No matter how much you love or hate Kim Kardashian... you have to admit, that she is gorgeous and her makeup is absolutely flawless. She seems to be choosing less dramatic eye makeup at the moment, with less liner etc, but I have always loved her cat eye and nude lip combo and that's the option I chose to recreate. Well... I tried my best anyway :) I shared some photos of this look on my instagram a while ago (heavily filtered), but I couldn't wait to let you know what products I used etc.

When I saw a sneak peek of Sigma's new Fall Softly Collection, I was instantly drawn to the Sigma Fall Softly Lip Bases* (£8.95 each). The three stunning shades really appealed to me and considering my current matte lip liner obsession, I felt like a kid on Christmas Day when these arrived in the post.

My most worn colour is definitely black. I probably wear it 90% of the time and I dress head to toe in black VERY often. I recently got this gorgeous Elvi Black Jumper Dress* and I thought it was perfect to wear with an all black outfit. I might look like a widow, but I like that look a lot.

I wrote about imPRESS Nails in the past and needles to say... I was not impressed. They were too big for my small(ish) nails and didn't stay on at all. I actually think I got a bad batch (they came in a beauty box) or they are simply hit and miss. I loved the fuss free application though, so I decided to give imPRESS another go.

I mention my breakout prone skin in every single skincare review/feature. I get lots of breakouts on my jawline and neck and random ones allover my face due to many factors. They are mostly hormonal and get worse before 'that time of the month', but I am not planning to take any pills to deal with the issue. I decided to try glycolic acid peels though and I am finally ready to share my thoughts with you. Sorry, if it's all a bit rambly. I was nervous about putting the before and after photos up, but I hope it gives you an idea of what to expect. Remember, nobody's perfect :)

I got my first bottle of Caudalie Divine Oil* (50ml,
£18.00, £14.39) last Christmas and I fell in love. It smells absolutely incredible and feels very luxurious.

I have always liked Love Me Beauty, but their new packaging took the box to a new level. It is very elegant and totally different to the old style cardboard box with coloured shredded paper inside. The new look features a stunning silver box with a drawstring bag and the way the subscription works is different too.
I wasn't sure what to wear with my orange and white stripy cardigan, but I went for denim look leggings, a black shirt, brown suede boots and a tan bag. What do you think?
