Some recents finds as well as products I was gifted!
I’m currently in the couch with the pugs with a cold, and probably fever, but laying down watching Scream on Netflix was just making me sleepy, so I got up (well, not I’m sitting down) to take some photos and write here on my blog.
I really wanted to bake today, but I’m out of oven paper, so let’s take a look at these pretty things instead!
The first thing I need to share is that I’ve found gummy candy that are not made with gelatine, so they are vegetarian and vegan. They taste so so good, and although I don’t eat too many candy – I’m more of a cake/chocolate person – since I’ve gone vegetarian each time I would see candy I would crave them a bit. I can still have hard candy, but every once in a while a girl needs her gummy candy. So I’m happy I found these, but if you know about others that are available in the UK, do let me know!
To stay in the “sweet” theme, my friend Zoe came up with a new beauty line, and she gifted me some products from it. I’m glad she picked these for me, as they smell so delicious and I absolutely love taking a good bath. Also, adorable packaging, as usual!
When I got back from Scotland, I also received another package from Tarte. Tarte must love me, which is good because I love Tarte.
This time they released their “naughty nude” products, including lip tubes, blushes and highlights. I just searched on their website to see if there was a section just for these but couldn’t find one, so either this was another box put together for bloggers, or I’m just too sick to see it. Either way, I’m pretty sure that you will be able to find each of these products on the website, in case you are interested.
The four lipsticks (exposed, whisper, undressed, bare) are all gorgeous, I’ve always like nudes as well as darker brown shades, so I will get lots of use out of these.
Out of all the blushed and highlighters I was sent, these two, “exposed highlight” and “risqué blush”, are my favourites. They both have a peachy/warm/gold undertone which looks really nice with my complexion, so I can’t wait to try them out!
Now onto books, the first one is Pale & Interesting. I found out about these two designers because I came across some of the houses they own and renewed. They looked so gorgeous I had to google who they were, and it turns out they made some coffee table books about interior design.
Because this style is exactly what I love, I felt like buying this could provide me with some inspiration for my own place. I’m a big fan of having everything white, especially wood, but contrast it with some metal and dainty pieces here and there.
Whilst waiting at the airport, I had nothing to do: I had lots of spare time so I asked my dad to go take a look at some books. I stayed in the shop for about 30 minutes, not even exaggerating, because I couldn’t find a single book that I was interested in.
I was about to give up, when I noticed this cover.
I picked it up, and not really knowing what to expect, I bought it.
Now, I want to keep it mysterious for you, because I was so surprised by it, but I definitely recommend you picking it up if you want a different kind of read. I’m only half way through but from the very first chapter I turned to my parents and told them how interesting this was!
And finally, I wanted to include this album in here, by Cinders. They approached me after I featured their song here on my blog, thanked me and kindly send over their newly released album. I’m beyond excited to listen to this while driving, they are such a talented band!
And that’s all I wanted to talk about today. I’m now going to continue napping on the couch with the pugs. Luckily it’s a cloudy day so I’m not too bothered by having to spend the day inside.
Hope you are all doing well, I’m planning to make another blog post tomorrow as well!
