When it comes to make up it's as if I'm forever adding to my collection and as a result I forget to utilise what I have. #FridaysFaceOff is something new I'm trying where I break down the products I'm wearing in an attempt to rediscover old favourites, highlight new ones and reinforce my love for the everyday essentials.

Today I bring you a new purchase, OK I say new but I purchased this on my birthday in the New York INGLOT store in Times Square. It's new because it's taken me this long to get around to using it. If I'm honest, like most beauty junkies we purchase under pressure (Ha!) I picked this up merely because I wanted something new!

Cloud Nine have recently released their touch technology straighteners that power on and activate by touching the plates together. There are two heat settings 195/165 and these badboys heat up almost instantly (great for me as I'm always running late!). Personally the best thing however, is that they auto switch off. I am forever wondering if I turned my straighteners off, I'll get in the car and have to drive back to check (annoying!) The C9 Touch is the ideal solution - They turn off within minutes, FINALLY Peace of mind!

Stumbling across Bettina nail polishes was a complete fluke, I'm going to set the scene. Picture this its 9AM I'm in Miami I've just come back from my morning run along South Beach - I return to my hotel room and the friend who's on vacay with me is on the phone having a domestic with her boyfriend - The energy in the room was killing me so I turned around, walked back out, head down Collins and did what I do best - ended up pursuing the isles in Walgreens. I was filling my basket with the usual unnecessary beauty bits when I was instantly drawn to a small stand of nail polishes by the cash register, low and behold - BETTINA

Happy Monday my loves, Monday is my favourite day of the week and today I am so delighted to share with you the re-design of my MouldyFruit. It's quite a big change for me because I decided to strip it down and take it back to basics. I wanted my blog to be clean, simple and a place where I feel calm, collected and ready to write. I hope you guys like it! I have to thank Sincerely Lara who helped with the layout - Me and HTML coding are useless! What do you guys think of the new MouldyFruit logo? It's actually my handwriting, I tend to doodle when I'm on the phone and sometimes I write the same thing over and over again - One of my friends was like hold on - I like it. That's it - That's the new logo! So I scanned it in and sent it over to ma cheri ChloƩ (you may know her at the TheHollywoodHeels but now she's better known as @Chloehollywood - Check out her amazing Instagram) so she hooked me up, and created this logo - At first I wasn't sure, I'm a perfectionist and I thought this was scruffy and too freehand - But then it really grew on me and to be fair it sums me up - A little scatty!

I really felt like a blog revamp was necessary in order to get my creative juices flowing in 2014.

I hope you guys like it, I know it's quite a change, from the bold before BUT I like it - Monochrome MouldyFruit. There are still a few little tweaks here and there but I hope so far, you guys approve!

Speak to you loves later on.

Lots of Love

Since organising my nail polish collection in my new beauty room painting my nails has been quite the challenge - Now, more than ever I find myself uhming and ahhing over colours, finishes and textures - #GIRLPROBLEMS. I can't wait to share my new nail polish storage with you all but more on that later. Today after much deliberation, I opted for this gorgeous shade of grey by Mavala  and now 'New York' is currently on my nails! 


New York on my Nails!

January is the month where most, vow to approach the year differently making changes to 'Better' onself. I'm anti resolutions but as a result of excessive, festive feasting and late night frolicking in December, my skin is now paying the consequences. SO it was time for some New Year skincare changes, what does one do? Turn to a 'Miracle Mask' and hope that it really does, work MIRACLES!

The hunt for finding the perfect mascara continues.. actually I think I challenge myself to try just about every mascara on the market before I can fully conclude which is the BEST, therefore the hunt is never-ending! My must have mascara of the moment is Maybelline's Volum'Express The Mega Plush. Why is it? that every time I type Maybelline I can't help but sing the jingle from the advert! Please tell me I'm not the only one?

Over the years I've tried my fair share of concealers, some have impressed me and I've continued to repurchase them whereas others have stayed in the drawer till it was time for a 'Mouldy Make Up' clear out. Today I bring you my 'Concealer Heroes' a current selection of concealers that I absolutely adore and use in rotation, depending on what look I'm going for.

Lips Lips Lips have been such a major LOVE of mine for 2013. I discovered so many new lip products and I favoured bold, bright lips more than I ever have done.

I've broken down the days into different categories and today I am delighted to share with you my 'Best of Base' products. 2013 was the year I fell in love with dewy, radiant skin and some of the products featured have become essential to my everyday make up routine.
