I've been in my new job for about 6 months now. The work experience I'm getting here is fantastic but my commute is getting me more than down. So I'm looking into options...either I move nearer to there or I find a job nearer to me. Either way, I know something's gotta change..I spent 4 hours in the car on Tuesday attempting to get to work. The combination of a 38 mile journey and 'adverse weather conditions' just isn't a good idea!
One nice thing about work is the ability to dress smartly...I'm loving my black wool A-line skirt with some silk blouses and a thin belt to break the line up :) I also have invested in a couple of gorgeous dresses (one from Coast and one from Monsoon - both in the SALE) which will double up as work dresses and evening outfits :)
I'm also seeking a pair of grey platforms...tried a pair on in New Look but they're ridiculously high so I would never been able to walk around in them! Any suggestions?
So the most important item on the agenda...!
I had a bit of a skin dilemma a couple of months ago and even though I had steered clear of any moisture in foundation, I found that my mattifying ones just too drying and so I used this little baby constantly for a couple of weeks :)
It's a great little foundation to use when the weather gets this cold and your skin needs a little burst of moisture throughout the day. The only complaint I have is that it's not as long-lasting as say the Dior Forever foundation.
Talking of Dior...I'm waiting on the Nude Sculpting Powder and Concealer to come out mid-January. It looks amazing and I hope that it'll compliment the Nude Foundation that I have already. Realistically I'm gonna have to wait until payday as I've just surveyed my bank balance!!!
Lip-wise I'm loving the YSL Rouge Volupte in 001 and 002...a true nude and a nudey-pink. It makes all my other lip-glosses possible. I'm also loving MAC Plushglass...they smell amazing and there are some lovely nude colours to go on top.
I hope that's sufficiently updated you guys. I miss blogging and I will try and update more often this year! Lots of love...J xx
PS What were your finds of 2009?? xx
