✌ Alone at Sea ✌

Amongst all the people walking around me

I walk ALONE near the sea

The ocean with its awe filled wonder

As the sand slips beneath my feet

I hear the waves

As I ponder

In this world, are we free

I feel some hope, My family brings

In this world whose with me?

Am I ALONE like I really believe?

Or is that just a part of me?

I could be the perfect actress,

Who doesn’t let anyone see

That I’m the only one standing ALONE,

When I’m ALONE at sea.

♥ Divergent – Veronica Roth ♥

This is going to be a review on Divergent by Veronica Roth.

Divergent - Veronica Roth

Divergent – Veronica Roth

Okay so why did I pick up Divergent? Well the real reason is because I know a lot of people who wanted me to 😛 Everyone is calling it ‘The Next Hunger Games’, but I’ll be honest here. I don’t see that.

The world of Divergent is split into 5 factions:- Candor [Honest], Abnegation [Selfless] Dauntless [Fearless] , Amity [Peaceful] and Erudite [ Crave Knowledge]. Now I don’t know if this is just me but the Potterhead side of my brain thinks in my head that Erudite is like a dupe for Ravenclaw, Amity for Hufflepuff, Dauntless a dupe for Gryffindor.

However there is some differences, for instance: I sort myself into Gryffindor though I call myself a Huffledor/Gryffinpuff as I do possess many Hufflepuff traits. Also the sorting hat on Pottermore sorts me into Gryffindor. However I think I belong in Amity as I don’t really like Dauntless. I find them stupid and just plain.. well stupid. Like seriously. Gryffindor’s are brave and courageous and then you have Dauntless launching themselves off buildings.

Also the only job Dauntless have is guarding the barrier. I mean is that it? That’s how they spend there lives when there not on some crazy suicide mission?!

Amity suited me I think because they  are FUN! Probably the only faction that is fun now I think about it! I think that’s what Veronica did wrong. She controlled the way people behaved, and I guess it worked. But will you ever find people who are completely  selfless, or people who are willing to blurt out all there secrets just to be honest? I don’t think so. None of the factions ever seem to laugh except Amity – I mean everyone at least cracked a smile once in their life right?

Most of the book was based on the romance between Tris and Four, which I admit was entertaining. It was also sweet, but very predictable.

Additionally, we found out almost nothing about what Divergent is, and that’s what the book was named. However veronica probably [hopefully] will go into more detail in the next book of the series, Insurgent.

On the whole I found Divergent enjoyable and a pleasant read, and I can see why it is on so many people’s top ten favorite lists!I am looking forward to reading Insurgent, definitely.

I give this book *** 3 stars, because it’s not horrible and it’s not rubbish but it makes me want to read on and find out what happens…( But then again I’m a naturally curious person! :p)

I would recommend this to people who have read The Hunger Games although I do not think it’s the NEXT Hunger Games. There are concepts which are vaguely similar.

Anyway, I love you guys my lil candyflosses :* :* Mwah Mwah!! ^-^

* Spring <3 Pictures *

Hey guys, me (Tj) and Tia thought we should take some Spring pics for you, please don’t complain about our messy garden and amateur photography skills. Plus these were taken by my phone, until, I can afford a decent camera *sigh*

Anyhow, the plants look great, although, most of them have been trampled on by a random cute little cat, who seems to have adopted us (I see him running in my neighbours garden right now lol)

Enjoy the pics =D (Some of them I’ve left full sized due to the utter yumminess)

Bourjois Paris: Healthy Mix Foundation Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’ll be reviewing the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation (Duh!) I really like this foundation, really reminds me of one of my Estee Lauder ones, but I can’t recall the name, OOPS!

Bourjois Healthy Mix

Cost: £9.99 This is how much it cost me, you may find it cheaper or more expensive elsewhere, but I got mine from Boots
Available in: Boots/Superdrugs (Any other Highstreet Retailer/drugstore)

The shade I got mine in, is 54, the shade name is Beige, which comes out quite dark on my face, which means I got the wrong colour, but I’m not that fussed, because it blends in nicely and doesn’t leave any streaky marks from my brush/applicator. They do have a nice range of colours available, but unfortunately you can only test on your hands and my hand isn’t the same colour as my face, weird I know!

Shade 54 Beige

Application: It applies very smoothly and has a soft satin-like texture, it feels great and lightweight on your skin. It reminds me of BB creams, it’s that lightweight and leaves a subtle glow/dewyness on the skin, which I love!!! Mind you, it doesn’t make you look shiny or oily, just dewy, which I think looks great and natural. The actual product feels like a cream but a little more runny, but you can totally control how much you want to use, the pump is just great. It does have a smell, but it’s not noticeable, it’s not a bad smell either and it’s not a smell I can relate to anything else, but I didn’t notice it when I used it, I only noticed it when I sniffed it now =D

Pump

Coverage: I would say it has a medium to full coverage, I used less than one pump which is very little and I used this on my whole face and it covered all my redness and evened out my skin tone perfectly. I do believe if you use one pump, that would be enough to cover your whole face and neck. I don’t really have blemishes on my face, but I certainly have discolouration from when I was younger and I had eczema on my face =( and it totally took them away, which is fab! I did however need to use my concealer on my hideous under eye dark circles, but they’re real bad lately!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

Ingredients: This product has some really strange ingredients I don’t remember seeing in any other foundation I’ve used, but I really don’t mind them. Not sure if they’re going to benefit my skin, but at least I don’t feel like I’m ruining my skin by using this product =P It has Apricot for radiance/Melon for hydration/Apple as an antioxidant and Ginger for Energy

Lasting Power: It says it’s supposed to last for 16hrs, I mean I don’t wear my foundation for that long, but the longest I wore it for was 6 hrs and it did last without touch ups!!! And I didn’t even set my foundation with powder once, which is great. I have normal to dry skin, so I didn’t feel the need, but people with oily skin might have to set this with powder.

Overall I think this product is super EXCELLENT and I recommend it to you all!!!!!!!!!!! I love that it makes you glow and I love love loveee the pump!!
