spring fling – essentials for the season

Published March 28, 2012 by laurrx

the weather in scotland has been gorgeous this week. there was constant blue skies and the sun was out all day, in work i was sunning myself and actually got some colour. not bad for March, i thought!

but finally spring has sprung and the sun had shone, so i thought i’d share some of my favourite spring/summer products…

No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream Normal/Dry, Medium
so, i only got this like a week ago but i already LOVE it. i think i’ve used it a bit more than i normally would because of the weather.  this BB Cream is SPF 15 and has 5* UVA technology which protects the skin. it’s great for this season and the weather we’ve been having – of which i hope we get more of – with it being really light on the skin. i use this in the day time, and set it with my MAC powder. with this BB Cream i don’t use concealer, well really in this weather i don’t use concealer (only because i’ve yet to come across a good one that will stay!), i only don’t use concealer because the shade of this i have seems to cover up enough with just one layer.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion – Original
primer is a great invention in the warm weather, there’s NOTHING worse than extreme panda eyes and smudged eyeshadow when you’re getting your tan on. this is the best primer i’ve ever used and it’s UD’s #1  best selling product and i can fully see why. primer potion makes colours pop and it’d make the colour on your eyes look great in this season. i’m sure i read that pastel colours were in and there’s nothing i dislike more than pastel eyeshadow, but after trying it out using the primer it looks really cute and would look great on holiday or just in the park with your friends, or sitting in a beer garden finding your next spring fling…

NARS Blush – Orgasm
i am just in love with this pinky-peachy-corally coloured blush. this picture does NOT do the colour justice (give the NARS website a visit and check it out). it highlights the cheeks as well with the subtle accents of gold shimmer. it’s a great colour for the time of year, really natural and bright. a big plus for this being a blush and faint highlighter, is that it’s a 2-1 which means the less product packed on your face when it’s warm or humid outside

MAC Lipstick – Girl About Town
the things i love the most about MAC lipsticks are probably…
1. the smell
2. the pigmented colour
3. how moisturising they are.
the strong pigmentation really helps in the weather and maybe fun spring activities, where you’d forget to re-apply so it really stays and you don’t need to worry about it. the lipsticks are so moisturising which is great, especially for people like me who forget to use product to prevent the lips from being burnt. and after the lips are burned they need to be moisturised and this not only helps the burnt lips, looks amazing on…the smell is just a bonus.

Some fun flower hair clips from various shops
i love putting flowers in my hair, at the weekend me and my sisters were rocking about Aberdeen with daffodils stuck in our hair. it always looks so summery and pretty. i need to stack up on them for the summer – TITP and Zante – so i can shove them in my hair for something cute to add to the style.

hope you loved my spring fling blog, what’s your favourite product for the sun and the season?

Movie/Duvet Day

Published September 29, 2011 by laurrx

Tomorrow I’m off and i am super excited! This week in work had been hurrendous, i dont know why everyone needs their groceries every day! buy in bulk people.

I work in Morrisons and really, really, really, really… (i could go on and on), REALLY hate it! i need a new job so, so, so much!! But i cannot devour too much into why i hate the job (or i should and get fired – kidding.) but i do.

but i have been feeling so down, and i think i deserve my movie/duvet day off tomorrow. Me and Nicholas are going to watch House season 6, Star Wars and I’m going to try get him to watch the Scary Movie Quadrilogy (uuuuhh sonnnn!!!).

Also i want to bake lots and lots and lots of lil cupcakes and chocolate cake. And i most definetely want to stay in my pyjamas all. day. long.

It’s also a work night out tomorrow night and we are totally boycotting it. if i dont like spending time with my colleagues in work, why would i want to socialize with them??

I hate two-facedness and bitchiness. i’ll raise my hand and i say i have done my fair share of being a complete bitch. but it is unreal some of the bitching i come across sometimes. if i happen to come across someone who i feel i dont particularly like (and i do know quite a few people like that) i tend not to bother talking to them. what riles me is people who are so lovely to other folk and the minute this poor soul has turned away, theres a big butcher night right there in their back. it makes me sick. it’s a waste of time and energy and love.

you can’t love and hate everyone. but its not like you either love someone or hate them. i hate very few people. there is one girl i hate in my life and it is VERY called for. my dad always says “hates not the right word.” for this girl, its not enough.

this is getting rambly and i like it. i like to write my thoughts and i’d love to inspire your thoughts. i need inspired!

my mum keeps asking “what do you want to do?” and honestly i cannot answer the question. i’d love to travel but i’m such a home-girl. i’m too close to my sister, i’d miss her too much. i hate being away from Nic, i’d miss him too much. and i love my friends, i’d miss them too much. (never mind the fact i actually dont even have the money!!)

if i could travel? Australia, Canada, Caribbean, Africa, ALL of France…

I have only been to France once and for two nights, to Paris. And i fell in love with the city. It’s so gorgeous and it’s just amazing. Everyone just chilling out by the Sienne and just chilling out in Jardin Du Luxembourg with their picnics. It’s so me – lazy!!!

I wish i could move to Paris. Live in a little flat with a small balcony (like in Sex and the City, the one Carrie stands on as she looks at the Eiffel Tower) with lovely flowers that will be taken care of by not me and a butler. Yes a butler i will have and a driver. and i’ll meet with my gorgeous French friends and discuss (in French) everything gorgeous and make up and fashion and shopping and books and love…

and now i’m dreaming. sitting in my box room with my box bed and box life.

And still trying to love life…
