Here is that haul that I promised! It has a mix of the wonderful gifts I got for my 21st birthday, as well as a couple of things I purchased myself and some awesome pieces PLNDR sent me last month! I'll definitely be including some of these pieces when it warms up a bit and I can leave the flat without five layers. Seriously, so ready for the sunshine. Or even above freezing temperatures because I am definitely too cold to function.
Oh, and just for you, blog readers, here is a photo of me wearing the Middle Earth dress. This is just a phone picture that I took to send to my mom, so it's nothing special, but how COOL is this dress? Definitely one of the best things I've ever owned. (Can we also take a minute to acknowledge the fact that there is a Hobbit poster behind me and I'm also wearing Arwen's Evenstar? I am a caricature of myself.)
My new video is an outfit of the day from when I was in Disneyland Paris for my 21st birthday a few weeks back! Just a short and silly video. I'll have my birthday haul up (I know, so late!) in a few days time. Hope all of you lovely readers are well! x
Long have I been an avid lover of creme shadows. I was first introduced to them about four years ago through MAC's paint pots. Since then, I've branched out and tried others, but always love coming back to my beloved Painterly or Bare Study. In a recent collection, MAC put out about ten new (or re-promoted) shades, so I had to pick-up a couple.
I chose these two because I use creme shadows for every day looks and these are perfect base shades for 'looks' I do daily. The Vintage Selection I know is a re-promote that I have never had, but it reminded me of Benefit's RSVP which I believe is now discontinued. I've worn it almost every day since and I just love how it looks with MAC's Omega shadow in the crease (another favourite of mine). When I'm not wearing that one, it's 'Let's Skate.' While VS is a perfect every day all over shade, Let's Skate really brightens up the eyes and is such a pretty, shimmery shade that, on my pale skin, almost just give the lids a glimmer. It's almost like not wearing makeup, but still brightens and makes your eyes shine. They both are quite shimmery, so apologies if that is not your thing. I am a fan of matte, satin, shimmer, whatever, so these are definitely both staples in my collection now!
Sorry for the rushed post, but I'm off to meet some uni friends. Have a fantastic weekend, everyone! x
