Chilworth Manor and current make up

Hi everyone, Hope everyone had a lovely Valentines day/weekend!:)  I apologise that this post is so delayed.. I've been incredibly busy as I have to prepare for a trip to Paris next week on a University trip.

For those of you that don't know I am currently in a relationship, and have been for over a year and a half now. This is my boyfriend, Christopher. He will probably dislike the fact that I've put pictures of him on my blog, but oh well... 
 I'm not entirely sure why I decided to photobomb the picture above ...

For the Valentines weekend we stayed in Chilworth Manor for the weekend, it was a great weekend; Chilworth manor is so beautiful and scenic. We even saw deers hopping around the grounds! It was an incredibly relaxing weekend.. the leisure facilities were so much fun and after using the steam room/sauna I feel as though I have undergone a detox and feel brand new!
Best of all, the food was incredible! We had a four course meal at the restaurant in the hotel. I wish I had taken photographs of the food as it looked as good as it tasted.

Here are some photographs:

He even became friends with a Weimaraner named Lola, she was beautiful!

It's been a long time since I made a post regarding my current make up routine, so I've decided to write one today!

I have stopped wearing foundation as I find my skin isn't really bad, and sometimes when I wear foundation more often, it tends to get worse.

I'm still using the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer as I hate the dark circles under my eyes :( as I have a fairly awful sleeping pattern. This concealer is probably the best one I have ever used, it quite literally wakes you up by brightening the entire under eye area. It is great value for money at £4.99

I am in love with the Kate Moss lipstick range by Rimmel, my favourite colour is 'kiss of life' (111), a vivid and bright red. £4.99
Another lipstick that I seem to be using a lot at the moment is L'oreal Diamantissime in Fuschia which was free in the L'oreal Christmas pack. It is such a lovely colour and the lipstick has tiny sparkles which really brightens up a look (Free)

I'm currently obsessed with my BADgal mascara in brown, it thickens my lashes perfectly and adds so much volume. (in a gift set). As always I still stand by the Rimmel Khol eye liner, it's probably the best eye liner that I have ever used and is a must have at £2.99! It's such a staple item for me and I always seem to repurchase this one. I have tried other more expensive eye liners but always seem to go back to this one

I may be hosting a giveaway for the mascara soon, so keep your eyes peeled!! :)
