I'm completely obsessed with Topshop's range of lipsticks. So far I have four different shades: brighton rock, hazard, beguiled and rumour has it. The creamy texture of each applies incredibly smoothly, and the colour lasts for hours without fading. I was also a little bored yesterday so I made a short video with them.

I'm sure it has it's flaws, but I must say I'm impressed with the UK's rail network, and how easily you can reach everything! While based in London I caught the train to Oxford where I spent 2 nights in a lovely little B&B while I wandered through the idyllic city and perused the University. Oxford, and the many colleges (I visited St Hildas), are steeped in such history it's difficult not to feel astounded at everything. Especially with names like the Ashmolean Museum and Bodleian Library.
Next stop...Paris x
While staying in London I escaped to Brighton for the day and had a great time at the typical English seaside. When I arrived, the weather was fantastic so spent the morning enjoying the atmosphere, funfair rides and view from the famous Brighton Pier, complete with fish and chips for lunch. Later, although the weather took a turn for the worse, I strolled the eclectic shops hidden throughout The Lanes and headed towards the Pavillion, which is very impressive x
I'm a huge Harry Potter geek, so may have organized my trip to London to coincide with the Deathly Hallows Part 2 World Premiere. I will proudly admit that Jess and I spent 36 hours camping out in Trafalgar Square along with thousands of other crazed fans. Having pushed our way to the front of the barrier, where we stood for a painful 8 hours in terrential rain, it was well worth the wait when the sun emerged just in time for the stars to arrive. Not only did we have a prime view of the red carpet, but managed to score 10 seconds of fame with TV3 film critic Kate Roger. It was amazing to see all the cast in person, but if I had to pick a favourite it would be Rupert Grint, who went out of the way for all the fans, being the first to arrive and last to leave. After all the autograph signing, interviews and photos, the red carpet ended with speeches from the trio and J.K Rowling that left everyone present teary-eyed and chanting "til the end". It really was an unbelievable experience that I will never forget.
As well as the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Red Carpet, I was able to go to the opening of the Harry Potter Exhibition at the London Film Museum, do some location spotting around the city and finally, see the last film myself at the midnight IMAX release in Greenwich. I think I've made it pretty clear that I'm pottered for Potter. I hope you enjoy my videos and red carpet photos below x
