Oh the shameless selfie… As I was awkwardly approached last week at work for a picture for the yearbook I felt myself tumble into some sort of awful pit of dread knowing that I would never approve of the picture to be snapped. Kind of funny for a girl who enjoys a good picture of herself (no shame here…). The thing is, I like being the one taking that picture, I like being in charge. I like knowing that I can sit or stand there until I get it right. The only other person I feel comfortable enough to get to snap a picture of me is my dad.
Needless to say, I approached my coworker in a frenzy worrying about them using that terrible picture (that I never even saw). She simply replied jokingly “Well why don’t you send me a selfie then.” Joke or not, I am taking her up on it.
This is what I came up with:
Anyway, I thought I’d turn this into a bit of a beauty post… So,
Eyeshadow: Mac (Malt & Vanilla) Eyeliner: Marc Jacobs Mascara: Marc Jacobs.
Eyebrows: Mac (Tempting Eyeshadow) and Marc Jacobs brow gel.
Foundation: Lancome. Concealer: Marc Jacobs. Loose Powder: Mac Mineralize Powder
Bronzer: Okay. My bronzer is actually a mineralize blush from Mac in a dark tawny shade. But it works for me.
Blush: Mac mineralize
Lips: Yves Saint Laurent Sheer Candy in Succulent Pomegranate (new favourite lip product OF ALL TIME!)
April means I’m finally putting my boots away and replacing them with sandals, wedges and everything in between. I mentioned to you my new kicks from Forever XXI last week, but here they are after a full day of being shown off to the world. Lots of compliments, lots of comfy and certainly the cheapest pair of shoes I have ever bought.
I had a bunch of dresses fitted for me yesterday after work. I always love going to the tailor as I feel like some sort of model/princess/winner and I love the feeling of taking action over my wardrobe. I can’t wait to share with you when I pick them up! Leather to lace is on its way.
Okay, so it is rare that I ever allow this thought to cross my mind but after feeling like I pulled every muscle in my leg playing dodgeball on Wednesday, Thursday I could do nothing but limp like a gimp in a pair of sneakers. Very much worth it though as I kicked butt and the balls of my feet were quite thankful for a rest.
Who’s the leader of the club that’s made for you and me?
I did a teeny bit of damage at Forever 21 which arrived in the mail on Thursday evening. I had never bought footwear from there but as I added a couple dresses and blouses to my shopping cart for work, I stumbled across these and just couldn’t say no! I am -such- a kid in so many ways.
I have a few things coming up on instagram so don’t forget to follow @talktomyshoes
Happy Saturday to all my readers, I hope your weekend is relaxing!
I saw these Louboutins in New York last summer and they have been etched in my mind ever since. It is rare I see something like this that sticks with me so much but for some reason I think they are just goofy enough.
