Pretty In Pink | My Valentine's Day Makeup Bag

Happy Valentine's Day beautiful people. I love how this year Valentine's Day is right after pancake day, its fab having a double celebration. As you know, yesterday was all about the food, but today is all about the love. It doesn't matter if you're celebrating with the love of your life or if you and your girlfriends are celebrating Galentines, its great to get in the spirit and go all out. There was a time when my hubby and I used to go out and do something special, but now we have Archie our night will consist of a nice home cooked dinner and a cosy up on the sofa later with snacks and a good film. Whether you're going out or staying in, I love creating a Valentine's Day makeup look. Red or pink? It's a difficult one to choose, but this year I'm all about the soft subtle pinks and I thought I'd share whats in my Valentine's Day makeup bag if you need a bit of last minute inspiration.

Everything You Need To Create The Perfect Pancake Day at Home with Asda's Pancake Range

Can you believe Pancake day is tomorrow? Pancake day has to be the most exciting day since Christmas and in my household we LOVE pancakes! We love them so much so, that we don't wait a whole year fill our tummies this scrumptious food, so as you can imagine we love going all out on a special day that is purely dedicated to eating pancakes. This year I've teamed up with Asda and have been getting some extra practice in before the big day and I've been trying and testing out the Asda pancake range so I can help you create the perfect pancake day at home too. So if you love pancakes just as much as I do then keep on reading and grab a pen and some paper as I've got your shopping list sorted.

My First Impressions of the I Heart Makeup Chocolate Elixir Palette

Last year I accumulated a lot of eyeshadow palettes, one of the many perks of being a beauty blogger. About a week or so before Christmas I had a surprise gift from the team at Tam Beauty which I was not expecting and I was pretty excited to see their new I Heart Makeup Chocolate Elixir Palette*. I know Tam Beauty might have quite a few chocolate palettes to choose from, but this is the first one I own and I was pretty excited when I opened the lid and saw some beautiful looking eyeshadows inside. My excitement continued when I realised that this was a very similar looking palette to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette, which has been on my wish list for so long. My reasoning's for never treating myself to the MR palette, is because I really do own far too many eyeshadow palettes, that combined with the price tag, I just don't know if I can justify it yet. So I'm more than happy to have something very similar looking in my collection. So if you're in the same boat as me or just want a palette that's just as pretty as the MR palette, then keep on reading.

Five Products From Urban Decay That Are Worth Investing In

When someone asks me what my favourite makeup brand is, I struggle to find an answer as there are so many brands that I love. However my makeup collection definitely speaks for itself and if you were to take a little look you would see that the amount of Urban Decay products shadows out the rest, so this can only really mean that Urban Decay is possibly my ultimate favourite. I was sorting through my makeup the other day and thought I would put together a post of my top five Urban Decay products, the ones that you really need and that are worth every penny. If you love Urban Decay as much as I do, expect to see some of your favourites in here, but if you're fairly new to the brand then hopefully you'll find my picks really useful.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you're new year is going well so far and you're smashing any new years resolutions that you have. I feel pretty pleased with how mine are going so far. I love hearing about what goals everyone has set for themselves, so be sure to head over to my 2018 goals post here and share your plans with me. I've been reading a lot of goals posts on blogs recently and I've seen quite a few people mention that they want to improve on their makeup skills and try new products out this year. I like to think I'm pretty good with my makeup (I hope so as I've been wearing it for over half my life). If theres one thing I've learnt is that makeup brushes are the key to success! Not only does a good set of makeup brushes make applying products so much easier, but I've found the right brushes help you get the best out of your makeup. You guys know how much I love my Girls With Attitude makeup brushes, they are by far my favourite and to kick start the new year off, GWA have released their new Luxe Metallics* five piece makeup brush collection, which is perfect to get your makeup game off to a good start this year.

My Best Beauty Finds of 2017

One of my favourite things ever is discovering new makeup and trying new looks out. Every year I always add to my collection (even though I'm on constant spending bans) and I love taking a moment to reflect on the new discoveries I've made and share them with you all. One of the perks of being a blogger is being sent new things to try and I felt incredibly lucky last year with the things that I was gifted. I also managed to treat myself to a few things that had been on my wish list for sometime. So if you're looking to get a little inspired with your makeup collection this year, have a little read on...
