Little Update

Hello lovelies!

Just as I was getting my blog-inspo back, I had to take a month out from blogging.

My personal life has been so stressful recently that I simply haven’t had time or the mental capacity. Sad face. I found that I was really missing planning and writing posts as I often find it to be therapeutic and a great way for me to unwind/switch off from adult life so with that in mind I’m making a conscious effort to write.

My life is still a bit hectic, but I’m really going to be strict with myself and ensure I take much more “me time” to write and enjoy my creative outlet here. Otherwise, I think my little head might explode.

I have a few posts planned a penned already with plenty more in mind!

It’s good to be back.

Hello lovelies!!

Fall in Love Face Illuminator Collection £45

Top pick in this collection goes to this beauty. I love a good highlighter – it’s probably my favourite make up product. This palette looks stunning and looks like it would suit all skin tones. I have yet to try any of the LM face illuminators, but I would gladly test these beauties out…

Sweet Temptations Creme Brûlée Duet £35

It isn’t Christmas without one of LM’s beautiful, sweet bath and body gift sets.

This year the top pick for me is the Creme Brûlée duet which contains a luxurious body cream and honey bath.

I have used the LM honey bath before and the scent fills the entire bathroom and is super moisturising on the skin. A total luxury product.

Top Picks – MAC Nutcracker Sweet Collection

Hello lovelies!

Another day, another top picks from the Christmas collections!

Today we’re taking a look at what MAC have to offer in the form of their Nutcracker Sweet Collection, let’s dive in!

Sweet Copper Face Compact £29

The stand out product for me in this collection is the Face Compact duos. These come in two shades – a very pretty Sweet Peach and an intense Sweet Copper. The highly popular Whisper of Gilt highlighter makes a comeback in the Sweet Copper compact, making it very covetable in my opinion. A blush and highlight for £29, bargain!

190 Foundation Brush
129 Powder/Blush Brush
213 Fluff Brush
209 Eye Liner Brush

Sweet Nude Lipstick Kit £26
