barrier reef.. or not

Hey y'all!! I am super duper pleased with how lovely y'all are with the commenting and following, this blog is already a gizallion times more popular than my old blog!! Ahhh!! :D

Here comes a review (of sorts) of my one of my most favouritest products ever!!

Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner

Sigh... As a girl with fairly thin and fair hair I find conditioners you use in the shower way too heavy and that they drag my hair down. So for about the last three years I've been using leave-in conditioner, just whatever brand my mum would pick up during the weekly shop. And then one week she brought home Aussie and ever since its been the only conditioner for me! It smells so lovely and takes care of my hair so well... And for £3.67 from Boots it's a steal! I got really over protective of mine when at camp, because of the sun. I left my suncream, shampoo etc in Spain or gave to friends who were staying the next week but this i something I refused to abandon! Basically GO and BUY my lovely readers and no this is not a sponsered post, hell who'd sponser me?!

Love you all and really should be doing something school related but blogging and Pottermore are calling!! :)

Wings (MUOTD)

This is the makeup look I am currently sporting - very pleased with it!  I'm a big lover of eye looks, rather than using lots of blush or lippie. I followed MeghanRosette's Junior Year Tutorial as I've just started an equivalent of Junior Year and was like "might aswell".. I think y'all have gathered that I'm obsessed with Meghan, if you follow me on twitter you'll know that I pretty much retweet everything she tweets....

For the look I used my Natural Collection Duo in Mocha/Latte (Latte as a base) before winging my eyes with Avon Cosmetics liquid eyeliner. To make sure the eyeliner stayed put all day (as it has) I used the black eyeshadow in my Ruby & Millie Perfect Eyes Palette, also rimmed my bottom lashes in a Natural Collection eyepencil before using Avon's SuperMagnify Mascara in black. For my skin I applied my Witch Medicated Concealer in 01 Natural and my Natural Collection CoverUp Cream in Fair. I then dusted my entire face with Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 003 Peach Glow. For my lips I applied Clinque Superbalm Mosturizing Gloss in 09 Currant.

On a completely different note - I am a RAVENCLAW!! So incredibly pleased... Exactly what I was hoping for.. Feel free to leave your PotterMore usernames in a comment...

OOTD 001

Cardie - New Look, Vest - Zara, Skirt - H&M

Espadrielles - New Look

First Outfit of the day ever, woop!! This morning I went out shopping with the familia and managed to finally get one of friend's birthday presents, phew.. Apart from that I bought a belt and got a Costa Iced Mocha which my eleven year old sister took one sip of and hated, very amused at that considering how she's been moaning about trying coffee. Surprisingly sunny at the moment and I went for a lovely little walk to my old primary. Going to enjoy the sunshine and lack of homework by reading and watching youtube videos.. Obsessed with Meghan Rosette and if you have never watched her then go watch her right now!! I command you!!

The Thrills of Being Sixteen

So today is Friday, well done Captain Obvious, which means my first week (okay 3 days) of school are over!! Longest three days ever but now on a Friday my school finishes at ten past one! This means that now at forty two minutes past five I have finished all my homework!

I look thrilled right?? (in a spanish uni hoodie btw)

And know you know why...

My lovely chemistry homework, such fun already.. I hope you picked up on my sarcasm there! ^^ On a lighter note I managed to score One Night Only tickets, so freaking hyper! Eeep!! Just started reading One Day by David Nicholls (you can see it sitting on my awesome IKEA desk above, serious IKEA addiction alert)! All I have to say is that it is AMAZING! Reading it makes me want to travel after uni so much, not before as I dont want to take a gap year but definitely after! The World is my freaking oyster...

Hoping to do a fashion/beauty post tomorrow so see y'all then

This is pretty much the music that I have been listening to constantly lately... My ipod classic has been feeling much love and has barely left my sidethis summer apart from when I was at camp, don't wanna be antisocial you know...

002. Human by Darren Criss aka my future husband
003. Back to December by Taylor Swift
004. Norgaard by The Vaccines
005. Say You Don't Want It by One Night Only

Y'all can listen to my playlist, on another musical note check out ents24 as a way to find gigs. Found that One Night Only are playing near me in November - fingers crossed I can get tickets...


Howdy y'all... and yes I am southern (kinda, just not American but oh well) Welcome to my blog, Converse and Chords named so because I love my converse and well am attempting to learn guitar. I'm Catte, sixteen and all that jazz... I'm sure y'all are riveted by my awesome intro, am I right? Down to business... This blog is basically the story of my life at the moment; expect music, books, cooking, school, fashion and makeup... Not an expert in any of the above, just making that clear now so y'all don't get dissapointed. Check out my twitter at @converse_chords or @charlieheart6
