I’ve been absolutely adoring Arctic Monkeys!¡!! Knee Socks is my all time fav but I also listen to Fluorescent Adolescent, Do I Wanna Know, Snap Out Of It and Fireside. Childish Gambino is also another recent favourite, 3005, Hearbeat, and IV. Sweatpants are my current most played❤️ Steve Aoki is also one of my favourite artists recently. I’m obsessed with so many of his songs including Back to Earth, Delirious, Get Me Outta Here, Rage the Night Away, and Turbulence. My other newly discovered artist is Flying Lotus and I adore the song Never Catch Me. My final lil shoutout goes to Style by Taylor Swift which is one of my favourite song of the moment😬👑

Here’s a more detailed “playlist” of my current favourite songs:

•Delirious, Get Me Outta Here, Rage The Night Away, Back to Earth – Steve Aoki
•IV. Sweatpants, Heartbeat, 3005 – Childish Gambino
•Tumblr Girls – G Eazy
•Knee Socks, Fluorescent Adolescent, Snap Out Of It, Fireside, Do I Wanna Know – Arctic Monkey

•Style – Taylor Swift
•Never Catch Me- Flying Lotus
•Can’t tell me Nothing, No Church in the Wild- Kanye West
•Peach – The Front Bottoms
•Two Weeks – FKA Twigs

So many more I’m just stumped!

Hope you all enjoyed and comment your current favourite songs😛

What’s On My iPhone 6 | How I edit my photos + More

Hello marvellous people on the internet😜

I’m currently typing this via my new iPhone 6!!!! I’m mega stoked (if the many exclamation marks didn’t show that already) and I thought it would make a great post to share with you guys what’s on my iPhone and what it looks like☺️ lets get started lads!

Lock screen:

IMG_1772.PNG

My lock screen is just a funny lil thing I found on Tumblr😋 it just says “I’m too tired to care”. To get in I have a passcode, but also a thumb-scan (I use both, but occasionally the thumb-scan doesn’t work so I use the code).

Home screen:

IMG_1765.PNG

I only have one page of apps (it feels so much more organized that way). So here’s the basic overview, I have a bunch of folders and such!
I’m gonna tell you guys all the apps except for the ones in folders, I’ll get into those individually😊

In the first row, I have messages, calendar, my photography folder, and newsstand (the pesky little app won’t go into a folder for some reason??). The second row includes notes, clock (use this for my alarm), ITunes Store, and App Store. The third row has health (I use this to track my steps, which I find quite nifty), settings, my “Extra Crap” folder, and calculator. My fourth folder includes FaceTime, contacts, my “Random” folder, and Music. The fifth row of apps is Yahoo Weather, and my “Games” folder. Also, my row of apps that is along the bottom is phone, mail, Safari, and my “Social🙋” folder.

Photography Folder:

IMG_1766.PNG

IMG_1773.PNG
My first folder holds all of my photo taking and editing apps! I will at some point get the app “After Light” but I don’t have money in my account for it yet- but just pretend it’s there😋 The first two apps come with the phone, camera and photos which are kinda self explanatory. The next app I have is Squaready, and I use it for the sole purpose of putting a border on my photos. Next, I have my Fotor app, which is my most used. It has editing tools as well as filters which is why I use it most!! After that I have PhotoGrid, and I use that whenever I make collages. QuickFlip is the next app I have, which is super super useful when you take a picture (I’m looking at you iPhone camera) and it flips the picture, this helps it to restore it back. I also have PicLab, for the sole purpose of using cools borders as well as the cool light leak effects they have. Also, I have the Vsco cam app that I just use for filters. My second last app is Adobe Photoshop (no I don’t edit my photos in the way you think) I just use the cool filters it has:-) Lastly I have the Rookie app, that i just recently downloaded and have been playing around with😋😋

ExtraCrap😝 Folder:

IMG_1767.PNG

IMG_1768.PNG

This folder pretty much entails all those apps the iPhone comes with that you barely use, and wish you could delete. Those include Compass, Tips, Voice Memos, Stocks, Videos, Game Center, Podcasts, Passbooks, Maps (okay I occasionally use this app), IBooks, reminders, and Weather.

Random Folder:

IMG_1769.PNG

This folder is the little folder filled with my misfit apps that had no place😜 Firstly there’s Shazam, which is this super nifty app that listens to music and tells you what song it is (Super useful if you hear music out and about and adore it or watching a tv show). Next I have Timetable, where I store all my school schedules in case I ever forgot them! My third app is called clue, and basically is just a period tracker (for gals only). I also have the Rogers app to make sure I’m not going over my data (the daily struggle). My second last app is the Characters app, which are like those cool symbols you see around, including ☮☪☼☆☯♡☻☠. Finally, I have the Dreamdays app to countdown special days like my birthday and Christmas (So excited for both!!!)

Games Folder:

IMG_1771.PNG

I’m not a gaming girl, but I do have a couple games in case I get bored! I have Piano Tiles (my record on the normal version is 402), Plants vs zombies, and Flappy Wings (aka a fake Flappy Bird) and my highscore on that is 44.

Social🙋 Folder:

IMG_1770.PNG

My most used folder!! It includes Facebook Messenger, Facebook, Snapchat (double chin central), Instagram (go follow me @thecutelittlebeautyblog), Tumblr, WordPress, Followers (to see my followers on Tumblr and Instagram), Buzzfeed (an amazing app, and website I definitely recommend it to every human), and Vine.

Hope you enjoyed and comment below your favourite app lovelies❤️❤️

Rimmel 60 Second Nail Polish in ‘I Lilac You’ | Review + Pictures | 2014 |

Hello All!

I adore nail polish, pastel being one of my favourites! This shade like it’s adorable name (I Lilac You) is a lovely creamy lilac. I find myself applying one or two coats to get the perfect opaqueness. Also this formula is very fast drying which is very good, especially during the upcoming school season! Another bonus about this lovely little polish is the price is a little below three dollars, which makes it so great! Overall I recommend it for the price, colour, formula, wear, and basically everything!

Why do you wear makeup? TAG | The Cute Little Beauty Blog

Hello Hello Hellooooo

I was tagged by the lovely http://thebeautyspotbloguk.wordpress.com/. Her blog is fairly new, and I am so glad she tagged me. Any who, let us begin the tag.

WhyDoYouWearMakeupTAG

1. When did you begin loving makeup?

I began loving “makeup” around 10 or 11 . And makeup is in quotations because it wasn’t the true makeup I used today. At that age, I applied shimmery lotion to my face (not super shimmery, more radiant I mean), my Hello Kitty Apple Balm, pink nail polish and a palette of light blue eyeshadow.

2. How do you feel without makeup?

I feel okay without makeup. I actually don’t wear or own foundation because I thankfully don’t have bad skin. I am a little insecure with my dark circles though, I cover them up every day. I guess I don’t feel bad without makeup but like anyone I’m a little insecure :)

3.  What do you like about makeup?

I like it because it’s fun. It’s a way to change your appearance and you can reflect your personality and style through the colour of your eyeshadow or the shade of lipstick you’re wearing. It’s also an art, being able to apply “paint” to your “canvas”.

4. 3 Holy Grail items?

Ummmm……. Lets do one of each (eyes, lips, face). For lips, hands down my Nivea Lip Butter in Vanilla & Macadamia. It smells heavenly, is creamy and really moisturizes my lips. For eyes, I’ve been loving Wet n Wild’s ‘Walking on Eggshells’ eyeshadow trio. For face, my Nars Creamy Concealer is a must!

American Apparel Medium Wash Easy Jeans Haul & Review | Back to School Part 3| 2014

Hey!

I recently ordered a pair of American Apparel ‘Easy Jeans’ and I thought I’d do a little haul of them, and give you guys an in depth review because they are quite expensive! Any who, lets get started…

AriaWatermelon2AriaWatermelon1Screen Shot 2014-07-20 at 9.04.30 PM

1. Unique Attributes: First off, above I have two photographs of the jeans that I took on myself, and one from the website. Some things very distinct about these jeans compared to other are they’re very highwaisted (and make it very easy to pass crop tops as regular tops, especially at school!). Another unique attribute is they have no front pockets, which I enjoy and I think it gives a sleeker look, however it might not be everyones cup of tea.

2. Colour: As for color, I purchased these in the ‘medium stone wash’. I really like the colour, and find it works well with most tops. It is very true to colour, because as you can see above my pictures pretty well match the websites picture, so props to American Apparel.

3. Fit & Size: When it comes to fit, they fit so nicely! They really hug your legs, and they aren’t so tight they are suffocating your legs, but still hug your legs really well. Another thing is I have bad problems with not being able to get my heel through jeans, but with these jeans, no problem! As for fit, I got and XS and I’m 5’6 so if you’re questioning what size, size down.

Overall, I really enjoy these jeans and if you’re willing to shell out the cash, I think they’re totally worth it!

Hope you enjoyed, and come back soon for an H&M haul!
