FOTD and Christmas is coming!

Revlon Colorstay Foundation
Benefit Boi-ing Concealer
Primark 'The Happy Couple' Blush/Bronzer Duo
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in 'Midnight Cowboy Rides Again' all over lid
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in 'Last Call' in outer corner
Illamasqua Precision Ink Eyeliner in Abyss
Benefit Bad Gal Eyeliner on outer corner of lower lashes
Rimmel Lash Accellorator Mascara
17 Eyebrow Pencil
MAC 'Innocence, Beware!' lipstick

Thought I'd do a little 'face of the day' (sorry my hair is a bit of a mess - I'm trying to straighten it as little as possible!) as I'm really pleased with my glowy yet natural make up today. I think I definitely have MAC's 'Innocence, Beware!' lipstick to thank for this, I've definitely got a new-found love for it. Also completely loving my Primark 'The Happy Couple' Blush/Bronzer, it really is fab at giving a beautiful glowing cheek, and so cheap too! I was going to take the pictures this morning on my camera, but did an outfit of the day instead (which I've since scrapped!) so I'm afraid they're just webcam pics taken post afternoon nap (I fell asleep whilst reading, can't have been that interesting!)

You might have noticed I've been a lot more frequent with my posts at the minute; I'm trying to keep this up but it's mainly due to the fact I've been snowed in for the past week, and therefore have been going a little bit crazy with boredom! I have a lot of uni work to do (2 essays due in 2 weeks) but I'm not in the right frame of mind at the minute to be writing them, the snow has got me too excited about Christmas!

I had a really good weekend, went shopping yesterday with my boyfriend for Christmas pressies and treats for myself, and amazingly got a lot of the things I've been wanting for ages. I was distraught the other day when I realised the River Island Moccasins I'd been eyeing online for weeks had sold out in my size, but was SO pleased to see them sitting waiting for me in my local RI yesterday! I also spent last night putting up Christmas decorations and if I do say so myself my room looks fab...

HOW cute is this penguin I got?

I've got lots of pretty decorations hanging up too, but couldn't take a decent photo! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and is keeping safe in the snow (that doesn't seem to want to leave!). Have you all got your Christmas decorations up yet?
