Loreal Paris True Match - The Minerals

This is my new love I saw this product in a video from one of my favorite youtubers 'Melonlady'. I instantly decided I needed it in my life as it looked so easy to use and I must say I was not disappointed! I got mine in the colour Golden Ivory. As I  am pretty pale, all you have to do is tip it upside down and take the brush section off. Dip the brush in the minerals and with a few swoops your foundation is done! No need for power and I sometimes suffer with shiny skin but this keeps it at bay for ever such a long time. It has a lovely coverage and doesn't look cakey at all. It is perfect for if your in a rush or just need some quick work/college/school makeup. 

Any new finds this month that as made you happy this January?  ox

180 eyeshadow pallet

This item is a beauty! I heard about it on a few different social media sites and I was shocked when they said it was from eBay. Don't get me wrong I have an addiction to eBay but I didn't think this time would be as cheap as it was. I got this 180 eyeshadow pallet for just under twelve pound which is an absolute steal. I have been trying to be more experimental with my eyeshadow colours. As I do seem to stick to my favorites but this is perfect for testing out new colours. I must say the pigment in every single one is great and the shimmer shadows are my favorite. So if you fancy a little treat or want to try a bit of colour experimentation I would recommend it ox

New year

Happy New Year Everybody! 

I'm not sure where the past two weeks have gone, but I can't help feeling a little deflated today knowing that it's all over and it's back to the grind tomorrow. I do tend to feel this way in January as it is a bit of a dull and cold month. Although on a brighter note I have set myself a goal of making 2014 the year of productivity and excitement, something i can really look back on and be like "hey I am proud of that." We are going to Florida at the end of the month which is something I have always wanted to do. Hopefully we can get our saving on and find ourselves our own place which we are craving at the moment. I am going to do my best to finally pass my driving test (fingers crossed). Why is it so scary? Also I plan to do my children's book illustration course which is my dream job and I have now found that I can do it from home which is awesome as long as don't start being lazy. Have any of you done an online course, if so how did you find it? Finally I really want to design my blog properly, turn it into something a bit more professional and work on my photography if I can get my camera fixed ! 

I'd love to write this again next year and see what I actually have done with my year. Let's hope it's at least half! Have you any resolutions this year? ox
