Lazy Wednesday... a belated F + O TD post :)

So this past sunday we had great weather and a guest from overseas, so her and I met up with some friends on a patio late in the afternoon. This is what I wore on my face... and my body... haha.

*Note* This post also features two new products that were added to my arsenal over the past week: NARS Laguna bronzer and The Body Shop Yes Yes Yes lip butter. I love them both! Now on to the good stuff:


FACE: Chanel Pro Lumiere in 40 Beige intensity 2.0, MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark, NARS Laguna bronzer, MAC Dollymix blush (very light-handed)

LIPS: MAC Hello Kitty tinted lip conditioner in Pink Fish, The Body Shop "Yes Yes Yes" lip butter on top (very nice effect!)


EYES: Estee Lauder DoubleWear cream eyeshadow in Silver Leaf, MAC Sketch lightly with a 224 brush in the crease, Lancome Le Stylo Waterproof eyeliner smudged with 219 brush into upper lashline, GOSH Bananas eyeliner on the waterline, L'Oreal Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black.

On to the clothes - simple and not too much fuss, the usual:


Bad cropping in order to protect the innocent from showing up on the internet... haha :)

I paired a periwinkle tank top with flower and lace detailing with a high-waisted sand coloured tulip skirt courtesy of my love, BCBGmaxazria. Brown flats from Aldo, a silver Tiffany beads bracelet (on the arm not pictured) and a brown & gold wristlet completed the ensemble. Ta da!

I am now off to waste some time online before bed - I've been sick all day so hopefully things get better for me tomorrow. I'd hate to be sick on vacation. Speaking of which, I will be doing a "what I'm taking with me" post in the next few days. I'm trying to narrow things down because I don't have room in my luggage for excessive amounts of cosmetics. I always tend to overpack in that department.

Have a great week, everyone. xo

PS: I saw Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince last night at midnight like a true nerd and I loved it - minus the parts they left out - but I've gotten used to that by now. The books are so giant it's impossible to fit everything in. It's just a bit disappointing every time because with intricate books like that, sometimes it's all about the small details that make it such an enjoyable read for me :)
