A few things. Firstly, our oven is on the blink so we're resorted to crisp sandwiches and takeaways for feeding purposes which isn't all bad, but has sent my diet skyrocketing out of the window. In all honesty, the diet, so to speak, has been pretty much whatever I can fit in my mouth between gulps of wine and shame, but whatevs.
Secondly, I've been wallowing a lot lately. In self-pity, in questionable outfit choices and in the fact that I have no acceptable response when someone asks where I see myself in five year's time - apparently, 'owning every NARS blusher' isn't a valid answer. There's also an element of disgust. Disgust at the fact that chocolate has become my daily staple and I've been unable to string two blog sentences together without sounding somewhat 'unhinged'.
That right there is what four hours sleep looks like.
Let's cut to the backstory.
Recently Daisy had that op. The one where a heartless soul (me) robs her of ever becoming a mother, although, in my defense, I have gifted her a life without periods and if anything, that's a pretty decent consolation.
I know, I know... 'Summer ready' make up is pretty much my every day, hence the title. In reality, if I'm not leaving the house to go anywhere interesting, I tend to stick with a little moisturiser and, if I'm really pushing the boat out, I'll fill in my brows and slap on a bit of mascara.
Hands up for beauty blogger of the year...
Anyway, if effort is required, these are the products I've been reaching for to give me that Summer ready face:
Yes. Yes, I am. Call it what you will, the obsession is real. Plus, there's an Inglot store on every corner in Abu Dhabi so - justified!
Anway, my love for Inglot eye shadow pans is well documented. I raved about them in my recent, 'What's in my Z Palette?' post, (plus a million other posts that you can check out here.) I'd never tried any of their pigments, however, and with a brief dabble at the counter, I was immediately sold on this coppery beauty.
