Easy come, easy go, that's just how you live....

Hey my lovelies 

Today was spent with my lovely Mummy
We work together so this morning we braved the icy roads together to get in to the workshop Which is in the middle of nowhere! The joys of living in the countryside...
It was our mini Christmas do, a lunch out at the Smith and Western, an American cowboy themed restaurant, which was awesome. My favourite restaurant where we went for my 20th birthday this year :)

After that we dropped my Dad home and popped into town
Wandered around New Look and picked up a few bits, that Mum's taken home to wrap up for Christmas Eve (our own Christmas day this year)
So I shall post them after Christmas

Have to say I've been pleasantly surprised with the stock New Look are bringing out at the moment, a lot of it is extremely on trend and I have my eye on lots of bits and pieces in there
I really want to get my little mitts on some peg leg trousers but struggle to find some suit me :/ One day....

Anywho we also popped into Superdrug where I saw they had the Accessorize make up range in AND 3 for 2 on all make-up...well I couldn't say no that would be rude would it not?!

This weeks purchases: 

Now that I've finished with everyone else's gifts I got myself a few things,
just to tide me over until Christmas day

Aussie haircare was on 2 for £6 as usual in boots and I ran out of heat defence spray so thought I'd try a new one, I welcome 'Take the the heat' with open arms :) and also the 'Luscious Long' leave in conditioner, love this stuff. I've only used it a few times but my hair is so soft after I dry it. Happy bunny!

My mini MAC 'haul' is also pictured
I'm an NW15, finally I have a shade :) woop
I got the Studio Sculpt SPF 15 foundation, Mineralize Skin finish powder and the 188 brush.
I couldn't be happier with this little lot, my skin looks glowy and it covers my uneven redness. Yay!!

The Accessorize blushes are shades 'Starlet' on the left and 'Pretty in Pink' on the right


Pretty in Pink

I've wanted to try these for a while but I'm always a bit hesitant with buying make up online unless I know the quality of the product
So I was rather happy when I spotted these in Superdrug today and made a beeline to swatch them

They're so pretty in the pan and when swatched have just enough shimmer for my liking
I tend to stick to my Benefit 'Coralista' and Nars 'Orgasm' so these two colours are a nice change 

Left: Starlet
Right: Pretty in Pink

The fact they aren't highly pigmented is a bonus for me as I tend to have issues with being light-handed when it comes to blush, I can build these up to my desired outcome. I cannot wait to try these properly but I've just had a lovely shower and smothered myself in moisturiser. I'll take photo when I do wear these tomorrow.

For £5.50 each I think these are extremely reasonable and I'm tempted to go back for more, the bronzer shade is calling me.

I don't think I'll have a chance to blog now before Christmas as I'm off to my Mum's tomorrow afternoon and won't be back home until Friday evening, and obviously it's Christmas on Saturday so I might be quiet for the next few days :) 

Have a fantastic Christmas everyone
