I think that my taste in nail polish has changed quite a bit in the recent past. I am really loving nudes and almost nudes, subtle pastels, but also the odd dark burgundy for my nails. But one of my all time favourite nail colours to sport is a pale, pale pink. It is white but not white, neutral but not nude, feminine without being too out-there and just over all very pretty. And here the nail polish I've been sporting for most of September.

I love cleaning up and organising. I really do. But there are some parts of my room I like to ignore. My makeup drawers, for example. There's just too much stuff that requires (immediate) attention and throwing out, that I like to ignore it altogether. But recently I decided to not think about it too much and just go for it. Clean that shiz up. So I pulled out all my makeup and had a good look at it. And here are some of the gross, expired, dried up or just plain unflattering gems I pulled out.

I believe that makeup is meant to be played with. There aren't rules here. If a product doesn't work for me a certain way, I try using it for something else. For example, the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous was a very exciting purchase for me because I had heard so many good things about this product. However, I was disappointed when I tried it on because it just wasn't pigmented enough for me and looked odd and glossy on my lips. Not my best look. But then I came up with an alternate use for it. Now I love it.

I had an obsession with buying dressy dresses. Expensive, dressy dresses. Until one day I realized that I have so many of them and barely enough places to wear them to. If you have friends like mine, you'd know how the only places you go out to are eating places that don't require you to throw on those heels and that snazzy dress. Putting on some red lipstick is as fancy as it gets.
So now, I like to buy clothes that can easily be dressed up or dressed down.

I've been down with all sorts of illnesses lately. It sucks but I've just been chillin' at home, skipping college. Well, not really. I still have loads of work to do, articles to write, exams to study for. I've recently been OBSESSED with Twitter. It's incredibly fun to read about irrelevant details of people's lives. No, it really is. Link me to your twitter handle, if you're on it too.
Anyway, here's what I've been up to since my last Instagram post.

So do you remember how sometime in the beginning of this year I had done a post called My 2014 Realistic Makeup Wishlist? Well, a month ago, I went ahead and got myself one of the products mentioned in there. It was a bit of a tough purchase to make because I was basically about to give away my money to get myself some liquid eyeliner that was going to dry up in a few months anyway. But I love eyeliner and wear it all the time. So I finally bit the bullet and bought the L'oreal Super Liner Instant Impact Felt Liner. My idea was that if it could give me even a few months of really good eyeliner days, it would be worth the seven hundred or whatever bucks I pay for it.

Do you have moments in your life when you feel like absolute poo? Well, I have them a lot. I've been meaning to put up a product review on here for a while now but haven't gotten around to doing it. I don't even know why. Life has been too overwhelming, yet underwhelming at the same time.
I never really write about anything personal on here, but through the years my blog has started to become a better representation of who I really am. And since I was having one of my often recurring shitty days, I decided to write about it on my internet diary instead of in the book lying somewhere in the back of my cupboard. I don't even know if anyone is going to end up reading this. But if you are, I hope I don't bore you too much.
