There is something I absolutely love about daisies. They are so pretty and instantly make me think of spring. Thats why I find myself loving this time of year as daisy and floral prints end up on literally everything. I have put together a list of my favourite daisy things at the moment as there are some pretty good bits around!

I have had this eyeliner for absolutely ages, in fact I brought it when I got the pitch black version so that was back in January..whoopsie! It has been sitting in my drawer for so long waiting to be used. As the nib is so bright, I thought it was a bit bold for everyday and have been waiting for an occasion to use it. When I swatched it, it wasn't as scary as I thought it was going to be and tended to have more of a muted tone.
As with Pitch Black, I really like the style of this but do tend to use it more straight on than at an angle like they should be. I think this is just down to habit though, as its easier to get a flick this way.
The colour is nowhere near as bold as I first thought, more of a muted gold which turns to a very pale shimmer in some lights. You really need to push hard or layer this up to get even a slight hint of colour which is a bit hard especially if you are using it sideways. This disappointed me slightly, especially as I had such high hopes after using the black version and finding how pigmented it was.
I have been using it more as an eyeshadow, colouring in the lid and then layering on top and I found for that it works perfectly, so all is not lost. I just feel if you are looking for quite a bright gold eyeliner though, you may be slightly disappointed. ♥

I spent last week looking after my lovely nieces whilst my mum and dad have been on holiday. Honestly babysitting a 10 month old and a 5 year old after school is so stressful ha! I really don't know how you mummy's have enough energy to do anything when looking after children, by the time they left I was drained and covered in baby food...lovely!
When Thursday came around me and Lewis decided we should have a little us time and take a trip to the zoo. I must admit I am like a little kid when it comes to the zoo, I walk around with the cheesiest grin on my face looking at all of the animals. Luckily I live about half and hour away from Whipsnade Zoo so thought we would take a trip there. The weather wasn't too bad, but a lot of the animals decided not to show their faces which was a bit of a shame, but the ones I did see were beautiful.
Spot the chimp!
Me and Lewis always see ducks wherever we go and always have a bit of a joke that it's me and him in duck form.
I aways think of The Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland when I see Flamingos. Yes I did sing 'painting the roses red..'
How cute is this giraffe?!
I do love meerkats and think they should all be called Aleksandr.
