February Favourites

I seem to have bought a lot of new products this month and found it ridiculously hard to pick my favourites but this is what I went for;
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Ash Brown: By God, this is the best eyebrow product I've ever used. The pencil itself is very soft without being waxy, which I love - too waxy and it seems to just slip off my face. It stays put all day and the little spoolie on the end is a nice touch.
Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Pen: This is the holy grail of eyeliners for me. I always prefer a pen style of eyeliner as this is just the application method I prefer. It gives a really intense colour pay off, the nib is thin enough to get a nice thin start to the line. It doesn't budge all day, which is such a bonus as I'm not having to wipe the black panda circles away from under my eyes.
Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow: Being a pale gal, it's hard to get a contour shade that doesn't leave me looking like I've put an orange line on my face but this Illamasqua pigment is an ashy, slightly grey toned, brown so it looks super natural.
Laura Mercier Colour-To-Go Portable Palette For Eyes, Cheeks & Lips in Smoky Violet: This little box contains everything you need for a great cool toned makeup look. This has made it in to my favourites mostly for the eyeshadows. I use the pink all over the lid with the satin purple through the crease and it creates a great daytime smoky eye. Plus, they don't crease, at all - hooray.
Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance: All hail the best moisturiser in the land. There is literally nothing more I can say about this, apart from the fact that if you have dry skin, you need to buy this as it is a little miracle worker.
Essie Nail Polish in Aruba Blue: This seems to be the nail polish that everyone compliments me on when I wear it. It's a sapphire blue shade with a frosty finish. I love dark nails and this is dark without looking like black from a distance.
LOreal Paris Studio Line TXT Volume Supersizing Spray: My mission in life will always be to make my thin hair look like a fabulous mane and this definitely gives me a helping hand. It doesn't make my hair feel dry either, which is such a bonus as I find most sprays like this do.

Sunday Post #3

This week I have finally gotten around to booking a week of work - thank God. I've got to wait it out till the end of April but it's going to be pure joy when it finally comes around. I've booked tickets so I can visit London at the start of the week, my shopping saving fund is now in full swing and I expect to see most of it disappear in Vcitoria's Secret and Topshop and I am nothing but happy about it. 
This weekend, I went in to Cardiff on a mission for some Spring like clothes. I'm not one for colour and seem to permanently live in black clothes so thought I should try and make them slightly more suitable for the (hopefully) soon to be changing weather. I picked up two crop tops, a white t-shirt style one from H&M for £3.99 and a black and white gingham print one from New Look for £9.99. In New Look I also got this big black jewelled necklace for £12.99 and thought it would look great over plain t-shirts to make them look a bit more intersting. I've been desperate for a little wool hat for ages after initially seeing one in Topshop but begrudged paying £25 for it so when I saw this one in H&M for £7.99 I snapped it up and then took many photos posing in it. My last purchase was this palm tree top from Topshop, I love this palm tree print that seems to be everywhere at the moment and the colours of this were right up my street, I also love the thick material of this top so I feel for £20 it's really reasonable.
As for today, I plan on eating too much fudge and watching the new Thor movie in my pyjamas - always an adventurous Sunday.
