Hi Lovelies. Hope we are all well and that you’ve been enjoying 2020 so far. Not sure I’m loud and proud about my love for brows but, who doesn’t love a good strong brow, so let’s talk brows, Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wizz. While I was on roaccutane, I just fell out of love with getting them done. That being said, I’d highly recommend getting your eyebrows threaded (or waxed if you like) and tinted. This takes a lot of the hard work out.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills pomade in Medium Brown was my go to, at the time I was wearing a full, heavy, face of makeup, but now that I’m wearing a softer look the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wizz is my go to. I tend to get mine from FeelUnique. They have a great selection of shades, mine is Medium Brown, but it’s always out of stock.
Hi Lovelies. Christmas is in full swing so it’s time for my Stocking Filler Ideas Posts. I’ve done something a little bit different this time around, and I’ve selected some retailers and got a bit of a selection from each. This post features ASOS, Boots, Dunnes and a couple of extras.
ASOS Stocking Filler Ideas
I’m always keen on a few jeweller bits in the stocking, this necklace and ring, both in a gold colour are a great little surprise in the stocking. “Hair jewellery” seems to be getting bigger and bigger each year, so these clips are sure to wow. We are all trying to create less waste, so I thought a Keep Cup would be a great gift idea this year. And sure it wouldn’t be a MagpieMagpie blog post if it didn’t include some make-up. The Mac Duo Pack, Too Faced Lipstick and liner would be perfect stocking fillers.
Right… so… Let me start off by saying last year’s resolution didn’t go fantastic, but I did have a HUGE amount of change; and we all know I’m not great with change! 2018 was the year of change (mostly positive) so I struggled quite a bit, but I’m so keen on 2019 being the year I really get back on track!
I’m gonna link last year’s resolutions HERE a number of them will be the same, but sure hey ho. We might as well start the New Blog Year (my new year starts in Feb) in the traditional way.
1. GET MY DRIVING LICENCE
I’ve been saying I’m getting my licence for YEARS now, but my focus this year is to do the theory test… test, a few times and then apply to for the second learners permit. Once that’s all done I’ll book in some lessons and the test and try my best to “GET IT DONE”.
2. CONTINUE TO SURROUNDED MYSELF WITH LIKE MINDED PEOPLE
I don’t think people put enough emphasis on this. Friendship is a choice, so why choose people who bring you down. I used to be very trusting and open, but over the years I’ve made changes to protect myself more. I’ve become a bit more closed off and to be honest it’s better for me. I can still be an open book, but I don’t give 100% anymore. It won’t be the right choice for everyone, but for me, at this time in my life it’s best.
3. CONTINUE TO NEST
I’ve been working hard to make our “house” a home. It’s obviously a home but, I want not just any home, a home to be proud of, a home that is organised and a pleasure to come home to. Currently I have so much shit without a real place that it’s become a bit overwhelming. I will have a place for everything and everything will be in its place, that is my goal for 2019. I’m really getting there with being more organised and I’m sooo pleased with my progress, the Spark Joy movement really speaks to me so I’m gonna try get Jarek on board and we’ll Marie Kondo the flat!
I’m fit to scream!! Not only have I been trying to write this post for about 2 / 3 months now but now my stupid blog has decided it doesn’t wanna play ball! Thankfully it’s all sorted now!
Anyway, lets finally talk about these fecking rings…
When it comes to jewellery, rings are my downfall! I think thats why I love stacking rings so much. I can have multiple rings on at once and its expectable!
As I’m sure you’ve guessed by now I love me some pandora! And my previous post was all about “My Pandora Charm Bracelet Collection” Over the years I’ve acquired many so here’s a look at my Pandora ones.
Hi Lovelies. Who’s ready to talk about Red Lipsticks and Nail Varnish perfect for Christmas. A bold statement lip has become one of my staples, but a red lip can still be daunting even for me. No better time to try that red lipstick than Christmas. A bold statement lip can take your look to another level, red is one of the most iconic power lips and in my opinion, a must have for anyone who loves make-up.
I have a Red Lipstick and Nail Varnish Perfect For Christmas, and all year round, for everyone in this line up. From the novice to the pro, bargain to blow out. I’ve kept it classic and went for that “Christmas” red, but do keep in mind that these are what I’ve chosen for me. Meaning they suit my skin tone, hair colouring and style, they may not work for everyone.
I’ve also decided to throw in matching nail varnish. I love matchy matchy so, if I can match my lippie and my nails, I’m all over it!
This is one for the novice. Not too expensive and usually on 3 for 2 in boots, so perfect to play around with.
Link to Nail Varnish and Lippie.
This will be one for the advanced class. You’ll have tried a cheaper red before and are ready to splash out.
