My Everyday Breakfast

When it comes to breakfast I like to keep it the same everyday. I don't know why but it just works for me. The only time I would change my breakfast is if I'm in a rush (so I grab a Belvita bar) or if it's a weekend (Big breakfast time). 
I've been eating this combination for about 4 months now and I can honestly say that I don't get hungry early. I usually eat this around 8 and start to get peckish around 1. Whereas when I eat a bowl of Coco Pops I tend to get hungry after an hour. So here's a few snapshots of what I eat and how I make it :)


What you'll need:
- Green Tea
- Peanut Butter
- Banana
- Wholemeal Seeded Bread
- Butter*
- Manuka Honey*

(* - Not necessarily needed, just for my taste buds to be happy) 

Toast your seeded bread. A little bit of butter (not actually needed) and a ton of peanut butter. Smooth not chunky!

Slice up some ripe bananas so it will fit on your toast.

Place your sliced bananas on your bread. Be messy with it or be a neat freak like me and put it in rows. Oh and we can't forget the green tea. I add the smallest amount of honey just to cut out the bitterness. Leave to brew for about 2 minutes and then take the tea bag out. If I'm having a long day at uni or just having a busy day I make sure I put a few almonds on the side to as they help to keep cravings to a minimum during the day.

 Now sit back, eat your peanut buttered bananas with almonds and sip on your lovely hot green tea.

Review -Sleek Ultra Matte V2 Palette

Look what I got my hands on!

I'm not the one for shimmery colours and glitter. I'm very much into dark colours and they have to be matte. Even when I'm putting my foundation, contour and even blush, I prefer it to be all Matte. It's just what I find to be beautiful.

1. Orbit
2. Ink
3. Highness
4. Noir
5. Dune
6. Pillow Talk
7. Thunder
8. Maple
9. Flesh
10. Paper Bag
11. Villan
12. Fern

Now for the review. 

Pigmentation: Amazing
Variety of colour: Enough dark shades and light shades to create a smokey effect for day or night.
Price: £7.99 (works out to be 0.67p for each eyeshadow. BARGAIN.)
Where can I buy it: http://www.superdrug.com/sleek-makeup/sleek-makeup-ultra-mattes-pallette-dark/invt/452857
Verdict: I love it, even though I'm not a huge eyeshadow person.

I am sure to buy other palettes like the 'Shadow Storm' and the 'Au Naturel'. Perfect shades for day and evening, just be careful on the colour combinations you choose.

Toiletry Haul

Most of my skincare toiletries were running out, so a little trip to Superdrug was in order. I don't know why I choose Superdrug over Boots all the time. But anyways let's see what I bought.

I was only supposed to get skincare things but I did sneakily buy two make up products. I did try very hard to just buy what I needed.

After the amount of times I've changed my skincare routine is unbelievable. I used to get acne only on my forehead which was annoying. Once I changed my product from Simple to Garnier I noticed such a HUGE difference. I only used Simple because it was gentle enough for my sensitive and dry skin. Plus using the the Overnight clearing serum and Witch's skin clearing primer has helped to reduce the redness and soreness of spots. I'm not saying that my spots just disappear completely but there is a significant difference in the size and colour. It makes it easier to conceal too.

We all need silky soft skin and this helps a lot. My legs are so much softer because of this. Protects my skin during the cold winter days and helps to prepare the skin for the December parties!!

I make my dentist happy by using these two products, morning and night. I do love a pearly white smile. Say cheeeeseeeee.

I have an excuse for the mascara. I was actually running out of my other one. But I just really wanted to get at least one shade of the Apocalips. I just had to. Perfect shade for the upcoming parties.

I'm thinking of doing a skincare post soon, what do you think? Any other posts that you'd want to see from me?
