Covet Fashion: App Review

Simply put, Covet fashion is kind of a grown up dress-up game, but it is so much cooler than that. The premise of the game is that you enter 'events' and style a look to meet the brief. The looks are then voted for by players of the game. The animated clothes on the game are based on clothes by real designers, making them beautiful and purchasable in real life.

Just by entering you get money, usually $100-$200. There's a daily event that gives $500 upon entry. You use this money to buy clothes for your wardrobe. There's this thing called your closet value (ie, the amount the pieces in your closet are worth). Increasing your closet value unlocks new hair and makeup. If you get 4 out of 5 stars, you win a prize (an item of clothing). This helps increase your closet value.

To enter events you need tickets, 20 of which you get as a daily allowance. You gain more by voting on looks.


Like any app, it's subject to several issues.
It crashes a fair amount, but reopens pretty quickly. It takes up a LOT of memory (the app itself is around 86.6MB but the total data on my phone is 2.4GB), so if you're running a lot of games you might want to think carefully about downloading this.

However, these issues with the game are relatively minor and don't tend to affect the day to day running of the app. Have you ever played on Covet? What did you think? Let me know your thoughts.

Cinderella: Review

Good evening! I was going to wait until tomorrow morning to write this, but I am genuinely too excited! I arrived back home for Easter today, and the first thing mum and I did is watch the first screening on Cinderella.
I am in love.
I think the film was UTTERLY perfect. Like, I don't think I can find a single flaw. Everything was beautiful. The cinematography, the costumes, the make up, the sets and locations. Every cast member was stunning.
Lily James' acting was wonderful. She really was a perfect Cinderella. She was able to be absolutely pure without being, well, annoying! And Richard Madden was a Prince truly worthy of her affection.
We're so used to twists on these tales now that many were unsure about the simplicity of the retelling. But I found it utterly charming. 
There's been a lot in the press about the whole 'waist Photoshop' rumours. I don't believe the waist has been edited at all, the dress is just perfection. And I must confess, as a young woman watching the film, I wasn't thinking, 'oh, look at her tiny waist'. I was thinking, look at the beautiful craftsmanship of that dress. Lily's smile is breathtaking. And the take home messages of courage and kindness are qualities of incredible importance, especially to young girls. 
In short, everything about the film was amazing and I cannot wait until I can see it again.
Have you seen the film yet? Let me know your thoughts.

Love Soph x

And remember, have courage and be kind.

Ten Reasons Why Clubbing Sucks

Okay, I have something to ask. Who actually likes clubbing? Okay, another question. Who goes clubbing sober? And who enjoys it? If you're still answering yes/me, then I'm sure you're a lovely person but we are very different and I cannot understand you at all. Sorry.
Basically, clubbing is pretty sucky and here's 10 (of many, many) reasons why:

1. 11-5AM? They're open at times which do not fit in with the sleeping pattern of modern society.

2. Heat. And sweat. Yes, there are hundreds of people dancing in cramped spaces. But you shouldn't have to leave the club looking like you've just swam the English Channel.

3. Expenses. You have to pay for taxis, entry, drinks, probably a new outfit and probably some awful food from a truck parked up on the side of the road (which has probably given you food poisoning but the alcohol makes you so sick you don't actually notice). One night can cost anything from £10-£500, depending on where you go, what you drink and whether you accidentally brought your credit card with you. Oh, and depending how much you drink, you probably won't remember the night anyway.

4. Cleanliness. Ever heard of it? The amount of times I've walked across a club floor and I've walked out of my shoes is ridiculous. They literally get stuck to the decaying alcohol. 

5. What you're playing isn't music. The drum and bass house white noise thing is only appealing when you are full of alcohol or drugs. And, from what I've seen, even that's not enough. Play songs that are actually popular

6.Chairs. A girl needs a rest when she's gone hardcore when Taylor Swift's finally been played

7.A waste of effort. You spend hours on your hair, makeup, picking an outfit, to spend the evening in darkness and have your makeup slide of your face with sweat within ten minutes

8.Heels hurt. And if your like me and don't wear them, you won't be able to see a thing

9. Sexual Assualt. Guys, if you touch any part of a woman or her clothing without her permission, this is SEXUAL ASSAULT. Stop it. The majority of women can't make it five steps across the dance floor without being touched inappropriately.

10.You can't talk to your friends. You want to spend time with your friends. That's why you've come out with them. But you can't hear a word they're saying. 

What do you hate most about clubbing? Let me know in the comments.

Benefit's Roller Lash Mascara

So today's post is somewhat belated. Like every other beauty blogger, I rushed out to pick up the March edition of Elle when it was released. Not only was my absolute darling Ms. Knightley on the cover, but Benefit had launched their highly speculated Roller Lash mascara in a free sample size. The reason I didn't use it straight away is because I had recently been gifted Soap and Glory's Thick and Fast mascara (see here), and so I sort of forgot I had it. Now I've had the chance to have a play with it, and I thought, given that the full size is now available in stores, that I would share my views.

The wand is slightly curved and the bristles are plastic (which may instantly be of issue to some). I found the mascara really lengthening. It really defines individual lashes as well.
The problem I have with it is that it made my lashes quite straight. I'm quite lucky and have naturally curved lashes, but this mascara sort of uncurves them and makes them as photoed. Some people may like this look, however I prefer more of a curl. But this is the only problem I have.

Benefit are well know for their 'They're Real' Mascara and if I'm honest I think I prefer that mascara to this one, Plus, if I'm being frank, you can get a lot of mascaras in the 'drug store' for cheaper that do a better job. In short, its not my favourite mascara ever, but it does the job well enough.

You can see the before and after photo's above, so you can judge for yourselves. Let me know you're thoughts in the comments below.

By the way, my mole flips because one photo was on my camera and the other on my phone!
