With winter finally starting to ebb away and the first touches of spring starting, the spring beauty releases are coming out in force. I love spring collections; they're the perfect in-between of bold, warm shades we turn to in winter, with a hint of the lighter, bright shades we all love in summer. Most season collections are full to the brim with gorgeous products, the majority of which are usually limited edition and sell-out in a flash, often leaving loyal customers scrambling to get their hands on their favourite products from the collection before they're gone for good. This spring Urban Decay have stepped up their collection-game, with a stunning array of new product launches - that are all permanent additions to the Urban Decay range!
The countdown to March is here, but before February disappears for another year, it's time to introduce you to my fabulous February advertisers! Covering gorgeous blogs and a skincare specialist, I hope you enjoy getting to know the lovely bloggers and experts behind my advertisers this month - you never know, you might even find a new favourite blog read!
At the beginning of February I set myself a target of reading three books, which I shared in my post 'Reading in February'. Little did I know I would get completely swept up in the reading-bug this month, and I found it impossible to stop reading, finishing a total of 7 books - and I'm already half-way through another! Here's my thoughts on the books I finished this month.
I own a lot of makeup brushes. I find makeup brushes pretty hard to resist; I'm not one for using my fingers when it comes to applying makeup, so brushes are a pretty big must-have in my routine. When I was younger I had but a handful of makeup brushes, in the days when I didn't even know yet alone appreciate the importance of keeping brushes clean and washed regularly, hand-me-downs from my mum's brush collection. Over the past three years or so I've slowly built up quite the collection, forever adding more to my stash. For me, a good makeup brush is just as - if not more - important as good makeup; for me, without a good brush it doesn't matter how expensive my makeup might be, if you don't apply it with the right tools, it'll never look how I want it to.
