Ok so first off who else is glad January is fiiinally over!? Don’t get me wrong I’ve actually had a really nice month but blimey it feels long! I thought I’d share just a few things Ive been enjoying this month from fashion, makeup and a little bit of food.


Every girl needs a staple leather jacket and pair of boots in her life and that is exactly what I’ve been living in lately. I got the boots for Christmas and I don’t think I’ve ever loved another pair of shoes like I love these, they literally go with everything along with the jacket. This jacket has been around for a good couple of years but it’s one of those that I get out every year and I think I love it more & more with age!

Next up a few makeup bits, like the ABH Modern Renaissance palette, this little beauty has been on my makeup wishlist for a long time so when I opened it up on Christmas Day I was one very happy girl. My favourite shades are the orangey ones and pink ones but all of them are very pigmented yet blendable, it’s just a winner. I now want to give all the other palettes a go too because you know you can never have enough makeup right!? Thanks to a friend I’ve also discovered the NYX Liquid Suede lipsticks, they last for ages, have a matte finish but the best bit about them is they’re not drying at all..couldn’t recommend enough. They’re always in my handbag ready to grab for a quick top up throughout the day.

Moving on to a couple of non beauty related bits, my MacBook Air ..it has literally changed my life! I was using my very old laptop before which I had since I was about 12 and was mainly used for chatting on MSN & Myspace back in the day (showing my age there), it was so painfully slow. I’m still getting used to the MacBook but so far so good. If anybody has any good photography/blog related apps they could recommended it would be very much appreciated.

Lastly these little balls of heaven..Lindt Strawberries & Cream. I’m not normally a fan of Lindt chocolates I’ve just always found them way to sickly, I mean don’t get me wrong these are still SO sickly but its worth it. I won’t lie it was the pretty pink packaging which actually sold them to me (yup basic … thats me!) but I have no regrets.

  1. I’m living for these favourites. You cannot go wrong with a leather jacket number. I really wanted to buy the modern renaissance palette but settled on the violet voss holy grail palette instead as they had similar shades! The liquid suede lipsticks are so sofT!! such a fan of those. Also, the apps I use for my blog is basically just photoshop and lightroom I think it’s called. I edit my pictures on there although your photos look great already. PS. LOVE LOVE your hair xoxo
