Ah Sephora.  You offer so much promise with your beautifully lined stores full of my favourite things.  I am soooo glad these are not in the UK.  I'd never be able to save any money!

Needless to say I spent ages in there (I meant 2 hours at least) and I also spent a small fortune!  Loved it though.  And the boyf dutifully stayed with me the entire time.  Well, no, actually he stayed in the mens fragrance section and located 3 amazing aftershaves!

Here's what I got…

As you can see I went a bit crazy over lip products!  No idea why.  

So far, I've only tried the L'Occitane Hand Cream (amazing but I already knew this), the Clinique Chubby Sticks (great colour but not so long wearing), both NARS lippies (swatches coming soon), the big pink lip balm (review coming soon) and the perfumes (both of which I'd say it took me an hour to choose because I was being so fussy and only wanted perfumes I was crazy about - these fit the bill).

I am pretty excited to FINALLY get on the OCC train around 3 years late!

Ok, so it's been a while to say the least.

I've been wondering whether or not to carry on with this blog - mainly because I feel that I don't want to just blog about beauty any more.  In fact, I would rather blog about anything and everything and therefore it felt like my blog was slightly restrictive given it was titled a beauty blog.

Also, I don't quite feel like the name of my url really works for me anymore.  I mean, everyone grows up a bit right?  Having said that, I am sticking with it for now but I have changed the title and I am going to blog about things that interest me in the hope that the content may interest you too.

Before I get started, here's a little update of what's been going on with me…

Most excitingly, after 9.5 years together me and the boyf are engaged!

The boyf (or should I say fiancé) proposed to me on an amazing trip to NYC for my boyfriend's 30th within the past month - I am VERY excited!

Also, NYC was amazing - I was there for 10 nights and ate loads, shopped lots and walked for miles and miles!

I've also lost quite a lot of weight over the summer (although in NYC I ate and drank what I wanted), as like a lot of girlies out there I tend to gain the lbs in winter.  I'm am now a regular at the gym - which is something I have been trying to achieve for 10 years!

I've also got into baking - which is not so good for the diet/healthy eating lifestyle!  That said, it is more so that I can take sweet goods home to the family when I see them rather than so that I can gorge myself to death on baked goods haha!

Other than that there is not much more to report.  Obviously I do still have an addiction to beauty products so there are lots of beauty reviews to come.

I also love food though and clothes so expect to see a lot more on that front also!

Bye for now!
