Project 365/14 Karma

"Karma is a wonderful thing. Have patience and watch it unfold"..... I love this quote, so, so true.

Project 365/13 Stratford upon Avon

Me outside William Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford upon Avon. Me and my bf went there today, the weather was lovely so we had a walk by the river, visited the old town, wandered around the shops and had a lovely lunch. I love the buildings there, lots of history and so pretty.

Project 365/9 Liz Earle Daily Eye Repair

I love eye care products and over the years i've tried many different eye creams/gels from higher to lower end brands. A few months back i got the Liz Earle Daily Eye Repair, i bought the 10ml tube which is priced at £13.25, although it also comes in a 5ml tube for £6.90.

The triple action cream claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines, brighten dark under-eye shadows whilst the SPF10 mineral sunscreen helps protect the delicate area from UV light. After consistently using the product for a few months i can definitely see an improvement with the dark shadows underneath my eyes. After dabbing the cream on my eye area which instantly feels very cool and refreshing, i notice that my shadows disappear within 20 minutes or so, a must have for a night owl as myself.

I haven't got any fine lines so i can't comment about that as yet but i'm all for protect and prevention, therefore the SPF10 is a huge plus point for me. I can honestly say that it's the best eye care product i've used as yet and will continue to do so.

You can buy the product here or from a Liz Earle counter/store.

Project 365/8 Baking Cakes

Me and my little sister made some carrot cakes this afternoon. I didn't put much icing on as i find too much of it quite sickly. Don't be deceived by their appearance, they tasted yummy!!

Project 365/7 Lush Mask Of Magnaminty

I love a good face mask and for years now Lush's Mask of Magnaminty as been top of my list. The product smells deliciously minty and fresh, it's extremely gritty but never too harsh upon my skin. After using this my skin feels tighter, more refreshed, bright and very clean. I buy the small tub of 125g which is £4.75. I have combination skin and this sorts it out a treat.

Project 365/6 Michael Kors

My new Michael Kors Mother-of-Pearl and Crystal Dot Gold Watch arrived this morning and i absolutely love it! I've been wanting one for ages so for the price i paid for it, it would have been extremely rude to refuse ;). I have quite skinny wrists so had to have a few links taken out but it now fits perfectly.

Project 365/5 MAC Semi Precious Mineralize Skinfinish

Whilst at the MAC counter in Selfridges on Saturday i bought the Pearl Semi Precious Mineralize Skinfinish for £20.50.

The product feels so luxurious upon the skin and really suits my fair complexion. I use the lighter outer area for highlights and the inner more colourful area as a blush. It does give quite a lot of shimmer, which you can see in my above photo, although if blended well i find it gives a more dewy effect.

It's definitely one of my new favourite MAC products.

Project 365/2 MAC 150 Powder Brush

I went shopping yesterday and picked up a few things so expect a lot of haul type project posts in the next few days or so.

I needed a new Powder brush as i had lost my previous MAC one (please don't tell me i'm the only one that does this) and my current No7 one just wasn't cutting it, the bristles became so dry and wiry after a while that it was actually physically hurting my face, ouch. I opted for the 150 MAC large powder brush, it was quite expensive at £32.50 but the quality is amazing and i can really tell the difference to that of a drugstore brush.

I mainly use the brush for the applicaton of loose/pressed powder and it applies beautifully, the bristles are so, so fluffy and soft, definitely worth the £32.50 price tag.
