Spring Wishes...

Spring is one of my favourite season's, and not just because of all the guilt-free chocolate I get to eat at Easter. I love the idea of fresh make-up during this time of year. Think fresh, polished and radiant skin with hints of peach and pink goodness on the lips and cheeks. A subtle and fuss free eye with a slick of mascara - perfect. 
My make-up routine is pretty much still in Winter mode, although who can blame me when it's currently snowing outside, so here are some products I've been lusting over that will hopefully pull me out of Winter mode and push me straight into Spring. 

I've been hearing a couple of my favourite beauty bloggers talking about the Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener recently and as soon as I heard about it, I wanted it, in true blogger style. The Bobbi Brown correcter had always appealed to me because of my dark under-eye circles but the thick and dry consistency put me off so this new formula is completely perfect for me and will hopefully rid me of my dark under-eyes just in time for Spring. Sticking with the bright and awake eye theme, the NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Alhambra seems like the perfect product to create a brightening but polished eye look. The more pink shade would make a perfect highlight for the inner corners of the eye and the more gold/tan shade would look lovely swept across the lid - with a subtle slick of brown kohl liner and lashings of mascara, it could create the perfect, fuss free Spring eye.
Fresh and glowing skin screams Spring to me and the Laura Mecier Radiance Foundation Primer appears to be the perfect product to create a subtle glowing base. I've heard lots of good things about the Laura Mecier primers so this product has got me seriously lusting.
I adore peachy shades - especially for the spring. Peach shades just seem to suit my pale complexion which is why I kind-of think I need the Tom Ford Lip Colour Shine in Insidious. As well as having absolutely gorgeous packaging *swoon*, the shade itself is beautiful. I can't resist a shiny and sheer lip and this lipstick seems like the perfect formula for a fuss free but pretty lip. 

I've gone a bit crazy for matching nail and lip combos, especially after reading Vivianna's 'Matchy Matchy' blog post. Chanel Le Vernis in June seems like the perfect shade to compliment the Tom Ford Lipstick. We all know during spring pastel nails are a bit of a must, and this peachy shade seems like the perfect one. I'm on the look out for a bit of a dupe at the moment as I can't quite part with £18 for a nail varnish, even if it's Chanel. 

What are you lusting over this Spring?

Prom Snippets

A very picture heavy post, I know.
Hello strangers. I've been a bit of a bad blogger over the past two weeks and for that I can only apologise  I've been a busy bee and also on Saturday March 2nd it was my sixth form prom. I thought I'd share with you all some photos from the day as I had so much fun and I enjoyed being dressed up and feeling all girly for once.
I had my dress for a barganious £35 - I couldn't believe my luck. I love the dress itself - it was so comfortable and it made me feel really feminine  The sweetheart neckline makes this dress super flattering and makes me look like I have a tiny waist which I most certainly don't. I also love the soft and neutral colours scheme. 
I fell in loooove with my shoes. They're also really feminine but are kept modern by their chunkiness. They were kind-of painful to wear due to my awkward feet but I did manage to do the cha cha slide in them so that's a success right?

I've just got back into the swing of revising for my summer exams so I'm sorry if posting is a bit sparse on times. I'm trying to organise myself a little schedule so I'm posting at least once a week but I can't seem to ever keep to schedules so we'll see how that goes.
I'm currently so nervous as I have my first set of AS results tomorrow - I have 3 results in total (biol, maths, chem) and I'm so worried as I wasn't happy with the exams I sat. Is anyone else receiving results tomorrow and is as nervous as me?
