Introducing ScaredyBrat Wigs!

Leave a Comment

I feel like I've been trying to write this blog post for the last eight thousand years but I keep getting terribly distracted with my apparently hectic lifestyle (ie:- I've been working non-stop!!! Damn it Christmas!!) 

If you don't follow me on social media - firstly, why the heck not?! I have been posting like a mad woman about the wonderful, fabulous ScaredyBrat wigs, which I am now a promoter for! Official Scaredy Brat right over here. I've been a hair extension wearer for what feels like my whole life, and I'm a massive fan of hair pieces, but I thought 'it's time to start wearing wigs'. 

I was sent the gorgeous Dahlia wig which is a long dark brown/black shade that fades out into a stunning chestnut brown colour. It is a synthetic wig, but you would never be able to tell as it looks and feels so much like real hair. I know that when people think about wigs they think about those really awful Halloween type of wigs that are just shoved in a packet and come out all knotty and hard to wear - but this is absolutely nothing like that. It's such good quality and it fits amazingly on my teeny tiny head. It really is a stunning piece and I've been wearing it constantly since it arrived at my doorstep. I love the colour so much that I've actually considered dying my hair back to a dark brown colour. The Dahlia wig is only £25.99 as well - an absolute bargain. 

As you can see, I have nothing but love for this wig and ScaredyBrat wigs as a whole. I can't wait to start a proper wig collection. I've already started saving my pennies up because I am dying to try a lace front wig...maybe a green one. Oh gosh, I'm so excited.

If you're like me and you LOVE this wig, you can now try to win it on Instagram! ScaredyBrat are always holding amazing competitions for their followers so make sure that you check them out by clicking on the photograph below. Whilst you are there, make sure you check out the other Scaredy Brat ladies because they are all absolutely stunning. You won't regret it!

Coat - River Island


Ohhh look at me taking this so deadly seriously. This is one of my fave kind of outfits. It's one of those 'whatever' outfits, something that you can just throw on without a thought but still look nice. My wardrobe is absolutely full of band tees and Joni jeans, they're pretty much all I wear. I classed up this look with my gorgeous new jacket/coat from River Island and a cute little black bag, which was also from River Island. I don't know about you, but I absolutely love River Island for accessories and jackets, they are always so on trend.

Lush Every Day Essentials

1 comment
Grease Lightning - Spot Treatment
One of my favourite products and a definite must have if you are prone to pesky spots. Grease Lightning is a little miracle in a bottle - actually it's a anti-acne spot corrector gel - but miracle in a bottle sounds much better. I don't really get that many spots, but when I do they are stubborn AF and this is my go-to product to get rid of them. Basically you apply the liquid gel to the spot infected area and let it sink in. You can apply as many times as you like, with as much as you need and just let it do it's thing. It dehydrates the spot and shrinks them down to nothing within a few days. I absolutely adore it. 

Tea Tree Water - Toner Water
A toner for those with super sensitive skin. As I said before, I don't usually get many spots, but I try to keep facial products to a minimum because my skin can become sore and irritated easily - this is why I like to use Lush's Tea Tree Water. It's fantastic for those with oily or troublesome skin as it's anti-bacterial, antiseptic and antifungal. It only has only 6 ingredients, 4 of which are completely natural: Tea Tree Water, Grapefruit Water, Limonene and Juniper Berry. It smells lovely as well, it doesn't have an overwhelming tea tree scent which is great because I am not the biggest fan of that smell. It removes makeup amazingly, even tough eye makeup comes off with this baby. 

Angels On Bare Skin
Angels On Bare Skin is my final Lush Essential. It's a facial cleanser made of all natural ingredients. Firstly let me say that it smells fantastic. It literally smells like food, I just want to eat it every time I open it. The ingredients used in this product create a calming effect on the skin to help to stop spots and irritated areas on your face.  Infact it actually leaves your face feeling hydrated and looking super glowy. The only downside to this is that it is so messy. It's basically a pot of oats and oils, so when you apply it to your face it gets everywhere - but it's so worth it in the long run.

Aesthetically Pleasing

1 comment

This is a bit of a self promo post to be honest, I'm just so so happy with how my Instagram is starting to look. It's so pretty and aesthetically pleasing - if I do say so myself (and I do). I've been using Instagram an awful lot recently, it's becoming a bit of an obsession. It's definitely my favourite way of using social media. I love themed accounts and drooling over delicious looking food! 

I'm always looking for new Instagram accounts to follow, so please feel free to leave your links. I love snooping around people's Instas! 

I'd love if it you'd pop by and follow me on Instagram. Love to you all x

Completely Clueless

5 comments

Jumper - Primark
Skirt - Forever 21

I genuinely feel like I spend half of my life in these boots from Public Desire - they are literally my favourite pair of boots I've ever, ever owned. Especially since everyone told me for months that I'd never wear them. I'm obsessed with knee high/thigh high boots at the moment, they are absolutely perfect for this cold weather we've been having. Nights out are no longer uncomfortable because they keep me toasty warm! 

I suppose during the winter time you are supposed to dress more appropriately, but I can't help myself. I'm definitely going through a 90s Clueless inspired meltdown at the moment. I'm really loving high neck/turtle neck jumpers and have been wearing them with everything, for everything. With this outfit you really can do no wrong, and it can be worn during the day or for a night out. My motto is to always keep things comfortable and that's exactly what this outfit does.

An Apology - The I'm Back Post

2 comments

So just over a month ago, I wrote a long blog post about quitting blogging - if you haven't read it you can read it here. I wanted to write the post because I had a lot on my mind, about the blogging community and about how I felt like I no longer belonged in the blogosphere. This last month has been an eye opener for me, I've had email after email from amazing people saying "good luck" or "come back" which has meant the absolute world to me. I've also spoke to so many people - some of them unexpected - about this blog and they have had nothing but good things to say about it. One girl (who is a friend of a friend) came up to me on a night out and told me that she'd read my blog and that I had done a brave thing leaving it behind. Which I appreciated, but then I started to think...it's not a brave thing at all. It's a cowardly thing to do, to give up on something just because sometimes it frustrates you. 4 years of my life down the drain and all because I was feeling upset and moany. I am better than that. Poptarts Beauty is better than that. 

I know that I have said it before but I do really mean it this time - Poptarts Beauty is back. And it's going to be better than ever. I've already started deciding on posts and participating in photoshoots. I'm going to have a proper plan this time, I won't just blog whenever I feel like it. It will be a regular thing and I promise to work hard - not just for you. but for myself.

So I'll leave you with this final thank you, for sticking with me through this last year or so. In fact, thank you for sticking around for 4 whole years. And I'll apologise for being a rubbish blogger and a rubbish friend to the amazing girls I've met online. Things are looking up and it's going to be great. I promise. I just need you to bare with me whilst I get my act together.

A Serious Post About Blogging

2 comments
I don't really know how to start this because it's quite hard to be honest, not just with you, but with myself. It's a subject that for the last year or so has been a bit of a sore subject for me. I started this blogging thing as a casual hobby, something to get me through University. It was something I enjoyed whole-heartedly, I used to rush home from work or from my classes with a bag full of Superdrug's finest makeup products and I'd sit down for hours and hours of blog post writing and social networking with people I considered my equals. I suppose when I started blogging it was an easier time for me - no real commitments, very few friends. Blogging quickly became a job for me, but a job I loved - one where I got to work with some of the greatest of beauty companies. I got to work with my online best friends and I was honestly so, so happy with the blogging community for around 2-3 years.  

Over the last year I have honestly become disheartened with blogging. For those who have been with me since the start, you'll know that I used to blog daily - these days it's hard for me to even write more than five posts a month. I feel lost within a community which at one point I felt wanted me there. But now I can't help but feel like I no longer belong here. Friends who started blogging around the same time as me, have far surpassed me - their blogs becoming more and more popular whilst I allowed my flame to flicker out. My brain registering competition, but not wanting to bother. It should never feel like a competition. If you are doing this for that reason, you're doing it all wrong. 

I wish I knew how to fix it. I wish I knew how to get my blogging mojo back, but no matter what I do and however hard I try, my fingers just don't want to type. It's not even like I don't care about what I write about anymore, because I do. I'm still just as into beauty products, and I'm still keeping up to date with trends. But my desire to report it has gone - after all, what's the point of putting your opinion out there if you feel like nobody will read it anyway? 

At this moment in time, I feel like I have exhausted all of my outputs and I think that I am probably going to take a long break from blogging. Hopefully, one day, something will make me change my mind and I can get back to where I was just over a year ago.

Adidas Superstars

4 comments

For my 24th birthday (oh lordy I am getting old) I asked my wonderful boyfriend Kieron to get me some Adidas Superstars. My obsession with these trainers had gotten out of hand, I was googling photographs and pinning pictures on Instagram for weeks before I knew I was actually going to receive them. 

Adidas Superstars have been around for ages. You might remember them (like I do) from the 90s. If you grew up in the 90s someone you knew would definitely of worn these at one point - in fact I think even my big sister had some at one point. Recently they've become big again due to Pharrell Williams and his collab which has brought Superstars back into the fashion spotlight. 

I really think that these trainers are so versatile, you can wear them with pretty much anything! I like to style mine with ripped jeans and a plain t-shirt for a casual, relaxed look. They look so bad-ass.

What do you think? Do you like Adidas Superstars and the recent 90s trend as much as I do?

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

3 comments


“It’s not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It’s nothing like you’ve experienced before. It’s lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.” – NYX

If I had to choose only one lip product to use for the rest of my whole, entire life I would without a shadow of a doubt pick NYX's Soft Matte Lip Cream. I cannot explain properly just how amazing they are, but I need you to trust me in this. These are legitimately one of the greatest lip products in the world. 

You might have seen my youtube video where I talk about these products a bit but if not, basically, NYX's Soft Matte Lip Creams are a liquid lipstick that glide on like silk but dry with a gorgeous matte finish. 

This product is packaged much like a standard lip-gloss except the applicator is quite a bit smaller and a lot more precise. It has a gorgeous creamy but matte finish when initially applied, but after 5/10 minutes the lip-cream dries and becomes fully matte. The colour almost stains the lips and looks so natural even when wearing darker shades. My only problem with this product is that it does take it's time drying, but once it has finally dried it does not budge. It doesn't smear or stain on your skin, and it stays in place for such a long time. Usually I have to reapply after 3 or 4 hours, depending on whether I've been eating/drinking. 

My favourite part of these lip-creams is the colours and how bright they are. There is so, so much pigmentation in them and they look absolutely stunning on. I have three shades; Amsterdam, Zurich and Copenhagen and I have to say that Copenhagen is my favourite - I cannot explain to you how stunning this purple shade is. It looks amazing on, and is a must have for Autumn. 

Overall I adore NYX's Soft Matte Lip Creams and I will definitely be purchasing the whole collection (eventually). I am lipstick obsessed, but these are just a thousand times better than an average lipstick! Plus they are super cheap as well, as NYX is a drugstore brand. I believe they were only around £8 each. Bargain.

Birthday Wish List!

2 comments

It's crazy to think that in just under 3 weeks I'll be turning 24. It makes me feel so old! As usual, like I do every single year, I have put together a teeny tiny list of things I am loving at the moment. These are things that I'd love to receive as presents or things I intend on buying in this next month with my birthday money and hard earned cash. I'm really loving all of the things on this list, especially the Adidas Superstars and the over the knee chunky boots. AH so funky!

Bourjois Paris Poudre De Riz De Java

2 comments

Real talk, I bought this because...LOOK AT THAT PACKAGING. It's too cute. It's so fancy, I feel so fancy. It's just too much for me. 

Bourjois Poudre de Riz de Java is a loose face powder that is a reinvention of one of their most popular products from 1879.  The original Bourjois Java Rice Powder was designed to lighten the skin and leave it smooth and super silky-soft. It was insanely popular all over the world and in 1897 they sold around 2 million boxes worldwide.

Now we all know, I really love the packaging. It has the same label that was used back in 1897, which I love. It feels like a true classic. The product promises to “light up and smooth the complexion in one step”. It has a light texture and it smells absolutely gorgeous. It has a rose scent which is rare in a setting powder, usually they tend to be scentless. The formula seems to be a bit sparkly when it's in the pot, but on the face you can't really see any sparkle.


This powder definitely does brighten my skin. It's got quite a semi-matte finish that feels light and airy on the skin. It also keeps my foundation in place extremely well so I have started to use it as my go-to setting powder. I really do like this product but have read that it is unfortunately a limited edition for Bourjois' 150th Anniversary, which is sort of annoying because I do not ever want to part with this power. I suppose I'm going to have to buy loads of pots and keep them stored away so I can use it forever - maybe.

NYX Wonder Stick

3 comments

NYX have quickly become one of those brands that I have become absolutely obsessed with. Watching their makeup challenges over the last few weeks - especially Mykie's - Glam&Gore - videos (LOVE HER), it's so great to see how their products can be used and just shows how versatile makeup products can be. Recently I've been loving NYX's Wonder Stick, which is a highlight and contour stick for your face and body. 

This is one of those products that I have been telling everybody about. Anyone who will listen. The other night I kept whipping my Wonder Stick out and giving everyone little makeovers. That's how much I love this product. 

NYX's Wonder Stick is an all in one highlighting and contouring device. One side is the contouring product and the other is a hightlighter. It comes in four shades, neutral - which is a universal shade, light, medium and deep - I used the medium shade as I wanted something that would show up on both my pale skin and when I use fake tan. The shades do seem to run a little on the light side, so I am glad that I went for medium over light or neutral. 


This product is so, so easy to use. There's even a diagram on the outer box packaging that shows you how to use it. Basically you just draw on your face with the contouring stick - so where ever you want cheek bones or shadows, you just draw them on. Then use a brush to blend it all in. Same for the highlighter! It really is that simple, and it really is that effective. The only thing that you really need to know, is how to blend your makeup correctly. 

I loved the contouring stick, it is literally my favourite thing of all time (makeup wise). The texture is so light, the shade matches so well and it's buildable as well, which means I can make certain parts of my face darker if I want to. The highlighter isn't as fantastic but I've still been using it. My main issue with it is the way it feels on my face. It's kind of heavy and a bit sticky. Not only that but the colour isn't that much lighter than my actual skintone, so sometimes it just doesn't show up on my face. It's a bit of a weird one. 


Over all I'm going to give this a big thumbs up, if only for the absolutely brilliant contour side. I have become obsessed with contouring now that I have something that actually works brilliantly. It completely changes your face and I just love tricking people into believing that I actually have cheekbones. It's a great product to use if you are just getting started with contouring and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a convenient and cheap all in one contour product. 

I cannot express enough the love that I have for NYX, everything I have bought from them recently has just been incredible. They've really stepped their game up.

It would be fantastic if you could give me a quick subscribe on youtube as well whilst you're here! I'd really appreciate it x

Wednesday Vlog - Traffic Jam & Trafford Centre

Leave a Comment


I decided today to do a little vlog but as I don't have a proper vlogging camera I ended up using my phone - which may of been a mistake as the quality of this is shocking. I literally cannot win with cameras these days. Anyways sorry it's shakey and a bit slow, but I hope you enjoy it. It was fun to film, particularly the traffic jam section. I went to the Trafford Centre with my lil bro to get him some stuff for when he goes to Uni in September and it was a cuuuute day!
