Month: August 2014
It’s a beautiful day in Scotland, which has cheered me up immensely! I’m going to head out and enjoy the sunshine after this post and maybe find a part of Aberdeen I haven’t been to yet. I’ve got today and tomorrow off which was kind of an accident but hey who doesn’t love an impromptu holiday?
I also had one of my friends up to visit this weekend, it was lovely to see a friendly face. We checked out some of Aberdeen’s bars and clubs; now bear in mind we’re from a city famous for it’s nightlife so we were a little disappointed by the clubbing- sorry! However we did find some awesome cocktail bars. One in particular had won awards for it’s drinks and had a whole section of the menu dedicated to savoury cocktails, which I loved. I find most alcoholic drinks can be made a little sickly sometimes so I’ll definitely be visiting again for more vegetable based cocktails.
My parcel from H&M arrived over the weekend as well; which contained these trousers (I love that they look like pyjamas) and this floppy hat. I’ve been after a woolen floppy hat for a while and whilst I do like this one, I’m going to continue searching for one with a wider brim. I’m wearing Topshop’s Rio Rio lipstick- I bought this last week and absolutely adore it!
I hope you’re all enjoying this Summer day!

So it’s a little late but I’ve just been hanging around the house tonight slowly creating a blog post as I know I won’t be doing any blogging this weekend. One of my besties is coming up to stay so I’m really excited and will most likely be too preoccupied to do anything productive.
I’ve been wanting to do a turquoise smoky eye for a while and I happened upon this Bourjois palette up when I was in Boots last week. I know I won’t wear these colours very often in reality but it was on 3 for 2 and so only cost me about £4. I also spent £10 on bindis and face jewels from Claire’s Accessories (well worth the money- I don’t care what anyone says!). So I was able to create an aqua princess look.
The eyeshadow was pretty awful if I’m honest. I wasn’t massively disappointed as my expectations are never too high for ‘drugstore’ products anyway.When I opened it I was impressed that it came with a liner, but it just slides off the skin as does the powder. It also irritated my eyes so much I started crying! So if you’re on a high street/ drug store budget I would say try a different product.
Let me know what you think of the bindi trend- personally I’m loving it obviously!
Goodnight! Love Eleanor xxx
