According to The Beatles, all you need is love. Well, I have this to say to Paul McCartney – what about food, Paul? Water? 8 hours of sleep per night? And most importantly – NUDE LIPSTICKS? Some minor amendments to the lyrics and I could maybe get on board with that song, s’all I’m saying. In my opinion, nude lipsticks are actually the most important on that list, and I’ve mentioned before that I usually have quite a few loitering around in my handbag. My current total stands at 4, which I think is pretty restrained for me – but luckily, they’re 4 good’uns.

One thing you might know about me if you’ve ever spent, say, three minutes in my company is my slight obsession with nude lips. A red can sometimes be okay for a night out, and I’ve been known to rock a purple if I’m feeling particularly vampy in the winter, but 99.9% of the time I’ll have some variety of nude lip going on. As such, nude lipliners pay a really important part in my life, so when I discovered these cheerfully cheap and FANTASTIC lip liners from NYX, I was understandably excited. View Full Post
O M to the absolute G – I finally have it, dear readers. The Dream Bag. For Christmas, I was lucky enough to receive (*cough* because I asked for it *cough* and sent my sister the link when it was in the Black Friday sale *cough*) this absolute beauty from my family. It’s the Kurt Geiger London Saffiano Tote in beige, and it’s basically all of my bag-related dreams come true.

Okay, so I know December is supposed to be the month of giving, but I was hit with one of those months where ALL of my makeup ran out at once. All of it. Every last bit (well apart from my Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade because that stuff will outlive the cockroaches). So I therefore had to go and treat myself to a few bits, employing the “one for you, one for me” method of Christmas shopping. Hugely successful. View Full Post
As you may know, I split my shopping time equally between Coventry and Birmingham – Coventry because I live here, and Birmingham because I sometimes get the urge to visit a River Island that is bigger than the average sized kitchen (seriously Cov, sort it out). ANYWAY, while I do generally stick to these two locations, sometimes I like to switch it up a bit by checking out other shopping centres in the local area – and this weekend, I got to tick another one of the list as I was invited along to the Kingfisher shopping centre in nearby Redditch.

I feel like us beauty fans are always on the quest for the one perfect product. The one foundation that will have amazing coverage but still leave a luminous finish; the one mascara that will add length, volume and flutterability; the one-sweep wonder lipstick that’ll be highly pigmented but still light on the lips and maybe even bring peace to the middle east. But recently I’ve gone for a slightly different tactic – why not combine two good products for one perfect finish? View Full Post
