Yay! I got me my Nars Orgasm blush! I've wanted it for a while now. Actually, I wanted the Orgasm/Laguna duo but my pennies wouldn't stretch to that lol. So here it is! It's a lovely peachy pink shade with a subtle golden shimmer which claims to suit any skintone. I always opt for peachy shades because of my yellow base tone, and I've heard so many good things about this that I haaad to snap it up!
It's quite translucent, so you can wear it as a really subtle glow or build it up for more depth. Here's my swatches:
As you can see, it's a really natural colour on my skin tone and the gold shimmer will give a really healthy glow. I think I'm already in love! It cost me £20.50 from Selfridges.
My super cute friend bought me and my besties these matching necklaces for our trip to London, I thought that was so sweet and I love it!
It was hard not to go crazy in the Primark in Oxford Street but I did reaaaally well and only bought two jumpers and tights. One jumper I showed in this post (it's the one I'm posing at the Harry Potter set in), it's a gorgeous knit with gold mini sequins. I know I'll be wearing it all festive season! The other jumper is below:
It has cats on it! Amaze. Both jumpers were £12.
In Harrods, whilst posing at the Harry Potter stuff, I couldn't help but get my geek on and purchase something. It was all pretty expensive so I settled for this pen/wand. I can already tell I will look SO cool marking jotters with this (not).
I got some cute little earrings from Claire's accessories, I don't normally shop in there but I was looking for earrings for my Britney costume and it was 3 for 2 so I got these ones too!
Lastly, I got the VO5 Miracle Oil after being recommended it to put moisture back into my extensions, so I will let you know how that goes!
Also thought I'd also show you my London nails - little polka dots. I also FINALLY bought actual nail art pens in London, so things like this will be so much easier!
Lastly, here's my 30 Day Challenges for today:
This is really tricky! I have a variety of influences. My friends, family, boyfriend etc. I'm also influenced by celebrities in terms of fashion and style. I honestly find it very difficult to say who or what influences my life. I mainly live to my own expectations and my dreams!
My short term goals for this month are:
- Work as much as I can without feeling ill at the thought of it! Right now I'm starting to get a wee bit more supply work but I stress out about it sooo much and make myself ill. I need to learn to calm down!
- Volunteer at my local animal shelter. It's something I did on and off for years, but I've not been for a long time and I really have no excuse now with all my free time.
- Continue to attend the gym at least 5 sessions a week!
Fingers crossed I manage them all!
Sorry for such an all-over-the-place post today, just had a lot of bits and bobs to update on. What do you think of all my purchases?? ^_^
