I've been ill

I don't know if anyone actually checks this blog for updates but if you do I'm sorry it's been so long! I've been ill, I still am in fact but I'm getting better! I haven't been completely incapacitated or anything but I've been feeling bad enough that I just haven't wanted to communicate with the world! Fingers crossed I'm on the mend though....

So due to being ill I really don't have much news but I will do a proper blog in a few days time about what little news I have! I have my birthday and brother's wedding to tell you all about along with some pictures.

I've just ordered a load of samples from Fyrinnae. I'm so excited to get them! I know they will probably take a while to get here but I'm sure they will be worth the wait. I swore to myself that I wouldn't get anymore pigments for a while as I have so many but.... well I'm weak ! I've heard a couple of people talk about Fyrinnae on youtube, but it was a video I watched of Magicxmaid (take a look at her page, she's fab!) that made me take a look at the website and I'm glad I did because I fell in lust with this colour -

Isn't it gorgeous!! It's probably a bit bright for some people but I think it's going to be amazing, especially as an eyeliner! Blue is not necessarily my best colour but I can't help it, I love it! I will post some pics on here once it all comes. I've ordered about 10 I think. Can't wait!

My boyfriend is going to the US with work next week. He's going for just over a week. It will be the longest we've ever been away from each other since we got together 2 years ago. I will miss him loads but I have to admit I do like some time on my own occasionally so in that respect it will be nice! On the other hand it will be a long week as we've only lived here (Manchester) for a few months and I especially don't really know many people and my hometown is about 4 hours away so I will be overdosing on alone (although I will have the cat of course) time I think! I am going to go back to my hometown 1 of the weekends though as it's a friend's birthday so that will be cool!

Of course, the biggest bonus of Maz going to the US is that he can buy me lots of presents!! I've given him a MASSIVE list of makeup to get for me!! Stuff that's either cheaper there or that I can't get here. I've told him that he can't take any clothes as he'll need the space to bring back the makeup. Also it's my birthday soon after he gets back so crossed fingers I'll be getting some of the things on the list!!

Anyway I think that's enough of my boring life!

Check out the Fyrinnae website -

They ship to the UK and it's very reasonable postage! In fact it's cheaper than most UK companies charge I think!

Urban Decay Lipsticks

How much do I love and want the new Urban Decay lipsticks?! I don't even wear lipstick! A classic case of me falling for the packaging. Anyway, here they are and you have to agree that they sure are pretty!!

The lipstick's themselves even have Urban Decay written on them! I think it's time I start to wear lipstick...or at least buy a few to experiment with ;)

Love it!

Lazy Day

Today I have been so lazy! My boyfriend is in London this weekend so I've had the place to myself. I had all sorts of plans but I have done none of them.... oh well, we all need a lazy day occasionally right?!

I've just spent the last 30 minutes updating my wishlist on the Urban Decay website... (Urban Decay is my favourite makeup product!) The thing is there isn't actually a UK version of the website and the US one doesn't even deliver over here so why am I doing it..... I've emailed a copy of my wishlist to my boyfriend who is going to the US in a couple of weeks...I just hope he gets the hint!! Urban Decay is, of course, available over here but I find that they don't have much choice at the places near me that stock it and the only place I've ever seen loads of it is in London which seeing as I live in Manchester (about 4 hours drive) is a bit far!

One thing I especially want that I haven't been able to find here is the eyeshadow vault -

I don't actually have enough eyeshadows to fill it at the moment but that's something I'm planning to rectify!
I also really want every single palette they do. In fact I just want everything they do fullstop!! I don't know why I love it so much...admittedly the packaging does have something to do with it!!
Unfortunately I don't have the money to get much of it though so it's just the occasional treat, the rest of my makeup collection is mostly lower range stuff but I love it all :)
Another thing I really want to try is the Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I've heard really good things about it on youtube and I want to see for myself whether it's better than Urban Decay Primer Potion!

Too Faced is a product we don't get in the UK though so I either hope that a miracle happens and my boyfriend finds himself in Sephora whilst in the US or that I can find it on Ebay! That's the problem with watching videos on youtube, I want all these products that we don't get here!
Anyway, I think I have waffled on enough about makeup for one day!
One more thing though, I was really chuffed that the first comment I got on my blog was from Pink from youtube (pinkpornstar1)!! She is one of my fave people on youtube so I was really pleased that she commented :)

My first blog!

So this my first blog! I've been reading so many other people's recently that I thought I'd give it a go too.... I don't know if it's going to be interesting though and I'm not sure how frequently I'll update it!

At the moment my page is looking pretty bare and boring but bear with me while I learn how to make it look a bit more interesting!!

So what can I say in my first blog.....

Well I'm a makeup addict and a youtube addict. I have recently started making videos on youtube about my makeup and doing a few looks although my main love is actually watching other peoples videos! I haven't made very many yet but I'm getting there! My youtube channel is - if anyone's interested!

I love looking for and buying makeup. I spend WAY too much time surfing the net looking for makeup bargains!

At the moment I am looking for a dress and accessories for my brother's upcoming wedding. Once I've found the dress I can start planning the makeup!
I'm very excited about the wedding and have been thinking about it for months!

So I think I'll leave it at that for my first blog... I will try to update it regularly!
