The Week #110

The Week in Instagrams @nanawintour: *I took a little trip to Mag Nation when I was in Ponsonby the other day. They had the new Spaces book released by Frankie. Long story short I need it. *It was so cool seeing our subediting and design work that we did for Uni in print this week. *Kit Kat's, the reward for making it through the day tantrum free. *My Top 5 Real Techniques Brushes. *At the Maybelline Masterclass with Kelly Thompson on Wednesday. It was so fun! Keep an eye out for those Colour Elixirs and the Colour Tattoo Pigments. They're gorgeous. *My favourite Winter eye makeup at the moment-L'Oreal Bronzed Taupe and Illamasqua's Ore Pigment make one gorgeous duo.

Must-Watch of the Week: Esteé of Essie Button filmed a collab video with BooksAndQuills this week which was all about books. Now I don't know about you but I love reading and am always keeping an eye, or ear out for new recommendations. If you're in a similar boat then you'll enjoy this video and Sanne's blogs. She describes books like John Green's perfectly and is so interesting to watch+listen to.

Product of the Week: Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede Cologne-You've probably seen this hiding in the back of some of my photos recently. Well, I am obsessed with it. Seriously, I'm staging a self-intervention so I don't wear it 24/7. That's how much I love it! Jo Malone describe this as "Flirtatious with the juicy bite of red apple and the opulence of jasmine, rose and gillyflower.  Mingling with the sensuality of soft, blush suede.  Luxurious and seductive." This cologne reminds me of a grown up, more sophisticated version of Daisy Eau So Fresh so if you like that then you're bound to love this.

Must-Read of the Week: Alix's Gluten and Dairy Free Pancakes. Whenever I go on semester-break I'm always looking for new recipes to try and these pancakes sound divine. They're super healthy and so easy to make. I'll definitely be giving these a go.

Added to the Wishlist: Nothing this week! I've not been near enough shops or reading enough beauty blogs clearly. 

*Have the best weekend guys. This week's been so busy so I'm hoping the weekend is a bit more chilled. I'm off to Hannah's tomorrow for another sleepover which should be exciting but other than that I am hoping for sleep ins and perhaps a baking sesh or two! 

PS-Thank you so much to everyone who commented, tweeted and emailed me about my anxiety post. I was really not expecting it to get such a positive response but knowing that it has helped people makes me so happy. That sounds really naff I know but it's true x.


  1. Hey lovely! Not sure if I've ever mentioned how much I love your weekly roundup-kinda posts before - they're awesome! <3

    I really want to get a whiff of that Jo Malone perfume, everyone keeps raving about it - so I feel like I need it in my life. How much does it retail for??

    Also just letting you know that I nominated you for the "Very Inspiring Blogger Award" which is just a fun little way of sharing the love. oxo

    1. Hey Christel. Aww thank you! That's so lovely of you to say. You need to go try it out when you're next in the Britomart area! Jo Malone's 30ml fragrances are $110 and then the 100ml (I think that's the biggest size) are $250.

      Naww thanks for the nomination!! xx
