So I finally purchased my 2nd MAC lipstick to add to my slowly growing collection,  I decided to go for a classic red lipstick as I think that a Classic Red lip adds a touch of chic to most looks I also think that if you have a powerful red lip there is no need to go heavy with the rest of your makeup.
My original plan was  to treat myself to Chanel’s Rouge Allure but once on I found that it didn’t suite me at all,  I tried a few lipsticks by Chanel but didn’t fall for any of them so I ended  up in MAC.
After at least 45 minutes of trying on different shades I finally decided to go for Viva glam 1 which I’m very pleased with, however I now feel that I should have purchased the lip liner at the time? This is something I will definitely go back for when I get the chance.
What do you think about lip liners ladies, are the absolutely necessary when wearing red lipstick??
I’m really loving colourful lips at the moment and I’m looking forward to buying more, are there any others you suggest that I try out? are any of you ladies using lipsticks by Nars, I really want to know what they are like…..

Morocco Morocco...

I recently took a well needed  trip to Morocco to visit my mum and sister. I flew from Gatwick airport which has completely changed I couldn’t believe it!! the airport now has some of my favourite shops :-)  I  didn’t buy any clothes as I only travelled with hand luggage this time. I did pop into MAC and grabbed myself Viva glam 1 which I've been wanting for the longest time, another lipstick to add to my growing collection and a bottle of Chanel Chance.
 It’s been two years since my last trip and the country was even more beautiful than I remembered. My mum and sister live in a small town called Larache they live 15 minute's away from the sea which is simply amazing, you also have a wonderful view of the sea from the roof of my mothers roof, this is where we spent most mornings having a giggle over a pot of mint tea.

I spent most of the time in Morocco relaxing and spending quality time with mum. I  had a go at embroidery for the first time which was pretty cool, I’m still working on the makeup bag so I’ll show you it as soon as I’m done. we also had the most amazing lunches which were prepared by the cook, fresh fruit fish and lovely salads, Bliss!!
I didn’t really shop during this trip but picked up a few new head scarfs for the spring  and a beautiful real leather satchel for just £12.00 this offer was too good to turn down!!
I didn't take many pictures on this trip as the camera on iPhone is not working :-( 
Now I'm  back I'm feeling positive clear headed and ready to start new projects, with that being said have you seen the new Jewellery that has arrived in my shop?? check out Ultimate Collections in the side bar.
what have you all be up to over the past few weeks? Do you have any exciting new ventures underway??
