Hi dolls. I feel like I’m on a roll today with two whole blog posts for you! I thought this would be a great post to have a little CHIT CHAT with you. Firstly, I got a new car *yipee* my old one was seriously dying on me but now I have a fancy new one which I’m totally loving. Team Audi all the way. Also, recently I got asked to be a part of Handpicked Media! Which I was super chuffed about, to be a part of this community with lots of well known blogs here in the UK. Last but not least, I have got a new job close to home! I am very, very sad to be leaving my team but it’s time to start a new challenge in life - I’m really looking forward to it. Has anything new happened in your lives?
Right, now onto the FOTD. On Friday night it was my work Christmas party & I thought I’d share my face with your pretty faces as well as some products I’m currently loving. I wore a blue dress from Bershka. Their products are very good quality & don’t break the bank. I wore THIS dress.

Flawless Cream Foundation RRP: £12.50
These are the two products I’ve been using a lot recently. I’ve also worn these on the pictures above. Recently I’ve been trying out more & more drug store or pharmacy brands & I’ve been pleasantly surprised
Flawless Cream Foundation - applys like a DREAM. I’d say it’s medium coverage, which is perfect for me as I don’t like to feel caked on. I love the matte look yet glow it has on my skin. For the days I feel like I want that extra coverage, I’ve been going straight for this. I’m also loving that it’s got SPF 15 in it. Dolls, I can’t stress how important SPF is & especially on your face… I’m obsessed with not wanting wrinkles & products with SPF are a must along with keeping moisturised. You can get this from Superdrug or off of their website HERE.
RRP: £24.50 from Boots, Debenhams or Benefit’s website HERE.
Watt’s Up! - If you’ve been keeping up with me &/or my blog you’ll know that I’ve been wearing highlighters a lot recently! I was so happy to get my hands on this. One, because I love Benefit products & two because yep… I love highlighters I already use high beam which was one of my favourites during last summer. However this has more of a gold tone to it. It’s INCREDIBLY smooth & glides onto my skin effortlessly. The sponge on the other end is amazing, I don’t know why brands hadn’t thought of this earlier. I find it helps keep the product on there (by blending the edges away) rather than rubbing it into your skin/foundation. Also, a little goes a long way with this so for the price, I think it’s well worth it - that is if you’re after a good quality highlighter. By the way, how cute is the packaging?!
Here are some quick swatches of what they look like. I find I go for ‘THICKER‘ products during the winter. Is anyone else like that, or is it just me?
The boy also got me this GORGEOUS clutch bag from ASOS last week - I don’t know how he knew but I’ve been wanting to get this for ages now & I finally have it Thank you so, SO much
What have you all been up to? What products have you been loving this winter? I am going to do a ‘what I use on my skin’ & ‘what’s in my bag’ type of posts as I’ve been asked to do them quite a lot recently so watch out for them along with my recent haul I’ve totally missed blogging & I think I’ve got my blogging mojo back
