I ASKED YOU ... PET PEEVES


Hey guys, 

So today's post is in good fun so don't be offended if you commit any of the following pet peeves. 

I asked on my personal Facebook what people's pet peeves were. To make it easier to relate to I have copied and pasted people's responses but took their names out. 

Hate when phones are on silent & people don't answer..same as you with the eating & when a driver pulls into a yellow box & holds up traffic

I hate when people challenge you to a game of football, lose once & never play you again. At least beat me once b4 you retire, sheeesh

 A lot of the guys I work with always have chewing tobacco in their mouth and I have seen some guys spit it everywhere when they're trying to talk. I HATE chewing tobacco. I think that's the most vile and disgusting habit in the world.

 Talking with mouth full of food, licking their knives, undermining others & talking like they're an authority on a subject when they're not!

  I hate smelly people on a bus! 

 People who use facebook to moan and share all their daily bad news with all n sundry .... share the daily fun / interesting / achievements instead

 I hate when people fall around laughing at their own jokes .

 People talking with food in their mouths and motorists driving in the overtaking lane on dual carriageways and motorways

 Just thought I'd mention to you there's a woman eating everything in her shopping bag on my bus. she had crisps and bread and chocolate and now bag number 2 of crisps and she's licking her fingers. Pig.

 Inconsiderate motorists (lane-jumping, speeding, tailgating etc), British weather (which 99% of the time is horrendous), people in supermarket queues who have trolleys full of food but won't let you check-out before them when you only have a pint of milk & a loaf of bread..

 Lol I hate it when people say apologise but don't actually say the word sorry x

 Biggest pet peeve has to be when people ask me 'so if you're vegetarian how do you get protein?'

So, there you have it.. what are your pet peeves? I hate when people can't reply to a text or tweet etc. It takes all of 30 seconds. I also hate people eating with their mouths open. So gross.

Have a fun day,

TANYA BURR LIPGLOSS THOUGHTS


Hey loves, 

Well some may say I am glutton for punishment but here we are with an other Tanya Burr gloss. 



 Excuse my poor excuse for nail varnish haha. I was on holidays in Cornwall and the effort to re-apply polish was not there. I find the packaging for these to be cheap and boring but I'm sure the tween population love it. 

There's something oddly shite about the packaging as a whole really BUT we are here for the product *repeats over and over*



The applicator is fantastic because it covers a lot of the lip area with a few swipes. It doesn't pick up too little or too much product either. Some people rave about the scent but I find it mildly overpowering and that isn't cool. I think these retail for £5.99 but I got this for £2.99 in TK Maxx in Truro, Cornwall. 


I bought this shade in 'Heart Skipped A Beat' (how sickly sweet) because to me it was going to be a red gloss. At that time I had on my Sephora Cream Lip Stain on and wanted a gloss to go over top sometimes as it is very matte. I was so saddened that the gloss is more pink than red and has a lot of shimmer in it. Having worn it a few times I doubt I'll wear it again as it was rubbish on the lips and was the stickiest gloss ever or should I say gloop.

This is the Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 01. 

Sorry to be a negative nancy but we can't all like the same products and I really am not prepared to say I like a product because a 'famous' (I say that loosely) YouTuber created it.

My previous Tanya Burr video.

Have a great day haha.

TOP 5 LIPPES | COLLAB WITH KATIE MEEHAN


Hey loves, 

Well today is an exciting post. Do you have certain lipsticks you were out to a night time event or clubbing? Here are my Top 5 for those occasions. This is a collab with my lovely friend Katie Meehan.



So if you have an eagle eye then you will notice there are actually 6 lip options. Let me explain. 


I did use two lip liners with these looks. I'll get to those in a moment. 

I am a huge fan of MAC Heroine because it looks so different on everyone. If I pair it with my Rimmel eyeliner in Aubergine it deepens the purple. 

I also use Rimmel's Aubergine as a lip liner with Makeup Revolution's Depraved lipstick to give it a purple-grey look. I love this with a smokey grey look as it is so so different. 

I need to invest in more of the Too Faced Melted lippies as I love this one in Violet. It can be sheered out as a nice purple - pink or amped up to be a gorgeous purple. These last ages on the lips and are so comfy. 

I rocked my MAC Rebel a lot in the Winter and wanted something similiar but not as deep. This Wet N Wild lipstick in Sugar Plum Fairy is just that. Deep and sultry but not too vampy. I love the semi matte finish too. It does stain the lips so it fades nicely. 

Finally, my fave red lip shade. This Sephora Cream Lip Stain is a force to be reckoned with. It's not too cool toned and not too warm, the perfect red for my skin tone. It stays put for hours and never fades with patches and I never EVER get the white ring of doom on the inner lip that some of these matte lip creams can leave. Just amazing. 

Top to bottom: Too Faced, Makeup Revolution, Wet N Wild, Sephora, MAC and Kardashian Beauty mixed with MAC. 


My honourable mention is my fave nude lip mix. MAC Brave with the Kardashian Beauty duo in Au Natural. Just amazingly gorgeous. 

Please check out Katie's lovely blog and give her a follow. She is witty and so honest, I love it. 

What are you fave lippies for events or night time?

OUTFIT POST | SPRING/SUMMER COLLAB WITH TANIA!!


Good Afternoon, 

Now I am not an expert at these 'look book' posts so please bare with me. Time was not on my side this week and I didn't have that handy of an assistant.

This post is in collab with my lovely friend Tania. I will leave more info at the end of the post :D 




My playsuit is from H by Henry Holland which is available in Debenhams. My tassle leather jacket is from Primark and it's about 2 years old. My bag is from Primark too and was a bargain at £5. My sunglasses were bought in Bilbao last Summer. 

I love this outfit for evening/night time in the Spring/Summer and you can really jazz it up with booties or heels. I have flats on that are plain black. 





The tassle jacket makes a return haha. This little jacket is the perfect day/night jacket. When I'm out in the day time I try be as casual as I can. If I need to be somewhere fancy then I can put something else together but to explore the Cornish beaches I will be comfy. 

My skinny jeans are from GAP, they're ankle grazers that I picked up by mistake but they'll do. I try to only buy GAP jeans because they suit my leg shape best but because I'm tall they have great length. I have a long vest underneath my t-shirt that's from New Look and my CARDIFF t-shirt was a random purchase last Summer but I love it. I am huge Cardiff person. 

Again, my sunnies were mentioned above. I adore my little pumps from Primark, so so cute and comfortable. Can you see a theme? I like to be comfortable. I don't tend to like my hair up in a ponytail or anything but the wind on the beach was something else, haha. 

I will post a night time outfit post during the week for the Spring/Summer. Also, check out my day to night Spring/Summer look on my YouTube please.


Check out Tania's info below and give her some love ;)
