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.
Nail Varnish Collection
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. You can see the other posts in my nail varnish collection series by clicking here.
What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?
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.
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.

So the last post in my makeup collection series is about all my lip products. This is by far the largest part of my collection. You can see an overview of my Makeup Storage by clicking here and you can see the other parts of my collection series by clicking here. My lip products are stored in the top three compartments of my makeup storage, as shown in the photo below.
As of Summer 2104
The second post in my Makeup Collection series are what I am classing as my eye products. These are all my eyeshadows, mascaras, eyeliners and brow pencils. You can see an overview of my Makeup Storage by clicking here and you can see part one of my Makeup Collection series, my face products, by clicking here. My eye products are kept in the left hand side of the middle row of my Makeup Storage. If you would like any swatches or a review on any of the items then please do let me know and I’ll look into doing that for you.
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.
As of Summer 2014
After doing an overview of my Makeup Storage in this post here, I decided to go a little more in depth and show what I have in my collection as it has grown quite a lot this year, I’ve become a bit of a makeup addict recently. It isn’t going to be really in depth, but I am going to tell you what everything is. If you would like any swatches or a review on any of the items then please do let me know and I’ll look into doing that for you. I’m going to split my Makeup Collection into a series of three posts, one for lip products, one for eye products and one for face products. This is going to be the post for what I am calling face products and is basically all of my primers, foundations, tinted moisturisers, bronzers, powders, concealers and blushes. These occupy the big bottom section of the box I store my makeup up, pictured below.
Nails of the Month
The first colour I wore this month was Collection 2000 Hot Looks’ Blue Hawaii. I needed something quick drying and this was already out from when I used it last month.
The Lip Product Addict Tag
The lovely Jacquelyn from thelittlescottishcorner tagged me to do the Lip Product Addict tag and it’s really good timing because recently my sister and I have been lip product crazy and have bought loads when we’ve been out shopping together. I’ve always been something of a lip balm addict (see my lip balm collection post here) but recently I’ve been all about lip colours as well.
So this is my current lip product collection minus one or two lip balms which I couldn’t be bothered retrieving from whichever bag or coat pocket they were in when I took the photo. But now, on to the tag!
