What a perfectly lazy Sunday afternoon, sat plumped up against pillows with my beloved blogs at my fingertips and that classic Bedknobs and Broomsticks on the tv! I need to take this opportunity to say wow 50 followers....I'm amazed that you all want to have a nosy into what I'm up to and want to say thank you very much for your support. Thank you!
Phew it feels like ages since I've done a proper post....y'know, the one where I ramble on and on and bore you all to tears? Yup, that's the one! Well here I am again with another for you - enjoy!
So on Thursday I headed to Brighton with my bestie who was eager to spend spend spend in American Apparel...can't say I shared the sentiment. (a) I'm not a dancer type to be running around in a leotard (not pretty, trust me) (b) Is it me or did everything seem a bit overpriced? I know Toppers whacks their prices up but I feel like their clothes do have a certain quality to them; the fabrics always feel soft and they don't lose their shape. Not saying that AA will lose their shape, but the colours overall left me uninspired and anything I did like was a whopping £50+! £60 for a cardigan from a high street store?! I'll pass thanks. And instead, I'll spend my money on....
MAC! Ahh my old friend Make-up Art Cosmetics, how you make me smile. After seeing the lipstick spread with Jessica Lowndes in this month's In Style magazine (which comes with free Body Shop bronze or rose cheek and lip tint btw), I decided that I had to have a new deep, vampy lippie. According to MAC's director of make-up artistry, Terry Barber, in In Style: "I think make-up artists are bored with the smoky eye and are playing with dark lip shades instead". Cue my trip to MAC with both my bestie and the shop assistant trailing behind as I searched for the perfect shade. Cyber, Hang-Up and Media were at the top of my list, and Media made it into my shopping bag. What do you think? I felt unassisted in my quest for my inner vamp. The shop assistant was lovely, but kept directing me to glosses for a "sheerer colour". Am I rocking this trend on my own? Or perhaps it isn't a trend after all?! Would you go for dark lips?
So there we have it. The rain came out just as we were leaving. I took it as a sign that I was destined to spend money, as even the weather was on my side! After a £9 carpark fee and massive traffic jam on the M25 we made it home. Tired, arms laden with bags and purses much much lighter. A very successful day methinks!
Where is your favourite place to go shopping? I've just watched the famous "Port-o-bell-o Road, Port-o-bell-o Road" scene in Bedknobs & Broomsticks. Ah the magic of Disney, which is your favourite film?
