Been a while since I did a 'week in pictures' style post, mainly because my life has been so boring and controlled by College I haven't been taking any pictures. Not that I can promise you these ones will be particular spectacular ;) I'm lacking beauty blogging inspiration at the moment... I'm trying to save all the money I can so I've
stopped cut back on buying items that just aren't necessary. Although, saying that I have a few high end items on my wishlist so I'm trying to summon the guts to spend a lot of money on just one item. My logic is that if I stopped buying tonnes of cheap make up, I can afford to buy the occasional pricey one. Anyway, that was a ramble and a half!
So I didn't wait long to pick up June's issue of Marie Claire! If you weren't aware they're giving away the smaller 50ml body butters with this issue. Not a magazine I usually go for... but the 'freebie' sucked me in. I love TBS body butters but I think they're so overpriced. Shea butter is one of my favourites and I'm definitely going to leave this in my handbag because it's so much smaller! Other than that, I vow to finish the body butters I have sitting in my drawers!
I caved and made an order with Sigma. It literally only took a week to get here via international shipping!! How crazy is that? And I've been waiting for an H&M order for 2 months now - a whole post is coming on that badboy when it gets here! Not happy bunny with H&M online. I ordered the F82 Round Top Kabuki and the E40 Tapered Blending brushes. Really happy with them and excited to give them a whirl. Recommend Sigma til the cows come home... the two MAC brushes I owned actually broke and these brushes are synthetic so go for Sigma!
I don't think I've ever done one of these posts without throwing in some food, haha I love it! This has been my breakfast of choice for a while though - Get some of your 5-a-day in early, so it's healthy and delicious. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and natural yoghurt is a godsend. I'm still trying to loose a last little bit of weight so I'm trying to make everything healthy but not restrict myself. If I'm feeling extremely hungry I add a bit of wholemeal toast :)
I've been on a mission for a while now, to find the perfect sponge mix! Unfortunately, these are not them. These turned out to be quite gooey and heavy - but they were delicious! I didn't bother icing them (even though I've recently purchased a fancy piping bag) seeing as though they're just 'test' cupcakes lol. If any one has a perfect light and fluffy cupcake mixture then let me know!
Sorry this was a bit of a bore! I also said goodbye to my boyfriend this morning at 3.30am. He's off to Zante with his friends - for two, yes two weeks! People have been saying I'm crazy but I have exams to revise for and I have no problem with him having some 'boy time'. I think that 'absence makes the heart grow fonder' will ring true in the next few weeks. We've never really spent more than 4 days without seeing each other... so we shall see! Haha.
