New Phone!

So, even with the cold weather being back with a vengeance, (it was bitterly cold this morning as demonstrated in the pic above courtesy of my dashboard) a parcel was waiting for me when I arrived home.

To my complete surprise it turned out to be my new phone. Not to shocking apart from the fact that I only ordered it on Saturday evening and it was delivered Monday (even with heavy snow on the ground!).

Now I just have to work out how to use it!

November Favourites

My favourites for this month are a mixture of beauty and non-beauty items.

The Beauty Items are as follows:

Eye shadows, mascara and eyeliners
Mac Phloof
Mac Satin Taupe
Mac eye khol in Phone Number (a soft, wearable, alternative to black.)

Lip gloss and lip liners
Mac gloss in Purr
Mac lip pencil in Dervish. (i haven't used a liner in years but this was recommended to me and I've noticed a difference in the lasting power of my lipstick / gloss.)

Balenciaga Paris eau de parfum

Nail varnish
Barry M nail effect. (i get loads of complements every time i use this)

And now for the non-beauty items:

True Blood series by Charlaine Harris (not quite as racy as the TV show, but not far off!)

Starbuck's Egg nog latte.

TV show

Castle. (can't get enough of this one!)

Snow days and makeup.

So on days like these when the desire to hide under the duvet is extra powerful, makeup suddenly becomes way down on my list of priorities.

It's at these times that i tend to rely on my trusty lip balm and mascara to see me through the day.

At the moment these are my summer fruits EOS egg shaped lip balm and my Diorshow black mascara.

I cannot say enough good things about these products.The lip balm (once you have gotten past the cute packaging) is possibly one of the best lip balms i have ever used.

It glides on effortlessly and stays for ages. It tastes as nice as it smells and is not drying on the lips. I've also found that it makes a great lipstick primer.

The Dior mascara has been a favourite of mine for a long time. It is one of the very few that i have encountered that i do not have a reaction to. (trust me, it is not funny when your eyes feel so tired you could cry 30 minutes after you've put your mascara on!) i find that it defines and separates really well and is not too clumpy.

Now, if I can just find something to sort out my hair.......
