PopBeautyUK Permanent Pout Liquid Lipstick Review + Swatches*

*This post contains gifted products. 
A new brand to try...

It's been such a long time since I did a swatches post - or tried a new brand - so why not tick both boxes with these new lippies from PopBeautyUK? They have a whopping 6 new shades to add to their three existing fan favourites. A shade for everyone.  

Personally, I love Butter Babe, Plump Peach, Red Velvet and Razzle Rose. 

Butter babe is the perfect warm nude shade. I love a more subtle lip with a bold eye - and this is such a classic shade for this. 

Plump Peach is my ideal summertime peachy nude. This is the perfect peach for those warmer days where you aren't quite willing to go full hog on a bold peach/coral lip. 

Red velvet is the go-to shade for a bold lip to me. A deep, rich red seems to suit my pale skin beautifully. 

Finally, Razzle Rose is my favourite. I LOVE a dusky pinky nude shade which just seems to be the one for me. I will always go towards a shade like this for any occasion. Love it! 

There are fifteen shades to choose from in the range, and worth picking up if you fancy trying out a new formula or brand. There really is a shade for everyone here!

Which shade would you try first?

Another Year Over...

So, after last year's three advent calendars I had made the decision to only make my own this year. You can view that decision in the final thoughts from last January here.  So I did what last year Erin told me to do: I made another advent calendar.

A Lot of Favourites 

Yes, the mug really does have coffee in it. Multitasking. So, I thought I would share everything I have loved this year, everything from the very minimal amount of makeup I have used, the skincare which I have used lots of, and everything else which has caught my eye.

How is it the end of another year? 

The last month of the year, so it makes sense to share everything I have been loving the past month... 

Edinburgh Zoo: Lost Worlds #GiantLanterns

A Fun Family Day... 

Such an incredible day out at Edinburgh Zoo with the family - so I thought I would share the snaps. It was pretty incredible! The work and skill which must have gone into it is amazing - a joy to see. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area :) 

Cheesy RomCom Christmas Movies You Just NEED To Watch

Cheesy RomCom Christmas Movies You Just NEED To Watch, hallmark, prime, netflix, films,

Just in case you don't follow me on Twitter or Instagram... I REALLY love Christmas movies. Especially Rom Coms, and ESPECIALLY cheesy ones which make me doubt my single, empowering women status. The movies where boys are tough and girls "change" them. Oh, the shame. BUT,  I just cannot get enough of them - so here are my favourites. For me, there is a tickbox list of cheesy romcom boxes that must be ticked for me to be happiest. The best people at hitting all the right boxes for me is Hallmark - they are the experts on Cheesy Crap Movies.
