Travelling with Makeup

I'll be flying back to the UK for a few months pretty soon and one of my persistent travel issue is storing my makeup in my case. It sounds terrible but my makeup bag is always the heaviest thing in my case and this next trip will be no exception, apart from the fact that now my makeup case is too small to carry all of my makeup AND nail polishes.

Sunday Stories 003

01. These mast few days I've been mulling over things and the decisions I need to take. Sometimes our parents expect so much of us, do we do our best to please them or do we focus on what could make us happy and what's best for our future. I'm trying to figure this out at the moment, while I thought I had a while to think it through I've recently found out that this is not the case. Tomorrow is going to be very hectic for me.
02. Have been reading through the recently released information about this year's upcoming Mac collections. I'm actually looking forward to some of them, such as the Beth Ditto collab and the Shop Shop Shop, Cook Cook Cook collection for Spring. I'm looking forward to finding out what else is in store from Mac.
03. Thinking of dying my hair jet black, it's already natural black but I would like it to be as dark as possible (from say 1b to just a 1). Though then again it's a bit of a ridiculous idea so it's likely I won't end up dying it.

Friday night's for flip cup

So some friends and I went out last night to celebrate my friends 18th. I had no idea where we were going so I threw on this Velvet skater dress from New Look and paired it with a belt from Miss Selfridge, some plain black tights and my black Docs. Sorry I don't have a clearer photo of the whole outfit. The photographs where my outfit is on show also feature my less than sober state.

For my make-up I went kind of simple as i was in a rush. For my eyes just bog standard eyeliner and neutral eyeshadows including Mac Pigment in Naked Dark and some shadows from my Urban Decay Naked (1) palette which were Naked, Sidecar and Hustle as well as Mac Rose Ole Special Reserve to highlight on the brow bone. On my cheeks I had GOSH Multi Colour Blush in 50 Pink Pie, Bourjois chocolate bronzing powder in 52 and New C-ID Cosmetics I-Glow in Coral Crush. On the lips NYX round lipstick in Miracle and Mac lipglass in Tour de Fabulous, loving that combo!

What did you guys do this weekend?

The Body Shop: Chocomania Body Butter

I got a sample of this on Sunday, I restrained myself until today to try it! This smells delicious, chocolately and nutty but not too artificial and overpowering.
The Chocomania range is limited edition and will be released in the UK and Canada in February. I think it's already available online and in-stores in America.
I'll definitely be buying this and maybe some of the other items in the range(exfoliater, shower cream, body lotion, lip butter and heart shaped soaps) come February.

Have you had a sample of the Chocomania collection? Will you be picking up any items?

Sunday Stories 001

01.I spent most of today snuggled up in bed watching my latest horrific discovery... Toddlers and Tiaras which I know is nothing new but I just started watching it! So disturbing, yet so addictive.
02.I've had this blog set up for a while but haven't gotten around to using it so I thought I'd put it into practice, though i can't promise it'll be great and regularly updated but I'm going to try! I guess I'll be better motivated once I have the layout sorted.
03.I've been back in Canada for a week now and while I miss home and my friends and family in the UK, I'm getting back into the swing of uni.
04.Since I'm a student now, I've had to cutting down on my shopping/hauls but I'm hoping to get a job asap (fingers crossed!)
05.Didn't Madonna look great at the Golden Globes!? and I'm so glad she won an award, even if her acceptance speech was a bit off!
