Life is for living

The last 2 weeks have been a wee bit hectic for me; I moved 100 miles to a new town, started a new job and had a few 'things sent to test me' arise. But I'm ready to get back to blogging after a slight hiccup...

Home isn't home until you make brownies right?

Thing's I'm loving...

You know sometimes when you think, I really really like that. The lipstick you find yourself reaching for every single day, those so-cute but so-comfy flats that go with everything, that feeling when that someone texts you. Those things you just can't imagine ever getting bored of?

Well...these are my top 3 things at the moment

1) This combination

New Look Jacket (this one is from 915 but you can get it from the adults range as well or similar is available from River Island and Topshop)
For me its great to throw on and looks effortlessly good with the contrast PU and khaki. I'm not a big khaki/armyy fan so this is more than enough of that influence for me! The shoes are from Primark (£12) and I love the the ideal mix for me of studs and spikes, still girly and still pretty. Ideal for dressing up jeans. I particularly love them with these light blue ones. (£15.99)
 Also from New Look childrens haha (I love being small sometimes)
2) Fresh Brows
Mmmmm there is no other feeling that freshly waxed brow, I've been a BeneBrow girl since the beginning and I've never looked back. I adore the girl that does them, I've found most of the Benefit counter/brow girls to be and I love how they look when she's done. I just pop a bit off colour on to fill them in and then a bit of wax then hey presto I'm done. In my opinion eyebrows can make the biggest difference. 

A benefit brow arch cost £11.50 and there are counters nationwide(:

3) Nails! This is my go to combination at the moment. It looks gorgeous and feminine and I'm having a last minute glitter/shimmer fun before I have to start my new job and go all professional when it comes to my nails

Models own Utopia and Indian Ocean available from Boots (£5)
(You also get a free nail art pen for free if you buy two Models own products from Boots)

What's everyone else's little obsessions right now?

Leopards with Pink Spots?


I am trying not to spend so much money because of moving house and things, so I've been cutting back. However I picked up this little number which looks awfully familiar in my opinion to this TooFaced bad boy!

At just wait for it...less than 10% of the cost. (It also comes in a Benefit style box instead of a round compact but I like boxes anyway! I definitely didn't drop it and make some of it break (oops)

This w7 Africa Bronzer its lovely for me as a pale one! I do need to make sure I give it a good swirl with a different brush (This one is shocking; but who am I to complain for £1.99) to avoid dark patches.
It has a nice amount of colour payoff, I personally like buildable bronzers so I don't go from Milky to Oompa Loompa in 10 seconds.

As you can hopefully see from the pictures, there's a definitely mix of the pinky blush and darker bronzes to give a nice sun kissed look without going overkill. I am really happy with my little purchase. For only £1.99 from Savers! I'll be honest I've never really been in a Savers before so was pleasantly surprised at finding this in my new town. 

Oh and just a quick face 'on face' photo!

Anyone else been pleasantly surprised by a shop they don't usually go into lately?
