So I created a Youtube video, which is something I wouldn't be too keen on doing a while ago, but I thought why not? You can watch below! I hope you enjoy also. If you would like to see more - simply ask!

My skin has been confusing me lately. For years I thought I had oily skin but I've been wrong for the whole entire time. I've been sucking all the moisture out of my skin by using products specifically for oily skin, when really my skin is quite dry. I've worked out that because of the mattifying products my skin has been over compensating for the lack of moisture in bid to create more oil to help the skin.

I have been incredibly silly, I should of paid attention to the fact that when I wake up in the morning my skin isn't oily at all, even my T-Zone. I am happy enough to admit that I have been a fool in regards to paying attention to my skin, and it does have my sincere apologies.

My skin all over is sensitive and dry, I even have psoriasis on my scalp and my elbows which isn't pleasant to have. But in regards to my daily routine of looking after my skin on my face I use just three products! Which you can see above.

Products used;

L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Cleaning & Perfecting Milk

L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Velvety-soft Toner

Palmers Cocoa Butter Daily Calming Facial Lotion

Lately, my shopping has gotten out of hand. I'm being completely serious now, this is unsafe. I am skint! I don't regret it though as I have purchased some beautiful products. Above is a few of my favourites from my recent purchases.

So I have the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette but I have never purchased the first one. Seems silly as it looks pretty essential to have! I actually picked this up from Depop (which is an app that everyone needs to check out if you haven't already) already I have used this everyday and I am loving it.

Seconds up is the Naked Flushed Palette in Strip, I have been wanting this for so long! But I just haven't got round to it, and it is amazing. Each shade isn't over powering at all, they last all day long and give such a gorgeous glow. I picked this up from Beauty Bay in the sale, the sale price probably tempted me more, let's be honest.

Thirds up, the Naked Basics Palette 2!!! I love the first one, for an everyday look and it is compact so it easily fits in your make up bag. The shades are a little bit similar to the first palette but they still create a compeltely different look. Again purchased from Beauty Bay in the sale!

Elizabeth Arden, the first product I own - I have read good reviews about this mascara however it is £22.00 for a mascara! Yeah I was shocked too. I haven't yet tried it myself, but once I do I'm sure you'll hear of its good or bad news from me soon.

Soap & Glory Carbon Black Extreme Eyerliner Pen. This cost me £6.00 and it is the best eyeliner I have EVER used. This is not being dramatic at all. It really is carbon black too, not a faded black, it is true in its word. Let's not forget to admire their glorious packaging too.

Benefit Coralista Blusher - haven't yet tried this, but from swatches it creates a peachy glow which is what I am after. High hopes as their mascara is the best mascara I have tried.

Lastly, I have become tired of using my holy grail Sleek Eyebrow Kit and I noticed that Beauty Bay were selling Anstasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade - I got the shade Ash Brown as my Sleek Eyebrow Kit was too warm toned for me. If you're seeking a strong eyebrow game - then this is for you.

Well, this feels new. I have taken a break, only a 2 week break just to refresh my mind, recharge my creativity and let's be honest... this happens to all fellow bloggers - writers block? Lack of inspiration? It does hit us and sometimes there is an explanation for it, sometimes there isn't. But on the bright side, I thought I would share with you the pins I have been loving recently.

If you don't know already, I am obsessed with Pinterest and you definitely need to check out my boards and get pinning. It is a huge source of inspiration, and there is something on there for everyone. Whether you love art, fashion, make up, crafts, home interior... the list is endless! 

So far I have 26 boards that I have given quirky titles and 4,447 pins which is quite a lot!

Board; Painted Face 

Board; Second Skin

Board; Ocean
