These are the things Mumpty loves this week – 24/10/2014
I’ve personally used this foundation (in good old Cafe Au Lait!) for most of my adult life and while I have moved away from it over the past couple of years, I still have a couple of compacts and every now and then I pull one out, use it and fall in love all over again! Well, as much as one falls in love with foundations that is! It gives a pretty good cover; goes on easily, stays on well and lasts forever, so is good value for money. Apparently it has been Moisture Mist’s best-selling foundation for over 30 years, so they must be doing something right, right?! And while I’m sure there are better and more “technologically advanced” products out there, I still think this is a goodie and I will continue to use it on and off as my whim dictates!
♥ The Louis Vuitton Icons collection – Karl Lagerfeld
Last week MumptyLoves looked at Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Christian Louboutin – this week it’s Mr Chanel himself, Karl Lagerfeld – he of the grey ponytail! Mr Lagerfeld has been wonderfully impractical and designed a punching bag, complete with boxing gloves and a travelling trunk to store it in! Not to mention the gorgeous rounded “gym bag” that goes with it. I cannot even IMAGINE the price tag on this lot!
♥ Gala Darling’s #lovetober Instagram challenge
I did a post on this earlier in the month – you can read it here. Now that we’re 24 days into it, I can safely say I’m loving this challenge! Click here to see my entries in the challenge and search #lovetober to see the whole gloriously colourful challenge!
Plus I was very excited to get a mention in Gala’s weekly roundup (see above), but unfortunately I didn’t get a prize – dammit! If you look closely at the pic, you will see that the outline of the bikini is very deceiving! This is the work of the amazing Joanne Gair, who I interviewed here and here.
♥ I won a signed poster of Lilly Loca!
For those of you who may not know Lilly Loca, she is one of the wonderful alter-egos of Nat Hugill, an Auckland burlesque performer. Nat is also an actress, drama teacher, producer, model and emcee. Not to mention her most recent role as Mum to a little baby girl. Gosh how I love social media competitions! You can find Lilly Loca on Facebook here.
♥ Liz at one-twenty-five
I’ve been following the antics of Liz at one-twenty-five for quite a while now and she is one of the funniest, most brutally honest bloggers around. The original premise of her blog was her goal weight of 125lbs, but her blog is just so much more than that. In fact, it’s not a weight loss blog at all any more – she’s just a bloody good writer and it’s a pleasure reading her blog every day. Check her out – you’ll be glad you did!
♥ The Bonita Danger Doll 2015 calendar
Continuing with the burlesque theme … how amazing is this pic of the incredible Bonita Danger Doll? And just think – you can have eleven more stunning pictures like this if you buy her calendar – I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting one. To purchase this fabulous calendar for yourself, click here. And guess what – Bonita will sign it for you too!
Sooo … it’s time for the gratuitous Louboutin shot! Who wouldn’t love a pair of these highly impractical Miss America 150mm slingbacks? Now that is a pair of “photo shoes” if I ever did see one!
