At the end of every work week (or weekend, if I’m having a busy one) my handbag screams for a clean out – and being the organizational freak I can be, I cannot ignore it. Since doing this #lippyaday challenge (see @norlinm) on Instagram I am trying to avoid doubling up and using the same lip products AT ALL. So when Friday comes around, my handbag line up looks like this…
Today I turned a whopping twenty-four years old. Even Google knew it! I woke up tired and feeling lethargic, and then my partner made pancakes for breakfast (it is also Shrove Tuesday, known as Pancake Day) and things got a little bit better.
I have now been at work for five hours and it is a SLOW day. The other lady who works here (out of 12 staff, only two are female) crushed her arm on Saturday just gone and won’t be at work for some time (except to do pays as I am not trained in that yet), so it is just little old me. I have brought in my massive grey sequinned bow headband (bought from IMATS!) and am wearing it just for the sake of it!
Kylie Minogue and a birthday cake decorate my computer wallpaper (see below) and tonight my family and my partner and I will be going to a local Chinese restaurant (a little bit fancier than usual) for dinner. I can’t wait, as I’ve been wanting to go to this place for six months! Oh! And I’ve got a new black lace Review top (see below) to wear too.
After much procrastinating, I’ve thought about it carefully… and this is my 24 before 25 list (finally!)… let me know what you think! Continue reading
SEEING: I started watching season one of Downton Abbey, which is very enjoyable, and tomorrow I’m going to see Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters at the cinemas with my friend who looks like Gemma Arterton – I can’t wait to see Jeremy Renner in LEATHER!
TASTING: Snacks from the Asian market. Strawberry Citron slushies from Nightowl.
HEARING: For the first time ever, I got to hear the Like A Version song on Triple J.
SMELLING: Garlic and old shoes. Ugh get out of my nose.
TOUCHING: My phone – I’ve finally worked out (since June last year) how to touch type on my Samsung Galaxy S3 hooray!
Inspired by Sometimes Sweet over here.
PS Ladies, I have four powder Illamasqua blushers (two are cracked) that I’d like to swap for one or two of their cream blushers – I also have a YSL #59 Golden Melon lipstick I’d like to swap so could throw that to sweeten the deal in if anyone was keen or interested? Let me know! Cheers.
