Thoughts of the week 003.


01. This week has been mighty swell; gallery openings, lovely people and more than one brunch.

02. I'm buying books at a faster pace than I can read them. To see what I've read, am reading and what I want to read, check out my Goodreads.

03. This made me a bit teary.

04. I finally saw the new Wes Anderson. The sets were glorious.

05. The Wayne Goss method. If you're yet to try it, you must. I've been loving foundations I'd previously written off as Good time Gertrudes.



06. Gutterpunch comics are my daily read.

07. I found my winter boots at Nordstrom, I'm waiting for them to hit my doorstep. I'm nervous as to whether they fit - I've never bought boots online before and it all seems to be a lot of fretting.


09. I saw my boyfriend's sister play roller derby this weekend. It made me very dizzy.

10. Am I the only Australian welcoming winter? Scarves, boots & beanies, oh my!

Thoughts of the week 002.

Amy Judd
01. The last fortnight of public holidays galore has made me incredibly happy.

02. The best 100 opening lines from books.

03. After watching the first season of Game of Thrones a while back, I finally got around to binge watching seasons two and three. Now I understand the response to the Red Wedding on Twitter.

04. Revlon Matte Balm in Standout is my perfect Autumnal red.
05. I made a glorious lemon tart for a dinner party following this recipe.

06. There has finally been some progress on my house. We signed back in September last year and they've only just marked out our land and begun constructing the road.

07. I've been avidly pinning home and garden inspiration on my Pinterest. This house building is beginning to feel real.

08. I was able to resist the ASOS sale earlier in the week.

09. Where is my mind?

10. I've becoming anosmic to my favourite perfume. Woe.

Empties.


Original Mineral The Power Base Protein Treatment
This is a staple item, I have already cracked my backup.

The Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Butter*
This smelt divine; floral, clean and very soothing. It removes makeup well, however irritated my sensitive skin with all the synthetic ingredients and perfume.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
This sad, labeless tube is heading straight to the bin and I won't be repurchasing. I didn't get on with Healthy Mix until I discovered the Wayne Goss method of primer, powder, foundation, powder. Without something to cling to, I found this foundation to fade patchily within 3 hours.

Face of Australia Liquid Liner
This has lingered in my drawer for 3 years. That's not something I want to put near my eyes. I vaguely remember liking it, however won't repurchase as I can't be parted with Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner.

Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner
Other than smelling gorgeous, I felt this too cumbersome and greasy to contend with on a regular basis. It's been real, Ro's but I won't buy you again.

Thoughts of the week 001.

Naomi Okubo

01. I'm not sure if it's a waning interest in accumulating beauty products or a general malaise, however I thought it'd be nice to keep the flame alive with some non-beauty posts in the vein of Jessica and Natalie.

02. I can't stop burning my Palm Beach Sandalwood & Clove candle.

03. I have spent all Easter long weekend in bed after putting my back out, watching BBC bonnet dramas and reading books. Other than the pain I will admit to this having been my ideal way to spend Easter.

04. I love this and can't stop coming back to it.

05. When I wear Haus of Gloi Haus Amber perfume oil, I struggle to physically remove my wrists from my nose. Delicious.


06. I celebrated my birthday this past week by showering myself with gifts, including this handbag (inspired by Jessica) and this quilt.

07. I'm doing very poorly with my footy tipping this round, however I'm very pleased with Port Adelaide's season thus far.

08. I'm on the look out for winter boots, a tedious task for my amply-calved self.

09. So beautiful.

10. Sally Hansen Greige has not left my digits for weeks.
