Let’s start off with saying Happy New Year!

Next, I realise that I have neglected my blog – mainly because I have been quite busy but honestly that’s no excuse. I am not one for adhering to making new year resolutions but I am for growth (at any time of the year).

The book with the Eiffel Tower on the front is where I have been writing inspirational quotes. I have literally filled the pages with hundreds of motivating quotes and sayings. There was a night where I was feeling like crap and I started reading the quotes that I had previously written and felt that my spirits had lifted. For my quote sources, I use Pinterest. It is my favourite social networking tool and there are plenty of images to lust over and to use for inspiration.

I think it’s a great idea for anyone that can get overwhelmed with what life throws at them and I encourage everyone to the same or something similar. It could be anything. A photo album, inspirational collages/pictures – whatever tugs your heart strings or motivates you to a higher plane.

My blog will get a whole lot more busy this year… I promise myself.

Have a blessed day xoxoxo

December Favourites 2014

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/867/46809753/files/2015/01/img_1228.jpg

These are my favourite products for the month of December 2014!

Mac Lightful Marine Bright Formula Serum

Trust me when I say that this serum is awesome! I’m not really great with giving reviews on products but It has an instant effect on the face – making it appear smooth from the outset. The texture of my skin has definitely changed after using this for a few days.

Mac Lightful Marine Bright Formula Moisture Creme

The same can be said for this product. When I started using this my skin appeared so smooth the very next day. This is definitely my HG product. It is a little pricey but it is totally worth it for what you get.

Cha Cha Tint by Benefit Cosmetics

This tinted blusher is the best colour for my darker skin tone. It gives a very natural flush of colour on the cheeks. I have an extensive collection of blushes – this is by far my favourite!

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle

Only started using this a couple of weeks ago but it is already my favourite highlighter. It is quite pigmented so I only need to use a little. I find that it is perfect if you contour your face for those extra made up days.

Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Perfume 15ml

This will always be my favourite perfume. It’s going to be my favourite in January I’m sure of it.

Body Shop Leona Lewis Blush Brush (discontinued)

I slept on this brush. I got it a very long time ago in the Body Shop sale but because of the vast amount of brushes that I have, I neglected using it. I have found that It gives the perfect application that you need when applying product to the cheeks.

Mac Pro Longwear in NC45

I never thought that I would ever find a Mac foundation that I actually liked. I tried Studio Fix, Face and Body foundation and even Match Master foundation but when I say that this foundation suits me to a T. I am so happy that I saw that review on YouTube about this foundation because it made me actually go to the MAC store to test it out. I was impressed with the results of the application and the staying power that it possesses.

Mac Lip Conditioner

My lips get really dry throughout the day. I tried this little beauty and I was not disappointed! This lip conditioner truly conditions your lips. The more that you use it, the less you have to use it overall. It is quite pricey but I would definitely get it again if I had to.

Ben Nye Banana Powder

I had a bit of mixed reviews on this product initially but as soon as I found the correct way to apply this – it gave my skin a flawless finish. It is worth all the hype fortunately.

Lush Vanillary Solid Perfume

This is my favourite natural perfume from Lush. You can literally be creative with it. Put it in your hair, your pulse points – anywhere that can do with a gust of vanilla fragrance.

Bristle Hairbrush (from any beauty supply store)
