I’m having a real clothes crisis today, feeling really uninspired, like I’ve got nothing to wear…which totally isn’t true I’ve got lots of lovely clothes but today they all feel boring. Grrr you ever have days like that?
Thank you for your kind comments yesterday about my complexion/make up, I’ve only recently really started taking care of it - funny how a no spend toiletries challenge can do that for a girl. In the morning I wash with a face wash using a face brush, then moisturise. In terms of make up yesterday I use a little highlighter under my eyes to try and banish dark circles, then I used either tinted moisturiser that I’ve made myself, neutral coloured eye shadow, a slick of mascara and a smidge of cream blush. At night I clean it all off before going to bed (but like I said this is a very recent addition) – face wipes then eye make up remover, then cleanser, toner and night moisturiser. It’s lovely to wake up feeling clean in the morning instead of having crusty panda eyes. Adding this to my routine has made a massive difference, I’m noticing that I’ve got less black heads round my nose and I get a less spots. I’ve also been using Soap and Glory Fab Facial Peel once or twice a week and I think that helps too – as well as what I eat or don’t eat. I must confess I am a smoker though, so sooner or later my skin will begin to show the signs of that (I think I’m already starting to sport a few wrinkles but I can talk about them without getting overly anxious!) But anyway, thank you for your compliments xx
Am putting some more stuff on ebay today, shoes, bags and clothes. I’ll be sad to see the leopard print basque go, I’ve never worn it but I’ll still be sad to part company with it. I figure if I can sell some bits then I can have a good rummage at the jumble sale on Thursday and (maybe the Charity shops on Friday) and be spend neutral. I’m also going to order some crafty bits to start make earrings again, I really miss my creative output and it’s time to rekindle. I’ve enquired about the knitting workshop and it’s £15 for 4 hours but that includes the use of equipment (which I’m guessing is needles) and wool, and anything you make you get to take away. Being a total beginner who doesn’t know how to cast on, or come to think of it even hold the needles (I’m terrible with chop sticks so let’s hope there is a very distinct difference) I’m wondering if £15 is money’s worth. Can a complete beginner knit anything in four hours?
So anyway…here is what I’ve come up with for today:
Jersey Grey leopard print dress – Jane Norman sale about 2 years ago £9
Grey treggins – New Look sale - £7
Black cardi – Primark £10ish (yep another one)
Grey coloured pearls - £3 Asda sale last year
Black Suede Boots – New Look sale £15 couple of years old
(wondering if I should have maybe gone for black coloured treggins instead)
Hope you're all having a lovely Wednesday, nearly the weekend so it's all down hill peddling from here.
Love Queenie xx
