Essays, Sunday Girls and Surprises
As you may or may not have noticed, my posts have slowed down a bit in the last week. It’s midterms here in the grand ole’ state of undergraduate studies and I am taking five courses, four of which are marked “Writing Intensive.” What that means, dear readers, is that I’ve been doing 4 Things this week: Sleeping, Eating, Writing and…well…BATHROOM stuff. I haven’t even seen the BF in two weeks x__x
I’m about two papers away from finishing everything up, but was so burnt out on Tuesday that I was prettty sure I was going to go comatose. Then a package arrived from a faraway land (Scotland.) And all was right with the world.
A little while ago, I was lucky to win The Sunday Girl’s facebook giveaway. The original prize met an unfortunate fate involving the back of a car and some sun (doesn’t that suond absolutely Mob-ish?) But Adrienne is so amazing that she made up a whole new prize just for me. AND she threw in some extras, because she’s a doll like that.
I want to give all the makeup their individual reviews, so you’ll have to survive on sneak peaks for now!
Sleek “Oh So Special” Palette
YESSSSSSSSSSSSS. Lemming desires? Satisfied. Isn’t it a beaut?
Sleek Blush in Suede
HG Status, instantly. It’s my new go-to natural flush blush. I love it SO HARD.
Rimmel London – Glam’Eyes Eyeshadow in 100 Glam Ice
Okay. See the name of the line? Glam’Eyes? See the name of the color? Glam Ice? Haaaaaa~
Seriously though, can’t wait to review this. It’s my first Rimmel shadow and it’s SO SO SO beautiful.
Makeup Academy Lipstick in Shade 9
The Beauty Blogging community is such a joy. Sometimes there are products you would pass over if you hadn’t seen them in a review. This lipstick is definitely one I would have walked past in the store but I have to admit, I LOVE wearing it. It’s so perfect for fall. You’ll have to wait for the review to see it on but I am so glad I got it!
Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast Lip Balm
The ravages of the changing seasons have been..well…ravaging my lips. Adrienne reviewed this balm mid-August and i’m thrilled to have received it. It’s permanently in my bag and I actually prefer it to my EOS lip balm egg. It’s delish!
Agent Provocateur Perfume Sample of L’Agent
This may or may not, most certainty probably is but oh well, be TMI. But I used to have a boyfriend who would only let me wear AP undies. It’s beautiful, almost too beautiful to wear really but what really stuck in my mind were their lovely scents. L’Agent is an old favorite that i’d nearly forgotten! It’s a unique scent, which currently escapes description but as I’ve now purchased a bottle i’ll do a review soon and attempt anyway!
Sephora Smoothing Primer Sample
I’m eternally in search of my dream primer and can’t wait to give this a go!
Frosties – “Kola Flavour Hard Candy With A Chewy Center”
I’m actually enjoying one of these delicious babies right now. They remind me of Ramune candy, as they have a slight fizz on my tongue. But they’re much sweeter and that softer center lasts forever.
Cadbury Daily Milk Chocolate Bar
“…What’s that delicious chocolate? Y..you want me to EAT you immediately? Oh well…if you insist.”
So huge shout-out and thanks to Adrienne of The Sunday Girl. These little babies saw me through some killer exams. Hopefully my regular posting schedule will resume by the end of the week!
