Between my never-ending wishlist of clothing and beauty products, upcoming music festivals, wanting to buy new furniture for my bedroom and saving for my travels next year, I'm stressing out a little about money at the moment. It may surprise you when I say that my savings account is actually looking pretty good at the moment, but I haven't put any money into savings for a couple of weeks now and it makes me feel so guilty! I'm just going to have to work insane hours at work, but that's okay. With Christmas just around the corner, they'll need me to work and I like keeping busy. I'm really excited about the new pieces I want to get for my room - they include a lamp, bedside table and make up storage. I'm not going to buy these things all at once, but when I do, I'll be sure to do a bedroom picture post!
Anyway, here are some bits and pieces I've picked up recently. After months of being on my shopping list, I finally bought Laura Mercier's Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser. I usually use MAC's Studio Fix Fluid everyday, but now that my skin's looking a little bit better thanks to Liz Earle, I want to go back to using something lighter on an everyday basis. So far, I'm absolutely loving it! It's light like a moisturiser, but the coverage is impressive - very buildable. I decided to look into Kérastase's Ciment Thermique after Caroline featured it in her August favourites here. It sounded like the perfect product for me as my hair has been giving me some grief lately. I went to two salons, which were both sold out, but the really sweet hairdresser at Maurice Mead who was dying my hair, suggested Nectar Thermique. I naturally have dry and coarse hair, but my fringe is even worse because I blow dry it. I've noticed such a considerable difference after using this product. It's softer and in photos, it even looks shiny! Amazing. I also picked up Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara (my holy grail), OPI nail polish in Over The Moon! (I think this would be a nice colour for space nails) and MAC's Lady Grey Eyeshadow Quad, which I've had my eye on for a while.
Lastly, I bought a couple of tank tops from General Pants Co. (yay for summer!) and the September issue of Elle UK was finally released in Australia and I couldn't not buy it because Kirsten Dunst looks too pretty.
Have a fabulous weekend! I'm enjoying my Friday night in with a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, a friend from work brought back for me from Melbourne. Yum!
