Firstly I want to start this post by saying thank you to anyone who has ever followed my blog, commented or just dipped into it now and then.
Unfortunately I, like the title suggests, will no longer be blogging/posting. As much as I totally love the blogging world other career priorities are just taking over and they need to come first.
I’m finding myself with less and less time to do any blogging what so ever, reading or posting. I don’t want to be updating just once a month or leave it to frizzle out so I thought I would give thanks to you folks and say cheerio.
I will be keeping the page open in the hope that I will still have some time in the future to pop on and read what everyone has been up to.
So happy cosmetic adventures to you guys. It’s been great.

I have to ask, as I’ve been doing this waaaay too often recently. Do you guys ever FOTD forget? You play with your make up stash, you like the look you did enough to grab a few snaps for future blogging. Then when you finally get around to having some net time to post said images you have totally forgot what products you’ve used. I’m doing this so much of late. In fairness it can also be argued that it is silly to have so many products that you could easily not know which gold eyeshadow you used! Tee hee.
So do you do this? Hopefully I’m not alone here and it’s not just another sign of getting old!
So I’m thinking from now on I am going to have to snap the cosmetic sitting on my table before I put them away to remind me what the hell I used.
So on that note here’s a forgotten FOTD. It's um..purple?

I borrowed this idea from the lovely Computergirl's Musings (with her permission, go check her out if you aren't already following her).
Some folks pop URLS in my comments from time to time, sometimes I have a problem getting on to their page or profile. So if you can post a link in the comments here I will go have a look see and follow you.
My time online is limited but I do try and get on Blogger as much as I can. I miss it when I haven't been on in a while, yes make up addicted and blog addicted! So I will try to stop by as many blogs as I can and leave a comment. I know it's always lovely to get a little message saying you have a comment waiting.
I love finding new blogs and folks to get make up crazy with.
So if you can post a link and a couple of sentences just telling me a bit about yourself that would be grand. I look forward to reading your stuff.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

As you may already know from previous posts I'm new the world of Twilight. I'm almost finished the second book (although I've seen all 3 movies). I'm also learning to crochet and knit, once again repeating myself I know. Sorry.
So I'm combining the both. There are plenty of Twilight inspired knitting patterns out there and there are a good few many I want to try once my skills pick up. Any way here are two pairs of "Alice Mitts" that I have recently knitted. I'm pretty pleased with them.
Inspired by all things vampy I decided to do a red eye the other day. I haven't really used my Circus Sleek palette as I wasn't overly keen on it but the pink and red were calling me. Everything else I kept super pale as you can see. I would certainly use these colours again. Red on the eyes always feels a little different as not many people use it. In certain lights it also looked a bit purple IMO.
Hope you are all doing well.
Oh and while on a vampire topic any True Blood fans out there, loving season 3!

Hey there peeps
Just a quick post today. I’ve not been well of late, I’m sick of saying that. I have this flu/cold/stomach bug which won’t seem to shift. I’ve just had a sleep and still feel rough. But anyway, feeling sorry for myself aside, I thought I would post a quick FOT(other)D.
I had been wearing bright colours the day before so decided to go totally for nudes. On my eyes I used my Kat Von D Ludwig palette, Bobbi Brown creamy concealer and Maybelline Define-A-Lash mascara. For the lips I used an Illamasqua Lipstick in Bitch. It was kinda nice to go “bare” for a change.
Oh and sorry for me looking so torn faced in the photos, it was the only decent photo I got as I only had a quiet sec to get snapping.
I'll hopefully be back to normal soon and get posting some more.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a little while. I’ve had some time off work so I have been out and about doing things and just generally chilling out with family and Mr E. It’s been lovely.
I’ve had a couple of little spends of late (which I will post about) but before I forget I just wanted to recap on the matte colours I wanted as a brow highlight (see previous post) and show you this little booty.
Firstly the winner for me and absolute perfect colour is a Relvon Matte shade in 001 - Vintage Lace. I love it. I bought a couple of these matte shades when I was in the states and wasn’t overly impressed but certainly good for the price. This literally just caught my eye in Superdrug and I am over the moon that it did. Affordable, the ideal colour and matte, what more can I ask for?
Secondly is the MUA colours. Now for a £1 I can’t really expect a hell of a lot but to be honest I would rather save up my pounds and get something better. For example the Sleek palettes are only £5.99 for several colours and are of better quality IMO. I bought shade 6 and 17. A green and biege. The biege doesn’t really do anything. I may use it in the crease if I wanted a natural looking contour but it would probably require several layers. The green I used in a recent FOTD and you can see in the photos that it has already started to crease - and that was with a lot of blending and a base underneath. It does have a nice sheer quality which I sorted liked but not enough to keep using it on a regular basis.
Lastly I bought a couple of cheap brushes. Both around £3 I think. Now I don’t have piles of cash so my brushes tend to be cheap to mid range (ELF brushes etc). The QVS brush I really like and have a few of these. I like the size for placing the colour and they wash well. The Superdrug brush was a new buy and a bit of a waste. Waaaaay to stiff to be a blending brush but I will use it for something no doubt.
Also just wanted to say that I have noticed that I am creeping up to the 250 followers mark. Once I do hit that magic number I will have another wee give away. Going to try and make something again for this one plus a bit of MU obviously. Just wanted to say a huge thanks to my followers and to anyone taking time out to read my scribbles.
More posts soon I promise.
Have a great weekend !
