It’s been absolutely ages since I went and bought myself lots of new clothes. Partly because I’ve never really liked shopping (as I never know what size I’ll be in any given shop) and partly because I seem to have been losing a bit of weight recently (yay for pole fitness and my new hobby; hula hooping!) and I didn’t want to have to buy even more clothes in a couple of months’ time.
But while in Brighton a few weeks ago with one of my best mates, Rachael, we popped into H&M and I picked up a few bits! She’s a total enabler! I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t get any of the jeans I wanted in store, so I had a look on their website and while they were having a 10% off and free delivery week, I picked up my first two pairs of skinny jeans! OMG!
I hate buying foundation. Absolutely hate it. (Almost more than I hate buying jeans!) I either buy the wrong shade or tone or the wrong coverage and I’m left feeling frustrated.
A couple of months ago, I reached out to my Twitter followers to ask which foundation they’d recommend. Two foundations scored really highly; the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer in One and the Rainforest of the Sea Foundation from Tarte.
I’m pretty glad to be seeing the back of November if I’m being honest because it’s been a bit of a roller-coaster month. But onward and upwards and all that jazz.
I’m really looking forward to December, especially Christmas, because I get to spend some downtime with J and my family. But before December happens, here’s a quick look at the things that I’ve been loving through November.
Where the hell did September go? I’m sure a couple of weeks ago it was still light out about 8:30, now it’s pitch black. Autumn is definitely here now.
Back in June, the lovely Charlotte (Just Charlotte) ran a Twitter competition to win a £50 Feel Unique voucher, which I won. No surprise to anyone who knows me; I’m a lucky raffle/Twitter competition winner 😀
Bloody hell, I swear this was entirely accidental! I don’t generally tend to follow the trends (except maybe my beloved Rimmel 107 ♥) but my recent purchases seem to be absolutely perfect for spring. What have I become?!
I know this post is a little bit late, but I’ve been really good at scheduling posts recently and I didn’t wanna go messing it all up!
Valentine’s Day was pretty uneventful in our house; J and I watched The X-Files, cuddled up on the sofa and scoffed loads of Quality Streets 🙂
I thought I’d brighten up my blog with a little bit of colour!
I finally caved in and bought the Kate Moss 107 lipstick by Rimmel. I’ve been lusting after it for ages, seeing it on other blogs, wanting it and forgetting to buy it or it being out of stock. When I went into Boots on Wednesday, they had two in stock! Luckily, I bought it before my makeup ban came into effect 😀
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!
