Zoella Beauty | Creamy Madly Dreamy & Makeup Bag

I am a huge fan of Zoella. I have been for over 2 years and hearing about all the good things she's achieving right now just makes me so proud of her. She has worked so hard to get here and now that she's at the top she is working even harder and looking fabulous while doing it. I felt so happy about her new pamper range and I ordered some of her stuff on FeelUnique as soon as it was out.

Lets talk about the whole range for a second. She has a Fizz Bar which is shaped like a chocolate bar but it's a bath fizz and the reason I didn't get it is because I unfortunately have a shower in my house instead of a bath and I wouldn't have been able to use it. She has a Body Mist(Blissful Mistful) which apparently has the same smell as the fizz bar and the lotion. It has a fruity, fresh scent and the packaging is absolutely adorable. I really wanted the mist but unfortunately they can't ship it to Turkey as it's a liquid. The range includes a lovely Candle (Let's Glow) which is essential for a pamper evening and again the packaging (which is very important) is so cute. It seems quite small compared to other candles but nevertheless it still looks beautiful. It was out of stock on FeelUnique which made me very sad. The range also includes a Bath Soak & Shower Cream (Soak Opera). She has two big Makeup Bags. One of them is blue with light pink polka dots and has Zoe's eyes on it. The other is a pink one with the same polka dots in white but this one has a cute guinea pig on it with glasses! Lastly she has a Body Lotion (Creamy Madly Dreamy) which is huge(160 ml) and just looks adorable with the lace details and the rose gold writing. 

Onto what I ordered;

I got the Body Lotion which is 160 ml and looks huge. I was expecting it to be the size of a hand cream but I was wrong and I'm so glad I was since this won't end that fast. It has a fresh, fruity scent to it and is perfect for mornings I think. The product sinks into your skin very fast and doesn't make you feel sticky which is great. It just wakes you up and makes you feel very fresh. 
On the packaging the product is described as;

"Totally tempting dream cream for a smooth and silky body. Fresh and girly, this indulgent body lotion will pamper your skin with a gorgeously scented creamy cuddle. Enriched with Vitamin E, Aloe and Shea Butter to soften and condition the body because your skin needs a bit of love too!"
Even the product description is adorable.

The other item I ordered was the Blue Makeup Bag. It is huge so it's great for when you're travelling or even for storing your daily makeup. I love how it's long enough for brushes as most makeup bags are too short and I can't fit in my brushes. I love the fabric and the colour of the inside. It is beautiful in general and Zoe's eyes at the front just makes it even better(felt a little creepy saying that...).

So these are the products I ordered from the range. I'm so proud of Zoe for everything she has achieved. She has been an amazing role model for both me and her other young fans. I hope she is happy with her range as much as we are and I hope there will be more things to celebrate on her behalf. She is also releasing a book soon which is even more exciting so if you'd like to pre-order it you can do it by clicking here
You can get the products from FeelUnique or from Superdrug. All the products are very cheap as they are all £5 aside from the mist and the Makeup Bags which are £8

Life Update | October

It was august when I last wrote an update post and even though I know this is the least type of post you'd like to see on this blog I quite like filling in all of you and my future self on what's been going on in my life. Especially since A LOT of mind boggling things have happened in the past 2 months. 

♡ Last time I wrote I said I was going to move into my own house with 2 of my high school friends. That didn't happen. In a way I learnt once again why I didn't like the people in my high school. After we signed the contract to the house and everything was done, they came back with their stuff so we could move in and they all of a sudden; didn't like the house, they thought that if we moved in together our friendship wouldn't last(which was in their language "we don't want to move in with you because we wouldn't be able to stand you for a whole year") so we had to drop our lease which wasn't easy and there were all sorts of problems and at one point of last month I felt like shit because of this. Lesson learnt; make sure you are %100 sure the people you're going to move in with aren't backstabbers. 

♡ I started my second year in university which is going great. I must say after the entire house fiasco things decided to get better a lot quicker and everything that happened has been pretty amazing *knocks on wood*. I love my classes this year, I picked all my classes from the right teachers and they all love me as much as I love them and the topics we are learning this year are probably better than last years. We learned about England's history last year and it was very interesting and exciting but so many things happened from the beginning till the end that it was pretty hard to learn in such a short time. This year we are learning about America's history and right now we are taking things slow(slower than last year) and since I chose the right teacher I actually enjoy history. 

♡ One of the biggest changes in my life is that I am now doing a double major... in THEATRE! I am so excited for this. It's not official yet but next term it will be official and I already started taking classes from the theatre department. I'm taking fencing, voice and speech, movement and improvisation. I can't believe I have the opportunity to study two of my favourite things at the same time. I felt so bad for a long time as I hadn't done anything about improving my acting or making a move to get into acting professionally and now I got given the opportunity by one of my instructors from last term. I'm so excited but that also means I have to work really hard as I'm now taking 9 classes instead of 6 and my GPA has to be 3.5 which is currently 3.46. I have to work hard for each class and give my all which is very time consuming(which is why I haven't blogged that much in a while).

♡ I started making amends with some old friends from last year whom I had a bit of falling apart with. We realised how much we missed each other in the last few months since we haven't talked for an entire term as we were both hanging out with different people but now we are back together and I'm just really glad we started to hang out again. I missed that group, they were really good for me.

♡ Lastly, I'm going back to London! It will be for a holiday but I'll be spending the New Year in London with my mom and my sister. I'm so excited to go back. I had the best time when I was there in June and I am over the moon to know that I'll be going back in 2 months! I'm already making plans on what to do when I'm there. I'll be there for a week (26th of December - 2nd of January) I'm quite sad I'm missing Christmas but I hope they won't take off all the Christmassy things right after Christmas. I really wanted to see it. I hope everything goes according to plan and we will be able to go safely because I know I will be having the best New Years in London. So excited! 

So these are all the highlights of my month. It was such a whirlwind that I can't comprehend how all those changes happened in such a short time. If you read all of this then kudos to you since I know it probably doesn't sound as interesting to others as it does to me :D 
Thank you for reading everyone and I hope you have a lovely October. My birthday is in 10 days so I'm  very excited about that.

 If you have any suggestions on where I should go in London I would love to hear them and I also would LOVE to hear what you are up to. Fill me in down in the comments :)

Have a lovely day!
