Welcome to 2014! I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone and how much fun it was compared to previous years. I suppose one of my highlights for 2013 would have to be discovering blogging! I’m really enjoying it and I hope you are enjoying reading what I write!
In this post, I am going to share with you some of my favourite items from the last few weeks of 2013.
Mavala Nail Polishes – I have had the Mavala nail biting detterant for a long time, but I had never thought to try their polishes before. In fact, I didn’t even know you could buy them in the UK! Towards the beginning of December I was searching the Internet looking for the perfect green nail polish when I stumbled across Mavala Peacock Green. I bought it, tried it, and adored it. I then got two more in my advent calendar: London and Pure Diamond. These polishes last and last without chipping and their opacity is great.
Floral rings – I spotted these little flower rings in Accessorize a couple of days ago and picked them up for £6 each. I always wear the same ring on my ring finger, so I decided to buy them a little bigger so I can wear them on my index fingers or my thumbs. I think they are adorable!
Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner – I am pretty new to lip liner. I’ve always stuck to nude shades in the past so I’ve never understood the necessity. This winter I have been getting more and more into darker lipsticks like red or wine, but struggled with the lipsticks bleeding and not looking very polished. I read online that you could use a nude lip liner if you don’t have the correct shade, so I dug this one out again. It makes all the difference; my lips look really professional and polished.
L’Oreal True Match Blush in True Rose – This is my go to blush at the moment because it lasts really well and it makes my skin look really fresh and glowing. I have linked my full review below.
Bourjois Smoky Eyes Trio in Rose Vintage – This month my obsession with rose gold shades has led me to put my trusty MUA Undressed and Heaven and Earth palettes to one side (save for the brown shadow for my brows) in favour of this gorgeous little trio. This creates the perfect subtle smoked eye for daytime wear. Again, my review of this product is linked below.
Yankee Candle Christmas Eve – Finally, a real Christmas treat. I bought this for my best friend for Christmas and it smelt so good I decided I had to have one too. According to Yankee Candle, the fragrance is “Traditional Christmas scents of a warm hearth, sugared plums, and candied fruits”. It’s perfect for anyone who wants a warm winter fragrance but doesn’t like spicy or cinnamonny scents.
