It’s always a great feeling when you buy something new, give it a try and it turns into something you use everyday. I have to admit that I was skeptical about Tanya Burr’s make up range when it first launched. I think it was the packaging that confused me. While it’s definitely cute, I feel like I’m at a stage where the things I buy are things I hope will be repeat purchases and turn into something of a personal style for me. And will I really want cutesy, pink packaging when I’m 30, 40…? Regardless of my doubts about the packaging all the products are fantastic and the new palettes that I’ve added to my collection have become firm favourites. The cheek palette has a really great bronzer, even for a pale girl like me, plus a pigmented blush and a highlighter that’s just perfect for adding an everyday sheen.
I also picked up one of the new Soft Luxe eye palettes recently and have been equally as impressed. I’m not normally one to use eyeshadow on a daily basis as it’s just an extra step that takes up time in the mornings. I’m far more likely to sit and carefully apply a nice eyeshadow for a special occasion. But after picking up the Birthday Suit palette, with it’s lovely shimmery champagne-y pink colour, I’ve been popping a little bit on everyday.
Tiny bags are another new thing I’ve been really into at the moment. After picking up this cute little thing from Primark, I’ve been opting for smaller and lighter recently, rather than my usual huge handbag that I often lug around with me. It’s so much quicker and easier the throw in your essentials, but also it limits that amount of, well, crap that I tend to end up with in my bag during the day.
The Barry M Strobe Cream is a bit of a saviour in terms of highlighters on the high street. Apart from Tanya Burr’s cheek palette as mentioned before there’s not many highlighters from the high street that I would really recommend. But the Strobe Cream is on another level. A really blinding shimmer. If it was appropriate for the office, then I would cover my whole face in it.
I can not tell you how happy I am that Gilmore Girls is on Netflix now. It’s one of my all time favourite shows. I love Rory and Lorelai and I’m firmly in Team Jess. I’m so excited for the new series in November. I’m basically like all the Harry Potter fans at the moment (tbh I probably won’t be reading the Cursed Child…sorry!).
