections on the website so I hope you enjoy looking through my wish list and I would love to see yours! (Tweet me your wish list!)
Bandage Dress - Jacinta Dress £119.99 (http://bit.ly/10bYbU2)
The first section on the website is the Bandage Dresses which are not the sort of dresses I would usually go for but I really like the design on this dress. I love the sweeping pattern which makes it such a statement piece for any wardrobe. I also love the monochrome colour scheme and think it would look so cute with a pair of black heels for all those summer parties!

I have always had trouble applying eyeliner because I always seem to end up with a wonky line or its too thick and it just never seemed to work for me. When I spoke to a couple of people about this gel eyeliner kept coming up but I just never got round to purchasing any. A few days ago I came across this brand called B. which I think is exclusive to Superdrug and ohmygoshhh I have finally been saved from my eyeliner dilemma I LOVE this product! The branding of the products is very nice with the simple 'B.' logo and a smart black box, which instantly made me hope their products would be just as good quality. I purchased their B. Precise Gel Eyeliner in Chocolate (they also do black but I prefer brown eyeliners as they are more natural against by dark blonde hair) and it was £4.99 on offer (usually £6.99) which is such a good deal as it works so well.

Hi There :)
For my second post I though I would start a series where I list my 5 favourites of something. It could be anything from socks to beaches! Sooo here it is the first '5FAV' post! I thought I would start with nail varnishes as I have so many that I love but there are a few that stand out for me! This '5FAV' will be updated throughout the year but at the moment these are my favourites.

Welcome to my first beauty blog post (how exciting!). For my first post I thought I would let you have a little peek inside my makeup bag as it is a key part of beauty routine. I took these photos in the summer so my makeup bag has changed a little but I still love all these products. I like to mix up my routine when I find new products I love or get bored of the old ones. I hope you enjoy :)
