Charlotte Tilbury Love

Charlotte Tilbury Love

So today's post is pretty much my declaration of love for Charlotte Tilbury products, including the two newbies I purchased recently. Yes the brand can be pricey and at times a touch overrated, but let's face it Charlotte Tilbury herself is a beauty legend with years of experience in the beauty & makeup industry, so she really knows what she's doing when releasing her products. To top that she constantly creates the most beautiful packaging that truly makes each and every single product stand out. My CT collection certainly isn't massive, I've only got a small range from her makeup line and  a skincare product that sadly didn't work for my skin (you can read about my experience with the Magic Cream here)... so it's not all sweet roses. However I still think the brand deserves a worthy mention on my blog and some well earned appreciation.

ZOEVA Matte Eyeshadow Palette

If you're an avid reader of my blog, you will have seen me rave about ZOEVA as a brand time and time again. If you somehow live under a rock (in the nicest way possible) and don't know the brand, let me just quickly tell you a little bit about them before I introduce you to one of their newest makeup releases. ZOEVA is a German based brand that focus on being innovative and modern, not to mention affordable too. They are now internationally recognised for their beautiful makeup brushes and becoming more popular for their makeup range too. For me their eyeshadow palettes in particular are some of the best I have tried, especially when you take into consideration the price. Through the brand's high quality products, you are also supporting women suffering from domestic abuse or the consequences of cancer, which is quite amazing to know. Once you get your hands on Zoeva, you can really appreciate how much detailing, care and passion goes into their products. Hence why I was so impressed with the Zoeva Matte Palette from the very first moment I got my hands on it.

All Matte Everything

All Matte Everything ft Zoeva, Charlotte Tilbury & The Body Shop

It's been a while since I've created a makeup look for the blog... to be honest even my day to day makeup is kept to a bare minimum of concealer and maybe some mascara if I have the time. However after treating myself to a couple of new makeup bits, I thought I would put together this all matte look. The only thing that shimmers in this look is a favourite highlighter of mine, theBalm Mary Lou Manizer, because I just can't forgo this step (all about that glow). With newbies from some fantastic brands such as The Body Shop, Zoeva & Charlotte Tilbury, there's a lot to get through so I better get started.

A Relaxing Valentines Evening

A Relaxing Valentines Evening

Happy Valentine's Day all you lovely people! Whether you celebrate the day, even if you're coupled up or not, I hope you have a fabulous day. The most important thing about a Hallmark holiday like this is to remember to show love and kindness to the people that matter the most in your life. Of course we should be doing that everyday anyway, but since today is Valentine's you can make a bit more effort to go the extra step towards putting a smile on someone's face. Oh and of course don't forget to love yourself... that's most the most important thing you can do. To help you do just that, I've put together a post on how to give yourself some extra TLC and take some time off to relax (it's just one of those things that's good for the soul, trust me). 

New Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom

New Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom

First and foremost let's address the big elephant in the room... the fact that I unexpectedly took another break from blogging. I'd like to sit here and tell you it was for some particular reason, but the truth is life happened and blogging was becoming stressful instead of being an outlet of enjoyment. So I decided to take a step away from it all, have a breather and try to give myself some time to get organised so I wouldn't feel so behind with it all. I'm not sure that I managed to get as organised as I had hoped to be, but I did plan some good content and ideas for the future... plus I had some time to play around with my new camera lens and hopefully improve my photography. I've still got a long way to go in terms of photography, but the most important thing is that I really enjoy it overall and I love learning new techniques or trying out new tips. I was trying to figure out when is the best day/time of the week to post, which was delaying me coming back even more, so I just decided to just go ahead and post as I am ready. That may mean my schedule won't be regular for a while but it's better than not getting any posts out there at all am I right?! Another reason I really wanted to get this post out today is because I attended a very exciting PR event this week with Debenhams for the launch of the new Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom* fragrance. I believe this fragrance is exclusive to Debenhams for the time being and with some exciting events happening around UK stores this weekend, there was no better time to tell you all about. Plus may I remind you it's Valentine's Day next week so this would be the perfect gift to a loved one or for yourself, because you know #treatyoself.
