Mac lip liner dupes (NYX edition) 


Just a mini blog tonight because I’m exhausted after having lots of fun with the kids today in the sun!

So basically I love lip liners. I love how they can change the shape of your mouth instantly without any effort. I really love all of the Mac range but like I said in my lipstick dupe post, I just can’t afford to buy them all the time.

So as time as gone by, I’ve tried lots of different cheaper brands to see if I can find some similar colours. Now obviously I only wear certain shades of lippy, so can only comment on the ones I’ve tried but in almost certain there will be a dupe for every shade they stock.

NYX seem to be the favourite so far, which Helps because I adore anything by them. So here’s a few I’ve tried and tested, I wish I had…

He could see the birds in the distance

flying and landing

surprised at the number gathered

Now in the cloud was able to see

dark shapes swooping

the pain as they attacked pecking

other forms approached

he began to run his arms flaying

here did not intend staying!

Exhausted his energy was drained

high above the birds made it dark

injured could only lay

through closing eyes the birds left

he body was bereft!

There was not a  sign of any birds

the sky was pure

he was found on the beach below

the high crumbling cliff

Blog Stalking // Sea of Shoes.

Ordinary Adventures

I am a very new fan and stalker of Jane Aldridge’s blog, Sea of Shoes. I actually came across it through Bloglovin just this past weekend. But I literally, instantly fell head over heals in love with the twenty-three year old’s website. Since then I have spent an exorbitant amount of time browsing through her hundreds of pages of unique and awesome style, and honestly, I’m still trying to get over her hair. It is perfect.

When I went all the way back to the start to her very first posts, I saw just how much Jane’s blog and style had transformed and evolved over the years. In the past eight years, she has come out as her own amazing model, fashion icon, and photographer. She has made an incredible life and blog since then, and I am so glad I get to stalk through it.

Unfortunately there isn’t…

2. Meeting #2 : Your Second First Impression

a) Wear dark colours, with a single power acent.
b) Every Hair in place. Hair movement is a sign of weakness.
c) And whatever you do, don’t speak first.
90% of negotiations are lost by the person who speaks first.
Note : Use fake phone call to buy time in an emergency situation.

3. Meeting #3 (If loose the first initiative) : On your home turf.

a) Anticipate counter move, employing “A shortness is weakness” power axiom.
b) Be the first person, to do power quiet talking,forcing the negotiatee to lean in
and wonder if they’re missing any key phrases.
c) If the negotiatee is doing the sorcerer’s apprentice, respond with a pirate holiday,and negotiatee have no choice but to play the hillbilly auction.

4. After a negotiation,the winner should get the loser a gift.
