2016 Goals

I've put together a small goals post for next year, mainly so that I can look back on this and see how I'm getting on throughout the year. I don't usually do resolutions but there's a few things I'd like to do next year, so it's nice to have them written down. I've split the list into 2 for blog goals and then life goals.

Blog Goals

Grow My Twitter, Instagram & Bloglovin followers - This is an obvious one really, but I'd like to grow my followers and circulate my blog more.

Organise My Labels - My labels on my posts have gotten really messy and I need to streamline them.

Merry Christmas!

As it’s Christmas Eve I fancied doing a round up of a few happy things. I’m off work until the 4th January now so I’m looking forward to spending time with the family and just taking time to relax after a busy few months.

1. Putting The Christmas Tree Up. We were away for the first week of December in Poland so our Christmas tree went up a little later this year, but I felt instantly more Christmassy as soon as it was up.
2. Getting Time To Read. I’ve had so much going on over the last few months that reading got put to the back of the list of things to do. I’ve finally had chance to read more lately now that everything is quietening down and I’m loving being able to get through a book without forgetting what bit I read last.

Make Up Revolution Advent Calendar: Part 1

Make Up Revolution Advent Calendar 1

I thought I would split this down the middle and do 2 posts on what was in my Make Up Revolution Advent Calendar. I bought this when it was on offer in Superdrug for £25 – that’s £1 a product guys, what a bargain! I missed a few days as I was away in Poland and then got a bit excited and opened 6 doors in one go to catch up, so I may have got some of the days the wrong way round! Where the products have names I've put the names in brackets next to the products.

Day 1 – Red Nail Polish
I have loads of red nail polishes so this was a little underwhelming for me. It’s a nice traditional red though that will go with anything and will look lovely with a red lip.

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder

Is it weird that I reach for bronzer much more in Winter than Summer?! In Summer I tend to have a bit of a natural tan but the bright winter sun can make me look really washed out, so I always feel I need a bit of colour to brighten up my pale winter face.

I’ve dug out my trusty The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder. I have the shade Medium Matte which is the lightest shade and it's perfect for pale skin. I must admit I never use bronzer all over my face, I only use it to contour. Because I’m so pale it just looks silly and orange if I apply it all over, so I’d rather stick to adding a bit of colour with some definition – also to stop me having a moon face.

Honey Bronzing Powder is a really pigmented bronzer and a little really does go a long way. Mine looks nearly new but I’ve had this for about 2 years now and I use it on and off throughout the whole year.
