Well blogosphere, I've been missing you. Apologies for my absence everyone. My excuse? I've moved continents and have just been generally trying to sort my life out.

So here I am, in merry old London town, sitting, thinking that I miss writing on here. I know this is a makeup blog, so here is just an update on some makeup-ey things I've been doing since I arrived in London.

I FINALLY made my way to the IMATS that took place in London, with a disgustingly painful knee injury and all! Nothing was stopping me from getting there. I got to see two of my favourite beauty YouTubers in the flesh, the lovely Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter and british beauty Ruth from A Model Recommends. A highlight for me though was watching the amazing makeup artists transform people in real time right in front of my eyes. The things that they created were incredible and....ah no words...let the pictures do the talking here!

It was an awesome weekend, but not the nicest time for my bank balance. However I did make some important purchases with great savings, but that's a separate blog post altogether.

Here is a happy snap of the makeup table from the set at the Harry Potter Studios over here too. Take note, lots of MAC, Laura Mercier and Simple skincare.

I've done my fair share of makeup shopping since I arrived in the UK (high-five for cheaper stuff!) and I may have even gone a little mad. But now that the novelty has worn off, I'm finding it easier to control myself. And in my down time, of course, I have been playing with all my princess goodies!

And, as always, creating new looks for my Instagram photos. It's my main love.

I'm hoping now to plan my weeks so I can get back into the full swing of 'Canvas Bag' and I'm totally grateful for the patience everyone has shown during my absence on here. It feels good to be back!
