New Blush Love - Lord And Berry

Whilst in my local Sally store the other week stocking up on OPI polishes I has to pop over and have a look at the Lord And Berry stand, now i'll be honest I don't really know much about this make up brand apart from their lipsticks are amazing as I have collected a few and their price range is around the same as MAC.I had a look at their blush collection and just picked one at random to buy which is £13.98 and untill last week it has just been sitting in my make up bag that was untill about 10 days ago.........

Firstly how pretty is that?? I honestly do not think I own a shade like this, and I've been sitting here staring at it trying to decide how I would describe it, well firstly it is a matte no shimmer in it whatsoever so I personally think I will be wearing this in the winter and near Christmas more often than in the Summer, for some reason and how odd my mind is I was staring at it thinking 'Oooh Mulled wine, baggy jumpers,open fire' ha I do love the Autumn months I really do.

It also looks very different in the pan compared to when swatched, I would personally call this a berry/terrocotta shade which just looks so pretty on the cheeks although it is matte it is very very pigmented and I use my Real Techniques Blush brush and just light sweep it over the pan as with this blush too much and you will end up looking like a clown and let''s be honest that is a look noone wants.

The only downside is they don't have names just numbers this is 2813. I think I will purchase more of their blushes in the future.

Do you own any Lord and Berry products? What do you think of them?

My Hero My Father

So today I'm doing a different kind of post as much as I like doing posts on make up and stuff sometimes I see my blog as my personal 'diary' something to look back on in years to come and just an outlet to get stuff off my chest etc, and it's now nearly 5 months since the worse day of my life -
 My amazing Dad passed away very suddenly 2 days before he was due home from Hospital, and the past 5 months have been the worst of my life I have never known pain like this and I have cried  more tears in these past few months than I have in my enitre life.
My Dad was my hero IS my hero, the nicest,funniest,kindest man you could ever wish to meet he put everyone before himself and went out of his way to help others. He was life and soul of a party getting everyone on the dance floor, cracking jokes, doing stupid 'Dad ' dances at weddings ha, and making everyone howl with laughter constantly his sense of humour was second to none his whole face lit up when he smiled and even now I can still hear him belly laugh whilst watching The Big Bang Theory which in turn would make me howl with laughter and we'd both be sitting there laughing non stop.
Everyone said he was larger than life which he was and he will always be my hero, all I know is that life was a much better place with my Dad in it.
Mum was saying to me the other day ' I'm so proud with how you are coping,Dad would be so proud of you' which really touched me, but if i'm honest I'm just taking it a day at a time I mean there are songs which I can't listin to at the min as it's just too hard, and I try not to think about Dad not being here too much because when I do the pain is too much I feel like i'm suffocating because the thought of never seeing my Dad ever again shatters my heart all over again, and the thought that one day when I get married I won't have my Dad walking me down the aisle is heart breaking.
One of the things I had spent SO many years worrying about and dreading happened to me on that day in March and it changed my whole world forever my Hero was gone :( and my heart shattered and I didn't know how I could ever carry on without my Dad, but then as my Dad always used to say
' Everything will be just fine, stop worrying and start smiling'
So for my Dad thats what I've been doing, he always promised me everything would be fine and to enjoy life, so thats what i'm trying my best to do plus it helps I have the most incredible family support and friends who have been my rock, especially my amazing boyfriend Nathan who has truely been my rock and I know it's been hard on him as he was very close to my Dad.
So Dad I know I will see you again one day, and I will forever love you and Miss you, you were the greatest Father and Friend and I will spend the rest of my life making you proud of me, as my heart bursts with pride when I say you are my Father :)
I Love You Forever And Always xxxxxx

July Faves

So it's that time again the monthly faves, I still can not we are now in August where the hell is this year going? Is flying by so fast, Not much in my faves this month but here we go.......

Essie Sugar Daddy & Vanity Fairest - To be honest I have not worn much polish during July which for a nail polish addict like myself is a shocker but my nails were really starting to feel the effects of constantly wearing polish so I decided to let them breath for a bit and it has really helped although felt very weird, but when I have been wearing it i've been loving sheer polishes and baby pinks, first it was Fiji and then most recently it has been Sugar Daddy which is a very sheer baby pink and gives a lovely hint of colour to nails and then the other one has been Vanity Fairest which is just a stunning pastal pink with a pretty shimmer in it.

Mac 'Painterly' Paint Pot -I've had this for ages now and got SO much left and I think I used this every time I wore make up in July it is the perfect base for my eye shadows and really holds them in place and also I've been using it as a concealer under my eyes now i'm not sure if it is meant for that but my god it is amazing!

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW Foundation- Had this for a few months now and it plain to say I love this, it so light and gives good coverage and easy to apply all the things I love in a foundation and has good lasting power.

Compeed Blister Patches- HA a rather random fave this month but being such a short arse I need *cough want *cough* to wear high heels quite often just to give myself some height but my god there is nothing worse than on a night out and the back of ya shoes rubbing the hell out of ya heels well thanks to these magic things that no longer happens, I whack them on my heels before we head out and aaah no rubbing and no blisters woop!

No7 Fanomenal Lashes Mascara-  I've been using this for a few weeks not and I have to say I am very impressed, it the first No7 Macara I have purchased and was a bit dubious at first just because I have never tried their mascaras before and only got this on a whim as had one of their £5 of vouchers but I would happily re purchase this as makes my lashes look so much fuller and longer, a few people have been asking what mascara it is i'm wearing when I use it so i take that as a good thing.

Mac Crew Highlighter-I've had this for a few months now and I know it is sold as a highlighter but it does not suit my skin as highlighter so I use it as a blush, when swirled all together it gives a beautiful subtle flushed look to my cheeks which for the summer months I really like and have been wearing this a lot for the past month
