FOTD - pesky purple lippy

A pretty simple make-up look (my speciality)
Products used :
-Garnier Roll-on Anti-Dark Circles
-Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation (100 Ivory)
-Max Factor Creme Puff (Translucent)
-MUA Blusher (Shade 1)
-Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil (Blonde)
-L'oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes (Extra Black)

The gorgeous pinky-purple shade lipstick I'm wearing is my firm favourite at the moment. Trouble is.. its a no-brand. Y'know when you're like 13 and are bought these massive makeup kits for Christmas/birthdays of no-brand makeup..and usually a whole load of shockingly bad eyeshadows. 
A few months ago, I was digging through my vast collection of these said makeup kits.. and came across a few treasures. This lippy being one of them.

I absolutely adore the colour, it really pops and I love it next to my new platinum blonde hair! Plus its really moisturising and doesn't wear off when drinking/eating.. a massive surprise for a cheap lipstick.
I'm dreading the day when it runs out.. does anyone know of a very similar shade I could stock up on when that day comes?

A Long Weekend with my Bestie ♥

So my best friend Steph, who is studying Medical Science at uni in Nottingham (clever lady) came down to London for a long weekend. We went to see Jake Bugg at the Shepherd's Bush Empire on Thursday - and he was just amazing. He looked so cute and tiny but his voice is just faultless.. I'd be lying if it said I wasn't in love..
Then the rest of the weekend we just did kinda 'touristy' things. I took her to Columbia Road Flower Market which is across the road from where I live. We also explored the vintage and record shops of Brick Lane, spent a sunny afternoon in Covent Garden, had a look around China Town, went to a Souk bar and managed to (somehow) get shisha for free! And finally yesterday we went to Camden for a wander around the markets. It was such a lovely few days, especially as the sun was shining - which always makes things 100 times better.

Hope you had a great weekend. I'm off home tomorrow for a few days to spend some time with my Mam for Mother's Day (on Sunday).

I've got a really good haul post coming up and something else exciting this space ;)
