My love is such a darling....
I came home from a loooooooong day at work and discovered this

How exciting! 
So of course I eagerly unwrapped it and look what I found

Eeeeek! I've been wanting this so bad!

And smells so good!

Lipstick Swatch // Rimmel Rouge

Today I have another lipstick swatch to show you. 

I recently received a bundle of goodies from ilovebeauty - as you may well be aware from my last post. I am slowly but surely trying to make my way through swatching my goodies...

Here is another beautiful lipstick! 
Rimmel Moisture Renew in Rouge. 

This lipstick was actually very moisturising, but accordingly wore off rather quickly... The colour is lovely and vibrant and I would explain the end finish as a satin as oppose to an intense gloss or deliberate matte. I will most definitely be wearing this again! 

Now for some pictures for ya'll

Thanks for checking this post out, I really hope you enjoyed it. 

Lipstick Swatch // Elizabeth Arden

For Christmas MyLove purchased me an ilovebeauty voucher. 
Now as you may know I am very fond of ilovebeauty... So it was a perfect gift! 

I got around to spending the voucher and this lipstick is one of the goodies I purchased! 

And I love it! 
This is probably one of my favourite lipsticks!

This colour looks so bright in the tube, so at first I was a little hesitant, but then this is on, boy does it shine! 

The staying power is amazing! this lasted most of the day, even with eating, drinking and all sorts of talking...

As one would expect from Elizabeth Arden, superb packaging, chic sleek case and a smooth formula that glides on easy! 

Outfit of the day // Denim Dress

Cute and comfy... 
It makes me feel a little bit country.

I must say thought I was pulling my white singlet-slip down a number of times throughout the day, and pulling my tights up. I should wear leggings next time.

Outfit of the day / blocks of blue!

This dress is super cute and comfy! 
I got this on sale recently at Glassons, and decided I needed a bright top to "expose" at the back. 

Is it not just so simple and cute! and it actually fits quite nicely at the front, considering it's a skater skirt style, which usually does not suit me. 
so yay! 

and work-wear appropriate!


Dress: Glassons
Singlet: Bonds
Necklace: Diva
Ring: SilverMoon
Tights: Farmers
Shoes: The Warehouse

now for some fun shots of today's outfit!
