Things I'm Looking Forward To In 2017


There's a lot happening this year that I'm quite looking forward tooand I wanted to share them with you. 2016 was a pretty decent year in my opinion (lets just ignore the abundance of celeb deaths...) and I'm hoping that 2017 is just as amazing!


2 Years With Cameron
May 23rd will be our 2 year anniversary together and I cannot believe how fast it has gone! The poor guy has put up with me for so long already! It's been an awesome couple of years though! We've had a few trips to London under the belt now, numerous days out, another Comic Con, and soooo many family functions. Will hopefully have the day off work so we can do something together.

Going To Florida
We've been planning a holiday to Florida for nearly 3 years now, and we're now down to less than 250 days at long last! We've booked the flights and the villa, so just have the park tickets and the car hire left to sort out and then it's pretty much sorted. We're going in the Summer, so it's going to be hot as fuck and I might melt like ice cream, but it will so be worth it.

I will do a blog post on this some time over the coming months just to chat about it and share some helpful links for anyone who is also planning their holiday to Orlando!


My Blog Is 4 Years Old
October 3rd is my 4 year 'blogoversary' which I am super impressed with. I honestly thought I'd give up after a few months at this, so this something I never thought would happen! I'll have to break out a seriously awesome giveaway when the time comes...

Purging Possessions
This is probably an odd one, but something I seriously need to do. I have more makeup, shoes, bags and clothes than a department store. It's ridiculous. So this year I'm going to try and use what I've got - thus saving money for holidays and outings more than material possessions. We're three weeks into the new year, and I've yet to buy a single beauty product, so it's going well so far.

Book Writing
I've not really spoke about this a great deal. but last year I started to write the first chapter or so of a book which I've had spinning around my head for years now. I've got about 1000 or so words of it done so far, along with an outline of what I want to happen, but I just need to sit my ass down and get to writing it a bit more. I'm hoping that by the end of the year, I'll have it finished, or at least, almost done! Not sure if I'll ever try and get it published or not, but we shall see for 2018!

London
Although no official plans yet, I'm hoping to go to London a few times this year - just to be a little tourist! Even though I've been and done a dozen of the attractions a few times, Cameron hasn't been to experience it properly, so hopefully during some of our weeks off together, we can go up and have a good wander.


As always, thank you for keeping with my blog and reading it - I appreciate it a lot and hope you enjoy all the posts I have in store for this year. What things are you looking forward to for this year? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

BH Cosmetics: Foil Eyes To Go Palette | Review


We all love a freebie right?

Well, with my last BH Cosmetics purchase back in 2016, I was sent a little freebie eyeshadow palette with the order as I'd spent over $25!

I found this little 6 colour eyeshadow palette in the box and thought it was super cute and handbag sized! I loved all the colours - well maybe not so fond of the bright blue - but all of the neutral shades that were on offer.


Cannot for the life of me, find this on their website, but it is on Ebay right now for $10.39, along with a hefty shipping fee - so I'm guessing these are either new items they're trial running at the moment, or these are just on stand by as free gifts only.

Who knows.

Anyway...



I worked as much of the product onto my forearm as possible, but the pigmentation is sadly disappointing. Albeit bright and shimmery, these really need to be built up to get some coverage. Except that pesky blue!

However, once they are built up to a relatively good colour, they blend really well, and last for a really long time. I can't see me using this a great deal, but it will be going in my work handbag anyway as it has some good neutral shades that are perfect for a touch up during the day.

I've thrown the stupid little foam applicator in the bin as I hate them as much as I hate peanuts. Which is lots.

So yes, a freebie is always lovely, but this is just a bit... meh? Still, I'm sure I'll use it a bit over the year, but I have a feeling my Mum will get a much better use of of this than me!

Have you tried any of BH Cosmetics products before, and have you tried this mini palette out? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Picture Perfect #9


Even though I've had four days off work to write this, I wanted to chill a bit and not worry too much about blog post last night (as I'm writing this the day before it's live on the blog!) So, I thought I'd share with you my latest Picture Perfect! Here are some snap shots of my life and the things I've been up to, since the start of December!

It's also snowing right now for the first time in aaaaages, so I'm quite happy to be tucked in bed picking pictures to share with you!

Such a yummy candy!


New year, means a new bullet journal!! ❤️

Christmas day with the family!

Tried out some new socks!

New Year's Day party food shopping with da crew (so not hip enough to pull that off....)


New Year's Day with all the family ❤️❤️



Snow on my car last night (12/01/16!)

Hope you've all had a pretty festive period, and a good start to this month! What have you been up to lately and how often do to take pictures for memories? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
