Surprisingly Good Mascara

 Rimmel's Scandal Eyes Rockin' Curves in Extreme Black - Surprisingly Good Mascara

The Hunt For The Perfect Mascara

It's been a while since I've been makeup shopping and I'm really not up with the current trends, so I've been watching a lot of makeup reviews on YouTube and in the end I just lost track of which products got good reviews and which ones didn't. I hit the stores thinking if I could look at the packets, and see what's what in person I might have a better chance at making a decision.

I really wanted one of those fancy lash lengthening fibre mascaras that does magic things to your eyes, but I also wanted packaging that was slim line and would fit in my small travel makup pouch nicely. Pretty packaging wouldn't hurt either as well as smudge free and all that stuff just goes without saying right?

Entrelac Tunisian Crochet

It's #FinishItFriday where I share with you a project that needs to be completed.

The goal of Finish It Friday is to make progress toward finishing UFO's (unfinished objects) by working on it today. 

Perhaps I'll inspire you to pick up your own UFO and make some progress too!

Entrelac Tunisian Crochet

This week I'm thinking about this abandoned entrelac project from May last year. I don't have any real plans for it but I'm thinking about it.

Makeup Declutter: Foundation

Makeup Declutter: Foundation
For a long time I didn't use foundations at all. A bit of powder and I'd be good to go. I've never been a fan of the heavy feel that foundation leaves on your face.

When I started using foundation I think I used Covergirl, then either the formula changed or my skin changed and it just wasn't working for me any more.

I've never found one I was particularly happy with.
