Two weeks in instagrams

So firstly, I broke my toe. The word "mangled" was actually thrown around by the A&E doctor. But to get over it, I got 2 for 1 birthday cocktails at B@1, the most amazing birthday brownies made by my mum, and a lazy sunday curled up on the sofa with Scout before coming back to London.
I also got to go to Pinkberry yesterday for FroYo (: in between trying on every single coat in Westfield.

So overall not too bad a start to the year (:

Hair cut & other changes

So that happened. In other news, I've moved (: more on that later, and it's nearly my birthday. It feels weird because I'm gonna be old, but at least I'm still a student, not a proper adult aha.

I have become completely OBSESSED with make up lately.
So today I took my first ever trip to the Mac Store, which was very exciting, wanting to pick up some eyeshadows. I wanted something I could wear everyday, so neutral colours, and I thought that I would get   one light and one dark to wear together.
After a lot of swatching and deliberating I settled on Phloof! and Shale.

Phloof! is a "Frosted Off-White" according to Mac, and I think it's so pretty. I was torn between this and Shroom, which I think is quite similar, but in the end Phloof! seemed slightly less white. (And also the name is adorable.)

Shale is "Mauve-Plum with subtle shimmer", which is basically bang on the money. I went in thinking that I would get Satin Taupe, but ended up with this instead which is more purpley. 

They are both so beautiful and I can't wait to wear them (:

You're sweet just like the sun

Listening to The All-American Rejects has made me very nostalgic today; I feel weird.
A lot of my fondest memories and the strongest feelings of nostalgia always come from the worst times in my life. I wonder why that is.

Favourites #1

Recently I have found my self spending a fair amount of time in the Beauty Guru part of youtube, and one of my favourite things that they do over there is 'favourites' videos, where, unsurprisingly, they talk about their favourite beauty products of that month.
This gave me the idea to start writing blog posts about my general favourite things of the month. But when I started to list ideas for my first post there were so many that it would be a very long and overwhelming post, so I'm going to make posts about individual things whenever I feel like it. 
I like this way better because I think giving each thing it's own entry makes it even more special (:

So my favourite thing for today (mainly because it is the only one I have managed to take a photo of so far) is my new bunny lamp

I've been lusting after this one by Heico for a year or so now but it is waaayyyy too expensive for my little student budget. So when I saw this miniature version last week in Urban Outfitters for only £8.00 I was very excited, and my lovely mum bought it for me (:
It's so adorableee!! And therefore it is my current favourite.
