I've got high hopes

Hi lovelies,
Happy Easter to you all!
Whilst Facebook tells me people are using today as a (very good) reason to go out drinking or enjoy a family meal, I've been working on something that I'm getting very excited about. Music has been my companion throughout today, so I wanted to share some songs that have been on repeat this week!

Kodaline- High Hopes

Biffy Clyro- Machines

City and Colour- Of Space and Time

Evanescence- Disappear

Paramore- Still Into You

Clubroot- Lucid Dream

Enjoy! :)
If you've posted any playlists recently, send 'em my way! I love listening to new music :)

Highstreet Haul

Hi lovelies!

I'm back with a fashion/beauty related post, after my past few seem to have strayed a little bit! I just enjoy using this space for a bit of anything and everything, I hope that's okay with you guys.
I've made a quick trip to Primark and Superdrug over the past couple of days, and I thought I'd share it with you as I managed to buy enough to keep me satisfied without breaking the bank.

As you can see, i'm still getting over excited with the prospect of summer but I did try to be a bit sensible about it. 
I love the new platform Converse style shoes, over the past few months I've been in the habit of wearing something with a bit of a heel to make my short-ness less obvious to the world, but (hopefully) it'll start being too hot for boots, so these are nice little replacement.

 I really love the new black and white top that I think would go nicely with pair of black skinny jeans and the shoes, it's quite a baggy top but I'm guessing that's the style, I'll probably add a brown rope waist belt to it though. 

Platform Pumps- £8
Aztec Top- £8

On the even more summery side of things, I grabbed a pair of white espadrilles and this white crop top with fringe detail (perfect for still keeping your midriff covered but not overheating in the sun.) I've ordered a pair of boho baggy trousers that I think would go perfectly with these, I just need the sunshine to arrive for me to test this theory out! 

Crop Top- £6
Espadrilles- £4 

To add to the summer kick, I popped into Superdrug to pick up a few items (one of which I featured on my last wishlist

Sleek Blusher- Life's a Peach - £4.49
Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter- Tutti Frutti - £7.99
Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine- Lychee - £3.99
MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter - £2

I've been using all three of these items for the past few days, it seems I have become addicted to orange and corals; I never would have expected this of me but snow in March does weird things to a person! 

I'm pretty sure this is the first haul post i've done, so what do we think? There won't be frequent posts like this as I'm trying to be sensible with my money these days, but I like seeing that I managed to buy a few things and not having to feel guilty about it! 
I decided to jazz up the photos a little bit, and hopefully they're a bit more visually pleasing!

I went on a bit of a vlog spree before I left the house this morning, hence the double post :)

Hi Guys!
Just a quick video's probably of no interest to anybody but I felt like I should share the news with you guys anyway :)

Hi guys!

Oops it looks like I published this before I'd finished it, I was in a mad rush to leave the house this morning- my bad! 
As you may be able to tell, I've changed my hair colour (yet again) to a red/ginger colour (it's lighter on the length of my hair, very 'multi-tonal,') and with that comes a new inspiration for make up. As I said in my last wishlist post, I'm really loving the coral look and I think this is because it just looks so fresh so I'm trying to bring that into my every day look, hopefully it's working! 

I've kept the eye make up quite simple, and just blended the two 'Colour Tattoo' products across my lid, starting with the lighter Eternal Gold in the corner and blending outwards into On and On Bronze, I've then applied a bit of liquid liner along the lash line and added a small wing. It's still enough to add a bit of edge to the overall look, as for the rest of my make up I've kept it simple and refreshing looking.

I've purchased a couple of new products today, I just had to feed the Coral love, so I'm excited to incorporate these in to my daily looks. (And to review them- expect a couple of reviews in the near future!)

Make up Wish List

Hi lovelies, 

I'm back, finally, with a beauty related post! I feel like all I ever do is apologise for my sporadic posting, I have a lot going on at the moment so my attention is being sucked up by other matters; that sounds slightly ominous and I'll share a bit more about this in the near future. For now, I just wanted to share the beauty items I've been lusting over. 

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation-
Usually I prefer foundations with a high coverage, but I want to get into the habit of wearing a lighter foundation and using concealer to cover blemishes. I just feel that this might help improve my skin, and to be honest, I'm not a really a fan of the heavy foundation look anyway. 

Revlon Colorburst lip butter in 'Tutti Frutti'
The world outside of my bedroom may be covered in snow right now, but my head has thrown itself into spring/summer and I'm all for trying out the coral look. This lip butter seems to be quite sheer, so for someone who is usually a red, purple or pink lipstick fan, going for coral in this form doesn't feel quite so intimidating.  

Sleek MakeUp Ultra Mattes Palettes Bright-
I'm not sure what's happening to me, but I'm seriously drawn to these vibrant colours and if my 'au naturel' palette is anything to go by, Sleek eyeshadows are so good! I really want to experiment with these eyeshadows, and I think my attraction to these colours is a sign that my body is so ready for summer. 

Magnifibres Brush-on False Lashes-
I've heard such great things about this, and I seem to have become a little bit obsessed with eyelashes. I just think that nice eyelashes can add that nice polished finish to a look- so if this helps me achieve that, then I'm a fan. 

Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 
This combines two products that I really want to try, just because the brand is talked about a lot, as is the idea of using a muslin cloth for skin care. I'm yet to try any Liz Earle products, but it's definitely on the to-do list. (And if it helps my skin-hoozarr!) 

Cream Pigment in Hollow 
I've only tried one Illamasqua product before, and I wasn't that impressed. However, i'm willing to let that slide for this product! I believe it's meant to be used as an eye shadow, but I think it would be a nice to use for some subtle contouring! 

Too Faced Brow Envy-
I recently purchased the Urban Decay Brow Palette, and I really do like it, but there's something about this that makes me want it. It's on my to buy list...when I need it, and when I can bare to part with the money. 

Clarins Satin Finish Lipstick in Rouge Eclat-
I know, I know- do I really need anymore red lipsticks? When it comes to this, yes, yes I do. I say no more. 

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream-
I first bought this in Macy's (New York) back in June 2011, and I felt a little bit sick after parting with so much money (as I also bought a Bobbi Brown foundation and concealer at the same time) but after discovering how long this lasted for, and how much I loved it and now miss it, I really don't feel guilty. It was a good life choice. Or so I keep telling myself. (I wouldn't say no to the foundation and concealer again either!) 

Are there are any beauty products that have really caught your eye recently? I thought my compulsion to buy beauty products was finally slowing down, but I think this list sort of proves other wise!

I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive

Hi Guys!

My insomnia is at it's craziest right now, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to edit my latest vlog!
Yesterday (technically, I suppose) I went to see City and Colour & Biffy Clyro; I was very excited about this so I thought I'd take advantage of my own good mood and film the evening.
This is the first time i've done a vlog like this, so please let me know if it's something you enjoyed and would like to see more of! On a selfish level, it's great to look back at memories in this kind of way, but I don't want to post these sorts of things if it just results in boredom.

If you've read this blog for a while, you'll know I'm somewhat of A MASSIVE FAN OF CITY AND COLOUR, this was my 4th time seeing him (and the first time seeing him support- the only downside) and he still mesmerises me. I tend to get very vocal at gigs, and there was a moment where I shouted (rather loudly) to Dallas, and he nodded in my direction. Which, fan girl moment, a tiny acknowledgment has made me very happy!
I've developed a new fondness for Biffy Clyro too, I listened to them a bit anyway but now I've seen them live, the records just don't compare and songs I looked over previously, I now really love.
You'll be pleased to see, I didn't record any of our insane dancing. We're just embarrassing, honestly...
I'll let the video do the rest of the talking :) (My sleep deprivation is starting to hit me and I could have sworn I was sat facing the other way in my bed, bit disorientating to find out I'm not sat where I thought I was.)

Playing on my iPod:

This is one of those moments where I'm kicking myself for not paying much attention to this song before.

Hi Lovelies!

Just a quick post to share my bloglovin' with you all! (There's no point in me explaining the whole bye-bye google reader thing with you, I'm sure everyone has seen by now haha!)
I'm quite lucky in that I never used google reader, so there's no chance in me missing it, but as GFC isn't safe anymore it can't hurt to get the bloglovin' links out there.
I've imported all of the blogs I follow onto bloglovin', so hopefully I should be following you all! I find I'm far more likely to read blogs via bloglovin' so maybe this is a good thing...who knows!

Follow on Bloglovin

Feel free to leave me your links too, just in case I may have missed you! 
And just to remind you, I have a blog sale going on at the moment so please do check it out!

I'm really so happy, I really love everything about it. It's currently on my facebook too and I've had so many compliments (and also messages asking me if she draws other people, hopefully sending some commissions your way Hannah!) 

I've also featured in a couple of her recent posts: here & here :)

Thank you so much Hannah!! <3

As a side note, in case you missed it, I've posted my first blog sale so I'd really appreciate it if you could check it out and spread the word. Saving funds for both survival and also a much needed escape from the UK haha! 
I'm planning on filming a couple of videos tomorrow, so keep an eye out for those :)

Blog Sale!

 Hi Lovelies!
It's that time of year where exams are on my radar, so naturally, all I can focus on is the prospect of escaping on a couple of (short holidays.) I'm imposing a spending ban on myself, and I've had a sort through some of my stuff and figured it's about time I stop hoarding the stuff I never wear and see if I can find a better home for it.
And with that I announce: AGP's First Blog Sale!
(If I announce it, it makes it more grand, right?)

I'll place it all under a 'read more' cut as there's a lot and I don't want to it to take up toooo much space, especially if you're not interested in any of it!

Hayley Williams & MAC have announced their collaboration, and as a Paramore fan and a make-up fan, this has made me very excited!! I'm usually not a lover of orange, but as every Paramore fan would know, it's the Hayley Williams signature look. 
I love the look of the mineralized blush, and it's actually made me very intrigued about the idea of orange as a lip colour; it's really not something I'd ever considered.
I just wish there were a few more products I could choose from.

The products are online being launched online, but I hope they're available to the UK...and who knows, I may succumb to temptation! 

Will any of you guys be trying these products out?
