Chapter One

Call me strange but I think the idea that every year is a book, every month is a chapter and every day is a page is pretty cool, so that's the idea behind the post title.. in case you were wondering. I love taking photos, ask most of my friends.. It snowed recently and I was constantly taking pictures (but that's for another post). I've decided that each month I will share with you guys my favourites. I think it would be great if you could get involved, if you have instagram then post your favourite picture of the month. Tag me in it (@emsirose) and add #emsirose (if you ever recreate something that I share with you on here then add the hashtag so I will definitely see it!) so I can see them. I also restarted my instagram feed, because I didn't like the way it looked, so below are the first three pictures, which you can click to see my feed. :)

This or That?

I've seen this tag floating around recently, and I thought it would be fun to do! I think it's a great way to get to know me better.. I've considered doing 50 facts but that;s sooo many!! I would love to get to know you guys more, i'm going to read all the comments so answer some of the questions down there!
MAKE UP BLUSH OR BRONZER? I don't wear either, but I have more blushes. LIPGLOSS OR LIPSTICK? Lipstick, although I love glosses they can be sticky and not long lasting! EYELINER OR MASCARA? Mascara, I wear it more FOUNDATION OR CONCEALER? Concealer, Foundation is to heavy on the skin.
NEUTRAL OR COLOURED EYE SHADOW? Neutral, I feel more comfortable wearing it. PRESSED OR LOOSE EYE SHADOW? Pressed, as I don't own any loose eye shadows's.
BRUSHES OR SPONGES? Brushes, I think they're best!
NAILS O.P.I OR CHINA GLAZE? O.P.I, I have never used China Glaze. LONG OR SHORT? Short, although long look elegant.. they can get in the way. ACRYLIC OR NATURAL? Nat…

My Evening Routine | Collab with ErmHeather

Hello! Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my previous two collabs! It's time for part 2! Today I am doing my evening routine and Heather is doing her morning routine (click here to read), enjoy! When I arrive home, I usually have a snack. Whilst doing this I check my social media: only Instagram though! After relaxing I walk the dog or start on any homework I have.. boring but essential! Then I eat dinner.. my favourite part! Haha. Tonight I had giant couscous, it's a great alternative to pasta: I usually ass some olives, tomatoes and cucumber. If I have any more homework then I complete this, or if I am lucky enough to have nothing I watch TV or plan a post! Finally I was my face, I start with my Garnier Miscellar Cleansing water, which is only a recent purchase of mine. I shower in the evenings and wash my hair every two nights, to help growth but also to keep it clean! (I might do a hair care routine.. if you want one?!). In the shower I wash my face using the Ga…

FAVOURITE MOVIE? omq.radicals I couldn't possibly choose one! I am a massive Hunger Games fan and love all of those films. I also recently saw Back to The Future 1 and 2: they were amazing!
WHAT DO YOU USE AS A MASCARA? pastel_georgia I don't use mascara because my lashes are naturally long, dark and grow upwards but if I do then I wear the Maybelline Great Lash. (click here for a revie…

My Morning Routine | Collab with ErmHeather

I am super proud to announce that this is my first collab! It's with Heather from ErmHeather (click here) she's new to blogging and it would mean a lot if you could go over and check out her blog. This is a two part collab: part 2 will be up in a week!
The first thing I do in the morning is go into the bathroom, to complete my skincare routine. In the morning I like to keep it simple as your skin repairs over nights so using harsh chemicals isn't going benefit you. I start by splashing my face with warm water to remove any excess oils, then I use the Clarins Daily Energizers wake-up booster on a cotton pad. I finish by moisturising, I am currently using the Simple Rich moisturiser. You don't need lots and it leaves your skin feel nourished. After that I get dressed. I will just wear whatever I feel like that day. Then I go downstairs and eat! It's my favourite part of the morning. This morning I decided to have three cream crackers with nutella and chopped bananas.…

A Natural Make Up Look

I don't wear make up everyday, this is because I think it's a pain to remove. This is just a natural look which you can probably get away with anywhere, enjoy!
THE BASE I don't wear foundation as I find it too heavy on my skin, so I just use concealer or a BB cream. I use the BB cream like a concealer at the moment, because I have run out of concealer. I just apply it under my eyes and on any blemishes. My current BB cream is by Rimmel London, it's cheap and probably not the most long lasting or best on the market. I then use the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, it's amazing. I dust it lightly over my nose and chins. Under my eyes I use some of the MUA undress your skin highlighter, as it brightens and is super subtle.
EYES AND EYEBROWS I am not crazy about my eye brows.. Oops. I just fill them in with a powder and go through them with a Miss Sporty Mascara in Clear 101. I just a dust a light colour on my eyelids, this is currently a colour from Collection Work the Colou…

Happy 1st Birthday Emsi Rose!

I can't quite believe it! I published my first post a year ago today, oh how time flies! As I said in my Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015! post I have been blogging for a year and it really doesn't feel like it. Now this isn't going to be a long post because I don't want to bore you, but I do just want to say thank you (because apparently I am at an awards ceremony..). Thanks to everyone who has clicked on this little page and made it grow into something I can't even begin to explain, thanks to those who have liked my little world so much that you have follow it in some way. Thank YOU and my nearest and dearest: family and friends. Happy 1st Birthday Emsi Rose! Lets Celebrate!

Three Little Lush Items..

If you are a returning reader to my little blog then you might know that I love a sweet scented shop called Lush! (Hello, to anyone new!). When I smelt the sweet scent and saw the pink Lush Christmas packaging I let out a squeal of delight! I was so happy and super excited to share with you what I think of these three bath bombs! (I need to calm down, look at the amount of exclamation marks I'm using...)
Space girl has a gorgeous scent and looks super pretty. I love the shade of blue and the little red sparkles. I have to admit I was hesitant about using this bath bomb because I thought it might have more glitter inside (which gets everywhere!), but I had no reason to be. It turned my baths water a gorgeous shade of purple and had a sweet, fruity scent and I listened closely to hear the crackling of the out of this world popping candy, I loved it! 
Father Christmas is a Lush Christmas classic, which I sadly hadn't tried before. Wow! It shocked me. I dropped it into my bath an…

Snow Covered Fields.

After Christmas the snow began to fall. Sadly, where I live the snow only fell lightly, similar to when you sieve icing sugar on top of cupcakes. Luckily that weekend I went to visit family and they had a lot more snow than us. The thick fallen snow made towns look like the front of Christmas cards. I love all the fun that snow brings: building snowman, making snow angels and having snowball fights. It's all great fun with friends and family. Most of all I love the photo opportunities it brings, the way it glitters in the moonlight and shimmers in the sunlight. About are some pictures I took when we went on evening and morning walks with the dogs. Did you or Have you got snow?

Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015!

Happy New Year Everybody! So much has happened this year and i'm super excited for 2015. I started this blog around a year ago and remember this space reading NO POSTS and I can now proudly sit here watching this little space grow. You may have noticed that I have changed the design of my blog recently, this is because I wasn't happy with the way it looked. I am going to be putting up a wider range of posts too. Doing Blogmas was fun and I really enjoyed blogging everyday but it made me realise how much more effort I want to put into my future posts. I hope you enjoy them and if you have any requests, let me know in the comments.
I'm going to finish this post by setting three new years resolutions, as I think three is a good number to try and achieve:
1. Talk more openly to some of my friends, I think it will bring us closer together.
2. Become more organised, I feel I need to be more organised in my everyday life!
3. Be more positive, I have found myself being more positive …
