Sunday stuff.


Good afternoon! Unexpectedly had today off so went into town this morning to sort out my new glasses. I'm very excited about them. If you follow me on twitter you may have seen me tweet about them a few weeks ago. I said something along the lines of  'I have fallen in love with some glasses, they are Dior and I need them in my life'. Well, they are mine and arriving tomorrow. YES!

Today I am wearing  F21 jumper, River Island pull-ons, Dune ankle boots, New Look coat and a Zara handbag. The lipstick is Natural Collection from Boots in 'Crimson'. My sister bought it me the other day and it's the best lipstick I have. She also bought me a pale pink shade which is also incredible. They are only £1.99 and in my opinion better than all my others which include Dior, Lauder and Revlon that are five times (+) the price.

Also, I forgot to show you my new mittens that my Mom bought me last week! They are so thick and fleece lined so my hands will be super toastie when I'm going to and from work in the freezing cold!

 
(The perks of working in a Department store!)


Also, talking of perks, this week in work has been a mega event meaning there are big discounts throughout the store, including fragrance and cosmetics, which I then get staff discount on top of!
This week I have mainly been buying Christmas presents, but I did stock up on my favourite foundation; Estee Lauder 'Double Wear'. I asked my followers on twitter advice on the best foundation and so many people told m to try this one. Now I have, I never intend on owning any other foundation again.
I buy both 'Sand' and 'Tawny' so I have one for when I'm pale (Sand) and one for when I'm tanned (Tawny) and when I'm in between I mix the two accordingly to get a suitable colour. At £26.50 this foundation is quite expensive but it is one of the best things I have ever spent money on. Working long hours and being lazy on my break I never re-apply my make-up in the day, but with this foundation I don't have to anyway. I use 17 Photo Flawless Primer (£4.99 from Boots) and apply with a Sephora foundation brush and then off I go. If you are looking to try and new foundation I DEFINITELY recommend you go for this one. And if you do, let me know how you get on with it!

I also bought these H.O.H tights, which I have wanted for well over a year and never bothered to actually buy. My tights are usually about £4 form Asda and so £12 for a pair that I'm probably going to put a hole in and soon as I go to the toilet always held me back, but they were £7.20 after all discounts so I bought them. God knows when I'll wear them though!


They seem to be pretty popular again right now with the likes of Jessie J and Rhianna wearing them out and about! I think it'll wear mine with my monochrome Tux jacket.
