The Week #152




I get by with a little help from my Friends-Quick nostalgic moment, my cousin used to have this poster on her bedroom wall and I'm not gonna lie, I was jealous of that poster. It was massive! Anyway, this week good ol' Buzzfeed posted a list of Friends quotes guaranteed to brighten your day and as expected, it is brilliant. Be prepared to laugh out loud at your desk/phone screen and not even care about who's watching. 

An Hourglass dupe?-Say it isn't so! Max Factor bought us their Facefinity primer which is said to be a reasonable dupe for the Hourglass Veil Primer, according to Alix. Well now they've released some blushers to rival the Hourglass Ambient Lighting ones. The Creme Puff blushers are very similar in design, with an almost marbled effect and from what I've seen online, they don't come up short in the pigment stakes either. They're not out in NZ yet but a little bird told me they're not too far away. 

A Nail Polish Heaven-If you're a longtime reader you'll know I used to get my nails done by the lovely Leah Light. I've known Leah for over five years now (scary!) and she's done so well for herself in that time. Well now she's opened up a second nail salon in Parnell and it is fancy. I went along to the opening night this week with Tara and it's such an awesome space. It's so spacious and there's lots of separate rooms to get your finger and toenails did. Don't quote me on this but I think they do tanning there too. Definitely check their salons out if you're in Auckland and want fabulous nails. 

Good Reading-After perusing the library's magazine selection and not find the latest Vogues *sad face* I stumbled upon this magazine about books. It's Australian so there is a bit of a focus on Australian literature but there's also a focus on popular reads of the moment with great reviews. If you're a bit book-obsessed and you live in NZ or Aus, try to track this down. It's great.

A Spring Edit-Yes, I'm well aware it's not even the slightest bit springlike in the Southern Hemisphere right now. Makeup rules are made to be broken so if you like softer Spring makeup then go for it. I loved this makeup look that Anna created this week. How gorgeous is that Tarte palette too? *insert heart eyed cat emojis here*

*Have an awesome weekend everybody! It's another long weekend here in NZ, to honour ANZAC Day in its centennial year. I've actually had a busy ish week and I feel like I've not been home very much. This weekend I hope to sleep all day sleep in and I'm doing a spot of shopping on Sunday and no doubt watching the anticipated Bruce Jenner interview too. Have a good one x
