InstaJanuary

Hello lovelies!

Hasn't this month gone crazy fast? January is usually such a crappy month for me, but this year, it's been pretty fun. I've really put a whole lot more effort into my blog, while keeping it quite chill, and I've taken up a new hobby - running. 


The last time I did one of these Instagram round up posts was in November, because during December I was completing the 100 happy days challenge. I didn't want to bombard you with even more photos. So, if you want to rewind to November click here

Hopefully you can see some improvement in the quality of my photos, I've tried to just pay a bit more attention to lighting etc, it's the small things ya know, just a little at a time. 

Enjoy!

Review: Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner

Hello lovelies!

I've had a quiet few days blog wise as I'm still a little sad I've had to pause my Couch to 5k challenge due to injury. However, I'm resting as much as I can so hopefully I'll be able to get back into the swing of things asap. 

Today I'd thought I'd share with you my favourite eyeliner of the moment. It's replaced my sacred 17 liner, which I really didn't expect, but this really is a eyeliner wonder, plus it's affordable! (£5.99)


Okay, so fun fact for you, the first kind of eyeliner I ever used properly were felt liners just like this one. I switched between Soap & Glory and No7. Both were pretty good for a beginner, especially for learning how to actually line your eyes, however neither were as precise as this, and I found them to dry out pretty quickly. This however is another story. 

For the last year I have been using Boot's Seventeen High Drama Liquid Eyeliner, and thought I had found the one and only. I love it, seriously love it. It was easy to apply, stays on for an eternity, and quite precise too, however it wasn't 0.4mm precise like the beauty above. 

I bought this on a whim I must admit, I was in Superdrug with my bestie, saw it, saw how fine the tip was, and thought, why the hell not, let's try it. I hadn't seen any reviews for it, or even heard of it (that's either a sign of it being the underdog, or a sign that I live under a rock). At first, I continued to use my sacred Seventeen liner for the majority of my liner, and used this just for the flicks. Or wings. Whatever floats your boat my friend. However, things took a turn when I just found that this little beauty did the whole damn job. Perfectly. 

Not only is it, master precise, yes, they did name it appropriately, but it is perfect for giving me a symmetrical angle each time. I use the length of the nib, pointed from my nose to my outer eye (think about when you use a brush to see where your brows should end). I also found it stays on pretty well too! I have quite oily lids, so I do get a bit of transfer sometimes, but on the whole it's pretty damn good. 

I've been using this since mid-november, and the nib is still nice and pointy, plus it hasn't dried out yet. Fabulous. This liner now comes everywhere with me, and I shall definitely be repurchasing, I thought all felt type liners were a little bit poop until I tried this. 

By the way, I haven't banished my sacred Seventeen liner to the naughty step, I still have a great love for it, one can never let go of a first love ;)

What's your favourite liner?

2015 | Things to Come



Hello lovelies!

I hope you had a wonderful new year and had a lovely time celebrating! I have just about (finally) got over my illness I had over Christmas and New Year, so I am ready to get back on my blogging game. 

To put it simply, I'm rather hyped ;)

I want to pop my new year's resolutions in this post, and also some things I would like to incorporate into my blog over the coming months. 

Okay so, resolutions are:
  • Worry less. I'm going with the whole, will this matter in a day/week/year thing. If it won't matter. Try not to fret. 
  • Cut down on fizzy drinks. I seem to have spent my whole life drinking diet coke, so I'm going to try and save the fizzy stuff for night's out or special occasions.
  • Ensure I go jogging more frequently than never. This means actually going jogging from time to time, not never, which has been my routine for like the last year...
  • Travel somewhere cool. I have no idea what my holiday situation is this year yet, so even just finding somewhere cool in England that I've never been to before sounds like fun to me. 
  • Blog more. Flick back to my blogging schedule in October, if I can blog that much all year I would be a very happy bunny. 
  • Attempt vlogging. I've literally spent the last month living and breathing danger0usperson's vlogs (did I mention I adore her) and it's inspired me to have a go at it at least. 


Okay, it kinda looks like a lot but I think they're all achievable, it's more a case of how deep shall I delve into each one as the year progresses. 

Next up, what I'm feeling blogwise:

  • Nail posts. I am so bad at painting my nails, but it has come to my attention that I have way too many nail polishes than I'd like to admit, so it would make sense that I make an effort and use them. So I'm gonna try hard as hell to make something pretty outta my nails. 
  • Music posts. I don't know about you, but from time to time I fancy a jam, so you might get monthly updates about my favourite songs of the moment. 
  • Outfit posts. I have a um selfie stick. YES I KNOW THE SHAME. However, since my camera can be a bit temperamental, and I don't have a tripod, this might actually allow me to get my outfit on camera! 
  • Makeup orientated posts. I'm getting more and more into makeup day by day, so if I find after decorating my face it actually looks half decent, expect to see it floating around the blogosphere. 
  • Couch to 5k. Remember me saying I want to go jogging? I'm using an app on my phoney woney to make it happen. As part of motivating myself I reckon that by sharing my progress week by week, I might actually stick to it, and manage to run for a bus without absolutely dying. 


What are your plans for 2015?
