Disneyland Paris Look #1 | OOTD

September 27, 2017 0 Comments

 While in Disneyland Paris, I wanted to share a few of my outfits, so I made my mum play photographer for a couple of days. Here is some information and photos to show off one of the outfits I wore at Disneyland Paris!




I very rarely play with monochrome, but I absolutely loved wearing this outfit! It was comfortable and practical, but I still felt stylish and put together. I also found that the skirt didn't get dirty, and I really expected that it would. My top is from New Look, and while I couldn't find the exact one, there is something similar [HERE].


My broderie lace skirt is from Boden. I got it 15% off on sale, and I love it to pieces! I also got the same skirt in red. I love the details of the fabric, such as its scalloped hem and pretty patterns. It really wasn't hard to keep clean, so if the fear of dirt is putting you off having a white skirt, I say put that fear aside! If you'd like to order this skirt, you can find it [HERE].


My beautiful Chip and Dale flats are from Irregular Choice. My favourite thing about them is all the details you see when you look closer. The soles have Chip and Dale on them as well, and there are acorns embroidered on the heels. I also love the gold piping, red scallop trim, and the beautiful glittery insoles! They're absolutely beautiful, and if you fancy a pair you can get them [HERE].



My necklace is a floating locket from Pandora that my mum got me for my birthday last year. You can get other little charms to put inside it, which I think is a great source of customisation! You can get the floating locket [HERE] and have a look at some charms for it [HERE].


All of the earrings I wear at the moment come from Warren James, because they're high quality at a low price. I've been struggling with earrings recently (I think I may be allergic to some lower end ones) but I can rely on these to be comfortable as well as beautiful! You can order the pearl drop earrings [HERE], or the set of three that the smaller ones came from [HERE].



My Pandora bracelet is one of my absolute favourite accessories. I have several beads, which I interchange as I please. I bought the frog prince one from Disneyworld in Florida, but it can be ordered [HERE]. The decorative one I think I bought in York, and it can be ordered [HERE]. I love this owl one, because it reminds me of my grandma. Her favourite animals were owls, she was a teacher (it's wearing a little graduation cap), and her favourite colour was blue, like its eyes. It can be ordered [HERE]. And the turtle one I bought for just £10 in a sale! You can order it [HERE].


Finally, the crowning glory, my Marie ears. Marie is one of my favourite Disney characters, so it wasn't a hard decision to order these from an Etsy shop called Hannah Marie Magic. Her Minnie Ear Headbands are all handmade from scratch, which I really admire, and I got plenty of compliments on mine! You can order them [HERE] or scroll through her other designs [HERE].

Let me know what you think of this Outfit of the Day and its post! There's another outfit coming soon, so be sure to follow Whoops It's Hannah on Bloglovin' to see that one as soon as it is posted!

Realistic, Quick and Easy Back to School/College Makeup Look

September 20, 2017 1 Comments

If you're hoping to find a look that will suit your needs when you go back to school or college this September, you're in the right place. Not every school permits makeup but if you want to wear it, I have a very natural look that's practically undetectable. I actually timed myself doing this, and it took no longer than 6 minutes, which is ideal for those of you who like a lie-in!

1. Use a little bit of colour corrector. I use yellow to cancel out purple undereyes, green to cancel out redness (this also works over things like spots), and a little bit of lilac where my skin looks dull and yellow. You can also use peach/orange if your undereyes are more blue than purple. I think this colour correcting kit from Barry M is excellent.

2. Apply a bit of concealer and blend it with a damp beauty sponge. I like the Real Techniques one, or this one from Boots. If you'd like a high coverage concealer, try this one from Collection, or for something a little bit lighter, this one from Seventeen is a good one as well. I use concealer on my undereyes and on any blemishes. If you want to use foundation, apply it before your concealer, but if you'd rather not wear foundation then concealer on its own looks just fine!

3. Set your concealer (and foundation if you're wearing it) with a translucent powder. This one from Collection is great.

4. Apply a little bit of blush for a healthy bit of colour. I used one from No7 here, but Makeup Revolution have a lovely collection of blushes. Try to use a matte blush, as shimmer would be a bit obvious and could get you in trouble if you aren't allowed to wear makeup.

5. Fill in your eyebrows with a brow powder. I normally use a brow pomade, but I think it's better to be a bit more subtle in school in case your school is strict about makeup! I use this one from Freedom in the shade dark brown.

6. Apply a little bit of mascara. Avoid volumising mascara, as these can be clumpy, which is such a giveaway when you aren't allowed makeup in school. Instead, try a lengthening mascara like this one from Barry M.

7. If you'd like, apply a little bit of a nude lipstick. Of course if you think you'd get in trouble for this then skip this step, but I think it's the perfect finishing touch! I used this one from Makeup Revolution.

And there you have it. This is a subtle, natural look, which is perfect for those of you whose school isn't too lenient about wearing makeup. It's also really quick to do so you don't have to get up extremely early in the morning. If you'd prefer something a little bit more, look out for the next tutorial in this series!

Stationery Haul | Kikki K, Paperchase, Disney, and more!

September 13, 2017 1 Comments

This time of year I see a lot of people doing stationery hauls on their blogs and YouTube channels, and while I love to watch and read them, I've never really thought about doing my own just for the sake of it. However, I've recently bought a lot of stationery bits and bobs, and I thought a few of you might like a little look at what I've got!




WHSmiths Cat Folder
Even on a practical course like mine (I do Musical Theatre for those who don't know), there's a lot of writing involved, so it's always nice to have a folder to keep all your written work in. I love the design of this one, and I also love that its spine is rounded - it makes it much more comfortable to hold as you go between classrooms than the flat ones with harsh edges and corners. WHSmiths also have a good deal on packs of 50 plastic files, so it might be worth getting your folders and inserts there!





Stress Relief Colouring Book | Disney's Le Nouveau Bestiare Extraordinaire
I love adult colouring, and I love Disney, so when I spotted this lovely colouring book while at Disneyland in August, I had to take it with me! It's got all sorts of detailed designs, featuring Disney characters like Dumbo, Bolt, Ariel, Figaro, Pluto, and more! I'm sure that I'll really enjoy colouring in these beautiful drawings.




Paperchase Lined Notebook
I always like to have a new notebook for my next academic year, and I love this one from Paperchase. The geometric print is very distinctive, and I love the metallic touches. Of course you can just have a bog standard book of lined paper, but I quite like to have something a little bit more quirky and different. It also makes me happier to open it up and do my work when I've got a beautiful notebook!




La Dame a l'Icorne Blank Notebook
When in Paris, I went to see the beautiful tapestry of the Lady and the Unicorn. The tapestries were extraordinary and detailed, and I had to get plenty of souvenirs to keep it in my mind! I particularly like this blank notebook because it has little sections, separated by images from the tapestries. It means I can separate subjects easily, and enjoy even more details from the tapestries that I loved.



Chat Noir Lined Notebook
I love this poster of a black cat by Theophile Alexandre Steinlen and saw it in a lot places while I was in Paris. It really appeals to me as a crazy cat lady and lover of warm colours, so I decided to get this little notebook while at the Louvre art gallery. I think I might use it for making a note of things I need to remember at college, be it assignments or important dates.



Paperchase Stickers
Using stickers to brighten up a page of my bullet journal is something I love to do, so I went slightly mad in Paperchase. I got four sets of stickers:
- Smiley cacti stickers, wearing glasses, moustaches and more. I'm not obsessed with the cactus trend, but I do love this set of stickers.
- Little blobby monsters with googly eyes. I don't really know what they are, but I thought they were cute, so hey ho.
- Cute cats. I love the details on these stickers where all the cats are wearing little outfits or are adorned with flowers and things. They're beautiful!
- Watermelons! I love a good watermelon, and I love them even more with googly eyes.
These stickers will make the pages of my bullet journal really come to life, and I'm excited to start using them!



Kikki K Stickers
That's right, more stickers! These gorgeous stickers from Kikki K come in a two-pack, and were too adorable to pass. They have cats and dogs, bears, squirrels, butterflies, and all sorts! I think they're so cute and I love the sketchy design of them. These will also make a fantastic addition to my bullet journal!



Marie Pen
Marie is one of my favourite Disney characters, and I had to get this pen while wearing my Marie ears at Disneyland Paris! The design is really special, and I love the detail of the bejewelled bow in her hair!



Chip and Dale Pencil
I love to meet and greet Chip and Dale on Disney trips; they're so fun loving and playful that it's always a special experience! This pencil caught my eye as I thought it really captured their rambunctious nature and I just couldn't leave it in the shop!



La Dame a l'Icorne Bookmark
Another souvenir from The Lady and the Unicorn was this bookmark. I'm the sort of person who folds the corner of the page to mark my page (book lovers probably needed a trigger warning there), and I've been told off that many times for it that I thought it was time to get myself a bookmark to get everyone off my back! Now whenever I go to read a chapter or two I can remember that extraordinary tapestry!



Kikki K Cat Pencil Case
I'm sure that by now you all know that I am a cat person, so I just couldn't leave this cat pencil case in the store. I do wish it was slightly bigger, but I did manage to find room for everything I wanted. It's very nicely made, with solid seams and neatly embroidered facial details. Hopefully this will serve me well next year at college!



Kikki K Cat Badge
The pun on this badge was too sweet to pass up, and I think it looks lovely on my pencil case. It says 'I'm Feline Fine' on it, which I think is funny and cute, and the little face of the cat is just adorable. It is the purrrrrrrfect accessory!



Paperchase Holepunch
The notepad that I got from Paperchase doesn't actually have holes for putting the pages into files, so I thought a little holepunch that's easy to carry around like this one would be useful. The rabbit design is so quirky and sweet!



Paperchase Stapler
I often think I need a stapler - usually when there's not one in sight - so when I saw this sweet little ladybird stapler in Paperchase I thought it would be ideal! It's small enough to fit easily in my pencil case, and I love the ladybird design.



WHSmith's Lanyard
In college, I have to wear a lanyard with my ID badge on it, but to be honest I just wanted something a little bit more unique than the bog standard college ones! So I spotted this in the same range as my folder and decided just to pop my ID and bus pass on this.



Kikki K Ballpoint Pens
These pens have cute designs of cats and dogs, sewing supplies, and polka dots; i.e. EVERYTHING I LOVE! They write really smoothly and are really lovely to use as well. They're also black ink, which is what I need in life. I'm not a blue ink gal.



Kikki K Coloured Pens
I can't decide whether these pens are fineliners or what, but I thought these would be great to use in both my bullet journal and college work to add a bit of colour and fine details. They fit nice and snugly in my pencil case, and I think the colours are ideal!



Helix Foldable Rulers
It's always nice to use a ruler to underline your titles and things with, and I love this foldable one because it's so convenient - long, 30cm rulers are better in my opinion than the 15cm ones, but they're not always easy to fit in your pencil case. This can be made nice and compact to fit easily.



Paperchase Bear Highlighters
On a musical theatre course, I often need to highlight scripts and lyrics, and why not make that more fun with some lovely little bear friends?! This set of five contains orange, pink, blue, green, and yellow highlighters, each with individual bear designs. They were just too cute for me to pass up!



Paperchase Macaroon Rubber
I love macaroons, and I often need to rub out mistakes or construction lines in my drawings and typography designs! This cute little rubber was calling my name, and I just had to pick it up.



Kikki K Cat Paperclips
I sometimes find when I'm handing in college work that a paperclip would quite often be handy. I thought it might be useful to have some paperclips in the bottom of my pencil case for moments like that, and these ones in Kikki K caught my eye. They look like little cats! How could I resist?

So that's all of the stationery that I've bought recently. As you can see, it's a lot, but stationery is the sort of thing that we all use a lot of, so I'm sure nothing will go to waste. I have a bullet journal, and I'm still in full time education, so I'm always needing bits like this! What was your favourite bit of stationery from my haul?

The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil Review

September 06, 2017 2 Comments

The Body Shop's Oils of Life range uses a blend of Black Cumin Seed Oil, Camellia Seed Oil, and Rosehip Seed Oil to revitalise your skin. The range is supposed to replenish moisture, repair damage, and make dull skin more radiant.

Here's a little bit of information on the benefits the Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil's main ingredients have for your skin:
- Black Cumin Seed Oil provides vitamins A, B, and C, providing your skin with nutrients it needs to be healthy. It is also used to manage excess oil and clogged pores.
- Camellia Oil provides nutrients which help rebuild skin cells, repairing damage from dryness, sun exposure and aging.
- Rosehip Oil is full of vitamins and fatty acids which correct dark spots and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.



This facial oil is certainly not inexpensive. For 30ml, it costs £30, and for 50ml, it costs £38. In my opinion, getting the 50ml one is a no brainer, but that amount of money is still a lot to spend on skincare, so I wanted to see if it worked.

The packaging is lovely. It's made from sturdy glass and tinted with an orange gradient. The dropper is incredibly easy to use, and a few drops is the perfect amount to do my entire face. Like the Bouncy Sleeping Mask, a little bit goes a long way. 

In my opinion, the smell is beautiful. The thing I smell most is the cumin, and it kind of reminds me of naan bread! As well as this, it has a slight floral note to it. Overall, the scent is a floral blend of aromatic spices, and it really is lovely. I find that the smell lingers on my skin throughout the day, which I love.



The oil soaks in very quickly, so I don't feel greasy or appear shiny at all. I feel the effects of it all day. It feels very hydrating, and it makes my dry patches look and feel less flaky and my skin feels less tight.

After two weeks, I definitely notice and improvement in my skin. I have quite dry skin, and that means that in patches I get flaky skin that feels rough to touch. I've typically found this around my eyebrows and forehead, although sometimes on my cheeks as well. Since using this, I've noticed a huge decrease in the dry texture of my skin. My flaky and rough patches are no more. I definitely would say that the hydrating effect of this has seriously improved the condition of my skin.

I don't think I had particularly dull skin before I started using this, but I would say that I definitely have a more even looking skin tone. My cheeks were naturally very red, and I would say that they are less rosy now. I also think I look a bit less fatigued, but I don't know whether that's fully connected to the oil or if I've just been getting more sleep!



Overall, I have really enjoyed using this facial oil and I will continue to use it in the future. It is expensive, but a little bit goes a long way so it lasts a long time, and I really appreciated the results it had. If you have dry or normal skin, I'd recommend trying this out, but I suspect that oily or combination skin types may not need this level of hydration. That said, I mentioned above that black cumin is useful for managing oil, so it might be worth a try if you can get your hands on a tester!

August Favourites

September 02, 2017 0 Comments
Another month has been and gone, and now it's time to welcome September into our midst. There were plenty of things I loved throughout the month of August, so of course I had to write an August Favourites post!

1. Salem
I have been binge-watching this show on Netflix all month. It's very dark, violent, and gory, so it certainly isn't for everyone, but I've really enjoyed following this story of witches, witch hunters and murder. If you like supernatural TV shows and films, as well as thrillers, I'm sure you'd enjoy this too. And for the gory horror lovers out there, I've found your new favourite show!

I ordered this at the same time I ordered the Subculture palette, and honestly I've enjoyed this one far more. I find the colours are beautiful, and they really suit my skin tone and eye colour. They're pigmented, easy to blend, and a dream to work with. Whether makeup is a hobby or a career for you, you need this palette. Seriously, there's a reason everyone raves about it. My favourite shades are 'Buon Fresco', 'Love Letter', and 'Vermeer'.

I adore these lipsticks. They're long-lasting, yet comfortable to wear, particularly with a lip balm underneath. I find with a lot of liquid lipsticks, after a while they start to flake off and feel uncomfortable on the lips, but not these. Even if you hate matte lipsticks, I think you would like these. My favourite (from the ones I have) is 'Hawkwind'. It's a deep brown shade that is flattering even on me!

If you've read my blog before, you'll probably know that I have very dry skin. The Body Shop's Vitamin E range has served me and my skin well over the past few months, so I decided to order myself the Ethiopian Honey Face Mask to hydrate my skin, and I love it. It's moisturising and feels silky on the skin, and I love its scent as well! If any of you out there have dry or sensitive skin as well, I would really recommend trying this. If you would like discounts on products from The Body Shop, you can join my Facebook group where I sell them [HERE].

For a couple of months, I've been trying my hand at bullet journalling, and these stickers have helped me to decorate my pages! I've also used them to decorate some boxes for storage recently. At the moment, the illustrator and artist who creates these is taking a break, but she'll be back soon with more beautiful designs!

What have you loved in August? I'd really like to hear your recommendations!
