Sunday Coffee Morning

Hello my Lovelies!

I hope you've all had a great week, have you been up to anything fun?

I had a pretty hum drum week apart from Thursday.

Anna and I met for dinner, but before-hand we went to Boots and were treated like shoplifters. You know when shop assistants think you're going to steal when 3 of them ask 'Hi, can I help you?' (insert snooty voice and a disgusted up and down look) in the space of 2 minutes (and I mean that literally). The first lady who asked meant well, as we were standing next to her counter. The second seemed to be a manager, she swooped in the second we picked up a Dior bottle. Finally the third nosey crow, whom we told several times we were just browsing, kept trying to move us away from the fragrances we were interested to the ones she thought was 'more in our price range'. I'm a grown woman with a job, I can afford to shell out for the new Marc Jacobs Daisy LED, But I'd like to know if I like it first cos it is quite expensive. But no she wanted us to take lady Millionaire (or what ever that crap was). It came in an ugly gold bottle and actually smelled like mold spores. The service in Boots sucks, and if it wasn't for all the benefits I get from the rewards scheme i would take my business elsewhere.

I'm gonna stop ranting I feel the rage resurfacing.

But the rest of the evening was lovely. We went to Pizza Express and I had a pizza called Il Padrino (I think). It was so pretty and delicious. Then we had cheese cake for dessert, and I swear they serve the best cheese cake in Aberdeen. And we took advantage of the free hot drink with your desert, Anna had hot chocolate which was huge, and I had a latte which was so nice, way better than Starbucks any day.

I also dyed my hair yesterday. The colour is called Black Cherry, I'll post a picture later. It looks like the kind of colour that might fade to a pretty raspberry colour :).

Anyways, I'm away to get ready to go into town and get packaging supplies, I've been meaning to all week and just haven't had time.

I'll probably do a few posts later on, I need to do an update on my diet plan (which is going well btw).

'Til then.

Love and Bugs

My Favourite Pink Lipsticks


Ysl - Nude Beige

A beautiful neutral pink with a cream finish.

Revlon - Pink Pout
One of my Summer favourites, this is a blue toned matt pink number. Especially pretty with Revlon's Lilac Pastelle layered over the top.

Revlon - Pink in the Afternoon

Beautifully pigmented with a coral base.

N07 - Grace

There's no other way to describe this than a strawberry milkshake for the the lips.

Rimmel - Pink Blush

Another Summer favourite. Blue toned pink with a creamy finish.

Rimmel - Vintage Pink

This Picture doesn't do the colour justice. This lipstick in reality is more plum based, more pigmented and more glossy than this picture.

I hope you all enjoyed this post, let me know if you want to see more like it.

Let me know what your favourite pink lippies are.

March Empties

Hello my Lovelies! I've decided to stop the project in favour of sensible thinking.I'm still trying to finish up as many products as possible, but I going to let myself buy what I want as long as I'm sensible about it.

I remembered to take a picture of all the products I finished last month. After I threw out the empties there was suddenly a ton of space on my bathroom shelf. It spurs me on to see the space reappearing.

Go have a look on your shelves and see how many nearly finished products you can find. Tryst me, you'll be surprised.

Love and Bugs
