Another exhausting week down! I'm struggling to juggle everything at the moment but hopefully that will improve after I hand in my thesis - after presenting on it on Friday, I'm on the home stretch now! Again, I can't say I've been doing anything uber-thrilling this week but I'm pretty satisfied with how everything is going and excited to get properly back into blogging in a few weeks. It'll never be the biggest part of my life but, I miss being able to devote more time to it all the same!
1. Shorter Hair... The busier I am, the more thankful I am that I got a good few inches chopped off my mop a few weeks ago now. For years I was obsessed with keeping my hair as long as possible, so this was a bit of a change, but I just love it. I can dry my hair in ten minutes and it looks presentable without getting the straighteners out. This has never happened before! I wasn't sure if I'd keep it this length for long (my hair grows like a weed), but now I know I'll definitely be heading back in a couple of weeks for another trim!
2. Hourglass Intrigue... I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with Hourglass as a brand, and I'm definitely not the only one. This was confirmed when they tweeted this picture and myself, Sinéad and Sarah immediately agreed that, as long as it's not just a re-issue of the Ambient Lighting Palette, we'd probably order it blind. I'm thinking it might be some kind of blush or contour palette?!
3. Cocoa Mirage... This week I finally bit the bullet and got my hands on the gorgeous Cocoa Mirage palette by Tom Ford. This is way out of my price range and I definitely do not think it is worth €70 but, I had a voucher so it was kind of a bit of a no-brainer. I adore warm brown shades so have really enjoyed playing with this so far and will be sure to review it in full soon. If you have a voucher to spend, this is definitely a treat to consider!
I had absolutely nothing planned for my day yesterday morning when I won brunch at San Lorenzo's on Twitter. It was a welcome surprise and my boyfriend and I really enjoyed it - I'll be back to try their dinner menu!
5. Nostalgia c/o ChelseaWears...
This video is hilarious. I've been watching Chelsea for a good year or so but had never seen this one before I clicked on it this week. If you grew up in the nineties and early noughties, you will definitely relate!
