Erm...

...I am not even sure what this post is really about so I don't have a suitable title for it...here's what is currently in my head:

Airport purchases

I am currently on a business trip for work which means a lot of schmoozing and a teeny bit of work. Tied into that equals a plane ride and a perusal round duty free at Gatwick.

So I picked up Underage lipgloss. Totally not necessary but I just like doing Underage okay?

Sounds wrong. As a colour, so right....


Then I remembered, pre-checkout that my beloved Liz Earle was resting in my bathroom - bloody hell/FFS I cursed to myself (and perhaps out-loud) but every oversight has a silver lining and in this case at least I can now say that I have tried Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse.

Pre-Cleanse is an oil make up remover that markets itself as being extremely thorough and non-irritating. I can't say how different it is from so many others out there except that it smells nice and is really expensive - 150ml for £24 odd quid? Ouch! After an initial outing on my face last night I have to say it works well....I don't begrudge the cost to be honest if it proves to work effectively. Fingers crossed!

OOTN

Not dressy but it was a casual dinner with one colleague and when you work in digital/design you can wear whatever the hell you like. Thank god.

This is a crap OOTN BTW but hey I had the DSLR and I wasn't afraid to use it :)





Jeans: Cheap Monday
Top: BikBok
Shoes: Acne
Jacket: Topshop leather jacket (one of my most cherished items evarrr)


In other news

My hair has decided to turn slightly mmm how do we say this? Warm toned?  I can't say I hate it.

I will confess however that I embarked on a wee bleach bath a few weeks back - mixing shampoo and a little bleach powder/developer and placing on head for a few minutes - and this seems to be the result.



PS. Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara is the sh*t.

Roger that! :)

  1. I can't help but hate you a bit for how long your hair has gotten - I'm still growing mine out from my "hey, if Rihanna can get away with it..." phase.

    Wore Underage today as well, was asked what I had on and lied rather than say the name. :L

  2. @Lorraine - jesus it has taken me YEARS to get to this point...although I do get it cut quite a lot :)

    haha on the Underage. I understand girl! Florabundance sounds so much more acceptable and thats what i often say :) xx

  4. Crap? Nice try, but you're not fooling me. I dig that outfit, a lot actually. Beauty in simplicity or something along those lines.

    And, frankly, I need those shoes in my life.

  11. I love your outfit! What style tiffany necklace are you wearing? And I agree, even though it sounds a little inappropriate, Underage is the best :D

  23. I can agree - max factor one is a rubbish. Try Estee Lauder one, is kind of ok.

  25. your lashes look absolutely amazing!!!!!

  26. lol, good to hear that I'm not the only one ashamed to say certain names out loud. :) I just think there's something terribly wrong with telling cute little old ladies that come to your shop and ask about make-up that you're wearing "orgasm" on your cheeks...

    Your lashes look amazing, btw. I was going to ask whether you were wearing falsies! Is that the MF in the black tube that has been out quite a while?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think you need a job as a stylist! Forget digital/design ;)

    Your lashes look friggin' AMAZING in the last photo!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love your shoes and jeans, I used to have some Cheap Monday jeans but I have no idea what happened to them, may have to repurchase! I also need to try that mascara!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  33. Had quite of a good laugh at this post! :)

  34. I've used Precleanse in the past and it's really nice but I just found the smell a little too much too bear.
    Have you tried the new MAC Cleanse Off Oil in the green bottle? It's amazing.

  36. You have no idea how jealous I am that you can pretty much wear whatever you want to work. I live for that day. I've had enough of the "business casual" work attire. Until that day comes, I'll just buck the system and wear my inappropriate shoe choices to work. It's my own little form of controlled rebellion.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love your current style, and those wedges are GAH!!! WANT!!!

    Can't believe you were in my city and I never knew. :( Hope you liked our little corner of the world..I <3 it.

    ReplyDelete
  38. had you dyed your hair previous to the little bleaching experiment? i dyed my hair a wee bit dark and this is very intriguing, i just don't want my hair to be splotchy.

  39. Airport shopping is amazing, it just seems so much more exciting even when it's stuff you can buy at selfridges! Although they do have Victorias secret beauty products at Birmingham airport, I shamefully bought two bottles of perfume, a make up palette, a shower gel and two body lotions last time I was passing through! Love your acne shoes by the way!

  40. Damm you Laura (shakes fist), you are one of those people who could probably wear a bin bag and still look so effortlessly stylish and pretty lol! Definitely not a crap outfit I love it especially the jacket can see why its one of your favorite items - I'm saving to hunt down the religion 'owain' leather jacket myself.....

    p.s I want your shoes :)

  41. Laura... Be honest. Are you wearing falsies and/or do you have eyelash extensions in that last pic? Surely the mascara alone could not have made them that full and long!??? If so... how many coats of and did you use a primer? Thks!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. i didnt understand the comment about the MaxFactor mascara, is it good or bad? (sorry im from Mexico, and i speak english, but sometimes the expression conffuse me!!), If its good i have to try it!! its the waterproof or the regular? Miss you in youtube!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. You look good in bloomin' everything Laura! :D

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love rambly posts like this one! :)

    Fab outfit-of-the-day and I'll be definitely following your recommendation on the Max Factor mascara, in fact I've been meaning to try it for some time now!
