My Make Up Storage // Muji Drawers



I have the storage I've always wanted for my make up. Clear, plastic drawers that are simple and Instagram perfect. Here is where I keep my main go to make up that is current or new. It might not be my everyday look but it is frequently used. I have always wanted these clear plastic drawers from www.muji.eu/ and now I have them, I am a happy bunny. I am keeping my make up visual so that I don't forget to use some of it. Having my make up in normal drawers before made me frequently forget what I had and the looks I could create. Let me talk you through my storage thought process.

What's In My Hand Luggage // Vacation to Turkey


Summer may be over but I am about to get on a plane for my Summer holiday to Turkey. Packing to go away for a weekend is difficult let alone 12 days abroad. I am writing lists, making piles of things in corners and laying out outfits on the floor trying to decide what on earth to take. But the easy bag to pack is my hand luggage.

My Top 3 Go To Products

Everyone has their go to make up products that never fail them. Even when you move on to try something new, you always go back to what you know best. Because it just works.

I definitely have my go to products which I will always be using, or have half used ones that I will come back to after my obsession with another product dies down or has left me feeling disappointed. 

I have been buying this powder for as long as I can remember. Since I started wearing makeup properly at 12-13 years old, which means I've been buying this powder for 10 years. Wow, suddenly I feel old. Age 12-13 is when the foundation and winged eyeliner phase hit me. Translucent or natural for my pale skin and tempting touch for when I have a tan (natural or from a bottle). I started buying this because it was a good colour match, the powder felt soft on my skin, it was affordable for me and because my Mum told me to. I often branch out to other powders, for example right now I am testing out a Maybelline Matte Powder which I like but no doubt after I am finished (or bored) I will dig out my Creme Puff. At £6.99 a compact it's affordable for most people and it does last a really long time as you only need a little each time you use it. I tend to use it in the morning and have a quick touch up after lunchtime for the rest of the day. It gives my skin a nice glow and is a great setting powder for my foundation. I am in a long term on and off relationship with this powder.

JewelleryBox.co.uk // Review


I savored the moment of opening this adorable Jewellery box gift from the Big Blogger Conference.  I am a sucker for good packaging and this ticks all my boxes. Simple, cute and very Instagram worthy. The Jewellery Box stand at the conference was the most attractive and interesting. They had an incredible display and endless gorgeous pieces. The prices for the jewellery are super affordable and reasonable, which pleases my bank account. There are many pieces online that I am pining over. However, right now I am enjoying what I found underneath all the wonderful packaging.

Sass & Belle Make Up Bag // Weekend Away

 

I am in love with my new Sass & Belle make up bag. It's quite large so is probably meant to be used as a toilteriary bag... But for me, I use it as the bag that holds all my extra make up that I need for a long weekend away. I'm off to a holiday park down south with my family 'in law' to celebrate Brendan's dads 70th birthday. 4 days away means a lot of additional make up is needed, but I had to select the must haves so I don't end up packing several suitcases. What I love about this make up bag is not only the cute super print, which is SUPER cute with the two loved up foxes but also the size and quality of the bag. It's long enough to house my beloved Naked 2 palette and wide enough for my large tub of Elizabeth Arden Face Cream. The quality is great and I know it's going to hold all that I need without looking too bulky.

5 things I like to do in the Autumn.


September has arrived and that only means one thing, Winter is on its way!
My favourite seasons are Autumn and Winter by a mile. Chunky knit scarves, boots, coats, oversized jumpers and snuggling up with a blanket while it's dark, cold and rainy outside. Perfection. 

I thought I'd share my top 5 things to do now that the winter months have arrived.

The Reality Of Getting A Good Picture

I love a good typical foot shot on a beach. I couldn't resist taking this photo while on the beach in Hastings recently. Unfortunately, if you scroll a tad further you will see the reality of focusing upon taking a good photo. You forget your surroundings.
