Hands up who loves watching the Victoria’s Secret Catwalk Show every year? Such a guilty pleasure! It personally heralds the beginning of the festive season for me as it airs the first week of December and usually sees me wrapped up in cosy PJs venting my frustration at those inhuman body goals with a large bar of chocolate and tea. But it isn’t all confidence knocking, for there is one aspect that really inspires me every year. The amazingly fresh, flirty and glowing makeup! For essentially, I am all about the glow. And luckily, this is one thing we can all appropriate easily, and without hours at the gym.. Although a better diet would probably help things along…but it’s Christmas, and all that. Keep reading to see my take on the VS makeup for this year.
I’ve done it again. I’ve went and spent a small fortune on myself when I should really be saving and planning ahead for Christmas! Damn instant gratification and online shopping. Unfortunately this month’s favourites are predominantly on the expensive side of the spectrum, but if any of them make your want-list don’t forget to drop hints for Santa. I’m actually very pleased with these purchases since I’ve been trying to really improve my skincare regime and I think I have the beginnings of a very good routine in place. Anyone else been overly indulgent in this area or have some suggestions?
It’s very rare that I will say this so brashly but – GO AND GET THIS PRODUCT. Just kidding. Kind of. So the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil has been marketed as more of an oil than a lipgloss formula, a fairly unique and novel concept which appealed to me a lot considering my pout has been hopelessly dry since Winter began. It retails for £18 and comes in two shades, Honey and Raspberry, however both are ultimately clear on the lips so it is the scents you are choosing between. I picked Honey as it has a beautiful nectar-sweet aroma and looks like liquid gold…
I thought I would give AMPM Restaurant from Belfast a quick mention. I visited recently with a friend for afternoon tea as a girly treat and we were absolutely delighted with it! Seriously, I’ve lived in Belfast for three years, how have I never been to this spot before?
