Give me your requests!

I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front lately and it's mostly because I haven't had a lot of time but it's also because I'm a bit lacking in inspiration at the moment.

Seeing as I've gotten myself into a bit of a blogging rut, I thought I'd put it to all of you to see if you had any requests on products you wanted reviewed, looks you wanted to see or any how to posts etc.

I also wanted to know if anyone would be interested in reviews of makeup books. I love buying makeup books but I found it really hard to find reviews on them so let me know if you'd like me to start doing some.

Also for all you bloggers out there, how do you balance work and blogging? Do you have a specific day of the week you do your posts or do you just blog when the mood takes you?

I'd appreciate any feedback/suggestions so please leave me a comment below :)


  1. I would love any help you can give in finding a the right foundation. I have oily areas (forehead, nose) and large pores (cheeks). I've tried Covergirl Queen collection, but I still feel oily all day. Help! :)

  2. Yes reviews of makeup books would be awesome :D Honestly unless I'm feeling inspired I don't blog, sometimes I blog a lot sometimes I blog once or twice a week, depending on my mood. Just do what makes you happy so it doesn't become a chore :)

  3. I would love to see an eye make up look with some orange in it! :)

    Also, reviews of make up books would really be helpful, there are a lot out there and not all of them teach you/inspire you to the same extent (yes, I bought a LOT of duds!)

    As for managing blogging, I usually do it in bits and pieces. I may do a lot of swatching and photographs on one free afternoon and then write the actual post later or vice versa. But since you do a lot of looks, I'm not sure how that helps! Sorry :(


  5. TwentyTwo: I'll definitely give it a go! I've got very similar skin so I'll do a post on some of my favourite foundations and hopefully they work for you :)

    Jade: Thanks for the feedback :)

    I always just blog when I feel like it but the way I've been feeling lately, it seems like if I don't set some sort of routine I just won't get many posts done.

    I think I'll start a monthly makeup book review series of posts.

    Ki: Lol I've been making requests of other bloggers for EOTD's with orange in them too :D I'll definitely try one very soon! Is there a particular type of look you want to see the orange incorporated in (bright, smokey, work friendly etc.)?

    I've bought so many duds too! They sound so great but then they arrive and they're just disappointing. I definitely have some faves though so I'll post up reviews on them.

    I think I'll have to start doing what you do and just take photos one day but then write the post up later. Thanks for the suggestions :)

    Anonymous: I've actually already done an eyebrow post but I haven't done one just using powder so I might give it a go. Thanks for the suggestion :)

  6. PROM MAKE-UP! I am in need of some awesome ideas. Lol.

  7. Bright and smokey both sound great! Either one would be good :)

  8. Rach: Prom makeup sounds like a fun idea! What colour dress are you wearing so I know what type of looks to put up.

    Ki: Cool, I'll try out a few looks for you :)
