Marc Jacobs decadence for my Winter/date night Fragrance: Grown and Sexy

Purchasing  my first designer perfume was a daunting internal struggle but the need to spoil myself and curiosity about what it is about owning fancy designer perfume that puts a spring in womans step  proved to be stronger than my financial inhibitions. The lovely assistant at red squaremidlands mall who had previously assisted me with a completely unrelated scorched pot conundrum was patient enough to walk me through some of the choices I was interested in and his own recommendations for a novice like myself.

My makeup lately

The last time I talked to you all about makeup, I was reviewing the yardley stayfast foundation which to this day, try as I might am still not a fan of. That was before I took an 8 month long on and off haitus from the blogosphere but in that time, I've continued to play around and some makeup habits and products of mine have changed.

I tried The Body Shop's Drops Of Light for my Hyperpigmentation

At this point, I am 99.9% sure that there are forces beyond human comprehension working against me. Right after my heartfelt pledge to do better, a glass of wine spilled onto my computer and with it, my 5 post drafts and dreams of a blog makeover died. Also, its 2018 and still don’t have the skin of my dreams.You would think after the incident I had with one of the products from the body shop that actually caused the hyper pigmentation around my mouth, I would run the other way yet here I am putting my faith in an entire range to clear said discolouration without having read/watched a single review.

Fragrance wishlist

If money were no obstacle, what fragrance would you buy for yourself? I like to image that by the time the average woman has transitioned from student life to working adult, she has already compiled a list of her first designer bags, shoes and accessories to purchase with that first paycheck, after black tax of course. I generally don’t have a problem with affordable perfumes being an avon babes myself but ever since I received a fake Carolina Herrera as a gift, I’ve kind of become obessesed with window shopping for designer fragrances in case it happens again or an opportunity to purchase something presents itself.

Hello, its me. . .again

I hate to be one of those bloggers who go MIA for months at a time and come back willy nilly, but all I can do right now is acknowledge it an apologise. I’ve been trash at this blogging thing and I feel bad because you all deserve better. The previous semester truly broke me and it’s still too much of a tender wound to offer as an explanation and share, just yet.

Outfit Fail

A fashion fave of mine said silver is back in this spring and as an owner of a nice pair of shiny platform heels, I fully endorse this vendetta. I’ve wanted to have another go at styling these shoes since my boring eventing outfit but you know how you plan the perfect out in your head and then see it in the mirror and its like, . . . no. *sigh, thats exactly what happened when I thought I could just throw on pair of embroidered jeans, fish net stockings, and some silver platform heels and call it a day. I tried something and it didn't turn out as great as thought it would and thats been happening a lot lately. I've been in a fashion funk for over a year now an somethings got to give. WTF?!
