How To : Watermelon Nail Art

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re all well :)

So I have officially broken up for Summer now, which is great because I love having time off school and being able to do what I want. My last day was so fun, and on the weekend I performed in the West End as some of you may know, and that went brilliantly and was a lotta fun!

When Summer starts, there’s one thing on my mind; paint my nails. Summer is the time where I try out lots of nail art, so I’m warning you now that there will be a lot of nail art on my blog in the upcoming months!

This particular design I had seen a lot of, and I really love watermelon so I thought why not do a nail art tutorial on them?! :)

Here’s a picture of how they look:

How To Achieve The Look:

1. After using a basecoat, paint a bright red/pink colour on your nails. I chose this one from Barry M which is called Coral.

2. Now take a green nail polish and paint a thick strip to create the skin.IMG_1350

3. Once the green is dry, splash a lighter green on top of it to make it look more realistic.IMG_1352

4. Lastly, draw some black dots on the red to create the seeds and seal everything in place with a topcoat.

Tadaa! Simple and quick Watermelon nails that anyone can do! I think these are so funky, I love them :)

What do you think about Watermelon Nails?

I hope you try this out, if you do send me a picture on Twitter (@kavichick2000)

OOTD- Chic and Stripy

Hello there cutie pies! I hope you’re all well :)

Now I’m sure this upcoming Summer is going to be filled with Outfit Of The Day posts, which is great as recently I’ve been obsessed with buying new clothes! Do you guys like me doing OOTD’s?

This outfit is a different choice for me. The stripes add a sense of classiness and gives off some French vibes but the ripped jeans add a slight grunginess to the look. It’s such a perfect outfit for a casual, relaxed day, maybe when it’s a cooler summer’s day! Even though the top is long sleeved it’s super lightweight and will suit pretty much any figure.

Even though this outfit is super simple, I like it because sometimes less is more.

What do you think about this outfit, would you wear it?

25 Things I Want To Do This Summer

Hey lovelies! Today I have decided to write up a post about 25 things I want to do this Summer. Summer officially starts in 5 days for me, so I decided instead of wasting my time in bed and on my phone or laptop, I would actually do things this summer! I’ve seen many people do this post and I will link my favourites at the end of this post, so do check them out too!

If you have a Summer Bucket List please send me links, I would love to read it!

Untitled

1. Watch A New TV Series – Okay so this defeats the whole ‘Get off your laptop’ thing but honestly, TV series are the best! I’ve heard that Orange Is The New Black is really good, so maybe I should try that? Leave suggestions in the comments!

2. Go To A Blogger Meet Up – I so badly want to go to one and meet all my blogging besties! Hopefully Maisie will be hosting one so I am excited for that :)

3. Meet Maisie – If you don’t read Maisie’s blog you are missing out big time, it’s amazing! It feels like we’ve been friends forever but now I seriously need to meet her in real life.

4. Get A Henna Tattoo – I love henna tattoos so much, I’ve had them many of times before but I never get bored of them.

5. Go On A Theme Park Ride I’d Never Go On- I’ve kind of already done this, but if I go to a theme park again this Summer I’ll definitely be a bit more daring with rides.

6. Volunteer For Something – Volunteering is good, and I really want to do something even if I don’t get paid.

7. Raise Money For Charity – This could mean doing a cake sale or doing a run (which does not sound like me) but even if it’s £5 for charity, that’d be amazing.

 8. Become A YouTuber – I’ve tried this before but I couldn’t commit to it, but with six weeks on my hands I have enough time to become one! Would you guys be interested in this?

9. Have A Mother/Daughter Spa Day – This would be so cute and who doesn’t love a good old pamper session? ;)

10. Go Shopping In Westfields – I’ve never been before but it sounds like heaven. Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Victorias Secret. Exactly what a girl who loves shopping needs.

11. Try A New Fruit - Summer has completely different fruits compared to the rest of the year, so I’d love to try something exciting like Star Fruit or Guava.

12. Draw More Often – I really like art, especially drawing but I never do enough of it so maybe I’ll start that hobby up again.

13. Have a BBQ - I enjoy barbecues, even though I’m a veggie I still think they’re really cool!

14. Do Yoga On The Beach – A bit of a daring one but I think this would be so relaxing and I would enjoy it so much.

15. Go To See Someone Perform Live – I don’t mind who I see, but I would really like to go to a gig/concert as I’ve only been to one and I loved it!

16. Spend A Day In London – London is so exciting and there’s so many places to go to and places to shop, not even going to mention how much food is there… ;)

17. Fly A Kite – Sounds simple and it is, but I’m sure this would be lovely to do if I could manage to do it.

18. Go Roller Skating – Quite achievable as my whole family loves roller skating! It;s a great form of exercise because it’s so so fun.

19. Do Something Crazy With My Hair – I might colour it in with chalks, chop off an inch, go a few shades lighter or get a fringe. If I don’t like it, I will have long enough to get it back to normal.

20. Organise A Clothes Swap – These look so cool, and I love so many different kinds of clothes so I’d do brilliant in this :)

21. Have A Day Without The Internet – SHOCK, HORROR! Yes, to anyone who knows me, it is right I am going to do this challenge however absurd it may sound to you.

22. Earn Money – Whether I start working for someone or selling my stuff, I really want to earn some money to contribute to my future shopping trips.

23. Camp In A Garden - This seems so fun as long as I’m with other people! If I was by myself I’d get so freaked out by everything.

24. Spend A Whole Day At The Beach – I love the seaside wherever in the world it is, so I’m looking forward to this day!

25. Light Sparklers With Friends At Night – I used to love doing this when I was younger, so why not do it now?!

So that is everything on my Summer Bucket List! I actually have 50 things but these are the ones I think you guys will find interesting.

What do you want to do this Summer?

Life Update|Birthday and West End Show

Hello lovelies! It feels like forever since I’ve sat down and written a post talking about life and things that have been happening- instead I’ve been replacing it with the trusty “I’ve had a busy week” and whilst that has been true, there are some other reasons. 

So every weekend I have been practising for a show I am performing in at the West End, which is incredibly exciting!! However, this means most of my weekends are taken up with rehearsals, so by the end I’m very tired and don’t want to do much. This weekend both Saturday and Sunday are going to be filled with rehearsals, as the weekend after will be the show, which is at Drury Lane! 

Some of you will have known it was my birthday on July 1st, so I was also busy celebrating that. I went out with all my best friends to see The Fault In Our Stars (which was amazing may I add) and then for a meal at Pizza Hut. On the Tuesday of my birthday, I had school but then I was surprised with a visit from my cousins, who live in Hong Kong! Then one of my best friends turned up at my doorstep with a homemade cupcake and presents so that was very nice :) After Nando’s I was greeted with a batch of The. Best. Brownies. In. The. World. from Anna, which were patiently waiting for me to eat on my doormat. 

I will have a birthday haul coming up soon but thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday or got me a present, I truly appreciate it!

On Wednesday I was busy playing football all day as a school competition, but that resulted in aching legs for a few days as I was nowhere near used to that amount of exercise, oops! Then on Thursday I went to Thorpe Park and I went on Stealth (a ride that shoots up 205feet high into the sky and is over within 20 seconds). I thought it was very important to tell you that I went on this ride as I am NOT a rides person in the slightest.

Otherwise, I haven’t been in the mood to blog if I’m honest with you. I didn’t know what to post about and I didn’t want to post because I have to, I like to blog because I enjoy it! I hope you understand that :)

Anyway, that’s basically my life update! I should be bombarding you with posts from now onwards, as we officially break up for summer in two weeks, so be prepared and make sure you are following ;)

If there’s any posts you want to see from me, please let me know! And would you like to see a What I Got For My Birthday Post? 

I hope you’re all well and thank you for reading!

Glamorous Gold & Black Smokey Eye Look

Hello lovelies! I hope you’re all well :)
I’m sorry I didn’t post throughout the week, I’ve had final exams and then I went out with all my friends on Friday to see The Fault In My Stars, to celebrate my birthday (which is on Tuesday 1st July if you were wondering). The movie was great, and it definitely brought some tears to my eyes! Have you seen it?
Anyway today I went to my cousins 18th get together and decided to be a bit more creative with my make up. I opted for a gold and black smokey eye and wanted to tell you what I did. Let’s begin!
I decided to prime and even out my eyelids by using MAC’s Soft Ochre Paint Pot.
I then pushed a black eyeshadow from the MUA Undressed Palette into the outer corner of my eye and moved it ever so slightly into the crease. The key here is to keep building the colour up. You can always add more but you can’t take away.
I made the look appear softer and more blended by using a matte brown eyeshadow above the crease. For this I actually used the contour in my Sleek Contour Kit as it worked considerably well.
Then I used a white shimmery eyeshadow in the inner corner and first third of my eye. The one it chose is in the Milani Catwalk Palette.
After applying the white I chose a beautiful gold. I chose to use MAC woodwinked with a shimmery gold washed lightly over the top. I then made sure everything was really well blended, and went on to apply eyeliner. I created a small subtle wing and the applied a pencil liner in my waterline.
Lastly I finished the look off by applying a generous coating of Maybelline The Falsies Mascara, which I only just purchased- and so far I’m loving it! :)
So that’s how I achieved this look, but I’m sure you want to see a few pictures now?

So, what do you think of this look? I’m sorry the photos aren’t great, the lighting just wasn’t agreeing with me today! It looks much better in person I promise.
I hope you liked this post. Do you ever brave a smokey eye?

The Lip Product Addict Tag

Hello lovelies! I hope you’re all well and happy it’s Friday, I know I am! :)
For today’s post I am going to be doing The Lip Product Addict Tag, which I have seen going around a lot lately in the beauty world and I absolutely love reading other peoples takes on the tag, so when I was tagged by Jaclyn from http://thelittlescottishcorner.com/and Tarika from http://cherryblossom15.wordpress.com/I was delighted and couldn’t wait to do it! Do check out their posts and blogs because they are both lovely and have brilliant blogs.IMG_1270
If you have done this tag please do link me up as I would love to read it!
Let’s get on with the tag :)
1. Favourite Balm/Treatment
IMG_1250
If I am an addict of any beauty product, it has to be for lip balm. I think Burts Bees do a lovely one (mango is the best scent) but the two products I have chosen are Elemis Minty Moisture Lip Balm* and the Dr Lipp Nipple Balm. The Elemis one is amazing and it tingles your lips, which is a great feeling! The Dr Lipp one is super intense and hydrating, a little sticky at first but that goes after a while.
2. Best Eye-catching red
IMG_1255IMG_1258
Red lipsticks just don’t click with me, which is annoying as I would love to rock one. However, this MUA Lipstick in shade 1* is a super vampy, bold red and it’s super creamy. I won this a while back from Rachel, who writes the blog CatchAnEye – thank you so much!
I also have this lipgloss from Bourjois in the shade Rouge Democratic which is lovely, smells amazing, not too sticky and is super pigmented. I definitely need to pick up some more of these!
3. Best Luxury & Best Drugstore
IMG_1266
Ooh, I love YSL Lipsticks, they look so gorgeous!! I have a few on my wishlist and with my birthday coming up, what better to ask for ;) YSL do a lipstain that I’ve swatched multiple times in store, which is very similar to the L’oreal one, which I reviewed here.
4. Best MAC Lipstick
This would definitely be MAC Rebel, which I don’t currently own but every single time I go into MAC I make sure to swatch it, it’s stunning! I can’t wait to purchase this.
5. The Most Disappointing
IMG_1259
Like Tarika, this would definitely have to be the Rimmel Apocolips! I know a lot of people are in love with these, but I hate the texture and the scent is simply disgusting. If you like these though, I am selling Nude Eclispe in my Blog Sale if you want to buy it!
6. Liner – yes or no?
IMG_1264
Yes! I don’t always wear it but whenever I do I feel like the pouting queen! ;) Hehe! It makes my lips look bigger and more shaped, so it’s win win all the way!
7. Best Gloss
IMG_1260
I’m not a huge fan of lipgloss but the Barry M ones are brilliant, smell amazing and are not sticky at all. See my review on them all here.
8. Something Extra
I know us beauty bloggers are a massive fan of lip crayons, and so am I! I really want to try out the matte range from Revlon, but for now I love this one called Rendezvous, which is bright orange- so perfect for the summer!
That’s all the questions! I love this tag and thank you girls for tagging me!
I would like to tag:
And of course anyone else who wants to do it! :)
