These are the things Mumpty loves this week – 27/02/2015
Well, well, well – it’s been quite a while since I did a MumptyLoves so I thought now would be a good time to pop one in!
Actually, you may have found my blog has been a little on the quiet side lately, but never fear … I am busily working away behind the scenes and March promises to be a cracker – I promise! I will reveal all soon …
♥ My new Nude by Nature lipstick in Demure
Some might say, the perfect nude. I copied this from the lovely Kirsty of Makeup Obsessives fame, and I am very pleased I did. It’s fab and in my opinion, a girl can never really have too many nudes now can she?!
♥ Designer Brands – Hi-Lights Illuminator
This is a great little illuminator I got for free in my goodie bag from the Makeup Obsessives Meet-up (which you can read about here) – I’ve never used one before, but it’s lovely – it just catches the light really nicely and gives you a little glowy highlight on your cheekbones – if you know me, you’ll know I have quite a round face, so it’s nice to have some definition on the old cheek bones!
♥ Nina Proudman – from “Offspring”
I LOVE Nina – she’s hilarious. I love her style, her laugh, her facials – everything. But particularly – her style. It is SO fantastic – so very far away from anything that would suit me personally, but I love it all the same. Actually, I read an interview with Nina recently (well, the actress who plays Nina anyway!) and it said that her “style” is almost another character in the programme. Seriously – it’s that good. If you haven’t watched Offspring – you must! And … Google her fashion. You’re welcome.
♥ The Evelyn dress in yellow and black vintage floral print by Pinup Girl Clothing …
I got this dress for Christmas and for some reason I kept putting off wearing it as I felt it was too long for me and needed to be taken up. Anyway, I tried it on the other day and I don’t know what I was thinking – the length is fine! So I’ve been wearing it – and I love it. So feminine … although probably one of my more OTT dresses for work! One thing I did find I needed to do with it though was to remove the velvet bow on the bodice and move it up to the top of the bodice. That way I can wear a wide-ish belt with it, which I find I need to do as it nips in my waist and counters the fullness of the skirt. Anyone else done that to their Evelyn?
♥ These cushions …
Hahaaa … talk about confusing!
♥ LUSH Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser
This stuff is brilliant – brilliant I say! You just pull a little bit of the kind of clay-like product away; add a bit of water to make it into a paste and then massage it in to your skin. Rinse off and voilá … soft, dreamily clean skin!
♥ The obligatory Louboutins …
Yes – it’s time for another pair of Louboutins … because, well, I can! These are the Corafronts and I would VERY MUCH LOVE to have a pair in my wardrobe. I’m a sucker for red and black, I’m a sucker for hearts and I’m a sucker for patent. So really – I actually need them don’t I – it’s not just that I want them!
And while we’re talking about Louboutins … I found this recently and I think it’s great – and true.
