HELLO! Sorry i have been a bit vacant for a while I don’t seem to have to headspace to sit and blog at the moment. I know it sounds silly, i do have lots to say but when it comes to it, it all comes out a bit skew-wiff..ya’know? Anyway, i’ve bought quite a few things lately so i thought that would be a good way to get back on the writing wagon..

On Saturday i went to my local charity shop with Roy’s mum to look for a book she’s after. I’ve never thought of looking in charity shops for books before but there are some absolute treasures in there. I bought a couple of girly romance books and then came across  ‘Vogue Guide To: Skin Care, Hair Care & Make-up’ book for 30p and HAD to buy it. It’s from 1981 and has loads of hints and tips for hair, make-up and general skin care. When i’ve had a proper read, i’ll share the tips with you guys!

Also, every now and then i seem to run out of all my make-up at once. I don’t know much about make-up so i usually run into No7 in boots and cry for help and i always end up spending a bomb and coming out of there feeling like i have loads of things i dont know how to use. (See previous blog posts for huge rant earlier in the year!)  But for Christmas last year my mum bought me lots of No7 goodies and one of them was a No7 ‘Stay Perfect’ eye shadow palette with a cute little mirror and i love it.

( L-R: 1) Vivid Violet, 2) Lilac Sky, 3) Island Sea, 4) Comet, 5) Truffle, 6) True Gold 7) Innocence 8) Tender)

I’m in love with the Innocence colour. It’s like a creamy white and goes on really nicely. Also with the two purples i like to put the lighter one in the corner of my eye and the darker one blended off it to make it look kind of funky. I’ll add a picture next time i try it!

Anyway, I went into No7 to see whether they still sold Innocence (as you can see, im running low!) and luckily they did. I was also running low on blusher and i wanted to try a new lipstick because i never really do anything with my lips other than carmex and i think a little bit of lipstick every now and then can just make you feel so sexy and feminine and because i spent over £22, i got a free watch..bargain.

The lipstick is really nice. It is quite red though so i have to tone it down with a couple of kisses to some toilet roll but generally i love it. I have quite big lips anyway so haven’t noticed any serious volume but what i would say is i do have to moisten my lips with balm first just because it kind of dries them out a little bit.

I’ve been looking a lot on YouTube lately and there is a brilliant blogger, i think her name is Lollipop26, and she did a demo with St Moriz fake tan and it looked fab so i popped into TG Hughes and they had it reduced from £3.99 to £2.99 so i picked up some of that to try next time i fancy tanning myself and i’ll do a review.

If you’ve never heard of St Moriz before, its a foam pump self-tan and supposed to be a big rival to St Tropez. I’ve never tried St Tropez but everyone raves about it so i jumped on the wagon for St Moriz. For a full review check out Lollipop26’s YouTube Channel for more information!

SO, that’s all i got! I’m gonna be doing some videos this week so i’ll upload those. One will be a ‘What’s In My Bag’ and the other will be the ‘Top Shoes’ video so watch out for those!

Also, once everyones back from holiday we will do a podcast FOR SURE.

Make sure you subscribe guys!

I think that’s the same lipstick as I have… it’s pretty good at staying on!
Little tip… after applying the lipstick, gently dab some loose powder foundation on top, just as you do on your face to reduce shine. I find it stays on longer and retains a more even colour!
