Tag Tuesday: The Summer Tag!

Hello!

Since Summer is "officially" here I thought I'd try and get myself in the Summery mood with a good ol' tag! I stole this off the lovely Renee over on Lose The Road so please go check her out and send some love. 

Please feel free to take this tag for yourself if you're feeling Summery too!

1. WHEN DO/DID YOU GET OUT OF SCHOOL?
Oh, my days of school are long over. I wouldn't even want to think about how many years exactly. I feel ancient!

2. BEACHES OR POOLS?
I'd say beach! I find it so relaxing to hear the waves crashing against the beach!

3. ARE YOU GOING ON ANY SUMMER VACATIONS? IF NOT, WHAT'S YOUR DREAM SUMMER VACATION?
I haven't got anything planned at the moment but I'd be quite happy sitting next to a pool all day :)

4. S'MORES OR ICE CREAM?
I'd never tried S'mores (yes I know!) so I'd have to say ice cream!

5. WHATS YOUR MOST FUN SUMMER MEMORY?
Probably something back when I was kid. They seemed more fun and more like a break but when you're an adult you still have to go to work!

6. DOES YOUR SKIN TAN OR BURN?
A bit of both. I burn but it normally fades to a nice little tan! Best of both worlds!

7. HOW DO YOU WEAR YOUR HAIR IN THE SUMMER?
Up mostly. I do try and curl it a few times but it's normally so hot that I just shove it up in a bun or ponytail.

8. FAVORITE SUMMER NAIL POLISH?
I don't have a favourite but I'd say something bright and colourful. Normally it's a bright pink but I do have gorgeous aqua shade that I cannot resist.

9. WOULD YOU RATHER SPEND A DAY OUTSIDE IN A POOL OR INSIDE WATCHING NETFLIX?
Outside definitely! I hate being stuck indoors in the day!

10. SUNGLASSES OR HATS?
I have prescription sunglasses so I am normally always wearing them. I actually also don't own any hats apart from my wooly hats for Winter!

11. WHAT IS YOUR SONG OF THE SUMMER?
I don't actually have any particular song but anything a bit pop and with a good beat!

12. DO YOU HAVE A SUMMER BUCKET LIST? IF SO, SHARE SOME THINGS ON THE LIST.
I don't have a list at the moment but probably to just go out and have fun. Hopefully also do something new and exciting! ;)

13. BIKINIS, TANKINIS OR ONE PIECES?
Tankini or one piece all the way. I'm not brave enough for a bikini just yet!

14. MUST HAVE SUMMER MAKEUP PRODUCT?
BB Cream. Perfect for coverage but light enough to not clog my skin up!

15. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT SUMMER?
The long days and lots of sun. Being able to leave the house without a coat and wear dresses without leggings. Beer gardens and days out. So many things basically!

Seventeen Miracle Matte Pressed Powder Review!

Hello!

Seventeen is probably one of my favourite make-up brands at the moment and a couple of weeks ago I treated myself by putting a small order in with Boots for a few of my favourites. It turned out to be a slight hit and miss haul as my foundation was on offer but my powder page wasn't loading! I decided to alternate my powder and get another one from the Seventeen range and I brought the Miracle Matte Pressed Powder.

As I suffer with oily skin I do need powders that are either extremely matte or are long lasting and can keep my horrible shiny forehead at bay. My original powder was quite good for this and changing made me a little anxious but since I was on my last scraps on powder, I needed a new one desperately so I picked a shade and added to my basket!

As I ordered online I couldn't really get an accurate idea of what shade to order so in the end I decided on Natural Fair as it seemed like a light/medium colour. When it arrived I thought it was way too light for my skin but obviously since I'd just brought it, I had to give it the benefit of the doubt and give it a go!

Perfect chance for me to test it out is when I'm at work so the next morning I applied my make-up as normal and covered my face in the powder and on my way I went. On my first break in the day I noticed my face was still shine free and I didn't need to reapply until well into the afternoon. Obviously it didn't last the whole day but for a product that brags about lasting 16 hours, it didn't disappoint!

Overall it's a great powder and I really enjoyed it! I would definitely repurchase but maybe in a slightly darker colour! 

You can check it out for yourselves on the Boots website where it's on sale for the bargain price of £3.99!

Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture Shaver Review!

Hello!

When it comes to shaving, I have to admit I'm pretty boring. The shaving part itself is SO boring and it kills me having to spend so much money on shavers. I didn't ask to be hairy and I definitely didn't ask for being hairy to not be acceptable in this day and age! I know a lot of you are probably thinking "Why don't you wax?" or "Why don't you try an epilator?". Pain. That's why. I hate pain and will try and avoid it at all costs. So that basically leaves shaving. Urgh!

In February's Glossybox we were all kindly sent a brand new Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk Shaver and it was probably the first time in a long while that I actually had a "luxary" shaver - BIC is normally my best friend! At first I wasn't that fussed but after a few uses I had finally saw the error of my ways and was in love with shavers! 

Unforunately it start to do a bit blunt so on my next trip to Tesco, I vowed to pick up some replacement heads but when I finally got there there was a huge sale on most shavers. So instead of buying just the heads, I came out with a whole new shaver. Whoops! I decided to test out the Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture shaver! I was drawn to the special shea butter soap surrounding the shaver and was actually looking forward to my next shower so I could test it out!

As I mentioned above, the main reason I brought this shaver was for the shea butter soap around the shaver head. I've used shavers like this before when I was a teenager but it's been a while! The idea of the soap is to help moisture and create a lather to ensure a smooth and soft shave and I have to admit that my legs did feel a lot softer after using. I found because of the soap as well, it was great for if you were in a rush and didn't have time to have a shower as the soap lathered up and didn't leave the horrible dry shave rash.

The gorgeous scent of the shea butter is my favourite part of this shaver and it only gets stronger when it's lathered up in the shower. I'm not sure how long the soap will last though as even after a few uses I could see how quickly it had gone down.

I'd definitely recommend this shaver if you fancy something a little different plus for the price I paid I would it's not a bad product!

You can check this out at Boots, Superdrug or at Tesco like me. Psst - It's currently on offer at Superdrug for £3.48!

PETAL POPPET BLOGS TURNS 2!

Hello!

Two years today I started this blog as abit of a distraction from my personal life and since then I've really grown to love blogging and the blogging community. The first year wasn't so good and I only had a few followers but in the second year I really think it's really grew!

Two years is probably the longest I've ever stuck to one thing and not bored of it and I think the main reason for this is my followers! I really enjoy communicating with you and I actually feel like part of a community!

This is just a short post to celebrate where this blog has gone and to also thank everybody who is following me on any social media sites or even just comes by for a visit! You're the reason I stick to blogging. Thank you! ♥

Here's to year 3!

Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque Review in Appechissant!

Hello!

As I've said in a past few posts, I've not really been feeling my best and blogging really has taken a back seat. In an attempt to cheer myself up, I did however order a small handful of make-up from Boots as they had an amazing offer on their Bourjois products (haul here)! To get this offer I had to spend over £15 on Bourjois products which was considerably easy since there was so many products I have been dying to try.

The first product that came to mind was the Rouge Edition Lip Laque. I've seen so many different bloggers raving about these months ago and I was always gutted that I didn't get one so I thought this would be a perfect chance to pick myself one up and finally give it a go!

I couldn't decide on what shade to order so I just went for one at random and went for number 1, Appechissant. I wasn't too sure what the colour would be like when I ordered it but I was pleasantly surprised when I opened up my package. It's a very nude pinky mauve colour and I think it suits me perfectly! It's great for everyday wear but it's also bright enough that you could wear it on a night or special occasion as well. A versatile shade!

The formula itself was a little bit of a disappoint for it's lasting time and I found that a few hours after applying my lips had dried out and needed reapplying. This was a bit of a bad point for me but I did notice that the colour had stayed on my lips so that saved itself a little!

Overall I really like this product and I can happily see myself using it a lot over the next couple of months. Perfect Summer shade!

You can check it and the rest of the range here where they're currently on offer for £5.99 part of the Sunkiss Collection set deal!
