This week I've been raiding my skincare drawer in search of help with hormonal blemishes. Usually when those pesky blighters pop up out come the big guns but as I've ran out of blemish treatments I've had to try a new approach.
So here are photos from MAC's upcoming summer collection - Alluring Aquatic. There's no official colour story as yet so I'll update when I find it. However, Alluring Aquatic is an extra dimension collection with teal packaging (the packaging also has water droplets on which I'm interested to see). More photos after the jump!
Tomorrow my blog is two years old - the last two years have gone so quickly and my lil blog has become somewhere I can escape to and enjoy my passion for all things beauty.
Thank you to who reads my musings and comments - I truly appreciate it. To celebrate my blog birthday, I have a small giveaway for you. One winner will win the Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm and Nuxe Youth and Radiance Revealing Care Fluid. To be in with a chance of winning just fill in the details in the form below. As usual the giveaway is open worldwide. Good Luck!

I used to be so envious of tanned girls. I still would love to have gorgeous naturally tanned skin but in reality its never gonna happen. I've learnt to embrace my paleness and luckily there's lots of products on the high street that can help me do just that.
Anti-ageing skincare is a massive market. Whilst I don't like the term 'anti-ageing' - a cream certainly isn't going to halt the ageing process and ya know I'm not sure how ageing is considered a bad thing. However, I do want to try and make my skin look the best it can.
I've mentioned this collection briefly in the past but I think it deserves its own post. The studio sculpt shade and line collection features eight powders and two brushes and launches in April US. All details below.

Word up!MAC's newest collaboration is with teen singer Lorde. The limited edition collection will be released later this year though no word as yet on how big/small the collection will be. I'm guessing this might be an Autumn/Winter launch due to lorde's love of vampy lips. I'm looking forward to seeing what it brings!
Just like having oily skin, oily hair is a bind. Dry shampoo becomes your best friend and there is the constant battle to find a great shampoo that will keep your hair looking as clean as possible.
This week has been all about the makeup. Usually during the week Ill just want to get my makeup on as quick as possible and do the minimal (I'm not a morning person) but this week I've really enjoyed spending time applying my makeup properly and adding a little extra than normal.
I wouldn't say I'm a massive fan of celebrity endorsements and hearing about Rita Ora's collaboration with rimmel didn't exactly spark my interest.
