Is it really wrong that I kinda feel like I’m already a little bit late with this video even though it’s only the 2nd of March? I think that’s so wrong, but I can’t help it! Actually the video was meant to go up yesterday, but then I remembered that Mother’s Day is around the corner. So I thought putting together a mothers day gift ideas post would make more sense!
Anyways, this monthly favourites video is a little bit longer than my last monthly favourites video but there were a lot more products to play around with last month, I felt a lot more experimental with (and worried about) my skin and stuff.
On this very sunny (but cold) Friday, I thought I bring a bit more color into my makeup than usual. What with my hair color I have been using a lot of varying shades of brown and black, but nothing very colourful. And you could probably argue that this still isn’t very colourful. That’s partially because the colours haven’t shown up that well in the pictures due to slight overexposure! OoooOOOoooooOpsies!

The day before yesterday I blogged about Soap & Glory taking the plunge into the cosmetics world with a wide range of makeup items such as blonzers, blushers, lip sticks and glosses, and much more. I gave you my review of the “What’s Nude” eye shadow palette – one of 3 palettes that Soap & Glory have put into stores.
I promised I’d give you a Face of the Day post using that palette, so here it is! Please note this was Wednesday’s FOTD – I’m sure that doesn’t really matter, right? And obviously, being a palette with neutral colours, this is a nude-type look.
