Festive FOTD and Fun times :)

It's the first time that I have had the house to myself in about 5 days, the boys are off playing laser tag and I wasn't invited! Boo hoo, naaahht! Im happy sitting here in silence drinking tea, eating mince pies and tapping away to you guys!

Since I have mainly been surrounded by boys for the past week the first topic that I want to talk about is Make-up!! Daz very kindly bought me the Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette (which luckily for me Gem was selling) for Xmas! It arrived a few days before Christmas day, and as much as part of me would love to keep it in pristine condition forever, I can't help but be a greedy l'il make-up whore want to wear all of the pretty colours so that's what I did!
Also I discovered a couple of product combinations that work really well (foundation and lips) it was like a mini Christmas present from me to me ;) I will be popping up posts on both shortly.

Festive FOTD

Foundation- Revlon Photo ready + Jemma Kidd Light as air
Blushbenefit Coralista
Highlight- Vivo cosmetics baked bronzer (shade 3)
