NARS Steven Klein Collection

NARS Steven Klein Magnificent Obsession Lip Set and NARS Steven Klein Fantascene Collection Despair Cheek Palette

NARS collaborations are always exciting as it often gives me an insight into a creative person I haven't had the opportunity to be introduced to.  This time it's all about photographer Steven Klein, known for his work with the likes of Madonna and Lady Gaga.  This collection is quite large but today I have two products which I've been loving recently to share with you all.  Here's what you should expect.

Primark Spring/Summer 2016 Bags

Primark Spring/Summer 2016 Bags

When it comes to accessories, I'm a total bag lady.  While my wardrobe is pretty much full of the biggest bags you can find, I felt I was lacking some modest sized choices.  I wasn't looking for anything too expensive so I popped over to Primark and I couldn't resist some of their Spring/Summer designs.  Here's what I picked up.

Models Own Sale Haul

Models Own Haul

While I managed to resist quite a lot of the deals going on during the boxing day sales, I found it too hard to resist 50% off on Models Own nail polishes.  It's safe to say my nail polish collection is fully stocked for quite some time! With another 50% off online deal just around the corner (put the 28th of January in your diaries!) I probably won't be participating this time but I thought I'd share what I picked up last time if you're in need of some inspiration.

Whittard Finest Tea Collection

Whittard Finest Tea Collection

Last year was the year I really got into my tea.  I've been wanting to branch out and try some new flavours but with so much choice out there, it's hard to narrow it down.  Luckily, I was very kindly gifted the wonderful Whittard Finest Tea Collection by my lovely boyfriend for Christmas which features eight selections of black and green tea.  Here's what you should expect from each flavour.

Mascaras of the Moment

Top 3 Mascaras: Benefit They're Real Tinted Mascara Primer, Max Factor Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara and MAC In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara

When it comes to makeup, I love trying out new mascaras.  Brands are always coming out with new mascara wand innovations so there's always something new around the corner to look forward to.  With a new year means throwing out the old ones and giving something different a try so these are my current mascaras of the moment.
