Motivational Monday | Spring | Week 5.

Hello lovelies,
I hope you's all had a lovely week..

I was thinking earlier - I miss Motivational Mondays!
So I thought I'll bring it back for Spring, it's also a little update.

Just a little update; Apologies for my absence as of late - I do have some really good blogposts on their way.
It just takes time, as yous know, to prepare a blogpost, but I am going to begin pre-planning my blogposts so that my blogpsts are more regular.

Alrighty, so now for Motivational Monday;

This week I have been having a Spring Clean - sorting anything and everything out.
I love Spring cleaning - It's almost like a fresh start.
A new season, a new beginning.

This week's little resolutions are;

1. Do More - I want to just do more. I want to make the most of this beautiful season. I want to go to the park, have a picnic and just get out there.

2. Prep - This is not just for blogging, but in general. I rarely plan ahead and especially for blogging, I need to! I'm going to get a board and plan what I'll be blogging about so that, at the weekend, I can take an hour and start a couple of blogposts.

Alrighty, so that was Motivational Monday.
I'll definitely be continuing this, because I've missed it.

What's your little resolutions for Spring?

I ♥ Spring | Tag

Hello, lovelies.
Apologies for my absence over the last week.
It's been 1 of those weeks - I'm back though.
Today's blogpost is going to be a tag - I did a tag a couple of weeks ago and it went down well.
So, since it's nearly Spring, I thought that I would make it Spring themed.

1. Favorite spring nail polish? It'd have to be Barry M's Nail Paint in Blue Moon - It's such a pretty blue pastel colour.

2. What is your must-have lip color this spring? MAC's satin lipstick in 'Pink Noveau' - It's a bright pink and I am loving bright lips for Spring.

Benefit's Fine One One | Review

Alright, lovelies?
Today is going to be a review, namely, Benefit's Fine One One.
I had wanted to try this for a while, but had put it off.
However, whenever I was at a Benefit counter, one of the lovely ladies from Benefit asked if I would like my make-up done.
Well, I wasn't going to refuse.
Fine One One was the blush used and so, when I seen it on, I decided to buy it.
Now, the first noticable difference is the colour selection.
The cream blush has 3 'streaks' of colour: A pink champagne, a bright pink and a coral.
This, I love. The pink champagne, I use on the cheekbones. The bright pink I use on the apples on my cheeks. And, I think, that the Coral acts as a light contour. So, you're getting 3 products in 1.
Another thing that I like about this is the formula. It blends really well, and is very buildable.
You don't need an awful lot of this product.
Next, is the packaging. I absolutely love the packaging of this. It's very compact and lightweight which is perfect for on the go. It's easy to use, as all you do is swipe over your cheek/cheekbone.
Overall, I really like this product. It's pretty pigmented and it lasts a good 6-8 hours before applying anymore. I really like this and would definately recommend this.
Have you tried this? What do you think?

Motivational Monday | Week 4

Hello, my lovelies.
It feels like forever since I've last been on here, but I blogged a mere few days ago.
I hope that you's all had a lovely weekend.
It's that time of the week again, when I give you's a little inspiraton for the week.
Last week, one of my little resolutions, was to worry less. I have been and taking away anxiety, I appreciate life so much more. Life always has little worries, but I always worried about needless things which I didn't need to - and I realised that - It has helped me to worry less.
My little resolutions are:
Family Time - I think sometimes that we can almost forget how much our family mean to us sometimes, in the rush of life. I visited my great auntie last week, who I hadn't seen in a month or 2. I forgot how much I missed not seeing her. I appreciate my family so much and I am going to try to spend more time with them.
Work - I know that it sounds silly, but I am going to try to work more this week. I love when you've done loads of work and you feel proud of yourself. I want to schedule my time better, as well.
Alrighty, so this was my Motivational Monday.
What's yours?

Everyday Make-up.

Well hello there..
Happy Friday! I hope that you's all had a good week.
Today, I'm going to be showing you's my everyday make-up routine. This look is simply for just going out - sometimes I would skip the lipstick for a less bright colour but, other than that, here it is..
Before I even think of applying make-up to my face, I cleanse. I use Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish. I love this cleanser - it gets off every little bit of make-up and the cloth provided is so exfoliating. The set shown, includes 50ml of each (Cleanser, Toner and Moisturiser) and includes the little bag and the cloth. All for £25 which, for Liz Earle is pretty good.
After cleansing, I can begin to apply my make-up. I first, use concealer. The concealer that I use is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Shade 10 - Ivory. I really like this concealer for under my eyes because the formula has an anti-fatigue and brightening effect which I love.
After concealing, I then apply Foundation. The foundation that I use switches between Rimmel's Wake Me Up Foundation or Benefit's Hello Flawless. However, for an everyday look, I use Benefit's Hello Flawless Foundation in 'Believe in Me' Ivory.
For an everyday look, I never really used Eyeshadow. I just go for the 'Cat Eye Flick'. For this, I use L'Oreal's SuperLiner in Black Lacquer. This is the best Liquid Liner that I've tried. It stays on all day and is easy to use.

After that, is Mascara. I'm trying out Maybeline's 'The Rocket Volume Express' Mascara. I quite like this mascara. I think that I was expecting a great product especially after Maybeline brought out their 'The Falsies' mascara which everyone loved. It's a good product though, just be careful because it does clump quite alot.

Then, to finish my everyday look, I use Rimmel's Moisture Renew Lipstick in Amethyst Shimmer. I love this - It does moisturise my lips and leaves a good colour.

Alrighty, so here is the finished look..

Until next time..A.
