Your Weekend Read

Hello my lovely readers,
I do apologise for the fact that I have not kept up my Friday’s Weekend Read…oops :/. When I get back from Bali next week (yes I am flying out to Bali Friday night!!) I will make an effort to get back into routine. For this week I’m going to try out a little addition to the Weekend Read, I am going to include all the photos I’ve instagrammed this week…it will be like a visual summary of my week :) If you like this idea please let me know in the comments!!

I love this makeup combo! Using Makeup Geek Chickadee in the crease then darkened with MUG Cocoa Bear..I used a pale yellow on the lid, from my 88 Colour Palette by Coastal Scents and used MUG Shimma Shimma in the inner corners as a highlight…lined my water line with Maybelline Eyestudio waterproof gel liner in black, applied Morgan Annie mascara in black and bam, I look good! :P

About to walk to the hospital to visit my friend. I can’t express how much I love these shoes!! I have wanted a boots like these since…forever!…I am so glad I took the plunge and paid the $100 for them. I wear them ALL the time hehe, they are so comfy and go with a lot of my clothes <3 Plus I feel great when I wear them because I know that no one else has a pair in Perth…well not that I’ve as of yet. I’ll be pretty disappointed if I come across someone wearing them one day haha.

Got my hair cut (even shorter) today :D I’ve wanted to try out a micro fringe ever since I watched The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo. I’m liking it so far! Btw how good are the millennium series!! I read the last one Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest in one sitting, all 741 pages! I didn’t finish it ’til 2.30am hehe. If you haven’t read them I recommend you go out and get yourself a copy. I can’t wait for the next movie to be made in English. Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara are perfect for the roles <3

Going through my old USBs tonight and I found a folder of pics from my 19th birthday…this is what I looked like (in 2009) three years ago!! This was when I first started to pursue makeup with a passion, thanks to Belinda who introduced me to Makeup Geek :D I look a tad different now :P 

Well this week hasn’t been a busy Instagram week ha, but I will be in Bali all next week so I will have lots of photos to show you all :D

Off to pack my bags!
