The stuff I don't like TAG

This tag has been going around YouTube but I thought I'd write a post about it, I think it helps people get to know a person a bit better if they know what pisses them off! So here are a few things that rattle my cage...
1. People invading my personal space. If you are talking to me, please don't get all up in my face. I hate it when someone needs their head to be practically touching yours during a conversation, it just makes me feel awkward and cringey. If u see me moving back whilst you talk to me, YOU ARE TOO CLOSE, back it up a bit!!! Lol!
2. People who try to make you feel inferior to them. This is self-explanatory.
3. Very thick over drawn eyebrows or very thin over plucked eyebrows. Find the happy medium :)
4. Claw-like false nails, with dirt underneath *shivers* yuck yuck yuck.
5. Leggings as trousers when the leggings are see through. You offend my eyes. Wear another pair.
6. People who are incapable of talking about anything other than themselves, and who will always find a way to bring the conversation back to them, I just can't be arsed and I will scream.
7. Judgemental people. Nobody has the right to judge anyone unless you know the full story and set of circumstances behind every situation. Unless maybe you are an actual judge :-/
8. Those people who are always right. But I think I might be one of them lol!
9. Spiders. I have mentioned this before. Their very existence offends me. It's a fucking liberty.
10. People who don't like Irish people. Hehe!
11. People who never get drunk but instead just watch and store all the info to try and embarrass you in your hungover state the day after.
12. People who need to know the price of everything you buy or have ever bought.
I could go on and on but I think if I do I'll sound like a bitch and I promise I'm not in. In real life I'm very laid back and easygoing, and there's very few people I don't or can't get along with, this is just a light hearted list of stuff that is an irritation. Do you agree or disagree with anything I've written? I tag anyone reading to write their post and leave me a comment so I can check it out.
Thanks for reading, Love Steph xoxox

Maybelline Gel Eyeliner "Ultraviolet"

I do love a bit of gel eyeliner. I'm no good with liquid, my hand isn't steady enough but I find gel a bit easier because of the thicker consistency. My favourite is the Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner which I have in both black and brown and they can be found in Boots and Superdrug for around about £7 or £8. Sooo when I saw this new colour which is at the minute exclusive to Superdrug, I got excited!
It's a lovely purple colour, still dark enough so it isn't madly noticeable but a perfect colour for Christmas. This stays put all day, even in the waterline, comes with a decent brush and in my opinion is really good value for money. The only thing I would say is that the formula of the purple seems to be a bit dryer and trickier to work with than the brown and black, but if I can manage it then anyone can. Try it out!

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

I have a confession to make: I am a bit of a foundation whore. I know what one works for me yet I continue to be lured in by adverts and blogger/you tuber recommendations. The latest one to tempt me was Maybelline Fit Me foundation, mainly because of Tanya Burr (Pixi2woo on YouTube or her blog is

The thing I liked most about this was the fact that you can choose a foundation to match either a pink(cool) undertoned skin or a yellow(warm) undertoned skin. However this presented a problem: what undertone is my skin!? I've never been matched up at a makeup counter before and not having any formal makeup training I was a bit stumped but I read a few blogposts etc on how to determine this and long story short chose shade 125 shown above. I really wanted to like this foundation, especially since its less pricey than many others at £7.99 in Boots and Superdrug. It applied well but once on, it just sat on top of my skin. All day. Allllllll day. Even though I powdered to set, it stayed tacky to the touch, patches disappeared off of my face and to be honest I just looked a shiny mess, so I hope you will forgive the fact I haven't shown a pic with this on. I just don't get what the fuss is about, quite frankly in my opinion it's not worth the hype! My oily skin could be a major factor here with Fit Me just NOT fitting me. Maybe it works really well for dry skin. I don't know. What are your experiences with this product?
