Thoughts of the week…

01) Song of the week is ‘Royals’ by Lorde. I love this track and I’ve had it on repeat all week.

02) I feel like I’ve been bombarding you all with music recommendations lately, but here you go have another one. City and Colour’s album ‘The Hurry And The Harm’ is amazing.

03) I’m on the hunt for a dress to wear to a friend’s wedding in Spring and Anthropologie has some beautiful options available at the moment. This is the current front runner.

04) Ben says hi!

05) The Alexander McQueen slippers I’ve had my eye on for a while went on sale this week and it took all my willpower not to buy them. They are 50% off, and it was like an arrow through the heart to have to close the browser window and walk away.

06) True Blood came back this week and to be honest I don’t really care.

07) Meanwhile, I am super super super excited about Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

08) My beloved Clarisonic seems to be broken and is currently on the way back to the manufacturer and my skin is DYING while waiting for the replacement. Because of this, I’m now 100% convinced that it’s working wonders for my skin and face in general.

09) I want to share this beautiful and inspiring piece written by Tonile earlier this week.

10) Diddy on Downton Abbey. Thanks to Natalie for this link.

Product Review: Bloom Sheer Colour Cream in Shy

Let me introduce you to my favourite go-to, no-fuss blush. This product ticks all the boxes for me: it’s a neutral pink shade that works well with my skin tone, the formula is sheer (as the name suggests), and it blends well into the skin while being easily buildable if I’m after a more dramatic, clown-faced look. As with Bloom’s other sheer colour creams, this has a faint lavender scent to it which is pleasant but I’m glad that it doesn’t transfer onto the skin. My face doesn’t need to smell like lavender but thanks anyway. The wear time on these is great, and I can wear them comfortably throughout the work day without having to worry about touching up my blush. If you’re interested, I’ve also reviewed the shade ‘Coy’ from this range, which is a gorgeous peach toned shade and I feel like it should be mentioned once again that Shy and Coy are my most-worn cream blushes. Bloom’s Sheer Colour Cream in Shy retails for $24 AUD and is available for purchase from Bloom online.
