Loves Of Late #1

Hello and happy Sunday!

I find Sundays are the best days for me to write posts, it's the one day of the week where I don't leave the house as a rule so its perfect for catching up on writing posts, reading my favourite blogs, eating lots of food and spending too much time on twitter! 

I've never done a favourites post before. I know the usual thing to do is a monthly favourites post, but sometimes my favourite things don't change that often in terms of beauty products so instead of writing a post at the end of each month that would most likely have several repeats of things in the previous month's post, I've decided to do it my own way - like I do with everything else!

So this is my first Loves Of Late post! A sort of non-committal favourites post that I'm going to post whenever I feel like posting it. It'll have not only beauty related favourites, but also whatever else I'm liking at the time, be that food, clothes, a TV show or a blog I've been liking lately - it could have anything in it! 


Ive fallen in love with my Real Techniques Duo Fiber Collection (review here) over the past month. There just isn't a better set of duo fiber brushes out there than these at a reasonable price! They are just the softest, loveliest brushes ever and I can't say enough good things about them and it seems that Real Techniques can do no wrong!

I bought Sigma's Dry 'n' Shape last summer and I used it and really liked it, but in all the madness of the 3 moves I've done over the last year it got lost. I recently found it and realised how awesome it really is! It reshapes and dries your brushes so much faster and I'm making sure it never gets misplaced again!

I own 3 Inglot Shadows that have never gotten much love because I have other palettes that always took preference over them, but I've pulled them out a ton the last week and have to say I love them so much! They're buttery soft and blend like a dream, I'm planning on filling up my Z palette with more Inglot shadows so when I do expect a post on them!

I went into Boots recently to pick up a new mascara because my favourite L'ancome Hypnose Doll Eyes is close to running out - I will cry when it does! I wanted to try something new and not hugely expensive, so I was drawn to the Seventeen stand and picked up their new Superlash mascara which I haven't even opened yet, but I got a free Superlash liner with it and I have been loving the liner so much! I'll be doing a post this week hopefully, but to give you  quick run down it's a felt tip pen liquid liner but the nib is angled instead of the regular tip and it makes doing flicks so much easier! Lasting time is pretty good too!


I've been eating so badly lately! I have been trying so hard to stop drinking Coke, and drink more water and basically just anything but Coke, but I've been so bad and am now hooked on the stuff again all my hard work is ruined!

I've also been eating anything that has the slightest bit of garlic in it. I've made the Garlic Potato Bake Recipe I posted about earlier this week (see it here here) twice this week. Also I've been obsessed with making my Cheesy Garlic Bread too this week, its so nice for lunch or as a side to pretty much anything, so I might do a recipe post on that soon seeing as my other one was so well received!


I have been catching up on the TV shows that I've missed due to moving and being busy. Mainly The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, I have to say that I think I'm starting to prefer The Originals over The Vampire Diaries. I think it's because there's more action in The Originals and there's no ridiculous Elena/Stefan/Damon love triangle. It's just getting annoying now! Apart from that I do still love The Vampire Diaries though!

I started watching Awkward this week, and I'm now nearly caught up with all of it. I love it so much and I'm well and truly hooked! I thought I was in favour of Jenna and Matty but then Collin came into it - he's amazing! I don't know who I like more! ha ha!


I've recently only been able to really listen to music again because honestly it was just pissing me off, I don't know if that's normal - I'm guessing not! ha ha! But I've been back on my One Direction kick and can't stop listening to them again, I'm pretty sure I have my housemate driven mad at this stage. If I'm not playing them I'm going around singing the songs!

 Apart from 1D, I'm so in love with Stay The Night by Zedd & Hayley Williams. I'm a MASSIVE Paramore and Hayley Williams fan, but it took a while for this song to grow on me, but now that it has I absolutely love it and can't get it out of my head or stop playing it! If you haven't heard it yet - you need to! But I'm sure you all have heard it and haven't been living under a rock like I have for months! ha ha!

And that's pretty much it! I think I prefer this way of posting favourites. For me, it's overwhelming when there's a ton of monthly favourites posts all at the one time and you can only read so many of them at once before you don't want to read them anymore! Plus I also like seeing more in favourites posts than just products! 

Don't get me wrong I like seeing beauty favourites but seeing what other things a blogger is into at the moment gives you a sense of who they are, and I always like to know a bit more about the people who write the blogs I'm reading!
