2013 Makeup favourites.

The last day of 2013, Wow! I'm going to be completely cliche here and say were has this year gone. First of I'd like to say a huge thank you to you guys, When looking for last years favourites I found a post saying happy new year. I put this post up 365 days ago today and I said I had over 1000 page views this year I have over 22,000 which is so crazy I just can't even comprehend it! So without a further ramble... (It's so weird that this is the last time I will type that this year)

My first favourite has to be the Maybelline colour tattoo's. If your a regular reader you will know I'm constantly rambling about how much I love these bad boys. No creasing, beautiful colours and blend like an angel what's not to like?!?!

Next up is the urban decay Naked basics palette. I love because It's so versatile, I find that I can create a simple day look but also a nice smoky eye. I find matte colours can be hard to come across especially well pigmented and blendable ones so I love this! 

Next up is two blushers First is the Topshop cream blusher in flush. This is such an amazing colour and I find it so easy to work with despite it being so bright, I find it blends incredibly and once set stays all day well worth the £6 I paid for it! The second blush is the Dainty doll powder blush in 002 My girl. The whole blogging world seemed to go mad for these when the line was discontinued and they began to be sold on places like amazon and fragrance direct. This is a sheeny pink that glows without looking like I've been in a explosion at a glitter factory. It leaves a very natural looking flush on the cheeks and has a really nice staying power. 

Next up are the Collection cream puff's in Cotton Candy and Fairy Cake. These are both such pretty natural colours, Fairy Cake is a gorgeous natural coral which looks so flattering on both pale and tanned skin whilst Cotton candy is a muted rosy colour which looks more at home on the lips of a pale faced lady like myself. Both are matte yet velvety and not drying, I find these last for around 6-7 hours on the lips. 

Something that featured in last years favourites as well is the seventeen BB cream in light. This is such a lovely product and is really lovely on my oily skin. I find it keeps my skin from looking greasy whilst still letting a my natural skin glow through. This isn't the highest coverage base I own but with a little concealer on a good skin day it's just enough. 

The final product in this years favourites is the Collection Fast stroke eyeliner. I went through a stage were I wore liquid eyeliner everyday and this one was perfect. A slim brush, jet black and long lasting it really is the perfect eyeliner. 

So that's it my 2013 favourites I hope you enjoyed this post!

A 2013 roundup.

Hey guys,
I've decided that today I'm going to be showing you my favourite posts that I have written in 2013, the fact that I've been blogging for over a year is absolutely crazy and there was definitely lots of cringing while I was looking through my old posts. I really cannot believe how far I have come in a year. My photography has definitely come a very long way! So without further a ramble here's my top posts of 2013.


The January favourites...

This is really the best from a bad bunch I really like the photo's for this one, the content is a little vauge but overall it's not to bad. I still love this lipstick though! 


Rainbow leopard Nail art ...

I absolutely love this, I think it looks really effective and I'm seriously chuffed with everything about this post. It's most definitely one of my favourite posts ever. 


This post, looking back on it it's lacking a bit of detail but I again really like the pictures. 


It's crazy to see how much not only my style has changed and how much my brace has changed my teeth. It also really shocked me how much my following has grown. When I was wrote that post I had 81 followers on bloglovin' so its crazy to thing I've gained around 450 followers since then. 


This was probably one of the posts that I'm most proud of. I love everything about it and I'm in love with the way the cookies turned out. 


This post was hard work to write but I was really pleased with the way it turned out. I think this tag is such a great idea and really helps show your favourites in a more exciting way.


I really didn't have much to pick from in July as I only wrote 5 posts but I quite liked this one. It has loads of detail in it and I'm pretty impressed with the way it's written. It's most definitely a huge improvement on some of my previous posts. 


My updated everyday Makeup routine...

I love looking back at old FOTD'S and seeing what I wore everyday so I really enjoyed looking back at this post. I found it really interesting to see what products I was using everyday and comparing them to my everyday products now! 


I loved the whole idea behind this project and I loved creating the Nail art. I was very happy with how it turned out. 


I loved this post, and I really enjoyed looking back on it. 


I loved the way these photo's turned out and I loved the post. I also really enjoyed writing this so expect to see more of these posts popping up throughout 2014.


I love these photo's and I also loved the way this post turned out. It's one of my favourite #bigblogmasproject posts. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post as I really enjoyed writing it.

What I got for Christmas 2013!

So I thought about not doing this post as I didn't want anyone to think I was bragging, (which I'm not I'm eternally grateful for all my gifts) but after asking on twitter a couple of weeks ago and seeing so many posts and videos I decided to bite the bullet and do it anyway. I must warn you this is a very photo heavy post,  if you'd like to see anything reviewed just let me know! 

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas day, I know I did and I hope Santa treated you well. I also haven't pictured any of the clothes I got as I find them awkward to photograph!
