Illamasqua week (which yes has almost spanned 3 weeks now, it would have been a week if i posted my looks and reviews consectuively but, i'm me so that was not going to happen :P) is drawing to a close now, i only have 3 reviews left to post and will hopefully have at least 2 done today. I've really enjoyed doing it, but i want to know how you guys felt about it. If you liked seeing a whole lot of reviews and looks using only one companies products then i could do it again with other companies. The idea of it was meant to be a sort of guide to the brand for anyone who didn't know much about them before, or did but had been put off by the price or anything. But if you found it irritating in any way please tell me :)
In case anyone thought otherwise i'd just like to say that i am not in anyway affiliated with Illamasqua, i didn't recieve any of the products to review or anything like that, i just really adore the brand.
I was feeling really down yesterday and ended up being very very naughty and breaking my spending ban quite badly. I feel very ashamed of myself now but i just couldn't help it. I'm going to try to keep myself really really busy from now on and then hopefully i won't give myself a chance to buy anything else!
I'm not feeling down anymore though. Partly because I just woke up on the right side of the bed this morning, and it's been such a nice sunny day and my animals are all being beautiful and partly because, when ego-searching this morning, I discovered this little write up on my blog
'What I love about Lillian’s blog is her ingenuity and her drive to create something unique in a world that is so replete with same, same, same. Lillian’s makeup tutorials are full of innovative products, methods and combinations. No two looks are ever the same.
The best thing about Lillian, however, is her honesty. She shares very openly her struggles with social anxiety, her fears, and her frustrations with life. The way she writes is compelling and almost like a conversation. It’s absolutely addictive.'
Now i'm certain such praise is really not deserved but i just wanted to say that if whoever wrote this is reading this i can never thank you enough. It truly touched me from the bottom of my heart and has made me feel so wonderful. Word's can't really express how good it made me feel about myself, just knowing there are people who so much appreciate the nonsense i write :)
You may have noticed i've been quite sparse on the looks front recently, this is because i've been a bit low and staying indoors a lot so i don't tend to do a full face worth noting, but i want to do more, so hopefully i'll start showing at least 2 outfits and faces a week. Even if i'm just in all day i'll dress up for the fun :)
I'm also going to start working my way through the list of requests i have. I'm so useless, i ask you guys what you'd like to see and then when you tell me i ignore it for weeks! Shame on me.
Recently my puppy Sir Digby has started playing with my older dog Minnie. Minnie has never played before in her life and it has made us all so happy to see her rolling around being silly with Digby, she seems so much younger now.
