This week I had a week off work which was great as I managed to paint my nails, you can see what I was wearing on them here, I also ordered a £50 dress of ASOS which for me was a pretty radical decision, it is due to arrive next week sometime and if I can manage to convince my wonderful boyfriend to take some pictures I will do an Outfit of the Day style video for you all 🙂
This week I have not been eating too healthily as you can see from the picture, my Mum came home from work one day via Valerie’s Patisserie with these wonderful fruit tarts which were friggin’ gorgeous and today me and Tom made brownies, but I have been doing my pilates everyday so that makes up for it, right? I’m going to post the brownie recipe within the next two days because they were chewy heaven and everyone should be able to enjoy them! (You’re welcome.)
This week my little sister came home with my Mum and Dad with two adorable creatures, Phoebe (Top right) and Rose (Bottom Left) both of whom were named by Kate (said sister)! Unfortunately, a couple months ago just before christmas my sister’s rabbit Tiger-lily had a stroke and had to be put down and it broke my sisters heart but the excitement and joy on her face when she brought these two home was a touching moment.
That’s my week summarised, what have you been up to?
This week was half term which meant no 7am starts, no bus journeys and whilst I do have to go back to college tomorrow, I now have two weeks of work, so I have several post ideas that will heading your way in the next fortnight!
This week has been a time of trying new things, which for me is a big thing. It takes a lot to get me out of my comfort zone or even try a new foundation! But alas, that is exactly what I did. I recently invested in the Rimmel London Match Foundation in Ivory, I know, I’m two months late to the hype as usual, but I only tried this because I left my usual foundation at my boyfriend’s (who is still hobbling around due to his leg) flat so I had to use my sisters whilst home for a couple of days and this is what she was using. I only wish I had jumped on the band wagon and bought this when everyone else was discovering it! It promises ‘Light perfecting radiance foundation [which promises] traceless coverage for flawlessly skin under any light’ and lasts all day, it also has SPF 18. This is a pretty bold statement and all for a price tag of £6.99.
I was blown away by this foundation! It is bloody fantastic! I actually prefer this to my £25-a-pop Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation. It has good coverage and a shine without making my skin look oily but rather fresh. The actual product has an almost gel-like texture but feels creamy on the skin and it lasts all day yet doesn’t look cake-y, which is useful when you have an 8 hour shift at McDonalds and don’t want your foundation to be dripping on the till or like you’ve applied your make-up with a trowel. Overall, for the price, packaging and lasting power this is sure to be gracing my shopping basket again!
