Never before has there been more excitement about the name of a product. Soap & Glory’s whimsical packaging and slogans never fail to put a smile on my face. The smile was much needed the past week as I’ve been feeling very sorry for myself. Curling up in the foetal position for most of the hours of the day due to illness is not my ideal way of spending time. I’m pleased to announce that I’m on the track to recovery now though (phew)!
This feels like the weirdest post ever to write. I can’t quite believe that it’s been 1 year since the birth of Little Bit Soph. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the support. I still can’t get my head around the fact that there are thousands of you guys reading my pointless ramblings about lipsticks and other nonsense. I really appreciate every click, comment and like & reading all of you guys posts and opinions. Deciding to start a blog was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, and I’m so excited for more to come in my blogs second year.
There’s nothing else to say really, apart from that if you’re reading this, I love you lots!
I’m very excited to introduce my first ever guest poster on LittleBitSoph! It’s something I’d love to do every fortnight/month so if you’ve got any ideas or want to be featured in the future, please tweet me @LittleBitSoph. Today’s guest post will be on inspirational activist Malala Yousafzai and is written by one of my favourite bloggers Emily. It’s my pleasure to hand you over to her now, make sure you guys comment below some nice feedback to make Emily smile :).
There’s nothing quite like a Boots order arriving on a rainy morning. (Especially when it comes in the form of five mini nail polishes in a cute little house.) Metallic shades have hit the runways hard this Autumn/Winter, which is a trend I’m particularly drawn to. I couldn’t say no when I realised Ciaté released this charming gift set, which allows you to tap into the metallic trend without having to splurge on a whole new wardrobe.
The transition into the colder months is very bitter-sweet for me. I absolutely love Summer and it’s hard not to smile when the sun is shining. Despite this, there are so many things that I love about October that I’m not feeling too sad about the departure from sunshine. Halloween is nearly upon us and I’m already addicted to the Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Lattes. I’ve also been loving working Autumnal colours into my wardrobe and make-up looks. Dark vampy lipsticks paired with muted faux-fur accessories in the backdrop of the crisp autumn leaves is a beautiful picture indeed.

Gel eyeliner. Two words that used to provoke so much fear in me I’d want to rock silently in a corner. It seems like the biggest faff ever to use a brush and little pot to apply eyeliner (and as a bit of a make-up newb I’m pretty terrible at using liquid liner in the first place). If someone had told me that I’d be using it as a part of my daily routine I wouldn’t have believed them.
Despite my initial concerns over gel liner, I have been completely converted. I have entered into a love affair with the Bobbi Brown Long-wear Gel Eyeliner and can safely say that nothing else in my stash quite compares.
As much as I drool over countless palettes (and own a fair few that I don’t even use), I always find myself coming back to these two. I’m not the best at applying eyeshadow – and at times my attempts at a smoky eye look like I’ve been in a fight. Despite this, the shadows in these palettes have such a creamy and blendable texture that are really easy to work with. If you’re first getting into wearing eyeshadow, or just find it difficult to apply, these neutral shades are the perfect starting point.
