That “new makeup delivery” feeling…

I’m pretty sure most women feel the same. When you receive your parcel & literally can’t wait to rip it open, knowing that you are about to unwrap new makeup products!! 

Once opened, it’s then time to spend a minute or so just staring at the beauty of it all, before taking each product out, one by one & giving each individual item a moment of your time. After all, they deserve it! Then you line them all up, keeping them in their boxes for now. Obvs! You just want to admire them for a while, still in their unspoilt state with their boxes untampered. Clearly you need to take a picture as well. A couple of pics in fact, just so you definitely capture everything in the best possible arrangement! Of course, sharing the picture to every social media site you have, is the standard next step. Everyone needs to see what you’re seeing… It would be wrong, just wrong, not to spread the love! 

This is what I tell myself anyway. The real reason, I’m not gonna lie, is secretly hoping that all my friends are seeing the picture & feeling mega jealous of my new stash! Haha 😂

This is what happiness looks like… 🙌🏼


First post! 

Greetings from Planet Liz!

A little about me: I love makeup, skin care & all things beautifying. I’m a chocoholic (I actually prefer to think of myself more as a “chocolate connoisseur”). If being completely unlucky in love was an Olympic sport, I’d have the Gold medal! My two cats are the loves of my life (hardly surprising considering the previous sentence). Other loves include music, food (usually the “bad for you” kind), the Big Bang Theory, laughing until I cry and an occasional night out when I can wear my heels and let my hair down. 

Oh, and I’m lazy! Don’t get me wrong, I work full time & my house is always clean & tidy – however, when it comes to anything I have a “choice” with, I need it to be as easy as possible. For example, my star sign is Leo and true to form, I have the Leo mane of hair. Long & ridiculously thick. It’s such a chore when washing, blow drying and straightening takes a minimum of an hour, every time. So finding ways to cut this time down & not look like I’ve been dragged through a hedge and back again, means I’m more likely to do nice things with it. Rather than thinking “sod it” and just putting it up, wet, because the idea of it taking an hour literally makes me want to shave it off! Another example is makeup. I honestly love makeup & applying it, but anything complicated which takes extra time & eats in to my extra few minutes in bed every morning, can, with all due respect, get stuffed.  I prefer products which can be applied quickly & easily. None of these contouring pallets containing 17 different colours which need to be applied with precision & a spirit level. I would like to point out that I do in fact contour everyday! But it’s simple & effective. My kind of makeup. 

My plan for future blogs is to share all the things which basically make my life beautiful but with minimum effort. From hair & makeup to simply sharing my thoughts. 

Welcome to my world 🙂
