I started the spring semester today, and I just didn’t have time to take pictures and set everything.
All the details will be up tomorrow!
The basic outline is you have to be following me, reblog the post that I put up tomorrow, and I’ll use random.org to pick the winner. That’s for “first” place. Second place will be twitter. You have to be following me on Twitter, and re-tweet the message that goes up tomorrow.
I just hit 50 followers (which is not that many in the grand scheme of things, but each of those followers is an actual PERSON which to me is amazing. Fifty whole human beings want to read what I blab about.)
All I have to give away right now are two iPhone 3G/3GS cases that I never used, but no longer have the opportunity to use since I have an iPhone 4.
One of the cases is Lilly Pulitzer and the other one is Lucky Brand. Would ya’ll be interested?
Edit:: Just to clarify, I would be giving them BOTH away to two lovely readers. The first place winner would pick whichever one she wants and then the second place winner would get the other one.
So, I heard some noise outside and then a big truck starting up and I got all excited like “OMG LUSH PACAKGED MUST HAVE BEEN DELIVERED!!!” And I ran downstairs and I could see something by the front door.
This is going to be an installment here, because I work at J.Crew and I’m constantly enamored with things at work.
Wednesday we’re getting in a bunch of new stock, but there were some things that really caught my eye today!
The first thing was a new Timex watch. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find a picture of it online anywhere. I will snap one the next time I am at work. It’s in the style of this watch, but it’s much smaller. It’s about half the diameter, and the face is simpler. We also have adorable interchangeable watchbands.
The second thing was a new pair of SPERRYS! They are the Cormorant Slip-Ons in exclusive colours. We have a bright lemon yellow and a lovely mossy olive green. I was able to snap a picture of the green ones.
Pretty cute, right? I’m planning on getting a pair of these very soon!
Okay. I realize this post makes it seem like I have the taste of a 50 year old woman. I’m sorry. I’ve wanted a Timex Field Watch like that for YEARS and the fact that they have a pint-sized version makes me squiggle about with glee. And as for the shoes, I live up north. We have a LOT of weather, and I can’t wear Ugg boots all winter, and once Spring hits I get tired of wearing Wellies all the time. My calves are a teensy bit too fat for them, and they get really uncomfortable after a few hours.
My skin color is similar to yours and I use Sephora's Sun Disk. Its not too dark or orange and comes in a huge circular palette with a great mirror. It's like $20, I think. I also have their smaller bronzer ($16) in Bora Bora, but you might want to try a lighter color than that. My all time fav bronzer is Kat Von D's, but you might not like it because it does have shimmer. Hope this helps!
Thank you! That’s awesome I’ll definitely be checking that out.
When it comes to shimmer, I LOVE it when it’s summertime and I’m trying to get a sun-kissed glow look, but when it’s just for contouring it makes it look really weird.
I’ve either got the flu or a really bad cold, and I feel awful.
However, it only makes me feel worse when I’m schlepping around in big ugly t-shirts and sweatpants. So today I changed into different lounge clothes and I’m wearing adorable J.Crew pj pants, and an oversized men’s Diesel t-shirt.
Plus I woke up sick today, so I would love to take a lovely bath with them.
From what other people have told me about ordering from Lush UK is that it takes about ten days. I don’t know if that’s business days or not, but to give them the benefit of the doubt I’m not counting Sundays. I also have to consider that I ordered my stuff on Dec. 29th, and then there was new years eve, new years day, and Jan 3rd was a bank holiday in England. So while I placed the order 12 days ago, it’s really only been seven days. If that makes sense.
I JUST WANT MY STUFF SO BAD. I WILL DRIVE TO THE AIRPORT AND GET IT.
I'm snowed in: My favourite Gorg-ifiying activities for snowy/rainy/lazy days at home.
I’ve been snowed in all day, and it’s a good shot I will be tomorrow as well. Now, I’ve had a good ten hours of watching Skins and lolling about, and I’ve gotten bored. Right now I’m having a spot of lemon tea, and then I’m going to get to beautifying!
These are some of my favourite things to do on days like this while I watch my shows!
Try new hairstyles (usually from LetsMakeItUp1 ‘s youtube channel)
Experiment with dramatic makeup (Once i ‘tested’ fake tanning by bronzing my entire face)
Hot shower (With a tea bag! Try popping one in your soap dish, it’s lovely)
As I mentioned on my twitter, I picked up two items from the Cham Pale collection this weekend.
I grabbed I Get No Kick Kohl Liner and the Vintage Selection Paint Pot.
I’ve used these items every day since I got them, sometimes just the two products on their own with mascara, and sometimes in conjunction with the UD Naked palette and I REALLY like these products. I think that the paint pot is so so pretty just by itself on the lid (especially because of the shimmer) and the staying power is astounding. This is my first paint pot, and I’m certainly going back for more.
The liner I’m slightly less impressed by, but that’s only because I don’t see it being very versatile. Since it’s a kohl liner, it is kinda smudgy, but it is a wonderful colour and I think once I experiment a bit more with it, it will grow on me.
