The killer pringle

Hey guys,

Todays post is going to be short and bitter.

What I am posting about today is not really a review, it's more like a criticism or judgement if you will and it all starts with one word. Pringle. 
Why on earth would they do this to me? 
Every other crisps brand has stuck to the basic rules:

Red = Ready salted/original flavour
Blue = Cheese and onion
And Green = Salt and vinigar

So it completely baffles me as to why Pringles has decided to "Be different" and make their green cans Sour cream and onion. Twice this week,. Twice! I've grabbed the green can , therefore
I purchased the wrong flavour. I am beyond annoyed because not only.v
 is sour cream and onion the wrong flavour, but it also has a thick odour which prevents me from eating it discretely. I'm serious. A few days ago, I was staring, so i took out my Pringles (without realising I had purchased the wrong flavour) and started eating it. I think the stench hit me before the realisation that I was eating the wrong thing. Then people started going "err, what's that smell". It was soo embarrassing, a problem I would have never had to encounter had Pringles stuck to the basic rules

Anyway, I've got another quote and picture for you all,

Beautyuk Posh Pout Lip Review

Hey guys,

I was looking through my drafts and I stumbled across this.
My BeautyUK Posh Pout Lip Review, just itching to be completed and posted.
These are some of my favourite products from their whole collection, but unfortunately,  today I only have three balms to review; Power to the purple, Sugarplum fairy and Big pinkin'.


If you're in search of a product which will add colour and is easy and quick to apply to your lips, then Beautyuk Posh Pout Lip crayons could be the ones for you. They are available in six different shades of pinks with hints of purple and red, so all you have to do is pick the one that most compliments your face and skin. 
If you're you have a darker complection, like me, I'd recommend either the Power to the Purple or the Sugar plum fairy shades.
Big pinkin' Sugar Plum FairyPower To The Purple,Corally Incorrect, How Nude! and  Would I Lilac To You?

They are currently retailing for £2.99 at each at Superdrug, which I think is an amazing price due to the effectiveness of the products. 

Left to right: Power to the purple, Big Pinkin', a repeat of Power to the Purple and last is Sugarplum Fairy

Positive aspects:
1. The fact that they are a lip balm means they are really hydrating
2.It's a twist up packaging so need to fuss with sharpeners
3.The colours are Long-lasting
4.Cheap price (I got them for free from a blogger meet-up)
5.Minty scent
6. Smoothness causes it to gently glide across your lips

I only have a few improvements to share about this product; 
First of all, the 'Power to the Purple' balm tends to leave a semi-strong tint on my lips even after a few hours of removal (testament to their long lasting abilities) which I'm not happy with and, I'm not sure if the products have the same affect on anyone else but although smooth and easy to apply, they tend to dry out my lips which is the complete opposite to what lip balms are supposed to do. 
If this also happens to you, you could do what I do by applying a thin coat of  Shea lip butter on my top lip before applying any shade of the Posh pouts onto my bottom lip, then I blend them together using my lips. This is a good way to sport the colour of the balms whilst keeping the moisture.
The packaging is also quite fragile, not in the sense that it'll break on touch, but I found that if I left it in my pocket with anything else, the packaging will start to scar and peal, making the overall product look very old very quickly. My last query is that the balms are easily transferred from your lips to any surface, so I have to be cautious around my clothes and furniture.

Hit by a tonne of bricks...

Hey guys

I'll truly be baffled if anyone is awake at this time to read this post, actually... just because it's midnight here in London doesn't mean that it's not morning somewhere else. 

Last week was rough. 
If you're someone like me, who likes to procrastinate and/or create a false hope that there is enough time to do multiple tasks in a short amount of time, then GCSEs will/has probably also hit you like a tonne of bricks.
Some of the reasons why I've been M.I.A recently is because I've been staying behind at school a lot more to: finish off some of my incomplete work, do homework, revise or participate in my after school clubs such as Netball and art club. So I've been coming home absolutely knackered, which forces me into an involuntary nap, causing me too sleep from somewhere around 6pm through to somewhere between 9:30 and 10pm. I hope you see the problem with this. I sleep straight through my Blogging deadline (for those of you who didn't know, I've been aiming to post every day at 8pm) which is why I have come to the conclusion that, until my GCSEs are over (sometime next year, I think in July) or I'm on some sort of holiday, I can't post every single day
*Cue the worldwide tears* 

It's actually quite weird. When I first created this blog, I was soo scared to share even the tiniest snippet of information about my life because I didn't really want anyone I didn't know involved with my personal life, and now I always say "I'm going to blog once or twice a week" but I always end up posting more because I have soo many things I want to share with you.

I think we should end this week on something slightly interesting. Maybe two days of reviews? Sound good?
Okay. Tomorrow is a review on 'Beauty Uk Posh pout moisturising twist-up tinted lip balm'. What shades match me and what shade makes me look like I have some sort severe lip condition.
Then on Friday, I think I might do another BlueBird tea review. Maybe on saturday I'll post about the perverted man I always see on my bus in the morning. The key word here is 'maybe'.
You see, I'm doing it again, I've already started already making plans to post every day when I literally just announced that I have to stop.
I'll try and get all of my posts up at 8pm whenever I post, whether I'm awake or not.

Oh! I'm pretty sure I mentioned this a few posts ago, but if you want to know when I'm posting or what I'm about to post about, you can follow me on twitter @TrustInJess
feel free to tweet or dm me about anything at any time.

Art, School and my shattered confidence...

Hey guys,

So this weeks posts (or lack of posts) haven't exactly gone as planned. I usually post something new every day at 8pm, but I think my school schedule has become way too hectic for that any more. I know you're probably thinking "well, you could always schedule the post, you don't always have to type it up on the day" and you're probably right. But if the past is any indication, like oil and water, scheduling and I just don't go together. Just when I thought I had mastered the art of it, a post I had scheduled failed to post and I had to manually post it (when I realised) an hour later (I was really annoyed). Yesterday, I got home really late, like around 8pm so there was no way I could post. I was also really exhausted and almost fainted. Today was practically the same, I stayed behind to finish off my Geograpghy controlled assessment and by the time I got home, I was soo knackered I fell asleep. 

If you want to know when I post, you can sign up for the e-mail alerts or you could just go and follow me on twitter @TrustInJess you'll know it's me because my profile picture is exactly the same as my Google + account.

Enough about that, yesterday I volunteered to stay behind at school to help the art department because it was opening evening. If you don't know what this is, opening evening is when primary school kids )in year six) go on tours around our school with their parents whilst students (such as myself) do some 'work'. In the art room, there were three tables, one in front of the other, and there was three of us, so it only made sense that we sat there. I don't even know why, but I chose to sit at the middle desk. Big mistake.

One of my friends, called Zoe, who is amazing at painting sat in front of me. She usually works on a canvas with oil paint to create amazing portraits in the style of realism (I'll ask her if I can post a few photos of her work) and my other friend, called Kayleigh, works really well with photography and string. She'll take portrait photos of people then stitch into the photos with a needle and thread. And then you have me. I don't really know what I'm good at. Lord knows how I've been getting good marks in art. I'd say I'm good with charcoal. I would like to think I've mastered the art of creating portraits using spray paint and charcoal, but in the style of Alison Lambert and also interpreting the art of decollage.

So, remember what I said. Kayleigh is really good at photography and Zoe is really good at painting. We had to get some of our previous works out onto the our tables, so the passing parents and children could see the standard of work we've been doing. To boost compliments, I put one of Zoe's paintings on my desk before any of the parents arrived. When the tours came 'round to the art room, I had a mixture of my works on the table and Zoe's' painting. My work was greeted with a few good comments by the odd parent or child, but every single parent and child complimented me on her painting, asking me if I had done it and whatnot so I just played along. The massive blow to my confidence in my work is the fact that I only had a few "omg, that looks cool" whereas her painting (on my desk) was welcomed by gasps of amazement and "mum! look at that one, it's sooo realistic and awesome". Sat quitly in front of me, Zoe had a small smile on her face (she could hear every compliment about her work), I just responded saying "Omg hahha I hate you" (before you get too shocked, we have a thing where if we say "I hate you" it basically means that your work is amazing and I wish it was mine). Then the art teacher came around and asked if I could finish my painting and that's when I came clean that it wasn't mine. He picked up the painting and set it back onto Zoes table and that's when all the compliments aimed at my tabled ceased to exist.
Behind me, as you know, sat Kayleigh. She too has amazing work, so the parents and children were complimenting her work and asking her how she did what she did and whatnot, whilst I sat there, almost compliment-less listening to them getting praise.
Now that I think about it, it's quite funny. It's not like I think my work is bad, Sir did say that if I finish everything, I could be looking at an A*, but it's so weird how just a little compliment (or lack of) could make you feel better or worse about something.

Anyway, I've got another quote and picture for you all,

Hey guys,

Recently, my friend Kayleigh introduced me to a new app called Polagram which allows people to order and print pictures directly from their smartphones, tablets, Facebook and instagram at a very cheap price.

If you want good quality polaroid sized photos, go the App-store and download the app 'Polagram' to  start printing your photos today! Order with my code: PG118RQ5

Basically, after selecting your photos, the app will ask for your address, email and redeem code. That's where you enter in my code, but I think you can only get one free photo per email. So what you can do, if you own multiple email addresses, is keep on reusing this code for each of your separate email accounts. 
Whilst you're at it, why not have some fun ordering your own photos and spreading your own code?

oh! and if you are the proud owner of a samsung phone, you can print those photos onto phone cases
and have a customised case.

Hey guys,

I'm soo done. I'm done with the stress
I've literally just started the tough part of it and I'm winging. What scares me the most is knowing that the stress only gets worse as you go along. It's literally the eighth day back at school and I'm already being swarmed with a tonne of homework, which, accompanied by my really bad procrastination is a huge recipe for disaster.

 If, like me, you have a really bad procrastination problem and you need to get over it, try looking at an article by Harpers Bazaar about 'How to stop procrastination'. It's literally the only reason why I'm getting this up on time

I'm literally watching a rerun of movies instead of starting up on my homework, right now I think I've passed the stage in which I need tips and I've entered the stage in which I need a miracle.

Bluebirdco tea

Hey guys, 

I'd like to think of myself as a typical Brit. I love drinking tea, in fact, I'd consider myself ato be some sort of tea enthusiast. There was a point in my life, last year, where I only drank tea all day, every day. If i was hungry, cold, thirsty, bored if needed to sleep I;d used to whip up a cup of tea with biscuit and enjoy.

Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis probably already know about the blogger meet-up that I attended late August. For those of you who have never read my blog before (and this is your first time reading one of my posts -welcome) late August, 30th to be precise, I attended a blogger meet-up. If you don't know what this is, or what we do there
any-who, we were given these really cool goody-bags (I'm yet to finish posting reviews on the products) amoung many things in the goody bag was tea by bluebirdco:

I drank about half of the cup before I decided 'why not treat this like ordinary tea and add some milk'. Big mistake. I strongly advise that you read all (every single word) of the instructions provided on the packet of a product. The tea packet clearly stated that no milk was necessary.

 I think I made a video of me pouring in the milk. When I was doing it, I had no idea what the outcome would be because I still hadn't read the full instructions. I felt soo daft.

Above is the teabag. If I recall correctly, its contents consisted real strawberry bits and zesty lemon peel, which was unsurprisingly bursting with lots of flavour. I'm yet to try the other three teabags I've recieved from them, so I'll write separate reviews for each flavour.
If you would like to try out some of their tea for yourself, go to
