Engagement HIgh

Just a quick one!

My lovely boy popped the question in Iceland and I said yes!! We're officially engaged, isn't that wonderful? We are both over the moon and seriously occupied with engagement highs and initial wedding planning. What a perfect excuse to buy all the most beautiful, delicate, pretty make-up I can get my hands on as well as a new fragrance (to match my flowers/theme?) and dresses and shoes and hair pieces... this could be my most perfect party ever.

Oh and to let you know, I ended up buying a lipstick from the Lancome Rouge In Love range in Rouge Valentine - the perfect red for pale skin - and a huge bottle of the new Jimmy Choo Flash from the duty free. The smell will forever remind me of our magical Iceland now. On the way home I found a total bargain gift set at Dior including the brand new Iconic Overcurl Mascara and the Maximiser/Primer for lashes. Perfect.

Duty Free List

I have a list I'm working on, and just two sleeps is all that lies between me and the execution of my list. I am of course talking about my Newcastle Airport Duty Free list! It's been slowly growing for a few weeks now with growing excitement of a) finally owning these coveted items and b) actually going away on holiday. My boyfriend and I are away to Iceland on wednesday and the real excitement has just started to kick in. It's not like any other holiday we've ever been on (I've never had to take thermal socks, a heat control hoody, a waterproof and ice-climbing boots anywhere before, that's for sure.) So to ease myself into the joys of outdoor adventures I am first going to fill my make-up bag with some goodies from the duty free. High on my list is the Dior Cherie Bow range, I've got my eye on Dior Addict Lipstick in Bow for a pretty pink pout suitable for all day, the eyeshadow palettes that boast shimmering golds and pinks and a perfect pale pink nail varnish in the form of Dior Vernis in Tutu. I could also fancy Lancome Rouge In Love Lipstick in Rouge Valentine for a more vampy red lip for the 14th and of course I'm dying to try the new Jimmy Choo Flash Eau de Toilette. I'm already a massive fan of the original Jimmy Choo fragrance and would be happy to add this new, fresh scent to my collection. Clinique have FINALLY  unleashed the Chubby Stick Tint for Eyes on the UK so I will definitely be perusing those colours as well. Unfortunately, as you can see, my list is probably a little too long... I will undoubtedly spend at least half an hour with everything in my hands until I can decide what I can't live without. I wouldn't worry though, these items will slowly make their way into my make-up bag one way or another.

Flu be gone.

Apologies readers, I haven't disappeared or decided I no longer have an interest in beauty, I've had the flu. Full on, nasty, horrible flu. I haven't exactly been up to getting out of bed let alone indulge in beauty products and subsequently tell you lovely lot all about them. I'm back at work tonight and (fingers crossed) on the mend so I'm sure I'll be up and running next week. Let me know if there's anything you want to hear/know/talk about.
