I recently got a new job (I start today!) and I’m already dreaming of payday. Although the pay isn’t much more than my old job, it’s still about £1 an hour more (doesn’t sound like much, but its a tenner extra on a ten hour shift!). I won’t get paid for another 2 months, but I’m very much looking forward to it.
As some of you may know, I’m moving flat again in about a week. The flat we’re moving to isn’t the poshest of flats. An estate agent would say its “decorated neutrally throughout”, but in reality, its jut not decorated. Cream carpets and white walls, and nothing else. Time to get my thinking hat on!

As I have been moving as well as working around the clock recently I have kind of been ignoring all things beauty; My skincare regime has gone completely out of the window. Now I’m starting to get settled I’m once again lusting after products.
one&two; I’m a bleach-aholic. If I don’t have lilac/pink/pastel blue hair then I want to be as white as can be. As you can imagine this takes its toll on my hair. I have heard nothing but good things about the antisnap so this is first on my to-buy list as soon as I get paid. Fudge violet shampoo is part of my current mission for “so white it’s almost grey/purple” hair, I have the Provoke twice a week brightener but I want to see if this will do something more to my hair.
three: I’m a cat-liner addict. I bought Smashboxes gel eyeliner a while back but the brush I was using it with has gone to brush-heaven so I’m in the market for a new one. I love my Stippling brush by Real Techniques so I think I may try this one unless anyone has any other suggestions.
four: I have nearly no eyebrows. Honestly. I’m very, very fair when it comes to body hair, I may as well have no eyebrows altogether. I’m using a Rimmel eyebrow pencil at the moment but it’s just not doing it for me. I love my Smashbox eyeliner so I want to try their brow-tech. I was considering a brow ink but I’m concerned I would end up with “Charlie from Busted/Fightstar eyebrows”.
five&six: I have nail envy. I have little stubs for nails and because I use my hands a lot at work, home and uni they snap as soon as they look pretty. It’s soul destroying. However, I bought boots 200 fake nails set and I LOVE them. They’re thick so they don’t bend like cheap nails and the glue they come with is amazing. Now I have some fake finger ends I’m feeling some pretty nail colours; these two are first on my agenda!
seven&eight: General lusts. Accessorize and GOSH have always impressed me and I have a thing for purple/lilac/pink at the moment. I feel when I reach my lilac/silver/sowhiteithurts hair they will go lovely!
nine: After hearing EssieButton talk about this a few months ago, I can’t get my mind off it. Apparently it is a perfect contour colour for pale skin and as ghost queen It needs to be mine. I long for the high, gorgeous cheekbones my fiance has (I hate you), unfortuneltly I have hamster cheeks so I must fake it. I can’t find this in the UK though so I may have to trawl Ebay for it.
And finally ten: I have never liked LUSH. Ever. But a friend of ours from Shetland came down in February/March and as their shopping up there, to put it lightly, is shocking she spent more time in LUSH than is reccomended. By anyone. She purchased the Ocean Salt and forced me to try it (Okay so It doesn’t take much convincing to get me to try a product, whatever.) I loved it. I don’t want to become a LUSH fanboy but my-oh-my I need me some Ocean Salt Scrub!
Roll on payday, that’s all I can say!
What’s everyone lusting after at the moment?
also, I was wondering if any of my lovely followers can recommend me foundation. My Revlon Colour Stay is almost done so I wanted to try something new. I’ve been looking on the Mac website for wee while now but can’t decide so I’m open to any recommendations, high-street or something a bit pricier. I have fairly dry skin, I’m very pale but have horridly rosy cheeks. Thank you to anyone who suggests anything!
After reading a plethora of blogposts about LOOK’s exclusive Primark collection preview I decided to have a donder through, and boy was I pleased!
Here’s a few pieces I picked out that I will be looking for in my Primark as soon as money comes my way:
I’m really liking the floral boots, they remind me of Jeffery Campbel’s Litas without the wooden heel, almost. They’ll be the closed I’ll ever get to Litas anyway!
I’ve really been into Primark since we got one in Edinburgh. I pretty much only shop in charity shops and Primark now. I’ll never say no to a bargain! I’m glad their new collection looks just as good as their last. I can see right where my next paycheck is going!
Do you think Primark has become one of the better places to shop recently? I think they’re bang on trend for the most part!
