NYC Crystal Couture Nail Polish in Ruby Queen: Review and Swatches

My Christmas nail polish of choice this year is this little beauty from NYC. For the bargain price of £1.99 I thought I'd give it a go rather than Barry M's glitter offerings which were £2 more, and I'm glad I did!

Under £5: Last Minute Bargain Beauty Stocking Fillers



Loads of shops have some great beauty bargain at the minute, so perfect for those last minute stocking fillers or pre-Christmas treats. Superdrug especially has lots of branded products discounted so worth a look if you're on a budget!

Review: Rimmel Kate Scandaleyes Rockin' Curves Mascara in Jet Black

I was quite surprised when this popped through my letterbox with no information inside to why I had received it. After some thought I think I had entered a Rimmel giveaway on Facebook, which they have frequently on their new products so definitely worth entering. Anyway, I hadn't tried a Rimmel mascara since their Sexy Curves variety so it was nice to step away from my usual Maybelline mascaras.

Turning Over a New Leaf: Back to Blogging

This time last year I was settled into my Master's degree and feeling overwhelmed by the amount of work I had coming my way. Sadly blogging took a backseat, as a consequence of postgraduate workload and also my lack of interest in blogging, When I look back now I see that I was too preoccupied by the idea of creating a blog just like the popular ones I read and being overly critical of what my blog was. For me, beginning blogging was a way to participate in the online culture of which I was part of the audience and also to write about my interests; my little own corner of the Internet. Creating a blog was never about popularity or the benefits which seem to run alongside having a successful blog currently. Therefore in beginning to blog again I have to remind myself to focus on my own outputs and not constantly comparing these with others, however I acknowledge this is one of my downfalls in life!

In short, I am going to begin writing for this blog again. As before I aim to post reviews of beauty products with swatches if necessary because this is what I enjoy as a reader, alongside content relating to my other interests such as television and reading.
