REVIEW | Topshop High Pigment Eyeshadow

eyeshadow - Topshop
brow gel - Benefit

So basically, I am not a make-up kinda girl, but this little box of goodness caught my eye when I was doing some, very rare, browsing in Topshop. I love the geometric design on the box and that's what drew me to it. This palette of three is cleverly named 'Prism' and the pigments are strong and vibrant. I used the matte black to create the infamous "smokey eye" effect the other night and today I used the rose gold/ pale bronze as an eyeliner underneath my bottom eyelid. The colours are pretty safe whilst adding a hint of shine to any outfit.

Also, I'm obsessed with grooming my eyebrows to perfection now and Benefit Speed Gel is great. I just used clear mascara before and that does the trick if you don't wanna pay the price of Benefit!

LIFE | Re-evaluation

So I've decided I need to start keeping up on this blog as there are many readers out there that probably don't have Instagram/Twitter which I document most of my stuff on. Here is a round up of the past couple of weeks in pictures.

My boy, Andy, left for Manchester yesterday and the chances are I won't see him again for a year as he goes to Hong Kong in September. We went out for Mexican food at Chilaca's and the staff and service there was brilliant. We indulged in a few quirky beverages, possibly a few too many, including Tequila Teacups which were delish! The next morning was pretty hazy, as you can imagine, and we went for brunch at this new joint on Corporation Street called Boston Tea Party.

Factory Fox, my near namesake, were kind enough to send me some fresh tees for summer and I absolutely love them, the quality is pristine. 

I had a really fun shoot for Diffusion on Thursday and it involved the new Wildfox sunglasses, might have to get myself a pair! I also have a thing for red lipstick since I accidentally purchased one the other day. Everyone seems to like the red lip on me, which came as a bit of a surprise as I don't see myself as a make-up kinda girl.

Andy bought me this lovely, soft grain, leather phone pouch from Cos for me, just before he left.

My shug, Buddy, also had a trip to the barbers this week.

And, finally, after damaging the strap mechanism on my limited edition Swatch whilst training for pole vault the other week, I finally got it fixed within seconds by the lovely staff in store. Kudos to the Swiss giant for helping us loyal customers for free.

Let's hope I keep on top of the posts!
