The Week #67

The Week in Instagrams @nanawintour: *Wisdom from Anna Wintour, I went Mac shopping! More about that on Monday.. *This gorgeous birthday card from Maria arrived in the post *Tuesday's beauty, fragrance & jewelry bits *My scene yesterday *The funsized beauty bumf.

Must-Watch of the Week: This week seems to have been all about the hauls in Vlogville and being the nosy 'what did you buy' type, naturally I am okay with that. Shannon of Shaaanxo vlogged her haul(s) of Mac and Sephora products. There was lots of audible gasping and wishlist comparing happening during the viewing of this video. This is also a great one to watch if you're from New Zealand as Shannon talks about two shipping services she used which basically mean we can buy Mac and other beauty products for less. Beauty addicts: you must watch this!

Product of the Week: I have naturally thick, sometimes frizzy hair which tends to have a mind of its own, well not any more. I've been using the Clairol Anti-Frizz Serum* and am really noticing a difference to my hair. You can apply this to wet or dry hair and it makes your hair sit flatter. It almost looks as if my hair has been straightened on non-GHD days, not that I have particularly curly hair. As it's a serum it doesn't leave your hair crispy like some finishing sprays can do. I'm adding this to the repurchase list as we speak..

Must-Read of the Week: Earlier in the week I finished a book about Isabella Blow and her fabulous life in the fashion industry. This is the woman who introduced the world to Alexander McQueen, Sophie Dahl and Philip Treacy to name a few. Rather than gush about why Isabella was awesome I'll let this BuzzFeed article do the rest of the talking.

Added to the Wishlist: After watching Shannon's video a pen and paper were grabbed to start making a Sephora wishlist. Top of that list is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light. These powders are for those of you who want something that will set your makeup without making your complexion look chalky or your base cakey. They basically help achieve a 'your skin, but better' finish and with my Mac powder on its last legs this would be an ideal replacement.

*PR Sample


  1. I'll definitely have to watch Shannon's video and save some money! Sounds like a great week x


    1. You shall! YouShop is a New Zealand post service but I'm sure AusPost will have something similar you can use. x

  2. Last time I tried shopping at Sephora they wouldn't accept my NZ credit card number. That said, I'm counting down the months until I set foot in Sephora at South Coast Plaza again... will be a case of BUY ALL THE THINGS! May need to investigate excess baggage.

    1. If you watch Shannon's video she tells you how you can buy things from Sephora. Hope that helps!
