Well hello there m’dear! Another review post for you is presenting itself in my Christmas and Birthday gift haul! A little disclaimer; I’m in no way trying to ‘show off’ as for starters I’ve chosen select items to review of which I believe complement this blog, I’m appreciative of all of my gifts although gifts aren’t the point, it’s the people you have around you. I’m sharing this post as I know many enjoy these types of hauls, as do I, and of course because I’m briefly reviewing these items. No hidden agenda. Now, where were we? If you would like to have a nosy at my fashion, beauty and other exciting treasures then please read on!
MERRY CHRISTMAS! That’s it, it’s officially Christmas Eve and tomorrow we will all be stuffing ourselves silly with a wide range of tasty delights, ripping open wrapping paper to reveal our awaiting gifts and celebrating with loved ones. Today is all about sharing my best wishes with you and dropping in my already experienced holiday events with an outfit of the day and make-up of the day! Read on to join in with the jubilation!
Hello there my beautiful! Today is a pretty simple post, my collection of empty cosmetics! As I’ve been looking for things in my bedroom I keep coming across more and more empty products, not realising just how many there are. Due to it being the end of the year and wanting to start off 2016 with a fresh and tidy room (that will be the day), I figured I’d get this post done before chucking everything away! Please do read on for my opinions on the following products.
Christmas is coming and along with it breeds a multitude of pop up German markets across the country. This happens every year and by some blasphemous occurrence I had still yet to sample the joy in full HD of the delights the Leeds version holds. I have popped into the market in previous years but have never spent much time there or been with more than one person therefore it’s never really held magic to it’s full potential. This year however is different, celebrating something my friends and I like to call ‘Billingsmas’, we all were on our way for a lovely start to the Christmas (or Billingsmas) festivities.
Yes, I’m here again with another cosmetics tag, what can I say, I enjoy them! I were having a peek through El’s blog (ElButlerxox) and came across this little joy which I thought would be fun to do. Whilst on the subject of the lovely El, I recently did a Blogger Interview with her to celebrate the first year of her blogging. This were posted on Friday, along with the answers from some other lovely ladies, and you can view that here!
So I’ve been delving through the archives of many a beauty blogger and recently re-stumbled upon a cosmetics tag from the lovely Louise – Sprinkle Of Glitter! To some, a tag may seem like an easy way out of a ‘proper’ blog post, however many can be both enjoyable and informative and I feel this short but sweet piece also doubles up as a pretty nifty review of sorts taking into consideration these are my ‘most used’ cosmetic items of choice. Without further ado, lets commence!
As we all are aware I’m sure, it were Halloween on Saturday! I felt it only right that I commemorate the occasion with a blog post. I hope you had an amazing and safe night, wherever your evening took you. This year is the first that I actually decided to do something with my make-up therefore were feeling rather excited about the fact. I’ll pop some pictures below, I went to my friend’s Halloween party at her house and all in attendance had a fantastic evening. I did re-use a costume that I’ve had for a few years now (dead schoolgirl), hence why I absolutely NEEDED to do something different make-up wise, I found inspiration in a Shannon Harris tutorial, (https://www.youtube.com/user/shaaanxo) deciding to go for the stitched up mouth look! I felt that I wouldn’t look quite as dead as I wanted therefore also did some extra contouring.
Yesterday evening (Wednesday) I had a wonderful time going for a carvery meal in celebration of a friend’s Birthday. We all went to the Toby Carvery in Horsforth which has delightful food and a lovely atmosphere complete with friendly and attentive staff. I have already been receiving questions on various social media profiles asking where I got different things I were wearing or asking what make-up I used, therefore I thought I’d make a nice little post about just that!
On Tuesday I said I’d be posting twice today due to Monday’s blog post being late, so here is the second post for today and I thought I’d do a tag which incorporates learning a little more about myself whilst still on the subject of beauty! I found this at The Make-Up Honey.
Whilst rummaging around my bedroom for something I stumbled upon a hidden gem! Behold a very old yet very exciting find, a make up palette consisting of powder eye-shadows and blusher!
