Quiet Space

I know it's been rather quiet in this little nook of the internet as of late, so I felt like giving a little update. I'm currently in the process of moving across the country and things have been a little hectic to say the least haha...but I've been missing blogging and didn't want this space to sit and collect dust.

Basically, my entire life fits into a mixture of eleven small/medium moving boxes. At first as I was packing up my things I thought I was doing relatively well in terms of keeping things to a "minimum", but come moving them to the post office and sweating my a** off, I realised that no, eleven boxes is ridiculous for one human being...but here I am waiting for everything to arrive in one piece (finger crossed) so I can unpack and get my life together and situated. 

I also wanted to make this post to tell you about two things I'm loving these past few beauty bit and one fashion related...or as my brothers would say "fashion violation" haha. 

So, first for the fashion violation...

Birkenstocks. You either love them or you hate them...I obviously love them. After lusting after them for nearly two years I finally bought them a few weeks ago. Who cares if they give me "hobbit" feet because you know what? They are SO damn comfortable people. I bought mine in the Arizona Black Suede Soft Bed in the size 37 (I go between a size 6 1/2 and 7 US just for reference). They literally feel like they are hugging your feet...also, make sure your feet are in good condition because they definitely bring attention to them. 

Onto the beauty bit...

Firstly, excuse the nails and ridiculously dry skin...I'm still battling the effects of the Retin-A  -__-
I am absolutely loving the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in 03 Strawberry Kissed. This stuff is phenomenal. I get so many compliments when I wear this it's almost shocking. You can eat and drink with this and it stays put. I don't have to worry about retouching and it feels really comfortable on the lips. However, there are a few things to keep in mind before using this...

1. If you have dry lips I would definitely stay away...or you  could exfoliate and moisturise the hell out of your lips beforehand to try make it work. 
2. Do not...I repeat, DO NOT wear any type of lip balm underneath. It will not set and consequently smear all over.
3. Stay away from oily/sauce-y foods...I wore this while eating Thai food and although it stayed pretty damn well it was moving around quite a bit and wiped away easily. 
4. Use a makeup wipe/oil remover to take it off...easy peasy. 

I bought the 01 Always Red as well but I've been so hooked to Strawberry Kissed that I can't bring myself to use anything else. For $13 I highly recommend...hell, even if it was $30 I'd still recommend it. I wish all of my lipsticks were this formula now #dammit. 

Hopefully see you soon!
