The weather is finally starting the cheer up here in England; its nicely warm and bright, is it nearly spring?!
I finally did the exercise DVD I bought in January (ahem) and I nearly died after the warm up and first work out. I didn’t even attempt the boxercise section or the stretches because I felt like I had climbed a mountain. And I probably burned what – a quarter of a Reeces Peanut Butter Cup? I will never look at Chocolate in the same way again.
Having said that I started the day with a McDonalds Breakfast and a 3 pack of Reeces, so I obviously haven’t accepted the food in/fat out equation yet. But hey, I’m only 3 days into New Year (Chinese, that is!).
I bought this Pop Beauty Palette on sale for £10 – it includes 8 bronzed/peach shades:
I really love the colours; they can be used on cheek, eyes and for contouring, but I noticed some bizarre black damp looking stains on the compact.
I have not idea what it is but I don’t like – I am going to return it methinks but I do love the colours; they are very summery and wearable, and there is a soft fragrance.
Its my first POP item; I’ve seen the products strewn across counters in TopShop and skipped it since it is hardly cheap, but I will definately keep my eye open now for other cute products they have.
I also got another beauty tool from Ebay – Shu Uemura Eyelash Applicator;
I am completely rubbish with applying lashes. I cannot get it to stick, and if the glue gets to close it irritates my eyes like crazy. So hopefully this tool will help.
I paid £20 for it with shipping, I think it is listed as $55 on the US Shu Website.
Here are the instructions;
This should be a good alternative to my thick fingers and long nails! I find it hard to apply lashes with my tweezers as the are short and thicker than this applicator, so it should be ideal for application…I shall update shortly!
I managed to collect my Paul & Joe, TWO DAYS LATE. Yes it had been sat in a random Post Office. I had called earlier and said they didn’t have it, but when I popped in, the *did* have it. Like magic.
So on my lap here it is:
I couldn’t open it without powder getting everywhere (because it had been knocked about a bit I reckon) hence no piccie whilst I was in the car and now my camera needs charging..yes, disorganised, I know.
Ain’t it cute?! Its such a perfect collection, perfect product and perfect packaging – totally difficult to get for most of us mere mortals, but never mind.
What else? The sun is shining and I feel like a cranky old vampire. Its time to get some Vitamin D.
P.S. Does anyone know a good hairdresser?…..
I kid, I kid.
