    3. Highlight of 2010: My highlight was finally moving into our first house. The hub and I were married in November, 2009 but we had been living in the house I grew up in whilst ours was finished being built. It has been this amazing challenge facing these 'grown up years' as I like to call it, together with each other, in our wonderful first home.
    4. I don't have one favourite makeup purchase. I have several, mostly chanel glossimer's in coral love & mac's highland honey blush, & mac's nailpolish called life affair.

However, In March/April I have been lusting for barbie pink blush, which made me buy MAC Dollymix, Full Fushia, && That purple shade from Liberty of London, can't remember the name. Totally in love with these blushes, However, only Dollymix gets the most used.

Of course I also need to mention that I converted my personal blog into a full-time (sorta) make up/beauty blog. I've met SO many amazing people through this community!

    2. Steph,
    3. My favourite moment of 2010 was when my boyfriend of 5 years proposed to me outside the Ritz! He let me shop all day, took me to a gorgeous restaurant for dinner, then took me to see The Lion King musical which i've wanted to see for ages... and then proposed to me on the way to our hotel in the pouring rain! It was so romantic :-)
    4. If I had to choose would be Nars Sheer Glow foundation :-)

    The Highlight of 2010: I think in general, I began to embrace myself, my body, my uniqueness (I always felt a bit like the odd one out). I became a professional bellydancer, I entered the fashion industry as a triple threat: stylist/model/journalist (well, I've only written one article for a beauty magazine but who's counting?). I think 2010 was the year that I finally found my feet, so to speak :)

    Favourite makeup purchase of the year: A frient bought me Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rose Shimmer. I think it's the prettiest pink/nude gloss ever :)

    And that's it I think! Thanks x

  86. Jo,

    2010 was all so unplanned so no holidays or get aways =(
    So I had to live with what London had to offer and that would be London pride and Nottinghill Carnival, not much but it was with the people that I love =D

    O and my new niece and finally met My One

    My fave make up purchase would be sleek contour kit and (not make up) but evian facial spray (its like mac fix+ but better and cheaper)

    003. The Highlight of 2010:
    The highlight of 2010 was that my mom and I are close again. After my sister moved out from the house, a long time ago, my mom and I we would argue a lot and pretty much about everything. I don't know why, but 2010 made us close again. Like when I was a child. Oh and also.. my sister is pregnant! Yay for 2010! :)

    Favorite Makeup Purchase:
    In 2010 my favorite makeup purchase would have to be a few things from MAC. My grandmother and my mom have undereye circles and puffy eyes. Eventhough I sleep 8 to 10 hours a night and I drink a lot of water, I will always have dark circles! I actually bought the Pro long wear concealer and I LOVE IT! C'est vraiment un miracle! :)

  102. My highlight of 2010 is that I was finally getting going with regards to my career. I've been doing tons of internships and getting loads of contacts so that when I graduate from university this spring I will be able to find a job quickly instead of waiting around. I'm a very goal-oriented person.

    My favorite purchase was my Nars Sheer Glow foundation. Its the only foundation I've tried that doesn't look like makeup on my skin. Fantastic!
