Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar

It’s Christmas! Merry Christmas everyone! I’ve came back to blogging, as I have some helpful posts to share with you, about presents and outfits for this festive season, so keep in tune!

Over Christmas I was very blessed to receive a Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar! Click here to get your hands on one!
and I wanted to share how worth while it is, if it’s to get for yourself or your loved ones and maybe this will help with next year advent calendars. These calendars are very high end so I thought it would be good to go through the products with you as I love Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic.

So in this advent calendar, you have 12 boxes to open without any dates, so you can do as you please. I started roughly a couple a weeks ago and have just finished opening the final one, as well as finish the first product I received! Continue reading “Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar”

Pizza

So I did an experiment with making a pizza, which is quick, simple and gluten free and so this is pizza experiment number one!

For the dough base I used 1 cup of Buckwheat Flour, pinch of salt, 1 table spoon of curry powder and gradually added water until necessary, you want the dough not to be sticky. I flattened the dough onto tin foil with my hands.

Toppings Topping Toppings!

Tomato Puree
Chopped Ginger
Tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
Mushrooms

I placed the pizza in the oven for 10 minutes, whilst that was cooking I made some poached eggs to go on top.

To finish the pizza off, I added some spinach, avocado and sesame seeds.

This was so amazingly delicious! it only took 15 minutes and it is so simple and healthy!

Have a go!
Lots of Love

Keeping up with Amelia Taylor

So I haven’t been blogging recently as it has been very hectic but keep in tune as this weekend I have a few things coming your way!
So I hope everyone is having a lovely week, the weather is a bit gloomy but hey ho. So I thought I would share what I have been recently been up to in my Textiles course. So if you have seen my previous Textile blog post, then you would know that we have been exploring creating prints using the technique of screen print and now we are furthering these prints onto digital and further manipulating into more designs. At first I wasn’t enjoying creating new prints as my screen prints were finals and personally didn’t need carrying on but I got the hang of it and here we go!

Make-Course: gory wound

Well doesn’t this look appetising! Today in class we learnt how to create wounds using FX wax and sculpturing cuts into the skin.

Daily Make-Up Routine

  • Firstly I apply a Nivea Non – Oil Moisturiser using my hands in upward motions on my face and neck
  • I have oily skin, so to improve the base for the application of the foundation and to control the excess oil, I apply a Primer. I am using MAC – Prep & Prime (skin base visage) I have recently just purchased this product and falling in love already, it gives such a lovely soft texture, which has allowed for an evan application and allowing the foundation to stay in place longer.
  • For an every day look, I want a light coverage. In the Summer I used the NARS – Tinted Moisturiser (St Mortiz) but unfortunately started making me a little orange, so I am trying out MAC – Pro Longwear (NC25) this product is light weight with a sheer to medium coverage.  dmr03
  • To set the foundation, I have used MAC – Prep & Prime Transparency Finishing Powder I think this is key to setting your foundation, to last longer and the product is also transparent which will not apply an extra shade on top.

  • Eyebrows, I am awful at doing my eyebrows, but to make them look a little thicker and have more colour, I used MAC – eyeshadow (Handwritten) with soft brush strokes and finish it off with MAYBELLINE – Brown drama (dark Brown) dmr06fmr05
  • To warm Up my Face I use MAC – Powder Blush (Fleur Power) on the apples of my cheeks and MAC – Mineralize Skin-Finish Natural (Give Me Sun) lightly on my cheek bones and my forehead. With previously applying the transparency powder to set my foundation, it has allowed me have a natural blended finish with bronzer and blusher.fmr 06dmr10
  • I Love Eye-Liner, I think it makes me look more awake and bigger eyes. I use Liquid Eye-Liner from Rimmel – GLAM’EYES as well as a generous application of MAXFACTOR – MASTERPIECEMAX mascara.fmr 08fmr 11
