Clinique eyeliner

I have watched hundreds of beauty videos on YouTube and I have always heard positive reviews about gel eyeliner. Until recently, I hadn't actually used gel eyeliner as I've always been a fan of liquid.....

No longer! I bought Clinique cream eyeliner, which has been recommended by YouTube beauty gurus as the best gel eyeliner, the other day and I love it. The thicker texture of the eyeliner makes it really easy to apply and it lasts all day without smudging or disappearing (which I find can be a problem on the winged/flicked part).

I was slightly apprehensive about trying it because I wasn't sure how easy the brush would be to use. The Clinique eyeliner came with a little brush and I am pleased to report that it is very easy to use. I probably will buy a slightly more angled brush to try, but I do find it much easier to use than the liquid eyeliner brushes!

I am also shocked by the little amount of liner I have used even though I have used it everyday and also used it multiple times on some days to try out different styles! This is a product which will last.

This is a product I would definitely recommend, especially the Clinique one which does also seem to appear in beauty videos as well!

Three of my favourite things

These are my three favourite purchases so far this year!

A gorgeous bag from Topshop. I adore the colour of this bag; it's what caught my eye.

Clinique exfoliator for oily skin. This stuff leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and super clean. It has a gorgeous, slightly minty, smell.

My bargain Forever 21 brackets which were in sale for only £1.50 each! I wanted them and the price tag only made me sure I was going to buy them.

Printed Blouse

Today I'm Wearing.....

I am finally feeling well again after my operation and I decided to wear a printed blouse with a silky skater skirt out for dinner! Printed blouses seem to be everywhere are the moment, and I also love them with leather skirts!

Winter Warm

I haven't got an outfit of the day from the last few days as I have been really unwell. I do however, had a winter outfit from a couple of weeks ago which I didn't end up posting.

Winter Sparkle

Today I'm Wearing

There is nothing better than adding a bit of sparkle to an outfit when it's dark and cold outside. I wore this beautiful sparkle top (similar here and here) with a pair of trousers from River Island and a pair of tan boots.

Liebster Award

Liebster Award

Today's post is dedicated to the Liebster award: a "sweet" award as it means in German. I'm so happy to be nominated by CatherineBelle! Take a look at her blog here:

The Liebster award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

All you have to do is:

Say 11 things about yourself

Answer the 11 questions the nominating blogger asked you

Ask 11 questions to the bloggers you will nominate

Nominate 11 new bloggers

Make sure you notify the bloggers you nominate

So here are 11 things about myself:

1) I am an only child

2) My favourite colour is yellow. It always makes me smile. I wouldn't however, often choose to wear it. 
3) I love crisps; they are my weakness 
4) I am allergic to kiwi fruit
5) One of my favourite things to do is go to the cinema (sometimes just for the sweets!)
6) I am engaged
7) My favourite movie is The Notebook
8) I cry at most films
9) I find sale shopping very challenging! It is far too messy and busy. 
10) My favourite type of food is Italian.
11) Independent clothing boutiques are some of my favourite shops. I really like finding items that aren't on the high street.  

Questions from CatherineBelle

1) Where would you travel if you could go anywhere right now?
I would go to the Carribean. I love the sun, especially in January in England when it is dark, cold and wet.

2) What is your favorite quote?
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians

3) What is your dream job?
My dream job......I would love to own an online clothing boutique!

4) Who is your favorite actor?
My favourite actress is Rachel McAdams. She starred in The Notebook, my favourite ever film, and I have enjoyed all of the films she has acted in.

I would trade places with Olivia Palermo - can you imagine the clothes?!

7) What is your favorite song?
My favourite song is Everything by Michael Buble. 

8) Do you have any pets?

9) What is your favorite fashion item from your closet?
My favourite fashion item would have to be something classic.... a simple LBD which has the ability to be updated and accessorized each season. As there are not many women out there who could purchase a new dress for every occasion, a LBD which can be 'fashionized' is the perfect solution!

10) What beauty product can you not live without?
La Roche Posay face wash! I love the feeling of a clean face. If I could have a second it would definitely be mascara. I never leave the house without it.
