Paperself || Lashes and Tattoos
So festival season is upon us and Paperself have got the perfect accessories to make sure you stand out from the crowd and look amazing! I have to admit this was one of the cutest packages I have ever seen, just look at those lashes.

I'll start with the stand out product; the paper lashes! They are the most beautiful and intricate false eyelashes I have ever seen; these are the Peacock design*. They are cut to fit but they come with instructions if you need to make them a little shorter. Similarly to regular lashes you just apply the glue (I use Duo eyelash glue) to the band and then with tweezers apply them to your lash line. I like to wait around 30 seconds until the glue goes slightly tacky and then apply them, it makes the last longer and is so much easier to apply this way. With them being paper I would advise you are really careful if you're hoping to wear them more than once, especially if there is alcohol involved whilst you're wearing them! Paperself have tonnes of different styles, the London Skyline and the Merry-Go-Round edition are truly amazing! They are £12.50 per pack which I think is a good price considering how impressive they look - they're definitely a talking point.

Alongside the lashes, I was also kindly sent some temporary tattoos - very Coachella. I was sent 2 packs, one with very simple designs and colours and one more floral and colourful pack. Personally, the simple black and gold arrow style tattoos (£7)* are more wearable - these would make perfect additions to a festival outfit but the floral style would look amazing teamed with a plain black maxi. Also, the pink vine like tattoo (£7)* would look stunning down the spine of a backless top/dress! Again, like the lashes, there are so many beautiful designs on the website; definitely something for everyone. These are easily applied; position them correctly on the skin then simply wet the backing with a flannel for around 30 seconds to 1 minute and they will transfer! They last around 2-4 days which is the perfect time for a festival or the Bank Holiday weekend.

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover || Book Review

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover Book Review

Well this is something different for me - a book review! I've been a big reader since forever but I struggle finding the time to actually finish a book with all the marking and planning I have to do! During the half term break I actually managed to read 3 books and I fell back in love with reading. I thought I'd combine my 2 loves; blogging and reading and add a few book reviews to my predominantly beauty based blog!
My first review is going to be Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover which was actually a recommendation from blogger FayesFix. We have very similar reading tastes so when this book was in her favourites I instantly bought it. Sydney and Ridge are the two main characters and I was quickly sucked in to their personalities. Instantly my heart ached for Sydney as she discovers some horrible but relatable news quite early on and then we meet Ridge and all seems well - obviously this isn't a quick and easy fairy tale.

I got so engrossed in their story that I actually stayed up until 1:30am to finish it - I could not put this down. I needed to know the ending and even throughout the book I wasn't 100% convinced that I knew how it would end. I like a book that keeps the reader guessing, it definitely has that can't put down quality to it. Another element that I loved about this book is that it has an accompanying soundtrack - cool right! Ridge and Sydney are drawn to each other through music and there are a number of songs that are shown during the book. Each song is actually sang by Griffen Peterson and my god they are amazing! I listened to the album after reading the book but I can see how it would make a reader definitely more involved by listening along with the book.
After reading Maybe Someday I hopped on over to the Kindle Store to see which other delights I could find by Colleen and she'd actually written a short story featuring Warren - a room mate of Rdige's called Maybe Not. Equally as funny if not slightly ruder but still worth a read to find out more about his story and past.
