KYLIE COSMETICS KYSHADOW | THE BRONZE PALETTE

Anyone who knows me knows that I am OBSESSED with Kylie Jenner, I have the biggest girl crush on her - she is one seriously foxy lady! My boyfriend knows all to well how I much I crush on her and he seriously won Christmas this year. Alongside the Lip Kit in Kristen and plenty of other gifts, Tom brought me the Kylie Cosmetics Bronze Palette!!!

CAN WE TALK?


It's been a while since I last sat down and wrote a blog post. Around this time last year I said that I want my blog to grow up with me and I feel like I haven't achieved that yet. I'm going to be turning 26 this year and I feel like my blog is still the voice of 19 year old me.

It needs to become more adult, it needs to become an adult with me.

I'm just bored of the content I've been writing. I want to be able to talk about the things that I talk to my friends about - money, having babies, weight, periods, not owning a house, saving for a house, love, sex, men, work, the list goes on. When I scan over my blog posts from the past year I just feel bored and uninspired.

I remember being younger and being brave enough to write a blog post about my depression and having bulimia. I was so brave to do that and I didn't write it for anyone else but me. That's what I need to do going forward. It's very easy to get caught up in numbers and compare yourselves to others and by doing this I've felt like I'm only blogging about things to stay "relevant" rather than write about what I actually want to.

Don't get me wrong, make up and skincare is my passion and I will continue to write about it. I just want to be able to write about things that are actually happening in my life.

Tea An Toast is my corner of the internet, it always has been and it will continue to be. I need to remember that it is mine and it's where I can talk about whatever I want. That is the reason I fell in love with blogging in the first place...

THE LEOPARD PRINT BOOTS

I am absolutely obsessed with these Leopard print boots from New Look at the moment!! They're a bold statement for me as pretty much all of the boots I own are black. I brought these when sitting on a sun lounger in Spain (thank god for free wifi and the ASOS app) and was a little worried they would be too "out there" for me.

VANITY PLANET ULTIMATE SKIN SPA SYSTEM

I have had an electronic facial cleansing brush on my wishlist for about a year now. I've heard really good things about them but I couldn't justify spending over £100 on one. I've been saving up my Boots points all year trying to get enough points to purchase a Magnitone one.

I saw this video by Sharon Ferrell the other day and she was talking about the Vanity Planet Ultimate Skin Spa System. I hadn't heard of this brand before and hadn't seen much about them. I read some reviews, watched some more videos and they seemed to have some really good reviews.

HALLOWEEN 2016

I don't really remember being into Halloween that much when I was younger. I remember going to a Halloween party that a neighbour threw, but I don't remember being overly bothered by it - my parents might disagree but I just don't remember it being a big deal in my house. My dad would decorate the porch each year and I remember having trick or treaters come to the door. Seeing what people were dressing up as was exciting.
