Woo I’m on holiday for one whole week! Can you tell I’m a bit happy about this? It’s my birthday on Tuesday, tonight I’m having some people over for cocktails and then I’m jetting off to Paris on Tuesday for two days. Happy days!
On Sunday night I stayed over at my mum’s so I got lots of lovely Murphy cuddles (after I’d taking some antihistamines!). We watched Crufts. Murphy was NOT into it.
Pancake Day has rapidly turned into Pancake Month. Yums.
Speaking of yum, I’m still working my way through my Bomb Cosmetics box. I used the Martian Skies Bath Mallow (smelt like raspberries) and the Power to the Parma Bath Brulee (smelt like parma violets obvs). Both very lovely and softening.
I caught Wake in Fright at work on Monday. It’s an Australian film from 1971 and it is grim. A brutal look at life in a brutal environment, the Australian Outback. A weekend of gambling, drinking, abuse and hunting brings a teacher from Sydney rapidly to his knees, despairing at how quickly he has lost control while stuck in his own personal hell. If it’s on a cinema near you, go and see it, it’s a lost classic that only just been restored after being missing for decades.
I’ve also been watching the Channel 4 Live from Space series. It’s amazing to see the real life of astronauts on the International Space Station.
On Wednesday I nipped into Superdrug and picked up the three new Barry M Gelly shades. I also wanted the bright pink Grapefruit but I couldn’t remember if I already had it. So I took this picture of my collection so I’d have a permanent reminder. No I don’t have it. I need it. Review of the new shades will be up tomorrow.
I also received my first Birchbox – rather exciting! I’ll do a post with my opinions on this next week too.
What have you been up to this week? Any recommendations for me while I’m in Paris? I’m only there for two days but I’ll be packing as much in as possible.
