4 Websites I Used To Love

I was thinking about this the other day and thought that it would be something different to post about. When I was about 6 or 7, I remember going onto my Dads desktop computer and simply going online to play games. I'm talking about before Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and even MSN and Bebo, I used to love playing games online, like girly games. So I am going to share the 4 games (was going to be 5 but couldn't thing of another one) and websites that I just loved.

Stardoll Paperdoll Heaven 
I am so disappointed that this website does not exist how it used to exist. I loved both sides of the website, from dressing up famous celebrities (I even remember when Bieber was added which must have been 2010) to having your own 'doll' with your house, clothes and makeup. I could literally spend hours on this website. One of my favourite things was redecorating the house and then getting your doll all fancy and getting loads of points so you could be on the magazine. Oh how I miss this website. The most annoying thing is, you can't even log in again to see your doll.

Build a Bear 
Okay admittedly not my favourite but once I got the hang off it (it really was simple), it was great fun. I loved the fact that it was like a little village and you could wonder around and go into different shops and places. The bear would be exactly the same as the one you just made in the store IRL. It was just fun.

This one was the first ever website that I ever became a member of. The said thing is I still remember my password for it and it has to be a good 13 to 14 years since I first went on the website. For me personally I just loved the games, like the love capability game and there was another game that I loved but I honestly can't remember it for the life of me.

Now I am talking mainly Suite Life of Zack and Cody. I was obsessed with that game, and I wish it was still online because I would still be playing it to this day. There were other games that I used to love on the website as well, I think there was possibly a Hannah Montana game as well but I am not totally sure.

So that was my four websites that I used to loved as a child and probably would still love today if they were still going. Are yours similar to mine, or what other websites did you used to love?

Chloe Love Story

A little over six months ago, when I was waiting in Gatwick Airport for my flight to Italy with my parents, I was just wondering around duty free when I feel in love with the smell of Chloe Love Story. However, I didn't get it. The same thing happened when I was in Italy, a small perfume and beauty shop had the same perfume, (but was do much cheaper than here in the UK) and still didn't get it. My parents remember that I really like the smell of the perfume, well actually I threw in some helpful reminders, and they brought me the gift set for christmas. 

The perfume is quite strong, but I am useless at describing the scents of perfumes so here is what Boots described it as:
'Love Story is the marriage of luminous and sensual orange blossom with stephanotis jasmine, the flower of happiness. A sexy, clean floral fragrance. Love Story is a memorable fragrance with true personality.'

At the moment this is one of my go to scents. I actually prefer to wear it during the day rather in the evening but I just feel that it is such a lovely perfume that you can honestly wear it at any time of the day.

Plus, this perfume looks so gorgeous on my shelves at university, it is just so pleasing to look at.

You can buy Love Story from Boots, The Perfume Shop and Debenhams.

A Mini MAC Haul

A couple of weeks ago I went to London for my mums birthday and I happened to pop into the MAC store in Covent Garden. I kinda planned to go in there anyway, as I had a gift card, and when buying make up I like to buy it in person rather than ordering online, especially with lipsticks.

I only picked up two products and both of which are lipsticks and are both matt lipsticks. However, they are both very different colours, for a change. The first lipstick I picked up is something slightly out of my comfort zone but was one that was on my wish list is, 'D for Danger'. D for Danger is what MAC describes as a 'brick red'. I only own one other red lipstick from MAC as I normally only stick to the pinky/nudes. I am yet to actually wear this lipstick, but there maybe a review of this in the near future. 

The next lipstick I brought was one that is fairly hyped up, which is 'Mehr'. Yet again this was also on my wish list, but I wasn't out to look for it. I don't know if this ever happen to you in MAC as well, you see a lipstick that you like and pick it and then look at the name and it is actually the one you want. Well that happened to me. I have really been loving this shade. It is quite long lasting and if you build it up, it can create quite a bold lip as well.

My Current Go-To Lipsticks

Does anyone else feel undressed with no lipstick on? Well, thats me. If I leave the house with no lipstick on, I feel incomplete and then it will just bug me for the rest of the day until I can get my hands on a lipstick and pop it on. At the moment I have had a thing for three lipsticks: MAC Velvet Teddy, MAC Fast Play and L'oreal 376. Honestly, I don't thing I have worn hardly any other shade this month (although Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks have popped up a few times and the odd Tanya Burr lipgloss as well).

Velvet Teddy is a fairly new addition to my MAC collection of lipsticks, I got it just before christmas and I've probably worn it over 20 times since I purchased it (well actually my mum did, so thank you mum!)  I can understand why people hype about it so much. For me its the perfect 'your lips but better shade', although sometimes I like to wear a gloss over the top to just give it a little something else. The only thing I do find is that I find myself reapplying it a few times during the day, but apart from that I love it. 

Next up is MAC Fast Play. I actually did a post about this lipstick a while back now (check it out here), at the beginning I was a bit like I don't know if I like this or not, but I then got back into it after watching one of Lilly Pebbles videos where I think she was wearing it or at least talking about it. Since then I have re fallen in love with this lipstick. It is darker than Velvet teddy, but I still really love it. 

Finally is the one that goes off the trail from my normal nude colour lipsticks, and is 376 from L'oreal. Now it is no secret that I love L'oreal lipsticks, in fact the brand is one of my favourite drugstore products from their lipsticks.  It is almost a red but with purple undertones and it really is easy to wear. The only thing I would say that I don't like is that it kinda goes a bit everywhere but as long as you look in a mirror you are fine. 

There you have it, my current go to lipsticks. Do you have any go to lipsticks at the moment?
