Essie Winter 2014/2015

I wasn't going to write about this Essie* collection because a) I don't have my own swatches to show you [awesome ones here] and b) I didn't think it was very season appropriate and so assumed interest levels would be low. However, it is an undeniably beautiful array of shades and, after posting them on Facebook and Instagram to many (albeit confused) oohs and ahhs, I decided they were worth a brief word.

REN Omega 3 Optimum Skin Oil

This time of year really calls for bringing out the big guns in the skincare department. If you want some serious nourishment for skin after being out in the biting cold, here is no better way to treat yourself than with a really good-quality oil.

Go-To Make-Up

Being able to say that I have a "go-to" make-up look is something very new to me. In the past I was something of a make-up floozy, flitting from one foundation to the next but, because I have tried to use so much stuff up this year, I think I have found comfort in having a look that I can rely on for months on end and this is probably my favourite one yet.

The Christmas Tag

Tagged by Lauren @ MakeupbyLaurenMarie

1. What is your favourite Christmas movie/s?
Of all time? Miracle on 34th Street (the 1994 version) without a doubt. 

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
Christmas morning. I know so many people open a few the night before but, for me, the magic is best saved for the 25th.

Current Eyebrow Situation

I feel like an eyebrow update is in order. I'm still having mine seen to by the lovely Noella in The Brow Artist - they are amazing and I'm really looking forward to my Christmas appointment tomorrow evening. I'm also still a huge fan of Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow. It's incredible - if I could pick one brow product for the rest of my life, this would be it. It's also a bit of a faff for early mornings. Sometimes I just prefer the ease of use of a pencil and/or gel, so that's where this duo come in.
