I made it to Twenty. I can hardly believe it. This blog has been my love child for over 2 years now; it’s the execution that’s been the struggle. Woo for accomplishments, however small they may seem!
(note: no accomplishment is ever really small. celebrate every victory.)
Smiling tons lately because it feels more and more like Spring, which is ABSURD for February where I’m from…
Spring Fever means florals!
This is one of my favourite shirts for obvi print reasons;
also it’s light and airy – perfect for Spring vibe-age.
Is that even a word? Vibe-age? Well, it is now.
Also, absolutely obsessed with these suede fringed booties from Aldo ❤
Something in my closet that is ACTUALLY IN SEASON for once.
(Style: WADIA -> Get them HERE)
I seem to have a favourite pose, but hey, if it works….right?
This leather jacket is from H&M (similar style HERE), and is easily the MOST worn item in my entire wardrobe. It’s been in my closet for a couple of years, and if I recall correctly I got it on clearance for less than 20 bucks. Super deal, right?! Fashion doesn’t have to break the bank, ladies (and gentlemen) 😉
Classic piece, goes with everything (literally), always in style.
Speaking of H&M, if you have never purchased a pair of Superstretch Treggings (trouser/leggings) THEN WHAT ARE YOU LIVING FOR.
These are a must-have staple. They stretch, they are black, did I mention they stretch?
They are also only $20…
So you really need to grab a pair. You’re welcome.
Something else we need to chat about before you return to your Hump Day activities.
You probably already know since I’m a bit of a late bloomer in this department.
Recently got a sample of the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Original)
(find it HERE)
I’ve tried other primers in the past, and even become a little creative in making primers from things that aren’t actually primers… I’ve never been impressed.
Then this little purple tube of magic liquid fell into my black and white striped bag and I was blown away.
IT LASTED THROUGH A SWEAT FEST. LITERALLY.
I wanted to really test it out, so I threw it on before my Zumba class.
I used it under MAC’s ORB shadow* and Kat Von D’s Ink Liner in Bukowski.
*(probably not the best choice since it’s exactly the same colour as my skin but hindsight is you know…)
Guys, if you knew how much I sweat in my class your mouth would be agape like mine was. It did not BUDGE. Not a crease or a smudge what-so-ever.
I even had to include some heavy elbow-grease when I attempted to remove it;
NOTHING was taking it off (not even my make up remover wipes).
Moral of the Story:
If you’re looking for a primer, then this UD product is the jackpot. Pick it up.
Or shame me for only discovering it now. Same-same.
Note: These photos (^^^) were taken *after* my Zumba class, not before.
