Rather than doing a December favourites, I thought I’d do a general round-up of my year and share some of the lovely things that happened to me in 2016 (most of them blog-related!) 🙂
We’re one day away from December. This is not a drill. Party season is pretty much here; those awkward office parties where someone snogs Tim from accounts, the New Year’s Eve parties that are exactly the same every year but you go anyway in the hopes that this year will be different and you won’t end up in the kebab shop where all the staff know your name and you only seem to be wearing one shoe.
Wherever you’re going this festive season, my five must-have party products will get you looking and feeling your best. Even if it does rain and Sandra from HR throws up in the new expensive bag you got for Christmas.
Because I’m still pretty new to experimenting with makeup, I somehow seem to own pretty much every eyeliner type there is; I have gel, pencil, liquid and pen eyeliners. If you can name it, I’ve got it and tried it because I’m still searching for that one eyeliner I can use easily without getting frustrated because it’s coming out wrong.
Some I’ve loved and some I’ve really hated. Maybe one day I’ll do a post on the ones I really didn’t like and why.
I don’t know about you, but I’m so crap at receiving gift cards and not remembering to put them in my purse or then remembering to use them! My parents got me a book voucher for my birthday. In August. I also got a Boots gift card from my work colleagues when I left in December!
I was in town getting my hair cut on Saturday and finally remembered to take my gift cards with me, so I went on a mission to buy some things I’ve been wanting for ages!
You may have seen my recent post about how much my day time look costs which you can find here if you haven’t read it yet. Following on from that, this post is about how much my evening look costs!
Ι recently saw this post on Mallow Beauty and thought it was a really interesting concept. You essentially put on the makeup you’d normally wear and add up how much all the products cost! I’m going to guess mine at £20 😛
I can’t believe September is nearly over 🙁 I do love autumn/winter, especially as it’s when J and I got together 🙂 but I’m not a fan of dark mornings and freezing my arse off at bus stops in the pouring rain (J takes our car to work) 🙁 Anyway, here’s what I’ve been loving this month <3
I was recently approached by Born Pretty Store* to see if I wanted to review some of their products. I was a little apprehensive, only because my blog is still so new and I thought there’d been a mistake! It turned out that they really did want me to try out their products and so promptly sent me my first item. I was happy to find that despite coming from Singapore, delivery only took around 10 days. I thought it would take a lot longer!
These are the reviews of the rest of the products I bought last Saturday. You can read the original post here!
