Staying organised

So every year I normally buy a new diary from Paperchase or inserts for a organiser I have but if I'm honest this year I was lazy and didn't buy anything. Instead I decided to buy a personal size Filofax, Domino in Fawn, it included 2018's diary inserts a to do list and some coloured paper (not sure what I will use these for) but enough to get me started.

I tried meat free

So a couple months ago or so I had considered to try a meat (including fish) free diet only something short term to see if I could get on with it. I don't eat loads and loads of meat, mainly chicken and fish to be honest but I've heard of many people going meat free or doing the veganuary challenge where they have lost weight or felt better in themselves and I was intrigued. Also I recently heard that a quarter of UK dinners are actually meat or fish free. Personally I think going completely vegan would be a big jump with not doing anything like this before and there is a lot of things I think I would need to change but this was my first step.

Now I didn't do a straight two weeks like I originally planned my downfall was the weekends, the first weekend I went out with a few girls out of Ipswich and the weekend just gone I was in London. The first part was from Monday 29th January till the Saturday and then Monday 5th February till the Friday. It was a little different trying it that way but I suppose it was a way also to see if I really missed it which during the week I didn't but come the weekends when I'd be out it was kind of a different story, I'd be on my way home tipsy and hungry with nothing else really open it was some kind of fast food at the time.

Here is just a few meals I had cooked, I didn't get a picture every one I had tried but other dishes I made had included omelettes, roasted veg, a few Subway salads for lunch, jacket potatoes and home made soup.

Empties of 2018 Part 1

Some more empty products to review yay!! I love reading posts or watching YouTube videos on empty products and I love giving my opinion on what products I felt that worked and maybe not so much. A few months ago I wrote my first empties post, click here and with the amount of empty products I have (a big bag full) this will become a regular thing.

Here is a handful picked at random and most I enjoyed using, a couple not so much but it's all about trying new products to see what you like right?

On a quick note how is it Wednesday already? Officially half way through the week, we can make it!

Current make up wish list

Happy Friday!!!

I don't think I've done a post like this before of what make up products, there is so many amazing products out whether they are new or ones that have been out for some time and I haven't got round to trying. I know I definitely do not need any more make up and need to start using what I've got but there is just something about buying new make up that just gets me excited.
So here's what I've got my eye on at the moment.

Charlotte Tilbury lipstick and liner in Pillow Talk
How beautiful is this colour?! Just the perfect shade of nude. I don't own any Charlotte
Tilbury products and I think this could be my first purchase to ease my way in.

I already own the foundation and absolutely love it but I'm yet to find the right primer to use with it so why not actually purchase the primer to go with it. Also I;ve seen the results and alone it looks amazing.

Urban Decay Naked eye shadow palette in Heat
Do I need to really explain why I'm in love with this palette, the colours are just stunning you can create so many looks from day to evening with this and I know the pigments are great as I own Naked 3 which is lovely.

Now I'm very intrigued by this setting spray as I've not come across one that gives you a glow. This will most likely be a summer purchase to add a little summer glow.

I've heard wonders about this setting spray and I really do need a good one that will keep my make up at bay especially when I'm out for the whole day.

Again like the setting spray I've heard some pretty good reviews on this and I'm on the look out for a new primer but I might buy this in the travel size first to see how I get on.

Yes I'm late on the bandwagon with this purchase as at the time I had found my ideal undereye concealer but now I'd like to try something new, I'm still deciding on the shade maybe Natural or Light Ivory maybe both, who knows?

Mac Mineralize Skin Finish Soft and Gentle.
I've had my eye on this one for quite some time, when I was going to purchase it I was persuaded to purchase Doublegleam which I absolutely love its a great all rounder.  

Fenty Beauty Blotting Papers
As I do have an oily T-zone, carrying blotting papers has become essential and the Fenty one comes in a cute little case with a mirror and you can use as much or as little as you want and they have the refill which is always good as well.

Can you tell I'm on the hunt for a primer? Another which looks great, not too sure which one to pick yet!

Have you tried any of the above products? What is on your make up wish list?

Three product work make up

I thought I would share with you all what make up I wear daily to work, it's simple and straight forward and the best part of it is I only use three products... Yes just three! I like to wear a little something just to try even out my skin tone mainly on my cheeks where I've had blemishes in the past (and still get them now from time to time) and give a little colour to my cheeks.

So I will do my usual morning routine which I will do another post shortly in a bit more details on what products I use at the moment. Before I used to do my make up once I got to work but now I've managed to be able to get ready and do it all before I leave (most mornings).

Hello 2018

How are we mid way through January already? It does not seem that long ago that it was Christmas and everyone was celebrating New Years? I hope everyone had a lovely time spending it with their loved ones and stuffing ya face till you can't move anymore! That's what it's all about really oh and presents, who doesn't love a presents?! Especially when you wasn't expecting it or it's something you really wanted. I had spent the days that I could with my family but unfortunately throughout the festive period I was not feeling 100% so I spent a majority of the time in bed with my teddy hot water bottle watching Netflix. 

Now all the festivities are over it's back to reality, 2018 here we come! Probably like a lot of people I'm not setting no resolutions because if you want things to change that much you will do it without it being a new year new start or fresh start crap because come on who really sticks at their new years resolutions? This year for me I want to do more whether that's jumping on a plane to go somewhere or find new places to explore in the UK either do it alone and with the people I love. Getting back into a healthier lifestyle is key for me as well, small changes at a time will make a difference. Some may say that I have set resolutions but these are changes I've been trying to make these for past couple months. Overall I want to look back and say this year was a good year with a big smile on my face!

My recent beauty buys

It's been a while since I done one of these kind of posts, unfortunately I just haven't been buying loads of beauty products to do a haul like post. Over the last month or so I've bought a few things, some which were repurchases and some new. I kind of forgot how much I love shopping for anything beauty related but not how much money I would spend!

See what new products I've bough and what products I've repurchased....
