Etude's House Proof 10 Mascara 
#1 Smokey Proof (Black)

I purchased this mascara while i was on holiday, I got super excited when i saw it.. i wanted soo many things!. 
I believe this is a korean brand. (correct me if im wrong)
I got it for 849+PHP. Quite expensive for a mascara but you know when your just excited and buy something without looking at how much the product actually is. Yea that happened.

 What it claims: "Proof's 10 waterproof mascara supplies clean, intense definition for a long lasting, Perfect 10 smokey eye look" 

I only put it on today, and it seems alright.. purpose of me wearing it is that the forecast said light rain, and you never know what light rain is here in England! 

Ohoh check out their website

Whats your fav. waterproof mascara?

I had a longggggggg day today. 
I couldnt even stop by Superdrug to pick up their beautycard :( 
I was in college from 10 - 8!
I didnt even go home after, and i know i should have!. Went to my cousins to eat Palabok (anyone tried that?)
And yeah when i got home i had a package waiting for me :) (dont you love those days when you wasnt expecting anything and its just there) *HIGH CHEEKS 
Yupp i won a giveaway from Sofia's Journal
This is what i won .. 

The infamous LC 'Style'
I was going to pick this in Philippines, but with the exchange rate so shit it worked out cheaper if i bought it here.
I just havent had the time to actually go get it, so when i found out i won, ahh words cant express how happy i was!. 

CHECK Sofia's Journal OUT.

I know what youre thinking.. I just came back from holiday, I really shouldn't be buying anything for at least a month. ahhhhh i should really hide my card -___-

But since ive been back I have bought: 

H&M: Crop top- £9.99
Shorts- £12.99 (i have these shorts in a darker colour and theyre so comfortable i got a lighter wash)
Dorothy Perkins flats- £18.40 (20% student discount - usually 10% but they had an event going on)
Topshop ballet flats - £14.40 (10% student discount)
Yes i got two nude flats within the space of 2days and the reason for that is the DP ones hurt my feet. Like i got 3 blisters and the back of my heel was bleeding like crazyyyy! I defo wasnt wearing them again!. Do you think I can get a refund?
Anyways yea the other ones, I wen college and when i got out the station it was raining -___- didnt you check the weather amelia youre thinking right? well i did and nowhere did it say it was going to rain, so my flats got wet like WET .. if you follow me on twitter I twitpic'd. it was disgusting, it was basically like i was walking bare foot.
And seeing as i didnt have nude flats I decided to purchase these.
Primark: Top - £8.00
Bikini - £7.00
Topshop: Highwaisted shorts - £28.80 (with student discount, of course)
I also bought light wash denim leggings but their in the wash. they were £18, with student discount. 
I got another two of the tanning oil, partly because its buy 1 get 1 free atm in Superdrug.
I got these for £12.86 (10% student discount)
Now my sort of big purchase was these Beats by Dr. Dre
they cost me £79.99 and i got them 2days within the time i got back.
Reason: i thought they were cheaper in fili so I was going to ask my mum to get them for me, as they were 7,500PHP, and with the current exchange rate 7,000PHP = £100. Yeaaaaa so youknow I just got them, and boy am i glad.
You dont even need to put up the volume to maximum for it to be loud.
I want everyone to go buy these now! lol

What have you been buying recently?

Cotton <3

P.s i finish 16th May so the mini giveaway will be up around those times

Ft. Some Boots French manicure thingy?

I was bored and what else to do than paint my nails, nevermind that I have reports due in next week. 

I was quite bored with always leopard printing my nails and I wanted to do something new
The results: 
It took me just less than an hour, I know doesnt that sound long!
But i kept making mistakes, and so have come to the conclusion that I do not have a steady hand at all!. 
But im liking it. 
Going to have the same design next week, but maybe switch up the colour 
Any ideas what colours i should use?

&you're thinking wtf does MOTM stand for
well it stands for 'Mascara Of The Moment' - in my dictionary anyways lol

I kinda cheated, its a combo of two mascara's that I like & the effect it creates.

Maybelline's falsies & Covergirl's LashBlast - Both in Black
(Yes i am aware of my dark circles, but i cba to put concealer, on this morning lol)
Do you like this effect? 

My eyelashes are quite long so I always go for mascaras which claim to add volume. 
The other day someone asked me if i was wearing false lashes :)

What mascara are you liking atm?

mini haul + NOTM

whats the timee?
time for another mini haul and NOTM!
(you probably saw from the title of this post lol)

What did i get.. 
Ive been looking for this for agessss!.
Since I got the Viva la Juicy rollerball on my holiday last year I saw it was running out so i hopped onto ebay.. 
 I was so happy when i found this on ebay for less than £25. 
Bargain! Well for me, because i know people got it in Boots during the Christmas sales, but all the Boots near me never seemed to have it. I love all 3 rollerballs, and highly suggest yous take a sniff or buy these if you spot them about. 

Now finding the all about eyes sample was a mission and I half!! I went to 6 different shops, and finally i saw it hidden inbetween another magazine in Sainbusy's. 
I have the all about eyes rich eye cream, and I want to see how the original formula performs. 
I also got the Aero lamb thingy, and boyy it is chocolatety!
Im giving it to my sister since it was 2 for £1, and i already ate mine. 

My current NOTM: Accessorize in Aztec 
I won this nail polish in a giveaway and I am glad I did. I love ittttt
The way it slyly goes from green to purple. 
I got compliments on it today :)
The camera obviously doesnt do this polish justice. 
I recommend this! 

Oh and something i was munching on at college.. 

Did you pick up a Glamour mag?
If you did, tell me what you got.. 

Until next time, 
Cotton xx

&&yes i know bloggers still being stupid, i might have to extend it seeing as I have like 4 entries LOL.
