The Unlimited Budget Haul…

2 Feb

Hello and welcome to another Sunday Post!

By the title of this post you might be like, ‘whattttt, Maisie had an unlimited amount of money to go shopping with!” Well, no I didn’t but I really wish I did, instead I pretended I had unlimited money and did a bit of online shopping to see what I would buy with an ‘unlimited’ budget. So I guess it’s more of a wish list, but I called it a haul because we are pretending, and pretending is fun right? Also all the things I have included are not exactly, ‘high street’ items like I would usually blog about, because I have an unlimited pretend budget I wanted to show you all the high end products I would buy in my dreams.

Also I thought this could be a kind of a tag also, so if you want to use this post and do your own unlimited budget haul, just steal it, and comment below the link to your post so I can see what you would buy, because I am tagging everyone who is reading this.

This is a small selection of the things I would buy if I had an unlimited budget, because I would go crazy if I really did have that much money to spend and buy a whole shopping centre for myself and a car to go around it in.

What would be the top of your list if you had an unlimited budget? Would you go to Boots first or are you more of a clothes, bag, and shoe person? Also remember to comment your post if you do it too.

See you soon,

My Love/ Hate Relationship with Beauty Tutorials…

10 Aug

Okay, let me set the scene which prompted me to write this post. (This post is a bit random, instead of a OOTD or haul, this is a bit more of a rant.)

So I love watching YouTube Tutorials, Tanya Burr’s in particular, so I look at the finished look and go ‘I’d really like to try that out, it looks really pretty.’ So I click on the video and start to watch it, she goes through foundations, and even though she might use a certain brand I know I’ll just use my own foundation and then the same with concealers. Everything is going great and I’m being so excited that I might be able to try out this beauty look, it comes to the eye shadow next, and out comes the MAC or NARS palette. ‘What’s so wrong with a MAC or NARS palette?’ I hear you ask, and my answer is nothing! I don’t actually have anything wrong with these palettes, I would love one myself but I can’t afford it and there lies the problem.

The majority of the viewers of beauty tutorials are teenage girls like me and I understand that these bloggers love these very expensive palettes but what I’d love is instead of assuming we all have these palettes and trying to guess ourselves what cheaper eye shadow looks about the same colour, they’d explain an equivalent colour to ‘Nylon’ or ‘Jest’ because I would really love to try out the looks but it’s so hard to try and recreate the same eye shadow looks not knowing what they really are.

Oh’ no not NARS!

I have nothing against Youtubers and I love Tanya Burr, she’s amazingly talented and beautiful, I’d love to be just like her but I like to watch or read a tutorial where the make-up is more in a teenage girls league with very little money so I could recreate looks so much easier.

Okay, rant over! If anyone can help me out? Is there a blogger out there who can do tutorials just using normal ‘drugstore’ make-up? Anyway, I’ll be posting one of my normal (and non-ranty) post later today or tomorrow, see you all then!
