I am on a night shift tonight, so tomorrow I will be very tired but will try my best to fight through it for the kids:) At least I'm not working on Christmas Day this year. I'm not sure when I'll get back to my blog so I hope you get everything you want and have a lovely day, whatever you are doing.
Thanks to everyone who reads, comments on and follows my blog. You make me so happy:) Here's to more followers in the new year:)

The fact that I regularly lie in it too long in the mornings and have no time for make up!!
Fresh, clean hair.
Smooth, moisturised skin on my body.
Actually applying the moisturiser!!
Note the fact that all these love/hates focus on my lazy side lol:)

This is another book I borrowed from the library. For me it's case of try before you buy. In this instance I am going to buy this book for myself. It's a truly great book with lots of beautiful pictures and lots of step by step make up looks.
I am a sucker for beautiful pictures in make up books and this book certainly delivers that. Aucoin makes up many many people in this book, most of whom are famous and there are also some unknown but extremely beautiful faces in there too. His mother also features in this book.
There are many every day looks and smoky eye looks but there are also very different make up looks such as Cleopatra, Mary Queen of Scots, Madame Butterfly and Elizabeth I.
Whether you are new to make up or a seasoned user you will love this book. It's well laid out, full of colour and easy to follow.
Aucoin makes up many different types of people in this book, from young to not so young and covering many different skin tones. There really is something for everyone in this book.
One of my favourite pictures is of 3 very beautiful women, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jody Foster and Meg Ryan all wearing the same make up. This was done for Vanity Fair and it's interesting to see how they all look with the same make up.
This book gets a huge thumbs up from me:)

Well it's actually the look of Monday night but lets not split hairs. I have been feeling a bit under the weather since then and that's why this is only going up now.
Monday night was our work's Christmas night out (well one of them anyway) and we went to a chinese for a meal and a few drinks. A lovely night was had by all. The food was delicious and so were the beers:)
Here's the breakdown of my outfit:
Top - Next
Skirt - Next
Tights - Next
Belt - Next
I felt very comfortable in this outfit. The boots are quite flat so my feet thanked me for that:)

When the wind blows my hair into it lol:)
These are just a few. I have lots more to share in a future post. So what are your love/hate relationships with make up and beauty products? Or anything else you may have a love/hate relationship with xx

It's peeing down outside and it's so cold here I decided to treat my toes to a little something. These caught my eye this morning in Marks and Spencer. I hate when my feet are cold and I thought these would be excellent at keeping my little tootsies warm. I was absolutely right of course;) My toes are loving me now. These slippers feel like heaven when you put them on. They are extremely comfortable and so cosy.
These cost me £12. I love Marks and Spencer!!
