Recent Purchases: YSL, Lancome, Marc Jacobs, Forever 21

If you are following me on Twitter, im sure you heard already about my dental pains. Basically went for a routine scale and polish and found myself being prepared for wisdom tooth extraction. I knew they are a problem, but being the chicken that i am, thought i can postpone the removals indefinite.

I’m very lucky that my dentist is a gem and has a really good care of me, never in my life met a more gentle person!

Because i was very traumatized by the thought of an extraction, i treated myself with to some nice things after the appointments.

Lancome Teint Miracle shade 02

Teint Miracle remains my favorite foundation for a day time natural look.  My skin color seems to get lighter and lighter, i can tell i haven’t had a proper sun holiday this year. Well i suppose that means no sun damage and a younger looking skin for longer, so im happy with that. Stepped down from shade 03 to shade 02.

I’m alternating the Teint Miracle with the Double Wear, wearing the DW mainly when my skin is not looking its best. Luckily now i recovered completely after my allergy breakout from the Garnier 2in1 eye makeup remover and my skin is looking clear, knock on wood! I can attribute my smoothness to the new Normaderm moisturiser, review coming soon.

Forever 21 Jewelery

Jewelery is the only thing i look at when im Forever 21: they have a wide selection, are cheap and on trend. Great for a small pick-me-up.

Accessorize Rings (on Sale)

H&M Bracelet

and my new favorite fragrance:

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh

I was a fan already of the original Daisy, so had to get the one this summer edition. Daisy Eau So Fresh keeps the original notes, it just has a twist. It seems lighter and somehow has a bitter note, feels more grown up and elegant. Thankfully it comes in a 125ml size so i can shower in it.

Still have two wisdom to remove and unfortunately for me i will have to have surgery on them. Ah well, more excuses for post shopping sessions!

What have you being treated yourself lately?

    Thanks Karen, the jewelery got me loads of compliments already.

    Everybody weeps after the Adaptive, Teint Miracle has a slightly dewy finish when Adaptive was more matte as far as i remember. Ask for a sample and try it before you buy xxx

    Although the Teint Miracle I have is 03, I can tell it’s a fabulous foundation! I will have to purchase a lighter foundation to mix this with! So sorry to hear about your wisdom teeth, you’ll be as new in no time! And well done on your fab purchases, great excuse indeed! 😀 xoxo

    I thought it will be to dark for you, we seem to have similar skin tones. The 02 is perfect now, im slowly mutating into a fair skinned irish rose :))

    Have another two to take out, watch this space for more “feeling sorry for myself” purchases haha xxx

    your bow and butterfly necklaces are super cute!!

    I’ve bought jewelry from forever 21 before and they got rusty after a couple of months. I think it’s because water got onto them. =(

    Thank you Joyce, I like them too. They were so cheap, I don’t mind if they’ll get ruined in a few months, it will just make room for new models =) x
