Valentines Date Night Make up

I will be 100% honest here and say I am a complete novice when it comes to make up application. I'm good at doing my base, contour doesn't really scare me, and eyebrows are my game. But eyeshadow is a whole new ball game. I fail miserably at applying any kind of powder, it's as though my eyelids sense my fear (honestly) and as soon as a brush hits lid it instantly goes patchy and won't budge.

One thing that has slowly helped me achieve my fantasy of having okay eyelids on a day to day basis or night out is my main lady, CT. I purchased the Face palette and it has honestly instilled some sort of confidence in me with my (non-existent) eyeshadow game. The three steps are my mini "eyeshadow for Dummies" guide and I am not complaining.  I honestly get so many compliments on my eyes when wearing these three shades and even had a friend say she was "really feeling" my look when she saw me. I never thought I'd see the day.

This year I will be celebrating Valentines at my wedding venue! Très romantic. We will be in Edinburgh by the time this post goes up and that night we will be visiting the restaurant where we're having the wedding meal and will be checking out our hired room to get a look at what we're working with for decorations on the big day. I've got my little red dress already to go and hopefully my new CT Lipstick in Shanghai Nights will be the perfect match!

What are you up to tonight? N  x

Lush Valentines Haul

Give me any excuse to buy Lush Bath Bombs and I'm ya gal. I love to horde these babies and stash them in a box in the bathroom to hide them from Mathieu. In this case I actually gave him these as is also a LUSH fiend. This year saw the return of the Unicorn Horn which smells divine! Isn't it always the hardest part to pick out your favourite ones? I love that it gives your skin a silky touch after getting out of the bath and it smell like a pick and mix, bonus points!

I loved this newbie, the Whole Lotta Love Bubbleroon. How could I say no?  I'm a big advocate for cinnamon scented anything and this has a subtle scent of cinnamon and apples. Heaven. I love that this one is coated in the gold glitter giving a lovely golden shimmer and it gives of a swirl of bubbles when put in the water. Such a nice little gift for someone who's not a fan of string, heady scents!

And even though there were many more to choose from, I couldn't say no to this guy! An actual Love Boat? Sold. I am such a kid at heart and it definitely brought a smile to my face as it sat on top of the water. A little different from the others, this gives of a zesty citrus smell and makes the most photogenic bath! 

Next I want to pick up the bath oils and give more of them a try. Have you tried any of these? 

Valentines Gift Guide

I love Valentines day. I know not everyone shares this view as it's over commercialised but a day dedicated to telling your loved ones you love and care about them really makes me happy. In this world I think we could do with having more days in the year to celebrate it. I see no problem showering the people I love with goodies and treats to show them how much they mean to me, especially as most of my family and friends live a few hours away.
