I can’t believe just how quick these weeks are going. Best laid plans to get jobs completed have been flung to the side and I’m finding myself fighting between getting an early night or staying up just half an hour longer to finish a task. Bed is winning, by the way. Then again, it always does. Sitting my work exams this week has caused me to force myself into a routine. A routine which although good for some, isn’t so good for me. I’ve had to meal plan, lunch plan, outfit plan, sleep plan and choosing which Eyeshadow palette to…

It’s not Christmas without seeing something from Soap and Glory under the tree is it? I have so much when it comes to S&G that I don’t think I will ever manage to get through it all, but I’m giving it a damn good try. I think I’m still working on my haul from last Christmas. However, I’m really not sure just how I’ve managed to use up all of my 500ml bottles of body wash leaving myself with no Foam Call. Sad times indeed. To kick start the Christmas celebrations, I was kindly invited along to one of my…

Shopping for presents, whether it be Christmas or otherwise, is quite a lengthy process for me. Finding the perfect gift takes time. It has to be right, and something that will be appreciated. It doesn’t need to be an occasion for me to buy a gift for someone. It could just be ‘just because’. A few weeks ago, a rather large box turned up at my house that was totally unexpected. Upon opening it, I nearly cried because inside was a gift that was not only so thoughtful, but so perfect for me, and it was ‘just because’. Just Because.…

For some reason, I seem to have set myself up with a little tradition each December. Aside from the Christmas tree decorating, the present wrapping and the trips to the Christmas markets, I like to buy certain brands Holiday gift sets. I’ve always said that it’s not Christmas without Soap & Glory, a bit similar to how it wouldn’t be Christmas without seeing the Coca Cola truck. It’s now not Christmas without getting newness from the whimsical Too Faced and the ever so sophisticated Marc Beauty by Marc Jacobs. Having only been on the shelves since 2013, Marc Beauty was…

Having spent the last few weeks under the illusion that I was organised for my Christmas content, I have come to the conclusion that I really am not. At all. I’m slightly worried at just how much I have to do and when I’m supposed to do it. Eek. Ah well, as a consistent blogger, I’m almost certain that I will keep on top of things, in between going to work and having a social life. Today I am bringing to you a set that would make a perfect gift for a brow loving lady, or as a treat to…

Nothing says Christmas more than a new limited edition Too Faced set and this year is no different. I’ve not had the opportunity to pick up the Sephora exclusive, however there is still time. Last year was centred around the Grand Palais and the Sephora exclusive was an incredible set and great value for money. The year before was the whimsical La Belle Carousel, probably one of the most beautiful sets I’ve seen. Christmas in New York is the theme of Too Faced’s Christmas collection for 2016 and the three sets that are available are The Christmas Shop (exclusive to…

Well, would you look at that. It’s December, and it’s time for Blogmas 2016. Blogmas means blogging every day in December, and although generally as a rule, I usually blog daily, December is different. Believe me when I say weeks and weeks of planning has gone into Decembers content and although it feels like I was telling myself it was too soon at one point, it’s soon crept up. Over the next four weeks, I am going to try and steer away from past Blogmas posts such as gift guide round ups, and focus more on my home, lifestyle, travel…

I actually cannot believe that today is the last day of November. Where this year has gone, I simply do not know. 2016 hasn’t been a particularly brilliant year and we’ve seen a lot of changes happen over the last eleven months. I suppose I’m reflecting back over the year now as I have all my content planned to celebrate the festive period and I don’t think that a reflection on the past has been brought to my forefront of my mind until I sat down and started typing away. It’s a bit of an unusual post from me today.…

One of the most hyped up palettes in the history of hyped up palettes has to be the Morphe 35O. Not only is it forever out of stock, but it’s like a race against time to get your hands on one when the limited amount of stock is re-released on beauty emporiums Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty. I’ve had hold of the Morphe 35O palette since mid summer, where a casual browse led to a small purchase and I’ve still not had chance to use it properly. Blogger problems – it needed photographing before I could stick my mucky fingers…

Back in 2008, the world went crazy for the newly launched HD Brows, the brainchild of Nilam Patel. A service that tended to your brows using a seven step system for perfect arches and a beautiful power brow. Alongside the HD brow service, a small amount of HD Brow branded products were available to help with keeping brows in check, and to make them look amazing. Fast forward to 2014 and HD Brows exploded into the beauty world with their range of makeup before re-branding into High Definition, a beauty brand that screams luxury and quality. I’ve been playing around…

Oh Urban Decay, you are knocking it out of the park with your make up releases. This year has seen some amazing collaborations and launches, including the gorgeous Alice in Wonderland palette and lipsticks, as well as the huge 100 shade strong Vice lipstick line. The release of the Vice XXL Reloaded palette featuring original shades from the companys 20 year history has made me reminisce to my youth whilst the brand new Vice Vintage lipsticks are giving me serious 90s vibes. One of the newer releases has been the Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation, and it’s been a game…
