"Totes Amazeballs!"

I love getting mail! It's always exciting when you go to the mail box and find letters or see parcels stacked up outside your front door. You can't help that feeling of wonder and surprise if it was an unexpected delivery and you didn't know someone had sent you something. Even if you did know it was coming, you often let out a squeal of joy that it finally arrived. Ok...so that might just be me! :p But I'm very old fashioned and adore getting letters and packages via owl post rather than via email, so much so that this week, I must admit, I did a tiny bit of online shopping just so I could look forward to checking the mail after the long days at work! :p It just so happens that all my parcels had one thing in common...

Makeup! :)

I've thoroughly been enjoying my recent makeup obsession and have been having so much fun watching Jaclyn Hill and Nicole Guerriero videos, they are still my favourites, and I had a blast back home learning from Abi during our photo-shoot. It's been great to change up my look from that of my wrestling days and keep to a more natural style, while still feeling fresh and confident each day when I get up and ready to take on the world. I have been trying to experiment a bit more too, so this week I ordered a few recommendations that I thought I would share! :)

Makeup Geek! :)
I have watched so many video's now and love the looks that both Jaclyn Hill and Nicole Guerriero have done with these shadows. I'm not usually big on doing my eyes up nowadays, as I used to do tons of black for wrestling shows, not knowing how to do anything else, and after I just got lazy and thought nothing but black would suit me, but when I saw them doing the simplest of looks with one or two shadows, looks that just made your eyes pop and look so pretty, I thought it was about time to give it a go. I got the shades Mango Tango, Peach smoothie, Beaches and cream and Crème brulee to start off my collection. I have seen some Makeup geek pigments too that I have added to my wish list as they are gorgeous. :)
Jaclyn Hill's Sigma Brush Kit! :)
Well, to do all the beautiful eye looks I needed some eye brushes! :p I thought this set was great value for money and I even had a 10% discount code which was a bonus! I had been wanting to get some blending brushes and basic tools to do a lot of the looks I had been watching, so I thought this was the perfect treat. I actually bought the F80 and F86 brushes a while back and have been using them non stop since then. I think they are awesome and I had wanted to get them for my sister Kelly, so again this just worked out perfect! :)
OCC Nail Polish- Pool Boy! :)
My favourite colour is blue and when I saw Jaclyn Hill wearing this polish in one of her recent videos, I was like, I must find it! :p I can't explain it but there is just something beautiful about this blue, it is the absolute perfect blue. I looked at all the different nail polish in the stores before finally settling on having to order this one online from Sephora, as I could not find one that remotely came close to it. The minute it came in the mail, I sat down and did my nails. It is gorgeous and so bright and happy. I think I am going to be wearing this everyday throughout Spring and Summer! :)
First Aid Beauty. Ultra Repair Cream! :)
I had heard about this in a lot of beauty hauls and having recently been dealing with very dry skin, I really wanted to try it. However, I didn't want to go out and buy the big bottle incase in didn't react well with my skin. I mentioned before that due to my amazing Mum, I have been wearing Oil of Olay for the past 15 plus years and often get nervous about changing it up. But when I went online I found that Sephora were offering this as a free sample with purchases, so I jumped at the chance to try it when I ordered my nail polish. I usually use my Josie Maran Argan oil at night but with my skin being really dry lately I thought I would try this after washing my face instead. At first it felt a tiny bit tingly but after putting it on another three times over the past two days, I don't get that anymore. It feels lovely and soothing and soft and I have seen a difference in my skin. I still get a little dry skin throughout the day and of course after washing my face, but this seems to be calmly it. I definitely think I will be investing in the big bottle now! :)
