I should really do this more often because I find myself falling in love with a host of little things every week!
First up is the song Video Games by Lana Del Rey. What a song. Its so dreamy and it sweeps me away to another era. And Lana Del Ray? How GORGEOUS is she! She's a breath of fresh air.
Im in his favourite sun dress, watching me get undressed, take that body down-town. I say ''you the bestest'', lean in for a big kiss, put his favourite perfume on. Go play a video game. It's you, it's you, it's all for you. Heaven is place on earth with you. Tell me all the things you wanna do......
Laura Mercier Eyelash Curler. This is actually on loan from my friend. I told her I'd give it back. I lied. She thinks she's getting it back. She's wrong. This little dinky contraption works a treat on my eyelashes. For someone who never believed in eyelash curlers, Im sold! Its easy to use and the rubber rim gives my lashes a fabulous curl and lift that lasts. It comes in its own little pouch and for 15 euro.....my friend can buy another one!
Anonymous. I actually saw this about two weeks ago and have thought about it ever since. It was an amazing film! If you love period drama, you'll definitely love this. Set in Tudor England, its about Shakespeare being a fraud. It gives a revealing insight into Queen Elizabeth I's past and how the English royal blood line could have been so different. The setting of the film and the costumes are perfection in my opinion and the story alone will have you questioning Shakespeare's entire work and life! And I never thought I write this but...Rhys Ifans was quite ride-ish in this....in a kind of, sexy- for-a-600 year old-Tudor-guy way, and his performance was fantastic! Looking at him in a whole new light now!
The Shoe Rooms in Brown Thomas. My God. I was in there over the weekend and had to hold back the tears of complete and utter joy of being surrounded by the most beautiful shoes. And the Louboutin room? PLEASE! I'd happily spend hours in there trying on every single shoe. I tried on a gorgeous pair of Jimmy Choo knee length boots....brown suede......the most perfect fit......light as a feather.......695 EUROS! A girl can drool!
No7 Lash Adapt Mascara. I first read about this on BeckyDazzler's Blog a couple of weeks back and she raved about it big time so of COURSE one had to purchase! Yet ANOTHER mascara to add to my stash. This is an old school mascara, nothing fancy arse here. A plain old brush and bobs your uncle. It gives incredible volume, has amazing staying power, you can add coat upon coat til' the cows come home and best of all, it leaves lashes feeling soft, not clumpy or hard. I think mascara's these days are trying to hard. Make-up companies need to take it easy and tone down on the, "we'll give you lashes sooooo long and thick they'll gouge someone's eye out" kinda lark. Sometimes simple just works!
