Christmas Gift Guide | For Him

I’ve been terrible at getting gift guides up this year!  Work has been manic, life has been bumpy, I am ill and the gift guides have suffered.  This one is for the men in your life.  I find it difficult to buy for men.  Although they’re not fussy, there just aren’t a lot of variety in terms of what you can get them.  So keep reading for my selection for Men's Christmas Gift Guide.

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette Review+Swatch

Urban Decay has been the brand of the year for me.  Obviously it’s a cult brand but I hadn’t tried much from them until 2015 (yes, really!)  and just fell head over heels in love!  Everything I’ve tried from them has just blown me away.  Khila (Miss Budget Beauty) always mentions how she benchmarks all other eyeshadows against UD ones as they’re just the best quality out there; this always made me want to try out UD eyeshadows.  I did manage to get my hands in the UD Naked Smoky palette - I will review this with a GRWM hopefully.  But I have something even better for you today!  Yes, the much awaited Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette (£40)!

5 Under £5 #2

I have to say, I struggled with this one.  It’s getting harder and harder to find good products that are under a fiver in the high street!  Everything is so pricey!  L’Oreal mascaras are like £12?! I digress, but you know what I mean.  Although high street makeup’s getting better, the prices are getting higher and higher.  I have found some great little bits though that I absolutely love and adore.

From My Stash | Eyeshadow Crayons

Eyeshadow sticks are my favourites at the moment.  It really does make life so much easier to swipe shadows on your lids with a crayon and just blend.  Genius!  I’d stopped wearing eyeshadows regularly as it felt like such effort – but I’m back in love with it and here is a roundup of my favourites!

5 Ways To Stay Positive

I find it the hardest to stay positive in the winter months.  It’s dark outside when I go to work, and when I finish work – it’s hard to feel uplifted and motivated when even the weather isn’t in the mood!  I’ve been feeling more and more tired and lethargic, it all adds up to that feeling of ‘can’t be bothered’ and fuel a negative mindset.  I’ve in turn found it difficult to even blog, I just couldn’t bring myself round to doing anything creative/productive.  So decided to turn it around as otherwise, it’d be a long and miserable winter.  I’ve been trying various things to keep myself in a positive mind set and continue to remain positive every day.  I thought I’d share some of my tips which might help you.
