Exciting News and an Anniversary FOTD

Its been an exciting few days for me, and I'm sorry I've been a bit absent but its been a few days of celebrating.
Wednesday, as you may know, Dan and I celebrated our 4th anniversary. We had a really lovely day where I was treated to some lovely gifts and so was Dan (I haven't forgotten that I said I would show you!) we also ate fab chocolate, went for a delicious meal and rounded the day up by playing Lego Pirates of the Caribbean on the Wii :)

Thursday was a really big day for me. In the early afternoon I had a trial shift with LUSH for what would, lets face it, be my dream job. I had a really great time working on the shop floor, showing people how fab the bath bombs are and how fun shower jelly can be so I was completely over the moon when the shift ended and I was offered a job instantly, I didn't even have to sit down for an interview. I can't begin to tell you how happy I was to hear that I would be working for one of my favourite companies. In terms of blogging I hope that being employed by LUSH doesn't effect how people feel about any of my reviews of LUSH products. I will continue to write about them, and continue to be 100% honest as I always have been.

Considering yesterday all of this excitement with Lush took place, due to holiday and confusing circumstances, today was actually my last day at Debenhams. I hate leaving jobs, it feels so strange to be leaving the building and know you won't be behind the scenes there any more. I really enjoyed my stint in the restaurant there and all the staff were lovely but at least I'm leaving for exciting new things...and a three week holiday in Mallorca!

Phew, so wordy! So on to some photos of Wednesday nights makeup:
I decided to keep things nice and simple, smooth skin, light pinky blush and bold lips.
What I used:


  • Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid in 1WN2
  • Natural Collection sheer loose powder
  • MAC Fleet Fast blusher
  • LUSH Emotional Brilliance Feeling Younger skin tint
  • Bobbi Brown brow powder
  • Bobbi Brown pastel eyeshadow in baby pink
  • Max Factor false lash effect mascara
  • LUSH Emotional Brilliance Passionate lip colour
Wow, long post much! I've had the best few days, really looking forward to the future :)
