I hope everyone is looking forward to the lovely Easter Bank Holiday coming up! I know I am. As my mum tells me I'm too old for Easter eggs I thought I'd still get into the spirit with the new Easter Chocolate Indulgence collection from Nella Milano. The polishes make ideal alternative Easter gifts or you could just buy them for yourself as a bit of a treat. The collection includes Chesnut Road, Sizzling Sienna and Moon Whisper.

Chesnut Road is a chocolately, rich red, almost like red velvet in a bottle. Sizzling Sienna is the perfect deep nude, which works really well alongside Chesnut Road but if white chocolate is more your thing then you might like to opt for Moon Whisper, which is a pretty, delicate nude with a hint of pink. Moon Whisper is quite a thin polish so you'll need to really build up the layers. Sizzling Sienna and Chusnet Road both apply beautifully and only need a couple of coats.

As I've mentioned before, these polishes are £8.95 each so they're a little on the pricier side but so worth it. They're super shiny and they dry really quickly too, bonus!

The best thing is you can still enjoy the chocolatey goodness without the calories!

Have you tried Nella Milano polishes before? What do you think about the Easter collection?

One year into the revolution

Makeup Revolution 1st birthday

On Saturday Makeup Revolution celebrated its 1st birthday. Can you believe it? Over the past year the brand has really revolutionised the high street make-up scene and has become one of my favourite brands to use, work with and write about.

The range of products has gone from strength to strength and its created so many dupes for higher end brands as well as producing its own unique items. My bedroom is currently full of Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palettes, which are my absolute favourites and which I use on a daily basis. Not only are the products really great but they're super affordable aswell, perfect for people of all ages to pop in their baskets.

The brand is also super sociable and in touch with lots of bloggers. As a blogger I do have some contact with PRs and brands but none of them are as personal as Makeup Revolution. I don't know about other bloggers but there aren't many brands that just send me products at random, this one does, so it's really nice to know me and my little old blog are actually being thought about. I received the delicious cake pops (above) in the post on Saturday as well as a hand-written note to help celebrate the brand's birthday and it was just lovely to know that the people behind the brand thought it was worth celebrating with me of all people! To other bloggers this is probably a common thing but I've not found any other brand as friendly and helpful as this one. It really feels like there's personality behind the social media accounts and I really enjoy interacting with them.

So with that I wanted to dedicate a post to the brand and wish it a happy birthday, here's to many more!

Are you a fan of Makeup Revolution?

Sunday Summary #13

Sunday Summary

I can't believe it's Sunday again! The past week went SO fast and this week coming is only four days long, which is great but also bad because it means a day less to get everything done. I'm not quite sure what I'm doing on Good Friday, probably not a lot!

On Wednesday I had spin class again. Recently I haven't really been pushing myself hard enough so this week I made sure to up the resistance properly so I could really feel it. I think I did quite well and although it was super hard I still really enjoyed it. I have another class this week coming as well as my next crochet class. This week we're starting a new project, it's a 'crochet along' where everyone works on the same project, using the same pattern and doing it altogether in the class. We've seen the finished blanket we're going to be making and it looks SO complicated, not sure how I'm going to get on with it, eek!

This week my mum and dad got a new puppy!! Eeeek! She's so cute. She is an all white Border Collie with a few flecks of grey. They got her from Wales from really bad conditions, she is blind in one eye but my mum and dad didn't want to leave her so brought her home. We took her to the vets yesterday and she has a heart murmur and is really, really small for her age. The heart murmur could go away with age but the vet wants her to put on some weight. You can see some pictures over on my Instagram.

She's so teeny tiny, she looks like a little polar bear. She's so cuddly and playful and although she keeps bumping into things when she's walking around, she is settling in well. My mum and dad's other dog, Jasper, doesn't seem to mind too much so far.

So my week has pretty much consisted of cooing over the puppy. Later yesterday afternoon I popped to mum's again as my sister was round with the kids. They absolutely love her and want to cuddle her all the time! I expect I will get some more cuddles in on Thursday before crochet class! If you're ever in a bad/sad mood then cuddling a puppy or a cat works wonders!

Most of today has already passed and I've so far only hoovered and cleaned the bathroom. I'm going to attempt to take some blog photos this afternoon after demolishing my chocolate spread on toast, yum yum!

What have you been up to this week/weekend? Got much planned for next week? Let me know in the comments.
