How on earth is my week in lipsticks series in double digits? Seriously.
Anyway, this week has been an unusaul one. Although, yet again, I’ve been a busy bee – I’ve also found myself getting run down and ill for a few days
not so fun. Even though I’ve not been feeling like I’m on my A game, I’ve still had a fun week. So on which note, here’s what I’ve been up to!
I admit it, I am a total sucker for a limited edition. Something about having something a bit unique in my makeup collection makes me feel way more special than it should. So when I was having a splurge on Anastasia Beverly Hills products a few weeks ago – the Master Palette by Mario caught my eye. Created in collaboration with New York based celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. (He’s Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist if you didn’t know.) I simply couldn’t say no and it ended up in my basket.
As Anastasia Beverly Hills is hard to get hold of in the UK, I thought I’d share my thoughts. You know, in case you fancy treating yourself too…
I make no secret about the fact I love exploring different places around London. So with this in mind, if I’m up bright and early on a Saturday morning you’ll often find me at Portobello Road’s world-famous antiques market. Now okay, I know you’re probably reading this like Fran? Antiques? Behave. Unlike what you might have seen if you’d spied it on Bargain Hunt though (don’t judge me, but as a student I watched a lot of day time TV.) it’s not all about the antiques. Portobello Road Market has a whole host of vintage fashion, street food and if you’re lucky the opportunity to pick up a designer bargain too…
I’ve been meaning to re-start these posts for a while. With starting my week in lipsticks and having a big to do list, well I just didn’t find the time. I did intend to start this last month, but I kinda forgot. Well, okay. Forgot is a stretch. I didn’t have time to get around to it until the 7th and then it seemed almost redundant to post about September a week into November. Oops. So, anyway I thought I’d start again fresh with doing this monthly..
On which note, here’s what happened in November;
In the run up to Christmas, one of my favourite evenings is always the one spent decorating the house. I don’t know about you, but in our house we spend an evening making the place look festive and then celebrate with a glass of mulled wine. We buy a new decoration each year and we always look for a unique way to style our living room year on year without blowing the budget. So when I heard about John Lewis’ Treetorials, an in store decorating masterclass I was intrigued to say the least;
I love it when people I read regularly attempt things such as Blogmas. (Which for any non-bloggers reading is posting daily in December until Christmas eve, kinda like an advent calander with less chocolate and more writing..). Admittedly, most of this is for the selfish reason that I have content from someone I enjoy reading every day on my commute. Despite enjoying it so much, I’ve never thought to do it myself. Why? Because with working full-time and a fairly active social life, well I didn’t think I’d have time. So why did I change my mind?
