Sunday rituals, wake up, watch endless hours of YouTube videos, finally get out of bed, have a bath, do a bit of cleaning and then sit for hours browsing websites mentally making wishlists. This is one of those times where I have complied a list of things that I hope to get at the end of this month. Already counting down the days. It’s also a good way of keeping a reminder of things I really want/need as opposed to buying random rubbish. Kat Von D contour palette is apparently better then Anastasia Beverly Hills palette, (so I’ve heard) and seeing as I am forever trying to perfect the whole contour technique this is clearly a product that I need to get my hands on. And as I am making a Sephora purchase in the near future I thought I may as well get other things from the range, they’re not available from the UK – why, I don’t know! The tattoo concealer is supposedly heavy duty coverage without feeling too cakey, my dark under eye-circles need some seriously strong stuff. The only issue is, I’m abit hit and miss with colours, so it’s going to be a real struggle trying to figure out what shade I am. *foresee hours of blog research coming up*. The Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner is also a cult product in the beauty world and I love me winged black eyeliners. The Tarte amazonian clay blush would also be a part of the Sephora order, the dusky rose colour is so beautiful, subtle whilst giving you a decent amount of colour for olive skin-tone. I love the formulas of Tarte blushers too, they last a super long time!

If I could, like genuinely had the revenue I would buy everything in the Charlotte Tilbury range. Not only is she an amazing woman, but she’s brought the most fabulous products in her range! I’ve brought the Light Wonder foundation and literally every single time I put it on I just think my skin looks phenomenal without looking like I have 5 layers of makeup. Her concealing pen is what I am super excited about, think YSL Touche Eclat (which I loved for years) but a lot more coverage. I actually saw this in Hannahs GRWM video and fell in love with how well it blended in and concealed. Then there’s a blush called Sex on Fire – I asked my husband if he could grab this on his way home from work and he just looked at me as if I was crazy. It was the same face he pulled when I asked him to get me NARS Audacious lipstick in Fanny. So funny. In the picture it looks more on the bronze side. But in real-life its more of a subtle dusky rose blush with a slight bronze pop in the middle. Its a lovely colour for olive skin-tones. 

Then we have two miscellaneous bits, first being the Hemsley and Hemsley Spiralizer. Many many years ago I went on a Uni trip to Istanbul and a man on the stalls was selling apples but all spiralized. I hate apples but ate an entire one just because it has been cut in this super cool way. We went back to try and find him because we wanted to buy the spiral cutting tool thing but had no idea where he went. 7 years later, we have this fabulous mechanism. Best of all, its only £29.99, I also want their cookbook and hopefully this lures me into cooking. Speaking of cooking, the Kitchenaid - oh my, how gorgeous are they? The one in Ice Blue in particular is amazing! Definitely on the wishlist. Have you got a wishlist primed and prepped for Feb?

On a side note, like I mentioned at the start of the post, Sundays is YouTube day for me, not only do I watch them but I also have a new video going up every Sunday 9.30am GMT. This Sunday I posted a Primark Haul, I can never find any clothes in Primark. I used to be able to like 4/5years ago, but recently I have been loving the homeware section! So if home stuff is your thing then enjoy the video!
