In & Out - May 2012

So while I have been majorly slacking from the beauty world (broken cars, work and a summer class have taken up my time), I did manage to enjoy/not enjoy some things:

IN

- Made In Chelsea. I can't even express my love for this show... the music, the fashion, the cheesy Francis scenes (riding on a horse in Dubai scene LOL), and the cutie Jamie... LOVE! I use Google to find streams of the episodes because I'm that desperate.



- Peach lip products. Coral peach, pale peach, bright peach - I've been loving them all. Dior Addict Extreme in Saint Tropez (a Sephora exclusive shade) is particularly amazing. Goes on smoothly and has fantastic staying power. 

A similar product that I've been obsessed with ever since I received it from Revlon has been the kissable balm stain in "Charm"... I will have a post on it to come but a few of my friends on Twitter have been tweeting about those things since they are currently available in the USA (haven't spotted them in Canada yet) and they are SO nice... much better than the lip butters, in my humble opinion :) 

- live music! I went to 2 concerts on the weekend, going to another one today (M83, Lemonade, Neon Indian, Polica) and Radiohead in June. So so excited. It's nice to be back into going to shows after a few year hiatus.

- Burberry eyeshadows. HEAVEN on your eyes, I tell ya. Scooped up Midnight Brown last week after the intense enabling from my good friend Rachel and I have about 3 more on my wishlist. However, I am banning myself from buying makeup this month so I will let you know how that goes in about 3 weeks! In a weird way, bans give me satisfaction because it really makes me use up and enjoy what I already have while I make room for new exciting things.

- Beats by Dre headphones

- neon orange nail polish (!!!!! on my toes right now and it makes me so happy)

OUT

- people who constantly try to sell shiz on YouTube. I can't watch those shameless plug videos anymore, sorry. Just doesn't appeal to me. I appreciate people trying to earn a living from YouTube but sometimes it just seems desperate and not genuine, ya know? It's unfortunate.

- Rain. Clouds. Grandma Sandra complaining about the weather again...

- running out of arugula

- running out of Nutella

- having to save up for a new car *cries*

Hope your week is going better than mine!

xx

Sandra

  5. I currently got into watching MIC I had watched all 2 season and managed to be updated with season 3. I love it. I'm also annoyed with Youtubers. Each video I'm trying to watch there is 20-40sec advert. x

  6. sandra, where do you order your burberry eyeshadows from, and is the shipping to Canada outrageous?

    1. I ordered from Nordstrom and yes shipping to Canada is insane so I got it shipped to a friend's house in the US and she brought them to me when she came over.

  12. You got me addicted to made in chelsea! And now I so desperately stream it too! It's so ahmazing. On that note...have you seen Happy Endings? I don't know if you'll like it, but it's probably my favorite show at the moment. Give it a look! :)

  13. have you tried mac's shy girl? its one of my all time favourite peachy nude lipsticks:D

    ReplyDelete
  14. Agreed on Made in Chelsea (and TOWIE of course). Special attention needs to be paid to Francis' socks in that scene!
    My favourite is my impending move to the UK (no more googling for MiC) as well as MAC Cranberry eyeshadow, how come I never had it??
    Great post, always looking forward to them.

  23. Aw I love a good bit of Made in Chelsea! Totally agree with the Youtube thing too, I can't watch them. x

  24. Hey Sandra! This has nothing to with this post but since I know how much you love the Effaclar Duo (and you've converted me), I thought I'd let you know that Shoppers has a pack right now for $25 with a full size Effaclar Duo along with a sample of Anthelios SPF 60 sunscreen (which is great) and the effaclar cleanser. The Duo alone is $26 so I thought it was a great deal!

  25. Freaking love francis.. especially last night. 'What would Jesus do?' SO funny!!!!!

  26. I love Made in Chelsea though it is cheesy at times. Francis seems so "in his own world" but it's kinda cute in a nerdy way. I hate Spencer, what a pig. He thinks he can do whatever he wants with whomever and he treats his best friend like shit. Especially after he screws over Jaime by hooking up with Louise. And as much as I like Louise, it's not fair of her to be toying with both of their feelings. Love Binky, Cheska, Jaime (what a nice guy), and Ollie. And Rosie sucks too. She's just hating on Millie because she feels guilty and knows it was completely 100% her fault.
