Thoughts of the week…

01) I still haven’t made this bloody soup.

02) I watched the first episode of Resurrection last weekend, and enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Will anyone else be tuning in to watch this?

03) Oooh-wee! Another new Paolo Nutini song has been released, and it’s a beauty.

04) Ben had some knee surgery this week, and isn’t doing too well. Please send some positive doggy thoughts his way during this bothersome recovery period!

05) This series of photographs showcasing a young girl’s relationship with her bulldog is the best thing I’ve seen all week.

06) This video is a close second.

07) Did else anyone order anything from the Paula’s Choice Australia closing down sale? I picked up a couple of cleansers, toners, and moisturisers because the savings were just too good to resist. It took me about an hour to get through on the phone though, which was pretty annoying.

08) I tried the new Beyonce fragrance out when I was in Priceline during the week, and I liked it. It started out as quite a heavy, wintery sort of scent but by the end of the day it was an exact dupe for the Byredo Gypsy Water perfume. Very weird.

09) I have a new YouTube obsession. This girl is gorgeous, she reminds me of a mix between Leighton Meester and Carey Mulligan and I love the way she speaks. I’m currently style-stalking her, and obsessing over her hair colour.

10) I’ve been lemming-purchasing items like crazy lately. My favourite recent purchase is the Bare Minerals eyeshadow duo in ‘The Top Shelf’, as influenced by EssieButton.

Sephora Haul

I think it may have been Dustyn who mentioned that she successfully ordered something from Sephora recently, despite their call to stop shipping things via Hop Shop Go and other parcel forwarding sites. I didn’t think too much of this until recently, when I got the primal urge to order some makeup. I decided to bite the bullet and see if I had any luck, and I did. I ordered the Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment in ‘Rose’, Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment, Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundtion in ‘Perfect Ivory’ (my holy grail foundation), and the Becca Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in ‘Amelia’. I also received two free samples (Phyto Express Conditioner for fine hair and Fresh Soy Face Cleanser), and I opted to grab my 500 point perk which was the L’Occitane Favourites kit. Have you risked placing an order from Sephora lately?
