April Haul

So on Friday, I met up with the absolutely gorgeous Georgina from - we had been talking on Twitter a little bit, and we discovered that we literally only lived 2 streets away from each other and also worked a few shops away from each other - and as we both wanted to get to know more bloggers and makes some new friends, we thought the perfect way was a shopping day out at Meadowhall! 

We met up on the bus and started our day off at Boost for some yummy smoothies and began our day! I explained to Georgina that I had a pretty bad skincare routine (I know, i'm such a bad blogger!) but she said she would help me sort it out. (Go look at her blog, her make-up is continuously flawless!) So, our trip started at Debenhams where we visited MAC, Illamasqua and Elemis.

Drugstore FOTD

Apologies for the lack of posts this week - it's been crazy been and I've been working late evenings all week, and a hella lot of overtime so I haven't had much time to sit and write! So here is a quick FOTD that i've been wearing a lot this week, especially for work, and I really like it! I've been reaching for my drugstore and purse friendly products more and more this week and favouring those over my high end make-up - no real reason why really! The only high end products I have been using is my MAC mascara as that's the current one i'm using as I don't like to have more than one mascara on the go at once!

Sleek: Showstoppers Palette - Celebrating 50 years of Superdrug

 Sleek Showstoppers Palette Superdrug Celebrating i-Divine Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette

I had no idea that Sleek had released their 50 years of Superdrug palette yet! I knew it was due for release soon, so you can only imagine my surprise when I stumbled across it whilst having a snoop around Superdrug before work.

Superdrug has turned 50 years old - and Sleek are one of the brands that the company have team up with to release some Limited Edition products with to celebrate it's big Five Oh birthday!

MAC Eyeshadow in Cork

So, recently when I was picking up the prize for the 100 bloglovin' follower giveaway, it was only natural that something fell into my basket on my way to the checkout! ;) And that eyeshadow was Cork! I said to the lady on the MAC Counter that I wanted a new natural every day eyeshadow that I could wear to work - the other natural/brown MAC eyeshadow I have is Folie, which is a dark brown and I find that a little too dark for work. She said she was currently wearing Cork in her corner/crease and it looked lovely on and gave great definition and added something extra whilst still being natural, which is what I was looking for.

I'm sure all you of lovelies already know that MAC eyeshadows come in a black cardboard box with white writing - the standard MAC packaging which we all know and love. The shadow itself comes in a round black plastic pot with a clear lid so you can easily see the shade inside - especially handy if you are in a rush and don't have time to check the names of all your shadows to find a certain one (we've all done that, am I right?!)

Sleek Blush in Rose Gold

As you may have noticed in my recent Drugstore Haul post, that I picked up one of Sleek's best known blushers - Rose Gold. I have read so many times that it is an amazing dupe for Orgasm by Nars - and considering I don't have the funding to get the cult Nars blusher yet (key word: YET!) I thought I would pick this up, and for £4.49 it's hardly breaking the bank.

Sleek blushers come in a sturdy matte black plastic case with shiny writing - I think the packaging makes the blush look a lot more expensive that it actually is. It's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand or just to pop it in your bag if you need to touch up your make-up on the go - the sturdy case shuts with a satisfying click too so you know that it's going to be nice and safe in your bag and nothing is going to come out covered in pink powder!

Nude Nails

For a while now I have been loving nude nails! As I have said previously, they make me feel very professional - espeically when at work! I also love how they go with pretty much every outfit - and although, it is nice to match sometimes, other times I just can't be bothered. So here are my 5 nude nail polishes for ladies (and gentlemen!) on a budget.

(L-R: Maybelline Forever Strong Pro (unnamed), Avon in Naked Truth, MUA in Mud Pie, Sinful Colors in Vaction Time and Rimmel 60 seconds in Euphoria)
All polishes have been applied with one coat.

Drugstore Haul

So, Yesturday I may have been let loose in Meadowhall. I honestly didn't mean to buy anything.. it just kind of happened! Anyway, do you want to guess how much all this came to? A whopping £13!
