My Everyday Makeup

I thought I would do a little post about the makeup I currently use on a daily basis. I always get into a little routine with the same products then once I get bored, I'll switch it up a bit and change the colour products around like lipstick, blush and eyeshadow. I've been rocking a dark or bright lip for so long, that I wanted to dull it down a bit and go a bit more natural. I'm enjoying it a lot. I feel like my face looks a bit more fresh. These are the current products i'm using!

Nars Sheer Glow in "Mont Blanc"
Maybelline FitMe Concealer in "Light"
Erase Paste Concealer in "No.1"
Sleek Blush Face Contour Kit in "Light"
Sleek Blush in "Mirrored Pink"
HD Brows Kit in "Vamp" 
Estee Lauder Eyeshadow Duo in "Raisins"
Benefit "They're Real" Mascara
Stila Smudge Stick in "Damsel"
YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in "13 - Peach Passion"

I hope you enjoyed this little update. I love having a nosey into everyone's makeup bags and I also find it useful to see what others are loving so I thought you'd like to see mine too. I want to review a few of the products mentioned separately as they deserve an individual rave, but for now I thought it'd keep it sweet and simple.

Rose Gold "Yes" Bracelet

Last week, I was perusing the website "Etsy" which, if you aren't familiar with, is a site where small businesses can make and sell specific items. Since I am going through a major obsession with rose gold, I searched "Rose gold bracelet" and found a shop which offered cute bracelets with words bent into them. They had words like "Love" and "Hope"(as well as other cute designs) which I toyed between for a while, and then noticed that they offered a custom service for any word of your choice. If you have read my "Just Say Yes" post, you will know that I have decided to say yes to a lot more things in order to break free of my anxiety and panic disorder and to live life to the fullest that I can. As a reminder of this, I thought it would be nice to get a bracelet that simply said "yes" so that when I look down at my wrist i'm always met with a positive vibe and a little nudge of "just do it, what's the worse that can happen". They offer the bracelet in many different sizes so no worries if you have a teeny wrist like me or a slightly wider one. Including postage and packaging this bracelet only cost me £18.27 which for a silver plated bracelet that will mean quite a lot to me, is really not bad at all. I really love it and have already worn it lot's. I love that although it's so simple, it has a lot of personal meaning and also looks so cute.

Is there anything you'd love to get written on a bracelet? A reminder of something? Or maybe something that would mean a lot to you?

Instagram Prints

Who can you spot?

As most of you might be aware, I am a little obsessed with Instagram. Being a lover of photography this little iphone app is something I am always using and loving and I have now clocked up a rather large amount of photos on there. It's a shame to have all those memories and pretty photos trapped in your phone, so to rectify this problem, I used a site called to print out my favourite images. I'm not too sure where i'll put them yet, but i'm pleased with how they came out, and all in such good quality. You can buy them in stacks of 12 in 2 different sizes. You can choose between mini prints or slightly larger more "polaroid" style, which is what I opted for. The website also allows you to create calendars, stickers, posters, mini books and memory boxes with your prints, which I think is such a nice idea either for yourself or for a present for someone else. Now I just need to decide where i'm going to put them. I think they'd look great on a wall or a pin board. If like me you are a bit obsessed with Instagram, or you have a selection of photos you think would look brilliant printed out, I'd definitely take a peek on their website.

I also apologise for the "i'm-feeling-slightly-mental-so-my-webcam-photos-have-turned-out-like-this-and-these-were-the-only-half-decent-ones" shots. We all have moments like this...right? haha
