My Top 6 DVDs for a Girls Night In.

Night in with the girls and want a small break from having a goss? Here are the perfect DVDs to fill that gap that will have you, laughing, crying, bitching and singing away till your hearts content. - Note - this does not contain the film "The Notebook" like the majority, I mixed it up a wee bit!

top row - Coyote Ugly, How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days, Mean Girls
bottom row - Mamma Mia, Dirty Dancing, P.s I Love You

Coyote Ugly
Right so anyone that says they've watched this and didn't like , then I am speechless for a change. This films about a girl called Violet (Piper Perabo) who wants to chase her dreams of becoming a singer and moves out of her home she shares with her Dad to pursue her career. On the way she ends up working in a club and becomes an infamous "Coyote" and on the way she finds the love of her life within "Mr" Kevin O'Donnell. She conquers her stage fright to show everyone what she's made of and in a film full of ups and downs it's sure to make you and your friends want to hit the town after watching it, and you'll be oozing to dance on the bars and look for your own Mr O'Donnell (well, if you don't already have one that is). Oh, and with LeAnn Rimes cameo in the look out for some of her hit songs!

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
During this rom-com prepare for you sides and jaws to be aching with laughter! With two big names in the acting world taking the lead roles (Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey) in the film they do it complete justice, the plot of the film? Ben (Matthew) makes a bet that he can make any woman fall in love with him in 10 days, the woman? Andie (Kate) works for a magazine were she's going to feature an article "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" every possible way to put a man off wanting a second date, when they start dating unbeknown to them they are working against each other, in the battle of the sexes who will come out the winner? Will they find out each others game plan? fall in love? or maybe even both? Must watch and see! - best for those wanting to laugh uncontrollably.

Mean Girls
Okay so at a girls night in there's sure to be some "bitching" of some sort going on (I know you do it, don't try kid me on). Anyway, this film set in a high school is full of bitchy girls "The Plastics" who recruit Cady (Lindsay Lohan - pre crazy days) who just happens to be against them and pulling pranks left right and centre, that is until she's roped in and becomes "one of them". All is well until she sets her sights on Aaron (Jonathan Bennett) who just so happens to be the "head plastic" Regina's (Rachel McAdams) ex boyfriend and as you can imagine all hell breaks loose. Can Cady turn things around? I can guarantee by the end of this you'll have either placed yourself in one of the "cliques" or half way through already creating your own "burn book" with your girls! (last one not recommended, did you learn nothing from the film?!).

Mamma Mia
All singing, all dancing film perfect for those keen for a sing-a-long in the hope your neighbours aren't sleeping through the wall to you! You will no doubt know of the songs in this film as they are all ABBA songs. Again a film with an amazing five star cast Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Dominic Cooper, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Julie Walters - the list is endless. The story is about Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) who is living on a Greek island with her mum Donna (Meryl Streep) and her fiancèe Sky (Dominic Cooper) and on the run up to their wedding Sophie discovers from her mums diary from around the time she was born there is 1 of 3 potential fathers to walk her up the isle? What happens next? Watch it to see, perfect film for a night in full of laughs, loves and lyrics!

Dirty Dancing
The classic of all classics, if you don't know the line "Nobody puts Baby in a corner" you've clearly never watched this film, and shame on you!! Frances "Baby" (Jennifer Grey) - goes on a family trip were she becomes involved with the camps dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze) who's world is worlds away from hers. Things look up for the pair when Baby becomes Johnny's dance partner after his former dance partner falls ill (all explained in the film) however this relationship isn't approved of by Baby's father who bans her from seeing him but as if that's going to stop a lady in love. I'm not afraid to label this the best love story about! Best for a cute night in where you and your best friends are sharing your relationship troubles. 

P.s I Love You
Prepare to break your heart crying, I'm not even kidding! Thought "The Notebook" was sad? You thought wrong, this is the one I cried my eyes out to - and also one of my favourite films of all time without a doubt. The basics - Holly (Hilary Swank) is married to the hottest Irish man to walk the earth in the form of Gerry (Gerrard Butler) in this love story. Like all couples they bicker and moan but Holly would have that back in a minute after she loses the love of her life to an illness, with no-one to comfort her as well as he would have done it's a good job forward thinker Gerry has wrote a list of letters for Holly to keep her going in life. As far as her mum and sisters are concerned these letters aren't doing her any justice cause they are keeping her in hope of Gerry's return but Holly thinks otherwise , with each letter coming every passing day will Holly ever be able to move on? With every letter signed off "P.s I Love You" you're going to have to watch and see.

Hope you enjoyed this random spur of the moment post - I know these films may not be to everyones taste but they're films I enjoy. If you have any you enjoy that you would like to share with me be sure to leave a comment which I'll reply to as soon as I see it.

August Favourites.

Okay so I know it's a bit late in the day to be starting a "monthly favourites" when it's half way through the year but hey ho, better late than never.

To start with, one of my favourite things I've been using this month is this Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in 005 Silky Beige, I wasn't really ever a powder user so to speak, but after seeing this raved about all over beauty blogs and on youtube I thought I had to buy it to see what all the fuss was about as I had just bought the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation and since we're in the summer months my skin has been that wee bit more shinier so I've been using this over the foundation to take the shine away which it has done and has made my skin appear flawless, and on the plus side it was only around £4 mark from my local pharmacy (chemist).

Another thing which I had been seeing all over beauty blogs etc have been "Real Techniques" brushes and basically if you haven't heard of them well where have you been? have you been living under a rock recently? This brush is the Expert Face Brush. This brush range was created by Samantha Chapman - from Pixiewoo , all you avid youtubers watchers like myself will know of Sam (and if not you may know of her brother Jim). This is my first and only Real Techniques brush so far but I will definitely be purchasing the rest of the set as they do the job to a professional standard and are also soft on the skin. They also aren't too badly priced for being such great brushes, worth the recommendation.

This powder blusher is from Illamasqua and I recently got it in their sale. I think it was £10 in their sale and usually retails for £18. The left hand side picture is with the flash and the right hand side is with the flash off, the colour of this is a pink with an orangey undertone and is really quite dark if too much product is applied so I would say start off lightly and then build up the product so you don't end up looking like co co the clown. That said it's one of the best blushers I've used, really pigmented and long lasting - so worth the money, on or off of sale. Also, for anyone looking to purchase this blusher it is called "Sophie" .

I feel this is quite random to be blogging about when the rest of the products are makeup based but in August I feel this has been something I've used quite a lot. For those who are wondering what this is it's a glass nail file which I received as a gift from a family member a few years back so I have no idea where it's from but I'm sure you can pick them up in a high street store / drugstore for a less that £10 which is relatively cheap considering they can last years. As far as I'm aware once you've used it you run it under a cold tap to clean it and stop it from clogging and that's it ready to reuse. Since I've not being wearing artificial nails recently to give my natural nails a break I've used this to keep them at a workable length and strong. If you don't already have one you should look into buying one as there's nothing to lose. - as I have no idea where mines is from I've found an online site where these can be purchased, they have loads and are all lovely, you can find them if you click here.

Something I picked up at the start of the month was this small eyebrow kit costing only £2.99 from a "B&M" store in the high street which for anywhere that doesn't have a "B&M" it's basically just a bargain store which sells lots of different things and I saw this little "W7 Eyebrow Kit". I know W7 isn't a big brand name and some of their products can be quite poor quality , at £2.99 I just went ahead and bought it as usually I just stick to the same eyebrow kit with the one colour in it. However, upon trying this product I was surprised how pigmented the colours were for it being such a cheap product (as seen in the picture above). The colours on my hand left to right are numbers 1 to 4 labelled in the powder on the actual product, the left hand side picture is with the flash and the right hand side picture without. I'm now super glad I gave this product a chance and think I'll be using it more often - the product comes with a small brush however I don't find it worked that well so I've been using one I already have so maybe look into getting another brush if you don't already have one and want this product. Also for anyone wanting to know, the colour I've been wearing is number 3, the dark brown. (They also aren't named by colour but I'd say 1- blonde , 2- light brown , 3- dark brown , 4- black).

The Liebster Award!

Hi Lovelies! I was nominated for this Award by Katrina who you can find over at - , so thanks to her I can pass this on to 11 of you lot, the whole idea behind the "Liebster Award" is that you tag bloggers with less that 200 followers into it in the hope that it helps their blogs be discovered and lets you get to know other bloggers a bit better! - cute. I will pick people that I follow on bloglovin' and this is where I based the amount of followers on, so sorry if you actually have more than the 200 stated in the rules you can blame bloglovin' haha. 

The rules for this are as follows:

1- You must link this back to the person who nominated you.
2- You must answer the 11 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you.
3- You must pick 11 bloggers with under 200 followers to be nominated for this award.
4- You must come up with 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
5- You must go on your nominees blog to notify them.

The questions I was given:

1) When and why did you decide to start blogging?

I started blogging in June as I had just finished college and was bored having nothing to do whilst job hunting, and I had been watching youtubers who had their own blogs and they inspired me to start blogging.

2) What is your favourite drugstore/high street beauty brand and favourite high end beauty brand?

My favourite drugstore/high street beauty brand is Rimmel, and my favourite high end beauty brand is M.A.C 

3) What is your favourite season?

Summer, even if I did moan when it got too hot this year - I live in Scotland what do you expect?! haha

4) If you could only wear one colour of lipstick for the rest of your life what would it be and why?

Even though I'm a purple lip kinda girl if it was for the rest if my life I'd pick pink as I don't think purple goes with everything.

5) Who are your favourite YouTubers or Bloggers?

If I had to write my favourite youtubers I'd be here all night long, but I'll give you a couple and will do an asterisk* beside the ones whos blogs I also read that are favourites of mine - Zoella* , SprinkleofGlitter* , Tanya Burr* , Marcus Butler , Alfie Deyes , Jim Chapman , Joey Graceffa , Doug , Tyler Oakley , O2L etc! WOW.  

6) What are your favourite type of shoes to wear?

My favourite type are gutties cause they're comfy and simple to shove on whether it be wee cheap ones or converse.

7) Who is your favourite music artist?

I feel the need to do 2 a male and female so I'm going to - just to make it fair, the female I favour is Pink and my favourite male is Professor Green, but I do love a variety of music so no need to judge on this.

8) Would you rather not be able to wash your hair for a week or not be able to wear make up for a week?

I'd rather not be able to wash my hair cause I'd shove in some dry shampoo which does the job.

9) Where is your dream holiday destination?

I've only ever been abroad once in my life so anywhere would do fine, but I'd love to go to Florida and swim with dolphins.

10) What is your favourite thing about blogging?

My favourite thing about blogging is that I can share my thoughts and any tips that I may have with everyone else and hope that it helps them out.

11) Lipstick or Lip gloss?

Lipstick , not really too fussed when it comes to lipgloss.

Beauty Blogger Tag!

Saw this on someones blog can't remember who's, so sorry! (if it was you - then I give you full credit for it of course) , anyway I thought it was a really fun, good way to get to know more about me, so here goes...

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is naturally curly but because of its length it's just wavy/messy. I prefer my hair curly/wavy anyway as when I do straighten it the humidity in the air makes it go "curly" anyway.

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I've had it dyed by a mobile therapist once before and it was just a tbar of foil highlights when I was 13 or so, I then grew it out and when I was about 17 I done a DIY job with "Schwarzkopf - cyper purple" which was gorgeous, I done this a few times then wanted to grow it out but it went a horrible red colour over time so I put a "Dark Chocolate - unsure of brand, possibly L'Oreal"  over it and it lifted a good bit and since I've just let it grow out - in the sun however you can still see hints of red! Definitely not a good look!

3. Do you wear the same hair style everyday, or do you change it?
Hair styles are not my forte so for every day wear it's either ponytail or a big bun then curling or straightening it is as far as my expertise expand for a night out.

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
Being a beauty therapist has its perks, I can do my own mani/pedi and it not break the bank haha!

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
I change it quite regularly actually , as soon as it chips I'm on to a new colour, this is quite an annoyance as being a lover of acrylics/gels and often using colour in them I can't change them as easy as I could a polish!

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
I have done my toes in the winter for Christmas nights out or just out of boredum but I don't really change the colour whereas in the summer it's a constant change.

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
It actually varies , if I'm in a rush I could have the full whack on in 5 minutes, granted it not being perfect. But when I have the time half an hour to 45 minutes depending on the severity of the eye makeup, and also if I'm using a new product.

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
My face, I've tried recently to do my eyes first especially when doing a dark eye but I'm so much more comfortable doing my face first so always revert back to doing so.

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
Bit of both tbh, sometime I go on random hauls just for the sake of spending money (when I have it) and when I don't have money I only but products when I really need them.

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Not often at all anymore I used to wear them quite a lot but now I only wear them on nights out.

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
Yeah! Unless I'm giving my skin a break from makeup!

12. Do you wear makeup when you're home alone or with family?
Yip I do indeed, I think it's out of habit as I've worn makeup religiously since I was about 12 (and yes I still have good skin!)

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yip, I have done this more recently quite a lot after trying to give my skin a break - however, even when I go out with no makeup on, I don't count my eyebrows because I always do my brows even if I haven't done the rest of my makeup. 

14. How many high-end products do you have?
Literally not much at all. I could probably count on both hands how much high end products I own, I hope to expand this soon though! But having said that it's just goes to show you don't need to have high end products to achieve a good face of makeup!

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
It depends really, if I have plans then my outfit will get planned when I make the plans, if I don't have plans I just decide on the day what I'm wearing.

16. How often do you change your handbag?
I have one main bag thats black and big and holds everything I need it to so it's a very rare occasion when I change it. It also matches the majority of things I wear, if I do change it then its more than likely for a night out.

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
I'd like to say my sleep pattern is good, it's not haha! I go to sleep about 2am and wake up between 8.30 to 10am - how bad is that?! haha.

18. How often or when do you workout?
I don't really exercise, I don't drive so walk quite a lot and that's as good as it gets. I swim every now and again, and do the odd workout dvd when I'm feeling motivated (which isn't very often).

19. Left handed or right handed?
Right handed.

20. How tall are you?
5'4 and 3/4 ;)

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
I know basic French from High School but I can barely remember any of it.

22. How many pets do you have?
I have one hamster called Borris - it did have a partner in crime called Jimi but he passed away sadly!

23. How often are you on Blogger?
Daily (when possible) even if I'm not posting I'm reading away at blogs!

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
I do on my own blog but not really on other peoples blogs, I may read one or two if it's a post I'm also commenting on though.

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Yeah I started doing this recently. I now have a wee "blogging book" which has products to try out, blog ideas and just random notes I have jotted down! 

26. How did you come up with your blog name?
well my blog link - nataliecatherine is my first and middle names, the blog name at the top natalie's world is basically because I'm talking about things in my life that I like/enjoy/make me smile etc and that's as interesting as it gets haha.

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
I use my iphone as my camera broke a while ago so I've started with my iphone so hopefully I'll get a camera at Christmas time.

28. How often do you clean your house?
I tidy my room when I can be bothered but since it's my families house and not just mine we share the cleaning duties , I tend to polish and hoover daily.

29. What's your favorite color?

30. Do you swear?
Sometimes, not very often - mainly when I'm angry with someone.

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
I'm going to write another blog post which I will upload later in the week, then I'll chill as I have the cold.

Okay so that was quite a long questionnaire , but hopefully it helped you to get to know me a bit more - and for all of you that have taken the time to read this, assuming you have a beauty blog, I tag you to do this on your blog!

Love, Natalie xx

Top 5 Go To Lipsticks.

Okay, so I know I said I'd get back into blogging regularly again and as some of you may have noticed I haven't blogged since almost 2 weeks ago, but unfortunately there was a loss of a family member so I had no time to blog so hopefully you all understand! Anyway, lets get on to happier things...
Aka random blog post on my top 5 go to lipsticks. I've decided to do this blog post because I tend to get complimented on the lip colours that I use. During this blog I will let you know which is my "main" go to lipstick and which is my "least" go to out the 5 even though I wear them all quite regularly. I will also tell you the price/colour/make/texture and it's longevity.

Illamasqua - colour Scandal - £16.50
This was one of my first Illamasqua products purchased after I attended a master class at the Glasgow, St Enoch counter with a makeup artist called Mika, how buying this particular lipstick came about was I had my prom coming up and I was wearing a aqua coloured dress (see last blog post) and I had no idea which lip colour would go with this as I knew I wanted a brown/golden toned smokey eye and voila, I was introduced to "Scandal". I like this product but it's very matte and even put it on is quite tough on the lips I think however, once blended with a lip brush it looks amazing and is a very summery coral colour! I'd say as much as I love this colour however it's one out of 2 that I am least likely to wear just as I find it dries my lips out quite a bit and after a short period of time makes my lips appear patchy.

Maybeline Color Sensational - colour Midnight Plum - £7.19
This is my every day lipstick, I don't see a lot of people where I stay try a purple lip regularly but it's one I rock daily, I would actually go as far to say that a purple/plum lip is my signature look. Using this lipstick the most it's always one I go back to as this is the nicest plum colour that I have found which lasts a good while before I need to top up. It's very soft on the lips, creamy textured and has a slight shimmer in it - although it's a strong colour it's not too strong and could be pulled off by anyone willing to try it I think.

M.A.C - colour Nicki Minaj Viva Glam (1) - £ 15
In this picture the lipstick looks orange, do NOT be mistaken it's pink!! It has the slightest orange undertone but if you know who Nicki Minaj is you'd know this was a pink anyway cause she's all about her pink lipstick! I'm unsure whether to say unfortunately here.. as this product is Limited Edition, however I bought this last year maybe? and it's still available to buy. Anyway this product is silky smooth on your lips, a very cream based product and also very bright for all those who want to stand out like Nicki! Also a good thing about this product is that a small donation from each purchase goes to charity. The product doesn't last too long on the lips though and transfers on to cups/cans/glasses etc quite a bit.

Barry M - colour No62 - £4.49
So although the previous colour was bright nothing beats this Barry M colour, again the picture doesn't do it justice (I really need to invest in a good camera as I'm currently using my iphone). It definitely is a serious eye catcher and is one you'd wear if you wanted to be noticed hence why it, alongside the Illamasqua lipstick is one of the ones I wear the least - as you can tell I like to stand out with my lip colour however, this one I wear on nights out where I wear an LBD as it gives it a dash of colour. It, like the M.A.C lipstick is seriously creamy and leaves your lips feeling super moisturised. Another good thing about the Barry M lipsticks is that there is several colours in the range and don't break the bank! Again this product transfers really easily being so creamy but I would say this lasts longer than the M.A.C one before a top up is needed.

Avon - colour Plum Gorgeous - price unknown
This was my first plum lipstick which I found from the Avon catalogue (unsure if this is just a British thing but anyway for those who don't know it's like a cosmetics/bits and bobs catalogue). I couldn't find any nice plum colours and to begin with didn't really want to go to severe anyway and this lipstick was great for that as it has a champagne colour mixed in with the plum. Again this products moisturising on the lips and randomly smells quite "cherry" like (random for being a plum colour) and although I can't remember the price it wouldn't have been any more than £5 being from Avon no doubt. Perfect for a plum pout for those just starting off! And surprisingly for being most likely the cheapest product in the bunch it lasts a great deal on my lips longer than any of the dearer priced lipsticks do (minus the Maybeline lipstick).

Swatches of all lipsticks mentioned in this blog.

Hope you enjoyed this post,
- remember all feedback is welcomed and any blog posts you'd like me to do you can let me know in the comments.

Recreating my prom makeup.

Before I took my short unexpected break from blogging this was supposed to be my next blog but I never got round to it. The first picture you will see is of me before setting off to my college prom in June, the next two pictures will be of my recreation of that look and then I'll go on to tell you which products I used and the order I used them in.

 me on my prom night.

Just a heads up for when I post my pictures of my makeup recreation, I have not waxed my eyebrows as I'm trying to grow them in thicker to get HD Brows and I am not wearing eyelashes like I did on my prom night as I thought it would be a waste of eyelashes and rather time consuming for a recreation blog especially when they are individual lashes, I will however attach a picture of the lashes I used on my prom night at the end of this blog. I was also wearing tan on the night of my prom and used two foundations to get the perfect colour and in the recreation I have no tan on so I'm only wearing the lighter of the two shades which I willl explain which is which when I upload the picture of which foundations I did use.


What I Used:
The brushes which I used to get the look - Royal & Langnickel S.I.L.K PRO
(left to right) Foundation C200 , Concealer C210 , Powder C100 , Contour C120
Blush C110 , Eye Shader MD C410 , Smudger C420 , Angle Eye Blender C460 , Eyebrow C490
Also I have no idea how much my brush set cost as my mum bought it for me.

The Order:
MAC Studio Fix Fluid - colour NW18 - £21.50
Wake Me Up Rimmel Foundation - colour 100 Ivory - £7.30
These are the foundations which I combined to create my prom look, in the recreation of it however I only used the Wake Me Up Rimmel Foundation as with no tan on this suited perfectly to my skin tone. I applied this with the Royal & Langnickel foundation C200 to my full face of course and since it matched perfectly I didn't need to take it down my neck.

This is the concealer palette which I used, it has no name but it's from ebay and cost me roughly £12. The colour I used to cover up any blemishes/dark circles was the middle colour on the middle row, so the third one in on the second line. This palette is perfect for anyone I think as it has various colours and you can also highlight and contour with it. The brush I used to apply it was the Concealer C210 and then just used my finger tip to push it in and blend it.

Fake Bake Bronzer - only comes in the one colour - £15
When applying this well used product I used my Powder C100 brush and literally used the smallest amount as I was going back to use this product as a contour powder under my jaw bone, cheek bone and on my temples and to do this I used Contour C120 brush.

Eyeshadow Palette (well half of it) has no name - ebay (unsure of price)
This looks in really bad condition but there is a reason for this my friend dropped it out her locker when I was at college just days after getting it and half of the colours broke away (sad face) but all is good! The colours I used in this palette were the colour top left, third in for highlighting my brow bone, bottom row third colour in from the left for my base colour both which I applied with Smudger C420. I then applied the colour on the bottom row, fourth in from the right with Eye Angle Blender C460 in a C shape from the corner of the eye up into the crease and slightly above the crease. I then used the Eye Shader MD C410 to press in the colour on the second row from the bottom, third colour in from the right into the lid, turned the brush around and went back to blend in. I then used the Eyebrow C490 to put in black eyeliner on my upper and lower lash line adding a small flick to to outer corners.

Jane Iredale Bitty Brow Kit - colour Brunette - £20
This product only comes in two colours Brunette and Blonde, it comes with 3 brushes and a small wax and lasts absolutely ages so you definitely get your moneys worth. I tend to shadow my eyebrows in quite thick and square them of and this is perfect for doing that, however you can also keep your brows as subtle as you want with this as it's a mineral product and I tend to build it up to get the look I desire.

Laura Geller Blush 'N' Brighten - colour Pink Buttercream - price unknown
The reason I don't know the price of this product is because I pinched it off my mum upon googling it it's roughly £20 but I'm not certain as I couldn't find the product for sale on it's own. On applying this product I didn't add a highlighter as it's two-tone so I feel it does that job for me. I applied this product with the Blush C110 brush.

Illamasqua Lipstick - colour Scandal - £16.50
The lipstick which I used was this Illamasqua one which appears to be a more redy/pink colour in this picture but it's a coral so it's really an orangey/pink also I just applied it using the actual stick and not a brush as I'm only using it on myself. 

"Medium" Salon System Individual Eyelashes - colour Black - £3.55
I applied a full pack of these lashes as I like to have my lashes thick and full.  I applied them with tweezers and Ardell Clear Adehsive for Individual Lashes which cost me £3.19. You can also get these lashes in Long and Short and they come in Brown as well.

Hope you enjoyed this post,
