One of my very unofficial new years resolutions was to wear more colour in terms of makeup. More specifically eye makeup. You see, with lipstick and nail varnish I don't have a problem going "out there", the brighter the better and that's something I'm known for with my lipstick. 

When I was having a makeup clear out a few months ago I binned all coloured eyeliner I owned with the vow never to use them and regretted it. When giving the chance to try out the Smudgeproof eyeliners from Lord & Berry* I started imagining myself with all sorts of colourful eyeliners. Sweeps of the blue on my lower lash line and the rest. 

However, when I got them I was drawn back into my comfort zone of the nudes, browns and grey colour. These colours are just too beautiful to make me want to leave the comfort of them and I've really enjoyed wearing eyeliner again - mainly because these really do not budge!! Long gone are the days where I have to keep checking in the mirror for the dreaded panda eyes.

The only downside is you have to sharpen them, and a couple of them arrived with not a lot of product visible at the top, if that makes sense? I much prefer the twist up eyeliners - less hassle. How lazy.

Have you used the Lord & Berry Smudgeproof Eyeliners before? There are available in Boots & Asos and are £7.50.

Any tips for getting me to wear coloured eyeliner?

Boutique Collection...

sainsburys-boutique-makeup


sainsburys-boutique-makeup

Welcome to a fairly new selection of products* that have been launched by Sainsburys. I was stupidly excited to see Sainsburys launch their own makeup range, mainly because I am a Sainsburys girl through and through. This range was created in partnership between two makeup artists - Jo Saville and Sophia Price. 

All the products range from £4 to £7 so you can imagine just how many people will be popping these in their trolley amongst the weekly fruit and veg - me included. Plus the range is promised to be long lasting, highly pigmented and over all just really impressive.

Currently I have only used the nail polishes and they are amazing, look out for a post soon. I am yet to try the lip glosses and eyeshadows. I will be using them this week so look out for a post on those next week! 

What do you think to Sainsburys new makeup?

My camera equipment for my Canon 1100d...

Monday, 27 January 2014
camera-equipment-cannon-1100d

camera-equipment-cannon-1100d

In the past couple of months I have bought some snazzy new and inexpensive camera equipment. I always thought you had to spend millions on camera equipment, but in the last few months Ive realised that you don't. Hopefully in upcoming posts (and videos) you will see a difference in them, but it's not so much what you can see that's amazed me, it's how much these products have helped in making blogging just that little bit easier. 

The first addition was something that was purchased at the time of buying the camera, that's the Canon 50mm lens. We managed to come to a deal with the guy in Currys for the bundle so we went for it and I am so glad that I did. This lens creates beautiful photos with the minimum effort required. Blurry backgrounds and a heavy focus, I love it. This is the cheapest lens from canon you can buy - I think and there are a couple of downsides. You have to have the camera quite far away form you for filming, I haven't actually tried this properly yet but it's a little annoying. The other thing that annoys me a little is that you have to have the steadiest hand ever when taking photos, otherwise they are a blurry mess. However, not a problem for me thanks to my next addition.

A tripod, I finally have a tripod! This above all the other items makes me feel like a true profesh ;) I have the Hama Tripod, which was from amazon as a Christmas present. I would not be without one now, especially with my shakey hands. Everything is just so much easier. I no longer have to balance the camera on top of my hamster cages! Plus you can pick up one for around £10 which is perfect to just keep at home to blog with and they fold away very compact.

This winter has seemed darker than any other time I've been blogging for. Maybe that's because now I care much more about how my pictures look, but I've found it a nightmare. A quick search on Amazon lead me to this lighting set and for only £20 I decided to give it a go. I didn't have the room for the large fancy smancy ones and this is super compact - and it runs off batteries! This light certainly hasn't disappointed, allowing me to blog in pitch black if I wanted too and it has filters so you can change the tone of the lighting. 

The one cheeky little purchase that actually allowed me to blog again whilst I borrow a laptop is a little USB adaptor because there is no SD card reader in the laptop I'm using at the moment. Without this little £1.50 device I wouldn't actually be typing right now.

If you don't have the inclination to fork out on a new lens then I have the perfect solution for you, these lenses from ebay. These are actually magnificent. I cannot say anything else. They screw onto the front of your lens and vary in strength from +1 to +10 so you can really have a massive range here with only the 4 lenses, and they are £8! This seller has so many camera goodies you should really have a nose.  

The one item that was missing from my kit - ohh snazzy can I call it a kit now? - was a camera remote. After a bit of googling I came to realise that with the Canon 1100d it's not as simple as buying a wireless remote. You have to buy a specific type like this one which has a wireless receiver you attach to your camera. Again this is another device that has made blogging so much easier and I should imagine it will with filming too. I don't have to worry about a steady hand or taking millions of photos just to have one good photo. 

So what do you think to my goodies?

What are your camera must haves?

My Week #3&4...

Sunday, 26 January 2014



So after My Week #2 I have already failed at rounding my week up every week.. that's a lot of times to say the word week in a sentence. Anyway last weekend I was treated to the most yummiest roast dinner by my friend and her boyfriend. The three of us girls from our office had an amazing afternoon - eating and playing Harry Potter Scene It. Last Sunday was five years to the day since I had last saw my Bampy and I was feeling really down in the dumps, but an amazing meal and even better company really pulled me out of the slump. I loved the fresh flowers on the table too, I really want to find some nice fake flowers because Matt has bad allergies and if I bought home a fresh bunch he would sneeze until they left the flat.

Last week I had some really good news for a change, my probationary period in work has been ended early so I now have a permanent job again which is nice to feel job security again. I celebrated this by buying three designer handbags. That is a bit of a hefty statement, however they are ALL ebay bargains and I bought all three for alot less that the price of one! Post coming soon... But I am in love. The theory behind this is that I am sick of having handbags that break all the time so I have decided to invest in better made bags, on a budget. I messaged buyers asking if they would do a buy it now price and all three did - for which I was very grateful.

This weekend has been so productive, I've sorted through all my clothes, shoes and bags - have a load to sell, donate and give to my sister which is nice. Although it will be a lot nicer when it's out of my dining room. Right now I'm sat blogging whilst Matt is on COD and I have two crazy guinea pigs popcorning over the room and Bertie looking less than impressed.

Hope you have had a good week!

Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation in Fair...

Friday, 24 January 2014
Perricone-no-foundation-foundation-review-swatch

Perricone-no-foundation-foundation-review-swatch


Frustratingly I have had this foundation for ages, casually sat there in all it's brown bottle glory on my dressing table. The reason for the lack of use? My tan from way back in October is still around, I'm still no way near my usual foundation shades and this hasn't matched my skin colour ever. However it's now just about matching so I've been able to wear it out and about.

For someone who naturally gravitates to those foundations promising full/maximum coverage a product that was called 'no foundation' foundation intrigued me. Would I flee like I usually do with tinted moisturisers? Is it more than a tinted moisturiser? Another glorified BB/CC cream?

First off, fair seems to match my skin well and I still have a tan hanging around so I don't think it would suit the paler gals among us. The coverage is obviously very sheer, hence the name, so don't expect it to cover the blemishes and dark circles - but that's what concealers for. Providing a very healthy look to the skin this gel-like foundation absorbs quickly into the skin, especially with the light buffing motion of my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. My skin has become rather dry lately, I think that's down to the heating, cold weather and medication I've been taking which has made some of my foundations unwearable. However, I can wear the Perricone No Foundation Foundation with ease, one pump being enough for half of my face. 

This little bottle is full to the brim with skincare ingredients, not to mention the SPF30 which sadly is something I forget all the time. Which over time reduces fine lines and continues to moisturise so over time you skin looks amazing. 

I was determined not to look at the price tag before I'd used this for a little while and in my mind I'd said that if it had cost around £25 I'd have repurchased it. Imagine my surprise when I look to find that it is almost double that. £47. The only downside for me, however, should my wage increase and lifestyle change it's certainly something I will go back too.

Have you tried the Perricone No Foundation Foundation?

The five minute, five product face...

Thursday, 23 January 2014
five-product-face-review-swatch

Since starting working full time over 3 years ago I have managed to shave nearly an hour off my getting ready time in the morning. Through a combination of straightening my hair at night and refining my makeup routine this is what I've come up with to allow me to apply the slap in just 5 minutes.

First off, a primer that has helped my skin so much since I've started using it - the La Roche Posay - Efficlar Duo. Keeps my skin hydrated during the day and keeps my foundation on that bit longer. For a foundation with staying power I head for my Vichy Dermablend in Nude, this is used on days I have meetings or need to make sure that at 3pm I still look like I've just applied my makeup. I can use a tiny bit and buff it in quickly with just about any foundation brush I lay my hands on because it blends so easily - just be quick about it. A couple of spots of the Clinique concealer, I have no idea what shade/type this is (helpful) all I know is that it works in covering the massive dark circles that surround my eyes. A sweep of my favourite mascara and bronzer and I'm ready for the world... well...after coffee.

What's your go to products when you have to leave the house in a hurry?

Radical Skincare... Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads...

Wednesday, 22 January 2014
radical-skin-care-exfoliating-pads-review

radical-skin-care-exfoliating-pads-review

Since being converted over to the wonderful world of chemical exfoliants I haven't looked back and these exfoliating skin care pads from Radical Skincare* are no exception. I've always been one to be cautious of the already soaked pads type products after hating them since using the nail polish remover ones - I know crazy. But with these I have been taken by surprise. 

I didn't want to go all out and use these everyday so I've been using them about 3-4 times a week in the night before bedtime. They contain numerous ingredients to help sort out signs of ageing by promoting cell turn over, removing dead skin cells and much more. 

I have to say I have been very lucky with my skin and I've never really suffered with spots, large pores and the likes. But I do have one problem and one that I have moaned about on here often enough. On my arms I have Keratosis Pilaris and this is also on my face. Imagine where a guy would have side burns going into a beard and that is where I have bumps. Little annoying bumps under my skin that feel dry and horrible. Depending on whether I am going through a flare up these can't even be covered by foundation sometimes. I also have some underneath my chin.

Since using the Radical Skincare exfoliating pads these spots have all but gone. I now have smooth skin all over my face, even with the cold weather outside and heating on inside. I'm so happy and it's made me start to appreciate the sheerer coverage foundations. Something which I never thought I would be happy to do.

I will 100% be continuing to use these. I've wanted the spots to go for years. Now if only they did body ones for my arms...

Cauliflower Rice...

Tuesday, 21 January 2014




Before you all turn your nose up and click off this blog post for me suggesting cauliflower instead of normal rice - just give it a try!

It's no secret - I am trying to get healthier and loose weight and one of the healthy swap options is to use cauliflower rice instead of white/brown rice. All you need to do it grate up the cauliflower (easier with a food processor) and lightly fry it until it's a soft as you like.

I added some chilli flakes in mine for a little bit of a kick.

Would you try cauliflower rice?

Bedroom Wishlist...

Monday, 20 January 2014


As you've probably guess from my most recent posts since my return to blogging I have been really getting into making a house a home. From Christmas decorations, fairy lights and cushions to plants, canvases and more animals, I've been loving it.

My thoughts now turn to the bedroom (ohh err!) and making that a place of peace and quiet, my little paradise if you will. I really struggle with sleeping, not the actual sleeping part but the getting to sleep bit. Sometimes I can lie awake until the early hours getting really frustrated and more annoyed with how tired I will be the next day.
 
Anyway, recently we've upgraded the duvet to 13.5 tog and bought two more pillows bringing our total to six! We now have what feels like a giant marshmallow on top of us and so many pillows that our heads are suitably snug. The only downside? Our bed is so comfortable that getting out of it in the morning is pretty upsetting, the one thing that would make it even better - a really thick mattress cover. I would also like some decorative pillows on our bed now, you know to be one of THOSE people who have display cushions, for apparent reason. This pink one with a floral design is so beautiful, I'd love to have it on my bed, but the price tag just isn't in my budget - yet!

We've had the same bedding and curtains set for two years since we moved in, we do have a spare that we use when our favourite one is in the wash, but it's soon off and our usual one back on. I have a idea of my perfect bedroom where I can have everything all white and pastel colours and I've seen some lovely duvet sets on the Harrods Bedding where it's actually not as expensive as I thought it would be. I quite like those duvets where it's all block coloured and there is contrasting colours on each side, I hope I make sense there.

We've got really dark furniture in our bedroom and personally I think this was a huge mistake, I now long for white clean looking units (not just to take blog photos on I promise)  to make the room feel bigger and more spacious. I do like the MALM range from ikea that we have, just want a different colour now. I think candles and diffusers of the sorts look amazing on white and this one from Dr Vranjes sounds yummy - ginger and lime! I like the vintage look of the bottle.

Clearly my theme is the whole vintage/shabby chic thing... whether Matt allows me to turn the whole flat into this will be another story!

Ebay Makeup Brushes...

Saturday, 18 January 2014
Ebay-Makeup-Brushes


Ebay-Makeup-Brushes

These brushes were a bit of a no brainer purchase from ebay after seeing the posts on Hannah's blog and then Leanne's.  I'm not going to go into too much detail in what other brushes you can compare them too, we all know this by now. They are cheap, cheerful and have surprised me in how much of a good job they actually do. 
There is no getting away from how cheap they feel, you can definitely tell they are a budget buy. Don't think that should put you off, they blend things well and pick up colour easily.
I think they would be perfect as a starter kit or as part of a travel kit when you don't want to travel with your best brushes.

After holiday foundation saviours...

Friday, 17 January 2014
bourjois-bronzing-primer-review-swatch


I came back from Mexico way back in October and I tanned brilliantly. This was a complete surprise to me, but one that was warmly received. I'd never been on holiday as an adult so I didn't know how my skin would react - would just like to point out that I wore factor 50 for most of the holiday and I didn't sit in the sun all that much! 
The only problem? My skin was too dark for any of the bases I had, I didn't even wear foundation for the first 3 weeks of being home and even now, 2 months on I am still too dark for my usual shades. This has resulted in me going through 2 bottles of Bourjois Healthy Mix in shade 56. Which I still probably match but I am getting by with the help of these two products from Bourjois in allowing me to use my usual shades of foundations. 

I had been using the serum as a base on it's own when I first started wearing makeup again, but now it acts as either a base before my foundation or mixed together on the back of my hand to warm the colour up so it matches my skin. The same goes for the primer, however I also like to use this as a bronzer too. Kinda how I use the chanel bronzer but for a much cheaper price tag.

Did you have any holiday must haves?

Getting my bake on...

Wednesday, 15 January 2014
baking-blogger-post-review

I think that a few people might be hinting at me to get baking more myself? For Christmas I was so lucky and was bought some lovely baking bits and pieces from my Aunty and Uncle and my friend from work.

Now, I do like to bake a cake every now and again, but I really want to become more adventurous in the kitchen - ooh err! My signature bake was first cupcakes, made from scratch I might add. Then I moved onto making Victoria Sponges. Granted nothing is too different between them, but then I see and hear about the amazing delights that Sophia (friend from work) creates in her kitchen and I am inspired. One day for lunch Sophia had even bought me a bread roll in that she had made the night before - she is super talented!

The book from Sophia has just an amazing selection of things to make your cakes look so fancy, from the different icing techniques to all the ways to create marbled cakes I can see I am going to have so much fun. Who knows, if it goes well I will blog about it. Nobody needs to see a soggy bottom ;).  

From my Aunty and Uncle I had these amazing measuring cups. These will come in so handy because there has been numerous times when I see "cups" as a measurement in a recipe and I'm stood there with a pint glass, tumbler and a shot glass wondering which is which! The same goes for spoons and this set will look lovely on display too.

Here's hoping you see more baking posts on here!

Gold Band Rings...

Here is one trend that I will definitely be taking with me form last year, the above the knuckle/stacking rings. I love that there are so many different ways to wear them, plus these were really not that expensive from ASOS, sadly they seem to be out of stock now, but I'm sure a quick internet search will find alternatives, probably on ebay.

Did you like the above the knuckle trend?

My Week #2...

Sunday, 12 January 2014




I knew it wouldn't be long before a makeup related post popped up on my blog, although with this being the first full week back in work I didn't really do anything too exciting to blog about. However, one day this week I popped into boots just to pick up a new mascara. Thats one thing that I've learnt that I really can't hoard because they just go off before I've even used them. Since my last one had gone off I picked up the Va Va Voom one from 17 because it was on offer for £4. My favourite mascara wasn't in stock - that's the Rimmel Accelerator one so I've settled for this in blackest black, I hope it's good. 

I also wanted to pick up a new concealer, if you'd read my post about taking a little more me time then you will have read that I am suffering from really bad skin at the moment. Break-outs galore and hating it. I'd read a lot of great things about the 17 Phwoarr concealer in medium  so decided to pop it in my basket. The fair colour looked far too light on my hands when I swatched the tester, especially as I still have a tan going on!

There are always those unnecessary purchases that just somehow make their way to the till with me and this time it came in the form of two lipsticks. The Stay Pout Lipsticks are something I'd never seen in store before but fell in love with these two bold colours. They are on offer at the moment 2 for £6 which is a bargain. I've taken some pictures today so look out for a post on these bad boys soon.

Off I hopped to the till and got presented with a No7 voucher. These are dangerous and amazing at the same time. Annoyingly the makeup voucher has been reduced from £5 to £3 off since the last time they did the voucher deal but I guess that's still money off for nothing. Anyway I picked up one of my favourite cleansers the No7 Hot Cloth Cleanser.  Whilst this isn't expensive at £9 regularly but with the voucher this is such a bargain. 

Bought any unnecessary makeup things recently?

Making a house a home...

I would be lying if I said I could have spent close to thousands in Homebase the other afternoon. We'd only popped in for a look...and ended up coming out with a massive smile on my face carrying all these goodies up to the flat. 

We'd had two mini Christmas tree's in the flat and wanted to put them somewhere that didn't look as festive so we decided to buy a short but wide plant pot to go on the floor in our lounge. We've potted a little ivy plant in there to bulk it up and I'm really pleased with how it looks. Hopefully we wont kill it like we did with the poinsettia....

In the next aisle were the most amazing cushions I have ever seen, & ones  they are on sale at the moment too. With no hesitation I picked up two for our sofa. The grey colour fits well with our living room colours of chocolate brown, blue and grey. 

In the same section, where I could have bought everything, we picked up the two heart based items. A knitted motto and white wicker heart . Both are no more than a couple of pounds but make such nice additions to our home. The knitted heart hangs on our lounge door and the wicker heart sits nicely behind our HOME ornaments on our fireplace. I love all the white ornaments, walls and things, I like how clean it looks with accents of colours. We also bought the brightest blue basket to keep all the things that just get dumped on the dining room table, I think we are all guilty of that one?

The long artificial flower things were something that we picked up in The Range because we had a clear vase that had baubles in over Christmas and it looked so bare. I've put them in there along with the pine cones that were in a lovely bunch of flowers I had from the lovelies at WitchSkin Care. 

I think it's easy to forget to buy the little things to make your house (or flat) seem like a home. To put your mark on the place that you rest your head is such a lovely feeling and something that we have are making a conscious effort to do at the moment. We are also trying to find things that we want to take with us when we are ready to move into a house.

What are your favourite things to add to your home?

The weekly brush wash...

Ahh the weekly brush wash, the part of the week I dread the most - second only to the ironing. I seem to use so many brushes in a week and I have no idea why. But I do try and make the process a little less painful by settling down and watching some of my favourite youtubers - this weeks choice was Eloise.

The process is pretty simple. I take all the dirty brushes, swirl them in alcohol, rub on a towel and BAM they look lovely and new. I can't be bothered with all the soap and water methods - I get through far too many brushes in a week.

What's your brush washing routine?

A little more me time...

Monday, 6 January 2014
pamper-night

pamper-night

pamper-night-nail-polish

pamper-night

Sneakily putting the heating on for the hour of my bath time is something I do all the time. Especially in winter (and spring, summer and autumn) I throw my pjs (read: onsie) onto the radiator, put my snuggliest dressing gown on top and kick my slippers off underneath. Snuggly, radiator warm clothes are the bee's knees after a bath.

This weekend I took probably about two hours out of my Sunday to really have some "me" time, something I have realised that I need to do more often and most certainly on a nightly basis to get a good skincare routine in place. You see, my skin has been suffering from my laziness ad general well-being of late and I'm getting spots. Spots are never something I have suffered from before, only the once a month monster on my chin. 

Before going anywhere near the bathroom I needed to whip off the old nail polish that was so badly chipped it looked awful. I don't have a favourite nail polish remover I usually just pick up what ever is on offer. My nail beds were so dry that I popped a little cuticle oil on too.

Whilst the bath was running I double cleansed with the Liz Early Hot Cloth Cleanser. Getting all the left over makeup, mascara and general crap off my face. I then put on the first face mask, Avon - Clear Skin Black Mineral Clay Mask. Top tip - I use a hair removal cream spatula to put on face masks, much less messier than applying with fingers or a brush. This mask from Avon went all over my spotty area, mostly my chin and fore head. I then applied the rejuvenating mask over the rest of my face. 

Whilst that little combination worked it's magic I laid back in the bath and watched some BBC iplayer - one of my favourite things to do is watch random things whilst in the bath. I was never one for reading in the bath, my hands get too cold our of the water. I washed my hair in some purple shampoo, more on that another time and used the combination of LUSH Ocean Salt and Aqua Mirablis to give my skin a good exfoliation, another thing that I have neglected as of late. Oh and shaved me legs ;). By the time I'd done all that it was time to remove the face masks.

Before putting my amazingly warm onsie back on, I applied a little oil to my hair and wrapped it in a turban towel, rubbed a lot of bio oil into my horrendously dehydrated skin, applied some origins super spot remover and plucked my stupidly overgrown eyebrows. 

Heated night wear on I headed back to my bedroom and put on some youtube videos before settling down to do my nails. The combo came in the form of the Boutique Polishes from Sainsburys* a gorgeous deep red and gold. Whilst these colours are so associated with Christmas I just couldn't resist and in just one coat I had the perfect nails. Personally I love this deep red colour with short nails so I cut down mine and squared them off. 

When my nails had dried I used the Radical Exfoliating Pads* for the first time. I got really interested in chemical exfoliators since using the Clarins one so hopefully these will be just as good. After that I added a new step to my skincare, one which I have never used before and that is a facial oil from Declor*. Right now my skin feels the softest and most cleanest ever. 

Before going to the land of nod, the final few steps were to blow dry my hair, apply face cream in the form of No 7 Beautiful Skin Night Cream and hand cream. I was lucky enough to get this amazing Shea set from L'occitane off Matt's step brother who lives in France. I might invest in some cotton gloves to let the cream sink in like I do when I put cream on my feet and socks to sleep in.

The one thing that I forgot to do on this pamper night? My toes! Just as well it's still boots and socks weather.

So this is me making a personal vow to maintain a skincare routine every single morning and night. Not to this detailed extent - this will be done twice weekly and I'm hoping my skin will improve.

This is where you lovely lot come in, I need some skin care recommendations. For all stages of routines, I'd love to know everything that you use, especially for spotty "normal" skin.

Charli...
