Happy 2nd Birthday vintag3r0se!

It only seems like 5 minutes ago that I was writing my first post yet here I am now having my 106th post up and marking my second year of blogging!

I love how versatile my little part of the internet is and how I can publish anything I like. I've published my travel diaries, different products that I love, things to do, goals that I have set myself and its great to be able to look back and see how I have changed even in the 2 years.

I know that many people say that they enjoy sharing their life and others being able to have a little insight but I enjoy seeing what I have been able to achieve. I am able to see the different places I have been lucky enough to travel to.

I really do love this blog as it is something that I have been able to create from scratch and not knowing what to do and then being where I am now and having to build up numerous posts and having something that I am quite proud of.

Thanks to those of you that do come back each week and read me ramble on about different things!

Hope you have a lovely week and see you next Sunday for yet another post!

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer

In terms of concealer, there is usually only one that I will think of and that is the 'Collection Lasting Perfection concealer'. I have been using it for years and use shades 1 and 2 for brightening and concealing redness.

At the end of last year, I decided that I was going to try the 'Maybelline Age Rewind concealer'. I'd heard many people talk very highly of it. I love the collection concealer but have always found it very thick for under the eyes and within seconds of putting it on, it had already creased under my eyes making me look even more tired than I did before. 

I have it in the shade Light and began only using it under my eyes but have began using it on redness on my face as it doesn't give the cakey look gives a fresh concealed look. I have been using this under my eyes as a base to conceal the dark circles and then adding a little bit of the Collection concealer in the darkest spot to help brighten my eyes and help me to look more awake.

The only problem that I have with this is that the sponge applicator on the top can't be removed and cleaned. It is fine when you first get the product as the sponge is brand new and you can distribute the product out under your eyes and even blend with it but once you have been using it for a few weeks, the sponge is full of product and it can only be using to get the product of the tube.

Have you tried the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer?

Weekend in London

Last weekend, I went to London with my boyfriend as part of celebrating my 18th. We travelled down on on Friday and stayed at the DoubleTree by Hilton Excel. I would really recommend the hotel! When we checked in, we were given a free warm cookie each and were able to go straight up to the room and unpack. The room was really nice and had a great view of London City Airport.

We tried to do as much sightseeing as we could without being too busy that we wouldn't appreciate what we were doing. There were a few things that we wanted to do which was go and see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Theatre Royal, go and have a look around Madame Tussauds because I have never been and go up The Shard at night and have a view of the whole of London. One of my favourite things we did was going up the Shard. The experience is amazing and the view is incredible. The staff go above and beyond to ensure that you are enjoying the visit.

We did a fair amount go shopping, walking and tube hopping. The weekend was amazing and already want to go back and explore different areas of London but might do it in Summer when we have warmer weather.

Have you been to London before? What would you like to go and see?

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows

For Christmas, I'd asked for some Makeup Geek eyeshadows after everyone has mentioned how great they are. I had Homecoming, Shimma Shimma and Twilight from the standard shadow range as well as Grandstand and In the Spotlight from the foiled range. I also asked for the palette so that I could put all of them together and prevent them from getting lost/broken.

I had a quick look at them and was amazed by the quality of the colour in each of the shadows. The pans are a generous size so you defiantly get your moneys worth! I then went on to swatch them and couldn't believe the pigmentation. I used Grandstand, Shimma Shimma and Homecoming to create a bronze, shimmer eye look and instantly loved it. Homecoming is the powder eyeshadow version of On and On Bronze by Maybelline which is a creme shadow and is my all time favourite eye product.

I honestly prefer the Makeup Geek shadows than my MAC shadows that I currently have as they blend much easier and have better pigmentation. I will 100% be buying more of these shadows as I am so impressed by the quality to say how affordable they are!

Have you tried any products from Makeup Geek?

2016 Summary

I did a post last year summarise some of my favourites things that happened that year and wanted to do the same again this year. I think it helps you to realise that the good times are there and memories are being there. I feel this is a great way to be able to see what has happened this year in a quick, short post.

Anyway, enough of the rambling!

I hope you had a wonderful year and Happy New Year!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed
