Thoughts of the week…

01) I’ve been using the Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara for a few weeks now, and I really like it. As Kimberley pointed out, the product name and the promise of full yet natural looking lashes seems a bit contradictory, but somehow it all works. I’m a convert, and may just lean towards choosing this over my Lancome Hypnose in the future.

02) Did you guys know that Sephora no longer ship to the standard postal address given to users by Hop Shop Go? Annoying. Any suggestions for alternate (good service) parcel forwarding companies would be greatly appreciated. I need my Sephora fix!

03) 30 Books You Need To Read In 2014

04) All of the good TV shows are slowly trickling back in… Parks is back, friends!

05) I just got back from a mini-holiday/weekend away with my group of close friends. It was so nice to get away, even just for one night. I’m only very mildly sunburnt (in one spot only), so I’m calling the weekend a total success.

06) 16 books to read before they hit theatres this year. How many have you read?

07) Despite hating my new local Woolworths, I discovered that they stock original source shower gels, so I purchased myself a Pink Grapefruit one, and it is DELICIOUS. Well, it smells delicious. I haven’t eaten any of it yet.

08) If you love TV/movies as much as I do, I highly recommend reading this.

09) I’m currently planning a road trip from South Australia back to Perth, and I am absolutely baffled at how people managed to book a holiday prior to having easy access to the internet. It’s hard enough finding information as it is. I am impressed with the skill my parents must have used to organise our Perth – Victoria (and back again) road trip back in the early 90s.

10) I’m reading The Marriage Plot at the moment, and I am LOVING it. Jeffrey Eugenides has cemented his place as one of my all time favourite authors.

15 Thoughts on “Thoughts of the week…

  1. I still have to read The Virgin Suicides.
    Currently reading the book thief. I’m about halfway through and bored of it (sigh).
    I’ve not used HSG for sephora before, but think it’s absolutely ridiculous they are doing everything in their power to stop people buying from them. makes no sense.

  2. Eeek! I better get reading, the only one I’d read on the list of films coming out this year is divergent!

  3. Yay for road trips! I’ve found airbnb a great resource for quick and cheap overnight stays.
    I am so excited for Veronica Mars (I’m a backer) and Divergent, also anything from the Marvel factory, and then the Hunger Games.
    I picked up the raspberry and white chocolate shower gel and it is so YUM!
    I am very annoyed regarding Sephora. Seems the only way to get it these days is to get it over there or know a local. FFS.

  4. I think people used those NRMA holiday books with all the hotels & stuff in them. :/

    Internet FTW

    Apparently Sephora aren’t shipping to any forwarding services anymore! It’s a travesty!

  6. So many books to add to my list, haha.
    Of the movie list I’ve only read 5, how about you?
    And there are so many movies/TV shows coming our way!

  7. Um…WTF? We can’t third party ship Sephora anymore?! What the hell is that about! I was saving up to make an order – and to use my shitload of points I’ve stored up! What is this madness and has anyone found a solution yet?!
