Random Post & Catch up // Jan/Feb

Mood: Chilled
Listening to: Ellie Goulding- Explosions

Hello beautiful bloggers!

I've had a bit of a whirlwind two months and haven't had chance to blog properly. I have some great beauty posts coming up very soon, I just need to photograph a few products etc. Meanwhile I thought it would be a nice idea to let you know what I've been up to and what's going on in my life at the moment and let you know what non-beauty things I've been enjoying this month.

Even though January was supposed to be the most depressing month of the year, it was suprisingly good for me. My friend at work managed to get tickets to watch Celebrity Big Brother's Live Eviction and you could briefly see me and the girls from work on TV! I spoke to Made in Chelsea's Ollie Locke's sister and Lee Ryan from Blue's mum. Even though it was absolutely tipping down I had such a good evening and it was one of my favourite days in January.

As some of you may know my sister was expecting a baby girl in February and on the 10th of February at 11.01am, my gorgeous niece Eliza was born weighing 7lb 13oz. Both baby and mother are doing really well, and I'm so happy to have another little niece! Some more fantastic news is that my other sister is having a baby in May AND my brother and girlfriend are expecting in July! So I will have four nieces/nephews by the end of the year!

I would also like to wish Isabelle a happy 4th birthday as it was her birthday on February the 15th! Being the amazing Auntie I am, I volunteered to make her birthday cake this year and the theme was the film Tangled. I would like to mention I am no professional baker and I've never made a cake before so I was really happy with how it turned out!

Hard work!

Lastly I just want to mention one beauty favourite. I've been using the Revlon lip butter in the colour Juicy Papaya so much lately. It's such a gorgeous everyday colour and I've loved using it for so many different looks. Here's a makeup look I've been using a lot lately using Juicy Papaya.
