Stila Kajal Eye Pencil in "Topaz"

Happy 2014 everyone!

For my first post of 2014 I thought I'd talk about one of my new favourite beauty finds. It isn't a new product but it is new to me. 

Basically I noticed that my eyes were quite red and tired when I woke up (mainly due to lack of sleep and strained eyes from staring at a computer all day). I have quite small eyes so I can never put dark eyeliner on my waterline to cover it hence why I decided to buy this eyeliner.

As you can see in the above photo it goes on very opaque.  I absolutely love it and it's not as stark as a white eyeliner can be so it's great for every day wear.

I bought mine here.

Would you wear this eyeliner?

My first MAC eyeshadows!

L to R: Nylon, Naked Lunch, Amber Lights, Woodwinked, Candy Yum Yum (lipstick), Peaches (blush)

Recently my next door neighbour went to Hawaii/America so I jumped at the opportunity and asked for them to bring me back a few goodies home from MAC. It was sort of a rushed decision because I left it to the last minute but I knew I wanted to get some eyeshadows because I have never tried MAC eyeshadows before. I hoped onto the American MAC site to suss out prices and just to have a look at different things they offer which we don't get here, luckily for me, they do customised quad palettes for quite cheap. I had a list of the shadows that I'd always wanted to try so I went for those first.

I ended up getting the following products:

Eyeshadow Quad Palette
Eyeshadows: Nylon, Naked Lunch, Amber Lights & Woodwinked.
Lipstick: Candy Yum Yum
Blush: Peaches

All up this cost about $100 US dollars!

Let me know if you'd be interested in me doing a FOTD using these eyeshadows as I am still yet to try them on my actual eyes!

P.s. Sorry the swatches aren't so great - I don't have a great lens for taking swatch photos! Hopefully I will get a new lens soon so they will improve.

I am sorry I have taken such a long break from blogging! I am finally ready to (fully) re-commit myself to Crosswire Dreamers.

Thank you for sticking around. I am going to aim to do at least one post a week from now on.

I look forward to getting all your comments and product recommendations again.

Recently I decided to go and get my nails done in the "stiletto" shape. I decided to go quite short as I find long nails a little scary and annoying. This is only the second time I have ever had fake nails. I love how they turned out when I got them filled yesterday.

Would you get "stiletto" nails?

Inspired By: Lemon Breeland

Something a bit different today, I want to share with you some fashion inspiration in the form of Lemon Breeland. If you don't know who that is, she is a character from the tv show Hart of Dixie. Megan actually got me into a few weeks ago and I've been hooked ever since. 

I absolutely adore the way lemon dresses, and constantly find myself saying I NEED that when she appears on screen.  I made this set on Polyvore inspired by Lemon. 

What TV show character inspires you?
