Sunday Snippets '14




Guess what everybody - Sunday Snippets is back for 2014! 
For those of you who don't know, Sunday Snippets is a place where I post just a couple of snippets from my week each Sunday. These snippets can be anything - ranging from new purchases to outings and explorations! 

Snippets From My Week:

1. My favourite thing about this week was purchasing a new lipstick that I had been wanting for so long. Any girl will know that buying new makeup is the best, and it's even better when the makeup is faultless. A while ago I bought Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipstick in the Sugar Plum shade which you can read about here. Although this was a great lipstick and still one of my favourites, I did want a lipstick that was a few shades darker and with less of a shimmer. So, while on a small spree the other day I decided to treat myself to Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipstick in shade 128 Starry-Eyed. I bought it for just £4.99 from my local pharmacy. 

    
   


The shade is absolutely perfect and exactly what I was looking for! The lipstick has a soft, matte texture that glides smoothly and evenly onto the lips. The dark shade stays on for hours and is perfect for nights out. 
This is my little lipstick photo shoot done by Oscar - sorry about the rubbish lighting, it's a dark and rainy Sunday here in Wales! 

   


2. I currently have an obsession with candles, and my absolute favourites are Yankee Candles. Haven't heard about them? Visit them here
Yankee Candles are American candles that have been gracing the UK for a long time now, and they smell absolutely delicious! With over 150 scents to choose from, you will never get tired of their gorgeous smells, and there are so many to try!
Over the past few months my room has been filled with Yankee Candles and smelling lovely. My favourite scents are Champaca Blossom and Pink Dragon Fruit. They are very floral, feminine scents and I can't get enough of them - be sure to try them out! 

 I also have a 'Lemon Lavender' sample which I bought yesterday. I love the gorgeous purple shade and the smell is delicious! The candle smell is very strong smelling when lit which, in my case, is good as I love strong smelling candles. How cute is my Yankee Candle tea light holder?! I picked it up for just £2.99 and it's the perfect size for little samplers. 


I'm keeping it short and sweet today as I have lots of college work to do and also a big roast dinner with my dad later! I hope you've all had a lovely, relaxed Sunday.
