No7 Blusher

Today I used the no7 voucher which I got from the No7 advent calendar and then I ensured that I could get a nice new powder blush. This one is called apricot and is a coral pink colour that I really like it. It blends really well on your cheeks and makes me look a lot more awake which I like a lot.

Murder most unladylike

This book is more aimed at an age range of 8-12. But I found myself really enchanted by the characters and I love murder mysteries it reminded me of Enid Bylton's writing and then also really liked the twists in it and I may have ordered the rest of the books in the series. So really I can recommend this is you know anyone else whose either a lot younger and would enjoy this sort of book, but also for any adults who want a quick easy read and feel nostalgic about the books they read as a child.

For my birthday I received a pair of Sony head phones which were a great present as I do a lot of travelling on public transport and there for it's really useful as my normal apple ear buds, don't block out other noise hence I had to put the volume up really high, so I'm glad I avoid that now and can hear the podcast or music I'm listening to easily.

Dear Stranger

This book I saw on BeckieJBrowns channel on youtube, and I thought I'd give it a go, I don't have any mental health problems but as everyone gets low moods I wanted to read this book about happiness. As transpires throughout the book happiness is subjective and no one can be happy all the time, it contains anecdotes, pictures, more personal stories and I loved it read it in two days and thought it was really interesting and made me mindful of things in my life and those that I loved. I think it a really good book for anyone to read and contains many thought provoking moments.

Smashbox Light it up!

Having owned this contour palette for three years now, I love it! so perfect and the shades are great for me. Can't fault it but the kit wouldn't work with anyone who has darker skin unfortunately.

I really liked the purple colour in this eyeshadow palette it was perfect and I real like the fact that it's could produce a varied looks and will be great for travelling. 

So far I've not tried any of the smash box lipsticks in bullet form so I thought this would be a good chance to try out several of the colours and I have to say they are really good the only issue is that it's slightly fiddly having to have a lip brush. But I love the shade range included in this.

The one Memory of Flora Banks

This book I love hands down. 

It's written in such a cool way as it's from flora's perspective and she can only remember things for an hour then she'll forget it and her memories will only be from before she was ten years old. It's indicated that there are things being kept from her and the book follows her journey to finding out what's going on and finding herself. It's really a great book and without giving away spoilers I think it's a perfect young adult book.
