Falling Forward: A Girl & Her Lists

Link Love

Posted by in A Little Conversation

First up in the brand spanking new (to this blog anyways) Link Love category, the blogs! I’ve been on a bit of a hunt the last month or so, for more blogs to devour because a lot of the people I used to know I er, can’t remember the addresses for. (That’s bad, right?)

So, here are some of the newbies I’ve found that I’m really enjoying:

Nikki – www.ohfabulous.co.uk – Nikki is cool. Seriously.
Amy – www.wolfwhistle.org (okay, not a newbie, we are friends, but I like, love her)
Lacey – littlemissgemini.wordpress.com – Lacey is so sweet, I wish she blogged more tho ;)
orangette.blogspot.com – a fantastic food blog, by a couple who’ve just opened a pizza restaurant. Lovely!
Jules – blackbarbieexperience.blogspot.com – one of my favourite ladies, ever.

I have a big list in my feed reader that I wanted to write about, but honestly I’m pretty tired and I want to go to bed, but I feel like I should say hi to the two of you who are reading this on a semi regular basis. (if you are, please say hi back! :) )

Fringe Benefits

I’ve been a Benefit girl ever since a saw a friend’s blusher – kept in its own little box with an adorable brush sat snug inside. Genius! I usually wear 10 or Dandelion, but with my hair the crazy red colour it is Dandelion is just too pink, and my 10 has practically run out. So off I went, hunting something new, and I came back with Coralista (which I gather hasn’t been out for too long, I’ve certainly never seen it before).

It’s not exactly cheap at £22.50 per box, but each of my blushers has lasted over a year, so you get a pretty good run for your money :) I team it with a sweep of Bad Gal (the best mascara I’ve ever used) if I’m heading to the office, and a nice swatch of urban decay honey if I’m heading out on the town.

the eyeshadow is on sale at ASOS at the moment, and for just £7.75 I think I might snap myself up a few more colours :)
