Hey, I'm Tenneil

I live in Perth, Australia, and this is my creative outlet where I blog about beauty, my life and everything in between. I enjoy the '80s, the '90s and anything French, and some of my favourite things in life include music,  film, summer and a nice cup of tea.

Can I Wake You Up? Is It Late Enough?

Can I Wake You Up? Is It Late Enough?

I'm so sorry it's been a while since my last post! With Christmas well on its way, things at work have been busy and I haven't had a chance to take any photos of my latest purchases or my outfits. I don't like taking photos at night when I get home from work because I don't like working with artificial light. I attempted to take photos yesterday afternoon when I finished early, but it was a gloomy day and I just wasn't satisfied with the way they turned out! I have tomorrow off and the forecast is looking at a sunny day, so hopefully I'll get some nice photos for you all very soon.

In the meantime, here's a boring wishlist post. Well, the Topshop stuff I've actually bought, but the makeup, I've been lusting over for a while now. I've been so addicted to Topshop recently. Expensive, but worth every cent (pence?)! I bought two pairs of the Moto Baxter jeans because I love the colours and from all the fashion blogs I follow and reviews I read, they seem like a nice fit. I bought the Guipure Lace Peter Pan Blouse because I'm just starting to get into the Peter Pan collar/regular collar trend (I'm always the last to jump on bandwagons). I absolutely adore it - so cute and anything lace instantly grabs my eye. Lastly, I also bought the highly coveted Allegra Chelsea Platform Boots! I never looked at them on all the blogs I follow and thought, 'I MUST HAVE THEM', but then the other day while browsing the Topshop website, I couldn't stop staring at them. They're the perfect height for me because I am no good at walking in heels, but the quality and comfort of these shoes received good reviews. I'm so excited to get them in the mail!

I've been searching for the perfect pinky nude lipstick for a while now and I think I've found it in Jubilee by MAC. I was settled on buying Hug Me, but after swatching the two side by side, I decided I liked Jubilee more. I have both Creme d' Nude and Myth and while I love them, they aren't the kind of lipstick I can wear everyday because of my darker comeplexion and because they're so hard to work it. They shows the cracks in my lips like crazy! I've been contemplating trying the Blacktrack Fluidline line for a while now because I've heard it's much easier than using liquid eyeliner. I currently use MAC's Liquid Eye Liner in Boot Black and can't for the life of me get that perfect flick. I suppose practise makes perfect though. To apply the Fluidline, I'd buy the MAC 210 Precise Eyeliner Brush. I've also been lusting over Guerlain's Meteorites in Tient Rose. I would be lying if I said it wasn't the beautiful packaging and those cute colourful balls that attracted me to the product, but I've actually read amazing reviews. Plus, it's not too expensive to buy on eBay. I know a lot of people are against buying make up on eBay, but with the prices they charge in retail stores, Australian girls do not have a choice!

    

Bombay Bicycle Club and The Drums recently released new albums, both of which I've been enjoying immensely. I thought I'd share my two favourite songs, so enjoy! I'm off to paint my nails with OPI's Royal Rajah Ruby. My friends and I have VIP tickets to the Bloc Party DJ set tomorrow night. It's going to be so much fun!
