Date Night Essentials

Hi Lovelies,

What lovely weather we are now having, it puts me in such a good mood and makes me want to actually do things! So Saturday night was date night and I don't think it matters if you are going on your first day or hundredth date with someone you always want to look your best and touch ups will be required. So here is the break down of what made it into my lovely new make up bag

 Lets start with the nail polish first as I am sure to most people this looks odd but trust me if you own a Chanel polish you know they are notorious for chipping, and there is nothing worst when one nail is smudged and you're having to clench your fist all night in the hope they don't notice! I wore the colour Holiday as I was feeling summary on Saturday. Next up my lipstick of choice for the night which is Illamasqua Immodest* a gorgeous pink which I will be doing a full review on soon. I'm not sure about you but I always have about 3 different lipsticks that collect in my bags so for me to only bring one out if pretty good going! Finally I packed Nars southbeach multiple I have had this a while but only started using it this week and really like it, it adds such a gorgeous sunkissed glow to the skin and it I know Millie Mackintosh really likes it! 

Now the biggest date night essential for me is the necklace, I think there is something so romantic about wearing your loved ones initials on a necklace it makes me think it is something that would of happened in the olden days! Plus at least with a necklace if you argue you can just take it off, haha I kid! Now I have wanted a necklace like this for such a long time and have dropped hints here there and everyone, sadly the boy did not get them at all but thankfully notonthehighstreet had my back and sent me this gorgeous necklace. I love it so much if something was to happen to it I would replace it in a heart beat, It looks good by itself and as a layering piece. Can I just say this is my honest opinion but notonthehighstreet is such a great idea, I spent hours trawling through it whatever key word I had in mind it had something relating to it, if anyone has a baby/needs baby gifts you should check out this website so many different and cute ideas!

I'm off to China town now for dim sum, what are you doing today? Also let me know what your date night essentials are :)

  9. The NARS multiple sounds lovely, Millie's always looking dewy yet flawless, can't wait to search some more reviews of this :) And Chanel holiday is such a go to Summer shade. Great post :)

  10. I love that makeup bag! I just purchased my first Illamasqua lipstick. In Eurydice. However Immodest was a close second. Likely will still purchase it. Do you find them to be very dry? What do you to make it easier to apply?
