For those of you who read my Fridaygram post last week, you’ll know that I’ve decided to to do a ‘week in review’ through my Instagram photos every Friday. I got some lovely comments on last week’s post so for all of you who enjoyed it, here it is again.
I had kind of a weird week this week, work is super stressful at the moment, but I counteracted that with some makeup shopping which always cheers me up! So here’s a look at what I got up to this week:
As regular readers will know, last Saturday we visited the incredible Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud for a celebratory lunch so Saturday’s Instagram posts were all around that. This is the outfit that I wore: ZARA Blazer, ZARA Dress, DVF Bag and ALDO Boots.
On Sunday after my very bold day of eating and drinking, I started the day the healthy way with some fresh blueberries. I love berries and try to eat them with breakfast every morning but it’s not always easy to get good blueberries. Once they go soft they just aren’t the same!
I also shared a picture of my make up look from Saturday’s lunch which was a dark rust smokey eye, and a nude lip.
Monday was just about one thing, the Oscars. Oh how I love Oscar season! My favourite look of the night was Saoirse Ronan and her green sequin Calvin Klein gown paired with a charcoal smokey eye, a nude lip and mismatching earrings.
I found these shoes in ZARA and fell in love. I’m all about metallic footwear this Spring and the minute I tried these on I was excited. The pointed flat court shoe has made a comeback in a big way so these little babies are very on-trend at the moment. And if you haven’t already guessed by now, I’m a huge fan of ZARA!
Like I said earlier, I decided to treat myself to some new makeup this week. The first thing I treated myself to was the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani collection eye shadow palette. The shades in this palette are fab, and I’ve been dying to try this out for a while now.
I’m also loving the lipstick shades in the range. On my February wishlist I initially had the shade on the left, Red 714, but when I went to buy it, I also loved the colour on the right Rock Steady which is more of a burgundy tone. I couldn’t decide between the two so ended up walking away with neither.
Yesterday I shared this amazing picture our wedding photographer took of Dave and I on our wedding day. It’s one of my favourites out of all the pictures and I can’t stop looking at it. The post proved to be super popular too and I had one of my most successful viewership days on the blog so far with over 500 people viewing the post, eeek. So big thanks to everyone for stopping by to read it!
I also shared this video on my Instagram yesterday of me using my new Urban Decay eyeliner (which I also bought in my makeup haul). It’s the first video I’ve shared and I was a little nervous as I’m just learning how to navigate videos and editing, but it got over a hundred views which isn’t too bad, is it?! Please excuse how weird my face looks by the way, like I said, I’m just learning! 🙂
Now to this morning. I am currently looking at making our spare room into an office, beauty, reading, meditation room type thing, in other words a little haven where I can escape to! So I’ve been searching Pinterest for lots of inspiration. How cute is this home office that I came across?
Finally, I shared a picture of the new eyeliner I spoke about above. It’s Urban Decay’s Ink for Eyes Felt Tip Eyeliner pen and it’s so easy to use. I usually use MAC’s Penultimate Eyeliner pen but wanted to try something different. I’m loving this so far, the tip is very thin meaning you get a nice, even line.
So there you go. Don’t forget to come follow me over on Instagram if you’re not already, my handle is simplysorcha.
Oh and, happy Friday!
