The Sweetest Sunglasses!

Bare Escentuals bareMinerals GeniusI'm having wonderful days nowadays. Weather is nice with an excellent forecast for the next five days. I'm not feeling as down health-wise as I recently did. Mr. Postman has suddenly remembered where I live, and today he left me a text and a note to come pick up two packages at the post office. One of them contained my new Juicy Couture sunglasses, and the other one a brush set from Bare Escentuals. I'm not a big fan of Bare Escentuals' brushes, I think their bristles are a bit too stiff, but ever since I bought the Bare Escentuals Tutorials: Eye Liner set back in December, I've been wanting more of these cool magnetic "Genius" brushes.

This set contains the Multi-Tasking Face Brush, Contour Blush Brush, Long Tapered Shadow Brush, Tapered Blending Shadow Brush, Slanted Liner Brush, a magnetic double-ended brush handled and a "Stow & Go" case. Very handy, and I love how they've added a slanted liner brush, which is the best brush to line your eyes with in my opinion.

On to my new sunglasses, a pair of Juicy Couture Sweetest. I kinda feel like Juicy Couture is a brand targeting younger girls with their sugary sweet products, but I happen to like this brand nonetheless. I spent quite a lot of time deciding on which model I should buy, considering the length of the temples and the size of the glasses, so when they arrived today I was extremely anxious to try them out, and oh my.. I absolutely love them! Despite of being gradient brown they're nice and dark, just as I was hoping. By far the best purchase I've done in a long time, and I think that says a lot!

Now I'm ready for the approaching summer, and according to the weather forecast it's going to be wonderful temperatures starting with 17'C on Saturday! I'm hoping this heat wave will last for a while so way we can experience a little summer at home before leaving for summer in Paris when July comes.

Easter Shopping

Juicy Couture SweetestSomehow I imagined there would be no shopping while in the middle of nowhere, also known as "home", but apparently there's no payday without at least a little shopping.. not even now that I've decided to start saving up money for Paris! I'm so weak I'm actually a bit ashamed of myself. I like eBay, and I've just purchased a pair of sunglasses which is something I actually need, so my conscience is.. pretty much clean. Not so long ago I watched a video by Macbarbie07, and I liked her sunglasses so much that I went on a mission to find out which model it was she was wearing. Unfortunately the temples of her model "Bronson" were too long for my tiny head.. I mean, I currently own a pair of Ray-Ban Junior sunglasses! I then changed my mind and started lemming a pair of "Classic" instead, but when the color I preferred turned out to be discontinued, I ended up with a pair of "Sweetest" sunglasses. I don't know when they'll arrive, I'm just hoping they won't be too large for my small face, making me look like some kind of insect. I can't stand that hideous trend. If they look amazing on me, I'll post a picture when I get them, promise.

Mr. Postman stopped by with two packages for me yesterday. One contained a 184 Duo Fibre Fan brush from M·A·C, and the second package held two Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blushes in "Tipsy" (coral) and "Natural Beauty" (muted strawberry red), two gorgeous blushes I managed to get my hands on thanks to Line! I could have ordered them from Sephora via MyUS, but this way I got them straight in my mailbox - much less hassle, and much quicker. For swatches of the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes, take a look here and here.

Deborah Lippmann Nail LaquersFieran also offered to buy me a few nail polishes from Deborah Lippmann, a brand I haven't tried before. Even though I certainly have enough nail polishes, I decided take her up on the offer and get three bottles: two glitters and one creme. The first one was "I Know What Boys Like", which is the periwinkle blue polish from the new summer collection. Who doesn't love periwinkle? Swatches to be found at Ommorphia Beauty Bar. The second one was "Lady Sings the Blues" (silver sparkled blue), a polish that immediately caught my attention after seeing swatches by Scrangie - and the third one was "Ruby Red Pumps" (Dorothy's shimmering ruby), a mesmerizing polish if I should judge by the swatches at Laquerized.

Now I'm going MIA for the weekend. Smile
Have a good one, people!
