Maybelline Color Elixir Review | CharlotteBehappy





Whilst writing this post, I'm yet to start Sixth form but by the time you're reading this I've already been at a new school for a month (crazy!). Therefore I need more nude/neutral lipsticks (I tend to have a lot of reds and pinks). I watched a hell of a lot of glosses and lipsticks on my hand before picking up this number.


Topshop 'Brighten' Highlight Pen Review + Swatch | CharlotteBehappy





A while ago I won a £100 Topshop voucher and I decided to pick this up. This is one of those highlight pens designed for highlight and contour. This was a little disappointing.


W7 Absolute Lashes Mascara Review | CharlotteBehappy




I would say I liked Benefit They're Real, but for me it wasn't perfect. I bought this off Amazon for £2.50 after seeing this review. It's definitely an amazing dupe!


Revlon Photoready BB Cream Review | CharlotteBehappy






So this is the worst BB cream that I've ever tried. I bought this from Boots and it was pretty pricey, I can't lie I was pretty pumped to try this. Revlon is an expensive 'drugstore' brand (if you can even call it that) and I rarely treat myself to Revlon makeup. I have this in the lightest shade and it has SPF 30.


Coffee Table Books | CharlotteBehappy





Hello, today I thought I'd just share with you two pretty good books I've got
The first is Question Everything and is by New Scientist. It's full of questions that people frequently ask, mostly science based and then has answers submitted by readers. It's pretty simple so that anyone can understand, and it answers questions you didn't even know you had.
The second book, Things That Nobody Knows is full of all the things that nobody knows. This books teaches you about things and then tells you that nobody actually knows the answer. It varies over loads of topics. I feel like if I memorised this book I'd be a pro at university challenge.

What are your favourite coffee table books/non-fiction books?

Volunteering | CharlotteBehappy





Hiya so today I just thought I'd share some information with you about some volunteering I've done.

So from September to May I volunteered at a Banardo's Charity Shop. Whilst there I basically cleaned any ceramics or crockery or cutlery that was sent in. I sorted through donations and tagged and sorted clothes. I cleaned the shop floor and shelves as well as checked CDs weren't scratched and toys weren't broken. I did about an hour at a time and it mostly consisted of sorting and cleaning. My manager was really nice and we mostly just chatted. Before I left I had just started learning how to work on the till. When I go to do Duke of Edinburgh silver, I'm mostly likely to go back.

This summer and last summer I've volunteered at the Summer Reading Challenge at my local library. These reading challenges are basically designed for kids to read books. They're supposed to read 6 books over the holidays and they get a prize for each book they read. My role is to listen to the kids read some of the book they've read or listen to their review of the book. I then give them some prizes and help them to stick an animal on the board which represents each book they read.

I hope this interested you, encouraged you or informed you. Leave any questions down below.

Bacne Update #2 | CharlotteBehappy





To read my first Bacne Update go here.
So I went to the dermatologist and he seemed pretty convinced that my acne had probably cleared up due to the gel and antibiotics. I stopped using the gel because it made my skin irritated and it started peeling. I then went on holiday and got sunburnt. He prescribed this new stronger gel that I've been using since, as well as two more months of antibiotics (that'll make six months). I feel as though finally there is some improvement. I'll let you know when I finish treatment, although the dermatologist said that since it's not severe enough for strong treatment, it may never be perfect.

Shoe Collection: Heels, Flats, Trainers & Boots | CharlotteBehappy




Hello everyone! Today I'm showing you all the shoes I own! I hope you enjoy. I'm wearing socks because I don't feel like putting my feet on the internet, but usually I'd wear some of these without socks.

 Black suede heels: Matalan
I bought these for my Leavers Tea and they're rounded black heels with no platform. They're pretty uncomfortable but not too high. They're also not rain appropriate.
