Accidental, like a gasoline rainbow.
YAY it’s the easter holidays! I get a week off from school so that gives me a bit of time to do a lil’ blogging. I’ve been lazing around in the apartment the past couple of days and I must say I’ve almost forgotten how good it feels to do nothing and stay in bed all day. It is ABSOLUTELY GRATIFYING. My only teeny tiny complaint is that I have this fear of losing track of time and not being able to finish my holiday assignments before the week is up! I guess this is where a proper timetable might come in handy but knowing my inane ability to rebel against any form of scheduling….I think I’m better off without one.
I owe you guys a beauty entry so I thought I’d start this entry with a couple of items I got before my move to Melbourne.
I went to a clothing/household sale with my cousins on a whim and didn’t expect to buy anything until I saw a tiny booth tucked away in a corner, invisible to the untrained eyes of many women who were just there to stock up on diapers and skillets (if you are a married woman with 2 kids to feed, nothing is more logical than hoarding more pots and pans even if you have 10 skillets in the cupboard already – I know this because my mother is the same, bless her heart.) I saw these Givenchy gems on sale for $15 knocked down from their I-would-never-be-able-to-afford-this-since-I’m-jobless price of $40.
Aren’t they pretty to look at? L to R: Precious Sari glittering eyeshadow in Maharani Silver and Maharani Gold. They’re from last year’s Givenchy Maharani collection and I originally intended to get only one but I couldn’t decide between the two so me being the sensible, thrifty girl that I so am, I got both in the end 8D Can’t say much about what they’re like when worn because I’ve not used them at all. School cuts my usual half hour long beauty routines into a slapstick 5 min comedy, sad but true.
I’ve been wanting to show you this for the longest time!! My friend Furry (fabulous owner of Earlgreyparty.com) went to Taiwan for a brief holiday and she helped me get another Jill Stuart eye jelly and a lipgloss to add to my mini collection. I am going to collect all of the eye jellies eventually, words just cannot express how much I love them. They have an amazing sparkly finish and they don’t budge even without a primer. What you see here is the Eye Jelly in Midnight Shine, a cool deep navy blue.
Jill Stuart Jelly Gloss in Dusk Rose, another beauty this one. Such pretty packaging no no? Dusk Rose is a dolly pink with a ton of gold shimmer, it actually reminds me of NARS Angelika except in gloss form lol and maybe a wee bit peachier.
I did a little exploring around area yesterday so imma be awesome and share with you some of my fave shots ;D Think of it as a visual apology for the weeks I’ve been away from my blogging duties lol.
The sky couldn’t have been more perfect.
Shit, it’s my dream letter box.
YES I HAVE A HIGH FASHION SHOE OUTLET STORE NEAR MY PLACE /o/ I love that blue van lol.
Thrift store + cafe.
Flowers in my neighbour’s garden.
I have this sudden desire to get a tube of Rouge Coco lipstick from CHANEL. It probably costs more than I can afford right now but god, I have never wanted a lipstick so bad (where have I heard this line before?) I don’t actually know why I *need* it but I’m pretty sure it’s got nothing to do with the multiple ads of French beauty Vanessa Paradis that have taken over every tram stop in the city. Yep, nah uh nothing to do with it.
My mom’s flying off to NYC this friday for a work/holiday thing with her colleagues and she’s asked me to send her a list of things I want. I’m tempted to bombard her email with a lengthy list of MAC stuff I want (like I don’t have enough already, geez but but but have you seen the new Art Supplies collection?! HOLY SHIZ I WANT EVERYTHING!) I think I’ll list out 20 items I want and in the same email, type “Mom you can either get me the 20 items above available in various locations around the city or you can choose to end your misery by buying me a CHANEL 2.55, love you!” I wonder if she’d be amused.
p.s I just noticed my readership has increased slightly since I last blogged omg, thank you so much for subscribing + reading everyone! Come say hi in the comments, I would love to read your blogs too! It’s funny how my readership only increases when I disappear rofl, maybe I should start planning more disappearing acts (I’M KIDDING.)
