I <3 Summer Tag

I'm finally back guys! I know that I've not posted for about a month and a half now and I do feel bad about it because I originally said that I was just having a few weeks off whilst I did my exams. However, once I'd done my exams I really just wanted to relax for a week or so without having to do anything so I thought that I'd have another week off. I was fully intending to start blogging again a couple of weeks ago but I've just not felt like it and I didn't know what to post so I thought that rather than make myself do something that I didn't want to and produce posts that I wasn't happy with I thought I'd wait until I felt like blogging again so that I didn't start seeing this blog as a chore.
So, after that ramble, I'm back today with the I <3 Summer Tag to ease me back into blogging after I saw it on Ingrid's (MissGlamorazzi) YouTube channel.
1. Favourite bronzer for summer?
I'm not really that into bronzers but the one I'm using at the minute is the Natural Collection Suntint Bronzing Powder (Currently on 3 for £5 at Boots)
2. You're relaxing in a hammock, on a tropical island. What are you sipping on? (Favourite summer drink?)
Anything cold and refreshing! Probably flavoured water or Apple juice.
3. Favourite Summer Lip Product?
I love the Blistex Lip Brilliance Blushing because it contains SPF15 and adds colour to the lips as well as being mega moisturising. A bargain for £2.61 at Boots if you ask me! 
4. Pool or Beach?
Tough one, I love relaxing at the beach and going in the sea but I also love swimming in pools. I'd probably say beach so long as the sea was fairly clean!
5. Summer = Crazy hair! Must-have styling product?
My VO5 Smoothly Does It Tame & Shine Spray which also contains heat defence (not sure if this is still available or not as I couldn't find it on either the Boots or the Superdrug website). Although, to be fair I prefer to not use too much on my hair and just put it up instead.
6. Sunbathing or fake tan?
Sunbathing because it gives me chance to relax at the same time.
7. Favourite summer nail polish?
I tend to wear a lot of different nail polishes in summer but I love wearing Rimmel 60 Second Nail Polish in Shocker, especially on my toes (Boots)
8. Any summer traditions?
Not really apart from the fact that me and my parents always go on holiday at about the exact same time every year and we always go to Norfolk.
9. Favourite Summer Scent?
It tends to change every year but always something light and fruity or floral. This year I'm loving Avon's Make Me Smile which is fresh lemony, limey scent which sounds a bit weird but smells amazing.
10. Favourite BBQ food?
A good old beef burger with onion, cheese and burger sauce!
11. What's your favourite summer-proof product?
This year its my Avon Ideal Flawless Light Foundation (Currently half-price for a £5! Bargain!)
12. Any summer vacation plans this year? No plans? Tell us about your dream summer trip!
I'm going to Hunstanton with my parents. My dream summer trip would be somewhere like Spain or Greece.
I've really enjoyed writing this blog post. It's good to be back! Hope you've enjoyed it and have a good day. I should be getting back to my once a week posting (although I may miss the one week when I'm on holiday if I don't have Wi-Fi. Which I'm praying we do!) I tag all of you guys to do this tag and if you do, let me know in the comments so that I can check it out. 
Much love,

Sorry that posts have been a bit sparse recently, its just that I'm doing my exams so have been busy revising. I'll try and get back to normal as soon as I can. So, today I thought I'd do a post on exercise which was one of my new years resolutions. I was doing well with this until I had a week or two off over Easter because I didn't have much time and couldn't really be all that bothered. Since then I've not been eating all that healthily or doing much exercise, I've really struggled to get back on track. So, I thought I'd do a bit of a motivation post because when I put my new years resolutions post up a few of you said that you were trying to do more exercise as well.

All images from Fresh, Clean, Fit! Tumblr:
These are a few of my favourite fitness, motivation quotes. There are a lot more that pop up on my Tumblr dashboard that I love but I thought that I'd keep it to four otherwise this blogpost would be far too long!
I thought I'd also share a few of my favourite workouts with you as well:

These are my two favourite workouts because they are so simple and easy to do, you don't need anything and you can do them anywhere at any time. I also like doing Cassie for Blogilates workouts (Blog: YouTube: and following the Tone It Up (Blog: YouTube: girls workouts and the series they do.
I hope that you all liked this post and that it was helpful to a few of you. I think that I'll do a similar post on Healthy Eating soon as well if you want it. I know this post was quite long but I hope you like it! Let me know in the comments if there are any posts that you want me to do.

Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama Mascara Review

So, today I thought I'd do a review of my new favourite mascara, Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama. I 'd seen a lot of reviews of this mascara and Tanya Burr always raves about it so I thought I'd go out and buy it because I needed a new mascara. I really like this mascara. I only need one coat of this and my lashes are done whereas with my old mascara I needed a few coats. This goes on really nicely and makes your lashes really long and thick without them going clumpy. I think its especially great because of the price (£7.99) as I've tried other mascaras that have been about the same price and they've been nowhere near as good.
The only negatives to this mascara are that it tends to flake if you have it on all day but it usually lasts until I get in from school so I'm not really that bothered it also tends to smudge all around your eyes if you ever cry whilst you're wearing it. On the whole, I really like this mascara and will definitely repurchase it in the future. Have you guys ever tried it? What did you think? Let me know in the comments if there are any blog posts that you want me to do as always.
Much love,
