Strollz

Monday, 28 March 2016

It has only been the Easter holiday for a few days and I'm already bored of revision. Being the organised young adult I am, I spontaneously messaged a friend asking if she could go out for a coffee (or hot chocolate if you're me) and wonder around Bermondsey. So we did. It's a shame Ambra couldn't come seeing as she's dying from chicken pox right now (soz mate) As I live around 10 minutes away from Bermondsey street, it's a quick little get away, the area is so rustic and is filled to the brim with hipsters. Fuckoffee has been a cafe I've been wanting to try for so so long now, my friend Clare, being a coffee enthusiast was super excited whilst I was just trying to figure out if they had a hot chocolate on the menu because quite frankly, coffee sucks. The place is super duper chill, the vibe is just so quirky and hip (cringe) however it's damn overpriced...£2.40 for a tiny hot chocolate. As the white cube gallery was literally across the road from us we just went in to have a look- it's a minimalists dream. Enjoy the photos! 

masc + curl

Friday, 25 March 2016

In case you were wondering, masc is short for mascara, the word is too long to type. I'm not exactly sure what this post will be but it's slightly heading towards a review type thing so I'll go with that. The Maybelline lash sensational mascara has been a cult favourite since last May but of course I'm late to join the craze. I've grown so accustomed to using my Diorshow iconic that I became adamant that I'd never find another mascara that will do better than it. I was wrong. So so wrong! Especially now as the formula has dried up a little it works amazingly and really helps lift my lashes, I have naturally long lashes but I do like to give that extra length and fluttery, daintiness too. The mascara is very black, unlike those other mascaras that claim to be 'carbon black' or 'dark black' so that's always a plus...no one wants ashy, grey lashes. Prior to using the mascara, I also curl my lashes, now this is a fairly new step to routine because I always find it so time consuming (takes around 5 seconds but y'know) I use the Lancome eyelash curler and it really does curl your lashes and give them an extra push, when I cba I usually just curl my lashes and leave them natural. When I do follow up with the lash sensational, it legit looks as if I've got some kind of eyelash extensions, the length and curl is that deeeep. The mascara wand itself has the curved/spoon shape so that definitely helps to lift as well as evenly distribute the formula so you have zero clumps as well as great length + lift. I really don't know what to say other than I highly advise you try this out, it's perhaps the best drugstore mascara I've tried so far!

Do you use the Lash Sensational mascara? What are your thoughts on it?
