Friday's Favourites

Friday 15 June 2012

Hi everybody!! I've been a bit quiet for the last few days because I've been sick. Yep, you read that correct. I'm sick AGAIN! I feel like a broken record saying I'm sick. No one ever told me that as a parent your child will be getting colds every 2 weeks and therefore so will you! 

But never fear, there are always favourites to share. Here's what I have loved this week.

What I'm wearing...

I'm LOVING scarves and hats at the moment. I bought 2 beanies from Sportsgirl  yesterday and this scarf from Jeanswest (isn't the coral just so gorgeous!!!). Yes, I'm on my spending ban but needed a pick me up from being so sick. And what better way of hiding my terrible skin and hair behind some cute accessories!

Since I've been sick I've scaled back my skincare routine and have gone back to using Rosehip Oil. I was trialing the new NP Set Purifying Facial Cleanser (which smells amazing!) but this week have only used it at night and went back to using my Nude By Nature Natures Super Anti-Oxidant Foaming Cleanser (phew, that's a long title). I first started using this when I was pregnant, and have loved it ever since. It's my go to cleanser when my skin becomes sensitive. Because my nose was so sore and red, I was using a combination of First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Cream and my trusty A'kin Pure Emergency Gel. With their 2 super powers I have had my first official cold WITHOUT a dry flaky nose!! I am so impressed! 

Things I'm lusting for...

I can't wait until I'm well enough to try out my new 1 Skin Solution Tinted Lip Balm. It is sitting there begging to be used, but I really hate using lip products when I'm sick (I don't want my germs to be breeding in the tube) so I have to wait a day or two before using it! I got the Guava Lemonade which is a gorgeous coral colour.     

I love boots and am on the hunt for the perfect caramel coloured boots. I own so many boots, but am yet to find the right brown that are still comfy enough for work. Do you love boots as much as me? I think my love of boots came from my childhood love of Paddington Bear

Blogs or blog posts I've loved so much I've read more than once...

While I haven't participated in the 30 Days of Lippy, I have loved reading about it from other bloggers and seeing what lip products they use. Rosie from Lashes And Lattes, Ingrid from Glossy Beauty, and Michelle from My Little Space have all done some great posts about it. 

I agree with Hannah from Box And Brownie about how amazing emerald is! It goes with any colouring and is just so glamorous.

Over at Jimmi Lou we see just how many shoes Joanne takes with her away when she packs (hint: it's a LOT!). I love seeing what others pack.

On my mind...

Vogue's Online Shopping Night. I know I will break my spending ban, but there are so many great offers. Will you be joining in? I'm tempted to purchase some Alpha H products from Bellabox. Bellabox have 20% off for the night, free shipping on orders over $70 and a free OCC Lip Tar on orders over $100.
