Marvelous in my Monday

This post is long overdue. It took me a while to reemerge from the rabbit hole

I mentioned here a while ago that I had met Johnny Depp…

I think it is time to clear the air and tell you about my marvelous weekend:

 

First things first: I sadly did not actually hang out with Johnny Depp. My dad may have some cool friends, but he hasn’t ventured into befriending members of the Hollywood territory (just yet).

The Mad Hatter

The Mad Hatter

So if this isn’t Johnny Depp, who is it?

Well, my dad and his fiancé hosted an Alice in Wonderland themed costume party a few Saturdays ago. Everyone put some effort into dressing up as either Alice, the Queen of Hearts or the Mad Hatter (Sadly didn’t see any caterpillars). This gentleman put in slightly more effort than others, with an outfit so lifelike he could’ve just walked right off the set of Tim Burton’s movie.

I was also very excited to spot a couple dressed as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumm 🙂

I went as the Cheshire Cat, and luckily for me, my idea remained unique.

I found my outfit online and was slightly worried it would look a tad bit too “unappropriate”. Thankfully it was actually a cute dress with accents of the original Cheshire Cat colours (pink and purple). Wanting to also incorporate the newer version of the cat (blue), I decided to wear my favourite heels and blue cat contact lenses.

My makeup was also matching: pink eyeshadow with purple eyeliner on one side, purple eyeshadow with purple eyeliner on the other and lots and lots of Givenchy Noir Couture purple velvet mascara – I was happy to finally have an occasion to purely use coloured mascara and see what it looks like (I normally do a mix of black and colour for an extra pop). I also wore purple-pink-ish lipstick.

Obsession Alert: Code Red!

You guys. It is murder working at a magazine. I am SURROUNDED by all the products I want to try and I can’t do more than just test out a little on my hand… so sad 😦

I’ve resorted to drowning my sorrows in spoonfuls of peanut butter and endless Sephora “loves”. Seriously, it is an issue. I just bought a 500 g jar two days ago and it is already half empty.

Whoops

I tend to spoon feed myself more upon utter excitement, like when I found this eye cream. If only it weren’t so expensive…. and nut butter so calorific…

Whoops again

Also, I NEED this in my life. It would a) be “parfait” and b) my first Chanel makeup purchase… you have to start somewhere… the only thing is I can’t quite convince myself to spend the money on it because the colour is outrageously similar to this. But it’s Chanel so it should be ok.. right?

Have you guys watched Girl Code? It used to be on at the gym at SLC, and I found it ridiculous then – but after finding some relatively funny gifs and memes on Pinterest (that are sadly very accurate and applicable to me) I thought I would actually watch an episode without mute turned on. Now I am officially hooked. Goodbye social life… oh wait that’s gone anyways this weekend as I decided to stay here and know NOONE! I do have my eye on a cute barista though…..

Speaking of working out: I found an amazing gym here! I can’t wait to train more frequently…

Oh I also wouldn’t mind a Lancôme lipstick or two… don’t blame me, blame Instagram like I do

Also, anyone want to take me to Paris sometime soon?

Because Maison Guerlain has opened the mothership of all beauty heavens. It’s an oasis full of everything from makeup to an in-house spa to a restaurant… It’s number 68 – I can’t believe I was so close last time!

That was outside Louis Vuitton, but I would have rather seen Guerlain

my problems people… seriously…;)

And can someone find me this lock?

It’s currently my background on my phone!

Oh and on a completely non beauty/dance note, I love this song and this one, and this one

Actually maybe it is a slight dance note, as I can feel choreography-inspiration coming my way. You know I always seem to dance more after going to the gym? Weird…

Question of the day

What things are making your heart beat faster lately?

Therapy for the Conceal-a-holic

As you could expect, healthy recipes have been on my mind lately. Due to lack of time however, I know it isn’t realistic for me to spend a lot of time meal-planning, shopping and cooking. I know myself too well, and I know that once I get to a Whole Foods, or any health food store, I generally want to meander about and look for the next best thing, so I avoid it and bookmark everything I plan to make over Christmas 😉

Like this Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

I’ve also been hoping to try these Fudgy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies

Oh and I have an ever-growing wish list, like this Lush Facemask 

Or anything from the Marc Jacobs Beauty Collection I’m especially in Love with his nail polish Le Charme, or Oui, and adore the eyeliner.. and everything else!!

Givenchy has done it again..this mascara has been tried and tested in mini. Shall I just purchase an early Christmas present for myself and ask my family for love and gluten-free food instead?

My, oh my, being much more into sports means I want the fashionable territory.. Lulu Lemon anyone?

Forever 21, forever my fav

..to be continued 😉
