Topshop make up !

Im late posting this but hey im a student i was doing work !!! i did infact make it down to my nearest store for a sneaky purchase of Topshops new make up range !!! allready sold by the cute packaging  advertised in nearly every magazine,  i wanted to see if it was really gonna match up to somthing great ….. and as all ways Topshop never disapoints me …

My nearest store is Leicester Highcross unforgenetly, not that its a bad store just if i had went to birmingham ( my home town ) i could of got my make up done for me on there special promotion but you gotta just work with what you got….

Im not normally a bright make up kinda girl , gold shimmer eye shadow and mascara , and red lipstick is a must but other than that i dont venture much in to paintbox brights but then i found somthing that was so lovely i had to try the tester …. Its was Brighton rock lipstick a really bright pink , totally not me but actually looked quite hot !

And also i am going to Brighton for my birthday so im sure it was a sign i had to buy it  *wink *wink  …, I didnt stop there i tried the blusher , brozer, Skin tint ,  some lovely orange lip balm that smelt amazing … and then i saw the nail varnishs …. that is one department were i do dip into the paintbox …. I found what my friend calls “blue tac ” paint  a lovey lilac nail varnish By the name Parma Violet …. you know like the sweets ?

And with only two left on the shelf i has to grab it before someone else took it away from me . To be honest with you i could quite happily throw my make up collection away at home ( apart from my MAC foundation and Victoria Jackson bronzer ….best ever ! ) and start from scratch with topshop make up and make my dresser look oh so pretty but what student has got that type of money ??

Verdict overall im sold , packaging lovely , colours on trend , smells lovely and looks hot …. what more can you ask for ?

(Excuse the hair this is how it naturally looks , took out the weave… will have long hair back soon…hopefully )

Hello green eyes… where did my blue eyes go  ?

Lips in Brighton Rock £8,   Nails in Parma Violet £5

Is it too late to say merry christmas??

Im really sorry for being such a shit blogger part of it is my fault for being so busy and the rest is some very sad circumstances…….

Were do i start …erm well 1st of all my lovely house became less lovely … to the point where i was hardly even in it i could go into details but its a long story and if you know me well enough you would have heard me complain countless times….. other than that i have some really bad news that has effected the blog quite significantly my beautiful amazing iMac apple computer was stolen for legal reasons i wont go into it but wow it has left a big empty space on my desktop and in my heart !!! lol it sounds sad but my whole life was on that computer countless pictures of my family, videos of my siblings, personal information, bookmarks of amazing artists..blogs and shops and most importantly priceless amount of beautiful future portfolio work of my photography !!!!

It’s just what i needed after an amazingly shit 2009 ….. being broke, failing my course, the worst summer ever, then uni losing my re submission work then nearly not even being able to go back to uni ……

Apart from being hit by a car it was the “best” worst ending to the ultimate shitest year in my life it was 2006 all over again …. even though now i look back at 2006 as a year i learnt so many lessons ( mostly about men … or should i say boys ?) i suppose next year i will look back at 2009 and realise that i learnt alot about the choices i make and the company i keep !!!

Well apart from all this horrible bad news i had i still have my ideas and my dreams so i can continue to make even more brilliant work….. i have my health and i have my family and friends and all i can say is when bad things like this happen it shows you who are your real friends !!!!

I hope everyone else had an amazing christmas mine was okay time of work was the best thing ever and seeing the little ones open their presents….. i got some Vivienne Westwood boots and jewelry off kevin and a necklace off anna all of it i love very much and then make up and bath stuff which is always lovely …..

No matter what happens keep smiling : )
