Best of… September 11

Still playing catch-up…

Sept Cupcakes1

I spotted these polishes on Fashion Toast, but I still (two months later) can’t find them in the shops.  I need them. all.  Please can someone tell me where I can get them immediately.  I’m hoping to avoid another waiting list situation, where possible.  Waiting lists for nail polish is a little ridiculous.  Even I can see that.

I invested in my first NARS product a couple of months ago: the iconic ‘The Multiple’.  All the rumours are true- it is the most valued item in my make-up case.  Now I want everything else in the line.  This Laguna Bronzer will definitely be on my Christmas List this year.

So, on to clothes, and among the things I bowed down to during the month of September: Ripped jeans, marled grey, looking comfortable…

… and leather.  It’s too hot for leather here.  Although sometimes I get pangs of homesickness, I have not once (yet) missed the Irish weather. When I overhear people saying they miss the rain, I fight the urge to slap them.  I do miss leather though.  Leather, and oversized jumpers worn with jeans.  And boots.

I will be home for the Christmas break (in 3 weeks, 4 days and about 15 hours- but who’s counting?).  I’m looking forward to pulling out some old winter favourites, along with a couple of recent purchases- like this jumper (it’s the perfect slouchy fit- I bought it in two colours).

Fortunately, there’s also tons of hot-weather inspiration in the blogosphere to keep me going until December 16th.

P.s. Readers, I promise never to use the word ‘blogosphere’ ever again.  Ugh.

The multiple is a stick thing that can be used on cheeks, eyes and lips... but I mostly use it as a blush. The shade I have is Orgasm too, it's amazing isn't it?
