Lip Balm Collection – Summer 2015

Lip Balm Collection

As of Sumer 2015

So I decided it was time to do an updated Lip Balm collection since my last on was in Autumn 2013 and you can click here to see that post. I am still absolutely obsessed with lip balm but I have been making an concentrated effort to try and use some up before buying more, which has kind of worked. You will notice some of the same products from my older post, but I have used quite a few things up, which I’m proud of. So on to what I actually have now.

As Of Autumn 2014

I’m determined to get this Nail Varnish Collection series finished at some point, I started it a year ago! And knowing me, it may take another year to finish. Anyway, these are all my e.l.f nail varnishes, which are some of the oldest in my collection and also some of the most affordable.

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag? – July 2014

What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?

July 2014

So, now that I’m back from Portugal (I wish I was still there), I thought I’d do an updated What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag post. My makeup collection has expanded a lot since I done my Spring What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag post from my trip to Paris. And also since I went for two weeks, I took a fairly sizeable chunk of it with me.

For face and eye products I used this sturdy, see through bright green bag, which I got from WH Smith and is technically supposed to be a pencil case, but it worked brilliantly for makeup.

Nail Art – Disney’s Aladdin – The Genie

The Genie

Rest In Peace Robin Williams

So I, along with so many others, was shocked and saddened to hear of the death of Robin Williams earlier this week. He was an actor who I grew up with and who was in some of my favourite films throughout my childhood. So in honour of his work and to remember the fun times he gave, I came up with a simple nail art look inspired by one of my favourite character’s who he played. The Genie in Aladdin. I’m still trying to figure out if I can come up with any designs for Jumanji, Hook or Mrs Doubtfire nails. Or maybe even Flubber, which was so bad it was good, in a strange sort of way? So anyway, this is a really simple look inspired by the Genie.

Nail Art – Le Tour De France 2014

Nail Art

Le Tour De France 2014

This is such a simple look that I’m hesitant to call it nail art at all. Anyone who has read my blog for a while will know that I love combining my love of nail art with my love of sport, although I’m definitely more of a spectator than a participator. Last weekend I was lucky enough to go and see the Tour De France as it departed from Yorkshire, which is something I never, ever thought I’d get to see, it had never even crossed my mind. It was two very early starts on a week, a lot of sitting around in the sun for the actual event to be over in a couple of seconds but it was completely worth it.
