I went a little crazy after Christmas and bought a bunch of things online. I haven't received all of it yet, but I decided to get a haul up, so that I could start to put some of this stuff away. I haven't included absolutely everything, because I want to leave possibilities there for other posts including those items. I'm going to try not to rant and rave too much, because I don't know what I might choose to review and I don't want to get too repetitive. I have also included a few other interesting things that I've been into.
^As you can see I have chosen the picture of these two books by Lauren Rennells as the "post picture". If you follow me on Facebook you will know that I am a little obsessed with these already. I will be posting up reviews at some point.
^From Crush Cosmetics I bought NYX blotting paper, NYX finishing sprays (one in dewy, one in matte), Matte Bronzer in light, Sally Hansen Miracle Care gloss and NYX Wonder Pencil in medium.
^I bought some Sleek eye shadow palettes, a brow Kit, a matte lip colour, a gloss, three multi-purpose pencils and a concealer.
^I bought a bunch of Sukin products (shown in picture: face moisturiser, cleanser and mist toner), oil-free make-up remover, simple make-up remover, witch hazel blemish stick and BE mud mask. I have no idea how good any of this is yet, because I have not used all of the products and I have only been using some of them for a couple of days.
I also bought Sukin shampoo and conditioner and some new body moisturisers from other brands.
I have been watching a few different youtube channels lately. I'll list links to my favourites here:

MOVIES I WATCHED AND LOVED:

-I may do a book vs movie comparison on this.
'Crazy Stupid Love'
'One for The Money'
-Once I got over Katherine Heigl's Jersey accent I really enjoyed this.
Hope you are all having a lovely Holiday. Back to work soon! Did you get anything at the boxing day sales?
