Thoughts of the week…

01) I’m in the market for some skinny jeans that hit just at the ankle. I’m the perfect height for regular length jeans and never have to get them hemmed but all of my jeans are slightly too long to wear comfortably with ankle boots without too much additional fabric bulk at the ankle.

02) Thanks to Clare for suggesting this song to me in the comments of a previous TOTW post. I’ve been listening to it non-stop all week. DARREN CRISS Y’ALL.

03) I cut all of my hair off.

04) I’m obsessed with wine coloured lipstick at the moment. I wore Chanel’s Rivoli for the first time last weekend, and have NARS Palais Royale on it’s way to me now.

05) I managed to snag front row tickets to a little thing called the Red Tour.

06) I really need to start cutting back on the amount of coffee that I drink. I have two cups of coffee a day, but the coffee I order has 3 shots in it, so…

07) I posted the link to this etsy store last week and I just couldn’t resist picking up this little beauty for myself.


09) I was lucky enough to receive a Clarisonic Mia for review earlier this week and I am obsessed with it. It takes a while to get used to but as someone who is obsessed with exfoliation, this is pretty much skin care perfection.

Product Review: Covergirl + Olay Pressed Powder in Light

Earlier in the year I made the change from using a loose powder to touch up my makeup throughout the day to using a this Covergirl + Olay Pressed Powder instead. Pressed powder is clearly the superior option when you take into consideration ease of use and portability and I’m really not sure why it took me so long to figure this out. This particular powder works well, it isn’t chalky and it blends nicely into my skin without leaving a dusty residue. I often have a hard time colour matching face powder, but this shade works and my fellow pale faced girls shouldn’t be afraid to try it out. The only down side to this product is the fact that the powder seems to have a very fine element of shimmer to it and I really wish cosmetic brands would stop trying to make glitterface happen. I know that this is in place to help give a luminous effect to the skin, but it never seems to work that way for me. The Covergirl + Olay Pressed Powder retails for $16.95 AUD and is available for purchase from Priceline, Big W, Target, and selected pharmacies throughout Australia.
