Fall Favourites

Published November 16, 2011 by laurrx

i just want to share all my fall favourites, i don’t want to have to a monthly favourite blog every month. i change my mind like i change my clothes really. So i just went through my hair and make up products and pulled out what i think i have been using most in this season.

 armani diamonds perfume. i have wearing this non stop. its such a gorgeous smell, and it’s not summery. i always wear florally/sweet smelling perfumes but this one is perfect for fall/winter as its got notes of vanilla in it. i am not a fan of vanilla in the slightest but vanilla candles always remind me of Christmas.

these two i have been using for the same reasons. i honestly feel like since it has gotten colder outside i look paler than ever. i fake tanned to go out for my cousins birthday and it was so rushed, so it was very bad. so i’ll need to pay more attention when tanning next time. i always apply hoola to my face, really lightly if its a normal day or a bit more for going out along with contouring and everything like that. i hate looking pale, i feel like i look really ill and tired. so i need colour and its alot healthier than sunbeds!!!

i am an absolute victim of chapped lips in the winter. never mind vaseline (unless its bedtime and its smeared ALL over your face!) this is amazing. i got it about 4 years ago in spain for about 2euros. its really good and smells of parma violets (you know those sweets that apparently taste like soap…they help heart burn by the way!). i also love carmex and vaseline but this has to trump both.

as well as chapped lips in the winter i get dry hands. the l’occitaine hand cream on the right it amazing. i have never used l’occitaine products until this and i only got this free from a magazine. it really helps my dry hands this season. and of course my hands need to be clean clean clean. i am not a germophobe but before i eat or when i feel like my hands are quite dirty i’ll use this. it’s cute with my star sign on it and everything. i got it from bath and body works from the Florida outlets! i love it.

this is a benefit primer, and i know i always bang on about the Lancome primer i love but this one is really good to put on with your foundation. like literally mixing it in with it. its a kind of pink colour, and it kind of brightens the face up. and during winter it’s always nice to have a little more colour or glow in the season. it also smells like raspberrys or something.

i wanted to change the faves a bit and not just do make up and stuff. i borrowed GG season 4 off my friend, Joanne and started watching it on Friday and finished on Sunday…i clearly had no life that whole weekend there. i also borrowed the Friends boxset from Linda and i have kind of been watching it in the background, as i have seen them all before. but just keeping them on is a nice distraction from what i should be doing like tidying, searching for jobs, applying to uni…etc etc.
speaking of jobs. i left my job. blah blah blah. so i left. that was me telling yous why and me ending the story with “so i left” cos i am so so so so so…. sick of telling the story of why i hate Morrisons.
i will need to have some sort of constructive blog post put together with proper paragraphs and not an absolute riot like they are. i feel so bad for rachel when she is asked to seperate the hangers….
anyway, i hope this was  delight to read…my friends have all discovered my blog this week and find it just hysterical.

So, its Friday night BLOGOC’CLOCK! Parents are away so me and Linda have planted our bumbums on the couch since 6pm (its now 10.30pm) with an Indian takeaway and “The Other Guys” – i highly recommend watching that movie, it is hysterical! I don’t ever want to move. Now the Chris Moyle’s Quiz Show is on, one of my new faves and I cannot wait to watch the one with America Ferrera!

Today I had my job interview (I’ll tell you about it when I find out about the job). Just keep your fingers crossed for me!

Well, I decided that if i got the job I want to spoil myself and (not like i need anymore make up) I want to buy this:  Urban Decay Naked Palette

I have seen a few YouTube gurus using this and i love it!! I love how with this palette you can create a look for everyday, nights out, dinners out, work, play, dates etc.

Also there was another small palette from YSL i like.

I was walking past the counter in Frasers yesterday and the middle colour caught my eye and i just stopped in my tracks and stared at it. The assistant then came over and chatted to me about it and asked me if i wanted my eyes done…i lied a little bit and said i was on my lunch, but i might just go back on Monday and get it done! I was fairly interested until she told me it was £40. Thats just a NO NO for any types of make up.

So this was just a short blog with a little up to date on the job-ness. But also if anyone has tried the Naked Palette or the Ombres 5 Lumières please give me a short review and maybe tell me if you’d recommend it.

The Town.

Hey, hey, hey…i’m what’s happening
pass that dutch, pass that dutch…

Anyhoo! Hi guys hope we’re all well.

So today I had an Open Day/Interview Making thingy jig in town and I’d like to share the wonders of Glasgow City Centre (it’s right at this very moment when i’m fully regretting not taking pictures).

Firstly, PET HATE! Walking up/down Buchanan street and people giving out leaflets advertising:
make up
freaking painting!!!
Are all right up in amongst your face when its wet and you have an interview you’re stressing about and you just plain don’t enjoy having to take your earphones out!! Also one girl approached me at Starbucks chatting away then acted like i was the rude one when i took my earphones out. Now if i wanted to be contacted with my head would be UP! it wasnt!! Then further on down Buchanan Street and St Enoch Centre, i stood outside buttoning myself and getting my umbrella out and one girl fully weaved through a few people just to get to me…and she was going on about the same thing the Starbucks gal was! So i’d had enough – these two girls were not the only two – and said “yeah, i spoke to a girl up there” and she just beamed at me (obviously thinking that i had agreed and signed up for it). Her fave fell dramatically when i said “i said i wasnt interested, sorry” and smiled my best smile. I understand people have to traffic stop but just NO.

Then i was a tad early for my interview so i stood under some shelter at M&S and just people watched for 15 minutes or so. One guy – true Glaswegian this one – took about 10 minutes to walk past me, as for every one step he took he stumbled two steps back while his friend was going “george, moan mate! moan pal. Gonnae hurry up!”. I am sometimes mortified to live here.


These days i have to say i am surprised and also impressed and proud of the Scots this past week. I can’t believe all these riots that are taking place down south right now. I think that they should be well embarrassed and ashamed of themselves. Apparently some guy up here has been arrested for attempting to start a riot. Thats what they need down there, some of the “Glesga Polis”… They’ll set them straight. I was a bit worried riots might start up here but my mum did say the police wouldn’t stand for it. And today Melo has recieved a BBM saying that there “might” be riots and police have went into Frasers/Zara etc to clear the window displays. So we decided “no we don’t believe that”.

dun dun dun!!!

I went into Frasers to visit my friend who works at Clarins and he told me that Prada and Gucci had been stripped bare on Tuesday night and all the floats had to be sent upstairs and not kept in the tills.

NOW, what do we believe? Could they start up in here? GADZ 😦 i hope not, i’ll not leave my house. And i need to party on Sunday night! Wooo!

Anyway enough of this blab and time for some sleep.

Night y’allllll
