Bargain Beauty Bits I’m Buying



I’ve never pretended to act like I know what I’m doing when it comes to beauty and make-up, I really don’t. However one thing I can say is that I love buying new products and trying new things, so I thought I’d share with you a few beauty bits I’m loving right now. Continue reading


Lipstick Loving #1



I do only have little lips, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dress them up a bit. I mean they’re not THAT little, but don’t expect any Kylie Jenner pouts here. Sorry.

I’ve never been a big lip product kind of person due to cold sores. I went through a stage of anything that would go near my lips used to bring out a cold sore and it felt like I couldn’t get away from them.

Chinese New Year

I don’t usually do anything special for Chinese New Year – except on the odd occassion where I’ve eaten Chinese take-away – but I would’nt class that as celebrating. This year, for the first time, I went to see the Chinese New Year festival in Chatham Highstreet.

I’m not sure what I was expecting to see, and there were at times things/people taking part that I was a little confused about, but overall it was quite a fun and exciting experience. I will add that this experience would have definaltly been hightened if I had some chow mein!

Though this was only a reletivly small festival, compared to China Town or China, it gave a small insight into their culture, beliefs and fashion. Does anyone do anything special for Chinese New Year? I think I’ll have to add Chinese New Year in China onto the bucket list now.
