Moving to London

I’ve been offered a job in London! The same guy has been calling me for the last two years. The job itself is great although it requires me to travel up to three times a week, within Europe. And I just don’t know if I’m OK with that. I’m 30 now, I feel like it’s time for me to settle down and be in one place. Moving to London and having to travel that much just means I won’t be. I’d be on a plane and at work more than home. A lot of my relationships suffer from me being away, even now. I don’t get to see my family and friends nearly as much as I’d like too.

Yet I feel like I need a challenge in life, to keep things spicy and interesting for me…

Goooooood morning beauty buddies…

It’s another teeth chatteringly fresh morning here in N. Ireland *hurry up summer* as I’m currently clutching a steaming mug of hot sweet tea, curled up in Confetti & Curves HQ, ready for a full day of writing! My previously organised little desk is now awash with highlighters, notes and mechanical pencils… however before I detach myself from my tea and commence in a stationary spring clean, I’m chuffed to bring you yet another fun filled Behind The Blog.

As always, if you’re new to Confetti & Curves (friendly wave) and not entirely sure what Behind The Blog is all about *click here* to bring yourself up to speed – you may even find yourself getting involved!

Chipmunk cheeks!!!

I’ve gotten the question about my cheeks quite a few times. What do I do and how do I contour. To be honest, I don’t! I don’t know how to contour that well…I just apply bronzer on my cheekbones. And they become defined like this. Of course it’s not all make up. It comes from my dads side of the family, my sister and a few of my cousins have them as well. Some more than others.

Late night selfie sesh + thoughts

It’s almost 2AM where I am…

I always work better at night so it’s no surprise I’m doing a bunch of things right now! Answering emails I’ve left un-answered for days. Making that playlist on Spotify I’ve been meaning to make for weeks. Writing a to-do list for the coming weeks. Planning a bunch of different things coming up. Thinking about texting a guy I like. Painting my nails. Testing out a new make up look. Planning for the future of this blog. Writing down ideas for outfit posts. Trying not to online shop. Scheduling posts for the next few days. Reading a open letter to Kim Kardashian. Watching Suits on Netflix. Researching relaxations tips. And snapping a bunch of selfies.

And for the record, it’s been a very boring Saturday, I don’t get why people love days off…especially when you’re sick.

LOTD: London/Lillipop

While I was in London I picked up a Primark lipstick. I heard they were good and had to try it for myself. And at only £1.50, you can’t really go wrong. Yes, like any other lipstick out there you do have to re-apply throughout the day but other than it’s a great one. This is the matte long-lasting formula and it is exactly that. For me it lasts a long time and is matte. And what’s even better is that it’s not drying on me, at all.

The shade I’m wearing is Lollipop and it comes in three more shades. I only picked up the two different pink shades. There is also a red one as well as a nude. But, because I don’t really wear red lipstick and I already have a nude I’m happy with I didn’t pick up those. A decisions I’m regretting right now…

About last week…

If you follow my blog you’ve read about a surprise trip I was given for my birthday. I only found out where I was going when I got to the airport early Thursday morning of last week. And just as I had guessed and hoped for, it was London.

I was going with my sister and one of my best friends lives there, so I know it was gonna be a great trip. What I didn’t know was that one of my other best friends would show up too. Actually I guessed someone else I knew was coming but I couldn’t ever guess it was Dina. Not that she wouldn’t do this for me but because it was Valentines Day weekend, and she made me believer she was spending it with her boyfriend. He even was in on it, texting me about restaurant ideas for V-day.

LOTD : Reflecting Bloom

IMG_5188

My lip combo today is Lumene Natural Code lipstick in the shade 3 Nude Beige with IsaDora Express Star gloss over it, it’s in the shade 54 Reflecting Bloom. I have the full size version but I like the travel size better because it’s easy to bring along for touch ups during the day.
