January Scrapbook Tour

So the new year rolled around and we all know that that means new beginnings, new hopes and new hobbies.  I decided that one of my new year, new hobbies would be scrapbooking.  I've always loved taking photos and capturing memories. 
 
In the old days I remember taking my holiday rolls of film to the photo processing shop in town and waiting a couple of days to go and pick them up, excited to see what I'd captured.  When I got home I spent hours putting them all in photo albums with little receipts or memorabilia from my trip. 
 
In recent years, I've not bothered printing out photos, instead I store them on my computer, hard drive and in albums on Facebook.  This kinda made me sad as flicking through a photo album or scrapbook is such an enjoyable experience and one that just isn't recreated by the online or digital counterpart.
 
I decided to go down the Project Life route and I've really enjoyed the whole process of it.  I've seen some amazingly creative and wonderful designs on YouTube and various blogs and mine are definitely not on the same level - but that's ok. 

Here's a little video tour of my first month and what I've chosen to scrapbook or if you prefer scroll down for some pictures.

Three Easy Braids


So I filmed a thing...
 
I really want to get more into YouTube this year as I love the creative process of filming and editing.  My editing is by no means the best but I'm hoping the more I do, the better I get.  Check out my 3 Easy Braids video.
 
I'd love to hear you comments on what you think. Although, please try and be kind!! :)

Mascara Mission


 I'm a floozy when it comes to mascaras.  I swap and change all the time. I haven't found one that I really love and does everything I want it to do. I'm making it my mission to find my  perfect mascara.

All Those 'Best Of 2014' Videos | Lips


Finding the face and the eye products I want to try in 2015 was pretty easy. In fact, I could of picked about 20 for each but I've found lips slightly harder. 2014 was definitely a year of discovery for me as far as lip products go. I talked here about being brave and finally having the courage to wear a bold lip and it's been kinda a revelation as far as my make-up is concerned.

Januarys Glossybox has landed and this month there are an impressive five full sized products inside this beauty box.   The box is mainly a make-up box this month which is a nice little treat for January and there are several new brands that I've not heard of before including Nicka K New York, Kueshi (watch the video to hear me try & pronounce that one!) and Jelly Pong Pong.  This month everyone gets the same inside their Glossybox.

All Those 'Best of 2014' Videos | Face


We've seen hundreds, thousands, heck probably millions of 'The Best Beauty Products of 2014' videos go live on YouTube over the past few weeks or so.  And I have to admit I love them.  But by watching them they've expanded my beauty/make-up shopping list ten fold.

Juicing Is Hard Work!


As it's the start of a new year and being healthy is definitely on the top of my list right now, I decided to dust off my juicer and get some nutrients into this body of mine.

Be Brave, Go Bold


I used to be a self confessed nude lip-gloss-aholic. This time last year nude/slightly pink shimmery lip glosses were the only product in the lip section of my make up collection.
