MAC Japanese Maple

I upped my photo game with this post.. Oh yeah! When I take my time with photos, I actually get somewhere, I'm just trying to find the balance I think.
ANYWAY, meet MAC Japanese Maple, the new love of my life in nude lipstick form. I am quite fair so all you fair ladies will know that it's not the easiest to find a lipstick that actually looks nude and not too pink or too brown. (I've decided I want a 'browner' lipstick now, I'm indecisive!)

Makeup Revolution Iconic 1 Palette

So it would be right if Makeup Rev weren't coming out with stunning palettes, there would have to be  something wrong with the world. They have once again, come out with a completly affordable, well pigmented product that you can create so many looks from.

L'Oreal The Brush Contest - I MADE THE TOP 50!

Hello Lovelies!

So I randomly decided that I should enter the L'Oreal The Brush Contest and I actually got through to the Top 50 Public vote!!
I'm shocked to say the least.
I love makeup (as its clearly obvious) and I wasn't sure if I should do it but with a bit of peer pressure from Matt (the BF) and Lindsay (twitter - @WhatLindsBought) I decided to man up and do it and now this has happened!
I can pick so many faults with this video and I know I shouldn't as it was my first ever video but the liner at the end is fixed from the state it was in some of the clips and I can see lash glue which angers me so much! and breathe. Anyway.. 
I am feeling so overwhelmed by the support everyone has shown me today, I really love you guys!!

The Willow Foundation

I'm one of these people who wants to do good and help out charities and foundations on the amazing work that they do but never actually get involved and thats my biggest flaw, so when Beth at Beauty In Beta told me about the work she does with an amazing foundation called The Willow Foundation, I had to share the good work that they do.

1st Bloggiversary

Wow.. One year since I decided that the extreme love I have for makeup and cosmetics had to be shared. I cannot believe how far I've come, from being a nobody to having nearly 1,600 Twitter followers, just under 700 Bloglovin followers and over 700 Instagram followers. I am so thankful to everyone who follows me and takes the time to read my stupid posts where I ramble on. 
I've learnt a lot over the past year. I've learnt that my organisation skills are AWFUL as I can never get my posts sorted, I've learnt that taking a decent photo doesn't come easily and I've learnt that it's so important to take time out to do something that you love. Since the start of 2015, I have decided to really give blogging a go and who knows where it will take me. I really love makeup and I really love sharing all this good stuff with you guys!
I'm especially thankful for the people i've met through blogging. There are some great people that have become such close friends to me that I would notice if we didn't talk for a day and I love that!
I like having my little spot where I can go and talk all the crap to you guys and you understand it and I think thats the best thing about it. We all understand each other, it doesn't matter why were doing it, it just matters that we all have the same interests. 
I am without a doubt looking forward to the next year of blogging and seeing where it takes me!

USA Wishlist #1

I am going to Florida in exactly 87 days and I could not be more excited if I tried. This would be my first time to the USA, my first long haul flight and my first flying with Virgin. Basically, it's my first of everything so i'm pretty excited. So, naturally, I want to share with you guys all of the things that I want to purchase during my trip to the U.S.

January Faves '15

We're back on the rug for the first favourites post of 2015! I'm so in consistent with my photos, I'm actually just starting to like it. Daylight seems to be the hardest thing to get hold of these days and when you're picture taking in your hour lunch break, it is just easier to lay it on the new incredibly fluffy rug and snap away then spend ages setting up the background properly. This is where I need to be more proactive and plan my posts more. What can I say? I'm just a little forgetful.

#nyLDNmeet - My First Meet Up!

Normally I'm a big wuss and meeting new people is never normally my thing but I said to myself that this year, I was going to have more fun and achieve better things. So, when Charlotte and Daisy egged me on to come to the #nyLDNmeet on the 31st of January, I thought, why not?! I was so scared about going but after I went, I am so glad I did. I finally got the meet Charlotte who has helped me with my blog from day one and Daisy who I have been speaking too for so long now, it felt like we had all known each other for years which was so nice.
