Pip showed us around the collection as soon as we arrived, and I was so in love with it. Seeing such lovely pastel colours on a dreary London night was really rather lovely, and got me quite excited for the spring and summer time! The collection is everything spring makeup should be in my mind; pretty pastel hues and illuminating products. I likey.
My fun bag of freebies contained the Five Colour Eyeshadow Palette, Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum and Nail Lacquer in shade Insatiable. I wont lie and say I've used each meticulously and can recommend them because I simply haven't had the time - but I have had a good little play and the eyeshadows are really pigmented (bar maybe the light pink which is more focused on illuminating), the nail polish a beautiful, opaque grey-purple shade and the serum my mummy really rather likes.
What do you think? Will you be giving this collection a try?
- Have had another busy few weeks, but rather exciting weeks they have been too. Case in point; the above photo was taken at the River Island Press Night - drinking cocktails out of hollowed pineapples is pleasing, I must say.
- Finally the first one of the magazines I've been working on is in print! It's hard to explain, but I feel like it's my little baby and I don't want to put it out to the public for fear of criticism. That said, I'm really chuffed with how it looks and reads and I feel really proud. Yay for intrinsic job satisfaction!
- Managed to get into the university of my choice for next year which I'm both extremely happy and extremely nervous about. On the one hand, it is a world-renowned university, but on the other hand, I will be living at home in the first year, so I feel like I'll miss out a little on the whole 'uni' experience. Have to keep reminding myself to look at it as a 'glass half full' situation, which I normally do, but I admit I am finding this a little hard.
Have any of you guys done uni from home? I'm hoping it'll only be for the first year and the commute is under an hour. Let me know your thoughts please!
Hours have increased at work and I literally don't see sunlight at the moment. 7 days a week and no social occasions is basically my life at the moment. I.e. I can't take any pictures. It's so annoying because there are so many things I want to show you but I don't have any time to take any snaps, never mind lighting!
I'm going to try and take lots and lots on a Sunday morning so I can write it all on week nights!
Thank you for keeping with following me - I promise content will be coming back very soon.

I was after easy jeans for so long, but just couldn't part with £70, and I'm a little bit glad I waited right now. These are so similar, and most people actually seem to prefer them.
As I've had them for a while, I thought I'd show you how I've been wearing them. Sincere apologies about crappy lighting.
Hope you liked!
