FOTD - way overdue!!

First of all i want to give a big shout out to Laura at MyBloggyBlog. Not only does she have an awesome blog but she is lovely too! She left a bunch of comments on a few of my post in such an awesomely friendly,funny and articulate way that i feel like i know her! Laura, dont take this gush as weird - Just really touched that you took the time to comment! So go check her out! Now!

Moving on, its about time I posted another Photo Of The Day. So here it is:

This is a reasonably typical look for me. Despite the red lippie, its quite a low maintenence look..and for a day spent reading in the now-warmer-than-its-been-in-a-while sun, this was perfect. Heres what i used:


Lily Lolo mineral foundation in Porcelain

Lily Lolo cover up in Blondie

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brink ig gold to highlight the cheekbones

Prestige Skin Loveing Minerals Blusher in 01 Pink


MAC Amber Lights e/s all over the lid

Bourjois White Diaphane under the brow.


Boots No 7 Lipstick in Hot Chili + Lipcote<-- Genius.

So thats it. Lovely day had.


  1. i love the red lips! you rock it girl! wish i could sport some red lips too w/o feeling overwhelmed, haha!

  2. Thanks aquaracer!i agree, some days its does seem a bit too much, other days i just cant help myself from piling it on! i bet you look gorgeous with a red pout though!x

I have just managed to find your blog again, I KNOW I was following you, but you disappeared from my list, and I swear everyday I thought to myself I wonder where she has gone...low and behold, I find it's MY blog once again playing tricks on me, and deleting things without my permission! So...I owe you an apology, I was following, then I missed a BIG bit, but now I'm here (off sick) and catching up on all of your fabulous bloggingness :) Have missed your blog, I'll be having stern words with blogger!!!
