Monthly Favourites | November


Heyy, so another month has flown by and it's now December which means it's technically officially Christmas time :) Who's excited *raises hand*




I love this lipstick a lot and have been wearing it a lot recently and yes I know it looks like a bit of an odd/scary colour but it doesn't look weird on don't worry. It's from an old avon collection 'colour trend' which is still going but sadly this colour was discontinued so it's unavailable to buy now which means I will have to savor it until it runs out :( Anyway the pigmentation is good and doesn't make your lips look/feel dry. I'm sad this lipstick is not being made anymore because I think I would have bought a new one when it runs out - sad times :( 


This lip gloss I bought only in October/late September I think and have been wearing it every since. It's very subtle and pretty, the perfect nude lipgloss.This doesn't make your lips look dry either. It was around £1.99 as are all the others from the natural collection. I don't think this brand gets enough attention personally, yes some of the products can be a bit shabby (sorry natural collection) but you can find some great products for such bargain prices! :) 


As you may or may have not seen on my blog, I actually did a blog post about this (click here) and if you did read it you will know that I absolutely love it!
I have almost finished little pot already which I know is really bad considering I only bought this a few weeks ago oopss. It completely changes the look of your lips -from chapped and horrible looking, to smooth and moisturized. I would say the price of this is a bit steep considering the ingredients used to make this is sugar,oil and food colouring and you've got your own lip exfoliator. All I can say is don't be put off by the price tag because it's really good for your lips and i'm sure your'll love it just as much as me.


If you've followed me for a long time now you will know that I mentioned this in my skincare post (click here). I am still using this but sadly it is starting to run out :( This has literally saved my skin form looking dry and patchy all autumn and makes a god base for make up. Good price, great moisturizer, keeps you face moisturized and fresh for a long time,can't go wrong with this face cream :)

I have noticed a lot of brands releasing their own collection of eyeshadow sticks/crayons and personally I think there amazing. I like the idea of these as they are so quick and easy to apply and blend really nicely or you can even use eyeshadow sticks as a base for eyeshadow which works just as well too. I really want to look into buying more of these form other brands so if you know of anymore or any good ones worth buying then please let me know :)

I think this one has to be my favourite...
This eyeshadow palette I picked up at TKmaxx can you believe as E.L.F products aren't sold in the UK I believe which sucks because after using this I want to have a look at some of their other products they have to offer. My palette palette is in the 'warm edition' and has the most beautiful neutral shades. I was so shocked when I first used this to find they were incredibly pigmented, after paying the price of £3.99 I wasn't expecting a whole lot but this proved me sooo wrong. I obviously couldn't swatch them all for you because I don't have a long enough arm, but I did swatch some of my most used/favourite shades for you :)

Monthly Favorites | October


Beauty/Skincare

Sanctuary Spa - 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask
This is a self heating face mask. I can honestly say this is one of the best face masks i've ever tried partly because of the fact it's self warming which masks you think something is definalty working or doing something to your face even if it's not haha. But seriously I do think it does everything it says on the packet and it makes your skin look and feel better after use and for £2.50 a packet I will certainly be buying this again :) 


Sleek Eyeshadow Palette - Oh So Special


As you can probably tell I love this eyeshadow palette and have been using it a lot lately and have featured it in a few of my blog posts now. It's perfect for any season or occasion which is why I love it so much as it has a range of neutrals and light pinks which are a mixture of matte and shimmer shades which all stay put through out the day :) love.

Natural Collection Loose Powder - Neutral Translucent


Personally I think people over look the natural collection stand because of it's prices and yes I agree some of their products can be a bit shabby but what do you expect for £1.99? But some of their products are just a complete bargain and really worth buying and trying out. This was my sisters first powder which I recommended to her as it wasn't expensive and she's younger than me so she doesn't wear too much make up anyway but when I caught her using this I was so so jealous so I went up to boots and bought myself one :) I even sometimes prefer it over my Rimmel stay matte powder (yes). If you haven't tried anything from natural collection before I highly suggest you do because you might surprise yourself like I did.

The Knitting & Stitching Show | Alexandra Palace

(warning very picture heavy post)
















A few days ago I went to London for a textiles exhibition and I absolutely loved it as it was right up my street. It was full of cute and inspirational hand made trinkets and beautiful art work. I would love to go again as I enjoyed it so much and found it helpful as well as educational. Click here which will take you to their website.
