FOTD and my first of 4 packages!

Happy Saturday!

I confess, this photo of the day should really be 'Photo of Yester Day'. I meant to post this last night when i was getting ready to head out to the cinema but ended up spending the time learning a bunch of songs for today's gig. Anyway, gig done and my focus is back so here's yesterdays FOTD.This is quite a different approach for me. I'll admit that i may be a creature of habit...i tend to go the same look whenever i have somewhere to go - usually its a classic winged liner with a pale gold shadow with bright lips...but last night i felt like i was having an eye day. I went for a smokey eye (it was a LOT darker in real life) and kept the blush and the lips really simple.

Here's what i used:

Face: Lily Lolo Foundation in Porcelain, Lily Lolo Cover Up in Blondie, Mac MSF in Perfect Topping as a highlight, Nars Orgasm.

Eyes: Mac Silver Ring all over the lash, Mac Carbon Black in the outer V, Mac Rice Paper in the inner corner and under the brow bone, a smudgy layer of GOSH velvet touch in Carbon along the lash line and waterline.

Lips: Vaseline Rosy Lips (i told you it was simple!)

And that as they say, is that.

In other news (imagine me saying that with my newsreader voice), the first of my parcels arrived yesterday. I was soooo excited. The poor postie got a fright when i answered the door so quickly...well to be fair i was lying in wait with my eye glued to the peep hole. Ah well, he should be prepared for girls who want packages! So here's what arrived!

This is Me and Zena's Lightning Love necklace in beautiful trashy gold. I never used to be a fan of gold jewellery but i have to admit i quite like a bit of garish gold. Its not all together 'tasteful'...but then jewellery is made to adorn. I don't want boring. I think it is the perfect balance between pretty, fun and simple and i love that it comes with a handy storage pouch. cute.

Its hung from a really gorgeous 16 inch delicate chain and I have to say that i love it. And that's a damn good thing as it wasnt too cheap but i'd rather pay more for one thing that I will wear again and again. Its going to be hard to get me to take it off. Proof: jammies and jewels. The perfect combo!

Receiving packages is like eating Pringles...i just want more! can wait to get my swap parcel now!
