If you follow me on social media you would know I spent the first few days of 2017 struck down with the horrible flu/virus/cough that is going around and i've only just about recovered. during the time I was ill I didn't really do much with my hair or makeup but there was a few products that I used that helped me feel a little more human.

I guess I'm sad but one of the things I love about Christmas is the sales after (or before as they now tend to start) and I go shopping every year normally on the 27th. This year I even popped to my local town on Boxing Day to check out the sales in store, and to try and hunt down some Lush sales bits but the store was completely empty even when I got there at 11am. I haven't included the clothes I bought in the sales and have instead included the beauty products I picked up, mainly from Space NK as they had such good deals.

There is nothing I love more than a brand new lipstick and it's that little bit more special when it's from higher end brand and I treasure it that little bit more. I tend to treat myself to a lipstick from one of these brands every once in a while and have started to build a mini collection. Since these lipsticks cost £20+ I tend to stick to shades I know i'll wear a lot so you'll see a theme of pinky nudes in this post.

I promised myself I wouldn't be placing any more orders from America for a while as the customs charges were just becoming a nightmare, however, Colourpop had 20% off site wide over Black Friday weekend and I just couldn't resist. CP is one of my favourite US brands as the products are so goo yet so affordable, I just wish they were more readily available in the UK. I placed this order with CP and had it delivered directly to my house instead of a third party mailing service as CP have free international delivery over $50 and I thought at least that would save me some money!
