Steppin' into Spring with Pastels

Spring is just around the corner. Here in Scotland, I've have been noticing a lot more sunshine and warm weather. Wildflowers are popping up left, right and centre! I've started moving away from my darker burgundies and chocolates and making the effort to reach for brighter, lighter tones. Whenever the season changes I feel the urge to buy new nail polish; like my transformation from winter to spring, starts with my nails.

Boxing Day Sale Lush Haul

I'm a big fan of the Lush Boxing Day sale, it's the one day each year when I buy the majority of my products to last the rest of the year. Everyone knows that to get the best pick of the sale you have to go to the stores opening, which can get a bit crazy. Now, I could not get to the Lush sale personally, my mum kindly did my shopping for me, but supposedly my local shop was a bit crazy. Bless the hearts of all those Lush employees who have the patience of saints. I know it's a bit late because Boxing Day was over two weeks ago; I debated whether to still post this.  I'm still posting this because I think it would be good to talk about what I picked and why.

My Top 5 Winter Lipsticks

Let me start by stating: I love Winter! The chunky knits, tartan blanket scarves, and oodles of hot chocolate become my new norm. Christmas preparations come into full swing and everyone becomes super festive.

When I think of what type of lipstick I typically gravitate towards during Winter, I see deep dark reds, rich berry tones, and dark nudes. There are five lipsticks in particular that I have found myself reaching for more during the current and past Winters. And they're all tried and tested, nothing brand new or just discovered.

First Ever Colourpop Haul!

I have been wishing and wishing to try some Colourpop goodies since I first started this blog three years ago! I just struggled with the idea of placing a large order and then getting crazy customs fees on top of that. Not to mention they only started shipping to the Uk earlier this year! So, I finally decided to bit the bullet and place an order. I decided to place a big order and have it shipped to my Disney World hotel during my holiday last month. My Disney World trip was a joint present for my university graduation and 24th birthday, so what was a little more splurge?

October Monthly Beauty Favourites

It's November!! Halloween has been and gone, and now it's full steam ahead to Christmas. I'm going on my annual Christmas shopping trip with my mum on Saturday! Pray for the souls of all us retail workers. I've already had a few soul destroying shifts with a six-foot Santa animatronic blaring out the Christmas jingles, and that was before Halloween! 

Have I Finally Found my Perfect NUDE?!

If you are a regular reader of my blog then you will know I've constantly been on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick. I have struggled to find that ultimate perfect nude lipstick, the one that will be such a good colour for my pale skin that I can just wear it with anything. I finally think I have found it!

A Different Take on The Maybelline Color Tattoo?!

I don't know about you guys but I am obsessed with the Maybelline Color Tattoos! Quite often during the summer I will just pop some of the On and On Bronze onto my lids and I will be good to go. When I was on a last minute dash to Walgreens the day before my flight home from Florida, I spotted some of the Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chromes hidden on a bottom shelf at the BACK of the beauty aisles. I was so excited that it flew into my basket.

Sephora Tarte Birthday Gift

The free birthday gift that Sephora offers to it's Beauty Insiders is one of my favourite perks. Whenever I'm in America around the month of my birthday I always make sure to pick it up. This year I was actually over the allotted time that Sephora give you to pick it up, however the nice lady at Sephora still let me have mine.
