Can I talk about my lipstick for a moment? It's another one from Superdrug's MUA range (same as the bright pink I wore recently) and it was a pound. £1. One hundred English pennies. And it's great! I mean, obviously it doesn't compare with my Chanel, but it's pretty darn awesome for a quid: It's nice and creamy, goes on smoothly, and has reasonable staying power. It's perhaps a touch more drying than my expensive brand, but nothing a little vaseline can't take care of. And did I mention, it's a quid.
I'm enjoying having different colour options with my lipsticks - I've stuck faithfully to my bright red Chanel for a really long time, and it was time to branch out. I bought these two (this and the hot pink) cheapo lipsticks because I wanted to experiment with new colours to see how I got on with them before splashing out on a pricey version, but I can see I'm going to have to start saving up.
I love that this slightly darker red colour goes with my maroon headscarf, and complements the orangey-coral necklace much better than a true red.
It's kind of hard to see in the pics, but this is actually a playsuit, not a dress. It caught my eye when I was charity shopping a couple of months ago. I initially thought I'd sell it, but when I tried it on it was comfortable and a nice fit, and despite being modern-ish (no later than early 90s judging by the huge shoulder pads - which I removed) I thought it had a certain Landgirl-esque charm.
I've also been wearing headscarves a lot recently - my new haircut is too short to tie in a ponytail, so I quite often sweep it up into a headscarf to keep it off my neck for the gym or doing housework (what? I do housework!).
