The Week #101

The Week in Instagrams @nanawintour: *Saving Mr Banks watching. Note the mandatory tissues. *The Beauty Scenario Tag. *A Back 2 Mac lipstick in the shade Syrup. *A Fall pinboard update. *Bluebells Cakery deliciousness on Sunday with Mandy. *Looking at the Warm palette in Mac the other day. The colours in this palette are so pretty!

Must-Watch of the Week: If you saw my Beauty Scenario Tag post you may have noticed I tagged Tara and Ellen from Shop Style Conquer. They filmed this video in response and you should go watch it, just because. It's very entertaining. Oh and go hit the subscribe button while you're there. I know they'd appreciate it.

Product(s) of the Week: NYX Blush in Taupe-If your complexion errs more on the paler side of things then you'll like this blush from NYX. I don't use it as a blush as such, but it is great for subtly sculpting your face, adding shadows in the right places, creating the illusion of cheekbones-whatever you want to call it. It's super cheap too which gets it bonus points. Another purse-friendly find this week is the Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Ros√©. Firstly it smells delicious, like cake frosting. Secondly, these are so moisturising. This new one doesn't seem to have as thick a texture as some of the other lip butters from Nivea which I don't mind. Throw one in your trolley when you're supermarket shopping. 

Must-Read of the Week: If you're after something photo-heavy and inspiring this week then you need to look at The Coveteur's feature with Lisa Eldridge. Lisa is a beauty blogger, vlogger and makeup artist to many a girl's muse. Man Repeller have also been delivering the goods this week (as always). I liked this post Leandra did about the ten rules of fiction writing and also Amelia's piece on the perfect Instagram account

Added to the Wishlist: I might've mentioned last week but Nars are really on top of their release game at the moment. They've brought out a new angled Contour Brush which isn't anything new really, but it's one brush missing from my collection. It's said to make contouring easy so for clutzes like myself this sounds like quite the nifty tool.

*Have a fantastic long weekend everyone! It's finally mid-semester break which means more sleeping+less coffee, Gilmore Girls, seeing my friends and other exciting things. I'm off to Hannah's for a girly sleepover tonight which'll be exciting-you'll no doubt see some tweets and Instagrams about that. Oh-and Happy Easter! Have plenty of chocolate. Treat yo'self. 


  1. Happy Easter Sophie! I am so relieved that its mid-semester break, haha :) Love your pinboard <3
