As a bid to make sure I keep up with this blog, I have started a feature called "Sunday Times" (how original!) Its partly because the newspaper is awesome but mainly because I always say "______ times" ~ happy times, sad times, good times, fun times etc! So today is Edition #1 and I shall try to write something at least every Sunday when I usually have a little time on my hands with no classes/extra cirricular activies :)
I actually wanted to write another post yesterday but I think two was enough. (Can't believe I have 15 followers already!) Also can't believe how addicting I'm finding blogging again!! Now that I actually have something to talk about, there's no stopping me ^^ So yesterday, I received a package and it was left outside my front door so mother and I didn't see it until the afternoon when she popped out for a second! And I'm very excited to show you what's inside!!
I have been hunting this product for a long time now and finally gave up with running around different Sally's and googled it to purchase it online! There's been so many raves and lovage about CHI's Silk Infusion (CHI standing for Cationic Hydration Interlink) and I have been dying to try it!! I think it has actually been discontinued now which is a bit rubbish since everyone seems to love it so much...
That was all I had purchased (from ALLTHINGSWOMAN) but Jo had also sent me a few little extra goodies! And they all came in these two beautiful red organza mesh pouch bags with gold hearts printed on them. There's a cute little sample spray of Etro Raving :) Its a little too sofisticated for me as I like very sweet scents and its slightly musky so I shall probably pass it onto my mother who will most likely never use it :P
And then a sample of Fenjal La Femme Shower Creme (Lotus) was also included, along with Revlon High Dimension Eyeliner in 03 Bronze Flash which is super creamy and glides on perfectly!!
I got up pretty early this morning (for me on a Sunday) at 7am to follow my parents to the local car boot sale! Father goes every week and is always on the lookout for any watches/clocks. I just thought it'd be nice to have a walk around and a look-see! A little bit of early morning walking never hurt anyone and round a carboot sale is a lot more interesting than just wondering around the housing estate :) We ended up with a couple of clocks, a long picture frame for my brother's university photograph, a brand new canon printer and a glass swan with a head too small for its body XD (Mother liked it as it opened up to store things and it was only £1)
So back onto beauty things, I did a very quick and simple natural look for my little 2 hour wander. (First ever LOTD!!! Wooop!)
Missha M Perfect Cover B.B Cream in No.23 Natural Beige
The Body Shop Eye Trio in 02 Sundown Glow
Flat Shader Brush
The Body Shop Eye Definer in 13 Burnished Amber (lower lash line)
The Body Shop Divide & Mulitply Mascara in 01 Black
The Body Shop Blush Trio in 01 Cool Dusk
The Body Shop Blush Trio in 02 Wam Sunset (as contour shading)
MAC Hello Kitty SE187 Brush
MAC Lipstick in Creme Cup (Cremesheen)
I'm also trying out a technique for waving hair without heat which involves French Plaits/Braids. I split my hair into halfs (minus my fringe/bangs) and plaitted each half. Then put the two ends together and up into a small bun with a hairtie. I slept in the plaits and woke up without much time to mull over taking them out but I thought it looked cute to keep them in (and the carboot sale was HOT from the baking sun! Don't worry, I remembered my SPF!). They're actually still in and I'm kinda scared to take them out... but its okay because I'll be at home the rest of the day and I can wash it out tonight if it looks bad... Maybe another post later on how it turns out :)
Just one last thing, I tested out my sample of The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Serum. On first use, I love the way it instantly softened my skin! I just applied it all over my face before my usual moisturisers and I felt the moisture just being absorbed into my skin! This is something I will most likely be purchasing ^_^
Love love and Sundaylove!
