Birthday splurges

So as a birthday present to myself I bought myself two treats in the airport. Yves Saint Laurent mascara & Chanel lipstick. Have come to the realisation that spending a little more on products is much better for my skin! 

The mascara is ‘Faux Cils’ in waterproof black and it is AMAZING!! The brush looks a bit shit, esp compared to some high street brands, but it gives me insanely long lashes! I have quite long lashes anyway, but this is unreal!!! No need for falsies at all! 

Proof!! 


(Please excuse the eyebrows – they are due a tidy in the beauticians – and the startled expression!)
I also bought this Chanel lippy. It’s a lovely subtle pink, and moisturises the lips with a lovely rose scent. The fact that it’s a stilo means that it is idiot proof for application which is also a win!! 

So there be my splurges!! 
‘Til next time……

Outfit of the day 20/09/2015

Today I was on a quick fire round trip to London to meet my new nephew (& hopefully get a cuddle with his older brother & my sister in at the same time!) so comfy was high on priority list!!

   

(Excuse the airport bathroom mirror selfie, didn’t think himself would appreciate the light being put on at 5am for a mirror selfie!)

 
Blanket cape is from Oasis (Spring 2015 – but they’ve very similar ones in at the moment!), checked shirt is men’s from Tommy Hilfiger – love a mans shirt as they’re so much longer & better across the shoulders (& bust), long tanks (grey & dark purple) are both from Jack Wills, dark indigo jeans are from Levis Curve, ankle boots are from New Look, orange bag is Longchamp & my watch is DKNY.

  
And these are the amazing products that made me look human at 5am & stayed put until I got home at 1am -after a delayed flight! (The 17 blusher is actually one I use for eyeshadow as it doesn’t suit on my cheeks) 
‘Til next time……
