#eBayFinds 3 Cropped Cami 99p | Topshop Petite Midi Dress 50p

eBay finds is back. Yup, for real. And guess what? I'm hoping it's going to stay regular (well, until the series runs out of posts at least..) I'm actually so surprised at the amount of people that still tweet me asking for these posts. It was the beginning of March when I bought these items and I'm writing about them now, nearly July. HEY HO, it's here and thats the main thing. You can catch up with my previous posts HERE and HERE. Cropped Cami, brand new with tags. Price: 99p Delivery: £3.20
I must admit I had no idea this was cropped as it wasn't actually listed as cropped and if you know me, you know I hate crop tops. I wouldn't have bought it knowing it was cropped (and it really is cropped, I think it just about covers my boobs!) but it's brand new with tags for 99p so you can't really complain. For under a fiver, you can't really complain although I do think I will be giving this to my younger cousin (thank me later, Em!)

Topshop Petite Midi Dress, very worn. Price: 50p Delivery £3.20
If you've been reading my blog for a long time you'll know I used to work part time in Topshop. I wanted this dress when it came in (a good 2 years ago now!) and I never got it. When I saw it on eBay, although I knew it was years old I still really wanted it. The dress is very bobbled and parts are worse than others but for 50p I just cannot complain. How could you?!

As always, remember to tweet me your #eBayFinds so I can see what you've got!

Makeup Revolution Amazing Lip Liners

I am definitely late to the party with this post. I mean, I did receive these in the post the day the launched but HEY as I'm always saying I'm slack. You don't need to read my excuses, you already know the drill!  

What's that I hear you cry? Makeup Revolution have finally answered our prayers and launched lip liners?!?! You would be correct. And boy are they good! With only 8 colours currently in the collection, you're certainly limited if your a red lip kind of girl but we can't have it all. Let's just hope that this is just the start of the lip liner revolution with more hopefully being released soon!

The liners themselves are in pencil form with magical lids that can only be described as 'sent from heaven'. I mean, c'monnnnn.. A lid that sharpens the pencil? It really isn't rocket science, but I can firmly tell you right now I don't own a pencil sharpener of any kind! *bad beauty blogger right here* so these really are summmmin' else. I think it's MUA that already do a pencil in this form but really every brand should follow suit! It really is amazing.

I always try to steer clear from pencil lip liners. It's kind of like an un-written rule. They are notorious to be sharp, scratchy and not very pigmented but these are so very different! Creamy, non scratchy, pigmented and yup, still pencil form. Who would have thought it?! The only let down is again, the colour range! I don't love a pink lip, I have warmed to it don't get me wrong but unless you like a dark purple or a barbie pink, these won't interest you.

Oh, and I totally meant to save the best bit until last. They are £1 each. Or go nuts, buy all 8 and save yourself £2. BARG

(links in order of colour, I think!) 

So there you have it! All the low down on the new kids on the block. Enjoy!

The Best Triangl Dupe On Earth?

Triangl Dupe | eBay

Well this doesn't feel weird at all.. Nope, not one bit. *I'm lying if you can't detect my sarcasm, it never translates well through the computer screen!* Anyways, I haven't died but thanks for those of you that checked up on me. I'm still here. Just a serious lack of motivation - yup, again - so I thought today I'd gently ease myself back to my blog by writing about something that is easy peasy and doesn't take much thought.

If you've been here since the start you probably (or if you don't, you now will) know that back in the good old days I blogged about anything and everything. Yup, quite literally. My blog had no limits! After a few months, I took a look at my stats and realised that certain posts were really not doing as well as others. Fashion posts, if I'm being honest with you. I just cannot see how anyone can blog solely about fashion! Although then again, just because it doesn't work for me doesn't mean it won't work for everyone. There are plenty of fashion blogs out there that do well. Each to their own, n'all that! So I quickly sacked them off. For a long time I classed myself as a beauty blogger. A long time being a year+. I've recently changed my genre again. Whiles I still blog mainly about beauty, I haven't limited myself to just beauty and I let myself chuck in a different post here and there. Albeit not very often, but still. It makes me feel better about it.

Anywaaaays I'm a self proclaimed cheapskate. I've admitted it plenty of times and hey, were all friends here. I can't imagine I'd be too much different if I had all the money in the world. Why would you pay so much money for something you can get for literally 1/20th of the price?! It doesn't make sense to me. *brings on the star of the show* 

The Best Triangl Dupe On Earth. There, I've said it. It's a bold statement to make. But I genuinely believe that out of all the dupes I've seen, this is probably the best. I don't tend to keep up with trends but I think the Triangl trend has died down(?!) although with Summer slowly upon us I can already see the copious amounts of bikini pictures that will grace my eyes.

I must admit I have never even searched a Triangl bikini so I'm not 100% certain on the prices of them but I do believe they retail at around £100, give or take. This dupe? Not even £5. Go mad, order one in every colour. The postage and packaging costs more than the bikini does! The only difference is the fabric. From what I gather, the Triangl bikinis are made from scuba material. These are your bog standard bikini material but hey, you've got to compromise. For such little price, who cares what the material is. The sizing is a little strange so I would recommend actually measuring your size as I have one in a S and one in a M and they both feel the same. Sounds too good to be true, I know. But have faith, try one for yourself..

You can thank me later. *kissey emoji*
