|Birthday Haul - in case you are wondering, the box half hidden is a huge set of Agatha Christie audio books, am slightly obsessed with murder mysteries!|
I picked out my favourite birthday card, sourced by my mother, very appropriate for my blog I thought. So happy to finally have the Le Metier de Beaute Kaleidoscope Eye Kit in Le Cirque and I was even more happy to have been able to successfully recreate the makeup look Mikey did for me in London for dinner last night.
Unfortunately, I had decided to start a diet/healthy eating plan (a struggle for someone who hates fruit and veg) so the Hummingbird Bakery Cook Book will be a big temptation. The chocolate cup cake recipe is to die for, and yes I know because I made them already, diet starts when cakes are gone.
I'm hoping that the By Terry Lip Balm will help my dry lips during the night and the plan is to recreate the YSL Couture Manicure for tomorrow's post after being inspired by British Beauty Blogger's attempts with the purple and gold duo, I even have the manicure guides so am well prepared.
A big thank you for the Happy Birthday comments, I was really touched and it put a smile on my face all day.
Just one slightly random question for you all, does anyone know of any good body creams for very dry skin? In the last six weeks my skin has undergone a total transformation from normal to ultra oily & spotty on my face and dry as the Sahara everywhere else, arms in particular. I had been using Decleor's System Corps but it is just not up to the job anymore. So this is an SOS for any of your tips or must have body moisturisers before my skin turns to scales (is not that far off!).
