Hello Doll-friends.. I feel like it's been a while since we've actually spoken. So here I am, I have been wanting to post all week but it's been pretty busy and my heads generally all over the place. This week was also a year since my best friend from school days passed away so that had been playing on my mind all week. I feel better now and don't worry there's a lot to come over the next week or so, I know I say it a lot but seriously my list of 'To-Do posts' is getting longer and longer. Firstly can I just say how gorgeous the weather has been in London this week/weekend. I am so loving it.. It's making me smile and definitely making me focus on the positive. Ok where to start I feel like this is going to be a HUGE post, I also feel like I haven't posted a FOTD in ages however this ones a little different!
If you follow me on Twitter you will know that on Wednesday I decided to go for a haircut.. and TA DA! ended up with a fringe/bangs whatever you want to call them. I feel like I really needed the change at first I was unsure if I liked it but now I have to say I am secretly loving my new do. I am going through a lot of changes in life at the moment and this hair sort of signifies a new me. I used to be so experimental with my hair but over the last few years have just let it grow in to that state of BLAH.. easy, one colour, low maintenance hair. Anyways I don't even know if you guys are reading this so I might as well just insert a pic NOW...
So there you have it..Since having it cut I have to say everyone that knows me and has seen it loves it, which is a good thing! It feels so different and I keep having to looki in the mirror because it doesn't look like me looking back. I have had a few people say I look like Nickki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, Jessie J, Cleopatra and one woman even asked if i was wearing a wig haha! I also can't believe how shiny it looks and trust me I've not been using any hair products on it.
With the new do I've been saying bye to smokey eyes and hello to statement lips! I think it's good timing as I love wearing colour on my lips when its sunny outside. The colours I have been opting for are orange/reds. I have made good use of NARS 'Red Square', MAC 'So Chaud' and my newest MAC lippie 'Lady Danger'. Lady Danger is gorgeous and I can't believe I didn't own this before. It's a vibrant red with a slight coral undertone. It's AMAZE!
I have also been absolutely LOVING Inglot's gel black eyeliner. It is unbelievable and like no gel liner I've tried before. The consistency is amazing and it glides on so perfectly. The black is intense and so long lasting, it's actually waterproof - Which is ideal as my eyes have not stopped watering due to bad hayfever. I am so impressed with this liner right now out of all the ones I've tried this is my favourite. It's also mega affordable at £10 I actually paid £8 as I have an Inglot Make up artist card, I am so considering getting this in more colours. I have not stopped using it since I purcased it, I can't even explain how great it is but for real it's a must try product!
In other make up news I have changed my concealer, I was previously using MAC's Pro longwear concealer and although I loved the way it initially looked when I applied it I found a few hours on it would have dissapeared and that was a major dissapointment. Before that I was using MAC's studio sculpt but again wasn't wow'd by it. So now I have switched back to one of the first concealers I ever used and that is MAC studio finish concealer. This gives great coverage and I find is a lot longer lasting than any other concealer I have used. I am getting on pretty well with it right now which is important as I have some serious panda eyes to conceal!
I will quickly give you a make up run down of what I'm wearing in these pics!

I have also been digging the turqoise/green/teal nails again - It's the sun! it does things to me. I am currently wearing 'Jim Jams' by Filthy Gorgeous such an amazing colour, I always seem to dig out my turqoise jewellery when I wear these colours on my nails. Sorry for no close up of the colour I painted these about 3 days ago and my nails are chipped and I didn't want to share haha!
Hope everyone is having an amazing weekend!? Happy Easter to all those celebrating be good and eat lots of chocolate! P.S Because of this post title I can't stop singing Ricky Martin - She bangs! Tut Tut..
Lots of Love..
