Book Review: Girl Online by Zoe Sugg

I am a huge fan of Zoella (Zoe Sugg) and so are very many people but I want to write this review without being bias, so i'm not going to write this as a fan but as I would any other book.
I also want to mention the stories that Zoe didn't actually write the book ; well I can't tell you if she did or didn't , but I know Zoe had help as she tweeted it , and that is all I know. If you want my opinion ; I think that she had help (as she said) , but the idea was hers and she is not an author so why does it matter if she had help.
Anyway onto the review, Happy Reading!

The book is about a girl named Penny who has a blog ; she blogs about her feelings and from this finds out she has anxiety.She goes on a trip to New York where she meets a guy, and lots of happenings take place. She also has a best friend who has the problem that his parents especially his dad are not in acceptance that he is gay, she also has highs and lows with this friend because of the guy. This guy named "Noah" has a secret, which really screws everything up but obviously *spoiler alert* it all turns out alright in the end!

I actually really enjoyed this book, and the secret was not predictable to me.It is a really easy read which would make it a great book for holiday or just anytime you don't want a book which will take you months to finish.You still really get to connect with the characters throughout the book even though its an easy read which means when events happen you really feel the emotions.The main character is a really relate-able character even if you don't suffer from anxiety, which makes you want to keep on reading. The only part I am not so in love with is the ending as I feel it is all a bit rushed. That being said I like the idea of the ending just not the way it was written.

Thank you for reading; if you do not agree (or do) be sure to comment down below.

Top Ten Drugstore Beauty Products

These are my top ten favorite drugstore beauty products; they are in no particular order, and I tried to pick at least one product from each "section".
Happy reading!

Loreal Paris Nude Magique Blur cream

This is a great base for the face and really just smooths everything out.

Bourjois healthy mix foundation

I am in love with this foundation ; I mix it with the Loreal Eau de Teint which is below. It has a good coverage and looks dewy on the skin.

Loreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint

This is a very light foundation which just glides on the skin. It blends to a powdery texture which I think looks really nice. This foundation would be great for you people who always tend to end up a little bit cakey (well not anymmore)!
It's also great mixed with a more high coverage foundation ; as I do with my healthy mix.

Maybelline Brow drama 

This product is my brow routine, i sometimes use a bit of pencil too if there are any major gaps but on the whole this makes my brows. It gives them a bit of color and keeps them in the right direction. Now I have the worst brows ever and this makes them look not so awful!

Maybelline Color Tattoo: My favorite colors are "Pink Gold" and "On and on Bronze" Cream Eyeshadow
"on and on bronze"                                                                                                "pink gold"

I love these to the moon and back! I bought the "pink gold" a while back when I was first getting into makeup, and very few of the products I used then i use now (partly because most were out of crappy magazines which I got just for the free-bee)!                          These just sit on the eye and do not budge , as you can see I have used "pink gold" mostly, this is because it is such a beautiful colour and is a little bit different than your regular browns."on and on bronze" I got when I realized how much I loved these products.It is a lovely brown , and great for everyday use. As you can see I like neutrals , but if you like the sh-bam colors they have a few of those too!

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara

 This is an amazing mascara, it just gives my lashes what they need.

Sleek au natural eye shadow palette 

I have had this palette for a long time and its amazing. I use it as well as my Naked 3 , but as that is not drugstore.......
I personally prefer the shimmer shades ; because of the colour of them but also I think that the formula of them is better than the matte shades.
This is a great all round palette, and I think it's the best in it's price range.

Revlon colorburst  Lip butter in Juicy Papaya

This is a beautiful lip colour for everyday and it also feels lovely and moisturizing on the lips.

Revlon colorburst Lacquer Balm in Vivacious

This is a rather bright shade, but why not just go for it. What have you got to lose! It has a minty taste which for me is a plus , and sits gorgeously on the lips.

Garnier Micellar cleansing water

This is my savior from makeup wipes! If you want to know more about this stuff I also mentioned it in my August favorites post!

August favorites

I'm just going to get straight to the good stuff ; so here's what I've been loving throughout August!
Happy reading!
Garnier Micellar cleansing water
I got this after watching so many videos where people mention that face wipes are bad for your skin, and before this stuff I was a face wipe lover.I did think face wipes were easier, but trust me compared to this stuff they are slower to use and more expensive. 
So apart from comparing it to face wipes it is basically water with whatever Garnier put in it to remove your makeup and cleanse your skin.Another amazing part of it is it comes in a 400ml bottle which it says will last you 200 uses, I have not put that to the test but i'm sure it will last me a while.
I would definitely suggest to anyone that wears makeup and wants a quick, easy, and non stripping of the skin way to remove it.

Mocha Coconut frappuccino from Starbucks
It tastes like heaven! 

Nail varnish
Seventeen Gel Colour: Mint bon bon

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I read this book on holiday and I was so lost in the book that when i would look up to get a drink or ... I forgot where I was and kind of felt like I was Cath (a character in the book), and that's what this book does to you.The book is about a girl called Cath who has twin called Wren, and Cath's journey through college without her other half Wren; as Wren decides she wants to do the whole college thing without Cath. There is love, sister problems, family problems, fanfiction and lots more that i don't want to spoil for you!
Spoiler Alert: highlight it- put the twins names together! (I don't know why i find this so exiting!) 

Papaja (flower pot) and Fejka (fake flowers) from IKEA
I don't know why but recently I have really wanted flowers in my room; unfortunately I don't think i could keep flowers alive so when i went to IKEA i got some fake flowers and a pot.They sit on my desk and I feel like flowers or any type of greenery adds a touch of freshness to any room; real or fake. TIP:Spray them with perfume so they smell good!

Taylor Swift: shake it off
This song is super catchy and i also think its really motivational as "the haters gonna hate .." but you should just "shake .. shake it off"!

doddleoddle: stuck the way we are
I recently found Doddie's youtube channel (doddleoddle), she sings and plays the ukulele, and also plays the keyboard while singing.She has a few original songs, but she also does lots of covers; which are all amazing!
My favorite song of hers as I said is stuck the way we are; this song has her sister in it as do some of her others which is super cute, and I also think a lot of people could relate to this song.
The last thing I have to say about doddleoddle is go check her channel out as she is very talented!(click here for a link to her channel & here for a link to stuck the way we are).

My Everyday Makeup

My  makeup routine stays quite similar everyday , so i thought i would show you  my everyday makeup products ; what they are and why i like them.

Baby skin
This is a primer which i like to use to just give me a poreless base for my foundation. I also think it makes my foundation last longer as is it just me but i hate having to touch up my makeup (ain't nobody got time for that). 
Ps i love the packaging!!

                                                                 Healthy mix foundation
I really like this foundation as it is not too heavy ; I really dislike heavy foundation , but it still gives me a nice everyday coverage.It applies nicely and doesn't do bad for my skin , but its does say for up to 16hrs which has never happened to me but i have never had a  foundation  last that long and it says up to.  

Rose gold 926
Sleek makeup
This blush is such a beautiful color , it is very pink and gives your cheeks a pretty glow. I also love the fact it has a mirror as that is just super helpful.

                                                          Stay matte pressed powder
This is just a basic powder ; it is super cheap and stops me from looking oily ( what more could i ask for?).

                                                    Color tattoo - pink gold
I love this so much as i can wear it on its own or just as a base and it has amazing staying power.
I would never usually go for pink eye shadow but i really like this color.

                                                 Au naturel eye shadow palette
                                                         sleek makeup
This palette is super natural which is great for everyday use i specifically use the shimmery champagne color in the corner on a daily basis. I wear it over my maybelline color tattoo to add some shimmer and sometimes if i want a less pink look.    

                                                                              Super liner
I got this recently and as I am not too good at applying eyeliner i am still coming to terms with it not being like a pen like my old one. I do really like this though and i can see this being a new favorite.

                                                                 Scandal eyes - retro glam
This mascara gives me great volume and  length. I have had it for quite a while now though so I think it may be time for a change.Saying that it is not drying up at all and i won't want to bin it until it is completely unusable. 

So many people recommend this concealer but i personally just think it is OK. It does its job and it is not a bad concealer but i have nothing amazing to say about it and i would not repurchase it.

                                                                       Brow pencil
This is OK but I just mainly use it to make sure my brows are neat and to fill in any empty patches.The problem I have with this is it constantly needs sharpening , so it does not last very long at all.

                                                         Tanya Burr lip-gloss
I love this lip-gloss so much! It is just so glossy and such a pretty color , and to make it better it is by Tanya Burr whose videos i love. I also don't usually wear gloss but for spring its perfection!
 Thanks for reading , I hope you enjoyed and I maybe gave you some inspiration towards your everyday makeup.Oh and happy late Easter , I hope you all got lots of chocolate and ate it all!
