When I said that I would be keeping busy and catching up with family and girlfriends, I didn’t expect that I really would be so busy!
Saturday morning I headed to boxing, which is still killing me by the way and then spent the entire day (literally from 9am until 8pm) cleaning, redecorating and rearranging our apartment as we were having an Open For Inspection on Sunday.
I have never cleaned so thoroughly in my life, and the apartment has never looked so good, if you ask me.
At least I know that it will stay clean and clutter free with The Husband gone. He is a document hoarder and only drinks bottled water so we always have a million empty water bottles laying around, driving me nuts.
Cristina messaged me asking if I wanted to hit the town and my reply was, Hell Yes.
We ended up having a night of dancing and fun, which ended at sunrise and eating a kebab. Those late night kebabs are killers.
I figured that it was as good a night as any to rock a red lip, and paired it with my ASOS Ponti dress, the one I wore to my work Christmas partywhich split at the bum, but had a thin red belt and the top pinned at the top to create a different look. I don’t have any full length photos so you will have to take my word for it.
I still haven’t fixed the hole in the bum so took a risk and safety pinned it, and wore a black slip underneath for extra protection. So far so good.
I did not feel like putting much make up on so a little bit of eyeliner and some red lips made me feel a tad more dressed up, and ready to face the world.
I just wore my standard red lip combo:
Chanel Liner – Framboise Lip Pencil #37
Chanel Lipstick – Rouge Coco Gabrielle #19
Chanel Gloss (only in the centre of the bottom lip though) - Rouge Allure Lip Gloss Exces #60
It stayed on all night, despite drinking and hoovering a kebab. Did not budge. Best lipstick ever.
I’m ready to try a bright pink lipstick and would love some suggestions on the best ones out there!
I lost my nose.
After my looks fade late at night, the lipstick remains faithful, ha.
My fridge is all ready for Lite n Easy to be delivered tomorrow.
Cannot wait. I’m just doing lunches and dinners.
One of the worst cluttered mess stations in the apartment would have to be our dining table which doubles as a work study area too, even though we have a desk in the spare room (which is really a junk room).
In all honesty, the before photo was actually taken after 80% of the crap was removed and either re-homed in a more appropriate place (read: the bin) or put in the correct spot. The after photo shows what remains on the table, being 2 candle sticks and a bowl of faux apples. This is all I plan on having on the table again.
If The Husband thinks he can come home and mess it up again, he has another thing coming!!
This is a portion of the spare room. I really want to paint the turtle tank stand white, but this would involve emptying the tank and having someone help me lift it, and then painting it which would probably take some effort. I also want a new study desk but of course this will all have to wait until we move house, when we will be buying all new furniture and starting fresh. Fresh to death.
As you can see, the ironing board is up and out of the way, and the gigantor super cool iron has been re-homed onto the desk. I don’t intend on ironing in the next month so these can stay here. The umbrella has been moved to more suitable housing too.
Does anyone else have a junk room? The clutter just never ends.
I found that Essie – Luxedo wears really well, but after a full day of cleaning, it did not stand a chance.
I didn't have time to redo it before I went out so I just had to paint over the chips which I freaking hate doing.
I saw these in Diva yesterday I cant help but think it is ridiculous. People buy these Saint/Church bracelets when they are blessed by the priests, and obviously Diva have decided that they are now fashionable, so why not make a crap plastic alternative.
I want to get this clock up in our bedroom over the bedside table, but not working as the ticking will drive me insane.
None of the clocks in our house are actually functioning as I can hear them when trying to sleep and I lose my shiz.
This clock is actually huge, and totally awesome.
It will match the black and white linen that I have on the bed at the moment.
I redeemed my chipped polish look by applying Essie – Fiji, but it took 4 freaking coats to look right.
I had to rush out to go to dinner at Chin Chin with Holly Pop & Cotton Socks and managed to dent it, as usual.
We had a great night, but I am here to say that I don’t get what the fuss is about Chin Chin. Seriously.
The food was good enough, but my king prawns were dry and rubbery. Not awesome.
The service was not great, we were practically snarled at by our waitress who hates life.
You are squished in like sardines with the people at the next table so close that they can hear your conversation, and mock you openly. Losers.
Luckily I was in great company!!
How cute is my niece playing in my shoes. They aren’t even that big on her, which is a worry!
So, how was your weekend?
