Clinique Pop lipsticks: first impressions

Clinique says: Luxurious yet weightless formula (that) merges bold, saturated colour with a smoothing primer. 

Laura says: Thin, maybe even slightly greasy feeling lipstick that underwhelms on first application and doesn't quite compare to competitor offerings. 

This was my initial point of view….

#ootd and handbag love

Yesterday I wore a hat and I didn't feel like a plonker.

Hats may quite possibly be my new thing.

..and part 2

One blitz in Space NK and one MAC online order later and here we find ourselves at the UK haul part 2. It's been a few days since the damage was done so I have had a little bit of time to form an opinion. Here goes...

UK Haul…part 1?

There is just so. much. choice! I have been in the UK for a couple of days and that's the first thing that hit me - in the supermarket, in the drugstore, wherever, the choices are endless. I hit Boots in Tunbridge Wells today and had made some online orders - together, I think I have enough products to justify a haul post, right? :)

In no particular order, let's get on with the breakdown. Oh and if it makes any difference, everything was purchased with my own money - no artfully placed content this neck of the woods.

Out and About #4

After a few weeks of diligent healthy eating I have adapted my epicurean mantra to sound something like "give me all the food". If healthy food is defined as #cleaneating then this was most definitely #dirtyeating. Hell yes.

Topshop, I can't quit you!

More often than not I feel too old, too fat and too plebby for Topshop. I'm that person that holds up a garment and asks: "this is a top right?" only to realise that it is in fact a flippy little dress destined for someone 15 years younger.

I will however never give up. I check the "New in" section of the website on a semi-regular basis (i.e., like twice a day) and some recent determined online shopping has resulted in two new gems.

How to grow long hair quickly...

Well here we are again. A whole load of fake hair has been once more been affixed to my head. This time though I think we got it just right.

Ah the mini break! I haven't indulged in one of these for a long time because, truth be told, I don't like to leave Roger and Rose, (Goodness knows how people leave children! I can barely leave my dogs for 24 hours!) but it was high time that we got away for a change of scene.
