i only have eyes for you ♥







I started this scheduled post last night but I ended up getting distracted by food (as usual) and my plan was to go Nando's with my dad tonight but he's apparently run away somewhere. No nando's sauce or chips for me tonight :( Last night I was in the living room while Portugal and Holland were playing football..I got told to be quiet because apparently shouting 'Marry me!' at the TV when Ronaldo came on, really wasn't football suitable. Pffft.. I'm sure Ronaldo appreciates my comments - isn't he lickable?! I've literally had the laziest weekend ever - too much food has been consumed. I need to get back into my exercise habit! It's my last week at Red magazine and I really don't want to go :( I like using the cute little swipe cards and they even have a milk machine!..the things that please me. But I am looking forward to my three work placements that I have lined up - Look magazine, Nuts and Heat! :) I'm so, so, so excited to start at these magazines. I have to admit I can feel a bit nervous that I've left uni and I haven't got an internship or a job yet...but at least I can say I've got a lot of experience under my belt and I can work at my dad's estate agents in the meantime to save up some money. I've emailed a few people about some internships so hopefully something will turn up! :) So by the end of this year, I can say I've worked at More!, Red, Look, Nuts and Heat - that's a whole lot of milk machines ;)

Continuing from yesterday's post, I'm getting back to the eye shadows - yesterday was Chanel and today is MAC. I must say that these colours really are beautiful and personally I am not very experimental when it comes to eye shadows, so you know MAC must be doing something right! First of all there is the MAC Quad Eyeshadow x4 - what attracted to me to this palette was the uniqueness of the shades. The teal and lemon go perfectly together even though they clash - the yellow reminds me of Beyonce in the Telephone music video with Lady Gaga. I definitely think this palette is a must if you're feeling experimental - especially if you like to stand out from the crowd! For the duo eyeshadow, it comes from the Reel Sexy! collection and it's called the Dynamic Duo 4: Eyeshadow X2. The pink shade has a satin finish and the dark violet has a matte finish. It's perfect for creating a unique smokey eye - personally I'm not a fan of shimmery eyeshadows unless I know 100% that they don't crease or have any fall out (the Chanel eyeshadow from yesterday is the only one I like lately!) so I love how matte these shadows are. You can easily create a high fashion look with a nice twist. Now the little blue eyeshadow is called 'Nautical Navy' and like the violet shade in the Dynamic Duo collection, it is also matte. This shade would be perfect for blondes - I absoletely love blue smokey eyes on my best friend Emma. She looks fabulous as soon as blue shadow goes on her eyelids! What I like most of all about this product is that it's small and easy to chuck in your bag. You don't have to carry around a giant 15 eyeshadow pallete when you only want to use one shade. It's very practical and perfect for when you want to do touch ups. Now tomorrow I will talk about foundations and MAC lipsticks - I told you I was in a make-up mood this week ;) Have a good evening girls! I'm back to watching Criminal Minds and eating my body weight in pringles. ♥
