Beauty Wish List

Two Foundations I can't wait to try.

Chintz - I saw this lipstick on Kiera Knightly and have been in love with it ever since.

I got wait listed for this last summer. But I missed their call, so I guess they sold it to the next person who picked up their phone. I'm gonna try again for it this year.
I Lorraine Stanick recommend this quad, I'm in love with the neutral yet smokey possibilities.
Just Because!
Freaking YSL Rouge Volupte in Nude Beige. I also wanted Sensual Silk but it's been discontinued.
Harmony For Eyes 5-colour palette in Tawy. I'm getting this with my Boots points. The LE Spring palette, another Boots Points purchase me thinks.

I know I don't need all three, although that would be nice, I'm happy to settle for one of them.I've been eyeing this up for nearly a year, one day I'll cave in and buy it.
All Time Favorite Mascara! I'ved used many different mascaras but I always end up coming back to this one.
I have used up six products for my Project Pan, but that was mostly lucky timing and Spring cleaning. Let's see what the rest of the month holds.

Holiday Over!

This last week I’ve been on holiday from work. It’s the last holiday I’ll get until the next tax year, the only additional time off I’ll get is for a trip to the GP for my BP.
I put in for a repeat prescription for my pill and when I get there they only give me a month’s supply and tell me I’m over due for a yearly blood pressure check. Apparently that’s a possible side effect from my brand of contraceptive, I also want to question the GP about DVT or Deep Vein Thrombosis. I don’t know much about it and I’m scared to research it. But what I do know is it cause blood clots in your legs, usually people on long haul flights suffer from it. sometimes these blood clots get loose in the body and travel and they sometimes burst. And if this happens in your brain or you heart, you will die. Did I mention that certain brand of contraceptive pill can make you four times more susceptible to DVT. I know if I do any research myself I’ll end up in some paranoid coma, so I’m going to talk the doctor about it and hopefully I’m not at risk.
On to less depressing things.
I had quite a relaxing holiday, I lazed around and did very little. I had planned to do a lot, but to be honest I couldn’t be arsed. I had planned to film a lot for Youtube, and do a bunch of work for the blog, all of which I could get done in my evenings if I were more organised. So I figured if I get all the lazy vibes out of my system I will be more productive.
But to get the ball rolling, what do you what to see?

NOTD: Purple Ash by Models Own

At first I thought the colour was really unusual. Maybe it was the name, maybe it was the glare of fluorescent lights. Either way I had that ‘I must have it feeling and next thing I knew it was in my basket.
I love the colour selection of Models Own nail polish range. It’s a great way to try the new it colour of the season without breaking the piggy open.
As with all Models Owns, it applied smoothly and took only two coats. The only downside is the smell, it reminds me of the cheap Glitzy Glam polishes I used to get when I was 12. So make sure you’re in a ventilated area.

Purple Ash by Models Own £5 from
Purple Ash is quite unusual. It turns slightly colours when the light changes. In the bottle it looks like a dirty purple, on the nails it turns into a beautiful ashy purple and in other lights it reminds me of a darker version of Rimmel’s Jungle Princess. Purple Ash is amazing if you love the griege trend but want to change it up a bit.
I’m loving this polish, I think I might have found a new favourite.
What polishes are you loving?

Pixie Jabber

It’s a week into my project and so far so good. I did make one last purchase before I started, just to tide me over.
The No7 Spring collection came in and I fell in love with the lipsticks and they had cream liners. I picked up the black cream liner and both the lipsticks. The lipsticks are called Grace and Brigette and I can only imagine they’re named after Grace Kelly and Brigette Bardot.

N07 Swatches Brigette and Grace.

Grace is one of those ‘my lips, but better’ shades, which, to be honest, I could have passed on as I have have so many shades similar. Brigette however, is an awesome colour. To start with I thought it looked like Viva Glam Gaga, but it’s paler and more milky. Kind of like a strawberry milkshake for the lips.

Quick Pink Comparison
Revlon Pink Pout, Rimmel Pink Blush, No7 Brigette and Viva Glam Gaga.

I really want to get back ups of Brigette because it is limited edition and if I use my Boots points I’m technically not cheating the project.
As for the weight management I will start that in March when the warmer weather starts to ease in. Plus I’m going to join the new gym at the Ibis hotel, it’s called Puregym and dosen’t open until March 11th. It’s going to be great, they’re open 24/7 and they have a shloo of classes. I'm really excited. Anna's going to join with me, she going to tenerife in the Summer to don a bikini and she wants to tone up with me.

Anyways enough jabber
