FOTD - Parfait Amour

Hey hey hey! I hope everyone is having a good week...not long till the weekend - woo!
This is quite a colourful eye that I did for last Saturday night out.....just home from holidays and I had a wee bit of a tan to make use of! I was dying to use the new eyeshadows I'd got in duty free. I've also just got a new camera which I'm trying to figure out and the flash has bleached the colours out a little so I will try and fix that for future.
YSL Perfect Touch Foundation
YSL Tinted Veil tan Booster (mixed with foundation to darken)
MAC MSF in Medium Deep
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Tawny

MAC Blacktrack Fluidline (as base)
MAC e/s Parfait Amour
MAC e/s Lucky Green
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
False Lashes (cheapie ones)

Using the eyeshadows over a black base gave a different depth to the colour and gave them a flip effect, catching the light really nicely (can't see it with my camera on these piccies unfortunately!)

I hope you like...

How Time Flies...

Hi all! I hope everyone is keeping well!

I cannot believe its been 3 weeks since I last updated here. So much has been happening, lots has changed so these last few weeks have totally flown by!

I had my two consecutive Hen parties, then I got tonsillitis (as you do in the summer!), then out of the blue The Husband got a new job. They wanted to him to start ASAP but we wanted to squeeze in a last minute holiday since we haven't been away since our honeymoon, we literally had to get away within two days so that he could get back to start the new job. Anyway, we went to Malta and had a fabulous time even though it was super scorchio hot, had lots of nice food, many many cocktails and met lots of nice people. So trying to get back to normal and into a new routine. The Husband is working away Monday to Friday (many tears from me, sob) so I have plenty of "Me" time to keep my blog up to date and maybe even start trying to do some tutorials (if i can figure out how to do it!).

I have lots of FOTDs to post and some reviews coming up so check back soon and I hope you enjoy!

Diet Update

So I have the first of two consecutive Hen parties this weekend (my poor liver!) so I am being very good indeed. I think I may even be making peace with the low carb thing (would've killed for a potato a few days ago!).
So I made a really yummy dinner tonight which I think is my new favourite thing. Chicken (again.......) with roasted mixed peppers and red onion, all roasted with half a tin of chopped tomatoes and mixed herbs. I am trying to make sure I drink plenty of water and try and feel as best I can for my big night out on Saturday, especially as I bought a new dress today and want to feel good.
On the exercise front I may have been a wee bit too eager as it would appear after several days of badminton I seem to have shin splints which are really frickin sore! Think I need to be careful and not so over zealous.

Anyway, roll on Thursday and hopefully the scales will have some good news for me!

Wish me luck......xx
