Eyelashes used to completely terrify me, however since mastering the art of applying them I am full of love for them and literally want to wear them everyday. Despite my new found love of lashes I don't actually own all that many. Threads is a new brand coming to the UK which is available online and in store at Harvey Nichols.

Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold

Charlotte Tilbury originally released the Bar of Gold back in 2013, and to be perfectly honest her name meant nothing to me back then, so I missed that entire craze. However it must of gone down a storm as it's now been realised again, and I believe it's now back for good and part of the permanent range. I'm a highlighter fiend so I'm more than happy to add another one to my collection, and this tops them all.

The Charlotte Tilbury Additions

I feel like every beauty blogger, if not every girl dreams of owning the entirety of the Charlotte Tilbury website. It's still on my list to visit the Covent Garden store, it looks beautiful and the kind of place you could spend hours browsing, and indulging yourself into the world of beautifully packaged, art deco style, high quality, dreamy makeup. I was treated by a group of friends for my birthday too two pieces of pure luxury. Despite not being quite as obsessed with makeup as myself, they picked the perfect two for me and I am utterly obsessed with them both.

In terms of lipstick you can't get much more luxury than Tom Ford. Beautifully packaged, pretty perfect formula and more than enough shades to choose from, if your ever in need of a present for a beauty lover, or an extra special treat for yourself Tom Ford is the place to go. I was more than over excited as I unwrapped this beautiful lipstick on my birthday, it has now taken the crown as one of the most treasured makeup pieces. Probably also one of the most photogenic pieces of makeup, so be warned for a lot of photos coming up.

Makeup Geek Collection & Personalised Palettes with Crowd Colour

Makeup Geek Collection & Personalised Palettes with Crowd Colour

 Makeup Geek is literally my new obsession, I mean step over MAC but you have been completely and utterly replaced. Well, in the eyshadow department. For half the price, and an admirably big shade range they really are rivaling MAC. In my first haul post, I stupidly forgot to order a Z palette, however I now have no need for a Z palette because I have my very own personalised, yes personalised, magnetic palette from Crowd Colour. The perfect alternative to a Z palette, with the added bonus of any design you like and a mirror.

Luxury Coloured Core Business Cards

First impressions always count. As my blog has grown, I have wanted to share it with people and talk about it more (cheeky self promo here and there). You want people to remember your blog, to check it out when they get home and along with the fact that my name is quite tricky to spell, most people would need to write it down, otherwise there is no chance they would find it once they get the chance. This is where a set of business cards come in handy, something to give them to keep which will jog their memory later on, with the added bonus of all the information they need being right in front of them. However there are so many business cards out there, and people trying to be different making your business cards stand out, without being anything to wild or inconvenient may seem challenging- oddly shaped business cards will always be going in the bin.  Aura Print have designed these coloured core business cards, the perfect classy minimal way to get yourself noticed.

The Blogging Pressures, Striving for Perfection & Honesty

The Blogging Pressures, Striving for Perfection & Honesty
Tuesday, 15 March 2016
Read post
Blogging wise, this year has been a bit of a mess. Starting last year in early December where things didn't really go to plan, despite hours of planning and organising for blogmas things just did not materialise. It just goes to show that no matter how well organised things may be, there is still an element of unknown which could crop up at any moment. This year has not been very consistent, in terms of the amount of posts and quality of posts.

Soap and Glory Righteous Butter Review

Soap and Glory Righteous Butter Review
Saturday, 12 March 2016
Read post
Soap and Glory is a much loved brand for their skincare, bath and body products as well as their makeup range. Exclusive to Boots, they have a huge range of products for every need in all of their ranges. Nobody likes that sticky feeling after moisturising, and feeling like you need to stand around for ten minutes flapping your arms while trying to encourage a moisturiser to sink in. It's for this reason that I rarely used to do a full body moisturise regularly, but something which is really important in keeping your skin in the best condition. Soap and Glory Righteous Butter is a full on body moisturiser, which sinks in and leaves your skin feeling so soft and replenished.

I Can Literally Do Anything

I Can Literally Do Anything
Tuesday, 8 March 2016
Read post

My career options are something which I have never really spoken about on my blog, something I never wanted to publicly share. Not because it was particularly embarrassing, or something which had to be kept secret but more because it wasn't guaranteed and what if I didn't get in? It's hard enough having to explain to just about every friend of the family that although you said that's what you wanted to do, you can't because you weren't excepted.

Although I don't have a daughter, or any children or do I plan on having any soon. With Mother's Day tomorrow I thought I would share a list of things which I have seen floating about pinterest, which I have then adapted and added things to. It's one of those things which I just read and thought 'yes' and decided to share it with you all, some food for thought.

The Four Product Face

The Four Product Face

Read post
Everyone has those days when although its not exactly a makeup free day, its still not really a makeup kinda day. When you need to go somewhere, but really can't be bothered with a full face of makeup or are in a massive rush. In all honestly I have been wearing this makeup a lot more regularly than I would imagine for someone who loves makeup. I'm usually no makeup, or full face their really is no in between for me, except now this.
