Despite having a bit of a sore throat and the sniffles (ugh, winter. Jealous of you all in the Northern Hemisphere!), today was a relatively good day. I went to work, got my eBay parcels posted (I love making some quick and easy cash selling my old clothes!) and received my Urban Decay NAKED PALETTE in the mail! Yes, I finally decided to cave in and I couldn't be happier. I may post a look using the holy grail palette later in the week. I also thoroughly enjoyed the Chinese I was craving during my shift (it was all I could think about at work, haha) and the green tea with lemon and honey I made myself when I got home. Mmm. It's my favourite tea to drink during the winter and it always soothes my throat.
Now that I can cross the Naked Palette off my wishlist, here's what's left on it. It's a never-ending cycle of wanting and buying for me.
Liz Earle Healthy, Beautiful Skin Kit: all the UK beauty bloggers rave on about this and I simply must try it. I have quite problematic skin and I'm hoping this will help out a little. I'm almost out of my cleansing oil, cleanser and moisturiser, so I'll probably be purchasing this next pay day. £28.10 for a cleanser, toner and moisturiser doesn't seem all that bad to me either.
Bumble and Bumble Creme de Coco Masque: I've used this in the past before and I absolutely loved it. It made my hair feel so soft and nourished, not to mention, smell amazing! I could eat this stuff. After using a Phyto hair mask, I really want to go back to this.
Soap & Glory Scrub, Actually, The Righteous Butter and Hand Maid Gel: I don't know whether it's the pink retro packaging, the lovely scent, the witty pun names of their products or all three, but I love this brand. I'm almost out of my S&G The Scrub Of Your Life body wash and The Body Shop Shea Butter body butter, so I'd really like to get the Scrub, Actually and The Righteous Butter to replace them. I want the Hand Maid Gel just because. It's so cute! How can you pass up cute? I never used to like the smell of Miss Dior Cherie, but Soap & Glory has changed my mind.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser: I've heard great things about this tinted moisturiser and I'm really eager to try it because I'm sick of wearing foundation everyday. I never used to, but it just became easier to apply because I needed the coverage. I want to start letting my skin breathe again and from my research, I've heard Laura Mercier has the most coverage.
Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub: with the cold weather, my lips have been feeling more dry than usual and I hate that gross skin that can build up on them. I've heard good things about the Lush Lip Scrubs and that they smell amazing. Apparently you can eat them too? I'm all for anything that smells great and is edible. $10 isn't too harsh on the bank account either.
OPI nail polishes in I Juggle Men, Not Like The Movies and DS Diamond: these aren't colours I'd normally buy, but there's this really cool nail tutorial I want to try and these colours would be perfect for it. I have actually been contemplating buying Not Like The Movies from the Katy Perry Collection released earlier this year, but I guess now I can get it off my mind! It took me a long time to decide because I cannot stand Katy Perry. Despite that though, it's a pretty nail colour.
I'll try to update again during the week! The other week I said I was feeling inspired and now I've completely forgot what I wanted to post about. Must start writing ideas down!
