Valentine's Day

Tuesday 9 February 2021


My usual plans for the *day of love* are either having a takeaway and watching a new movie or going to the cinema and out for a nice lunch or dinner (ah, those were the days). 
This year won't be much different as we're not big celebrators of this holiday, but I still like to make some effort.

The notebook in this picture is from a few years ago (it's from Paperchase).

We are approaching the most romantic time of the year soon, where we like to gift our loved ones with meaningful items. I for one, like to either make something myself or treat others with something small but useful (there's no need to spend loads of money) and I'm here to help you find the perfect gift for your loved one.

First Impression of MAC's Paint Pots

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all doing well and are having a lovely February - and not moping over V-day! I have received some MAC gift cards for my birthday last month and is not had the chance to go in store and use them until recently. I wanted to buy a lipstick but I've recently bought Ariana Grande's collection so thought I'd take a little break and go for something different. The next thing on my list was a concealer but the store was quite busy so thought instead of asking a staff member for help and waiting around for a while I'd just pick out something else - so I headed towards the paint pots. 
I chose two shades, 'Bare Study' and 'Perky'.

Of course I had to light a Yankee Candle - not only does it make my room smell amazing, but it also makes me feel cosy and wintery!
As you can see in the picture above, both paint pots are shimmery and light shades, therefore they can be used as an eyeshadow base or worn on their own to freshen up your eyelids.

L-R swatches of Perky and Bare Study. Both shades are very pigmented and I'm really annoyed with myself for not trying any of the paint pots before! I already want to grow my collection as I've been using these every day since the purchase over a week ago.

Have you tried any of their paint pots? If so, which ones do you like best? Any recommendations? 

Lots of love,
