Blue Eyeshadow Makeup Look

So far I've really been enjoying 2016. At the start of the year I set myself a few personal goals and I'm slowly working through them one by one. Being a bit more experimental with certain things also featured on my list so I thought why not be a bit more adventurous with my makeup as well.  I treated myself to the Elf Eyes 100 Eyeshadow Palette and I've been having great fun playing around using the eyeshadow colours to create different looks. With it being a new season I wanted to do something a little bit brighter with my makeup and move away from my favourite smokey eye look so I decided to do a makeup look using blue eyeshadows.
I thought I would share my finished look and show you what products I've used.

Things I love about Spring

Spring has to be my favourite time of year. After months of cold weather, dark days and being wrapped up in several layers of clothing. Spring really does make me feel more optimistic and full of energy. I start to make plans and feel much more positive about actually achieving them.
So I thought I'd do something a little different to my usual fashion or beauty post and tell you why I love the Spring.

The Liebster Award

You may have already seen what the Liebster Award is. It's not an actual award but when a blogger shows a token of appreciation and nominates you, they ask you to answer their questions and then you nominate other bloggers with your own questions. I love getting to meet new bloggers and finding out more about them. I also think it's a great way to have bit of fun too!

I was honoured and excited to have been nominated by the lovely Aisling from Aisling's Apparel. I love reading her fashion and beauty blog and finding out what she's been up to. I'd like to say thank you Aisling for the nomination, it was such a lovely surprise.

Things I Do To Relax

Sometimes i get so wrapped up in everyday life that I forget what's important and what isn't. Life can become so stressful with all those everyday tasks that need to get done and I end up feeling so overwhelmed with it all and struggle to keep up.
I try not to dwell on things too much and remember that my personal well-being needs to come first. So as often as I can I spend a few minutes or a few hours having some "me time" to unwind and relax.
Here are my top 10 favourite things to help me relax.

1970s Inspired Outfit

1970s fever is hitting fashion again and will be staying well into Autumn Winter 2016. The Seventies gave us Hippie Chic, Glam Rock and even Punk and eventually becoming an iconic decade for fashion. Charlie's Angels, big lapels, flares and the "Farrah" flick, not forgetting corduroy, suede, denim and velvet were all big in the Seventies. People were inspired by what they saw in Jackie magazine or on Top of The Pops, then shopped at Camden Market to buy their own version or made it themselves at home whilst listening to vinyl on their record players. Designers are still inspired by some of the original icons of the time, Stevie Nicks, Farrah Fawcett and Bianca Jagger to name a few.
Now I love wearing vintage inspired outfits and I'll try not to wear all the pieces at once as I don't want to look like a reject from Pans People!

February Favourites

I can't believe another month has passed and we are in March already. Finally, Spring maybe just around the corner after what seems like a very long Winter!
I've been relatively good with my spending this month as I'm saving up for a few bigger purchases, but I couldn't go the whole month without having a few little treats.
They are mainly beauty purchases as well as a great pair of shoes I bought which I absolutely love!
So this is what I've loved using during February.
