So today me and my friend Klara went to a vintage fair and afterwards we went shopping and for a walk. I live on the coast so on sunny days it’s so nice to take a time out and just relax near the beach (and a bit of retail therapy hurt no one…).
So I thought Id do a MOTD because I was making an effort And this sort of post means I can put in some pretty, atmospheric pictures and a mini haul of things I bought.
The wax melts are made out of soya wax, in which the fumes are meant to be much better for your lungs as opposed to paraffin wax, so that’s good. And you don’t know HOW good they smell, especially the grapefruit ones (which im burning right now in my elephant oil burner).
I’ve been really liking bows recently as well, I’ve been trying to find hairstyles where I can have my hair natural but it not look really ringletty and messy. So I twist the hair around my face from both sides and bring it to the back on my head, where i clip it in place with a bow. I thought these bows were so pretty, and if you remember from my prom post (I wore a blue flamingo dress), I just had to support the flamingos and bought the bow.
From Lush, I went in for the lipscrub and came out with a facewash and a beautifully smelling shower gel from the mothers day line. I havent tried any of these products before so there’s not much to say!
From boots, I bought a replacement liquid eyeliner from collection. I wear it most days because it’s so easy to use and it’s only £2.99, it’s great and its a really opaque black.
I also bought a moisturizing lip balm from nivea. I think nivea take the award for best drugstore lip balms, Like the eyeliner, they’re cheap and cheerful and make your lips feel hydrated and are good at healing your lips too. It’s been especially cold this last week in the UK and my lips are really feeling it.
Finally, I felt in one of those optimistic moods where you stride into a shop looking for some undiscovered gem amongst the shelves. And I remember having the lasting finish foundation years ago but I couldn’t remember what it was like. My experience with trying foundations always leads to me being disappointed and going back to revlon colorstay. But who knows? Maybe Rimmel is the dark horse I’m yet to discover.
