I’ll blow you a Jelly Kiss

I'm having one of my happy periods today where I just feel happy for no particular reason at all, and nowadays I live for periods like these. I've been to the grocery store, VITA, Cubus and even had "breakfast" at Egon. Deep fried chips and onion rings with a garlic and a peanut/mango dip, a breakfast of champs. Or something. I could venture outdoors without wearing a jacket, something absolutely worth smiling about! Maybe it's because our Paris trip is approaching faster than I manage to keep track of the remaining days, or maybe it's because stepping out the apartment really does me good? Don't know. Don't care. What's important is that I'm feeling happy and content, and that I do. And having the best and most awesome friends in the world also helps a lot!

So yesterday we went to Trondheim Torg to pick up a new calendar for my planner, and I wanted to pop by VITA to look for a Jelly Kiss lipstick. When standing in the store, looking at the testers, I could not remember the name or the number of the one I wanted. Not for the life of me. So I ended up buying no. 58 "Orange Blossom" and one of their summer nail polishes in 712 "Ocean Drive", and when I arrived back home I found that the one I originally wanted was no. 57 "Coral Punch". While looking for reviews and swatches I stumbled upon no. 54 "Lilac Tulle", and just knew it had to be mine.

Today I went back to VITA, only at Solsiden, but unfortunately all they had was "Lilac Tulle" and a few other shades. I then suddenly remembered something about these being sold at both H&M and Cubus as well, so despising H&M I popped by Cubus where I found my "Coral Punch".. and three nail polishes from IsaDora's summer collection Ocean Drive: 649 "Glamour White", 683 "Dazzling Ocean" and 684 "Dazzling Aqua". I intend to be beautful for summer! I feel like I've become spoiled from all my US shopping, I actually flinched when I saw the total for one Jelly Kiss lipstick and three nail polishes. I mean, 392,- NOK or like $73 for four items? It's insane! Isn't IsaDora supposed to be a low-end brand, or at least somewhere in the middle?

54 Lilac Tulle · 57 Coral Punch · 58 Orange Blossom
649 Glamour White · 712 Ocean Drive · 683 Dazzling Ocean · 684 Dazzling Aqua

If anyone wants the Sleek MakeUP True Colours Lipstick in "Baby Doll" and/or "Barely There" (mentioned here and swatched here), please leave me a comment below. It's unused, although swatched on my arm once. Smile
