Saturday Night/Sunday Morning Scribbles..
It's 3 am on Sunday morning and I've just got in from spending the evening out and about with my GF. It was a standard chilled Saturday but I had some time to snap some pics before hand. Can I just say I have had such a hectic, stressful, emotional week this week it's been insane. I haven't had much time to blog or think about blogging because there's been so much going on.
I was in Liverpool Monday and Tuesday for my Virgin value challenge and it was amazing, had a great couple of days but it really took it all out of me. Since then I have been back at work and then spending time at the gym. On Friday I attended a fabulous press event for Sleek Make-up it was great, such a laugh with some lovely ladies and I will try and post about it tomorrow if I get the chance.
My skin is absolutely awful at the moment it has just gone crazy on me, must be from the madness of this week. The last few days I have been using Darphin's 'Soothing Cream' which is part of their 'Intral' range. The range is designed for sensitive skin and this cream in particular is meant to calm the skin from irritation, I have been applying night and day for the last 3 days and so far so good it seems to be working. I have to say it smells GORGEOUS so I don't mind plastering it on. I am hoping it will sort it out soon because it really is getting me down.
Today for the first time in FOREVER I wore silver jewelry. I have been wearing gold so much lately that it was nice to have that change. I recently purchased the turqoise stone ring from Lily's blog she has got some gorgeous pieces on there you should go check them out! The other ring is my Dior white gold 'Oui' ring that my frenchy bought me 3 years ago - I have really been neglecting it due to all the gold I've been rocking.. tut tut Pardon Mon amour!
I switched concealers again I am now wearing MAC studio fix concealer but think I will do a separate post on it at a later date. I also ran out of mascara.. well I have a few but they are all dried up so I ended up using a mini MAC Zoom mascara that was part of a Xmas box set. I was actually pretty impressed and I usually don't get on with MAC mascaras but I really like the brush on the Zoom mascara. I will have to go and check out some of the mascaras you dolls recommended tomorrow.
This evening I went for a nude brown, slightly overdrawn glossy lip - I have been wearing colour on my lips quite a lot recently that I haven't worn major eye make up so I opted for a navy smokey eye and I used my MAC tartan tale palette again from Christmas time.
I seem to be talking to quite a lot it must be my tiredness I have been up since 7.45 to get to the gym for an early morning Zumba class. Anyways enough rambling, here's what I'm wearing..
Oh by the way I mixed my NC44 with a little NC45 because I wanted to look more bronze.. NOT ORANGE, but bronze! It's the evening so in my books it's allowed! :)
