My 12 Happy Months ~ January 2015 ~

At the end of each month I plan to do a round up of photos and happy memories. January has been recovering from Christmas & New Year, both mentally and financially, but there are so many little moments that get overlooked. Changes in Mia every day, a new word or phrase so here is what made me happy in January 2015...

Seeing the new year in with family, friends, fireworks & champagne.

My little Beauty, special times every single day with this one.
This months popular words and phrases; 
"Oooopsadaisy, I'm drunk!" when falling over..
The whole of the "I love you.." Barney song.
Favorite Toys ~ Doll's House & figures from Frozen, Sofia the First & Disney Princesses. 

Pretty winter flowers and sunrises.

Wedding Planning ~ January 6th ~ was spent getting back into my design work and coming up with invites for my Sister's wedding!

Mixed emotions for February...but lots of events and I'm determined to get the camera back out to record more of it!

What's in my Make-up Bag ?

Ok so, these are my current go to pieces. I have a box of make-up (addict!!) but I'm off on my holidays soon so these will be my every day items I'll be taking and bits I use every day. 

Smashbox ~ Foundation Primer, Lid Primer, Studio Skin, Halo Powder & Full Effects Mascara
BareMinerals ~ Brushes & Eye Palette
Sleek ~ Eye Brow Pencil & Brush
Bourjois ~ Liquid Eyeliner
No7 ~ Moisture Drench Lipstick in Highland Mist

Skin ~ 
Loving Smashbox at the moment and currently using the Photo Finish Primer which evens out the skin and makes it feel so soft. Followed by Studio Skin which gives a full coverage and really does last all day when worn with the primer and then to set I use their Halo powder which actually can be used as a foundation on it's own but I like to use just a small amount to set my make up. 
To give a little warmth in the tan lacking months I use Bare minerals warmth power too. 

Eyes ~ 
I've loved BareMinerals Eye shadow for the past year and it's still the one I use daily. The colours are really pigmented and used with either the BareMinerals or Smashbox Primer they last all day. I got this palette in July so you can see you need to use very little to get a smokey effect. 
Favourite mascara at the moment is Smashbox Full Effects. It's not heavy, not clumpy and gives great length. 

Lips ~ 
No7 Moisture Drench lipstick is my everyday go to. As the name suggests it's really moisturing - great for these cold winter days.
