Let’s Catch Right Up!


Well hello there!

It has been a WHILE! 

Just under a month since I last blogged but it feels like YEARS!

I decided to take some time out as I felt myself losing my ‘blogging mojo’, I find it’s always better to give yourself time to get back to blogging naturally instead of forcing it.

So what have I been up to?

To be honest, not much

I find when Summer ends I go back into my shell to hibernate, stocking up on woolly clothing, coffee and most importantly food.

Talking about food I’ve meaning to shift these last few pounds, my weight loss over the past few years has been great but it’s getting tiring, I’ve been dragging out the last stone and a bit which I want to be rid of before the end of this year, let’s hope I make it! I’ll let you guys know how I get on, I’ve been meaning to create a post on my weight loss journey which I’ll be doing soonish.

In other news, my make up ban lasted all of a month…I don’t even know what to say really!

A month is a long time for me, a reaaaaallly long time.

I’ve been trying to make more use of the products I currently own so I’ve been shopping my stash more often, discovering new products and testing out more advance (for myself anyway) looks, I’ve even been applying lashes which is something I have the most trouble with, yeah I’m still glueing my eyelids to my face, but hey, at least the lashes are on!

If you follow me on Instagram you would’ve seen me upload a few looks during my hiatus which include the following below:

Look 1. 

Iridescent eyeshadow look using Makeup Geek eyeshadows and a bold red lip using Limecrime’s gorgeous Velvetine in Red Velvet.

Look 2. 

Same eyeshadow look as before. Lip colour is Coloured Raine’s Dragenista lipstick.

Look 3. 

Nude and Neutral look with Barry M’s Dazzle Dust in No.53 on the lid, Sleek Pout Paint in Mink on the lips with NYX’s lipgloss in Miami Babe (my favvv lipgloss ever) over that.

Look 4. 

Wearing Ellis Faas Milky Lips in L202 (review coming soon) and an Inglot blush in No.41

Which one is your favourite?

If you would like to see a post/review or video on any of the products used or mentioned above feel free to let me know in the comments below. I’m working on getting more videos out on my YouTube channel which you can subscribe to for make up looks and hauls.

You guys have probably already noticed by now but I have also cut my hurrrr again. I didn’t really think about it, I just went in and told the lovely Andree Marie to cut it all orfffff! 
It has taken me a LOOOONG while to get used to it but I think I’m finally almost there, definitely saves fixing a closure in the morning!

If you look to your right you’ll also see that I recently hit 300 subscribers! AMAZING or what?!

Thank you to all of you who have subbed, who comment and interact with me, I know I say this ALLL the time but I really am grateful! 
Blogging has brought so many positives into my life I can’t even begin to know where to start to let you guys know how much it has helped me… but anyway…let’s save all that good stuff for another post.

New milestones mean new giveaways so I will be launching my 300 subscriber giveaway in the next few weeks including loadsa fab beauty goods so stay tuned, you may be winning some make up goodies for Christmas! 😉


Well, this was a long one but I’ve never been one to keep things short and sweet and to be honest I just felt like typing and catching up with you guys!

Hope your all well and stay tuned for more posts coming up in the next few weeks

Hugs and Kisses!

    I personally don't think the blue one does you any justice but the red on is right on the money. Its gorgeous and suits you really well.


    • November 6, 2013 / 10:43

      I think I should have gone in with a darker lip pencil to make the blue look less one dimensional but I'm glad your liking the red, the LimeCrime Velvetine is a winner!
