Oh dear, the focus is terrible on that... I apologize. Someone once told me my fingers are extremely short in comparison with the rest of my hand. I have to agree. Don't mind the lipstick swatches. Which brings up one of my favourites of right now. Revlon Lip Butters! These are awesome new lip balm / lip sticks that I have been obsessed with lately. They are right in the middle of the two, I would say. I picked up a few, they're very hard to find right now since they're new and we usually get stuff way after they are out in America, so I'm surprised I could find any at all.
From left to right they are Raspberry Pie, Peach Parfait, and Candy Apple.
Another favourite beauty item lately is a set of perfumes from Tocca. These are the travel set of three of their most popular fragrances. I believe the set is called Tocca Eau de Parfum Viaggo, which I think means travel in Italian. Forgive me if I am wrong.
Included are 15 ml beautiful little glass bottles of Stella, Florence, and Cleopatra. Each fragrance by Tocca is the namesake of a fabulous woman, which appealed to me highly. To be truthful, the gorgeous little bottles themselves appealed to me highly as well. Stella is Italian and smells of blood orange at first but then deepens to a Sandalwoody sort of smell. Florence is Parisian and to me smells just like gardenia. It also has a slight jasmine smell. I find gardenia and honeysuckle smell similar so I would also say this smells of honeysuckle. Finally, the one I was really excited about was Cleopatra, which of course is named for the Queen of the Nile herself. If you know what Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely smells like, this is extremely similar. It has a warm, almost heady scent but I don't find it too old fashioned for me, and I am only 19.
I nearly forgot my most favourite of all favourites. I would like to introduce everyone to my new companion and dearest friend, Mr. Gordo:
He is a Pillow Pet and I love him :)
I also discovered how to turn the sepia setting on my camera on... , I have only had this camera for two years hahaha.
Minus the laptop on the bed, doesn't this look super old fashiony? I was thrilled with it! No, I don't make my bed properly ever. It has sheets on it and the blankets are all in proper order, that's good enough for me. Please don't judge.
And finally, to conclude this scatter brained post I wanted to show some updated pictures of my dressing room / closet. I am thrilled with it. The goal with this room has always been for it to look like the kind of dressing room Satine would have had in Moulin Rouge. Victorian and Bohemian. Also mixed with some crazy Jenn touches. My brother is a film student and has returned home for Christmas and stumbled upon my decor (since it always changes). He says I should be a set dresser because not a space is left blank and it's extremely quirky and eccentric. I'm not sure if that's a compliment... but I'll take it! I don't like blank space... modern Scandinavian simplistic decorating is my worst nightmare. Haha. That'll tell you enough about my taste I suppose.
Since I may not be popping in until after Christmas, I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas or whichever holiday you celebrate. Even if you don't celebrate any, enjoy the season and the snow that hopefully will come your way if you live somewhere that gets it! I am in Northern Ontario and we have no snow :( looks like it may not be a white Christmas but I am certain it will be wonderful nonetheless.
Happy holidays and lots of love,
