Holiday Make-up

 photo 7a6f55ef-63fc-4384-a232-847eab5425e7_zps87887b53.jpg

So this time next week I'll be in sunny Spain (Cortijo Grande to be precise), and I cannot wait!! This afternoon I went through my clothes and packed most of my things, so I thought I would show you my holiday make-up kit. I don't want to take too much with me, and brushes take up the most room so I've decided to bring products I can use with my fingers.

I'm forgoing foundation, it'll be too hot for that and my skin is pretty clear anyway. I will just use a primer if needed, which I still need to buy. I think I'll go with Benefit 'That Gal' Primer again.

I've got a load of eyeliner and shadow pencils to take with me in different colours, including Gosh, Avon and Borjouis. Lots of variety. Of course I'll be using my Benefit 'They're Real!' mascara, my all time fave! No false lashes as I can't be bothered with faffing around, it'll eat up my drinking time! For my lips I have some Sleek Pout Polish's in pinky shades, and a red Maxfactor lip pencil if I feel like going a bit more glam.

My brows are quite dark so usually I just brush them but I've got a dark brown NYC brow pencil just in case. Then for my cheeks, a red toned Virgin Vie cream blush, a pink shade by Boots Natural Collection and Benefit High Beam to highlight. All that's needed is some blotting papers to take shine away, can anyone recommend some?

Wedding Planning Update: Still Finding the Venue

Oh how I wish that money was mine! Nothing really to report. We've looked at about 6 venues now. It's hard to choose! If we had unlimited money, I would have booked it long ago, but I keep trying to find the good points in all of them just so we keep the budget down. Jim doesn't seem to want to do that. I'm not getting the wedding I want anyway, so I just want to book wherever now. I'm going to apply for some evening & weekend jobs to start asap, as I won't be able to save a thing otherwise.

A post mainly for myself

Okay, so I got to goal weight in March 2012, with Weight Watchers. I've managed to stay within 5lbs of my goal, but lately I've been struggling a lot. My main problem is that I eat really healthily for a while, but for some reason I decide that when I'm happy with myself, I'll eat bad foods and far too much of them. It was my birthday last week and I went away for the weekend, which was loads of fun.

Now my trousers are tighter and the belly bulge is back. Sigh! Another one of my many 'last suppers' at the parent's tonight, and tomorrow I'll be back on track, but this time I'm logging everything on here. Holiday in 2 weeks time and I will NOT feel guilty about eating crap and putting on weight then, because to me that's what holidays are about and I'll regret it more if I don't! I just don't want to eat like that normally. 2 years to lose approximately 10lbs, easily done!

Maxfactor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick

I saw this picture for the advert for Maxfactor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick and just fell in love with the colour (hair and lip!). I thought I would treat myself to a nice red one, as I usually go for pink. I'm really impressed with how bright this turns out once applied. It doesn't last all night (I didn't expect it to with the price), but being a pen stick it's handy to take with you and reapply. It doesn't wear off completely though and does leave a nice stain on your lips, but comes off easily when using a make-up wipe. It didn't dry my lips out either. A good bargain buy I think!
