Collective Beauty Haul

For the whole of January, I went on a no buy. Meaning no purchasing of makeup and skincare products - it was hard but I did it. Since then I've not been as good. I have an obsession with buying clothes - ASOS is my best friend and have been buying random bits of makeup from here and there. I plan to start more of a low buy from next month, and only buy the essentials when I run out. My aim is to save as much as I can this year, and buying all the new launches, just because everyone else has, needs to stop. I get myself tangled in a web of no money and its just not worth it. 
This post, is a haul of some things I have 'treated' myself to recently, all essentials of course!

#PixiLoves Eyeshadow Palettes Swatches and Review

Pixi pretty much knock it out of the park when it comes to skincare. More recently, they've started to launch makeup too. I still pinch myself when their PR packages come through the post, its such a dream! Their newest eyeshadow palettes came not that long ago and I couldn't wait to get playing around. I'm not the best at eyeshadow, never have been. When I wear any eye look, its simple and basic - so apologies that its a little boring.

7 reasons why I LOVE Spring

Birds singing, lighter mornings, the sight of lambs and baby chicks, Spring flowers and of course a new Spring wardrobe. There’s so much that Spring has to offer. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE the summer time, with those seemingly endless days of glorious sunshine, and I enjoy everything that Autumn has to offer, from the colours and bonfires and the beautiful sights and smells, and Winter of course means the Festive season is upon us!
But Spring also has so much to offer, from gorgeous flowers to the latest celebrity gatherings like Met Gala, and to show just what you have to look forward to, I’ve rounded up 7 reasons why I LOVE Spring!

Everyday Work Makeup

During the week, I typically apply my makeup at about 6.30 and then don't remove until about 7pm. Just a little over 12 hours, and over time I have found hardcore products that stay put on my face and keep me looking flawless. There are a few things that get swapped out for other products from time to time but for the most of it, this is my staple go to look. I have oily skin, so my main goal is to have a matte face that doesn't shine throughout the day.
