This is the first Tumblr Inspirations! In this series I am going to post a bunch of photos from Tumblr that I really like. It could be pictures of places I want to go to, food I want to try or eat, jewellery I want to buy, etc... So let's start!
I am slightly obsessed with handcreams. I love buying new ones and not using the old ones... (oopsie). But I have extra dry skin, so I'm allowed! Here is my collection:
Atrixo Moisturizing Cream (3/5) - This was only £1. I bought this because I desperately needed a hand cream. It smells ok. Just like a normal body cream, and it dries pretty quickly. It doesn't leave my hands moisturized for long though.
Yardley Nourishing Hand & Nail Cream in 'English Rose' (2.5/5) - This. Smells. Amazing. Not everyone is going to like the smell of this, but I certainly do. It smells like dried roses. For the actual hand cream though... not so good. My hands stay oily for ever and I really don't like that. But the smell, the smell!
Cheri L'amour Hand and Nail Cream (4.5/5) - This hand cream is my favourite out of my collection. I got this from my best friend last year on my birthday and I still have it because I don't want to finish it! It smells like heaven and sinks in so extremely fast. It leaves my hands really soft and moisturized.
Palmer's Concentrated Cream (1.5/5)- This moisturizes my hands a lot, but it makes them really oily. It smells alright, but the smell isn't very fascinating or anything.
Soap & Glory Body Butter (2/5) - This cream also makes my hands really oily! I can never find creams that don't do that! But I guess for winter it's okay because my hands are extra EXTRA dry. It smells incredible. I prefer the Hand Food Hand Cream though.
This tag looked pretty interesting so, I thought I'd do it. Maybe you could get to know me a bit more! Greed: What’s your most expensive beauty item?
My mum bought a MAC loose powder which I use, not exactly sure how much it cost, I'm guessing around £20 - £30. I bought a MAC 217 brush which was £18.
Wrath: What item do you have a love/hate relationship with?
The MAC lipstick in 'Angel'. Sometimes I really love it, but sometimes I just think it looks so bad on me. I don't know why!
Gluttony: What brand takes up most of your collection?
Probably Rimmel London, I have around 3 mascara's from Rimmel... so that says a lot. But their mascara's are quite good!
Sloth: What product do you neglect the most due to laziness?
Probably foundation, my skin usually looks okay so I only ever wear it when I have a lot of redness/spots. But it takes so long to apply and you need the right kind of brushes, etc.
Pride: What product gives you the most confidence?
Definitely mascara. I look totally different if I don't have any mascara on, it just opens up my eyes. And it makes me look prettier. Hmm.
Lust: Which item is top of your beauty wish list?
The Benefit Powder Blush in 'Coralista'. It's so expensive but I need it! Ahh!
Envy: Which makeup product/look is great on others but not on you?
Again, probably MAC's 'Angel' lipstick, gosh I just can't decide whether I like this lipstick or not!
P.S. Everyone that reads this should go check out Beth (The Blonde Blogger) because I really like her blog and she's amazing. Also, I tag her to do this tag!
I spent 3 days in Brighton with my parents and brother. We went to stay at my parents friends house, where my best friend also lives! Here are some photographs I took (click on the pictures to enlarge them):

(Excuse my goosebumps, it was cold 'kay?)

Today I am going to show you 4 plum-coloured lip products. I am a massive lover of plum lip sticks and glosses, I think they really suit me! And just generally, they are gorgeous. Here is my collection:
