Shockingly I’ve managed to go about two whole months without buying a single makeup related item. Moving house in December along with Christmas shopping and a few family birthday’s thrown in made me cringe at my Visa statements. Totally worth it, of course, but I pledge to pinch a few pennies for a few months and attempt to diminish my stash of half-empty (or half-full) makeup items. And pinch pennies I have! But that doesn’t stop me from browsing of course! So here are the few items that I’ve had my eye on recently and will hopefully be adding to my cart soon!

Looking at it now I actually think this might be my most achievable and attainable wish list. I often put things in these posts that super interest me but that I know I’ll probably never buy. This time round I have every intention of picking up these beauties and I know where I can find them all!

  1. Make Up For Ever – Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation
  2. NYX – Lip Lingerie in Embellishment
  3. Anastasia Beverley Hills – Liquid Lipstick in Vintage
  4. Too Faced – Shadow Insurance
  5. Urban Decay – Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup
  6. MAC – Oval 6 Brush
  7. NYX – Colour Correcting Palette
  8. Tarte – The Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer

What have you had your eye on recently? Anyone every tried any of these?


I Need Camera Advice


As a blogger I am embarrassingly ill-equipped in the photography department. I’ve always been quite self-conscious about my photo’s and every few months I pledge to spend more time and effort on what I consider to be the ‘face’ of any blog. I’ve even looked into taking some simple lessons. But all those attempts and what little skill I had managed to obtain recently went down the drain when my Nikon 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G lens kicked the bucket.


Blogmas Day 19: My Christmas Wishlist

And finally, after seeing so many gifting guides over the past week, today I share with you the coveted items that I’m lusting over this Christmas. Probably leaving this a little late, as Christmas is only 6 days away, but better late than never right?

I found this list quite difficult to put together this year. When it comes to gifting holidays I’m all about the giving and always forget about the getting, so I don’t put too much thought into it during such a hectic and busy time of year. But I thought about it for a little while and put together this small list of wonderful items that I’d be delighted to receive this Christmas! Hopefully I’m on Santa’s Nice List.

The first is the Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Palette. I’ve been swooning over this baby since it hit the shelves and each and every time I’m in Sephora I stop and stare, put it in my basket, then leave without it. I’m not quite sure why. Probably has something to do with the fact that I think I have way too many eyeshadow palettes, but then that’s not really a thing, right? This is a gorgeous palette of neutral and warm matte shades for the perfect smokey and contoured eyes. Just like the Kat Von D Shade and Light contour palette, it’s amazing formula’s and super long lasting. I love Kat Von D.

I’ve really been loving bits and pieces of my skin care routine lately, but I’m still lacking in something. Just not sure what it is yet. So I’d love to try some new and well known skin care brands and saviours and with holiday gift sets out this would be the best time to sample and try new brands. I’d love a set such as the Fresh Skincare Heroes, the Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo or the Caudalie Instant Radiance Set. 

Next, is the Original Beauty BlenderI don’t have one .How is it that I don’t have one? No clue. But I’ve really gotten into sponge application of my liquid foundations recently and my cheap Ulta version just ain’t doing it for me.

I’ve really been into reading witty and insightful books by some pretty influential ladies recently (as you may have seen from my Book Lovers Gift Guide) They might not be Malala or Hilary Clinton, but they’re quite influential in their own fields and have some pretty awesome stuff to say. I’d love to read Drew Barrymore’s Wildflower, a book of Drew’s life and adventures since she was 14.

Since I’ve been upping my camera game lately I’ve been taking so many more pictures and having so much fun with it! I’m still on the lookout for a new camera lens as the auto focus on mine is busted, but I still have to do the research and shop around before I shell out a few hundred bucks for one. But in the meantime, I’d love to get a cool lens for my iPhone 6 Plus camera! The iPhone camera is amazing quality and sometimes I actually reach for my phone rather than my Nikon. This set can be found on Amazon for $12.99 and comes with a Fish Eye, Wide Angle and Micro lens attachments to clip on to your iPhone! That would be awesome!

What do you have on your list this year?
