Make-up Revolution Stash- Part 1

I'm sure you've all heard of the latest bargain beauty brand to hit Superdrug's cosmetics aisle, Make-up Revolution stock a beautiful range of beauty products from as little as £1.00 and it's safe to say I'm hooked. Before the brand hit Superdrug I saw a few blog posts floating around featuring their beautiful £4.00 eyeshadow palettes including their Urban Decay Naked Palette dupes so I ordered myself a few palettes and was so impressed by the quality and pigmentation that I placed another order a a couple of weeks later. Then I saw the stand in Superdrug and knew I was going to keep sneakily growing my collection with naughty lunchtime purchases at work. So now that I have a proper little stash going I thought I'd share with you what I've purchased from the brand so far. 

Eye Dust- £1.00 Each
These are incredible they are super pigmented and amazing quality for just £1.00 each, I especially love Confront which is a beautiful shimmery pink that really compliments the shades in my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. These are loose pigments so obviously there's quite a lot of fallout when you apply them but if you wet your brush first it's not too bad and I'm definitely going to buy more as they have some beautiful shades I currently have my eye on Hysteria and Antic.

Nail Polish- £1.00 each
I haven't tried these yet so I can't comment on the quality but for £1.00 it doesn't really matter if they aren't the best, I pretty much just bought these to try with my stamping plates as they look nice and dark so I'm hoping they'll work quite well.

Baked Blusher- £2.50 each
Again these are fantastic, I was on the lookout for a cheap blusher for work as I didn't want to keep wasting my Benefit Rockateur Blusher and these completely fit the bill they're quite well pigmented whilst being subtle enough for my pale complexion. All I Think About Is You is absolutely perfect for adding just a hint of colour to brighten up my face 

Part 2 of my Make-up Revolution stash will be up later this week.

Wine at Pete's, My hair has suddenly become very long, I've been living in purple lipstick lately, Can't believe how big Marshall has gotten, Kinder Bueno milkshake which was amazing, Spent the evening making cocktails with Pete, I went away to Llandudno with my mom for a few days we had lots of cupcakes, cocktails and tapas we also went for afternoon tea, This random cat seems to have decided our back porch is his new bedroom.

This past few weeks have been a bit up and down for me, whilst I've done lots of nice things including going away for a relaxing few days with my mom and spending lots of time with Pete I have been really struggling with  my anxiety. I've felt really stressed out at work due to horribly rude customers, case in point a lady told me she didn't want to be served by me as I have swollen tonsils and a sore throat, honestly do these people think I want to be standing behind a till all day when I can hardly breathe because of my swollen glands. I would much rather have stayed home in bed with a bowl of soup but as I've had 2 sick days in the past 26 weeks I'm "not allowed" to be sick again or I will get in trouble with my boss. On top of this my manager has decided to put me on delivery shifts starting at 7am despite the fact I don't drive and there isn't a bus that will actually get me there for 7 which I told her when I said I couldn't do the shifts, she told me I'd have to try and that she expects her staff to be fully flexible. I do feel that I'm being taken advantage of as she hasn't asked other members of staff to do any delivery shifts even those who can drive and she's also put me on shifts ending at 9.15 on days when I have to be in for 7 the next day which I'm going to have to make sure she changes. Pete and my dad have offered to take turns dropping me off so I've decided to suck it up and get on with it and as I'll be finishing much earlier on delivery days I'm going to take the opportunity to do lots more blogging, start drawing again and look for a new job with more stable hours.
On a happier note I'm off on a little mini break tomorrow with my maid of honour Beth for a few days of relaxation in Chester which I'm really looking forward to despite this stupid cold which won't budge.

August Inspiration

I'm currently snuggled up in Pete's bed with a horrible cold and enormous tonsils, this combined with a very autumnal breeze in the air has got me looking forward to the autumn, I've dug out my jumpers and fleecey pjs despite the fact it's only August.
I love the autumn it's my favourite season, I love the pretty orange leaves that float around before carpeting the pavements, I love curling up in my kigu with a cup of earl grey and a bunch of cheesy 90's films and I definitely find it easiest to dress well in the autumn.
