Get Ready With Me: New Years Eve

Another get ready with me aren't you lucky ;) I am off to my friends for a New Years gathering which I can't wait for! I really want to show you my makeup as I am hoping to go all out. I have also picked out some old favourites too because I don't like people thinking that maybe I just buy something and never use it again because some of these products are essentials.

What I Got For Christmas 2014

Hello everyone! I hope you have all had a super amazing Christmas and boxing day! It went so quick didn't it? Today I am back with my annual what I got for Christmas post! This year I didn't really write a wishlist or anything to anyone (obviously I posted one of my blog but no one would see that) as I didn't feel like I truly needed or wanted anything. Therefore I think it was pretty much a struggle for everyone with what to get me and to be honest I really don't care because it's all about the thought of a present. Plus I love Christmas for spending time with my family. Of course I have to chuck in a disclaimer in saying that this is not me trying to brag or boast as I am so grateful for what I got. I'm not even sure if the amount I'm showing you is impressive or not even anything but as a blogger and super super nosey person I want to show you all what I got so enjoy!

Haul: Clothing and Makeup First Impressions

Hello everyone! How are you all? I am currently dealing with balancing both my school work and blogging at the moment so apologies for my inconsistent posting, please bare with me! As I have been feeling super stressed with school and of course me being a blogger I thought that the best way to feel better is to go out and buy lots and lots of stuff!

August Favourites 2014

Bit late with the favourites as usual but better to have some then none at all! I thought I would try doing both beauty and non beauty picks as well as mention a few blogs/youtube channels I have been loving so let's get started!

Tag: How Much Is Your Face Worth?

I haven't done a tag in forever so I thought it would be super fun to do this tag as I have seen so many people doing it! I am very scared of how much this will come to as I do spend ridiculous amounts of money on makeup... But I do buy some bargains so I am really unsure. I am also going to mention brushes I use too (not that they will make much of a difference!)

Back To School/Work Makeup || Simple and Cheap

So it's that time of the year again when we are all heading back to school/work but why not go in looking absolutely fabulous? (Cringe!) Today I thought I'd show you all my top picks for school/work makeup which is super cheap, well most of it, and is so easy to use. Another disclaimer (if that's what it is) you don't have to wear makeup for school/work, most of the time I don't but this is just an idea of some products that are convenient.

My Top Makeup Picks For The Summer

Hello guys! Thought I'd do quite a fun post today showing you all my top makeup products that I love for the summer. In the summer I prefer having healthy and bronzed dewy skin, bright eyeshadow, simple eyebrows and bold lips. In the winter I always go for nudes and subtle browns so I am so happy to be coming out of my comfort zone and trying some new bits and bobs.

Haul: e.l.f Makeup Products and First Impressions

So some of you might not know but for a while I was on a spending ban, because of this I kept going on websites 24/7 looking at their deals and new arrivals. On e.l.f I realised there was an August discount code where you could get 50% discount off every single product which I think is amazing! A delivery which cost £40.95 became £20.47 with free delivery! I am pretty impressed with myself. I got 12 products also so I am very pleased with how well I spent my money. I better start showing you all the products I got and my first impressions then!

July Favourites 2014

I feel like I am constantly posting favourites but I am trying to keep to the schedule of doing one when the month ends so here I am! Next week will be different haha! July has been a fun month of me as I got a job in a charity shop and had two spanish exchange students live with me again! I also had my prom too which I loved!

June Favourites 2014

So I am here with my extremely late June favourites as July is ending now, dear oh dear! I promised you all that I would start doing more monthly favourites and of course I couldn't break the promise! The majority of these aren't new and are things that I have just rediscovered and fallen in love with. So let's get going!

My Sister's Make Up Collection!

Hello everyone! I have a really fun and interesting post today and it's taking a sneek peak into my sisters makeup collection. Unlike me, my sister is not really into her makeup (she doesn't need it!) so what you see here is all she has. It does shock me how much she has and she doesn't understand why I have so much. Explaining what a primer was the other day to her was pretty hilarious. So when my sister and I popped up the high street my sister wanted to go into Superdrug to get some bits and bobs, she wanted my opinion on a few products which I really enjoyed doing. I really loved the fact that she took an interest in it all and she was the one who came up with this post so thank you! I've decided not to talk through all of the products and instead just picked out some random bits and bobs. As you all know I love being nosey so we should get to it!

Get Ready With Me: Year 11 Prom

Hello everyone! I had my prom on Tuesday and thought it would be really fun (and scary) to show you all what I wore and how I did my makeup. I opted for a very natural look as I didn't want to risk a smoky eye or winged liner to go wrong. My main goal with my makeup was to ensure that my face looked flawless and there were no spots seen at all. I went with a super pretty dress too that made me feel way too girly!

Mini Haul: Superdrug & The Body Shop Make Up || First Impressions

Today I have a mini haul for you all, I popped out to my local Superdrug and Body Shop to grab a few bits and bobs that I've seen reviews on online and desperately needed!! I didn't want it to be too boring as just a mini haul so I have wrote my first impressions of them also. I got them a couple of days ago and tried them for all of the days as a sort of experiment I guess you could say!

Guest Blogger: Favourite Face Products || confessionsofamake-upaddict

Hey guys!

My name is Bek, and I am from Sydney, Australia! I run a beauty blog called Confessions of a Make-Up Addict, which is my own little creative space to talk about all things beauty related. I love to do product reviews, first impressions, tutorials, hauls and so much more! Today, I'm going to talk about my favourite face products. Of all cosmetics, I have to say that I am a face junkie. I love primers, foundations & concealers so much, and they do make up the majority of my collection. To say I like to buy and try is a little bit of an understatement...

I'll be going through my recommendations for primer, foundation, concealer, primer and powder today! I hope you enjoy this post and find something that you may not have known about before.

Makeup Mess: Everyday Look

Hello everyone! Hope you're all okay, I am so so sick of revision so as a little break I thought I would write a blog post which wasn't pre-scheduled or a guest blogger just as a little relaxation for myself (I find blogging really calming) With an hour to spare I have chucked all my 'go' to makeup at the moment on my Beyonce programme and thought I would just talk to through these products I have been wearing lately.

Right, today I thought I would talk you through my current essentials for my skincare.

Mini Haul: Instagram Recommendations

Hello everyone! As you all know I am such a shopaholic, I need a daily shop every week and for some mad reason I was stuck on what to go out and buy! Therefore I went on Instagram and looked for some inspiration as well as asked a couple of my favourite bloggers what to get.

Guest Blogger: Favourite Lipsticks || lilliesandlipbalm

Hi! I’m Mel from and Taylor really kindly invited me to talk about my favourite topic on her patch of the internet – lipstick! I am one of those girls who just can’t get enough lip choices, I always have a good few options floating around in my handbag and I can’t walk through Boots without adding a new lippie to my stash. It was actually pretty difficult to pick my favourites, but I’ve narrowed it down to my 8 absolute favourites for all occasions and all times of year.

Mini Haul: 3 for 2 at Boots

Hello! Today I thought I would show you a little haul of stuff I got at Boots in the 3 for 2 which every blogger has been crazing about. I didn't buy much as firstly I have no money at all after spending loads of Benefit and Urban Decay products... Oooops... But I couldn't resist a good bargain!

Product Review: Benefit Lollitint

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well, today is the day I finally post my Lollitint review after weeks of saying I would.

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a great start to March.. I can't believe its March already! Now today, I thought I would do my current favourites.

Follow Me Around: London Fashion Weekend 2014

Hello everyone, today I thought I would do a very exciting post talking about my day at the London Fashion Weekend! Whilst I was away in Berlin, my aunt surprised my cousin and I with tickets to go on the Friday which I was oh so excited about. We did a bit of browsing, shopping and of course lots of selfies! Due to bad organisation on my part, I didn't take my large Nikon camera and instead took an old Samsung one so the photos aren't so good but I hope you still like them and see how lovely of a day it was.

Product Review: The Fragrance Shop Discovery Club Box || 5th Edition

I love trying new perfumes and fragrances so when I was sent this Discovery Box in the week, after speaking to Steph from Sparkle PR (who was lovely by the way), I was extremely excited to try them all out! The Discovery Box is exactly like a Glossybox or Birchbox subscription but you get new perfume samples which I find really cool and unique. However, this is a quarterly subscription service (every 3 months) and just for £5 you can get 6 female and 3 male samples that you can cancel anytime you want!

My Travelling Essentials and Makeup Bag || A Trip To Berlin

Hello! Or should I say Guten Tag! I am off to Berlin in a few days wooooo! I am super excited as I am going with my pals so it's going to be lots of fun. I have to spend a 16 hour journey there and back by bus which means I will be packing lots and lots of food and skincare essentials for the rough trip! Most of my family and friends know that I really do like to over pack and ensure I have everything for any sort of scenario. (I have an emergency bag in my school bag) So I thought this post would be really interesting for those who don't pack enough or know what to pack for trips or for those like me who are obsessed just to relate to and suggest some more things to pack! I'm going to show my travel makeup bag as well as just the odd travel essentials so please sit back and enjoy reading!

Product Review: Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette || Favourites Swatches

Hello everyone! I hope you all having a great start to February! I don't mean to sound old but isn't time going much faster now? Anyway, today I thought I would just sit down and do a product review as I haven't done one in so long. And I'm pretty apprehensive to write this because I have just completely forgotten the structure or technique of this post so please bare with me if it's all just being chucked around! So yes, I have given into the hype and spent £37 on the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette which my mother was not pleased about! Another funny thing is that my window cleaner caught me taking pictures of the palette and gave me a very awkward stare....

Beauty Box Swap: Make Up and Other Junk

I have always wanted to do a beauty box swap ever since I joined the blogging community. I love the element of surprise, obviously receiving some beauty products but also really getting to know another blogger. A few weeks ago I contacted Ellie from Make Up and Other Junk, I love her blog so so much and you should really check it out by clicking here! She is honestly one of the nicest bloggers that I have ever been lucky to speak to! I asked if she would want to do a beauty box swap and she happily said yes!

Make Up Mess: Natural Look

Hello everyone! I hope you've all been having a great start to 2014. I just found out my GCSE mock results which I am extremely pleased with (6A's and 4B's) so I am starting the year really really well. Not only that, but I have been chatting with a few of my favourite and new bloggers to plan future guest posts and other stuff! So it's all really exciting! I was lucky enough to collaborate with Amourtera (Kelly) and 5 other beauty bloggers last weekend to create an amazing 'Favourite Natural Makeup' post which you can check out here! It was so much fun to do and I really enjoyed writing it as well as chatting to a few of them too! I thought that today I would just show you my part of the post, as a sneak peek!

My New Year Beauty Resolutions

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! THIS THE FIRST POST OF 2014! It's amazing how far What Taylor Buys has come since my introduction post 2 years ago. And I would like to thank anyone who is following, commented or just had a little scroll. I hope you all had an amazing new years eve/day. I spent mine with my friends having a pathering (a party gathering) which was lots of fun. Back to business! Now we're all making our New Years resolutions, hoping that it might last for even the first month. I always make the resolution that I will eat better or go to the gym but they never interest me therefore I never succeed. So today I thought I'd show you my beauty resolutions, something which appeals to me a lot more and posting it on here will make me stick to them!
