2014 The Year Of….

Untitled

The Selfie…..just kidding. Though trust me, you wouldn’t want to see a close up of my face right now, I’ve been sick all over Christmas. It’s been a quiet one in this house, myself and the small boy have spent our days in front of the fire watching Harry Potter movies. His father has been dodging the germs by carrying on with the usual Christmas tradition of going out and getting hammered. Chance would be a fine thing. Anyway, I digress.

For me anyway, beautywise, 2014 has been mostly about SpaceNK & Charlotte Tilbury. Or the year I gave all my money to SpaceNK & Charlotte Tilbury. Continue reading

Prepare to have a serious case of “The Wants”

Hourglass cosmetics are bringing out an Ambient Lighting Blush Palette this Autumn!!!! Yes you heard right, all the mega stardom of Ambient Lighting palette & the Ambient Lighting Blushes rolled into one. I read about it on The Sunday Girl last night & instantly had to investigate. It will include Mood Exposure, Luminous Flush & a new shade called Incandescent Electra. You can get a quick glimpse of what it will look like in this tongue in cheek pr video here. It’s at 4 minutes in. You’re going to want this bad, so maybe best to start saving now as if the Ambient Lighting Palette price is anything to go by it’ll be about €70.

Haulin in SpaceNK, Boots & Brown Thomas

So I was away for the weekend in Dublin & I went a small bit mad shopping with Karen from Lovely Girlie Bits. I’d planned on getting some clothes & boots & some beauty bits. But none of the clothes/shoes I wanted were in stock so I blew the entire budget on beautification. Plus some jewellery from Parfois thrown in for good measure. I also ordered a few bits online in the last few weeks. So here are the pics of my haul. I’ll do some proper reviews once I’ve had a chance to try everything out, but for the moment, here is my haul in all it’s gluttony glory. Continue reading
