Bourjois ColorBand Eyeshadow & Liner Stick

I didn't go into boots for yet another eyeshadow pencil but I managed to leave with one. All of the colours in the range were so so pretty and it was hard to leave with just one. I bought it because I swatched them all then wondered around and tried to wipe it off - it didn't budge. The pigmentation and longevity of this is amazing. I have the shade 02 brun dadaiste - it's a golden deep brown that is the perfect daytime liner for something a little lighter than kohl blacks. I don't think it's particularly dual purchase for me it's an great chunky liner but it's not very blend-able so is hard work as a shadow. Overall on the outer corners for some day time liner this shade and formula is perfect. I've been using it everyday for the last week since I've had it which is something a bit special considering I have an entire drawer full of products very similar. I would highly recommend this new launch if you're a a pencil addict like me and even more so if you're after products to take you through the whole day.

Life Favorites - 08.02.2015

January seems to have flown by and I'm not really sure what happened in it. But there are a few things that I adored and that stick out the most that I really wanted to share. Deep Sleep pillow spray has been in my life for over a year and is a staple in my night time routine. I picked up this huge 250ml bottle in a feel unique sale and I love having it on my dresser it's going to last for ever. I bought myself the Sali Hughes Pretty Honest book after Christmas - I'm half way through and loving it. Sali writes in such a honest and knowledgeable way I'm loving reading it and have already learnt so much.

Pretty Little Liars hit Netflix last month and I made my way through it in a matter of weeks. Having only one episode a week is hard but I'm kind of glad as it took over my life for a little while. Eating more fruit and veg was one of my 2015 plans so the Kenwood Smoothie 2 go maker has been my go to breakfast. It's not the best on the market I'm sure but for the £20 price tag you get a mean morning smoothie from it. I like frozen pineapple, spinach, chia seeds, lemon juice, orange juice & some carrot. I read that 80:20 veg:fruit to a morning smoothie is the key so I'm trying to up my veg as much as possible whilst keeping it tasty.

Santa bought me Amor Amor this Christmas - it was my favourite perfume from about 15 - 18 years old. I adore it and I love having it back in my life. I'm also loving my jade facial roller - I've been using it every single morning and night and although my better skin can't solely be contributed to this I feel like it's definitely playing its part. I also had to include the Encona Hot Pepper Sauce - I've gone through 2 bottles of this stuff in a month. I can't get enough of it - it's fresh and super hot and although it probably doesn't in reality I've been putting it on everything.

Finally I had to include the American Office as I finished it today and I'm awfully sad that I have no episodes to watch (I might have cried constantly through the last two). Stanley's my favourite character probably ever out of everything - I miss him already.

ps I've worked out where January went - I just watched Netflix.
