NYX minx honeymoon sandstorm

This week’s highlights

  1. Suddenly fell in love with shorts. JFC. Dug some out of the depths of my closet, barely worn, ever, (throw something away just because I haven’t been wearing it? don’t think so) loved, ordered more from ASOS – completely justified, had a total of 3 pairs; that won’t last me long. Ordered another 3 pairs. Obviously to be worn with black tights, platforms, and a black top of some sort. This styling (below) is an abomination. 1468092623256
  2. The purple & red eye shadow love continues. It’s a reason to get up in the morning. Especially enjoy doing a minimalist version of sunset shadow, i.e., take your NYX Full Throttle Eye Shadow Palette, take the orange shade, put it in your crease, and the red one all over your lid, blend together et voilá. Another favorite: pairing a gold-ish shade with the H&M Sahara Dawn. (Wow, this filter makes the Sahara Dawn come off black. It’s really not, it’s red I swear, the NYX palette comes out looking true to life tho.)NYX sahara dawn
  3. Highlighter on cupid’s bow. I just really like it. For now. Come next week I’ll have another obsession. Using the middle shade in the Makeup Revolution Radiance palette, which I still love:makeup revolution radiance
  4. Dream on, Dreamer (band). Was starting to despair, listening to the same songs over and over again. Found this band via recommendation from Last.fm. Last.fm does know me better than Spotify. So that’s giving my usual suspects some room to breathe.
  5. Tofu-banana-peanut butter-pudding. Take half a package of silken tofu, 1 banana, 1 heaped table spoon of peanut butter, mix, put in a nice little bowl or cup, top with lots and lots of cinnamon – best meal ever. Technically, it’s a dessert, but I’ll have it for breakfast or dinner. It makes my brain happy.1468094971792
  6. Finally got my ASOS order. Only took them 2 weeks. More dresses for me! And cleaned out closet to make room. In particular looking forward to this red one:red dress asosI’ve been longing for a red dress for a while now. Will pair with black tights, obviously.
  7. Been doing research for trip to the UK later this summer (so that’s three visits to the UK this year, that’s..reasonable?). Not supposed to, but I can’t help myself. Studying the maps and the restaurant selection, planning the shopping.
  8. The NYX liquid lipstick in Sandstorm – said before and I’ll say it again – it’s perfect. Only slight difference in shade compared to Honeymoon and Minx. Have to stop buying brown/beige/neutral lip colors from NYX, I can’t possibly use any more.NYX minx honeymoon sandstorm
  9. The app Eatthismuch. The flexibility is amazing! You tell it how much you want to eat, how many meals a day, if you’re on a particular diet, e.g. if you’re on a vegan diet or if you have food allergies (among other things), and it tells me what to eat. And it actually gives good suggestions. And if you don’t like a suggestion, just refresh and you get another one. This is excellent if you want some new ideas as to what to eat. Even if I have made a conscious effort to make it suggest meals including brussel sprouts as per usual – which is another thing, if there is something you really like, you can tell the app and it will suggest meals including that particular thing, or if you want it to suggest a particular meal.
  10. Sis got us ticket to see The Amity Affliction. I was going to not go, but sis threatened to go by herself if I wasn’t coming. That’s not an option. I’ll be working over Christmas then as I have no vacation left, but whatever. Not a single doubt in my mind it’ll be worth it. I expect to get to hear this live:
    By this I mean the line Let the ocean take me. That alone is worth the ticket price.
