I have a problem, some may call it an addiction, but I would go that far, to Ebay. I know they say there are no bargains left on Ebay, but at 7:30 in the morning, there might be a few. Its 4, YES FOUR, of my closest friends birthdays coming up, 2 of them having a 21st. So we are all chipping in for the others present, and my gosh its stressful somehow i always manage to be the idiot that pays for everything, and then no one ever gives me back the money. AND I don’t even get the credit. I should though, present buying is something I have developed a major talent for.
So anyway, I snapped up a gorgeous 1950’s silver set sapphire ring this morning for just 16 pound. How good is that?!? idiots letting things finish when there is only the dedicated alarm setting ebayer up. So that’s one of the girlies done. and the other is having a handpicked selection of vintage charms, bidding on these babies all day has driven me to tears.
I don’t even know if I should be saying this because I’m pretty sure that at least one of them reads my blog….
I’m trying to quit heavy daily make up for lent, I just want to let my freckles come out for spring and actually not feel naked without spending for ever on my face. I don’t think i could altogether quit make up because I really love it. but for 40 days and 40 nights, its bbcream or tinted moisturizer for me, no more red lip stick and not even any eyeliner. so far its been going okay, I feel a little exposed, but it isn’t as horrible as i thought it was going to be. I honestly think that I am adjusting to seeing myself sans slap, at first I was all “I’m so blotchy, my eyes are strange” but they are not.
Day 1. no make up.
This is Charly, she is my ebay buddy, and my blanket partner for film night that my boyfriend doesnt want to come too. She buys me Shakkes but steals my rings.
Day 2. No make up, I didn’t take proper picture, so this is my “me and teddy are so sad that you didn’t invite us to your workover” face.
Day 3. No makeup. I definitely feel like my skin is cleaner, my face feels softer, but I sure miss being able to hide the bags under my eyes from not sleeping enough. (Ebay’s fault)
Man, this is a long post….
this is what I wore. though I did change my tights through the day because I spilt a “Mango Melody” down one pair. oops.
This coat cost me £3 pounds from AgeUK its bloody beautiful. And my doctors bag (now laptop and book bag) was also £3 pounds from AgeUK, the same day I got it I also bought a little blue vintage suitcase that stores all my copies of Wuthering Heights. Infact I think all my outfit, minus my dress and scarf and shoes(which where £10 in last years office sale) cost 3 pounds… I have a 3 pound shopping habit.
I love this Barry M Colour, its one of the older “gelly” varnishes AND its called Prickly Pear, which I love, because Jungle Book.
I started of with a lovely caviar accent nail, but I love picking off the beads so not much later on, I had destroyed my nails, and had a quick repaint before going to the Library (on a sunday, dedication). The only polish I had at my boyfriends was this lovely soft, minty green from Claires that has now been discontinued, which is a shame because it is a great polish.
My Rabbit watch has stopped! I still wear it though, I only bought it in November, though it was only £15 pounds from fab.com, I am a little disappointed. I still love it though, people are always commenting on how sweet it is. I also wore pretty much every ring I could fine in my “stuff” draw at Dan’s. He tidied the other day and found so much of my jewelry. I think all but the huge black (M&S!!!) one are from topshop.
Blog overload much.
Oh and have any of you heard of this website? Weave Silk? its honestly one of the most beautiful things on the internet. So simple and artist and creative, I have been on it for about 2 hours….
