HELLO STRANGER...

Long time no see ey?!

I vowed that the last time I restarted this blog that I would keep up with it, and I was doing so well! Unfortunately, third year university work and life in general completley got in the way, and a lot has changed!

So the ast few months in a nutshell, consited of the following...I have now graduated university with a BA Hons in Graphic Design, however, I am working full time in the accounts department of an estate agency in Manchester, not at all what I expected! Its not something I'm hopefully going to be doing long term as ,not only have I graduated and bagged a full time job, but I also moved 20 miles away from my little flat in Salford to Wigan! Therefore, my commute to work is a little ridiculous considering my salary, however, money is like gold dust to recent gradutes who aren't lucky enough to walk straight into their dream job!

So, now things are settling down a tad, I've established a routine, we're not living out of boxes, and I no longer have the constant worry of uni work in the back of my mind, I thought I best get back on the horse with my blog and YouTube! So this is just a bit of a comeback post. Obviously theres a lot more to catch up on, but we'll get onto that in other posts!

I thought I'd come back with a teeeeny tiiiny haul, as today I explored our nearby retail park for the first time and bought a few essentials from boots. The two lipsticks I picked up are the Kate Moss for Rimmel matte lipsticks. I needed to re-purchase the 107, wine sorta shade as it is my favourite lipstick ever and I managed to lose mine. Rimmel also had a buy one, get a second half price deal on therefore I couldn't resist getting another. I decided to pick up this mid-tone pink shade as I don't really hve anything like it and I thought I may as well get something I wouldn't normally buy since it was on offer! I also picked up this pen tip liquid liner from Maybelline, just to have a trail run. I've heard nothing about it but it seemed reasonably priced and the swatch was a very black black, if you know what I mean. I've only ever used gel liner with a liner brush so I think this is going to take a bit of getting used to, but I'll report back with my thoughts!

And my final purchases were just Nivea moisturiser, because it is amazing and supe cheap, and some essential deoderant. Not the most exciting purchases but I thought I'd share since I'm getting back in the swing of things...again...

Anyways, I promise to try my best to be consistent with the blog posts again, but for now, I am going to love you and leave you and lounge on the sofa under a blanket, with my candles lit and play some Sims 4...Night night!
