Travel Make Up Bag......

For my birthday this year Nath surprised me with a weekend stay in London, we stayed at the amazing Park Plaza Riverbank.... the views were incredible.
For two days beforehand I has trying to narrow my make up bag down to a sensible amount to take, as I have got the art of over packing be it clothes,makeup,etc down to a T. This year though I was quite pleased with how I got on.....
Rimmel Wake me up foundation//wake me up concealer//Nyx Peach Blush//Elizabeth Arden Soft Radiance bronzer//Rimmel Scandal eyes retro glam mascara//Nyx Doll Eyes Mascara//Mac Paint pot 'Painterly'//L'oréal shadow 'Brun Lame//Avon Super Shock liner in black// Nyx Mega Shine Lip Gloss 'Tea Rose'//Revlon Ultimate Suede lipstick 'Woman swear//Bourjois Color Boost 'Red Sunrise.
Real Techniques Blush brush//stippling brush//Contour brush//Expert face brush.
So all in all I was pretty damm pleased with myself.

When Life Takes Over

Well I was shocked to see that it has been over a year sinc I last Posted on here, to be honest I had made the decision last year to take a couple of months break away from blogging just because I had a lot going on, and then the couple of months in no time turned into a year for no reason other than life took over!

Lots has happened in the year the main one being we've moved back from Manchester to Kent and still getting sorted etc. But slowly but surely I'm going to get back to blogging.

Essie 'Leading Lady '

When the Essie Winter 2012 Collection  came out just before Christmas there were two shades I had to get my hat my mitts on one being Butler Please which I managed to get very easily and the second being Leading Lady which proved harder than I thought and I didn't manage to get it before Christmas, then on Christmas Day in my stocking was a Mini Essie set which contained  Leading Lady yaaaay.

Can we first just stop and admire how beautiful this polish is OH MY GOD I have never had a nail polish like this before so was so happy for it to be added to my collection and put it on my nails Christmas Morning,I admit it took 3 coats to get it looking all nice and even but once I had a top coat on,look how shiny and glossy it is? Such a stunning finish which I love. Even my mum loves it and she is very plain when it comes to her nail polish.

Essie describe this as a supreme deep red with glitter but to be honest that doesn't even do this polish any justice, it is without my favourite polish in any winter collection, the glitter particles look amazing and not all chunky and un even, it's a very smooth polish, and unlike some polishes which have glitter in then it's a dream to remove and I had it on for 5 days before any signs of chipping appeared. I love it so much I had to rush out and buy myself a full sized bottle.

Did you try any from their winter collection? Do you own this polish? Thoughts?
