If you have been a bit slack on the old blog reading (I know I have; my Bloglovin' feed is over flowing with new posts for me to read), here is your chance to catch up on some posts you might have missed over the past week on CM. As it was the end of the month and we're now welcoming in February today (craziness), there was the usual monthly round up posts; Empties, Instagram and Most Loved, as well as some reviews and product features also.

We've almost into February, so to round out the first month of 2015, here are a few things I really loved during the month. I found it quite hard to really nail down on the products that I was into, due to the fact that I had a big clean out and I've been making an effort to use different products each day I put on makeup. But these few items have been stand outs from the month of January...

January kicked off as quite an exciting month, mostly down to the fact that I got an iPhone 6, and it was love at first sight! Because of that my Instas have improved a lot in the overall photo quality compared to my previous phone (Samsung Galaxy S3; still a great phone, don't get me wrong!), and I love the quality of the camera and the phone in general! So here are my Instagram's from January...

The first month of 2015 is now coming to an end, and I bet like most people, I still can't get out of the habit of writing 2014 for everything! But anyway, with the end of the month always comes Empties and this is a feature that I will be continuing with this year, because it's a great way to review products I've used right to the very bottom; or alternatively, have thrown out because they were awful slash really old. This month there is a lot more makeup items than other months, as I've been really making an effort to use what I have, and I also had a bit of clear out (but more on that at the end of the post).

I won't lie to you; I'm easily influenced when it comes to beauty buying. One rave review by my favourite blogger or Youtuber will have me straight onto a particular website and ordering that item right away. Not only that, but I love trying out new makeup products, especially lipsticks! So with Makeup By Alli's swatch and review video of these NYX Butter Lipsticks, I was practically sold on them as soon as I watched it. It has taken me a while to actually get my hands on them though, but thankfully a couple of months back Cherry Culture had their annual 40% sale (see the haul here) and had a lot of the shades in stock (half the time they were all out of stock), so I got my hands on five of them...

Over the past couple of weeks I have been giving my makeup collection a big old sort through and changing things out from my 'everyday' stash to give some love to other items that may have got a bit neglected. While doing this, I came across this MUA Baked Eyeshadow Trio that had not had a lot of use, but that quickly changed when I realised how nice it was!

We all know I am a lover of eBay for finding super cheap gems in my series Cheap eBay Finds, so when I was contacted by Born Pretty Store to feature a few items I was excited to try the website out and see what I could find. It is very similar to eBay, with an emphasis on nail supplies, and beauty things, including makeup items (that aren't all just disgusting knock offs). I was asked to pick some things to try and was also given a discount code for you all to use that will be at the end of the post.

This week was a little bit more special than the rest on CM as I celebrated a pretty big milestone in my blogging career (can I even call it that?), but the rest of this weeks posts remained to the norm. There was an unboxing of a particularly different sort of subscription box, a haul and of course, some product reviews as well.
