Update - Week In Pictures #5

I thought I would do a chatty update post on what's been going on recently as well as sharing a few pictures, songs i'm loving and products i'm testing out. 
Food/Drink - I've been back into the healthy eating this month after too much chocolate being consumed over Christmas. I've been making my green smoothies (recipe here!) with my new blender and packing them full of spinach, very tasting and good for you. I've also gone back to Uni so i've been putting these Trek Protein Flapjack bars in my bag to keep me going. Again these taste good and are wheat and gluten free as well as not being full of rubbish. 
Fashion and Hair - I've been loving wearing black and white recently, especially stripes. To make the outfit not look as monochrome i've been adding my favourite checked shirt which I got a while back. I also had my hair cut and highlighted again, i've gone back to having it shoulder length which is so much easier to style. My hair has always been very fine, which is another reason why I prefer it shorter; when I saw the new L'oreal Elvive Fibrology Shampoo, Conditioner and Thickness Booster. The range is currently 3 for £10 in Boots which I think is a pretty good deal. Expect a review of these soon!
Skincare - I've been doing a bit of a mixing my face masks together to make super masks! My favourite combination is the Una Brennan Super Facialist Clay Mask mixed with the Origins Clear Improvements Mask, these too together to help with oil control and blemishes. 
Makeup/Beauty Purchases - There's been lots of new releases recently, my favourite has to be the Revlon Lacquer and Matte Balms, I picked up three the other day since Revlon is currently on 3 for 2, I can see these being a firm favourite. I also treated myself to the Dior Nude Skin BB Cream, i've heard great things about this so I can't wait to try it. I've been preffering more simple, natural makeup recently. I got a £5 off Space NK discount code so I decided to try the NARS Tinted Moisturiser as well! I've bought a few base products recently so a clear out may have to happen to make room for them! 
Moving - We have finally been given a moving date for the 6th of February! It feels like we've been waiting to move house for ages but things have finally started to come together. We're currently surrounded by boxes, included most of my makeup and beauty products being packed away ready for the move. I'm looking forward to doing to decorating, homeware and DIY posts once we move. I may go a bit MIA when we do move, hopefully we won't be without internet for too many days. 
TV Shows - The main show i've been watching recently is Sons Of Anarchy, I put off watching it thinking I wouldn't like a show about a biker gang but there is actual much more to it than that, i've been obsessed with it because it is such a great, well written and acted show. Girls is back for season 3 which i've been loving as well as Community. I've also started watching season 3 of Luther, why they stopped making this show I will never know, it is so good and Idris Elba is great in it!
Music - One of my favourite bands Warpaint came out with their new album this week and oh my is it good. These girls are so talented and I can't wait to see them live next month. I would definitely recommend giving it a listen. 

So that's what i've been up to lately, lots of things will be happening it the next few weeks, i'm going to try slow down on the beauty shopping since I will be spending my money and trips to Ikea! If you would like some house themed post let me know. What shows and music have you been watching/listening to recently? What new beauty releases are you going to be checking out?
