Mini Poundland Beauty Haul

And by mini, I mean three items...

The other day while having a little browse around town, I ended up in Poundland with my Dad and spotted the beauty stand. I've seen it there for a year or so now, but I'd never actually paid it any attention, as it's usually empty! Or things have been opened and smeared about for swatch tests...

This time wasn't much different, but there were a handful of items still untouched and in the right place on the display, so I picked up two beauty bits and a set of nail tools!

For £3, this is probably the cheapest haul I've done for a long time! I've already used the nail tools, and I love them! Plus with the fancy marble effect, they're super Insta and Pinterest for us budding bloggers!

The powder is really good quality, and I've used it a few times so far - it's something that I can buy again and again. I've yet to try the foundation, but when I do, I'll review it to see how well it holds up with my skin type and tone.

Have you tried any of the beauty items from Poundland before? If so, let me know what you thought of them and which ones I should try! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Belle | Disney Inspired Lookbook

I've decided to do a set of Disney Inspired Lookbooks - all inspired by the Princesses - in the run up to my Florida holiday this year! Last week I created a new Ariel look, and now it's time for this week's new Princess!

I am obsessed with the book shaped Beauty and the Beast bag from this look!! What part of the look is your favourite, and who is your fave Disney Princess? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Most Underrated Disney Movie

There's a lot of movies that Disney have done that I don't feel are loved too much universally. It's not many, and it's mainly a few of the classics that slipped through the net over the years. So which Disney movie do I feel is the most underrated?

Basil the Great Mouse Detective.

This film was simultaneously the best and scariest film I watched when I was a kid. By the time I was 8, it was no longer scary to me, and it became a fave. I watched it so much with my sister that we drove Mum mad. Over and over, each day until the VHS tape started skipping little bits here and there.

It was released in 1986, so 6 years before I was even born! I have no idea when I first watched it, who showed it to me, or how old I was. But I remember watching it a lot before school back in the 90's, so I remember being about 4/5 years old when the obsession began.

I loved little Olivia, and her dad the toy maker. I was terrified by Ratigan and Fidget - the latter gave me nightmares for ages - but I still insisted on watching it repeatedly. It wasn't until I was a pre-teen that I realised it was loosely based on Sherlock Holmes, which just made me love it even more.

I recently bought it on DVD and have been reliving my childhood again!

What was your fave Disney movie as a child, and which Disney movie do you think is seriously underrated? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

5 Awesome Places To Eat In Cornwall

Cornwall is like my second home. I've been every year since I was 11 months old, bar 2 years. Sadly can't afford to go this year as well as the Florida trip, so I'm having to miss a third occasion!

Cornwall is a place that is always so calming to me. Lots of countryside, beaches, clean air and quaint little seaside towns. Along with all the lush countryside, there are a plethora of places to eat - and as someone who has ate in like 90% in Cornwall, I can say I've tried a lot!

These five places are ones myself and the family visit each time we go on holiday there, and I've yet to be disappointed in a single meal from any of these places.

Fort Inn, Newquay

Just around the far end of the high street, and on the way to Fistral Beach and the Headland Hotel, this pub/restaurant is perfect for lunch and dinner. It gets very busy, very quickly between 12 and 2 in the afternoon, so getting there a little early is wise!

They have a wide range of foods - my dad is a fan of their steak pies, and my sister loves their cheese sandwiches - and it's always a big portion, so you won't be hungry. Above is my fave meal at the Fort Inn... My trusty chicken and bacon caesar salad!

The White House, Truro

No, not where Trump resides... Above is another chicken and bacon caesar salad, which again, I have each time we go here. We usually eat here 2-3 times each holiday, as it's on the way home from a few locations so is easy to access. They have a lovely roast dinner buffets on Sundays, and there's a couple of large pool tables and fruit money machines to play on!

Golden Guinea, Looe

We've been eating here every year we've gone to Cornwall during our Looe visits. They have a good range of dinners on offer, but me and Dad religiously have their roast dinners as they're sooooooooo yummy! Above is a nice beef dinner, which is delicious and a nice serving of veggies when you've had nothing but junk food all holiday!

Slades House Country Inn, Wadebridge

This pub is a new fave from a few years ago! We drove past it one day and Dad made it his mission to go back for food one afternoon. We were not disappointed! The staff were super friendly, and the owner was having a chat with a load of the customers, which was a lovely touch to the atmosphere! The portions are massive here, and the burger and chips I had above, were only half consumed!

My Dad and Grandad both had super large cod and chips which took them nearly 30 minutes to polish off, so you could easily split some meals between two people.

King Arthur's Arms, Tintagel

Ahh the new fave! This is one we sadly can't go back to all that often as it's very out of the way for us to get to! Where we stay is a while away from Tintagel, and though there isn't a great deal to do there, this pub is honestly worth the trip. Tintagel is the supposed home area of King Arthur and Merlin, so there are a lot of visitors there each year, and the pub is named after the famous King!

There's free WIFI, which is always a bonus, and the food is amazing. I had this beauty of a Ploughmans salad when we went the first time, and it was the best dinner I had the whole holiday!

So those are my fave places to dine in Cornwall when on holiday! If you've been to Cornwall, let me know your fave places to go, as I'd love to try them out! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
