It is finally the last day of January, it has been such a slow month! Having the five weeks until payday really made the month go super slow. I want to start sharing how each month went and what I got up to. I am quite glad January is over as I have some exciting things coming up but for now it is time to share what happened this month. January has been extremely cold and stormy for the majority of the month but a few things happened. Some good, some not so great but hey ho lets share.

contour products for pale skin tones

Contouring is something I really enjoy, it is one of my favourite parts of my makeup routine. It is something I always include in my daily makeup routine. I find it makes my face shape look so much better and brings my whole makeup alive. Whether it is powder or cream contour I love both and find both easy to work with. It all comes down to using the right tools. I wanted to share my top four products from drugstore to high end.

NARS Velvet Lip Glide Stripped Review

You know that feeling when you have wanted a product for months and each time you have gone to order it, it has been out of stock? Yeah that was me thanks to Courtney. Ever since she raved about it, I knew I needed it. The NARS Velvet Lip Glides have been a product on my wishlist for quite sometime. NARS is a brand I haven only tried foundations and concealers from but this year I really want to try more from them. I am completely over the matte lip trend.

This year I want to do alot more and I want to make more effort to enjoy things and not waste time. The past few years I haven't been able to do much due to health reasons but this year I want to try new things. Yes my health isn't the best but I'm not going to let it stop me. Planning something gives you something to look forward to and makes you feel good. I have put together a list of what I want to do so I can look back at it like a check list and then at the end of the year see if I did everything I want to.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette Dupe

One of the most talked about palettes on 2017 and here we are with what might be a dupe some say? A dupe isn't a product that just looks the same, it has to have the same quality otherwise it is just a cheaper alternative not a dupe. Everyone loves a bargain but you still want a good quality product. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette is such a unique palette with a new mix of shades unlike any other palette but it has come with it's criticism. I for one love the palette but there is a "dupe" that is £30.05 cheaper than the original. The question is... Is it worth it?

Lime Crime Pocket Candy Eyeshadow Palette Review
If you are a 90s kid this packaging will bring back plenty of memories for you! If you remember Polly Pockets you were a kid in the right era. I was obsessed with them and when I saw Limecrime were releasing 3 Pocket Candy Eyeshadow Palettes I was super excited. To be honest I think I was more excited about the packaging than the shades at first. This collaboration is so cute and the three palettes available are gorgeous.

makeup flatlay, blog tips

The last 6 months of 2017 were extremely hard for me. As many of you know for 3 years I was housebound after reconstruction surgery and the recovery took a long time. I finally started a full time job in August which I really enjoy. I got diagnosed with a Chronic Illness which I was glad to finally know what was going on but at the same time I took it hard. My blog hasn't been as enjoyable for a while and I have needed to re think alot of things.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio Peachy Love
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio's have been on my wishlist ever since they were released and I finally purchased one!I don't tend to own many high end blushers as I have always found drugstore ones to work well but these trio's really stood out to me and they looked perfect for travelling with. Anastasia Beverly Hills now has their own UK website which makes it so much easier to buy their products.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream

My first product from Neutrogena was the Visibly Clear CC Cream which I absolutely love. A good few months ago I noticed they had released the Hydro Boost range, it really stood out from the shelf with everything being a bright blue. I picked up two products from the range and have been testing them both for some time now. My skin is in need of hydration lately, the weather has definitely impacted my skin massively.

Social Media is something I really used to enjoy, especially Twitter but it has definitely changed. Of course there has been alot of blogger drama and arguments but that isn't what annoys me or makes me love it less as I ignore the drama and get on with my own stuff. Lately it seems Twitter has become a huge whingefest! I am not talking about us whinging about our daily lives, as we all do that haha but whinging about what others do.

Too Faced Primed and Peachy Primer Review

I finally got my hands on some products from the Too Faced Peaches and Cream Collection. If you didn't know there is now a Too Faced store in London on Carnaby Street and they are selling the whole Peaches and Cream range. You can also now order the range from the Too Faced Website and the Sephora Website to the UK, they add all customs/taxes at checkout so you won't get any surprises when your parcel arrives. I picked up four items from the range including the Primed and Peachy Primer, Peach Perfect Foundation, Peach Mattifying Setting Spray and the Sweetie Pie Bronzer.

makeup flatlay, best of beauty 2017

I know we all say this every year but I am sure each year flies by quicker! I can't believe we are in 2018 already. It was really each to put together my favourite beauty finds of 2018 and actually most of them are drugstore! The drugstore released so many new products this year and I have fallen in love with so many of them. I did fall in love with quite alot of products during December which I haven't included as I want to test them out for longer before confessing my love for them!

Fashion Haul

It has been a while since I have been on a shopping trip and managed to find things I like. Since I had my surgery on my neck I hate buying clothes as I will only buy things that will cover my neck and most clothes are lower cut. This is the first shopping trip in a while I have found quite a few clothing items I loved. I managed to get a few items in the sales and some were normal price but I picked up a good mixture.

Looking back at 2017 it was a good year blogging for me. I had a rebrand from EmmysBeautyCave to EmmyWritesAbout so I can introduce more baking, lifestyle and the odd fashion post as well as keeping it mainly beauty. I have made so many more blogging friends this year and become close with many of them. I have cut back a little on social media due to now working full time but I am still posting as often on my blog which I am happy about. It is time look back at the goals I set this time and last and to set new ones!
