Last Tuesday Anthony and I had a day off together so we went to sunny Blackpool, unfortunately for us it wasn’t sunny at all and as soon as we arrived the heavens opened. Whilst in Blackpool you have to go to the top of the Blackpool tower to we went in bought our tickets then were told the tower had been closed for maintenance so instead of getting out money back we decided to just go back another day as we only live an hour or so away from Blackpool. After we got sick of trudging round the shops (where I very nearly bought the naked 1 palette) we went to Madame Tussauds.

Similarly the weather for the rest of the week was probably just as bad so instead of going for a walk as planned we went for a drive as far into the lakes as possible before stopping off for tea and cake.

Have you done anything exiting this week?

SEVENTEEN STAY POUT LIPSTICK

Last week whilst doing the usual boots browse I stumbled across the new stay pout lipsticks from seventeen. After swatching every single shade (most of them were bright) and having a ridiculously messy hand I decided i had to take these two shades home with me. The lipstick on the right is called ‘date night’ which is a very true red, after sorting through my makeup stash the other day i realised every single red lipstick I had (and there’s a lot) either leant towards the blue-tone red or the orange-tone red so date night was perfect. The lipstick on the left is called ‘rule breaker’ this is a deep plum colour. I love the packaging for these lipsticks, its sleek and sturdy as it clicks when the lipsticks shut.

I haven’t properly wore these lipsticks yet so couldn’t tell you how they perform, however i am planning on truly testing them and wearing them on a night out sometime soon, I’ll let you know how it goes. These lipsticks are currently on a 2 for £6 offer from boots, so get yourself there quick!!

Have you tried these lipsticks? What did you think of them?

REVIEW: NAKED 3 PALETTE

I kindly received this beautiful thing for Christmas and have been umming and arring whether to do a in depth blog post about it ever since but why not? Even though I’ve read 10,0000 blog posts about it already and i own it myself i still get a little bit exited every time i see it and can’t resist opening the post!

This is the third of the Naked palette’s from Urban decay (as you ALL already know) and costs £37, i know my boyfriend purchased mine from Debenhams (he’s a very very good egg). I also own the Naked 2 palette and Naked basics which i use everyday but missed out on the first Naked palette, i am now debating getting it but still unsure whether it’s worth it if i own both others, let me know your opinions on that please!

The Naked 3 palette is different to all others because of its focus on pinky, rose-gold shades. It’s just beautiful. Pink eyeshadows are something that i thought would never work but here Urban Decay have made them extremely wearable. UD are famous for creating such highly pigmented and blendable eyeshadows and surprise surprise they’ve lived up the that reputation once again, this palette is truly beautiful.

THE MONDAY POST

20140117-153735.jpg

When coming to write a blog post about what has happened this week I felt like this image of little Rosie was the best way to describe it! I have had the most unproductive week of my life the weather has been horrendous, I’ve been ill for a few days and my 2 weeks off are over so back to work I go.

We headed off a few days a go up the Lake District to take my dog, Rosie for a walk, as we went further and further into the lakes the weather got worse and worse so when we arrived at our destination we thought against the idea of a walk and went to a local cafe. Which might I add is the nicest place to go for lunch, a cake or a hot chocolate whilst in the lakes, it’s called Chesters by the river, it really is amazing and it has the best gift shop there.

However there was one positive thing that came out of this week, me and my boyfriend booked a holiday to Florida. I’ve never been to Florida before but it’s definitely one of those places everyone has to go to in their lifetime. We have spent the rest of the week researching theme parks and all the things you have to do whilst in Florida. If any of you have ever been to Florida before we would be so grateful if you could let us know where is worth going!!

Have you done anything exiting this week?
