fresh to deathh

OKAY admit it. Who drank/ate/partied way too much the last few days? Well you don't have much time to recuperate til NYE where it's done all over again!

I'm trying to drink loads more water than usual, eat healthy and go long winter walks each day to keep fresh faced. Also been over-dosing on fruit teas cos my new cup is far too pretty to ever put down...

If on the day none of that's worked I always have some trusty make-up wonder things to fall back on. I absolutely love Givenchy Acti'mine which is a highligher/illuminator, make up base and it is just amazing. And it smells SO GOOD! A similar cheaper alternative is Benefits That Gal, which feels a little more watered down compared to Givenchy but is still very good and also smells AMAZING.

How do you look your best after partying too hard - do you go all health freak or do you cheat? or a little bit of both like me ? ;)

new years approaching fast...

I'm quite nervy about the new year approaching so fast! At the moment I am lulling away in my little cocoon, filled with my mamas cooking, kids movies on tv, and lie ins 'til lunch time. And I know this cannot last. I want to enjoy the last few days of hibernation before New Years Eve chilling out, before the serious work kicks in. Then it will be non-stop til May, by the end of which I will hopefully have a lot of exciting things lined up!

But let's not think too far ahead. Some NYE partying needs to be done first. I'm going to a house party with friends, as town is always so crazy busy and you can't ever get in anywhere without queuing for hours and there's never any taxis home that won't charge you a small fortune. So I have my dress, my booze and everything set to go for a fun night with friends <3 which is really what new years is about anyway isn't it.

I'm debating whether to make any resolutions or not, as really, do I ever keep them? 

What are your New Years Eve plans and what will your resolutions be??

Merry Christmas!

I hope you are all over-indulging to the max! 
Happy holidays x.

baby, it's cold outside..

The skies were clear and the ground freshly powdered with snow, the perfect excuse to wrap up warm and spend the day exploring. Glasgow's West End was looking like a Christmas picture postcard, and after soaking up these pretty scenes and enjoying the fresh air, some gingerbread lattes and chats with best friends warmed me right up <3

back 2 MAC

Not gonna lie, it takes me AGES to collect my six empty MAC containers. Their foundations/concealers last me ages as do the eyeshadows and the only reason my empty bronzer is in the mix is cause it broke and fell out :( This is why I don't want to just pick aaaany free lippy to swap for my empties,  I need the perfect one!

You can tell quite a bit about a girl from her lipstick, my friend Fee is Chatterbox and my friend Carolyn's signature lip is Myth.. my top favey MAC lipstick colours are Hue and Crosswires for neutral, Bombshell for pink and and Eager for red. I do fancy Chatterbox, but as it will be a freebie I think I might try something completely different. I may even be as adventurous as a purple tone, such as Up the Amp! Any suggestions?

the wedge lace-up boot

Recently got myself a sweet pair of wedge lace-up boots. Best ever for winter, they're so comfy and easy to walk in and I love them!

Now I got my eyes set on these Jeffery Campbell bad boys...
