My Recent Favourites.

My Recent Favourites - The Dena Edit

The one where I show you a few of my favourite things. 



My Recent Favourites - The Dena Edit

Urban Decay: Naked Heat Palette | £39.50
The palette everybody has been talking about, landed on my doorstep after I managed to bag it in the pre sale which happened early on in June. I was so excited about this palette, I am a massive fan of Urban Decay palettes, especially the Naked palettes and there's only one left in the collection I don't own - The original 'Naked Basics' and to be honest, I'm not quite sure why I don't already own it. Anyway, back on to the Heat palette, it's a gorgeous summer palette that is full of warm tone shadows - might I add that warm tones are my absolute favourite too? So there was no doubt in my mind that I wouldn't love this palette. It contains a mixture of both shimmers & matte shades so there's something for everyone. My favourites from the palette have to be; chaser (m), sauced (m), low blow (m) and lastly lumbre (s). If you're a makeup fan, or not. This palette is needed in your makeup bag/collection. 


My Recent Favourites - The Dena Edit

Back in June, I went to a party and for this party I bought the most amazing heels from River Island. I knew I wanted to team them with some dark denim jeans and a plain white top but wasn't sure at all, how I wanted my makeup to look. Then it hit me. I wanted to try and brave a red lip. I'd never in my life worn a red lip before - I'd tried and failed. They just didn't suit me, at all. However, I was willing to give it another go. I knew I loved the L'Oreal lip lacquers. I have another one in a nude shade, so I thought I'd try one of them in Red. Red Actually (204) is the shade I went for and boy did I love it. I got so many compliments on the night and on photo's I've posted on the Internet. I've worn it a few times since and I actually believe I've found the perfect red for me. 


My Recent Favourites - The Dena Edit

Frezyderm Sun Screen * | £17.50
My skin is something I have really been taking care of lately, I've realised just how important it is and how much care it needs. As part of my daily routine, I have been applying a sun screen to my face, which of course, has been factor 50 to ensure my face is fully protected by UV rays and yes I know, I live in West Yorkshire and we barely get any sun, but that thing can still cause damage behind clouds. Better to be safe than sorry. The one I have been using is one by Frezyderm and it is so light on the face and not sticky at all that is makes it perfect to use as part of my routine. It doesn't interfere with my makeup either which is a win, win situation for me. It's also matte, allows my skin to breathe and lasts for around 6 hours.

imPress Stick on Nails * | $7.99
Every so often, I fancy having my nails done. However, sometimes I cannot always get over to Laura who does my nails. Luckily, in my collection I have many of the imPress nails and I am just obsessed with them. They are the prettiest nails by far. However, I must admit, I never just use the self adhesive, I always use some glue, just so they last that little bit longer. For me, they are the perfect length and quick and easy to apply. 


My Recent Favourites - The Dena Edit

Toe Rings | £3.99
I know this is such a random one, but I have become obsessed! I saw Tily at work with a toe ring on and totally wanted/needed one. So off I went, browsing away and found some on New Look which were cheap enough to try but absolutely gorgeous too! I've been wearing it (the silver one) none stop and cannot wait to buy one that's a little more expensive so I can wear in constantly. I honestly love wearing them and it just adds a little something. It is not at all uncomfortable and I do often forget I am wearing it.

I have had Pinterest for a while now, but didn't really get it. However, when my Instagram account was deleted and I lost my Twitter I decided to start a fresh on there too. This time around I have really gotten into it and I find myself pinning to my boards an awful lot and browsing other peoples boards a lot too. My boards are quite varied and I pin all sorts of things over on there from cakes, to fashion to home inspiration. If you want me to check out yours, leave your links below and I will be sure to check them out. My favourites over on Pinterest have to be; Emma, Chloe & Jemma.

  2. It's always great to find the red shade that suits you isn't it. I suit darker reds myself. I like the sound of the suncream as most can leave you feeling greasy and sticky.

  3. The Naked Heat looks lovely, I was going to get it but I think I might go with the Violet Voss Holy Grail, decisions decisions ha ha. I need to pick up one of the L'Oreal lip paints, I like the bright pink but I'm too much of a wuss to go for it. I have quite a few pairs of impress nails but haven't tried them yet, I am definitely going to now, you've swayed me! I have followed on Pinterest, I love Pinterest, I get a lot of blog traffic from it, it's my second best site for blog traffic :) Brilliant post and I'm so pleased to see you're back lovely :) xxx
