For us it's been birthday party for my niece and today I'm trying to get organized for the upcoming week by cleaning the house and writing tons of to-do lists.
Later today I'm going to see a house for sale.. Really excited about that! Out of my price range, but I might bid on it to see if I can get it below asking price....
Recently I have purchased a few things. I have almost had to force myself to shop since I'm still not in the mood... But we all know how effective retail therapy is, and I am in the need for some therapy!!
At tax free I went by the Mac counter and purchased three things: Mac blush in Pinch Me - which is probably the prettiest blush I have ever owned! How has this one passed my radar? It's just the perfect neutral matte pink. I prefer not having any shimmer in my blush, so I can add shimmer where I want myself (usually not on my apples, but cheek bones).
I also got a new Mac Studio Fix powder in a darker shade: NW35. - Because I figured since I've never use my other one, I will probably start now...? Logic gone... (not using this one either, but it's great to keep in your purse to do some touch-up during the day.. I guess).
Mac Select Moisture Cover concealer. Never tried this before so I thought I would give it a go. It's very moisturizing like it says and little goes a very long way. Does it cover my under eye circles? No.. I love concealers though :)
I finally got my hands on Chanel nailpolish 505, Particulére. It's soooo pretty! It's a waiting list on this in Norway! Can you believe it? This was purchased from good 'ol Ebay :)
I'm always on the look-out for a new, favorite perfume and got the latest from Elisabeth Arden (at least I think it's the latest), called Pretty! Very summery, flowery, light and nice. If it will be a new favorite, is still undecided...
I have tried to renew my wardrobe a little too. Love the fact that Fall/Autumn clothes has arrived. That means this freaking BAD Summer is OVER and
This super cute black blazer with slightly "poofy" shoulders, I got from H&M. I love how it's so versatile!!
Excuse my OOTD photos.. this is obviously not my strong side: taking pictures of myself when makeup is not in focus. Need to figure that out.. (think I've said that before...).
Leather skinny belts, like this one from Vero Moda, can make a huge difference to an otherwise boring outfit. Now that I'm a single mama I need to figure out clever ways how I can revamp my wardrobe without having to pay a fortune...
I am always drawn to things with a powdery color like this knitted loop scarf from H&M. It's so nice and yet another way to spice up a plain top or blouse.
Last, but not least - I got myself a new leather wallet! My last one I got from you-know-who, so I wanted to throw that one to you-know-where and get a new one.
Look at me being all clever making a collage!! :) hahaha Supper happy with myself!
Well, girls! That was it! I will keep you updated on my quest to revamp my ward robe and the house hunt!
Have a great week!
