It's been a long time since I've been able to sit and write up one of these post's and I'd forgotten how lovely it is to reflect on the nicer things in life. There's been times over the past few years where it's felt like slogging away wasn't really getting me anywhere but I've come to realise that sometimes you just have to take a step sideways and reflect on all the positive things that have been happening and know progress is about staying focused and positive. So here's a few things that have been keeping me upbeat over the last few months.

I'll admit I'm a little bit late to jump on the REN bandwagon, When a lot of other bloggers were raving about the products I was busy pretending that I had enough skincare products and didn't want to buy anymore for the foreseeable future. Once I was done lying to myself I took a little trip to the M and S Beauty Hall with a voucher kindly donated by the mother and picked up this little gem.

Time flies when you have a million and one things to do and not enough hours in the day. Seriously though, where have these past few weeks gone? How is it nearly Halloween? And why do I only have seventy three shopping days until Christmas? (Yes, I am that person with a Christmas Countdown on my phone all year round...) Whilst I get over my realisation that we're nearly halfway through October, Here are some link for you guys of posts that I've loved reading this week.

I first came across this shade a few years ago but I always overlooked it whenever I visited a store as I'm not really one for colourful eyeshadows, I'm definitely a neutral girl with eye makeup so I tend to avoid all of the green/blue shades at mac and for some reason I've been convinced since I was a kid that blue and green definitely do not work on blue eyes (probably made that up in my head after I had to do blue eyes/red lips for my first and last disastrous dance show when I was a kid, I fell over onstage while dressed as a rabbit and of course there's a video, I don't think I need to say anymore.) However after swatching this on a whim and realising that it's more of a khaki gold shade than a green I had to have it.

Hope you guys are all well, Life has been a bit hectic for me lately with moving back to Nottingham, my course restarting, working and of course trying to avoid all beauty blogs for fear of wanting to buy anything and everything makeup related that they post even though I am supposed to be a responsible grown up and therefore not allowed to spend my food shopping money on mascara...

I'm not really one for expensive foundations, don't get me wrong I've tried a handful that I've really liked but just not enough to repurchase. Except that is, for my beloved Chanel Pro Lumiere, which I couldn't repurchase as I had the perfect timing to go and fall in love with it just before it was discontinued which meant I could never buy another bottle, gutted doesn't cut it. So I've been keeping an eye out for any new Chanel Foundation launches and I got this a few days after it was released back in April and I have to say I like it, In fact, I like it a lot.

Sometimes I think the best think for everyone is to take a little bit of a time out. The majority of people who meet me think I'm very calm and relaxed person, which couldn't be further from the truth. So you see the writing on that jumper up there, It's all a big lie. Basically I don't do duvet days, In fact my mum laughed at me when I bought this because I'm really bad at relaxing. I'm one of those people who can sit and stress and turn the smallest issue into Mt.Everest within an hour and I always need something to be getting on with. I can just about get it together to sit and read a good book but even then I have to keep putting it down to go and bounce about the house and find something else to do. If I'm not at college every weekday or working at the weekends I fill my days off up so I'm always out and about somewhere or getting through my daily to do list that never seems to end. Though sometimes it all gets a bit much and I feel the need to take a bit of time on my own to recharge by binge watching America's Next Top Model and The Bake Off (the two don't go hand in hand I know), drink coffee and eat my body weight in Veggie Percy Pigs which I need to tell you all are better than the originals in case it sways you next time you make a purchase. I failed slightly at the duvet day as I popped to town in the morning but I made up for it with a nice long shower and a massive pampering session later on.
What do you like to do to relax and take some time away from the world?

The answer to that question is of course, No, I don't need one, mainly because they aren't a winter coat and I can't even justify it with saying that one would be good for autumn as they aren't waterproof and here in Britain that is a A/W necessity really. However, even after all that, the answer to do I want a Duster coat? Is a resolute, Yes. So I thought I would share with you my top picks of trans seasonal coats that I do not need and will not be buying but are still oh so pretty.

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Fatigue Blur RRP £7.99
I wasn't a huge fan of the original Baby Skin Primer, I like a dewy foundation and as a mattifying primer it obviously doesn't work in that respect. However as I am one of those people who has to find something to do every hour of every day or I don't know what to with myself I have tired, dull skin 99.9% of the time, so I thought this might just work out for me and you know what, it does...sometimes.

Tshirt Primark | Shorts Zara | Shoes Primark
Last week my mum and I decided to take advantage of the sunny weather and go for a wander round the park and of course stop for cake. I got the chance to wear my Zara shorts that I mentioned a few posts ago and my new favourite shoes. I was all set to buy the Topshop pair I mentioned in my wishlist last week but then I saw these in Primark for only £7 so I couldn't resist a good bargain.
