Firstly, hello to all the new Superdrug Summer Insiders! (Apart from Rosanna, hiya I know you haha) I’m Hollie, 21 from Warrington.
I’ve just finished my second year of university in Manchester where I study Photography. So I’m free as a bird for Summer!
A few pointers for what I’ve got planned:
- Beach Break Live festival in South Wales with my best friend Emily next week. I secured a photopass so I get to photograph all the acts and go backstage etc. Very exciting. Just might be cutting it in the wild world that is music photography!
- In 18 days I’m off to Tokyo, Japan with my boyfriend. SO ridiculously excited. I live and breathe Hello Kitty and Tokyo fashion, its beautiful and I can’t wait to sample the japanese life myself and photograph all its amazingness!
- I’m in the process of sorting out a little camping holiday to St Ives/Newquay with my boyfriend. We had the best time last summer which needs to be experienced again.
Apart from that, I’m going to have a lazy, chilled out summer hopefully soaking up the british sun. Fingers Crossed.
A few weeks ago Superdrug sent me a lovely package which I had yet to review because I was so busy and my mind seemed to be elsewhere. Here are the goodies…
Lovely bag filled with Simple goodies.
Sweet products! Amazing for sensitive skin like mine, not too perfumed and make my skin very soft. Excellent!
And the best bit – L’Oreal Volume Million lashes and Glam Shine lip gloss in Cerise.
I have to be honest, I wasn’t too keen on the Volume Million lashes at first. It promised to make my lashes look really thick, but at first it just made them all clumpy and hard. Upon applicating the mascara to my lashes a couple more times in the duration of a few days, my lashes seemed to benefit and I was sporting some very fluttering, thick lashes! Practice makes perfect I guess. It’s one of those mascaras that you buy and never look back. I tried using an old Max Factor mascara against it and I could really tell the difference. Hurrah L’Oreal you proved me wrong!
In other news, it was my 21st birthday last week and I had an action packed week. I went to Alton Towers on my actual birthday with my family which was amazing. I conquered my fear of vertical drop rides by going on Oblivion, and I’m so glad I did! It lasted a mere 10 seconds or so, but the thrill of it was incredible. My heart was literally in my mouth! Then on the Saturday I gathered all my friends to my house for champagne and nibbles then the limo arrived and took us to Liverpool for a night out. Such a night to remember
I’m in the middle with the black and white dress and red heels! Rosie is next to me in the black floral dress!
To top off my 21st I also got a tattoo which I’ve wanted forever. I’m so happy with it!
A lovely pink bow, just how I wanted it, made up!
Just got the news of the next insiders challenge which is Festival themed. Can’t wait to start my post! Just like to thank Superdrug again for allowing me to be an Insider for a second year. Can’t thank you enough. To the new Insiders, you’re in for one hell of a summer! xo
