What's new?

Quite a lot actually.

Yesterday I picked up a fresh bottle of Face & Body foundation by Mac, I am still loving it! See my full review HERE.


This time I picked up the shade C3, instead of C4 as I am much paler at the moment *sigh* There is quite a big difference between the 2 shades, but as it's so sheer you can't really tell once blended. For reference I am NC30 at the moment instead of my usual NC35+ and C3 is a perfect match.


I joined a gym along with the rest of the nation this time of year, :) my aim is to feel fitter and look more toned, and if I lose a couple of kilos on the way, then great! I have also reverted back to my healthy eating throughout the week where I give myself a cheat meal on Saturday.

I purchased my final cushion for the bedroom which I got from John Lewis for half price. I have wanted this for AGES, but every time I went they were sold out, which turned out great as I didn't pay full price.


I got a new wardrobe which I am ecstatic about, I have all my dresses in this now with some trousers and jeans at the bottom, and some of my favourite shoes underneath. This means no more vacuum bags and I can see everything I have!



I am loving the new Sigma brush collection, it's called 'Make me up' and available in 4 colours. I have the purple version which is called 'Make me crazy'.



The great thing is that you have all of your essential brushes in a durable container which protects your brushes making it ideal for travelling and also transforms into two brush holders. Pretty neat!


What's new with you in 2011?

Ah I'm loving the Sigma kit! I really wanted it for a while but now I'm wondering whether I'd like that or a travel kit! :) I'm glad I've found another blogger who is NC30-35, that's what I am :)

I heard that sigma collection is fantastic. Also, I love the gym. It's like therapy for me. scientist have found running actually makes you a happier person. Nothing is really new for me. I'm getting a new dslr camera so I'm excited about that. New York Fashion week starts soon, so that's always exciting. Other then that nothing else

those brushes look awesome! Colour surely does make a huge difference in making the brushes visually appealing. I heart Mac face and body too and will pick up c3 once I run out of my c4 :)

I also recently started to use MAC F&B and love it. I also love MUFE F&B though so I alternate between the two. I wear shade N2 most of the year and N3 when I'm tanned.

Muhsine said...

@Hinna It's approx 10cm X 24cm

I love sigma brushes! These colored ones that are being posted everywhere look like they cross a fine line between cute and cheap looking. Since I don't own them I don't know.... how would you rate the appearance?
