3 new things

Sudden and unexpected break in language review on account of my laptop running out of battery and I can’t find no way to charge it. That’s great. Will have to go to into the office later.

In the mean time, let’s do a post! Without further ado, three new things in my life:

ONE

Dayseeker. Found this little gem in one of my playlists:

Clearly a Spotify recommendation I listened to once (she said with certainty because she has last.fm and can actually check these things), put in a playlist and then forgot about.

Dayseeker is a new acquaintance for me, and clearly this is a band with skills in the album department. It’s not just this one off song that is listenable. Makes me v. v. happy!

Do give it a go, if nothing else, at least this cover of Adele’s Hello, just because metal covers of any Adele song, it is interesting. (..even if this particular cover just barely qualifies as metal.)

Although personally, if I was going to listen to one of their covers I’d pick their Thrice cover. You know when you see a track called Hurricane and you think it’s probably a 30STM cover, which isn’t bad at all, but then you click it and it turns out it Thrice? That. Feeling. It’s basically love.  

TWO

Makeup Revolution New-trals vs Neutrals eye shadow palette. 

I only picked it up because of the 3 for 2 on makeup deal. But oh. How I love it. It has all the shades I crave; there’s an orange one, range of pinks, the purples are well nice. I was a bit hesitant about the ones with the matallic/sparkly finish but they are actually really nice.

And it blends so beautifully with no fallout. Meets all my needs when travelling; almost a shame I have no plans to go anywhere. Almost.

Seriously. This one. My holy grail palette. Took me by complete surprise.

I’ve even used the godawful brush that came with it. Works well with the pale brown shade tho; used brush to shade (as opposed to draw on) my brows. So pleased!

THREE

New car insurance. This is probably not interesting to anyone, but let me tell you why I decided to get a brand new insurance; my insurance company doesn’t answer my emails. I flat out refuse to have an insurance company that doesn’t live in this century.  One time I emailed them a question and they emailed back to tell me to call them.

??!!??

Well that, and I found an insurance that was cheaper. But mostly I was furious because they don’t answer emails.

That’s a..rational behavior. Right?

Almost made the list: perfluorooctanesulfonic acid. I’ve learned something new. Or, I’m in the process of.

Apparently there is something called perfluorooctanesulfonic acid that makeup companies like to stick in all sorts of otherwise good makeup. Problem with perfluorooctanesulfonic acid is that it’s toxic and absolutely terrible for the environment; haven’t had time to really look into it yet (damn my inability to assess time needed for language review) and I’m not sure what to think. Am I going to have to make changes to my makeup? Again?
