Worlds biggest Primark opening in a week

The countdown to the world’s biggest Primark opening is almost over!

The new Primark will be opening in a week and replacing the old store on New Street with a new, bigger updated version.

Birmingham’s new Primark will have five floors, making it quadruple the size of the current store.

The store will also have its own beauty studio for nails, make-up, hair, lashes and eyebrows.

It will also have a barber, a personalisation service, as well as three “unique and amazing dining experiences”.

Primark has revealed that there will be a Disney cafe in the new Birmingham store.

Sounds like Disney world is coming to the UK, maybe you’ll be able to have dinner with some of the Disney characters like in Orlando.

Reports suggest that it will be the only licensed Disney eatery outside of its resorts and cruise ships.

I’m thinking Mickey and Minnie Mouse themed food, Disney songs on 24/7, staff dressed as characters, Mrs Potts and Chip teacups with macaroons. So cute!

As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also going to be ‘recharge’ seating areas to relax in as well as free wi-fi.

We have been told to expect other surprises that will be revealed on the opening day on April 11th.

Birmingham’s new store will also feature what Primark’s calling its latest “contemporary shop fit” for “enhanced customer experience”.

With the opening day rapidly approaching, excitement and anticipation are rising and the expectations are high.

Payday couldn’t come sooner!

Most Iconic makeup looks of the 00s

Music from the 2000s has to be my all time favourite, I can remember listening to Beyonce, Ashanti and Mary J. Blige from a young age.

I feel that some of their looks have inspired me today, especially with makeup.

So, I’m going to look back on some of the most Iconic makeup looks in the 00s, and it is going to be a huge throwback!

  1. It’s Britney B**ch.

Britney was an icon back in the early 2000s, with her hits of Toxic and Baby One More Time and quickly becoming the Princess of pop, every girl wanted to be like Britney.

But for me, her most Iconic look has to be the I’m a slave for you, makeup.

Britney is slaying the smoky cut crease look, the turquoise shadow and highlighted brow bone really make her eyes pop, and I love the nude glossy lip.

Obviously, a lot of Britney’s makeup looks are amazing, but for me, I love the eye look in Slave for you.

 

2. Christina Aguilera

Know we all know Christina for being a bit well Dirrty, but her fashion and makeup over the years has been experimental and pushed the boundaries.

There so many of her look’s that I love; Candyman, Tilt Ya Head Back and Burlesque.

But the all-time glamorous look has to be Moulin-Rouge

This heavy purple smoky eye look with deep cherry red lipstick is certainly memorable.

The diamond necklace and red satin gloves compliment the eyes, I really love the gems either side of her eyes, the look oozes glamour.

 

3. Beyonce

Queen B has been an icon since her debut days in Destiny’s Child back in the 90s.

Her style has always been prominent and there are so many of her songs that I love.

For me, the most Iconic look has to be in Naughty Girl.

The song opens with her wearing a stunning pink dress with diamonds and suspender tights.

But her smoky eye look and bronzed contour stand out, clearly, B is ahead of the makeup game.

Next shes wearing a beautiful red lace dress, with a fur jacket with a glossy red lipstick.

Both looks are iconic, there are so many makeup looks that Beyonce wears that are stunning.

 

4. Jenny from the block

Jlo has been a beauty icon since day one, and we all know that her love don’t cost a thing, but I bet her makeup bag does!

Jlo’s makeup look in Jenny from the block is so dewy, her skin is glowy and radiant and her statement red lipstick is bold for the makeup look.

The natural thin brows emphasise the gold shadow and highlight on her inner corner.

What I like about this look is how glowy her skin looks and how JLo is wearing a pair of large hoop earrings and a fur coat to tie the look together.

The makeup is simple but it stands out.

 

5. Blu Cantrell

Blu Cantrell’s most iconic look has to be from her Breathe music video with Sean Paul, where she is wearing striking blue contact lenses.

Clearly, we can tell by the video that she loves the colour blue.

Her contact lenses are a stunning pale blue, with a pair of lashes even on the bottom lash.

Blue Cantrell’s glossy nude lip compliments the eye-look and makes her skin appear flawless and glowing.

 

That’s it for my most Iconic 00s makeup looks, please comment below and let me know which makeup look you like the most.

Richsuit review

Thinking about purchasing a wig from Richsuit.com ?

Well DON’T!

About a month ago I was scrolling through Facebook and saw an advert for wigs.

I thought I’d look on the website as it seemed legit and I thought that Facebook wouldn’t advertise a bad website..

..I was wrong.

I saw a stunning platinum blonde wig that I loved, the website included a video of a girl trying on the wig and I thought that it looked fine.

The wigs were also on sale so they were half price.

So I scrolled through the website and saw a lovely silver wig and purchased that too.

Below are the images on the website of the silver wig I bought.

In total the wigs came to £46.97

Which considering they were supposed to be about £100, I thought I got a good deal.

The wigs arrived within 7-10 days which at the time I was impressed with.

However.

I opened the wigs and they looked nothing like the photos on the website

I tried the “silver” wig on first..

I imagined that it would resemble Kim Kardashian, instead I looked like an old hag.

I’d honestly seen better wigs in my schools drama cupboard.

The platinum wig was infact platinum, but the roots were a greyish colour.

So it looked like my silver wig had been dipped in bleach.

Obviously, I wanted a refund.

That was easier said than done.

Unfortunately.

I thought I’d be able to find the return address on the website, but they didn’t actually say the address, all they said was that

“Our policy lasts 30 days. To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.”

I tried messaging them through their website, on Facebook as well as email.

I heard nothing for weeks.

Then I was really annoyed and demanded that they’d reply to me asap otherwise I’d get my refund if they give me the address or I complain to my credit card company.

They replied to me.

“Dear friend,we are fully sorry about the wigs.
Sometimes that it is hard to exactly look like the image online. I will confirm with our factory and discuss the factory and we will improve the quality of the wigs. Hope you can understand.”
I had to read it several times because the grammar was poor, and I couldn’t believe that they had completely dodged the question about giving me the return address, and admitted that they don’t exactly look like the images online. And they hope I ‘understand’ that basically I wasn’t getting my refund.
Well… I was furious.
I couldn’t believe how they’d spoken to me and addressed me as ‘friend’.
Although after my next email demanding that they give me the return address , I don’t think I was their ‘friend’ anymore LOL.

“Hi, have received your information, we will tell the factory feedback to your situation, to give you a reply later, please be patient and thank you for your support and understanding.”

Clearly I wasn’t getting anywhere.
So I contacted my credit card company and explained everything.
They were completely on my side, and got my refund back to me.
I would highly recommend researching companies before you buy from them, and if you purchase a product that isn’t what it was supposed to be to write a review to warn the next person.
I would never buy a product from Richsuit.
I thought that buying a wig from eBay or amazon would be a bad idea.
But I saw a wig review by Youtube star Jordan Lipscombe after she’d purchased different styled wigs from Amazon.
They were way better than the wigs I bought.
And at least you can return them easily if buy them from Amazon.
Anyways, Thank you so much for reading, hope this helps!

21 in New York


 

New Yoooork, concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there’s nothing you can’t do now you’re in New York. 

Firstly, let me just say how excited I am to write my first post on my blog!

At first I struggled thinking what to write about, and then decided to write about the most amazing trip ever, it certainly lived up to it’s expectations.

 

We flew out from Manchester to JFK airport with Thomas Cook, that is a different story entirely!

I’ll write a separate post on flying long hall with Thomas Cook.

I clearly remember sitting in the shuttle bus driving towards NYC anticipating what the city would be like, and then suddenly the skyline of the city appeared, it was truly breathtaking!

When we were driving through NYC it was like being a movie, yellow cabs everywhere, food stalls on every avenue, Louis Vuitton, Macy’s, Saks, Tiffany’s, and of course Times Square.

After the long journey from Manchester airport to JFK I was exhausted and couldn’t wait to check into the hotel.

I stayed in the Millennium broadway, It was better than I thought it would be!

We were upgraded to the superior room on the 49th floor as it was for my birthday.

The room was very spacious and clean, and had lovely view of NYC, and the hotel was just round the corner from Times Square, and right next to Sephora, PERFECT!

The first day in New York I got a coach out of the city to New Jersey to visit Woodbury Common outlet centre.

Oh…My…GOD!!

I couldn’t believe how amazing it was.

I thought Bicester village was good.

It was nothing on Woodbury.

There were sales everywhere!

When dropped off at Woodbury Common, you are greeted at the reception with a map.

For a short time only when I was there you could donate $10 to a cancer charity and receive 25% off one item in the shops participating.

My arms were completely full of shopping bags.

The discounts were insane.

I bought a pair of ice white Timberland boots that cost usually £160 on Missguided, but I got them for $75. Bargain!

I also got amazing clothes,shoes and more from: Tommy Hilfiger, Hunter, Calvin Klein, Puma, Ralph Lauren, Yankee Candle, MAC cosmetics and more!

I would 100% recommend to anyone visiting New York to go to Woodbury Common, as it’s a lot cheaper than buying from NYC.

As I booked the trip because it was my birthday, I had an amazing time celebrating my 21st in the big apple.

I started my birthday on 30th April, waking up to my hotel room full of balloons and banners saying happy birthday.

I’d never spent my birthday abroad so it was an amazing feeling waking up somewhere new to celebrate the day, considering most girls my age spend their birthday out in town and forgetting most of the night.

I had breakfast in the hotel, which was lovely are there was a small range to choose from, including: cereals, fresh fruit and pastries.

 

Later on I had an amazing time celebrating my birthday on this Spirit Cruise.

It was raining slightly, and I was worried my hair would flat or my makeup would get ruined!

Fortunately, we didn’t have to wait long, PHEW!!

We were greeted by our waitress for the night, Julianna who bought us our complimentary glass of wine.

It had lovely cocktails on board, amazing DJ, and really tasty food.

Especially as I’m a really picky eater, and was worried I wouldn’t like the food, but I did enjoy the meal on the boat.

We had purchased a table by the window, the view was breathtaking!

The table by the window was at an extra cost, however I thought it was worth it, especially at night when New York came alive.

The service onboard was outstanding, our waitress was Julianna and she was amazing, we certainly felt pampered whilst on the spirit cruise.

The boat was surprisingly spacious, and decorated very modern.

The DJ played a range of music, as well as any requested… so obviously I made sure to request some.

As the music was so good me and mum managed to get some of the people on board up and dancing, including a young couple celebrating their anniversary!

As we were lively and fun, the bar staff gave us free champagne and shots for being the most entertaining on board. YES!!!!

Overall I had an amazing birthday, and I don’t think I could have celebrated any where better than on the spirit cruise in NYC.

At the end of the night I was given a free dessert as well as a large punch bowl glass with Spirit Cruise written on the front.

I would love to go again, as I loved every minute of it!

I’d definitely 100% recommend going on the spirit cruise, especially for a birthday or celebration.

And a little shout out to Nicki (mum) who payed for the cruise and everything on my birthday.

Best birthday ever! 

The last day of being in New York we visited the statue of liberty and 9/11 memorial.

It was a lovely day and was a beautiful memorial.

Each year on everyone’s birthday the staff at the memorial place a white rose on the persons name, so their birthday will be remembered and celebrated, and never forgotten.

The trip was very hectic, the city certainly did not sleep! But it was a trip to remember, and I had a great time celebrating my 21st.

I would love to go back to NYC, especially at Christmas time!

Hope this has helped anyone planning on going to NYC.

I would definitely recommend the Millennium Broadway to stay in.

Thank you so much for reading my first ever blog post.
