Doctor, Help Me Please?
I usually make a mental list of make-up items to buy. Currently, my top 3 are a Smashbox Primer, a Nars Blusher, and a Nars Bronzer. I have even sorted out the money for them too. Next on my list is the Benefit product, Benetint, there was also Mascara on the list. Ellie and I went straight to the Benefit counter yesterday, as my top 3 products can only be bought online (except there is a Smashbox department in some Boots stores in the UK now :) ) and there, the lovely Lady applied the Benetint product to my cheeks and lips, and the 'They're Real' Mascara, which I had heard so much about. I loved the Benetint product, but HATED - in contrast to EVERYONE ELSES opinion - the Mascara! My Mum and Ellie both said it looked really nice, and, to be fair to the product, it wasn't bad. In fact, it was actually really good, if this is the look you are going for. They made my eyes completely stand out compared to any other feature of my face, and I just don't know why I didn't like it, it may be that I am more of a lips person. Or it could be because I think the more subtle the make-up is, the better it is, and I felt like my eye-lashes were Spiders legs. I normally criticize when I see people with Mascara like this, so I didn't want to be a hypocrite. I don't want to put you off the product, I just think that it wasn't for me, but I bet it suits everyone else! So as the Mascara put me in a strange/self-conscious mood, I didn't want to buy the Benetint - which I completely regret now! So next time I go to Derby Westfield Centre, I am going to purchase!
After my traumatic(I may be over-exaggerating a little bit)/mind-boggling experience at Boots, I wondered into La Senza - my fave underwear shop. Even better, it had a 'half price sale' sign on the front display. I found a delicious bra and pant duo - like really gorgeous, words cannot describe - but they didn't have my bra size :( I'm not sure if this is just me, but when things little things - such as the shop not having your size - go bad for you one mood you're in, everything else seems ugly and awful. In the end, I didn't buy anything from the shop (this will go down in history as the first time I have been in one of the shops and not bought anything!). That is my “I need a Doctor” bit of the post done – I think.
My Mum, Ellie and I found ourselves wandering around not doing anything productive, so I suggested that we went into Next to look for some shoes for me to wear to my cousins wedding this Saturday, and a top for my Mum to wear to the same event. And golly gosh! This did cheer me up :)
Mum found a really lovely top to wear, and I found some lovely shoes and a matching clutch bag to wear too. These are the shoes:
Next up is this scrumptious clutch:
So after Next, we went in to New Look for Ellie to find some tops for her holiday to Croatia next week (lucky girl!) Ellie picked up 4 tops for £12 in the sale! How ace is that? I had already seen this beauty last week:
As well as bags, I am addicted to nail polishes! I have been told on many occasions by different people that no-one else they know has such a nail polish collection, which I find hard to believe to be honest. I have seen these nail polishes for quite a while now, and I was dying to try, so I decided to treat myself to these 3 colours they had in because I hadn't bought any other make-up:
So they are my buys for yesterday :) I know, I know, it looks like I was being a right brat that day! But I promise I wasn't! I paid for this myself, and we all had a lovely day. And I am so happy with my buys I just think I wasn't in the mood for buying something I wasn't certain on. Have you ever been in one of those moods?
