Whats Ipsy? They are a $10/month beauty subscription box that sends you deluxe and full size samples every month! Click here to check them out. Ipsys January theme is ‘All Eyes on You’ which features a super cute retro bag that is patterned on the front and blue on the back. Here are the products I recieved: MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow in Mudcake – $22.50 This is a full sized product, at first look when I opened this, I wasn’t in love but once I swatched it I saw it’s true beauty. It’s kind of a brown-plum with a hint of green glitter, had me mesmerzied! For being a 100% mineral all natural shadow is has an extremely soft, creamy texture blends out beautifully! It is also very versatile, you can use it by itself, over other shadows, or as the picture above shows the different pay offs while wet, primed, and diffrent bases(ipsy’s picture). I’m not sure of the staying power yet but I will keep you all…

He was nothing compared to Ralph! – 14th April 1998

Tuesday 14thWe went ice skating today. There were loads if girls and Freddie. There was me, Emma, Rach, Georgia, Lena, Olivia, Rach’s sister and her mate and then Freddie. It was quite good actually and there was this lad in a green coat (who looked a bit like Ewan Swann) who kept “accidentally” falling into me. They all thought he fancied me. Maybe he did but he didn’t stand much of a chance coz he was nothing compared to Ralph! It’s snowing really heavily and it’s gone quite deep now. I really want a snowball fight with my mates tomorrow but I don’t think that there’s much chance of that happening coz Mum’s making me go shopping for new school stuff tomorrow and Abby and I have got a dentist appointment too. What a fun day I’m gonna have – NOT! I’m really worried that I’m going to run out of time to do my homework as well. I’ve only got two pieces but they’re really long and…

My Daily Bread // Family Chili Recipe.

It’s that time of year. Your Christmas tree is probably up, most of the Thanksgiving leftovers have been eaten through, and possibly, there’s a little bit of snow on the ground. For me, two of those things are true,?still no snow days for me yet! But even if none of those things are true, you cannot go wrong with chili. If I thought my last time in the kitchen was bad, then this time is in a category all it’s own. I have to admit, getting the hang of cooking is much harder than it looks! Getting all the right ingredients, preparing the food successfully, everything running smoothly, at the same/correct time, and then coming out deliciously? Much harder said then done. But, I learn something new every time. This time around I found out just how important it is to have simple recipes when you don’t cook often. One reason is, you will waste a ton of money on random ingredients that will end up going bad before you…

The English summer is definitely over so this means only one thing, we have to get out the jumpers. Although I moan about the English winter being so wet and grey I must admit I do love the fashion during this season, jumpers, coats and boots! Today I have been and bought my first new winter clothes to add to the wardrobe and this literally makes me so excited! Ive gone for a grey oversized jumper and a pair of high heeled chelsea boots. Ive paired these with a pair of leather look leggings and my grey Kurt Geiger bag. I feel like these are all staple items for the wardrobe as can go with everything and will always look great! Jumper – H&M £14.99 Boots – H&M £24.99 Bag- Kurt Geiger – £150 Leggings – River Island £9.99 Iv
