*Lipstick- a mix of Illamasqua's "Encounter" and Kate Moss for Rimmel, shade 4*
Howdy troops, weekend been good? Today I went to the cinema (which I intend to become my Sunday ritual) but more on that story later. Oh and excuse my leopard print slippers - I took these photographs when I got home and got into them straight away!
I'm actually in love with this gilet. Never saw myself as a gilet girl, but stranger things have happened. And this is like my go-to day dress, it comes with a brown skinny belt and I adore peter pan collars - this one is white lace.
The bag was reduced from £60 to £25 (!) and I got it from Oli and Nic in Canterbury last year.
I was in two minds about buying the lippy - I've heard good things about Kate Moss for Rimmel (my sister raves about a red shade) but I've never worn very dark lipstick before and there were no testers. It is incredible creamy and smooth, smell lovely and has good coverage, but I guess I need to get used to it! For now I wore it with a red over the top and it turned into a very deep plummy red. Naaaaice.
I picked up a few things in town (of course, this is me):
I got this painting of Marilyn Monroe, Humphrey Bogart, James Dean and Elvis Presley for £10. It's such an odd bunch of people to have in one photo - they're not exactly the Rat Pack, you know? But I'm a HUGE Jimmy Dean fan, and I adore the others so it was necessary.
And guys, don't judge me on this one:
Yes. I bought a Jedward sweatshirt. It was like £4.50 and I love them so I regret nothing.
So the film I saw today was Shame, directed by Steve McQueen, starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan.
A very intense, wonderfully shot film. Though I'm not surprised it didn't get ANY Oscar nominations (I mean I love The Oscars but they're a bit of a sham really), I feel it should have been nominated for Directing, Cinematography and Lead Actor. Carey Mulligan was also FABULOUS. Has anyone seen it? Thoughts? A few stills from the film (just look at the framing - glorious!)
And finally to round off this ridiculously long post, HELLO DERR to my newest followers!! I'm a couple off 50 and I'm actually very happy to have all of you running around in my junkyard! I'm thinking of doing a giveaway when I get to 50... do people do giveaways when they get to 50? I'm just so damn excited, y'all.
