Whilst I’ve not been buying a whole lot of makeup recently (let’s be honest, all my money is going on theatre tickets), in December I did treat myself to some new bits in the Boxing Day sales – and the pre-Christmas sales – as well as getting a couple of products for Christmas. I’m finally getting around to sharing these goodies so that I can finally review them for you in the coming weeks. This is also my last new in my makeup stash type post that will include non-cruelty free products that I’ll have bought for myself as I went CF with my beauty buys this year.
Every few months I have a cull of who I’m following on social media. I know this is a little suspect of late as people think that it’s playing the follow/unfollow game. Or making it look like we’re boosting our follower count in comparison to who we follow (it’s much impressive to see someone follow 500 people with 5000 followers as opposed to following 4000 people with 5000 followers). But there’s a reason that I no longer feel guilty for unfollowing people.
I allocate 10 minutes each morning to do my makeup for work, and I have got it down to a pretty speedy 7. But this doesn’t allow much opportunity to play around with makeup in the morning. I’m obviously not going to rock up in the highest coverage foundation, double wings and bright blue lipstick, but I’m making it my aim to switch up the my lips but better shades I wear on a daily basis.
When I took my last theatre trip earlier in the month, there were a few things that I noticed that I didn’t like about attending a show. And by that, I mean things that other people were doing. There are a number of bad theatre habits that a minority of audience members have picked up in recent years and I think it’s time to discuss my theatre pet-peeves.
Last year I put together a monster post all about what I’d picked up in the Boxing Day sales, and I’m doing it again this year! I don’t think I spent quite so much, but I did pick up some bits I want to share with you. In my 2018 goals, I mentioned that I am going cruelty free with my beauty products and not all of these are, but this is the last time I will be sharing non-CF purchases on my blog in a haul fashion. Sorry it’s taken so long (again), but I had to wait for Mr Postman to bring most of this to me!
