April Wishlist

Xen-Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe
The short spurt of sun we had a little while ago, which is now long gone, had me running to my Dove Summer Body and my St Moriz. After a long old winter embracing my pasty hue I forgot how good a tan makes you feel. I've never really branched off into 'high end' fake tans and I think it's about time. I've heard nothing but good reviews on Xen-Ten products as a whole, but this one seems to stick in my mind.

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow
I am seriously loving this new generation of foundation think Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua and Jemma Kidd Light as Air. I once was a full-coverage fiend but I have been well and truly converted to a lightweight more natural finish. This is the next I want to tick off my list.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector
I'm gonna throw it out there, I'm not a 'gloss' person. So why on earth do I want this? Purely because it's raved about in the beauty community, comes in gorgeous colours and promises moisturisation. I've found myself skipping lipstick in favour of a balm lately. I've been switching between wanting the Nude one and the Apricot one. Which do you prefer??

LUSH Catastrophe Cosmetic
This is hands down the best face mask I have ever used, and I'm craving it's blueberry goodness. If you haven't tried it, pop in and get a sample because it is amazing. That is all I need to say.

ASOS Patent Watch
I have been eyeing up this watch for as long as I can remember. It's nude, patent and gold. Screams 'I will go with everything' but doesn't have anything too blingy about it.

Blistex Med Plus
How has no one ever told me about Estee from Essiebutton? Well, anyway, I have literally been watching the backlog of her videos for days (entirely creepy I know), and I've noticed she is in love with this lip balm. I'm a firm supporter of Carmex but a change is as good as a rest, as they say (or is this just my Dad?).

ChloƩ Eau de Parfum
Most perfect Spring-Summer time scent. I don't know why I haven't bought this already because it's one of those perfumes that I always spray in Boots/Debenhams. You guys do that too right? And how stunning is the bottle?

ASOS Fine Cross Bracelet
Dainty bracelet are really catching my eye at the moment, as is gold. This paired with the nude, patent watch, amazing.

Sorry this was such a rambly post! I haven't blogged in ages and I feel like I've just let out 1 month's worth of blogging in one post. Haha! If you've tried/have any of the things on my wishlist please let me know what you think :)

Oh and ever since the new blogger interface came in (which I hate by the way) I've been much prefering using bloglovin' so definitely come and follow me on there!

Still alive!

So... long time no see right? I feel so out of the blogging loop, it's been a good few weeks since I last posted! I've been doing so much overtime at work recently because if you follow me on twitter (@ntlieread) you know that I've recently written off my car *applause* so I'm in need of some new wheels! I thought I'd just post some photo's of what I've been up to since I've been away, I warn you now, this will be photo heavy.

The damage to my poor car ~ Vodka jellies to start off the night ~ Starbucks spelling fail, Nataily? ~ Surprise tickets to X Factor tour from the bf ~ Dean likes Coco-cola? ~ Most delicious burger from Frankie & Benny's ~ Ice cold Magners in the sun ~ Tiny can of Pepsi Max ~ Best sweets ever ~ Standard Sunday afternoon ~ Creme Egg McFlurry ~ Tuna salad, nom ~ Tiramisu

So apparently, apart from crashing my car... I've been eating? Ha! I was driving a long the bypass and my tyre blew - spinning off the road at 70mph was the scariest thing that ever happened to me, but I'm extremely lucky that no one else was involved and I had escaped with nothing but a graze on my shoulder. As well as having a hero of a boyfriend who came to console me. I hope everyone has been okay and hopefully my blogging mojo will be back!

Follow me on twitter (@ntlieread) and Instagram (natalielinsayread) because I am always updating on there!
