I have literally had the most unproductive week ever, which in a way has actually been really nice. I seemed to acquire the week off work for my birthday, which has actually worked out really well as the weather has been good..except today which has been storm central! All this sun has made me want to do a little bit of nail art too as it seems like forever since I last got the brushes out (when I say brushes, I mean dotting tool!)

So on Sunday it was my birthday. I am literally one of these people that looks forward to my birthday every year but I found this year a little different. So far, 2014 has been pretty rubbish so I haven't really been looking forward to it or any occasion. As usual in my house, everyone pulled together to make the best of a bad situation and I had a lovely day!
I can't ever ask for a Purple Rain without singing it in the style of Prince.
My niece made me these cute little gingerbread cakes.
Sunning ourselves obvs.
What more could you want than a gargoyle in sunglasses?
I hope you are all enjoying this lovely weather! I have been a bit of a lucky so-and-so as I have had the week off so have been basking in it. ♥

I haven't brought a new eyeliner in such a long time, I find it is one of those staple items that I just tend to replace as I go along. I usually just renew my L'Oreal Blackbuster pen as it definitely is one of my favourites and seems to last me forever. This time I opted for something a little different and purchased L'Oreal Super Liner so I could create slightly finer lines. I have tried this in midnight purple before, but haven't ever tried the black version.
I will say this needs a really good shake inbetween dipping the sponge, otherwise it doesn't seem to pick up any extra product, but otherwise this works really well. The staying power with this amazing, it lasts me a whole day without even budging at all. I even have a slight battle to remove it at night it is that good, not that I am complaining it means that I don't have to worry about being flickless where my eye makeup has smudged off. The amount of times this has happened to me is ridiculous, anyone else?
I want to apologise for my lack of blogging/social media-ness at the mo! I seem to be in my own little bubble these days, but finally I seem to be getting back on track, so thank you for sticking around! ♥

I have had this lipstick for absolutely ages but have only really just started using it. I fancied a bit more of a lighter shade so picked up Snob from the MAC counter. I loved it instantly when I swatched it on my hand as I thought it was the perfect summer pink, a nice mix of dusky pink with a bit of a purpley nude tone thrown in.
