Sephora Haulin’ August 2015

sephora haul august 2015

This year I’ve made a point to try and work through the makeup I own (which is definitely more than any one person needs) in a bid to downsize my collection. Would you believe I haven't actually bought anything makeup-wise since last year? It has now gotten to that time though, when I’ve started to run out of certain products. I’ve been on my last scraps of mascara, liquid eyeliner and foundation for a while so took the opportunity to justify a Sephora order. First up is the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation ($36), a firm favourite of mine for a good year now. I chose to go with this product again as it’s lightweight and will be perfect over sunscreen during my trip to Florida this September. Heck, i think most of my purchases have been inspired by Florida, which leads me onto my next purchase. Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen SPF50 ($19) has been recommended to me by Florida locals as a great facial sunscreen that's great to use under makeup and wont leave me looking like a greasy sticky mess. Lets hope it lives up to that! Next up is another Tarte product, the Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara ($21). I’ve heard a lot about this online and have been dying to give it a try. I chose the waterproof version as a preference and that way its sure to stand up to the daily Florida downpours. The Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper ($19) is something else I have heard good things about online, I’ve especially been intrigued by its staying power. Occasionally my eyes like to water in the corners and it always smudges any liquid liners I’m wearing into a big mess, so something with a little extra staying power is much needed. Speaking of Kat Von D, I couldn't order from Sephora without trying one of her Studded Kiss Lipsticks ($21), with me opting to go for the shades Lolita and Vampira. I’m a big lipstick person so I’m really hoping these live up to my expectations. Finally is a little birthday freebie I got as I ordered in my birthday month. I got a double pack of NARS lipsticks, a Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella and a Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien. I’ve actually been eyeing these NARS lip pencils up for a while so am thrilled to be able to try them.

I really do love shopping at Sephora, it has such an amazing range of products and stocks some of my favourite brands which we cant really get over here in the UK. All of these brands mentioned are Cruelty Free and from what I have tried of these products so far, I am dying to get my hands on more of their ranges.

What are your favourite Kat Von D or Tarte products?

25 Things Before 25

25 things before 25

So today I turn 24, which is kind of scary and I am so not ready for it. I feel like up until now I have been drifting through life with no real direction, which I guess is what you do when you’re young, yet I feel like I’ve barely accomplished anything. This past year has probably been the most “adult” year so far for me, getting my first full time job and going on my first business trip. Craig, my boyfriend, has landed himself a graduate accountant job and we are looking at moving into our own place after Christmas. Exciting!
After seeing this kind of thing floating around I thought I would write a list of 25 things I would like to do before I turn 25

1. Start a ‘big girl’ savings account.
2. Get a promotion at work to become salaried staff.
3. Move into my own place with the boyfriend.
4. Spend more time being creative and learning to use my sewing machine.
5. Learn more about creating content on YouTube, from editing to the filming process.
6. Gain 3000 subscribers on my channel.
7. Find a direction with my blog.
8. Rediscover my passion for photography, somehow its gotten lost along the way.
9. Go to more concerts and see more shows.
10. Stop comparing myself.
11. Become more creative in the kitchen.
12. Join some sort of sports club or activity.
13. Learn a new language to a conversational level.
14. Visit a country I’ve never been before.
15. Have a clear out – I own way too much stuff.
16. Connect with family. I barely talk to my extended family, that needs to change.
17. Pass my driving test.
18. Get a tattoo.
19. Write an open letter to my future 35 year old self.
20. Watch every single Disney film, both classic and live action.
21. Book a trip to Japan.
22. Invest in a new DSLR.
23. Get involved with animal charities.
24. ‘Organize’ my memories. I want to start scrapbooks or the like, to put all of my memory bits in.
25. Let the bad things go.

Do you have any sort of bucket list?
