But until then...
Time for a Lily!
With Oaks & Derby a week away and the official 'you have the day off' from my boss, I'm getting excited about all the lily drinks I'm gonna drink.
According to the Derby website, an Oaks Lily contains vodka + cosmopolitan mix. It's delicious y'all. And pink!
Rent The Runway
I decided against wearing my lace dress from golden tote. It's pretty and all, but a wee bit too tight to walk around all day in, and I'd be pulling it down all day - that's no fun. What can I say, my hips don't lie. It would be fine for dinner or whatever, and I do love it, just not for all day. I ended up using my birthday freebie from Rent the Runway for a hot pink dress that I don't want to share yet in case it doesn't work out, but in the mean time, I wish I had parties, weddings, showers, whatever-ers to wear all of these dresses:
|one / two / three / four|
Confident - Demi Lovato. I rarely listen to the radio but this song came on the other day and I just love the beat.
Current beauty love
Last month I told you I went a bit nutty with the beauty purchases, and one of those purchases was the LA Girl BB Cream - Tati (and a bunch of other youtubers) talked about it. Way back in the day I used to use this tinted moisturiser by maybelline that they of course discontinued, I bought a bunch of it when I found that out and that was like 8 years ago and I shit you not I still have some. But I've been looking for a replacement, and I think I have found it.
What I loved about the maybelline stuff was that it covered most of my imperfections but not who I was - you could still see my flaws, they were just a little blurred, which is how I like my everyday makeup to look. It was light and went on great. I have tried so many and they are all either too heavy, not enough or too much coverage, too expensive, too whatever. I just haven't found that perfect replacement. Until now! It's a little shy from meeting the mark on coverage, I do have to wear concealer under my eyes (or that could just be because I'm not 21 anymore, right?) but other than that, I love it. You can still see 'flaws' but I at least look awake and a little smoothed out.
Oh and did I mention it is $5? It's like $7 on their website, but at walgreens and drugstore.com it is only $5. The only problem is that at walgreens and drugstore, they don't have all the shades. I bought both fair and light/medium because I wasn't sure, and I have been wearing the fair the entire time, haven't even touched the other one. Maybe it will be good for the summer.
Anyway, pictures? If you follow me on snapchat you've already seen these, sorry for the double up.
Hashtag no filter. Anyway, I am not kidding, I love this stuff.
Okay so it's not really a favourite, but it's not a non favourite either. I 'failed' my no sweets thing! But I'm not mad or sad. Yesterday, we had this big lunch at work, and there was cake. I felt like a piece. I had a piece. It was good. I did not want another. I successfully said no to the bag of chips that were next to the cake, but I felt like I could eat a piece of cake like an adult and move on. It broke my no sweets month, but 27 days is still impressive. I am more impressed by my ability to have one piece of cake and NOT turn around and eat everything in sight. Am I ready to do that whole 'moderation' thing? Absolutely not, unfortunately. I still do not have the willpower or discipline to have a bag of chips at home and not eat the entire thing. But this shows that I will get there, so high fives.
and with that, I say good friday y'all and have a good weekend.
