My week in Instagrams #3

All-nighter. I seem to be doing a lot of these lately.

Chucked all the junk away. Need to go food shopping.

The Boy is Liverpool obsessed!

Blog sale goodies. LOVE bareMinerals and the Korres butter smells edible!

My free Swarovski pencils, blogged about here.

Finally remembered to take my bags for life shopping with me.

Went a bit swatch-crazy in Boots. Really want a lip butter in Sugar Plum. (Biggest swatch)

Apple & Peach Ribena. SO good.

Dinner Party. Starters.

Dessert, Tiramisu and strawberries.

Very belated birthday cake for my best friend. Carrot cake.

Coconut sweets from Nigeria. Addicted.

Stayed in a hotel the night before a family wedding.

Checking out. Hotel we were in had a tree house suite. Have to stay here next time.

Ferry home after the wedding.

What did you get up to this week??

Blog Hop: What’s in my makeup bag?

I’ve created a mood board of the things in my makeup bag, as unfortunately but makeup bag looks like this:

It’s one of those things I always mean to clear up and never do!

My makeup bag

My current faves:
(Clockwise from top left)

Nivea Super Moisturising Lipstick in Big Berry – Really love the sheer colour, and the fact that the longer it’s on the darker it gets. 

Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait – Only just purchased but it’s totally amazing. Love the slight shimmer to it. Mini review here.

Bare Minerals Foundation in Deepest Deep – Have used this foundation for about two years now and I swear by it. Great coverage and really light on my skin. Best thing? No breakouts!

Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon – Got this in a Glossy Box a few months ago. It’s a little sticky, but love the colour and scent.

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara – Another beauty box item. Don’t know how I survived so long without it!

Youngblood Mineral Primer – Again from a beauty box. I usually use Body Shop Matte it, but if I’ve got a 12-14hr shift at work then this primer keeps me looking fresh all day. Will definitely purchase full size.

Maybelline Mineral Power in Cocoa – I mainly use it as a concealer for my dark circles and acne scars. However, if I’m just popping out quickly I apply it on its own to freshen up my skin.

Essential Care Eye Pencil – Yup, from a beauty box. Some eye pencils tend to give me an eye twitch (Boo!) so I liked the sound of this natural, mineral pencil. Lasts for ages.

Avon In A Blink Eye Pencil & Shadow Duo in Silver – I really only use the shadow as the pencil is too light for me. The shadow has a nice smudge brush that I use to highlight my brow bone.

So that’s pretty much my daily makeup routine.

What’s in your makeup bag??
