Purple on purple

Here’s what I wore Wednesday October 21. I told you that you would be seeing a lot more of these purple corduroy trousers. And this is not the last time I’ll be styling them with more purple.

Black Friday collective beauty haul

This is going to be my last Black Friday haul, and it’s a small collective beauty haul.

I’ve been wanting to try out the Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil highlighter for so long, and I thought getting the Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb Baby – Travel Set would be a great way to do so. It comes with a mini version of the Diamond Bomb highlighter in the shade How Many Carats?! and a mini Gloss Bomb in the shade Fu$$y, which is a shade I didn’t already own. I wore the highlighter for the first time yesterday, and it sure is blinding and also quite glittery. I might have applied a little too much, but I did like the glass like finish of it, and it didn’t ruin the make-up underneath, eventhough it has a jelly-like texture.

I had seen ads about the L’Oréal Air Volume Mega Mascara and was intrigued. I won’t say anymore about it now, because a first impressions post on it will be coming up.

You have probably noticed how much I love coloured eyeliner pencils for my waterline, and NYX usually doesn’t disappoint when it comes to this category of make-up. These are the Epic Wear Liner Sticks, and I picked up the shades (from top to bottom) Emerald Cut, Cosmic Yellow, Pink Spirit, Frosted Lilac, and Periwinkle Pop.

The last product in the haul is not make-up, but a skincare product. I’ve been using the The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash for several months now, and I really like it, so I thought I would give Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask a go. It’s a gel type formula that you apply to your face before you go to bed, leave it on overnight, and wash it off the next morning. I’ve only used it a few times so far, but I really should use it more often to give it a fair shot.

Prefer this version

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I wore a similar make-up look in December which was actually inspired by this look that I wore in October. I think I prefer this October version.

Mood booster

Here’s what I wore Tuesday October 20. This big red skirt is an instant mood booster. It’s just such a fun piece to style and wear.

Khaki green lips

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I had a lot of fun creating a make-up look to match my jumper. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear this awesome khaki green lipstick again.

Collective Black Friday haul: clothes, shoes, and accessories

It’s time for another Black Friday haul. These are the clothes, shoes, and accessories I puchased from various places on Black Friday.

The only clothes I bought was this Coca Cola sweatsuit from H&M, and I’m obsessed! I was never into wearing joggers, not even at home on the weekends, but that changed towards the end of 2020.

I only purchased one pair of shoes around Black Friday as well, and it was these purple boots from Asos that I’d had in my saved items for such a long time. You know how obsessed I am with everything purple, so I thought it was the time to get these.

And now on the accessories. I bought these sunglasses from Asos too, and I just loved the shape and the brown and beige colours. I can’t wait to wear these in a few months.

I also bought another big hair clip (in purple of course) to add to my rather extensive hair accessories collection. This one is from Asos as well.

How adorable is the Mickey Mouse watch! It’s from H&M, and I obviously had to have it.

A little while back I puchased a pair of golden T-Rex earrings from Topshop, and when I found the matching bracelet on Asos’ website, I added it to my cart immediately. I’m really into charm bracelets at the moment.

And speaking of charm bracelets, Trollbeads had such a great Black Friday sale, so I decided to buy the My Sweet Stories bracelet that came with the My Sweet Stories lock, the My Sweet Stories heart (a silver bead), and the My Sweet Stories glass bead (the two on the far right). I also puchased two more glass beads (Zebra and Red/Purple Armadillo) and two more silver beads (Crystal Heart and Singing in the Snow). I know that I’ll get so much wear out of this bracelet.

Fun purple and green

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I continued the purple and green colour scheme in my make-up look, and it turned out to be such a fun look.
