Take A Break

Part of me has been trying my hardest to delay this post for as long as possible thinking i could avoid it, or better yet not have to write it. I know i'm not the best blogger in the world, but i try to update as and when i can. Sometimes life has it's complications and right now that seems to be my biggest issue. I can't go into the nitty gritty, but there's lots going on at the moment, and it would be unfair of me to try and promise a post a week, day, month.. anything. I will as and when i can. I understand i'll probably loose some followers, but its something that can't be avoided. I hope you can all understand and stick by me at this time. x

Ill still be reading everyone else's posts and still be around on twitter.

Happy Birthday!

Today is my blog's first birthday, and i just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone thats been with me through the past year. I might not always post every day, but i am grateful for the click-through i get from other blogs, followers of my blog & twitter and word of mouth. It really does mean a lot. I know my blog isn't the biggest, or the best, but its something i'm very proud of, and to be here a year on, still posting with people out there that are interested enough to click 'follow', means a lot. So thank you! x

(In other news, I have a job interview on Tuesday for my dream job. Please wish me luck!)

July's Picks

Urban Decay Naked Palette
So many colours that work for any kind of look - daytime to evening. I bought this on the plane home from Italy. Such a good palette to have in you collection if you wear neutrals/browns. 

Umberto Giannini Backcomb In A Bottle
I've been using this for a while now, its such a good product for nights out when you want big hair. Its quite pricey at about £5 a bottle for 200ml, but t really works, and it smells amazing! 

Elf Blush in Tickled Pink
I've recently dug this one out and have been using it pretty much every day. It gives such a nice, natural colour.

Estee Lauder brush cleaner
Perfect for day-to-day use.

Benefit High Beam and Hoola 
I got the high beam in a magazine and can't stop using it. Such a pretty highlight. I'll be investing in a full size bottle when this one runs out.
Hoola was an Italy buy from Sephora in Milan train station, not cheap, but worth the money for a matte bronzer.

Rimmel lipstick in Foxy
Such a pretty colour, not too in your face for my liking!

Sammy Fat Hair thickening creme
Trying not to put heat on my hair at the mo, using this stuff and a spritz of hairspray, it looks (just about) bearable. 

So that's my top picks for July, have you been using any of these products? Let me know. x

If you go down to the woods today

As i'm sure many of you who don't already live in the UK will probably know by now, we've actually had amazing weather today (summer might actually be showing its delayed little face!) I joined my mum taking the dogs down to the woods and took a few snaps. Ill be uploading my July fav's either later tonight or tomorrow.

Until then, here's one of my dogs, Marley. He would undoubtedly win 'longest tongue of the year'
