FOTD Using my Naked Pallette and a Body Shop offer!!

I went out the other night for a meal with the Boyfriend and decided I would try my Urban Decay Naked Palette for the first time. Up until then, I had just left it on my dressing table and looked at it :-)

The products I used were:

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
  • Benefit Boi-ing Concealer
  • Benefit Coralista Blusher
  • The Body Shop Shimmer Waves in 02 Blush
  • The Body Shop Brow and Liner Kit
  • Naked Palette in Naked and Creep
  • Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Perversion
  • No7 Exquisite Curl Mascara (which is fab and will do a review soon!!)
  • Avon SuperShock Gel eyeliner Black
  • Collection 2000 eyeshadow in 01 Frosting as a highlighter
  • Collection 2000 Lip Definer in 1 Nude Pink
  • Mac Lipstick in Blankety
I loved this look and although my eye make up was quite heavy, it didn't really look it in the photo's.

I have to say these pic's were taken before I did my hair and got changed so please excuse the messy hair and pyjama top hehe!!

We went for a yummy curry and the place was so warm inside I was sure most of my eye make up would be at least a little bit creased by the end of the night but I was very impressed with the way it stayed on!! So far im loving the palette, I think Urban Decay is quickly becoming one of my fave brands for make up, love it!!

Just one more thing, i've just noticed that The Body Shop have got 30% off everything for today only if you have one of their Love Your Body cards.

I got mine when I finished working for them and have nearlly filled up all the stamps already so I might have to go and have a look tonight, with that sort of discount, how can you resist?!
BoldIt is available in store and online so its a good time to stock up if you need anything. Think i'll take the oppurtunity to stock up on my Coconut stuff!!

Hope everyone has a good day and grabs some bargains x x

Pixie Lott - I Love Her Style!!

I absolutely LOVE Pixie Lott and think that her style is fab!! If I could pick a style, that I thought I could pull off easily, it would definately be her's. I love her make up idea's and always think her eye make up is gorgeous. Her hair also always looks amazing and full of volume.

Her clothes somehow always look good, no matter what she's wearing. I love how one minute she can look elegant and girly, and the next she's in a muddy field in biker boot's!!

On quite a few pics of Pixie, you can see she occasionally suffers from breakouts, which in my opinion makes her seem even more appealing and more like the rest of us normal girlies.

Anyway, I just thought i'd share a few pics with you all, I think she kind of inspires us all just to wear what we think looks good and it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks!!

All pics from Google Images

What does everyone else think of Pixie, like her or loathe her?!

I Miss My Job

I know this might sound a little crazy to some people, but its true. Basically for those of you that don't know, I had been living in Glasgow with my (now ex) boyfriend. While I was living there I got myself a job at The Body Shop and it was my dream job!! I took it at the time as I was fed up of looking for a job and they needed staff straight away.
I started as a 20 hour girl, then moved up to 30 hours and eventually Key Holder for the store. I loved everything about the job which i think was helped a lot by the people I worked with, but mainly the products!!!!
Most of my wages went straight back in to the till when I got paid as there were always new products coming out to try and limited edition make up always grabbed my attention.

Me looking just a bit too happy at work.

After i had worked there for 5 years, they opened up a big new Body Shop just 10 minutes away from our little shop which meant bad news for us :-(
They eventually decided to close our store and made us redundant. Although I was gutted, I was in the middle of splitting up with my (now ex) boyfriend and really it had come at the perfect time as I didn't have to resign and got some money to keep me going for a while.
Im back home with my parents in the West Midlands now and have been for just over a year. I did get another job in an Opticians but I hated it and in comparison to The Body Shop, where I could do make-overs all day and I actually had a passion about the products I was selling, i found glasses a bit boring hehe.
So now im back to square 1 and job hunting. Don't you just love it?! (NOT!!)

On another note, I thought I would also introduce my new Boyfriend to all of you, as when im not blogging or job hunting (ha), im normally with him.

This was us at New Year looking slightly tipsy!!

We're getting on really well together but it has taken a bit of getting used to being with someone else and getting used to all their little habits as im sure most of you know.
I hope i've filled you all in on why i've been missing from the blogging world for a little while but I should be back in the full swing of things as of now!! :-)

Is anyone else doing the dreaded job hunt at the mo?! Hope you are all well

Urban Decay: Naked

Just a quick post today as im so excited as to what I got, that I need to go and use it!!

My new Urban Decay Naked Palette!!

I've seen this on so many other blogs and have always wanted it but I missed out when they were on sale in store. I finally decided that I had to have one and so reluctantly bought one off eBay. I couldnt resist it anymore!!

They are all the sort of colours that I normally use in my Sleek palettes and they seem to be suited to most people as they're quite natural colours but will look fab for a night out.

Im going out for a meal for my Boyfriend's Dad's Birthday tonight and cant wait to try it!!

I have also NEVER tried the Primer Potion so can't wait to try that either to see if it actually makes a difference.

Has anyone got any recommendations for which colours go best together?!

I'M BACK!!!!

Hello Lovely Bloggers!!!!

I am finally back in the world of blogging, yay!! I have been keeping up with all of you and my fave blogs, but over the past year and a bit since my last post, there's been a lot of changes in my life.

I had been living in Glasgow with my partner for 6 years but at the start of last year we split up. I had to leave my job and the home I shared with him and move my life back down to Birmingham.

As you can imagine it was VERY stressful and I had SO much stuff I didnt even realise how much stuff I had to sort out so its only now that im kind of back on track!!
I cant wait to get back blogging about my fave products and inform you all about everything i've been up to, hopefully all my lovely followers havent given up on me!!

Hope you are all well and i'll be posting very soon!!
