Recently Read #20 | November

As you can see i've spent most of the month reading on my kindle; i've got quite a few books on there that i really want to get through so i decided to work through those this month. I would have like to have gotten through a couple more this month but i'm still pretty happy that i managed to finish 3 books.

A Christmas Tradition: Homemade Advent Calendar

A Christmas Tradition: Homemade Advent Calendar

Its technically a tradition if you've done it more than once right? Last year, i was talking to my sister about all the Beauty Advent Calendars and saying how much i really loved the idea of them but that the prices were just a bit ridiculous; some of them retail for over £100 and whilst having that kind of money to throw away must be really nice - that £100 buys a good chunk of my Christmas shopping so it's something i could never justify buying for myself.

So we came up with the idea of creating our own advent calendar for each other.

Kat Von D Lock It Concealer and Brightening Powder

Kat Von D Lock It Concealer and Brightening Powder

I picked up the Kat Von D Lock It Concealer and Brightening Powder when i was in London back in September, i bought them on a complete whim after Debenhams didn't have the brand i was originally planning to buy from and seeing as I'd already planned to pick a few Kat Von D items up, i decided to try these two as well. I don't wear these products daily; i tend to wear them mostly for nights out when I'm wearing a full face of make up but I've been testing them out for quite a while now.

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Midnight

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Midnight

A few weeks ago the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in the shade Midnight was doing the rounds on blogs. Being a big fan of matte liquid lipsticks and dark bold shades it only seemed natural that i jumped on the bandwagon to see what all the fuss was about for myself.

Autumnal Lips

Autumnal Lips

Autumn is my favourite season of the year - not only is it beautiful, crisp and cosy but it's also when my favourite lip shades come out. I actually wear these kind of shades all year round but i thought I'd share the ones I'm loving the most right now.

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara

I have another mascara review for you today; a few weeks ago i was very kindly sent the Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara* from Influenster so I've been testing it out over the last few weeks and thought I'd share my thoughts with you here.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

The Nars Sheer Glow Foundation is one that has been well loved and highly praised in the beauty world and it's remained at the very top of my beauty wish list for the longest time but i just never got round to buying it. However, i was determined to treat myself to the hyped up holy grail foundation during my trip to London back in September and finally discover what all the fuss was about!

Monthly Favourites | October

Monthly Favourites | October

This month has been so hectic for me; I've pretty much been working most of the month as I've been covering for other members of staff at work so I've pretty much spent the majority of October there. I've also not worn a lot of make up this month (thanks to my chin explosion) apart from my basic everyday items.
