After recently cutting my hair short again I've been obsessed with trying to find new ways to style it and keep things different rather than slipping back into a boring every day routine. That was when I found the Fudge Sea Salt Spray, it adds a subtle beachy texture to the hair and brushes out perfectly at the end of the day. It smells amazing and is so easy to apply, either blow dry it into damp hair or spritz a little bit on the end for some last minute texture. I really wanted to try the Bumble & Bumble one but I can't justify spending that amount of money on a hair product. So for £6.99 for this bad boy I couldn't say no.

Don't forget there's still time to enter my RayBan giveaway, entries must be before midnight on January 31st!

I posted a picture on Instagram a couple of weeks ago deciding to give liquid eyeliner another go. After multiple failed attempts in my early teens, I looked like I had applied it with no fingers - so the thought of trying it again has always been daunting (sad I know).. I got my hands on the Rimmel Scandaleyes liner, with the choice of a thick and thin line using its angled nib. I thought at first this would be great but maintaining the thickness is a nightmare! One of my friends tried it on me and it turned out fantastic so maybe its just my crap technique? I refuse to give up on this eyeliner, so fingers crossed I can up my game!

One of my aims for 2015 was to get my hands on some new make up brands and on a recent visit to London I popped into the Westfield shopping center and was instantly drawn to Kiko. I've heard so many good things about them in the blogger world, and how the quality of their products is so high for such reasonable prices, so I thought I would try out a couple of bits.

Firstly the concealer, If you're looking for a creamy high coverage concealer then this is the one. Its incredible coverage makes it perfect for hiding blemishes but its not ideal for under the eyes, unfortunately it creased even when I buffed it in with a brush. They have a huge range of colours for every skin tone and might even be ideal for contouring! And for £7.50 how can you say no?

Finally, the shadow stick in shade 06. Im not joking when I say this stuff stays on forever. It doesn't budge. I swatched it for this post 8 hours ago and it's yet to wash off my hand! It has a great colour pay off and is really easily blended with a fluffy brush, my current favourite is this blending brush from Nanshy.

Don't forget my RayBan giveaway is now open until the end of the month so get entering!

Im sure I wasn't the only one that literally spent hours browsing the ASOS sale in the New Year, and I was reluctant to spend loads just because things were discounted. Until I found these amaaaazing Truffle pointed ankle boots. They are by far the comfiest boots I have ever worn and have required absolutely no breaking in, which if you've been reading this blog for a looonng time you'll know this is a dream come true in my books!

There's still so many ankle boots I want from ASOS but there would be no more room for Spring/Summer shoes in my bedroom! Did you get your hands on any pieces from the sales?

I always see Rhiannon from FRMS talking about how much she loves D`fluff , and on a recent trip to Lush I couldn't help but go see what they had to offer. I didn't really like the smell of D`fluff, buttttt Prince however smells divine. It is meant for men but I cant imagine there being much difference between this and the womens version. If anything, this should be better for your skin as its meant for use on a mans face rather than his legs (that would be odd).. It works wonders and leaves my legs feeling silky smooth, what else do you need?

What are your thoughts on using mens products instead of womens? Also there's still time to enter my Rayban giveaway here.

I cant believe this is my 100th post, a big thank you to everyone that has been reading and following my blog since day one and to those who have come across my space on the internet for the first time today.

Blogging has made me so much more confident in my day to day life and I dont think anyone quite understands that - apart from other bloggers. Ive had the chance to work with some amazing companies and meet some fab people and I wouldn't have been able to do that before.

Stay up to date with me on Instagram and dont forget to enter my Rayban giveaway, its open until January the 20th!

So as of yesterday my work has shut for a refurb, and after our staff party last night I now find myself on the sofa in fuzzy, hungover state sharing with you some of my resolutions for the New Year.

Look after myself
I know everyone says they want to eat better or lose weight in the new year and I do, but I also aim to eat properly and get a realistic amount of sleep in 2015. Working shifts is hard enough but combining it with bad health habits just makes me unwell.

Start running
Thanks to Anna from VDM Ive been wanting to get into running for ages, I want to get all the right clothing and equipment to whip myself into shape.

Make plans in advance
2014 made me realize how easy it is for the months to slip by literally without doing anything but work, eat and sleep. This year I plan to have something planned for every month. Be it a weekend away, a blogger event, a holiday (hint hint to the boyfriend if youre reading) or even booking a table to try a new restaurant.

Get my own camera
For nearly a year Ive been blogging I have used my mums partners camera, of which I am hugely grateful for but its definitely time to fork out and buy my own. Ive always appreciated good quality photography and this year I want to have my own and take it everywhere. If you have any relatively affordable ideas leave them in the comments.

My blog has been a slow and steady project for me over the past 11 months but I absolutely love it and the people that Ive been able to meet. I don't have any mile stones for my blog but the more of you I interact with the longer I will continue to paste my thoughts over the internet.

Theres still a while to enter my Rayban giveaway, enter here.

Ive always been a high street make up kinda gal, dabbling in Benefit now and then and always relying on MAC for concealer and lipsticks but Ive set myself an aim to try more luxurious brands in 2015. After being brain washed by other bloggers I am desperate to get my hands on some bits and bobs from the likes of Charlotte Tilbury, Nars, and Bobbi Brown.

Can you recommend any products from these brands? Don't forget to enter my Rayban giveaway!
