April Favourites

I've secretly always wanted to do one of these.
Its a thing right?
I'm pretty sure I remember it being a thing.
Originally I was going to call this post "This months favourites" but knowing me and my appalling post schedule, I'd probably have it up by August so this title avoids running any risks.

So this month has been pretty good, mainly because I've been shopping more and by doing so I've come across lots of products that I absolutely adore and I want to share them with you!

The first items are the MUA lip products, I got a £10 gift card for Trafford Centre (which is a giant shopping centre/mall) if you don't know what it is) and I decided to spend it in Superdrug, I really wanted Matte products since I fell in love with the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit but since I'm too poor to afford it I looked for a reasonably price dupe.
Then I stumbled across the MUA matte velvet lip lacquers, the bottle and colour is definitely what caught my eye first so I decided to buy two as well as matching lip liners.

 I honestly think the products are gorgeous and although on the swatches they don't look matte, trust me, they dry completely matte and they last SO long, its unbelievable.
I ate spaghetti and meatballs, ice cream and drank coke and it stayed immaculate I didn't even have to reapply and the price amazingly cheap, this isn't sponsored or anything I just loved the product, here is where you can buy the MUA lip products:

http://www.muastore.co.uk/luxe-velvet-lip-dash (Red Lip Lacquer)
http://www.muastore.co.uk/lip-liner-brooding-plum (Red Lip Liner)
Since I bought those products, I also got a free makeup bag, as you can see above, isn't it cute?

The next April favourite of mine is another product I've been wanting to get for a while, its another product I bought from Superdrug with my gift card, its the Barry M matte nail polish in Crush.
Sorry I cant show what it looks like on my nails, my phone camera is just not doing it justice but if you search "Barry M nail polish crush" there are loads of pictures that show the amazing quality of the matte nail polish.
I desperately need to get some more of these.

Moving away from Superdrug, the next April favourite of mine is this Zodiac necklace I purchased of Amazon, what I love about it is that it is so cheap and the quality is so good, you can also customize it which is definitely what stood out to me, you can get your name or anything you want put on the back of the necklace.
As I am a Gemini, I got the necklace in Gemini (represented by the twins) and on the back I had the name "Liyah" put there as it is my nickname, I got it in the number "12" font as there are 12 fonts to choose from.
 It also comes with an extra chain and a velvet pouch, it took about 5 days to arrive which is pretty good since they have to work on the customized engraving.
If you want to purchase a customizable zodiac necklace for yourself, click here:
The seller "MeMeDIY" does loads of different customizable jewellery that I will definitely be purchasing in the future, I definitely recommend it.

The next April favourite is more on the stationary side, its a Pukka pad I purchased of Amazon for my revision as my exams are uncomfortably close.
Its very nice, very simple and easy to write on and it has perforated paper so it can be easily removed as A4 paper. Pukka pads can be purchased from any stationary shop but here is where I purchased it from:

The next April favourite is the ASAP Science book, I got it from Amazon and I've wanted it for about a year now because it genuinely interested me, I'm halfway through it and I love how the book and drawings in the book are crafted, it explains many questions such as "Is the 5-second rule legitimate?, Is binge tv watching bad for you? Why do we get pins and needles?" etc.

So if you're generally interested in the answers to these questions, you can buy it here:
I recommend it because when googling answers to the questions provided in this book, most of the time the answers are over complicated and over explained but with this book explains it will the necessary amount of detail whilst still making it easy to understand, plus I guarantee everyone in your class will want to read it! Most of the questions are pretty funny!

The last April favourite of mine is the UHU glue pen.
I got it because I saw my friend using one and I fell in love with it. (Is that weird?)
So I immediately searched for it on Amazon and found it super cheap.
Its very useful if you're an art student because its so easy to use and has a stronger stickiness than PVA, in my opinion. My friend does art and she prefers it to normal glue whilst I use it to help with my revision. It looks like any pen but it is squeezable and doesn't leak out thankfully.
 The tip of it is made out of a net type of material and when you squeeze the glue pen the glue seeps out nicely.

And there it is, there are all of my April favourites, I loved typing out this post and it only took me about an hour to fully type out the post, take pictures of the items and add them to the post.

How To Survive School When It's Literally The Worst

I'm currently typing 3 posts at once because we all know my consistency sucks.
I was planning on uploading my post about exams but then I realised its been a while since I uploaded something more on the comedic side, I guess.
So instead of ranting about school, I'll give you guys a totally non useful list of things to help you survive the giant hole of death school happens to be.
(She says so passive aggressively)

This my friends is vital.
Unless you have some type of condition which allows you to just shut off your emotions completely, you're kinda screwed.
At school its filled with people, people who all have and are entitled to have opinions.
Not all of them will be nice because most people just suck and have to be like that, honestly you could probably be the Mother Theresa of school and someone would probably still form a negative opinion about you.
Now, I'm not going to be the typical person that says "Ignore it" or "Show no response" instead my advice is, go to the mirror and perfect your resting b*tch face.
Make it a stone cold look that you can shoot at any moment and if you ever get made fun of, flip your hair and say "M'kay"

2. Don't overthink/jump to conclusions
If you overthink a lot, Lord help you.
I'm saying this to myself too because my overthinking is tragic.
Overthinking/jumping to conclusions+school= hell.
And although its hard to stop doing, try not to because you'll most likely come off as a paranoid freak aka me.
I remember one time my best friend responded to my text and put a full stop at the end of the sentence, now we don't normally do that unless we're mad at each other so I spent the rest of my day thinking she hated me, when in reality, it was just an accident.
People are pretty strange, lord knows what's going through their heads but always assuming things is not the right thing to do, especially in school because you never know what they're actually thinking.

3. Don't be "that" person
Please don't.
You're probably confused to who "that" person is.
Well basically, "that" person is the one person that is known for doing something specifically annoying.
Here are some examples of "that" person:
-That person who wont stop snapchatting everything
-That person who clings onto people like a sloth clings to a tree
-That person who complains about their weight 24/7 when they're skinny as hell
-That person who obsesses over boys, TOO MUCH
-That person that takes everything too seriously

Knowing whether you're that person can be tricky but try watching out for peoples facial expressions when you're talking, do they look annoyed or mad?
Also listen out for if people are complaining about you for one specific thing.

4. Remember who you are
Who wants to leave school with a whole new personality?
Remember to stay yourself, I'm trying not to make this sound too typical but seriously too many people change personalities overnight to appeal to other people.
Now I'm not saying you can't tweak your personality a little but if you're changing who you are entirely in under 24 hours, then you've got a problem.
You'll probably find yourself caught in a group of friends that think you're something you're not, trust me, you learn the hard way.
When you get the friends that know you're true personality, its honestly the best.

5. Try not to die
School is stressful, I know I know but lets try not to let it beat us shall we?
I'm struggling with this at the moment but I just think to myself, how will I see future memes if I'm dead?
How will I know if Dan and Phil (#Phan) were actually a couple all along?
These are keys things to think about guys.

I think that's about as much as I can come up with for now, I hope you enjoyed my tips and only about 67% is actually useful because my advice has never been that great.
Let me know what you think of my tips in the comments!


This or That Tag


Its been a while since I've done a tag hasn't it?
(I honestly don't know, I should probably check)
I was actually planning on uploading a post about exam stress but I only have like one thing to say in that post so I might post that next, instead I decided to keep things light-hearted instead and do the This or That Tag
It was either that or the Dream tag which I may do as my next tag in the future.
But anyways, lets begin!

Dog or Cat?
I love both but I'd probably have to say dogs, just because they are more playful, every cat I try and interact with either hides or tries to scratch me -_-
Netflix or YouTube?
I REFUSE TO ANSWER THIS, I LOVE BOTH TOO MUCH, (I only like the American Netflix though, the English one sucks)
Phone Call or Text?
Text any day, I cant use emoticons during a phone call.
Toast or Eggs?
Cardio or Weights?
Ew exercise
Facebook or Twitter?
Erm.... twitter? only because I get to see funny tweets 24/7, my facebook is quite boring
Ice Cream Cone or Snow Cone?
Never really tried a snow cone so ice cream cone (but I really prefer it out of the tub more)
Mobile Games or Console Games?
Mobile, #KimKHollywoodFan
While walking: Music or Podcasts?
Music, I've never listened to podcasts whilst walking but I really should!
iOS or Android?
#TeamAndroid #ICantAffordAniPhone
Form or Function?
Pop or Indie?
Never properly listened to indie, so Pop
Cake or Pie?
Cake, just because there is more variety, I only like one type of pie, Apple <3
Swimming or Sunbathing?
Swimming, I tan too easily
High-tech or Low-tech?
I don't really know what low tech means so I'll just say High-Tech
Big Party or Small Gathering?
*clears throat*
Moving on..
New Clothes or New Phone?
Erm..... I have a lot of clothes but I always want more. Then again, my phone is ancient so I'll go with a new phone.
Specifically the Samsung s7 Edge, my dream phone.
Rich Friend or Loyal Friend?
What a silly question, Rich Friend!

I'm just kidding, Loyalty is way better than materialistic things from friends.

Football or Basketball?
Work Hard or Play Hard?
Play hard, what can I say, I like to play :) (No innuendo intended)
Nice Car or Nice Home Interior?
Its my dream to have a beautiful house interior I can put on Pinterest so I choose Nice home interior
Jogging or Hiking?
I gag at the thought of exercise, even though I need it badly.
I'll have to choose jogging
Bath or Shower?
Well showers give me the excuse to stand and linger in my own thoughts for half an hour and bathing gives me the excuse to sit and watch youtube for 2 hours..
I honestly don't know which one I like better
Sneakers or Sandals?
Sneakers, I have gross monkey feet
Glasses or Contacts?
I don't use either but I'd love to experience putting in contacts.
Hamburger or Taco?
Ugh, now I'm craving one
Couch or Recliner?
I've never had a recliner of my own so definitely a recliner
Online Shopping or Shopping in a Store?
Online shopping, it gives me the excuse to be lazy and has more variety with less of a search!
Receive: Email or Letter?
Letter, I love receiving mail for some reason
Passenger or Driver?

That wasn't all the questions but this post would go on for hours if I did all of them,
I hope you enjoyed the post and I'll see you guys soon!
