Hello, and a huge warm welcome to my blog! My name’s Charlotte Jayne Jackson and I’m currently based in Shropshire, England. The main focus of my blog is fashion, food and adventures so if that sounds great to you stick around, take a look, and enjoy! ~ x
Heya lovelies, how are you doing? I’m feeling great ~
I went to the Trafford Centre in Manchester on Saturday to do a lil’ shopping (didn’t buy as much as I thought I would though…?) 🙂
I hardly bought any clothes (which is odd for me) and apart from one top in Zara I didn’t see much I fancied!! What I DID buy though was a little bit of make-up…
I went into Selfridges to get a Benefit bronzer as my friends got me the mini one for my 23rd birthday and it’s lasted until now (year and a half!). So I bought the larger version of that and, while I did, one of the shop assistants made me aware of a new Benefit mascara that gives great length, doesn’t clump, and really fans out your lashes!
How it works is that the formula is magnetic (apparently) and so all the mascara binds together to create great length (not sponsored haha) ❤
I was super intrigued by this concept and so I got one! And honestly guys, it’s actually amazing. I’ve never owned a mascara that wasn’t drug store bought and I don’t know why because this Benefit one is incredible!!
These pics don’t do it justice at all. I’m not one for eyelash extensions or glue on eyelashes as I find them irritating and weird on me (I’ve got big eyes so they make me look strange haha) but what I do always look for is a good mascara with great length and volume ~ this one is a perfect find for me x
The past week as been quite lovely for me as I’ve had a week off from work to visit South-West Wales with my family and boyfriend.
The weather was surprisingly gorgeous and we had a lot of great days exploring in the sun ❤
One Thursday of last week we visited the ‘National Botanic Garden of Wales’ for the day! It’s was a fun day but sadly it actually ended up raining for the majority of the time we were there… (typical!) but it was still a great day out!
Below I have added some photos I took of the day including the tropical house and many many beautiful (and weird) flowers 🌸
This huge dome contained lots of plants and flowers from across the world! I’ve taken photos of a few of my favs which you can see below 😀
The pics below are of the very cute Japanese garden ~
Hope you are having a great summer and I’ll be back on here soon lovelies ❤
You may have read my recent post from a few days ago where I shared some photos of a pizza and cocktails night that I had with some friends? Well on that same evening I ended up taking some cute Polaroids!
I got an Instax Wide 300 camera for Christmas this year and had only taken a few photos with it so far, so I thought I would take it out for a spin the other night 🙂
Some of them came out a little too white as the lighting wasn’t too great…but they are still so fun in my opinion! I thought you guys might want to see them so I thought I’d put them up on here ~
On Saturday I visited a couple of friends and we had a fabulous evening of making our own cocktails and pizza!
We all bought our own mixers and cocktail ingredients and ended up with our own versions of various cocktails such as a daiquiri and a pornstar martini.
Honestly, quite successful over all haha! We had a few sad attempts because we were estimating the amounts of alcohol but we ended up with some delicious drinks ~ we even garnished the glasses with little bits of melon and strawberry for fun ❤
We also made our own pizza in the pizza oven my friend owns and OMG they were insanely tasty. Like REALLY good. I made mine with goats cheese, mozzarella, olives and mushrooms and it may not have looked the prettiest but it certainly tasted amazing (trust me!).
And as if pizza isn’t filling enough…we also tucked in to a homemade cookie and caramel ice cream bake :D! We never managed to finish the entire thing though, but we certainly tried ~
Hope all your days are going well and you are all eating the most delicious food.
