2015 Reflection & Instagram Round Up

2015 Reflection & Instagram Round Up

I find it so hard to believe that another year is ending; as I've gotten older time just seems to be going by even faster but somehow 2015 as gone by in the blink of an eye. It's pretty safe to say that 2015 has not been my favourite year, in fact it's been pretty shitty. So many things have happened and changed and it's been a bit of a struggle.

Boxing Day Sales | Lush Haul

Boxing Day Sales | Lush Haul

So, blogging everyday in December has gone great hasn't it? I underestimated just how busy i was going to be in terms of running errands, catching up with people, swapping presents and then with work itself, it's well and truly kicked my arse and truth be told amongst all that i just couldn't be bothered spending my rare days off waking up early to take the photos i needed but hey ho, life goes on. I do hope you all had an amazing Christmas though, i was very spoiled and got way more than i expected.

As most of you know Lush as a pretty epic sale come boxing day, all their Christmas stock goes half price and who can resist that? Sadly for me, i was working this Boxing day but my lovely sister went along to Lush and picked up some bits and she's that lovely she picked me up one of everything that she did and more.

Review | Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour

Review | Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour

I really like contouring and whilst I'm still not that great at it, i still love giving it a good go. I've tried a lot of powder options but ever since the release of the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour, I've been intrigued to see if i could achieve better results with a cream contour product.

The Making of Harry Potter | Harry Potter Studio Tour

The Making of Harry Potter | Harry Potter Studio Tour

A few weeks ago, my lovely friend Gem told me i needed to pick a day in December when we could go get my present, as it wasn't something she could physically give to me. I had no idea what my present was and was still left in the dark right up until arriving at the destination. So, I'm sure you can imagine the shock, surprise and excitement of seeing The Harry Potter Studio Tour in front of me.

What's In My Bag?

What's In My Bag?

I love seeing what's in people's bag, they are my favourite posts and youtube videos. It fascinates me to see what people deem their handbag essentials and carry around with them. So seeing as were getting close to Christmas, i thought I'd treat you and show you what's in mine!

Review | Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Review | Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

A while ago, I read a blog review on the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara once that described it as a 'silent staple', one of those products that you don't need but once you have, you don't want to be without. Ever since reading that review, it's been one of those product i often thought about trying so on one of my recent Christmas Shopping trips, i took the plunge and treated myself.

Compared to a lot of people i know, I'm not the most festive of people. Don't get me wrong, i like Christmas but i just don't love it. There are few things about Christmas i do really like though...

Collective Haul | Beauty, Books & Clothes

Collective Haul | Beauty, Books & Clothes

My second haul in less than a week, something is definitely wrong. It's not often that i spend a lot of money on myself but amongst all the christmas shopping I've done these past two weeks, I've managed to pick myself up some cheeky presents too. It only fair though, right?

The Nars And God Created Woman Eyeshadow Palette was a big release for 2013 and it was mention, raved about and talked about pretty much everywhere in blogging world. Now two years later, i finally have my hands on it.

Big Collective Ebay Haul

Big Collective Ebay Haul

I love Ebay and every so often, i have like to have a little browse and see what i can come across. A few weeks ago, i went a little crazy and had a bit of a splurge on a variety of things, as most were coming from Hong Kong they took a while for them all to get here and I've been saving them all so i could do this post so I'm very excited to now being to start using them.

Review | Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boheme

Review | Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boheme

This is my very first Chanel Lipstick - I've had the shade 'Boy' on my wish list for ages so on my way back from Tenerife in October, i decided that the time had finally come to treat myself and get it. However, when i swatched 'Boy' i was super disappointed, it's a lovely nude shade but i found it barely transferred any colour and i just felt that it wasn't worth the money, so after swatching the rest of the range i decided on the shade Boheme and i can safely say I'm pretty happy with my choice.

I have some more goodies from the Born Pretty Store, I've mentioned them a few times on my blog and i was very kindly let me pick some items to receive and share with you. Born Pretty Store is full of affordable make up, nails, and beauty accessories so i took this opportunity to stock up on some make up brushes and false lashes, especially whilst we are heading into party season.

Review | Max Factor Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara

Review | Max Factor Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara

I'm feeling really great and motivated about my blog at the moment, so much so that I've decided to blog everyday in December. I'm not doing 'blogmas' exactly (i really don't like the word blogmas, but i really don't know why) I'm just posting everyday, so expect a mixture of posts; beauty, lifestyle and hopefully some Christmas ones too.

I've actually been trying to avoid getting any more mascaras because I've got a fair few unopened waiting to be loved so I'm trying to work my way through those before trying any others, however when the new Max Factor Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara* came through my letter box, how could i possibly resist.
