If you're a big fan of Lush like me, then you've probably been awaiting the Easter Collection almost as much as those delicious chocolate Easter eggs you'll be devouring this Sunday! Like all Lush collections, this one is full of products for both bath and body, with gorgeous designs, delicious scents and a dash of limited edition goodness that'll leave you wanting to snap up the entire collection before it's sold out for another year.

At the beginning of March I set myself a target of getting through four books (see here), and like February it's a target I smashed through finishing a total of seven books throughout March. It's time to review the books I read this month, and find out whether they're books I'd recommend you to read too!

If you asked me to pick just one brand as my absolute favourite for high-end makeup, it would be Bobbi Brown without a doubt. Bobbi Brown is a brand I feature a lot here on Tattooed Tealady, a brand whose products never fail to impress me and whose formulas and quality far outdoes any other brands I have tried. There's something incredibly beautiful about Bobbi Brown products, with their simple yet bold packaging and stunning shade ranges with a colour to suit any taste. When it comes to quality, there really is nothing like Bobbi Brown.

March has been a funny month. It's still cold like winter, but with the sun shining more and more each day, I've found myself wanting to turn to more spring-typical shades. I've spent much of March changing my look on a daily basis, not quite sure if it's time for brighter spring looks, but not wanting to stay in the dark hues of winter.

When I was younger I very rarely dabbled in eyeshadow palettes, now my favourite way to build up my eyeshadow stash, instead I had a makeup bag (or two) full of individual eyeshadows. Nowadays there's very few individual eyeshadows in my makeup collection, but the ones I do have are from a small selection of brands whose formulas and quality I adore.

I'm a sucker for Lush products, yet it's been years since I tried one of their gift sets. A great way to try a variety of products in one, I've been taking full advantage of the Hello Gorgeous Gift Set, featuring five deliciously scented and super pampering Lush best-sellers.

I love lipsticks. Honestly, there's few things that make me feel as confident as applying lipstick and completing a look with a flash of colour. Whether that's a subtle nude or pink to flatter a bold eye, or something brighter and bolder to please the extrovert in me.

As a blogger, I am always on the look out for the next 'amazing must-have' product, and I've lost count of how many products and brands I have dabbled in over the years. If there's one thing which I think splits not only beauty consumers in half, but the beauty blogging community itself, it's the question over whether high-street or high-end is better. Is high-street better because it offers affordable products? Does a higher price tag mean a better product? Should you avoid a brand because it's cheap? It's time to have a debate, high-street vs high-end...

I am a big lover of lip gloss, but I wasn't always. I used to hate lipgloss - sticky, messy, always getting my hair stuck in it and that uncomfortable obvious feel on my lips. Lip gloss is definitely a love it or hate it product, but over the past couple of years I've managed to find some brands and ranges which I have come to really love, with one brand in particular.

A couple of weeks back I shared a wishlist of contouring, bronze and highlight products (see here) I had my eye on. I've been trying to find the perfect products for achieving a flawless contour and highlight for so long now, and over the months I've built up quite a list of products from rave reviews and recommendations that I wanted to try out for myself. Little did I know that the most perfect product for achieving a professional and natural looking contour and highlight would come from a brand I've barely dabbled in before. Introducing, the Daniel Sandler Sculpt & Slim-Effect Contour Face Powder.

The Laura Mercier Crème Brûlée Soufflé Body Crème is one of the most talked about Laura Mercier body products I've ever come across. So much so, it's earned itself quite the cult status. But is it worth all the hype and rave reviews?

I have always had odd sleeping patterns. I'm a self-confessed night owl, always feeling more productive at night and for as long as I can remember I've always stayed up until the early hours of the morning. When I was younger I stayed up late with my head buried in books, in University I stayed up late because, well, that was the done thing to do in University, and now? I stay up late with my head buried in books.
I'm a big fan of Burt's Bees, a brand which harnesses the power of Bees with a huge range of cruelty free products, all of which are almost 100% natural. The Burt's Bees Tips and Toes Kit is perfect for anyone new to the brand, giving you a chance to try six of their products perfect for pampering everything from your feet to your lips, all in generous travel sizes which last ages.

If there's one brand whose collections make me swoon, it's Bobbi Brown. The newest Hot Collection features this season's must have products, shades and finishes. Featuring lip products galore, blush and eyeshadow palettes alongside an eye liner and mascara, there's a mix of both permanent and limited edition products for you to fall in love with.

With Mother's Day just around the corner, Lush have created the perfect selection of products to keep your mum (or you!) pampered. With many of the products within the range being limited edition, this is one collection you'll need to snap up before it's gone for good!

I'm one of those girls who has to wear eyeliner. I just don't think my makeup looks right without liner, and whether it's pencil, liquid or gel, my look isn't complete without it. Although I love pencil and liquid liners, the formula I find easiest to work with is gel, and my favourite brand for gel liners? Bobbi Brown, every single time.

My skin has been in pretty good condition over the past few months, with most of my skin woes being tackled by a dedicated skincare routine and most importantly - not switching about my products so often. As a blogger you always want to try the latest products and innovations, but it got to the point where I was always trialling something new and my skin was definitely getting fed up of it. Over the past few months I've decided that constantly changing the products in my routine isn't going to be beneficial for my skin in the long-term, and I needed to get a good routine down with products my skin adores, and stick to it.

I'm a sucker for a good palette. Eyes have always been my favourite way to experiment with makeup and eyeshadow palettes are the perfect way to indulge with the ability to create a whole ton of different looks. I've tried a couple of products from Cargo before, but the limited edition Northern Lights Eyeshadow Palette is my first dabble into their eye products.

I can't be the only one who has become completely smitten with liquid lacquers. More often than not I reach for a liquid lip over a standard bullet lipstick, preferring the intensely opaque shades and long-lasting formulas that come with liquid lacquers. I've tried quite a few brands over the past year or so, ranging from the really budget high-street brands, to high-end brands with prices that make my eyes water. Some have been absolutely amazing - whilst others have lacked that oomph I look for in a liquid lip. These are my top three brands for liquid lacquers!
Another month means another reading target. In February I set myself the target of reading three books and by the end of the month after catching the reading bug I managed to finish seven. It's tempting to set myself a big target for this month after devouring so many books last month, but I'm going to stick to achievable targets and so for March I'm giving myself four books I want to get through. These are the books I'll be reading this month!

Few things make me as happy as buying gorgeous new beauty products. If you read yesterday's 'The Sunday Post #23 | Time to catch up' post, you'll know that on Saturday I went shopping for a well over due splurge, so of course, I had to share my mini beauty haul!

'The Sunday Post' was something I started at the beginning of 2014 and I actually really enjoyed writing them each week; that said my last The Sunday Post was way back in June 2014! Last summer I was completing my degree and my dissertation had completely consumed my life, I just didn't have as much time and so these posts just... stopped. I've been wanting to start them up again for quite a while now, so I thought now was better than never!
