An Impromptu Primark Haul














I took a trip to Manchester/Wigan this week to see some family and managed to sneak in a trip to Primark while I was there. It will forever deeply sadden me that Primark doesn't have an online store but I'm sure that most of our bank accounts are more than grateful that they don't.

Vegan Food Haul (UK)










Never in a million years did I ever think I would be a Vegan. A year ago - nope, scratch that even just a week ago, if you would have told me that I'd be giving up all animal products I would have scoffed at you with a mouthful of cheese - but here I am and I think it's one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint




Nars are well known for their foundations and I'm sure most of us have at least one favourite from the brand but this is just something else. It has not only risen well above the love I had for all of Nars' other foundations, which were once upon a time my holy grail, but it's become my absolute favourite foundation of all time. It's so unbelievably wonderful.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit - That Glow






L - R; 1. sunburst, 2. golden bronze, 3. bubbly, 4. dripping gold.

I am such a HUGE fan of the highlighter trend that has popped up over the past year. The cat walks were flooded with natural, glowing skin this year and I could not be happier. Especially if this means that harsh contouring and layers of make up are soon to slowly fade away to the place that homes shoes with wheels and undefined eyebrows. I will not be missing any of those things at all.

Make Up On Tour - Travel Make Up Bag






I'm off to Berlin on Saturday and I've just started packing all my stuff ready to go. Being a make up hoarder and a beauty blogger has meant that narrowing down my make up collection to travel with is one of the hardest things I've done in a long time. I'm not going to bore you to death and talk through every product so instead I'll give you a run down by category and hopefully that will be make for a shorter post. Hopefully.

A Little Gem*








The lovely people at Gemporia contacted me and asked if I'd like to review one of their gorgeous pieces. If you know me at all you'll be well aware that simplicity is my ultimate love affair, so as soon as I saw this on their website I got butterflies.

MAC x Charlotte Olympia Lipsticks - Leading Lady Red & Starlett Scarlet












L - R; leading lady red, starlett scarlet

Like I said in my haul I'm not usually one to sit and wait for MAC limited edition launches but with this collection containing some matte red lipsticks (and already owning every matte red shade MAC has to offer) I jumped at the chance to add some new shades to my collection.
