Thoughts of the week…

I am blatantly stealing this idea from Natalie @ The Mustard Jumper and Kimberley @ Hopeful Aspirations, so be sure to head over and check out their blogs if you’re not already supercreeperfans of them like I am. Lets start with a portrait of my dog Ben from this week –

01) I am obsessed with these pants from GAP. I was so disappointed when I went back on to the site at the end of last week to order a second pair and they had sold out in my size. Woe.

02) Related to the above: I am really not doing a very good job of sticking to my budget. I will try and remedy this over the next few weeks.

03) Darren Criss.

04) As of this week, all of my favourite television shows of the season will have started up again and I am beyond excited. Give me Walking Dead and American Horror story NOW PLEASE. If you’re not down with Daryl Dixon we can’t be friends BTW.

05) Speaking of television shows, I’m really liking 666 Park Avenue at the moment. I had low expectations before watching it so I was pleasantly surprised. It has all the makings of a show I would love: supernatural themes, hot actors, Terry O’Quinn playing someone creepy and excellent wardrobe. I am pretty much obsessed with the way Jane (Rachael Taylor) is styled in the show.

06) Darren Criss as Blaine Anderson.

07) I ordered this dress to wear to a friend’s wedding in November and I’m struggling with ideas on how to style it. I have the hair/makeup down but I’m not sure what shoes/bag/accessories I should wear with it. At this stage I’m leaning towards nude peep toe wedges, a nude clutch and maybe some basic earrings. Any and all suggestions are welcome!

08) I really want these sunglasses.

09) There is officially less than a month until my birthday, just over a month until I fly over east for holidays and 71 days until Christmas! Exciting times ahead.

10) Darren Criss.

Product Review: Lanolips Lip Ointment in Sunshine

I am obsessed with this product. Obsessed. The Lanolips lip ointment is available in a variety of shades, with Sunshine being the brightest of the bunch. This is my go-to lip colour in the warmer months of the year because it’s so fresh looking and easy to wear. It looks bright orange in the tube, but when applied to the lips it comes across as more of a natural looking peachy shade (it also sheers out a lot more than the swatch in the picture above). The Lanolips ointment is on the thicker side, so if you’re not a fan of slightly heavier products on your lips you might not enjoy wearing this. One of my friends tried this when we were at brunch together one morning and she hated how it felt on her lips so if you think it might be an issue for you, I would suggest you try it out before you buy. The Lanolips lip ointment in Sunshine retails for $13.95 AUD and is available for purchase from Priceline stores or Australian online beauty retailer Adore Beauty.
