Mini splurge...

... in preparation for my Germany trip next week I've had a little shopping trip to restock on a few things, like my No7 beautiful skin cleanser, which I've blogged about before and cannot recommend enough.

Im also giving the exfoliator a go as its the only thing in the range I haven't tried yet, and I really could do with not stealing my boyfriends shaving scrub anymore at the result of smelling like a man.

No7 Eyelash curlers- as Ive not owned a pair for years, since my last ones died or went missing I'm not sure which.  Either way the 3 for 2 offer in Boots is always a great way for me to end up with something that Ive wanted or fancied trying for ages.

Total bargain!!! Current season Marc Jacobs sunnies £29.99 thank you TK Maxx :) can not believe it! they are AMASING, only snag being they aren't in a matching box so I ended up with Missoni one, but I can't complain with a hefty bit of saving from the RRP £110

Magma Fashion sketchbook- another TK Maxx find, literally saw it just before I got to the till, quite a cool little book, has nice quality recyclable sketching paper and handy little finds throughout such as templates, measurement sheets and other bits and bobs.

Last but by no means least-  Smashbox Photo Finish Primer.  I have never used a primer before other than my Urban Decay primer potion.  But thats just for around the eyes and after being amased at the lasting results and growing tired of slidey makeup days I thought it was about time to invest in some for my face.  It was a toss up between this and Benefit's Porefessional, which I had sampled and loved but didn't want to pay the £20+ price tag.  I had noticed that the Smashbox primer was coming soon on buyapowa.com so Im glad I stuck it out as I only ended up paying £13 wahoo!  So I'm really excited to try this out.

By the way if you haven't checked it out already, you really need to have a look at buyapowa its rather addictive! And besides who doesn't love high end products at lower prices?

Missing art...


... so feeling a little inspired through doing my uni work *sigh* and being completely egged on by the amasing Malia's artwork (http://deepfriedfreckles.blogspot.co.uk/) I have really come to appreciate how much I miss doing any form of painting, drawing or digital media. Sometimes I feel like all the fun and appreciation is taken from it when I do it for uni, because everything is required within such tight and constricted deadlines. I seem to do something and hand it in before I get the chance to look back and reflect on what Ive produced. So I did just that and dug out some old work! And after getting bogged down with everything thats going on and the minute I had a little moment to appreciate that damn I did do alright actually...




....if I do say so myself.

Rainy day for me...

.... so some lovely blog comments (thankyou so much!) have spurred me on to post again, its been nearly a month since my last post and I know its the most over used excuse in history but I have been super busy! Seriously, its not a cop out I have so much to tell and share about my excursions over the last few weeks, its only when I look back at my photos that I really remember how much I have done. So in summary since my last post I have been to Paris, completed a brief including a garment to be proud of, eaten scrummy baking that my best friend keeps making, made the decision to do a juice detox, had an amazing opportunity to be assistant on a S/S fashion shoot, had a lovely break away in Amsterdam with my mr, plenty of snuggles with the puggles, gorgeous family day for my wonderful mum's birthday, shopped, and found my love of art again thus proving that: damn I can paint :) Phew! So will try to do posts on everything soon!
