Up until a few months ago, I was constantly chopping and changing my skincare routine. I have a real thing for skincare and I love trying out new products whenever I can, which means that I've never really had a routine as every day was just one big experiment! I feel as though now, I'm really happy with all of the products that I'm using every day and am in a position that I can share them with you!

It's no secret that I am obsessed with stationary and find almost any excuse to buy it. This obsession definitely includes planners and diaries! Last year I was obsessed with my filofax and getting 50 thousand inserts, stickers, tape, you name it, I had it crammed in my filofax. But this year I wanted to try out something a little bigger and different, and thats when I came across Kikki.K. If you've never heard of them, they have the most beautiful stationary, diaries, homeware etc that you could ever imagine!

Last week my Auntie and Uncle went to New York, so I (of course) made a list of all of the things I wanted them to bring me back from Sephora! Some of the products you can get in the UK, but I felt like I could justify buying more if it was from New York... That works doesn't it? This is a bit more of an Anastasia Beverly Hills with a hint of Kat Von D haul, but hey ho! I'm going to share with you all of the beauuutiful products that I purchased and my first impressions...

I mentioned this Flawless Matte Eyeshadow palette back in October as I thought it looked like a great dupe for the MAC Warm Neutral Palette (for a fraction of the price) and I really wanted to try it out. I go through stages with eyeshadows of being obsessed with really shimmery, sparkly ones and then being stuck on mattes for ages. I'm going through a matte stage again at the moment and am loving this palette from Makeup Revolution! It has a really nice variety of colours in it (lots of cool and warm tones) and includes colours that I wouldn't have particularly tried until I used this palette (such as blues) which I now really like using. I would say this palette has something for everyone and is great to have as I find myself reaching for it most days!

I haven't done a monthly favourites in a long long time, so it's given me a chance to find and fall in love with a load of new products. I have to admit, I haven't really been able to buy and try many products lately, but i've definitely found a select few which i've really liked! There's quite a few random bits and bobs in this months, but here is what i've been loving lately!

First of all I just want to apologise (again) for the lack of posts lately, I have been super busy and have been off the past 2 weeks as I had an operation and was hoping to get a lot of posts put up then, but just didn't get round to it as the time flew by! But I am definitely going to get back on it now, as I miss it! Back in January my sister got married at the Long Furlong Barn in Sussex, it's such a pretty venue, and as it was Winter the whole place was decorated amazingly and like winter wonderland! I thought I would share with you some of the photos from the day, as the photos have just come back from the photographer and look so nice! I had the challenge of doing the brides and the bridesmaids make up on the day, which at first was terrifying but I think it went okay!

The beauty box spam continues! I always get more excited about my Glossybox coming than my Birchbox. I think it's because they consistently send really good products and a lot of full sized products, but that's not to say I don't love my Birchbox every month! This was my first 'normal' box that didn't have a theme, and it had a really good variety of products in it! Here's what it included...

First of all apologies for massively slacking on my blog, and well all social media lately.. I've been soo busy, I had my sister's wedding recently which made me really busy and also just a lot of personal things which have meant it hasn't been that easy to sit down and write my blog. But also, I didn't want to blog because I felt I 'had' to, so I would have rather waited until I feel like I can and want to again. As I haven't been posting much lately it means that there may be a few beauty boxes in a row stacking up from January, so sorry for the beauty box spam! But anyway, back to the post! January's Birchbox had some really great products in it, and also some lovely extras as it was a collaboration with Pinterest, here's what it included...

I don't know about anyone else, but I go through stages of being obsessed with different brands. Lately for me, it has been Nars. I've always loved Nars, but working at Space NK over Christmas lead me to fall in love with so many more of their products. Working there was very dangerous, as my wages went straight in and came straight out again! I would make mental lists of everything that I wanted to buy during my shifts! But it definitely helped me to try a lot of products that I wouldn't have necessarily picked up before. Here are some of the beautiful Nars products that i've picked up over the past few weeks...

It's that beauty box time of the month again, and this time it's the Birchbox December Luxe edition... I'm really loving receiving my boxes now, especially as my Birchbox and Glossybox come at different times of the month, it means that i've always got something to look forward to. However, I did have some troubles with this box, I got an email telling me it had been dispatched on the 9th, and 10 days later I still hadn't received it.. So I emailed customer services and they told me they didn't have me on their database, even though they had taken the money! I then emailed someone else from customer services and it got sorted out and I received my replacement within 2 days. But it was still very odd... So I am quite interested to see how easily I get my January box! Anyway, enough moaning, let me show you all the goodies I got...
