4. Snacks

Ok, I love snacks they may be my favourite things ever!

Recently I have been trying to be healthier so I have been constantly looking for new snacks to try that are healthy. And then I found 'Graze'!

Graze is amazing, they send you a box each week which contains a collection of different snacks and they are delicious! I absolutely love their snacks. I usually order the chocolate box which is a bit cheeky but it is so delicious. They have loads of different boxes, including the variety box, the light box (which only contains snacks under 150 calories), the chocolate box (my fave) and the kids box!

I would definitely recommend looking at their website, they aren't too expensive at £3.99 a box but are definitely worth it! They usually have a half price offer for new customers which means that you can get your first graze box half price!

This is what I got in my graze box this week:
1. Caramel & Peanut Track & Field
This is one of my favourites but it is still really nice. In a pack you get salted peanuts, redskin peanuts, vanilla fudge and mini chocolate cookies. The cookies and vanilla fudge in this are amazing - they taste so good!
2. Salted Fudge and Peanut Cookie
This is amazing! There are slated caramel milk chocolate buttons. Ok, take a minute to appreciate that, milk chocolate buttons filled with salted caramel. This is literally a dream come true! In this box there are also peanuts, fudge and raisins. Amazing! I love this pack I am eating it now whilst I type this :)
3. Honeycomb Flapjack
Ok, I don't usually like flapjacks but these are amazing. They are oat flapjacks with a chocolate and honeycomb drizzle on top. Genius!
4. Jaffa Cake
This is one of my all time favourites! you get Belgian dark chocolate, orange raisins and roasted hazelnuts. I got just keep on eating this forever!
5. Almonds
Ok, this isn't from graze but I have been really enjoying eating almonds as a quick snack recently. They are pretty healthy and they taste so good!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post!

3. Everyday makeup essentials

So, today I thought it would be fun to just talk through some of my everyday beauty essentials!
1. Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer
Whenever I do my make-up I always start with concealer, it just helps to cover all the blemishes and spots I have and makes the dark circles under my eyes disappear! I love this concealer it makes my eyes a lot brighter and it has good coverage. I have it in the shade 'True Ivory' and I find that it is a great match for my skin tone.
2. Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder
When I do everyday make-up I don't really use use foundation as I find it is a bit time consuming and is a bit heavy, so I usually end up just using powder. I find this makes my face look less shiny and it helps to blend in my concealer. I use powder as it gives a very natural look and it only takes me about 10 seconds to apply! And in the morning I never have enough time, so being able to apply this so quickly is a godsend!
3. Bourjois Blusher
I love this blusher it just looks really nice with my skin tone, I have it in the shade 74 rose ambre, which I love! I use it to contour on my cheeks and it gives a really subtle rosy colour, which just looks so nice!
4. Bourjois Eye Pearls
In my everyday make-up I would use the bourjois eye pearls eye shadow. I'm not really sure what colour this is but it is a range of different purples and pinks. I think that the selection of colours you get is great as there is one for every occasion, a shimmer, a bold shade, a base colour. I absolutely love these eye shadows!
5.Soap and Glory Supercat Eyeliner
I love this eyeliner, it is super easy to apply and it lasts for ages, which I love! Unfortunately, it isn't waterproof which is a shame because I love this eyeliner and I would wear it every day if it was waterproof.
6. Rimmel London Scandal eyes mascara
I love this mascara, it isn't too pricey which is great and it makes my eyelashes look really full and long which only one flick of the wand! I would recommend this mascara the Rimmel London wonderful (or something like that, it contains argon oil) and the Chanel waterproof mascara. These are all really nice and worth buying!

7. Nivea Milk and Honey Lip balm / Maybelline Baby Lips
I love my Nivea lip balm, I have it in milk and honey and it makes my lips feel so soft and moisturised and it smells amazing too! I could eat it! If I want more of a colour on my lips I would use my Baby Lips, I have this in the shade 'Pink Punch' and it looks really good (as long as you don't apply too much)!

So, these are my makeup essentials! This is what I would usually wear to school (minus the eyeliner)!
I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know what else you would include in your makeup essentials in the comments below :)
