By the way, how cute is that font though….
So after a couple of weeks away from my laptop and the blogging arena, I am back and ready to go on at you all about the things I have been loving/have been my favourite/have been at the forefront of my periphery most recently.
This is pretty mixed, it’s not all make up *surprised?!*, I thought I’d round up my favourites as I bet there will be something on this list you’ll love too :).
- CUTE PYJAMAS:
The print that you see behind the purple artwork above is actually my newest pair of pyjamas. These are from H&M and they are the sweetest pyjamas ever – it’s a set with a long sleeved slouchy top and a pair of elasticated shorts. The print has all things from cakes to stars to pizza to CACTI. CACTI, YOU KNOW.
*sorry I think these are in store only, I’ve had a look online and they aren’t there :(*
2. EASY CONTOURING:
I’m going to do a more in depth blog post on this so keep your peepers peeled…but I have been loving absolute idiot proof contouring. If you’ve ever read my blog before you will know I have a face as perfectly spherical as a 2p coin (I chose 2p as it’s a bit more moon face-y than a 1p). Thus, I need something ridiculously simple in order to provide some much needed definition. Cue the Maybelline Master V Contouring Stick which costs hardly anything for something that can create such definition in a little sweepy blendy motion. It’s so easy and I’ll be doing a post to show you how I use it!
3. MASCARAS THAT DON’T GET CEMENTED TO YOUR LASHES:
I have been a lover of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara for a good 2 years or so, but since purchasing a new one I swear they have changed the formula or something because I’m finding it a nightmare to get off. Its definitely not a waterproof version that I have so I don’t know what they’ve done to it lol. Instead I’ve been reaching for the Too Faced Better Than Sex on a daily basis as this is lovely to use and comes off really quickly. You can watch my Youtube review of this mascara here!
4. BEAUTY SUBSCRIPTION BOXES:
Namely, my Birchbox subscription! To briefly explain, it costs £12.95 per month, which covers P&P as well and you get an assortment of sample sized beauty/skincare products, with an odd full size version thrown in in some months! The boxes are beautiful and are perfect for storing your little beauty gems afterwards and I’ve been loving it. You can watch my unboxing of the June Birchbox by clicking here :).
5. EYE CREAMS TO PREPARE FOR WHEN YOU’RE 45 AND WRINKLY:
I don’t know if I’ll be wrinkly at 45, but it’s likely. Very likely, I’m so god damn smiley.
This Origins GinZing Eye Cream definitely feels like it’s doing good to prepare for that time. It’s great under make up as I’m sure it contains light reflecting pigments (but it’s not glittery) it just gives a lovely radiant glow! It’s a bit more pricey but remember, your 45 year old self may thank you in the long run…
There are my 5 favourite things I’m loving at the moment!
I hope you enjoyed this post, leave me a comment on the thing you like the most (or the least, for that matter)!
Apologies for the hiatus 🙂
Lots of love,
