J doesn’t understand my blogging. He’s looked at my blog, faked a yawn and said “very nice dear”. So it was really sweet when he said I could borrow his camera for the purposes of taking better photos and attempting to vlog! It’s a Canon EOS 600D which means nothing to me, but apparently it’s “quite good!”
So today I have to wait in for the nice Anglian man to fix the window lock, so while I’m waiting, (any time between 8am and 5pm!) I’m going to attempt to follow a tutorial for a gold eye look!
I just wanted to share a quick post with you all. It’s my birthday on Thursday (*cough* 31, where on earth did the time go?) and these presents have started appearing in the lounge!! Sorry for the awful photo, I’m not exactly allowed to pick them up and move them 😛
I moved in with J last April and because I lived in a rented flat at the time, I was able to move my stuff out over the course of a few weeks. He bought his, what is now our, house in 2009. It needed a lot of work back then and still needs quite a bit of love and attention.
Back in November 2013, I was about to go on my first official date with J, so I popped to my local hairdresser to get my hair done! Talk about trying to make a good impression! She said she’d just bought a Curl Secret which was relatively new. I was really intrigued so I said I’d be her guinea pig and let her try it out on my hair!!
So I popped into Superdrug today, just to see if they had the Base Corrector Palette by Revolution. They didn’t. Instead I accidentally picked up a bottle of Micellar Cleansing Water by Garnier, a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, some Scrubbing Me Softly Body Scrub by Zoella and a 4 way nail buffer.
We have a large untamed garden extending all the way round our house. There’s rubble, weeds, brambles and often frogs, slowworms, foxes and badgers as well. The project, quite simply, is too large for J and I to undertake alone, especially considering J has CFS, so can’t really do much in one go. So we thought we’d hire a landscaper.
Well I finally got my other print and I’m very happy with it! I still have no idea where any of them are going to go in the house but I promise to show them in their new homes when they’re up!
As I mentioned in my smoky eye look post, I really need to practice applying eyeliner (liquid and gel) to my top lash line and also the flick/wing at the end. I do often cheat and use Kohl liner first to make the line, then draw over it with gel or liquid. Does anyone else do that too or are you all awesome eyeliner experts? 😀 I’ve found some different tutorials which I’m going to attempt to copy and see which ones are easy or difficult to follow.
