My 2018 mini break wish list

One of the most instagrammable buildings in Paris - La Maison Rose

Over the past few years I've become such an advocate for mini-breaks, city-breaks and short haul last minute getaways.  There's just so much that appeals to me about being able to get away even just for a long weekend - it's the perfect way to recharge and get a break from the every day grind, plus with several mini breaks rather than just one longer holiday in the year, I have lots more to look forward to and it's easier to beat the post holiday blues!

Beauty favourites

I thought it'd be nice to get back into doing favourites posts this year, as there are so many products I love which I just don't end up sharing with you otherwise.  I'll stop if things get a bit samey month to month, but recently I'm really trying to shake up my stash a lot, rather than sticking with the same safe (boring) look every day, and maybe a few sneaky purchases have started creeping in too!

The perfect liquid lip formula - MatteLast Liquid Lips by Pixi Beauty

I love liquid lipsticks - the pigment, the staying power, the bold look and matte finish.  If the trend for sheer, sticky, shiny lipglosses is on its way back anytime soon then count me out, because I just won't be able to let go of my beloved liquid lipsticks!  The latest additions to my long list of liquid lip loves  are the MatteLast Liquid Lips from Pixi and all of the neutral and totally wearable shades are my absolute jam lately.

Tarte Shape Tape and Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define concealer comparison review

The Tarte Shape Tape concealer is one of those really hyped up products - so much so that it used to be impossible to get hold of.  It's been around for a few years now and it's been on my wish list for the whole time.  I tried to get hold of it on a couple of trips to the states and once it became available on QVC I never managed to catch my shade in stock.   After Christmas I was browsing all of the online sales and ended up with a couple of things in my basket from Tarte and found that they had Shape Tape in stock in a light medium shade, so I added it straight to basket.  The irony is that a few days later, before my Tarte order arrived, I found out that Makeup Revolution had released a dupe.  I thought I may as well give it a try, so I grabbed two shades to compare when my Shape Tape arrived.
