The Best Nude Lipstick

mac-jubilee

I’ve been searching SO LONG for the perfect nude lipstick shade and I now I’ve finally found it! It’s MAC’s Jubilee in Lustre which is flawless. The colour is a peachy brown which is quite subtle so you can build it up.

The colour totally suits my colourings which is dark hair, blue eyes, pale skin and freckles

ASOS Black Top

Unfortunately I have to say the shopping in Melbourne isn’t very good! Yes there is a Topshop, but I think either I’m growing out of it all the quality of clothing is getting worse. Other then that there isn’t that many places to shop or maybe I just haven’t found where to go. So after many failed shopping attempts I resorted to doing an ASOS order. In typical ASOS style most of the stuff didn’t fit properly (a “size 6” was too big) or it looked different to the pictures on the website but this black long sleeve top did escape being sent back. This long black sleeve top replaces another one that I bought over 15 years ago and as you can imagine was looking a bit worse for wear.

I know this isn’t the most exciting purchase but it’s a really handy item as it looks good with jeans and high waisted skirts. Buy it here

March Monochrome Purchases

Today was the first day of my payday weekend- yippee! My first paycheque from my new job- the first full time job I’ve had in over 2 years!!rsa8357_black

I bought this Black Cotton Spandex Bodysuit with a low back from American Apparel- love it! It should look great with all my high waisted skirts and trousers. I just need to find a bra that’s going to work with this.rsa8357_0125T02EWHT_largeI also bought this lovely lightweight white cashmere vest from Topshop- this is now the third one I own- the others are in black and baby blue. Perfect for exercise and sunshine!25T02EWHT_2_large81HBC1iZXrL._SL1500_

Carrying on with my workout purchases I also got these cute Nike Gym Vintage shorts- all my other workout trousers are capris but thought a pair of shorts would be good for my visits to the physio and for those Tracy Anderson exercises where you need to hold to the ball at the back of your knee to get a bit more grip.nike-7560-617521-1

And finally I bought these monochrome flower/triangled Nike Epic Run Printed Tights/Capris. I’m wearing my capris every day to cycle to and from work in and to exercise in so I thought I could afford myself another pair.

Kiki K Purchases

My fiance’s mother had bought some cute writing paper from Kiki K so I thought I would have a look inside. I needed to replace my notebook from Typo which had fallen apart. So I bought this cute little pink leather one and….

This recipe folder caught my eye. I have loads of Perricone and Junger recipe print outs so it will be great to have them in a cute little folder.recipe_organiser_styled2 web_let_s-eat-open

December MAC purchases

You know what it’s like; you have a favourite shade of lipstick, eyeshadow or blusher and once it’s used up you really struggle to replace it. I’ve been searching for a nice pink eyeshadow to replace a small pink eyeshadow bought for me years ago in a make up set. I’m still endeavouring to buy toxin free make up so this made the search even harder- an eyeshadow from Illamasqua was pretty much bang on but a look at the ingredients revealed that it contained parabens so it was not to be! I finally settled on this beautiful MAC shade Sweet Acting which is a Pressed Pigment and is lovely and sparkly. I’m also pretty happy that it’s MAC as it’s my favourite make up brand!

The lady in the shop demonstrated that the eyeshadow works a lot better over an eye primer as it gave the colour something to hold onto. I had previously just used ysl’s touche eclat as an eyeshadow primer but after trying a real primer I’ve noticed a huge difference; eye make up is so much easier to apply, including liquid eyeliner on top of eyeshadow, there’s no smudged and it lasts all day without disappearing into the creases- I’m definitely sold! I bought MAC’s painterly Pro longwear paint pot which is the lightest shade and works under all eyeshadows.

These specs are from Urban Attitude- I’ve been after some spectacles for a while to replace pairs lost/broken. They’re just for pretend/hiding my face when it’s too dark for sunglasses.

sunglasses

And FINALLY I have a pair of sunglasses!!! That aren’t a men’s, lesser pair that I don’t really like. I’ve been after some cats eye glasses since I broke my pair which I loved! And who would’ve thought my much sought after glasses would be from the KARDASHIAN Kollection!!!!
