Ta Ta 2012!

Hello Lovelies (:

Now is the time to wish 2012 a farewell as we do that we should think about all the positive things that happened throughout the year!

My first positive memory of 2012 is passing my second year of Uni. This was important to me as the grades in my first year of uni didn't count towards my degree so I was really happy to pass my second year.

Another happy memory was going to New York with my Boyfriend. My Boyfriend had planned the whole trip, we had an amazing time going ice skating in Central Park, having Thanks Giving Dinner and going to the top of the Empire State Building!

 My third amazing moment of 2012 was getting engaged! My Boyfriend and I have been together for 5 years and I was absolutely ecstatic when he got down on one knee! I'm looking forward to seeing another year in with him.

And of course starting my little blog!

I wish you all the best for 2013, and hope you make lots more happy memories!

What are your best bits of 2012?

Brighton Rock

Hello Lovelies (:

I think I've caught a lipstick bug, this is my second purchase in a week! I saw this whilst out shopping for a Christmas outfit with the boyfriend. I did have my eye on Topshop' Innocent lipstick but thought it was too similar to MAC Creme Cup. It is a lovely bright pink which gives my pale face a nice pop of colour! When I wore it, it lasted about 3 hours before I needed to reapply -  I did eat a meal in that time too so it may last longer!

Have you got any Topshop lipsticks?

Politely Pink

Hello Lovelies (:

I ordered a new lipstick on the Debenhams website as when I went into the store they were completely sold out! I went in searching for MAC's Politely Pink. This makes two MAC lipsticks in my collection now, I'm not a big lipstick fan - I'm more of an eyeshadow kind of gal!

Politely pink is a sheer nudey pink colour with a hint of shimmer, perfect for when I have gone heavy on the eyeshadow!

I'm not sure on the length of wear of this lipstick as I wore it for the first time on Christmas Day just before eating my Christmas Dinner so it wore off quite quickly!

What is your favourite MAC lipstick?

My Simple Face

Hello Lovelies (: 

I thought I would share with you the makeup I have been reaching for the last couple of days.

(Sorry for the quality)

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation - Mont Blanc
YSL Touche Eclat - 1
Hoola Brozner
MAC Mineralise Skin Finish - Soft & Gentle
MAC Blush - Pink Swoon

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
MAC - Patina
MAC - Carbon
Benefit They're Real Mascara

Au Naturel

I've been keeping it quite simple, especially on the eyes - using a little bit of Carbon along the lashline as eyeliner. I have been loving the Sheer Glow, it gives such a flawless finish with just the right amount of 'glow'. I'll be jazzing it up a bit for Christmas day of course!

What make up have you been reaching for?
