Things that have made me smile | week 82

I've been a little shut off from the online world and have enjoyed a social media, work free week, yes that's right WORK FREE! A bliss 11 days off full of coffee in bed, lie ins till lunch time and lots and lots of delicious food //tomorrow marks day one of post week off detox//. 

Things that have made me smile . . .

One. . . / Going on a much needed night out. Did I drink too many cocktails? Yes. Did I stay up till the sun came up? Yes. Did I regret it all when my head was banging the next day? Of course, but those are the best nights and it felt good to let my hair down. 

Two. . . / A trip too the zoo, seeing all those cute animals is enough to put a smile on my face. The monkeys are always in appropriate but still cute. 

Three. . . / Going to flamingo land, I knew I didn't like rides but I still went anyway and yes it confirmed it I don't like rides, I don't like heights and my feet should be firmly on the ground. That being said I still had fun cycling, pooing my pants on the children's rides and nearly getting pooed on by the birds in the zoo area. 

Four. . . / Staying in bed all day and binge watching Netflix, can we just say how good 13 reasons why is and how hard it hits you in the feels. Riverdale and Girlboss are also great watches. 

Five. . . / Spending a sunny Sunday walking to a lovely little pub, eating my weight in roast dinner and chocolate fudge cake before returning home to eat the last of my Easter eggs and watch more Netflix.

And that's my week all wrapped up, it's one of the best I've had in a while. I hope you've all had a lovely week.

Things that have made me smile | week 81

It's been a busy old week again, full of work, fun and laughter. We've had a couple of sunny days and the daffodils are popping up everywhere, Spring is creeping up on us but were not quiet there yet. I love seeing the flowers everywhere they always put a little smile on my face. 

Other things that have made me smile . . .

1// Going to Aqua Zumba fitness class, I know I know I start a diet every Monday and never stick to it but I'm holding throwing in a little exercise will help keep that Monday motivation. The class is actually pretty fun too, silly moves that no one can see you mess up (believe me I mess up a lot) because your under the water. 

2// Pub quiz, this is the second time we've been now and our knowledge has not improved, we came last but we had fun getting to last place, and so,e points are better than none right? 

3// Doing a little shopping, I bought Ed Sheeran's new albums on vinyl and can we just all take a minute to appreciate how amazing it is!! There's not a single song on there that I don't LOVE! 

4// Having a Saturday date night in (cheesy I know) we cooked food, drank wine (obvs) and watched a movie with popcorn, PERFECT. And all in the comfort on my pj's! 

5// Having a very slow Sunday, it's all about the lay ins, coffee and food.

I hope you all have a lovely week.

Too faced sweet peach glow

The makeup addiction seems to be becoming very real atm, all the new releases keep coming and every single time I get sucked in (it doesn't take a lot) but the sweet peach scent from too faced has completely stolen my heart. It started with the sweet peach eyeshadow palette (Post here) and has now continued to the Sweet peach glow palette. I mean come on it's so pretty and that scent! // I'm that crazy person always sniffing her makeup palette. //
Too faced certainly didn't skimp on the packaging, it has the same super cute peach packaging as the eyeshadow palette but it's the inside they really went to town with. The highlight and bronzer are covered in the cutest little peaches and the pretty, pink blush has a large peach with the sweet peach logo. So girly, and pretty.
I have to admit when swatched on the fingers the products show up very pigmented but when applied onto the face with a brush it isn't as pigmented but you can easily build it up making it easy to have a toned downed look or full on glazed doughnut // can you ever really have too much highlight? // the bronzer and and the blush are more for us pale beauties as they are on the lighter side but the highlight will have any skin shade sparkling. It's really pretty and will look gorgeous when that sun we've all been missing finally makes an appearance. The blush is a soft pink that gives a little hint of colour, I just lightly apply it to the apple of my cheeks and I'm all good to go. I'm always looking for that sun kissed glow, a light dusting of the bronzer and I've been been on holiday for a week. // I wish I just burn in the sun // but it does give a lovely natural sun kissed glow. 
If you have lighter toned skin I would defiantly recommend this palette, it brightens the face beautifully but looks so natural. I would still give it a go if you have darker skin but it may take a little experimenting. // If you do try it let me know how you get on. // 

Do you have the peach bug yet?
