Looking Forward | 2016 Goals

A new year wouldn’t be right without setting goals for 2016 to aspire to keep over the next 12 months. I done really well keeping to all  most of my resolutions last year (see how I got on here), but I know 2016 is going to be a great year with milestones such as mine and Rich’s 3 year anniversary, finishing uni, hopefully moving back to Devon with a flat and a new job to go back too. Instead of setting resolutions, I’ve set myself a series of goals to drive towards to ensure this year is one of the best yet.

First Impressions – Zoeva En Taupe Brush Set.

I knew exactly what I wanted to buy with my Christmas money! I have been eyeing up the En Taupe collection from Zoeva, especially the En Taupe eyeshadow palette, but having made a sneaky purchase from Freedom Makeup (before my spending ban, don’t you worry!) which included an eyeshadow palette and I saw this eye brush set and it was love at first sight. I just had to add it to my collection before my spending ban began and I was just so excited to share it with you. This is a limited edition range and I’m not sure when the collection stops so I wanted to let you know all about them and why you need these in your life. These were about £36 form Beauty Bay for 6 brushes (which is amazing value compared to MAC and are extremely dupable to their brushes plus I think these look as nice if not better) available here.

First Impressions – Mac X Ellie Goulding.

Finally, I’m talking all about the MAC X Ellie Goulding Collection!!! You only have to know me for a few days to realise I am one of Ellie Goulding’s biggest fans. Everything about her I idolise and I’m definitely obsessed with anything on her name on it from her new album to a magazine with an exclusive interview. So can you even begin to imagine my excitement 30 weeks ago (definitely not been counting down.. or anything.. umm, yeah..) when Mac shared their collaboration with her. I actually screamed (must to Rich’s dismay) and awaited its release very impatiently. So along came December the 14th, it was live and I was on it. I actually made two orders – one before and one after pay day – getting everything from the collection I had my eyes on from the very start. Since the collection is only available until the 15th of January I’m writing about how I’ve got on with the products so far so if you’re thinking about adding them to your collection you’ve got limited time and I hope this post helps make your mind up!

Looking Back – Did I Meet My 2015 New Year Resolutions?

Firstly, Happy New Year lovelies! I can’t believe we are in 2016?! It feels like 2008 was last year and I’m not at all adult enough to be turning 22 this year. I’ve been super excited for 2016 to arrive as I can tell it’s going to be such an amazing year with so many milestones rapidly approaching. I’ve been loving these posts that reflect back on new year resolutions you set yourselves for the past year. I’m usually totally rubbish at keeping new year resolutions but this year I actually tried to prove myself I can stick to a goal and achieve it. So I’ll revisit what I promised myself to do this year and a (totally honest) review of if this was kept or if this was failed.
