Stop and Smell the Roses: Week 9

Happy Wednesday, you beautiful people!

Well as you know, it's that time of the week again! The day where I link up with the beautiful Mandy for the Stop and Smell the Roses Vlog Link-Up! I absolutely LOVE coming home from a busy day knowing I can enjoy a big cuppa tea and watch all of the other videos. It's seriously on par with a great chick-flick. Super duper awesomesauce. I officially heart Wednesday's.
This week, although I tried hard not to ramble on...I did. I'm sorry I'm still slightly over the 4 minute mark, but it's a vast improvement on last weeks. Haha. In order to keep the time shorter I've refrained from telling the story of how today on the train I blew a bubble while talking to my friend Laura. So I shall do that now. Yep, you read that correctly. I actually managed to blow a bubble people (which clearly must have been made out of spit as my Mom hasn't washed soap out of my mouth since I was 7 years old...) How DISGUSTING but altogether HILARIOUS is that, please? This is no joke, I'm for cereal. Have you EVER seen someone blow a tiny bubble (while pronouncing the word this) that floated out of their mouth during an entirely serious conversation? Laura and I laughed so hard we nearly peed our pants. How the heck am I sculpting young minds when I blow spit bubbles as I talk? EW! Haaaahaha.  Anyway...now that you're all appalled by my behavior, and I've shared something with the world that is entirely inappropriate, I'll leave you to watch this weeks video :)

HAHA! How attractive is this thumb nail?! I look like a serial killer. I blame my sickness.

(there is an American site for the dry shampoo, so you will be able to get it back in the states! Yay!)

Thanks so much for stopping by, guys! Wherever you are, I hope you have a lovely Wednesday!

Lots of love, love, love,

  1. OK, no joke, I was seriously going to comment about how gorgeous your eye makeup looked and then you talked about what you use. Fabulous! :) I'm such a cheapo when it comes to makeup, but it looks like it might be worth the investment!

    1. Aw you're so sweet! Thanks for the compliment! :)
      But seriously trust me, it kills me a little inside to buy super pricey make-up (it's ridiculous these days how much it costs!) but this is SO worth it, Brittany! I've used it every day for 4 months and I've still got LOADS left! It lasts so long that you don't need to re-apply and use a ton. Definitely worth the investment girlie! :) xoxo

  2. You are just stinkin gorgeous in your vlogs. I mean, I want your skin. And your hair. And your cute clothes. Okay...this is sounding creepy. Ha!! But listen...I am seriously going to look into that eye makeup pallet because I am ready to switch my routine up. I suck at doing makeup. I think you need to do a tutorial :-)

    Hope you are having a lovely day! Lets catch up later over a spoonful of nutella :-) xoxo

    PS...the bubble story made me laugh loud enough to scare my dog :-)

    1. Oh shush ya weirdo, you're biased because we're twins. And on top of that, you know you're a sexy babe with perfect skin and hair and cute clothes too ;)

      Seriously though Jen, you've GOT to check it out! I promise it's well worth it. It's the best make-up I've ever bought, it lasts ages and that palette gives you SO many different looks - you'll be able to use it for a good 5+ months, even more if you don't use it every day.

      BAHAHA - me do a make-up tutorial? I poke myself in the eye with my mascara wand on a daily basis. Not too sure anyone would want to watch that and hear the profanity that comes out my mouth as I contemplate if I've blinded myself.

      Can I interest you in an Oreo dunked a Nutella hot chocolate? Yes? Good. ;) xoxo

  3. Ok, you are the 4th person to talk about that eye makeup. I am pretty attached to my Mac, but I think you may have just sent me over the edge and I may branch out and try it! Your eye makeup looks gorgeous! Every week after I watch your vlog I always want to text you or call you! Ha! Is that weird? Kinda, but I do love you! You are adorable!

    1. I love Mac make-up too, it's what I wore on my wedding day :) But seriously, you HAVE to try out this palette! You'll be hooked just like I was!

      Hahaha! So not weird, I feel like that about you! If I lived near you I could see us going out for lunch and yapping about pretty much everything under the sun for about 80 hours. No joke! You need to get WhatsApp messenger so we can txt for FREE and become phone buddies, too! ;) xoxo

  4. Hello, precious! So beautiful as always. I saw that dry shampoo the other day and almost picked it up! I think I will turn around and get it. Also, I'm a HUGE fan of the Naked palette. It's all I use every day and I even bought a new tube of the primer because I love it so much. Are you wearing the darker colors today? Your eye makeup is flawless. Have a lovely week!! xxox

    1. Thanks for the sweet comment babydoll :) Def check out the dry shampoo, I promise you'll be hooked too! :) If you can find that volumizing one I highly recommend it. Just be sure to only spray a bit of it on the roots at a time, otherwise you'll look as if you've got white roots. Hahaha!

      Yay! Another Naked Palette lover! High five! ;) I was wearing Smog on the bottom, with a light layer of Toasted over that. Then I blended it up toward the brow line with Sin. I had Virgin just under the brow :) That's my favorite combination! Check it out! I think it would look lovely with your hair and skin tone! :)

      Have a lovely week hunny. Thanks for stopping by! xoxo

  8. I have never used dry shampoo. My hair gets greasy on day 2 and I never feel like I can hide it because I have fine hair. As for the makeup, I swear everyone has been talking about that eye shadow and I want to try it!

  9. I just found your blog through Mandy's after posting my own vlog tonight. I have to say, I'm quite jealous of you being abroad! What fun! I'm an elementary school teacher, and I love it. I have some curly hair that I hate to wash every day, and I am going to have to try that stuff you showed. It looks awesome! Have a great week! Feel better soon, too. =)

    1. Hi Leah!! Thanks for stopping by! :)

      High five to all of the elementary school teachers out there! Ha! What grade do you teach? :)

      Naturally I have SUPER curly hair too, I even use it when I don't straighten my hair. Just make sure that when you spray it on the roots of your curly hair you are VERY liberal (if you spray too much it goes like a white - kinda like if you dumped a bottle of baby powder on) When my hair is curly I can't really brush through it because it goes unbelievably frizzy - so if I spray too much I massage it into the roots with my finger tips. If you've straightened your hair and spray it on, you can just brush out the excess. Other than that it works a treat! I think you'll love it! Especially on those mornings you're feeling totally unmotivated to 'primp' haha :)
