For years my main passion in life was filmmaking. I started off specialising in video art at school, then turned to film production at university. I absolutely loved my degree and definitely improved my skills but I decided the film and TV industry just wasn’t for me and put a pause on the whole filmmaking aspect of my life. Since I’ve graduated I’ve turned a bit more to photography with my blog but honestly, photography just isn’t something I’m half as passionate about. I enjoy it and obviously I love my blog but I just don’t feel like it pushes me creatively as much as it used to. So I’ve decided to give filmmaking a second chance.
A week or so ago on Instagram Stories I decided it was finally time to sort out my lipstick/gloss/balm collection. It was a task I had put off for months because it had just got into such a state, and I find that when my lipsticks aren’t stored neatly I’ll just reach for the same ones every day. So with half an hour to spare, I finally sorted it all out and I can report that it’s still in good nick. Part of my lipstick sorting involves deciding what lipsticks should go out on display, as I have a display unit and then some boxes in my makeup drawers. The ones on display are my high end lipsticks which you can read here, and then around five or six lipsticks which I’m either loving at the moment and want easy access to, want to use more of or are perfect for the season. So I swapped it all around and today I thought I’d show you what’s new in there.
The first time I tried NYX was when my sister when to the States and came back with a lipgloss and blush, it was pretty much love at first sight. Since then I’ve tried a fair few of their products and they’ve never let me down, literally never tried a bad thing from NYX. As a brand, they’ve really bridged the gap between professional and affordable and now they’ve become even easier to get hold of as they now sell in Debenhams. Debenhams very kindly sent me some of NYX’s best sellers to celebrate their launch, so let’s see how I got on with them all.
It has been a little while since I’ve done a makeup haul, as contrary to everyone’s belief, I don’t actually buy *that* much makeup. However, the urge grew and I just knew I had to go into town to pick up some things as my wish list was growing, with a mixture of blogger recommendations and just things I generally wanted myself. I only did this haul the other day so it’s still all very much first impressions, but let’s take a look at what I bought!
Blog reading is one of my favourite past times, I don’t get it when people make out it’s a massive chore as for me it’s the ultimate relaxation. I like watching YouTube but for me I’ll always be a blogger and reading blogs will always be the one. Today, I’m back with the third edition of my Blog Posts Which Caught My Eye series – catch up on posts one andtwo – to share some of the blog posts I’ve absolutely loved recently. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did and as always let me know your favourite bloggers and blog posts as I’m always up for more reading!
