Happy New Year! LOTN and my new tattoo!

Happy New Year, one and all! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Years – mine was awesome. We had a Murder Mystery party last night, swapped Secret Santa presents and proceeded to get rather tipsy. 2011 didn’t really do it for me, so I’m looking forward to this year!


Here’s my look from last night – I didn’t really want to do the traditional all-out glitter look, so I, er, didn’t.







Eyes: Lid, crease and highlight shades from Sleek Storm Palette. Waterline, Kiko Longlasting Stick Eyeshadow in 10. Lashlines, Illamasqua Liquid Metal in Superior. Upper lashline, MAC glitter in Reflects Black.
Cheeks: MUA Blusher Shade 2, Accessorize Baked Blusher in Pretty Pink
Lips: Barry M lipliner in 102, Hard Candy Glossaholic in Lush

I loved this look – gutted it was dark by the time I finished it, as I couldn’t get a decent eye closeup.

I can’t be bothered to do a whole post of all the lovely stuff I got for Christmas, but here are a few goodies that I got! I also got a lovely pair of boots from my fiancé which will be in an OOTD very soon.

Betsey Johnson octopus from my sister! HOW CUTE IS HE?!

Iron Fist

Iron Fist ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’ shoes from my Mummy and Daddy. (Ha ha, you have to look at my feet!)


And my Christmas present to me, a Stay Beautiful tattoo! It’s on the inside of my upper left arm.  It didn’t hurt too bad and only took about 20 minutes to boot! And yes, it *is* my blog name, but I didn’t get it because of that. I named my blog for my favourite Manic Street Preachers song. If you like your men covered in paint and paying guitars, you’re welcome:
