Sorry for the lack of updates lately me lovlies, but I have been getting sick on and off for the past week and this week I have finally come down with the flu.
No, not the swine kind, just the normal boring kind.
As a result I have not done anything shopping, cooking or beauty related.
No, wait, I lie, I bought face masks from The Face Shop and a dress...not from The Face Shop xD.
I saw this dress and instantly fell in love with it, it's gray lace with very intricate beading, such a refreshing difference from all the other shiny satiny party dresses out there. It's a stretch fabric so it's quite forgiving on the *hips that I've suddenly grown (*not really hips, more like love handles but hips sound better >.<).
I'm scared of the neckline, I will definitely be using double sided tape!
I have absolutely no idea what jewellery or makeup I'm going to wear, I am absolutely useless when it comes to these things. Dramatic smoky eye with nude lips? Subtle eye with red lippy? Do you ladies have any suggestions?
I hope I am not still sick on Friday >.<
On the cooking front, I made dinner for le pookster's parents the other night, sort of an early Christmas dinner as his mom is going overseas for Christmas. I was terrified, I've never cooked a large meal and his mom is Buddhist vegetarian so no meat, no eggs, no garlic and no onions. I've never made a strictly vegetarian meal in my life! I made steamed miso tofu, mushroom risotto, steamed fish (for Pookie and his dad) and grilled veggies. This was my first time making risotto, I didn't realise you had to stir so much!!! No wonder Ramsay is always screaming and shouting when his contestants make risotto! In the end it all came together, the food all came out fine, and his mom even took all the leftovers home! I'll take that as a compliment xD.
No photos because I was too busy during the cooking to take any and too hungry to take any after cooking xD.
I also got a haircut today:
Sorry, no full frontal, I'm a bit paranoid about posting photos of my face.
While I was waiting for my antibiotic prescription, I noticed that the Calvin Klein makeup line was available at my local Rexalls drugstore. You'll remember that the line was discontinued at Sephora a while ago. The ones I saw were prepackaged kits with 5 or 6 products in a box for $40. If you're wanting to snag yourself some of the collection, do check it out.
I also noticed Twilight Volturi makeup sets for $35 for a set of 5 products. For all you die hard fans, that's at London Drug.
La la la that is all, back to Neocitran and electric blanket.
