Do you ? I do. But today was a special Monday. Very awfully busy at work but sometimes somebody just takes you by surprise and makes your heart go sweet and happy. Since my new host is not ready yet to host me… I have to wait for the site migration but in the meantime I wanted to share my Monday with you, and also ask you something at the very end of this post.
So… busy day but funny day. Remember the Furbys in the year 2000 ? I believe it was released around that year. I had one and loved it to pieces, just made me laugh like a little child. But I lost it, let’s say I left my ex and in the rush I forgot it 😀 Today one colleague started playing a demo video of this Furby in the open space. My BF works with me in the same open space and when he saw our colleague’s video, he knows I love this toy so he called me to show me and I went kind of crazy dancing the Furby dance in the crowded open space myself… just can’t help it, it’s a contagious dark force transmitted by the silliest toy. There I was looking like a 3 year’s old. Since my BF was still around -looking away like he doesn’t know me but still- I said “I would loooove the little white one” at least 10x – you know, hoping he could hear my voice… and buy me one !! I know him, that won’t happen, he has a thousand qualities but the surprise factor nope. But I’ll definitely buy one some day.
Why was behaving like a 3 years old worth mentioning ? Because after work I went to a book shop then I went to a drugstore to buy PH testers for my future post on brush cleaning, I am doing some research for that post. In my way one cannot skip the sales corner right ? I saw the Guerlain palette from the LIU collection, of course I had to get it for me because it was half price and I heard good things about it. Then I also got a Cruel Gardenia but not for me this time, this will be part of a little Giveaway in my future website providing we survive the migration…
The Cruel Gardenia is a bit damaged on the exterior of the petals but it’s because somebody touched the sides with the packaging, anyway, I still think this could be an interesting piece for a giveaway.
While I was getting ready to pay, the lady at the counter was searching for a lot of samples to give me, I didn’t stop her, always happy to try high end skincare. So once she got all of them on the table she started explaining “hmmm this one is for a +25 years old, so not much for you actually“. Okay…. I thought she was kidding, she thinks I am under 25… . I replied “it should be fine I can handle it, I am 42”
I think I heard her jaw hit the counter, she called her colleague and told her I was 42… I think I heard another jaw hit the counter. I mean … seriously ??? No it can’t be. Do they really think I could be under 25 ??? If we take the average of my previous 3 years old attitude with my current age of 42, it makes 22.5, so yes, only like that it can be true… 😀 This lady chatted with me for a long while, asked me for my secret, she still gave me a lot of samples that could target my very dry skin and also a few other pieces, it was fun, but I don’t think that you can get a better compliment and that was the better part.
It has been a while since I shared some fav make up items with you, which takes me to my Monday make up routine, that apparently can make you look a bit younger 😀 works for me !
Since I hate Mondays so much, that day my make up routine has to be 100% straightforward, safe and fool-proof. This can be achieved with these products :
I bought the Addiction Tuxedo moon eye shadow palette in Japan and it has already dips in the lighter pans, it’s fantastic, looks like a too boring palette but I can manage a very sexy look with that and it lasts all day long. I apply the grey in the mobile lid, the pinkish till the browbone, the brown in the crease and the black in the outer V. With some Lancome In Love Chocolate Affair, a black eyeliner (here the Dolly Wink) and my RMK mascara.
For the lips I combine two lipliners, the darker RBR in Marco on the outside (thick blurred line) and the By Terry in Rosy Nude to fill the rest in, then I apply a coral Suqqu lipstick.
For the face I still use Ellis Faas and as blush one the new Edward Bess (Secret Affair or Bed of Roses). My Monday brushes that never disappoint are the new Chikuhodo GSN 5 (foundation) and GSN 4 (blush), I am completely utterly in love with them. You can use this foundation brush with just any foundation at all, and this blush brush has my favorite shape ever for blushes (flat and round) paired with softness and density. So there you go, an easy but efficient combination of products that I like to use when I want the insurance for an easy yet sexy youthful routine.
After my little shopping, since I missed the train (twice) and since I am home alone tonight, I went to McDonalds to eat a children’s happy meal, due to my food intolerances a little hamburger is all I can afford but I get a toy for my 3 years old self, well, how funny is the fact they gave me this little guy here !!! The beauty-smurf !!! I couldn’t help laughing at the table, that’s a keeper !
Ok, that’s it for my Monday, how about yours ???
Actually I have a question for you… you know I am preparing the forum, not the usual forum you would see in a beauty hub but I hope you’ll enjoy. I am reading Dante at the moment so forgive me if my categories may have a wicked name… Kind of… “Welcome to the Purgatorium… confess your sins and embrace your passion” 😀 😀 😀
I have already a lot of topics covered but if you have a special request, something you dream to be able to talk about in a forum, let me know and I may be able to include it if not already there.
