I get paid on the 23rd - this happened on the 24th. C'est La Vie. Any of you 90's chicks out there will be - hopefully - Irish dancing around the room with me now after me saying the words "C'est La Vie" instantly took you back to 1998; where you are 8 years old and are pretending that you are the lost fifth member of the smash hit band B*Witched, perfecting your high kicks and Irish accent by repeating the phrase "Some people say I look like me dad." ← (what?...) but getting too tired so you take a "Funny Feet Ice Lolly" break

Anyone?

So, yes, I did done did some shopping. Kielh's firstly; I j'adore (more French, Pas de problème) their Ultra Facial Moisturizer but I have been wearing the version without SPF and since I've started using more chemical exfoliants (see the post about my love for Glycolic Acid here) I need to protect the facial area from the sun so I have added the SPF 30 version to my wardrobe. A few weeks ago, me and Mr Beatnik went to Dublin for his 21st (that's right, I have a toyboy, I'm ballin' over here) and we stayed in The K Club, a golf resort, so while Mr B golfed - I did some serious spa-ing. This included a facial, which involved me getting a slap on the knuckles for not exfoliating around my nose area properly; thus leading to dehydratedness. So I purchased a new facial scrub; Kiehl's Clearly Corrective White Skin Brightening Exfoliator. This contains White Birch, Peony Extract & Ceramides and claims to "improve skin surface texture, illuminate the skin and even skin tone". I really have enjoyed using this so far, every time I use it I get instant satisfaction and results - looking forward to seeing further skin improvements. Kiehl's can do no wrong in my eyes. Big fan.

I was coming to the end of my Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation and I was spending much, much time review reading, researching and window shopping but then I ended up buying this foundation on a complete impulse/whim instead. Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation; this is my first Illamasqua make-up product which is cray-cray because I read nothing but praises all the time about this brand. I use the shade 'Alabaster' in Bobbi Brown foundations (yeah, I am that pale) and the reference guide at Illamasqua suggested a combo of their shades 1 and 2 to match Alabaster - I plumped for shade 2 which has actually turned out to be a touch too pale but I ain't mad because I AM OBSESSED. I have incredibly oily skin in the T-zonal area but here I am sitting 8 hours after application and fully mattified still. A good one for you oily girls, great coverage too. Lastly, this little treat; This Works deep sleep pillow spray this stuff is well renowned around the blogging world and for a very good reason. I have been a log the past week when spraying this before bed, I've had to turn the volume up on my alarm - it's that good. God help me if there's a fire, I am an actual zombie on this.

I'm off now to listen to the complete works of B*Witched on Spotify - sorry not sorry.

  2. I am going to have to get round to purchasing some of the This Works sleep range, I have always struggled sleeping, and with exams around the corner they don't exactly help! Literally given myself a sore throat from all the talking I've done in my sleep over the past week. Need something to shut me up!
