December 2016 Update

December was a slow month. Because of the Christmas break, I slowed down my posting and didn't post at all in the last few days of 2016 because I needed a break.

December 2016 Update

I invested in some Crown Brushes during the Black Friday sale in November, shared the Boots Makeup sponges I was kindly sent, Reviewed the Gerard Cosmetics Liquid lipsticks, Made a round-up of my favourite liquid lipsticks of the year, showed you how to style an M&S grey dress & finally reviewed the L'Oreal Clay Detox Mask. Phew!

November 2016 Update

Monthly Chat

November was a bit of a slow month. I feel like I spent my time waiting for something to happen, and boy did a lot happen during this month!

I went to the Showroom Beauty event as well as the Caudalie Covent Garden through 30 Plus Bloggers network, and I got a lot more serious about blogging. We finally got a new camera which I've been loving so far. It's this one in case you're curious.

Shop the blog is now a fab new page which has some of my favourite beauty products from Showroom Beauty ready for you to buy if you need inspiration for the festive season.

2) Umrah Packing For Women - Still my second top post.

3) Artist of Makeup Eyeshadow & Eyeliner Review and Swatches - Surprisingly my 3rd top favourite post, probably because I really slated the NYX eyeshadows in my reviews.

4) The Creative's Guide To The Bullet Journal - This has crept back into the top 5, and I will be giving bullet journaling another go in the new year hopefully.

5) Artist of Makeup - Eyeshadow & Eyeliner Swatches and Review - This is another oldie but goldie which has sunk back into the top 5.
