Last Minute....


I'd wager that most of you re far better organised than we are. Christmas is on our doorstep and we have yet to finish our food shop! I have avocados to find, an enormous order collect from our fishmongers, vegetables to cart home, wine to drink and buy......and here I am messing with makeup!



I had a dream that peach and grey would make a smashing combination and I don't think my dream was wrong...

\\ War paint:



Hada-Labo BB Cream, Lunasol Lighting Eyes #04 palette, Terry Ombre Blackstar in Black Pearl, Illamasqua Blush in Lover.

The Terry Ombre is a joy to use. I blob a bit at the ends of my lids and use a brush to smudge it into a little smoke signal. I then blend in a little neutral ashen sparkle from the Lunasol palette. A doddle to do, even in a rush!



My shirt was a real bargain. I bought the above 2 mens shirts for a mere £6.00 from my local second hand shop.



I did do a little Christmas shopping. I managed to find a dandy pack of glittersome skulls to unceremoniously hang about the place. They shall keep me company as the men in my life tend to fall asleep after dinner leaving me to drink and dance and act the utter fool on my own.

Must dash now...Hiro is glaring at me! 

If I don't manage to blog tomorrow.......

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!! May it be wonderfully, magically and delightfully peculiar xx

  2. Merry Christmas to you and Hiro!

    Oh yes peach and grey do make a lovely combo on the eyes and I'm a fan of that combo myself! Love second hand shops, unfortunately we have none to very minimal here and the choices are always quite lacklustre, though if you can you do find a few gems here and there!

  6. And a Merry Christmas to you too. Know the feeling about the guys. Why do they do this. It is amazing that they fall asleep so easily. Here is to all the ladies dancing around the living room as their men sleep. Have a wonderful day tomorrow. Xxxx

  10. You had your priority set straight: makeup first, then off to the day's list, that's my motto. I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas!
